2015 Subaru WRX Revealed

The 2015 Subaru WRX is more than just a hotted-up econocar--it's the standard bearer for a whole cadre of enthusiasts who put down Mustangs and show no love for Camaros. It's a whizzy, turbocharged, all-wheel-driven blast--and it's new for 2015.

2014 Hyundai Elantra Updates

The Hyundai Elantra went from also-ran to front-runner in the 2011 model year, with a hook-laden shape and a set of features that outshone Honda's Civic and Toyota's Corolla.

Chevy Volt Owners Drive More Electric Miles Than Nissan Leaf Drivers: Why?

Is it a case of picking the right electric car for the right job? Or could a lack of "range anxiety" really lead drivers to cover more miles? It's a kind of chicken-or-egg question, but it came to mind when our author Matthew Klippenstein sent us some data.

Volkswagen Twin Up Diesel Plug-In Hybrid: Full Photo Gallery

Volkswagen has used the Tokyo Motor Show to launch the latest member of its plug-in family, the Twin Up minicar. Based on the regular Up sold in Europe, the Twin Up ditches the usual one-liter three-cylinder gasoline engine for something considerably more advanced--the diesel plug-in drivetrain from the XL1 "eco supercar".
