2018 Volvo XC90</br>June 5, 2017

For a near-mainstream automaker, Volvo’s enhanced lineup of Sweden-built vehicles is perhaps surprisingly competitive with better-known and more-popular luxury rivals, such as the Audi Q5, BMW X3 and Cadillac XT5.
The 2018 XC60 (due out later this summer) is a five-passenger utility vehicle that represents a new breed of Volvo. It also plays a critical role in the automaker’s increasing global popularity; the previous model accounted for about 30 percent of total sales for the brand.

Why buy a paper poster when you can purchase a distinctive wood or metal display from Red Horse Signs that will last much longer. The wood versions (the coolest by far) are printed onto distressed tongue-and-groove panels in sizes from 15 by 26 inches to 20 by 32 inches. Topics include racing cars and venues, classic and muscle cars, hot rods, service stations, auto sales, gas-pump brands and various accessories.

Walking through the mall, I was stopped by a journalist who was given a question to ask anyone who would make eye contact with him.
In the biz, we call it a “streeter” and it’s an assignment that’s often given to a nervous junior reporter or, as we joke around the office, punishment for someone who caused the editor a little extra grief that week.

Jaguar’s XJ220 was the ultimate company project car that ended up way off track.
The car was the brainchild of Jaguar’s then chief engineer Jim Randle, who, with a group of like-minded associates, began the planning process back in the mid-1980s. Working after hours and on weekends (they became known as The Saturday Club) Randle’s team took direct aim at such established marques as Ferrari and Porsche.

It’s one thing to be stranded on the side of the road near where you live. But it’s quite another to be stranded 1,000 miles from home on vacation where, with the added stress on your vehicle, it’s more likely to happen.

Sarcasm aside, of course we know this, so why don’t many of us follow our gut instincts . . . or all that wholesome professional advice?

Subaru Impreza: 2012-’16</br>May 1, 2017

Unlike the rally-race-inspired WRX and WRX STI, regular-strength Imprezas were intended for less strenuous duty. First-generation models arrived for the 1993 model year and were available in coupe, sedan and wagon variations. The lineup was revamped for 2002, at which point all-wheel-drive became standard and the coupe was dropped. Impreza was also revamped for the 2008 and 2012 model years.

It has taken the auto industry some time to get serious about gasoline-electric propulsion and challenge Toyota’s supremacy. But in one fell swoop, Hyundai/Kia have literally doubled down on dedicated-hybrid platforms with the all-new Kia Niro wagon and Hyundai Ioniq hatchback. Both shared-platform vehicles are now available in basic hybrid formats, but will eventually be offered as plug-in hybrids or 100-percent-electrified versions, with the latter intended mainly for California buyers.
