All this talk about a facelift of the least interesting crossover on the market, yet the hottest vehicle launch of the year (Mazda CX-9) barely got any talk on CL. :uh:

The Nissan Pathfinder is my least favorite crossover. It does have one of the lower ground clearances. My 2 favorite are the new CX-9 and Highlander. The CX-9 is close to a Grand Chrokee's clearance....

You're arguing against the hottest segment in the industry. You fail to understand the reason people love crossovers and that's fine if they don't appeal to you and that's why different segments...

Mitsubishi has gotten so bad that they come across as a Chinese brand trying to sell cars in the US. I don't even understand how they could let themselves go down the tubes so badly. Of course it's...

Unless you were to try out a 6S+. Then It wouldn't be fine. It would be like saying a 1996 Tacoma is good enough after owning a 2016. :)

It is unfortunate but as with most segments, automakers only build what sells enough to justify. Compact trucks nearly died in the states altogether with only the Tacoma pulling in sales until GM...

The grill is totally generic. Has no design sense at all. Honda/Acura just continue to disappoint in designs. They need all new design staffs.

For some reason they seem to be carrying over the 3 year old Chrometec wheels for the Limited. C'mon Toyota. Part of a refresh is new wheels across all trims.

They did bring a Limited Hybrid to the show. For some reason, this didn't receive much attention and had to be dug up from the hidden end of the internet. The chrome doesn't look too bad. Perhaps...

Why Acura would start using a grill shape taken off of Hyundai and Ford is beyond me. IMO, this is worse than the current one.It's really not that difficult to come up with an attractive and original...

Geez, this is what the standard Prius should have looked like. What's the thinking Toyota??

Front and rear styling so much better.

Looking at that, there's no reason the North American Corolla needs to be different, especially the polarizing front we're getting. This is much more of clean timeless design and to American tastes....

I was hoping Toyota would also bring a Limited to the show along with the SE. I'm curious to see the new wheels on the Limited and what the chrome accented grill will look like. Also, I'm very...

I'm hoping they have also revised the sound system. The JBL in the '14-'16 had many complaints about sound quality for a $40k vehicle.

One of the new things I'm excited about is the available...

I still don't understand why you go 19,000 miles over understanding the consequences when you have another paid off car sitting in the driveway. And apparently this car is good enough that it is...

Interesting that the public perception of old cars is that they were tanks. The reality was that they collapsed like tin foil. They were built with a lot of heavy steel but there was no safety...

Not to mention that the Sedona is the best looking minivan - ever. I now consider KIA to be among the best brands. Their biggest "problem" will always be the name "Kia". As well as sticking with...
