A small fleet of ForTwo Electric Drives lined up in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The electric Smart starts at $25,750

In an automotive world where many vehicles look too much alike, the Smart ForTwo stands out. Like a baby shoe surrounded by sneakers, wingtips, and cowboy boots, the Smart’s diminutive size almost always elicits a smile. But just like that baby shoe, it really doesn’t fit the needs of most American buyers.

2016 Buick Cascada

 Buick returns to the ragtop market after a 25-year absence with the 2016 Cascada, a compact-sized four-seater with a power-folding soft top. It’s due on sale next month at a starting price of about $34,000.

When it goes on sale in February, the Cascada will be the first convertible to grace Buick showrooms in nearly a quarter of a century. So why would the company return to a market it had long since abandoned? There are a couple of reasons.

2015 Mitsubishi Mirage ES

Tom was shooting for 40 mpg, and saw 50. He succeeded, but it wasn’t pretty.

I don’t fit in the Mitsubishi Mirage. I mention this because I want to fully paint the picture of a man on a mission. The mission, in this case, was to break 40 mpg in a non-diesel, non-hybridized test vehicle.

Ponitac Torrent GXP, Worst Vehicles

2008 Pontiac Torrent GXP

In 2015, there are no truly bad new cars. You can argue the veracity of that statement if you wish, but at no point in automotive history has it been harder to pick a car you might call “bad.” Sure, the current-generation Mitsubishi Mirage has its detractors, and not without cause, but what would you say is the 2nd-worst car?

If you’re confused by all the new automatic-transmission types now available, you’re not alone. This Toyota Prius shift lever manipulates a type of continuously variable transmission (CVT).

Automatic transmissions have gone through many changes since being introduced by Oldsmobile for 1940, but rarely have there been as many different types offered as there are today. Following are technical descriptions of the four basic types that have been used of late, but if you prefer to simply know how they might affect the driving experience, just skip down to the “On the Road” section.

Do you know why this Porsche engine is extreme?

It’s something car guys might sit around and debate: the first of this, the biggest of that, the smallest of something else. And that’s just how this list got started. While discussing something entirely unrelated with Publisher Tom Appel and Collectible Automobile chief John Biel, we ventured off topic (not an altogether unusual occurrence when the current topic isn’t cars) and ended up brainstorming this list. Being as the session took place just before lunch – and was thus foreshortened by same – we encourage correction if you beg to differ.

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive is available in select locations starting at $42,375 including a $925 destination charge.

When the Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive goes on sale in the U.S. this summer, some might see it as not only the first appearance of the company’s B-Class “tall wagon” in this country (it’s in its second generation in Europe), but also the company’s first electric vehicle to be sold here. Technically, neither is true, but the car still stands as a landmark vehicle for the German manufacturer.

matte finish paint, Veloster Matte Gray Paint Option

2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo with Matte Gray paint

The new-for-2013 Veloster Turbo adds some much-needed horsepower to the flashy-but-slow base Veloster, Hyundai’s genre-bending compact hatchback that debuted for 2012. As is customary for performance variants of regular-line vehicles, the Veloster Turbo gets a few exclusive appearance features that give it a racier look than its naturally aspirated sibling. Up front is a unique fascia with a larger grille and round fog lights, along with standard projector-beam headlights with LED accents. The rocker panels sport “ground effects” side sills, and the Turbo-exclusive rearview mirrors have integral LED turn-signal indicators. A roof-mounted body-color spoiler, LED taillights, and unique rear fascia with a diffuser and oversize exhaust tips bring up the rear.

Exotic Car Rental

The Mercedes-Benz SL550 is among the special vehicles available for rent in the Enterprise Exotic Car Collection.

The term “rental car” usually conjures images of ordinary 4-door sedans, SUVs, and minivans used simply as a means of conveyance by business travelers or people on vacation.
