New Honda Fit/Jazz Shuttle leaked in patent drawings
Honda _could_ sell this in the USA if they can put in the 140 bhp 1.8-liter "R" engine from the Honda Civic--essentially the 2015 US-market Honda Civic drivetrain. But I think Honda instead will sell the European Civic in the USA, probably the wagon version with that drivetrain.

Volkswagen considering a van & pickup for the U.S.
My guess: Volkswagen has approved the Touran for the USA market and we'll see it powered by either the 1.8 liter turbocharged gasoline engine (180 bhp) or 2.0 liter turbocharged Diesel engine (184 bhp).

Mysterious Ford Fiesta spied, is it the Fiesta RS or a mule for the next-generation model?
I drive a 2012 Honda Fit Sport (US market model). Rear disc brakes on front wheel drive cars are kind of overkill, given that on a FWD car, the front brakes take the majority of the braking force.

Volkswagen announces three-row Tiguan production in Mexico starting late 2016
This pretty much confirms we may see the three-row Tiguan in the USA. Hopefully, it'll be powered by the 184 bhp TDI engine so it'll be powerful AND fuel efficient.

Fiat's version of the Mazda MX-5 will be called 124 Spider
My guess is that if the Fiat 124 does come to the USA market will use Fiat's 1.4-liter turbo engine rated at around 160 bhp, but will use six-speed manual or automatic transmissions from Mazda.

2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC drops most of its camouflage in latest spy shots
The GLC will probably include the 201 bhp 2.1-liter BlueTEC turbodiesel engine for the US market.

Honda Civic Type R unveiled with 310 PS [videos]
While the US market will not get this car, I think there is a real chance the drivetrain from this car could make it to the next-generation Honda Civic model, most likely the two-door coupe. This drivetrain plus the Civic Coupe's true independent rear suspension? It could end up being a way nicer ca...

Honda Civic Type R spied up close undisguised
While the Civic Type-R hatchback will not make it to the US market, there are increasing rumors that Honda is seriously looking at putting in the 280 bhp turbocharged engine into the next-generation US-market Honda Civic that could be due as early as this fall.
