Think You Know New Cars?

Posted in Car Buying, Cool Stuff, Featured, Games, RideLust Review by Kurt Ernst | February 19th, 2011 | 11 Responses |

Sadly, I didn't review this one.

In the last year, I reviewed some 50 cars, trucks and SUVs for RideLust. Some I liked, some I really liked, and some I struggled to find something positive to say about. Below are pictures of ten of these vehicles, and your challenge is to name the make and model from what you see in the picture. Some are easy (OK, some are REALLY easy), while others are a bit more… challenging. I’ve taken the liberty of deleting manufacturer’s logos, so don’t expect any obvious help from the photos. I’ll give a week or so to figure them out, then I’ll post the answers. Since my clues helped too much on the Name-The-Driver-From-His-Helmet quiz, you’re on your own here.

There isn’t any significance to the order the pictures are posted in, and I didn’t just pick my favorites from the last year. I suppose you could go back through each and every review I wrote (if you have some serious time you need to kill), but I shoot dozens of images for each car reviewed. The chance of me using the same picture in a review isn’t very high. Good luck and hit me up if you really need clues.

      Sorry about that smiley face, I dont know how that got in there.

    • Kurt Ernst says:

      Ding, ding, ding – we have a winner!

      The smiley face emoticon automatically comes up when you type the number eight, then close parenthesis. If you insert a space – 8 ) – it doesn’t do it.

    1. No idea.
    2. CTS-V, the odd angle in the window gives it away.
    3. Again, no idea.
    4. ….i’m drawing another blank.
    5. Charger
    6. …..it’s very beige. Other than that, nada.
    7. Others called it.
    8. Prius type car.
    9. Camaro.
    10. Mustang.

    • Kurt Ernst says:

      Canrith, you’re right on the ones you guessed. “It’s very beige” made me laugh – the Nissan cube is beige in more ways than one…

  4. Will says:

    1. Not sure…
    2. Cadillac CTS-V Coupe
    3. I’m guessing some sort of VW.
    4. Unsure again.
    5. Dodge Charger
    6. Nissan Cube (yuck)
    7. Infiniti G37 Convertable
    8. Hybrid of sorts. haha
    9. Chevrolet Camaro SS
    10. Ford Mustang

    • Kurt Ernst says:

      Will, you are correct.

      #1 is the Hyundai Equus; not too many on the roads just yet.

      #4 is the Honda CR-Z; I thought that would be an easy one since it’s the only car I can think of with those storage bins instead of the back seat.

      #8 is the Chevy Volt, which technically is a serial hybrid (instead of a parallel hybrid)
