Hyundai’s All-new 2016 Tucson Preview
Apr 01, 2015 - 4:53 PM - by xcel
A pretty darn good looking compact CUV both inside and out.
Wayne Gerdes - CleanMPG – April 1, 2015

2016 Hyundai Tucson – Pricing and EPA results to be revealed closer to its launch this summer.

New York, New York – Just minutes ago at the 2015 New York International Auto Show (NAIAS), Hyundai revealed its all-new 2016 Tucson CUV.

The new Tucson exterior has a lot of similarity to the entire recently redesigned Hyundai lineup with the Santa Fe, Genesis and Sonata design DNA.

With the 2016 Hyundai Tucson reveal, the all-new CUV receives a much more efficient engine lineup, the most advanced safety... [Read More]

Brown orders California's first mandatory water restrictions
Apr 01, 2015 - 2:38 PM - by ALS
'It's a different world'
Chris Megerian And Matt Stevens - LATIMES - April 1st 2015

Gov. Jerry Brown, standing on a patch of brown grass in the Sierra Nevada that is usually covered with several feet of snow at this time of year, on Wednesday announced the first mandatory water restrictions in California history.

"It's a different world," he said. "We have to act differently."

Brown was on hand Wednesday as state officials took stock of historically abysmal levels of snowpack in the Sierra Nevada amid the state's grinding drought.

Brown ordered the California Water Resources Control Board to... [Read More]

A stalwart of rental car lots the nation over gets bigger, edgier, meaner and most of all, top of its class competitive.
Wayne Gerdes - CleanMPG - Apr. 1, 2015

2016 Chevrolet Malibu – Pricing is TBA and how about a 48/45 mpgUS city/highway rating? Damn, that rocks!!!

New York, New York - We have been closely following the all-new 2016 Malibu announcements with baited breathe since the company released the NY International Auto Show teaser image a few weeks back. Here are those pre-release details:

Auto Show Comes To NY With Some Exciting New Vehicles

It's Auto Show Season Again In The Big Apple!
Chris Bernius - CleanMPG - April 1, 2015

It's that time of year again, although the weather hasn't gotten that message yet. Leaving home at 5am, I was scraping ice from the car windows as the temperature had fallen below freezing overnight. But it is April, with March having gone out like a lion just as it arrived. And so the New York International Auto Show goes on, with or without flowers budding in the gardens of area homes.

This year, there are a few models slated to arrive that may be of interest to readers here, listed in the order of the press conference schedule:
- The upcoming 2016 Chevy Malibu with a hybrid drivetrain that is developed from the Volt... [Read More]

Finally the 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid!

Wonderful 2.5L Camry Hybrid drivetrain and all the utility you could ever want.
Wayne Gerdes - CleanMPG - Mar. 26, 2015

2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid – Just a peek... For now.

This morning Toyota finally announced the RAV4 Hybrid that it will show at this years New York International Auto Show on April 2nd.

It should have the same lineage as the very intriguing 2015 Lexus NX 300h. Meaning a modern interior and appointments and a little more edgy exterior design.

I will assume an AWD variant will be available or will be soon after the launch of the FWD model?

I also expect to see the Avalon/HiHy/NXh Qi built... [Read More]

Would You Buy the $55,000 Hayabusa Powered Tanom Motors Invader?
Mar 26, 2015 - 10:51 AM - by ALS
Steering, gas, brake and clutch are likes a normal car's layout, and the shifting is available as a paddle or center lever.

William Connor - - March 26, 2015

Forget the boring modern closed cockpit car and the snowmobile styling of the Spyder. The Tanom TC-3 packs a 197 hp Hayabusa motor, carbon fiber with a sequential shifter, and a huge rear tire that flat rips it.

That's prototype number 1 you see above. It has an open cabin that gives you a view of the front wheels articulating over road imperfections. It also has steering you haven't experienced since running a go-kart, and that... [Read More]

2016 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid – Pricing TBA and at least a 45 mpg combined rating… Scheduled for the global reveal in NY on April 1.

A complete redesign of the Malibu for 2016 despite being a complete redesign for the 2013 MY. The company added a much needed 4 inches of wheelbase which will cure that “small kids only” backseat!!! The profile looks more modern... [Read More]

Just a tease but let us hope it incorporates the Camry Hybrids 2.5L Hybrid drivetrain this time around.
Wayne Gerdes - CleanMPG - Mar. 24, 2015

The 2016 Lexus RX. A little of it anyway.

Ford's new car will force you to obey the speed limit
Mar 24, 2015 - 2:16 PM - by ALS
A camera mounted on the windshield scans the road signs on the sides of the highway

Daniel Cooper - ENGADGET - March 24, 2015

Much as we'd like to emulate our NASCAR heroes, breaking the speed limit often comes at a price. Ford is hoping to prevent accidents and speeding tickets by introducing cars that can see what the speed limit is and preventing heavy-footed motorists from driving any faster. Ford's Intelligent Speed Limiter tech will first appear on the new Ford S-Max that's launching in Europe that could just change the way that we drive.
