Ford to debut a new economical car in Switzerland

Ford will reportedly be debuting a new small vehicle at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The vehicle is called the EcoSport and looks to be something of a small crossover SUV. It rather reminds me of the Nissan Juke in some respects. The vehicle is based on Ford's B- platform.

In European markets the vehicle would get a 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine with the option of a 1.0-liter EcoBoost. Shoppers in Europe are also expected to be able to choose a 1.5-liter diesel engine currently used in the European Ford Fiesta.

There is no word on official launch date. The vehicle is expected to be very reasonably priced. At this time there is no indication of whether the vehicle will be coming to the US.

Avocado green? What car colours say about us

The Brady Bunch Boys Attend the World's Largest Disco
Do you care what colour your car is? The most popular car colour in the world is white, according to PPG Industries, the biggest automotive paint supplier. For 2013, a whopping 25% of vehicles they supplied paint for were white. There’s the usual reason: in hotter climates, white absorbs less heat. There is also a new reason being proposed: we’re matching our cars to our Apple products. I was about to dismiss that last one as silly, until I ...

To test our sub-$30,000 speedsters, we put them through an even more rigorous set of tests than we usually use in our Challenges: We spent one day at the Byron, Ill., Dragway to get zero-to-60-mph times and quarter-mile times and speeds; we also captured 60-mph-to-zero braking distances there. We spent one day at the Autobahn Country Club in Joliet, Ill., where the experts put the cars through a long day on the road course there. We took all eight on a mileage drive of more than 2 ...

Jul 28 2014 5:00am CDT | Source: Cars.com

The $30,000 Cheap Speed Challenge was supposed to include the new 2014 Honda Civic Si, but its sad fate was sealed when a Chicago pothole claimed its front passenger-side tire on the evening before testing at a drag strip.
