1981 Oldsmobile Toronado

Slurping gas at a 16.8-mpg rate, the Oldsmobile Toronado was the 8th thirstiest vehicle tested by Consumer Guide in 1981.

A lot can happen in the span of eight years. An industrious student can get through medical school, the United States can elect two presidents, and the television show Full House can run its full eight-season course.

New Car colors for 2017

Damon takes a closer look at the most-interesting colors seen at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show.

2017 Chicago Auto ShowBored with beige? Sick of silver? Weary of white? Tired of tan? Chagrined by champagne? Troubled b… OK, sorry, we’ll stop. Though muted, conservative colors seem to dominate in the new-vehicle marketplace, most manufacturers offer at least a couple unusual hues in their factory-paint palettes. Auto shows are a great place to see these colors up close and in person on a new vehicle, instead of looking at a computer screen or a paint chip at the dealer. If you’re an extroverted type who wants your ride to turn heads, an out-of-the-ordinary color is a great way to do it. Keep in mind, however, that these colors can fall out of fashion much quicker than the “safe” standby colors, which can be an issue come resale time.

There’s nothing like a bit of historical data to put 2016 new-car prices in context. For a healthy dose of perspective, scroll down to the 1973-model-year Mercedes-Benz prices below and just sort of let them sink in.

Today, most wagons are luxury-brand wagons. By our count, there’s just one non-luxury, non-crossover wagon available for sale in the U.S., and that’s the Volkswagen Jetta.

2017 Volvo S90

The all-new S90 replaces the S80 as Volvo’s flagship sedan for 2017. Behind its “Thor’s Hammer” (Volvo’s term) LED headlights resides a choice of turbocharged or turbocharged/supercharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engines putting out 250 and 316 horsepower, respectively. The midsize S90 is going on sale now at prices starting around $48,000.

Scion iMPerhaps it says something about the near-invisibility of your current entry when market-share aspirations for its redesigned replacement are … five percent. But that’s the rather modest goal Volvo has established for the 2017 S90, which replaces the aged S80 as the company’s flagship sedan.
