    Official: Citroën C4 Cactus production model keeps it weird and bumpy [w/video]
    1391696400

    This is the new Citroën C4 Cactus, and it's what you get when you combine the designs of a Land Rover Range Rover Evoque and a Jeep Cherokee with a hint of woodie wagon. This is a fascinating and thoughtful little package, even if you aren't attracted by its appearance. The Airbump...

    Report: Fiat 500X poised for Paris catwalk
    1391611500

    We've known for some time that the new, Fiat-based baby Jeep (which may or may not be called the Jeepster) is set to arrive at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. What we weren't sure of was whether its platform mate, the so-called Fiat 500X, would be doing so alongside or at a later date. Well,...

    Report: Jaguar to reveal small sedan at Paris show
    1386797400

    Small sedans are big business for luxury automakers. The C-Class is the top seller for Mercedes-Benz, much as the 3 Series is for BMW, but Jaguar has historically missed out on that market. Its last attempt, the X-Type, proved woefully inadequate, and Jaguar hasn't attempted to take on that...

    Report: Tear gas fired at PSA job protesters outside of Paris Motor Show
    1349811900

    Police in Paris fired tear gas at demonstrators outside of the Paris Motor Show today. Around 1,000 protesters showed up in an attempt to break through police lines and gain access to the show in a demonstration against further austerity measures. The group included workers from a PSA Peugeot...

    Report: What's next for Jaguar after F-Type? A small sedan and a utility vehicle
    1349704860

    Porsche's heart lives in the rear end of the 911. The heart of Mercedes-Benz resides more in the brand values of the Three-Pointed Star than any one model. Mini is defined by petite packages wrapped in giant amounts of sass. Since the end of the Series III XJ in 1992, however, what has...

    Video: Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Electric Drive laps Ascari
    1349647320

    A philosophical question from your automotive enthusiast future: does a supercar need to make noise in order to be a supercar? The easy answer might be no. If they're more powerful, do everything faster, attract the opposite sex, cost a gang of money and look better in orange than actual...

    Video: Mercedes-Benz previews next S-Class with Aesthetics S Concept
    1349473440

    Mercedes-Benz took a moment at the Paris Motor Show to display its Aesthetics S Concept. Built as a combination static, physical sculpture and audio-visual presentation, the design exercise lends a glimpse at what we can expect to see from the next-generation S-Class. Mercedes-Benz projected a...

    Report: Mercedes B-Class headed to America... but only as an EV?
    1349387940

    The Mercedes-Benz B-Class is a promising, small family vehicle, but Car and Driver is reporting that the new B-Class is only coming to the U.S. as the zero-emission Electric Drive model. It would appear that if Mercedes does proceed with this plan, it will likely be positioned as a premium...

    Official: Ferrari FF gets sweeping panoramic roof option
    1349285460

    Perhaps overshadowed at the Paris Motor Show by the carbon fiber chassis bits of the still unnamed Enzo successor, was news from Ferrari about a roof. The oddball Italian supercar maker has announced that its FF will now be available with a full-length panoramic roof – the first of its...

    Report: VW Bulli production hopes dead, 313-mpg XL1 coming next year
    1349123460

    Volkswagen had a lot going on at this year's Paris Motor Show, including, it seems, dishing to Britain's What Car? about some product plans. VW board member Ulrich Hackenberg has gone on record saying that the Bulli concept van, as shown at the last Geneva Motor Show, is not currently planned...

    Paris: 2013 Land Rover Range Rover
    1349035500

    The Land Rover Range Rover gave a wide, laid-back grin to the Paris Motor Show. Only the fourth change in body style in 41 years, this one has finally been given some angles and curves and a bit of rake, still certifiably a Range Rover but there's more going on than we're used to. Luckily it has...

    Paris: Peugeot 2008 Concept raises the roof for B-segment CUVs
    1349026140

    Peugeot's naming convention might not be all that exciting, but it does come up with some tantalizing vehicle designs. What we see here is the 2012 Peugeot 2008 Concept, which is going into production next year. The new subcompact crossover will slot below the Peugeot 3008 CUV. As we saw in...

    Paris: 2013 Chevrolet Spark gets refreshed for Europe
    1349019000

    The Chevrolet Spark minicar may just now be hitting the big roads of the United States, but the car has already been on sale in other markets, including Europe, for a while. And because of that, the Euro-spec Spark has undergone a minor facelift for the 2013 model year, showing its slight...

    Paris: Toyota debuts 2013 Verso with a new nose and high hopes
    1348950720

    After the mini-people mover's introduction in 2010, the 2013 Toyota Verso signals a significant mid-cycle refresh for the model. Changes for the 2013 Verso include visual updates to the front and rear – new headlights, LED running lights, taillights etc. – as well as other...

    Paris: 2013 Audi S3 is hot-hatch forbidden fruit par excellence
    1348939980

    Alas, of all the not-for-U.S. models we see every year, some sting more than others. While the Volkswagen GTI may define 'hot-hatch' stateside, the 2013 Audi S3 ups the ante, and it looks even tastier and forbidden up close. The centerpiece of the A3 is the new 2.0-liter TFSI inline-4. The...

    Paris: 2013 Citroën C3 Picasso exemplifies utility, cubist charm
    1348930860

    We Americans are far too self-conscious to widely adopt the immensely utilitarian MPV, opting for bloated, high-riding crossovers. In Europe, on the other hand, vehicles like the Citroen C3 Picasso are optimal for families in towns where the streets were once farm paths. This funky...

    Paris: 2013 Peugeot RCZ is a mild revision on perfect French cool
    1348927320

    Peugeot's 2013 RCZ coupe ­– the stylish French answer to the Audi TT – is live and in color on the Paris show floor. Peugeot, in a sign of welcome restraint, hasn't done a lot to alter the overall exterior appearance of the RCZ, a car that looks as ahead-of-its-time today as it...
