In 2013 Honda showed up at the motor shows with a new concept for a minivan that was then called the Concept M. This was expected to be a new van model that would be used for the Chinese market for 2014 but that year has come and gone and no van named or looking like the Concept M has made it to production as of yet. As a dynamic (at least for the minivan world) model the Concept M seemed to be one that would be great for any market to enjoy.
The new Camaro enters into a new generation and looks to impress us, but how? If you look at the new Camaro you see a styling that is extremely similar to the outgoing model and you notice the new one has a bit of a shorter wheelbase, but for all intents and purposes the car looks the same as it did in 2015. That doesn’t sound good for a new model of own of our favorite sports cars, but the Camaro team at Chevrolet stated the style of the car was not something that consumers asked to have changed, so they didn’t.

What you need to be able to do this is a vehicle with the versatility to handle every task, but also one that provides you with the fuel mileage you need; here are several that fit the bill in 2016 as your next family hauler.
Does speed matter in an SUV? It seems to for the Bentley team and the founder of Bentley, Ettore Bugatti himself once said the company had the world’s fastest truck. Somehow those words were somewhat prophetic because his company has now built an SUV, the Bentayga which offers a top speed of 187 mph which is the highest for any SUV. Of course Bentley would have the top speed on record for an SUV, it seems they wouldn’t have it any other way and want their customers to choose their Bentayga as the vehicle of choice when the weather turns foul.

As technology advances in our vehicles some of us might feel the improvements of some items have gone too far. In many vehicles the only way to t control a function such as the climate is through the use of a touchscreen in the center of the dashboard. If you have ever inadvertently swiped the screen and the results were not desirable you know the frustration of this technology and may have even longed for the dials and knobs of old that at least gave you singular and completely understood results from your output. While this may seem like a small problem, the reality is those of us who don’t trust the touchscreens in our vehicles often take our eyes off the road in order to adjust the function we desire.

Many might have thought the car would not catch on, but the Prius simply was the first of many hybrid cars that have now become a certainty and shown a use for the hybrid powertrain in almost every type of car or truck model you can think of.

When you look at all the vehicles on the road today the one segment that has grown faster than any other is the SUV segment. More of us are buying these vehicles than ever before and who can blame us. Many compact SUVs are now built to drive like cars but offer the versatility we want from a great SUV. The favorite among them seems to be the Honda CR-V and it really shouldn’t come as any surprise. While others may boast about their off road capabilities the CR-V continues to be the most comfortable and driver oriented ride on the market to be the right choice for more drivers than any other.
