    1348781460

    Ssangyong has shown up at the 2012 Paris Motor Show with an extended-range hybrid version of its XIV 2 Coupe showcar. Called the e-XIV Concept, it pairs a 1.0-liter two-cylinder gasoline engine with a 107-horsepower electric motor and a 16-kWh lithium-ion battery to give the vehicle a...

    Paris: Nissan Terra Concept takes zero emissions off road [w/video]
    1348779420

    Nissan already has the Xterra, but from the looks of it, its new Paris Motor Show concept vehicle could be called the eTerra. In reality, Nissan's new off-road-ready, fuel cell concept is known simply as the Terra Concept, and while it sounds like there are no plans to build such a vehicle just...

    Paris: 2013 Honda CR-Z is a greener shade of purple
    1348778340

    Honda has failed to set the world on fire with its seemingly sporty hybrid coupe, but it's not entirely for lack of effort. And for 2013, the Japanese automaker is refining its CR-Z with a host of updates designed to pin its dynamics a bit more on the side of sporty performance. And, as you can...

    Paris: 2013 Mini Paceman is a good answer to a question nobody asked
    1348777260

    Look, much as we like the Mini Countryman – we did spend a year with one, after all – we find it hard to believe that people are clamoring for a less-functional version of it. That said, we had our doubts about the four-door Countryman, and it turned out to be a pretty sweet, if...

    Paris: BMW Concept Active Tourer breaks with tradition, goes front-wheel drive [w/video]
    1348774260

    We've seen the leaked photos and finally the web reveal before the Paris Motor Show, but now the BMW Concept Active Tourer is here, in all its diminutive, plug-in glory. BMW is billing its two-box Concept Active Tourer as a study in both design and powertrain. With an upright driving position...

    Paris: 2013 Mini John Cooper Works GP marks the return of something awesome
    1348772340

    For the past six years, members of the Autoblog team have been dreaming of a return of the Mini John Cooper Works GP kit. We fell head-over-heels in love with the two-seat hot hatch when it launched in limited production in 2006, and we're happy to say that our little baby is back. Feast your...

    Paris: McLaren P1 is the nearly real supercar of our drive-to-race dreams
    1348768800

    Destined to be one of the splashier events of the 2012 Paris Motor Show, the unveiling of McLaren's newest supercar, and successor to the intimidating F1 legend, went off beautifully today. Despite being a design exercise, the P1 concept here in Paris clearly paves the path forward for...

    Paris: Smart Forstars Concept is a rolling drive-in movie theater in orange
    1348767000

    Smart tells us that its new Forstars Concept is a Sports Utility Coupé. We're pretty sure that's a misnomer. After all, the electric powertrain, while supremely efficient, isn't a powerhouse. Plus, with room for just two occupants and a golf bag plus toiletries, utility doesn't really...

    Paris: 2014 Ford Transit Connect adds form to function [w/video]
    1348765200

    Much as we like the current Ford Transit Connect, "sexy" is not an adjective we'd use to describe it. And while this new 2014 model appears a bit bulgier in person than the original stock photos led us to believe, it's no doubt a wholly more stylish van than the vehicle it replaces. ...

    Paris: Volkswagen GTI Concept is ready to carry the hot hatch torch
    1348763460

    If you're looking for thinly veiled production models from the 2012 Paris Motor Show, Volkswagen has you covered. The German automaker showed off its GTI Concept alongside a smattering of other Golf variants. A prototype in name only, the concept gives us a glimpse of what the MkVII GTI will...

    Paris: Porsche Sport Turismo Concept introduces Panamera to pulchritude and plugging in [w/video]
    1348761600

    When we heard that Porsche would be bringing a Panamera wagon concept to Paris, reaction was just as scattered as people's reaction to the Panamera itself; some actually wondering if the Panamera isn't already a wagon, others deciding, to put it kindly, that the back end of Porsche's five-door...

    Paris: Toyota GT86 TRD boasts added performance gear, industry-first door stabilizer
    1348759860

    We haven't stopped swooning over the Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ twins and their corner-carving magic. For those overseas who enjoy the rear-drive coupe under the Toyota name as the GT86, things just got a little corner-carve-ier. This GT86 TRD is everyone's favorite rear-drive, boxer-engined Toyota,...

    Paris: Audi RS5 Cabriolet debuts in Paris, confirmed for U.S. in Q1 2013
    1348757880

    We would never kick a 450-horsepower convertible out of bed, especially one as pretty as the 2013 Audi RS5 Cabriolet. We'll admit, the chrome wheels aren't really doing it for us – we much prefer the standard alloys – but nevertheless, there's a lot to like about this topless Audi. ...

    Paris: Opel Adam is the little hatch to begin a big turnaround
    1348756140

    Opel's bottom line suffers from a medical condition called "hemorrhaging" and investment bank Morgan Stanley isn't alone in believing that General Motors should let the German brand go. But they haven't seen the Opel Adam. The diminutive hatch that can come off as a little bulbous up front and...

    Paris: Lexus LF-CC Concept is a tidy, welcome look into brand's future [w/video]
    1348754400

    Wider and lower than it appears in the press photos, the Lexus LF-CC concept is an exceptionally crisp evolution of Lexus' L-Finesse design language – in fact, once away from the oversized spindle grille, just following the lines of the coupe leads one to think of origami. The coupe takes...

    Paris: Audi Crosslane Coupe Concept is bursting with interesting tech
    1348750740

    Audi has lifted the sheet on its newest concept car at the Paris Motor Show, a vehicle called the Crosslane Coupe Concept that hits just about every concept car meme that we know of. The angular Audi is, at once a coupe, a convertible and a crossover; it is a two-seater and a 2+2, it has a...

    Paris: 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo gets a new smile and restyled rear
    1348748940

    Lamborghini didn't bring the Gallardo Edizione Tecnica to the Paris Motor Show, intending for us to instead focus on the cosmetic changes made to the 2013 Gallardo LP560-4 Coupe and Spyder. We have to go back to a line we've had the pleasure of not using in a while: the revisions look better in...

    Paris: MkVII Volkswagen Golf shows off its slimmer bod
    1348747260

    When we first saw the seventh-generation Volkswagen Golf in the manufacturer-provided stock photos, we were a little let down. In a word, it looked... droopy. But now that we've seen Volkswagen's new global hatch in person, we have to say, it's a handsome little thing. Perhaps the most...

    Paris: 2013 Ford Fiesta gets facelifted, EcoBoosted
    1348741740

    Ford pulled back the curtain on the 2013 Cygnet Fiesta at this year's Paris Motor Show, fresh from the machine's debut in Amsterdam. Strutting a healthy dose of the company's new design language, the five-door packs a 1.0-liter EcoBoost three-cylinder engine good for 99 horsepower and, according...
