    While the Infiniti brand is increasingly known for performance, it doesn’t boast much of a racing heritage. The brand does sponsor the famed Red Bull Racing Formula One team, but outside of that it hasn’t been too active in the world of motorsports. That’s about to change however as the brand is set to become more active in international racing. Nissan’s luxury arm has just announced that it will enter the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship in 2015 with a pair of Infiniti Q50 sedans. Infiniti’s unique foray into the BTCC will consist of a new not-for-profit team that will…

    Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is working overtime to make sure all of their brands have a platform for long-term stability and the next generation of automobiles. They’re putting for so much of an effort that the 2015 Jeep Renegade will actually serve as a test mule and platform for development for future vehicles of all of FCA’s portfolios, according to Senior Vice President of Product Design, Ralph Gillies, who spoke to AutoBlog recently.

    San Francisco carspotting photos tend to offer healthy doses of the unexpected, and we get plenty of it in this late 1960s (maybe early 1970s?) photo of the base of West Portal Avenue in the foggy southwestern part of the city: There’s a couple older imports, an aerial behind the streetcar, and that odd dually GMC among the variety of contemporary cars parked along the avenue. What do you see here?

  • The 2015 Subaru Impreza gains some minor tweaks for the new year

    admin
    20 Oct 2014 | 1:04 pm
    The Subaru Impreza really isn’t anything impressive until you start considering the turbocharged WRX and STI models, both of which are great. But still, the Impreza is a decent no-frills automobile in base form that will get you from point A to B in the same sort of comfort and reliability as anything else in its class. But to keep things interesting still, Subaru themselves updated the 2015 Impreza just slightly to keep the car rather relevant. For instance, the Impreza remains unchanged mechanically and instead, receives some visual updates such as a new and revised front lower fascia…

  • Photo Rendering: Imagine if Volvo made a BMW X6 competitor out of its XC90

    Imagine if Volvo made a stylized XC90 built to compete against the BMW X6. Do you know what it would look like? Well, digital artist, Theophilius Chin does. And recently, he created some renderings of what it might look like, if Volvo ever came up with the idea. Like the BMW X6, this imagination takes the XC90 and the Concept Estate and meshes them together to make a premium and sporty looking crossover. Although no model is actually planned by Volvo, this is a good start for inspiration since Volvo does plan to continue moving its brand upmarket to continue competing against the major…

  • Report: The 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost busted for fake engine noise

    admin
    15 Oct 2014 | 7:11 am
    One of the recent tweaks automakers have been doing in an attempt to keep cars interesting and entertaining is amplifying engine soundtracks, either by clever acoustics or mostly by pumping fake engine noises through the sound system. This has been controversial because anything fake is, well, fake, and it’s just not the same. Why has this become and issue? Mainly because car makers are resorting to turbocharged engines and turbocharged engines have very subdued exhaust notes when compared to naturally-aspirated motors because turbochargers are piped with the exhaust system for boost,…

It is likely, dear reader, that I shall fail you today in my attempt to share my experience from this past weekend, but let me attempt by starting with this: Watkins Glen is perilously wondrous. If the top of the Pyramid of Speed is represented by wheel-to-wheel racing, then racing at the Glen represents the final brick at the summit, cemented by years and years of tireless labor.

Automotive News reports the gathering will occur Monday at the UAW Local 12, with U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown, U.S. Representative Marcy Kaptur, and Toledo mayor D.

    While helping my grandmother hunt for a new car, I tried to steer her towards a Mazda3 Sport. She didn’t take to the “game changer” (which is the tagline for the car’s marketing campaign, not an attempt to cash in on my catch phrase), but I did notice a similar example on the lot. This color, called “Titanium Flash”, looks more like brown to me. As far as I’m concerned, the line between station wagon, hatchback and CUV has been sufficiently blurred that this can qualify as a member of the mythical brown wagon species – and you can get it in a…

    With the highway mostly conquered, autonomous vehicles now must navigate the cities through which they would otherwise pass by, a challenge unto itself with few proving grounds available for research. Mercedes-Benz, however, happened upon a solution not too far from its R&D base in Sunnyvale, Calif. Automotive News reports the automaker is testing its autonomous vehicles at the Concord Naval Weapons Station, a military base decommissioned in 2005 that may be redeveloped in the future. Until then, Concord will be used as a “starter city” for autonomous city driving and…

    2015 Porsche Carrera GTS  Porsche has announced the second generation of the 911 Carrera GTS, ahead of its arrival in showrooms this November. ‘Gran Turismo Sport’– The combination of letters originates from the 904 Carrera GTS, a racecar dating back to 1963 that could also be registered for use on public roads. In the 1980s and 1990s, the 924 GTS and 928 GTS cultivated this principle. It was reborn in 2007 in the form of the Cayenne GTS, and was subsequently applied to the ‘Type 997’ 911 Carrera and the Panamera. With the new model, Porsche is extending the GTS principle…

    A decade from now, automotive gods willing and if everything goes according to plan, we might recognize this MKC as Lincoln’s great escape. That’s escape with a lowercase “e.” Because while the MKC is based on the Ford Escape, Lincoln has finally, gently broken free from its reputation for building overpriced, reskinned Fords. The rudderless luxury brand appears to be gradually learning the fine art of parts sharing that has been so successful for brands like Volkswagen and Audi. READ MORE ››

The tree’s shadow steadily grew as nearby Danville’s ­cotton mills and tobacco warehouses thrived on slave labor, as the vanquished Confederates retreated from advancing Yankees, and, a century later, as water cannons blasted civil rights marchers.

    There’s a real scat storm brewing over at Chrysler, which was just dragged into a legal kerfuffle over its use of the Scat Pack name for high-performance trim levels of various Dodge models. Automotive News reports that Scat Enterprises—a California-based company that makes aftermarket engine parts for Chrysler products, Fords, Chevrolets, and more—has filed a lawsuit that alleges Chrysler and its Dodge subsidiary infringed on its “Scat” trademark with its Scat Pack trim level for the Challenger and Charger. 2015 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack This is round number two…

    30 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    Stereo systems from automakers have gotten so good that it’s often difficult to justify replacing or upgrading the audio components with aftermarket gear, which used to be de rigueur for discerning music lovers. But even as factory audio systems have improved, the weakest link — and the most frequent aftermarket upgrade — remains the need for better bass and a separate subwoofer. Automakers and their technology partners have responded to this shortcoming with dedicated and often larger subwoofers that can pound out low frequencies. Examples include the 10-inch Rockford…

BMW’s two-year research project will study what the automaker calls “highly automated” driving on highways in Beijing and Shanghai. The project will include a number of prototypes that will use digital maps, GPS, radar and cameras, and BMW is partnering with the Chinese internet search company Baidu to provide mapping and cloud services for the vehicles.

Instead, Toyota said it will focus on advanced safety and convenience features that can assist drivers by taking over braking and steering. “Toyota’s main objective is safety, so it will not be developing a driverless car,” Seigo Kuzumaki, Toyota’s deputy chief safety technology officer, said at a seminar outside Detroit last week, which MSN Autos attended.

    While some sort of “eco meter” is now found on many vehicles, which allows drivers to instantaneously check how their driving style affects their fuel economy (and pocketbook), some of the displays are getting even more granular. For example, a 2015 Audi A3 I recently tested had an “efficiency program” display as part of the driver information system in the instrument panel that, of course, shows current fuel economy. But it also displays how certain car features — such as air conditioning — influence mpg. It uses distance traveled and consumption data from the trip computer…

    Tesla Motors unveiled a dual-motor electric vehicle on Thursday as well as a number of driver assistance features. With some of the panache of an Apple product launch, Tesla founder Elon Musk unveiled an all-electric Model S sedan with an additional front motor and drive system.  The new vehicle will be more powerful and have all-wheel drive. While the Model S is the first all-electric production vehicle with dual-motor all-wheel drive, other cars also offer such a system including gasoline-electric hybrids from Lexus and Acura.  Such a system is also available in the new BMW i8 and Porsche…

    Digital Air Strike, leading provider of automotive social media, online reputation and lead response solutions, released the results of its 2014 Automotive Social Media Trends Study at the J.D Power Marketing Roundtable in Las Vegas, Nevada yesterday afternoon. With consumers’ ever-expanding dependence on social media, this study details the specific usage trends of social media and online review sites when selecting a dealership for a new car purchase. The study included an online survey of 2,000 consumers who had purchased a vehicle in the last six months. The study revealed that the vast…

    The best summary I have ever heard concerning our industry comes from Leigh Silver, who puts it like this: “The service operations can be viewed as a combination of running a sales floor, in conjunction with a manufacturing plant, in combination with a shipping yard, in the disguise of a medical practice”. Silver, the senior vice president and general manager of the KEEPS Corporation, goes on to explain: “The work needs to get sold, then make sure it can get completed on time, which includes making sure that all of the necessary parts are there or get there in time, as well as deal with…

    20 Oct 2014 | 8:46 am
    I’ve seen a lot of dealers go from bad to great with the help of phone tracking solutions. These success stories are fun. The dealers improved phone processes, accountability, and visibility. Hot sales opportunities were saved. Phone training had a purpose. Smart marketing decisions were made. I genuinely feel these positive outcomes give my work and company meaning. I sleep well knowing that we made a difference. Let’s be honest though, I’ve seen plenty of not so successful stories as well. These are the ones that keep me up at night. It’s not that the dealer or…
  • Unraveling the Mysteries of Matrix Pricing

    20 Oct 2014 | 7:45 am
    The Many Ways to Increase Gross Profits At least once a month I get an inquiry from a Parts Manager or GM asking how they can improve their Parts Gross Profits by implementing a Matrix. When I ask them what they had in mind I initially get dead silence over the phone, and then “well just give me a formula that will work”. I wish it was that simple, because it’s not. What is Matrix Pricing? By definition Matrix Pricing is “The manipulation of the Mark-up calculation to produce a desired Gross Profit Percentage”. It is commonly in use since most vendors no longer adhere to any…
  • 3 Drivers in the Social Selling Machine and How to Leverage Them

    Social Selling is fundamentally the process you use to help social buyers become customers. There are many strategies and tactics that lead up to the sale but ultimately it’s how you leverage your expertise and provide value that wins it. I was at my local health foods store doing my weekly shopping. A vendor was camped out near the check out offering samples of an energy bar. He asked if I’d like a sample. I’ve tried that brand and I don’t like them so I politely said no. He asked again, “Are you sure? They’re great.” I said no again, with a smile. Then he said, “They’re…

  • Review: BFGoodrich KO2 All-Terrain T/A Tires (Baja Tested)

    Chris Haak
    2 Oct 2014 | 10:57 am
    There are trips that one dreams about, and trips that one never forgets. My trip to Baja to test the new BFGoodrich KO2 All-Terrain T/A tires falls into the latter category. I never before had the opportunity to rub elbows with Baja off-road legends and drive and co-drive roughly 300 miles of the legendary Baja 1000 off-road course, and most likely I never will again. BFGoodrich was so confident in their new all-terrain radials that they flew me and several other journalists to Baja to put the new tires to the test in the environment they were developed in. The tires survived what we threw at…
  • Top Muscle: “Light Painting” the Muscle-Car Masterpieces

    Charles Krome
    12 Jun 2014 | 9:38 am
    I made an interesting discovery recently when I got my hands on a tome called “Top Muscle: The Rarest Cars from America’s Fastest Decade.” The team at Motorbooks had sent it to me for review and—unsurprisingly—I was expecting to learn a thing or two about rare muscle-cars when it arrived. Now, that did happen, but before I even opened it, I was first struck by the uncanny glow of the Daytona Yellow 1969 Douglass-Yenko Super Camaro on the front. The car had a nearly three-dimensional presence that brought its streamlined shape to life in a way you rarely see on the…
  • NY Auto Show: 2015 Jeep Renegade

    Chris Haak
    16 Apr 2014 | 12:06 pm
    Mercedes-Benz (CLA), Lincoln (MKC) and Audi (A3) aren’t the only automakers searching for additional sales volume by moving downmarket to smaller vehicles that are intended to hopefully maintain the brand’s character at a lower price point. The idea is to then keep those buyers as they move to larger, more-profitable models. The latest brand to take a play from this book is Jeep, with the all-new 2015 Jeep Renegade. The Renegade looks like no other vehicle, and like no other Jeep, yet it still is clearly a Jeep. Forget what you may read about a Fiat-based front wheel drive…

    It wouldn’t be a proper auto show without a new limited-edition Mustang making its debut. With an all-new Mustang about to hit the streets, Ford is eager to begin making special editions with its new blank canvas. On the occasion of the iconic car’s 50th anniversary this week, New York was the perfect place to reveal the 2015 Ford Mustang 50th Anniversary Limited Edition. It remains to be seen whether there will eventually be a GT500, Super Snake, KR, Bullitt, Mach 1, Boss 302, or even Warriors in Pink Breast Cancer Awareness model, but we’ll start with the 50th anniversary…
  • NY Auto Show: 2015 Toyota Camry

    Chris Haak
    16 Apr 2014 | 7:33 am
    Having a track record of success can lead to complacency. Success is not easy and is not typically sustainable without considerable effort. In Toyota’s case, having the Camry as the best-selling car (note: full-size trucks kill it in sales) for the past dozen years allowed it to take its eye off the ball for the past few. The new-for-2012 Camry attempted to add a nicer interior, more style, and better performance, but competitors are constantly upping their game, and the 2012 Camry was not setting the class benchmark. It remains to be seen whether the new 2015 Camry does until we have…

    9 Oct 2014 | 5:35 am
    Things are rolling along, but this first Honda Civic HX build is taking me way longer than I expected. Needless to say, I’m immensely grateful to be able to chase this story. Valvoline sent a crew to shoot a day-in-the-life with me a few weeks back. They did an awesome job of capturing what drives me every day. We took a nice long ride in Slambo, heading out from Rancho Indebto all the way down through the Pinelands to Tuckerton, one of the towns on the Jersey Shore that was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy. Progress Update: The first phase of work on Slambo continues. In the coming weeks,…

    Do you keep track of much you spend on gasoline every month? What would you do with a spare twenty, fifty, or hundred dollars? Making some small changes can save a nice chunk of cash over time. The biggest change, of course, is switching from a gas sucking pig into something that’s more fuel efficient. But if you need to have a big truck or SUV, you need to have it. No arguments here. Everyone in America should have the choice of what they drive.

  • 2015 Ford F-150: 30 MPG Magic?

    mpg-o-editor
    7 Jun 2014 | 7:43 am
    The thought of a half-ton pickup truck achieving 30 miles per gallon (MPG) with a gasoline engine was unfathomable, just a few years ago. A 30 MPG rating for the 2015 Ford F-150 would be nothing short of remarkable. While the F-150′s gas mileage ratings have not been released for 2015, engineering leaps at Ford may have put that magic thirty within reach. The savings potential is based on three core technologies: lightweighting, displacement downsizing, and aerodynamics. The Ford F-150 has been the best-selling vehicle in America for years on end. A significant drop in the F150’s fuel…

    Last spring, I ran a Kickstarter campaign to get a new video series off the ground. Ain’t Fuelin’ is a show unlike any other. At its core, it asks a simple question: is it possible to increase the fuel efficiency of an older vehicle and to what degree? But it wraps that question in a bigger idea, specifically: can you bring new life to old paint by infusing high tech on a low budget? Ain’t Fuelin’ draws inspiration from a host of big time shows that paved the way, from Overhaulin’ and Mythbusters to Pimp My Ride and Top Gear. It’s been a long time coming…

Restomodders update yesterday’s hot rides using the coolest technology from today, without performing major sheet metal changes … vehicle bodies look close to period stock, with faded paint on the skin hiding state-of-the-art mechanicals.

    9 Oct 2014 | 10:30 pm
    Nissan might have gotten off on the wrong foot earlier this year, when they introduced the 2015 Nissan Versa Note SR, a brand new trim level, as the “sporty” model in the lineup. After all, it’s hard to be the “sporty” version when you don’t have any performance upgrades. Instead, they should have marketed the Versa Note SR as the “better” version of the Versa Note family. What this car does get over its brothers and sisters is a more refined and attractive look, a much improved interior and wider tires at a low price. Now that’s a…
  • Kia GT Fastback Slated for Production

    According to Edmunds, Kia has greenlit the GT Concept for production. The Kia GT was originally unveiled at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 2011, and soon we will see a production version of the swooping sedan. This wouldn’t be Kia’s first foray into the world of luxury sedans, but it is certainly a bold move. The flagship Kia K900 sedan has been a tough sell for buyers, who are yet to drop their preexisting notions of the Korean brand.

    Because it's smaller and less expensive than its big-brother Quattroporte luxury sedan and more practical and MUCH less expensive than its GranTurismo coupe and convertible cousins, this 2015 Maserati Ghibli (starting from $66,900) is the storied Italian automaker's most important new model in many years. Its iconic Maserati grille and triple front-fender air vents, its sculpted curves and creases, its fluid coupe-like roofline, its classic trident logos and its sinewy athletic stance add up to a unique blend of Italian sportiness and elegance. Precious few four-doors come even close.

During the season finale at the Hockenheim on October 19, the brand will demonstrate the latest progression of their automated – they prefer the term, “piloted” – technology, rolling out a driverless Audi RS 7 for a lap of the track that they say could reach 149.1 mph.

    Does your Porsche have an "overtake" button? How about a button for the automated "drink system". I'm guessing it doesn't. However, those are just 2 of the 24 buttons on the Porsche 919 Steering Wheel. Combine those with 6 paddles, 5 rotary dials and a honking big screen in the middle of it and you get one mighty complex steering wheel.

    By Eric Peters, Automotive Columnist Who can afford to spend $30,000 — the average purchase price paid as of 2013 — on a new car? The answer is … very few. Most new car “buyers” are in fact debtors. They sign loan documents and make monthly payments. Typically, for five years, the length of the average new car loan. Some extend this to six years — and seven years is not unheard of. Some of you may remember when the typical new car loan was three years. What’s happened? Several things.

And reinforcing that glowing feeling was the fact that the NX is probably going to be priced well under $40,000.

    20 Oct 2014 | 9:12 am
    When you're looking for a new car, there are lots of factors to consider: how the car looks, how comfortable the ride is, its high-tech amenities, the number of cup-holders.

  • Chicago Tweaks Red-Light Camera Rules, Issues $7.7 Million In New Fines

    20 Oct 2014 | 8:11 am
    No one likes red-light cameras. It's not just that they're automated, soulless hall monitors. It's not just that they're operated by semi-sleazy third parties that keep a big chunk of ticket revenue. It's also the fact that they seem like desperate ploys for cash. How much cash? In Chicago, Illinois, the answer is: a lot. And thanks to a recent...

    20 Oct 2014 | 7:19 am
    True to its name, the Hyundai Equus is the war horse at the top of Hyundai's lineup—a powerful, plush flagship that pushes the boundaries for the brand ever upward, into a segment of the market in which others (like VW, with its ill-fated Phaeton) have failed to pass muster. The Equus is a large luxury car, and the South Korean automaker's...

    20 Oct 2014 | 7:03 am
    Straddling the price-conscious end of the luxury class and the mainstream car market, the Hyundai Azera is a large four-door sedan that's sold in its home market of South Korea as the Grandeur. The Azera is related to the Hyundai Sonata in the way Toyota's Avalon is like its Camry: it's essentially a longer, more plush-and-stylish alternative that...

  • Video proof that LaFerrari has a pure electric mode

    20 Oct 2014 | 4:59 pm
    Filed under: Coupe, Hybrid, Performance, Videos, Ferrari, Racing Typically, a hybrid car, with its gas engine and an electric motor/battery pack is able to run on both forms of propulsion independently of each other. That means you can sip gas, run on pure electricity or some variation there of. The Ferrari LaFerrari is not like other hybrids. See, the successor to the Enzo has batteries, an electric motor and a great, thumping V12 engine, but unlike its rivals from McLaren and Porsche, it has no standalone electric mode. That's been Ferrari's party line since day one. But have the Italians…

The use of railways represents a huge part of that process, but according to a new report from Automotive News, automakers are getting rather upset with rail companies over delays in their shipping process. According to AN, the federal government's Surface Transportation Board, the overseer of the nation's railways, has ordered rail carriers to deliver weekly…

According to the UK’s Autocar, Hyundai Europe boss Allan Rushforth, who will soon leave for a role with Nissan, has confirmed that the Korean carmaker is keen for such a model but it remains undecided.

    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life Although a great many “experts” advise against going into business with one’s siblings, there have been many occasions of brothers and sisters collaborating where the venture didn’t end in financial ruin and prolonged awkward silence at family gatherings. One such example is Dodge, which was founded in 1914 as Dodge Brothers Company after its two principals – John and Horace Dodge – grew tired of making parts and subassemblies and selling them Henry Ford. In the century since then, the company has built many legendary cars and trucks…so many,…

    Sub5zero - Celebrating the Fast Life It’s widely known that Porsche offers a whole bunch of options for its new vehicles (and it’s even more widely known that those options cost serious dough). But for some people, Porsche’s options lists don’t go far enough with regard to personalization or exclusivity. A Polish company calling itself Carlex Design has addressed this problem (if you can call it that) with a very custom 911 called – for what should be obvious reasons – Blue Electric. Yeah, it’s got a body kit that gives it a pseudo-Turbo appearance, but the real story is…

Yes, it was an engine supplier in the early days of the Indy Racing League, but it managed to win just three races over the course of six seasons (Oldsmobile – whose engine was rebadged as a Chevrolet in 2002 after it was announced Olds was being canned – snapped up the rest during that period.).

Hamann was able to score one early on, and the company is now starting to reveal the sorts of wares it will have available for the new twin-turbo hotness. The first collection of parts is the striking body kit you see here. And while the front fascia, rear fascia, side skirts and hood look the business, that angular rear wing seems a bit mismatched with the body’s flowing curves. In any case, Hamann’s body kit (plus the lower ride height and…

One is Honda's latest — and smallest — SUV, the HR-V; the first exterior images of the tiny crossover appeared last April.

But I’m not, because I love wheels so much they have to be just right. When it comes to my own cars I make decisions either very quickly or over an absurd length of time.

It’s about squeezing fractions of seconds off lap times and employing every trick in the book in order to do so. In a world where lap times rule all, there usually isn’t a whole lot of room for personal style. That’s not to say there aren’t great looking time attack machines – because there are – but if a modification doesn’t serve to make the car go around the track faster, there really is no use for it in this discipline.

  • Camouflaging 2016 Chevrolet Volt

    30 Sep 2014 | 9:42 am
    The styling of the next-generation Chevrolet Volt is one of the automotive world's best-kept secrets. Keeping customers and media eager to see the successor to the groundbreaking original at bay until the new Volt debuts at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January is tricky business.   First, it is engineers, not designers, who are charged with creating camouflage that balances styling secrecy with the need to validate the Volt and its systems in public.   "If it were up to me it would be a shoebox driving down the road," said Lionel Perkins, GM camouflage…

    While the Infiniti brand is increasingly known for performance, it doesn’t boast much of a racing heritage. The brand does sponsor the famed Red Bull Racing Formula One team, but outside of that it hasn’t been too active in the world of motorsports. That’s about to change however as the brand is set to become more active in international racing. Nissan’s luxury arm has just announced that it will enter the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship in 2015 with a pair of Infiniti Q50 sedans.

    The recently refreshed 2015 Honda CR-V has just been named Motor Trend’s SUV of the Year. While Honda’s venerable CR-V isn’t all-new for the upcoming model year, the crossover was able to snag the coveted title thanks a wide range of subtle but critical improvements that helped it beat 18 other all-new or redesigned SUVs. Among the biggest improvements was the addition of a continuously variable transmission that replaced the CR-V’s 5-speed transmission. This component helped contribute to better fuel economy than the previous model year. Additionally, Motor Trend editors noted…

    Showdowns between Porsche and Corvette always end in Porsche’s favor. The word “always” is a dangerous one to use, but in this case it fits. There hasn’t been a time that I can recall when a Chevy Corvette has beat out a Porsche 911 or even a Cayman. I suppose a Corvette vs. Cayenne showdown might end in Chevy’s favor, but that’s not a track competition anyone’s been too interested to complete. European handling and balance of power simply destroys the American Corvette’s horsepower advantage. Every time. Well, until now. Chevrolet has…

    There’s been quite a bit of debate as to where electric cars will fit into the consumer car market in the next few years. Tesla’s recent announcement of their P85D shows that electric cars are starting to infiltrate even the ranks of performance vehicles. Although there have been a number of additions to the EV category in recent years, a lot of people still question the practicality of transitioning to a purely electric vehicle. Battery charge times and driving range on a single charge certainly leave a lot to be desired. These are legitimate concerns, but automakers are making…

    Diesel-powered cars should be the wave of the future. Electric vehicles have the distinction of being able to run on zero fossil fuel, but the production of electricity itself requires all kinds of dirty energy. Yes, it’s pretty cool to drive without any pollution, but how many tons of coal have to burn for the privilege? That’s a discussion that won’t be resolved by a single blog post, but it’s the reason diesel-powered vehicles should be given a second look before buying electric. Unfortunately there’s still a shortage of diesel cars in this country, but…

    Do we need stop-start engine technology in this country? Those of us who continue to drive vehicles powered by fossil fuels need every piece of technology we can get to reduce the amount of fuel we need to fill our tanks. Stop-start technology works by automatically stopping the engine when a car comes to a complete stop, then starting it again when the brake pedal is released. The technology has been a success in Europe, where gas prices are exorbitant. As many as 70 percent of cars sold there are equipped with stop-start, compared with just seven percent here.

The subject of the postcards: France in the year 2000. The idea caught on and Russian and German prints were released in the years that followed. The result, a number of incredibly awesome new modes of transportation. The world would be so much cooler if this is how we got around.

    Although we’ve not got a patch on the Americans, we British do love our big cars.

The innovation in this particular market is extraordinary.

If this happens when you’re driving you can see the potential dangers that may occur.

    Forget hot-wiring. As new technology makes it harder to steal cars the old-fashioned way, today’s thieves are using more sophisticated “white-collar” methods to get their hands on a set of wheels, according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB).   The NICB and its law enforcement partners report a growing number of these cases which, in legal terms, constitute financial fraud. Therefore, these stolen vehicles are not counted as auto thefts -- which may partially account for the steady decline in auto theft crime statistics over the past two decades.

    From GMM Williams reserve driver Felipe Nasr linked with a race seat for 2015. Felipe Nasr admits he is "upset" to have missed out on this year's GP2 title to Jolyon Palmer.

    Frenchman Jean-Eric Vergne has spent the last three season driving for the Scuderia Toro Rosso Formula 1 team. Taking to Sky Sports F1, Vergne said he thinks he has a place in F1.

    From GMM Sebastian Vettel behaved impeccably in 2015, despite plotting his Red Bull exit and being outclassed by his teammate. That is the claim of Daniel Ricciardo, who having established himself as an undisputed F1 star with three wins this year is now set to become the 'number 1' at Red Bull as Vettel prepares to move to Ferrari. The Australian said that even as he rattled the reigning quadruple world champion's cage in 2014, Vettel dealt with the situation maturely.

    From nascar.com In a must-win situation at Talladega Superspeedway, Brad Keselowski did exactly that, preserving his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship hopes with a victory in Sunday's GEICO 500. With the right side of his car damaged in the wreck that brought out the first caution flag of the afternoon, Keselowski persevered, taking the lead during the first attempt at a green-white-checkered-flag finish and winning the race in the second overtime—after a wreck that ended the title run of Keselowski's former boss, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Keselowski won his series-leading sixth race of…

    When miMOTIVE – a Founder Institute startup – was kickstarted as an idea a few months ago there was still some debate as to the real value of automotive content. Should automotive professionals really act as content providers? Is automotive expert content a legitimate investment? And don’t even mention the topic of ROI. A few months later, the conversation has shifted from should we create and provide automotive content to how could we not?

    There is nothing elegant about this imposing Toyota. When Toyota introduced its 4Runner 30 years ago, it was on the leading edge of what became known as the SUV craze. Thirty years later, with the heyday of the SUV shrinking it is still as competitive and capable as it was three decades ago. The current Toyota 4Runner is no looker. But it more than compensates with its off-road capabilities. These trucks were created with a particular focus on heavy-duty off-road driving, where the 4Runner is right at home. Like its name implies, 4Runner is still a multi-use vehicle that is designed for more…

    17 Oct 2014 | 10:18 am
    2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost While the headline to this piece is a bit sensationalist, it is worth pointing out that the way Ford is representing the engine noise of the new 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost is disingenuous. If you have yet to hear about this new Mustang model, it features a 2.3-liter Ecoboost engine, which brings the Mustang back to the world of turbo. But despite that sounding like a downgrade, the Ecoboost boasts an impressive 310 hp and a 0-60 time of 5.6 seconds. It also gets 32 miles to the gallon on the highway, which is the best of any pony car this generation. So while…

But for some, they want to share that experience and bring someone along. That desire to share the fun is certainly not new, as the sidecar was invented around the turn of the 20th Century, according to Rider magazine.

    If you’re like many Americans, you’re probably not personally involved in all of your household’s money management. Statistics from Pew Research show that one partner is typically more involved in managing the household’s finances than the other. While splitting responsibilities can make sense, both partners should be involved in important financial decisions, says The New York Times. In the event of an emergency, you may be required to assume full responsibility for household finances, which means it’s important for you and your partner to stay on top of the family’s money…

    The daily expenses of life can make it difficult to put aside extra money, but that doesn’t change the fact that bad luck can happen to anyone. And if you don’t have an emergency fund built up, bad luck could force you to dip into your savings for your retirement or your children’s education.

    We are proud to announce the winner of the October 2014 Automotive Addicts Cars and Coffee photo contest… Many congratulations to Ryan Brantley for posting this fantastic group shot. The detail of the individual cars in the lot and the trucks driving along the bridge in the background really come together to tell a story. The coloring tweaks that Ryan made to make the St. John’s River look like it’s worth swimming in deserve a decal all by themselves. Great work Ryan and thanks to all the photographers who posted, it was a tough call!

    RevoZport has released an upgrade program for the Volkswagen Golf GTI and the meaner R. First up, the Golf VII GTI has received a more aggressive body featuring carbon fiber front spoiler lip, side skirts and rear lip along with a roof-mounted wing and a vented hood also made from carbon fiber. It now benefits from a titanium exhaust system which is 50 percent lighter than the stock stainless steel exhaust together, along with a stage two induction and remapped ECU which has bumped output of the four-cylinder 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine from 230 HP (169 kW) to more than 290 HP (213…

    With the increase in racing seats, bolt-in roll cages and other race-inspired modifications within the Volkswagen scene, we’ve seen our fair share of deleted rear seats and false floor kits. We can certainly appreciate those who have gone the DIY route, but after seeing the kits available from Euro Kreations, we have to wonder why you’d want to. Starting at $279 and available for the third, fourth, fifth and sixth generation Golf and GTI (as well as the first generation Audi TT), the Euro Kreations kits are an extremely clean way to fill the void left after a rear seat removal. Each kit…

Speaking from personal experience, they can come from a diverse range of influences.. Anything from the desire to tick off some kind of bucket list, through to scene acceptance, or indeed, good commercial sense.

    The vehicle registration document doesn’t lie! It certifies that the Volkswagen T5 Multivan Comfortline with the 2.0 litre four cylinder TSi engine packs a 204 hp (150 kW) punch. In this case it also certifies that this version distributes the power to all four wheels (4-motion) and can be driven in the optimal speed range via a 7-speed double clutch gearbox. And in particular it certifies that the T5 Multivan is a combi saloon. Now, 204 hp is not necessarily an obstacle for the performance-savvy MTM technicians. On the contrary, Roland Mayer especially welcomes Volkswagens and Audis, which…

I’ve owned both a B7 A4 and S4 over the past 6 years and been intensely active in Audi message boards and social media during this time, hearing common complaints and issues which I’m summarizing here.

    This latest featured ride comes to us from Norway and is modded to the max! The owner Steffen bought the car with some mods already done to it, but as many enthusiasts know there is always more to be done. Steffen started with the interior, scouting some beautiful RS4 bucket seats off ebay.de from a totaled RS4. Steffen tells me they’re probably his favorite modification to the car, which is saying something. To complete the interior, he found a custom TTRS steering wheel with carbon fiber accents which is incredibly beautiful. Next came the powertrain and handling – the previous…

The other main differences between the TE37s and LE37s are the center caps, decals, and finish – but they’re more or less the same wheels otherwise. The wheels have been discontinued so there isn’t a lot of information about them out there, but what I do know about the wheels is this – they’re 19×8.5 with an offset of ET35, they are…

That represents the highest sales figures of within one year since launch in S-Class history, which would make this current model the most successful launch of an S-Class.Surely, it also helps that this S-Class was also the fastest to actually get to the market.

    The third-generation Ford Focus RS has moved into the next development stage, with CarAdvice’s spy photographers spotting the new high-performance hatchback testing at Germany’s Nurburgring. The fresh images – which come about four months after our spies snapped an early prototype of the new RS on public roads in Michigan – give us our best look yet at the blue oval’s upcoming flagship hot-hatch that’s set to launch in 2016. Stripped-back camouflage reveals more of the RS’s new face, which features an aggressive version of the brand’s trapezoidal grille and gaping lower…

    The third-generation 2015 Skoda Fabia is headed to Australia around the middle of next year with the promise of greater practicality, performance and — perhaps most importantly — fun factor.  The smallest car in Skoda‘s Australian arsenal is also the Czech car-maker’s second top-seller worldwide after the Octavia, so it’s a vital car for a brand on a growth path globally. In Australia, it will enter a light-car segment that has dropped appreciably this year, but that is projected to bounce back with the arrival of new-generation stalwarts such as the new Mazda 2 by…

    The Mazda 3 is the most popular privately purchased car in Australia and to the Japanese brand’s forecast around 40 per cent of those buyers will choose the entry-level $20,490 Neo grade.   Apparently only 10 per cent of buyers will make the jump to the $22,990 Mazda 3 Maxx grade, but we implore them to for the step up in connectivity alone. Add a $2K optional six-speed automatic transmission and a no-cost-option hatchback bodystyle (over the sedan) and this is the specification for our three-month stint with everyone’s favourite small hatchback.   Poring over the specification…

    16 Oct 2014 | 4:16 am
    You could spend an awful lot of time and money ‘upgrading’ your new MINI 3-door Hatch. I had a play with the online configurator and it wasn’t long before my £16,450 Cooper D was the wrong side of £25,000. Don’t get me wrong, the end result was a seriously well-equipped car, but to spend that amount of cash on a new MINI would be bunkum. The good news is, you don’t need to. On a wet and windy day in the Cotswolds, I had a play in the all-new MINI One with MINI’s new 3-cylinder, 1.2-litre petrol engine and I’m delighted to report it’s nothing short of brilliant.

Under the planned new Style and Decency section of the annual MOT test, 3-spoke alloy wheels could be driven off the road, with any car wearing them receiving an instant failure notice.

    A local radio station came under fire today amid claims it had deliberately misled its listeners, encouraging them to enter a competition under false pretences. Letchworth-based Garden FM, the self-proclaimed home of “Inane chat and hopeless drivel”, used a premium rate phone line to support a competition to supposedly win a brand-new Volvo XC90. But to the horror of the listeners, who were also expecting an all-expenses skiing trip in The Alps, the actual prize was something much less exciting. In fact, the real prize was quite terrifying. Rather than the all-new Volvo XC90…

So far, Vauxhall has only released a single teaser image and a few lines of marketing guff, so this is proper, hot-off-the-press stuff. Only it came via fax. Speaking to a chap known only to us as ‘Phil’, who curiously was wearing a faded-blue Ford Rallye Sport bomber jacket, the all-new Vauxhall Viva will share much in common with the original car, first introduced in 1963. This must be true, because a Vauxhall press release said so: “Designed for…

You can idolize Mäkinen, Grönholm, Sainz, and Loeb, and follow Ogier, Latvala, Hirvonen, et al., in the current point standings. Unless you’ve ever actually volunteered at a rally, you don’t know the half of it.  Don’t get me wrong. Rally is epic; the pinnacle of motorsport. I don’t care what they say about F1.

Phoenix, Arizona. I’m excited to have them as new neighbors, even if they will be living an hour away from me on the far side of the valley and I might seldom see them. Twice, now, they’ve stopped by on their way across the country in a rough-around-the-edges, 25+ year old Mitsubishi they bought thousands of miles away on the west coast.

It was Alonso’s first ever pole in a red car, and Ferrari’s first qualifying triumph in 30 races. The result is also Button’s first front row of the season, as Lewis Hamilton in the sister McLaren was left ruing a setup “mistake”.

The styling lasted well, and it’s rather a modern classic now. In 2007 an all-new XK was unveiled, and this time they were even faster and more powerful than before, and a change of ownership also meant no more raiding the parts bin hence meaning a more refined and classier cabin too. From there on it went from a great car to a superb one.

    This particular Ford model is the alternative to the 1.5 Ecosport 1.5 litre diesel. Some experts were not particularly fond of the diesel version, so is the petrol version any better? The car was inspired by the idea of the ‘Ford One’, a strategy to make all models adaptable for all worldwide car markets. Initially, the car was sold in Brazil, starting from 2003. It was very suited to the country, given the conditions of roads. The added height to the ride made driving in the country a lot easier.

  • Vehicle Tax: your complete guide to the new changes

    Editor
    17 Oct 2014 | 7:03 am
    As of October 1st, the good old fashioned car tax disc – first introduced way back in 1921 – has been officially retired.  It is no longer a legal requirement to have the disc displayed.  Today, we’re going to go through the changes and take a look at the changes you'll need to make. So, what’s happening to the disc? Car tax discs are no longer to be issued, and it is no longer a legal obligation to display one in your front window.  This will be the case with both vehicles that have been exempt from the charge and those that have not (previously, even…
  • Diesel or petrol: making the choice

    Editor
    1 Oct 2014 | 5:53 am
    One of the first decisions that you have to make when picking up your first car is whether you want to go with a petrol vehicle or a diesel one.  Today, we’re going to take a look at the differences between the two, and which one is likely to suit you best. The price difference In the UK, diesel can be more expensive than petrol, with fuel pricing favouring the latter.  As well as this, the advances in petrol engine technology has led to increased levels of efficiency, bringing it closer to diesel.  As a result, the diesel premium – typically between £1000 and…
  • A guide to buying a salvage car

    Editor
    25 Sep 2014 | 3:38 am
    At ASM, we work to provide modern motorists to help them manage their driving finances.  Car salvage auctions are one of the main services that we offer, and we’re going to use today to take a look at how any driver can benefit from them. So, what is a salvaged car?

    Every year in Britain, around two million cars are scrapped. There are many things you can do with an old car, of course, but the simple fact is that scrapping is still often the most fiscally sensible thing to do with your vehicle.

    Employers and the government should be doing more to ensure that work-related road safety prioritised alongside traditional health and safety, a new report has argued. The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) spoke to both the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) and the Centre for Transport Studies at University College London (UCL) to evaluate the current management of occupational road risk in the UK. The report assesses the progress made in recent years by employers looking to manage the risks that their staff face whilst driving for work. It makes various recommendations,…

Any cost associated problems while you were driving would be passed along to Mum or Dad along followed by the lament: when is this going to be fixed?

    The best thing about moving. The thing about things that you need is that you use them. You obviously don’t need them if you don’t use them. That seems like a logical correlation, doesn’t it? When you move, you should make a few piles of things. The “I need this! ” pile, the “I want this” pile, and finally, the “Do I really need or want this? ” pile. Take everything from that last pile and give it away. Have got a yard sale with the stuff of value, and everything else goes right to the Goodwill store. Don’t ponder over it, just do it, and I promise you you’ll feel an…

    Low emission zones mean trouble for diesel car drivers Remember when everyone was being encouraged to buy a diesel car? Diesel was hailed as being the saviour of the environment. You got better miles per gallon. It was cheaper to run. Heck, it was better than sliced bread. (One thing no one mentioned though was diesels tend to be more expensive to service and repair than the same petrol model). But boy have things changed. And it’s taken less than 15 years for the U-turn. Let me tell you now. If you own a diesel sell it now before everyone realises what’s about to happen. And…

    Diesel prices have been finally deregulated in India. A major price cut of Rs. 3.37/- has been witnessed in Delhi and citizens can heave a sigh of relief. Diesel has seen a price cut for the first time in the last five years When petrol prices started rising drastically and diesel was still cheap, we saw people jumping over to buy diesel cars. While some of them had a real high daily usage, others bought diesel cars just for the day-to-day cost benefit and conveniently forgetting the much higher premium that diesel cars asked for.

    It’s a situation that burns people with a sense of right and fair play: seeing seemingly non disabled drivers parking in clearly marked Disabled Parking spots. Invariably, there’s no indication of a sticker inside the car, a requirement in order to use these spots. Unsurprisingly, when these drivers are talked to by security personnel, there’s an unleashing of swearing and attitude that would shame an old salt. Yet, like so many things we see on the roads nowadays, there’s no need for this, there’s no need for this attitude. and the NSW state government appears…

    Volvo’s best seller is its mid size SUV contender, the XC60 D4, a nomenclature that says, simply, it’s a four cylinder diesel. Having never driven a Volvo before and having only one driving experience, that with Robert Dahlgren and the S60 Polestar as part of the 2014 Top Gear Festival Sydney, it’s with an open mind that the XC60 is approached. The Donk. The XC60 tested has a frugal, 2.0L, four cylinder diesel, with peak power being 133kW, at a high (for a diesel) 4250 rpm. There’s significant twisting force on offer, with 400 torques between 1750 to 2500 revs.

However, the preceding near eight hours had seen scenes unprecedented in the history of V8 Supercars. In fact, the days leading up to The Great Race witnessed just how cruel “The Mountain” can be to drivers, both veterans and inexperienced. On most days of the year,…

This only shows how important a car stereo is to drivers. But with all the mean stereos out there, choosing the one that will satisfy your needs might be challenging. Take out the guesswork by doing the following: Make sure it has the audio source that you want Do you prefer to listen to the radio more, or enjoy your collection of CDs instead?

    James Bond movies will never be complete without beautiful women, impressive weaponry and astounding cars. Of course, being a spy and all, he needs to drive a vehicle that’s amazing enough to attract women, and fast enough to escape the bad guys. Aston Martin DB5 There’s no doubt in anyone’s mind why this car made it to James Bond movies. With its sleek appearance and powerful engine, the DB5 definitely deserves a starring role, along with James Bond himself. Using the car for the movie, however, wasn’t always easy peasy and required a lot of arm twisting. But after all the fuss, the…

Ford agreed to send Shelby American its popular new muscle car, the Mustang, and in turn Shelby would transform it into a thoroughbred racer – the vaunted GT350.And then in 1966, a third party came to Ford with prospects for a new type of partnership – to rent out Shelby GT350s and put performance in the hands of the masses.

    20 Oct 2014 | 8:00 am
    To answer that question bluntly— no. Today’s automakers are smart, as a result, no company is looking to mass produce a car that won’t give them any sort of sales boost. This rear-wheel drive Chrysler 200 coupe concept might be the perfect example of that.Although tempting, don’t expect Chrysler to rework its front-drive 200 chassis anytime soon…much less cut two doors out of it. But at least if Chrysler did, we can now say that it would be quite a looker.PHOTOS: Take a closer look at the all-new 2015 Chrysler 200Render artist Theophilus Chin plied his craft over the weekend and…

    Available solely with 4-cylinder engines measuring in at 2.0L and 2.4L, the Compass is the smallest of the Jeeps, and a twin to the much-boxier Jeep Patriot. Its bones were shared with the Dodge Caliber before that was killed off in favor of the new Dodge Dart. One of two compact SUVs from Jeep, the Compass was originally derided as too soft for the Jeep brand, both in styling and philosophy, since it’s a car-based design built on a front-wheel-drive platform. With boxier, more traditional Jeep styling, the related Patriot was more popular until the Compass was restyled in 2011 to…

It does this at a much faster rate and with better control than a driver could manage. ABS generally offers improved vehicle control…

    7 Oct 2014 | 11:33 am
    What is Local SEO Local search engine optimization is the process of optimizing your website, listings, profiles and directories so that you can gain higher search rankings for geo-targeted or local based searches. As Google continues to gain a better understanding of semantic or language-based search, long tail queries and user search intent, and physical location based on mobile devices, they are going to show local results for more non-location specific search terms. This means searching a phrase like “Honda Accord” will return dealership pages mixed in with the informational organic…

  • New entry-level Toyota GT86 announced

    19 Oct 2014 | 2:57 pm
    Given the Subaru BRZ’s recent price reductions and range revamp, Toyota’s decision to do something similar for its virtually identical GT86 comes as no surprise. The BRZ is currently available from £22,495, so to match that figure the 2015 GT86 line-up gains an entry-level Primo trim grade which carries a £500 discount for a limited period. Its standard equipment includes Bluetooth, a Toyota Touch multimedia system, tyre pressure monitoring, 17” alloy wheels and faux carbon fibre dashboard trim. In fact, compared to a regular GT86, the Primo only misses out on non-essentials such as…

    19 Oct 2014 | 6:41 am
    A couple of new variants are joining Peugeot’s 308 line-up. The first, called GT Line, replaces the Feline trim grade. Its look is meant to imitate that of the recently-unveiled GT performance version (pictured below), so 18” ‘Diamant’ wheels, a rear diffuser and twin exhausts adorn the exterior. The cabin meanwhile gains front sports seats with a massage function, plus part-Alcantara upholstery. Whereas the ‘proper’ GT is available with 202 bhp (151 kW / 205 PS) petrol or 177 bhp (133 kW / 180 PS) diesel engines, Peugeot is offering the GT Line with a selection of three less…

  • Yamaha YZF-R3 revealed

    17 Oct 2014 | 11:30 am
    Yamaha’s new YZF-R3 small-capacity sports bike is set to be a direct competitor for the Kawasaki Ninja 300. Power comes from a liquid-cooled, twin-cylinder 321 cc fuel-injected engine that produces 41.4 bhp (30.9 kW / 42.0 PS) with 29.6 Nm (21.8 lb/ft) of peak torque. In what is surely a deliberate marketing ploy, those figures just beat the Kawasaki’s 38.8 bhp (29.0 kW / 39.4 PS) and 27.0 Nm (19.9 lb/ft). The YZF-R3 is built around a tubular steel frame which is encased in a full fairing. Wet weight with all fluids on board is only 169 kg (373 lbs), making it 5 kg (11 lbs) lighter than…

It does this at a much faster rate and with better control than a driver could manage. ABS generally offers improved vehicle control…

It had been passed over by many people who had thought nothing of it, but none of them had a vintage motorcycle they were having trouble disassembling. The problem i was facing was that the metal used in the manufacture of my engine is very low quality, making it apt to crack if forced. The wooden wedge looked soft enough to aid me. I took the piece home, and in less than 10 minutes I had removed the cover, then found the wedge handy in holding the crank from…

Dig the spurs in, pilgrim, and she'll bolt to 60 mph in a scant 3.6 seconds. Keep your foot down, and the pressurized Coyote 5.0-liter 4-cammer will blaze to a white-hot 11.2-second quarter mile at 131 mph. It's ponycar meets supercar.

TROG is a perfect example of a small low-key event that's kept true to their roots. Even with all of the exposure and hype surrounding this year, Mel and the Oilers CC/MC did a great job keeping the race feeling as low-key and laid back as the first. This year the guys really worked hard to turn this event into a full fledged weekend event, with things to do all weekend. I decided to stay the entire weekend and see and do as much as I could.

    For many years, we’ve heard rumors that it’s smartest to wait until the end of the year to purchase a vehicle. This makes sense, as dealerships are full of next year’s models by this point. However, new data from TrueCar suggests that the better deals may actually come in August when dealerships are relatively quiet. The TrueCar report showed that the average transaction price in August was $1,850 lower than the average in December. Actually, the July rates fall just behind August. This is likely because the shift in model year used to come in early fall months like…

    The tire industry uses up two-thirds of the world’s rubber supply, and it depends on very few countries in Southeast Asia to grow the rubber tree for raw materials. A Dutch biologist believes she and her team may have found a sustainable alternative to rubber — dandelion. Dandelion-based rubber would give the tire industry a better handle on rubber supplies.

    Pennsylvania law states that any DUI re-offenders must serve two months in jail for the second offense and an additional year for every following offense, in addition to having his or her license suspended. However, this law hasn’t prevented a former CNN courts commentator from being arrested for drunk driving five times within a year, and never serving more than 10 days in jail. According to an article on Philly.com, Joseph Lawless was able to find a loophole in the law that allowed him to plead guilty as a first time offender for each case of DUI.

  • Troubleshooting the A/C Expansion Valve

    2 Oct 2014 | 12:19 pm
    The change of state of liquid refrigerant to gaseous state is achieved by passing it through a restricted opening. This change in state causes drop in temperature of the refrigerant. When this cooled refrigerant passes through the coils of the blower, the heat of the passenger compartment is absorbed by the refrigerant which again turns to liquid. The air conditioning system of the car relies on this change of state and it is achieved by using an expansion valve. The expansion valve is a metering device that controls the amount of refrigerant flowing to the evaporator / cooling coils and also…

I think back to last year when my 13 year old son insisted on wearing a black Morph suit for Halloween. I begrudgingly agreed and bought him a Morph suit to wear, but insisted that he decorate it with glow sticks.  In retrospect, I am not sure that the addition of glow sticks was actually enough especially after reading the above statistic (see photo – I am sure you will agree).  He refused…

    I’ve always liked the idea of a modern-day Taurus SHO, but the fact that the current one is a two-ton machine doesn’t help invoke memories of classic SHOs. Put that Ecoboost V6 in something that’s about 500 pounds lighter and something interesting might happen. It’s unlikely the Taurus will get much smaller externally than the current car, which is almost 17-feet long. While it boasts an enormous trunk, it’s not as spacious inside as the new Chevy Impala, for example, so let’s hope for a roomier interior. Expect more Ecoboost fours, like the 2.3-liter…

    Ford has skimmed just over $5,000 off the price of the Focus Electric with immediate effect. The zero-emissions family hatch now starts at $29,995, a price better befitting its modest performance.

  • Real-world range: Porsche 918 Spyder vs. Manhattan Island

    20 Oct 2014 | 2:31 am
    Drive’s short feature involving a Porsche 918 Spyder in New York should leave you in no doubt as to just how jaw-droppingly beautiful a supercar can be. Aesthetics are secondary for Mike Spinelli, though, as he attempts to drive the 887 hp plug-in hybrid from the northern tip of Manhattan Island to its southernmost point. That’s hardly a tough undertaking with a mid-mounted five-liter V8 engine (which, incidentally, Spinelli manages to provoke into life), but the 13-or-so-mile journey is roughly as far as Porsche says the 918 can go in electric mode, solely using charge from its 6.8 kWh…

On one hand there’s the i8 supercar (review), complete with aerodynamically ‘layered’ bodywork, road-hugging proportions, and a wolfish, LED-enhanced grin. The only criticism most people can aim at the plug-in hybrid’s design is that from certain angles it appears to be birthing the latest Porsche 911. The smaller, taller, dumpy by comparison i3 (review) is another matter. The design is daring, capturing a new aesthetic for BMW while attempting to…
  • Taxi or supercar? The BMW i8’s devious exhaust engineering

    20 Oct 2014 | 1:39 am
    When a BMW insider put pre-production footage of the i8 supercar in the public domain months before launch, we marvelled at the plug-in hybrid’s engine note. How is it, we wondered, that a heavily turbocharged engine with just three cylinders and displacement of merely 1.5 liters could sound so rich and aggressive? The answer is that it can’t. It’s been known for some time that BMW employs no small amount of acoustic treachery to enhance the driving experience of the 357 hp i8, which includes pumping synthesised engine sounds through the speakers. The German carmaker hired Harman to…

A 560 hp RS7 equipped with 3D cameras and complex GPS technology took a fine line around the 2.8-mile circuit, sweeping through bends and nailing braking zones unerringly. A lap time of ‘slightly over two minutes’ puts in on par with a human-controlled Jaguar XFR. Audi says its RS7 prototype is accurate to the centimeter, a trait that’s handy on a racetrack but crucial on public roads. The luxury carmaker was recently first in line to receive California’s…

    As humans, our minds are dictated by some unknown force to affiliate, like, remember and appreciate things which carry superlative adjectives before their names or things they accomplish. No wonder then, stack two things side-by-side and the one which attracts more words like better, stronger, faster and bigger in its favour is bound to pull more love in its field of gravity. It is a similar case with the KTM RC 200 and the 390. While both are dressed in similar space suits, the former isn’t much talked about or showered with attention as much as the latter. To give you an analogy, let’s…

    Yamaha has been in news for its new YZF-R3 entry level sportsbike. But a small mistake on the website led to the addition of Yamaha’s upcoming 2015 FJ-09 image in the FZ-09 photo gallery. Although Yamaha has rectified the error, a member of ADVRider website managed to download the photograph before it was taken off. The FJ-09 is based on Yamaha’s naked MT-09 motorcycle platform. The FJ-09 is an adventure series motorcycle that will make its debut at the EICMA motor show in November. At the heart of the FJ-09 will most probably be the 847cc three-cylinder engine that is found on the MT-09.
