Our Mazda MX-5 Miata has the best engine bay in the business

One of the things that's really disappointing about modern cars is how they all hide their technology under a proverbial bushel. You pop the hood, and nine times out of 10, you're faced with some amount of black plastic hiding the functional bits. On some cars the plastic covers the bare minimum to have a "presentable" engine. Others have every tank, hose, wire and screw buried under a layer of smooth plastic. Few exemplify this practice better than engine bay of the current Lexus LS 460, seen…
The Miata has nothing to hide under the hood.

Toyota preps FT-4X off-road concept for New York

The company recently has been using off-road vehicles to burnish its reputation as a rough-and-tough truck and SUV maker.

Mercedes-Benz to offer 10 new EVs by 2022

Last year, Mercedes-Benz unveiled its Generation EQ concept to preview the new electric vehicle that it plans bring to market by 2020. It was the first showing in a larger plan to create an electric "EQ" sub-brand and bring 10 new EVs to its lineup by 2025. Apparently that wasn't ambitious enough, as now the German automaker will have those EVs market-ready by 2022, Automotive News reports.
