Since Volvo doesn't Technically sell any station wagons in the US Market
(The XC70 is the closest thing, but technically and legally, it's a Crossover [thats the "XC" in it's name])

The Volvo V60 wagon is coming.
Hopefully a Volvo V60 R is also coming
The XC70 is a wagon, but they market  it as a cross over cuz crossovers are super poplar here in murika. It's like how everything is $xx.99, it makes you think it's cheaper but really, it's not. marketing tactics yo!

dooble pawst


The Corvette has 455 Horsepower and Gets 29 MPG Highway, 17 city.

In ECO mode it gets 30mpg, both.

So Normally I hate GM and Chevrolet.
but thats genius.

29ish MPG, 455 Horsepower, 0-60 in 3.7, only 51,000 USD.

As unorginal as the design is, it looks like it's the most dynamic sports car on the market.

Maybe chevy is doing something right. Or not, they still have other garbage on the market. new Impala looks good at the front, HORRIBLE at the back.
It gets about 20ish MPGs in the real world. The EPA estimates are only accurate when the stars align and zeus blesses your journey.

And you get almost no MPGs if you actually put the throttle down and dont shift from first to 4th. and it's cheap as all hell inside and out.

I think Porsche is the most dynamic sports car on the market. They're quick, can turn, have as much room as the vette, with back seats, and get decent fuel economy and are pretty reliable.


I want a 2014 jeep SRT8 q.q

Again, crossovers are poplar, so they market things as them even though they are pretty much SUVs or minivans with a lift kit. Cars are weird yo.


Has there been any word on that rolls royce sport mobile?

That is a midsized SUV at best. The Flex while good looking, is small as hell.

Yea the CX9 is very small,but it's very big inside. Thats why it's considered full-size.

I think the Cx9 is right at the border between full and mid, but they bumped it to full because of the 7 seats.

It's cuz it's pigfat, but not in a good way, at least for me. I need height and length, not width. /tallproblems

I still think it's midsized.

at first i look at the new corvette, and I am like
"holy crap it looks like a viper"
"it's probably going to be horrible, like everything else GM has made recently"


The car is like
getting amazing acclaim.

Motortrend reviewed it and found like nothing wrong, and I think I know why.
GM completely removed everything about the car, and built a new one. Before corvettes where just building on being better than the last by using old stuff, this time everythings new.
It's extremely high tech now.
The stupid ****ty GM interior is gone now
the new engine is even more reliable and fast
the suspension is suprisingly grippy, suprising for a RWD American 460 HP V8 Sports Car
It's suprisingly quick and launches well
it gets good mpgs thanks to gear skipping tech

the **** gm?



May I remind you, ive watched this guy for a while. He doesn't like corvettes. Hes a BMW Fanboy.

you cant make a reliability claim as its not even been out for that long.

they've always had good mpgs by going from 1st to 4th, and theyre lightweight.

I'm still going to hold out major judgment on the other things until theyve been out for a couple years and I start seeing my neighbors with them. :x
