We slid behind the wheel of the 2023 Porsche 911 Dakar and pushed the lifted sports car to its limits in the sand plumes in the Moroccan desert.

The 2024 Mazda CX-90 made its debut with three rows of seating, a new rear-wheel-drive-based platform, and the choice of turbo-6 or plug-in hybrid powertrains. It's a pretty crossover SUV that seems to punch above its direct rivals in terms of refinement and efficiency, at least on paper.

The 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 received EPA range ratings of up to 361 miles per charge. Besting the longest-range Tesla Model 3, the Ioniq 6 leans on its sleek shape and numerous aero design tweaks to eke out every mile.
