• MINI
    MINI is both the name of a subsidiary of BMW, and a car produced by that subsidiary since 2001. The car is marketed as a retro redesign of the original Mini, which was manufactured by the British Motor Corporation and its successors from 1959 to 2000. Essay writing To distinguish it from its predecessor (the 'classic Mini'), the brand name for the new car is MINI (written in capital letters). It is often called 'The BMW MINI', 'The New MINI', or simply 'MINI'. The MINI is manufactured in Cowley in Oxford, United Kingdom, in what was historically the Morris car plant.
  • More than any full-line manufacturer, BMW's reputation is built on its vehicles' performance. Arguably the originator of the luxury sport sedan class with its model 2002 in the early 1960s, BMW has always emphasized optimal weight distribution and handling, though it now goes toe-to-toe with competitors for power as well. BMW's lineup now contains numerous crossovers and, for 2011, the company's first hybrid models.The descendant of the 2002, the compact 3 Series comes in coupe, sedan, wagon and convertible versions, with a choice of two gas and one diesel engine and rear- or all-wheel drive. Like the convertible version of the 3 Series, the current generation of the two-seat Z4 roadster is a retractable hardtop rather than a convertible soft-top. The subcompact 1 Series, introduced in 2008, is a two-door coupe or soft-top convertible whose high price has held back its sales. The newly redesigned midsize 5 Series sedan continues in the U.S. market, though its wagon variant will no longer be imported, replaced by the peculiar 535 Gran Turismo, a four-door hatchback with a coupe roofline. The related 6 Series coupe and soft-top convertible continue in their first generation. Also redesigned for 2010 is the 7 Series flagship sedan. Crossovers include the five-seat compact X3, the midsize X5 -- which comes in five- or seven-seat versions -- and the X6, a four-door based on the X5 but having a controversial coupelike profile. It seats four.In addition to gas engines, BMW offers hybrid drivetrains for the X6 and the 7 Series, and diesel engines for the 3 Series and X5. BMW's M division currently offers high-performance versions of the 3, 5 and 6 Series as well as the X5 and X6.Headquartered in Munich, BMW is an independent company. It also owns Mini and Rolls-Royce.
  • Though it's a smaller player in the U.S. market than the domestic and many Asian automakers, Volkswagen is a global automotive juggernaut, grouped with Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini and two brands not sold in the U.S., Skoda and SEAT. In the U.S., Volkswagen is known for premium cars and SUVs with high-quality interiors that command higher prices than do comparable mass-market vehicles. A diesel-car veteran, VW offers TDI clean-diesel versions of several cars and crossovers.Broader than ever, the VW product line starts with the compact Golf two- and four-door hatchback and its revered performance version, the GTI. Sedan and wagon shoppers are satisfied by the Jetta, which was recently redesigned and is now larger than the average compact and more affordable than before. The 2010 model is the last for the iconic New Beetle, in hardtop and convertible forms. This will leave the compact retractable-hardtop Eos as VW's sole drop-top. The midsize Passat sedan and wagon continue, accompanied by the newer CC, a four-door based on the Passat that has a coupelike roofline. VW's two crossovers are the compact Tiguan and the midsize Touareg. The Touareg, which shares a platform and six-cylinder engine with the Cayenne from majority owner Porsche, was recently redesigned and is now lighter and more efficient. It also offers an optional hybrid drivetrain, VW's first, which is also shared with the Cayenne.In an unprecedented and questionable move, VW teamed with Chrysler to produce the Routan, a minivan that's based heavily on the Chrysler Town & Country and built at the same factory.Headquartered in Wolfsburg, Germany, Volkswagen Passenger Cars is part of the Volkswagen Group, majority owned by Porsche AG.
  • Toyota is a full-line vehicle manufacturer and variably the first or second largest global producer. Toyota's hard-earned reputation for reliability and quality was tarnished in 2009 and early 2010 by a series of high-profile recalls. Toyota has visibly allowed some of its strongest products -- often the best-sellers within their segments in the U.S. market -- to slip in terms of quality and competitiveness. Still, Toyota remains a high-volume seller and a leader in hybrid vehicles.Toyota's lineup begins with the subcompact Yaris, which comes in sedan and both two- and four-door hatchback forms. Next is the Corolla compact sedan, a best-seller that has been surpassed by many competitors. Though it's considerably larger, the Matrix hatchback shares the Corolla's platform. The midsize Camry sedan remains a best-seller, and the recently refreshed Avalon full-size sedan is an impressive combination of comfort, space, power and efficiency.Toyota's crossovers start with the RAV4, a compact that seats up to seven with an optional third-row seat. Arguably a large wagon rather than a crossover, the Venza seats five and offers generous cargo room. The Highlander midsize crossover seats five or seven with an optional third-row seat. To accommodate more people you'll need a full-size Toyota. The full-size Sequoia and Land Cruiser truck-based SUVs, and the Sienna minivan, all seat up to eight.Unlike some automakers, Toyota hasn't abandoned the midsize truck-based SUV market. The rugged FJ Cruiser, the company's most capable off-roader, remains, as does the 4Runner, a more comfortable and roomier model that also can go off road and tow heavy trailers.Toyota has the pickup-truck market covered with the Tacoma compact and the Tundra full-size truck. The Tundra has more drivetrain, box and cab options than ever before, but the domestic truck makers still offer more.Along with the hybrid-market-leading Prius, Toyota sells hybrid versions of the Camry and Highlander. Additional hybrids are forthcoming.Toyota is headquartered in Toyota city, Aichi, Japan.
  • Ford is the full-line, mass-market brand of Ford Motor Co., which also sells luxury vehicles in North America under the Lincoln name. With the discontinuation of Mercury and the sale of numerous other premium and luxury marques within the past few years, the company's efforts are squarely on Ford, a global brand. Thanks to a series of impressive new models and the goodwill that comes from being the only domestic automaker not to receive a government bailout, Ford's sales, profits, market share and image are all on the rise. Early to the hybrid market with the Escape crossover followed by midsize sedans, Ford is second only to Toyota in its implementation of truly efficient hybrid systems.Ford's recent additions include the Fiesta subcompact sedan and hatchback, which are sold in many markets worldwide and bring high quality and efficiency to the base of the car lineup. Substantial recent upgrades to the Mustang, including new V-6 and V-8 engines, have improved performance along with efficiency. The Fusion midsize sedan has won many awards, including Cars.com's Best of 2010 award for the hybrid version. A recent redesign has turned the frumpy Taurus into a stylish full-size sedan. The car most recently redesigned was the Focus sedan and hatchback, which hit dealerships in 2011. The new world car replaces a U.S. version that had shared the name but not the quality found in Europe.Ford's crossover offering is extensive, including the compact Escape, the newly updated five-seat midsize Edge and the large Flex, which seats up to seven in three rows. Ford is currently phasing out its truck-based Explorer midsize SUV and half-truck Explorer Sport Trac, replacing it with an all-new Explorer that attempts to blend truck and crossover characteristics. The Expedition and extended Expedition EL full-size SUVs can seat up to eight in three rows.Long overdue for a redesign, the Ranger compact pickup remains in the lineup along with full-size F-Series pickup trucks and E-Series cargo vans in numerous sizes, cab and box styles and weight ratings. A new cargo van from Europe, the Transit Connect, is intended for small-business owners and delivery fleets who don't need a larger van.Headquartered in Dearborn, Mich., Ford Motor Co. is independent and publicly traded.
  • Suzuki is a Japanese manufacturer of cars and motorcycles, among other motorized products. It's best known in the U.S. market for its small cars and SUVs. Despite the occasional strong product, Suzuki struggles to keep a toehold in the U.S.Suzuki's strongest and most competitive product ever in the U.S. market is the Kizashi, a new model that's on the smaller end of the midsize sedan class. Its interior quality, handling and comfort have put some larger automakers to shame. Other models include the competent SX4 compact, which comes as a sedan and a hatchback. A version of the hatchback, called the Crossover, has higher ride height and offers optional all-wheel drive. Suzuki's sole SUV is the Grand Vitara, which is one of the few remaining compact SUVs designed for real off-roading. The tradeoff is lower gas mileage, but its ride is impressively comfortable for a truck. Speaking of trucks, Suzuki sells the Equator, a compact pickup manufactured by Nissan. It's based on the Frontier.Suzuki is based in Hamamatsu, Shizuoka, Japan. Although it's an independent company, Suzuki frequently manufactures vehicles with and for other automakers, including GM.
