Driverless cars? Not without a steering wheel, Volvo study finds

The all-new Volvo S90 will be equipped with highly-autonomous driving technology as standard across the range, but the steering wheel and pedals won’t be shifting to the optional extras list anytime soon. That’s simple enough logic, of course: it’s the year 2016 and motorists won’t be allowed to cruise entirely hands-free for some years yet - no matter what Google might think commuters are looking for in a driverless car...

Lexus LC500 vs Lexus LF-LC Concept: Styling Faceoff

When a new model begins life as an exaggerated and highly stylised sketch, it's no stretch to imagine that the look of the later physical concept will bend a few less laws of physics.
