Demo of the Hyundai Genesis Smart Trunk

Earlier, I posted a MotoManTV video where @girlinthetrunk had a guest appearance at the 2015 Hyundai Genesis launch. But there were some questions about the Smart Trunk feature I loved so much. So, here’s a demo that I captured on Instagram: Keep in mind: The keys are in my pocket, and all I’m doing is... Read more »

First look at the 2015 Hyundai Genesis: @GirlInTheTrunk makes a cameo with MotoManTV
I recently had the chance to test drive the 2015 Hyundai Genesis, and the short version of the review is: I loved it. In fact, I’m hard pressed to find something I didn’t like on this new premium-level Hyundai. In this video, MotoManTV has┬álong chat with Matthew Becker, chief engineer of test and development at...

Ciminillo as a unit of measure

Ciminillo as a unit of measure
My friends are nothing if not creative. I mean, I never meant to end up as a unit of measure. But then one of my friends (cough, @msirach) bluntly asked for my height and weight. Fine, 4’11 and 95 pounds. Yes. I’m petite. Then through voodoo math of some sort, he converted me into cubic-feet.... Read more »

In May, I made ChicagoNow my temporary home for @girlinthetrunk reviews. I had been using a service that shut down, and used this as a temporary resting space while I worked on girlinthetrunk.com. Now it’s up and running, but I warn you, it’s still a work in progress. I only have 4 reviews loaded in... Read more »

2013 VW Beetle Convertible TDI: @GirlintheTrunk is a tight squeeze
During our recent spate of nice weather, I had the chance to test the 2013 VW Beetle Convertible TDI. And, while trunk space isn’t quite what I’d hoped for, there is definitely some usable space back there. Even with the top down. the biggest problem with the cargo space: The narrow opening. While there is... Read more »

@GirlintheTrunk: 2014 Hyundai Equus
For 2014, the Hyundai Equus gets some minor changes, including interior and exterior styling and material upgrades. Additionally, Equus also now comes equipped with BlueLink, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-path alert. One of the big changes, however, is that the rear seat massager and footrest have gone away. While the Equus is a big chauffeur-driven... Read more »

@GirlintheTrunk: 2014 Jaguar F-Type
Last night I had the opportunity to check out the 2014 Jaguar F-Type, which lead to the inevitable question: How many Ciminillos will fit in the trunk? I didn’t think they’d actually let me check it out. But they did. And their social media team was on hand to take a vine. Due to the... Read more »

@girlinthetrunk tests out the Scion tC

@girlinthetrunk tests out the Scion tC
I liked but didn’t love the all-new 2013 Scion tC. With its redesign, the tC takes on a more masculine build with boxy edges and angular lines. With a 2.5-liter, 179-horsepower engine and a 6-speed manual transmission, the tC certainly had some nice get-up-and-go. But, for me, it somehow fell flat. I’m not sure if... Read more »

GirlintheTrunk: 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer EVO
If you read my blog regularly, you’ll know I wasn’t too much of a fan of the 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer EVO. In case you missed it, check out my Lancer vs. Mazdaspeed3 review. But if you don’t want to click through, the basic gist is: Petite drivers, stout drivers or tall drivers need not apply.... Read more »

GirlintheTrunk makes ChicagoNow her temporary home

Today Posterous.com shut down. For those of you who follow me, you know that this housed my (hopefully) funny @girlinthetrunk photo posts with a brief review and some trunked-up commentary. It also includes a look at how many (cough) Ciminillos (a real unit of measure that equals 1.5 cubic-feet) fit in the trunk. So, until... Read more »
