The first thing you notice about motor homes, apart from their ginormous exterior size, is that they all seem to have aftermarket audio systems controlled by near-microscopic buttons. It takes a long time to figure them out and even longer to get yer fat fingers to hit the right buttons. Another thing I noticed right away was that when I turned on the turn signal, the CD player went mute. Weird.
As soon as the covers were pulled off the Arona, we swooped in to get the inside line from our readers – and potential SEAT customers.
“WRC” might not be the longest-running racing game series, but it may have the most entries. The lineup started in 2001 with “WRC,” which was followed by “WRC 2,” “WRC 3” and “WRC4” in 2004 before jumping to “WRC: Rally Evolved” in 2005. The series reverted back to “World Rally Championship” and then moved to “WRC: FIA World Rally Championship” in 2010. After the reboot we’ve seen 2, 3, “Powerslide,” 4, 5, 6 and finally “WRC 7,” which went on sale Sept. 15. It was the first to get a Porsche 911 rally car -- a downloadable extra.
So “Dirt 4” may be a little easier to pick up and play, but “WRC 7” is probably more rewarding in the long run. And running those real tracks, with real drivers and real weather is pretty damn cool. I don’t think it has the same graphic fidelity or smoothness as a “Project Cars 2” or a “Forza” -- though the lighting effects are awesome -- but if you’re into rally, it’s every bit as fun.
Arjay Miller, a longtime confidant of Henry Ford II who helped modernize Ford Motor Co.'s management and financial controls, rising to president of the company in the 1960s, died on Friday, Nov. 3, at his home in Woodside, Calif. He was 101.
There's also no formal name for the SUV yet. Seat has been holding a vote, with the public able to choose their favourite. The current finalists are Talboran, Taranda, Avila and Tarraco. Of those, our money is on the Seat Avila, given that it fits in well with the current line-up of Ateca and Arona. Seat was due to make a formal announcement of the name this month, but that has been delayed due to events taking place in Catalonia.
