Cadillac can’t turn back time to capitalize on shoppers who’ve left sedans for tall-riding crossover SUVs. It can’t take back the bad bet on a diesel powertrain in lieu of hybrid batteries.

Mazda MX-5 Miata: 2018 Motor Trend Best Driver’s Car Contender

Motortrend News Feed - Mon, 09/17/2018 - 12:00

We’ve shown a lot of BDC love for the Miata, lapping six of them over the years. Only the Viper, Corvette, and 911 have garnered more invitations. The world’s best-selling roadster has reached the podium twice, finishing third in 2009 and 2015. Every time this wee David takes on a field of Goliaths, we gush about its light, nimble chassis, excuse its lack of headline-grabbing horsepower, and crab about its excessive body roll. When we heard the lightweight Club model was getting the RF targa’s stiffened rear suspension plus an engine retune with 26 more horses, we eagerly invited it and raised our hopes that this might be the Miata’s year.

Although there was universal agreement that the Stelvio is the Best Driver’s SUV and a true credit to its species, there is still the matter of its avoirdupois, high center of gravity, copious corner-entry understeer, and body roll. Nonetheless, the Stelvio is a trailblazing crossover in a field of supercars.

“Two things: It rolls too much, and it oversteers all the time,” Randy Pobst declared. “I have fun with that, but it’s a better driver’s car if it’s balanced.” The oversteer issue is new, and it’s not power oversteer, so maybe those revised rear suspenders need fine-tuning. The engine is transformed, pulling hard to its higher 7,500-rpm redline instead of petering out before 6,000 rpm. It’s only a tenth quicker through the quarter mile, but it feels lustier and requires less shifting. Pobst used that modest power bump and slidey rear to shave 2.21 seconds off the 2016 Club model’s lap time, though at that pace he faded the brakes in four laps—another new issue.

Editorial opinions were mixed on Route 198. Scott Evans was in love. “The stiffer rear suspension still moves and leans with you but doesn’t bang down on its bump stops,” he said. “It makes you feel like you’re going so much faster.” Jethro Bovingdon disagreed: “It feels terrific when settled under some cornering force but seems all at sea during the transitional phases.” He and Mark Rechtin found the steering a bit vague. Ed Loh took issue with aggressive stability controls that intervened officiously to rein in that inherent oversteer and made things a bit nervous.

Miguel Cortina summed up the staff’s feelings: “There is a lot to like about the Miata – it’s lightweight, with a good engine and swift transmission, and it’s a fun and affordable car to drive.”

Lamborghini Huracan Performante: 2018 Motor Trend Best Driver’s Car Contender

Motortrend News Feed - Mon, 09/17/2018 - 12:00

Every driver hopped out of the Lamborghini feeling invincible. “The confidence is unmatched. It’s so easy to drive at ludicrous speeds,” observed Scott Evans. Mark Rechtin concurred, “This car gave me the most confidence on corner exit.” Erick Ayapana felt “so in tune from the first turn of the wheel and tap of the brake—even through the mid-corner bumps.”

Of course, some will presume that the Lambo’s vast sex appeal swayed us, but all Lambos are sexy. This one’s different, as Angus MacKenzie noted: “Finally, a Lambo that’s as good to drive as it looks. There’s substance behind the style that makes the drive experience live up to the theatrics.” One example, pointed out by Jethro Bovingdon: “The gearbox in Corsa mode gives you a solid jolt in a straight line but imperceptibly smooth shifts in corners.” Everyone lauded the linear throttle response of the big-lunged, banshee-wailing V-10 engine. One major complaint with the interior—the hard-shell seats felt tailor-fitted to a waifish Milanese fashion model.

On the objective performance front, this Huracan lapped WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca 1.68 seconds quicker than the 2017 BDC-winning Ferrari 488 GTB. (Yes, we hope Ferrari counters by sending us a 488 Pista next year.)

Randy Pobst loved everything but the brakes. “I couldn’t get it to stop.” Given the car’s gripissimo Michelin P Zero Trofeo R-compound streetable racing tires and carbon-ceramic discs, he blamed the pad material. It should be noted that Pobst had the same complaint with last year’s Ferrari. Maybe that’s just how they do brakes in the Parmigiano-Reggiano region.

When the rest of us drove it at a sub-Pobstian pace on real-world roads, we liked the brakes. In fact, Evans praised them for lacking the Ferrari’s wooden feel, while Ed Loh and Bovingdon characterized their power as capable of provoking retinal detachment or blackout.

Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio: 2018 Motor Trend Best Driver’s Car Contender

Motortrend News Feed - Mon, 09/17/2018 - 12:00

We’ve never had a SUV at BDC before, but anyone concerned that this two-box family hauler couldn’t keep up discovered their worries unfounded.

“The Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio comes from a different place, a new place, a higher place. I’ve never done a hot lap so far off the ground. I liked it!” Those were Randy Pobst’s first words after dismounting the Stelvio. Others joined the fun, finishing this sentence: It’s not an SUV, it’s … “a two-story supercar,” “a Giulia hatch with a lift,” “a sport wagon in need of an EpiPen.”

Alfa Romeo’s high-rise hot rod earned its invite by winning last month’s comparison test of similarly manic muscle utes. And like the Kia Stinger, this 4,282-pound bruiser defied several predictions of a distant finish largely on the strength of its Ferrari-derived twin-turbo V-6, smart shift calibration, indefatigable brakes, and dynamic-handling-biased all-wheel-drive programming that minimized understeer. Our first-ever BDC ute ranks 83rd among our 119 BDC lap times, 0.01 second behind a 2014 C63 AMG and 0.01 second ahead of a Bentley Continental GT3-R.

The Stelvio raised everybody’s eyebrows on Route 198, as well, demonstrating greater composure than the Audi TT RS over the lumpiest stretches—especially with the shocks set to Soft mode. Its consistently firm brake pedal and linear response inspired great confidence, earning kudos for the programmers of this by-wire artificial feedback system. “Staggering braking power,” Scott Evans said. “I cannot believe how hard this thing stops.” Chris Walton concurred: “Sure-footed, excellent body control, crystal-clear steering, sneaky power, and more effective (though numb) brakes than three-quarters of this field—inspires confidence.” Mark Rechtin wished for “a Stelvio race series so people would watch and say, ‘An SUV can do that?!?’”

Although there was universal agreement that the Stelvio is the Best Driver’s SUV and a true credit to its species, there is still the matter of its avoirdupois, high center of gravity, copious corner-entry understeer, and body roll. Nonetheless, the Stelvio is a trailblazing crossover in a field of supercars.

Chevrolet Corvette ZR1: 2018 Motor Trend Best Driver’s Car Contender

Motortrend News Feed - Mon, 09/17/2018 - 12:00

We were ready to lap the ZR1 at the end of day one at WeatherTech Raceway, but the Chevy team begged for a morning run in the cool, dense air. Perhaps they should have let the afternoon heat rob this 755-hp beast of a few wheel-spinning horses, because even in the scorching heat of Route 198, every driver complained about overpowering the rear tires. We’ve seen this movie before: Is Chevy rerunning it to promote its forthcoming, better balanced mid-engine Corvette?

Traction-enhancing plot twists this year include ultra-sticky Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires and a big-wing aero package good for 950 pounds of downforce at top speed. But absent a 180-mph headwind in low-speed corners, even this car’s ultra-savvy traction-control system was utterly overwhelmed. Randy Pobst reckons that with five days and 10 sets of tires he could shave another second-plus off his lap time. But that would still leave the Corvette 1.5 seconds off the pace of our current leaders.

Want EVEN MORE from 2018 Best Driver’s Car? See the cars in action right here.

Merely quick mortals find themselves even farther off the pace they can set in the top-finishing cars. Notes Chris Walton: “The front obeys, but I never, ever trust the rear.” Scott Evans called out its “nerve-wracking ride.” The automatic transmission’s sport-shifting logic and slow shifts—even when using the paddles—drew universal ire. “I’m tired of the excuses,” Jonny Lieberman sniped. “It’s the equivalent of driving an Igloo cooler with 755 horsepower.”

Pluses include its furious engine and exhaust notes as well as the phenomenal binders that allowed Pobst to delay braking until he was “up there where I brake in the 300-hp cars.” The informative head-up display with upshift indicator helps, too.

Ed Loh declared the ZR1 “the best-sounding one here from idle to wide-open throttle.” Guest judge Jethro Bovingdon described it as “so angry—loud enough to wake the dead and sharp enough to sometimes make you think you’re about to join them.”
