The 2017 Hyundai Elantra Takes On The Top 3 Compact Sedans In America

Apple's CarPlay and Google's Android Auto have come a long way in terms of integrating our smartphones into our car's navigation and entertainment systems, but they're still reliant on the software the auto manufacturer decides to install, as well their infrequent updates. Since all the features a driver needs are already on the phone itself, from maps and navigation to music and phone support, what if we could just connect the phone directly to the car, and have it serve as the infotainment hardware and display?

What you need to know about hydrogen fuel-cell cars

When it comes to selling a green vision, hydrogen power has an advantage: a glass of pure water the only thing spilling from your tailpipe.
