Auto News For Tuesday, April 19, 2016 – Volkswagen’s Deadline Approach


2013 Acura SUV-X Concept

Here are the five must-read, must-watch auto news stories and videos for Tuesday, April 19, 2016.

DEADLINES
“By Thursday, a California court has demanded Volkswagen reach a deal with U.S. regulators,” Automotive News writes. Thursday is really soon.

CDX
We’re about to see a production version of Acura’s sub-RDX Honda HR-V based crossover at a China debut. Is it North America bound? It would certainly make a whole lot of sense for the CDX to take on the Mercedes-Benz GLA, BMW X1, and Audi Q3. – Autofocus

SENSIBLE SHOES
Are big wheels getting out of hand? The GMC Yukon Denali is a far better vehicle on 20-inch rims than the optional 22s. Although it doesn’t look as good in the former case. – TTAC

PRIUS
“It’s undoubtedly the best Prius yet, and it will please efficiency enthusiasts more than ever. But it’s not hard to think of small cars we’d rather drive,” Car & Driver says. The Prius is still slow, but the fuel economy figures are outstanding and it’s a big car inside.

WATCH
This week, we’re testing a new 2016 Volvo XC90. For a better look inside than we’ll provide, watch this CarBuyer review of the XC90 from a year ago.
