The Mercedes Benz GLC is the new entry level SUV that is slated to replace the GLK. There’s also several power train ranges including a hybrid version as well. The new GLC is very similar to the C-Class which was inspired by the S-Class. By the transitive property, we can say that the GLC is also inspired by the S-Class.
Some of the lower model GLC will even have the "AMG look" which gives it the AMG inspired look without having to shell out all of the AMG sticker price.
The 2016 MINI Clubman is nearing showtime, and the camo it’s wearing is not too smothering so we can actually see the taillights. The taillights look pretty similar to what we saw in Geneva, but the headlights give the front of the vehicle kind of a strange look. It also looks like the Clubman will have full-size back doors that work for those who are less nimble. The full-sized doors looks to have a ton of mixed reviews from people who can’t seem to decide whether or not they like the idea of being able to maneuver around easily.
What’s under this new Honda Civic Type-R besides the icicles that have formed on the undercarriage? It’s got a new 2-liter turbo engine, 280 horse power, Brembo brakes, and a body kit that would make car fans turn green with envy. News like this isn’t exactly kept a secret since it’s pretty out in the open that this car is lusting over the FWD Nurburgring record.
Since we are partial to all things lighting related, we noticed the LED lights on the roof bar! This looks pretty appropriate for the snow and winter that the Civic Type-R is conquering at the moment. Rumor has it that the VTEC turbo engine will have 300hp, but only time will tell.
The Ford Taurus was introduced in 1985 and has grown to a whopping six whole generations of the all American sedan. Sure, the fifth generation was extremely short lived, but it looks like the sixth generation is making up for that hiccup. With the new 2015 machine with a 3.5 liter 24-valve, it’s supposed to debut in North America with a wider and longer variation of the Ford CD4.
Based on these spy shots, it looks like the new Ford Taurus has a grill that resembles the one found on the Aston Martin with a stiff upper lip in the front fascia. The hood and the headlights have a bit of inspiration from the Ford Mondeo as well.
Testing in the wintertime? Looks like the testing crew has taken the new plug-in hybrid E-Class up to Sweden to see how the car fares in heavy snowstorms. You can see that there’s a charging port in the rear bumper just like the GLE plug-in hybrid. So what else is going to change? The new plug-in hybrid E-Class will be a bit longer than the one out right now, but Mercedes is also going to extend the wheelbase. Get ready for a lighter and rigid 2016 W213 E-Class.
