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

    Dallas, Texas, is as awash with oil money as it ever was—but now Plano, a city in the Dallas metroplex, is home to Toyota Motor North America’s headquarters. What vehicle better to epitomize the confluence of Dallas, Toyota, and Texas-sized, well, anything than a Lexus LX570? We can’t think of anything else either. On a...

    SCOTTSDALE, Arizona—For so many SUVs, or would-be SUVs, diminishing their size has meant diminishing returns. At least, for customers. By the time you option up a bite-sized crossover, you realize it would have been smarter to move up one size, to an SUV that’s demonstrably more useful for people and their proliferating stuff for similar...

    It was with more than the usual “new test car on the way!” anticipation that I awaited the arrival of Audi’s all-electric e-tron SUV in my driveway. After all, for years the German makers have been largely left behind in the EV arena by the likes of Tesla, Nissan, Chevrolet, and, more recently, Jaguar’s sleek...

    Bring up General Motors’ cutting-edge EV1 electric car from the 1990s, and likely someone nearby will blurt out something about how GM was in cahoots with the oil industry to kill the electric car when it sent every EV1 it made to the crusher. See, the cars were mostly only available for lease in certain...

    The Suzuka Sound of Engine event is arguably one of the best—if not the best—annual events on the annual Japanese motoring calendar, and it’s the one I look forward to the most each year. The Sound of Engine is a relatively new phenomenon, having been started in 2014, but each year it’s attracted more spectators...
