Re: UPDATE: Interview With GM's Lutz -- A Voice From The Other Side
___The only thing I have to say is GM is being embarrassed on the low end by the likes of the Yaris, Fit, Corolla and Civic. In the mid-range area, the upcoming Jetta TDI at maybe $20K for an S and a stick (if they come equipped that way?) will do damage to GM’s views on small diesels let alone the $22K HCH-II’s and Prius hybrids. On the high-end, the upcoming BMW 335d and/or Audi A4 w/ its 3.0L TDI will have all the FE of one of their compacts but with larger size, far more amenities and performance (it is a BMW and Audi after all). What will they hide behind then? Then the 50 mpg European Ford Mondeo is every bit as large as their current Malibu only with close to double the FE?
