Just catching up, funny to see that a few of you were the euro midwest recently. I was in Switzerland again for 3 weeks; my company is based there so I go a few times a year. Noteworthy sighting this time was the new CLS shooting brake thing, in white. Looks nice, not practical, and the local going rate is CHF 125000. The swiss don't finance cars, BTW.

That was me. I saw several shooting brakes in suburban Stuttgart, and an AMG in the fancy showroom attached to the MB Museum.
What I noticed in dirty money respitory/tax avoider paradise (but so clean and orderly and easy to get around) Zurich was Astons - I think I saw multiples of every model, some of them parked amusingly. Lots of high end Porsches too. No worries about ~$8/gallon gas.

Reminds me of a Mazda from the side.
Almost anything looks better than the front end of the Avalon. This new Toyota corporate face loses something on bigger cars.

Zurich is not a low tax Canton. At all.

I see a bit of Escape, but then again when the Escape came out I saw a freshened RAV4.

Compared to Zug?
Money doesn't rush in because of the scenery.

I see Mitsu in the front profile. The car looks alright, but it's not really grabbing me - but maybe that's just Toyota styling philosophy. I'm sure it will sell better with the more conventional tailgate set up though. The inside seems much improved.

Saw a new ES today, driver was a 20-something looking male.
But...car had the factory adhesives all over it, and driver was wearing a dealer uniform. So, the car was just out being fueled or tested. Still, probably one of the youngest ever to drive a new ES - even if the ads show drivers not much older

Actually we are... this is an article about the JPN model coming here. It looked similar but with what I could tell, it had better lines.
