So Toyota is killing the Avensis in EU too.
I just wikied the Ford Mondeo and the engines start from 1 liter up to 2.
The Accord on the other hand starts from 2 liters up to 3 and a half.
Obviously someone is doing something wrong.

There is room for Acura. Infinity and Lexus failed because they didn't downsize their engines, sure a V6/straight 6 sounds great but most cannot pay the taxes for it.


If you have the cash to buy an Lexus or Infinity in the first place, you'll also have the money to pay taxes for it. Toyota seems besides Mazda pretty much the only manufacturer that doesn't screw their customers with retarded micro-machines.

It's about time that countries outside Europe retaliate and introduce strict PM & NOX emission laws. Then "Herr Downsize-Turbocharge" will be screwed for a change.

I love natural aspirated engines myself. Unfortunately we don't have a free market in EU.

Here a government politician who was in charge of ministry of transportation, (and is pretty wealthy) falsificated his license plates to avoid taxation of about 4K euros per year.
When they caught him, the fine he had to pay was 70K euros. You see it is not about affordability, no one likes to pay taxes, not even the ones that make these rules.

Wha'?

The US-Accord is only sold East of the Caucuses.

EU is a TSX with a K20 or N22D.

But it's true that Honda's turbo chainsaw engines aren't ready yet & the car's too old for the new 1.6 Diseasel.

Also K24 on Type S (manual-only in some countries) or the Executive (auto-only in some countries). Model names and specs may vary among countries.

@Rolled - maybe you've answered this in other threads, but what is the plan with the Crosstour? Nothing in terms of a concept planned for this year's auto show circuit?

I guess I expected a revamp on it no long after the Accord but clearly there are other priorities - like the new Civic. I'm asking because it still seems like such a missed opportunity and I'm in the market for an AWD wagon/small CUV.

I don't think Pilot will be at Detroit. More likely Chicago.

LA is HR-V
DTW is FCEV.
2016 Civic (FMC) - NYIAS.



Guys, I wasn't blowing smoke.
