Subaru has just announced the details and pricing for the 2017 WRX and WRX STI models. The WRX and WRX STI are still based on the last generation Impreza for 2017, but do undergo some changes, including a revised gearbox for the WRX.

To the surprise of no one in particular, truck buyers usually believe that more is better. On that note, Ford has announced two big changes to give 2017 F-150 buyers more.

Springtime means a few things to Canadians. Some good like winter melting away, some bad: like potholes, floods… and taxes. Ah, yes, tax season! Many motorists out there, including your humble writer, have the obligation to keep a tab on all vehicle related expenses for tax purposes. As I was crunching my numbers for the past year, something hit me. I got a new car midyear, and my fuel costs went sharply down. I did not downsize, but I did switch to an alternative fuel vehicle (no, I’m not running plutonium or bacon grease).

While fuels like CNG (compressed natural gas), propane and hydrogen are not exactly mass-market friendly, we do have a few options out there – hybrids, plug-in hybrids, electrics and good ‘ole diesel. This got me thinking on the economics of alternate fuels in the Canadian context. Can we really save some loonies by upgrading to alternative drivetrains?

Hyundai News  - 
 
Hyundai has hinted it’s preparing to add a Sport trim to its compact Elantra lineup later this year, and thanks to the car’s recent introduction in its home market in South Korea as the Avante Sport, we have a pretty good idea what upgrades the car will come with when it shows up in Canada.

In what might be the most exciting launch at the Beijing Auto Show today, Audi has premiered the most powerful TT yet. The 400 hp, 2.5L five-cylinder, turbocharged TT RS. The TT RS has a tall rear wing, gaping air inlets, optional 20-inch forged wheels and available carbon fiber brakes all serving to make this a very serious looking sports car. A far cry from the cute little coupe that launched in 1998 with a main selling point of (admittedly beautiful) baseball glove seat stitching.

General Audi discussion  - 
 
Four Audi models are set to be featured in the upcoming Marvel film Captain America: Civil War. Three of these are unsurprising: the all-new R9 V10 will play a role, as will the 2017 A4 and A7 Sportback.

But what’s interesting is seeing the brand new SQ7 on the list as well. In a North American film? Does this mean we might have a hope of seeing the SQ7 in our showrooms?

Once upon a time you took a driver’s ed course, passed all the necessary written and practical tests, and were handed a shiny (or in my case, blue cardboard) driver’s license. It was your ticket to freedom, and for at least those first few years behind the wheel you felt like you had that whole ‘driving thing’ locked down. Your skills were top-notch – your judgment unquestionable – and your car control capabilities couldn’t be matched.

Volkswagen has used the massive Lake Wörthersee Volkswagen festival, starting today in southern Austria, to debut a new special edition of the GTI hot hatch. A 40th anniversary celebration for the GTI, the Clubsport S starts with a 2.0L turbocharged four that’s based on the GTI TCR race car engine and ends with a front-wheel drive record breaking 7:49 lap on the Nürburgring.

Once upon a time, people walked wherever they needed to go. This was tiresome and dull. Later, somebody got the idea to train large quadrupeds to carry us on their backs; while this was an improvement, it came with the side effect of large piles of dung everywhere. Walking became even more miserable.
But sometime around the end of the nineteenth century, somebody had the brilliant idea that the power of fire we’d wrested from the gods could be used to get around without tired legs and poop everywhere. The personal car was born.

Mazda Motors has announced that on April 22, they reached the milestone of one million Miatas made. It took them 27 years to reach that number, with all of the cars being put together at the Ujina plant in Hiroshima. The Millionth car is a Japanese spec 1.5L soft top in red.

Volkswagen has reached an agreement with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regarding 482,000 diesel models that used a special software program to comply with emissions standards during testing, while running ‘dirty’ in normal operation, emitting more particulates and pollution than permissible according to US emissions laws.
