Volkswagen appears to be preparing to introduce a new crossover concept at the 2015 North American International Auto Show next month. If statements from several sources close to the German automaker are found to be true it would point to what could be an expansion of an upcoming lineup of CUVs from VW. The aim seems to be to give VW a larger share of the growing CUV segment while also reversing souring sales numbers here in the U.S. market.

Every car nut loves a hot-hatch. They handle like a sports car, have plenty of power, yet they still offer all the practicality found in a normal hatchback.

The Los Angeles Auto Show is one of the premier events of the year, and we blogged about it a few weeks ago. Now the show is upon us, and there are some amazing vehicles being unveiled.
Following the prior release of several veiled teaser images, Scion has officially taken the shroud of secrecy off its L.A.-bound iM concept which will make its formal debut at the 2014 L.A. Auto Show next week. The concept should a compelling preview of what could be a replacement for the ill-fated and equally ill-conceived Scion XD hatchback (which was, in turn, a replacement for the equally mediocre and unsuccessful Scion xA).
Back in 2002, Mercedes relaunched the Maybach brand to compete with Rolls Royce and Bentley at the top of the market. The ultra-lux brand quickly found favor with Asian moguls and American rappers, but high production costs and low volume led to its demise in 2012. Mercedes is hoping that the third time will be the charm, however, as they once again resurrect the Maybach name for a bespoke version of the new S-Class. So break out those gold chains and get ready for the reeeeeeeemix!

But they’ve finally decided to add another wagon to their U.S. lineup, and it can even go soft-roading! So say hello to the all-new 2015 Volvo V60 Cross Country…
The words "wow" and "holy crap", have never been used to describe a Toyota Camry. This silently-snooty transportation device has mastered mediocrity and elevated adequacy to an art form. They sell like hotcakes because everybodyknows that you “can’t go wrong with a Camry”. But Toyota’s CEO recently decreed that forthcoming cars bearing his family name, be injected with some excitement. And this 2015 Toyota Camry has just annihilated our perception of the most boring car on earth.
