Motor Mouth: Let’s face it, our cars look entirely the same

Aug 29 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Head down, fingers maniacally keyboarding my iPhone. Embroiled, as we baby boomers are seemingly always wont to be, in something we are sure is so earth-shatteringly important that it simply cannot wait. Not paying the slightest attention, as always, to anything around me, I spot a burgundy shape looking vaguely SUV-ish. Thinking it the reddish-hued MKC I was testing, I, without even a furtive glance up, flip the Lincoln ...

Aug 28 2014 7:01pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

The specs on the just-announced Polaris Slingshot are setting every gearhead’s pants ablaze: under 800kg curbweight, 173hp 2.4L engine, 18” wheels with grippy rubber, and a price tag under $20K. Well that sounds fantastic — what’s the catch? No catch at all, unless you’re concerned by the fact that this thing seems to be missing a wheel. It’s 50 per cent the cost of a similarly performing sports car, but you only get 75 per c ...

Launched in 2014, the BMW i3 is a BMW like no other. It's an all-electric city car with radically advanced technology, it's so distinct from the traditional BMW lineup that it forms part of a special "BMW i" sub-brand, and its shape is unlike that of anything currently within the BMW or MINI fold.
