Go to the barricades: buy the Mitsubishi Outlander II

It is now Outlander in the model range Mitsubishi occupies an intermediate position: between the almost accessible ASX and the flagship Pajero. And in the distant 2006, when the second generation entered the market, there was no compact crossover in the model range – compared to the previous body, the dimensions grew quite large (in some catalogs this model had the prefix XL). Many observers saw this as a marketing miscalculation, because the same year Nissan Qashqai entered the market, who not only became a bestseller, but, in fact, founded the class of compact crossovers.
Partly, Mitsubishi recognized this by releasing competitor Qashqai in 2010 in a failed attempt to pull the blanket over. But back to our search. Despite the solid size and impressive volume of engines in 2.4 and 3 liters, some tend to underestimate this car.

It is worth noting that then, 12 years ago, the reaction to the novelty was quite positive: “Well, this one looks like a car though.”
Indeed, the prototype of the Hover was the Isuzu Axiom SUV. This did not cause any conflict of interest: by that time, the concern GM, which owned the majority stake in Isuzu, decided to curtail the production of Japanese brand SUVs for Japan, the USA and Europe. Axiom just got under this decision.
Chinese designers have kept intact the main lines and proportions of the body, but made major changes to the design of the front, which went only to benefit the model. But the technical “stuffing” of the car was made according to the principle “I made him blind from what was. Continue reading

Five reasons to love and hate Peugeot 308

Welter has repeatedly said that the main thing in the design of Peugeot – the cat’s appearance, and the last “kitty” he turned out very elegant. Initially, the model went into a series in two bodies (three- and five-door hatchback), but less than a year after the start of sales, the Peugeot 308 SW wagon and the two-door coupe-convertible 308 CC were launched into mass production.
