A MESSAGE FROM GIANCARLO PERINI, PUBLISHER.

Car designers around the world, please help us to raise this baby. Make it yours.

Yes, you can!

Through the past five years I have been running a blog dedicated to car design with an experimental approach. I was eager to establish a bridge with the design community and to gain experience on the web.

Now, time has come for a new project with broader goals, focuses and reach.

The goal is to establish a very lively «Café littéraire» where professional designers, design educators and students, car and design enthusiasts meet, show their ideas, discuss design matters and trends, contribute with their own reports and stories to the development of a modern design culture, with past experiences and inputs from different cultures.

Please subscribe to our " Newsletter" to keep up with the progress Automotive Design Club International.

And, please, invite all your friends to join us, here and now.

Work is in progress. Be part of it!

WARD'S TOP TEN INTERIORS WINNERS


The editors of the authoritative North American Ward’s magazine have voted the Interior of the new generation Jeep Cherokee as the winner for their 2014 much coveted award.
Ward’s is celebrated world-wide for their Top Ten Engines of the Year and Top Ten Best Interiors nominations and award.

The Jeep Cherokee Limited has topped the favour of the jury and, according to editor Tom Murphy, that is because «it is a well-equipped CUV with an interior that is upscale, boldly styled, comfortable and, yes, rugged and its fetching interior is pleasant on-road demeanour and available trail-ready drivetrain.

In Murphy’s opinion the Cherokee Limited «is the ideal vehicle for the consumers – and we know there are many – who want a Jeep for its brand image and because it feels good on dirt roads and in the snow and driving across expanses of green grass that serve as makeshift parking lots during the summertime festival season».
On their score sheets, Wards Auto editors praise the Cherokee’s roominess, excellent build quality, sparsely used metallic accents, easy access to driver information and the bold colours. However, value for money has been the key factor.

    Indeed in absolute terms the Jeep would have had a hard time in comparison with the “smaller” Chrysler 200C, also a finalist; the Chevrolet Corvette, the $ 122,895 Mercedes-Benz S550 or the $ 372,800 Rolls-Royce Wraith.
    Here is the complete list of the Top Ten finalists, which shows how the finalist comes with prices ranging from the $24.010 Kia Soul+ to the Rolls Royce, listed at a price that is more than 15 times that of the compact Korean sub-compact family car.
