Volkswagen Reminds Us the Arteon Exists by Refreshing It Already

You’re forgiven for forgetting the Volkswagen Arteon exists. That’s not necessarily the car’s fault. It’s a fairly good large sports sedan, but it plays in a class that has been overshadowed by the crossover craze, and top-level Arteons are priced so that similar Audis start to look appealing. As I wrote when the car launched, […] The post Volkswagen Reminds Us the Arteon Exists by Refreshing It Already appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2021 Nissan Rogue: Complete Overview of This Newly Redesigned Crossover

The 2021 Nissan Rogue has some big shoes to fill. Nissan sold 412,110 units of the outgoing second-generation Rogue in 2018. Although Nissan sold only 350,447 units (representing a 15 percent drop) in 2019, the message is clear: The Rogue is Nissan’s most popular vehicle in North America, so the third-generation model better be good. “The all-new Rogue was purposefully designed to meet all the needs of today’s young families,” said Mike Colleran, Senior Vice President, Nissan U.S. Marketing a...

Analog turns the Honda Hawk GT 650 into a flier

For some people , custom motorcycles are just a hobby. But for others, they put food on the table—and that’s when it pays to have a good measure of business savvy. Tony Prust gets it; he runs a tight ship at his shop, Analog Motorcycles. Every new customer gets directed to an online inquiry form, so that Tony knows exactly what he or she wants, and what they hope to spend. And since he prides himself on quality, he’s selective on what he takes on, too. That’s also why this project almost di...

Teleoperators who remotely monitor and control autonomous vehicles rely on high-performance connectivity to transfer 4K video, multiple audio streams and other data.

One Israeli startup, which spun out of video transmission technology company LiveU, has developed a connectivity platform aimed at ending unpredictable network behavior...

Bullit’s V-Bob 250 Looks Like a Killer Cruiser for European Markets

Some Harley-ish Style Bullit doesn’t sell motorcycles here in the U.S., but I sure wish they did. The company makes classic-looking bikes that are really cool and affordably priced.
