Developing a new SUV is the norm these days. Sometimes it is at the expense of cutting a sedan, coupe, wagon, or hatchback from the lineup. In this case, the 2020 CX-30 has not replaced any single model.
In an age where the SUV and crossover are the bane of our existence, we often forget that a small car will do. The advantages are clear – if you don’t need a lot of space and can carry average-size folks and their luggage across town or further afield, then you really don’t need an SUV. Especially one that may be of the same size as your small car.
I’m still picking up from the "cutting room floor" vehicles that did not make the cut back in 2017 for the sake of our ninth anniversary. This is really an exercise that tests my memory, as well as giving a look back at vehicles that have stood the test of time over a decade ago.
One of the new zaibatsu began in Hiroshima on January 30, 1920. The Toyo Cork Kogyo Company opened up for business. It began as a manufacturer of cork items and machine tools to help prop up the growing industrial might of Japan. The fledgling company had its struggles through the 1920s, renaming itself as Toyo Kogyo Co., Ltd. in 1927 while being bailed out by a local bank and other local businessmen after dipping into bankruptcy.
Here we go again! Round 3 of this year’s roundup of vehicles that I worked with but appear elsewhere in the mediasphere. Sometimes, it is hard to track which vehicles were published where. However, CarSoup.com has been getting the lion’s share of my work lately. It is with intention, as they try to build traffic for vehicle reviews before site visitors select which vehicles they should choose from. It works that simply. But, hey, at least V&R gets some traffic on here for our (er, my) reviews. You’ve read them, right?
