When Toyota announced it was going to sell a lightweight, rear-drive sports car—and that it was sending a version to the U.S. badged as a Scion—there was a swell of enthusiast, uh, enthusiasm.

Video: Russian Battle Bot Drives an ATV  Jan 26th, 2015 
Say hello to Russia’s latest battlefield bot. According to Sputnik News, a state-owned site, the robot seen here in a driving demonstration is meant to serve as a sort of field avatar for soldiers.

What We See: This commercial is divided almost equally into two halves. The first shows Katie Couric and Bryant Gumbel’s infamous “What is the internet, anyway?” Today Show clip from 1994. Hard to believe, but a scant two decades ago, even savvy network morning-show anchors didn’t know what the internet—let alone the @ symbol—was. Well, Couric […]

2015 Jeep Renegade: Even Its Pricing Is Small  Jan 26th, 2015 
If there were any doubt that Jeep is going to snuff out the Compass and Patriot compact crossovers, consider the company’s pricing for the new Renegade the final nail in the coffin.

What It Is: A current-generation BMW M5 sedan testing a new feature that’s headed to the next-generation M5: all-wheel drive.
