New York 2011: the duffers

  1. Not too many people in New York own a car. Maybe that’s why
    this is the show where all the hatefully dull cars are quietly unveiled. None
    of these will be coming to Britain and, heck, you can be glad you’re not
     American.

  2. The Chevrolet Malibu. GM’s new mid-sized car isn’t bad; it
    just looks boring. But it’s actually a rebodied Insignia, so it’ll probably be
    pretty good. GM would have been in a right fix if it had managed, as it planned
    in 2009, to sell off its European division, or it wouldn’t have the engineering
    smarts to develop these things. Next!

  3. Nissan’s Versa is about the cheapest new car in the US. And
    boy does it show. Look at those mean little wheels and the miserable lumpen
    tail-end. Next!

  4. On the other hand, maybe being American isn’t so bad after
    all. This show was also the venue for the launches of insanely hot versions of
    the Chevy Camaro and Jeep Grand Cherokee (above).
