Euro-spec Ford Ka spied undergoing testing
This is based on the Indian-made Figo. One of the biggest clues are the door handles. Brazilian Ka uses the (more rounded) door handles of the current Fiesta, while the Figo uses the door handles of the previous Figo/Fiesta. Chances are the engine lineup might include the Figo's 88PS 1.2 liter Ti-VCT engine.

2016 Honda CR-Z facelift unveiled in Japan
Wider rear tires? I think they mean wider rear track.

RHD Ford Mustang production starts, almost 2,000 orders in UK
At 410hp (416PS), the euro Mustang GT is actually down 26hp, the North American version and some select LHD markets get the 435hp version.Trying to lessen its CO2 emissions might also be one of the factors. I think it's still a good deal for its price though.

Toyota Land Cruiser facelift goes official with more upscale design
@trapezius, power delivery of a smaller higher-revving V6 is different from that of a larger more relaxed V8 which produces more torque at a lower rpm, this is more suited for larger heavy SUVs. The 4.6 liter V8 gasoline engine used by the Land Cruiser for some markets makes 304 hp @5,500rpm and 324 lb-ft @3,400rpm. For comparison the 3.5 V6 of an IS350 produces 306 hp @6,400rpm and 277 lb-ft @4,800rpm.

7 minutes of Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG getting crushed is the saddest thing you will see all day [video]
I think this was taken in Mexico. Smuggled across the border? I thought I heard some Spanish in the audio.

Entry-level Audi A4 B9 imagined
At least it's got 18 inch steel wheels on super low profile tires. :D I would have chopped narrower 16s on it though.

2016 Holden Caprice to a receive a facelift and a new engine
GM will shutdown the plant that makes it (Holden plant in Australia) at the end of 2017. That's probably one of the reasons they're giving it a final facelift instead of developing a new one.

Honda BR-V crossover prototype teased ahead of Indonesian Auto Show debut
It appears to be based on the new Honda Mobilio (7-seat MPV version of the Brio city car). This model is also powered by a 1.5 liter engine. http://assets.autodeal.com.ph/custom/car-model-photo/original/phpQsHufg-5541ccd1ef9a6.jpg

Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe spied for the first time; looks as expected [video]
About the minimum camo, I think that's because the front half is identical to the GLC which was already unveiled. The coupe-style fastback rear end still has camo.

Next generation Audi A4 Avant shows taillights in new spy pics
@livc44411, Audi sedans/wagons/coupes from the A4 and up do not share the same platform as VWs. The engine orientation/drivetrain layout is also different.

Maruti Suzuki dealership in India uses brand new customer car as taxi before delivery
A large percentage of cars in India are subcompact B-segment or A-segment cars. The car in the photo is a lower trim sub-compact Suzuki Swift LXi with a 1.2 liter engine, tire size is 165/80R14. The higher trim model uses bigger alloy wheels and 185/65R15 tires. Narrow higher profile tires are also good for some Indian roads specially the rougher rural roads.

Next generation Honda Civic Sedan and Coupe revealed through leaked patent sketches
Most cars look like that in patent drawings which use isometric illustrations (they look flat/2D without perspective/ distortions). The Civic Concept for example is 90% close to the production model, that will give you an idea of how long the overhangs look like vs the isometric illustrations.

China-spec Ford Mondeo facelift spied in China
@Worldcarfans, that looks like the new Taurus. Take note, if you look at the rear view, you can see the shape of the rear quarter windows that match up with the new Taurus spy photos. The Mondeo/Fusion's rear quarter window looks different and has a more fastback-like roofline.

2016 Chevrolet Malibu teased ahead of New York Auto Show reveal; will lose 300 lbs
A 4 inch longer wheelbase is expected? That means it will have the same wheelbase as the new Impala. Hmmm...

It looks like a cleaned up/updated version of the GT40 that appears on the packaging of Ford's "Motorcraft" auto parts.

Hyundai confirms Nissan Juke rival for 2017
I think the ix25 will also be sold in other markets like India and possibly Europe too. ix25 is Hyundai's response to the EcoSport, while the upcoming 2017 crossover will be more coupe-like to rival the Juke.

Cuban dealers sold 50 cars in 6 months after loosened restrictions, high prices to blame
So according to the Cuban government, "proceeds from new car sales will be invested in their archaic and inefficient transportation system." Someone should tell them, if they lower the tax, proceeds or whatever they want to call it, more people will actually buy cars and they will actually have something to collect.

2015 Ford Focus ST unveiled with revised styling & new diesel engine
Ford has a bigger 197hp 2.2 diesel in the Mondeo. The Focus ST diesel's 2.0 engine is on par with Golf GTD's diesel, in fact the Ford engine makes more torque than the one in the GTD.

This is the new Toyota Yaris for China and ASEAN markets. Link to official site: http://www.toyota.co.th/en/product.php?model=yaris Unlike the current Yaris sold in Japan, Europe and North America, this Yaris uses the longer wheelbase platform of the old Yaris sedan. This Yaris hatchback is the direct hatch equivalent of the new Vios sedan (reskin of the old Yaris sedan).

I think Corvettes in Europe are sold through Cadillac dealerships.

Atherton, CA city manager wants Tesla Model S police cruisers
...and in other news, the Third Tesla Model S Catches fire. Apparently their other problem now is road debris can puncture the battery pack from under and the car can catch fire. Seriously, they still want this as their Police cruiser?

Ford Escort hits the patent office
@NelisvanWieren, probably not the UK. Compact sedans don't sell in the UK and most of western Europe. So most manufacturers stopped offering them in those places.

Ford EcoSport Limited Edition introduced
@Herman, that's possible, though as of this moment, none of those engines are being used in Fords manufactured in Brazil.

Ford EcoSport Limited Edition introduced
Ford would probably source it from Brazil, if they plan to sell it in the USA. They build EcoSports there with the old 145hp 2.0L engine which is also exported to Mexico.

Not bad considering the 123hp Fiesta Titanium 1.0 EcoBoost costs 16,000 GBP.

2015 Ford Mustang could weigh 400 lbs less - report
I don't believe it will be 6.5 inches narrower, because that would mean it will be as wide as a Fiesta! Lol That ain't happening. And the photos show it's almost the same shape and proportions as the current outgoing model. Yes, the current Mustang is just a bit wider than a Focus and Fusion.

Aston Martin inks engine deal with Ford - report
Do you like any modern Aston Martins? From the 90s DB7 onwards? If you do, those were developed when they were part of Ford, same goes with the platform and engines of the current Aston Martins.
