Every person who catches a glimpse locks eyes on it, and you needn’t be clairvoyant to read pedestrians’ thoughts, which mostly boil down to, “What the . . . ?” Bending in and under the dihedral doors is an event, every time. Before you fall into the car, you must...Continue reading »

Honda’s popular CR-V crossover has entered its fifth generation. All new, the 2017 CR-V falls in line with Honda’s recent design language. Its front end looks sharper than before thanks in part to a wide chromed grille that underscores a pair of chiseled headlights. Every trim level comes standard with Honda’s signature wing-shaped LED daytime running lights. The rumors that claimed the CR-V would offer seven seats turned out to be false. The model carries on as a five-seater even though it offers a longer wheelbase...Continue reading »

It will wear the three-pointed star, making it a Mercedes-Benz. And it is being developed by AMG, the performance sub-brand.

Daimler used the Paris Motor Show to confirm work is underway on the hypercar and also to launch the new EQ brand. Executives aren’t...Continue reading »
