2016 Mercedes-Benz GLA: The Compact Luxury Crossover for You

A Look Back; How the Pontiac Fiero Won Our Hearts

In the 1980s the  was a car that many of us loved at first because it was a mid-engined vehicle that offers an easy to live with price, a two seater coupe style and a definitive shape that let you feel like you were actually driving a Ferrari.  In fact the name is somewhat close to Ferrari, if you use your imagination, and the Fiero was meant to be a fiery player in the automotive world that would be a great ride in the back roads of America, which every town and state seemed to have.

Looking to Purchase a McLaren 675LT Spider; Good Luck

When an automaker of a super exotic car offers a new model up for sale, the number of buyers can vary.  For the Bugatti Veyron the production time took ten years before they sold out, but at the price that was asked (well over $2 million) buyers were not putting in orders every day for this ultra-exclusive and exotic car.  For the Porsche 918 the production run of the limited model was somewhat shorter and the price much lower at under $1 million for this car.  The McLaren 675LT Spider might have just set a record for the sale of a super exotic car.

One of the first minivans that caught the attention of the world continues to be a fantastic performer on the market.  The Dodge Grand Caravan has been giving families what they want for many years including the Stow ‘n Go seating to allow for added storage or a place for the seats to go when they are not being used and the van is needed for carrying some cargo.  Not only do you see some great interior features and clean lines on the outside but the price for the Grand Caravan has always been part of why we love it so much.

2016 Toyota 4Runner: The Toughness You Want

When you think of the body on frame SUVs that are still on the market the 4Runner should come to mind as a leading candidate.  It may not have the ride or high-tech features of some of the other models, but this is an SUV that takes a beating and comes back up asking for more.  You can certainly appreciate the 4Runner not only for the toughness it provides but also for the reputation of capability, longevity and resale value that have been part of the 4Runner name for the entire time this SUV has been on the market.

2016 Subaru XV Crosstrek: An Off Road Capable Compact SUV

What do you think of when you hear the Nissan Juke or Scion xB?  Most likely you think of them as funky city SUVs that lack the off road capability you may want in your SUV.  The new Subaru XV Crosstrek offers more ground clearance than the older version and still carries the build and size of a compact car that can offer you the ride you want and the efficiency you need.  Whoever said you couldn’t have the best of both worlds in off road capability and fuel mileage did not think of the Crosstrek when making that statement.
