    Image Source As providers of big ticket items, the health of the auto industry is largely a predictor of the health of the economy as a whole. In the US, 2014 was the second year in a row in which it finally looked like we were out of the recession. Confidence seemed to be high, with U.S. auto inventory stockpiles at their highest levels since 2006, and the industry seems to have successfully adapted past the unfortunate bailouts of a decade before. Cars made today are the most durable they’ve been in over a decade, with an average age of light vehicles improving to 11.4 years in the…

  • Report: Jaguar-Land Rover don’t believe in autonomous cars

    admin
    2 Jul 2015 | 5:28 pm
    One of the future prospects for the automobile industry is the recent push for autonomous driving technology, which is obviously causing quite the buzz. But in the point of view and perspective of Jaguar-Land Rover’s R&D chief, Wolfgang Epple, J-LR doesn’t approve of autonomous driving technology because they don’t consider the occupants inside the car, “cargo.” “We don’t want to build a robot that delivers the cargo from A to B,” said Epple, who’s most likely referring to the connection between man and machine, and all that is holy in…
  • Report: Jaguar’s new F-Type SVR could sport all-wheel drive only

    admin
    1 Jul 2015 | 1:30 pm
    A new report is in regarding Jaguar’s new high-performance variant of the F-Type–the highly anticipated SVR. According to the new report, CAR Magazine learned that Jaguar could be giving the F-Type SVR all-wheel drive after some of their staff caught sighting of some recent test mules. In addition to the all-wheel drive system, you can expect more aggressive bodywork for better aerodynamics and cooling, heavy-duty carbon-ceramic brakes, and visuals that take after the F-Type Project 7. Power is to be supplied by a tuned 5.0L supercharged Jaguar AV-V8 with around 600hp on tap. A…
  • Lexus reveals the new IS 200t for Europe, should come to our shores next year

    30 Jun 2015 | 11:43 am
    Lexus and Toyota are in the midst of rolling out a new 2.0L turbocharged engine for some of its base models. This engine is actually available on the new NX compact crossover and just recently, it was made available for the IS in Europe. That means in a matter of time, the current base IS in the US will cease to use its naturally-aspirated 2.5L V6 in the IS 250. The new motor produces around 240hp and 258 lb-ft of torque and channels it to the rear wheels via an eight-speed Sport Direct Shift transmission, allowing for a 0-62 time of just seven seconds. Not much else about the IS is…
  • Report: Next-gen Scion FR-S could use Mazda Miata MX-5 platform

    29 Jun 2015 | 5:00 am
    Some news is floating in about the next generation Scion FR-S, which Australia’s Motoring says could use the new Mazda Miata MX-5’s platform as a starting point. This seems possible since the Scion/Subaru/Toyota trio don’t seem to be selling as well as the brands anticipated. They want to keep the car around, but could use the Miata platform to cut corners instead of making their own. And that’s ok since the Miata platform is a great place to start. Not much is known, but the lightweight Miata is basically synonymous to the Scion/Subaru/Toyota trio in that both are…

All the cars designated to populate the line are expected to be revealed over the course of the next two years, with one confirmed already to be introduced in 2016. The next one after that will be in 2017. McLaren obviously kept their cards close, but speculation points to versions of the 570S Spider and the 570S Gran Turismo.

  • After Clearing Legal Hurdles, Taxi of Tomorrow Now Taxi of Today

    The New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission finally cleared its last hurdle in making the Nissan NV200 the new official taxi for NYC, Car and Driver reports. The commission installed the NV200 as the new official taxi back in 2011, but legal challenges have delayed that process until now. The city licenses more than 13,000 cabs. The challenge stemmed from a group of taxi owners taking exception to the commission dwindling the number of acceptable cab models from 47 down to just one. However, the C&D report points out, owners can choose from a slightly larger list of acceptable…
  • Nurburgring May Dump Speed Limits for Manufacturers

    3 Jul 2015 | 11:00 am
    Per Road and Track, the operators of the famed Nurburgring in Germany may be preparing to dump its speed limits for manufacturers and may mean a return for manufacturer records. After a Nissan GT-R GT3 crashed and killed a spectator, the famous road installed speed limits during specific sections for safety and enforced those limits during testing for manufacturers — effectively ending record run chest-thumping. Although the rumor is just a rumor right now, there are undoubtedly a few manufacturers who should be licking their chops today at the chance to unseat Porsche for the…
  • FCA Awaits NHTSA’s Wrath After Recall Hearings

    Aaron Cole
    3 Jul 2015 | 10:00 am
    Yesterday, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration took the unusual step of hauling a single automaker to the Capitol to scold Fiat Chrysler for delays in recalls and repairs. The hearing is ahead of anticipated fines NHTSA may deal later this month, possibly as high as $700 million. Attention was focused on Jeep Liberties and Grand Cherokees with rear-mounted gas tanks that could leak fuel if struck in a high-speed rear collision and potentially catch fire. Also of importance is the rate at which Jeep notified its owners of the recall.

  • Honda Making English Its Official Language by 2020

    In its 104-page annual sustainability report, Honda announced it would make English its official language by 2020, requiring all interregional communication be conducted in English. Similarly, English-language proficiency would be a requirement for promotion to management. The new mandate appears on Page 70 of the report. Despite burying the lede, it’s a seismic change for the Japanese company. According to Automotive News, five years ago then-boss Takanobu Ito said — possibly in Japanese — that making English the official language of Honda was “stupid.” Five years…

    Words and Photos: Raphael Belly En Francais Many years ago when I had just begun in the automotive world I knew very little about classic cars and classic Ferraris. When I was in an automotive journalist internship in Belgium, I used to drive press test cars at car dealers. One day I was picking up a Volkswagen Golf in Brussels and when I left the dealer’s garage I saw a yellow car at the gas station. I recognized it as a Ferrari so I stopped to take pictures but I couldn’t tell which Ferrari model it was. But I fell in love with it. After searching, I saw it was a Ferrari 250 GT SWB,…

It has been a strong seller since it was last completely redesigned for 2010 and offers either front- or all-wheel drive with the standard 3.6-liter V-6; it’s also available as a front-drive-only, fuel-miser edition with a mild-hybrid setup built around a 2.4-liter Ecotec four-cylinder.

Last year's Silverstone poleman Jimmy Eriksson then vaulted to the top, but it would be an ever-familiar sight out front at halfway point as Ghiotto responded by becoming the first driver to dip into ...

  • Diesel Fuel Prices Drop for Fourth Week in a Row

    Paul Riegler
    26 Jun 2015 | 10:50 am
    The price of diesel fuel fell for the fourth week in a row in the United States as part of an overall decline in fuel prices. The price of a gallon of diesel fuel at the pump was down $0.01.1 to $2.859, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. That price is $1.060 cheaper than in the same period in 2014. With the exception of New England, which saw an increase of $0.012, and the West Coast (without California), up $0.006, diesel prices fell in every region of the country. Meanwhile, the average price per gallon for gasoline was down by $0.023 to $2.812, according to the EIA, a…

It also introduces what BMW says is a world first, Gesture Control, a feature that allows specific hand movements made near…

    George Washington Bridge It feels like only yesterday that we took delivery of the Moonstone Metallic BMW 535d in Munich at the BMW Welt. The 5er was something we had waited for with great anticipation, after having spent over two years with BMW’s first clean diesel sedan, the 335d, which was followed by the X5 xdrive35d and the BMW ActiveHybrid 5. The 535d was first announced for the U.S. market in early 2013, shortly after BMW debuted the 328d sedan and wagon.  It wasn’t alone in its market segment: Audi had just started selling the A6 TDI, and Mercedes-Benz had been offering an…

    Fuel prices are on the rise again, with prices around the country for a gallon of diesel and gasoline more than they were a week ago, although they remain significantly lower than they at this time last year. The average price for a gallon of diesel this week was $2.811, $0.031 more than it was a week ago, but $1.164 less than it was a year ago, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Meanwhile, the average price for a gallon of gasoline was $2.57, $0.085 more than it was a week ago, though it remains $1.143 lower than it was a year ago. The West Coast led the way in diesel…

  • Three Ways Your Dealership Can Attract Millennial Car Shoppers

    Digital Dealer
    2 Jul 2015 | 1:56 pm
    Young people aren’t driving differently. They’re shopping differently. And that’s a good thing. The automotive industry is increasingly focused on the car-buying habits of the “Millennial” generation: car buyers born after 1980. Dealers have often been led to think that this set isn’t as interested in vehicles as prior generations. They have more of an emotional connection with consumer electronics than with cars – so the theory goes – and they favor car sharing over car owning. And since they increasingly live in cities, they prefer riding a bike or using public…

    Social Media use in the car dealership is different today than it was just a few years ago. It’s interesting how in a short period of time being active on social media has evolved from something that was considered ‘free’ and optional to something that’s necessary and requires an investment of time, resources and yes – a budget. I recently had the pleasure of speaking at the 2015 Automotive Social Media Summit hosted by Thought Leadership Summits representing the LaFontaine Automotive Group.

  • Review: 2015.5 Volvo V60 T5 AWD Cross Country

    Kevin Miller
    15 Jun 2015 | 1:00 am
    Way back in 1998, Volvo introduced a variant of its V70 wagon that has since become nearly as iconic as the Volvo Wagon itself: the Cross Country. The intervening years saw nomenclature changes eschew the “Cross Country” name, simply calling the vehicle V70 XC, and then XC70. Seventeen years later, Volvo has revived the Cross Country nameplate in the US, with the 2015.5 V60 T5 AWD Cross Country. Based on the V60 wagon, Volvo has gone to great lengths to give the new Cross Country some SUV styling cues to differentiate it from its V60 roots- blacked out window trim and tinted…

    Back in 2009, I had the chance to review the all-new fifth-generation Subaru Legacy, and the vehicle I reviewed was the 2010 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Premium. Six years later, I found myself behind the wheel of the sixth-generation 2015 Legacy 2.5i Premium, which is all new for 2015 model year. As with the previous generation Legacy, all new Legacy models have standard all-wheel drive; the only transmission choice now available is a Continuously Variable automatic (CVT). With the base 4-cylinder motor, power is up 5 HP to 175 HP, and fuel economy has improved drastically to 26/36/30 MPG…

  • 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost Delivers the MPGs

    mpg-o-editor
    14 Jun 2015 | 7:05 am
    There are a lot of folks that think a four-cylinder engine is just about the worst thing you could drop between the fenders of a pony car. I’m not one of them (anymore). While I was skeptical initially, after spending a week in the saddle of an EcoBoost Mustang, I’ve come around to the idea. A traditional muscle car must always have a V8 under the hood. But a pony car can be wicked fun (and fast), without traditional muscle. I put a Guard Green EcoBoost Mustang Premium to a week-long test. It was fitted with the six-speed automatic, and 201A – Equipment Group (which includes…

    Every time a Ford Mustang rolls into my driveway it feels like an old friend has come to visit. While I’ve never owned a Mustang, I’m reminded by all of the good times I’ve spent riding in pony cars and the great folks I’ve come to know along the way. So when the chance to test the 2015 Mustang GT appeared, there was no hesitation. After putting over ten thousand miles on Slambo (my 1999 Honda Civic HX fuel economy project car), I was more than ready to drive something with a healthy dose of horsepower under the hood.

  • Testing Ethanol Free Gasoline

    mpg-o-editor
    4 Apr 2015 | 4:38 pm
    I’ve been waiting to test Ethanol Free Gasoline (E0) for eons, but I could never find a local service station that carries it. Blame it on the lawmakers. As it turns out, New Jersey state law stipulates that all of the gas sold here must contain ten percent ethanol. Thankfully, ethanol-free gas is sold on the other side of the Delaware River, fifty odd miles from home. I took Slambo for a ride today, to fill up with E0 for the first time. I intend to test it over a number of tanks. Proponents of ethanol-free gas claim a significant jump in fuel economy. Just how much is the big…

It immediately strikes fear in the heart, a fear of the unknown. A sense of panic sets in. Your significant other is rattled, “what’s wrong with the car now,” they ask with trepidation. You feel an impulsive need to drive immediately to a dealership to find out what’s wrong. The seed has been planted: it’s a money tree and you’re about to fertilize it with your bank account.

Due to profanity, I can’t use that pic. Besides, it’s not as if that was the only time the Internet, let alone 9gag, ribbed the Multipla’s looks. “It’s a Black Hole of Ugliness!

    Last weekend photographer/videographer/director/Porsche enthusiast extraordinaire, Mr. Jeff Zwart, took on the mountain at Pikes Peak, and won his class by a pretty good margin. Chattering, whistling, boosting, and clunking his way up the course in his Luminox-sponsored turbocharged 997-generation GT3 Cup, Zwart managed a phenomenal 9:46.243 time, some 12 seconds faster than his 2014 run, to take the Time Attack 1 category victory. Jeff has been coming to Pikes Peak for decades now, and he's done a lot of miles at the hill in Porsche machinery. This BBi-prepared turbocharged insanity machine…

This is a different series, and a different race, but 6-hours at Watkins Glen in New York is still quite exciting and quite important to Porsche's racing program. No surprise, then, that they wouldn't be interested in settling for anything but the absolute best results. On this storied race track in this historic race, Porsche took a well deserved and celebrated 1-2 GTLM-class victory with their strong and fast 911 RSR race car.

Time Attack 1 Class Jeff Zwart finally got his 8th win on the mountain in his BBi prepared GT3/GT2 Cup and Zwart set his fastest career time to the top with a 9:46.243.

However, one of many cars that caught my attention that weekend was so subtle others may have passed right by it. This 1964 Le Mans I view as a “never-was” car—a “what if” for Pontiac fans.

Perhaps because it is a Cadillac road sled with a bounding African antelope badge on the sail panel — and a Bowtie badge in the grille — instead of a wreath and crest. Look…

    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life The original Porsche 911 Targa, introduced in 1967, wasn’t the car Porsche necessarily wanted to build, but the one it thought it would have to build. You see, around that time the U.S. government was making noises about outlawing full-fledged convertibles (or at least ones without roll bars), and Porsche’s response was to equip its new open 911 with a structural “basket handle” and a choice of a wraparound glass or folding fabric-and-clear-plastic back window. Not everybody was or is a fan, but we happen to think it’s a cool design. So we’re…

    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life Today, motorcycles with single-sided rear swingarms aren’t terribly unusual. However, in the early 1980s, they were still quite exotic, which is why the so-called “Monolever” versions of the BMW R80 RT and R100 RT grabbed a sizable chunk of attention when they debuted in 1984. Here were bikes that combined the BMW Motorrad hallmarks of flat-twin power and shaft-drive with “the-future-is-now” one-legged rear suspension design. But that wasn’t enough for one particular London-based R80 RT owner, who enlisted the services of Ton Up Garage to make…

Alfa Romeo clarified things today when in their release they explain the engine was, “…tuned by engineers from a Ferrari background.” I’m not sure this helped to clear the confusion but no matter.

    Jul.4 (GMM/Inautonews.com) Carlos Sainz says he is not getting his hopes up about a potential move to Red Bull’s senior team for 2016. With Red Bull Racing’s Daniel Ricciardo linked with a move to Ferrari, there could be an opportunity for a Toro Rosso driver to make the step up. But 20-year-old Sainz, who like his teenage teammate Max Verstappen has been impressive on debut in 2015, said it is “not the time to think about that”. “Something like that is far away,” he is quoted by the Spanish news agency EFE, “so if it really is an option, it is not…

A source told the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf that the 17-year-old Dutchman is considered “a serious option” by the fabled Maranello team. Toro Rosso rookie Verstappen, however, is firmly under contract to team owner Red Bull, meaning Ferrari would need to buy out the deal.

    At first glance, the 2016 Audi A4 may look very much like its predecessor. But make no mistake, it’s all-new and it’s spectacular. The exterior of the fifth generation A4 has a familiar look and that’s by design, continuing with Audi’s traditional charm and style, albeit with some freshened curves and creases. While the exterior is more evolution than revolution, the most notable changes come beneath the sheetmetal. Audi lengthened and widened the the A4 to make way for a roomier cabin. However, its lightweight construction and updated powertrains yield better fuel economy and…

    27 Jun 2015 | 9:21 am
    Mercedes-Benz recently previewed its all-new GLC, the highly anticipated replacement for the outgoing GLK-Class. As part of Mercedes-Benz’s new vehicle nomenclature, the GLK not only gets a new name, but a complete redesign to make it match its latest design language — the automaker’s most notable in recent years. Joining the larger GLA and sportier GLE, the new Mercedes GLC is aimed at tackling the likes of the BMW X3, Audi Q5, and Lexus RX, in the ever-evolving midsize crossover category.

    Lotus hasn’t been selling too many cars in the U.S. in recent years. So perhaps it wasn’t really noticed that for the 2015 model year, the British sports car maker didn’t sell its stunning Evora S here. Thanks to new, more stringent airbag and safety regulations, Lotus had the Evora sit the year out, but it’s now on it’s way back with a number of enhancements. Once again on sale in the U.S. market, the new 2016 Evora 400 will come with a retuned version of a Toyota-sourced supercharged 3.5-liter V6 engine with 400-horsepower and 301 pound-feet of torque.

    With Independence Day this weekend, we thought it would be an ideal time to take a look at some of the most “American” cars on sale today. Sure, it would be easy to throw together a list of muscle cars and pickup trucks, but, like it or not, the United States isn’t the birthplace of the V8 engine or 4-wheel-drive (that would be France and the Netherlands, respectively), and anyway, that would have been too easy. Instead, when trying to define American culture, we’ve been drawn to the wide breadth of automobiles that have helped define our car culture. After being born from a…

    I’m going to describe a problem with my car, and I want you to take some guesses on what year and make of car I own. I have the oil changed on my car about every 5,000 miles. I’m actually quite good at keeping to the schedule and making sure the maintenance is done on a timely basis. I use full synthetic oil in the car, and most of my family’s driving is on the highway. We live 30 minutes away from civilization, so the car rarely, if ever, does trips where it doesn’t reach operating temperature. The problem is that the car burns at least a quart of oil between oil…

    It’s a great time to be in the market for a pickup. Manufacturers have gone to great lengths to improve their trucks’ ride, interiors, and exteriors. With so many pickup trucks out there, how do you decide which truck is right for you? The first factor to consider is new versus used. The needle is pointing to buying new if your budget can justify it. As CarGurus.com Used Car Price Trends shows, used pickup prices are up 7.79 percent year over year. (Only used convertibles and vans show larger increases.) New pickup prices haven’t demonstrated a similar increase. PickupTrucks.com…

You managed to outsell the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger while giving the automotive press and middle-aged gearheads aneurysms with your cartoon-ish retro looks. The Challenger had never been a real contender sales-wise, even though the vicious Hellcat could take the other two cars and burn their rubber straight to, well, hell. How do the numbers stack up, and does the Camaro stand a chance of reclaiming the throne? Through May of this year, Ford has sold over 56,000 copies of the Mustang, while…

    The EcoBoost V6 is perfect for the 2017 Ford GT. It doesn’t need a V8. The Ferrari-humiliating GT40 had a V8. First a 255 c.i., then a 298 c.i., then a colossal iron behemoth 427 c.i. V8 with more torque than the planet Saturn. You know why? Because those were the best engines Ford had back then. They were powerful, reliable, and made a wonderful noise. But today, Ford’s best engine is arguably the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6. It’s a technical tour de force. It makes 380 hp and 460 lbft in the Lincoln Navigator, for chrissake. It’s an engineering marvel.

  • Rezvani Beast: The Next Supercar?

    Aditya Rajkumar
    16 Jun 2015 | 10:24 am
    Rezvani motors have unveiled the finished production model of their Beast supercar. The Beast is modeled from the lightweight, track-focused Ariel Atom, but with an actual windshield, more aggressive angles and some rather useful fenders. Under the hood lies an upgraded version of the Atom’s 2.4-liter four-cylinder, including both a supercharger and turbocharger, pushing out 500 horsepower, sprinting 0-60 mph in a mere 2.7 seconds. That’s roughly on par with an $845,000 Porsche 918- only at 1/7th of the price. The performance is accessible through a six-speed manual gearbox. The…

  • A Restaurant Refused To Serve A Homeless Man, But Minutes Later This Guy Returned To Show Them Up!

    admin
    21 Jun 2015 | 1:41 pm
    If you actually go out and talk to homeless people, you’ll find that they’re not that different from you and I. They may tell you how hard it is to find a job when you’re middle aged and homeless, or how the police often harass them. Most of all, they’ll tell you how different they feel. They’ll tell you that they’re treated differently. This is a great example. This guy decided to dress as a homeless person and try to dine at a restaurant. The results may not surprise you, but there is a bit of a twist.

    Storing petrol or diesel isn’t like storing any other kind of liquid, or indeed like storing fuel such as wood or coal. You need to make sure that it’s being kept safe and secure, and much of this comes down to the equipment that you use to do so. Let’s take a look at the things you need to think about if you’re going to go about this in the right way.

  • Little kid parks car like a budding Ken Block

    admin
    5 Nov 2014 | 4:04 pm
    At this point in the calender cycle, we’re probably all familiar with Ken Block’s Gymkhana videos (if you’re not, don’t feel left out – watch here). Naturally, as acts of controlled hoonage grow in popularity, younger and younger kids are going to become fans. And like monkeys, kids see, kids do. Obviously, without the aid of a thoroughly sorted open class rally car with 6-inch diameter piping creating more torque than a windmill, little kids aren’t going to be able to do smokey 720-degree burnouts. However, the real issue here is car control – you either have it or you don’t.

Such connectivity is nice, but it’s easy to find your phone heating up and the battery dwindling. Constant use of the device’s data, graphics processors, higher ambient temperatures or simply charging the device can cause or worsen overheating. That compounds inside vehicles during hot weather, especially sitting in the parking lot.  I have come out of the…

    Only Mercedes-AMG could make a teaser video that shows absolutely no car, and make it as exciting as the one seen here.

Exactly what that car is, though, is the $64,000 question… or more like a $200,000+ question, since there’s a good chance that it is a higher-performance version of the 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT (with or without the Black Series name).The only version of the coupe…

The commercial below is one of two television ads that will pay tribute to American pride. The commercials will air in 30 and 90 second versions on July 3rd in movie theaters and then on July 5th on cable network TV. This one is pretty fitting, the Phil Collins song too. Enjoy!

Available in two trim levels, the base Hybrid and Hybrid Limited, the 2016 Sonata Hybrid has been a decent alternative to the well-known and small spectrum…

    We were already sold on the new 2015 BMW M3 for many reasons. Mercedes-Benz has always been on the tail of BMW M with their AMG vehicles and the latest C63 S AMG begs to prove something. Can the heavier Mercedes-Benz C63 S AMG with its twin-turbo V8 engine pumping 503 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque trump the 425 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque BMW M3?

    admin
    1 Jul 2015 | 4:32 pm
    The One Liter Car Volkswagen's XL1 achieves the miraculous by providing its lucky driver with 235 mpg of fuel consumption. Yes, that does say 235 miles per gallon. No, that is not a misprint or a typo. Volkswagen has again achieved a huge breakthrough in car engineering, by designing this futuristic vehicle for the supremely eco-conscious. In European measurements, that means that this is truly the one liter vehicle that's been proposed for so long. The xl1 uses one liter of fuel to go 100 kilometers. Volkswagen has done it.

    Anthony Crawford
    3 Jul 2015 | 1:55 am
    The latest version of the iconic Mazda MX-5 isn’t just a new-generation car, it’s a total rethink of the world’s best-selling roadster. With dwindling demand for its overweight and overpriced predecessor, the idea of a heavyweight investment in a brand new niche model was a bold move by the Japanese car manufacturer – just as it was a quarter of a century ago when Mazda first revived the convertible. Prior to that, classic lightweight sports cars such as the Lotus Elan, Triumph Spitfire and even the Alfa Romeo Spider, which had brought driving thrills to the masses, had either fallen…

    Volvo’s XC90 Lounge Console concept, revealed in April as a business-class suite for the road, has revealed a new trick this week: premium baby carrying. While the earlier Lounge Console focused on providing ultimate comfort for individuals with a “high-profile lifestyle”, the new Excellence Child Safety Seat concept is all about the family. Both concepts are born from the XC90 Excellence, a new four-seat version of Volvo’s new-generation SUV that promises a higher grade of comfort and luxury – in exchange for a slightly smaller passenger capacity.

  • Honda CR-V VTi-L v Mitsubishi Outlander Exceed :: Comparison review

    Matt Campbell
    2 Jul 2015 | 11:27 pm
    Mid-life updates can be minor or substantial – and it’s fair to say that the changes seen on the recently-arrived 2015 Honda CR-V Series II and 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander slot into the latter category. The revised Honda CR-V went on sale late last year, but this is the first time we’ve had a chance to get one through the garage. Changes for this model include a new-look grille, front bumper and headlights, while the rear also has a new bumper. The changes on this particular car are exaggerated somewhat by the fact it is fitted with a Modulo sports body kit and optional 19-inch wheels.

    Fiat Chrysler’s sales for the month of June 2015 are up by 8.2% -- its highest June sales since 2006. Sales benefited from the high demand for the Chrysler 200 and the Jeep models. Last June, FCA US reported selling 185,035 units – the 63rd straight month that it had sales gains year-over-year. Of its five brands, three (Chrysler, Ram, and Jeep) had sales gains.

    Toyota’s hydrogen-powered Mirai has a 312-mile range, which is more impressive than even the battery-powered Tesla Model S. In addition, the U.S. EPA revealed that it rated 67 MPGe on its test cycle, making it superior to all gasoline-fueled models available in the U.S. It is even better than the Prius hybrid. The Mirai, which has a base price of $58,325 (excluding incentives), is expected to begin selling in California this fall.

    2 Jul 2015 | 8:48 am
    Jeep production will start in India in 2017 as Fiat Chrysler Automobiles expands its joint venture with Tata Motors. For this move, FCA intends to make a $280 million investment. Last year, CEO Sergio Marchionne revealed his plan to turn around the company. His outline included a move to set high sales targets for brands such as Jeep. Marchionne has set a goal that by 2018, Jeep sales will be nearly double what was recorded in 2014. Last week, Jeep chief Mike Manley said that the key to being able to achieve this goal is local production for its top markets. In a recent statement, Marchionne…

The Juke is a supermini/SUV crossover that shook up the industry, forcing its rivals to start making similar styled smaller SUVs. It was redesigned in 2014 to freshen up its looks and make it more practical. They did this by making the boot bigger and adding more equipment. The Juke is great as it offers drivers the chance to own a crossover at an affordable price.

  • 2015 Lexus NX 300h Premier AWD review – Luxury Crossover Aims for a Younger Market

    Chris Davies
    22 Jun 2015 | 6:30 am
    Lexus NX? 2014 saw Lexus enter a new car into the fray of the fast-growing compact crossover sector – the NX. This is a tough segment with heavy competition from big manufacturers, but as this is a Lexus it’s aimed directly at the luxury end of the market, narrowing the field of rivals. Importantly, the modern NX will attract a younger slice of the market too, as aside from the CT the rest of the cars in Lexus’s range naturally appeal to a market of a what Lexus describe as a ‘younger, style-conscious [and] typically urban, active customer base.’ We were…

    Peugeot RCZ-R? When I tested the RCZ Sport THP 200 in late 2013, I was surprised by just how much I enjoyed it and dispelled the myths about it being the ‘poor man’s Audi TT’. Now though, Peugeot have unleashed the same car which has had some major performance enhancements, a 1.6 turbocharged petrol engine producing an astonishing 270 horsepower – the most powerful Peugeot motor to date – it’s shed some weight and weirdly it’s even more economical and produces less emissions than the THP 200, despite all the extra power squeezed out that little…

    This is a featured article promoted by Chipex®  If, like me, you’re particularly proud of keeping your car’s paintwork looking top-notch, the sound you definitely do not want to hear is a metallic whack as you’re travelling at speed behind another car. It means two things: 1. your car’s front end has just been treated to a dose of road rash – or in other words a smattering of nasty-looking chips out of the paintwork, and 2. your stomach has just turned slightly. It’s massively frustrating, and unless you’re willing to drive around with a…

    13 May 2015 | 2:54 pm
    Introduction to the second generation Kia Soul When we reviewed the first-gen Soul Quantum in 2012, we liked it for the funky styling, roomy and well-spec’d cabin, a decent drive plus a competitive price. While the high-spec Quantum’s LED running lights, neat alloy wheels, blacked-out rear glass and gunmetal paint have kept that particular car still looking fairly modern, some of the range now look distinctly outmoded. The arrival of the second-generation Kia S0ul in 2013 sees it benefit from completely fresh styling all-round, a 20mm longer wheelbase, a 15mm wider body, and the…

Usually I would say no but this one looked pretty cool and I actually need a smart phone holder so I agreed. I made the video in the Hyundai as it gave me room to set up the camera and tripod in the back seat. It is the first time I used the video on the camera so it is a little shaky. I messed up and didn’t read the instructions first and put the metal plate that the magnet uses on the outside of the…

A few months ago when I was back in New York I went to the canon event for the new Canon 7D Mark II and was so impressed with it I knew I had to have it.

  • Chinese smog levels force government action on polluting vehicles

    Editor
    2 Jul 2015 | 5:09 am
    China has been cracking down on high-emission transport in an effort to lower the huge amount of smog evident in its major cities. Subsequently, a vast number of scrapyards and recycling sites now contain thousands of completely abandoned buses, cars and trucks.  None of the vehicles in the scrapyards were able to meet even the most lenient of emissions standards. Reports of Beijing having over 20 times the amount of air pollution considered healthy by the World Health Organisation led to the initiative: it’s believed that vehicle emissions accounted for almost a third (31.1 per…

    15 Jun 2015 | 7:25 am
    According to the latest figures, car insurance costs may halve by as early as 2020 due to the increase in the number of driverless vehicles on British roads. It’s estimated that annual premiums could be cut by up to £265 on average within the next five years, with the influx of driverless vehicles expected to ‘eliminate’ bad driving: still considered to be responsible for 90 per cent of road accidents. Are things really moving that fast? Yes.  According to the latest figures, the technology is developing so quickly that road accidents arising from human error…

There’s nothing worse than being stuck in the car in the midst of winter with freezing rain dripping onto your head!  Fortunately, a leaky sunroof is usually a fairly easy problem to fix. Most of the time a leaky sunroof is simply a matter of a clogged up drain tube.  The result is that the water overflows inside the vehicle.  This is usually no more than a 20-minute repair.

    It’s amongst the first of the last from the Australian manufacturing arm of Japanese goliath, Toyota. To say the Camry has had a facelift is to say the Burj Khalifa is a tall building. Effectively, every single component externally, bar the roof and the window line, has been redesigned, re-engineered and rebuilt. The 2.5L engine stays at the same capacity and offers two different peak outputs, depending on which Camry you buy.

  • Those Signs On The Dashboard

    One of the things that you have to learn when you buy a new car is what all the information displayed on the dashboard is what all the warning lights mean. In the cars I remember from my childhood, like the old Mitsubishi Sigma station-wagon my dad let me steer down the driveway, and the Simca that was the first car I owned, there were only a few warning lights: usually the fuel light. Today’s cars have many more sensors and information systems to let you know just about everything that’s going on with its inner workings. This information is usually presented to you via a little light on…

    In a world where speed matters the most, a lot of concept vehicles that were launched to be “supercars” either did not make it to the production line or did not live up to the hype or even their name. We’ve seen numerous renderings and models of supposedly superfast cars, but most of them seemed to have gotten lost on their way out of the motors they were first introduced. But the new Rezvani Beast is clearly an exception. One year after its debut, a better, more powerful version of the low-slung carbon-fiber machine is now almost ready for sale.

  • How To Replace Clutch Slave Cylinder?

    Vincent Philip
    29 Jun 2015 | 3:00 am
    A clutch master cylinder contains a reservoir that stores the brake fluid. It is connected to the clutch slave cylinder through hoses. When the driver presses the clutch pedal, brake fluid flows from the clutch master cylinder to the slave cylinder, applying the pressure necessary to move (engage) the clutch. It has internal and external seals that can fail. If the external seals wear out, the clutch master cylinder will leak brake fluid, reducing the amount of fluid in the car and causing the clutch to malfunction. You may also find leaked brake fluid down by the clutch pedal (inside the…
  • Understand The Use Of Coolant Temperature Sensor

    Vincent Philip
    26 Jun 2015 | 5:58 am
    The Coolant Temperature Sensor is used to measure the temperature of the engine coolant of an internal combustion engine. The readings from this sensor are sent to the Engine control unit (ECU), which uses this data to regulate many pcm functions. The sensor is located in a coolant passage in the engine usually near the thermostat. Functions: The coolant temperature sensor changes resistance with the change in temperature. The ECU is then able to calculate the temperature of the engine, and with inputs from other engine sensors uses lookup tables to carry out adjustments to the engine…

  • What We Think About the New 2015 Bentley Continental GT3-R

    Author
    2 Jul 2015 | 8:06 pm
    At first glance, you might say that the 2015 Bentley Continental GT3-R is nothing extraordinary. Besides, it’s almost more expensive than the GT V-8 by $150,000. Although it has a higher performance model, it has less horsepower than the W-12-powered Speed. And despite being the lightweight version, it still weighs around 4937 pounds. Once you get inside the new Conti though, you’ll find more than enough reasons to love the GT3-R. For one, it has a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that makes 500 horsepower with a nominal output of 572 and 516 lb-ft. From a standstill to 135 mph, it…

    Bentley has unveiled the Continental GT Speed Breitling Jet Team Series. Created by the firm’s Mulliner division, it promises to be a very exclusive limited edition. That’s because just seven examples are going to be built. As the name suggests inspiration has been provided by the Breitling Jet Team, which flies aerobatic displays using seven Aero L-39C Albatros jets. An Onyx and Hallmark two-tone paintjob with yellow highlights matches the colour scheme seen on the team’s aeroplanes. The same bright shade is used to provide some contrast inside, too.

    30 Jun 2015 | 11:34 am
    As part of a mid-life refresh for the entire A-Class range, the high-performance Mercedes-AMG A 45 4Matic version is getting a series of technical and cosmetic tweaks. The changes start with the 2.0 litre turbocharged engine. Power is up by 20 bhp (15 kW / 21 PS) to 375 bhp (280 kW / 381 PS), while torque has risen from 450 Nm (332 lb/ft) to 475 Nm (350 lb/ft). Together with revised ratios for the seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, the result is a drop in the 0-62 mph (100 km/h) time by 0.4 seconds to 4.2 seconds. Top speed remains electronically limited to 155 mph (250 km/h). The AMG Dynamic…

  • Top 10: Facts about the 2016 Chevrolet Cruze

    29 Jun 2015 | 2:36 pm
    3.5 million examples of the original Chevrolet Cruze have been sold around the world since it was introduced in 2008. Undoubtedly the all-new second-generation model, which has just been unveiled, will be under tremendous pressure to emulate that success. Ahead of deliveries beginning early next year, here are ten things to know about the 2016 Cruze: 1. It’s still a four-door sedan Don’t be fooled by the sleeker profile, because the compact Cruze is being launched in four-door saloon guise. Whether or not five-door hatchback and estate versions are in the pipeline remains to be seen. 2.

    Mini has unveiled the all-new 2016 Clubman, which will become part of a five-strong (and more premium) model range. There are two obvious major differences compared to the previous version. First, an increase in length from 3,961 mm (12’ 11”) to 4,253 mm (13’ 11”) clearly indicates that this is a much larger car with enough room inside for five people. Indeed, the latest Clubman isn’t merely a Mini 5-door Hatch with some extra bodywork at the rear. Versus the latter, its wheelbase and width have been extended by 100 mm (4”) and 73 mm (3”) respectively. The second change concerns…

  • The Crazy Sights and Sounds of Jeff Zwart at Pikes Peak

    Ryan Konko
    3 Jul 2015 | 1:00 pm
    This is what a winner looks like. Jeff Zwart knows a thing or two about Pikes Peak. He’s raced there when it was dirt and he’s raced there after it was fully paved. Over 14 years, he’s amassed seven class championships and is known for his prowess through the 12.42-mile course with 156 turns that ends at the 14,115-foot summit. At the 2015 event, Zwart was behind the wheel of a Porsche 911 GT3 Turbo Cup prepped by BBI Autosport that won the Time Attack 1 Class with a pretty incredible 9:46.243 time.

Your front bumper is the part of the car that will deflect most bumps and bangs on the road, saving you a fortune at the panel beaters. However, over time the wear and tear on this part can cause it to fail and need replacing. This is one of the less complex mechanical jobs that you can perform on your car, and it can be attempted by even those with the most basic of technical knowledge.

They are subjected to extremes of heat and motion, and need a constant stream of clean oil to keep their bearings rotating smoothly and efficiently. It’s no wonder that turbochargers often go wrong, requiring the part to be replaced, so what is the process for changing this car part? 1.    Fix Problems If you’re replacing your turbocharger because the part has failed, do you know what caused this breakdown?

    Have you seen a spillage underneath your car that you know is not oil? Is your car growling like a big cat when you turn the steering wheel? If so, then the likely culprit could be your power steering pump. Like all parts in the engine this pump is prone to fatigue, with the gaskets and seals around the unit generally failing first. Although some hardened mechanics will argue that it is possible to rebuild the unit, it is generally best replaced with a new or second hand part. This is a moderately difficult procedure that you should expect to take around four hours. 1.    Finding the Power…

    Has your car been bucking as you drive on the open road? When you put the key in the ignition, does your engine simply crank and turn over, but fail to start? If this is the case then the likely offender in the frame is the fuel pump. This part is used to supply fuel at pressure into the engine, driving the combustion process. An ineffective pump means that your car is not getting the feed of fuel it needs to run properly. Like all parts this is prone to fatigue and will fail around the 100,000 mile mark. 1.    Locate the Fuel Pump Your car’s fuel pump should be located in the fuel tank.

Owing to the similarity and past of the Celica’s name, it is frequently mistaken for the Supra, and vice versa.

    3 Jul 2015 | 1:46 am
    The ignition lock cylinder is the part the key fits into. This is the first step in the process that starts the vehicle and it activates parts like radio, windshield wipers, cigarette lighter and other components. It protects the vehicle from being theft. On some vehicles the lock cylinder is a separate component, where as in other vehicles it is a single unit with the electronic ignition switch, which sends power to the starter motor to fire up the engine. The ignition lock cylinders will have eight (8) cut positions, numbering from 1 to 8. Thumblers are placed in side in these positions.

  • How To Replace Clutch Slave Cylinder?

    Vincent Philip
    29 Jun 2015 | 3:00 am
    A clutch master cylinder contains a reservoir that stores the brake fluid. It is connected to the clutch slave cylinder through hoses. When the driver presses the clutch pedal, brake fluid flows from the clutch master cylinder to the slave cylinder, applying the pressure necessary to move (engage) the clutch. It has internal and external seals that can fail. If the external seals wear out, the clutch master cylinder will leak brake fluid, reducing the amount of fluid in the car and causing the clutch to malfunction. You may also find leaked brake fluid down by the clutch pedal (inside the…

    Vincent Philip
    26 Jun 2015 | 5:58 am
    The Coolant Temperature Sensor is used to measure the temperature of the engine coolant of an internal combustion engine.

    So both my bike projects have somewhat stalled. So I decided to get off my butt, and do something productive. I scored a cool old school toolbag off my mate which needs some work, and the GSX250 needs a new earth lead for the new starter solenoid. So in doing these I found out some things. On the up side: tonight I made quite possibly one of the neatest looking bits of auto electrical engineering I have ever done. On the down side: I put the wrong sized eye terminals on it. On the up side: It turns out I can sew. On the down side: I’ve got a long way to go yet.

    Hans Muth is one hell of a designer. One of the driving forces behind the legendary Suzuki Katana, it is a lesser known fact that Herr Muth is also the designer behind the BMW R90S of the mid 70s. Built to throw off the idea that BMW built only plaid boring motorcycles, the sporting German machine was given both mechanical and aesthetic upgrades to make it stand out from the vanilla BMW bikes of the period. Packing 67hp, and the ability to reach 200kmh, this is definitely one motorcycle that had BMW thinking outside the box. Today’s bike comes from Australia, an incredibly clean barn…

Rust Encapsulator can also be used in this case, but it should be used in any situation where all rust was not fully removed.

It seems either they crack at the welds or they just fit poorly and leave much to be desired when fitting the rest of the exhaust.

    After that recent storm, Delaware County has seen a lot of damage from trees falling. Even those of us who were lucky enough to escape property damage were wondering what we have done if had been us. That being said, we decided to compile a blog post to make sure that if a tree does ever fall on your car, you’re prepared. When you first hear that tree limb hit your vehicle, instinct might tell you to remove it and check out the damage yourself. However, that is not a good idea. The damage is done, and you could hurt yourself or cause more damage by trying to pull down the limb.

    Emmett Young

    While attempting to dodge all of the potholes this winter, you may have caused some damage to your alignment. Wheel alignment is an important part of car care. Poor tire alignment may decrease your miles per gallon and wear out your tires quickly. But how do you know when it’s time to get your wheel aligned? Drifting. If you notice that your car is pulling to the right or left when you are trying to drive straight, then it is probably time for an alignment. Properly aligned tires drive straight and true, along with your steer wheel. Unevenness. If your front and back tires have…

      The Toyota GT86 is the same thing as the Scion FR-S, only it is sold in Europe under the name of Toyota. So, revealing of the new version will definitely resonate here too and mainly because the Scion will probably receive this limited special edition model called the Blanco. As you might’ve guessed already Blanco basically means white and while it is obvious why this car is called that way, there are other certain elements on it additionally differentiating it from the rest of the lot. The new version is the priciest version of the Toyota GT86 up until this moment. In UK, the car…

Don’t get us wrong here, German tuners aren’t all into making the fastest, the most powerful or the sickest rides out there. Money has to be made and just making tuning kits costing tens of thousands of Euros wouldn’t do the trick.

    The Quatrac range of all-season tyres from Vredestein. What are they and why even bother fitting them? In the UK we often really don’t see the point of cold weather (winter) tyres and the benefits they can bring to drivers. That way of thinking may just have a point.

    Today we take a look at rides influenced by the Wu Tang Clan. Why? Because we can. Nah mean? A long time ago when I couldn’t tell a rotary from a rotisserie, I enjoyed the adventurous tales of people with too much money and occasionally zero taste in Hot 4’s magazine. Of course not everyone could afford to restitch everything inside their rides with purple cow hide nor drown their car in fresh candy apple red paint and so the readers rides section was probably born. You could submit your ride and with everything crossed, hopefully be able to one day claim your pride and joy had…

    So who’s keen on a rusty wreck that’s seen many summers rotting away under a tree? Lots of people on Facebook it seems! A back story, please. For as long as I’ve known him my father in law has always had a few rusty wrecks parked out the back of the farm. There’s a VS Commodore near the wood bin that’s been busy collecting spiders, a commuter bus behind the shed that’s been relegated to storing the collection of bbqs and until recently there was also a small Honda and a VW powered kit car that’s sole purpose was to collect leaves and rust in that…

    You know what makes a great utility vehicle? Something that came out of the factory designated as a ute. You know what makes an interesting utility vehicle? Something that didn’t start out as one… There’s probably a proper term for the art of turning a non ute into a load hauling beast and a half but if there is, I’ve missed it. So I’ll dub this form ‘Uterizing’ (which in all honesty sounds more medical than mechanical but still..)

All the technology in the brand’s bestselling family has been redeveloped so that it yet again defines the benchmark in the segment. During the development work, high priority was placed on the reduction of CO2 emissions. All technologies were focused on reducing drive resistance. A good example is aerodynamics: The A4 Sedan has the best drag coefficient in its class at 0.23. The new models also have impressively low CO2 emissions of 95 grams per kilometer (152.9 grams per mile)…

  • Driven: 2015 Volvo V60 Polestar

    Andrew Ling
    22 May 2015 | 1:08 pm
    When someone utters the word “wagon”, I’ll bet that it’s almost impossible for you to disassociate it with the image of a Volvo station wagon. “Wagon” is to Volvo as “Jelly” is to peanut butter, and “Coke” is to rum. And a Volvo wagon was almost the quintessential definition of the “family people mover” before it was replaced by the minivan, which was subsequently then replaced with the SUV. Although wagons weaned in popularity in the early to mid 2000’s, they’re making their comeback. Now I’m not referring to the large body-on-frame faux wood panelled American…

    As far as Winter tire technology has come, snow boots are still a performance let down for those who truly enjoy the driving aspect of owning a sporting car. It would be great to be able to leave Summer rubber on the car until the first snowfall, but the sad reality is that high performance tires don’t work below about 7 degrees Celsius and that temperature often arrives much earlier than the white stuff in many parts of Canada. BF Goodrich know all of this and have launched a new tire called the g-Force COMP-2 A/S, aimed at American muscle cars along with European and Asian performance…

In the second installment, I’m going to talk about the positive aspects of servicing at a new car dealership. The first and most obvious reason that you should service your new car at a dealership is that it has a warranty. The chances are that you might have a niggling problem or two that you want resolved and from a convenience standpoint, it makes sense to have your maintenance done at the same time. If you actually liked any of…

    This 1,400-horsepower Corvette is known as the H8R MAKER. And that makes sense. When you have that much power in a Corvette, and racing up and down Texas highways, there are bound to be a lot of haters. Plenty of big-horsepower rivals have fallen alongside it: a 1,200 horsepower turbo Supra, a 1,100-horsepower turbo ’Vette, and even the camera car, which is a 1,300-horsepower supercharged Corvette. But this copper C6 takes them all. On this built motor comes a two-stage progressive F1X ProCharger, running E85 gasoline. And with a pair of nitrous kits, it’s 1,400 horsepower to the wheels.

LEDs deliver maximum light using minimal power, making them perfect for use with 12V automotive systems. Light-emitting diodes are completely different than traditional, filament-based incandescent and halogen lights. Unlike old-school incandescent (Edison-style) bulbs, with LED lights, there’s no filament to burn out or heat up. In fact, these tiny little lights aren’t actually lights at all…

    BMW has really blown all competitors out of the water, so to speak, with the introduction of their i8 hydrogen fuel cell research vehicle, during the BMW Group Innovation Days 2015. It’s incredible how the company managed to keep this interesting project a secret for so long, especially since it was completed back in 2012. The research vehicle is based on the BMW i8, although instead of the plug-in hybrid setup this menacing car is powered by a hydrogen fuel cell setup. As a result, the three-cylinder 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine has been replaced by a fuel stack. Energy comes…

  • 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG Review

    Tristan Cathers
    1 Jul 2015 | 7:25 am
    Affordability is a relative term. In 2014 Mercedes Benz gave us the CLA 250, which had a starting price of just under $30,000, making it the most affordable car in the luxury automaker’s lineup. They also gave us an AMG model to match—the CLA 45 AMG. Cars adorned with those three letters typically top $100,000, making the CLA 45 AMG’s starting price tag of $48,000 seem like a bargain. See? It’s relative. This all-new, untested CLA 45 AMG class raised an important question: could Mercedes Benz maintain the same level of luxury and prestige, one that has made their…

    It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the F-150 is overwhelmingly the most popular car model for Mojo Motors shoppers. The F-150 has been the highest selling vehicle in the United States over the past twenty years. The second most popular vehicle is the Jeep Wrangler, one of the most trusted all-wheel drive vehicles. Another popular vehicle that also has off roading capability is the Chevrolet Tahoe although we suspect that shoppers are more interested in the Tahoe for its ability to carry many passengers than its ability to drive through the mud.
