The problem with the HRV is it’s too long, especially for City drivers like myself who got the Fit for it’s easy street parking. If Cargo Volume is less of a priority there is always the Hyundai Venue. Similar exterior dimensions, price, fuel economy, and front passenger interior dimensions. Biggest difference is in Read more

It was also added to the higher end trims of the Mazda6 for the 2018 model year. Wonder if they’ll have future CX-30 Signature/Signature Reserve trims with a turbo in the future as well.

Yep, they have Peter Schreyer who is ex-Audi. They also have Andrew Biermann who is ex-BMW M Group.

Compared to the new G80/90 and GV80, the G70 has quite a dated interior. Don’t get me wrong it’s not bad (everything logical to operate, physical controls and knobs, zero learning curve) but I’d personally wait. Hopefully we get a redesign and that new 2.5L turbo in 2021/22.

The snow has been really mild this winter outside of a few days. If you’re in the southtowns then I’d consider it, but most of the time the roads are quite clear and the plows usually do a decent job.

So the current G80 is about 43k, I would expect similar-ish pricing. With RWD and a 10 year powertrain warranty to boot. If you were *purchasing* in this price range what else would you consider? Unfortunately HVAC control temp controls look to be touch? Which is odd because they’re similar in design to the GV80 but Read more

Scrolling through my tweets quickly and saw this picture — thought it was the new Escape 🤣🤣

FYI my local Mazda is advertising $7000 off MSRP for the Diesel CX-5 so there are certainly deals to be found.

Soooo this or a Honda Fit? With Toyota I’ll (most likely) get standard safety tech, but the Honda has the magic seats with great versatility.

While it’s down a few HP compared to the Fit, it’s substantially shorter so I’m wondering how the weights of the two vehicles compare. I’m hoping Honda adds some standard equipment safety features for the 2020 Fit, because the size/practicality/versatility of the Fit is hard to beat at that price point.

Wow, 2.5" shorter in length than a Honda Fit. Looks interesting for city driving and street parking. Questions for me include: What (if any) autonomous safety features come standard, ground clearance, and weight. Read more

Like the new exterior styling but that infotainment UI looks awful.

Can’t see the front end, but looks like a boxier and less attractive Genesis.

Tons of great reviews out there for the 3 (see Savagegeese’s if you want a detailed look), but I’ll probably wait around for a second generation Skyactiv-G engine. I’m hoping for a small-displacement turbo, as Mazda seems to be one of the very few manufacturers still clinging to a standard 6 speed auto + naturally Read more

So... Honda Fit or the new 2020 Yaris? I’m still holding out hope Honda puts (at least some) safety equipment standard on base trims for the new 2020 model year.

Erik, does the Telluride require premium gas to get that horsepower/torque? Price shopping this with a CX-9, which is similar in weight but slightly smaller. Mazda has a smaller displacement engine which has less hp but much more torque.

It’s gotta be the CX-3, right? It’s the last vehicle to get their new design language. It’s a (small) crossover. Or yeah maybe scrap the CX-3 and bring over the 4 to the US since customers are all buying bigger vehicles now.

Nice write up! My only hang-up with the interior seems to be the over abundance of shiny black plastic material around the gear shifter area. Sure it may look good in press shots, but it’s impossible to keep clean, easily scuffed up, and just looks bad after a few years of use. Especially in an area you’re touching Read more
