Saturdays 10am – 12pm
Explosive yet muted……soft yet firm……contradictions, perhaps, but not when describing Mercedes’ ’17 GLS450.
If you’ve got a couple of full sleeves goin’…maybe weigh in around 300 plus or minus a little….and plan your vacations around Sturgis and Daytona, you might want a different truck.
I was actually multi-tasking when I took delivery of Nissan’s ‘17 Armada…lunching with a client and talking on the cell, so I took a real quick look…grabbed the keys of this big, blocky SUV and thought, “Great…another Infiniti QX80.”
There was a time when Volvos…and especially Volvo wagons…were the “official vehicle” of the flannel-wearing, comfortable-shoe crowd….and safety-conscious soccer Moms everywhere.
Welcome to “Hybrid 2.0 1/2.”
Vehicles with “ECO” in their names don’t usually perform quite this well.
Forgive yourself if you see the all-new / all re-designed ’17 CR-V and say “huh”?
Could this possibly be the world’s fastest economy car?
Above average space, European “feel”, eager performance, economy….plus below average price…..that pretty much sums up Volkswagen’s 2017 Passat.
The King is back….long live the King! While some may argue that VW’s Bus….or the ’60 Corvair Greenbrier were the first mini-vans on our shores, it was Chrysler who really invented this category in our country…. and absolutely owned it for years.
