Actually, I believe a large part of european imports in Japan are specifically ordered with LHD because it seems more exclusive and (back when controls where physical and not just electronics) better engineered.
So a german car with lhd would not be cheaper nor denote cheapness, quite the contrary, it would show the…
If you drive a conventional car, being cut in traffic usually only require to change gear one time to get back up to speed.
That’s really nice indeed.
though if you really want one for a lot cheaper, you can easily pick a XJ350 / 358 and have virtually the same result for less than 0.5 % of the price.
EDIT : I would even go as far as to say that it looks better than its Toyota sibling the CH-R. Which, considering the recent crop of atrocious designs Lexus put us through lately, is rather good news.
I’m... actually quite surprised that I don’t actively hate it ?
I was all prepared to hate this contraption, and bracing for the days when they would inevitably flood the streets with their hideous face. And yet, here it is revealed in production form, and my first thought upon seeing it was : “That’s not as bad as I…
No it isn’t. You seem unaware of the fact that people living out of the cities do need to get there sometimes, and a massive pickup truck would make it extremely hard in european towns, where the streets aren’t as wide and where parking is rare.
Gas is also very expensive, and we have no need for huge vehicles anyway.
I don’t know why you have this nagging suspicion either, because the SRX XT already is the same as the Saab 9-4 X.
This upcoming XT4 is going to be a size smaller, like a Q3 / X1 / GLA.
Well, anything that doesn’t look like a house-sized Sherle Wagner showroom.
Imma stop you right there : No, people don’t buy this kind of cars in Europe.
What is called a “big” car in Europe is what is called a “midsize” in Northern America. LHD/RHD isn’t the problem since most of EUrope drives on the right side of the road, and LHD Ford Rangers and Chevy Colorados already exist. The Ranger…
As many said before me : that green is gorgeous !
That’s a bit unpleasant. I’d rather the images stayed where they are supposed to be and let me take a good look at them, instead of them moving around as i read the article.
But as for the pictures themselves : they’re postively amazing looking indeed !
Around 80% of cars in Europe are equipped with manual transmissions, and it doesn’t stop people from texting while driving AT ALL.
And available in a lovely “Gotland” green <3
Not enough ground clearance. The TourX sits only half-an-inch higher than the regular Regal.
I don’t know, why would cars only be closed ?
I mean sure, most would plausibly look like what you conceived, but I’d think convertibles would still have a place.
Feeling the wind in one’s hair and the kiss of the sun on one’s skin can be appreciated even without sight.
BMW does offer the current 3 and 4 seires in Sunset Orange, which is lovely.
Exactly. If it had been built 20 miles further, or even anywhere else on earth, there would still have been problems with the subway, because a city with this much people brings all sorts of problems.
I think that it’s rather admirable that they manage to have the subway mostly working 24/7.
Man, that brings so many childhood memories of Playstation races...
OTOH, there can never be too many Buick posts.
Citroën station-wagons have been doing this since the late 1990s with the first generation C5.
They perhaps did it earlier, I can’t tell for the Xantia break or the XM.
