    Optima 's k-9 will compete with Hyundai's new redesign 2015 Genesis.

    The K900 will compete with the Equus, not the Genesis. The K900 base price is about $60k, similar to the Equus, while the entry 2015 Genesis is about $39K.

    Audi A/S 6.......... OR.......... Kia k-9... let me think about that for 1 min.........LOL...

    I was planning on buying the 2014 Audi S6 but with my line up already my wife killed that idea. So I settled on a 2013 R-spec Genesis sedan for now...

    Finally driving the Fusion tomorrow. Weather will be warm enough to run it through the car wash and it will be displaying low fuel level when I drop it off on Monday to get the bumper fixed.

    Toyota

    Has another another recall. 6 models with faulty heated seats that may ignite. Check to see if your model is listed.

    I'd hate to be stuck in traffic with my butt on fire..

    They put a stop sale order on them in the USA, but they are still selling the vehicles in Canada. Dunno if we are less likely to catch on fire up here, or if Toyota just doesn't care if we do...

    Drove the Fusion today for the first time in almost a week. It has way more power than I need. I even went so far as to price a 2014 Fusion with the 1.5 ecoboost. Didn't check the fuel mileage difference, but priced out just over 30k before incentives. Wasn't thrilled with the wheel options that could be combined with the features I was looking for.

    Just got back from the 2014 Washington DC Auto Show.

    The two stars of the show on the American side was the new Mustang and Corvette, along with the Aluminum bodied 2015 F-150.

    So, what was new in mid the mid-size segment? The new Chrysler 200! It was very nice looking on the outside, but since it was roped off and on a tall pedestal, interior shots were impossible.

    One of the cars I liked the most was the new Impala. They had a fully decked out LTZ 3.6, jet black with a dark tan leather interior. Beautiful.

    Here is the new 200...

    Sorry for the bad picture quality. Here are two more 200 pics.

    Lots of pics, 360 view, and details on the 2015 200 here:

    http://www.chrysler.com/en/2015/200/

    Looks very Fusion-like outside... which is not a bad thing! Also a 9-speed AT! I think that is unique in the class.

    Did you use the beer goggle app to take those pictures? :p

  • cskicski West Springfield, VAPosts: 1,040

    The camera lens was dirty. My 8 year old kid uses my phone a lot so...

    Anyway, I have more pics of other cars coming ASAP. (I need to sync my pictures folder).

    I watched the introduction of the new 200 on Chrysler's Website. They really seem to have put "all hands on deck" for the 200. I hope they are incredibly successful. High quality interior materials, a sport edition, available V6, 9 speed automatic, available fully disconnecting AWD system, sharp styling... How did the exterior look in person?

    Did I hear right in the TV show about NAIAS that the 200 shares a platform with the Dart and a Jeep model?

    Believe so. Yes on the Dart, and the new Cherokee is built on a version of that platform too.

    2013 Acura RDX (wife's), 2007 Volvo S40 (when daughter lets me see it), 2000 Acura TL (formerly son's, now mine again), and new Jetta SE (son's first new car on his own dime!)

    It had better be good, as it is competing in the "family sedan" market, which has formidable competition. But you can get the 300 HP V-6 with AWD, and that's something not many competitors can match. The 200 also shares the platform with the Alfa Romeo Giullieta. The "old" 200 was a pretty much nothing car, so this one has really got to improve on the name.
