The Lexus LS was one of those game changing cars when it first arrived in 1991.  The original car was initiated by the Toyota chairman himself to be a luxury sedan to beat the best from Europe.  The engineers were told not to use any existing Toyota platforms or engines in their designs and what they came out had to beat out their targets and it did.

  by Ali Arsham
The Audi A3 is one of the best kept secrets out there. Here is an Audi at Toyota prices that still feels and drives like an Audi. The A3 was totally redesigned last year and the US market lost the hatchback version so now all A3 models are sedans. The good news is that there are many improvements along the way.

We drive the Honda Civic EX-L and Civic Si
  by Ali Arsham
The Honda Civic is an amazing car.  The same basic car can be so different.  We sampled our favorite Civic, the Si, along with one of the most luxurious, the EX-L.  They are completely different animals and appeal to different people while they are the same chassis and are priced about the same.  It is an unlikely comparison but it is intriguing.
