2012 BMW 3 Series

Friday, January 17th, 2014

 

Anyone looking to buy a solid entry-level luxury sedan need not look any further than the BMW 3 Series lineup. The car company has had a strong foothold in the luxury sedan segment for years and it has been the barometer for which its competitors have been chasing after. While the notion that European car brands are prohibitively expensive compared to its Asian counterparts may be true, BMW has still kept to its tested recipe of blending refinement, durability and competitive pricing to produce unmatched success in this niche luxury level market.

Scheduled for release in the UK on February 11, 2012, the BMW 3 Series as an entry-level saloon offers affordable opulence in more than just one package. As a matter of fact, in the UK alone there are five trims, seven engines and a very long list of mouthwatering options to be had that even the car dealers themselves get lost in the numbers. Shopping for a new 2012 BMW 3 Series could be a daunting task if one has no idea what the numbers on the different models denotes to. So to keep things simple, a record below is listed according to the series of the engine model so as not to get confused with the different trims, prices and specs.

The 316d, 318d and 320d are all 2.0 litre, inline-4 twin-turbocharged diesel engines with 116hp, 143hp and 184hp respectively. The 320i (184hp), 328i (245hp), 335i (306hp) are all 6-cylinder turbocharged petrol engines with varying degrees of horsepower and fuel economy ratings. Those engine specs are what powers the following 2012 BMW 3-Series trims:

  • The basic ES model with the 316d has an entry price for luxury that starts at £24,880.
  • The SE trim starts at £25,860 and can be had in the following models: 320i, 328i, 316d, 318d, 320d EfficientDynamic/SE. The 320d EfficientDynamics is a tuned down version of the 320d and is designed for fuel efficiency rated at 68.9mpg. It still has 163 horses on tap when needed to accelerate or overtake on the open road.
  • The Sport trim, which starts at £26,860, can be had in: 320i, 316d, 318d, 320d versions.
  • The Modern trim costs between £26,860 to £35,525  is has th efollowing variants: 320i, 328i, 335i, 318d, 320d.
  • The top of the line Luxury trim costs for as much as £37,025 also carries the same engines as the Modern trim under the bonnet but has more feature amenities inside.

 

A 6-speed manual transmission and RWD is standard for all models and so are the following: Bluetooth telephone preparation, USB audio interface, 6.5″ high-resolution Control Display and iDrive controller, 17” alloy wheels (18” for Luxury trim) with run-flat tyres, front/side/curtain airbags, Dynamic Stability Control with ABS, remote alarm with immobiliser, power locks/windows and a host of safety features. There’s also a long list of class-leading optional extras that would rival Santa’s list but one thing is clear: getting any one of the different BMW 3 Series models is worth the splurge.

Hot Wheels Ford Transit Connect is worth more if we keep it in the box

Friday, January 17th, 2014

Filed under: , , , , , ,

Ford Hot Wheels Transit Connect

If the 2014 Transit Connect is anything like it’s utile current-generation predecessor, and we suspect it is, it will undoubtedly be one of the most functional vehicles in North America. Ford has used the occasion of SEMA to turn the TC in to things that both make use of that functionality, and occasionally sort of wreck it in the name of good old-fashioned fun. The Ford Hot Wheels Transit Connect most certainly falls into that second category.

Most TC owners might cite the vehicle’s massive cargo capacity as its top positive trait, though in the case of this wide-bodied Transit said space has been sapped in the name of a 55-inch television screen, a massive Hot Wheels drag strip (continuing a popular theme at SEMA this year) and custom storage for dozens of models from one’s personal hot wheels collection. Designers have also plucked the grippy Recaro seats from the Focus ST, and thrown in a pair of 18-inch tablet screens for connectivity on the go.

Naturally, the Transit Connect wouldn’t be an appropriate SEMA vehicle, or Hot Wheels name-bearer, if it weren’t wearing an eye-popping appearance package. Additional homage to the Focus RS can be found in the blazing blue and orange front fascia and bumpers, while 20-inch wheels make sure the wider (four-inches in front and six-inches in the back) Transit Connect sits just right. The 2.5-liter four-cylinder-engine that powers the Hot Wheels TC ensures that the concept is more show than go, but you probably had that pegged from your first look, anyway.

Scroll down to read all of the details about Ford’s toy-like show car, in the press release below.

Honda to field this awesome Civic Tourer wagon in BTCC next season

Friday, January 17th, 2014

Filed under: , , , ,

Honda Civic Tourer BTCC

We all know that the letters BTCC stand for British Touring Car Championship. But one of those Cs might as well stand for Civic, so dominant has the Honda team been in one of the most competitive tin-top racing series in the world. Honda has taken the manufacturers’ and teams’ titles in the BTCC for the past four years running, and the championship-winning drivers for the past three years have claimed the prize behind the wheel of a Civic. While that might have proven enough for any other manufacturer, Honda is returning again next season to defend its dominant position, and has just revealed the new car with which it intends to do so.

Next year Honda will be back on the grid with another Civic, only this time it’s based on the new Euro-spec Civic Tourer. That will make Honda the only team in the BTCC (and one of only a few worldwide) fielding a wagon-based racing car. In announcing the new BTCC-spec Civic Tourer, the Honda Yuasa Racing team only released this one photo and didn’t reveal much in the way of details, but team manager Peter Crolla indicated that “the weight, wheelbase, layout and suspension remain the same” as the hatchback which it will replace, only with a longer roofline.

Testing of the new touring wagon will commence in January before returning champions Gordon Shedden and Matt Neal will pilot the new Civic Tourer in the season opener at Brands Hatch in the UK in late March. It remains to be seen what car Andrew Jordan (who took the title this year in another Civic with the Pirtek Racing team) will be driving next season, but in the meantime, you can check out the full press release below for more.

Subaru Cross Sport Design Concept is a BRZ with a backpack

Thursday, January 16th, 2014

Subaru Cross Sport Design Concept

Sports cars are a notoriously tough sell over the long-term. Like convertibles, sales of even the best sports cars tend to be front-loaded in the first couple of years, at which point they drop off like a stone. That may serve to explain this mysterious two-door wagonback concept from Subaru, dubbed Cross Sport Design Concept.

While details aren’t exactly thick on the ground, at first blush, this appears to be a higher-riding BRZ with a more utilitarian backpack. Reports suggest the rear-wheel-drive sports coupe’s chassis is riding underneath, despite the fact that the Cross Sport is 2.6 inches longer overall. Assuming the chassis itself is basically unmodified and the 2.0-liter, flat, four-cylinder engine is untouched, this could be a very effective way for Subaru to increase its return on investment in the BRZ’s underpinnings while generating a very cool (if niche) shooting brake model.

With the exception of a few bits of concept car frosting (wood-lined cargo bay floor, overly-detailed steroscopic camera mounts, slivered side mirrors, etc.), this thing looks production ready, and that’s just ducky with us.

Mercedes-Benz CLA shooting brake test car snaps into focus

Thursday, January 16th, 2014

Filed under: , , , , ,

Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake

Last week, we showed you some images of the long-roofed Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake. Those shots of the five-door Mercedes were from a distance and were quite grainy, unfortunately. Today, we have much better shots of the new model, shown testing somewhere in Europe.

These close-up shots, along with the car’s silver finish, give us a slightly better idea of just what the CLA Shooting Brake will look like. In short, it’s kind of exactly what we expected – a smaller CLS Shooting Brake. The tail is oriented more towards style than utility, just like its big brother, meaning this will be more of a “lifestyle” vehicle than an actual, functional wagon. Still, every so often, we’ll choose form over function, and we expect the CLA Shooting Brake to have good looks in spades.

As is the case with the CLS Shooting Brake, we should expect it to adopt the same range of engines and transmissions found in the sedan. If the long-roof CLA arrives in the US, that should mean the 2.0-liter, turbocharged CLA250 and the 355-horsepower CLA45 AMG. Take a look up top for our full smattering of images of the new CLA Shooting Brake.

Road & Track picks its performance car of the year.

Here’s the list of cars brought to the comparison test: Audi R8 V10 Plus; BMW 435i; BMW M6 Competition Package; Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z51; Ferrari F12 Berlinetta; Ford Fiesta ST; Jaguar F-Type V8 S; Jaguar XFR-S; Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S-Model Wagon; Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series; Mini John Cooper Works GP; Nissan GT-R Track Edition; and Porsche Cayman S.

To find out the results of the comparison, head over to Road & Track‘s website or check the press release below, where you’ll also find the magazine’s top-rated vehicles in eight categories. Want more? Head over to the 2013 PCotY hub. But before you do that, take a stab at guessing the winner of PCotY (we’ll give you one hint: it isn’t a Porsche).

Brazil contemplates safety exemption for VW Kombi as it goes out of production today [w/poll]

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

Filed under: , , , , ,

Volkswagen Kombi Last Edition

Brazil: the country of carnivals, indescribable beauty adjacent to abject poverty, Ayrton Senna and old Volkswagen models. Only they’re not old – they’re new, they’re just based on old designs. The original Beetle continued production there long after it had been phased out elsewhere, but the original Kombi van has lasted much longer. That ends today, however, with the iconic VW Microbus ambling out of production on the last day of 2013.

VW kept making the van in Brazil with the original air-cooled 1.2-liter boxer four until 2005, after which the original design was updated with a 1.4-liter water-cooled engine. Today, however, it ultimately falls prey to safety regulations that mandate that all vehicles – no matter how old their design – need to have airbags and ABS, forcing Volkswagen do Brasil to cease production of the Microbus after a 56-year production run. But the latest word is that the Kombi (as it’s presently known) could get a stay of execution – or at least a resurrection in short order.

According to reports, the Brazilian government is looking into granting the Type 2 Microbus an exemption from said safety regulations, reasoning that the van was designed long before the advent of airbags and ABS. If the measure goes through, the Kombi Last Edition (pictured above) could prove not to be the last at all. So what do you think, should the Microbus get an exemption from Brazilian safety regulations for nostalgia’s sake? Vote in our poll below, then have your say in Comments.
