  • Chevrolet already has one of the widest ranges of small cars on the market, with the the Cruze compact sedan, the Sonic subcompact small-car family, and the Spark minicar. Now the little Trax crossover, which is closely related to the Buick Encore—and, by extension, the Chevy Sonic—is on its way to grab an even larger...

  • We imagine the conversation among Chevrolet's product planners that led to a greenlight for a US-spec Chevrolet Trax went something like this: "Hey, the Buick Encore is selling like mad. It's proven that people love subcompact crossovers. Quick, let's import a vehicle from Canada." Okay, so it probably didn't go quite like that, but it seems logical that the US arrival of the Trax - which has been on sale in the Great White North and other markets since late 2012 - had a lot to do with the...

  • The owners of a Chevrolet Corvette and a Chevrolet Sonic will soon have something in common beyond the “bow-tie” emblem on their vehicles: each can wait to change a flat.

  • Put your pouty faces on American enthusiasts, because there's yet another European hot hatch that won't be making a trek across the pond. This is the new Vauxhall Adam S, a "close-to-production" version of the adorable Adam city car, which is also sold in continental Europe as an Opel. With the Adam S, Vauxhall has taken the standard car's naturally aspirated 1.4-liter engine and slapped a turbocharger on it to make 148 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque.

    Pros: It's hard to make a case for the 2014 Scion xD beyond its convenient hatchback configuration, unless your main concern is reliability (which all Toyota-derived products boast) or you want a huge selection of dealer-installed accessories to customize your ride. Cons: The reality is that the Scion xD is little more than a Toyota Yaris in disguise. Technology is dated, and the driving experience fails to provide any type of thrills. The cheap interior looks and feels poorly designed and...
