Don’t Get Too Attached To This Larger Allroad

2012 Audi A6 Allroad Quattro

As an American living in Italy, there are often entire month-long stretches where I drive nothing but European cars that will sadly never come out to play on American soil. Such is the case for the abundantly adored Audi A6 Allroad Quattro seen here. I was initially of the assumption that since the A4 Allroad had already been confirmed for the U.S. that the A6 Allroad would be coming as well, but I am dismayed to report otherwise.

Such a pity, too. The business case for giving North America the whole range of Audi models that Germany offers apparently just doesn’t pan out financially – and for some of us, it’s the old predictable story of unrequited love across the chilly Atlantic.

Team Ingolstadt brought me into their home in Neckarsulm just north of hilly Stuttgart for this drive through the area’s precisely cultivated fields of hops. The aroma of beer is everywhere here, which may go some way toward explaining just why the new A6 Allroad felt so good under and around me as we freight-trained along the Swabian two-lanes.

Subaru tweaks Legacy and Outback for 2013, kills off 2.5GT

2013 Subaru Outback debuts live in New York

The launch of the new XV Crosstrek may be the bigger news for Subaru here at the New York Auto Show, and the BRZ coupe may still be getting the lion’s share of the attention, but the Legacy and its high-riding counterpart, the Outback, have also debuted here in Manhattan with a series of updates.

Most noticeable (that term being a relative one) is the pair’s revised front fascia, but behind the new look is a fresh boxer four that replaces the old one in the 2.5i model, now producing three more horsepower and four more pound-feet of torque (173 hp/174 lb-ft.) while returning improved fuel economy. An updated CVT is the principal transmission for the 2.5-liter four, with a six-speed manual available, both driving all four wheels in typical Fuji Heavy Industries style. The available 3.6-liter flat six carries over with a five-speed automatic. Subaru says it has also revisited the suspensions on both models for improved ride comfort and performance.

There’s also a suite of new electronics packed into the revised Legacy and Outback, including everything from new active safety technology features like lane departure warning and collision mitigation to improved audio system connectivity.

Sadly, Subaru has axed the enthusiast-minded Legacy 2.5GT model for 2013.

Four Amish charged with illegal alcohol possession after crashing into police car

Monday, April 30th, 2012

Filed under: , ,

Horse and buggy road signResidents of Amish communities famously eschew almost all trappings of modernity. No TV, no telephones, limited use of electricity, and, gasp, no Autoblog! But there comes a time in a young Amish person’s life when they’re allowed to go out and taste the world. And sometimes alcohol.

Case in point: Sunday evening, police in Sherman, N.Y. were responding to reports of a group of young Amish having a “buggy party.” Before they could get there, though, another buggy carrying four Amish allegedly switched lanes abruptly and collided with the patrol car.

The buggy flipped, injuring one of the passengers and, we imagine, spilling what police say was the fruits of a beer run.

The crash must have been loud enough for the partygoers to hear, because when the cops finally showed up, several buggies were observed fleeing the scene.

The four passengers of the bashed-up buggy are charged with underage possession of alcohol. The driver, 20, faces additional charges since police say he admitted to being the host of the party.

And, by the way, the horse is fine. Police say it, wisely, fled the scene and took shelter in a nearby barn.

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles opens Oldtimer division for the classic Bus

Monday, April 30th, 2012

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Oldtimers

Arguably more than any other mainstream automaker, Volkswagen is serious about its heritage. So much so that it appointed Franz-Josef Paefgen – former chief executive of Audi, Bentley and Bugatti – to head up its classics program. In this capacity, Paefgen oversees the heritage departments of each of the group’s brands, but while its commercial vehicles operation may seem the least likely to preserve its past, today’s announcement proves that assumption wrong.

The Oldtimers department of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles just recently moved into a new 7,000 square-meter facility in Hannover, Germany, where its staff of 13 dedicates itself to the restoration and preservation of old VW Buses. Although the garage has been active for several years, working on the company’s own vehicles, the Oldtimer department has now opened its doors for private owners to bring in their vehicles for any degree of service.

Have an old Bus in need of some TLC? Click through the jump for the press release for further details and check out the gallery of high-resolution images for a closer look inside the workshop.

2012 Vauxhall Corsa

Sunday, April 29th, 2012

Known as the Opel brand in other parts of the world, the Vauxhall name has been part of the UK automotive industry for years. The brand is known for producing otherwise average vehicles for the UK market. But since the onset of automotive globalization the company has started to produce well-built vehicles, and one of those is the all-new for 2012 Vauxhall Corsa which is sold as a 3-door or 5-door hatchback in UK as of the moment. For new car buyers, here are some new features of the 2012 Vauxhall Corsa which you might strongly consider for your next vehicle purchase.

For starters, there’s an all new range of Vauxhall ECOTEC® engines to choose from beginning with the petrol engines. The 2012 Corsa models are now powered by three new Euro 5-compliant ECOTEC petrol engines – the lightweight 1.0 litre 12v engine that delivers 65PS; and the 1.2 and 1.4 litre units which feature 16 valves and variable valve timing (VVT) technology allowing both to produce 85PS and 100PS respectively. Both engine technology specs also provide most of the maximum torque across a wide rev band making for easy overtaking or cruising on the highway.

Next up are the Corsa’s new range of turbo inter-cooled diesel engine range which feature a diesel particulate filter (DPF) that gives a good combination of performance, refinement and efficiency in one package. The new range-topping 1.7CDTi 16v ecoFLEX (130PS) joins three variations of the 1.3CDTi 16v: the 75PS ecoFLEX, a 95PS ecoFLEX unit with Start/Stop as standard and a 1.3 95PS ecoFLEX engine available on the upper trim levels. Most of the 2012 Vauxhall Corsa models will come with a five or six-speed manual gearbox while the rest of the range comes with an available sophisticated four-speed automatic (1.4i 16v) and five-speed Easytronic (1.2i 16v) transmissions.

There are also various model trims to be had with the 2012 Corsa of which are listed as the following: the base model Expression (£8,995), the upgraded S (£11,625), the Exclusiv (£12,530), the Excite (£13,010), the SXi (£13,520), the SE (£14,865), the sporty Limited Edition (£15,080) and SRi (£15,600), and the top of the line VXR (£18,900). Included as standard amenities and safety features starting from the base model and above are as follows: Speed-sensitive power-assisted steering; electrically operated front windows and adjustable door mirrors; Remote-controlled central deadlocking; Mobile phone system with Bluetooth®; Air conditioning; Multi-function trip computer; Leather-covered sports steering wheel with audio controls; CD player with MP3 format/auxiliary-in socket/stereo radio; Rain-sensitive windscreen wipers; Anti-lock braking system with brake assistance; Electronic engine deadlock immobilizer; Driver’s and front passenger’s dual-stage airbags; Front seat side-impact and full-size curtain airbags among many others.

For all those loyal owners of the Vauxhall/Opel Corsa model who have been waiting to upgrade their old ones, now would be the perfect time to get your hands on a new one.

12-passenger 2012 Nissan NV priced from $31,690*

2012 Nissan NV3500 Passenger Van

Nissan will slowly be expanding its commercial vehicle lineup here in the United States, and the next product to hit dealerships is this 2012 NV3500 passenger van. Pricing has now officially been set, with the base 12-passenger NV3500 carrying an MSRP of $31,690 (*not including destination charges). Tick every option box on the NV configurator and a fully decked-out NV3500 SL V8 with leather and navigation will run you just shy of $40,000.

The NV passenger van is mechanically the same as its cargo van kin, meaning power comes from either a 4.0-liter V6 with 261 horsepower and 281 pound-feet of torque or a 5.6-liter V8 with 317 hp and 385 lb-ft of twist. Both engines are mated exclusively to a heavy-duty five-speed automatic transmission and only send power to the NV’s rear wheels. Inside, the NV3500 boasts all the creature comforts of any passenger vehicle, including a touch-screen infotainment system, lots of storage space and mobile office capability.

Following the launch of the NV3500 passenger van, Nissan will bring the smaller NV200 – the Taxi of Tomorrow, for those of you keeping track – to market. All in, Nissan aims to have a full line of commercial vehicles on sale here in the U.S. within the next few years.

NHTSA ends 27-month investigation into Ford E-Series vans

Sunday, April 29th, 2012

2008 Ford E-250 Commercial van - front three-quarter view, silver

More than two years ago, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration began investigating the 1997-2008 Ford Econoline/E-350 and E-450 over faulty HVAC temperature controls. According to The Detroit News, stories of melting switches leading to smoke and hot buttons on the dash were recounted in 1,036 complaints received by NHTSA. Two years ago, the government agency upgraded the case to an engineering analysis, but its testing has led to the case being closed without determining that a recall is required.

Two fires due to the short circuits were also reported, but NHTSA found that the layout of the switch tended to prevent a fire when it went bad. Although there won’t be a recall, Ford has redesigned the switch and is informing dealers and customers about replacing the switch and electrical connector.

The vans that were under the agency’s microscope overlap with the 1999-2008 E-Series models in question in a lawsuit over flaking fuel-tank liners. Still, for perspective, the E-Series has been America’s best-selling full-sized van for decades, and according to Ford, those from 1997-2008 have done more than a billion miles.
