Volvo S60 Cross Country sedan to debut in Detroit

Volvo will debut a new soft-roader variant of its 60-Series range, the Volvo S60 Cross Country sedan, at next week's Detroit motor show. It seems as though the S60 Cross Country will feature all of the same tweaks applied to the V60 Cross Country wagon. Both cars sit on a suspension package that rides 65mm higher than regular S60 and V60 variants. There's also grey wheel arch extensions that house higher profile rubber wrapped around either 18- or 19-inch wheels, depending on the model.

Chrysler 300: next-generation model may lose gangster look

Speaking with CarAdvice at the recent 2014 Los Angeles auto show, Chrysler head of design, Ralph Gilles, said the current model is already quite efficient – but he didn’t deny there could be changes in the pipeline for the styling of the brand's most iconic model.

Mini Citysurfer concept takes the Brit brand into two-wheeler territory

Meet the Mini with two wheels: this is the Mini Citysurfer concept, unveiled this week at the 2014 Los Angeles auto show. The two-wheeler looks like one of those Razor kick scooters that were popular in the early 2000s, but this new mobility device from Mini features an electric drive motor that allows it to hit 25km/h. The electric motor only comes on line after the rider initiates momentum with their own force.
