• Peugeot 407

    About the same size as a Passat, that new Peugeot seems to have what it takes to make it over here. Even the choice of engines is similar to what we get. A 2.2Liter with 160hp, or a 3.0Liter V6 with 211hp. But Nooooo.. Peugeot is still “thinking about re-entering the US market”. So don’t… Continue reading Peugeot 407

  • 2006 Miata Part2

    Here are 2 more shots of what the next Miata might look like. Latelly, some prototypes have been spoted in Europe, undergoing some testing. And they seem to look like an updated version of the current design. Which itself, was an “updated’ version of the previous design! Will fear dictate the new design direction? Let’s… Continue reading 2006 Miata Part2

  • Citroen C4

    Another cool car we can’t get. Citroen is own by Peugeot, and these guys distroyed their good name in the US in the 80’s by selling pretty crappy cars. Most of them used to only retain about 45% of their value after the 1st year of ownership. And they gave up the US market. They… Continue reading Citroen C4

  • 2006 Hyundai Sonata. Part 2…

    Well. It looks much better on these pictures. Still not very modern, still a mix of Accord/Camry/Audi. But at least it doesn’t seem to look cheap. Actually a very nice mainstream car. Not really worse than the Accord. And miles ahead of the ugly and misguided Malibu.

  • Pininfarina Nido

    One of the world’s best designer is trying to show what can be done to make a small city car safe and attractive. His Nido is both. The sad part is that, it is now almost 5 years after the year 2000, and we still drive boring and unatractive boxes like the Corolla or the… Continue reading Pininfarina Nido

  • 2006 Mercedes B Class

    Give or take a few details, this is what we’ll get over here as the smallest Mercedes model. They will by then, stop selling the cool 230 Coupe. And they wimped out and followed JD Power’s advice of NOT selling the really cool new A class in the US. Even thought they had planned it… Continue reading 2006 Mercedes B Class

  • It’s coming!!!

    Yes. The new Mustangs are being built as we speak. It’s only a matter of a short weeks until they show up at your local dealership!

  • Mazda 5

    This looks to be one of the more modern minivans out there. Originaly designed for the European and Japanese market, the Mazda 5 should be making it over here by the end of 2005, in small numbers. It seats 6 and will probably use the 2.3 Liter engine from the 6. It doesn’t replace the… Continue reading Mazda 5

  • 2005 Honda Accord Hybrid

    Was there really a need for this. The regular V6 Accord has 240hp and this has 255hp. Do you really need to pay an extra $2000 or $3000 for the hybrid technology? Even with the better mileage, it should take you at least 4 years to make that money back. And an Accord V6 can… Continue reading 2005 Honda Accord Hybrid
