Cadillac CTS and SRX net top NHTSA safety scores [w/video]

Friday, January 13th, 2012

Filed under: , , , , , ,

Cadillac has earned itself a gaggle of five-star ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s New Car Assessment Program for the 2012 CTS sedan and wagon and SRX crossover. The CTS earned four stars for the rollover test, but five stars in the frontal and side tests, giving it a score of five stars overall. The SRX returned the same results and the rakish CTS Coupe hasn’t yet been rated.

Follow the jump for videos of both Cadillacs earning their stars and for a press release with more information.

Renault reveals facelifted 2012 Sc

Friday, January 13th, 2012

Filed under: , , ,

The Renault Scénic is king of Europe’s compact MPV hill, and changes for the 2012 model arriving in February aim to keep it there. Outside, the range (Scénic and Grand Scénic) gets restyled schnozzes with LED running lights, new taillights, new wheels and two new colors, Azzurro Blue and Damask Red.

The engine range has been expanded with two smaller-capactiy four-cylinder powerplants, one being a 1.2-liter gas engine and the other a 1.5-liter diesel. And if Renault’s involvement in Formula One means anything to you, those lumps are said to benefit from F1 tech, notably Stop & Start and brake energy regeneration.

Carryover technology like the TomTom navigation will be supplemented in the 2012 models with Hill Start Assist and Renault’s Visio System that bundles a lane-departure warning feature with automatic high beams. You’ll find out about the rest of the goodies in the press release after the jump, and every angle of the newer, handsomer Scénic is in the gallery of high-res images.

The most beautiful naked body I?ve ever seen.

Friday, January 13th, 2012

For only the third time in my life, Mercedes-Benz is debuting a new SL roadster. Three times in almost four decades isn?t much. In fact, the R107 SL went on sale before I was born, and by the time it was replaced, I owned a car myself. The car that replaced it in 1990, the [...]

Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series Estate preparing to storm the supermarket

Friday, January 13th, 2012

Filed under: , ,

Yes. A thousand times, yes.

It’s no secret that we – and every other automotive enthusiast on the plant – love insanely fast wagons. So it comes as no surprise that we’re seriously excited to see this, the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series Estate, come to life.

All of the bulgy bits you see here – the front bumper, massive air intakes, wide fender flares and vented (yet camouflaged) hood – are all found on the similarly equipped C63 AMG Black Series Coupe. The only major difference here is that this wagon still sports oval exhaust pipes, rather than the squared-off ones found on the coupe, but that’s an easy fix that may come into play later in the hot wagon’s development.

We expect what’s under the hood to be exactly the same as the two-door Black Series: Merc’s naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8, massaged to the tune of 510 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque. All that power will go straight to the rear wheels via the seven-speed AMG Speedshift MCT dual-clutch transmission.

Mercedes-Benz doesn’t sell the standard C63 AMG Estate here in North America, so we don’t expect the Black Series to touch ground here on our shores. Sad stuff, but just knowing that this beast exists somewhere in the world makes our hearts skip a few beats. See the hotness for yourself in the attached high-res image gallery.

Nissan initiates multi-vehicle recall over faulty bolts

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

Filed under: , , , , , , , ,

Nissan is recalling just over 14,700 vehicles from the 2011 and 2012 model years over faulty bolts in the engine. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, “bolts that connect the engine oil cooler and the engine oil filter to the engine in these vehicles may have been manufactured to below specification strength.”

Affected Nissan vehicles include the 2011-12 Pathfinder, 2011-12 Xterra, 2012 NV and 2012 Frontier. Additionally, the 2011 Infiniti FX and 2012 Infiniti M are being recalled for this issue.

The NHTSA report states that if there is an engine oil leak, pressure would drop and the engine could possibly seize. Bad news all around.

The recall is expected to kick off in mid-January, and Nissan dealers will replace the connector bolts free of charge. To read the full NHTSA report, follow the jump.

A Heavy-Duty Perspective

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

Amidst the usual stream of crossovers, sedans, and two-doors passing through the Automobile Magazine garage, a heavy-duty truck is an anomaly. The slow steering, the graceless ride, and the hard-shifting transmission are strange qualities for a modern four-wheeled vehicle, even if they are the designed-in traits of massive capability. Every time we drive a heavy-duty [...]

2012 Ford Mondeo

Wednesday, January 11th, 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.
