    Report: Subaru might build WRX hatchback after all
    1396623660

    The 2015 Subaru WRX is awesome. Really awesome. We told you as much in our first drive of the new sedan back in December. Honestly, our only complaint about Fuji Heavy's new performance machine is that it's no longer offered as a hatchback – the new WRX is a sedan-only affair, despite the ...

    Official: 2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Coupe bringing big, fast style to New York
    1395216000

    The 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe is gorgeous. That's a fact. We fell in love with it in concept form at the Frankfurt Motor Show last fall, and swooned over its production-ready body at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this month. For the New York Auto Show in April, Mercedes will once again ...

    Spy Shots: Next Audi R8 caught on the 'Ring
    1395154800

    Now that we're kinda-sorta-maybe-slowly thawing out from this horrible winter, automakers are moving away from the harsh extremes of winter testing and taking their new wares for laps around the infamous Nürburgring. What better way to kick off the sports car testing season than some fresh ...

    Report: 2015 Audi TT's digital gauge cluster to spread throughout lineup
    1395151260

    File this one under: "makes sense to us." According to Car and Driver, the slick new gauge cluster found in the 2015 Audi TT will expand to other models in the automaker's lineup. In the near term, expect the tech to make its way into the next R8 supercar (with a special performance display for ...

    1395145560

    Volkswagen is recalling 150,201 Passat sedans over potential headlight malfunctions. All of the affected vehicles are from the 2012 and 2013 model years. According to the automaker, if the sedan's hood is "closed roughly (or dropped from a certain height)," the force can cause the low-beam ...

    Exclusive: Infiniti explored V8, diesel, hybrid power for Q50 Eau Rouge
    Concept Wasn't Always A 'Four-Door GT-R' 1394820900

    Infiniti boss Johan de Nysschen "insists" the car be put into production. Over the past few years, rumors have swirled about an Infiniti-badged, four-door version of the Nissan GT-R. Makes sense to us – Infiniti could certainly use a performance halo, and the seemingly forgotten IPL ...

    1394652660

    While the Dodge Journey crossover remains largely unchanged for the 2014 model year, there are two new flavors of the seven-passenger CUV on offer: the butch-looking Crossroad, and the SE V6 AWD, pictured right, which makes its debut today. As its name suggests, this new Journey model features the ...

    Video: Was the Corvette Museum sinkhole a conspiracy? This guy thinks so
    1394571720

    About a month ago, tragedy struck the National Corvette Museum when a sinkhole opened up underneath the facility, swallowing eight cars and causing tons of carnage in the process. We saw it all on video, learned how Chevy would extract the damaged 'Vettes, and even checked in on the repair ...

    Official: Mercedes-Benz bringing Sprinter 4x4 to US
    1394232240

    Back in December, Mercedes-Benz announced a four-wheel-drive version of its endlessly charming Sprinter van (the European model is pictured above), but didn't make a mention of any plans for US market sales. Now, that's all changed, as the German automaker has confirmed that its Sprinter 4x4 will ...

    Geneva: We obsessively covered the 2014 Geneva Motor Show
    1394154060

    With just under 80 debuts rounding out our coverage of the Geneva Motor Show, it's fair to say that we are spent. It's been a busy couple of days, and once again, the Swiss expo proved to be a great venue for hot, new debuts from global automakers. We've got our full roundup of coverage posted ...

    Geneva: Mansory Vivere is surprisingly subdued
    1394049540

    As far as tuning companies go, Mansory isn't exactly known for its restraint. That's why this Bugatti Veyron-based Vivere is a little shocking to us. In terms of ostentatiousness, this thing is actually pretty tame, especially considering how over-the-top Bugatti itself can go with its legendary ...

    Geneva: Techart modified Porsche 911 Turbo S packs 620 hp, 0-62 in 2.8 seconds
    1394042580

    Considering how many absolutely ridiculous tuner cars are featured in Geneva (stay tuned to see plenty, as our coverage continues), it's often refreshing to see some of the more modestly modified cars, like this new Porsche 911 Turbo S from the folks at Techart. Visually, there's a subtle body ...

    Geneva: 2015 BMW X3 gets a new nose, diesel power
    1394038920

    The second-generation BMW X3 launched in late 2010, and while it's never really wowed us, it's still a solid offering in a highly competitive class. In an effort to keep things fresh, BMW has given its X3 a nip/tuck for the 2015 model year, but perhaps the biggest news (for the US market, anyway) ...

    Geneva: Mini Clubman Concept isn't mini, isn't a Clubman
    1394029200

    Hey, remember when Mini was... mini? I know, you've heard all this before. But seriously. Take this new Mini Clubman Concept, for example. As you'll recall, the current Clubman slots in between the Hardtop and Countryman models in the Mini lineup. But because the new, third-generation Mini has ...

    Geneva: 2014 Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake is one hot hauler
    1394024340

    Oh look, another super-hot wagon that won't be making its way to the US. Awesome. Actually, in all honesty, it really is awesome. Meet the Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake, a red-hot (or blue-hot?) version of the rakish XF wagon that originally bowed at the Geneva Motor Show back in 2012. The formula ...

    Geneva: 2014 Volkswagen Scirocco still looks hot, still not coming to the US
    1394017140

    Ever since its debut in 2008, we've been lusting after the mean-faced, squat-stanced Volkswagen Scirocco. And while there are still no plans to bring the car to the US, folks in other markets are being treated to a slightly updated version of The People's (Other) GTI. The Scirocco formula hasn't ...

    Geneva: Volkswagen Golf GTE is mean, green eco machine
    1394011800

    I have this theory that keeps coming up when recommending new cars to people: "Just buy a GTI." Seriously. It's a perfect little hot hatch, with a comfortable, well-appointed interior, and the sort of dynamics that make it a nice everyday driver while still offering gobs of fun when the roads get ...

    Geneva: Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge Concept bows again, now with more GT-R [w/video]
    1393984740

    Think back to the 2014 Detroit Auto Show and you'll remember the Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge concept – a sedan that showed the potential design direction for a seriously high-performance take on the Japanese automaker's new entry-level luxury sedan. And while the show car we saw in Detroit was ...
