The problem with the Aztek defense is that everything good about it could be had in the forgotten Buick Rendezvous, which also looked substantially better - even if it looked a lot like a shoe. The Aztek was an early CUV, and probably could have been decent if they didn’t fuck up the design, but don’t let them off the Read more

I’ve said for a long time that if I won the lottery, I’d buy one of the new Camaros in a heartbeat. Who wouldn’t want basically a Matchbox Car you can drive around every few weeks? It wouldn’t be anything more than a comparatively expensive toy. Read more

The Camaro is arguably the best performing out of the 3 current Muscle cars, but it’s the slowest seller. Kinda like when the F-bodies dominated the Mustang in performance a couple of decades ago but were being outsold 2-1 combined by the Mustang. Read more

The Wrangler is a license for FCA (excuse me, Stellantis) to print money. There’s a waiting list for used ones. It’s the 4 wheel counterpart to a Harley, a cosplaymobile (for most buyers, let’s be honest). The accessories the parts dept. can sell are more profitable than the whole Fiat lineup. Read more

The Kia Soul has been very successful. If someone can execute a similar vehicle as that or the Cube as an EV it could also do well.

Sales numbers are not everything. Look at 2000s GM for an example. Sales numbers did not save it, and nor will they save it again after this recession. You need to build excitement in your brand, even with the more base models. Nissans currently are the vehicle people buy because they have to, not because they want to.

While I don’t think a CVT should be on everything, I think for a commuter/appliance car it makes a lot of sense. Theoretically more efficient, less jerkiness in traffic. I get it. On my wife’s 3-row crossover the CVT suits it just fine. Read more

Even though I like the Civic as-is, I really, really like the looks of the Insight. It’s just a pretty lil’ car.

Seriously, the rendering is more like “We made the civic look like a boring sedan from 10 years ago”.

Maybe unpopular opinion, but I like the original one more. Its busy yes, but its unique at least. I’d get rid of those fake vents and dull down the edginess of the bottom edges, but overall the design looks cool.

Dunno, it's good work, but the internet commentariat will shout BORING one way, and TOO BUSY the other. I like that Honda is making a wild Civic. At least it doesn't have a whale mouth.

I can’t remember the last time I thought Zagato improved something they worked on.
