Use: Voted the best automotive news column available: you need it.

What it is: If you could have only one automotive feature, this should be it. At Wheelbase Communications, we’ve chosen to stay away from providing an automotive-news column until we could do it in a non-traditional way. And here it is: the Auto Sleuth. Our worldly gumshoe has his ear to the ground, digging up the latest news on everything from product launches and updates to names in the news. The column is solely driven by reader interest. No boring statistics or auto-company pap here, just the straight goods peppered with the Auto Sleuth’s commentary and speculative, gossipy-style.

Product specifications

  • Mac and PC print layout with separate text and art files for maximum work flexibility.
  • High-resolution artwork suitable for print.

Description

The second-generation 2010-’17 Equinox used the same platform as the GMC Terrain and was a big improvement over the original Equinox in terms of looks and roominess. Much-improved seating and interior appointments matched the bolder styling. This Equinox’s cabin was also quieter than before, primarily due to plenty of sound insulation. Ride quality was also an Equinox strong point.

2020 Honda Insight

Story Intro

The current Insight has given Honda a measure of redemption. It also provides a triple threat in the gasoline-electric category, alongside the Accord Hybrid and Clarity plug-in.
The Insight could easily have been called the Civic Hybrid since only minor adjustments were made to that model’s body structure, sheetmetal and grille/LED headlight combination. The Insight’s interior is more upscale that the Civic’s, with transmission-control switches on the center console replacing the traditional gearshift handle.
