Is The Full-Size Sedan Dead?

Americans sure love their midsize and compact sedans.

With a variety of midsize sedans to choose from, 11 to be exact – Accord, Camry, Altima, Legacy, Mazda6, Optima, Sonata, Passat, 200, Fusion and Malibu – it seems like families just nitpick their sedans based on aesthetics and previous brand ownership; due to advancements in technology, driver assistance and standard equipment these sedans are not all that unique amongst each other. 443 more words

陰謀論?Fiat 124 Spider (2017) & Mazda MX-5 Miata (2016)

2015 LA Auto Show (篇一

今年洛杉磯的車展Fiat車廠發表了一台新車 - 2017年款 Fiat 124 Spider。小麥去車展前就在網路上看了發表,第一眼的反應是;“阿~ 這不是Miata嗎?不會又搞個BRZ跟FR-S或Mazda 2 和 Scion iA這種雙胞胎的把戲吧。” 不過在仔細研究一下,才發現其實他們可以說是完全不同的車子。這次Fiat的確是和Mazda聯手合作, 借用MX-5 Miata(以下簡稱Miata)的平台設計出124 Spider (以下簡稱124),但是在外觀跟車子最主要的動力跟操控確有截然不同的取向。內裝方面,我想Fiat可能是花太多錢開發前面敘述的地方,內裝就是換個車廠標誌,其它就幾乎是一模一樣。那是有什麼陰謀論? 在我小小介紹兩車的差別之後會跟大家分享。

外觀設計方面,Fiat以70年代的Fiat 124為主體。保持著復古取向與義大利歐式的風格, 以圓滑線條為主的外觀。這跟2016年第四代Miata的設計取向, 使用銳利的角度所刻畫出來的車身線條是完全不同。車身方面,Fiat 124也比Miata長了快5吋, 重量也比Miata重了100磅左右。( 詳細資料都請各位自己上網查吧,谷哥力量大。) 仔細看幾眼,這兩台車應該說是側面會讓人一時分不出來,可是前後外觀就差蠻多的。 76 more words

Attitude? The Skoda Yeti has all the appeal of a pile of stale underpants after a stag party

It’s all about attitude. Some cars have it, others don’t. Take the Skoda Yeti. A perfectly sound motor, practical and, erm, worthy. Yet it has all the appeal of a pile of stale underpants after a stag party. 113 more words
