The MovinGenius envisions a future where there’s a special world wide web for cars

In Mohammad Ghezel’s vision of the future, vehicles communicate with each other, with the road and all the traffic elements on it, and even with a Traffic Center that’s dubbed as the WWVW, or the World Wide Vehicle Web. This allows the vehicles in Ghezel’s vision to avoid bumpy rides, collisions, and even traffic jams, as the cars employ an Anti-Collide System, where millions of cars can swarm together and drive right by each other without any impact. Since everything is in constant communicatio...

China’s New Buick Encore: Unusually Strong Visual Appeal, and Not Coming Here

The pint-sized Buick Encore subcompact crossover came to China in 2012, and, judging by the photo directly above, the launch of an updated model in 2016 was a splashy affair, indeed.

Here’s Looking at You, Kid: Volvo to Deploy In-car Cameras to Monitor Your Behavior

Volvo has burdened itself with the unrealistic duty of ending fatalities in its cars. While an admirable goal, eliminating roadway mishaps in their entirety is an exceptionally tall order.

Spring Cleaning Checklist: How to ‘Marie Kondo’ Your Car

Your car wants winter to end just as much as you do.

Do your car a favor and give it the TLC it needs and deserves after a long season of keeping you warm and safe.

Zipcar Disruption

This isn't a security story, but it easily could have been. Last Saturday, Zipcar had a system outage: "an outage experienced by a third party telecommunications vendor disrupted connections between the company's vehicles and its reservation software." That didn't just mean people couldn't get cars they reserved. Sometimes is meant they couldn't get the cars they were already driving to work: Andrew Jones of Roxbury was stuck on hold with customer service for at least a half-hour while he and ...

Pure and simple: A Bonneville T120 from Central Java

The 21st century motorcycle is a complex beast, crammed with electronics and trick engineering in the name of one-upmanship and regulatory approval. But there’s something strangely compelling in the simplicity of an older bike from less complicated times. And they don’t come more stripped down than this 1972 T120 from Pitstop Motor Werk. Pitstop is a team of three led by an Indonesian builder called Agung. They’re based in the hot and humid province of Central Java, and like most Indonesi...

2019 Subaru Ascent Premier Review – In a Big Country

Approaching my Ascent tester behind a not-so-local dealer, I felt a presence. Like a pre-war bank, this thing was solid, monolithic, immovable, looming over all of humanity and granting entry to only a choice few. Given the profit Subaru’s going to make off these things, it’s not an inaccurate comparison.

Ace of Base: 2020 Kia Telluride LX

Korean automakers have a history of labelling their crossovers and SUVs with names ripped from rugged-sounding towns of the American mid- and southwest. Witness the Santa Fe and Tucson.
