Mazda is known as one of those car manufacturers that like to do things a bit differently. From their use of rotary engines for their flagship sports cars and emphasis on perfect weight distribution to their elegant, quirky design, and refusal to give in to the downsizing trend. The CX-30 is one of the latest entries in Mazda’s lineup. It is a sub-compact crossover which places it in the same niche as the CX-3. Wouldn’t two offerings of the same segment create an internal competition? Not exactly. Thehe CX-3 is aimed at the entry-level sub-compact crossover segment, where it would go up against the likes of Chevrolet Trax, Ford EcoSport, and Nissan Kicks. At the same time, the CX-30’s goal is to steal clients from the likes of Honda HR-V, Nissan Rogue, and Subaru Crosstrek – models that represent the higher echelon of the sub-compact crossover segment. So, does it have what it takes?
The SSC Tuatara May Have Set a New World Top Speed Record
After nine years of development, the SSC Tuatara finally went into production in 2020, with the first customer car showcased in February. Ever since it started working on the Tuatara, SSC said it will attempt a Guinness Book top speed record for production cars. And it seems it might have already happened.
Car For Sale: BRAND-NEW R34 Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec II Nur
If you’re a fan of the Nissan GT-R, you can still purchase the current-generation model. It’s 13 years old as of 2020, but it can still hold its own against more modern sports cars and it’s a blast to drive at the track. But if you’re a Skyline GT-R enthusiast, you need to look back on cars built until 2002, when Nissan dropped this badge for the GT-R. Luckily, you can still find a few mint-condition examples out there. Like this R34-generation Skyline GT-R with only 225 miles on the odometer.
Somehow, It Seems That the BMW i8 Is Better Than the Polestar 1
The Polestar 1 and BMW i8 don’t necessarily occupy segments by themselves, but the truth is there aren’t that many performance-spec, two-door plug-in hybrids that command prices amounting to $150,000. So in the absence of comparing the Polestar 1 and BMW i8 with their respective rivals, the folks at Throttle House decided to skip that exercise entirely and compare both two-door plug-in hybrids against each other.
One is a $148,500 German two-door PHEV with futuristic looks while the other is a $155,000 Swedish two-door PHEV that boasts one of the most beautiful designs of any car in the market. How do they stack up against each other? Let’s find out.
Mercedes-Benz EQC 4x4²
Not too long ago, the Mercedes G-Class 4x4² was spotted undergoing high-altitude testing in the Alps, thus confirming the return of the alter-ego version of the luxurious off-roader.
While we were expecting to hear more about it, Mercedes decided to divert our attention from it by introducing a 4×4² concept version of its all-electric SUV, the EQC. To put it simply the EQC 4×4² is the off-road version of the standard EQC. Do we need something like this at a time when Mercedes is still trying to find its feet in the electric segment?
Screw The New Batmobile, We’re More Interested in Bruce Wayne’s 1963 Corvette Stingray Daily Driver
Batman may be driving a jet-powered Batmobile while fighting crime in Gotham City, but Bruce Wayne’s daily driver is actually a vintage Chevrolet Corvette. Robert Pattinson, the actor that will play Batman in the next iteration of the movie (The Batman), was spotted driving a 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray in Liverpool, England, where filming for the upcoming Batman movie is currently taking place.
This Time Lapse of a Homemade Bugatti Is Mind Boggling
The Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo is as much a car as it is a mirage. Born to be raced by gamers in the smash Playstation title Gran Turismo 6, joining many other ’Vision Gran Turismo’ creations from the likes of Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, BMW, Nissan, or Citroen, the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo somehow transcended the world of gaming when Bugatti actually decided to build a running and driving example of it.
With there only being one of these ludicrous-looking,
inspired hypercars out there, crafty mechanic Jack Lee and his team had to make one from scratch and, amazingly, that’s exactly what went down.
2021 Hyundai i30 N
The 2021 Hyundai i30 N is the facelifted version of the high-performance hatchback that the Korean company introduced back in 2017. The mid-cycle refresh doesn’t bring radical changes, but it does improve the car’s exterior design and adds new technology inside the cabin. The 2021 i30 N also comes with a more powerful Performance Package. But is it finally good enough to take on the popular Volkswagen Golf GTI and Ford Focus ST? Does it have what it takes to go against the new-for-2021 BMW 128ti? Let’s find out in the review below.
Zero and Polaris Join Forces for New Off-Road Electric Bikes
That’s right sports fans. This may be the most significant relationship thus far in the race to make electric propulsion a viable alternative to the current internal-combustion engines, specifically within the off-road and non-road sectors. Polaris Inc. and Zero Motorcycles launch a decade-long partnership as a major pillar of the “rEV’d up” campaign, and the first efforts are to produce battery-powered off-road vehicles and snowmobiles.
2021 Indian Vintage
Indian Motorcycle, under the Polaris umbrella, has been on an unprecedented technological upswing for the brand since its relatively recent resurrection, but the Indian Vintage rocks an antique veneer that serves as a reminder of its deep roots. Old-school styling, tan leather, and ample chrome channels yesteryear with a custom bent to finish the package. If you’re into classically designed machines with a genuine pedigree, the 2021 Indian Vintage should definitely be on your short list.
Trump Sign Off the 405 Torn Down by Officials
Mere weeks separate us from the 2020 Presidential Election that sees Democrat candidate, and former Vice President, Joe Biden try to end President Donald Trump’s tenure at the White House. The battle has proven to be fierce, to say the least, but the most recent chapter doesn’t even involve the two candidates directly.
A Trump supporter’s decision to erect a sign that says ’TRUMP’ in big, white letters had local authorities knock on his door within hours due to the sign’s size, location, and proximity to the 405 highway. Trump supporters say it’s a clear case of ’socialism in action’ but there’s little more than meets the eye in this story.
Car for Sale: Unbelievable, Must-See 1986 Toyota MR2
The Mazda Miata MX-5 may be the world’s finest example when it comes to lightweight and affordable sports cars, but it wasn’t the first nameplate to introduce this idea. When Mazda was rolling out the first-gen MX-5 in 1989, Toyota was already selling the MR2 for five years. The nameplate was discontinued back in 2007, but it’s still a cool car to have, especially since it features a mid-mounted engine. If you’re a fan of the MR2, this mint-condition model from 1986 might tickle your fancy.
