  • So, can you trigger an advanced green by stopping on cut lines?

  • Honda has just confirmed the latest Civic Type R, and since we’re already getting the hatch it’s based on, this might be the one that is finally coming to our shores. The car they showed off today is still a prototype, but the production version should be pretty much the same when it arrives in late 2017.

  • Mostly because it’s handy, flexible, decent on fuel and comfortable, I like the Honda Ridgeline.

  • Volkswagen has been teasing their all-new EV concept for a while now but the automaker has made sure that the sketches were more tease than reveal. But now they've released full renderings of the electric hatchback that VW has called "as revolutionary as the Beetle was" when it launched. While this is a concept and not a launch of a new car, VW seems insistent that this is what the real deal will look like.

  • You got heaps of horsepower and torque, forward thrust largely unmatched for the dollar, and Detroit-inspired exhaust noises that made chest hair sprout from anything within earshot.

  • This month's story reinforces the importance of paying attention to warning lights in your instrument cluster, and not ignoring them until next time your ride happens to be in the shop.

  • BMW says that the design of its 6 Series Cabriolet was “inspired by sports boats,” and that it “exudes a maritime air of lightness.”

  • If you’ve got a leased vehicle that’s coming up for return, or if you’re considering leasing your next vehicle, here are some top tips to help you avoid getting dinged for what’s commonly called “excess wear and use” and to help make the eventual lease return process go smoothly.

  • Volkswagen didn't need to decontent the Jetta to chase sales, they needed a car with a bit of character. Bitte schön: here it is.

  • Apple, the California-based consumer electronics company that brought us all the various i-things that have become so ubiquitous since the first iMac in 1998, is reportedly interested acquiring McLaren Technology Group for over $1 billion US. If true, the acquisition would be the biggest acquisition for Apple since the $3 billion purchase of Beats Electronics from Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine.
    

  • This is a vehicle about peace of mind, about helping you tackle the travails of life.

  • As with most things Corvette, the difference lies in the details.

  • The Focus RS is demented, vital, raw, boisterous, and extremely fast.

  • Mercedes seems confident that its car moves to the head of the class in terms of advanced safety and driver assist features that make it more autonomous – or, at least, more capable of taking on tasks normally left up to the driver.

  • Your low-fuel light has come on. Congratulations: you’ve forgotten to feed your ride, and it’s telling you that it’s hungry. You’d best feed it soon, too – as before long, it’ll be dead on the side of the road.

  • Mercedes is blowing the roof off of their AMG GT sports car. Revealed yesterday were the GT Roadster and GT C Roadster models. Both share the 4.0L twin-turbo AMG developed V8, but the GT C boosts the GT's 476 hp to a massive 557. Torque is increased from 480 to 501 lb-ft. Both route power through an AMG Speedshift seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

  • Some records were meant to be broken. Others, not so much. Think of the world's fastest airplane, for example, the SR-71 Blackbird, which carved its name into the history books four decades ago and has yet to be dislodged by more modern technology.

    There are certain automotive records that also seem destined to endure, their longevity assured by either the laws of physics, the unique set of circumstances that made them possible, or sheer stupidity that seems impossible to equal for a second attempt.

  • Nissan is injecting a little bit more sport and a whole bunch more oomph into the 2017 Sentra SR Turbo. The new model gets a 1.6L four-cylinder that is direct-injected and turbocharged to produce 188 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque. That’s a big boost from the 130 hp of the 1.8L four in other Sentra models.
