AutoComplete: Car sales are at their slowest in 60 years
Here is what's making news on Road Show.
People aren't buying cars anymore.
Which isn't to say that they're not buying vehicles.
Those vehicles just happen to be trucks and SUVs.
Sedan and coupe sales are at their lowest point since 1958, but even the cognoscenti can't put their finger on exactly why, beyond people's preference for bigger, taller vehicles.
We've seen this happen before with the station wagon.
And now it seems that sedans and coupes are also quickly going the way of the buffalo.
The technology behind vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication is in its relative infancy, but Hyundai isn't content with waiting for it to develop.
To give itself a big leg up in the tech, Hyundai has partnered with Israeli firm Autotalks to develop V2X capability in its vehicles way faster than it could on its own.
V2X will help improve safety for human-driven cars, and is believed to be all but mandatory for future autonomous vehicles.
Volkswagen, no longer content to only sell the world the Tiguan, the Touareg, and the [UNKNOWN] is working on a less crazy version of its T-Cross concept, which debuted in 2016.
It's looking like it'll be a small, four-door crossover, no real surprise there.
Which will likely be sold in burgeoning South American and Chinese automotive markets.
Don't expect us to get it in the U.S but we've pretty much got our German crossover bases covered already.
