The Hyundai Enduro Concept Is a Crazy Space Velosterfrog Gone Mad!  Apr 6th, 2015 
Generally, when we think of the word “enduro,” it conjures up images of ’70s dudes in boots with metal shin plates riding through dirt for extended periods of time. In the case of Hyundai’s new Enduro concept, our minds are in a rather interplanetary space—the thing’s an amphibian-lookin’ moon buggy injected with mutant Audi Allroad […]

2015 GMC Canyon V-6 4×4 Crew Cab: Smaller Isn’t the Same as Small  Apr 6th, 2015 
We know the new GMC Canyon is a small(er) pickup truck, which should make it a little cheaper to buy and operate, a little handier to maneuver in urban and suburban environments, and a little more sensible for use as daily transportation than full-size trucks. But it also provides an illustration of the elasticity of […]

Peugeot Creates the Frenchest (Read: Weirdest) Food Truck Ever  Apr 6th, 2015 
If food trucks are about as hipster as one can get, what about a food truck as reimagined through a French lens? Thank the stars for Peugeot, then, as we now know how the French would fry up such a vehicle. In this case, it unfolds like a Micro Machines case and is emblazoned with”Le Bistrot du Lion” signage.

Cadillac’s Ellinghaus: “We Need More Interior Differentiation”, Own Switchgear  Apr 6th, 2015 
The last time we sat down with Cadillac marketing boss Uwe Ellinghaus, the idiosyncratic, outspoken German was calling Cad’s German competitors sterile, pronouncing that he didn’t care about customers who had left the brand, claiming that XTS buyers’ money was just as green as ATS buyers’, and put the kibosh on Route 66 in future […] 
Range Rover Evoque Set to Spawn Posh SVAutobiography Model  Apr 6th, 2015

  A Georgia jury returned a quick verdict in a wrongful-death lawsuit against Chrysler alleging that the gas tanks in older-model Jeep Grand Cherokees and Jeep Libertys are prone to fires in rear-end collisions.

West Virginia Governor Bans Tesla Sales  Apr 3rd, 2015 
Bad news for West Virginia citizens looking to buy an American-made Tesla electric car: The Mountain State’s legislature just rammed through a bill that will ban Tesla from selling direct to consumers.

The Importance of Being Earnest: Bentley’s Luc Donckerwolke on the Lincoln Continental Brouhaha  Apr 3rd, 2015 
You’d think that car designers would, on the whole, be some of the more interesting folks in the automotive industry. More often than not, though, beyond their invariably off-kilter eyewear and well-tailored clothing, they’re about as fascinating as you or me, or at the very least they’re rather shy people. Refreshingly, Bentley’s Luc Donckerwolke, responsible for setting […] 
A Giant Lincoln, a Nuclear Civic, and the Answer Remains Miata: The Best from New York’s Theme-less Auto Show  Apr 3rd, 2015 
The 2015 New York auto show was a strange one . . . 
2016 Nissan Maxima Configurator Is Maximally Online for Maximum Maxima  Apr 3rd, 2015 
Nissan did a swell job keeping its 2016 Maxima under wraps until the car was officially unveiled at this week’s New York auto show, but now that it’s out including pricing ($33,235 to $40,685), Nissan can’t wait for customers to start ordering them. And so the automaker has introduced its ingeniously named “Build Yours Now” […] 
Land Rover Won’t Add New Nameplate to Take on Rolls-Royce, Bentley  Apr 3rd, 2015 
  When Land Rover pulled the sheet off of the Range Rover SVAutobiography, its new $200,490 range-topping model, we noted that the rich Rover is the ultimate SUV—at least until the SUVs from Rolls-Royce and Bentley arrive. That got us thinking, however: How would Range Rover adapt to this new world order where it doesn’t offer […]

In what may go down among the least exciting American road trips in recorded history—understand we’re not talking about the feat itself—a team of six Delphi engineers completed the first cross-country trek in an autonomous car.

GM’s Mark Reuss: Cadillac Isn’t Ready for a Sports Car, Chevy Code Is Dead, Small-Block V-8 Isn’t in Danger  Apr 3rd, 2015 
Cadillac’s new CT6 will not be the brand’s flagship, the new Ford Mustang did not influence the soon-to-debut new Chevy Camaro, and the small-block V-8 is not going anywhere. So said GM executive vice president Mark Reuss in a discussion with reporters at the New York auto show. Reuss described the company priorities thusly: “to […]

“Rapide” Indeed: Aston Martin Developing Electric Rapide—with 1000 Horsepower?  Apr 3rd, 2015 
Aston Martin’s funkalicious electric DBX concept is the precursor to Aston’s upcoming crossover. But it’s also the precursor to something else: Aston’s first all-electric model.

Cue the Sad Trombone: Top Gear Set Dismantled by BBC  Apr 3rd, 2015 
When BBC director general Tony Hall announced that Jeremy Clarkson’s Top Gear contract would not be renewed, the executive was quick to emphasize that the show would go on for another season.

Honda U.S. Executive: “I Don’t Give a Damn About Nissan”  Apr 3rd, 2015 
It’s rare in the auto business to get a juicy interview like the one the Detroit News bagged from a top Honda executive at the New York auto show. It’s even better when that executive is trash-talking a rival company. Add some allegations and an expletive—and wham! Instant news. “I don’t really give a damn […] 
Aston Martin Would Do Autonomous Car, DB9 Replacement to Get Adapted Mercedes Infotainment  Apr 3rd, 2015 
Clinging to tradition can usually be excused at Aston Martin, given its habits include stunning cars and thundering V-12s. But facing pressure from competitors and CAFE regulations alike, Aston Martin is suddenly busting modern moves, including its New York auto-show announcement that an electric Rapide sedan is afoot. Perhaps flush with futuristic ideals, Marek Reichman, Aston Martin’s design […]

How Much Will a 2016 McLaren 570S Cost? Now We Know  Apr 2nd, 2015 
According to Donna Falconer, the product manager for McLaren’s new Sports Series models, the 2016 570S “is going to be the most attainable and usable McLaren to date.” Put another way, the new sports car was created purely to bring McLaren down into the almost-affordable realm occupied by still-pretty-expensive rides such as the Porsche 911 Turbo […] 
Mercedes-Benz GLK Replacement Will Come in “Coupe” Form, Too  Apr 2nd, 2015 
As BMW does, Mercedes-Benz must do. And vice versa, of course. So, given the fact that BMW is now selling its X3 SUV additionally in X4 “coupe” guise, it naturally follows that Mercedes-Benz will be introducing a fastback coupe version of its compact SUV, too. When it goes in for its redesign, the Mercedes-Benz GLK […]

Talking Poop and Santa Cruz With Hyundai’s Head of Product Planning  Apr 2nd, 2015 
Hyundai’s vice president of corporate and product planning, Mike O’Brien, is a car guy.

But while his garage may be a shrine to a bygone era […]

New 2016 Nissan Maxima Hides Mild Mechanicals Beneath Wild Styling  Apr 2nd, 2015 
Large semi-premium sedans serve two purposes. On rental lots, they attract expense-account customers looking to upgrade from a mid-size.

2016 Chevrolet Spark Revealed: GM Lights a Fire Beneath its Tiny Hatchback  Apr 2nd, 2015 
Typically, if an automaker were to brag that it bumped one of its redesigned models’ output by 17 percent, we’d be fairly impressed. But as with, well, pretty much every aspect of the supertiny Chevrolet Spark, a size-driven relativity check is in order. For 2016, the Spark is all-new, and it arrives packing 17 percent […]

2016 Kia Optima Photos and Info: Larger and Optimized for Sales Growth  Apr 1st, 2015 
The Kia Optima’s prior full redesign was somewhat shocking. Formerly a forgettable-looking, cheaper sibling to Hyundai’s Sonata, the Optima suddenly became the hotter of the sisters. Courtesy of ex-VW Group designer Peter Schreyer, Kia’s family sedan looked like the Passat we could’ve had if VW hadn’t dowdified the thing when they enlarged the car for the American market. Five […]

In 2012, when Chevrolet last redesigned the Malibu, the result seemed steeped in indifference—especially compared with the increasingly inventive competition such as the stylish Hyundai Sonata and the Ford Fusion.

The last-generation Chevy Malibu hybrid was sort of an also-ran among H-labeled sedans: Best characterized as a “mild” hybrid system, the getup netted EPA ratings of just 26 mpg city and 36 highway.

Volkswagen R-Line Concept: The Sportiest Beetle of the Bunch  Mar 31st, 2015 
The current production Beetle R-Line occupies a curious spot in VW’s lineup. The sportiest Beetle of the bunch, it doesn’t do anything the fantastic GTI can’t for roughly the same money.

VW’s New Wave: Beetle Wave Concept Is Orange and Houndstoothy  Mar 31st, 2015 
Of the Beetle concepts VW is bringing to the New York show, this Wave convertible is probably the tamest, and it’s the one with orange paint and a houndstooth-trimmed interior. The color is called Habanero Orange, which makes us want to go get Buffalo wings, while the upholstery is intended to evoke the 1950s and ’60s. There’s also […]

Ditch the Jeans: VW’s Beetle Convertible Denim Updates an Old Tradition  Mar 31st, 2015 
“Jeans.” It’s a friendly word. Happy, comfortable, casual. “Denim,” however, has seedier undertones. It’s all heavy metal, ’70s-biker, and Tom of Finland illustrations. Since the 1970s, VW has produced a number of “Jeans” editions of the Beetle. But at this year’s New York auto show, the friendliest people’s car is going Denim. Alongside the Wave, […]
