Honda baby NSX's interior and exterior revealed in patent filing

Honda has filed a patent for the interior of its "baby NSX" with the European Union Intellectual Property Office. The renders were discovered by AutoGuide and Autocar. Although they show a vehicle without a front windscreen, we believe that's because the patent only relates to the interior. Also of note, the car has an aircraft-style steering wheel with a flattened top and bottom...

Mercedes-Benz X-Class V6 to tackle Amarok

The all-new Mercedes-Benz X-Class ute has a big talking point – a V6 diesel engine that has more power than anything in the segment. That’s quite a headline act, considering the Volkswagen Amarok V6 launched with a class-leading level of power less than a year ago. But the new 3.0-litre V6 engine in the Mercedes-Benz X-Class Power flagship model will better its German rival for outright grunt...

Five-year warranties should be standard

It’s time we start asking car companies to up their written warranties . There is simply no good reason a Kia Sportage should have a seven-year warranty while a Toyota RAV4 is offered with only three. Is Toyota suggesting its product is not as good as a Kia? Is that the reality, in 2017? No, Toyota has it easy, knowing it can sell the RAV4 in high numbers through its reputation for quality, durability and reliability...
