Beautiful. And it’s interesting that Rolls-Royce is switching to the Phantom and Cullinan’s aluminum “Architecture of Luxury” platform. The outgoing Ghost, as well as the related Dawn and Wraith, are steel and based around the same platform as the previous-generation 5 (F07, F10, F11), 6 (F06, F12, F13) and 7 Series…
Yep. The Range Rover Evoque Convertible did about as poorly, although it at least looked better.
That sounds LeDisgusting. I would have been tempted to LeBury it in a rockfall, if one were to appear.
Yeah, you’re right. But I don’t begrudge people their ability to pick cars based on perceived or rare needs. I’m an unmarried man with a compact-medium dog and no children. Technically, I could get away with a Ford Fiesta or (pushing it) a Hyundai Kona; yet I drive a Grand Cherokee V6 that seats five, tows 7,000 lbs,…
Beautiful, both the 1996 and the 2018.
I don’t hate it, but probably wouldn’t buy one on the basis of that face. I do like the interior.
My pick for best-looking midsize sedan, right now, would be the Honda Accord, chrome brow and all. I love the stance, proportions and choice of materials.
I really don’t have any love for transverse V8s, outside of mid-engined cars, like the Lamborghini Jalpa and the original Honda/Acura NSX.
Minus a few details, it looks like something that could have been designed anytime from the 60s forward.
Did they ever make an IS Sportcross with a manual transmission?
Well, no; I didn’t figure you did. And you’re right that it’s not such a big deal on a 20-year-old Jeep.
Hyundai Sonata: “Hold my beer, Riviera.”
Right you are.
That happens a lot. And that’s not to mention the large numbers of people who deliberately title-wash this way.
I can’t disagree.
This did not have Northstar DNA. The eighth-generation Buick Riviera debuted in 1994, as a 1995 model. For 1995 only, they had the Series I 3800 and Series I 3800 Supercharged V6. For 1996 and 1997, they got upgraded to the Series II 3800 and Series II 3800 Supercharged V6. For 1998 and 1999, the Supercharged V6 …
I had a CarMax warranty on my 2011 X5, and it was still so irritating that I sold the car after four months. The warranty itself was great.
Bahahahaha. My mom had a first-generation (2003) Sorento EX 4WD, and I believe it also had an optimistic speedometer.
I know for a fact that top speed on my Grand Cherokee V6, whose speedometer is fully digital, anyway, is 119 MPH.
That’s a really good suggestion. It’s worth noting that the only option you could get on the previous-gen (2013-2016) Accord Touring was the V6. You couldn’t get the 4-cylinder.
It’s only on the new (2018+) generation that they offer the base 1.5-liter turbo and optional 2.0-liter turbo.
Or, more aptly, don’t not get the Mark Levinson. My best friend has a 2016 Lexus RX 450h without it, and his sound system is much worse than I would have expected for any Lexus product.
My ‘16 Cruze Premier RS also had heated rear seats.
