Driver

2000 Jaguar S-Type

I had pole position for this -- stoplight Grand Prix. Front row, curb lane.

2000 Ford Focus

Can Europe's reigning Car of the Year be a success in North America? Ford hopes so, because it is pretty much betting the farm on the 2000 Focus.

2000 Cadillac DeVille

What's the most technologically advanced car in the world? Mercedes Benz S Class? BMW 750? Jaguar XJ8? How about the 2000 Cadillac De Ville?

2000 Mercedes-Benz S430

Mercedes-Benz sees the smiling front end of its all-new 2000 S-Class sedans as symbolic of the cars' leaner, lighter, more accessible nature.

2000 Mercedes-Benz E-55

Driver

2000 Nissan Maxima

In my experience, people who own Nissans love Nissans. But because about half the owners of even the bestloved models tend to change brands every three or four years, a carmaker must continually persu

2000 Volkswagen Jetta VR6

The jaunty new Jetta sedan is further proof that Volkswagen's daring Mexican gamble has paid off big time.
