Heck, it was even on the shortlist for me when I was 21 years old. The current-generation 2017 Suzuki Swift has received a complete makeover, which has seen the cuteness of the […]

Buying a new car is an exciting time, but waiting is the hardest part. While most American buyers will take delivery directly from dealer inventory, that's not the case in Europe. To help placate its customers in Germany, Mercedes-Benz is letting customers make that waiting time a little more bearable with its new "Joyful Anticipation" program...
Utility vehicles have been a hot ticket personal transport item for some time, much to the delight of OEMs and their shareholders.

India is often touted as the next China but apart from a similar population, currently at well over a billion people, there isn’t much else to compare. China has invested heavily in infrastructure and manufacturing over the past few decades, and this in turn has attracted plenty of foreign investment and helped build up a sizable middle...
Full-size, body-on-frame, real SUVs are in some circles (not mine, thankfully) about as politically correct as a Monsanto home fracking kit.

Some of the scenes from the brief trailer already provide plenty of nerve-racking thrills. Announced a year ago, the video will see...
Volkswagen’s T-Roc was only revealed in August but engineers are already out testing a new high-performance version of the compact SUV. Spotted at the Nürburgring this week was a T-Roc prototype sporting the same quad-exhaust tip design of the Volkswagen Golf R. The engine note also matched the noise of the popular hot hatch. This...
A V8 version of the Kia Stinger could soon be on its way to America – but the bad news is that Australia look set to miss out. If what we’ve heard is on the money, the Kia Stinger V8 would probably make use of parent company Hyundai‘s ‘Tau’ V8 engine, a 5.0-litre normally aspirated unit […]
