    Paris: 2013 Citroën C3 Picasso exemplifies utility, cubist charm
    1348930860

    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. This funky people-mover ...

    1348875000

    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.

    Paris: 2013 Volvo V40 R-Design leaves us feeling blue in Paris
    1348867260

    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. Even though the most powerful engine remains the same ...

    Paris: Peugeot Onyx Scooter Concept is half motorcycle, half scooter, all kinds of cool
    1348865940

    Peugeot is referring to its Onyx Concept Scooter as a two-in-one supertrike. Seems fitting.

    Paris: 2013 Audi SQ5 is the first S diesel [w/video]
    1348857600

    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 ...

    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.

    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.
