Electric vehicles win MPG contest with zero pollution
  Handwriting is on the wall for gasoline powered cars
The electric vehicles taking part in this year's MPG Marathon demonstrated how cost effective and reliable they were by completing the course in virtually the same time as their competitors – but by using less energy and with no pollution. Three electric vehicles took part for the first time in the 23-team eco-driving event, which was again sponsored by ALD Automotive and TRACKER and was won by Honda engineers Fergal McGrath and James Warren, driving a Honda Civic Tourer and recording an outstanding 97.92mpg.
Is Citroen Set To Make A Return To The US?
  by Luke Peters
The French car maker Citroen is in something of a state of flux at the moment. The PSA Peugeot Citroen Group that owns the company is reshuffling Citroen's model lineup. As part of that process, Citroen is making its DS luxury car brand an independent company. For those of you familiar with Citroen's long and rich history, the last time Citroen sold a car in the United States was back in 1972. The company stopped selling cars here in the US because of strict auto regulations.
We drive the 2014 Ram 3500 High Output Diesel
  by Ali Arsham
Let's pretend that you wanted to move a very heavy load up a very long and steep hill. What vehicle would you use? We were at that point and selected a Dodge Ram 3500 dually for the job. Then we loaded it up and headed for the hills to see how it would perform and the results were amazing.
We drive the Fiat 500e
  by Ali Arsham
Leave it to the Italians to add style and performance to an electric car. The Fiat 500e was a pleasant surprise for us and we hated to see it go away. Most electric cars have the personality of a banana and can even be less fun to drive. The Fiat 500e delivered a terrific driving experience with 87 mile range in a good looking package during its stay with us.
Atherton underscores vital role of racing in innovation
  at international SAE conference
As they have for many, many years, every race car in last Saturday's TUDOR United SportsCar Championship race at Circuit of The Americas had a rearview mirror. That's not news, as a rearview mirror is a simple, obvious and essential part of any automobile. But as IMSA President and Chief Operating Officer Scott Atherton pointed out last week in a keynote address to the SAE North American International Powertrain Conference in Chicago, the rearview mirror is one of the most basic examples of automobile innovation driven by racing.
Alfa Romeo's Sexy New Sports Car, The 4C
  by Luke Peters
Alfa Romeo was once a great and popular car maker. But it’s no secret that the Fiat-owned firm is suffering financial problems. When you go on the Alfa Romeo website, you can only see two new models on offer - the Mito and Giulietta. Fiat recently announced that they are investing 5 billion euros into the ailing car marque. A total of eight new models will get introduced to the Alfa Romeo lineup, and one of those is the 4C.
No Left Turns
  by Michael Gartner
My father never drove a car. Well, that's not quite right. I should say I never saw him drive a car. He quit driving in 1927, when he was 25 years old, and the last car he drove was a 1926 Whippet. "In those days," he told me when he was in his 90s, "to drive a car you had to do things with your hands, and do things with your feet, and look every which way, and I decided you could walk through life and enjoy it or drive through life and miss it."

We drive the Honda Civic EX-L
  by Ali Arsham
Honda sells around 20,000 Civics each month which is only second to their Accord. Since its introduction in 1973, Honda has sold 8.8 million Civics just in the United States alone. With those numbers, the Civic is a very important model to Honda’s bottom line. A couple of years ago, Honda came up with the ninth generation Civic that is said to be completely redesigned.
We drive the Honda Accord and Accord Hybrid
  by Ali Arsham
The Honda Accord is a very important vehicle for Honda. It is the second bestselling car in the US, selling about 29,000 cars in just last month alone. When Honda decided to create the all-new ninth generation Accord, they had to be careful not to mess with a great product. Fortunately, the new Accord is more luxurious and better performing than any Accord in its 38 year history.
Kids don't care about cars anymore
  by Bob Lefsetz
You mean I need a bigger engine and a swoopy style to get laid? I just go on Tinder! Welcome to the baby boomer nightmare, wherein everything they’ve held near and dear becomes irrelevant. Like automobiles. Cars are a utility. So long Ferrari. So long Aston Martin. So long the SUV. Do you think kids want to own a big box with terrible mileage just like their parents drive? Just because cars have lasted a century, that does not mean they're here to stay, that does not mean they're not ripe for disruption. Cars are the newspapers of today. Something oldsters can't live without and youngsters can.
