Infiniti to give itself a bigger boost with a new technology-laden SUV

Although Infiniti is already one of the fastest growing luxury car brands, it aims to give itself a bigger boost with a technology-laden crossover that one executive calls the most important vehicle in the brand’s history. The redesigned QX50, scheduled to reach dealerships in the first quarter of 2018, is the world’s first production car with a variable-compression engine, using technology that Nissan Motor Co. has been working on for about 20 years.
The 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbo increases the vehicle’s fuel economy to a combined rating of 27 mpg for the front-wheel-drive configuration – 35 percent more than the outgoing model – while offering the power of a six-cylinder engine. Christian Meunier, Infiniti Global Division vice president, says that this crossover is a perfect combination between a sprinter and a marathon runner. He claims that the QX50 is the most important vehicle they have ever launched, and it embodies everything the brand stands for, including beautiful design, advanced technology and empowering performance. He also calls it “the right vehicle at the right time in one of the world’s fastest growing segments”. Read more

New Nissan Star Wars themed vehicles arrived

New Nissan Star Wars themed vehicles arrived: We knew about the partnership between Nissan and the Star Wars franchise, but hey we were just as surprised as you are right now seeing these new Star Wars themed cars. We really thought that this year there will be no movie themed cars, but this popular tuner wasn’t ready to let such an occasion go, and prepared a few good models for us. Take a look

2018 Nissan Rogue – Poe Dameron’s X-wing with BB-8

2018 Nissan Altima – Special Forces TIE Fighter: The Special Forces TIE Fighter is a strike fighter used by the First Order’s elite Special Forces pilots. This is fittingly recreated using Nissan’s best-selling sedan, Altima. The show vehicle features custom body enhancements, bringing it in line with a member of the First Order’s fleet. The vehicle’s standout feature is the cockpit window that brings the multi-paned look of the Special Forces TIE fighter to the Altima’s windshield. Custom wheels and full-body wrap bring the dual-winged spacecraft to life.

Kia and Alfa Romeo named finalists at the North American Car Awards

Kia and Alfa Romeo named finalists at the North American Car Awards: It’s the first time ever for Kia and Alfa Romeo to be named finalists for the North American Car,Truck and Utility of the Year Awards. The nine vehicles still in the running for the 2018 awards also include two chances for Honda to extend its winning streak to a third consecutive year. The three car finalists announced Wednesday at the Los Angeles Auto Show are the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord and Kia Stinger. The Camry and Accord, which have long battled for supremacy in the now-fading midsize sedan segment, will be up against Kia's first serious performance car.

In the most competitive category, the utility finalists are the Alfa Romeo StelvioHonda Odyssey and Volvo XC60. They beat out 12 other semifinalists, including three from General Motors and three from Volkswagen Group of America. The truck award is a battle between Ford and Chevrolet. Only three vehicles were eligible, so all of them -- the Chevy Colorado ZR2Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator - automatically became finalists.

We'll get a production version of the new I.D. Crozz EV in 2020

Volkswagen‘s all-electric I.D.Crozz concept SUV has been on the global auto-show circuit this year. After popping up in Shanghai in April, the concept moved to Frankfurt with some improvements, and now, it’s made its way to Los Angeles. Volkswagen claims it will introduce a production version of the I.D Crozz in 2020, as the first U.S.-bound vehicle from its new electric portfolio.
After that, we’ll be waiting for the bus: The production version of the I.D. Buzz electric minivan is expected in 2022. Volkswagen showed its three electric concepts, the aforementioned two along with the original I.D. concept. The three share a modular electric platform, which will underpin VW’s plans for building 15 different electric car models around the world by 2025. The original I.D. is a smaller vehicle and is not expected to be sold in the States. Read more

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLS- Leaked pictures

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLS- Leaked pictures: This is the all-new Mercedes-Benz CLS. We think. We’ve split-screened this and the old one and we’d swear it was just a facelift, but apparently we’d be wrong.

The images have been leaked by various social media channels (whoops) a day before its scheduled debut at the Los Angeles Motor Show.

mercedes_cls_2

They’re low-res files, but we get our first full look at the front, the back and the interior, where we can see the same sort of ambient lighting line as we’ve already clocked in the new A-Class. Expect that to change colours, like the smaller car’s does.

Mercedes’ designers have pinched the outer edges of the single-unit headlights, making them more triangular than before. The silhouette must be more or less identical partly thanks to a roof line that involved some fine use of copy and paste.

The new tax reform could force some dealerships in Texas to shutter

The new tax reform could force some dealerships in Texas to shutter: For people who live in such a big state as Texas, driving is more like a way of life. The average Texas motorist logs more than 16,000 miles behind the wheel each year, far more than the average American. Nationally, nearly 1 in 10 new vehicle registrations occurs in the Lone Star State.

cars-and-coffee-plano-texas023

The central role cars play in Texas means that policies that impact the automobile industry affect us more than most. The tax reform package being considered by Congress has many benefits — but a major wrinkle in the Senate version could force some dealerships in Texas to shutter. That would devastate Texas motorists and jeopardize more than 200,000 jobs. Earlier this month, the U.S. House passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, a comprehensive reform of the nation’s tax code. The bill kept in place a rule that allows local dealerships to deduct the “floor plan interest expense” they pay on the loans they rely on to purchase cars.

Is this car really the one buyers dream about? Cause we don't like it

Is this car really the one buyers dream about? Cause we don't like itIf someone would have built a car British buyers actually desire, we’d have one hell of a mess on our hands. This monstrosity is apparently what we’d end up with, based on a survey of 2300 Brits who expressed their love for the Lamborghini Urus body, Audi R8 doors and side trim, anAlfa Romeo front end, rear lights from a BMW 6 Series and, err, the exhaust from a Hyundai i30Right. The renders somehow managed to leave that one off in favour of a more VAG-ish pair.

2b65267948a7285d6e395fa2a86ae63d
The study, commissioned by a very popular UK web-site, also found that the Bentley badge was the favourite, while chunky off-road tyres wrap the wheels from the latest Honda Civic Type R. It’s topped by a spoiler wrenched from a Lamborghini Gallardo. As styling horror shows go, this one even eclipses old SsangYongs.

Car sales to stay strong thanks to Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales

Car sales to stay strong thanks to Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales: As aggressive incentive spending continues to sustain a robust autumn, automakers are projected to report car sales growth for November. Forecasts from J.D. Power/LMC Automotive, Kelley Blue Book and Edmunds call for a seasonally adjusted, annualized selling rate ranging from 17.1 million to 17.8 million, which would represent a drop-off from the rates topping 18 million that were posted in September and October.

black_friday_b9.jpg

The projections are split on how sales volume will compare with a year ago, with estimates ranging from a 1 percent decrease to a 3.5 percent increase. Automakers are due to report November results on Friday. "While 2017 may have gotten off to a sluggish start, strong sales through the back third of the year are making up for lost time," Jessica Caldwell, Edmunds' executive director of industry analysis, said in a statement.

Mazda plans to increase sales by adding an SUV to its lineup

Four years ago, CEO Masamichi Kogai predicted Mazda would be notching annual U.S. sales of 400,000 cars by now. Instead, it is in a second-straight year of decline, with volume under 300,000 and market share retreating from an erstwhile goal of 2 percent. Now Kogai claims the U.S. resurgence will start in earnest in 2019 and kick into overdrive in 2021 when Mazda adds an all-new crossover designed for and built exclusively in the U.S.
Giving first details of the new nameplate in a Nov. 16 interview, Kogai said it has potential to be the brand’s best-seller. He said it would slot into Mazda’s three-vehicle crossover lineup without cannibalizing the CX-3, CX-5 and CX-9. The vehicle will be produced starting in 2021 at the plant Mazda and Toyota plan to jointly build in the U.S. Mazda will initially dedicate its entire capacity of 150,000 units there to the vehicle. For comparison, Mazda‘s best-selling nameplate, the CX-5, managed just 112,235 units in 2016. Kogai says they have big expectations. Read more

Honda claims it's working on 15 minute charging for its upcoming EVs

There are a number of charging “breakthroughs” under development in the world of electric cars. Some seem more realistic than others, especially when you factor in costs, but they depend on a number of factors. Battery density, materials, charging output and onboard charging capability are all variables at play, and automakerstech companies and universities are among the entities racing to advance EV energy technology past the fabled “tipping point” when they offer more advantages than internal combustion cars across the board. Honda has its own leap forward in charging on the horizon, saying it’ll whittle charging time down to 15 minutes by 2022.
Honda claims it will launch a number of electric vehicles that year capable of adding about 150 miles of range in 15 minutes. To do this, the automaker will offer new batteries capable of taking advantage of ultra-fast chargers that we’ll begin to see open up between now and when these new cars become available. Japan expects 350-kW chargers to launch in 2020, up from the 150 kW that Japan’s fastest chargers currently offer. Honda will partner with another company to produce the new batteries, but it has not yet chosen that collaborator. Read more 

The wave of off-lease vehicles will be here in 2018

The wave of off-lease vehicles will be here in 2018: The U.S. marketplace gets new opportunities thanks to the wave of off-lease vehicles which is expected to hit the used market in 2018. Analysts who track U.S. retail auto sales and lease penetration rates say that the vast majority of leases that originated in 2015 will end in 2018 and include notably more crossovers, SUVs and high-end models.

Off-Lease-Hyundai-Vehicles-fleet-for-presidential

By most counts, 3.9 million light vehicles are expected to come off leases in 2018, roughly 300,000 more than in 2017. The used-vehicle market already has more late-model, lower-mileage units — and fewer of the 5- to 8-year-old models that basic transportation buyers go for. That will favor franchised dealerships over independents.

2 Most awaited SUVs of the year: Infiniti QX50 and Subaru Ascent

2 Most awaited SUVs of the year: Infiniti QX50 and Subaru Ascent: Two of the most important SUVs of the year to be unveiled at the 2017 L.A. Auto Show. One of them is the 2018 Infiniti QX50 premium crossover SUV, and the second one is the much talked-about 2019 Subaru Ascent three-row SUV.

maxresdefault

The Los Angeles-bound QX50 is not just an interesting in terms of its design and features – and the fact that Infiniti’s SUVs are always a head and shoulders above the competition. This bad boy is also the first production vehicle ever to feature an engine with variable compression. The new VC-turbo petrol unit is what Infiniti calls “major step in optimising efficiency and emissions of the internal combustion engine.”

Buy a car at RepoKar this Winter

Buy a car at RepoKar this Winter: With winter on its way, the roads can be dangerous because it dries slower and road visibility as well as battery failure can also be hazardous. It’s time to start thinking about how you can make your daily drive safer and stress-free. That doesn’t necessarily mean you should buy an SUV or crossover to survive the season. Plenty of sedans and wagons provide qualities that can keep you safe in sleet and snow.

pizap.com15116114359561

These medium-sized vehicles also help you save at the pump! But what actually matters here is choosing the right place to buy a car from. There are several options on the market, so it’s probably hard to pick a place to find the right car. But with RepoKar Auto Auction, you’ll be sure to have an easy time of finding the vehicle you want, you’ll never use other car dealerships or car platforms.

Real Madrid players get some

Real Madrid players get someReal Madrid FC football players are already super rich, but that doesn’t mean they won’t accept some expensive presents from their team sponsor Audi. The automaker has delivered a fleet of brand-new models to the whole team, so they would drive them in the new season. But with all the exotics on their garages would they even drive them, unless they have some kind of obligation to be seen in public with these cars.

Real-Madrid-Audi-5.jpg

Take Cristiano Ronaldo, for example. The dude has multiple Ferraris and Lamborghinis, and recently bought a Bugatti Chiron. A pre-facelift Audi RS7 probably doesn’t float his boat, even considering the fact that most other players got lesser models!  While 14 of the players went for the Audi Q7 e-tron quattro plug-in hybrid model so as to put on a green face for the media, coach Zinédine Zidane opted for the Audi RS 6 Avant to show he is still a man of good taste.

Black Friday deals will help boost November car sales

Black Friday deals will help boost November car salesBlack Friday deals might be able to save the situation of car sales this month. According to an industry consultant and car shopping website, the U.S. new vehicle sales will rise 3.5% in November.

blackfriday

The company estimated that November U.S. sales would be 1.4 million new cars and trucks, for a seasonally adjusted annualized rate of 17.8 million. The company also forecasts that 2.9 million used vehicles will be sold in November 2017. "It also doesn't hurt that automakers are starting to really sweeten the deals to clear out lingering 2017s and end this year on a high note".

XING Mobility Miss R: Ready to beat Tesla's Roadster

XING Mobility Miss R: Ready to beat Tesla's RoadsterXING Mobility is that one company who is in the electric powertrain business for quite some time, but you still haven’t heard of it until now. Why now you’d ask? Because it just has introduced its new XING Mobility Miss R which can compete with Tesla’s Roadster for sure.

XING-Mobility-Miss-R-3 (1)

The naming of this electric supercar is not particularity brilliant. But wait until you hear about the kind of performance it promises. There ain’t nothing miss-y about the numbers this car can pull. According to the Taipei-based firm, XING Mobility Miss R has one megawatt of power which is about 1,341 horsepower,produced by 4 independent 350V motors. Since the Miss weighs next to nothing, they say it can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 1.8 seconds, and to 200 km/h in 5.1 seconds. Those are better records than that of the new Tesla Roadster.

McLaren 720S GT3 will make its racing debut in 2019

McLaren 720S GT3 will make its racing debut in 2019We have just told you about McLaren’s new Vantage and we already have the first pictures of the racing version of its 720S supercar. The 650S GT3 has only been on the motorsport scene for two years, but McLaren is already planning the car’s replacement. It’s the 720S GT3, and it’ll be developed in 2018 ahead of a 2019 customer racing debut.

906876039411382b4913251e91fbcd2e
Since it’s still early days for the car, all we have to look at thus far are these two design sketches. Already though, you can get a sense of how mean this thing is going to look IRL. The 720S GT3 will be developed in-house at McLaren, whereas the 650S GT3 was developed by CRS racing. Woking’s deal with CRS will finish at the end of the 2017. We can expect the McLaren-developed 720S GT3 to use the same 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 as the road car, but it’ll need to be heavily restricted to less than 500bhp for some racing series, with the power varying depending on regulations.

Uber paid hackers to delete the stolen data of its customers

Uber paid hackers to delete the stolen data of its customersHackers stole the personal data of 57 million customers and drivers from Uber Technologies Inc., a massive breach that the company concealed for more than a year. This week, the ride-hailing firm ousted its chief security officer and one of his deputies for their roles in keeping the hack under wraps, which included a $100,000 payment to the attackers.

ap_16180821960037
Compromised data from the October 2016 attack included names, email addresses and phone numbers of 50 million Uber riders around the world, the company said Tuesday. The personal information of about 7 million drivers was accessed as well, including some 600,000 U.S. driver’s license numbers. No Social Security numbers, credit card information, trip location details or other data were taken, Uber said.

Aston Martin’s Vantage successor is here

Aston Martin’s Vantage successor is here: We’ve seen Aston Martin’s Vantage for the first time 12 years ago, and it’s not going to retire anytime soon, here’s the changes it gets for 2018. The replacement is more striking, sharper, and much, much faster.

How much faster? Well, mash your foot on the right-hand pedal fast enough, and the Mercedes-AMG-sourced 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 will put severe stress on your internal organs as 0-62mph comes and goes in just 3.6 seconds. Far quicker than the old V8-powered Vantage, and faster even than the V12 Vantage S. The top speed meanwhile is 195mph.

Here's why you must consider shopping for a car on Black Friday

Here's why you must consider shopping for a car on Black Friday: As we know people are waiting for the Black Friday deals a lot, they have already planned how they visit the malls and shop for everything needed there, but one thing they did not plan is visiting also auto dealerships for new car purchases and car auctions like RepoKar Auto Auction for buying used cars for great prices.

cover-deals-876x535

The four-day Thanksgiving weekend is one of those holidays — along with Memorial Day, Labor Day and the Fourth of July — when auto dealers typically sweeten deals to draw out buyers. This week, it could be even better than in past years. Here are the reasons: Automakers piled on the sales inducements in October, a reflection of slightly lower auto sales this year. Sales were off 1.7% through the first 10 months of 2017.

U.S. rejects Ford petition to delay airbag recall of 3 million cars

The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said on Friday it was rejecting a petition byFord to delay recall of about 3 million cars with potentially defective Takata airbag inflators. The agency said it did not find the request by the second largest U.S. automaker to defer a recall until additional testing was conducted “reasonable under the circumstances or supported by the testing and data it has collected to date.”
Takata inflators can explode with excessive force, unleashing metal shrapnel inside cars and trucks. At least 18 deaths and 180 injuries worldwide have been tied to the defect that led Takata to file for bankruptcy protection in June and prompted at least 19 automakers to issue recalls. NHTSA also rejected a similar petition filed by Mazda covering about 6,000 vehiclesFord did not immediately say if it plans to challenge the agency’s decision. “We will cooperate with the agency, as we always do,” a spokeswoman said. The vehicles in question include the 2007-11 Ford Ranger, 2006-12 Fusion and Lincoln MKZ, 2006-11 Mercury Milan, and 2007-10 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKXRead more
