Letter From The UK: Are We Ready For Autonomous Cars?

3 days agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

As a motoring writer of long-standing and an old-school petrol-head through to my bones, I have to admit to being ambivalent about autonomous cars. What can you expect from a guy who still has AC/DC compact discs in the car? I’ve tried, really I have; I have listened to knowledgeable people and nodded sagely as […]

Unexpected Car Shows Are Always Worth Visiting

6 days agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

For me it has turned into an immutable fact that you should always, always head to a car show, especially if you are in a strange setting or you didn’t know about the car show in advance. About a month back, I found myself in just such a time and place, when an unexpected car […]

last weekVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

It’s always exciting when the new 2018 models arrive for our testing. It’s even better when a new sporty model is available to be driven before it arrives in showrooms. This new TLX is more dynamic, especially with the A-Spec trim we tested this week. The A-Spec gets a sport-tuned suspension and its own unique styling […]

The Project ONE Show Car: Mercedes-AMG Drops The Big One

last weekVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

“Well it’s about time,” I said to myself when this one landed on my desk. For all of Mercedes-Benz’s vaunted and well-deserved engineering acumen, they are, in a lot of ways, a very conservative company. Mercedes-Benz is all about engineering. Always have been, always will be. If you could boil down the company to three […]

Future-Type Concept: Jaguar Completely Lost Their Mind

last weekVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

Concept cars are supposed to be fun and interesting. When they’re serious, they’re near-production cars that show us what to expect in dealer showrooms before long. Or they can be trial balloons to test public reactions to new styling ideas or technological innovations. The bulk of them are just there to be cool. Something flashy […]

The morning commute and the afternoon grind. When bumper to bumper traffic creates gridlock for miles, it can be a recipe for disaster. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, road rage comprises of following too closely, excessive speeding, and weaving through traffic among other irresponsible actions. “The operation of a motor vehicle in […]

2018 Nissan Armada: Why Spend A Little When You Can Spend A Lot?

last weekVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

Look, the only way I’ve ever been able to wrap my head around the Nissan Armada is by chalking it up to me-too-ism. Everyone or most everyone who makes SUVs also has some range-topping, road-behemoth just this side of a Canyonero, so I guess Nissan had to respond. I was willing to accept that, and […]

New Study: Interest Growing For Autonomous Cars, Safety Still Top Concern

last weekVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

The automobile is one of the greatest identifying characteristics of American culture. When we think about how the automobile changed our lives in the United States, it’s nearly endless.

Aventador S Roadster: The New, Top Chop Lambo

2 weeks agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

The new Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster is here, but it is not really a roadster, nor is it a convertible. It’s really a targa version of the Aventador, but I’m not going to quibble about that and start getting all pedantic about correct automotive terminology. With a car like the Aventador S Roadster, who cares about […]

Bentley Continental GT: It’s Not A Sports Car, But It’s Still Fast

2 weeks agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

This is the all-new Bentley Continental GT. It is many things, but one thing it is definitely not, is a sports car. Yes, it is very fast. Yes, it can cover huge amounts of ground at high speed. Yes, it has NASA levels of technology packed within. But, this thing weighs more than a Sherman […]

Three Key Consumer Considerations With New Auto Technology

2 weeks agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

Our taste for new innovations have compressed the adoption cycle and introduced fresh technology into a variety of industries, including automotive.

Letter From The UK: Autonomous Britain

2 weeks agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

That thunderous noise you hear is the future rushing towards us like an out-of-control freight train. On board is the usual motley collection of intolerance, crime, war, pestilence, regret, love, an awakening Eco-consciousness, and automotive autonomy. In the UK, as elsewhere probably, when politicians spy a bandwagon they will leap on it with alacrity. Autonomous […]

Volvo XC40 Targets Urban Dwellers, City Commuters

2 weeks agoVehicles / Cars : AutomoBlog

Volvo’s upcoming new SUV, the XC40, aims at staying in the premium segment while it heads downward, size-wise. SUVs, for all their functionality and popularity, have some hitches in their armor, especially when it comes to in-city usage. Size is obviously what I’m talking about here. Have you ever seen a Hummer in a crowded, […]
