With 350 horsepower on tap and an advanced AWD system with a torque vectoring differential that helps the car get through turns, the Ford [NYSE:F] Focus RS is the next evolution of the hot hatch. We've driven it,  we liked, and we are considering it for our 2017 Best Car To Buy award. Will it win? Check back on November 14.

The Audi A4 and Jaguar XE are two new cars in the compact luxury segment, and they go about their work very differently. The XE offers supercharged V-6 power, incredible turn-in response, and a sporty character that should earn it some fans. The A4 is more relaxed, but capable, with a more detailed take on luxury.  We compare them and pick a winner.

With just two races to go in the 2016 Formula One season, the championship is Nico Rosberg's to lose. With so much on the line, we preview this weekend's 2016 Brazilian Formula One Grand Prix.
