Autonomous cars shift, 2017 Lincoln MKC, 2017 Jaguar F-Pace: What’s New @ The Car Connection

April 27, 2016

From The Car Connection:

China, UAE shift to autonomous cars, leaving the U.S. behind

The United States has a mature car culture. For decades, private individuals have bought vehicles, automakers have analyzed trends, and regulators have set guidelines for development of new models.

2017 Lincoln MKC review

The Lincoln MKC is aimed right at the center of the compact luxury crossover market. While the MKZ sedan is quirky and somewhat eccentric in its design, the MKC looks sophisticated but fits right into its class, performs with verve, and wows with a luxurious cabin and plenty of technology, all at a few grand less than the equivalent models from more established luxury brands.

Subaru WRX Vs. Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG: Compare Cars

Practicality and a storied performance pedigree don't often go together; but the Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG and Subaru WRX are two models that offer an impressive amount of both.

2017 Jaguar F-Pace first drive review

Montenegro is mostly off the radar of Americans. We kind of know Yugoslavia, even though it no longer exists.

VW drops Golf R 400 in favor of 306-horsepower GTI Clubsport S

Volkswagen is out testing a new version of its GTI. The car offers more performance than last year’s 261-horsepower (286 hp with overboost) GTI Clubsport and makes its world debut at the upcoming Wörthersee Tour GTI tuning fest in Austria.

Fisker Karma to return this year as Karma Revero

The long road to getting the Fisker Karma back in production is approaching its end. It was in early 2014 that China’s Wanxiang bought the remains of Fisker, including the rights to the failed automaker’s handsome albeit somewhat flawed extended-range electric sedan.

Germany announces $1.4 Billion electric-car incentive plan

After much discussion, Germany appears poised to implement significant incentives to encourage the purchase of electric cars. This week, the German government announced an incentive program that will include rebates for both electric cars and plug-in hybrids.

Even Saudi Arabia vows to end its 'addiction to oil'

Oil-rich Saudi Arabia is now starting to contemplate a future in which gasoline and diesel now longer power the majority of the world's cars. Over the next decade and a half, it hopes to transition its economy away from oil, largely by investing today's oil revenues in other industries.

Now, finally, the Germans are getting scared of Tesla?

When the Tesla Model S launched four years ago, the all-electric luxury sedan certainly had its critics. Many of them were executives at German luxury carmakers, quick to dismiss the upstart American carmaker as a quixotic but doomed effort.
