We were heartbroken to learn that Alpine wouldn't be offering any A110s in the United States, left as we are lusting for the blue sports coupe from a afar. Now we can lust for it in multiple colors and variants. Alpine has announced that the A110 will now be available in two trim levels, in a (small) selection of colors, and with multiple wheel types.
The two trim levels include Pure, which doesn't come with any special extras and is equipped similarly to the first run of 1,955 Premiere Edition models, and Légende, which adds some comfort and convenience features. Among the equipment included on Légende models are leather-upholstered six-way adjustable seats and carbon fiber interior trim.
For the 2018 model year, Mazda updated the Mazda6 sedan with some design and mechanical tweaks. It will take the stand for its European debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. There, it will be staged alongside the Mazda6 Wagon, which will be getting its own global debut at the Swiss expo.
Unless there's some sort of miracle, we won't be getting the five-door version here in the United States, which is a shame, because it's a beautiful wagon. Customers here — apart from a handful of die-hard fans and, perhaps, the entirety of the American automotive press — prefer something with a bit more elevation to it. Ask a Mazda dealer in Michigan or Arizona for a Mazda6 Wagon, and they'll probably try to sell you a CX-5 instead.
Technology website Gizmodo puts the Lumix DMC-LX7 through its paces, awarding it an impressive four out of five stars. The review notes that the camera is for people who want “stellar quality from a point and shoot, whether it’s set on auto or dialled in with manual controls.” It goes on to compliment the design as being very solid and very comfortable to hold with an LCD screen that is bright and clear.
