The idea of automakers venturing into the world of aviation isn't an entirely new thing. Honda, for instance, has their HondaJet.

Electric Volvo XC40 will have a frunk, new driver interface

The new XC40 EV will be more than just an electric powertrain dropped into the company's small crossover, Volvo announced Wednesday, backing up that claim with design sketches and some fresh insights into its approach to electrification.

The new Zagato must be bought in a pair with its reimagined retro equivalent, the...

Nissan is rolling out a new type of boxy electric car for the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show—the IMk (Intelligent Mobility for the brand, the "k" is for kei?) concept electric vehicle is a Copper-colored cutie for trendy urban types who live on teeny streets, the kind you'd find in Japan.

Here's The Lowdown On The Corvette C8's Infotainment System

The Chevrolet Corvette is probably one of the most talked-about American nameplates these days. It's the first mid-engine 'Vette, plus it has a very attractive price tag that could give its Italian counterparts a run for their money – considering the performance numbers it can deliver. It has almost been three months before the Golden Bowtie brand launched the Corvette...

Mitsubishi will reveal a new compact SUV concept with range-extending EV tech at this month's Tokyo motor show. The MI-Tech Concept, first confirmed last month, is previewed again in a new image released by the firm.

Limited-run Abarth 695 70th Anniversary unveiled

As you might have noticed over the years, Abarth is no stranger to special editions. With its 70th year upon us, 2019 has been host to an array of limited-run variants of both the 124 and 595/695 ranges, but the most impressive of them all seems to have been left until last. Unveiled at the brand’s 2019 owner’s meeting in...

Lexus IS F Sport Blackline Special Edition Returns For 2020 Model Year

Starting with the obvious, this isn’t the IS F you were waiting for. The third generation of the compact executive sedan doesn’t come with a naturally aspirated V8, but on the upside, the fixed-head coupe RC F can quench your thirst for burbly performance and smoking rear tires. The question is, what do you get from Lexus for $46,225 including...

The Toyota C-HR finally looks a little less wild for 2020

Toyota has refreshed the C-HR for the 2020 model year, and, joy of joys, it’s decided to make the styling less, uh, “controversial,” even if only slightly. Around the rear, the styling hasn’t changed much — or really at all. However, it was never the rear that we had a problem with, it was always the front. Mercifully, the face...

The New Toyota GR Supra Has Been Recalled… By BMW

The new A90 Toyota GR Supra has been recalled in the USA by BMW.

BMW, which makes the new tuner’s favourite alongside the Z4 at its Graz...

Suzuki will unveil duo of too-cute concepts at 2019 Tokyo Motor Show

Suzuki may no longer sell vehicles in North America (man, we wish the Jimny was still around), but it's still a significant player in the global automotive industry.
