    The Mazda CX-5 is in a class by itself. The Mazda CX-5 received the highest score. (IIHS) The compact SUV was the only one of 20 models in its class that earned a Good rating on a new test developed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The private organization recently created a more stringent side-impact test that caught out all of the other vehicles. It simulates a midsize SUV T-boning a vehicle at 37 mph, compared to a a compact car traveling at 31 mph in the current test. "We developed this new test because we suspected there was room for more progress, and these results confirm that," IIHS President David Harkey says. "The good rating for the CX-5 shows that robust protection in a more severe side crash is achievable." The Honda HR-V was rated Poor in the side impact test. (IIHS) The Honda HR-V and Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross were the only two vehicles to receive the lowest Poor rating, but eight others were deemed marginal, while the remaining nine were rated Acceptable.

    Toyota has beefed up its award-winning Yaris to grab a larger slice of the growing and lucrative small SUV and crossover market. And this week I road-tested the new Yaris Cross, a jacked-up version of the Yaris super-mini, currently European Car of the Year.  Priced from £22,515 for the entry level Icon trim-level, the Cross derivative is impressive, too, great for cruising around town and country.  The car I drove on a return trip to the South Coast was the fully-stocked Premiere Edition with front-wheel drive costing £28,185. The top-range all-wheel drive version is £30,545. But its biggest seller is expected to be the mid-spec Design trim from £24,140.  Mightier mini: Toyota's new Yaris Cross hybrid is based on a proven winner Powered by a frugally efficient but willing 3-cylinder 1.5 litre hybrid set up with a continuously variable (CVT) automatic t­ransmission, my car had 114bhp of power (of which 79bhp comes from the electric motor) that drove it from rest to 62mph in 11.2 seconds up to a top speed of 106mph.  There are three drive modes: eco, normal and...
    The Fiat pulse It is one of the most interesting cars in Fiat right now. Although in Europe its range is veteran and many of its models need an urgent renovation, in Latin America it has just expanded considerably thanks to the Fiat Pulse. Is about a small urban crossover, which competes on the terrain that the Fiat 500X occupies in Europe. Its orientation is slightly low-cost and has been developed in Brazil, with Latin America as its main market. All in all, we think it should be sold in Europe. Its design is similar to that of the Fiat Strada, a small compact pick-up based on a touring architecture. Its design is certainly similar, with a split-optic front. Its look is modern, with a large grille and the Fiat name in a central position, as well as large LED headlights. The car has a very crossover look, with large protections for its wheel arches and a front bumper that mimics the presence of a skid plate. The shape of the C-pillar reminds me slightly of that of the...
    To those who do not believe that a car can be something aspirational there is nothing but to explain the SUV phenomenon, and how that acronym has been indiscriminately given to virtually anyone with some clearance to the ground, to prove it. And an upcoming Hyundai model would be a great example of that. Spy images taken by bobaedream.kr on some road in South Korea show a small, very small SUV, in full camouflage during some road tests. According to the Gaadi Waadi portal, it would be the Hyundai Casper, a future SUV that in addition to competing in its local market would also do so in India. Hyundai Casper, spy photo: bobaedream.kr Although in principle its name would make us think that it would be because it will be a ‘friendly’ car, like a certain character on the big and small screen, in reality it would be a word derived from Aramaic that means Treasurer. Anyway, it is said that would share the K1 platform with the Grand i10 Nios and would be around 3.6 meters long...

The company said on Feb. 3 that all three would shut down for a week due to the microchip shortage.

Redesigned completely for 2021, the GLA 250 (base price: $36,230) looks like a cross between a small SUV such as a Toyota RAV4 and a small sedan such as a Honda Civic, only souped up with lots of Mercedes luxury and performance.

    California police arrested 54-year-old Hung Nguyen (pictured) who was suspected of drunk driving when he smashed his SUV into parked planes at a small airport on Saturday California police arrested a 54-year-old man suspected of drunk driving after he crashed his SUV into parked planes at an airport over the weekend.  Hung Nguyen was taken into custody Saturday evening when deputies from the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office responded to reports of a collision at the Reid-Hillview Airport in San Jose.  According to police, the incident occurred around 4.45pm when Nguyen was heading down Cunningham Avenue in his midsize SUV.  While driving east, authorities said he went through two fences and across two runways before striking a small parked plane.  That collision created a domino effect that caused damage to two more parked planes. Images from the incident also show the wall of a hangar that was torn down due to the impact from the crash.  Another photo showed a parked car that appeared to suffer some damage from the hangar wall.   While driving east, authorities said he went...
    Fantasy Football Podcast: Stat trends we love and hate to see — Projecting Mecole Hardman and whats up with Zach Ertz? Not Just Amazon: Prime Day Deals From Walmart, Target, and More VW Crushed the Iconic Beetle to Make Room for This Small SUV (Bloomberg) -- Automakers are so eager to replace less-lucrative cars with higher-margin SUVs, they’re willing to scrap iconic nameplates along the way. Load Error Volkswagen AG’s newest North American model, the Taos, is perhaps the starkest example of this yet. The German automaker made room to manufacture the compact sport utility vehicle in its Mexican assembly plant by ceasing production of the Beetle, one of the most influential cars of the 20th century. For automotive product planners, the decision making is simple. The ebb toward crossovers and away from sedans has been relentless, helping put SUVs and trucks on course to seize more than 70% of the U.S. market this year. Crossovers also are a better bang for automakers’ buck -- consumers are willing to pay up for the higher ride height and roomier...
    An asteroid the size of an SUV flew closer to the Earth than any other space rock on record Sunday morning — but luckily did not make impact with the planet, NASA said. The asteroid — dubbed 2020 QG — whizzed by at a clip of 8 miles per second about 1,830 miles over the southern Indian Ocean. About 20 feet long, the asteroid wasn’t noticed until about six hours after passing by the planet at its closest point, the federal agency said. The rock was captured by a California sky-scanning survey telescope funded by NASA and the National Science Foundation. “It’s really cool to see a small asteroid come by this close, because we can see the Earth’s gravity dramatically bend its trajectory,” said Paul Chodas, director of NASA’s Center for Near-Earth Object Studies. “Our calculations show that this asteroid got turned by 45 degrees or so as it swung by our planet.” Many asteroids the size of 2020 QG impact earth annually, but usually become fireballs and break up once entering the planet’s atmosphere. Most small space...

    DETROIT (AP) — There’s a lot riding on the Nissan Rogue, the struggling Japanese automaker’s top-selling vehicle in the hottest part of its second-biggest market, the United States. The small SUV has been redesigned for the 2021 model year, and a replacement can’t come fast enough for a company battered by falling sales, mounting losses, a financial scandal and a model lineup that many U.S. consumers don’t find appealing. Throw in a global pandemic, and you’ve got a showroom of trouble. Enter the revamped Rogue, a vehicle that Nissan executives say is the foundation of the company’s U.S. model lineup and critical to its turnaround. “They do have to hit it right,” said Glenn Mears, owner of Nissan dealerships in Canton and Dover, Ohio. “Everybody has to have that vehicle nowadays. When people are drifting over from cars, that’s what they have to have.” Last year, Nissan’s U.S. sales were down nearly 10% due largely to an aging model lineup and a tarnished reputation from the 2018 arrest of former star CEO Carlos Ghosn on financial misconduct allegations.
