  1. After driving one due to a lease deal offer I quickly realized it was more of a good RX alternative vs a German competitor IMO.
  2. This class of cars has been in a sales decline for years now, ATS did not sell well and its successor will likely meet the same fate of bargain leases to clear inventory. The segment got more competitive, and buyers moved on the the X3 and the like. I fail to see the point of investing money in the CT4 it unless it will sell decently in China. I would rather see an X3, GLC competitor from Cadillac.

    Review: 2018 Mazda CX-9 vs. Volkswagen Atlas

    In the Ranier's time, off the top of my head, give me a 2007 4Runner Limited... In the Envision's time, give me almost any other ~45K two row CUV released in the last two years.

    Review: 2018 Mazda CX-9 vs. Volkswagen Atlas

    My SO likes the CX-9 more than most CUV's because it is stylish and smallish for a 3 row CUV, but then she is 5'0" and we don't have 3 kids.. I wonder how it compares to the 2019 Sorrento V6.

    Review: 2018 Mazda CX-9 vs. Volkswagen Atlas

    27mpg combined is pretty impressive for a vehicle that large (the Atlas), though I wonder how the performance and MPG would suffer had it been the AWD model.
  6. I would rather they invested in their other models at this point given this is built in Europe by Opel for GM.

    Quick Drive: 2018 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Sport

    Legacy and Outback are about as far from sport you can get these days.

    2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Hybrid

    Looks wise inside and out this makes me think 2008...

    Audi News: 2019 Audi Q3 Gets Overhauled

    New Q3 appears to be about 4-5 inches less in length than the XT4. Will be interesting to see which version(s) of the 2.0T the Q3 gets in North America.
  10. Not with the current Encore powertrain. I don't think they are in the same class with the arrival of the new Q3 and the options available with it.
  11. Agreed on the new Q3, it might be the first subcompact/small compact CUV I like quite a bit. Current gen is very meh.

    Review: 2018 Toyota C-HR XLE Premium

    I think the upcoming Prius-V will end up being a better CUV than this.

    2018 Buick Regal Sportback Essence

    Have yet to see a Sportback on the road, after seeing the very underwhelming reviews quickly forgot about one I did see perhaps. Mayhem the model run will be short..

    Previous phones I was happy to get 3-4 hours. I think the Snapdragon flagship chips of 2017 and 2018 (SD 835, 845) are very efficient. I find certain apps drain the battery even when idle so I tend to monitor that and uninstall them as they are usually not critical. I uninstalled my work VOIP app as an example. I only use it as an emergency when I'm on vacation, so I install it when I take time off.

    Had to replace my Note 5 last month due to physical damage :( Got a good deal on a OnePlus 5T that has as much ram as my PC (8gb). So far, so good, love the 7+ hours screen time on a charge and 25 miinutes charging to get me through an average day (from 50 or so to 85% for around 2-3hrs screen time). Also love the very lightly tweaked Android and Treble support.
