  • 2010 Lexus HS 250h

    Every year, some car models pass from our midst, often dying quietly and unnoticed. Here's our list of the green cars that are no longer with us. There were, of course, more cars than just this handful of the greenest models that died in 2012; here's a more complete list. Chevrolet Aveo While the Chevy Aveo nameplate actually left the building after the 2011 model year, Chevrolet will continue to sell subcompacts. But GM's mass brand had to acknowledge that the U.S. image of the Aveo was so underwhelming--most reviewers called it a substandard, cheap, unimpressive car that was long in the...

    2010 Paris Motor Show: Green Car Roundup of Production Models

    The fall's first big European auto show, the 2010 Paris Motor Show, officially kicks off on Thursday, which is when all the press conferences happen. But the industry has been leaking out selected images, teasers, and occasionally full details on the concepts and production cars that will appear...

    GM Steps Up Their Small Car Game With the 2012 Chevrolet Aveo

    Previous models of the Chevrolet Aveo have been a little bit of a disappointment out in the American marketplace. The original was small, had some quality issues and really just wasn’t the much fun to putt around in. The redesign gave the car a boost in the looks department, but really still...

    2012 Chevrolet Aveo: Paris Motor Show Production Version Preview

    The current Chevrolet Aveo never set the world on fire. It filled its place in rental-car ranks and the third-car slot of suburban driveways, but no one ever really got passionate about it. If General Motors has anything to say about it, that's going to change. The production version of the 2012...

    2011 Chevrolet Aveo Shown Sans Disguise; Thanks, Photoshop!

    Some auto writers (not us, truly) have been known to sneer at car forum sites. But we try to monitor the forums regularly, 'cause sometimes you see the darnedest things. Take, for example, this photo of a 2011 Chevrolet Aveo in undisguised form, minus the usual spy-shot camouflage. It comes from...

    First Look At U.S.-Bound 2011 Suzuki Swift

    The small-car band wagon is piling high with automakers, including those from Detroit, with vehicles like the 2011 Ford Fiesta, 2011 Mazda2, and 2011 Chevrolet Aveo either in showrooms already or on their way. Suzuki has recently moved the other way, introducing what many consider to be its first...

  • 2009 Chevrolet Aveo5

    Weary of supporting all the ex-wives of the world's Sheiks, Emirs and Pashas in the manner to which they are accustomed, when my old Chrysler started crying for another transmission I decided to opt for a more economical vehicle. I drove every car sold in California for under $30,000 and on that basis bought a brand new 2009 Chevrolet Aveo5 LT, under the "Cash for Clunkers" program. The "5" designates the hatchback, and with the back seat down, the storage is remarkable. I have carried two guitar amplifiers, three guitars in their cases, two mike stands, a full-sized suitcase and an electric...

    2010 Detroit Auto Show: 2013 Chevrolet Spark

    Yesterday's Chevrolet press conference at the 2010 Detroit Auto Show was a pretty muted affair. While Chevy unveiled one concept car--the Aveo RS--the photos and details had been released several days before, so there seemed to be little real news. The 2011 Chevrolet Cruze was also there, but it...

    Update: Green Cars at the 2010 Detroit Auto Show

    Next month's North American International Auto Show in Detroit promises to be greener than ever before. That's a recognition that more fuel-efficient and smaller cars are a permanent part of the U.S. automotive landscape, but it's also desperation to fill space in a show that's losing exhibitors...

    2010 Detroit Auto Show: 2011 Chevrolet Aveo RS Concept

    The current 2010 Chevrolet Aveo sedan and hatchback, the Korean-built subcompacts that are GM's contenders in that growing segment, are no longer competitive against upcoming entries like the 2011 Ford Fiesta, rated at 30 mpg city, 40 mpg highway. But that will change when a brand-new and entirely...

    2013 Chevrolet Spark: Just Too Small For U.S. Buyers, Or Not?

    We've covered the 2013 Chevrolet Spark a couple of times before, but now there's a drive report of the European version, courtesy of Motor Trend. We're not entirely sure we agree with their conclusion, though. Granted, the Spark is the smallest Chevy ever. But Motor Trend winds up its road test...

  • 2011 Mazda2

    We previewed the upcoming 2011 Mazda2 subcompact a couple of months ago, but now we have more details, along with photos of its updated styling. The five-door hatchback will be officially unveiled in early December, at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The 2011 Mazda Mazda2 will go on sale in the U.S. and Canada late next year. We chatted in New York last week with Robert Davis, Mazda's senior vice-president for quality, research and development, about the Mazda2 and other topics. Styling refreshed Compared to the model launched late in 2007, the styling of the 2011 Mazda Mazda2 has been mildly...

    Mazda will launch its global subcompact, the Mazda2 five-door hatchback, in the US market roughly a year from now. Its first appearance in North America will be at December's 2009 Los Angeles Auto Show. Price is likely to be around $16,000. It is based on the same platform as the eagerly awaited...
