With the Mitsubishi Motors Concept XR-PHEV, the LA Auto Show 2014 sees a slick plug-in-hybrid electric vehicle drivetrain paired with high-end, bold styling – in bright red, of course. Mitsubishi brought this vehicle to LA not only reaffirm their commitment to the US market, but to show how future vehicles will look and run. As this vehicle is a concept, … Continue reading

2015 Nissan Murano eyes-on

This year at the 2014 LA Auto Show we’ve been given a good look at the 2015 Nossan Murano. This is a vehicle that was originally showed off (in its earlier form) as the Nissan Resonance Concept at the 2013 Detroit Auto show. Back then we crossed our fingers that this vehicle would eventually see the real showroom floor as … Continue reading

Here’s what $400,000 of Bentley gets you

Nobody quite does luxury and performance like Bentley. The company’s legacy of Bentley Boys, flogging their supercharged cars from road race to road race in the 1920s, has been given the knowing nod by special-edition cars from the marque for decades now, but never quite so comprehensively as the 2015 Mulsanne Speed. Taking the flagship spot at the top of … Continue reading

Behold, the redesigned Outlander. This is the second edition in Mitsubishi’s Outlander lineup, the first coming in 2014. This model has a new and improved look to it, coming with a smoother fascia and a wider array of options.

Surprise: Ford’s aluminum 2015 F-150 gets better economy

We knew the 2015 Ford F-150 drove well, we knew it could tow and go off-road, but until today we didn’t know how much that controversial switch to aluminum and new EcoBoost engine options would affect fuel economy. Now, we do. Ford has announced EPA estimates for the four engine options that can be found under the aluminum hood, and … Continue reading

2016 Toyota Mirai First-Drive – Fuel-Cells Dawning

You can’t accuse Toyota of rushing the 2016 Toyota Mirai to market. The hydrogen powered sedan may look like a vision of the future circa Buck Rogers, but its fuel-cell powertrain is decidedly cutting-edge, not to mention determinedly optimistic around issues of infrastructure and regulatory commitment to zero-emission vehicles. At $57,500 pre-subsidies, it seems the future carries a significant cost … Continue reading

2015 Lexus IS 250 Review – Distinctly Divisive

It’s never been tougher to be a small, sporty sedan. Luxury buyers are being wooed by the segment above, while the gradual up-speccing of full-sized sedans below is making it harder and harder to stand out. Factor in the growing number of more practical coupes on one side, and nimble sports crossovers squeezing in from the opposite direction, and the … Continue reading

I drove Audi’s car that talks to traffic lights

Imagine how much better your life would be if you were less preoccupied with traffic lights. If your car was connected to the the city’s traffic network of lights, and could let you know precisely how long before the light you’re approaching turns green. Or if, should you be already waiting at the light, you knew exactly when it was … Continue reading

SlashGear to race against piloted Audi RS 7 at Hockenheimring

Automobile development has traditionally progressed on separate paths that only ever so rarely dipped into another’s territory. That is most especially true when it comes to developments in driver assistance and autonomous driving technologies, more often than not geared towards sedans and consumer models. Audi, however, is pushing the boundaries with the RS 7, the world’s sportiest piloted driving car, … Continue reading

2015 Ford F-150 First Drive: The big aluminum risk

The stakes are high when you’re redesigning the best-selling vehicle in America, and you could’ve perhaps forgiven Ford for taking a low-key approach to the 2015 F-150. Instead, however, the new truck aims for a trio of improvements (and companion challenges): an all-new aluminum body and box that needs to convince traditionalists that steel isn’t the only metal; a new … Continue reading
