Cadillac ATS takes on BMW

Does Cadillac have a chance against BMW? The US car company reckons it does, and the 2012 Cadillac ATS is the Bimmer-killer patriots have been waiting for. Unveiled this week, the ATS mixes rear-wheel-drive with the lowest curb weight in its class, with plenty of emphasis placed on road-handling and performance to compete with the Germanic titans.

Cadillac Converj concept car to hit dealers as Cadillac ELR

One of the things I really like about car show season at the major shows around the world is that we get to see some cool concept cars. One of the cool green concepts that made its way around many major car shows from GM was called the Cadillac Converj concept. The concept was a luxury coupe that used extended range electric tech for motivation.

In-car Internet coming to Cadillac soon

In-car Internet coming to Cadillac soon

In case driving around in a Cadillac isn't enough for you, come April you'll be able to get the Internet while out on the road, too. And it's all because of a new system called Cadillac WiFi that is based on an Autonet Mobile device. This device is completely portable and makes it so computers can access the Internet over a local connection.

In case you want a car with this gizmo built in, your first option will be the CTS Sports Sedan. However, you will be able to buy the WiFi device by itself, though it'll cost you $499 plus $29 a month for the service.

At the moment, Cadillac is one of only a few car companies looking to pursue Internet for in the car. However, there is some concern that within a few years this technology will be useless, once 3G and 4G cell phone networks and devices are more readily available, cheaper and more reliable. But for now, it's still pretty cool.

2016 Camaro first-drive – Look out, Mustang

2016 Camaro first-drive – Look out, Mustang

Don’t underestimate the 2016 Camaro, or indeed how important it is. The chunky Transformers styling may border on the caricature from some angles, but the Camaro is deadly serious when it comes to winning new converts to GM: a full 63-percent of the outgoing model were General Motors virgins. So, when Chevrolet asked if I wanted to take the current engineering prototype out on the track, it seemed rude to say no.

Lexus RC 350 F SPORT Review – Wolf’s Clothing

Lexus RC 350 F SPORT Review – Wolf’s Clothing

When you're driving a bright orange Lexus RC 350 F SPORT, you quickly realize two things. First, that even when you're in laid-back San Francisco, people are going to stare, even if they’ll try to make it look like they’re not interested. Second, that nobody is going to let you out of junctions or to merge in their lane (though they'll often match your speed, just ahead or behind of you, so that they can peer at the badge; Lexus is still more associated with sensible - maybe staid - sedans than outlandishly swoopy coupes). Like the RC 350 F SPORT itself, relationships on the road are complicated.

GM slashes ELR and Spark EV to regen green auto

GM slashes ELR and Spark EV to regen green auto

GM is slashing EV and hybrid car pricing at both the budget and luxury ends of the spectrum, as it attempts to spur last-gasp sales while new models are readied. At the fancy end of the scale, Cadillac has made further reductions on its distinctive but little-loved ELR hybrid coupe, a car which has struggled to find buyers since its debut two years ago. Meanwhile, down at the compact level, Chevrolet is dropping Spark EV pricing in an attempt to get more drivers into its all-electric city car.

Chevy Volt production to halt for 4 weeks: slow sales cited

Chevy Volt production to halt for 4 weeks: slow sales cited

Things aren't looking so good for General Motors' gas-electric hybrid, with the company revealing that Chevrolet Volt production will be suspended for four weeks this summer. The reason revolves around slow sales numbers, and is also to shift focus toward preparing for the upcoming 2016 Chevy Volt model, which will have certain different production requirements. The plant that makes the Volt will likely be staying open during the suspended production, however; that plant is under construction as GM preps to start building the new Volts and the Cadillac CT6.

Chevy Malibu hit with GM’s latest sunroof recall

Chevy Malibu hit with GM’s latest sunroof recall

General Motors is the latest auto maker to recall some vehicles due to overly sensitive controls -- in this case, the problem affects the Chevrolet Malibu. The affected cars span the 2013 to 2015 model years, and are afflicted with a problem we've been seeing a crackdown on lately: controls that are too sensitive, causing a setting to be changed (in this case, the sunroof to close) with only the slightest touch. Almost 92,000 of the Malibu vehicles are affected.

Hyundai Elantras recalled: power steering troubles cited

Hyundai Elantras recalled: power steering troubles cited

Hyundai has revealed plans to recall approximately 263,000 of its Hyundai Elantra and Elantra Touring cars, all of them located in North America. The reason revolves around the power steering, which is prone to failure and could potentially leave drivers with a lot of difficulty turning the wheel -- a hazard should the loss happen during on-road operation. The oldest vehicles affected are of the 2008 model year, while both the 2009 and 2010 model years have also been hit.
