Toyota, like all automakers, issues sales reports chronologically and not by model year. Thus, we can’t know exactly. But the first-gen xB ran much of the way through 2007. Over approximately four years, 2003-2007 sales totalled 215,126. Over approximately eight years, 2008-January 2016: 178,286.
But it’s so spectacular it should count for two.
We wear as a badge of honour that every reader who feels there is bias believes there is bias in favour of a different brand than the previous reader. There’s nothing better than receiving two emails from two readers who’ve read the same pickup truck sales articles, one believing our coverage favours GM; one believing… Read more
That’s what we do. Swift change, good stuff.
Sounds like you might be comparing Volvo’s global run (57,000) to Land Rover’s U.S. deliveries through July, 37,323. The XC90 is flying fast in the U.S., too, but Volvo has only reported sales of 2741 XC90s in the U.S. through the first seven months of 2015, of which 2629 were the new versions. Globally, Land Rover… Read more
Personal tastes from the pair of decision makers - only so many vehicles are going to interest us both - meant the Acadia’s out. Had a Traverse tester last summer - it felt like it’s really falling behind the times. Enclave still looks nice, but the pricing becomes a real reach when equipped as we’d want.
Very limited availability of used ones in The Great White North. We would have had to go really rather old to get them into an affordable price bracket. New ones, obviously, are very, very costly. Second-row seat space isn’t the best, but that wouldn’t have been the end of the world. Bigger problem is that unless it’s… Read more
I accept all forms of sympathy.
Similar feelings here. We’re blessed with driving a new vehicle every single week of the year, many of which are fun and adequately meet the task of providing me with greater driving joy. The van does everything else, and isn’t particularly bad to drive. True, the RVR (Outlander Sport in the U.S.) from last week and… Read more
There are certainly huge reliability concerns with the Windsor vans. Anecodotally, all of the six versions owned by people we know well (siblings and close friends) have been problem-free. Yet for many minivan buyers, even if the next-gen van matches or exceeds the Odyssey/Sienna in terms of performance, style, and… Read more
Sorry that was sentence #4 rather than sentence #1.
XV Crosstrek fits in the way that the HR-V fits. CR-V = Forester. XV therefore = HR-V. Right? Outlander Sport is 169 inches long, same as HR-V, six inches shorter bumper to bumper than XV Crosstrek. Passenger volume is 97.5 cubic feet for Mitsu and Subaru, 96.1 for HR-V. Outlander, not Outlander Sport (which is RVR in… Read more
