Good Luck Finding Every Button In The $200,000 Range Rover SVAutobiography Good Luck Finding Every Button In The $200,000 Range Rover SVAutobiography

The $207,900 Range Rover SVAutobiography is comfortable, of course. It’s also optimized for lazy passengers. The amount of motorization in the back seat of this thing is absolutely awesome if you’re an indolent millionaire, and probably the opposite if you’re the fourth owner trying to keep all these electronics alive.

The Saleen S1 Sounds Suspiciously Awesome The Saleen S1 Sounds Suspiciously Awesome

Saleen is well-known as the purveyor of go-fast upgrades for the Ford Mustang and the outfit that finalized the S7 supercar. In the last few years, it seems that the company has gone through difficulties. Yet this month, it came out of nowhere with a seriously cool-looking performance machine promising production and…

This Is The Best Way To Cover An Auto Show This Is The Best Way To Cover An Auto Show

The Los Angeles Auto Show was alright. It had some fun cars, mostly there to drown in the sea of crossovers and SUVs that will one day swallow the planet. Our own Jason Torchinsky found cool stuff in the basement, but our editor-in-chief Patrick George summed it up as “depressing as shit.” A never-ending cavalcade of…

Let's Walk Through Some Of Our Los Angeles Auto Show Favorites Let's Walk Through Some Of Our Los Angeles Auto Show Favorites

We saw some cool stuff at this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show. A turbocharged Mazda6. The new Corvette ZR1. The brand-new Volvo XC40. All in all, it was a pretty decent show. You should go, if you’re in town.

I Found All 19 Of The New Subaru Ascent's Cupholders I Found All 19 Of The New Subaru Ascent's Cupholders

Nineteen cupholders. Nineteen cupholders in a car that seats a maximum of eight people. That’s nearly 2.5 cupholders per occupant. Other publications, unaware of the importance of hydration, thought that perhaps this is too many cupholders. They are wrong.

The 2019 Volvo XC40 Has The Most Genius Interior I've Ever Seen The 2019 Volvo XC40 Has The Most Genius Interior I've Ever Seen

Out of everything that I saw at this year’s 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, my favorite car was actually an SUV. I know, I’m surprised, too. But it was the 2019 Volvo XC40, a car you should really be paying attention to if you like very cleverly designed interiors filled with secret nooks and crannies for all your stuff.

I'm Going To Give The 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross A Chance I'm Going To Give The 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross A Chance

Yes, it’s exactly what you think: Mitsubishi took the name of a sporty little car that was once great and stuck it on a new crossover to join all the other lumpy crossovers currently saturating our market: the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. And while I could easily slip into a blind rage over the whole ordeal, I…

Watch Me Climb All Over And Through The Bollinger B1 Electric Utility Truck

One of the most interesting and compelling vehicles at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show looks like it was styled by the same team that did the exterior design for your window air conditioner, and yet it’s somehow more exciting than nearly every other SUV at the show. It’s the Bollinger B1 all-electric utility truck, and…

You Can Have A New EV For $12,000 But You're Going To Have To Make Some Sacrifices You Can Have A New EV For $12,000 But You're Going To Have To Make Some Sacrifices

Arcimoto’s $12,000 semi-enclosed electric vehicle is not going to replace the average American’s daily driver. But for what it costs, and how far it can go, it actually might be a viable inexpensive option for adventurous people who want an EV.

Here's What Nissan's Head Star Wars Geek Told Us About All The Star Wars Stuff Here's What Nissan's Head Star Wars Geek Told Us About All The Star Wars Stuff

Even though I’m a fan of Star Wars (well, I’m really more a fan of clunky little droids and related droid culture, and Star Wars is just the delivery vehicle) I find Nissan’s aggressive Star Wars marketing tie-ins a bit baffling. I’m not the only one who’s confused, so I decided to seek out the source of it all, and…

Warner Bros And Intel Partner To Bring The Horror Show Of 'Entertainment' Inside Your Autonomous Car Warner Bros And Intel Partner To Bring The Horror Show Of 'Entertainment' Inside Your Autonomous Car

Recently, our own Stef Schrader opined that gas station TV needs to die. This is correct. I’ll argue that even worse is the video that plays on a loop when you’re in a New York City cab. Unfortunately, that may presage the future as cars become more autonomous—and the brands are eager to shove entertainment (read:…

Toyota Would Be Insane Not To Call Its New Sports Car The ‘Supra’ Toyota Would Be Insane Not To Call Its New Sports Car The ‘Supra’

In the sea of crossovers and bad branding that is this year’s LA Auto Show, we had hope of something more—a new Toyota Supra, maybe, a car for people who like cars for their soul rather than for their convenience. But, since everything is bad, we learned instead that the new Supra may not be called the “Supra.”

The Toyota FT-AC Concept Is The 'Tough Guy' Crossover Americans Would Totally Buy The Toyota FT-AC Concept Is The 'Tough Guy' Crossover Americans Would Totally Buy

America wants crossovers, and not just any crossovers. We prefer our vehicles to look “rugged” even if they totally aren’t. That’s probably why today at the Los Angeles Auto Show, Toyota showed off its “Future Toyota Adventure Concept,” filling the press release with “tough guy” terminology.

Please Describe The Sound Of The Corvette ZR1 In Seven Words Please Describe The Sound Of The Corvette ZR1 In Seven Words

The new 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is out, with a six figure price tag and a 755 horsepower supercharged V8. That engine has quite the tone to it, and it’s a little difficult to describe. At least it is for me. Maybe you’ll have an easier time.

Not At The LA Auto Show: The New Toyota Supra Not At The LA Auto Show: The New Toyota Supra

Hello. This post is here to serve notice that the new Toyota Supra, a hotly anticipated sports coupe that definitely exists (?) somewhere (???) is not present at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Explore The 2018 Jeep Wrangler With The People Who Helped Create It

Bringing the 2018 Jeep Wrangler to life was a massive project that took hundreds of people years to do. We caught up with a few of them including Jeep Design Director Mark Allen, to hear about how the new Jeep known as the “JL” came together and climb around a few to dig into details.

All The Best Weird Stuff From The Los Angeles Auto Show All The Best Weird Stuff From The Los Angeles Auto Show

Most of what you see at car shows are new cars from major automakers, or concepts for cars so new they don’t even exist yet. That’s mostly because those new, available models are ones you can actually buy, for currency, which can then be exchanged by the carmaker for goods and/or services. It’s a whole big thing,…

Expect To See The Mazda Vision Coupe's Face On Future Production Mazdas

Like most people, I love concept cars. I love looking at cars that are designed purely for the aesthetics. Cars that look the way they do because the designer just wanted certain lines to interact a certain way. Real-life distractions like safety regulations and crash test ratings and proper aerodynamics often aren’t…

Sure Hope The 2018 Mazda RT24-P Is As Fast As It Is Gorgeous Sure Hope The 2018 Mazda RT24-P Is As Fast As It Is Gorgeous

One of the most-hyped teams in motorsports right now is the return of Team Joest—the team who helped Audi completely dominate Le Mans for years. Joest is now helping Mazda’s struggling IMSA team get it together, and this is their gorgeous car for next year, the revised RT24-P. Three words: it better deliver.

We Have No One To Blame For The Manual-Less Turbo Mazda6 But Ourselves We Have No One To Blame For The Manual-Less Turbo Mazda6 But Ourselves

Today, we got the official look and specs of the new 2018 Mazda6, which will come with a torquey turbocharged engine. Awesome! What was not so awesome was the fact that the turbocharged version will not come with a manual option. Goddammit, you guys!
