automobile : of, relating to, or concerned with self-propelled vehicles or machines (typically on land) — Webster

OneLook, Free Dictionary, Wiktionary, Urban Dictionary


Roget’s II (, Merriam-Webster Thesaurus, Visuwords


Car is a wheeled, self-powered motor vehicle used for transportation and a product of the automotive industry. Most definitions of the term specify that cars are designed to run primarily on roads, to have seating for one to eight people, to typically have four wheels with tires, and to be constructed principally for the transport of people rather than goods. The year 1886 is regarded as the birth year of the modern car. In that year, German inventor Karl Benz built the Benz Patent-Motorwagen. Cars did not become widely available until the early 20th century. One of the first cars that was accessible to the masses was the 1908 Model T, an American car manufactured by the Ford Motor Company. Cars were rapidly adopted in the United States of America, where they replaced animal-drawn carriages and carts, but took much longer to be accepted in Western Europe and other parts of the world. — Wikipedia

    Just because the Honda Civic is the best-selling compact in the U.S.—above the Toyota Corolla and others—doesn’t mean Honda has always had a Midas touch with the model. Plenty of Civic variants have come and gone over the nameplate’s four decades in production. So after you check out the state of new Civics—you can check...

    DEARBORN, Michigan—Ford Motor Company has committed to spending more than $11 billion on electric-vehicle development by 2022, but its bigger, more high-profile green-car effort centers on the Explorer and Police Interceptor Utility hybrids, as well as the hybrid and plug-in-hybrid variants of the all-new Escape coming later this year.

    In the first quarter of 2019, Chevy moved 33,494 copies of the Colorado, a 16 percent year-over-year increase. That’s a promising start to 2019. But beyond those stellar sales figures, a question of significant value to consumers lingered in my mind during this test: How safe is it? It’s not a question we often consider...

    About a year ago, Genesis revealed the stunning Essentia, a car we subsequently named our Concept of the Year. Then, in September, we learned that Genesis plans to actually build a limited run of production versions. That alone was exciting news, but Hyundai’s latest announcement opens the door to the possibility of the production Essentia...
