Volvo and WWCOTY

The Women’s World Car of the Year awards results just came out and the Volvo XC 90 won.

I drove the Scion iA, Chevy Malibu, and the Honda HRV this week. The Scion iA was around $17,000, the Honda HRV around $27,000 and the Chevy Malibu was around $35,000. All three are in the North American Car and Truck of the Year running.

The Honda HRV was my favorite for value and price. It’s a new segment competing against the Mazda CX-3, both vehicles are great.

Let’s chat about cars.
