This is the 2015 Lincoln MKC. A crossover SUV you have probably seen in a TV commercial more than you have ever seen it on the street.

The headline above refers to the great Buick Roadmasters of the 30s, 40s and 50s, not the station wagon of the 90s.  Those uber-Buicks lived up to their name.  They were masters of the road, a superior means of travel.

The 2015 Buick LaCrosse has captured that spirit in a fully contemporary package.

Ford and General Motors got out of the minivan game a few years back, never to return...conceding defeat to the Chrysler Town and Country, the Dodge Grand Caravan, the Toyota Sienna and Honda Odyssey.

Kia's Sedona sat out the 2013 and 2014 model years, but it's back for 2015.

This is the kind of car that some will tell you is not supposed to exist anymore, that there is supposedly no more market for. Politically incorrect, unapologetically American.  The anti-Prius.

And yet, it not only lives, it thrives. And now it has been refreshed and renewed.

Four and a half months ago, we reviewed the 2015 Mazda 6 i Grand Touring, which was just arriving in showrooms.  Now, it's last year's model.

The 2016 Mazda 6 is not all-new, but rather a "major refresh".  So what's new with this perennial inhabitant of the TireKicker's Best Cars list on the right side of this page?
