Living On And Off Road With The 2015 Chevy Colorado And GMC Canyon

Sometimes I feel like a shitty Texan because I'm not a truck guy. I don't normally have much use for huge trucks and I don't really enjoy driving them. I'd rather do a track day in some hot hatch or cheap sports car than go off-roading. But after two weeks of driving a 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon back to… » 3/26/15 4:16pm Thursday 4:16pm

The Ford Focus ST Is Fun Even When You Have A McLaren In Your Garage

You might think that with the unusual circumstance of having a McLaren 650S in my garage, I would have no time for a humble hatchback that costs about a tenth its price. Not so, when the hatchback in question is the Ford Focus ST. Need a fun normal car for when you’re not in your supercar? Here’s a great choice. » 3/24/15 3:00pm Tuesday 3:00pm

Mercedes-Benz GLA45 AMG: The Jalopnik Review

Mercedes has decided that America won't accept the same A-Class small hatchback that anchors their lineup around the world. However, they do think you'd like the GLA-Class, a small hatchback with slightly more ground clearance. But what you really want is the GLA45, a nutjob rally-hatch monster that makes no sense and… » 3/20/15 12:24pm 3/20/15 12:24pm

2015 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible R-Line: The Jalopnik Review

No car has transformed as radically over the course of its nameplate as the Volkswagen Beetle. It started life as a plebeian, practical family car with the engine in the back driven by Germans and then hippies and then crazy people, and then it morphed into a super cute front-wheel drive premium lifestyle accessory in… » 3/18/15 2:00pm 3/18/15 2:00pm

I Was A Fast & Furious Virgin Until I Saw Furious 7 Last Night

I'd never seen a Fast And Furious film before last night's surprise premiere of Furious 7 at Austin's SXSW, but I'd seen enough clips that I thought I knew what to expect. Nope. There were way more cars flying out of planes than I'd imagined and The Rock and Jason Statham fight in a room full of windows. It was… » 3/16/15 10:21am 3/16/15 10:21am

2015 VW Golf SportWagen: The Diesel Manual Wagon Is Alive In America!

1972 Citroën DS Break: The Jalopnik Classic Review

I'll admit, when I moved to Chapel Hill, NC from LA last year, I was pretty despondent about leaving LA's amazing carscape. I'm delighted to say that I was more pessimistic than I needed to be. This was proven conclusively when I passed a house, not five minutes from my own, that was infested with Citroëns. Seeing… » 2/18/15 2:34pm 2/18/15 2:34pm

What It's Like To Drive The Greatest Soviet Car Of All Time

Before I went to Iceland to review the Land Rover Discovery Sport, I had one goal in mind: drive a Lada. I've always been fascinated by the old Soviet-bloc cars, and I've hardly ever even seen one in person. I knew Iceland had some, and thanks to the good people at Geysir Car Rental, my inane dream was made an inane… » 2/02/15 3:55pm 2/02/15 3:55pm
