2014 Audi A4 Review

Sporty, tech-savvy, and trim, the Audi A4 and its sportier S4 variant are back for the 2014 model year with just a handful of small changes. Audi's penchant for continuous refinement and ability to find and inhabit a niche makes that just fine, however; the A4 family stands apart from the American and German alternatives alike, appealing in its own, sophisticated way.

Louisiana Drivers Are The Worst In America (Rest of The South Isn't So Hot, Either)

When Shakespeare wrote about Italians and Spaniards, he tended to make them a little crazy. Too much sun makes the blood boil, went the thinking at the time. Four-hundred years down the road, we know that most Renaissance medical theories were pure hogwash, but could a new study about driving in America give some support to the idea that warm weather makes Dickie-Joe and Janie-Mae a little cray-cray?

Want To Get Your Hands On A 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA? You'd Better Act Fast

To many critics and auto reviewers, the brand-new 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA is a game-changer: a great-looking ride with a sub-$30,000 pricetag that could turn the heads of many entry-level luxury buyers. If you're one of those shoppers, though, you'd better be quick on the draw.

From Motor Authority:

Chevrolet’s new SS muscle sedan has just arrived on the market but production of the car will last only until the end of 2017--at the latest--since the only place in the world it is produced at, Holden’s plant in Australia, has been confirmed to shut by the same date. Could the SS end up a one-hit wonder like two previous Holden-built cars sold here, the Pontiac GTO and G8?

Third Teaser Video For Lamborghini’s New Supercar Released

Lamborghini is back with a new video teasing its supercar destined to replace the Gallardo, which recently ceased production.

2014 Ford Escape SE 1.6-Liter EcoBoost: Gas Mileage Drive Report

The Ford Escape, entirely redesigned for 2013, is one of the best-selling entries in the popular category of compact crossover utility vehicles. The real-world gas mileage of the latest Escapes, however, does not quite seem to equal those cars' combined EPA ratings.

Tesla To Add Production Capacity For 35,000 More Electric Cars

Tesla is gearing up for increased production over the next few years with the aid of healthy tax breaks from its home state of California. It'll reportedly save the company as much as $34.7 million on the purchase of $415 million of new manufacturing equipment.

Will Biofuels Do Better In Aviation Than Anywhere Else?

Given how familiar most of us are with cars, it's easy to see them as the be-all and end-all when it comes to cleaning up transportation. Reduce fossil fuels, increase electric propulsion, increase use of biofuels, job done.
