Underrated post. I see pedestrian safety as a bigger factor in the design of modern front ends than aero. Angles and corners hurt more than rounded flexible panels with space underneath. Besides a lot of aero trickery can be achieved at the rear.
Agreed. I can see traffic just fine in my sedan. I can still see the high mounted tail lights of the tank in front of the car in front of me just fine. The arguments that you need a SUV to drive among SUVs is poor and made by poor drivers. Just need to stop people from creeping up next to me when I’m tying to make a… Read more
My god, you actually did it, you bought a Regal TourX instead of just complaining about it online. Amazing!
I mean, we’ve only owned it for a year and two months, so...
Your tired that an enthusiast website bitches about the 100 million moms dictating the car market? Don't lay that blame here.
The CX-5 has an overbite to it. The Challenger seems to ignore aerodynamics. So...it's possible.
Dude, I was going UNDER BOSTON on I-93 the other day when a tractor-trailer to my right put its blinker on. Driver must have just realized that he was three lanes over from the Route 1 split on the Zakim bridge with half a mile to go, and he was trying to get across before he missed his exit. My spidey sense tingled… Read more
“The market has spoken”
In the 1960s more than 40% of Americans were regular smokers. Things change quickly when they become uncool. Crossovers are (and always have been) immeasurably uncool.
Big facts. We’re over 25,000 flawless miles in our Buick now. It’s a great car. I wish the fuel economy was a smidge better, but I can mostly blame that on my wife’s lead foot.
I will never buy a crossover but now that I’m raising a toddler, I kind of get why some parents want a higher ride. Getting a toddler into a child seat is much easier when you don’t have to bend over to put them in. It’s no problem for me as I’m strong enough to do it, But I can see weaker people or people with bad… Read more
Shark nose BMWs are the best BMWs, for sure.
“Silent Egg” is a cooler name than “Model Y.” You might be onto something. They shoulda named it Silent Egg.
I drive a wagon, and you know what? Visibility is fine. Zero problems. I’ve never felt like I needed to be able to see over the roofs of the vehicles around me, it’s honestly a complete non-issue. My girlfriend has a sedan and when I drive that I have no trouble seeing either, other than the fact that it has tiny… Read more
Getting real tired of every new car being a goddamn crossover.
So how long till every upscale mall is crawling with these silent eggs?
