AutoComplete: The Ford GT packs 647 horsepower, 216 mph top speedKia prices the Niro rather low, and the Ford Mustang performs poorly on European crash tests.
Here's what's making news on Road Show. We all knew the Ford GT would be fast, but now we know it's fast. The blue oval has finally released some specs for its super car and the numbers are all good. It's three liter, twin-turbo V6 puts out 647 horsepower. And it screams all the way to 216 miles per hour flying buttresses and all. Now all we need are the keys. Kia's 2017 Niro hybrid is surprisingly inexpensive. The Niro starts at $22,890 in FE trim, which still packs solid standard equipment like power front seats and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The most expensive variant, Niro Touring, is modestly priced at $29,650. That's not a lot of scratch for a hybrid crossover wagon that can beat 50 miles per gallon in the city. Ford's Mustang has a five star rating crash test rating in the US, but it scored an abysmal two star rating out of five in Euro NCAP crash testing. That's the lowest score seen on the test since 2015. Testers noted the Mustang's air bags did not inflate sufficiently to properly restrain occupants. And in another test, rear seat dummies actually slid underneath the seatbelt. Ford hopes to reclaim some of that lost thunder with the revised 2018 model, which hits Europe this summer.
