http://insideevs.com - Buick has confirmed what we reported several months back. The automaker will launch a Voltec-power car in China later this year.
http://www.autocar.co.uk - I was late, and they weren’t going to let me forget it. The fact that I’d been caught in catastrophic roadworks a couple of miles from Bedfordshire’s Millbrook test track – where I was scheduled to start learning how to be a professional test driver – didn’t cut any ice with my new bosses.
http://www.autonews.com - Uber and Lyft and the like have turned the taxi industry on its head in a few short years. Now the industry looks like it may be disrupted again, this time by automakers.
https://www.cars.com - It had been a while since we last experienced Cadillac's range-topper, so we spent a week with the latest example, a 2017 Cadillac Escalade four-wheel-drive Platinum. We drove a short-wheelbase version that tickled the $100,000 MSRP mark and lacked nothing on the model's options list except the extra length of the Escalade ESV.
https://practicalmotoring.com.au - The new European Opel Insignia has a mountain to climb in Australia. It has to capture the mainstream, as it’s going to wear Holden Commodore badges. And yes it’s front-drive, or in top versions AWD. The cabin is big and finished with a lush quality the Commodore never had, it’s loaded with high-tech features and it’s a quiet comfy machine to ride in. Not such good news for the driver though: it’s a dull steer. That said, we drove about the dullest version in the Euro lineup. Oz versions get more power and a locally developed suspension tune, so there’s hope yet.
https://www.cars.com - Sometimes I fantasize about driving something that is not a minivan or SUV. It would be swell if I could haul my three children, husband, dog and all of their junk in a sports car or sedan. OK, sports car is total fantasy, but sedan? Maybe. Most don't work, but when a car like the all-new 2017 Buick LaCrosse comes out, I wonder. Buick claims the sedan's spacious interior can comfortably fit all kinds of large adults, but what does that mean for my largish family?
http://newatlas.com - For the 2017 model year, Buick totally reconfigured the big LaCrosse sedan in an effort to differentiate it from the crowd of standard and semi-luxurious sedans on the market. Buick succeeded, taking what used to be just a restyled Impala and making it something unique to the segment.
https://www.cars.com - No longer a plus-sized entrant among compact SUVs, the redesigned 2018 Chevrolet Equinox takes direct aim at popular models like the Ford Escape, Honda CR-V and Nissan Rogue. The new Equinox is less distinctive than its predecessor, which had a certain bigger-is-better appeal among smallish rivals. This one feels more like the rest of them, but it lands there with undeniable refinement.
http://gmauthority.com - If you’re set on owning a GMC crossover, but the 2017 Acadia and its midsize proportions aren’t for you, time is ticking. Unknown to many, the previous-generation GMC Acadia - which adopted the discontinued Saturn Outlook's body when it was refreshed in 2013 - is still in production at the Lansing Delta Township assembly plant with the name “Acadia Limited“. However, GMC has confirmed production will be ending next week of the full-size CUV. The brand did not give us a set date but did say the production will cease by the end of the first quarter. Quarter one ends March 31, 2017.
http://driving.ca - The Vancouver show always does a great job of displaying the classic cars from the past. But increasingly the show is peeking into the future of automotive design and technology thanks to concept vehicles.
