2013-up Subaru BRZ
by Jon Paulette

While there's something wonderful about having more horsepower than you need, raw power isn't the only way to have fun in a car. There are plenty of grins to be had in a well-balanced car with the right combination of motor, manners, and moxie. Like, for example, the Subaru BRZ.

2007-2014 Cadillac Escalade
by Jon Paulette

Even in a parking lot full of SUVs (i.e., most parking lots), this truck stands out from the crowd. And, if you're like most Escalade owners, that's totally okay with you. If you wanted to blend in, you could take your pick of nice, bland luxury sedans. But what fun would that be?

by Jon Paulette

2003-2011 Lincoln Town Car
by Jon Paulette

Quiet, comfortable, and unapologetically enormous, the Lincoln Town Car was the last of the old-school, full-size, rear-wheel drive American luxury cars. With plenty of space and yards of factory sound insulation, the Town Car can be a wonderful environment for a new car audio system.

by Jon Paulette

Suzuki doesn't sell cars here anymore, but their SX4 is still a very nifty car that's a lot of fun to drive. Replacing that tired old factory stereo system with a new receiver and speakers will make your Suzuki an even more enjoyable way to get around town.

Crutchfield's Vehicle Research Team has assembled a database of over 25,000 vehicles. Here's how they do what they do — and how it helps make your car stereo installation go smoothly.

The smart fortwo coupe isn't everybody's cup of chai tea, but if it's yours, you're probably going to like it a lot. You'll definitely want to upgrade the audio equipment, though. Just because you're driving a tiny car doesn't mean you have to put up with a tinny stereo.

2012-up Fiat 500
by Jon Paulette

If you're looking for a (very) small car that's made for living in the city, the Fiat 500 is a great choice. It's economical, easy to park, and a ton of fun to drive. If you're looking for ideas on how to upgrade the Cinquecento's rather weak factory stereo, you've come to the right place.

1997-2002 Pontiac Firebird
by Jon Paulette

There's something to be said for continually improving on a good idea. By the 2002, the Firebird was the best it had ever been at doing what ponycars do - accelerating quickly, handling well, and looking cool. These cars are still a blast to drive, and a new stereo makes it even better.

2003-2008 Hyundai Tiburon
by Jon Paulette

The 2003-08 Hyundai Tiburon is an affordable choice for anyone looking for a sporty runabout with plenty of potential. It's the kind of car you'd actually want to buy -- not because it's cheap, but because it looks good and it's fun to drive.

Ford's long-running Crown Victoria (and its cousin, the Mercury Grand Marquis) isn't just a big car; it's a big part of our shared culture. They don't make 'em like this anymore, and with some upgraded audio gear, you can make your car a great place to enjoy music in style.

With a nimble chassis, handsome styling, and plenty of optional features to choose from, the Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan were immediate hits. Whichever one you choose, you'll have a smart, comfortable car with plenty of potential for audio upgrades.

A mid-cycle update refreshed and refined the Chrysler PT Cruiser. If you're looking for a versatile car with character to spare, the PT is a solid choice. There's plenty of space for you, your family, and your stuff. And, of course, a great stereo system.

2003-2008 Honda Pilot
by Jon Paulette

The first-gen Honda Pilot has been a suburban staple for years, and this handsome hauler remains a solid choice if you're looking for a comfortable SUV. The Pilot's stock stereo isn't bad, but if you're a real music lover, you'll want to upgrade.

In Part 2 of our Car Stereo Proving Ground series, we added a bass system (subwoofer and amp) and an amplifier to the speakers. Anyone who's ever done this won't be surprised to hear that the music opened up and sounded better. What really impressed us? Read on....
