    1354215600

    Sure, the new Fiesta ST and 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine took the majority of 2014 Fiesta-related headlines, but that doesn't mean the rest of the range was left untouched. As you can see, styling has been updated, most notably up front, where a new fascia brings the pint-size hatch in line with the ...

    1354214400

    Hyundai (and sister company Kia) found itself in a bit of hot water recently over false fuel economy estimates on the window stickers of its cars. To remedy this, the automakers will be compensating some 900,000 owners based on their vehicles' odometer readings, and the companies will add an ...

    Los Angeles: 2014 Jaguar XFR-S is the power and the fury
    1354208280

    If there's something wrong about a sedan with a 550-horsepower supercharged V8, we don't want to hear about it. Instead, we want to marvel at the car in person, which is fortuitous because Jaguar has officially unveiled the 2014 XFR-S at the 2012 LA Auto Show. That blown 5.0-liter V8 dishes up a ...

    We've said it a billion times now, but man, Kias are sure looking good these days. And under the lights of the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show, we're getting our first look at the next chapter in the Korean brand's quest for beauty, the 2014 Forte sedan. We've given it a good once-over in the flesh, ...

    Los Angeles: New-look 2014 Kia Sorento takes the stage in Los Angeles
    1354154400

    The 2014 Kia Sorento may have a new face, but the Korean company assures us that the revisions to the model are far more than skin deep. Inside and out, from the oily bits to the touch points, this Sorento has been fussed over to be a better crossover than ever before. Leading off the changes is ...

    Los Angeles: 2013 Fiat 500e looks loud, runs quietly
    1354153200

    Somebody wanted it, so we all got it – the Fiat 500e, the electric city car packed with enough Earth-saving tech that CEO Sergio Marchionne quipped (admittedly, early last year) that each one built will cost Fiat $10,000. The good news is that it not only comes with tons of EV-only gadgets ...

    Los Angeles: Volkswagen confirms three-row utility for Detroit, no Routan replacement in sight
    1354152060

    At a small media roundtable session with journalists at the Los Angeles Auto Show today, Klaus Bischoff, Volkswagen's head of global design, confirmed that VW's much-rumored three-row utility vehicle will be "most hopefully" revealed at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. The vehicle is expected to be ...

    Los Angeles: 2014 Fiat 500L Trekking takes the hatchback into the big leagues
    1354151400

    Didn't think it was possible to pull and pry at the diminutive Fiat 500 with enough gumption to make the Italian hatchback qualify as a large car (according to the EPA, at least)? Witness the Fiat 500L Trekking, seen above. It's a full 26-inches longer than the regular 500, and it's grown ...

    Los Angeles: 2014 Fiat 500L adds size, refinement and toys to 500 lineup
    1354150800

    Fiat is taking the lead from Mini and expanding its lineup of mini-me runabouts. The Italian automaker has done the 500 every which way, including convertible and performance models and now even electrified versions. Following this expansion comes the first actual growth in size; the 2014 Fiat ...

    Los Angeles: Audi torques the floor in LA with four new TDI oil burners
    1354149600

    The diesels are coming. Well, one diesel engine sitting pretty under the shapely hoods of five Audi models: the A6, A7 and A8 sedans along with the Q5 crossover are joining the already available Q7, each powered by a 3.0-liter TDI engine offering up 240 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque. ...

    Los Angeles: 2013 Volkswagen CC R-Line looks to recapture some flash
    1354148460

    Some critics have suggested that the Volkswagen CC may have lost some of its visual verve following its 2012 facelift, the original CC's organic "four-door coupe" form having been made a bit more ordinary with version 2.0. This Volkswagen still has plenty of charm, of course, and those looking ...

    Los Angeles: 2013 Fiat 500c Abarth takes its top off with a quickness
    1354147260

    What a pleasant little piece of plug-and-play. Putting the Fiat 500c's retractable roof on the hot 500 Abarth was pretty much a no-brainer, and hey, we certainly aren't complaining. Folding the soft top back on the little hatchback will only allow us to better hear that awesome exhaust note while ...

    1354146000

    This is the BMW i3 Coupe Concept, a sharpened take on all of the acronymous innovations wrought by four-door BMW i3 Concept: "stream flow" design wrapping its LifeDrive architecture and Life Module cabin. Presenting an evolved future beyond the already-futuristic four-door i3 Concept, the i3 ...

    Los Angeles: 2013 Chrysler Town and Country S adds a dash of cool to your schoolhouse run
    1354144860

    Bringing the Chrysler "S" treatment to the Town and Country minivan does not – let us be clear – make the thing any more formidable to drive. But, kicking in the cool factor for its bread-and-butter grocery-getter might just convince a few more moms and dads to pull the trigger on ...

    On the heels of its well-received Boxster drop-top, Porsche rolled out its all-new third-generation Cayman coupe at the Los Angeles Auto Show today.

    Los Angeles: 2014 Acura RLX replaces SH-AWD with P-AWS
    1354141140

    After teasing us with the thinly veiled concept earlier this year, Acura has officially taken the wraps off its all-new flagship sedan, the 2014 Acura RLX. Aside from its huge step forward in terms of styling and luxury, the new RLX could very well be the most advanced Acura model ever. While ...

    Los Angeles: 2014 Nissan GT-R raises the stakes by just a few pennies
    1354139940

    It is fitting to greet the 2014 Nissan GT-R the same way Captain Jack Sparrow greeted the Kraken in Pirates of the Caribbean: "'Allo, beastie." It's a matter of very minor tune-up for the monster, though, the 2014 GT-R moving things on by just couple of degrees or so. Performance responsiveness ...

    Los Angeles: The 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series proves that less is more
    1354138860

    As we learned some time ago, the new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series is one bad boy. The car boasts 622 total horsepower, a top speed of 196 miles per hour with 0-60 coming up in 3.5 seconds, and has shed 154 pounds when compared with the "base" SLS AMG.
