The team concentrated on makes and models from recent years (nothing 10 years or older). To begin, we’ll start with the ugly fuglies of the bunch. Coming in at number 5 is the 2016 Ford Kuga Vignale. The name alone is monstrous, and viewers find this car the same. The front grille is Kia-esque, but the lines are way too boxy making the Vignale a real eyesore. Number 4 was the 2015 Audi RS7 Sportback. Your scribe is one that likes this Audi, but it understandably departed from the typical Audi lines and that is likely why it was voted so low. As a stand-alone car it’s not ugly, but for Audi, perhaps.

Number 3 is sadly another Audi – the 2012 A1 Sportback. There’s a theory here – when Audi departs from its principal styling, customers buck back. Maybe, but this hatchback is not that attractive for any brand, Audi or no Audi. The [...]

Real beauties and beasts (Part I of II)

How do you quantify beauty? Excellent question, and one humanity has wrestled with since way before Christie Brinkley or Beyonce for that matter. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, it’s true. But what we also know is true is different societies, countries, cultures, etc. all define beauty in their own unique way. There are of course similarities, where top models worldwide typically share common attributes. One could argue these attributes have been pushed down our throats and for that reason we accept them as the true standards of beauty. Perhaps, but there isn’t much we can do about that. Yet, what if we told you there is a formula, a scientific method to measure beauty and arrive at an unbiased result, regardless of where you’re from.

During the golden days of the European Renaissance, architects and artists employed what was known as the “golden ratio,” [...]

The VW Group also counts on Skoda, Audi, Porsche and Seat brands in its portfolio of cars. Don’t be surprised if you see the same EV platforms employed in VW cars rolled out to the previously mentioned manufacturers. If this occurs, analysts bullish on the VW Group are talking about 22 million EVs by 2028 being manufactured by the larger group. And of these – 11.6 million could come out of Chinese factories.

All of this sounds rosy for VW, but Tesla’s missed promises (manufacturing 500,000 plus cars by 2018) have placed doubts with other manufacturers. This year for example Musk plans to deliver 360,000 to a maximum of 400,000 cars, far below the 500,000 figure. High volume manufacturing is not easy, and Musk has tweeted the same. However, he remains optimistic with Tesla Chinese factory development in motion and looking to end June 30, 2020 with a 500,000 target. VW is betting big [...]

It is well known by now that German manufacturers were late to the electric vehicle (EV) party. Flyers were handed out, social media posts were prevalent, all were invited to the EV party, and lots showed up – Nissan, Toyota, Ford, Tesla of course. They had a grand old time, eating and drinking, and not to mention the dancing and some timely karaoke. Yes, this party has been an ongoing party, an EV extravaganza, and one the Germans appeared to be eschewing from afar. Like a 1980s parent telling their kids to forget about listening to rap music as it’s just a fad, destined for the dustbin. It’s 2019 and rap hits lead the music charts much like EVs are the future of driving. The Germans recognize the error of their ways, and VW for one is doing something about it.

The German giant is ramping up production of EVs with the objective of hitting [...]

We can’t imagine a more awesome auto show to attend than the Tokyo Motor Show. Your loyal scribe has never set foot in Japan, would certainly love to, and especially so during auto week in Tokyo. The three auto powerhouse countries (in no order) are the U.S., Germany and Japan. U.S. auto shows have taken a turn to the electronic, while Germany still maintains its firm automotive roots, and Japan is a hybrid of the two. One might expect the Tokyo Motor Show to look and feel like a tech explosion, but it is remarkably true to its origins, and the 2019 version is upon us.

The biggest story so far does not revolve around a certain make or model, but rather a man. That man is Carlos Ghosn, the former Nissan Chairman who was arrested in November of last year for alleged financial misconduct. Ghosn was beloved (prior to folks learning of the [...]

What’s an influencer you ask? Although it might appear this term is new (while in our lexicon it is), people have been influencing the decisions of others for thousands of years. As human beings it is natural to gravitate towards others, learn from what they do, share common experiences, and of course, common “likes.” Facebook capitalized on this by giving people the space to follow what others are into, “like” those things, and in turn create their own space to do the same.

Influencer marketing is now big business, using people in society who have an ability to attract attention and followers to talk about brands and products in a favorable light. These folks are paid by the companies to do so (naturally), but believe it or not, many turn down offers from companies or products they would not normally like or use. So, for many influencers, it is commonly accepted that if they [...]

We begin Part II with a real banger!

Subaru BRZ/Toyota 86 (2013 – Present)

What’s going on here? Some sort of novel hybrid? Sort of, but those who frequent racetracks have already likely connected the dots. In 2013, the BRZ and what would become known as the Toyota Scion FR-S (the 86) were identical twins. Both priced in the mid-$20,000s, these were lightweight, affordable coupes with exceptional steering and a super nimble chassis.

Later, a turbocharged BRZ was rumored, but never arrived. Subaru did end up offering the 2018 BRZ tS, and that is a heck of a ride. But Roadshow still remembers 2013 as a banner year for these two.

Mazda MX-5 Miata (2016 – Present)

A matter of time. The Miata arrives to everyone’s “all-time” lists at some point. One day we’ll write a post on the most enjoyed cars of all time and it is certain the [...]

For all you gear-heads, we don’t need to tell you much about Roadshow from CNET. Started with the premise of providing reporting and buying advise on nearly everything motorized in the larger car and bike segments, Roadshow employs veteran auto journalists, crack video producers and tech gurus who churn out some incredible content on a weekly basis.

Roadshow tests out a ton of cars on a yearly basis and the company boasts that close to every car on the road today has rolled through their garage at some point in time. We are coming to the close of the 2010s (2010 – 2020) which promoted Roadshow to put on their reflective hats and ponder the favorite cars that have passed through over the last 10 years.

McLaren 570S (2016 – Present)

Supercars are super for a reason. They aren’t anything like you’ve ever seen nor driven, and as a result are owned by a [...]

The New York Times is one of the most heralded newspapers for a reason. Their writing staff is unparalleled, they are seasoned veterans at their craft, and best yet, maintain a captive audience. When one says, “the NY Times said this,” or, “according to the Times,” these phrases are attention grabbing.

Now that auto emissions are front and center, where transportation is reported as the largest source of planet-warming greenhouse gases, who drives where, how often, and the amount of emissions per city, county and state is of extreme interest. The Times recently published a fascinating map of emissions per state. Incredibly easy to navigate and fascinating to the core, emissions from just driving for example in the New York metro area increased faster than the overall population between 1990 and 2017. Yikes!

Another doozy – 60 percent of all emissions come from the 250 million passenger cars on our highways. If you want to add in the impact of freight trucks [...]

There are several hot-selling cars on the road today. Some are little, some are big, and on the big side SUVs are moving like gangbusters. Last summer saw some serious SUV sales numbers absolutely demolish previously held records, but some manufacturers didn’t jump into the game in time.

Kia, Hyundai and Subaru started selling large SUVs for the first time and this definitely helped all three. What follows are four big cars that moved some serious numbers over the summer.

Kia Telluride

Kia has long been heavy on the passenger car line. The slump occurred and what followed was a massive revenue hit on anything that was (and is) not a SUV. Enter the Telluride. Third quarter sales alone are 16,918 and it just hit dealerships 2 months ago. Impressive stuff and Telluride demand is outpacing supply by a long shot. Moreover, the Hyundai Palisade, its three-row sibling, is also taking a back seat to [...]
