Google today announced an update to its Knowledge Graph feature: you can now search for cars and get quick information without leaving the search engine. All you have to do is type in (or tap the microphone on your Google Search app and speak) the car model and year, and Google will do the rest.

You’ll see facts like the car’s engine size, its miles per gallon (MPG), and pricing for different configurations. You can also check out other cars by selecting one listed under the “People also search for” section. We’re not seeing this feature just yet, but that’s to be expect as it’s likely rolling out gradually.
