DETROIT -- Every year in the bitter cold of January, Detroit hosts the North American International Auto Show. The show features every major make of car sold in the US, and is the venue for some of the most important vehicle launches of the year.
Toyota does not intend to build a car based on the FT-1. This concept is purely a signal that Toyota will pursue a more exciting design direction with future cars. Hunter referred to it as Toyota's "spiritual pace car."
The 2015 Honda Fit somehow manages to increase its interior volume, despite being about 2 inches shorter than the current model. This efficient use of space is echoed by its new fuel-efficient Earth Dreams 1.5-liter engine and CVT combo.
Volkswagen calls it a concept, but to us this model looks ready for the road. The BlueMotion concept pushes gasoline engine efficiency to its limits. Using cylinder deactivation and stop-start technology on a low-displacement turbocharged and direct-injected engine, the automaker is able to achieve fuel economy that matches hybrids and diesels.
