GM sure thinks I am, this new Chevy Trax combines the high center of gravity, compromised interior space and crappy driving dynamics of an SUV with the styling of a Transformers movie. » 5/15/12 10:00am 5/15/12 10:00am

Nissan has issued the first pictures of its new seven-seater crossover vehicle that takes the Qashqai and cranks the knob up by "+2."

Was Ist Das? Neue Photos of The Audi Q5

We were so busy with the Q7 review, it seems the newly minted Autobild artists renditions slipped right by us. Our German is rusty (more like seized up) so we're going to treat these with kid gloves, but it looks like a new interpretation of details on the BMW X3 fighter. Even though some of these images are really… » 2/15/08 9:30am 2/15/08 9:30am

MINI Crossover To Be Named Monte Crossman

In an interview with Auto Motor und Sport, MINI CEO Kay Segler let it slip that the new MINI crossover/SUV will be called the Crossman, and not the Mini Monte as we'd all kind of hoped it would be.

The Ford Edge Likes To Live On The Edge-Uh...Of Fast-Uh

This Is Our Country, This Is Our Chevy Crossover

Chevy's kind of been the odd man out in the game of Lambda-platform musical chairs. With Saturn, Buick and even GMC getting into the crossover game with the newest Car-UV frame it seems like the brand name that's all about bringing value to the people doesn't yet have a seat in GM's people carrier.

Kicking Tires Kicks The Tires On Saturn's New Vue

Although we weren't "lucky enough" to get a first drive of the new Opel Saturn Antara Vue, we're able to rely on the crazy kids at the site all about a Gary Numan song to show us what we're "missing." Rabbi Dave over at their blog, Kicking Tires, got a chance to whip one around for a bit, so until we get a chance in… » 5/18/07 9:00am 5/18/07 9:00am
