2018 Tesla Model 3 unveiled

2018 Tesla Model 3 unveiled
Some 400,000 of you out there are eagerly awaiting the day when you can take the wheel of your shiny new Tesla Model 3, but you're going to have to wait a little bit longer. The first full-production version of that car has just rolled off the assembly line, and it's destined for the garage of Tesla CEO Elon Musk himself.

The Model 3 is Tesla's first proper mass-produced car, with a production volume goal of 500,000 units in 2018. That's a very aggressive ramp-up from the approximately 85,000 cars the company sold in 2016. Helping that volume is a much simpler design for the Model 3 than either the Model S or Model X that came before, and helping demand is the price: around $35,000.

2018 Volkswagen Polo offers forbidden fruit in many forms

Volkswagen has offered its miniature Polo hatchback in Europe since 1975. Now in its sixth generation, the 2018 Polo grows a bit, both in terms of its physical size and what it brings to the table.

Like many other new cars, the Polo is slightly larger than before -- it's now about the same size as a fourth-generation VW Golf from 1997. Its look is pretty close to the Golf's, albeit with a more tapered rear end and a front fascia that looks a little more squished.

Honda Civic VTi hatch 2017 review

After a brief pause - and in the quiet before Honda's new CR-V breaks cover - the Japanese company has presented us with the hatchback version of the old-stager. Like the sedan, it's pretty much new from the ground up and has a set of very silly tail-lights. Don't let that second thing put you off, though.

2017 Suzuki Swift - Crash test

he passenger compartment of the Swift remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs for both the driver and passenger. Suzuki showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. In the full-width rigid barrier test, protection of the chest was marginal, both for the driver and the rear seat passenger. Otherwise, protection of critical body areas was rated a good or adequate. The Swift scored maximum points in both the side barrier test and the more severe side pole impact, with good protection of all critical body regions. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision. However, a geometric assessment of the rear seats indicated poor whiplash protection for occupants in those seating positions. The Swift has, as part of its 'Radar Brake Support' option pack, autonomous.
emergency braking. The system works at the low speeds, typical of city driving, at which many whiplash injuries are caused and, in tests of this functionality, the system performed adequately.


In the frontal offset test, readings from the 6 year dummy indicated poor chest protection and weak protection of the neck. For the 10 year dummy, neck protection was marginal. In the side barrier test, decelerations in the chest indicated poor protection of the 10 year dummy. Protection in this test was, otherwise, good. The front passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded. All of the restraint types for the which the Swift is designed could be properly installed and accommodated.


The protection provided by the bonnet to the head of a struck pedestrian was predominantly good or adequate, with poor results recorded on the stiff windscreen pillars. The bumper scored maximum points, offering good protection to pedestrians' legs at all test locations. Protection of the pelvis was predominantly good but some weak and poor results were also recorded.


The Swift has, as standard, as seatbelt reminder system for the front and rear seats. Autonomous emergency braking is included in the 'Radar Brake Support' option pack. Tests of its functionality at highway speeds showed good performance. A driver-set speed limiter is available as an option, separate from the pack.

Nissan today announced the donation of a specially created 2017 Nissan GT-R supercar to the Nashville Predators Foundation, which supports a variety of local Nashville charities. The $109,990 GT-R Premium model is custom-painted in Preds’ official colors and graphics. The special Nissan GT-R will be the main attraction in an upcoming Predators Foundation fundraising auction that was also announced today.

"Nissan is proud to call the great city of Nashville home for our North American headquarters – and we are thrilled that our hometown Predators have come so far this season," said José Muñoz, Chief Performance Officer, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd.; Chairman, Nissan North America, Inc.

Also included with the auction prize are two 2017-18 season tickets and a parking pass for the Sixth Avenue Garage to help you continue supporting the Western Conference Final Champion Predators!

"Today, Nissan is making the largest one-time contribution to the Nashville Predators Foundation and with that, giving one lucky bidder the opportunity to show off their Preds Pride every time they drive Predzilla," said Predators President and Chief Executive Officer Sean Henry. "Not only is this one-of-a-kind car going to be the envy around Smashville, it will also benefit many local charitable and community service organizations through the winning bid. With Nissan’s support for our community and passion for our team, we get to reach thousands more individuals all across Tennessee."
