You probably don't even know the type, but i was thoroughly let down by the 2nd gen Nissan Almera. Very unlike any other japanese compact i ever driven, in that it not just felt cheap, but also didn't handle at all, was uncomfortable, and was a miserable thing all in all. Shame. » 10/20/14 6:31pm Monday 6:31pm

What engine does that Sportwagen have? There's a huge Audi engine factory in Hungary, and all VAG products get motors from there, so there's a chance you already have something on this mission. The same factory also builds the TT by the way, so it's not just the CLA, if you want a car. » 10/17/14 2:36am 10/17/14 2:36am

I'm not sure this is anything new, in fact the Passat wagon was called Variant from the very first installment, back in 1974. Ford of Europe called them Turniers, Opel called them Caravans, the French called them Break (5 seat) or Familiale (7-8 seat) and the list goes on. » 10/08/14 5:15pm 10/08/14 5:15pm

You know... i just finished a film for a tech company.

I like the DS3, period. And I love the DS3 Racing. The DS5 is not my cup of tea, but has French quirkiness by the bucket, as well as being luxurious, so it could work if pitched right. The DS4 i don't like, though as it's almost a CUV, it might see some US buyers getting on-board too. The technology is modern, the… » 10/07/14 12:04pm 10/07/14 12:04pm

Thanks for #3, but i have to say i have to disagree a bit on the Honda Accord front. In 1990 there already was a 150HP strong 2.2 on offer, even before VTEC came to the play, and though that doesn't sound like much in view of what's on offer today, try finding stronger direct competitors back then. Few and far between. » 9/25/14 2:17pm 9/25/14 2:17pm

I'm curious what they are changing for the 30th anniversary edition. I am lucky enough to have driven both a 205 GTI 1.9 in good nick this summer, and the 208 GTI when it was new last year. The two are of course incomparable, a lot has changed in the last 30 years, but i'm of the impression, the 208 GTI is an… » 9/24/14 6:33am 9/24/14 6:33am
