Car subscriptions get imaginative at New York Auto Show

Among the shiny new cars, crossovers, and SUVs of the New York International Auto Show this week, enthusiasm for subscription ownership is quietly growing. The smartphone-style model - where, rather than a lease or finance purchase, drivers pay a single fee each month that includes the car, its insurance, servicing, and other common costs - is slowly gaining traction, as unexpectedly good news from Volvo confirmed.

Why Honda’s hidden hybrid makes the 2019 Insight pivotal

You can't accuse Honda of sleeping on electrification, but of all the EVs, hybrids, and fuel-cell cars in its line-up, the new 2019 Insight could be both the simplest and the most effective. Revealed in full at the New York International Auto Show this week, the hybrid sedan is, at first glance, hardly eco-thrilling in the grand scheme of things.

Genesis Essentia first look: Electric lust

Genesis is forging its own path, trying to carve out a segment of the luxury market without riding on the coat-tails of Hyundai and Kia, and it needed a figurehead car.

Lincoln Aviator first look: This plug-in hybrid luxury SUV nails it

Lincoln did good. The new Lincoln Aviator Concept may, so the company maintains, be a mere preview of what the automaker envisages next in its range, but it could do a lot worse than to send the three-row SUV straight from the New York International Auto Show to its production team.
