2010 Buick LaCrosse AWDCXL

The Bottom Line: LaCrosse, like all good Buicks, is a grey hair car. Check any Park Avenue on the road and it’s probably silver and the driver has silver hair. LaCrosse should shift that demographic down a bit. It’s super styling, great performance and comfort won’t turn away the grey hairs and should attract buyers with darker hair as well.

2010 Suzuki Kizashi

I can just see it now.

Here comes this sharp silver gray sedan with nice alloy wheels  and nicely chiseled features around the corner. Heads turn. And here comes the question from onlookers: “What was that?”

A Kizashi, that’s; what.  A Suzuki Kizashi.  And if you can’t pronounce or remember the name for now, that’s okay. You’ll have plenty of time to get used to it because this one’s a game changer. And it’s going to be quite the talk of the …

As you might imagine, since this is no ordinary car, the process isn’t pedestrian either. It starts with an astounding decision that awaits prospective customers who will have the delicious task of choosing from 115 so-called “standard” colors–or …

2010 Detroit Auto Show in Review

This year’s North American International Auto Show, while subdued in energy, still popped with unveilings of cars that could figure largely into the upcoming sales year.

Chief among those cars was the all-new Ford Focus, expected to hit the sales floor in 2011 as a 2012 model.  To say that the new Focus is dramatically different from the current model is an understatement of the first order. The new model is snappy and hip looking, and a good example of Ford’s …

2010 Lexus HS 250h

Lots of value, lots of tech. But looks? Well…

These days, everybody wants more for their money.

If you’re a luxury car buyer, you want more styling, more technology, and more value. Add to that equation, more  fuel economy, right?

This year, Lexus has a new car that helps satisfy most of that equation: The HS 250h.

As you might expect, standard equipment is lavish, including a sunroof, fog lights, 17-inch alloys, tilt-telescoping wheel, full power accessories, dual zone climate control, 10 speaker audio …
