    Paris: Venturi America is still awesome, still not coming to the U.S. [w/videos]
    1348855260

    It's been two years since we first met the Venturi America on this very Paris Motor Show floor, and we're still in love with the idea of an electric car that is as capable on the street as it is on the trail. Venturi Automobiles says it is only making 100 of these door-less electric enduro cars,...

    1348854000

    Mercedes-Benz showed off a number of alternative fuel B-Class models at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, including the B200 Natural Gas Drive and this machine, the B-Class Electric Drive. Using a 100-kilowatt (134-horsepower) electric motor, the hatch can whir to a top speed of 93 miles per hour and...

    Paris: 2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata still brings a smile to our faces
    1348851600

    Believe it or not, despite the fact that Mazda first unveiled its refreshed 2013 MX-5 Miata in July of this year, the 2012 Paris Motor Show in late September is the first time we've run across the iconic sports car in the metal. And so we wasted no time in filling our DSLRs with a full spate of...

    Paris: 2013 Chevrolet Trax still won't cross over to U.S. [w/video]
    1348849680

    Though the runabout-crossover known as the Chevrolet Trax debuted in the interwebs in May, Paris was our first opportunity to see for ourselves the CUV that the U.S. will not get. Riding on the same platform that underpins the Buick Encore and derived from the Sonic subcompact, the Trax is...

    Paris: Peugeot RCZ R Concept is an unsubtle hint at performance coupe to come
    1348847880

    Say one thing for Peugeot at its home Paris Motor Show this season: the company knows how to run with a theme. Peugeot, some might argue, stole the 2012 show with its Onyx supercar concept; that car has an Onyx Scooter Concept that matches it in livery (if not performance). But, perhaps the most...

    Paris: 2013 Nissan Juke Nismo closer to coming to America
    1348846200

    First shown as a concept at the Tokyo Motor Show and first unveiled in production trim at this year's 24 Hours of Le Mans, the 2013 Nissan Juke Nismo has just had its first in-person meeting with the Autoblog team at the Paris Motor Show. While not quite as extreme as its Juke R brother –...

    Paris: 2013 Kia Carens is a stylish Rondo redux
    1348844340

    Hey, remember the Rondo? The tall Kia hatchback never really caught on here in the United States, but in Europe – where all sorts of funky five-doors flourish – the Rondo (sorry, Carens) has enjoyed respectable success. At least, enough that Kia has completely redesigned its...

    Paris: Peugeot's Onyx hybrid supercar may be the belle of the Parisian ball [w/video]
    1348842600

    Though the French automaker is clearly on the top of its game with all of its offerings for the 2012 Paris Motor Show, Peugeot's Onyx concept is its definitive highlight. A masterpiece in matte black paint, Onyx's most striking features are the two huge swathes of polished copper that adorn...

    Paris: Ferrari's Enzo successor laid bare with carbon fiber chassis display
    1348838940

    Ferrari is quick to point out that while output across its lineup has jumped roughly 100 horsepower in the last four years, fuel consumption and emissions are down nearly 30 percent. Such gains in efficiency are made through a holistic approach, including engine tuning, aerodynamics, tires, and...

    Paris: PPNMC NOAO is a poorly named but still awesome electric race car [w/video]
    1348837080

    It reportedly took Pole Performance Nevers Magny-Cours just six months to develop this electric race car before it set an official record on the Grand Prix track at the Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours in France. Known as the NOAO, which is supposedly pronounced "Know How," this car boasts twin...

    Paris: 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 is a bolt of all-wheel-drive blue
    1348833720

    The Porsche 911 Carrera 4 and Carrera 4S, noted by the wider rear end and illuminated crossbar element between the taillamps, bring Porsche Traction Management to the 911 line in coupe and convertible forms. Haunches spread 22 millimeters further across tires that are ten millimeters wider than...

    Paris: Espera Sbarro Eight Concept is the best student project car in history
    1348831800

    Here's a showstopper. Tucked away in a corner of the Fourth Pavilion here at the 2012 Paris Motor Show was this carbon fiber hot rod from the Espera Sbarro Montbéliard School of Design. Known simply as the Eight, cribbed from the Maserati-sourced V8 engine, this machine was reportedly...

    Paris: 2013 Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake is bringing sexy-functional back
    1348828140

    While it might seem like the Mercedes-Bens CLS Shooting Brake was revealed a long time ago, truth is, this is our first time seeing the swoopy four-door coupe-gone-wagon on the auto show circuit. Ever since we first laid eyes on the shooting brake concept at the 2010 Beijing Motor Show, we've...

    Paris: 2013 Dacia Sandero don't need no stinking alloys
    1348826520

    The UK-bound Dacia Sandero made an appearance at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. With new exterior styling, a revised cabin and a total of four engine options, the Sandero offers buyers a low buck runabout. The five-door carries an MSRP of €7,900 and may be had in either gasoline or diesel...

    Paris: Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Electric Drive offers guilt-free, zero-emission supercar fun... for $537K
    1348822740

    The folks at Mercedes-Benz must have a guilty conscience when it comes to the SLS AMG supercar. Why else would the German automaker follow up the snarling V8-powered debut of the modern gullwing with the SLS AMG E-Cell, and now the SLS AMG Coupe Electric Drive? While the retina-searing E-Cell...

    Paris: 2013 Ford Mondeo, a Fusion by any other name, looks sweet
    1348821000

    Ford may have spilled the beans about its 2013 Mondeo in Amsterdam a few weeks ago, but the Blue Oval stand here at the Paris Motor Show is the first place that we've gotten to see the sedan in the metal. The European sibling of our Ford Fusion looks trim, angular and attractive in its auto show...

    Paris: Mitsubishi ASX is French for Outlander Sport
    1348817520

    Mitsubishi has revealed the Euro-version of the same Outlander Sport model that debuted with updates earlier this year at the New York Auto Show. No, the French do not call it the Royale Sport (with cheese), but rather the ASX. The crossover has received a range of aesthetic and engineering...

    Paris: Seat Leon shows its angular assets
    1348815600

    The third-generation Seat Leon has made its debut in Paris, confirming for the assembled masses that its live form is just as fetching as the studio shots we've already seen. Seat tipped its hand on the new Leon earlier this summer, so we've already reported on most of the critical details....

    Paris: 2013 BMW M135i xDrive adds all-wheel drive to performance hatchback platform
    1348801020

    The new-for-2013 BMW 1 Series three-door is a wonderful thing in any of the configurations that we don't get to buy here in the U.S. (We know, we're like a broken record with this "forbidden fruit" bit these days, but the fly-away auto shows really bring it out of us.) Of course, the best of all...

    Paris: 2013 Hyundai i30 3-Door is a tidy Elantra GT
    1348799340

    Here in the United States, the Hyundai i30 is better known as the Elantra GT. And while the five-door version that we get is nearly identical to the model sold in Europe (save some specific suspension tuning), this new three-door variant will be an Old Country-only affair. Despite the fact...
