reading completely all new models, or that this segment is finally cooling off a bit. But whatever the case may be, it seems that with all of the changes made to previous models, no one remembered the main thing. Good Style.
This year we see the arrival and the departure of some companies. We welcome Chery, Samsung and Suzuki into the mix, and bid a farewell to Pontiac. Although the Pontiac G6 may be leaving us, it is not lost. With the arrival of the second-generation Opel Insignia platform, comes the new Buick Regal, taking over where the Pontiac G6 has left us. The only problem with this is that the buyers of Pontiacs are a bit different than those of Buick.
Well with everything that the auto industry has been through this year, its hard to believe that some car companies are willing to risk it all for a piece of that mid-size pie. With the Mid-Size market being one of the biggest in the world its hard not to notice that when some companies fail, it is usually due to a lack of a good mid-size model. Just take a look at the fall of Chrysler, all it has is the Avenger and Sebring, and really who wants to drive an up-dated K-Car around anyways.
Now for the best and the worst of the year. This year AutoLooks A+ award, goes to a car, which has never seen the AutoLooks pages before and also has an odd look and feel to it. So, for this year we name the 2010 Pontiac G6 the A+ winner.
And for the worst car of the year, we have to look at one of the worst mistakes a parent company could do. With that major mistake, this company could lose its remaining street-cred to the new kid on the block. And for its failure to remain a luxury inspired model, we name the 2010 Subaru Legacy the Rusty car of the year.
