Which literally changes absolutely nothing about what I said, which was correcting your wrong ass about us not getting the same Focus as Europe.

It's not clear yet, but the rumor is it's only going to be every 10,000 miles/12 months. That's what the 0W-20 is rated at for the current Camry.

TIL: the new Camry uses 0W-16 oil. Which means oil changes are going to be over $100. You can also use 0W-20, which will bring oil changes down to roughly half that cost, but then you'll see fuel...

If the competition keeps putting out garbage like the new Toyota CH-R, it's not going to be hard to keep sales momentum going. The Stonic/Kona twins are the only two vehicles in the class even on the...

It's VERY similar, but nothing is exactly the same. Even the bow tie-style HVAC controls look to have been modified slightly from the current car.

Well, VWs have improved in quality. Of course, part of that is that their vehicles are ancient--the Tiguan that's now the best performer the brand has in quality surveys is in its 10th model year, so...

Here's the entire thing in profile--it's a teaser. Sort of. Pricing starts at $38,600.

Both will be sold in the US and Canada (Mexico is getting the Hyundai Creta; they might also get the Stonic, though).

I think both brands are going to have trouble keeping these things in stock....

I don't think there is going to be another GLI, considering how poorly the current model sells. Besides, the Elantra Sport already makes the GLI pretty unnecessary.

2018 Kia Stonic

I think it looks fantastic--I love the way the C-pillars wrap over the roof and connect.

It certainly can't be any worse. The CLA is a flaming piece of garbage, crude, cramped and crappily built. It's like Mercedes-Benz benchmarked the previous-generation Hyundai Elantra...and missed.

I don't think Kia is expecting to sell too many of these cars overall, and especially not in the US. I think if Kia can sell 3,000 to 5,000 a year here, they'll be pretty happy.

Styling aside, Hyundai says that the EV version of the Kona--which is scheduled to launch in the spring alongside the rest of the line-up--will have a 242 mile range, which would be very impressive.
