2015 Honda Fit Reinforces Its Class-Leading Coolness—Set to Hit Showrooms This Spring

We absolutely love the Honda Fit at acardealer.com—every time we gaze inside the
subcompact icon, we can never get over how spacious the little bugger's interior is. It's literally unbelievable.

Well, now Honda is unleashing a handsome new 2015 Fit that boasts many new and improved elements while still retaining its amazing cabin appeal. We have to agree, the car has been re-imagined, hood to hatch.

Put simply, we love the new model more than everr.

Aggressive new styling

Sleek New 2015 Kia Sedona Wows Crowds at New York International Auto Show

One thing's for sure, the new 2015 Kia Sedona ain't your mama's minivan.

At acardealer.com, we view the new van's exterior design to be nothing short of futuristic. Chalk up another styling coup for the innovative Korean car maker.

The minivan in the Kia booth at the New York International Auto Show strikes an aggressive pose as the next-generation Sedona.
The new van captured the attention of New York crowds—in large measure due to the 2015 Sedona's profile, which appears to be a racy affair as far as minivans go. 

The Sedona's roofline sweep and the cheating window line work together to give onlookers the impression that the Sedona is on the move while stationary. As we expected, Kia says the new Sedona will be powered by the Cadenza's 3.3-liter V-6, which should churn out about 293 hp and 255 lb-ft of torque. The V-6 will more than likely be paired with a six-speed automatic. The new Kia Sedona will seat up to eight passengers, and be available with Kia's latest UVO infotainment system.

The details we especially like are the bold chrome-trimmed grille flanked by rectangular headlamps with lots of flashy and appealing LED lighting. A strong crease runs down the sides of the van, while the front fenders are slightly flared. 

For the most part, the new van looks like a larger, taller, and slightly boxier version of the new Kia Cadenza sedan – and that is mighty fine in our book.
 
We’re sure Kia has some clever tricks up its minivan sleeve, too, considering the Honda Odyssey has a nifty built-in vacuum, and Chrysler's minivans feature Stow and Go rear seats that fold into the floor.

Expect the Sedona to also offer most modern safety features, including two key features not offered on the current model: blind-spot detection and lane departure warning.

The 2015 Kia Sedona should hit Kia showrooms in early autumn.


If you appreciate all of the attributes and long-term value of a Kia—any Kia, from Soul to Sedona to Optima, and you live anywhere in northern Alabama or west Georgia, we urge you to consider a short drive to Bramlett Kia in Decatur, Alabama. Right now in Alabama, you can buy a brand-new 2014 Kia Sedona for less than you'd dream possible. That's right! The value-packed, versatile minivan from Kia that offers you an industry-leading warranty plus a highly-competitive low price.

While you're shopping, check out Bramlett Kia's new vehicle specials for all the latest on the best Kia deals in the South.

Before and after the sale, you can count on superior customer care at Bramlett Kia in Decatur, Alabama. And for the best possible deals on pre-owned automobiles, too.  Head to Decatur and make the most of outstanding, savings, selection and service.

2015 Toyota Camry to Boast Major Refresh at This Week's New York Auto Show

Toyota has promised big changes for the updated 2015 Camry and now we at
acardealer.com can report that the new look will draw inspiration from the FR-S sports car. Much like the Corolla and Avalon received FR-S-style front-end treatments, the Camry will also make the switch for 2015, according to media sources.
 
Describing the front-end design as “aggressive,” reports say there will be a large lower mesh grille with the Toyota logo above it.  The rear end styling, based on spy pics, will be more like that of the Lexus ES.

Certainly, the hyper-competitive mid-size sedan market (in America especially) has demanded Toyota designers step up their game. To put it bluntly, the old modest, bland updates of the past just won't keep the Camry at the top of its mid-size perch anymore. Not if Toyota's brass wants to sell another 400,000+ units like they did in 2013.

Early cues indicate the new look will stir up the marketplace with bold touches hood to trunk. Also, we hear the interior has received significant updates and will sport much better styling and technology than Accord.

What isn’t yet known is if the powertrains will receive updates, though there has been no news to that effect. Currently Toyota offers a choice of 4-cylinder and V6 engines mated to a 6-speed automatic. Most likely, engine choices will continue to include a frugal inline-4, smooth V-6 and economical hybrid powertrain. But we expect modest gains in horsepower and fuel economy across the engine lineup.

As we said, the 2014 New York International Auto Show opens to the public on April 18. Undoubtedly, the newly sculpted 2015 Toyota Camry will be one of the show's most celebrated stars.

Stay tuned!


Even more important, stay tuned to local news about the upcoming 2015 Toyota Camry. And if you're in the market now for a great-looking, great-performing 2014.5 Camry, head over to Atlanta's best-loved Toyota dealer, Stone Mountain Toyota at 4400 Stone Mountain Highway in Lilburn.

Stone Mountain Toyota is the most dependable dealer in town for spectacular Monthly Web Specials and a sweet deal on new and pre-owned Toyotas, plus other fine used vehicles. The lineup for 2014 is awesome overall and if Toyota makes it, you'll find it at a terrific low price in Stone Mountain.

We know the savings, service and selection at Stone Mountain Toyota will give you the best ownership experience you've ever enjoyed. That's true for Camrys, and every other class-leading Toyota vehicle.

Chrysler Is Serving Up Its 2015 200 Sedan with an Appealing American Design Along with Tasty Italian Ingredients

The 2015 Chrysler 200 made its in-the-metal debut at this year’s Detroit auto show, and will arrive in showrooms very soon this spring. Pricing starts at $22,695, which sounds right to us at acardealer.com. Still, we need a legitimate test-drive to sort out whether Chrysler got the entire vehicle right.

The only thing the new 200 shares with the old car is its name. That's a good thing. The outgoing 200 and its predecessor, the Sebring, were based on an aging architecture from the MitsuChrysler era and were among the more uninspiring sedans (and convertibles!) on the market.

Nobody will say that about the new 200. Inside and out, it's an impressive, high quality, high tech car packed with style and the kind of innovative technology that shows just how damn good American cars can be these days. It deserves to steal some sales away from the hordes of Camrys, Accords and Altimas out there. The question is, can it and how many?

Here's an interesting fact that is worth your consideration.

Did you know one of every six cars sold in America is a mid-size sedan? Yes, despite our newfound love of crossovers and our longtime affair with the pickup truck, we're still a Sedan Nation. It's a critical segment, and nearly every offering in it is very good these days. You have to bring your best Kung Fu to the midsize sedan game. 

Yet, sales are just one reason the new 200 is a big deal for Chrysler. In a larger sense, it symbolizes their attempted comeback perhaps more than any other new car in their lineup.

The 2015 Chrysler 200 comes in four different trim levels: base LX, slightly nicer Limited,
more sporting-y 200S and the premium 200C. The 200 gets new engines, too. You can either have the 2.4-liter, MultiAir-equipped TigerShark four cylinder putting out 184 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque or the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with 295 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque.

Front-wheel drive is standard, but the V6 can also be had with a very slick all-wheel drive system. Most important, the soon-to-debut Chrysler 200 comes with the company's vaunted new ZF nine-speed automatic transmission as standard equipment, the only car in this class that does. 


The 2015 Chrysler 200 should be in showrooms in a matter of weeks. In the meantime, you should be able to pre-order the groundbreaking vehicle at your favorite Chrysler dealer. We heartily recommend metro Atlanta's premier Chrysler retailer, Akins Jeep-Chrysler-Dodge-Ram in Winder, GA. Take the time to visit one of Georgia's most highly-regarded dealers and get the best price possible on all types of Chrysler products.

If you're ready to buy now, remember Akins' Monthly Web Specials will save you thousands

on your favorite Jeep-Chrysler-Dodge-Ram models. Check them out and get an outstanding deal now on a 2014 Chrysler 200 LX sedan—a great car with an even greater discount.

Visit the web site, or make the short drive to Winder, then you'll be in the right place to drive home incredible savings—not to mention unrivaled service after the sale at Atlanta's first choice for savings, service and selection, Akins Jeep-Chrysler-Dodge-Ram.

Infiniti G Fans Unite! G37 Sedan to Be Renamed Q40 and Remain in Fleet (at Least through 2015)

The old (but still available) G37 sedan will be renamed the Q40 for 2015.

That news may have you asking yourself two questions, namely “Why is Infiniti selling the old G37 when it has its successor, the Q50, in dealers?” and “Why in the world does this car need a new name?”

Answer one first: It positions the car better within the nameplate ladder in effect by Infinit's recent spate of  badge changes. The new name also removes—at least superficially, since the car itself still exists—ties to the previous era of Infiniti products. Answer two: With all respect, we don't understand Infiniti's new Q-centric nomenclature. Put simply, it's altogether confusing.

More to the point, to pin down why the G is still available, acardealer.com sources say Infiniti dealers are mirroring Nissan dealers, selling the brand’s cars to a price. But we would
suggest offers in circulars aren’t a path to lofty profits and residuals for a luxury brand, and the G37/Q40 allows Infiniti to wean its dealers off bad habits by giving them a single car to advertise on special. Perhaps more important, though, it provides a price floor below which the Q50 will never go.

Infiniti insiders say the brand should keep producing the G37 under the Q40 nameplate because they are both great cars and both have a lot to offer The Q40 should still appeal to Infiniti fans because the price is right and the re-badged G37 is still quite competitive in its market segment.

After all, the likable G sedan has always given the BMW 3-Series a run for its money!



Where in the world will you discover G37-Q40 vehicles at the right price? Where can you take advantage of Sign & Drive offers that are precisely what you need?  Because we know the product and the dealer, we at acardealer.com highly recommend that you drive A.S.A.P. to Roswell Infiniti of North Atlanta, for an informative, satisfying test drive.

While you're at it, keep in mind that right now, you can drive home a G37 at a sensational, low lease payment. At less than $300 per month, we believe that is one amazing offer too good to pass up!

Whether it's the G37, newly rebadged Q40 or the hot new Q50, you'll discover the selection, savings and service at Georgia's Number One Infiniti Dealer to be well ahead of the competition.
