2015 Volkswagen Golf

Watch this 124-MPH Car Crash Where No Humans Were Harmed, Or Even Involved

Switzerland's Dynamic Test Center is crash-porn central.

The sight of a car crashing into a stationary car with untrammeled velocity is a devastating sight and enough to convince all drivers to take necessary caution on the road. And, that is the intention of Dynamic Test Center, who videotaped the crash for its YouTube page.

The Upcoming Mercedes-AMG DTM Car Is Somehow Even Meaner Than Before

Next year's DTM season cannot come soon enough.

Next year will be a big one for Mercedes-AMG and its participation in the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM) European racing series. It's rolling out an all-new DTM car to do battle with a very competitive field. Just like the last one, this new DTM car will be modeled after the Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe, but, after taking a look at the sketches, it looks far more aggressive than any street car could be.

Uber Hires Jeep Hackers to Help Build Self-Driving Fleet

Miller and Valasek join Autonomous Car Lab in Pittsburgh.

Despite recent legal complications, ride-sharing company Uber is continuing to invest heavily in its future, as well as the future of self-driving car technology. Uber has made no secret of its plan to replace human drivers with self-driving cars, but recent incidents of high-profile connected-car hacks have made security a top priority.

A Dream Deferred: Honda Won't Bring the S660 to the United States After All

It wasn't that important, but damn it, we still wanted one.

Honda is on the verge of a performance renaissance in the United States. After a decade or so of beige cars that can be vaguely described as "sporty," the Japanese automaker is once again going to focus on what made its old cars great-driving excitement. There were rumors that one specific Japanese model would come our way as part of this rebirth - the S660 roadster - but now, we've learned that our open-top dreams have been deferred.

The Oshkosh Defense L-ATV Is the Official Replacement for the Humvee

This is where billions of your tax dollars will soon go.

The Humvee is the quintessential military vehicle. Before becoming a passenger car for some strange reason, the AM General HMMWV (High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle) was the ride of choice for America's troops in overseas conflicts. But it's getting old, so the government sought out a replacement. Now, we know what that replacement is - say hello to the Oshkosh Defense L-ATV.

The 2016 Ford Explorer Platinum Gets a Premium Hi-Fi Sound System

Technology used to recreate acoustics of European concert halls.

The Ford Explorer has been around so long that it can actually use nostalgia to help revive sales now that gas is relatively cheap and people aren't ashamed to buy SUVs anymore. The Explorer weathered dismal sales in the post-recession 2000s and now, with its new Platinum Edition, the Explorer is being repositioned as a luxury SUV, thanks in part to its new Sony premium entertainment system.

Bang for Your Buck: 2015 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Shaker vs. the Used-Car Market

Checking out a new car's competition from the used-car market.

It's no surprise that buyers often compare both new and used cars. For a given price point, the market for potential cars explodes once you start looking away from new cars alone. Sure, you might give up the warranty, but if you're looking for something unique, used cars provide a good value ... provided you pick the right one. Bang for Your Buck takes a look at five used cars you could get with the money you'd spend on the new car we've tested recently.

The 2016 Subaru BRZ Heads to Dealerships With a Cheaper Price Tag

It's not much, but the fact that the price dropped at all is great.

The Subaru BRZ has always been the slightly more accessible version of the Scion FR-S. The BRZ's suspension is tuned for less oversteer, and there are far more creature comforts and new pieces of technology in the Subie. Of course, that's always made it slightly more expensive than the FR-S, but thanks to a small price drop for the 2016 model year, it's still more expensive, just slightly less so.

2010 vs 2015: The Modern Twist on the Classic American Muscle Car - the Dodge Challenger

Dodge rolled into its second century bringing out the big guns.

What have the last five years done to our favorite rides? If you're in the market for a new vehicle, it might be prudent to take a look at some previous model years. We all know that cars depreciate as soon as they're driven off the lot, but how much do they depreciate after half-a-decade? Are there options you simply can't live without today, that weren't available five years ago?

GALLERY: The New Smart ForTwo Cabrio Is Three Cars In One, Only Not Really

Daimler-made micro car to feature unique "tri-top" technology.

Smart, makers of the ForTwo city car, those sawed-off-looking cars that, despite their incredible practicality for urbanites, are just plain funny looking, no matter how you slice it. With a few clever improvements to its cabrio design, however, it might be the best FourTwo yet.

The New Marketing: FCA Gets 2.5 Billion YouTube Views, Kind Of

Car makers can't rely on advertisement alone, must go online.

Do you remember the last time you watched a TV commercial? If you do, you're either a Hulu subscriber, one of the 200 million Americans who don't subscribe to cable TV, or you're over the age of 25. According to an article, "Youth as a whole are watching less TV - and the decline appears to be accelerating." the drop-off in viewing by the 18-24 demo isn't showing any signs of reversing."

Advanced features keep Lincoln drivers from hurting themselves.

Ford's luxury brand is trying to find its place in an ever-more crowded luxury market. As less-than-premium-priced luxury cars, Lincoln needs to find its niche.
