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

  • 2019 New and Future Cars: Volvo V60
    by esegura on August 14, 2018 at 10:00 am

    By Volvo’s own assertion, the 2019 V60 wagon represents the company’s core. Treated to a complete rethink, the all-new wagon is sleek and sexy with clear inspiration from the V90. That sporty styling is more than skin deep, with a new emphasis on chassis dynamics, giving the car better turn-in and a fun-to-drive feel that...

    The Cross Sport is a two-row version of the family-friendly Atlas, as shown at the 2018 New York auto show as a “near-production” concept car. The low fastback roofline works well with the blocky front end, making it look stylish and sexy without rendering the back seat useless. The Cross Sport’s wheelbase is the same...

    In a world where it’s becoming increasingly common for automakers to use turbocharged six-cylinders, we appreciate Chevrolet continuing to offer the Tahoe and Suburban with a 5.3-liter V-8. That said, we’re also quick to admit the 6.2-liter is a more desirable engine. In the Tahoe RST Performance Edition, for example, it gets you an extra 65 hp...

    SEATTLE, Washington — The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas SEL 4Motion occupies a liminal space, as does the site of my testing: the Seattle and Tacoma regions of Washington. VW’s biggest-ever vehicle straddles the threshold of family haulers and full-blown utes with its muscular styling and terrain-selection knob. This area of the Pacific Northwest (PNW) is a...

    We’re certainly looking forward to driving the reborn Ford Bronco, but we have to admit there’s another Ford SUV that has our attention as well. It’s the Escape-sized SUV announced back in March that may or may not be built for actual off-roading. Details on this “baby Bronco” (teased in the above image) have been scarce...

    Cars The British automaker worked out some of the kinks when it reissued its classic coupe. In the early 1960s, Aston Martin built just 75 of its dapper DB4GT racecars. In recreating it, the British automaker worked out some of the kinks of its classic coupe. […]
