This will certainly not come as a shock considering the Scion xB’s only update for the 2015 model year was a rearview camera. The Toyota-owned brand announced it will discontinue the boxy xB hatchback at the end of the year. “The xB will be leaving the lineup at the end of the year,” Scion Vice President Doug Murtha told WardsAuto at the 2016 iA and iM media preview. Despite a drop in sales and an announcement in 2012 that there would not be a third-gen...

Toyota is in the midst of relocating its North American headquarters to Plano, TX, on the outskirts of Dallas. It's a huge deal for Toyota, of course, and for northern Texas. But if you don't work for the company or live in the area, it may be of less interest to you personally. Fortunately the Japanese automaker had something more exciting to showcase while it was presenting the plans for its new campus. What you see here is a vehicular mashup the likes of which we've neve...

Set to dwell with more style in the land Down Under, the 2015 Aurion features not just styling upgrades, but also increased safety, sophistication and driver involvement. At least, that's what Toyota would like us to focus on. In case this car looks familiar to you, that's because it's derived from the Toyota Camry. Still, that doesn't mean the Aussies didn't put their own mark on it, now rejuvenating it for the year 2015. Starting with the entry-...

No one ever said that the outgoing A45 AMG was slow with 355hp (360PS) and a 0-100km/h (62mph) time of 4.3 sec, but Mercedes never liked the fact that Audi's RS3 was slightly more powerful and faster.  Stuttgart's engineers went back to the drawing board and with the 2016MY facelift for the entire range of the A-Class hatch, they presented an updated A45 AMG 4MATIC that takes back the title of the "most powerful compact performance model" in the world.&...

Honda’s been slow to bring a small capacity turbocharged diesel engine to market, but now that it has, it wants to convince the rest of the world of its qualities.

The 13,670 km journey will take the Civic Tourer diesel across 24 of the 28 member states of the European Union, setting off in Aa...
