Wow, it is EXACTLY the same! Did you post your sketch widely on the internet?

The Corolla Cross gets a big "meh" from me. I actually rather like the headlights and don't mind the grille. The...

Pics show a different sets of light clusters in that area, but I didn't any specific info. The LS apparently has "BladeScan" tech that the (non US) RXs have, but the RX doesn't have a similar lower...

More full pics on automobilemag.com indicate that the hybrid model has the vender hole, so unlikely to be a performance upgrade.

Infotainment can now be controlled by touchscreen, although the...

Fascinating. Not that it makes a difference at all regarding the car itself, but I would've loved to have been a fly on the wall at the marketing meeting(s) where they decided to put an Audi-branded...

Looks like a Tesla Y w/ more interesting side sculpting (not necessarily a bad thing). ::shrug::

What's the raised panel on the driver's side door armrest?

Well, they are and they aren't. I am more naturally "accepting" of sports cars b/c, even if you don't track them, they presumably make even everyday motoring more fun (esp ones that are actually...

Just a brief off topic.... The reliability of Honda appears to be going down. Surveys in Consumer Reports and JD Power (both Initial Quality and 3-year Dependability) both show that Honda is, at...

The profile is what most defines a BMW coupe to me, and we don't have a pic of that. From some angles, the C-pillar retains the oddly upright and truncated look of the current, while looking fairly...

That's probably exactly what Ford intended (and it is actually based on the Escape platform, IIRC). I assume it'll be a slightly butched up Escape that plans to trade on the Bronco connection (in...

My understanding is that the Japanese auto makers in the 80s and 90s would usually do a complete new body w/ the same platform every 4 yrs and update the platform every 8 yrs. I don't think that's...

This. The product is definitely not aimed at me, and I get that. I can appreciate it for what it is, but I otherwise think "meh." The design is aging fairly well, 700 HP and racing strips get some...

Did anyone but the Japanese update their cars every 4-5 yrs? The Europeans def didn't, and the US brands have a (well-deserved) rep for letting their cars wither on the vines.

Something about the arc of the A-pillar and the tiny window in front of the side mirrors screams VW (perhaps not surprisingly).

It looks less "thick" than does the Q3. Not fond of the character...

Never used one, but what do you like about a rotary shifter?



I don't get it, either. Alphanumeric names tend not to work well for anyone but the Europeans and Lexus.

To my eye, it was an awkward design. I think it likely looked good as a design sketch. And I liked the CTS from that same generation. But the ELR had the (subjectively) fundamentally cheap...
