CarTalk with Miss_Auto_know October 2017

Talking cars is one of the things we do a lot of on Nightline and every Monday night we have a co-host in the studio to walk us through  the must and must not buy in cars.

This week we had a twist and @Miss_Auto_Know joined us to shed some light on the issues and questions about your rolling stock issues.
Alix knows her way around a car as a professional race driver, stunt driver and general know it all, in a good way, about all things automotive.

Here is what we set out to speak about.

We just launched in August and could not believe the feedback! Over 700 women with questions about cars, asked to join our closed group in the first 48 hours. Now we have nearly 2000 followers on Instagram with an average of 20 comments per post. The YouTube channel is growing with comments and views reaching nearly 4000 and we have appeared on Dubai Eye's Drive Live, are hosting a TV series for Ford, have been recruited as the latest writer for The Nationals motoring section AND... I will be hosting the main stage shows at the Dubai International Motor Show! Not to mention the website which has been launched and I have a content calendar with a list as long as your arm, so I can’t wait to get creating and would love your support.


Working with Miss Auto Know is a great way to introduce a bunch of new people to your brand, especially when it comes to targeting the growing number of female decision makers in the car buying market.


​I hope this gives you the information you need and I look forward to seeing you in the studio.

-Maxima, think this car is not getting the love it deserves!


-Evoque convertible thoughts?


-Is there a women’s car?


-you were a mini cooper driver I don’t feel the love should I


-Ford Taurus, thoughts?


-Q. Looking for a sporty little convertible, Peugeot? Mazda? What are the options


-The commuter to Abu Dhabi, Malibu, Mazda 6, what about a good old SUV any suggestions for comfort and fuel economy?


-Kia and a sports car? Would you?
Kia will take to the SEMA Show later this month with a modified version of its Stinger fastback sedan that it developed with West Coast Customs. This tuned version gets a number of high-performance enhancements, including a widened body, lowered front and rear suspension, gloss black front grille, carbon fiber aero kit, 21-inch forged wheels, widebody fender flares, rear diffuser and squared-off exhaust tips.
The Stinger is a fastback sedan and the brand's first GT offering, inspired by the grand touring cars of the '60s and '70s, designed in Frankfurt and developed on the Nurburgring circuit. When it goes on sale in December, it'll come in a choice of two engines: a base 2.0-liter turbocharged four pushing out 255 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, and a GT version with a 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 generating 365 hp and 376 lb-ft that's also found in the Genesis G90. It also comes in rear- and all-wheel-drive configurations, with standard Nappa leather interior and plenty of passenger and cargo space. You can read our First Drive impressions of the GT version here.


-A used mustang as a good bridge between an SUV and a sports car, not a total mid-life crisis cure, thoughts?


A Gwagon final edition, nice, will they really go?
After nearly four decades on the market, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class is ready to be put out to pasture. The first model to go is the top-tier Mercedes-AMG G65. The G-Wagen has only received minor updates over its life, doing just enough to keep things relatively fresh. Compared to modern SUVs and crossovers, the G-Wagen can only be described as charming, though good luck finding a crossover with three locking differentials and a twin-turbo V12. In order to celebrate the G-Class' legacy and end of G65 production, Mercedes-AMG has revealed the G65 Final Edition.
