A sexy sedan makes an even better-looking wagon. Check out the +Jaguar USA XF Sportbrake. Hope it makes it to the States!

After months of interviews, writing and editing, it's finally here. My in-depth look at the trend of engine downsizing in the industry. Thanks again to everyone who helped me with this!

As a Sonata turbo owner, only improvements I'd suggest are better-bolstered seats in the SE (they're the same as the GLS) and slightly larger brakes. LED taillights and HID headlight option would be nice. No complaints about power. Oh yeah...and a wagon version that looks like the Euro i40. :-)

The engine downsizing trend is moving beyond the compact realm. At what point is a larger, normally-aspirated six-cylinder more appropriate? Is a turbo-four in the +BMW USA 5 Series taking it a step further than it should go? Read +Frank Markus' insightful blog.

If they market it as an econo-sport engine I see no problem with it as long as the M5 keeps the V-10

Amazing the car came together as fast as it did considering everything else going on. Hopefully David can break into the 10s on his next quarter-mile attempt! :-)

Agreed. The Germans have fallen totally off the wagon in this regard, and show no signs of climbing back on. It gets even worse if you add the crossover models into the mix. Take +BMW USA's x3 28i, x5 35d, etc. And we all know the "28s" aren't even six-cylinders anymore. Same with the +Mercedes-Benz USA C250.

I feel the five-cylinder is vastly under-utilized in +Audi USA's current product lineup. As a child of the '80s and '90s, the I-5 engine was a key part of Audi's identity, at least to me. It should be offered in many more of its models, IMHO.

+Volkswagen USA didn't have the greatest success with the first Phaeton in the U.S. market. Will this time be different?

Since Plymouth is no more, could the Barracuda be the first model launched natively under +Chrysler Group LLC's SRT brand? The 392 Hemi is pretty bad-ass even tasked with tugging 4300 lbs around. Imagine if you lightened the load by 600 lbs. Bring it! Okay, so it's been announced that the next Viper will be branded SRT, but the model name was pre-existent. I'm going to go way out on a limb and suggest a EPA/CARB-certified version of the tasty new aluminum block 426 Hemi crate engine. A new Hemi 'Cuda with a legit 426...What could be better?

Can anything stop +Kia Motors America? They've sure come a long way from the Sephia. What are your thoughts on a E-Class/5 Series fighter from Kia?

Interesting the +Chevrolet Code 130R did so well with younger people. It definitely has a unique look. Please change the name, though. :-)
