The Veloster has been confused about where it belongs in the automotive market, but we still love it. This car offers only three entry doors for passengers, which is a bit odd, but it also gives you a sporty look and a feel that you can’t deny. The rear hatch opens up to a cavernous cargo area and with the addition of the turbocharged model a couple years ago this car does have respectable power. Is it a hot hatch, is a practical choice, is it even a good car to buy; no matter what this car is or isn’t, it’s definitely fun to drive.
When you think of autonomous driving and what it will mean for the future are you excited or frightened? Regardless of how you feel about it, this future of driving seems inevitable and eventually will be a reality. As you head out to your vehicle to go to work or to make a trip to the store, think about all the different aspects of driving that you encounter during even a short drive. You could have children playing nearby and need to take evasive action to make sure you don’t run them over, you might need to slow for traffic that has gotten backed up or you might hear the sirens of an oncoming emergency vehicle.
For many years one of the most impressive selling features of the Hyundai lineup has been the long warranty on the power train. This ten-year/100,000 miles warranty has been offered across the lineup and given us what we want to enjoy on the road when it comes to peace of mind, but what if you still need more value? This is where the Hyundai Accent comes in. This is a car that comes to you as a stylish subcompact car that offers the ride quality you want and the equipment you need in a package that makes it easy for you to afford the price.
For many years the diesel engine was thought of as reserved for trucks, especially semi-trucks as they trudge along bringing huge trailers loaded with materials to their destinations. At some point automakers started putting diesel engines into smaller passenger vehicles which meant more of us could begin to learn how this type of fuel worked. The diesel engine was originally thought of as a dirty engine that was used only for hauling and carrying but the tradeoff was a huge amount of pollutants in the air. As the diesel made it into passenger cars the only concern was whether or not this engine burned clean enough.
As the place where more cars are making their mark and showing up to debut what we’ll want to see on the market we’ve seen a ton of great supercars that have cross the stage in Geneva. Something has to be special for a relatively unknown name to make it to this show and be something we want to talk about and the Dendrobium from Vanda Electrics is a car that certainly gives us a great look and some impressive features that have made it worthy of at least one discussion.
Some cars get old and go out of style but others are the cars you want to drive and enjoy every day. These special cars are the ones we restore, the ones we keep in pristine condition and the ones that we want to enjoy on those special days when it calls for something better to drive. Whether or not these cars are worth much on the market is irrelevant, the cars you want to drive that have come around recently can be the cars you want to keep on driving for the next several decades. Take a look at some of these instant timeless classics:
While we tend to celebrate different automotive brands on a regular basis, the celebration of a company that offers the parts and features that make cars better and more enjoyable can be sometimes overlooked but not this time. When the name of the company is Mopar, which is a car customization company that’s been partnered with Dodge for many years, it’s time to celebrate. For the past 80 years Mopar has been offering the upgrades we love on our vehicles and has been a significant partner of the brands we know and trust for many years, making it an important part of our culture.

Of course the DB11 wasn’t the only thing on display from Aston Martin during this show.
