72Sergio Marchionne calls VW execs 'reprehensible,' singles out Piech

Fiat chairman Sergio Marchionne said Friday he will keep his title of President of the European Automotive Manufacturers Association [ACEA], a day after he excoriated Volkswagen executives for calling for his resignation and suggesting in public that Fiat would not survive the economic recession in Europe without a government rescue.

Add2013 Land Rover Range Rover

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 more cargo room so it can carry around the haul of commentary its looks have gathered, such as the polarizing headlight and taillights reminiscent of a Ford Explorer, the three-slat vent motif on the fro

5Peugeot 2008 Concept raises the roof for B-segment CUVs

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.

232013 Chevrolet Spark gets refreshed for Europe

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 nip/tuck here at the 2012 Paris Motor Show.

71Toyota debuts 2013 Verso with a new nose and high hopes

After the mini-people mover's introduction in 2010, the 2013 Toyota Verso signals a significant mid-cycle refresh for the model.

242013 Audi S3 is hot-hatch forbidden fruit par excellence

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.

112013 Citroën C3 Picasso exemplifies utility, cubist charm

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.

182013 Peugeot RCZ is a mild revision on perfect French cool

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 did when it came to market three years ago.

23We've obsessively covered the 2012 Paris Motor Show

Our entire coverage team for the 2012 Paris Motor Show is either sleeping back at their hotel right now or on a red-eye flight back to the U.S., and those of us supporting them stateside are about ready to close the book on this big Parisian show.

7Peugeot 208 Type R5 rally car looks fast sitting still

Last week, we were able to bring you all of the details regarding Peugeot's new 208 Type R5 rally car, but there was only a shadowy teaser image with which to illustrate the pre-production rally titan.

352013 Kia Pro_cee'd three-door proceeds to impress [w/video]

Sexy as MPVs are, the new Carens wasn't the only world premiere happening on the Kia stand at today's Paris Motor Show. Here, we see the new three-door Pro_cee'd hatchback – a sharp-looking car that shares many of its underpinnings with the Hyundai i30 three-door that also took the stage at the Paris expo.

52013 Citroën DS3 Cabrio shows trick folding top to the world

Citroën's DS3 line has been a huge success in its home market of France ever since the car was launched in 2009. Sitting in the fat-middle part of the luxury category, it only makes sense that a convertible variant for the DS3 pop up sooner or later – and later is the Paris Motor Show.

33Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is world's first production plug-in hybrid CUV [w/video]

Though Mitsubishi first showed us the form of its 2013 Outlander in Geneva a while back, the company saved its plug-in hybrid crossover for this week's Paris Motor Show soiree.

13Renault Clio is the bold new face of France's diamond brand

Check out the new Renault Clio, which has just been revealed at the Paris Motor Show. If you like what you see, then chances you are going to like future Renault models. Along with introducing the fourth-generation Clio, Renault also says that this new styling will be the new face of the French automaker's future products.

82013 Volvo V40 R-Design leaves us feeling blue in Paris

We were more than a little bummed when Volvo proclaimed it didn't intend to bless the United States with its V40 hatchback/wagon. We're even more bummed now that there's this newly debuted R Design model at the Paris Motor Show.

7Peugeot Onyx Scooter Concept is half motorcycle, half scooter, all kinds of cool

Peugeot is referring to its Onyx Concept Scooter as a two-in-one supertrike. Seems fitting. Not only can this innovative hybrid three-wheeler hit a top speed of 93 miles per hour, its 400cc engine and electric motor combination offers up 60 horsepower (45 kilowatts) and 42 pound-feet of torque, which should be plenty of gumption for quick getaways from traffic.

15Lamborghini developing Urus while still awaiting green light

While much of the focus for Lamborghini at the Paris Motor Show was on its new strategy for the Gallardo line using styling cues to differentiate the rear-wheel-drive, all-wheel-drive and Superleggera models, the Italian automaker is continuing development of its Urus SUV, even though it has not yet gotten final approval yet.

28BMW debuts M Performance add-ons for 3 Series

The next-generation M3 is indeed coming, but if you simply can't wait for the hardcore M model, BMW will now sell you new M Performance add-ons for the 3 Series sedan, a whole host of which have been fitted to one of the show cars here in Paris. And don't worry – these optional extras aren't all show and no go.

152013 Fiat 500 Abarth Fuori Serie puts customization program on display

Customization programs are nothing new in the auto industry. For a fee, they offer a chance to work directly with the manufacturer to create a one-of-a-kind vehicle for the customer. These programs, however, are usually offered by makers of the most exotic, expensive and exclusive vehicles, like Ferrari, Rolls-Royce and Porsche. It's not often that a manufacturer of, shall we say, a more humble stature, offers this type of vehicle personalization. Nevertheless, that's exactly what Fiat is doing

132013 Audi SQ5 is the first S diesel [w/video]

Audi is a company synonymous with diesel performance. Its efforts at the 24 Hours of Le Mans have repeatedly proven what can be accomplished with a healthy oil-burner at your command, but until now, buyers were unable to pick up spots-oriented models with a TDI badge. That's changed with the debut of the SQ5 TDI at the 2012 Paris Motor Show.

10Venturi America is still awesome, still not coming to the U.S. [w/videos]

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, but despite its name, none of them are to be sold in the U.S.
