'All-wheel drive' and 'four-wheel drive' are often used interchangeably. In reality, they are very different vehicles and it depends on whether power is sent to the front or rear of a vehicle. Here's a professional rally driver explaining the difference between these two ever-more confused terms.
Sports cars are often the dream but the reality for those wanting something affordable and sassy often results in a more sensible hatchback. But since it first arrived in 2012 the Hyundai Veloster has aimed to create an affordable bridge between the two. Its quirky layout looks more coupe on one side with hints of hatch down the other. The second-generation Veloster evolves the formula while stepping up safety and performance. Here are five things you need to know.
This is something that I've been lucky enough to see on some prototypes, but it's more than a little valuable for the public to get a sense of what a self-driving car "sees" when driving down the road. In this case, we have one of Waymo's test cars predicting the path of a cyclist before a crash might even happen.
I'm feeling pretty validated, today. The International Journal of Psychology has released the findings of a recent study that confirm jerks much prefer luxury cars — specifically BMW, Mercedes and Audis. Hence why it feels like every BMW driver is driving egregiously above the speed limit.
There are issues inherent with hydrogen as a fuel for cars. It is incredibly expensive and energy intensive to create, it is difficult to pressurise and transport, and the infrastructure for hydrogen as fuel is far less developed than battery electric charging. A few automotive manufacturers, chiefly Honda and Toyota, have hung their zero emissions program hat on the hydrogen peg, but it's still a very small sliver of the automotive market. As a car fuel, hydrogen straight up sucks. But boats are another story.
