A brief taste of Korea's latest dish | 2018 Hyundai Kona

Disclaimer: We were limited to a short 10-minute drive at Hyundai's research and development facility in Namyang, about a 90-minute drive from the South Korean Capital of Seoul. The closed loop didn't provide much in the way of road variation, and we reached a blistering top speed of 45 mph with all of three opportunities to use the brakes.

2018 Nissan Leaf spied with hardly any camouflage

We're getting close to the full reveal of the Nissan Leaf, since Nissan itself released a teaser for the car. But thanks to one of our spy photographers, we're getting our best look yet at the next-generation electric hatch.

Up at the front, the biggest change is the addition of a faux grille flanked by horizontally-oriented headlights. This look is a…
