2014 Mazda6 wagon rolls up on video

Friday, August 31st, 2012

Filed under: , , , ,

Mazda taped the ceremony commemorating production of the 2014 Mazda6 at its Hofu No. 2 plant in Japan, and now we have it. There are a few dark glimpses of the Euro-spec Mazda6 wagon as a couple of them roll out and do loops for the factory workers, but the cameras don’t spend a lot of time on the car. A more well-lit demonstration will likely be seen at the Moscow Motor Show later this month.

The 14-minute video is in Japanese, so once you’re finished watching the car you can enjoy the executive speeches, and it ends with a cheer by the workers. Check it out below.

From Prague to Mongolia in an abused Renault Kangoo

Friday, August 31st, 2012

Last Rat Renault Kangoo Mongol Rally

If you haven’t heard of the Mongol Rally, we suggest you acquaint yourself. The charity event starts in Europe and ends in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. Unlike most rallies, there is no defined route or support staff. Participants must simply survive long enough to make it to the finish line in one piece. That would be challenging enough in a well-equipped off roader like a Nissan Patrol or Toyota Hilux, but those who take up the challenge must do so in either a vehicle with an engine displacing no more than 1.2 liters or an emergency services vehicle like an ambulance or fire truck.

At the end of the rally, the surviving vehicles are either auctioned or donated to cash-strapped local organizations. This year, New Yorkers Ota Ulc and Nick Jarret have partnered with Prague local Karel Vancura in an attempt to trace the 10,000 miles from Prague to Mongolia in a Renault Kangoo. The “Last Rat to Mongolia” team bought their car sight-unseen and have outfitted the quirky little van for the trek with the help of a local mechanic. Skid plates, rally lights, a roof rack and a gaggle of jerry cans are all part of the plan.

A total of 300 teams will attempt the continental crossing, each supporting their own charities along the way. The Last Rats are raising funds for UNICEF and Lotus Children’s Centre Charitable Trust. You can follow their progress on Facebook or at the Mongol Rally site, and can kick them a couple of bucks via the team’s JustGiving site. What else are you going to use the money for? Another coffee?

2012 Vauxhall Astra

Thursday, August 30th, 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.

Porsche 928 H50 Concept is the ghost of Panamera past

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

Filed under: , , , , , , ,

1987 Porsche 928 H50 Concept

There are plenty of reasons to hang around Pebble Beach this time of year, including the fact that manufacturers love to use the Concours d’Elegance as an excuse to roll out some of the more inventive concepts of days gone by. This year, Porsche parked the evolutionary ancestor to the mighty Panamera at its display.

The 1987 concept is one of two the German automaker whipped up as test beds for the idea of a four-seat, four-door sports car. All told, the automaker clocked more than 5,000 miles on this particular creation before deciding the extended 928 architecture couldn’t deliver the rigidity requirements necessary to wear the Porsche crest.

The H50 Concept delivered 330 horsepower from a V8 engine, which was enough to push this awkward-looking long-roof to a 168-mile-per-hour top speed. Certainly nothing to sneeze at in ’87. Seeing the machine parked next to its eventual progeny made drawing parallels between the two all too easy, especially in the hindquarters. Check out the gallery to see what we mean.

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.

Meet the man who put 170K miles on this Corvair van in four years

Wednesday, August 29th, 2012

Depth of Speed covers John Jackson's 1964 Chevrolet Corvair Van

John Jackson is our kind of guy. As a professional automotive photographer, he’s managed to combine his passion for photography and beautiful machinery into a vocation. But unlike most shooters, Jackson prefers to get off the beaten path to suss out the custom rides that would typically get passed over in favor of big-shop productions. How does he do that? He takes to the road in his own custom 1964 Chevrolet Corvair van. There’s no air conditioning, and the air-cooled engine can only crank the van up to 60 mph, but that hasn’t stopped Jackson from covering 170,000 miles in just four years.

That may seem absurd in a world where modern minivans offer three-zone climate control and can outrun most classic sports cars in the 0-60 dash. But as Jackson put it, in 1964, people drove these things across country all the time. Amen.

All told, he puts an average of 60,000 miles a year on the van, which underscores something in which we believe wholeheartedly: if you have a classic car, drive it. Few actions can lead to death and decay faster than leaving a machine squirreled away in a garage somewhere. Check out Depth of Speed’s look at Jackson and his classic Chevrolet van below.

Porsche bringing Panamera wagon concept to the Paris Motor Show

Wednesday, August 29th, 2012

Filed under: , , , ,

Ask an automaker what buyers say they want from the next generation of a certain vehicle, and one of the answers will almost certainly be “More room.” Porsche Panamera buyers are no different, having done enough clamoring for additional cargo space that Porsche sees reason to at least test the idea. Last month there were rumors of such, Automotive News has now confirmed that a concept will be arriving at the Paris Motor Show and be used to judge reaction.

Of course, we’d been hoping that Panamera development would be focused in the other direction first, something in the two-door variety that would satisfy our hankerings for a new 928 GTS. We’re happy to report that, also according to Auto News, work on that is progressing as well, but the potential wagon money and the Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake have beckoned the Griswold’s Vacation version to the plate first.

Should the wagon concept come to life it won’t do so before 2016, and it will be part of the multitudinous plans being developed for the second-generation car on its more versatile platform. So far the possibilities include the aforementioned two-door and a four-seater convertible, a long-wheelbase version for China, and perhaps the wagon, with Bentley adding a new twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 in the mix and platform cross-pollenization with the next Bentley GT and GTC. We’ll have more information from the Paris Motor Show floor.

Toyota dumps four-cylinder Sienna for 2013, details other MY changes

Wednesday, August 29th, 2012

Filed under: ,

2013 Toyota Sienna - profile view - silver

The four-cylinder Toyota Sienna is officially a thing of the past. Toyota has opted to ditch the minivan’s entry-level 2.7-liter engine, thereby making the 266-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 standard equipment. The move makes some sense, as the entry-level four cylinder didn’t really manage better fuel economy – the 187-hp powertrain managed 19 miles per gallon city and 24 highway, whereas the V6 gets 18/25.

Buyers can look forward to a few small changes for the 2013 model year, including easier-to-clean fabrics on LE trim as well as an eight-way power adjustable driver’s seat and four-way power passenger throne. LE guise also delivers three-zone climate control with individual control for the driver, passenger and rear seats. Stepping up to Limited trim will net consumers a standard Blind Spot Monitor, though the tech may also be had on SE and XLE versions as an individual option.

Prices have jumped up a bit, starting with the base Sienna at $25,450, or $1,390 more than the 2012 model. Toyota says that on average, prices have increased by around $466 over all trims. The topped-out Sienna all-wheel drive Limited tips the wallet at $41,240 before tacking on any additional options. Check out the press release below.
