• 2011 Acura TSX Wagon

    Or “Sport Wagon”. “Wagon” being treated as a dirty word. No surprises here.  Basically a Euro Accord wagon with an Acura grille. With a 5 speed auto and the smaller 2.4 Liter only. No V6 and no manual.

  • 2011 Hyundai Sonata Turbo

    -2.0 Liter engine with 274hp -22MPG City/34MPG Hwy I’m all for squeezing more power from a smaller engine. And 34MPG is a good reason to do it.

    Looking very much like the 2008 Forum concept. ( In white) A good thing. I had the chance to sit inside the Forum, and it was a stunning looking car in person. Let’s hope they kept the production version close enough. 2011 seems like a great year for Minivans, with all new ones from Toyota,… Continue reading 2011 Nissan Quest

  • 2011 Hyundai Accent???

    I guess it is. Or is it the Elantra? The Elantra is due for a redesign first. Who knows… Even though Hyundais are becoming very stylish, they do start looking the same….
