2018 Jeep Compass - Crash Test
 
03:08
Euro NCAP Frontal Impact takes place at 64 Km/h, 40% of the width of the car striking a deformable barrier. In the Full Width test, 100% of the width of the car impacts a rigid barrier at 50 Km/h. In the side impact, a mobile deformable barrier impacts the driver's door at 50 km/h. In the pole test, the car tested is propelled sideways at 32 km/h into a rigid pole. ADULT OCCUPANT Comments The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of both the driver and passenger. Jeep showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. Protection of the front passenger was good for all critical body areas. In the full-width rigid-barrier test, protection of the driver was good. Chest protection for the rear passenger was rated as marginal, based on dummy readings of chest compression, but that of other parts of the body was good or adequate. In the side barrier test, protection of all critical body areas was good and full points were scored. However, in the more severe side pole impact, protection of the chest was rated as poor, based on high rib compressions, although these remained lower than the values at which the risk of fatal injuries becomes unacceptably high. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash injury in the event of a rear-end collision. A geometric assessment of the rear seats also indicated good whiplash protection for occupants sat there. The Compass has a standard-fit autonomous emergency braking system. Tests of its performance at the low speeds at which whiplash injuries are often caused showed good performance with collisions avoided or mitigated at all test speeds. CHILD OCCUPANT Comments In the frontal offset test, protection of both child dummies was rated as good or adequate with the exception of the chest of the 6 year dummy, for which dummy readings of deceleration indicated a weak level of protection. In the side barrier test, protection of both dummies was rated as good. The front passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded. All of the restraint types for which the Compass is designed could be properly installed and accommodated. Pedestrian Protection Comments The bonnet provided predominantly good or adequate protection to the head of a struck pedestrian. The bumper provided good protection to pedestrians' legs and the pelvis was well protected by front end of the car. The autonomous emergency braking system does not have pedestrian-detecting functionality. SAFETY ASSIST Comments The Compass has a seatbelt reminder for the front seats only. The autonomous emergency braking system performed well in tests at highway speeds, with collisions largely avoided or mitigated. A driver-set speed limitation device is standard, as is a lane departure warning system. New 2017 CAR TV "SUBSCRIBE NOW" Music Source: NCM Epic Music Ender Guney

2018 Kia Stinger - Crash Test
 
02:58
Euro NCAP Frontal Impact takes place at 64 Km/h, 40% of the width of the car striking a deformable barrier. In the Full Width test, 100% of the width of the car impacts a rigid barrier at 50 Km/h. In the side impact, a mobile deformable barrier impacts the driver's door at 50 km/h. In the pole test, the car tested is propelled sideways at 32 km/h into a rigid pole. Comments The passenger compartment of the Stinger remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. Kia showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. In the full-width rigid barrier test, the pelvis of the rear passenger dummy slipped beneath the lap portion of the seatbelt. Although dummy injury values were not excessive, the car was penalised and protection for this body area rated as poor. Protection of all critical body areas was good for the driver dummy in this test. In the side barrier impact, the Stinger scored maximum points with good protection of all critical parts of the body. Even in the more severe side pole test, protection of the chest was adequate and that of other body areas was good. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash protection in the event of a rear-end collision. A geometric assessment of the rear seats indicated marginal whiplash protection. The Stinger has a standard-fit autonomous emergency braking system. In tests of its functionality at the low speeds at which many whiplash injuries are caused, the system scored maximum points, with collisions avoided at all test speeds. CHILD OCCUPANT Comments In the frontal offset test, protection of the chest and neck of the 10 year dummy was rated as marginal, the chest on the basis of rib decelerations and the neck on the basis of tensile forces. Protection of the 6 year dummy was good or adequate. In the side barrier test, protection of all critical body areas was good, for both dummies. The front passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded. All of the restraint types for which the Stinger is designed could be properly installed and accommodated. PEDESTRIAN PROTECTION Comments The Stinger has a deployable, 'active' bonnet. Sensors detect when a pedestrian has been struck and actuators lift the bonnet, providing greater clearance to hard structure in the engine compartment. Kia showed that the system worked for different statures of pedestrian and over a wide range of speeds. Accordingly, the car was tested with the bonnet in the raised position. Test results were almost entirely good or adequate, with some poor results recorded on the stiff windscreen pillars and at the base of the windscreen. The protection provided to pedestrians' legs was good or adequate and that provided to the pelvis area was predominantly good. The autonomous emergency braking system performed well in tests of its pedestrian detection, with collisions avoided or mitigated in almost all test scenarios. SAFETY ASSIST Comments The autonomous emergency braking system performed well in tests of its functionality at highway speeds, with collisions avoided or mitigated in all test scenarios. A speed assistance system recognises the local speed limit and provides this information to the driver who can then set the speed limiter appropriately. The lane assistance system warns the driver when the car is drifting out of lane and gently corrects the driving path away from the lane edge. A seatbelt reminder is standard for the front seats but no system is offered for the rear. "New 2017 Stinger GT" "SUBSCRIBE NOW"

2018 Audi A8 - intelligent Drive
 
08:21
Pro Sense Side 00:00 Dynamic All-Wheel Steering 00:35 Rim Protection 01:05 Remote Garage Pilot 01:59 Remote Parking Pilot 03:03 Manoeuvre Assist 04:15 Cross Traffic Assist 05:42 Active Suspension Activated 06:06 Active Suspension Deactivated 06:29 Elevated Entry and Exit 06:39 All-Wheel Steering Activated 07:16 All-Wheel Steering Deactivated 07:35 Full Control Although the A8’s new chassis is good—there’s ample body control and isolation with the car’s standard air springs and adjustable dampers—the active-suspension models we drove weren’t yet fully baked. The optional Audi Intelligence (AI) active suspension, one component of a suite of intelligent features, includes an electric motor at each corner capable of raising or lowering that wheel via a torsion bar linked to the suspension. In effect, there are two springs on each wheel of A8s equipped with the active suspension: an air spring and a torsion bar coupling the wheel carrier to the electric motor. The motors and torsion bars eliminate the need for traditional anti-roll bars by enabling roll control as well as managing pitch and dive. The active setup’s most promising feature, however, is the ability to float the A8’s body over road irregularities. The AI system scans the road ahead with a forward-looking camera (Audi calls the function Preview) and turns that data into wheel motions that follow the road’s shape. Before the front wheels encounter an elevated bump, the body is raised to provide the additional suspension travel needed to absorb the imperfection. Then, as the car passes over, the suspension is extended to trace the road’s topography. Dips and single-wheel events are handled similarly, with the wheels following the terrain while the body remains isolated. The system provides 2.0 inches of lift and 2.4 inches of drop at each wheel, enough to make speed bumps and manhole covers virtually irrelevant. Closed-course demonstrations of the Preview technology were convincing, but we didn’t get to experience it on the open road. Even though the active suspension was fitted to two test cars and performed as promised to limit roll, pitch, and dive, the Preview function wasn’t enabled on those cars. Audi’s Drive Select system is standard and offers three driving modes (Auto, Comfort, and Dynamic) and also integrates control of the AI suspension on cars so equipped. The standard suspension is no slouch itself when it comes to comfort and control. Wheel sizes will start at 19 inches, with options up to 21 inches available. We didn’t sample the optional torque-vectoring Sport rear differential, which no doubt would have improved the handling. Still, we weaved the A8 up a road more appropriate for a Mazda Miata and were impressed with the big Audi’s grip and manners, although no one is pretending a car this large has any business attacking roads that tight. Steering feel, despite efforts to improve its feedback, remains as it is in most other Audis: laser-sight precise, but mostly numb. If Audi could elevate its steering system’s feedback to match its accuracy, it would possess the magic bullet sought by energetic pilots of every executive sedan. The company has figured out that a sedan this long benefits from a tighter turning radius and so offers dynamic all-wheel steering as an option. The system operates over a wide latitude depending on vehicle speed and other factors, behaving as if the steering ratio varies between 9.5:1 and 17.0:1. It’s the inclusion of the rear wheels in the business of turning that makes the real difference. Below 37 mph, the rear wheels turn out of phase with the fronts at an angle of up to 5 degrees, making the A8’s wheelbase feel shorter and shrinking its turning circle by 3.3 feet relative to cars without the system. Above that speed, rear-wheel steering angle is in phase with the fronts and reduced to a maximum of 2 degrees. A cone-smashing parking-lot demonstration proved that you’ll either opt for the four-wheel steering or you’ll do a lot more sawing at the wheel in tight spaces. Hit the Lot Mercifully, the A8 is as well suited to parking-lot duty as Kylie Jenner is to Instagram. The remainder of its AI features are designed to enable low-speed maneuvers in tight spots as well as parking in lots, on the street, or in a garage. Parking Pilot and Remote Parking Pilot enable autonomous parallel or perpendicular parking, although this system, too, wasn’t quite ready for prime time during our demos. During one parallel-parking attempt, we stopped the car manually before it executed autonomous removal of its driver’s-side mirror on a concrete abutment. It was then unable (or unwilling) to extract itself from the parking spot into which it had wedged itself—the automotive equivalent of a toddler’s sit-down protest.

2018 Range Rover Velar - Crash Test
 
03:07
ADULT OCCUPANT Comments The passenger compartment of the Velar remained stable in the frontal offset test. Protection of the passenger dummy was good for all critical body areas. Protection of the knees and femurs was good for both dummies and a similar level of protection is provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. In the full-width rigid-barrier test, protection of the chest of the rear passenger was rated as marginal, based on dummy readings of rib compression. Otherwise, protection of the driver and rear passenger was good or adequate. In both the side barrier test and the more severe side pole impact, protection of all critical body areas was good and the Velar scored maximum points. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash in the event of a rear-end collision. A geometric assessment of the rear seats indicated marginal whiplash protection. The Velar has a standard- fit autonomous emergency braking system. Tests of the functionality of this system at the low speeds at which many whiplash injuries occur showed good performance, with collisions avoided at almost all test speeds. CHILD OCCUPANT Comments In the frontal offset test, protection of the 6 year and 10 year dummies was good or adequate, except for the neck of the 10 year dummy, protection of which was rated as marginal, based on dummy readings of neck tension. In the side barrier impact, protection was good for all critical body areas of both dummies. The front passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded. All of the restraint types for which the Velar is designed could be properly installed and accommodated in the car. PEDESTRIAN PROTECTION Comments The protection provided to the head of a struck pedestrian was predominantly good or adequate over most of the bonnet surface, with some weak and poor results recorded on the stiff windscreen pillars. The bumper provided good protection to pedestrians' legs while protection of the pelvis areas was more mixed, with good and poor results recorded. The autonomous emergency braking system can detect pedestrians and, in tests of this functionality, performed well, with scoring maximum points with collisions avoided or mitigated in all test scenarios. SAFETY ASSIST Comments Tests of the autonomous emergency braking system at highway speeds demonstrated good performance, with collisions avoided or mitigated in all tests.

RANGE ROVER SPORT PHEV IS FIRST SUV TO CLIMB TO HEAVEN’S GATE A dizzying 99 turns and 999 daunting steps didn’t stop the new Range Rover Sport PHEV from completing a world-first at one of China’s most famous landmarks. The petrol-electric performance SUV has become the first vehicle to climb the stairs to the natural rock arch of Heaven’s Gate Plug-in hybrid (PHEV) performance SUV climbs towering 45-degree, 999-step staircase in world-first Dragon Road challenge Range Rover Sport PHEV shows it’s dynamic breadth of capability on one of the world’s most challenging driving roads before tackling the epic climb to Heaven’s Gate rock arch in China 404PS Range Rover Sport combines Ingenium petrol power with battery technology for supreme efficiency and performance – plus zero-emissions capability P400e model was piloted by Le Mans class-winner and Panasonic Jaguar Racing reserve and test driver Ho-Pin Tung The challenge began at the bottom of the legendary 11.3km Tianmen Mountain Road (known as the Dragon Road). The showroom standard Range Rover Sport P400e took on the demanding course, with Panasonic Jaguar Racing’s Ho-Pin Tung behind the wheel and the Terrain Response 2 system in Dynamic mode. At the summit of the road, the Formula E driver optimised Terrain Response for the second part of the challenge, conquering the towering 45-degree staircase of 999 steps leading to China’s legendary Heaven’s Gate using a combination of Ingenium petrol and electric battery power. "I’ve experienced Formula E, Formula 1 and won at the 24 Hours of Le Mans but this was without doubt one of the most demanding driving challenges I’ve ever faced. The Range Rover Sport PHEV performed brilliantly as it inspired real confidence on the mountain road and climbed the stairs up to Heaven’s Gate effortlessly." The new PHEV powertrain gives the Range Rover Sport a zero-emission EV range of up to 50km when fully charged but Ho-Pin Tung used its advanced 300PS Ingenium petrol engine and 116PS electric motor to make short work of the road section of the challenge. The performance SUV then showed its uncompromised all-terrain credentials by climbing the steep staircase to the natural rock arch. This was the hardest Range Rover Sport challenge I’ve ever been involved with because, until we reached the top, we couldn’t categorically say we would succeed. By making it to the summit, we’ve proven the phenomenal capability of the Range Rover Sport plug-in hybrid like never before – with a genuine world first. The Dragon Challenge is the latest in a series of adventures completed by the Range Rover Sport after the PHEV model made its debut in a race against two-time open-water swimming world champion Keri-anne Payne and endurance athlete Ross Edgley in Devon, UK. Previous exploits include a record-setting hill-climb at Pikes Peak, USA, a record crossing of the ‘Empty Quarter’ desert in the Arabian Peninsula and a 2,170m descent of the legendary Inferno downhill course in Mürren, Switzerland.

Acceleration 0 - 100 kmph: 7 sec Max Speed kmph: 200 Max Gradability (%): 40 Tata EVision Concept review Tata Motors marked its 20th year in Geneva with the unveil of its spectacular 'InnoVision' - the Tata EVision Sedan Concept, an electric concept, for the future connected generation and the best so far from the IMPACT 2.0 design philosophy. Stunning exterior design based on 3 key design elements: The 3 dimensional 'Humanity Line' is beautifully crafted in brushed aluminum and runs the entire width of the car. It underlines the grille and lamps of the car which themselves are treated as pieces of high tech 'jewelry.' The Diamond shaped DLO is defined by another aluminum blade which runs from the A to C pillar, visually lowering the profile of the car. The rear is characterized by the animated tail lights, which forms a part of the 'Slingshot' line that starts at the Tata logo and swings around to the body side, visually pushing the car forward in a precise yet balanced dynamism. While the stance of the Tata EVision is graceful yet strong, the striking silhouette is dynamic. The class defining interiors of the EVision takes advantage of the electric drive train and creates a beautiful, welcoming space. The instrument panel hides two digital interfaces that appear only when needed by the users. The space under the Instrument Panel is completely free from any hindrances and adds to the sensation of space, thus luxury. The rear seats are an area of particular note. Fully adjustable, they give the occupants unmatched knee, and headroom. The rear occupant is cosseted in gorgeous hand crafted materials which are punctuated with subtle technical materials and details. Leveraging the strength of the OMEGA architecture, the EVision Sedan Concept is built on a modified, dedicated OMEGA EV architecture, a modular, scalable and flexible architecture to address the range of performance attributes for long-range travel. Key technology highlights Predictive energy management systems based on live traffic and routes. Connected technologies such as cloud computing, analytics, geo-spatial mapping and increased human-machine interface.

2017 Land Rover Discovery - Crash Test
 
02:47
Comments - ADULT OCCUPANT The passenger compartment of the Discovery remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs for both the driver and passenger. Land Rover showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. There was insufficient pressure in the driver's airbag to prevent the head from 'bottoming out' against the steering wheel, and the car was penalised for this. In the full-width rigid barrier test, protection of the driver was good apart from the chest, protection of which was adequate. Readings of chest compression in the rear passenger dummy indicated marginal protection for this body area, with good protection of all others. Dummy readings indicated good protection of all critical body regions in both the side barrier test and the more severe side pole impact. However, in the barrier test, the driver's door became unlatched and the car was penalised. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash injury in the event of a rear-end collision. However, a geometric assessment of the rear seats indicated poor whiplash protection. The Discovery has, as standard, an autonomous emergency braking system. In tests of its low-speed functionality, the system performed well with impacts avoided up to 35km/h and the impact speed reduced up to 50km/h. Comments - CHILD OCCUPANT In the frontal offset test, protection of the neck of the 10 year dummy was rated as marginal, as was that of the chest of the 6 year dummy. Otherwise, protection was good or adequate. In the side barrier test, protection of both dummies was rated as good and maximum points were scored. The front passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided to the driver and the system was rewarded. Most of the restraint types for which the Discovery is designed could be properly installed and accommodated in the vehicle. Comments - PEDESTRIAN PROTECTION The protection provided to the head of a struck pedestrian was good or adequate at most test locations, with some poor results recorded along the front edge of the bonnet. The protection offered by pedestrians' legs by the bumper was good and maximum points were scored. Protection of the pelvis was mixed, with some good and some poor areas. The autonomous emergency braking system scored maximum points in Euro NCAP's tests of its pedestrian protection, with complete avoidance of the target up to 40km/h and adequate speed mitigation thereafter. Comments - SAFETY ASSIST Tests of the autonomous emergency braking system performed well in tests of its functionality at highway speeds. A lane departure warning system is fitted as standard equipment, as is a driver-set speed limiter. A seatbelt reminder is standard equipment on all seating positions including, if fitted, the optional third row seats.

2018 Koenigsegg Agera RS VS 2018 Bugatti Chiron - World’s Fastest Cars!!
 
03:37
The Bugatti Chiron's tite of hitting 0-400-0 kmph in 42.96 seconds could barely last a month as Koenigsegg has managed to do the same, only about six seconds faster, on a Sunday and not even with its fastest car. The whole point of records is that they are meant to be broken. It's the kind of motivation that makes the most competitive of us to step up the game for others. So, when the Bugatti Chiron went from 0-400-0 kmph in 41.96 seconds last month, all eyes were set on which car would manage to top this. That's some incredible feat anyway! However, little did Bugatti know that Swedish carmaker Koenigsegg, which broke the record earlier this week with the Koenigsegg Agera RS performing the same feat in 36.44 seconds, 5.5 seconds fewer than what Bugatti needed. Koenigsegg test driver Niklas Lilja managed to achieve the incredible feat and the record was broken at an airfield in Vandel, Denmark. Not only was the Koenigsegg Agera RS faster across in the overall acceleration and braking time, it also hit 0-400 kmph in less time than the Bugatti - 26.88 seconds versus 32.6 seconds. While you may think it was the automaker's idea to belittle Volkswagen's most priced offering; Koenigsegg says the run was made at the request of the car's owner who wanted to benchmark it against other hypercars. (Koenigsegg Agera RS makes 1360 bhp with the optional pack and 1370 Nm of torque) Interestingly, Koenigsegg Agera RS isn't the company fastest offering. That would go to the One:1. Nevertheless, the Agera RS is an absolute beast that draws power from a 5.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine. With an optional engine upgrade, the hypercar makes up to 1360 bhp of power and 1370 Nm of torque. Koenigsegg also packs in a removal roll cage in the car.

Photo Release: Bugatti delivers first Chiron1 super sports cars to customers 1Fuel consumption, l/100km: 35.2 in urban areas / 15.2 in extra urban areas / 22.5 combined; combined CO2 emissions g/km: 516; efficiency class: G This week, the doors of Bugatti’s “Atelier” at the brand’s headquarters in Molsheim opened for the delivery of the first customer vehicles in the Chiron1 series. Three of the world’s most powerful, fastest, most luxurious and most exclusive production super sports cars are now starting their journey to their owners in Europe and the Middle East. They were sent off on their journey by the 50 or so production, quality assurance and logistics team members. Bugatti intends to produce up to 70 Chiron at its plant this year. The French luxury brand will be presenting a further customer vehicle at this year’s Geneva International Motor Show (9 to 19 March 2017). The newly developed W16 engine In order to achieve a 25 percent increase in performance compared to its predecessor, almost every single part of the engine was looked at and newly developed. This feat of engineering resulted in the W16 engine of the Bugatti Chiron1 being able to develop an unbelievable 1,103 kW (1,500 bps) from its 8 litres of displacement. The engine reaches its maximum torque of 1,600 Nm thanks to the turbocharger which Bugatti actually even developed itself. The 4 turbochargers are now double-powered and already guarantee maximum torque at 2,000 rpm, and the torque is maintained at this level all the way up to 6,000 rpm. The result is unbelievable acceleration which only comes to an end in the twilight zone somewhere beyond the 400 km/h mark.

Toyota showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. In the full-width frontal impact, protection of the driver and rear passenger small female dummies was good apart from the chest, protection of which was adequate. In both the side barrier test and the more severe side pole impact, the C-HR scored maximum points, with good protection of all body regions. Likewise, for whiplash protection in the event of a rear end collision, tests on the front seat and a geometric assessment of the rear seats indicated good protection. The C-HR has, as standard equipment, Toyota Safety Sense, which includes the "Pre-Collision System". This autonomous emergency braking system scored maximum points in tests of its performance at low, city speeds, with collisions being avoided at all test speeds Comments - CHILD OCCUPANT In the frontal offset test, dummy readings of neck tension in the 10 year dummy and chest deceleration in the 6 year dummy indicated a marginal level of protection. Otherwise, protection was rated as adequate or good. In the side barrier test, maximum points were scored, with good protection of all critical body regions. The front passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided to the driver and the system was rewarded. All of the child restraints for which the C-HR is designed could be properly installed and accommodated by the car, except in the rear centre seating position. Comments - PEDESTRIAN PROTECTION Tests of the protection offered by the bonnet to the head of a struck pedestrian showed good or adequate results in most locations. The bumper provided good protection to pedestrians' legs at all test locations. Protection of the pelvis area was good in places but poor in others. The Pre-Collision System includes pedestrian detection and the system, part of Toyota Safety Sense, showed good performance in Euro NCAP's tests. At low speeds, collision with the pedestrian target was avoided in all test scenarios and, at higher speeds, the impact was avoided or mitigated in most situations. Comments - SAFETY ASSIST Tests of the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (part of Toyota Safety Sense) at highway speeds revealed good performance. When approaching a slower-moving car, collision was avoided at all test speeds. Approaching a stationary car, or a decelerating car, collision was avoided in most cases and mitigated in others. The C-HR also has, as standard, a lane assistance system, as is a seatbelt reminder for the front and rear seating positions. A driver-set speed limiter is standard equipment and its score is included in this rating. A camera-based speed limitation information function is available as an option as part of Toyota Safety Sense and the additional points for this functionality are not included here. Tested Model: Toyota C-HR Hybrid Body Type: - 5 door SUV Year Of Publication: 2017 Kerb Weight: 1470kg VIN From Which Rating Applies: - all C-HRs Class: Small Off-Road Euro NCAP Frontal Impact takes place at 64 Km/h, 40% of the width of the car striking a deformable barrier. In the Full Width test, 100% of the width of the car impacts a rigid barrier at 50 Km/h. In the side impact, a mobile deformable barrier impacts the driver's door at 50 km/h. In the pole test, the car tested is propelled sideways at 32 km/h into a rigid pole.

2017 Honda Civic Hatchback - Crash Test
 
03:21
Euro NCAP Frontal Impact takes place at 64 Km/h, 40% of the width of the car striking a deformable barrier. In the Full Width test, 100% of the width of the car impacts a rigid barrier at 50 Km/h. In the side impact, a mobile deformable barrier impacts the driver's door at 50 km/h. In the pole test, the car tested is propelled sideways at 32 km/h into a rigid pole. ADULT OCCUPANT Comments The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. Honda showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. In the full-width rigid barrier test, protection of the driver was good or adequate. However, for the rear passenger, dummy readings of chest compression indicated a weak level of protection for this part of the body. For the side barrier and side pole tests, the Civic scored maximum points with good protection of all critical body areas. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision. However, a geometric assessment of the rear seats indicated poor whiplash protection in those positions. The standard-fit autonomous emergency braking system performed well in tests of its functionality at the low speeds typical of city driving at which many whiplash injuries are caused, with collisions avoided at all test speeds. CHILD OCCUPANT Comments In the frontal offset test, dummy readings of neck tensions indicated marginal protection for both the 6 and the 10 year dummy. In the 10 year dummy, chest deceleration also indicated weak protection of this part of the chest. In the side barrier test, the head of the 10 year dummy (on the impacted side) 'bottomed out' the curtain airbag and a hard contact was recorded. This hard contact and the head injury values it generated indicated poor head protection. The front passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded. Nevertheless, universal restraints failed the installation test on the front passenger seat owing to the position of the buckle. Otherwise, all restraint types for which the Civic is designed could be installed and accommodated in the car. PEDESTRIAN PROTECTION Comments The bonnet provided predominantly good or adequate protection to the head of a struck pedestrian but weak and poor results were recorded along the base of the windscreen and along the stiff windscreen pillars. The protection provided by the bumper to pedestrians' legs was good at all test locations and maximum points were scored. Protection of the pelvis was also good. The autonomous emergency braking system can detect pedestrians as well as other vehicles. In tests, the system performed well with impacts avoided or mitigated at all test speeds. SAFETY ASSIST Comments The autonomous emergency braking system performed well in the tests of its functionality at highways speeds, with collisions avoided or mitigated at all test speeds. The Civic has a seatbelt reminder system for the front and rear seats. Also standard is an intelligent speed limiter. This indicates the local speed limit to the driver, who can then choose to set the limiter appropriately. A lane keep assistance system alerts the driver when the car is drifting out of lane and gently steers the car away from the lane marking. interior New 2016 2017 Test Drive "SUBSCRIBE NOW"

1998 Toyota Corolla vs 2015 Toyota Corolla (Auris) - Crash Test
 
02:55
Graphic crash test between new and old Toyota Corollas shows why we need drivers in newer cars ROAD safety experts have renewed calls for drivers to get behind the wheel of newer cars after an unprecedented crash test revealed shocking results. ROAD safety experts have renewed calls for teens and elderly drivers to get behind the wheel of newer cars after an unprecedented crash test between new and old Toyota Corollas showed how far technology has advanced in 20 years. The independent authority Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) this week conducted a head-on crash test between the latest Toyota Corolla hatchback and a 1998 model — with graphic results. The test showed the driver of the older Corolla would likely have died as a result of the 64km/h collision, whereas the driver of the latest Corolla — which has a five-star safety rating — would have sustained minor injuries. Figures show older vehicles (built in the year 2000 or earlier) only represent one in five cars on our roads — but are involved in one-third of fatal crashes. The data shows the average age of all vehicles on Australian roads is 9.8 years — but the average age of vehicles involved in fatal crashes is 12.9 years (up from an average of 12.5 years six months ago). The figures go some way to explaining why deaths of 17 to 25-year-olds and elderly road users (those aged 65 and over) are over-represented in fatal crashes when compared to other age groups. “Not everyone can afford a brand-new car however, the figures show that there is less chance of being killed in a newer and safer car than an older and less safe vehicle,” said the boss of ANCAP, James Goodwin. “Motorists should buy the safest car they can afford,” said Mr Goodwin. The president of the Australasian College of Road Safety, and former chairman of ANCAP, Lauchlan McIntosh, said: “No one has a 1998 telephone — not a young person or an old person — so why would you have a 1998 car?”. “There are a lot of people who have made a conscious decision to put their kids in a better car, and a lot of older people buy a five-star car — but there are still a lot of young people who, unfortunately, don’t see a five-star car as important but they’ve got the latest telephone.” The ANCAP website ancap.com.au lists the crash safety rating of more than 620 cars built since 2004. The Toyota Corollas used in the crash test were bought privately by ANCAP from car dealers, and the test was conducted this week at Sydney’s CrashLab. The 1998 Corolla was a one-owner vehicle with a good service history that had travelled 130,000km and had never been involved in a crash, so was structurally indicative of a car from that era. The latest model Corolla was an ex rental car that had done 29,000km, indicative of near-new used cars for sale. CAR SAFETY: THEN AND NOW 1998 Toyota Corolla Price when new: $23,000 Price today: $4500 Safety: No driver’s airbag, no antiskid brakes (they were part of a $990 option pack). 2015 Toyota Corolla Priced when new: $23,000 Price today: $16,000 Safety: Seven airbags, electronic stability control, antiskid brakes, rear view camera, force limiting seatbelts, seatbelt pre-tensioners. Automatic emergency braking optional.

2017 Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic
 
03:03
SVR bits and Autobiography glam on a standard wheelbase There’s a new kid in town over at Land Rover, which cherry-picks some of the most choice elements from the Range Rover parts bin. While we’ve seen (and slobbered over) both the Range Rover Sport SVR and Range Rover SVAutobiography, the new 2017 Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic wedges itself between the two in search of a balance between elite-level luxury and performance. or starters, the 2017 Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic rides exclusively on a standard wheelbase rather than the long wheelbase reserved for the SVAutobiography that arrived to market last year. The new Dynamic model does, however, share with its big brother the same 550-hp supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 engine, bristling with 502 lb-ft of torque and paired with a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission. There are also some suspension changes to the Dynamic model intended to inch it closer to full-bore Range Rover Sport SVR territory, such as active anti-sway bars and adaptive dampers. So you won’t forget, SVAutobiography Dynamic comes with red-painted Brembo brake calipers living snugly inside your choice of 21-inch or 22-inch aluminum wheels. Inside, the new tweener Range Rover is essentially a shorter SVAutobiography. Which means it’s a damn fine place to drive just about anywhere on planet earth. You can treat yourself to handsome 20-way adjustable leather seats with diamond-quilt patterns, a litany of color and veneer trim choices for the interior, and dashing touchpoints like a knurled metal rotary knob and start-stop button. When it comes to waking up, jumping into your SUV, and feeling like a badass, Range Rover has it figured out. The SVAutobiphraphy Dynamic also gets a few improvements that will soon spread across the 2017 Range Rover lineup. Chief among these is a standard InControl Touch Pro 10.2-inch infotainment system, which is by no exaggeration a quantum leap compared to the outgoing system. New Range Rovers also come standard with rear park alert, lane departure warning, and autonomous emergency braking, while adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, and traffic sign recognition (plus more) are available as well. For the select few Range Rover drivers who actually use the off-road capability of their vehicles, new technologies like a low-traction launch system and a handy All-Terrain Info Center in the display screen make things a tad easier. Does the 2017 Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic really need to exist? Probably not, but given the success of the long-wheelbase SVAutobiography, it definitely won’t hurt Land Rover’s bottom line. The Dynamic model starts at $171,990 including destination, which is a hefty chunk of change below the $200,490 you’ll need to cough up for its big brother Read More http://www.motortrend.com/news/2017-range-rover-svautobiography-dynamic-joins-rover-stable/ interior New 2016 Test Drive (Sport) "SUBSCRIBE NOW"

2017 Ford Mustang - Crash Test
 
03:34
General comments The Ford Mustang has been reassessed following changes made to the latest version. Cars which can be ordered from July 2017 onwards are equipped as standard with Ford's Pre Collision Assist (with Pedestrian Detection, Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking) and Lane Keeping Aid. Structurally, the new vehicle is identical to the last, so this assessment uses the crash tests performed previously. The restraint system has been updated to prevent the airbag bottoming out for driver and passenger. In addition, the automatic airbag deactivation now meets Euro NCAP's requirements. ADULT OCCUPANT Comments The passenger compartment of the Mustang remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger dummies. Analysis of the dummy data showed that the driver's head had 'bottomed out' the airbag i.e. there was insufficient pressure in the airbag to prevent the head from contacting the steering wheel through the deflated airbag material. The head of the passenger dummy also bottomed out the airbag against the dashboard, owing to insufficient inflation of th airbag and inadequate restraint for larger statures by the front passenger seatbelt load-limiter. Ford have shown improved performance from the airbags fitted to the latest Mustang, with bottoming-out avoided. However, the frontal offset test was not repeated and the scores reflect the performance seen in the original test. In the full-width rigid barrier test, protection of the driver was good apart from the chest, protection of which was adequate. However, the rear seat passenger slipped under the lap portion of the seatbelt (a phenomenon known as 'submarining') and the score for the knee, femur and pelvis body region was penalised and protection was rated as poor. Protection of the chest was also rated as poor as the rear seatbelt (which has neither pre-tensioners nor load-limiters) showed an excessively high tensile force in the test. Dummy readings of head deceleration indicated weak protection of the head for the rear passenger. In the side barrier test, the Mustang scored full points with good protection of all critical body areas. Even in the more severe side pole test, protection of the chest was adequate and that of other body regions was good. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated a marginal level of protection against whiplash injury in the event of a rear-end collision. A geometric assessment of rear seats indicated poor whiplash protection in these seating positions. The latest Mustang has an autonomous emergency braking system as standard. The system performed well in tests of its functionality at the low speeds typical of city driving at which many whiplash accidents occur. However, the system did not qualify for points as the car's passive whiplash protection was inadequate. CHILD OCCUPANT Comments For the impact tests, the 10 year dummy was sat on a booster cushion. Owing to limited rear space the results of the dynamic tests on the 10 year dummy were done in a separate test. In the frontal offset test, protection of the 10 year dummy was rated as at least adequate. However, the shoulder belt slipped between the clavicle and the upper arm and the score for the dummy in this test was penalised. Protection of the 6 year dummy, sat in a high-back booster, was rated as good and adequate for the head and neck respectively but dummy readings of chest deceleration indicated marginal chest protection. In the side barrier test, dummy readings indicated good protection, apart from the head of the 10 year dummy. The head bottomed out the side curtain airbag, making contact, through the deflated airbag material, with the trim on the C pillar. Consequently, all points were lost for the 10 year dummy in this test. The front passenger airbag can be automatically disabled to allow a rearward-facing restraint to be used in that seating position. The information provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag met Euro NCAP's requirements. PEDESTRIAN PROTECTION Comments The Mustang has an 'active' bonnet. Sensors in the bumper detect when a pedestrian has been struck and actuators lift the bonnet, creating more space to the hard structures in the engine bay. Ford demonstrated that the system worked robustly for a variety of pedestrian statures and over a range of speeds and, accordingly, the tests were performed in the raised (deployed) position. Test results were good over almost the entire bonnet surface. Protection of the pelvic region was poor in all areas tested but the bumper provided good protection to pedestrians' legs and scored maximum points in Euro NCAP's tests. The autonomous emergency braking system can detect pedestrians as well as other vehicles and performed well in tests of this functionality.

2017 Audi TT RS - PRODUCTION
 
04:49
2017 Audi TT RS arrives with 400 horsepower If the Audi TT was ever considered to be more style than substance, that stereotype can be put to rest with the arrival of the new TT RS. Revealed in both coupe and convertible bodystyles at the Beijing Motor Show today, Ingolstadt's latest performance models boast 400 horsepower. And for nostalgic VW and Audi fans, this is still the only way to buy a five-cylinder engine. For those keeping track, that represents an increase of 60 hp over the previous version, accompanied by 354 pound-feet of torque. Channeled to all four wheels in typical Quattro style, those 400 horses will propel the TT RS to 62 miles per hour from a standstill in as little as 3.7 seconds. That's enough to undercut the new Porsche 718 Cayman S by a good few tenths, and will leave the vast majority of drivers on the road or track looking at its pair of oval tailpipes, OLED taillights, and fixed rear wing rather than the new front end with its oversized air intakes. Those lucky enough to find themselves inside the new TT RS will find a pair of low-slung bucket seats along with standard TT fare like a 12.3-inch Virtual Cockpit display, Audi Connect infotainment system, and inductive smartphone charging. US pricing and availability are still being worked out, but Audi of America spokesman Mark Dahncke tells Autoblog that the new TT RS will arrive in showrooms Stateside "sometime next year." Overseas the new model is set to launch in the fall. The starting price of €66,400 euros listed for Europe works out to nearly $75k at current exchange rates. More tellingly the TT RS price is just above the €64,118 that Porsche charges for the new 718 Cayman S. This is clearly one bout of sibling rivalry that's just heating up.

2018 Audi A8 - Excellent Sedan!!
 
07:41
2019 Audi A8 Serenity on four wheels. If the unregulated realm of the automated car is the Wild West, Audi could be the next Billy the Kid. Its all-new A8 luxury sedan is positioned to be the first vehicle to offer Level 3 self-driving capability. Like the actual Wild West, the highly autonomous version is filled with the unknown and uncontrollable, but here the threats are regulation and liability, not gunslingers. Accordingly, Audi still won’t say whether the first car with self-driving capability will actually be allowed to drive itself when it goes on sale in the United States in the fall of 2018. Either way, the 2019 A8 poses a genuine threat to Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Cadillac. It is taller, longer, more isolated from the road, yet better controlled than the A8 it replaces. It is a cruise missile for the wealthy; it flattens mountains and straightens freeways with ease. And even absent Traffic Jam Pilot, the official term for the headline self-driving feature, it’s quite likely the most technologically advanced car in the world. Hybrids, Mild and Otherwise At launch, the A8 will be available with one engine, a single-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 good for 340 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. Shortly thereafter, by the end of 2018, a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 with 460 horses will follow. Both powerplants get limited hybrid assistance, thanks to the use of an alternator that doubles as a starter (BAS, for belt-alternator-starter, in Audi lingo), an arrangement that powers a 48-volt electrical system. The alternator/starter is good for 16 horsepower during energy recuperation and 9 horsepower when assisting the gasoline engine. Its purpose, according to Alexander Kruse, the Audi engineer responsible for the development of the BAS system, is to assist the gas engines in achieving their most efficient operating rpm sooner, thus improving fuel economy. The BAS will add torque to the powertrain mix, but its contributions are at the low end—nowhere near the peak output of the engines. Audi’s German planners tell us the W-12 engine will not come to the United States, despite its being offered in previous A8s, but U.S. representatives for the company aren’t yet willing to admit it. We’re not holding our breath. Both the V-6 and V-8 engines are paired with ZF’s paddle-shiftable eight-speed automatic transmission, and Quattro all-wheel drive is standard. EPA estimates aren’t yet available, but it’s safe to say that Audi didn’t make the A8 a hybrid so it could be less efficient than the car it replaces, which yielded a combined 22 mpg when fitted with the supercharged 3.0-liter V-6. For those with mileage at the top of their desires, a plug-in hybrid model offering 449 combined horsepower and equipped with inductive-charging capability will arrive in early 2019. Big Car, Big Importance Like the current A8, the fourth-generation sedan will be available in the United States only in the longer of the car’s two wheelbases, which this time spans 123.1 inches. It’s not yet determined whether the S8 to be spun from this new model will come in the shorter, 118.0-inch wheelbase, following the strategy used on the current A8/S8. Length is up by 1.3 inches and height by 0.7 inch, while width shrinks by 0.1 inch. As executive sedans go, the A8 is sized to compete with the other German megacruisers. Its wheelbase is 1.5 inches shorter than the Mercedes-Benz S-class and 3.3 inches shorter than BMW’s 7-series. It’s a segment built around the rear seat, and all three cars offer ample space to let riders’ Testonis breathe. We drove the A8 in southern Spain over mountainous terrain lined with glass-smooth, ribbonesque two-lanes that lacked both shoulders and mercy. Our time behind the wheel came in relatively benign A8s equipped with the V-6 and lacking some of the machine’s most compelling features. We weren’t able to try Traffic Jam Pilot during this specific experience, but we had already driven a car equipped with it and found the system, while capable of relieving traffic-induced stress, was quite limited in scope.

2017 Volvo S90 Sedan Excellence (China-built) - interior Exterior and Drive
 
03:35
Volvo Cars unveils new version of the S90 sedan and top-of-the-line S90 Excellence in Shanghai, marking a new era for car-making in China Volvo Cars, the premium carmaker, has unveiled a new upgraded China version of its S90 sedan and a top-of-the-line luxury model called S90 Excellence, both aimed at the high-end sedan market, in advance of their first public appearance at the 2016 Guangzhou Motor Show. The new S90 will be the most premium car ever made in China. Both versions will be built in Volvo Cars’ production facility in Daqing, China, and exported globally, highlighting the high levels of quality that underpin Volvo’s global manufacturing strategy. “China will play an increasingly important part in our global manufacturing ambitions. Our factories here will deliver world-class products for export across the globe in coming years, contributing to our objective of selling up to 800,000 cars a year by 2020,” said Håkan Samuelsson, President and CEO, Volvo Car Group. Volvo has paved the way in developing China’s exports of cars to global markets. It was the first Western car maker to export a premium China-made car to the US in 2015 with the S60 Inscription, which received a full 5-Star rating in National Highway Traffic Safety Administration testing. Premium credentials Both the S90 cars underscore Volvo’s credentials as a premium car maker. “The first thing you notice in the S90 Excellence is that we have removed the front passenger seat and replaced it with what we call the Lounge Console, designed to meet the chauffeur-driven executive customers’ need to relax or work while on the move. The second thing you will notice is the high quality materials that combine to deliver a well-thought-through and immersive luxury feel,” said Thomas Ingenlath, Senior Vice President Design at Volvo Car Group. The S90 Excellence incorporates many features designed to enhance the in-car experience – a full panoramic roof, foldout worktables, clever storage, a heated and cooled cup holder, an adjustable footrest and a built-in entertainment system featuring a large display for work or entertainment purposes. The S90 Excellence also includes a rear-seat touchscreen control interface, a built-in refrigeration compartment and handmade crystal glasses from Swedish glassmaker Orrefors. The S90 will be available with Volvo Cars’ award-winning T4 and T5 petrol engines and the top-of-the-line T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid, delivering an uncompromising mix of performance and pure electric power that makes the most of Volvo’s ‘Relaxed Confidence’ chassis settings. The S90 Excellence will only come with the T8 Twin Engine powertrain option. The new cars will come with a host of standard safety features including Large Animal Detection as a part of the City Safety system, Pilot Assist, which is a hands-on-the-wheel semi-autonomous driver assistance system that works up to 130 km/h. Volvo’s new 90 Series cars also come with the convenience of smartphone integration, incorporating Apple CarPlay and Android Auto allowing convenient access to familiar smartphone features via the large centre display in the car. Both cars will be available with a new CleanZone air quality system that employs an ionic air cleaner, a PM 2.5 real-time monitor in the four-zone air conditioning system. The new S90 goes into production in November. The S90 Excellence follows next year.

2018 Volvo XC40 - Crash Test
 
01:52
2018 Volvo XC40 Crash Test Reveals It’s One Safe Small SUV If there’s an automaker worthy of being synonymous with safety, that would be Volvo. Through Swedish inventor Nils Bohlin, the Gothenburg-based company introduced the 3-point safety belt as standard safety equipment in 1959, opening up the patent for any other automaker. Fast-forward more than six decades after that industry-changing and live-saving moment, and the all-new XC40 boasts “award-winning safety” in the compact crossover segment. The Euro NCAP and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety have yet to put the newcomer through its paces. Knowing that it takes time until these organizations get their hands on the XC40 for the purpose of assessing its crash test performance, Volvo took to itself to prove how good the XC40 is. During development, the compact-sized utility vehicle was assessed at the Volvo Safety Center in the automaker’s home city. There’s video to prove the small crossover’s proficiency at protecting occupants in the event of a crash. In the side impact test, the newest Volvo of them all holds its own at 50 km/h (31 mph), with the seat-mounted side and curtain airbags doing their job well. Even when it comes to the rear occupants, the crash test dummy appears to get out of the violent ordeal with nothing more than a scare. Being developed for hip people living life in the big city, the XC40 bristles with urban traffic-oriented safety and driver assist features. Pilot Assist, City Safety, Cross Traffic Alert with Brake Support, 360° camera system that aids with parking, Run-off Road protection and mitigation, there’s a lot of clever tech in there. For this reason and the fact that it’s generously equipped from the get-go, the cheapest 2018 Volvo XC40 currently on sale starts at $35,200 in the United States. The T5 AWD Momentum is the culprit, and for its size, the 2.0-liter Drive-E turbocharged inline-4 is more than adequate thanks to 248 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The T5 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid is on its way, as are lesser powertrain options and an electric take on the XC40.

Compact proportions, short overhangs and precise lines emphasise the agile and sporty nature of the concept car. In its interior, the ŠKODA VISION X boasts innovative infotainment technology. A special highlight: the ŠKODA VISION X’s particularly sustainable drive concept combines a CNG‑and petrol-powered engine with an electric motor, providing spontaneous power delivery and increased agility, and allowing low CO2 emissions of less than 90 grams per kilometre. “Emotive design, modern drive technology and full connectivity: with the ŠKODA VISION X concept study we are presenting our vision of a modern urban crossover,” said ŠKODA CEO Bernhard Maier, adding, “The exterior design provides a concrete view of the third member of the successful SUV family. With this model we will attract even more customers to the ŠKODA brand going forward.” The ŠKODA VISION X can be identified as an SUV from the long-established Czech brand at first glance. With the new urban crossover, ŠKODA AUTO is taking the next systematic step in its SUV strategy. The ŠKODA VISION X embodies agility, versatility and driving pleasure both in urban traffic and when venturing off road. With its compact exterior and interior dimensions as well as advanced infotainment features, the design study orients itself perfectly towards the modern lifestyle of active target groups. Outdoor excursions and leisure sport activities are the environment in which the robust and compact urban crossover demonstrates its strengths. The concept car provides an insight into a future model that, following the successful launches of the ŠKODA KODIAQ and ŠKODA KAROQ, will continue the brand’s SUV campaign and round off the smaller end of ŠKODA’s SUV family as an urban crossover variant. The ŠKODA VISION X’s drive system, which is designed for sustainability as well as agility, is shaped by future-oriented technology. A newly configured hybrid system allows spontaneous power delivery and low emission values. For the first time, a highly efficient and particularly low-emission combustion engine has been combined with a belt-driven starter generator and an electric motor on the rear axle, which can power the vehicle by itself over short distances and, furthermore, takes on a supportive boost function when pulling away. Whether on or off the road, power can be delivered to the front axle, rear axle or, if necessary, to all four wheels. In everyday traffic, the ŠKODA VISION X’s advanced hybrid system returns a combined CO2 emissions value of 89 grams per kilometre when driven in an EU test cycle (NEDC). The concept study’s 1.5-litre G-TEC combustion engine with four cylinders and turbocharger has been specially developed for use with CNG (compressed natural gas). As well as conventionally extracted natural gas, CNG can also take the form of biogas or, with the help of green energy, synthetically produced natural gas. CNG vehicles running on conventional natural gas already emit between around 18 and 25 per cent less CO2 than a petrol-powered model with a comparable power output. The proportion of nitrogen oxide, particulate matter and other emissions is also considerably lower than those of petrol or diesel engines. By adding biogas, CO2 emissions can be reduced further. When running on 100 per cent biogas or synthetic natural gas, CNG vehicles are CO2 neutral.

2018 Mercedes X-Class - Crash Test
 
02:57
ADULT OCCUPANT Comments The passenger compartment of the X-Class remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings showed good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. Mercedes-Benz demonstrated that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. In the full-width rigid barrier test, protection of the driver and rear passenger was good or adequate for all critical parts of the body. In the side barrier impact, protection of all critical body areas was good. Even in the more severe side pole test, protection of the chest was adequate and that of other parts of the body was good. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash protection in the event of a rear-end collision. However, a geometric assessment of the rear seats indicated poor whiplash protection. The standard-fit autonomous emergency braking system scored maximum points in tests of its functionality at the low speeds, typical of city driving, at which many whiplash injuries are caused. CHILD OCCUPANT Comments In the frontal offset test, protection of the chest of the 6 year dummy was rated as marginal, based on chest decelerations. Otherwise, protection of the 6 and 10 year dummies was good or adequate. In the side barrier test, protection of both child dummies was good for all critical parts of the body. The X-Class has a system that automatically disables the front passenger airbag when a rearward-facing child restraint is used in that seating position. Mercedes-Benz showed that the system worked robustly and it was rewarded. The restraint used to assess Group I ISOFIX restraints required a multi-stage installation procedure. Otherwise, restraints could be properly installed and accommodated in the vehicle. PEDESTRIAN PROTECTION Comments The protection provided by the bonnet to the head of a struck pedestrian was predominantly adequate or marginal. Protection of pedestrians' legs was good or adequate. The pedestrian-detecting autonomous emergency braking system performed well in Euro NCAP's tests, with collisions avoided or mitigated at most test speeds. SAFETY ASSIST Comments The X-Class has a standard seatbelt reminder system for the front and rear seats. The speed assistance system identifies the local speed limit and provides this information to the driver who can then set the limiter accordingly. A lane assistance system warns the driver when the vehicle is drifting out of lane. The autonomous emergency braking system performed well at highway speeds, with collisions avoidedor mitigated in all test scenarios. interior New 2017 "SUBSCRIBE NOW"

RAM Rebel TRX Concept 575hp - Offroad Monster!!!
 
08:44
Ram Reveals New Rebel TRX Concept – 100-mph Off-road Pickup Rips With 575 Supercharged Horsepower Ram Rebel TRX concept is an engineering, design and consumer-interest study for an extreme performance half-ton pickup Supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® V-8 delivers 575 horsepower, the most powerful factory-engineered half-ton pickup ever TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission is integrated with a powerful supercharged engine, 4x4 Performance Control System and paddle-shifters Front and rear axles feature severe-duty components to handle the high horsepower and off-road rigors More than 13 inches of wheel travel at all four corners, an increase of more than 40 percent Front and rear bypass performance shocks added for improved response and damping Unique RAM front grille and steel bumpers share design cues with Power Wagon and Rebel, and provide additional air flow to cool the 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V-8 engine Reaching six inches wider than a standard Ram 1500, the acute hour-glass body design and huge fender wells clear aggressive 37-inch tires Rebel TRX concept interior takes signals from the Ram Rebel, but adds unique features, materials and colors, including carbon fiber, luxury leather/suede and six-point harnesses Powertrain The rapidly beating heart of the Ram Rebel TRX concept is a powertrain marvel. A 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI with 575 horsepower, the most powerful Ram 1500 the company has ever built, lays the groundwork of expectation. Mated to the TorqueFlite 8HP70 eight-speed automatic transmission, new calibrations were used for the engine, transmission and drivetrain to optimize the expected high-speed off-road driving cycle. The Ram Rebel TRX concept uses Ram’s 4x4 Performance Control System with a BorgWarner 44-45 transfer case. The system employs different modes of operation: Normal, Wet/Snow, Off-road and Baja. The Ram Rebel TRX concept uses a standard Ram 1500 front axle with an open differential and custom CV half-shafts to handle the wider track dimension. The spindles are moved forward to make room within the fender wells for the aggressive 37-inch tires. In the rear, a Dynatrac Pro 60 axle spools power through an electric, selectable locker to 35-spline, 1.5-inch axle shafts. The locker is available in all modes and commits both rear wheels to traction at the same speed, spreads the torque load and maximizes the tractive effort (power put to the ground) in full-throttle maneuvers. Engineering The Ram Rebel TRX has an exterior design that radiates focused aggression, which is only trumped by what lies under its skin. The concept was built around suspension and frame prerequisites. Equally important was adapting as many systems from the standard Ram 1500 as possible to ensure durability and proper function. The high-strength steel frame structure of the Ram Rebel TRX is virtually unchanged when compared to a standard Ram 1500. The frame uses low-torsion attributes that increase durability, stability and handling precision. A 40 percent increase in suspension travel and 37-inch tires contribute to incredible ground clearance. This combination allows the TRX concept to overcome surface obstacles at high speed. The front suspension incorporates custom-built upper and lower A-arms with special attention to caster and camber angles during suspension cycling. Overall, front- and rear-wheel travel is increased to more than 13 inches from the standard 9 inches. The front load is managed by a state-of-the-art, adjustable, performance coil-over shock with internal bypass. The result is a smooth ride over smaller bumps, and when the bumps become mounds, the reaction speed and heat dissipation is unbeatable, softening the impact on occupants and maintaining the tire-to-ground contact. The Ram 1500 uses an exclusive, best-in-class link coil rear suspension system that shares basic architecture with the fastest off-road trucks in desert racing. The frame’s hard points for the five-link suspension system are unchanged and allow the rear axle travel to span up to 13 inches, while standard rear-wheel travel on the Ram 1500 is 9.25 inches. New 2.5-inch bypass shocks use factory upper and lower shock mounts. The standard rear coils are swapped for performance springs located in the factory-spec positions. To provide incredible stopping power, the factory hydraulic-boost compensation unit enhances brake pedal feel and performance during emergency stop events. Baer brakes six-piston monoblock calipers mounted to 15-inch rotors equip the front. The rear uses six-piston calipers with 14-inch rotors. High-speed off-road truck racing teams commonly use a 37-inch tire for its height and durability. Tires with 37 inches of height, 13.5 inches of width, aggressive treads and 10-ply design are assigned the task for Rebel TRX.

NEW Nissan NP300 Navara EnGuard Concept
 
02:35
Nissan Navara EnGuard Concept is ultimate rescue truck Nissan reveals Navara-based emergency rescue concept car at Hannover Motor Show, with portable EV battery power Pick-ups are all about versatility, but Nissan is looking to save lives rather than lug loads with a new Nissan Navara concept. The' EnGuard' emergency rescue concept is has debuted at this year's Hannover Motor Show. Based on a standard double-cab Navara, the EnGuard concept is designed to showcase both the pick-up's all-terrain ability and a new life-saving vehicle platform. With a ride height boosted by 50mm, wider tracks front and rear, adjustable suspension, bespoke bodywork and 285-profile off-road tyres, it's designed to drive across the harshest terrain. An air intake snorkel even lets it wade through deep rivers. But it's not just about mud plugging, as the Navara EnGuard also features a kitted-out loadbay to make it an all-purpose rescue machine. Two pull-out fibreglass trays carry items such as a resuscitation kit, oxygen tanks, life jackets and even a axe. There's a state-of-the-art DJI Phantom rescue drone fitted in as well, which can fly about and relay images to a rescue team. Dominating the load bed are a pair of heavy duty battery packs. The 2kW units feature seven battery modules (straight out of the Nissan Leaf EV) inside a weather-proof aluminium housing. They're designed to act as more efficient generators, operating heavy lifting or specialist cutting equipment, or powering search lights and heat sources. The roof is 136mm higher than a standard Navara, accomodating a 360-degree lighting rig with emergency strobe lights. While the concept is designed purely to showcase new technology, Nissan LCV Vice President Phillippe Guerin-Boutard claims it could have real-world uses in future. "The Navara EnGuard Concept opens a new chapter in the Nissan Intelligent Mobility vision, featuring our commitment to zero fatalities and zero emissions. Our prototype EV portable battery pack reveals how Nissan will integrate its world-renowned EV battery technology and expertise into new sectors in the future.” Read More http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/nissan/navara/97148/nissan-navara-enguard-concept-is-ultimate-rescue-truck "interior New 2016 2017 Test Drive Review" "SUBSCRIBE NOW"

2018 Range Rover Velar Review
 
10:27
Official: it's the new Range Rover Velar The new, mid-sized Rangey is here and we have many, many pictures What you’re looking at, according to Land Rover, isn’t just a car – it’s a digital butler. No, really. When it goes on sale this summer, Land Rover says its brand-new Velar SUV is packed full of tech that will “create an in-built technology butler”, thanks to “an all-new, cutting edge infotainment system.” Land Rover’s Peter Virk, who has a very long job title, says the system “learns from you and anticipates your needs, serving what you want, when you want it – but never intrudes… like any good butler.” According to Land Rover, the Velar plugs the gap between the Evoque and the Range Rover Sport. And before you ask “what gap?”, there is actually a niche there. The Sport is a willfully massive thing once you get it onto tight urban streets, and shaving about 50mm off the length and width will make for a much more city-friendly SUV. Powering the Velar is your choice of five engines. Most sensible is a 178bhp 2.0-litre, four-cylinder diesel, which is good for 0-60mph in 8.4secs, a top speed of 130mph and more than 52mpg. There’s a higher-spec 2.0-litre diesel with 237bhp, a 6.8sec 0-60mph time, a 135mph top speed and slightly poorer economy, at 49mpg. The 3.0-litre diesel V6 takes another step towards grunt over greenness, with 296bhp, 0-60 in 6.1secs, a top speed of 150mph and about 44mpg. If you’re a petrol fan, there’s a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbo with 247bhp, a 296bhp tune following further down the line. But what you really want is the supercharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol, with 375bhp. It’ll knock off a 0-60 dash in 5.3secs, hit 155mph and burn through dino juice at a rate of about 30mpg. If you spring for either of the V6-powered models, you’ll also get air suspension as standard. But fear not, entry-level buyers – adaptive dampers are standard across the range. The spec levels, for you badge-spotters out there, run from the standard Velar, through the usual S, SE and HSE specs, with a sportier appearance if you go for an R-Dynamic kit. Prices start at £44,830, but get excited and pick the R-Dynamic HSE V6 and you’ll be paying more than £72,000. According to Land Rover, the Velar is built from sustainable materials, following an all-new design. On that note, if a mineralogist could tell us how sustainable aluminium is, that’d be grand, because the Velar uses quite a bit of it. In reality, the sustainable material that Land Rover’s talking about is inside the cabin – a special textile takes the place of leather on the seats. Now, it wouldn’t be a Range Rover unless it could scale the surface of Mars with a Labrador in the boot. To that end, Land Rover has kitted the Velar out with a full suite of off-road gubbins, provided that you tick the options box accordingly. Normally, it’d make sense to rail against the lack of standard kit, but if you’re not going to take your Velar to Monument Valley, what use do you have for a locking rear diff and terrain response control? Regardless of how much you choose from the options list, you’ll get autonomous emergency braking, traffic warnings and a gizmo that detects if you’re about to have forty winks behind the wheel. Handy. Now to the styling. There’s an old Latin saying that, roughly translated, says, “In matters of taste, there should be no dispute.” So we’ll leave you to make up your own mind on the rakish styling direction that design boss Gerry McGovern has chosen. Instead, we can tell you that, with a drag coefficient of 0.32, it’s the slipperiest Land Rover product ever. And, if you wanted to have a look at the Velar’s design yourself (and you’re in the London area) you’re in luck – it’s on display in the Design Museum in Kensington until March 5th. There’s actually a little bit of history behind a Land Rover product sitting in a museum – the original Range Rover was displayed in the Louvre in the 1970s, and it was a pretty decent bit of kit. And here’s where the Velar name comes in, actually – ‘Velar’ was the name originally given to the very first Range Rover prototypes that Land Rover built back in 1969. So, does it tickle your fancy? If so, best find about £85k (try your other pair of jeans) and get in touch with Land Rover rather soon – there’s a special ‘First Edition’, powered by V6 engines only and with much leather, 1600W of Meridian stereo and something called ‘Matrix-Laser’ LED headlights as standard. As well as that digital butler… Read More http://www.topgear.com/car-news/geneva-motor-show/official-its-new-range-rover-velar interior New 2017 Test Drive features "SUBSCRIBE NOW"

2017 BMW 5 Series Vs 2016 Audi A6 - Crash Test
 
02:11
2016 Audi A6 40 mph small overlap IIHS crash test Overall evaluation: Good 2017 BMW 5 series 40 mph small overlap IIHS crash test Overall evaluation: Good With improved crash protection, BMW 5 series earns top IIHS award ARLINGTON, Va. — The redesigned BMW 5 series offers good protection in a small overlap front crash, in contrast to the previous generation of the large luxury car, which didn't hold up well during the small overlap test. The 2017 5 series qualifies for the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s Top Safety Pick+ award, thanks to across-the-board good crashworthiness, an optional front crash prevention system with a superior rating, and available good-rated headlights. In the small overlap test of the 2017 model, the driver space was maintained well, with maximum intrusion of 5 inches at the footrest. The airbags and safety belt worked well together to control the dummy's movement, and measures taken from the dummy indicated a low risk of any significant injuries in a real-world crash of the same severity. In contrast, when the earlier model was tested, maximum intrusion reached 12 inches at the footrest, and the steering column was pushed back 3 inches toward the driver. Measures taken from the dummy indicated that injuries to the left lower leg would be likely in a real-world crash, with possible injuries to the left foot as well. In order to earn the 2017 Top Safety Pick+ award, a vehicle must have good ratings in the small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests, as well as an available front crash prevention system with an advanced or superior rating and headlights that earn an acceptable or good rating. The 2017 5 series has two different optional front crash prevention systems, both earning a superior rating. In IIHS track tests, cars equipped with each system avoided collisions at 12 mph and 25 mph. The 5 series also has two different headlight systems available. The headlights that come with the optional lighting or premium package earn a good rating, while the standard ones are rated marginal. .... Audi A6 earns 2015 Top Safety Pick+ following modifications ARLINGTON, Va. — Stellar performance in the small overlap front test earns the 2016 Audi A6 a Top Safety Pick+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The large luxury car, which already had good ratings in the Institute's other crashworthiness tests and an advanced rating for its optional front crash prevention system, was modified to improve small overlap protection. The good small overlap rating applies to A6s built after January. In the small overlap test, the driver's space was maintained well, with maximum intrusion of 4 inches at the foot rest. The dummy's movement was well-controlled. The head hit the front airbag and stayed there until rebound, and the side curtain airbag deployed with sufficient coverage to protect the head from contact with side structure and outside objects. Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity. Introduced in 2012, the small overlap test replicates what happens when the front corner of a vehicle collides with another vehicle or an object such as a tree or a utility pole. Vehicles that earn a good or acceptable rating for small overlap protection and good ratings in the moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint evaluations qualify for Top Safety Pick. To qualify for Top Safety Pick+, vehicles must also have an available front crash prevention system that earns an advanced or superior rating. In track tests of the A6's optional front crash prevention system, the automatic braking function reduced the vehicle's speed by an average of 10 mph in the Institute's lower-speed test. In the higher-speed test, it reduced impact speed by only 1 mph, not enough to earn credit. The system does get credit in the Institute's ratings for a warning component that meets the government's criteria for forward collision warning. "interior New 2018" "SUBSCRIBE NOW"

2019 Lucid Air - Revolution Car!! 1000 hp - 217 mph
 
08:28
Introducing the Lucid Air. Combining forward-looking design with groundbreaking technology, Lucid has established an entirely new class of vehicle. Learn more at lucidmotors.com Clear the Air – The $52,500 Lucid Air With the event now completed, we realize that there are aspects of the company and the Lucid Air that could use further clarification. We also realize that additional questions will arise periodically, requiring our timely response. To address these questions, we are creating a new blog series we call Clear the Air, the first edition of which I am using to elaborate further upon the pricing and features of the Lucid Air. The car that we have been showing publicly represents a well-optioned Lucid Air, leading to confusion regarding the price range. Much of the speculation suggests that the starting price of the car will be over $100,000, which is not accurate. The Lucid Air will have a base price of $52,500, after the federal tax credit available to buyers of battery electric vehicles is subtracted. The base model car will be well appointed and enjoyable to drive. It will provide superior comfort, a better user interface, and better performance than comparably priced BMWs and Mercedes-Benzes. Is it vaporware? An electric 200-mph Tucker? Our crystal balls aren’t clear enough to say for sure, but right there in the Javits Center Crystal Palace concourse sat not one but two Lucid Air prototypes. One looking all auto show prepped—sleek, luxurious, and beautifully appointed—the other all full of bugs and roll cage tubing, fresh from a top-speed stability test on the 7.5-mile oval test track at Ohio’s Transportation Research Center where it reportedly hit its electronically governed top speed of 217 mph (350 km/h). Features of the base Lucid Air include: 240-mile range 400 horsepower (rear-wheel drive) All hardware necessary for autonomous driving Huge interior space in an efficient package Two trunks, one in the front and one in the rear, with a combined storage capacity of over 32 cubic feet (similar to the volume of a 4-person hot tub) 12-way power front seats LED multi-lens array headlights Four screens, with interactive-touch surfaces on three 5-seat configuration with a rear bench seat 10 advanced airbags Aluminum roof 19-inch wheels 10-speaker audio system Over-the-air software updates Options Above the base model, there will be a number of available options, as demonstrated by the alpha show car, which will allow the Lucid Air to compete with the best of the large luxury cars. We don’t yet have all of the options and packages ready to announce, but we can give you a sense of what options will be available: 315-mile and 400-mile-range battery options Up to 1,000-horsepower twin-motor configuration, with all-wheel drive Fully active suspension, delivering a world-class ride Glass-canopy roof Rear executive seats that recline up to 55 degrees 22-way power front seats with heating, ventilation, dynamic bolsters, and massage 21-inch Lucid-design wheels 29-speaker audio system with active noise cancellation Expanded leather trim with corresponding material upgrades A fully loaded Lucid Air will have higher performance, greater comfort, and better efficiency than the current high-end market benchmarks. This unique set of attributes will allow the Lucid Air to compete with the best in the world, across multiple automotive classes. The price of a fully loaded Air will be above $100,000, but we are not yet able to provide specific top-of-the-line pricing. The Launch Edition We have also received many questions related to the pricing and features for the 255 Launch Edition cars that will be the first customer cars off of the production line. These cars will be very well optioned as standard and will be priced over $100,000. Expect a 315-mile range, 1,000 horsepower, autonomous driving hardware, 21-inch wheels, and an upgraded audio system for starters. Some features, such as the rear executive seats, cannot yet be confirmed for early production. The Launch Edition cars will also have unique colors and badging, signifying their special nature. Additional details will be announced closer to the start of production. We hope this post has provided additional insight into the pricing and optional feature strategy for the Lucid Air. We intend to have a car that is competitive in features and price with mid-level luxury vehicles and can also be configured to compete with the best cars in the world across classes.

2018 Volkswagen Arteon - Driver Assistance Systems
 
06:24
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) 00:00 Emergency Assist 01:44 Proactive Occupant Protection System 03:15 Review New generation of assistance systems The Arteon's innovative driver assistance systems match its avant-garde concept. Significantly updated new generation versions of seven of these systems are available on the new gran turismo: Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Active Lighting System, Emergency Assist, proactive occupant protection system, Side Assist lane change system including Lane Assist lane departure warning, Rear Traffic Alert, and traffic sign recognition (which now also warns when speed limits are exceeded). Additional technologies adapted from other Volkswagens include the park distance warning, park assist steering, Rear View reversing camera system and Area View surround view camera. A detailed look at key assistance systems: Active Lighting System The gran turismo comes with LED headlights for the dipped and main beams as standard. The Arteon Elegance and Arteon R-Line also feature Light Assist automatic main beam control (camera-based system which automatically activates and deactivates the main beam in response to oncoming traffic). These two models can be optionally equipped with the Active Lighting System. The LED dual headlights perfectly illuminate the upcoming bend before the vehicle is even steered into it. Here's how it works: the Active Lighting System - a technology package - utilises LED dual headlights with so-called projector lenses and incorporates among other features Dynamic Light Assist, the dynamically regulated permanent main beam function (interactive permanent main beam as an extended function of Light Assist) and dynamic cornering lights with predictive beam control. The latter steers the headlights into bends according to steering angle by means of variably controlled headlight modules. New with this feature is the ability to do this independently of steering angle and even predictively, using video information from the front camera and route information from the navigation system. In this manner, the gran turismo is able to illuminate the upcoming bend in the road before the driver steers into it. What's more, the light pattern of the headlights is optimally adjusted to suit the radius of the curve, because light is not wasted illuminating the roadside. Side Assist plus Lane Assist and Rear Traffic Alert The Arteon comes with the Lane Assist lane departure warning system as standard. If the gran turismo is ordered with the optional Side Assist lane change system, which is activated from 10 km/h, the two systems are combined. In this case, Rear Traffic Alert will also be on board. The Side Assist package can help prevent serious accidents, particularly in the following two situations. First, on the motorway, because it detects both fast overtaking vehicles and slower ones in the blind spot, warns the driver and even countersteers via Lane Assist. The second situation relates to reversing out of a parking space: the sensors detect vehicles approaching from the side that are not visible to the driver. Traffic Jam Assist Volkswagen developed Traffic Jam Assist based on Lane Assist (lane departure warning system) and ACC. It is available for models with a dual clutch gearbox (DSG). The system makes traffic jams and stop-and-go driving much more comfortable. The interplay between assistance systems enables the new car to drive semi-autonomously at speeds up to 60 km/h. The basis for this system is Lane Assist and its functionality of adaptive lane guidance. The second assistance system integrated into Traffic Jam Assist is ACC, which performs automatic acceleration and braking. "2017 Test Drive CC" "SUBSCRIBE NOW"

2018 Audi A8 - INTERIOR
 
08:21
Luxury lounge: the interior Freedom is the defining design feature with a new luxury slant. This explains the A8’s resemblance to a lavish, spacious lounge. Compared to the predecessor model, it has grown substantially in length in both body versions. The range of equipment and materials is extensive, with every detail radiating superlative bespoke quality – from the perforation in the seat upholstery to the electrically opened and closed shutters on the air vents. The classiest seat in the new Audi flagship model is in the rear right – the optional relaxation seat in the A8 L that comes with four different adjustment options and a footrest. In this seat, the passenger can warm and massage the soles of their feet on a unit with multiple settings incorporated into the back of the front-passenger seat. The new comfort head restraints complete the experience. The rear passengers can also control an array of functions such as ambient lighting, the new HD Matrix reading lights and seat massage, plus make private phone calls, via a separate operating unit. The rear seat remote, with its OLED display as large as a smartphone, is a removable unit housed in the center armrest. Fingertip response: the controls The luxury sedan’s interior deliberately adopts a reductive design; the interior architecture is clear and with a strictly horizontal orientation. Audi carries its high quality standards into the digital age with a radically new operating concept. It does away with the familiar rotary pushbutton and touchpad of the predecessor model. The instrument panel is kept largely clear of buttons and switches. At its center is a 10.1-inch touchscreen display which, when off, blends almost invisibly into the high-gloss black surround thanks to its black-panel look. The user interface appears as soon as the car is opened. The driver controls the Infotainment system with fingertip control on the large display. They can use a second touchscreen display on the center tunnel console to access the air conditioning and comfort functions as well as make text inputs. When the driver activates a function in the upper or lower display, they hear and feel a click by way of confirmation. The glass-look operating buttons respond in the same way. The combination of acoustic and tactile feedback along with the use of common touch gestures such as swiping make the new MMI touch response especially safe, intuitive and quick to use. The A8 can also engage in intelligent conversation. The driver can activate an array of functions in the automobile using a new, natural form of voice control. Information on destinations and media is either available on board or is delivered from the cloud at LTE speed. The extensive Audi connect range also includes traffic sign recognition and hazard information – innovative car-to-X services that draw on the swarm intelligence of the Audi fleet. The extensively optimized navigation is another new feature: It is self-learning, based on the route just driven. This provides the driver with intelligent search suggestions. The map also incorporates highly detailed 3D models of major European cities. interior Features Floating image: the head-up display Top technology: the MMI navigation plus Car-to-X: traffic sign information and hazard information An array of other services: Audi connect Central access point: the new myAudi app Groundbreaking: navigation with lots of new features Digital access to the car: the Audi connect key 400 custom functions: personalization Virtual click: the MMI touch response operating system High hit rate: keyword search with hybrid concept Full HD: the Audi virtual cockpit Floating image: the head-up display A short action: the electric door lock Full sensory experience: the new luxury slant Indulgent comfort: the seats First-class travel: the relaxation seat Compact-format operating convenience: the rear seat remote As you choose: new phone solutions Clean, fresh air on board: the air quality package Exclusive top engine: the W12 The W12 will follow in 2018 in the new A8 L as the supreme, highly refined top engine version.

Like the 4.0 TFSI, the twelve-cylinder engine features COD (cylinder on demand) technology. At low loads and engine speeds, it shuts down the left-hand cylinder bank to trim fuel consumption. The new Audi A8 and A8 L are being built at the Neckarsulm site and will appear on the German market in late fall 2017. The starting price for the A8 is EUR 90,600, with the A8 L starting at EUR 94,100.

The limited-production, world record-setting 2018 Demon and the last 2017 Dodge Viper hand-built American supercar will be auctioned as a pair in “The Ultimate Last Chance” end-of-an-era offer with 100 percent of the hammer proceeds from the sale going to the United Way.

2018 Hyundai Azera - interior Exterior and Drive
 
07:19
The 2018 Hyundai Azera looks pretty classy With the reveal of the new Azera, Hyundai has made it clear that it has no plans to leave the large, upscale sedan market. This South Korean Avalon-fighter underwent a significant redesign inside and out and will first go on sale in Korea next month. Outside, the Azera has a significantly different and more formal, profile. While the previous model was rakish and wedgy, the new model adopts an upright version of Hyundai's new corporate grille, along with a long hood and more vertical windshield. The flanks also receive long, flowing character lines that give it a muscular appearance. At the back, the Azera gets a new version of the full width taillights that the model has had since the nameplate's introduction two generations ago. The Azera also changes radically inside. Instead of the downward flowing dash of the old model, the new interior features an instrument panel that emphasizes width, with a dark top portion and lighter lower section. Sandwiched between the two halves of the dash is a section that rises up at the center stack to house the large touch screen and an analog clock, which looks a bit out of place. Hyundai has yet to reveal any stats, pricing or availability for the new Azera, except for its aforementioned launch date in South Korea, where it will carry the Grandeur name. However, we would imagine more details will be coming soon ahead of its US launch.

2017 Mercedes E-Class - intelligent Drive
 
03:21
2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class To Feature Drive Pilot Autonomous Driving Suite In a story on mercedes-benz.com, Mercedes-Benz revealed today that the 2017 E-Class will have an autonomous driving feature called Drive Pilot that will make it the most advanced autonomous driving vehicle in the brand's portfolio. The story follows Michael Kelz, chief engineer for the E-Class, CLS-Class and GLC-Class, as he drives from Las Vegas to Los Angeles in an E-Class prototype. It says that Drive Pilot allows the car to drive almost completely by itself. The driver can take his/her hands off the wheel, and the car will take full control of the braking, accelerating, and steering. The car will flash an indication that the driver should take back the wheel every so often, but the driver must then only swipe one of the two touch controls on the steering wheel to allow the car to continue to drive by itself. Mercedes models equipped with the current autonomous driving suite, Intelligent Drive, require that the driver take back the wheel after 10 seconds. It sounds like Drive Pilot will allow the driver to have his/her hands off the wheel for longer intervals. In fact, the story says that if it weren't currently illegal to do so, the driver could use the time with his/her hands off the wheel to catch up on emails. In the future it will be possible to adapt the driver assistance system to the local regulations. Various anecdotes in the story highlight different capabilities of Drive Pilot. For instance, it will give the car the ability to complete an autonomous passing maneuver, including performing the steering and acceleration. The driver will only have to tap an indicator. The car will also park itself remotely. In other words, the driver won't have to be in the car to allow the car to park itself. In the city, the E-Class will brake for pedestrians or crossing traffic, and an Evasive Steering Assist feature will help avoid a collision once the driver begins the steering input. There is no more explanation of how it works, but we can hazard a guess. Like brake assist applies full braking power when the driver begins to hit the brakes when an imminent collision is detected, once the driver begins steering, Evasive Steering Assist will move the steering wheel, possibly using the car's radar and cameras to find the safest direction to go while avoiding the accident. Finally, the next E-Class will offer car-to-X communication, allowing it to inform other cars of danger spots, accidents, and traffic backups. This will be enabled by a central Daimler server, and only other Mercedes models will be able to tap into it initially. However, other vehicles with the capability will be brought on board over time. The story offers two other tidbits about the 2017 E-Class. First, it will offer multi-beam LED headlamps, and second it will be up to 154 pounds lighter than the outgoing car. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class will be unveiled on January 11 at the Detroit Auto Show. Check out our dedicated hub for more information on it and other announcements.

2018 Range Rover Velar - interior Exterior and Drive
 
06:47
2018 Range Rover Velar: Mid-Size Modernity Filling the tiny space between the Evoque and the Sport. Anglophile SUV enthusiasts take note: Range Rover has just unveiled a new mid-size entry, the Velar, filling a tiny gap that the parent company sees in its luxury-label lineup between the Evoque and the Range Rover Sport. The company already fields the Land Rover–branded Discovery and Discovery Sport in roughly this same segment (to say nothing of the corporate cousin, the Jaguar F-Pace), but whereas the Disco models are ostensibly focused on the active, rough-terrain-lifestyle and family portions of the market, the Velar’s Range Rover label leans more to the gentry end of the spectrum, emphasizing elegance, sophistication, on-road performance, and ride quality. Internationally Known The Velar’s bloodline is unmistakable. A floating roof, an unbroken waistline, and rounded corners culminate in a tidy rear featuring nearly vertical cutlines from the roof to the bumper. Careful review permits us to be reasonably sure the Velar is one and the same as the camouflaged Range Rover Sport Coupe spy shots that have been circulating for some time. The rakish sliding panoramic glass roof is standard across the Velar line. So maybe it’s not as radical a departure into the depths of SUV coupledom as, say, the BMW X4 and the Mercedes-Benz GLC coupe; we respect Land Rover for resisting the urge to go full “coupe” on the Velar. Created from a clean-sheet design based on JLR’s lightweight aluminum architecture, which also underpins the F-Pace, the Velar’s construction consists of approximately 80 percent aluminum, the balance being primarily composed of magnesium and steel. With a wheelbase of 113.2 inches and a 189.0-inch overall length, it’s approximately two inches shorter than the Range Rover Sport in both dimensions and roughly 17 inches longer than the Evoque. The LED headlamps are reportedly the smallest units fitted to a Land Rover product yet, and their sleek design teams with flush door handles to help the Velar earn a coefficient of drag of just 0.32, making it the most aerodynamically efficient Land Rover yet. Range Rover says the interior design is the product of “reductionism,” which is meant to offer an uncluttered environment. “Hidden until lit” controls—they illuminate with a touch—add to the calming effect of the interior. That said, the materials are similar in weight and quality to those of pricier Rovers, with a singular exception: Besides the usual selection of supple hides, the Velar will offer optional seat upholstery woven from sustainable resources. Developed with the assistance of European textile manufacturer Kvadrat, the material will be offered initially in a Dapple Grey color paired with synthetic suede inserts of Ebony or Light Oyster. Designers told C/D that they see an emerging trend of upscale consumers preferring sustainable materials to traditional animal hides. They initially expect approximately one in 20 buyers will choose the option at a small premium. Additionally, the Velar also will serve as the host vehicle for the introduction of the brand’s Touch Pro Duo infotainment system. A long overdue technology upgrade, the setup features two 10-inch high-definition touchscreens promising improved functionality, shorter reaction times, and (fingers crossed) fewer glitches. Tri-Power The Velar offers a trio of engine choices including with a 247-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter gas inline-four from the Ingenium engine family and a supercharged 380-hp 3.0-liter V-6. There’s also a 180-hp diesel 2.0-liter Ingenium four. A ZF eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are standard across the board. Land Rover is claiming a 5.3-second zero-to-60-mph run for the Velar when equipped with the V-6 gasoline engine. Top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph.

The Ram Laramie Longhorn is the world’s benchmark for upscale pickup trucks, earning the title Luxury Pickup Truck of Texas from the Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA) two years in a row. “The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn is a no-compromise luxury truck that delivers what buyers want most: strength, durability, technology and efficiency,” said Mike Manley, head of Ram brand. “Wherever you look, whatever you touch, the Laramie Longhorn is filled with more craftsman-like details, including wood surfaces and 100 percent full-grain leather seats, than any other truck in the segment.” Layered with premium materials, the Laramie Longhorn carries iconic features and design cues from traditionally handcrafted, time-tested wares such as the antique pocket watch, hand-tooled leather cowboy boots or a horseman’s saddle. The Ram Laramie Longhorn’s wood, metal and leather elements are all authentic.

Other unique details include satin chrome accents, a brushed-nickel metal badge flush-mounted on the console lid and a new “Longhorn” branding mark burned on the wood-trimmed upper glove box door. Real barn-wood accents are used throughout the cabin. Wood tandem doors on the center console reflect the heightened attention to detail and provide closed storage. At night, the cabin is accentuated with ambient lighting to create a luxurious and soothing atmosphere. Longhorn interior colors include Mountain Brown/Light Mountain Brown and Black/Cattle Tan full-leather seats with contrast piping. Heated, full-leather rear seats and class-exclusive rear seat ventilation are available on Longhorn. A chrome billet “RAM” grille and chrome header surround the premium LED lamps with Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS). Chrome bumpers, tow hooks and side steps come standard as do wheel flares. Two-tone color options complement the RV Match Walnut Brown paint. New 20- or 22-inch wheels are offered with a variety of complementary finishes. The Laramie Longhorn Edition belt-buckle badge appears on the front doors and tailgate. Ram's new 1500 is the benchmark for technology and connectivity in pickups offering 4G WiFi hot spot, exclusive SiriusXM 360L personalized listening experience, SiriusXM Guardian, five USB ports to link with the award-winning Uconnect system and a segment-leading 12-inch touchscreen featuring split-screen capability for dual-application operation or full-screen single application operation. The new 2019 Ram 1500 offers truck buyers leading-edge innovation with 225 pounds of weight reduction, up to 12,750 pounds of towing capability, the eTorque mild hybrid system and active systems that improve fuel efficiency and assist drivers. The Ram 1500 stands out as the benchmark in a very competitive segment. Music Source: NCM Epic Music Ender Guney interior New 2018 2017 Test Drive Features Review "SUBSCRIBE NOW"

2017 Audi Q5 - PRODUCTION
 
07:59
San José Chiapa, Mexico - CAR FACTORY Audi is further expanding its worldwide production network and thus continuing along its path of global growth. This Friday, the Audi Board of Management opened the company’s first automobile plant on the North American continent. Starting now, the brand with the Four Rings will produce the new generation of the Audi Q5* for the world market in San José Chiapa in Mexico’s federal state of Puebla. The plant has an annual production capacity of approximately 150,000 premium SUVs. By the end of the year, a total of 4,200 jobs will be created locally at Audi México. AUDI AG is the first premium automobile manufacturer with product facilities in Mexico. “The plant in Mexico is a milestone in the history of our company and an important step in our internationalization. It is one of the most modern factories on the American continent. With this facility, we have established an important site for the export of our automobiles to customers all over the world,” stated Prof. Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Board of Management of AUDI AG. The country has twelve free-trade agreements with more than 50 countries and therefore offers ideal economic conditions. Mexico is a powerhouse for automobiles and automotive components. Together with his Board of Management colleagues Prof. Dr. Hubert Waltl (Production and Logistics and also Chairman of the Board of Audi México), Prof. h.c. Thomas Sigi (Human Resources) and Dr. Bernd Martens (Procurement), as well as the Governor of the State of Puebla Rafael Moreno Valle, and Mayor of San José Chiapa Josué Martínez Santos, Stadler gave the signal for the official start of production of the new Audi Q5. “For us, this plant is more than a financial investment of over one billion euros. Above all, it is a commitment to the site and to the people who, together with us, have managed this great achievement,” continued Stadler. “Our plant in Mexico is a prime example of the Audi Smart Factory. The facility is the first that we have put into operation completely virtually, that is, in a computer simulation,” stated Audi’s Board of Management Member for Production Waltl. We have optimized the entire process chain and put the plant into operation 30 percent faster than is usual.” That was a record in the automobile industry. Audi has applied state-of-the-art technology in the factory planning. The plant first took shape in great detail in virtual space, where factory planners from various sites were able to work on the plant structure simultaneously. As a result, Audi was able to set up a complete car plant with a press shop, body shop, paint shop and assembly line on an area of 400 hectares (988acres) in the record time of just three and a half years. Ultramodern plant equipment and highly efficient logistics allow an annual production volume of 150,000 Audi Q5 vehicles. Thanks to various water treatment methods and the application of new technologies in the paint shop, the plant will be free of wastewater. New equipment will significantly reduce water, gas and electricity consumption and facilitate resource-efficient production. A supplier park has been established immediately adjacent to the park. Seven suppliers and logistics providers have started operations there in time for the start of production of the Audi Q5. The JIS park (just in sequence) guarantees short distances from the suppliers’ buildings to the assembly line and allows punctual delivery of components for the premium SUV. At the start of production, Audi is sourcing more than 70 percent of the parts from the NAFTA region and plans to increase this proportion of localization over the long term. In total, more than 100 companies already supply parts for the Audi Q5 from sites in Mexico. In line with its social responsibility, the company also supports the people in the region. Audi México has so far taken more than 3,300 local employees on board. Audi prepares its employees for their future tasks with tailored training courses at a new training center. Approximately 5,300 training courses have already been carried out. In addition, Audi has provided advance training at its sites in Germany to more than 750 Mexican employees, who were assisted by experienced mentors. Audi México offers diverse entry possibilities to young talented people, such as the system of dual training with approximately 80 apprenticeships each year, the internship program, the EMA scholarship program (Estudiantes Mexicanos en Alemania) and the new Programa de Especialistas, a qualifications program for career starters and job applicants with initial career experience. interior New 2016 2018 line Plant manufacturing car factory "SUBSCRIBE NOW"

2019 Porsche Mission E-Cross Turismo - interior Exterior and Drive
 
06:39
Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo: the electric athlete for an active lifestyle With the Mission E Cross Turismo, Porsche will be unveiling the concept study of an electrically driven Cross Utility Vehicle (CUV) at the Geneva Motor Show. This car has many talents and is aimed at people who like to spend their free time travelling, playing sport and pursuing other outdoor activities. Thanks to all-wheel drive, every ski slope is easy to reach, while the flexible interior creates space for all kinds of sports equipment and modern load-carrying systems facilitate the transport of surfboards or a Porsche e-bike. The strengths of the four-door four-seater include an emotional design with striking off-road elements as well as an innovative display and operating concept with touchscreen and eye-tracking control. Measuring 4.95 metres in length, the concept vehicle has all-wheel drive and an 800-volt architecture, prepared for connection to the fast charging network. It can also be charged by induction, at a charging station or using the Porsche home energy storage system. The road-ready Mission E Cross Turismo builds on the Mission E study Porsche demonstrated at the 2015 International Motor Show (IAA) and uses elements that are close to series production. -The design: unmistakable Porsche DNA A low-cut bonnet between heavily curved wings: the front of the Mission E Cross Turismo reveals its relationship to the sports car icon Porsche 911 at first glance. Vertical air inlets in the front, known as air curtains, are a distinctive design feature. Another stylistic highlight are the matrix LED headlights. The brand’s typical four-point daytime running lights have evolved into narrow, three-dimensional glass elements. Embedded in four sweeping wings, these also contain an innovative four-point indicator light. At the same time, the vehicle has high-performance full beams with Porsche X-Sight technology. The off-road design elements include robust wheel arch protection and door sills, a striking front spoiler and lower rear and increased ground clearance. The silhouette is defined by a sporty roofline that slopes off to the rear, which Porsche designers refer to as a ‘flyline’. This is reminiscent of the rear of the Panamera Sport Turismo. Equally distinctive for the brand is the dynamic shape of the side windows. The broad wings and three-dimensional side panels with air outlets behind the front wheels reinforce the sporty crossover character of the concept car, which is 1.99 metres wide. Other distinctive features include the eye-catching side door sills with their off-road appearance and 20-inch wheels with 275/40 R 20 tyres. Even from behind, the study can immediately be recognised as a Porsche with its exclusively light grey metallic paintwork. In addition to its sporty design and air-channelling roof spoiler, the continuous light strip is a typical feature. The luminescent white Porsche logo is composed of glass letters embedded in a three-dimensional cover with a circuit board design. During charging, the ‘E’ in the Porsche logo pulsates, and the circuit board is brought to life by pulses of light. This makes the flow of energy impressively visual for the customer. A large panoramic glass roof extending from the windscreen to the boot lid ensures a generous sense of space. -Variability: equipped for all mobility needs The Mission E Cross Turismo presents a picture as to what a Turismo model with features of a crossover utility vehicle could look in series production – a car that is equally suitable for travelling, everyday life and adventure, filling the role of a versatile companion both in the city and in the countryside. The crossover model is aimed at people who like to spend their free time playing sport or pursuing other outdoor activities. Passengers stand to benefit from the flexible nature of the four-seater, which measures 1.42 metres in height. For example, the backrest of each individual seat in the rear has a load-through facility. This can be used for skis and other long equipment. The backrests themselves can be folded down. Additionally, the boot features a rail system with adjustable and removable straps. These can be used to secure items quickly and safely. To give the passengers of the Mission E Cross Turismo various mobility options beyond the car, the Porsche e-bike supports its rider with a powerful electric drive when the pedals are turned. It is a mobility offer that does mean Porsche customers do not have to go without the design, technology and performance of a Porsche when they are on two wheels in their free time.

2017 Porsche Panamera Executive - Rear Seat Entertainment INTERIOR
 
04:02
Debut of the Panamera Executive models, as well as the Panamera and Panamera 4 Stuttgart. Porsche is continuing to expand the model range of the new Panamera: At the Los Angeles Auto Show, the sportscar manufacturer will be presenting the luxury saloon with a new 243 kW (330 hp) V6 turbo petrol engine, along with an extended Executive version as yet another body option. The new V6 turbo is a highly efficient and agile entry-level addition to the impressive range of engines. Power is up by 20 hp from the corresponding engine of the previous Panamera generation. At the same time, Porsche was able to reduce the consumption of this completely redeveloped six-cylinder petrol engine by up to 1.0 l/100 km. The new 330-hp engine is combined with rear-wheel drive in the Panamera and all-wheel drive in the Panamera 4, plus a long wheelbase in the Panamera 4 Executive. While the Panamera and Panamera 4 with 330 hp redefine what can be expected at the entry-level end, the Executive models of the big Porsche, with their 150 millimetre longer wheelbase, expand the body and equipment portfolio at the top end of the model line. Designed as a chauffeur saloon, this Porsche is available in the all-wheel drive versions Panamera 4 Executive (243 kW / 330 hp), Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Executive (340 kW / 462 hp), Panamera 4S Executive (324 kW / 440 hp) and Panamera Turbo Executive (404 kW / 550 hp). The new Porsche Panamera Executive versions are equipped even more exclusively. The standard features are supplemented with a large panoramic roof, heated comfort seats with multi-way electrical adjustment in the front and rear and adaptive air suspension with an electronically controlled damper system (Porsche Active Suspension Management / PASM). The roll-up sunblind behind the headrests in the rear also comes as standard. The standard equipment of the Panamera 4S Executive and Panamera Turbo Executive is even more comprehensive: Among other things, both models benefit from rear-axle steering and soft-close doors. As the most powerful model, the Panamera Turbo Executive is equipped with standard features such as four-zone climate control, LED main headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) and ambient lighting. As an option, all Porsche Panamera Executive models are available with a newly developed, large rear centre console, which can also be equipped with two integrated folding tables and an inductive antenna connection for an additional smartphone, depending on the market. Similarly to the existing Panamera models, the exterior of the Executive versions can be further individualised with a Sport design package. Another useful equipment option, particularly for the Executive versions frequently used as chauffeur saloons in China and the USA, is the latest generation of Porsche Rear Seat Entertainment. The 10.1-inch displays integrated in the backrests of the front seats can be detached for a wide range of uses; when needed, they transform the rear of the Panamera into a fully digitalised workplace. The high-quality displays can also be used as tablets outside the vehicle. With regard to the model line, the fully redeveloped second generation of the Panamera was introduced in the summer of 2016. The four all-wheel drive models Panamera 4S, Panamera 4S Diesel (310 kW / 422 hp), Panamera 4 E-Hybrid and Panamera Turbo are already available on the market. With the addition of the new 330 hp versions and the Executive models, the Porsche Panamera range now comprises ten different models with power outputs from 330 to 550 hp. interior New 2016 2017 Test Drive "SUBSCRIBE NOW"

This is the third time Ford has offered a Bullitt-branded special edition, following previous versions in the 2001 and in the 2008­–2009 model years. Modeled after the 1968 Ford Mustang 390 GT fastback driven by McQueen’s character, Frank Bullitt, the 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt edition builds on the content of the Mustang GT Premium with the Performance package and includes upgrades such as Brembo six-piston front brakes, a Torsen limited-slip differential, a larger rear anti-roll bar, and a bigger radiator to keep the Bullitt’s 5.0-liter V-8 engine cool during extended chases. It needs more cooling because the Bullitt turns the heat up on the burly bent-eight’s performance courtesy of an intake manifold cribbed from the Shelby GT350, 87-millimeter throttle bodies, and a recalibrated powertrain control module. These changes result in a total of 475 horsepower, or 15 more than the run-of-the-mill Mustang GT, and help the Bullitt achieve a top speed of 163 mph—8 mph more than the Mustang GT. Torque holds steady at 420 lb-ft, and a six-speed manual is the sole transmission offered. To better channel the spirit of the original movie car, the 2019 Mustang Bullitt has been stripped of almost all exterior badging. A single trunk-mounted badge marks the model’s connection to the film and mimics the design of a fuel-filler cap. Additionally, Ford sprinkles the Bullitt with chrome around its badgeless grille and around its window line. Red brake calipers and 19-inch wheels complete the car’s look. Two paint colors will be available: Highland Green, like the original movie car, and Shadow Black. Inside, the Bullitt includes model-specific cues such as green accent stitching throughout its leather-lined interior, a white cue-ball-style shift lever, and a special “welcome” graphic within the car’s 12.0-inch digital gauge cluster. Options are few but include an available adaptive suspension, Recaro seats, and an electronics package that adds navigation, memory seating, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. Ford has not yet released pricing information for the 2019 Mustang Bullitt. Expect it to cost a few thousand dollars more than the $43,990 price of the 2018 Ford Mustang GT Premium with the GT Performance package. The Bullitt edition goes on sale at midyear.

2016 Chevy Malibu Vs 2017 Ford Fusion - Crash Tests
 
02:11
2016 Chevy Malibu The Chevrolet Malibu was redesigned for the 2016 model year. Structure The driver space was maintained well, with maximum intrusion of the lower interior of 11 cm at the footrest and parking brake pedal. Upper interior intrusion measured 6-8 cm at the upper hinge pillar and instrument panel. Injury measures Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity. Restraints and dummy kinematics The dummy’s face remained in contact with the frontal airbag, but its head still rolled around the left side, leaving the head vulnerable to contact with forward structure. The side curtain airbag deployed and has sufficient forward coverage to protect the head from contact with side structure and outside objects.

Daimler Mercedes Truck Highway Pilot Connect - Test Drive
 
06:55
Daimler demonstrates autonomous truck platooning; Highway Pilot Connect delivers ~7% lower fuel consumption Daimler Trucks demonstrated the new Highway Pilot Connect system for autonomous truck platooning on the A52 autobahn near Düsseldorf. Three WiFi-connected, autonomously driving trucks operated on the autobahn with authorization for public traffic in a platoon formation. Such a combination can reduce fuel consumption by up to 7% and the road space requirement on motorways by almost half, while improving traffic safety at the same time, Daimler said. Based on the Daimler Trucks Highway Pilot system for autonomously driving heavy trucks (earlier post), the three trucks link up to form an aerodynamically optimized, fully automated platoon. Connected vehicles in a platoon require a distance of only 15 meters instead of 50 meters between them. This considerably smaller distance produces a significant reduction in aerodynamic drag—comparable to slipstream riding in cycling competitions. In this way a platoon of three trucks can achieve the ~7% fuel saving, resulting in fuel consumption figures of around 25 l/100 km (9.4 mpg) possible for a loaded semitrailer combination with a gross weight of 40 t. This corresponds to a consumption of only 0.66 l/100 km (356 mpg) per tonne, or CO2 emissions of 13.3 g per kilometer per tonne. In parallel with this, platooning allows much more efficient use of the road space: thanks to the shorter distance between vehicles, a platoon of three linked trucks has a length of only 80 meters. In contrast to this, three trucks which are not electronically docked require a total of 150 meters of road space. At the same time platooning makes road traffic much safer: while a human behind the wheel has a reaction time of 1.4 seconds, Highway Pilot Connect transmits braking signals to the vehicles behind in less than 0.1 seconds. This considerably reduced reaction time can make a major contribution towards reducing rear-end collisions such as occur e.g. when encountering traffic jams on motorways. The smart, self-optimizing truck has the highest priority for us. Using connected communication between the truck and other vehicles and the surroundings, we can improve traffic flow and lower fuel consumption and emissions. At the same time intelligent trucks help to lower the number of traffic accidents. This is an important step on our way towards accident-free driving. —Sven Ennerst, Head of Truck Product Engineering & Global Procurement The basis of Highway Pilot Connect is networking between vehicles and precise awareness of the surroundings. Highway Pilot Connect is a further development of the well-tried Highway Pilot system by Daimler Trucks. This system allows trucks to drive semi-autonomously, and has been under test since October 2015, in a standard Mercedes-Benz Actros operating on public roads in Germany. The Highway Pilot was first presented in July 2014, in the Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025 study, followed by the very first public road authorization for an autonomously driving truck in May 2015, for the Freightliner Inspiration Truck (earlier post). Compared to the Highway Pilot, Highway Pilot Connect has the additional technical function for electronic vehicle docking. Communication between vehicles is made possible by an onboard telematics platform. A specific V2V (vehicle-to-vehicle) communication module using a special WiFi standard reserved exclusively for automotive enables direct data transfer between the trucks. Highway Pilot Connect uses this for a constant exchange of information with other trucks and the environment. Because of their technology, all the members of such a platoon continue to be autonomously driving trucks. They are able to maintain their direction independently of the vehicle ahead, and thanks to their combination of linear and lateral guidance, they can react to unexpected situations at any time. This also applies if other vehicles cut into or leave the platoon’s space. In this case the vehicle can smoothly disengage from the platoon and continue alone in autonomous mode. The driver does not need to intervene. Docking three or more vehicles together becomes particularly interesting in countries with a corresponding infrastructure. In the USA or Australia, for example, trucks cover long distances without bridges and exit roads on highways crossing the entire continent. Daimler Trucks is participating in the European Truck Platoon Challenge 2016 (EU TPC)—an initiative of the Netherlands during their ongoing EU presidency—with its three Mercedes-Benz Actros Highway Pilot Connect trucks. interior New 2016 2017 Test Drive "SUBSCRIBE NOW"
