Super Bowl 52: Record betting ends in slight advantage for the books

  Super Bowl 52: Record betting ends in slight advantage for the books Super Bowl 52 produced the smallest win for the books on the Super Bowl since 2011. The report also stated that the $158.58 million total in bets shattered the previous high set last year by more than $20 million. © (Getty Images) Nick Foles According to the report, the books have come out ahead in 26 of the 28 Super Bowls since the Nevada Gaming Control began tracking the action in the NFL's title game in 1991.

Every year, manufacturers produce some jaw-dropping and head-turning cars that are brimming with technology and elegant good looks. However, they’ve also produced vehicles that haven’t hit the mark – and are ones we’d rather see killed off.

We’ve looked through some current cars on sale today and picked out eight that we’d like to see consigned to the history books. 

BMW 2 Series Active Tourer

There’s something that just doesn’t work about the 2 Series Active Tourer. Being front-wheel drive, it doesn’t fit with the rear-wheel-drive ideology that accompanies BMW, and it doesn’t look nearly as sharp as anything else in the German manufacturer’s range.

Aston Martin recalls DB11 to rectify unintentional airbag deployment

  Aston Martin recalls DB11 to rectify unintentional airbag deployment All 3,873 cars that the British luxury manufacturer has built since late 2015 , including the DB11 V8, suffer from a faulty steering column that can inadvertently trigger the driver’s airbag to deploy. The issue stems from the DB11’s steering column, one of the parts in the British GT supplied by Daimler AG. Mercedes-Benz, as well as Inifiniti, has had to recall over a million cars collectively to rectify the same faulty steering columns.The problem itself, a poor electrical ground point, might seem minor, but can cause the airbag to deploy unintentionally.

You should be able to relax knowing where I came from, who I am and why I’m qualified to teach you what I’m about to show you.

It’s also not all that exciting to drive, and though we’re aware that MPVs aren’t designed to offer the driving involvement of a supercar, it’s not exactly what we’d expect from BMW. 

Lamborghini Urus

Lamborghini’s recently revealed Urus may have conjured up a fair amount of discussion but it’s all been somewhat mixed. Many dislike the variety of styling touches that have been crudely carried over from the Italian manufacturer’s supercars, while others find its cabin simply too cluttered.

There’s no doubt that the Urus has performance on its side, but it’s divided more opinion than have most Lamborghinis on sale. That said, those who like to drive a controversially styled SUV will no doubt love the Urus. 

Brexit could force Japanese carmakers out of Britain

  Brexit could force Japanese carmakers out of Britain The post-Brexit future of Japanese carmakers in the UK has been called into question by Japan’s ambassador following a high-level Downing Street summit. Speaking outside 10 Downing Street shortly after a meeting of 19 Japanese industry leaders, the country’s ambassador, Koji Tsuruoka, called Brexit a “high stakes” situation, emphasising the importance of the “continuation of healthy, sound trade relations between [the] UK and [the] EU”.

Suzuki Celerio

Whereas cheap and cheerful cars often make a lot of sense, the Celerio fails to deliver. Its interior is woefully low-rent, while its drive isn’t half as good as those of rival offerings. In addition, it’s incredibly compact which, though helpful around town, means it feels rather cramped inside.

You’d expect this of a small city car, but others make more of the space and offer a better level of interior quality. 

Ford Kuga

The Kuga hasn’t found much favour here, owing to its relatively plain exterior and interior. It’s not a bad car to drive but it lacks any real sparkle. In addition, the cabin feels just a little behind those of key rivals, and its infotainment system is tricky to operate.

Interestingly, just two engines in the range are equipped with four-wheel drive, meaning that most of the time the chunkily designed Kuga won’t be able to live up to its off-road pretences.

"But I should like to know the story which this book tells," said Alfred. A little story called "The Frost King," which I wrote and sent to Mr. Anagnos, of the Perkins Institution for the Blind, was at the root of the trouble.

Vauxhall Crossland X

The quirkily designed Crossland X is the second crossover from Vauxhall following the Mokka and it’s proved to be a somewhat difficult second album. At least it looks interesting, but harsh interior plastics and an overly firm ride do spoil the overall effect.

Pitched against the Peugeot 2008 and Renault Captur, the Crossland X feels just a touch behind the times, and can’t offer the same premium feel that customers in this segment are looking for. 

Audi Q2

The Audi Q2 is an attempt to get a slice of the ever-flourishing compact crossover market. However, the Q2 simply doesn’t have the level of gravitas that you get with other products from the German manufacturer.

Though it does look better in darker colours, the Q2 appears a little dumpy in some shades – and doesn’t look as sharp or interesting as competitors’ cars. Being an Audi, it costs a whole lot more than rivals’ too. 

Toyota RAV4 Hybrid

The Toyota RAV4 was always heralded as a genuinely low-cost off-roader. However, the latest RAV4 with hybrid technology went in the opposite direction and, as a result, simply isn’t as good as the older car.

Also “There are too many cars in our towns and cities and this is making our lives very unpleasant with high levels of pollution and lots of traffic jams.” 3 Not stated. A82 Carol thinks this is the author’s best book so far.

This is mainly down to the car’s powertrain. A woeful CVT gearbox causes the 2.5-litre petrol engine to scream even at moderate speeds, which means it’s not a hugely relaxing place to be with the engine droning away almost constantly. 

Mercedes-Benz CLA

A premium badge doesn’t always equate to a premium driving experience. The CLA is based on the regular A-Class platform – a car that’s both good to drive and easy to live with. Unfortunately, the CLA with its swooping roofline isn’t as practical and feels quite cramped inside.

It’s also stiffly sprung which, when combined with large alloy wheels, makes very harsh – and leagues away from the comfortable experience you’d expect to find in a car in this class.
