2019 Audi A8 first driv...

Audi debuted its new, 2019 A8 flagship more than a year ago at its Audi Summit in Barcelona. The car arrives in U.S. showrooms in the next couple weeks, with several new technologies debuting. More about those shortly. Audi’s Mercedes-Benz S-Class and BMW 7-Series-fighter is a wee...

2019 Honda Insight esse...

What is it: The 2019 Honda Insight is the company’s 51-city-mpg runabout that is both decent to look at and decent to drive. That might not sound like much, but with electric/hybrid/plug-in technology as it feels today, at least for enthusiasts, it is. And darn it if this whole sportback...

BMW is joining the three-row fray next March with the 2019 X7 xDrive40i and xDrive50i. Both X7 trims will offer seating for six or seven, rear-seat entertainment for long family trips and the ability to preorder online. That preorder feature is new for the company. The X7 will be built...

Ford snagged “Breaking Bad” impresario Bryan Cranston for its latest “here’s our future” commercial. In the mix of flashing graphics, Steve Jobs-like presentations, Rangers jumping and old Mustang Bullitts driving, there’s a quick cut of what looks...

The Mission E Cross Turismo concept that debuted at the Geneva auto show this spring will join the Porsche Taycan in the near future — the automaker has just approved the model for production. The small crossover — more of a station wagon — looked like it got the Audi...

Supercar makers have a habit of saying the latest million-mph hybrid flamethrower “can be driven all year! It has a soft suspension mode and a nose lift,” they say. That may be technically true in some cases, but in most, it’s more supercar hyperbole. This Mustang, though, might be the...

Here’s how Volksw...

Volkswagen intends to re-assert itself as builder of the people’s car, now with electric propulsion, so it’s probably fitting that the company plans to do so with rear-drive, rear-motor vehicles — just like the original Beetle. In the wake of Dieselgate, and maybe partly because of...
