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"

2017 BMW 5 Series - Crash Test
 
03:33
ADULT OCCUPANT Comments The passenger compartment of the 5 Series remained stable in the offset frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. BMW demonstrated that, for the passenger's side, a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. On the driver's side, incorrect deployment of the knee airbag in the full-width test led to penalties for this body region in both frontal impact tests. In the full-width frontal test, the knee airbag didnot deploy quickly enough to get between the right knee and the dashboard. Although dummy readings for both legs were good, protection of the knee/femur/pelvis region was penalised. BMW stated that the airbag deployment seen in Euro NCAP's test was anomalous and had not been observed in their development tests. Protection of the neck of the driver and the chest of the rear passenger was rated as marginal. In the side barrier test, maximum points were scord, with good protection of all critical body regions. Even in the more severe side pole test, protection was good, apart from the chest, protection of which was adequate. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision. A geometric assess ment of the rear seats indicated good protection there too. The 5 Series has, as standard, and autonomous emergency braking system which operates at the low speeds, typical of city driving, at which m any whiplash injuries are caused. The system scored maximum points in Euro NCAP's tests, with complete avoidance of collision at all test speeds. CHILD OCCUPANT Comments In the frontal offset test, protection of both the both dummies was good or adequate except for the chest of the 6 year dummy which was rated as marginal based on chest decelerations. 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 5 Series is designed could be properly installed and accom modated in the car. PEDESTRIAN PROTECTION Comments The 5 Series has an 'active' bonnet. Sensors detect when a pedestrian has been struck and actuators lift the bonnet, providing greater clearance between its top surface and hard structures in the engine bay. BMW demonstrated that the system worked for a variety of pedestrian statures and over a range of speeds so tests were conducted with the bonnet in the raised position. Good or adequate protection was provided at all over the entire bonnet surface. The bumper also provided good protection and scored maximum points intests of its protection of pedestrians' legs. However, protection of the pelvis area was poor at all test locations. The autonomous braking system is able to detect pedestrians as well other vehicles and performed well in Euro NCAP's tests of this functionality, with collisions being avoided or mitigated at most test speeds TEST RESULTS Comment The standard-fit autonomous emergency braking system showed good performance in tests of its functionality at highway speeds. Collision was avoided in almost all circumstances and mitigated in others. A driver-set speed assistance system allows the driver to limit the maximum speed of the vehicle as appropriate, and a seatbelt reminder is provided for all seating positions. interior New 2016 2017 Test Drive "SUBSCRIBE NOW"

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. A seatbelt reminder is standard equipment for the front and rear seats, as is a driver-set speed limiter and lane-departure warning system. interior New 2017 "SUBSCRIBE NOW"

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

2019 BMW X5 - CRASH TEST!
 
02:48
ADULT OCCUPANT Comments The passenger compartment of the X5 remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. However, the driver knee airbag was found not to have deployed correctly. The score for this body area was penalised and BMW were not allowed to demonstrate that structures in the dashboard did not present a risk of injury to occupants of different sizes and to those sitting in different positions. Accordingly, protection of the driver's knee, femur and pelvis body region was rated as weak. On the passenger side, there is no knee airbag and protection was rated as good. In the full-width rigid barrier test, protection of all critical body areas was at least adequate for both the driver and the rear passenger. In the side barrier test, maximum points were scored, with good protection of all critical body areas. In the more severe side pole impact, dummy readings of chest compression indicated marginal compression for this body region, with other parts of the body being well protected. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision. A geometric assessment of the rear seats also indicated good whiplash protection. 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. CHILD OCCUPANT Comments In the frontal offset and side barrier tests, protection of the 6 and 10 year dummies was good or adequate for all critical body areas. 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 X5 is designed could be properly installed and accommodated in the car except for one Group I child-seat in the optional third row seats, where the head restraint did not allow the restraint back to be properly reclined into its locking position. VULNERABLE ROAD USERS Comments The X5 has an 'active' bonnet. Sensors in the bumper detect when a pedestrian has been struck and actuators lift the bonnet, providing greater clearance to hard structures in the engine compartment. BMW showed that the system detected a variety of pedestrian statures over a wide range of speeds. Accordingly, the car was tested with the bonnet in the raised position. The protection provided by the bonnet to the head of a struck pedestrian was good or adequate over almost the entire surface. The bumper provided good or adequate protection to pedestrians' legs at all test locations. However, protection of the pelvis was poor. The AEB system is able to detect vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists. In most tests of these functionalities, the system performed well, with collisions avoided or their severity mitigated, even at night-time in the case of pedestrians. SAFETY ASSIST Comments The X5 has a seatbelt reminder system for the front and rear seats. The AEB system performed well or adequately in various tests of its functionality at highway speeds. A standard-fit lane-keep assist system helps to keep the car from drifting out of lane. The speed assistance system uses a camera and digital mapping to determine the local speed limit and the driver, allowing the driver to set the speed limiter appropriately. #BMWX5 #CrashTest #BMW "SUBSCRIBE NOW"

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.

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.

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. VW 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 impact, protection was adequate for the chest of rear passenger but, otherwise, was good for all other critical body areas of the driver and rear passenger. In the side barrier test, good protection was provided to all critical body regions and the Arteon scored maximum points. In the more severe side pole impact, protection of the chest was rated as adequate and that of other body regions was good. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision. A geometric assessment of the rear seats indicated good whiplash protection there also. Tests of the Arteon's autonomous emergency braking system showed good performance at low speeds typical of city driving, with accidents avoided at all test speeds. CHILD OCCUPANT Comments In the frontal offset test, protection of the 10 year dummy was rated as good or marginal. For the 6 year dummy, protection of the chest was rated as marginal and the of other critical areas as good or adequate. In the side barrier test, protection of both dummies was 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 regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded. All of the restraint types for which the Arteon is designed could be properly installed and accommodated in the car. PEDESTRIAN PROTECTION Comments The Arteon has an 'active' bonnet. Sensors in the bumper detect when a pedestrian has been struck and actuators lift the bonnet, providing greater clearance to hard structures in the engine compartment. VW showed that the system operated robustly for a variety of pedestrian statures and over a wide range of speed so the car was tested with the bonnet in the deployed, raised condition. Protection was good or adequate over virtually the entire surface of the bonnet. The bumper provided good protection the legs of struck pedestrians and protection of the pelvis area was also good. The autonomous emergency braking system can detect pedestrians as well as other vehicles and performed well in Euro NCAP's tests of this functionality. SAFETY ASSIST Comments Tests of the autonomous emergency braking system at highway speeds showed good performance, with accidents avoided or mitigated in all test scenarios. The car has a driver-set speed limitation system and lane departure warning. A seatbelt reminder is standard for the front and rear seats. "New 2018 Driver Assistance Systems" "SUBSCRIBE NOW"

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.

2017 Toyota C-HR - Crash Test
 
03:35
Comments - ADULT OCCUPANT The passenger compartment of the C-HR remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. 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 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.

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"

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 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.

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 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"

2019 BMW X5 - PRODUCTION
 
05:45
Homecoming: BMW Plant Spartanburg making final preparations to begin production of all-new BMW X5. Nearly 20 years of market leadership and the heart of the BMW lineup. Fourth-generation BMW X5 nears production start at Spartanburg, the global center of competence for BMW X family. The BMW X5 accounts for more than half of the 4.4 million vehicles produced at Spartanburg since plant opened in 1994. As Americans enjoy the holiday week and prepare for their summer adventures, preparations of a different kind are nearing completion at BMW Plant Spartanburg in South Carolina: the final phases of gearing up for production of the all-new BMW X5, which begins later this summer. Four generations of leadership. As the fourth generation of BMW X5, the all-new model joins a proud lineage and history of leadership. When it was introduced nearly 20 years ago, the original BMW X5 launched not only the BMW X model family, but launched the Sport Activity Vehicle (SAV) segment for the industry. Since then, the BMW X5 has firmly established itself as one of the pillars of the BMW model line, selling more than 2.2 million examples world-wide across the first three model generations. In the US, the BMW X5 has ranked in the top three best-selling BMW models every year since 2001. This tremendous success has come with several expansions of BMW Plant Spartanburg – now the largest BMW plant in the world. From South Carolina, BMW X models for the US and the world. The all-new BMW X5 will be the tenth X model to be produced at Plant Spartanburg since it began operations in 1994. As the BMW global center of competence for X models, Plant Spartanburg has already been busy in 2018; the all-new BMW X5 was preceded by the launch of the all-new BMW X4 in April. Plant Spartanburg also builds the BMW X3 and X6. With these all-new models and tremendous demand for BMW X models around the world, production in Spartanburg will further grow in the next years and is planned to ramp-up to fully utilize the yearly capacity of 450,000 units. BMW’s manufacturing plant in South Carolina is the single largest exporter of automobiles by value in the United States. Since the introduction of the original BMW X5, two of every three vehicles produced were exported for sale to customers outside the US. When considering the Spartanburg-built X3, X4, X5, and X6 together, more than 70 percent of the annual production is shipped to export markets. Plant Spartanburg. The size of the workforce has also grown substantially at Plant Spartanburg, from an initial 500 people in 1994 to more than 10,000 people today – with another 1000 expected to join by 2021. A 2017 study by the University of South Carolina finds that for every 10 jobs that are directly generated at a U.S. BMW facility, an additional 90 jobs are created elsewhere in the U.S. economy as a direct result of these BMW jobs. BMW U.S. purchasing of parts and materials for production at our U.S. plant totaled nearly $6 Billion (USD) in 2017 from more than 300 U.S. supplier companies. Training at the plant employs a dual apprenticeship training system that combines classroom learning with practical experience. In the past ten years, the BMW Group has invested more than 220 million US dollars in vocational and continued training at its Spartanburg facility, with another 200 million US dollars planned over the next five years. The training programs are run in cooperation with local colleges. What they said then: historical quotes. “The success of the X5 is directly attributable to the designers of the vehicle, our parts suppliers and the many dedicated and hard working associates who continue to come together and create such a special vehicle.” – Mr. Josef Kerscher, then-President of BMW Manufacturing, June 8, 2010 “This is a day of great pride for all South Carolinians and the BMW family. It is a testament to the quality of the SC workforce, the supply chain, and to BMW, one of the greatest automobile manufacturers in the world. Now, one million X5s later, BMW is one of the great business success stories in the history of South Carolina. This milestone gives us hope for the future and is a positive sign that through world-class manufacturing our state will prosper will in the years ahead.” – US Senator Lindsey Graham, June 8, 2010 “We created the X5 to give customers the best of both worlds. With the X5, BMW has given birth to a new category, the Sports Activity Vehicle. The X5 combines legendary BMW performance, styling, luxury and technology with the roominess and versatility of a traditional SUV. Above all, the X5 is nimble and quick, a joy to drive. A true BMW.” - Tom Purves, then-BMW USA Chairman and CEO, September 23, 1999 "interior Manufacturing, Assembly line Plant" "SUBSCRIBE NOW"

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.

2017 Volvo XC90 Excellence - INTERIOR
 
02:34
2017 Volvo XC90 Gets Four-Seat Excellence Option It turns out the four-seat XC90 Excellence Volvo rolled out at last year’s Shanghai Auto Show wasn’t only developed for China’s chauffeur-driven class as the vehicle is being made available here in the United States for the 2017 model year. Billed as Volvo’s most luxurious car in its 89-year history, the XC90 Excellence features four seats split over two rows as well as a host of amenities not normally found in this class. For example, the broad rear seats can recline and they also come with massage and ventilation functions. Also found at the back are retractable control touchscreens, folding tables, a refrigerator with bottle and glass holders, a heating/cooling cup holder, and handmade crystal glasses from leading Swedish glass design company Orrefors. There is also additional sound insulation as well as an enhanced Bowers & Wilkins sound system. The sole powertrain offered with the XC90 Excellence is the range-topping T8 Twin Engine. The plug-in hybrid setup relies on an internal combustion engine to power the front wheels and an electric motor to power the rear pair. This arrangement creates a ‘through-the-road’ hybrid all-wheel-drive system. Either powertrain source can power the vehicle on its own but together they deliver as much as 400 horsepower. The XC90 Excellence will be available this summer. Pricing hasn’t been mentioned but we’d expect a hefty increase on the $72,595 (including destination) starting price of the XC90 T8 Twin Engine with Inscription trim, currently the most expensive XC90 model. All 2017 XC90s also get the latest version of Volvo’s Pilot Assist semi-autonomous feature. It allows the vehicle to operate autonomously on highways with clear road markings at speeds of up to 80 mph and without a lead vehicle to track. The feature is also standard on the 2017 S90 and V90 models. Volvo’s City Safety collision avoidance system has also been updated with a feature that can automatically steer when it detects the vehicle is about to run off the road. Finally, it’s worth mentioning that the 2017 XC90, as well as the 2017 S90 and V90 models, sees the Sensus infotainment system receive several new native apps including Spotify and Park and Pay. Other apps are said to include Connected Service Booking as well as improved versions of TuneIn, Local Search and Yelp.

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.

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 Lamborghini Terzo Millennio - Self-Healing!!
 
04:06
Lamborghini Unveils a Self-Healing, Electric Supercar The Terzo Millennio concept is what can happen when MIT gets in the car game. The next generation of Lamborghinis could act as their own super-powered batteries and be able to repair themselves. Automobili Lamborghini Spa unveiled its Terzo Millennio (“third millennium”) concept car at the EmTech conference in Cambridge, Mass., on Monday. The car is the product of the first 12 months of a three-year partnership between the automaker and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. True to Lamborghini tradition, the car has a lean, windswept design and the brand’s trademark Y taillights. The windshield seems to extend from the top of the car almost to the driver’s toes, and the body crouches so low it almost looks like an outgrowth of the road. But the most remarkable aspects of the car are invisible—not least because they don’t exist yet. Lamborghini plans to develop supercapacitors that can provide the fast, intense energy needed to power a supercar—and could allow for all-electric models. The lithium-ion batteries in today’s electric cars release energy more slowly and run down over repeated charges because they depend on chemical reactions. While supercapacitors store energy physically and don’t generate the heat of lithium-ions, as of yet they don’t offer as much power. The technology is currently used in hybrid vehicles for such limited functions as getting stopped engines going again. “A lot of the innovation that came and made its way into consumer cars started with things like Formula 1 and supercars,” says Mircea Dinca, an associate professor of chemistry at MIT, whose lab is one of two working with the car maker. “I think that if Lamborghini—and we—deliver on this promise, it will be really cool for the future of all transportation.” Lamborghini also intends to make the supercapacitors out of carbon-fiber panels that can be used to form the body of the car, so the Terzo Millennio draws energy from its own body. In other words: The car itself is the battery. Moreover, the concept promises a car that will be able to continuously monitor the condition of its own structure, detecting wear and damage. Micro-channels containing “healing chemistries” in the carbon-fiber body will automatically repair small cracks that would otherwise spread. To top—or, more accurately, bottom—it all off, the company will develop in-wheel electric motors, which would eliminate the need for a single large engine. “Collaborating with MIT for our R&D department is an exceptional opportunity to do what Lamborghini has always been very good at—rewriting the rules on super sports cars,” says Stefano Domenicali, chairman and chief executive officer of Automobili Lamborghini. Lamborghini got its start in the 1960s in Sant'Agata Bolognese, Italy, when Ferruccio Lamborghini, a tractor maker who had become a wealthy industrialist, decided he wanted to top Ferrari. Today it is part of Volkswagen AG, and its cars start at around $200,000. There is neither price guidance nor a timeline on the Terzo Millennio; a production model won’t be available for years, if ever. Still, affordability isn’t a concept we can see Lamborghini exploring.

Lincoln Navigator Concept - INTERIOR
 
03:45
A New Navigator Concept Is Most Spacious, Luxurious Lincoln SUV Yet, Bringing Quiet Luxury to More Customers Lincoln today reveals the all-new Navigator Concept, introducing quiet luxury to full-size SUVs and offering a glimpse at what comes next for the brand’s best-known nameplate. "The all-new Navigator Concept reinforces our commitment to give every Lincoln client what we call quiet luxury – vehicles and experiences that are elegant, effortlessly powerful and serene," said Kumar Galhotra, president of Lincoln. "This kind of quiet luxury sets Lincoln apart. Now, we're showing fans of large SUVs how we can exceed their expectations, without being the loudest statement on the road." Lincoln invented the large luxury SUV in 1997, and now is reimagining Navigator for modern clients interested in better performance, more space and further refinement. Lincoln's design team drew inspiration from luxury sailboats and yachts when designing the new concept. This influenced everything from the clean, modern lines and Storm Blue paint on the exterior that mimics the grays and blues of sea and sky, to the teak finishes, custom gear and wardrobe management system found inside. Go-anywhere performance The Navigator Concept is engineered to provide drivers peace of mind. It features a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine delivering more than 400 horsepower and smart new technologies to make this SUV even more sure-footed on different road surfaces and in changing weather conditions. Drivers can choose several drive modes to improve ride and handling and to find the drive experience that best suits their mood – including steering, suspension and noise levels. Each mode is accompanied by a matching digital animation in the cluster. Personal sanctuary Navigator Concept provides the nameplate’s most spacious interior ever – a key want among buyers of large SUVs – delivered with a refinement that leapfrogs competitors The leather-wrapped interior is rendered in a light blue. Six Lincoln-patented Perfect Position Seats adjust 30 ways to best support occupants’ different body types. The driver’s seat, for instance, includes independent deployable thigh supports for maximum comfort. A custom wardrobe management system holds gear chosen for a day on the water, while Lincoln’s Revel audio system has been specifically tuned to create the highest level sound and visual quality. All of this is accessed through power gullwing doors and deployable concertina steps. A special lighting sequence welcomes passengers for every journey – a signature Lincoln feature. Easier, more connected driving, thanks to new technology The Navigator Concept features Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection, which uses radar and camera technology to scan the road ahead. If a collision risk with a vehicle or pedestrian is detected, the system provides a warning to the driver. If the driver does not respond in time, it automatically can apply up to full braking force to help reduce the severity of, or even eliminate, some frontal collisions Pre-Collision Assist can help drivers avoid rear end collisions with other vehicles at all speeds, while Pedestrian Detection can help the driver avoid pedestrians at lower speeds. Both systems can reduce the severity of forward collisions, or even prevent certain forward collisions. A 360-degree camera and enhanced park assist features take the stress out of parking, exiting a parking spot and maneuvering. The system seamlessly integrates views from four cameras – creating an overhead image that allows drivers to see all around the vehicle. On the road, a lane-keeping system vibrates the steering wheel to alert drivers they are straying from their lane and provides mild steering input to encourage them to steer back toward the center of the lane. In the cabin, head restraint monitors provide passengers Wi-Fi connectivity, allowing them to wirelessly share music and content from personal devices. For drivers, a large panel screen clearly displays key information. The display can be customized from a digital touch screen housed in the center stack.

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.

2017 Renault ALASKAN - Video Debut
 
02:17
New Renault Alaskan pick-up truck rumbles in for 2017 Renault is getting in on the UK pick-up truck act with the new Alaskan based on the latest Nissan Navara This is the Renault Alaskan, a new one-tonne pick-up that will be a rival for its sister vehicle, the Nissan Navara, and competitors like the Mitsubishi L200 and Volkswagen Amarok when it goes on sale in the UK in 2017. The Alaskan is Renault’s first entry into this area of the LCV market - but it draws heavily on Nissan’s experience with the Navara. The styling incorporates Renault’s family face, including an oversized badge in the front grille, complex bonnet surfacing and LED daytime running lights. At the core of the Alaskan’s engine line-up will be the Renault-Nissan Alliance’s 2.3-litre twin-turbodiesel engine, as used in the Renault Master van range. It’ll be offered with either 158bhp or 187bhp. There will also be a 2.5-litre diesel and a 2.5-litre petrol for selected markets, but neither of these motors is expected to make it to the UK. As with the Navara, the Alaskan will be offered with a selectable 4x4 system offering a choice of rear- or four-wheel drive. There’ll also be the option of a six-speed manual gearbox or a seven-speed automatic. The vehicle will be rated at 3.5 tonnes for towing, and will be available in single-cab, double-cab and chassis-cab body configurations. The standard wheel size will be 16 inches, but 18-inch items will be fitted to more expensive versions, and available as an option. Renault says the load bay’s design incorporates C-channels and a number of hooks to help secure loads quickly and safely. The bay also includes a 12V power supply. Cabin equipment includes heated front seats with eight-way power adjustment in the higher trim levels and dual-zone climate control. There’s also a five-inch TFT display, a smartphone-compatible audio system with CD player, Bluetooth and steering wheel-mounted controls, and keyless entry. Renault will offer a seven-inch sat-nav system on selected versions of the vehicle, along with a 360-degree ‘top-down’ camera system to help with tight manoeuvres. The Alaskan will go on sale in Colombia first, but it’ll be available in the UK in the first half of 2017. Prices are expected to be close to those of the Navara, which should mean a starting figure of around £23,000.

2018 Volvo XC40 - PRODUCTION
 
05:33
Production of Volvo’s first ever small premium SUV begins in Belgium A new era starts for the Volvo Cars plant in Ghent, Belgium today as the first customer-bound XC40 small SUV is set to roll off the production line. The new XC40, for which the company has already received over 13,000 orders, is Volvo Cars’ first ever small premium SUV. The first customers can expect to take delivery of their new XC40 early next year. With the XC40, Volvo Cars enters the fastest growing segment in the automotive industry and the car paves the way for continued sales and revenue growth for the company. Joining its larger XC60 and XC90 cousins, the XC40 completes Volvo’s global SUV line-up. The arrival of the first XC40 will be welcomed by a number of high-profile guests, including Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel, Volvo Cars chief executive and president Håkan Samuelsson and Javier Varela, Senior Vice President Manufacturing and Logistics at Volvo Cars. “This is a proud day for Ghent, the company and all our employees here,” said Mr Samuelsson. “Our people have put in long days and many hours to prepare the plant for the start of XC40 production and they have done a great job. The XC40 represents a bright future for Ghent and for Volvo Cars.” The new XC40 is the first model on Volvo Cars’ new modular small car platform, the Compact Modular Architecture (CMA), which will underpin all upcoming cars in the 40 series. The CMA platform, co-developed with Geely, will provide Volvo Cars with the necessary synergies and economies of scale for the small premium car segment. Preparations for the production start of the XC40 in Ghent have been ongoing for a long time. Considerable investments in recent years have transformed the Ghent plant into a global export hub for CMA-based cars, including an 8,000 square metre addition to the body shop. A total of 363 new robots have been installed, including one which has been nicknamed “the Beast” by Ghent employees. This large robot, unique within Volvo Cars’ global manufacturing system, is used to lift lower car bodies to a conveyor belt close to the ceiling of the plant. Ghent is one of two car manufacturing plants operated by Volvo Cars in Europe and has produced Volvos since 1965. Until recently it produced the first generation of Volvo’s best-selling XC60 mid-size SUV, while the Ghent plant also builds the V40 and V40 Cross Country small hatchbacks as well as the S60 and V60. Volvo Cars’ other European plant is located in Torslanda in its home country Sweden. The company also operates two vehicle manufacturing plants in China, while a US plant is under construction in the state of South Carolina and slated for opening in the second half of 2018.

2018 Rolls Royce Phantom - INTERIOR
 
08:21
2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom: The Eighth Generation of Ultimate Luxury New versions of the Rolls-Royce Phantom don’t appear often, so the company can be forgiven for making what the British would describe as “a bit of a fuss” when they do. The original Phantom was introduced in 1925, and Rolls claims that makes it the longest-lived model name in automotive history. In truth, there have been some lengthy gaps between a few of the generations, but this new eighth generation is directly replacing the current car, which was the first BMW-developed Rolls-Royce. This, we remind you, is a car for people who regard the Bentley Mulsanne as too common. Despite looking familiar, this Phantom is nearly entirely new. It sits on Rolls-Royce’s new aluminum spaceframe platform, officially dubbed the Architecture of Luxury, which will go on to underpin all of the company’s forthcoming models, including the Project Cullinan SUV. The 140-inch wheelbase is slightly smaller than the previous car’s, and the overall length of 227.2 inches actually has shrunk by 2.8 inches for the standard-wheelbase version, although you wouldn’t accuse it of having less presence. (As before, an extended-wheelbase version for long-legged plutocrats also will be offered.) Suspension elements are mostly aluminum, with electrically controlled air springs, active anti-roll bars, and adaptive dampers delivering what Rolls-Royce modestly describes as its Magic Carpet Ride. It uses a road-scanning camera system to prepare for bumps before they reach the wheels. Playing the Dozen Rolls-Royce formerly regarded any performance claims beyond “adequate sufficiency” as being beneath its dignity, but there’s no reticence evident when it comes to boasting of the new Phantom’s statistics. Power comes from a new twin-turbocharged V-12 that has been derived from the 6.6-liter unit fitted to the more proletarian Wraith, Ghost, and Dawn and displaces, according to the scholars of history at Rolls-Royce, 6.75 liters. While the peak output of 563 horsepower is the same as its fractionally smaller siblings, torque output rises substantially—to 664 lb-ft, available from 1700 rpm. That means this Phantom is rated for 110 horsepower and 133 lb-ft more than its predecessor. So, we suspect that Rolls-Royce’s claimed 5.1-second zero-to-60-mph time will prove to be pessimistic; Rolls cited 5.9 seconds for the same benchmark in the outgoing model. Chauffeurs Provide Analog Autonomy Rolls-Royce vehicles have always been designed from the back seat forward, and although we’re told that the new Phantom has been designed to offer a sharper dynamic experience than any of its predecessors, most owners are likely to experience it from the rear rather than the front. The cabin retains many traditional touches, including rotary controls for the heating and ventilation system and the denial of a traditional tachometer in favor of a Power Reserve dial in one of the three circular instrument bezels. (Although these look analog, the instruments inside actually are digital screens.) The most outré feature is a toughened glass panel spanning the top of the dashboard and instrument panel; dubbed The Gallery, it has been designed so that individually commissioned pieces of artwork can be displayed within it. Some of the examples Rolls-Royce showed at the new Phantom’s unveiling were a three-dimensional representation of an owner’s DNA profile rendered in 24-carat gold, an oil painting inspired by the South of England in autumn, a handmade stem of porcelain roses, and an abstract silk design. The rear portion of the cabin is more conventional. There are still folding wooden picnic tables, although these are now power operated, and 12.0-inch display screens for rear passengers are integrated into the rears of the front seats. Pretty much every nonglazed surface is covered in either leather, wood, or ankle-deep carpeting, and, as before, the range of customization options is effectively unlimited. If a buyer can imagine a color or trim material, however garish or unlikely it may be, then Rolls-Royce will happily attempt to make the dream come true. We don’t yet have a confirmed price tag, although it is unlikely to be of great concern to those with the liquidity to be Phantom buyers. The previous edition started at $422,925 for the short-wheelbase model (the extended wheelbase was priced from $497,525); given the myriad customization options, the base price merely represents the point at which negotiation begins.

2018 Audi A8 Body Structure - Engineering Wonder (Excellence)
 
04:12
Looking ahead to the new Audi A8: Space Frame with a unique mix of materials Luxury sedan living up to its reputation as an innovation driver in lightweight design Comfortable entry and improved view thanks to roller hemming Extraordinary torsional rigidity delivers gains in driving dynamics and acoustics Know-how based on more than one million series cars with Audi Space Frames Audi is writing a new chapter in its lightweight design success story. For the next generation of the Audi A8*, an intelligent mix of four materials is being used for the first time in the weight-bearing body structure – more materials than in any of the brand’s previous production models. The luxury sedan is thus once again rightfully claiming its role as an innovation driver in automotive lightweight design: Its low weight and impressive rigidity offer greater performance, efficiency and safety. The lightweight design experts at Audi long ago abandoned the fixation on using a single material in lightweight design. With a mix of aluminum, steel, magnesium and carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) they are establishing a new stage in multi-material construction in the Audi Space Frame (ASF) for the next generation of the Audi A8 – in keeping with the principle “the right material in the right place and in the right amount.” Audi consistently applies new material technologies and designs that directly benefit the customer – and not only in terms of weight. The upcoming flagship’s torsional rigidity – the critical parameter for precise handling and pleasing acoustics – surpasses the excellent values of its predecessor by a factor of about one fourth. Innovative production process – the carbon rear panel in the new Audi A8 In terms of its overall dimensions, an ultra-high-strength, torsionally rigid rear panel made of CFRP is the largest component in the occupant cell of the new Audi A8, and it contributes 33 percent to the torsional rigidity of the total vehicle. To optimally absorb longitudinal and transverse loads as well as shearing force, between six and 19 fiber layers are placed one on top of the other, ensuring a load-optimized layout. These individual fiber layers consist of tapes 50 millimeters (2.0 in) wide and can be placed individually in a finished layered package, with any desired fiber angle and minimal trimming of the fibers. The innovative direct-fiber layering process specially developed for this purpose makes it possible to entirely dispense with the normally needed intermediary step of manufacturing entire sheets. Using another newly developed process, the layered package is wetted with epoxide resin and sets within minutes. A high-strength combination of hot-formed steel components make up the occupant cell, which comprises the lower section of the front bulkhead, the side sills, the B-pillars and the front section of the roof line. Some of these sheet metal blanks are produced in varying thicknesses using tailoring technologies – meaning they are customized – and others also undergo partial heat treatment. That reduces weight and increases the strength, especially in areas of the vehicle that are particularly critical for safety. The aluminum components make up 58 percent of the new Audi A8 body, the largest share in the mix of materials. Cast nodes, extruded profiles and sheets are the elements characteristic of the ASF design. And here too the competition of materials has been driving progress. New heat-treated, ultra-high-strength cast alloys attain a tensile strength of over 230 MPa (megapascals). The corresponding yield strength in the tensile test is over 180 MPa, and for the profile alloys it is higher than 280, i.e. 320 MPa – significantly higher values than seen previously. Rounding out the intelligent mix of materials is the magnesium strut brace. A comparison with the predecessor model shows that it contributes a 28-percent weight savings. Aluminum bolts secure the connection to the strut tower domes, making them a guarantor of the body’s high torsional rigidity. In the event of a frontal collision, the forces generated are distributed to three impact buffers in the front end. Benefits for customers and the environment – the new body shop for the Audi A8. In addition to the complete redevelopment of the Audi Space Frame for the next generation A8, the production halls at the Neckarsulm location were specially built for the upcoming flagship. A total of 14,400 metric tons of steel were needed just for construction of the new, 41-meter-high body shop, twice as much steel as was used for the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

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. With its two twin scroll turbochargers, it develops 430 kW (585 hp) from a displacement of 5,950 cm3. Its 800 Nm (590.0 lb-ft) of torque is available constantly between 1,300 and 5,000 rpm. 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.

2016 Muscle Car Crash Tests - Camaro Mustang Challenger
 
03:07
Flexing muscleSports car ratings show range of performance Think "muscle car" performance, and images of speed and power are more likely to come to mind than crash tests and safety ratings. Because no one buys a sports car to drive in the slow lane, the best all-around occupant crash protection is crucial. IIHS recently put a trio of iconic sports coupes through their paces, and unlike more sedate sedans, none earns the scores needed to clinch a Top Safety Pick award. IIHS evaluated 2016 models of the Chevrolet Camaro, Dodge Challenger and Ford Mustang in the full battery of crashworthiness evaluations. The Mustang comes closest to earning Top Safety Pick, while the Camaro falls short in one category and lacks an available front crash prevention system. The Challenger is most in need of improvement. To qualify for Top Safety Pick, vehicles must earn good ratings in the small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint evaluations and have a basic-rated front crash prevention system. To qualify for the Institute's highest award, Top Safety Pick+, vehicles must earn good ratings in the five crashworthiness tests and an advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention. IIHS doesn't typically crash-test sports cars as they make up a small share of the consumer market. IIHS engineers decided to evaluate these models with optional V-8 engines because they are big sellers in their class, and consumers often ask how they would perform in crash tests. Insurance data point to high losses for sports cars. As a group, they have the highest losses among passenger vehicles for crash damage repairs under collision coverage, data from the Highway Loss Data Institute show. Collision coverage insures against physical damage to the at-fault policyholder's vehicle in a crash. "Given that sports cars have high crash rates, it's especially important that they offer the best occupant protection possible in a crash," says Adrian Lund, IIHS president. The Camaro, Challenger and Mustang earn good ratings for occupant protection in a moderate overlap front crash, as well as a side impact. In the newest and toughest IIHS crashworthiness evaluation, the small overlap front test, the Camaro earns a good rating, the Mustang earns acceptable, and the Challenger is rated marginal. "The Mustang is just one good rating away from earning Top Safety Pick," Lund points out. "Its small overlap rating holds it back." Added in 2012, the small overlap test replicates what happens when a vehicle runs off the road and hits a tree or pole or clips another vehicle that has crossed the center line. In the test, 25 percent of the total width of the vehicle strikes the 5-foot-tall rigid barrier on the driver side at 40 mph. It is an especially challenging test because it involves a vehicle's outer edges, which aren't well-protected by the crush-zone structures. Crash forces go directly into the front wheel, suspension system and firewall. The Challenger wasn't up to the challenge of the small overlap test. Extensive intrusion into the lower occupant compartment limited the driver's survival space and resulted in a poor rating for structure and for leg/foot protection. Measures taken from the dummy indicate a high likelihood of serious lower leg injuries. "During the crash, the Challenger's front wheel was forced rearward into the occupant compartment, and the footwell intrusion trapped the dummy's left foot and deformed its ankle," Lund explains. "Our technicians had to unbolt the dummy's foot from its leg in order to free it. Entrapment is pretty rare. That's only happened five other times in a small overlap test." In contrast, survival space for the driver in the Camaro was well-maintained, and the risk of injuries to the dummy's legs and feet was low. The Camaro was redesigned for the 2016 model year. "The Camaro's safety cage is built to resist intrusion in a small overlap crash, and that's good news for Camaro drivers," Lund says. The Mustang's structural performance in the small overlap test fell short of the Camaro's but was an improvement over the Challenger. The roof buckled, and the driver's survival space was compromised by considerable intrusion of the door hinge pillar and instrument panel. Still, measures taken from the dummy indicated low risk of injuries to all body regions, including the legs and feet. The Camaro and Mustang earn good ratings for head restraints and seats to protect against neck injuries in rear crashes. The Challenger's head restraints are rated acceptable. The Mustang earns a good rating for roof strength, and the Camaro and Challenger earn acceptable. Stronger roofs crush less in rollovers, reducing the risk that people will be injured by contact with the roof itself and the risk that unbelted occupants will be ejected.

2021 Audi e-tron GT - Perfect Coupe!
 
06:03
New star in the movie capital –the Audi e-tron GT concept Four-door Gran Turismo with electric drive Volume production starts in late 2020 Audi e-tron, the third: The brand with the four rings is presenting one of the stars of the 2018 Auto Show in the movie capital Los Angeles. With the electric powered Audi e-tron GT concept a four-door coupé is making its debut as a show car. The volume-production counterpart is set to follow in around two years. The next electric Audi is being launched, following in the footsteps of the Audi e-tron SUV and the Audi e-tron Sportback slated for 2019. This time with a flat-floor architecture that provides for exciting proportions and a low center of gravity. 434 kW (590 hp) ensure performance fit for a sports car. The torque is transferred to the wheels via the quattro permanent all-wheel drive with torque vectoring, as you would expect for such a dynamic Audi. The performance subsidiary Audi Sport GmbH is responsible for subsequently transforming the car into a volume-production model. Inspiration drawn from the wind tunnel: design and body Flat, wide and with a long wheelbase – those are the proportions of a classic Gran Turismo. And the Audi e-tron GT concept reflects these with its 4.96-meter (16.3 ft) length, 1.96-meter (6.4 ft) width and 1.38‑meter (4.5 ft) height. The lightweight body of the four-door coupé is manufactured using a multi-material construction. Here you have a roof section made from carbon along with numerous aluminum components and supporting elements made from high-strength steel. The technology for this automobile was developed in close collaboration with Porsche. Design and character are packed full of unmistakable Audi DNA. The gently sloping roofline of the e-tron GT concept that extends well into the rear echoes the Sportback layout that is the hallmark of the brand. This is however clearly taken forward into the future, pointing the way to the next evolutionary stage of the Audi design language. The cabin that tapers strongly toward the rear stands out compared with current Audi models. Wheel arches and shoulders are sculpted emphatically and, together with the flat floor that is unusual for an electric vehicle, visually underlines the low center of gravity and the dynamic potential of the Audi e-tron GT concept. The broad lines and the numerous functional elements of the body as well as the air vents of the wheel arches and the solid rear diffuser emphasize its origins in the wind tunnel. A low drag coefficient that reduces fuel consumption and the low uplift visually characterize the design. The sill area between the wheel arches has been drawn way outwards, creating a distinctive contrast with the cabin.The sill draws the eye to the underfloor area where the battery and thus the energy center of the Audi e-tron GT concept are located. The design of the wheels with their five twin spokes is also visibly aligned to their function. Their dynamic design provides optimum ventilation of the brake disks while also reducing drag. Shod with 285/30 size tires, the 22-inch wheels also make a clear statement when seen from the side. The hallmark Audi Singleframe is located in the center of the front section. Compared with the two e-tron SUVs its architecture is much more horizontal. The top half comes with a cover painted in body color. Its surface structure is reminiscent of the typical honeycomb pattern of the grille on the Audi RS models – a visual signal which characterizes the Audi e-tron GT concept as a future product of Audi Sport GmbH. Together with the targeted airflow of the body, large air inlets in the front effectively cool the assemblies, battery and brakes. The hood with its airflow on the surface echoes the brand’s two latest show cars, the Aicon and the PB18 e-tron. It is designed in such a way that the airflow hugs the body, thus reducing undesired swirl. The arrow-shaped front section also emphasizes the matrix LED headlights with laser high beam, underscoring the dynamic presence of the Audi e-tron GT concept even while stationary. As already seen with the brand’s current Visions vehicles, the light is also animated here and welcomes the driver with a short function sequence, the wave of light that extends horizontally: a new visual signature that is set to find its way into volume production in future. A light strip runs across the entire width of the rear. This strip dissipates at the outer edges, in the actual lighting units, into individual wedge-shaped LED segments. This architecture links the e-tron GT with the volume-production SUV e-tron, making both instantly recognizable even in the dark as Audi electric automobiles.

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"

Ford Explorer Interceptor Ballistics Level III Testing Features
 
01:22
Ford Police Interceptors Become First Pursuit-Rated Police Vehicle to Offer Ballistic Protection Against Armor-Piercing Rifle Ammunition US Department of Justice standard Type IV specifies protection against armor-piercing .30 caliber rifle ammunition First pursuit rated police vehicle to offer Type IV ballistic panels in the United States Optional ballistic panels are in addition to the long list of existing safety features available on the Ford Police Interceptor sedan and utility DEARBORN, Mich., March 10, 2016 – Ford announced today it will offer ballistic panels on their Police Interceptor sedan and utility with protection from armor-piercing rifle ammunition. “Ford is well-known in the police community for going further to enhance officer safety. It’s what our product is all about, first and foremost,” said Raj Sarkar, general marketing manager, Ford North American Fleet, Lease and Remarketing operations. The factory-equipped vehicles are the first pursuit-rated police vehicles in the United States to offer ballistic protection up to Department of Justice’s (DoJ) National Institute of Justice standard Type IV. According to the Department of Justice standard, the description of a Type IV ballistic panel is: “Type IV hard armor or plate inserts shall be tested in a conditioned state with .30 caliber armor piercing (AP) bullets (U.S. Military designation M2 AP) with a specified mass of 10.8 g (166 gr) and a velocity of 878 m/s ± 9.1 m/s (2880 ft/s ± 30 ft/s).” While the number of shootouts between police and criminals using high-powered, armor-piercing rifle ammunition is low, they are unfortunately becoming more common. “The fact that we design our Police Interceptors around officer feedback is what has made them number one. Officers globally told us they needed protection from armor piercing ammunition and we added increased ballistic protection to an already great product – that’s continuous innovation,” said Arie Groeneveld, chief engineer, Ford Police Interceptors. The Type IV panels are an additional option above and beyond existing ballistic panel protection offered by Ford. Optional Type III ballistic panels are already on duty in agencies around the United States and are rated to protect against all handgun and non-armor piercing bullets up to .30 caliber (specifically up to 7.62mm x 51mm NATO M80 ball ammunition) as well as special threat rounds identified by the Los Angeles Police Department. The optional ballistic panels are in addition to a long list of existing features aimed at protecting officers, including Ford Police Interceptor safety cell construction to aid structural integrity. In the event of a crash, advanced safety technology helps to absorb the energy of the collision and to direct the impact forces away from the occupants. Additionally, crumple zones are strategically placed in the frame or body of the vehicle, further absorbing and dissipating the energy of a crash to reduce intrusion into the occupant compartment. Innovative materials – such as aluminum, advanced plastics and boron steel – also contribute to vehicle strength. Other examples of Ford’s commitment to officer safety include a 75-mph rear crash test rating, police-tuned suspensions, police brakes, steel wheels, unique police interiors as well as a range of upfit options.

2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport S - Test Drive
 
03:30
2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport S breaks front-drive Nurburgring lap record The special edition Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport S has recorded a sub-7min50sec lap of Germany’s infamous Nurburgring Nordschleife, making it the fastest front-wheel-drive production car to lap the 20.83-kilometre circuit. With 228kW of power and 380Nm of torque available from its turbocharged 2.0-litre EA888 four-cylinder engine, the two-seat, three-door, manual-only Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport S – the most powerful GTI ever – set a time of 07:49:21, bettering the 7:54.36 time set by the Renault Megane RS275 Trophy-R back in June 2014. Limited to a production run of 400 cars, Volkswagen claims the special edition Golf GTI Clubsport S can sprint from 0-100km/h in 5.8 seconds and wind out to 265km/h. Driven by 28-year-old German racer Benny Leuchter and equipped with a “special sport chassis”, “special brake pads” and 19-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 235mm-wide, 35-profile “semi-slick” Michelin tyres, the German car maker says the record-breaking run was achieved using a unique ‘Nurburgring setting’. Accessed via the standard model’s driving profile selector, engineers have reconfigured and fine-tuned the ‘Individual’ setting to “suit the unique conditions of the Nurburgring”. Although profiles for ‘Comfort’, ‘Normal’ and ‘Race’ are also available in the Clubsport S (normal Golf GTIs being limited to a choice of ‘Comfort’, ‘Normal’, ‘Sport’, or ‘Individual’), the special Nurburgring setting specifically adjusts the car’s adaptive suspension, engine, steering, and sound to create an ideal setup for the Nordschleife layout. Further, Volkswagen has added a new exhaust system to the car, while also reducing weight down to 1285kg, or around 30kg less than a similarly equipped Golf GTI Clubsport – a car due to go on sale in Australia from June, priced from $48,990, badged as the Golf GTI 40 Years Edition. Inside, along with the removal of the rear seats, the Golf GTI Clubsport S also features a driver and front passenger racing bucket seat, red-lined seat belts, an Alcantara-trimmed sports steering wheel and an Alcantara-trimmed version the Golf’s iconic golf ball gear knob. The record run not only ensures the Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport S will draw plenty of crowds at its world premiere at the Worthersee VAG festival running from May 4-7 in Austria, but also plenty of controversy too. Much debate surrounded the 7:58.44 time set by the ‘specially equipped’ Seat Leon Cupra 280 and a 7:50.63 time set by a single-seat, preproduction prototype version of the new Honda Civic Type R.

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.

2020 Hyundai Palisade - WILD SUV!!
 
08:54
POWERTRAIN Palisade power comes from an Atkinson-cycle 3.8-liter V6, dual CVVT, direct-injected engine, for excellent power and efficiency. This 3.8-liter powerplant produces an estimated 291 horsepower @ 6,000 rpm and an estimated 262 lb.-ft. of torque @ 5,000 rpm. Palisade offers more standard horsepower than any other SUV in its competitive set and an unsurpassed level of torque. Palisade delivers that power to the wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission with a multi-plate torque converter and offers both two-wheel and HTRAC® four-wheel-drive configurations, with a final drive ratio of 3.648 for confident acceleration. Special efforts were made to reduce Palisade NVH, with generous under-hood insulation, special sound-deadening carpets and powertrain tuning that delivers a smooth, linear response. In addition, Palisade offers drivers the ability to start the vehicle via remote key fob or via the Blue Link app. Hyundai's flagship SUV is also its most technologically advanced model to date. UPDATE: Live photos of the Palisade from the Los Angeles Auto Show are now in the gallery below. The new Santa Fe launched earlier this year is bigger than its predecessor, but Hyundai knows there are families looking for something even larger. Enter Palisade. The new midsize SUV is not only larger than the regular Santa Fe, but also bigger in every way than the Santa Fe XL. It’s 196.1 inches long, 77.8 inches wide, and 68.9 inches tall, with a generous wheelbase stretching at a Nissan Pathfinder-matching 114.2 inches or a full four inches more than that of the aforementioned Santa Fe XL. When it comes to styling, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but it’s safe to say there’s nothing quite like the Palisade in this segment. Heavily related to Kia’s new Telluride, Hyundai’s flagship SUV gets a bold front fascia design in many ways similar to the Santa Fe’s by adopting a large and imposing cascading grille flanked by two-tier headlights. The sheer size of the vehicle is more evident when you look at the side profile, specifically the length of the rear doors and the generous greenhouse. Those massive wheel arches can accommodate 20-inch wheels to give the Palisade a powerful presence. Although it’s a large and tall vehicle, Hyundai’s range-topping SUV has an impressive drag coefficient of just 0.33 thanks to several aerodynamic tweaks such as rear wheel aero deflectors and underside panels. At the rear, a pair of sweptback LED taillights provides a clear visual distinction from the Santa Fe, as does the model’s name generously featured on the tailgate with big characters. Inside, the ample cabin can seat up to eight people on three rows, with the second one featuring ventilated captain’s chairs while the rearmost seats recline and feature power-folding/unfolding. Perfect for big families, the Palisade has a total of seven USB outlets, 16 (!) cupholders, and all the technology Hyundai has at the moment. There’s wireless charging, a 10.25-inch touchscreen, a 12.3-inch digital driver’s display, and the possibility to hook up two devices through Bluetooth at the same time – one for mobile phone connection and the other for audio streaming. We’re barely scratching the surface here as Hyundai has crammed a lot of tech into its biggest SUV: shift-by-wire controls on the center console, head-up display, intercom system, adaptive cruise control, and much more. The company refers to its roof vent diffuser design as an “industry-first,” mentioning it provides a quieter and more uniform airflow coming from the rear air conditioning while giving passengers the freedom to pick from focused, partially-diffused or fully-diffused stream of air. In regards to the oily bits, the 2020 Hyundai Palisade is powered by a 3.8-liter V6 producing an estimated 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet (355 Newton-meters) of torque. The engine is hooked up to an eight-speed automatic transmission and will be offered with both two- and four-wheel-drive setups. Hyundai’s proprietary HTRAC all-paw system comes with the usual driver-selectable Normal, Sport, and Smart modes, plus a newly developed Snow mode for slippery conditions. PRICE Hyundai hasn't released pricing yet, but don't expect the 2020 Hyundai Palisade's base MSRP to be much more than the Santa Fe XL's roughly $32,000 starting price. The price naturally creeps up as you add luxuries such as ventilated front and second-row seats, a head-up display and power-folding seats. Look for more information closer to the Palisade's summer 2019 on-sale date.
