  • Only Five Three-Door Hatchbacks Are Left In The United States
    13 Aug 2018

    The three-door hatchback gives off a sporty two-door coupe vibe, while still retaining the practicality of a hatchback. Sadly, the popularity of two-door coupes has been waning in favor of SUVs and practical three-door hatchbacks have suffered as a result. Volkswagen has already killed off three-door versions of the Golf GTI and Golf R.  VW has recently announced the end of several other three-door hatchbacks including the Beetle, Polo, Scirocco, and Up, as well as the Audi A3. Even in Europe where hatchbacks are popular, VW now only sells three three-door hatchbacks: the Audi A1, th...

    Ford made it clear how important SUVs are to the US market when it announced that almost all non-SUV models would be killed off.

  • New Volvo Factory May Already Be Hurt By Trump Tariffs
    26 Jun 2018

    Volvo had barely savored its new factory in Charleston, South Carolina before newly imposed tariffs threatened its future. This plant was opened to build the all-new S60 sedan as well as the next-generation XC90 SUV. Volvo was set to hire around 4,000 new employees, but Automotive News Europe reports that these plans might be up in the air due to the fear of the tariffs.  If these tariffs are imposed, it could have a major effect on Volvo’s new factory. Volvo’s CEO Hakan Samuelsson said that if there are trade barriers and restrictions, they won’t be able to create ...

    20 Jun 2018

    As the automotive industry becomes more global, automakers try to be competitive through any means possible. Some companies are very particular about which suppliers they use, others have decided to join their efforts to simplify and improve their products. Automotive News Europe reports that Japanese car makers are following suit to develop their own new transmission technology.  The country’s nine automakers, including Honda, Mazda, Nissan, Subaru, Toyota, and others, will partner with the country’s two largest transmission suppliers to jointly develop next-generation t...
