In review: 2019 Honda Fit

It's not a powerhouse, but Honda's Fit handles a lot better than you'd expect for something at this price. And on top of it, its flip-n-fold rear seat can make it as practical as a crossover. Find out more in my review at AutoTrader.ca. [Author: Jil McIntosh]

Lyft You Up: Rideshare IPO Could Mean Big Payday for GM

Back in 2016, General Motors invested half a billion bucks in Lyft, the rideshare company bent on taking Uber to school. When the deal was made, the companies portrayed it as a long-term strategic alliance. Since then, investments have been made in Lyft by GM’s competitors (namely Ford), and GM has made investments in potential […] The post appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Shades of Tomorrow: Mercedes-Benz’s ‘In-Car Gaming Challenge’

The Mercedes-Benz-sponsored “In-Car Gaming Challenge” isn’t exactly breaking news. Daimler made the announcement almost a week ago, with the story only gaining traction online thanks to a slower-than-usual news cycle. Frankly, we originally planned to ignore the topic entirely — until we realized no one discussed the broader implications. That probably sounds more ominous than […] The post Shades of Tomorrow: Mercedes-Benz’s ‘In-Car Gaming Challenge’ appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

AutoSens Returning To Detroit: Conference Plays Vital Role In Autonomous Tech

AutoSens, a leading and influential global summit on autonomous driving, is returning to Detroit. Technical sessions and presentations from from Microsoft, Sony, General Motors, and MIT are planned. AutoSens takes aim at the biggest challenges facing autonomous driving by encouraging collaboration.  Not long ago, self-driving cars were figments of science fiction; the ideal centerpiece of a quasi-Utopian yet technologically-advanced society in the far away future. For over a century, we humans...

A Look at Six Car Design Specialties, Part 4: The HMI (Human-Machine Interface) Designer

As we saw in the introduction to this series, in 2015 Acura's dashboards and interior controls were poorly regarded by the automotive press. "Busy," "redundant," "illogical," and "confusing" were popular criticisms; this wasn't a good look for a company that was trying to re-kickstart their original mantra of "precision crafted performance."At the 2016 L.A. Auto Show, the company took the unusual step of unveiling not a concept car--they'd already done that with the Precision Concept earlier tha...

EU to Require Speed-Limiting Tech in New Cars

Aimed at saving lives and preparing the general public for fully autonomous vehicles, the EU is en route to pass a measure that requires all new cars to be outfitted with speed-limiting features. According to a new study, the proposal will save around 25,000 lives and prevent 140,000 serious injuries. It won’t go into full effect until 2022, but the forthcoming years will be formative …

Just a Reminder That There’s a New Ford Escape Coming

Debuting in North America for the 2013 model year, the third-generation Ford Escape is getting long in the tooth, forced to compete against newer compact crossovers like the Chevrolet Equinox and Honda CR-V.

QOTD: What’s Your Preferred Spring Break Chariot?

When people are forced to interact with each other via a common employer, it’s only a matter of time before the what-if games start up in earnest.

The Aprilia RS 660 Is Coming Soon

The RS 660 Concept Will to Life Aprilia is known for high-powered sportbikes, and that has always meant a bike with an engine displacement of 900cc or more.

Auto Industry ‘Unites’ Against U.S. Import Tariffs

Of all the things that automakers hate, losing money has to hold a permanent place at the top of the list. If you aren’t making money, you can’t keep building cars — and if you aren’t building cars then you’re not much of an automaker. Following that almost irresponsibly oversimplified logic, it’s no wonder the […] The post Auto Industry ‘Unites’ Against U.S. Import Tariffs appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

The Keeper: Gasoline builds a BMW R series for Cam Elkins

You may not know the name Cam Elkins, but there’s a good chance you’re familiar with his work. He’s the man behind the brilliant short films called Stories of Bike, which explore the relationships between custom motorcycles and their owners. After several years filming other people’s bikes, Cam decided it was time to get a custom of his own. He selected a 1986 BMW R65. “I’ve always loved boxer engines,” he tells us. “I think they’re reminiscent of old WW2 airplanes, which had such a sleek ...

Union Official: UAW Bent Over Backwards for GM to Keep Lordstown Open, and for What?

The last Chevrolet Cruze rolled out of Lordstown Assembly earlier this month, with the 53-year-old plant going dark two days later.

Lyft closes at $87.49, 0.86% up on its opening price after opening with a 21% pop

Ride-hailing startup Lyft may bear the distinction of having highest net loss of any maiden public company ever going public, but despite that, it made its debut in a high gear this morning. Trading as LYFT on Nasdaq, the company’s shares opened at nearly noon today at just under $87/share, a pop of 21 percent on the $72/share figure the company set last night, when it raised $2.34 billion from investors, valuing the company at $24 billion.

INNOVV Power Hub 2: Early Release Review

Introduction How time flies; it seems like it was only yesterday since we published our first look at the INNOVV Power Hub 1 product – I’ll blame it on cabin fever generated largely due to our lousy and continuing winter… But like the original Power Hub 1 reviewed in December 2016 to be exact, the newest iteration, now called the Power Hub 2 still provides five switched in-line fused outputs, but in a much smaller form factor – taking up about half the space needed for the original Power Hub ...

Bikes Are No Longer Just for Dudes

The world of motorcycles is always growing and evolving to meet the needs and desires of consumers. But some of that growth might surprise a lot of riders. As a female rider, I honestly would not have estimated that nearly 20% of all bike owners in the United States are ladies. But that is exactly what the Motorcycle Industry Council discovered during its latest poll. The 2018 MIC Motorcycle/ATV Owners Survey found that 19% of all owners are female, which is a 5% increase in just four years, and...
