  • Are Affordable Finance Deals for New Cars Responsible for the UK Motoring Industry Experiencing Record Growth?

    Motor Heads ~ Motoring News, Reviews & Sport
    23 Jul 2014 | 2:06 am
    The number of new car sales in the UK is rising at its fastest rate in nine years, according to The Guardian; and this is in large part due to an increase in cheap to run cars bought on low finance deals, which has left the British motoring industry experiencing its longest ever period of growth for new car sales. An improved economy, low interest rates and good deals on garage forecourts

  • Volkswagen sends the Eos and Routan to the guillotine after 2014

    23 Jul 2014 | 1:46 pm
    Volkswagen released some details for its new lineup for the 2015 year, which will not include the current Eos and the Chrysler minivan badgineered Routan. Other than the obvious, like the arrival of the entire 2015 Golf lineup, including the base model, the GTI, the Golf R, the e-Golf, and the Golf SportWagen (that replaces the Jetta SportWagen), the Eos and the Routan have been sent to the guillotine and won’t continue into the 2015 model year. This isn’t exactly a surprise because rumors and reports predicted this in the past. The Touareg is scheduled to get a mid-cycle refresh…
  • Report: US diesel sales are up by 25 percent according to study

    23 Jul 2014 | 11:15 am
    The Diesel Technology Forum,, and Baum & Associates conducted a recent study. And in that study, they found that Americans are taking the diesel passenger car concept a little more seriously as sales are reportedly up by 25 percent since last year. With the current rate, the study predicts that the market share of total diesels could double by 2018 as the concept of better fuel economy without a loss in power is more accepted. So far, 46 diesel passenger car models are offered in the US, between 27 cars and SUVs. That said, diesel engines aren’t left for full-size…
  • Ford details new 2015 F150 with some specifications

    23 Jul 2014 | 8:10 am
    The 2015 Ford F150 is just about here and the Dearborn automaker released some details surrounding the new model. Besides the obvious switch from using a traditional steel body to an all-aluminum one, the F150 receives a new base naturally-aspirated 3.5L V6 good for 283hp and 255 lb-ft of torque, allowing for a maximum tow rating of 7,600lbs. The more notable engine however is the highly-anticipated 2.7L EcoBoost V6, which is turbocharged to produce 325hp and 375lb-ft of torque. Click here for more news on the Ford F150. Though Ford still hasn’t released official curb weight figures,…
  • Report: Porsche and Audi are clamoring over platforms

    23 Jul 2014 | 8:04 am
    Automobile Magazine reports that Audi and Porsche are in a little bit of a bind over agreements with modular platforms. According to the article, Porsche is a bit ticked at Audi because the Ingolstadt-automaker rejected Porsche’s latest Modular Standard Platform for adoption as a way to provide a backbone for the next generation Audi A6, A7 and A8. Porsche isn’t satisfied either with Audi’s own MLB Evo platform, designed for the former Auto Union’s large crossover lineup in the Volkswagen Group because they find inadequacies with the suspension system, the electronic…

      Toyota is touting a new “European flavor” for the 2015 Yaris. I’m not sure what that means, but it does evoke bad memories of the chevre I left in my suitcase after coming home from the Paris Auto Show. All jokes aside (and that was bahhhhh-d), our Yaris will likely be built in France, but Toyota is looking for a way to both incorporate that into their messaging, and avoid telling everyone that their new subcompact is built by a bunch of socialist surrender monkeys. It’s not easy to explain the poor economics of building a subcompact car in Japan, but telling…

    General Motors took the step of killing off Chevrolet in Europe earlier this year, and has long attempted to position Opel and Vauxhall as mainstream but slightly more premium offerings (analogous to how Volkswagen was once marketed in the United States). And that makes news of a new line of budget cars all the more confusing. Just-Auto reports that Opel and Vauxhall will launch two new budget models to attract customers who may have previously opted for Chevrolet cars. First is the new Viva, based on the next-generation Chevrolet Spark. A small SUV, set to rival the Dacia Duster, is also…

    The last word in functional, utilitarian crossovers will now move even further towards the middle of the road, as the Honda CR-V adopts a CVT for its mid-cycle refresh. Replacing the outdated 5-speed automatic, the CVT gearbox is, by our own EIC’s admission, a fantastic transmission. Furthermore, nobody buying the CR-V will know the difference, or care enough about it. The bland, practical formula that Honda appears to have perfected has made the CR-V the top-selling crossover for years and years. Don’t expect that to change any time soon.

    Comic-Con 2014 opens tomorrow, but details on many of the big reveals have already been blasting across cyberspace. Pertinent (sort of) to our milieu was Mattel’s release of its Star Wars–themed Hot Wheels cars, but even more mind-blowing is the fact that the company built a full-size, fully operational version of the Darth Vader–themed coupe, which it has dubbed the “Darth Car.” Unfortunately, San Diego, the site of the annual Comic-Con International convention, is more than 2000 miles from our offices in Ann Arbor, so we did the next best thing and got on the phone with the Darth…

In two words, here’s what they have accomplished: Cheap gas! Somerset, located about 130 miles southeast of Louisville, refurbished a shuttered municipal gas station and opened it to the public last Saturday. After complaints from some of the city’s 11,000 residents about unfairly high gas prices during the summer, Mayor Ed Girdler decided to run his own station. City officials told the Associated Press that gas…

We’ve seen a plethora of NSX concepts since the first show property appeared back in 2012, each sporting different colors, badging, grilles, and more over the following months. But we hadn’t seen any of the most recent design out testing until it burst onto the vaunted Nürburgring covered in form-fitting camo wrap. READ MORE ››

Since he was closest, Mister Jolly will receive a Save the Manuals button and sticker as a reward. The Mazda 2 pictured here is a right-hand-drive Japanese-spec model highlighted in Mazda’s press materials. Whereas the outgoing 2 offered Americans only a 100-hp 1.5-liter…

    23 Jul 2014 | 9:33 am
    In announcing output and towing figures for its new twin-turbo 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6, Ford published a video of a towing drag race in which a 2015 Ford F-150 stomped a Ram EcoDiesel and a Chevrolet Silverado with a 5.3-liter V-8. Although we’re not inclined to get excited over manufacturer test runs—we do that stuff ourselves—taken with the 2.7’s 325-hp and 375-lb-ft output ratings, the engine is shaping up to be an appealing option taken alone. (The EcoDiesel is rated at 240 horsepower and 420 lb-ft, the 5.3-liter Chevy at 355 and 383.) But when you consider the mass reduction…

  • Ram claims the lead in towing standards

It's at the heart of every great work truck and something pickup truck customers lean on heavily in making their purchase decisions. That's why automakers proudly tout their towing numbers at every opportunity. But, everybody can't be number one!  No, that bragging right now belongs exclusively to the Ram Truck Brand, thanks to the brand's new towing standards 'scorecard,' that comes straight from the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE).

For the launch of its upcoming 2016 XC90 crossover, Volvo is debuting two new driver assistance systems: run-off road protection and auto brake at intersections. “These two world-firsts are further examples of how new technologies target substantial…

    Like any technology, self-driving cars could potentially lead tomore driver convenience – and a lot fewer crashes – but also to some unintended consequences. One of these, according to a recent FBI report, is the potential for criminals and terrorists to abuse autonomous cars to more easily do their dirty work. In the unclassified but restricted report obtained by British newspaper The Guardian, the FBI said “the risk that distraction or poor judgment leading to collision that stems from manual operation would be substantially reduced” by self-driving cars.

    As more technology comes into the car—from connected services like local search that require accurate input to driver-assist systems that issue a barrage of warnings—drivers will have to process more visual and audible stimuli. And without becoming distracted. One solution to this information overload is head-up displays (HUDs) first used to keep fighter pilots on track and on target. HUDs have been available in cars for years, but mainly in more expensive vehicles. They’re also starting to appear in lower-priced cars like the 2014 Mazda 3 (which we reviewed) by using a small…

Then they stop since the technology doesn’t always work. VR technology has greatly improved and is getting better. But it still doesn’t work well enough to be consistently reliable. I know because I test a lot of cars and try the VR in most of them. (Here’s a shopping tip: To check how well VR works when test driving a new car, use it to enter a navigation destination. If it can get the destination in one shot – meaning as a…

With Google and various automakers developing self-driving cars, it’s generally acknowledged that it’s just a matter of time before technology will take the wheel from humans to help reduce accidents, traffic, fuel consumption, emissions, and road rage. The move to autonomous cars would also have huge ramifications for with mobility limitations, including seniors and the sightless. And it will also change everything from how cars are sold to how they’re insured–if people will even own cars anymore. Giving up cars may seem far-fetched to most Americans.

And for the 2015 model year, it gets some spiffier sheet metal, some equipment tweaks, and, most importantly, a pair of new powertrains. First up, the new Cayenne S E Hybrid. Sharing much of its internals with the Panamera S E Hybrid, the...

    24 Jul 2014 | 12:34 am
    Jul.24 (GMM) Jacques Villeneuve has lamented the lack of "heroes" on today's Formula One grid.

  • 2014 Mercedes-Benz E250 BlueTec – 6 Month Review and Report

    David Goldes
    16 Jul 2014 | 7:55 am
    The arrival of our 2014 Mercedes-Benz E250 BlueTec 4Matic was heralded by not one, not two, but over a dozen major snowstorms and blizzards. As we noted before in these pages, it wasn’t the most optimal time to begin life with a long-term test car but those were the cards we were dealt. The Benz followed our long-term Chevrolet Cruze Diesel into service by roughly one week and it took a while for us to really get to know it. The E250 BlueTec is new for 2014, introduced in conjunction with a refresh of the E-Class family. Indeed, the facelift was rather extensive and the car bears only a…

Nationwide, the average price for a gallon of diesel was $3.913, a $0.085 rise over last year’s cost, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.  Meanwhile, the average price for a gallon of gasoline in the United States was $3.704, an increase of $0.208 from the same time last year.

  • Maximize Your Service Growth with 5 Simple Rules

    23 Jul 2014 | 1:13 pm
    Many dealers will sign up for a marketing product or service campaign with the intention of bringing more customers into their service department in order to increase their customer pay business, improve owner retention, raise CSI and of course build net profits. Since about 60% of the average dealership’s net profit comes from fixed operations, this strategy makes a lot of sense, right? The fact is, many times the results are the exact opposite of what the Dealer expected to achieve. Is it possible to increase retail traffic and improve owner retention with an average CSI rating, while…

A new Appinions’ Influence study released today, found Google to be far and away the leader of the “10 Most Influential Companies” in the autonomous cars sector, a market that saw rapid fluctuations in conversation over the two-month study period steered largely by product announcements and demos.

  • Auto Leasing Rates Back At Pre-Recession Levels

    23 Jul 2014 | 12:14 pm
    Auto leasing rates back at pre-recession levels, according to Benzinga. Auto leasing, once considered the realm of status-conscious drivers and people who need a new ride every three or so years, is making a comeback among U.S. consumers. Bloomberg News, quoting data from, says leases have so far accounted for nearly 28 percent of this year’s new auto sales. That rise in leasing has also been helping overall U.S. auto sales figures, which are reportedly projected to have their biggest year since 2007, before the great recession. Industry analysts, meanwhile, expect auto…

    Whether you’re spiritual, religious, or none of the above, Facebook is finally giving us what we want. For years now we’ve been asking the bottom line question of being able to sell cars through Likes and other engagement metrics via Social Networks such as Facebook. The bottom line was that it was always important to build a community as a branding tool. However using metrics to prove sales was a fruitless number crunching dance for dealerships and their agencies. So what’s this “answer” all about? Facebook is now focusing on Direct Response via its ad platform and a tool known as…

  • SsangYong Rexton W EX

    Staff Writer
    22 Jul 2014 | 7:12 am
    SsangYong has been one of those slightly under-the-radar franchises that has found a niche, with dealers and car buyers, and quietly got on with supplying it. The Discovery-sized Rexton remains a cornerstone model for the brand, selling on a metal-for-money basis, and filling the trailer-tugging market gap left by the original Kia Sorrento. We tested the range-topping W EX version with a five-speed Mercedes automatic transmission, which sometimes engaged with a distinct thump, but was otherwise smooth. The hefty Rexton’s 2.0-litre diesel was surprisingly willing and pretty quiet most of the…

  • Production Begins On Just 100 Maserati Quattroporte Zegna Editions

    21 Jul 2014 | 4:18 am
    For some, owning a Maserati simply isn’t exclusive enough in itself. It wouldn't be a stretch to suggest these might be the same people that prefer to be outfitted in designer threads of the ilk of the famed Ermenegildo Zegna design house. Hence, the Maserati Quattroporte Zegna Limited Edition, which began production of 100 units last week. Boasting a special Platinum Silk paint on the body and 20-inch Mercurio wheels, the Quattroporte Zegna has style and personality in spades. The interior is awash in soft leathers and and smooth fabrics that have color names like moka and greige.
  • Diesel Car Sales Rise 25 Percent in 2014

    21 Jul 2014 | 2:10 am
    Sales of diesel cars in the United States have increased by 25 percent in the first six months of the year, according to a new report. Clean diesel technology, a relatively new addition to the American market, has shown considerable advancement in the past few years. Up until a few years ago, most Americans would probably have associated the word diesel with big pickup trucks and 18-wheelers, spewing black smoke as they churned along the highway. In reality, the stereotype diminished years ago, and the negative stigma has only recently started to disappear. Compared to Europe, where almost…

Through a series of video marketing campaigns, the new Sienna put itself on the map and into the minivan spotlight. Minivans are often the key vehicle for growing families, so it only made sense to give families the chance to introduce the redesigned Sienna. Toyota enlisted the help of three social media driven families, who created a series of videos to introduce the new Sienna.

Under their current plans, Nissan hopes to work step by step to make self-driving cars viable by 2020. The key to Nissan’s program, however, is not to make the controls completely driver-free. Their Autonomous Drive functions would require a person “at the wheel” and in control, presumably to alleviate certain unexpected risks that would otherwise go unsighted in a fully self-driving vehicle.

To help celebrate his life in our own somewhat peculiar way, we're linking to an old post of mine about the car(s) of The Rockford Files.

This car is from my town - Waseca, MN.  It is a 1963 Volkswagen owned by Jan & Dan Dardis (brother & sister).  This VW dunebuggy was build in 1968 by Dan.  He shortened the original chassis by 14 1/2 inches when ditching the original Beetle…
  • Great Commercials--Mel Tormé for Oldsmobile

    Cookie the Dog's Owner
    11 Jul 2014 | 12:01 am
    General Motors got a lot of mileage out of "In My Merry Oldsmobile," the first popular song with an automotive theme, to advertise Oldsmobiles.  For a period of time in the early 1950s, the Olds ad campaign featured "Johnny" and "Lucille," the characters from the song, singing the virtues of the "Rocket" V-8, "Hydramatic" transmission, and "Futuramic" sheetmetal. Here they are in a 1953 installment, in which Johnny is rather abruptly upstaged by jazz singer Mel Tormé. Though clearly flummoxed that his gal Lucille has dumped him for…

This particular Willys was spotted and photographed on the streets of Rocky Ford, Colorado, this past Fourth of July, by my friend Norman Kincaide. It's in gloriously original condition, well-used but solid, and apparently in service as someone's daily driver. The interior is Spartan, but with a certain functional elegance to it that more than makes up for the lack of cupholders and the missing inner door panel on the driver's side.

The Macan's big-brother is continuing to grow up with sharper exterior lines, some new pretty headlamps, a pair of "3D tail lamps", and an injection of that "familial DNA" that Porsche seems to be infusing across their entire lineup these days. The facelift will be launched across four models, including the Cayenne Diesel, the Cayenne S, the Cayenne S E-Hybrid, and the Cayenne Turbo. With the launch of the Cayenne S E-Hybrid, Porsche is…

If so, after reading this blog you will hopefully be able to reply, “No, actually I’m a collector, and here is why I know this to be true…” Back in 2003 when I moved to a different house, there were no TV shows about hoarding like there are today.

    Most veteran Mopar fans will tell you that there was a time not so long ago that any E-body built past the 1971 model year was generally scorned, even after the 1970-’71 models were gaining popularity and value. The reasoning tended to focus on the compromises in power output and styling alterations that occurred later in the E-body’s run. In the case of the Challenger, it was almost as if Dodge were sending a message to muscle fans by dropping the R/T badge and introducing the Rallye package, drawing attention away from absolute power and presenting the model as an all-around…

    Photo courtesy Laguna Seca archives. If you’re taking part in the great automotive Woodstock that is Monterey week next month, an absolutely essential stop is the Rolex Monterey Motorsport Reunion. As if to underscore that fact in a highly auditory manner, the reunion will have the baddest cars ever to turn a wheel on a road course, the cars of the Can-Am Challenge Cup, as its lead category. It’s a very apt selection. For the uninitiated, the Can-Am was a pro-level series put on by the SCCA that ran in its original, rules-free iteration between 1966 and 1974. No single wilder…

  • A Needed Change in our Driving Culture

    22 Jul 2014 | 9:18 am
    Lane Courtesy should be ingrained in our driving culture as a 24/7 practice by everyone on the road. Yet with the summer driving season upon us and vacation traffic flooding the highways, it is apparent that there is much work to do to educate the motoring public about the value of Lane Courtesy. Clearing the left lanes to give right of way to faster vehicles improves traffic flow, reduces congestion, helps alleviate incidents of tailgating and road rage, and lowers accident rates. Given all of these benefits, why don’t we see more official efforts to promote Lane Courtesy? Part of the…
  • What Might That Leak Mean?

    21 Jul 2014 | 7:31 am
    By Eric Peters, Automotive Columnist It’s a little odd to think of it this way, but cars and people are both machines, with systems (circulatory, cooling, hydraulic) . . . and when either leak, it’s cause for further investigation. * Black (or dark brown) drip - Usually, this is engine oil seepage — and it’s usually nothing to worry about if it’s not a steady drip — and if it’s a small drip. A car engine consists of many pieces of metal bolted together, with a gasket sandwiched in between them. The gasket’s purpose is to act as seal between the…
  • 2014 Audi Q5 Diesel

    18 Jul 2014 | 6:30 am
    By Eric Peters, Automotive Columnist Slowly — finally — diesel engines are becoming available in the kinds of vehicles that really could use ‘em : crossover SUVs. These vehicles are bought because they’re roomy, versatile and useful. But their design layout also inclines them toward being large and heavy and less than aerodynamically efficient. Which, in turns, tends to make them pretty thirsty. Diesel engines address this deficit. Some current gen. diesels are also great performers. This ’14 Audi Q5, for instance. It can haul itself to 60 in the mid-sixes. And…

    The new Macan may be getting all the attention lately, but Porsche hasn't forgotten about its larger crossover - the one that put it on the map in 2002 and on the road to profitability, with over half a million sold so far. So to keep the Cayenne at the top of its game, Porsche has announced several key upgrades for the 2015. For starters, Porsche has updated the Cayenne's appearance with new front- and rear-end styling. The front bumper, fenders and hood are entirely new, with air fins flanking the nose to direct air into the intercoolers (each model now being artificially aspirated), and…

    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life When the production Dodge Viper debuted as a 1992 model, it did so as a roadster (though some will argue the big fixed roll hoop and fabric toupee made it more of a targa). When the new-from-the-ground-up 2003 model arrived, the roadster again preceded the coupe version by a couple of years. However, the current car, which debuted as an SRT but, starting with the 2015 model year, will be back under the Dodge banner, is strictly coupe-only, and looks like it will remain so for the foreseeable future. That’s bad news for fans of open-top versions of…

    GM announced six new recalls that cover 717,950 Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC models from the 2010 to 2015 model years. The bulk of the recalls — 414,333 cars — involves late-model GM midsize SUVs, the Chevrolet Camaro sports cars and two Buick sedans, all with power height-adjustable seats. The power adjusters have faulty bolts, which may cause the seats to move up or down freely; GM says owners should not use the height adjuster until dealers replace the bolts. The automaker says it's aware of one crash and three injuries but no fatalities that stem from the issue. Related: More…

    “You know, we should probably check out a Buick.” I had no idea my dad was capable of speaking such nonsense. He wasn’t even kidding. My parents were in the process of shopping for a new car, and my dad, a lifelong proponent of foreign cars and skeptic of American cars, uttered those fateful and surprising words. At 60 years old, my dad was just doing what many 60-year-olds do. Thankfully my mom is still 59 and hasn’t crossed over into the age of Buicks just yet. She prevented the purchase and influenced a choice that conveys a considerably younger persona. The make…

Those old Scouts and Broncos and Discoverys were true sport utility vehicles, with the power and capability to conquer any road, or lack thereof, put in front of them. Today we have “compact SUVs” and “crossover SUVs,” which, in every…

    21 Jul 2014 | 8:00 am
    There’s much to love about this adorable little car! Called the “Jolly,” and created in the late Fifties and early Sixties off the Fiat 500 and 600, this cute little convertible was originally modified by the Italian design house Ghia to be a luxury vehicle for wealthy Europeans and for export into the United States market. It’s widely said that the Fiat 500 of 1957 was Italy’s answer to the Volkswagen Beetle. This modified little Fiat beach buggy may have been marketed worldwide as the Jolly, but it was best known in Europe as “La Spiaggina” -- a word loosely translated as…

    So, you’re shopping for a used car: Whether you’re browsing prices online, or watching the advertisements in the newspaper, we know that vehicle cost is always an important part of your research. New or used, many shoppers suspect that car dealers may publish prices that are insanely low as a way to get shoppers to come in and take a look at what’s on the lot. They’re called “loss leaders” and by the time consumers get to the dealership, the car has already been sold, or it’s an unappealing model that nobody really wants to buy anyhow. And then the dealer tries to upsell the…

So I couldn’t hear the engine over the music, but it seemed to have more torque than I remembered in the last Jeep Grand Cherokee I drove.  I turned the radio off and could detect a different noise coming from under the hood.

    “Give it some more power.” Exactly! You have heard it many times over in just about every single expert or enthusiast review of the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ. TRD (Toyota Racing Development) came to the rescue to deliver some nice add-ons for the Toyota GT86, the Japanese version of what we know as the Scion FR-S, but failed to endow the well-capable chassis with any extra power. Basically, it is a half-way done attempt to sell a few more units, which isn’t going to fly with those who thirst for what is really missing. Fortunately, HKS stepped up to the plate to give us what we have…
  • 2015 Chevrolet SS Gets Manual Transmission and Magnetic Ride Control

    22 Jul 2014 | 7:45 am
    The Chevrolet SS has been somewhat of a virtual sleeper riding undercover as some think it is some type of modified Malibu. Even though the SS has somewhat of a slow identity signification among many, it is undoubtedly a performance sedan that deserves its merit from true automotive enthusiasts who appreciate its 415 horsepower 6.2-liter V8 engine with power sent to the rear wheels for a dash to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds via its standard 6-speed automatic transmission. For 2015, the Chevrolet SS’ appreciation is about to get a few bonus points from enthusiasts as it will get a no-cost option…

  • A fond farewell to STaSIS

    Nick Roshon
    22 Jul 2014 | 10:41 pm
    It’s with a heavy heart that I must share that STaSIS is no longer in business. Founded in 1999, STaSIS had a long history of producing and selling high performance parts for Audis, even when doing such a thing wasn’t very common. They’ve sponsored numerous race cars, showed the world how menacing an R8 can be with a supercharger, and really did a ton for the Audi community. I held off on writing this post with hopes they might restructure and rise from the dead, but after several months that seems less and less likely. I myself have happily owned many parts made by them…

    Renault Australia has increased its warranty coverage to five years/unlimited kilometres on all Renault Sport RS and GT models. Up until now, Renault‘s go-fast models – the Megane RS and Clio RS – had been offered with a three-year/unlimited kilometre warranty, but these models, along with the updated Megane GT 220 wagon and newly added GT220 hatchback, not to mention the Clio GT, have now been increased with an extra 24 months of coverage.

    23 Jul 2014 | 7:02 pm
    The 2014 Renault Megane has received a nose job, but there’s a lot more to the updated French car than meets the eye. That’s because Renault has switched from a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine in the majority of the Megane range to a downsized 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol mill. The updated Megane’s tiny powerplant produces 97kW of power at 5500rpm and 205Nm of torque at 2000rpm – down in terms of power compared to the old 2.0-litre (103kW), but up in terms of torque (195Nm). The engine was already available as part of the pre-facelift range in the base Expression model, but it…
  • 2014 Renault Megane GT 220: New hot-hatch added to small car range

    Matt Campbell

    The updated Renault Megane range has seen the addition of a new warm- to hot-hatch variant, the GT 220. Previously offered as a limited edition five-door GT 220 station wagon, Renault has now added a five-door hatchback version alongside the wagon model as part of the standard Megane model range. The GT 220 variants are both designed with performance in mind, with the models using the same 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine as is seen in the three-door RS265 hot-hatch. The engine has been detuned, however, dropping from 195kW to a Volkswagen Golf GTI-equalling 162kW of power…

    The Renault Megane RS265 now has a more affordable, more practical – but less powerful – sibling: the new Renault Megane GT 220. The GT 220 was previously offered as a wagon only, as part of a limited edition, low volume allocation in Australia from mid-2013. Renault has now made the GT 220 a regular feature of the Megane range, and as such, the badge now extends to the five-door hatchback model. The company’s local managing director, Justin Hocevar, said the wagon drew plenty of interest in its previous iteration, but that buyers were “crying out for a GT 220 hatchback”.
  • BMW Australia to become even more SUV-focused

    Mike Costello
    23 Jul 2014 | 5:13 pm
    BMW Australia says it is entirely possible that a day could soon come when it sells more SUVs from its growing X range — which will expand to at least six models including the new X7 seven-seater from 2017 — than lower-riding passenger cars.  Over the past four years the company has taken its SUV range from strength to strength, especially compared to arch nemesis Mercedes-Benz, which has been hobbled here by the lack of a right-hand-drive GLK-class — something that will soon change.  In 2010, 34 per cent of BMW’s total local sales were its X-line of SUV models, a figure that shot…

    Earlier this year, PetrolBlog spent a worrying amount of time sifting through the data on How Many Left? to identify the rarest French cars on the roads of the Britain. It made for heartbreaking reading for fans of French metal from the 1970s, 80s and 90s. Just where did they all go? Of course, that’s a rhetorical question, with most either turning to rust or scrapped when deemed beyond economical repair. The subsequent French Car Critical List simply added to the agony when it identified the rarest Citroën cars, with a distinct whiff of PetrolBloggyness. As promised, we now turn our…

    The all-new Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estate isn’t the most PetrolBloggy of cars. For a start, it’s too expensive, with prices starting from £28,055, but rising considerably once you’ve selected the right engine and a few must-have accessories. Indeed – based on our experience in Germany this week – you really need the C250 BlueTEC diesel in either Sport or AMG Line trim, by which time the list price has risen beyond £35,000. In truth, the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estate is a bit good, feeling every inch like a fun-size S-Class with a snail house on the back. Take…

  • Towing capacity war erupts between Ford and Ram

That means that it would surpass the 30,000-pound towing rating that Ram claims for its 3500 heavy-duty. But Ram would not let Ford grab the spotlight. The same day Ford unveiled its new Super Duty trucks to journalists, Ram issued a press release saying it is the first maker that boasts of an entire pickup lineup that has towing capacity ratings developed under an industry standard established by SAE. Ram also reiterated that the towing…

Still, Nissan is determined to roll out another offering in order to generate as much buzz. Company’s chief planning officer a.k.a.

Since 2009, that role was filled by the Cube, while later in 2011 the Murano CrossCabriolet was introduced.

So hoping for an M version of the i8 is pretty much setting yourself up for disappointment.

More so, rumors state that the BMW i9 will be launched in 2016, making it also a nice tribute to the company’s 100th anniversary. I have to admit, this all…

    Bugatti, Citroën, Peugeot and Renault are current major car automakers in France.

    The new Porsche Cayman S edges even closer to the venerable Porsche 911. The first Porsche Cayman model blew me away when I drove it during a media preview through twisting mountain roads in northern Italy in late 2005. Now the lighter, faster third-generation Cayman is here as a redesigned 2014 model with features including sleeker styling, a longer wheelbase, classier interior and power gains. The new mid-engine, rear-drive Cayman looks significantly different than the Boxster and the last-generation Cayman. Precise lines and sculpted edges complement the lowered, lengthened profile.

    Sometimes when we see a film featuring particularly great-looking or iconic cars, we feel compelled to get up and go for a drive. Of course, most of us never get the chance to own classic cars like the Ford Mustang or the Jaguar E Type, but there’s nothing stopping us looking at them on film and thereby being inspired to go and mimic our favourite actors and try to look as cool as they do. Cinema has played a great part in increasing (and securing) the popularity of certain cars, and in this blog post we’ll take a look at some of them. Some of the cars we’ll discuss were already…

  • 2014 Skoda Octavia vRS Hatch 2.0 TDI 184PS Manual review – Fast-Hatch Offers Performance & Economy

    Chris Davies
    21 Jul 2014 | 5:27 am
    Great economy, torque-a-plenty, punchy acceleration, sorted ride and handling, comfortable, well priced Lacks personality, more standard equipment would be welcome 2014 Skoda Octavia vRS? M, RS, AMG, STi. Seeing these inconspicuous badges on the front and rear of certain marques fire off little sparks of adrenaline through the veins of petrolheads, for they know that underneath that seemingly normal exterior is a car capable of making your heart thump in your chest at the mere prod of the accelerator. Skoda’s own discreet badging for the smoking hot versions of their cars comes in the…
  • 2014 Peugeot 308 5-Door Feline e-HDi 115 Review – Perception Changer

    Chris Davies
    9 Jul 2014 | 7:57 am
    Good exterior looks, visually pleasing, comfortable & contemporary cabin, 115 engine good all-rounder Small steering wheel partially blocks vision of instrument panel 2014 Peugeot 308? Compare the new 308 to its 2013 predecessor, and the difference is astounding. For myself, the old version was an ugly, nondescript-looking thing offering exactly zero in the way of desirability, and the interior lacked any sort of charisma or design flair. In short: it was entirely dull and lacklustre and exactly the sort of car you buy if you have no interest in cars at all. For 2014 though, Peugeot…
  • 2014 Mazda MX-5 Roadster Coupe 2.0i Sport Venture Review – Fun Motoring Since 1989

    An absolute joy to drive, brilliant handling, time-tested reliability, good price High wind and road noise at motorway speeds, very little storage space Mazda MX-5? The Mazda MX-5 (or Mazda Miata in the USA, and Mazda Eunos Roadster in Japan) has now been on the go since 1989, and is officially the best-selling two-seater sportscar in the world with an impressive 940,000 sold to date (May 2014). It’s easy to see why Mazda sell so many of their dinky sportscar; just ask any owner of any model and they’ll happily tell you that not only is it one of the best-handling cars around,…

    Chris Davies
    29 May 2014 | 4:05 am
    Classy inside and out, 2.2 litre 163PS engine is excellent, very competitive price Nothing to complain about Jaguar XF? Arriving in 2007 in concept form, the Jaguar XF instantly appealed to a new audience. The previous X-Type  and S-Type were just not ‘Jaguar’ enough for most, and from the exterior styling to the interior (many Ford parts being used), there was a definite lack of flair about them. With the arrival of the new range of Jaguar’s including the XF, Jag has returned to the days of great styling and classy interiors – thank goodness for that! However, what’s it like…

    The best thing about moving. The thing about things that you need is that you use them. You obviously don’t need them if you don’t use them. That seems like a logical correlation, doesn’t it? When you move, you should make a few piles of things. The “I need this! ” pile, the “I want this” pile, and finally, the “Do I really need or want this? ” pile. Take everything from that last pile and give it away. Have got a yard sale with the stuff of value, and everything else goes right to the Goodwill store.

  • Tesla Poised to Release a More Affordable Car in 2017

    10 May 2014 | 9:14 am
    Interest in electric cars among U.S. consumers continues to rise. News regarding the latest models from Tesla, Cadillac, Fiat, and BMW dominate the media. Consumers seem adamant about reducing or completely eliminating their fuel usage. In 2011, the average American household spent roughly $4,000 on gasoline alone, which is just a fraction of the money you can expect to spend on an automobile. A new entry-level Tesla car has been announced. The Model E will debut in 2017, and it reportedly will cost half the price of current Tesla luxury lines. Take a look at how this car could change the…

  • The Top Commuter Cars for 2014

    10 May 2014 | 6:10 am
    Commutes are getting longer — well over an hour in many U.S. metro areas — and more people are getting on board with ride sharing and carpooling. That’s great for the economy and your pocket book, but not so great if you don’t have the right commuter car. Consider that in 1960, there were almost 74 million cars on the road, but today there are more than 253 million. Even though workplaces are turning virtual, that doesn’t mean people are driving any less. For Americans who are en route to the office, having the right vehicle to get you there is just as important as other…
  • Meet the 2014 Lexus ES 350

    10 May 2014 | 5:20 am
    It’s been a few years since a Lexus was voted most popular, but the 2014 Lexus ES 350 model might just have what it takes. With a starting MSRP of just above $35,000 and an EPA rating of MPG around 21/31, it’ll appeal to those with luxury taste who are also watching their budget. The ES 350 got a massive makeover in 2013, and there’s nothing shockingly new for this year’s model. But that tempting bamboo interior trim, those heated seats, Siri Eyes Free technology, and LED fog lamps are starting to turn some heads. A gentleman’s or lady’s lounge on wheels, this model is designed to…

    27 Jun 2014 | 5:09 am
    Last month we reported that fuel costs remained a major concern for British motorists.  According to a new study by the Post Office, concerns could well be justified. The study has shown that British drivers are currently paying up to 43p more per litre than other drivers in the continent.  Even drivers in neighbouring France are paying 29p per litre less than UK motorists. The information – which has come from the Post Office Travel Money annual report into motoring – said that even after exchange rate discrepancies were taken into account, diesel in the continent was…
  • UK Car sales grow for record 27th consecutive month

    23 Jun 2014 | 7:42 am
    UK car sales have risen for the 27th month in a row, breaking a record that dated back to the 1980s.  The availability of easy credit combined with heavy discounting and rising consumer confidence (not to mention fairly solid economic growth) has swelled the demand for new cars within the UK.  Sales in the country are now out-pacing pre-recession levels. British car buyers have been considered the darlings of the European car industry within the last couple of years, with the rest of the continent still struggling with lower sales. New car sales in the UK rose 7.7 per cent in May,…

Thirty-three of the 39 police authorities in England and Wales responded to the request by…

    9 May 2014 | 3:13 am
    A new regulatory change could lead to businesses having to increase their vehicle tax budgets by up to 30 per cent, if the latest reports are to be believed.  Today, we’re going to take a look at the changes that are being slowly put in place, and the impact that they could potentially have. What are the changes? The plan is to introduce a new vehicle emissions test dubbed the Worldwide Harmonised Light-duty Test Procedures (WLTP).  It’s believed that the current New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) has been failing to provide a realistic picture of fuel consumption, and…
  • Fuel Prices Still the Major Motoring Concern

    30 Apr 2014 | 6:34 am
    With the freeze on fuel duty in this year’s budget, motorists had every right to be relatively pleased.  However, new research from the British Car Auctions (BCA) has shown that the price of fuel is still the biggest concern for UK drivers. 70% of those surveyed by the BCA stated that fuel costs remained the issue that worried them the most. Unfortunately, this is by no means the first time it’s caused concern: fuel prices have been topping the motoring worry table since at least 2010. Commenting on the new figures, Tim Naylor – the editor of the BCA Used Car Market…

    Many small business owners are not maximising the revenue they could earn because they are not thinking ahead. Often a small business owner will concentrate on running their business and that’s it. Yet if they started to copy the marketing tactics of supermarkets and online businesses, they could see a huge increase in their revenue. Let me show you what I mean. Imagine you are doing some freelance work at a company and while you’re there you hear staff complaining about all sorts of things. They’re complaining about how slow their website is, the accountant doesn’t get…
  • Is It Worth Using A Mobile Mechanic?

    Ron Rodney
    6 Sep 2013 | 1:31 am
    There are some excellent mobile mechanics out there. But finding them is becoming extremely difficult. Do an Internet search for a mobile mechanic and it’s like doing a search for a plumber. You get so many results but there’s no way of knowing who are the good ones and what reviews are real or false. For instance, at the time of writing this, September 2013, we haven’t found a mobile mechanic who we’d be happy to recommend. The main reason for this is, we do a lot of research into the garages we recommend. Doing that same research to find mobile mechanics has left us far…

    The first thing that comes to a common man’s mind on hearing the name Cuba is cigar. Apart from that a movie freak must have also heard of the name “Guantanamo Bay”. Well this article is certainly not about the world’s best cigar or top class detention centre but about the auto industry in that country. You should be surprised to learn that most wealthy people in Cuba can’t afford a Peugeot. Yes, you read it right; it’s not a Rolls-Royce or a Ferrari but a Peugeot is a sign of wealthy person. The story goes like this. Cuba is the house of vintage American cars; and these…

    Toyota has had an interesting innings in India so far. While the Japanese automaker has tasted success with the now-discontinued Qualis, Innova, Corolla and Fortuner, the Etios Liva, Etios sedan and Camry haven’t found as many homes as their competitors. While the Camry caters to the premium as well as taxi segment, it does manage to generate some sales every month. The Etios and Etios Liva were made with just one aim in mind – cost effectiveness. Sure, these vehicles do come with good space, decent engines and Toyota’s famed reliability, the cost-cutting that the automaker…
  • Maruti Ertiga vs Honda Mobilio vs Toyota Innova – Price Comparison

    Sameer Contractor
    23 Jul 2014 | 6:13 am
    After enjoying the longest reign, the Toyota Innova was contested by the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga in the MPV segment only to find both the products co-existing in a similar space without eating into the other’s market share. While the Ertiga managed to woe buyers looking for space and utility on a budget, the Innova was the king of the segment offering space, luxury and reliability in a trusted package over the years. However, striking the right balance between the two, Honda has made its foray into the MPV space with the Mobilio that has been positioned bang in between the middle of both the…

    Even with almost every two-wheeler manufacturer trying to grab a major chunk of market share in the scooter space, Bajaj Auto has chosen to trail on a different path with its range of vehicles. Over the past years, the scooter market has grown by ten-folds with the Honda Activa leading the bandwagon. The Activa even managed to topple the sales of the Hero Splendor, which only goes to show the sheer demand for automatic scooters in the Indian market. Most famous for the iconic Chetak scooter, Bajaj has introduced scooters like the Krystal and the company could not really get it going in the…

    Growing up in the south eastern outskirts of Perth during the 1970s coincided, for me, with a huge interest in modelling. No, I don’t mean the Karen Pini kind of modelling (Google her but be nice), I mean plastic hobby kit modelling. Ships, space craft, planes, tanks, people, cars, you name it and it was available. My own room was filled with samples from the military, space and cars. Nowadays the modelling scene, although not underground, is nowhere near as popular as it used to be. You could go to a K-Mart and buy kits, paint, brushes; hobby shops were, metaphorically, on every corner…

    20 Jul 2014 | 6:52 pm
    People movers once ruled the roost and it was thanks to Toyota with the Tarago and LiteAce. Of more recent times, SUVs have grabbed the crown, to the detriment of driving standards. Proton offers up a slightly different alternative to A Wheel Thing with its compact sized people mover, the Exora. Again it’s split into two trim levels, the GX and GXR. It’s powered by the same engine (103kW/205Nm) as found in the Suprima S and Preve’ (amortising costs) and is lobbed into a car weighing just under 1500 kg. The engine is again bolted to a CVT with six programmed manual shift…

    Going through the car wash used to be something of a treat when I was a child, especially as we lived in a small town and a mechanical car wash at a garage was something that only happened when we went into a larger town. It was just a little bit scary as well as fun – were those big mechanical arms going to go too far and crush the car?  Would those rubbery things going flubbida-flubbida-flubbida against the window going to break the glass?  Would the machine let us out again at the end?  But out we would come in the family Mitsubishi station wagon, all clean and gleaming again,…

A Wheel Thing has been granted access to three Proton cars, kicking off with the aforementioned Suprima S, followed by the people mover styled Exora and wrapping up with the Preve’ sedan. The Suprima S is a two model range, the GX and GXR with a single engine and transmission option.

The new Series 2 Active Tourer is the first large car with front wheel drive, a model that the presence of the brands portfolio puts an end to a long tradition of the German from Munich who wanted until today to make cars with only rear wheel drive.

    The American aesthetic, whether you like it or not, represents many millions of people and that is truly respectable. This has to do with the primarily feeling of spaciousness that we always enjoy. From the inside out, therefore, the Fiat Freemont wins too many points, and is a representative sample of the “American School” in that it has to do with the property. To return, however, to the aesthetics of the body, the interventions of the Design Department of the Fiat Freemont’s chunky bodywork who wanted to difference the model from the Dodge Journey, which is based on, are…

It must be said, that the previous dynamic Fiesta, although it was potential, and was also called ST was a 2 liter and atmospheric vehicle. In other words, it was a fiscal suicide. Anyway, until the generation of Ecoboost engines, Ford is left a little behind. And if the grand cylinder came with forums to climb in the first step of the podium among peers, this one here, the 1.6 liter engine that supplies the new Fiesta ST, gives a real winning…

    All brands of gasoline are not the same. The gas at one station is different from the gas at the station down the street. It is similar to how different brands of apple juice don’t taste the same and have varying amounts of vitamins depending on the types of apples used in the juice. Brands of gas have different additives that increase performance, clean while they burn, and reduce emissions. In 1995, the EPA put a minimum limit on additives for gas sold in the United States. Since then, each brand of gas must contain a certain amount of additives that reduce emissions and reduce the…

But how does one make this epic supercar even more exclusive? Add a manual gearbox to it, of course. According to Jalopnik, Pagani has no problem fitting your Huayra with a non-conventional manual gearbox. That is, if you have plenty of cash to back it up. And I mean plenty. Along with the conversion itself, the customer would have to pay for research and development costs, testing, and all that goes into fitting a…

The news comes from an interview between Piston Heads and Marek Reichman, Aston’s director of design. “That was a different time,” Reichman notes about the Lagonda SUV. “It was Ulrich’s time. And…

So, they would ask their applicants who else in their home can drive and include the details of those people in their premium calculations.

Scientists have myriad winding answers involving chemical jargon as to the differences between the two fuels. This makes it hard for the average non-scientist to understand their differences. However, in simple terms, both fuels are products of the crude oil but have distinct molecular structures. This is as a result of each of them being extracted at different temperatures during the…

    As an upgrade for the Race anti-lock braking system already fitted as standard to their bikes, BMW HP4 owners will soon be able to have ABS Pro installed. The main benefit of the device is that it allows ABS assistance while cornering. Essentially, existing sensors used by the HP4’s Dynamic Traction Control and Dynamic Damping Control measure the current banking angle. That piece of data then determines how quickly braking pressure can build up, which should prevent the motorcycle suddenly changing direction or trying to get upright mid-bend. However, BMW is keen to stress that the laws of…

  • Into the spotlight – The Brough Superior Motorcar

    2 Jun 2014 | 10:38 pm
    It is an unfortunate aspect of history that certain siblings are relegated to the shadows of their much brighter offspring, no matter how brightly they shine. The Brough Superior automobile is one such example of this, having no chance against the solar beacon that was the Brough Superior motorcycles it shared it’s nameplate with. Nonetheless, with relativity put aside, it’s time to take a closer look at the lesser known member of the Brough Superior vehicle range. Over a short period between 1935 and 1938, the Brough Superior Motorworks produced approximately 85 motorcars. Rolling…
  • You’re in control – if you remember which is which

    10 May 2014 | 11:58 pm
    Today we have it so easy as motorcycle riders. Before the advent of the throttle roll hand control, before the ‘point & squirt’ bikes we have today, riding a bike was an incredibly involved task. Just controlling the engine and keeping it running was a job in itself, with oil, fuel and air measures being set as the rider desired. These are the true motorcyclists’ cycles, where total control of the machine was in the hands of the rider. However, by noting that these bikes feature lacklustre brakes and woeful power output, it allow us to appreciate how far we have come,…
  • Passion & Practicality – High miler Laverda 3C

    In Australia Laverda motorcycles are rare, customised Laverdas are even rarer, and customised Laverdas that are ridden on a regular basis are almost unheard of. Today’s bike falls into the last of these categories, an Italian beauty that’s not afraid to put miles under it’s tyres, and it comes in the form of Marty’s 1974 Laverda 3C. After twenty years ownership (including three as an everyday rider), and showing no fear in riding it on a regular basis, this bike shows that you can have something special as your daily transport. It helps to have bitchin’ mechanical skills as well.

What's slowly happening though is that nice, clean examples of short beds are becoming few and far between and when they do pop up you're going to pay a premium. Recently some guys have started shortening the bed and chassis of long bed trucks to get the same look but without the price gouge of a short bed truck. Our friend Sean Ramáge of Empire Fabrication recently took on the big job of taking an original-paint set of long bedsides and…

    The 2015 design year represents the 7th for the 2015 Nissan GT-R NISMO, as well as nearly each turn of the date has arrived with step-by-step revisions from Nissan, extending the package of a vehicle we initially known as “big, heavy, and incredible.” The profile grows this season to add a NISMO-Nissan Motorsports-model, as well as all 3 of our preliminary adjectives still ring accurate. NISMOizing the GT-R helps it to be a little bigger, extending the car’s size by 0.5 inch with newer body-work. This includes an internal splitter as well as a elevated rear wing that, based on Nissan,…

Attempting to bushwhack it’s in the past from a lost period of uncompetitive automobiles and misguided technique, Lincoln is in the middle of what its marketing and advertising crew names a “product- and service-led change.” However the 2015 Lincoln Navigator is really an extension of the identical program instead of the about-face the manufacturer anxiously needs. It sticks to the tired “follow Ford” strategy and is also…

    Tesla Model E – It is still early to have any specific information on the design of the 2017 Tesla Model E. I guess this model would keep up the distinctive style from other Tesla cars. Expected is the familiar front end with large oval grille, similar to the 2012 Model S. It could be smaller, although. I also hope to see interior design similar to Model S, with large touch screen positioned next to the steering wheel. Designers must use premium and high quality materials for the seats and other interior elements. But there is also the possibility that this model will have less…

Of course it is possible to sling mud at one’s opponents, but why not just make fun of yourself?  The new Big City Car is real, at least as a prototype, but it is unreasonably large.   And it is merely a 1.5 scale model of the current Smart City car.

It’s like I went to bed one night as me — a small, grouchy gray-haired guy running out of open road — and woke up as Dirk Nowitzki, the smiling, golden giant king of Dallas.

  • Mazda Recalling Cars Due to Danger From Insect

    Dan White
    4 Apr 2014 | 3:56 pm
    AP – Mazda is recalling 42,000 Mazda6 cars in the U.S. because spiders can weave a web in a vent hose and cause the fuel tank to crack. The recall involves cars from the 2010 through 2012 model years equipped with 2.5-liter engines. The yellow sac spider, which is attracted to hydrocarbons, builds webs that cause pressure to build in the fuel tank. That increases the risk of fuel leaks and fire. Mazda recalled cars in 2011 for the same problem. It put covers on the vent line, but has found spiders can get past them. Mazda will update the cars’ software for free beginning this…
