2012 Vauxhall Astra

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

Vauxhall, an automotive division of General Motors, has recently released for 2012 their newly redesigned Astra model lineup. It is being offered as a 5-door hatchback to compete in the suddenly crowded European compact vehicle category with the UK as its primary target market. There will be a variety of new revolutionary petrol and diesel engines made available to power the Astra starting with three ECOTEC petrol engines– two different specs of 1.4i inline-4 with outputs of 87hp and 100hp, and a 1.6i producing a modest 115hp.

The ECOTEC diesel engines on the other hand will come in two all-new inline-4 specifications with common rail multi-injection and variable geometry turbocharger: a 4-cylinder 1.4i producing 140hp and the proven 1.6i with a 180 horsepower rating. As if those are not enough, Vauxhall has also introduced their lineup of all-new ecoFLEX diesel units: a 1.3CDTi engine good for 95hp, a pair of 1.7CDTi versions producing 110hp and 125hp respectively, and the range topping 2.0CDTi that gives out a torque filled 165hp for smooth acceleration. All engine variations will come with 16-valves and variable valve timing (VVT) technology to produce better fuel economy and mileage.

Those engines will then find a place under the bonnet of any of the nine model trims for the new Vauxhall Astra. The base models Expression and ES will start at a reasonably priced £12,995. The other trims and its expected starting prices are as follows: Exclusiv (£16,670), Excite (£17,435), SRi (£18,635), ES Tech (£19,035), SE (£20,100), SRi VX Line (£20,825), and the aptly named top of the line Elite (£21,125).

Since the Vauxhall Astra has a lot of competition in its class, it has been given a host of the usual standard goodies, and then some, of which are listed next. Some cabin amenities include aircon, radio CD player with MP3 and aux-in socket, electric front windows, seat height adjuster, electrically adjustable/heated door mirrors, adjustable steering column, steering wheel mounted audio controls (from mid-tier trims), mobile phone system with Bluetooth®, satellite navigation system with 7” colour monitor, USB connection with iPod control, among many others.

Safety equipments includes Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) with ABS, driver/ front passenger/ curtain airbags, remote controlled alarm system with central locking, cruise control, rain-sensitive windscreen wipers, automatic lighting control, anti-dazzle rear-view mirror, to name a few. There is also the revolutionary Start/Stop System which comes standard with the 1.3 CDTI ecoFLEX and the more powerful (165PS) 2.0CDTi 16v engines. If you want to tick the option box, go for the Sportive Pack comprising of unique front bumper, side sills, rear lower skirt, rear spoiler and body colour grille bar. You will discover that you can never go wrong in making the Vauxhall Astra hatchback sportier than it already looks.

2012 Volkswagen Golf

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

The pioneer in hot hatchbacks – the Volkswagen Golf – is back with some new engine and model versions for 2012. Although many rival automotive brands have caught up with the Golf in terms of popularity, sales and technological advancement over the years, the VW Golf’s reputation alone still gives it a notch of an advantage over its counterparts with regards to buyer preference particularly in the European market. The 2012 version of the VW Golf is now available for sale in the UK as a 3-door or 5-door hatchback with 5 distinct models but with the same core values- fun to drive, solidly built and competitively priced.

Without further ado, here are the five 2012 Golf models and its respective trims and base prices which are as follows: The entry level Golf starting at £15,850 up to £21,310 with 4 trims namely the S, the Match, the Blue Motion and the GT. For those who love the sun and driving with the roof down, there’s the all-new Golf Cabriolet model which is only sold as a 2-door version with 3 trims starting with the S at £20,720, the SE for £22,455, and the GT for £25,295.

The Golf Plus is a roomy version of the entry level model and comes available with 5 doors in 2 variants with the S at £15,780 and the SE at £19,370. For those who like more room for the family, there’s the Golf Estate with three trims starting with the S (£17,960), the SE (£20,095), and the Sportline (£21,965).

And last but certainly not the least among them, the world renowned Golf GTI model which is favored by car reviewers and enthusiasts alike. This is the most powerful and sporty version and comes in four trims namely the GTD (£24,635), the GTI (£25,305), the GTI Edition 35 (£27,525), and the top of the model line Golf R (£31,420).

With the exception of the Golf Blue Motion trim which is powered solely by a fuel efficient 1.6L 105hp turbo-diesel engine, any other Golf model can be had in three variants of the 5-cylinder petrol engines (two 1.2L with 85hp and 105hp; and a 1.4L with 122hp) and four variants of the 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel engines (two 1.6TDi with 90hp and 105hp; a 1.6L Blue Motion Technology with 105hp; and a 2.0TDi 140hp). A standard five or six-speed manual gearbox transfers power to the front wheels although an optional six or seven-speed automatic transmission is also available.

Even though the 2012 VW Golf is deemed a tad expensive compared to other cars in its class, its long list of standard amenities, safety features and overall fun factor will do justice to its asking price. Nothing else out there can compare to the 35 years of constant evolution by the VW Golf, testament to the company’s pursuit of delivering to the consumers a vehicle with a fun to drive dynamics in an overall quality package.

Mini Traveller/Spacebox mule suggests van/MPV cometh

Mini Spacebox/Traveller Mule - red - front three-quarter dynamic view

It looks like BMW is set to put the Mini back in minivan, with an enlarged version of its Countryman crossover.

Our spy photographers snagged these shots of the jumbo-sized Mini mule testing in Europe and wearing conventional Countryman bodywork. But if you look closely, you can see that the front wheels have moved forward a bit, suggesting the Mini people mover will have a longer wheelbase than the Countryman. It should also prove to be wider to accommodate three across in the backseat, which is probably why the mule has those extended fender flares.

Sources say the five-passenger Mini van will debut as a concept named “Spacebox,” though the production version could pick up the vintage “Traveller” moniker. Expect to see something on the streets by 2014.

Check out all the high-res images in our gallery.

Audi reveals full details and specs for 2013 RS4 Avant

2013 Audi RS4 Avant - front three-quarter view, red

Audi has finally gotten around to serving up details on the company’s 2013 RS4 Avant. Buyers can look forward to plopping their money down on a wagon with a full 450 horsepower served up by a naturally-aspirated 4.2-liter V8 engine. With 317 pound-feet of torque on hand, the German manufacturer says its new long roof can sprint to 60 mph in a mere 4.7 seconds on its way to a top speed of 174 mph. A seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox handles shifting duty, while Quattro all-wheel drive dumps the grunt to the ground. A sport rear differential will also be available to those who plan on doing more than setting grocery run records.

In addition to the galactic levels of thrust on hand, engineers have graced the RS4 Avant with new wave-design disc brakes, though ceramic stoppers are also available at extra cost. Audi says the new electromechanical power steering system helps give the driver additional feedback, while a quick 16:4 steering rack, massive stabilizer bars and a ride height that’s nearly an inch lower than the standard A4 Avant help the machine handle twists in the tarmac. Sounds fun to us. Audi says the 2013 RS4 Avant will land in Germany starting this fall with an MSRP of €76,600 – a wallet-thumping $96,000 USD – a sum that goes a ways toward explaining why we don’t expect it in North America. Check out the full press blast for all the juicy details.

New Mazda Flairwagon offers nothing of the sort

New Mazda Flairwagon - pink - front three-quarter view

Joining the AZ-Wagon, AZ-Offroad, Carol and delightfully named Scrum Wagon, Mazda has completed its micro-mini line-up with this, the Flairwagon. Underneath the badging this is actually a Suzuki Palette, a five-door, four-seater kei car introduced in Japan in 2008.

It appears Mazda has maintained most of the Palette’s option sheet, so depending on trim the Flairwagon is available with either a naturally aspirated or turbocharged 660-cc VVT engine, front-wheel drive or full-time all-wheel drive, keyless entry and pushbutton start, Hill Hold Control and Stop/Start, a cold storage glove box, folding rear seat, and a power sliding rear door on the left. The only transmission on offer will be a CVT.

That’s the top tier IS Limited Edition trim pictured above, and even it looks like it keeps its flair on the inside – which probably isn’t such a bad thing. Scroll down to read a press release with more info on it.

2012 Ford Mondeo

Sunday, July 29th, 2012

 

It is an extraordinary feat for an American automotive company to corner a good chunk of the European market, particularly in the UK where it is considered to be the melting pot for the global automotive industry. Vehicles of all makes, brands and models is a common sight in the country which is why its surprising to see the Ford Mondeo fitting in nicely with dominant European brands such as BMW and Audi, even if the bulk of this particular model’s sales revenue come from the fleet industry.

One of Ford’s secret to success is catering to the tastes of the UK market and then building a solid line of products using quality materials and revolutionary engines. The Ford Mondeo is no exception and testament to this is its ability to establish a stronghold in the rental fleet business through the years and eventually trickling down to individual sales. Taking things a step further, the Mondeo has been redesigned for 2012 using Ford’s Kinetic Design and ECOnetic technologies, both resulting in improved fuel efficiency and matching good looks.

The 2012 Ford Mondeo is now available for sale in the UK as a stylish 5-door hatchback or estate. There are five models available namely the Edge, Zetec, Titanium, Titanium X and the Titanium X Sport. Prices start for as low as £17,795 for the base Edge model up to £26,845 for the top of the line Titanium X Sport version. Included among the standard features (depending on model tier) are the following: radio/CD with USB connectivity and voice control system, leather steering wheel, CFC-free air conditioning, keyless start with start/stop button, courtesy and entry lights, power windows, power folding mirrors, heated windscreen and rear window, auto start/stop system, anti-theft system, remote alarm with central lock system, airbags for safety, stability control system with ABS, and alloy wheels, to name just a few.

The five model trims available for the Mondeo are also equipped with different diesel and petrol engine configurations which have auto start-stop system to reduce emissions. The engine displacements can be had in the turbocharged 1.6L and 2.0L EcoBoost petrol powerplants producing 160 and 240 horsepower respectively; and the 1.6L (115hp) and 2.0L (163hp) Duratorq TDCi turbocharged diesel engines.

Although a 5-speed manual is standard, there is also an available new powertrain called the Ford PowerShift which uses an advanced 6-speed automatic dual-clutch transmission that selects the next proper gear for your driving speed at the right moment giving better fuel efficiency and mileage. To top it all, buyers will also get the chance to use Ford’s configurator tool which basically gives them the option to tweak their desired Mondeo model according to their own specification.

Honda’s versatile little N Box+ hits the scene

Sunday, July 29th, 2012

Filed under: , ,

Honda N Box+

Last November, Honda introduced the N Box, an all-new kei car, and it has been a great success to date. Less than a year on and with nearly 100,000 sold, the automaker has introduced the N Box+, an evolution showcasing the additional possibilities of the microvan.

Putting the “plus” in the N Box+ are the Universal Bridge and the Multi-space System. The former is an integrated aluminum loading ramp in the cargo floor that can be extended, U-Haul style, to ease loading. The latter is a set of panels that can break the cargo bay into different configurations, from shifting the height of the floor to creating a full-length bed once the two rows of seats are lowered.

The N Box+ comes in all kinds of configurations and paint schemes, from ¥1,350,000 ($16,948 U.S.) for the front-wheel, naturally aspirated drive G trim, to ¥1,870,000 for the four-wheel-drive, two-tone G Package Turbo with with paddle shifters. All N Box+ models have 660cc engines (per kei car regulations) and a CVT. Scroll down for the press release and get a load of the funkiness in the attached photo gallery.

Ford C-Max Energi plug-in hybrid priced at $29,995 after tax credit

Sunday, July 29th, 2012

Filed under: , , , ,

The U.S. federal tax credit for plug-in vehicles maxes out at $7,500 for cars with batteries that are 16 kWh or larger. The Ford C-Max Energi plug-in hybrid doesn’t have that big of a pack, so the most the feds will grant you for buying one is $3,750. Still, the Energi’s just-announced price of $33,745 is competitive in the plug-in space, since most people will end up paying $29,995.

Ford calls the Energi “America’s most affordable plug-in hybrid,” but that would seem to be just barely the case. The $33,745 price includes destination fees. The Toyota Prius Plug-In, with those fees, is priced at $32,760, and it qualifies for $2,500 in federal tax credits, so it comes to $30,260 in the end. That’s just $265 more than the Energi. To make another comparison, the regular hybrid C-Max will cost $25,995, including destination. Both of these Ford vehicles will be available later this year.

The C-Max Energi is Ford’s first production plug-in hybrid and has a 20-mile all-electric range and 95 miles per gallon equivalent rating. If you’d like to build your own Ford C-Max Energi, the configurator website is here.

Mercedes-Benz recalling 2007-09 E350 Wagon for rear suspension issue

Sunday, July 29th, 2012

Filed under: , , , , , ,

2009 Mercedes-Benz E350 4Matic

Uh oh. If you’re the owner of a 2007-2009 Mercedes-Benz E350 4Matic Wagon, prepare for a recall notice from Mercedes. While it won’t be coming until later in the summer, know that if your car was built between July 1, 2006, and April 30, 2009, its load-leveling suspension may be faulty.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recall report, a connecting rod in the rear suspension could fail, which may cause “reduced vehicle control,” leading to a crash. NHTSA did not specify whether any actual cases involving loss of control have been reported.

Mercedes dealers will be inspecting and replacing the potentially defective part beginning in August, and the company can be reached at 201-573-0350.

Scroll down to read the full recall report.
