    Hyundai i30 N

    It's pretty similar specwise to the Peugeot 308 GTI by PS, only that the french car already has a proper diff. It will have to be seen if the Hyundai handles as well as the Peugeot.

    No, they basically rebadged Toyota japanese models as Lexus for the rest of the world:

    Saw a Fiat 124 Spider in the flesh for the first time yesterday, I think pictures don't do it justice.

    GM Considering Sale of Opel to Peugeot

    Is there really that much of a difference between for instance a 208/Corsa/Fiesta/Polo or a 308/Astra/Focus/Golf?

    Unveiled: 2017 Lexus LS

    They've been using that same solution since the LF-A. Although it looks like as if they took inspiration from some old Citro?n, which it's not something bad.

    New Ford GT named "Ford Phoenix" V6 Ecoboost

    Aren't we slightly missing the point here...discussing fuel consumption figures on a supercar thread?

    Got a Bclass with a diesel engine and an automatic gearbox as a rental for a trip with some friends at the beginning of this week. As a passenger, I was really surprised by its lack of refinement, a lot of road and wind noise and a suspension that would not absorb too much in "Comfort" mode and...

    Aside from the Superb, Skoda and Seat basically sell the same cars with different 'skins'. Well, maybe the Fabia sits on an older platform than the Ibiza, but I'm not sure about that...

    Volkswagen is in trouble with just about everybody on the f'ing planet

    Thing is, if the homologation tests replicated real street use, all the cars homologated would give the same results as in those reports, all except the vehicules from one manufacturer....

    Volkswagen is in trouble with just about everybody on the f'ing planet

    If customers in their homecountry are really that retarded surely their beloved brand won't have any problem screwing them in any other areas in the future. They almost seem happy about it!

    I think all this mess ought to be solved the german way. If they are not severly punished they will never learn a lesson. If people have to suffer so be it, but a lesson has to be taught so that this is not to be repeated in the future.

    Would have you said the same if VW was a company from the south of Europe? That's very typical of Germans, they are extremely hard with other people's faults but they never, absolutely never, accept to take any responsability for their own faults.

    The European Refugee Situation

    It's not going to happen, it hasn't really happened with Turkish people after all this time, it's not going to happen with the people who are entering Germany now. They'll live in ghettos (even after/if they leave the containers where the refugees are placed), live off minijobs/subsidies and...
