2020 Mercedes-AMG GT C review: Power, refinement — you can have it all

Long hood, short deck. The AMG GT has great proportions.


Antuan Goodwin/Roadshow

The Mercedes-AMG GT is a sports coupe that’ll get your blood pumping. No matter if you’re in the base GT or the bonkers GT R, this AMG grabs the attention of everyone when it passes by. This mid-grade GT C tester is no different, offering massive power, impressive looks and no shortage of tech and comfort.

Like

  • Strong V8 power
  • Excellent comfort
  • Looks that could kill

Don’t Like

  • Strange cabin ergonomics
  • Old infotainment tech

The whole AMG GT line benefits from small styling updates this year, but

2020 BMW M235i Gran Coupe review: This small, sporty sedan lacks emotion

The M235i is one of two 2 Series Gran Coupe models on offer.


Emme Hall/Roadshow

The BMW M235i Gran Coupe is a weird little thing. It has more in common with the X2 crossover than the rest of the 2 Series range and it exists as a way for BMW to fight other compact sport sedans like the Audi S3 and Mercedes-AMG CLA35. It’s also not a coupe at all, but I digress.

Like

  • Punchy turbo engine
  • Snappy transmission
  • Good amount of standard tech

Don’t Like

  • Leaves a lot of fun on the table
  • Gets expensive

The M235i uses

2020 Volkswagen Jetta review: Spacious and mature, but hardly exciting

The Jetta’s styling is clean and simple.


Craig Cole/Roadshow

Cars don’t get much more middle-of-the-road than the Volkswagen Jetta. Mature looking and spacious inside, it’s as sensible as a pair of sweatpants, if not quite as comfortable. 

Like

  • Excellent real-world fuel economy
  • Spacious backseat and trunk
  • Solid infotainment system

Don’t Like

  • Occasional low-speed stumble
  • Engine gets winded easily
  • Park-bench front seats

The Jetta migrated to VW’s ubiquitous MQB architecture last year, a platform that underpins a huge range of vehicles in the Volkswagen Group automotive empire, from the Golf hatchback to various Audis, Seats, Škodas and more. This foundational

2020 Audi A6 Allroad review: Where we’re going, we’ll still need roads

This is one good-lookin’ wagon.


Steven Ewing/Roadshow

Not long ago, the Allroad was the closest thing Audi had to an SUV. The original wagon, based on the C5-generation Audi A6 of the late 1990s and early 2000s, had wide fender flares, an air suspension and all-terrain tires, and it really could get you quite far off the beaten path. Hell, some European models even came with a low-range gear. It was a charmingly rugged thing, but as Audi worked to fill its lineup with crossover SUVs in recent years, the Allroad name was relegated to little more than a styling
