It’s not everyday automakers rework their bread-and-butter midsize sedans. But the embargo on driving impressions has lifted off the 2013 Honda Accord. Autoline honcho John McElroy shares a few of his thoughts on this popular sedan and how he thinks it stacks up to the competition.
While the rest of the Autoline crew is hard at work in Paris, we lucky stiffs get to observe from afar. With the Autoextremist leading the charge, we’ll take a look at the most important reveals from the 2012 Paris Motor Show so far. The Maserati Levante, Porsche’s new Panamera wagon concept, the Opel Adam, Jaguar F-Type and VW Golf are all on the docket. Plus, we’ll discuss the rough week had by EV makers like Fisker and Tesla. Joining Peter De Lorenzo to talk about all these topics and much more are Gary Vasilash from Automotive Design & Production and Jim Hall, majordomo of 2953 Analytics.
Join John McElroy for a personal tour of the Mondial de l’Automobile, better known in North America as the Paris Motor Show. Guests include Johan de Nysschen, the man who has been challenged to transform Infiniti into a competitive global brand. John also talks to Jim O’Sullivan and gets a peek at the brand new Mazda6, including a version we won’t see in the U.S. Plus a look at some of the coolest French concept and production cars to debut at the show. What is the best looking concept at this year’s exhibition? McElroy gives you his answer. All that and way, way more.

After the midsize sedan chunk of the market, the C-segment is the most competitive in the automotive world. It seems like every manufacturer offers a stellar compact car these days. Nissan’s latest salvo into the heart of this market is its completely overhauled Sentra for 2013.
Opel is in BIG trouble. The German automaker’s woes are a major drag on GM’s financial performance, but it doesn’t have to be that way. “Dr.” John McElroy has a prescription to cure the problem, and no, it’s NOT more cowbell.
