    Report: Audi Quattro concept production hopes still alive, could be more radical
    1417028400

    Remember the gestation period of the Lexus LFA, the one that, in automotive time, took so long that its origins could have been carbon dated? We feel like it's déja vu all over again, as Yogi Berra would have said, this time featuring the Audi Quattro and Audi Sport Quattro. It was 2010 ...

    Los Angeles: Editors' Choice: Top Five 2014 LA Auto Show Debuts
    1416942000

    In Which We Pick Our Favourites From Los Angeles It's often easy to jump to conclusions about what will absolutely steal the show at an automotive expo. Something ultra-sexy, fast, and exotic? Safe bet. A brown, Swedish shooting brake? Sounds like a winner to us. But sometimes, when the votes are ...

    1416754800

    Los Angeles: Toyota Mirai offers promising tech, unfortunate looks
    1416583800

    Is there some rule that all cutting-edge, ultra-efficient or emissions-free vehicles need to look, uh, weird? No? Then would anyone care to explain the Toyota Mirai, a vehicle that for all it's hugely, wildly promising technology, will forever be pigeonholed based on its odd styling? Looks ...

    Los Angeles: Mini forgets to bring car to LA, shows Citysurfer concept scooter
    1416582000

    See that red thing? It's the Mini Citysurfer Concept. It is not, in case you were wondering, an automobile. Yet despite this apparent shortcoming, Mini has placed it on a plinth at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. The electric scooter weighs in at 18 kilograms (40 pounds), can hit 25 km/h (15 ...

    Los Angeles: 2015 Porsche 911 GTS widens your rear-engined choices
    1416527880

    "Porsche needs to offer more versions of the 911" is not a phrase you'll hear uttered often. Not with 15 versions already in the catalogue. But with the opening of this year's LA Auto Show, Porsche has introduced four more to bring the total up to nineteen variants. And more are no doubt on the ...

    Official: 2015 Toyota Prius C is still colourful, still gets 4.4L/100km
    1416525300

    Few vehicles can match the affordable fuel economy of the $19,000, 53-mile-per-gallon Toyota Prius C, and that fact isn't likely to change for 2015, as the Japanese company has issued a moderate refresh of its sub-compact hybrid. As mid-cycle refreshes go, this is a pretty standard affair, with ...

    Official: 2016 Acura ILX, for better or worse
    1416519000

    Restyled Compact Goes 2.4L-Only, Loses 6-Speed Manual, Adds 8-Speed DCT

    Unfortunately, the slick-shifting six-speed manual transmission has been discontinued. "It's just a badge-engineered Honda Civic." This (uninformed) criticism has been leveled at the Acura ILX since the premium compact ...

    Los Angeles: 2015 Volvo V60 Cross Country rides in tall and rugged
    1416502740

    Long before Volvo got into the crossover-utility game with the XC90 and XC60, it was making ruggedized all-wheel-drive wagons. In fact it's been doing so longer than Audi has, and almost as long as Subaru. And now it's returned to that tradition with the debut of its new V60 Cross Country on the ...
