Get caught up and ready to get on with the weekend, because it’s hard keeping pace in a digital traffic jam. Bonus: Want to stay up to date on our latest Rare Norm news ? Here’s what you missed while you were away. Mazda unveils another CUV, because why not? Mazda is making room at the crossover family dinner table as its newest, the CX-30 pulls up a chair, fighting for elbow room between the CX-3 and CX5. It bares the latest and most pronounced evolution of the brand’s Kodo design language, with a wide, thin grille and narrow headlights to match. It’s also got power coming from Mazda’s clever new Skyactiv-X engine. We know what you’re wondering: so why didn’t they call it the CX-4? Because there’s already a CX-4 in China. These duelling Ford and Chevy billboards take an old rivalry to a new level A laugh-a-minute is really not that much laughing at all They will make a movie about this. We’re not sure when or who will star in it – probably Jeff Bridges – but they will make it. A story about two South Carolina competing truck dealerships, one Ford and one Chevrolet, is just too good, too American not to do it. It started when Ravenel Ford in South Carolina took out a billboard that read “Behind every good Ford is a Chevy.” Then Marchant Chevrolet located just a few clicks down the road invested in their own roadside ad that said “Because you won’t move out of the fast lane.” Your move, Ravenel. Princess Diana’s bullet-proof car fetches over $45,000 USD at auction The Royal-approved 1987 Rolls-Royce Silver Spur that chauffeured Princess Diana during a trip to the United States in the ’90s has sold for $45,250 USD and not a pence more. The new owner of the armoured vehicle has yet to be identified, but we do know that there were 11 bidders in the auction, which was listed on Bring a Trailer last week. We attempted to raise some cash for a bid on behalf of the Driving.ca offices—you know, just something to pop out to the shops with at lunch break—but there weren’t quite as many Royal Fanatics as we’d hoped. Volvo says all of its 2021 model-year cars will top out at 180 km/h New Volvo S60 R-design Volvo has earned itself a reputation over time as a maker of ‘safe’ vehicles. So when they drew a hard line on speeding in its new vehicles earlier this week, announcing the brand will limit top speed in all of its vehicles to 180 km/h beginning with the 2021-model-year range, may not be surprising, but it is interesting. The implementation is part of a larger “Vision 2020” plan to reduce the number of Volvo-caused fatalities to zero as of 2020. That plan also incorporates “smart speed control” and “geofencing” features that would enforce area-specific speed controls in high-risk zones. Neat or annoying? You decide. Honda EV prototype looks “adorable” and can drive over 200 km/h in one charge The Honda e Prototype at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. The Honda e Prototype had the crowds, including our own Graeme Fletcher, swooning over its cute looks at its debut in Geneva. Based on the 2017 Urban EV concept that also had people talking good things about Honda’s potential electric future, the e Prototype comes with a rear-wheel drive, something of a change-up for Honda, as well as an apparent driving range of 200 km and the ability to gain an 80 per cent charge in just 30 minutes. When and if it’ll come to Canada is still TBD, but it goes into production later this year.
