• All new Chevy/Daewoo Matiz

    The original model came out as the Daewoo Matiz in 1998.A cute little Korean car designed by Giugiaro in Italy. And it has been pretty successful in europe.I am not sure if Giugiaro designed this one, but it is now sold (Like all other models from Daewoo) in europe s a Chevrolet.That still sounds so… Continue reading All new Chevy/Daewoo Matiz

  • Formore no more ???

    The latest news is that Smart owner, Mercedes, “postponed” the SUV-like project called the Formore.The Formore’s main market was supposed to be the US. But lately, the other, smaller, Smart models have received a lot of positive feedback in the US.So maybe they don’t think they need this fake SUV anymore.It was to be based… Continue reading Formore no more ???

  • More 2006 Passat

    Just thgought I would post more pictures of the all new Passat, so you can get used to it before it comes out…I know it works for me. Except for the interior. It still looks old fashion, without being retro cool. Just old…

  • Ford Focus ST

    That’s right, a Focus with a 2.5 Liter engine from the Volvo S40,good for 220 HP !!!I bet there would be a good size market for these in the US. The Focus SVT was pretty successful. And for 2006, Honda with the new Civic SI looks like they will be the only game in town…… Continue reading Ford Focus ST

  • New renault Twingo?

    The Z17 Concept is a preview of the new Twingo design.But the concept has only 3 seats! I doubt there is a Market for a 3 seater car, even in Europe.I would think the production model will have a proper back seat.The look is more in line with the current square trend of latest renault… Continue reading New renault Twingo?

  • Cadillac BLS

    GM claims the all new BLS is for the European market only.That sounds close to the PR BS we’ve heard just last year about the Jaguar X type wagon.Cadillac wants to compete with the BMW 3 series, Mercedes C class even the next Lexus IS. And the CTS is way to big for most European… Continue reading Cadillac BLS

  • More on the 407 Coupe

    A nice looking car, but the flat rear end strangly reminds me of some 1970s European car. Not a good thing…The interior is almost straight from the sedan.This “concept” is actually called the Prologue. But it is pretty much the production model. Too bad for us, it would have been nice to have a European… Continue reading More on the 407 Coupe

  • Peugeot 407 Coupe

    The sedan version, and especially the wagon, look so modern , they almost make this 2 door coupe look conservative.The design is not as modern as the previous Peugeot Coupe.The most interesting engine is the new 2.7Liter V6 Diesel also used in the Jaguars X and S Types. And, of course, we will never see… Continue reading Peugeot 407 Coupe

  • 2006 Saab 9.3 Sport Hatch

    Nothing spectacular here.A straight wagon from the sedan.Looks just like the concept shown last year, except for the cool glass roof.The main news is the availability of a Turbo V6 with 250hp! Saabs remain quite expensive for cars most people are not interested in. (at least in the US).Loose the “side skirts” and with a… Continue reading 2006 Saab 9.3 Sport Hatch

  • 2006 Mercedes B Class

    With these fenders, the B class looks like a non-retro Mercedes PT Cruiser, kind of… Based on the new A class, it is longer and taller. And it should be coming to the US. Unless the dollar plunges even more. But the rear, and the interior don’t look very modern. Especially compared with the A… Continue reading 2006 Mercedes B Class

  • 2006 Honda Civic (US)

    Replace the wheels with smaller ones, do the same thing with the rear spoiler. Ad door handles and take out the black paint on the hood and the glass roof. And there you have it! The 2006 Civic SI coupe for the US market. (Well, if they don’t pull a “Lincoln Zephyr” on us, that… Continue reading 2006 Honda Civic (US)

  • 2006 Dodge Neon replacement

    The new small Dodge will be part of the European lauch of the brand. Why Mercedes decided to sell Dodge cars in europe is beyong me. I just don’t get it. Don’t they have enough trouble selling Chryslers? Dodge is a completely unnown name over there. They will have to start everything from zero. But… Continue reading 2006 Dodge Neon replacement

  • Dodge Nitro

    For now called a concept. But besides the 20 inch wheels, that’s pretty much what we’ll get next year.It’s more a preview than a real concept. This might also be part of the European lauch of the Dodge brand. This is completely based on the Jeep Liberty. And yet, it doesn’t look anything like it!… Continue reading Dodge Nitro

  • 2006 Kia Sedona

    Well.. It looks like.. A minivan! It doesn’t try to be an SUV, or a space pod. And there is a pretty big market share to go after. Conservative as it may be, it looks better than the Honda Odyssey, and much, much better than the Ford Frrestyle. The interior looks even better (pics later).… Continue reading 2006 Kia Sedona
