Subscription Service as the new leasing option for Volvo

Volvo recently announced that it is offering a subscription based service for owners. Basically for the low price of around $600 dollars you have access to a 2019 Volvo XC40. With a 2 year commitment, your vehicle comes with insurance and maintenance, the driver responsibility will just be to pay the taxea, registration, and gas. Now I wonder how this would work in Michigan, where the insurance rates are among the highest in the country. I’m curious to know if this would be reflected in the price. Just because it starts at $600 doesn’t mean it will end there. Hopefully will learn more about the concept in the weeks to come.

Nissan Titan (Star Wars Edition)

Nissan introduced the customized Nissan Titan following the Star Wars theme from the Rogues last year. From marketing this is becoming a recurrent theme especially when it appears that there isn’t a shortage of Star Wars movies. Living in Michigan, this is the most appropriate look for this time of year. I wish that would have been shown in Detroit.

The new Nissan Kick is another story. The 2018 compact SUV is short on the concept of utility. More suited as a crossover the lack of all wheel drive as an option will make the potential customer look elsewhere if all purpose utility is a must.

Mercedes Benz CLS
