2016 Mazda MX-5 performance specifications announced [video]
I agree. The US-market Miata may have power in the 170 bhp range if Mazda requires the use of 91 pump octane (95 RON) unleaded gasoline.

Euro-spec Honda CR-V with 1.6 160 HP diesel and 9-speed auto detailed
Don't think this drivetrain won't make it to the USA--especially if the drivetrain meets EPA Tier II Bin 5 emissions rules needed for 50-state sale.

Audi rules out sub A3 models in the U.S.
I think Audi wants to leave that market to Volkswagen, probably with the next-generation Volkswagen Polo based on the MQB platform. I expect VW to sell the MQB-based Polo in five-door hatchback and four-door sedan (saloon) form in the USA market, likely assembled at VW's Puebla, Mexico assembly line...

Porsche R&D boss confirms flat-four engine for the Boxster & Cayman
My guess is that the new H-4 "boxer" engine will use two turbochargers--and the turbos will be connected to an electric motor for much faster spin up to reduce turbo lag.

2016 Chevrolet Volt unveiled with 50 mile electric-only range [videos]
While the new Volt looks like it was strongly influenced by the current Hyundai Elantra (i35 in Europe) design, it certainly looks way better than the current model and with its less "far out" body design, will probably sell in larger numbers than the current model.

Hyundai plans two new factories in China, each with 300,000-unit annual capacity
I think these factories will be building mostly Hyundai and Kia smaller models such as the Hyundai Verna (as the Accent is known in China) and the Kia Venga hatchback.

US-spec Honda Civic to get the Civic Type R's engine?
I'll take it!! :-) And with one very good reason: it will likely have the potential for better handling than the European Civic Type R hatchback, since the US-market Civic Coupe has a true independent rear suspension, not the Honda Fit-derived torsion beam rear suspension (the European Civic hatchba...

Mercedes GLE Coupe officially unveiled
I think there is a good chance one of the US models is a GLE 350 BlueTec, especially this is the right size of vehicle for that V-6 turbodiesel engine (which I believe is US-legal).
