    1412357580

    We had a chance to drive the tiny Opel Adam following the Frankfurt Motor Show last fall, and what we found was a cute little city car that's decently fun, but hardly sporty. But that's about to change, as Opel has thrown a dose of sport at its plucky little runabout, and the finished result, the ...

    Paris: Peugeot 308 GT spices up the French Focus fighter
    1412323200

    In the face of hot five-door hatches like the Ford Focus ST, Volkswagen Golf R and Renault Megane GT 220 (to say nothing of the Renaultsport Megane), it's high time that French manufacturer Peugeot added some life to its C-segment entry, the 308. This is the 308 GT, and while it won't pose a ...

    Paris: Honda Jazz Prototype is brand's latest production-ready 'concept'
    1412289720

    Another auto show, another Honda "prototype."

And yes, this is far from the first time we've railed ...

    Paris: 2015 Volkswagen Polo GTI is the VW hot hatch we really want
    1412287260

    The degree of love for the Volkswagen Golf GTI at Autoblog is at or above that for any other hatchback sold in the US market.

    Paris: Fiat 500X scampers across the Alps
