CarTalk March 7, 2016

Well what happens when you take a guy who loves cars and a motoring journalist and put them into a studio?

We set out to set the world straight about the best and worst cars on the road!

The notes.

-Chev Spark?
-Mitsubishi outlander?
-Volks ads for all sorts of cars!
-new ford escape has windshield wiper de-icer!
-new mustang coming?
The new Chevrolet Camaro is spectacular. In our comparison test between the new Camaro SS and the Ford Mustang GT, the Chevy came away with the victory as we declared it to be “rippling with American muscle, but as sophisticated as European iron.” The stiff competition from Chevrolet could be one reason that Ford reportedly is moving up the debut of its seventh-generation Mustang.

Will we get a volks sportwagon?
If you were to find yourself browsing Volkswagen’s Golf SportWagen lineup, it might come as something of a surprise to discover that the base S model starts at $22,445—and that the mid-level SE starts at $27,845. That’s quite a pricing gap from the entry-level model to the next-least-expensive variant. Volkswagen is fixing that situation, however, with the 2016 SportWagen Limited Edition, which slots between the S and the SE and brings a host of driver-assistance and convenience features that aren’t available on the S—and a few that are available on the SE.
