On Wednesday, Mazda revealed the refreshed sedan at the 2017 Los Angeles auto show, and it brings numerous updates and improvements. Most noticeably, Mazda brushed up the 6's front fascia with a new grille and standard LED headlights. Mazda calls the evolution of its Kodo design language "Mature Elegance." Painted surfaces now extend lower on the car's body, and new 17- or 19-inch wheel designs complete the fresh look...

    Jeep on Wednesday unveiled the redesigned 2018 Wrangler at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show.

    BMW’s i8 plug-in hybrid sports car can now be ordered as a convertible. BMW took the covers off the new i8 Roadster on Wednesday at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, where the automaker also announced some updates for the i8 coupe. It was all the way back in 2012 when we first saw a concept of an open-top i8. Why it’s taken five years for the car to reach production isn’t clear. The i8 Roadster features an automated soft-top roof that functions at speeds of up to 31 mph and requires less than 16 seconds to go up or down. When down, the roof stows away into a perpendicular...

The iconic swoopy sedan now enters its third generation with the 2019 CLS unveiled on Wednesday at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show. The car also marks the introduction of the next step in the evolution of Mercedes’ “sensual purity” design philosophy. It’s a design philosophy where sculptural, three-dimensional surfaces take focus in creating character, as opposed to creases or overly complex graphics favored by other makes. The 2019 CLS’s design is...

The crossover was revealed ahead of the...

  • 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan R-Line

    The Volkswagen Tiguan is a nice, handsome option in the small SUV segment. It is not, however, very sporty looking. Enter the latest Volkswagen R-Line package. Attached to the 2018 Tiguan, this affordably priced trim package adds an extra dose of spice to this currywurst of a crossover. There’s new front and rear fascias, the former of which is so low it’s easy to forget the Tiguan is supposed to be a crossover. That said, neither new body piece feels tacked on or unnatural—both the front and the rear clip fit in with the rest of the Tiguan’s lines. We especially like...
