      ^ Gorgeous.

      BMW designs were great until the mid-late '90s.

      If Jeep does it right, can see a flagship Grand Wagoneer being successful.




      I don't know how accurate that is (I guess it depends on who did the registration).

      Can't say I've seen too many...

      ATP across a brand is often misleading since it doesn't take into account mix of models and the no. of sales across each model line.

      Right now, Cadillac is missing a flagship sedan and only has 1...

      Don't like what MB has been doing w/ its front and rear fascias for the most part, but the greenhouse/side looks better than the regular S Class (more imposing).

      But as for the interior, MB has...

      Really? I heard that Chevy addressed the 3-passenger rear issue.

      Anyhow, a lower priced, longer EV range should help Volt sales (even w/ the price of gas down, still relatively high in areas like...

      OP's comment is, of course, relative - and dependent on what one is looking for, but if one is looking for a luxo-cruiser (w/ a bit of sport) with a refined (if a bit bland interior re the dash...

      Learned how to drive a stick in a 944; thing cornered flat and was simply a joy to drive on switchbacks.

      It's not like Lexus can't offer a LWB IS and GS for the China market and the current IS and GS totally chased after the 3 and 5 Series.

      And yes, the Lexus lineup is US/NA-centric b/c mostly...

      Congrats OP!

      That looks sweet.

      Now, drive the crap out of it (after proper break-in).

      The new 'Bu should be better relative to its segment than is the Impala which is widely regarded as the tops in the full-size FWD class (and besides, more Camrys went to rental lots than Malibus last...

      Don't really see why this is a big deal as top trim minivans selling for well into the $40k range is fairly common these days.

      OK - maybe a minivan doesn't exactly go w/ the sporty theme that...

      Not quite the fastback look of the A7.




      Take your pick -

      Impala, Genesis, Fusion, Avalon, etc.

      Can also add the 5 Series GT, but man, says something about BMW designs lately when they...

      Again, size doesn't have as much to do w/ it as you think.

      As I stated before, the TL was longer than the 5 Series and yet, was most often pitted against the compacts altho Acura already had the...

      They only have been doing that for the China market, so not exactly global




      Lexus is just being stupid in not offering diesels for Europe.

      The cheapening Yen allows Toyota to offer aggressive discounts and still make large profits.

      Back when the Yen was high, Toyota couldn't raise prices too much (once the competition got better) and...

      Again, FWD-tranverse sedans have much more efficient use of interior space - hence, the RLX, XTS and MKS are all considered full-size FWD sedans.

      And why are you picking and choosing?

      The RLX...

      Yes - just like the XTS and MKS which are the direct competitors (in terms of rear passenger room, they are more like the SWB flagships than the midsizers).

      Yes - the Germans offer LWB versions of their flagships, but they have been doing that for ages.
