    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.

    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
