Starting from next month, the British B-segment MPV buying public can get themselves a hot new Fiat. It’s the updated 2019 Fiat 500L S-Design, boasting an impressive array of special exterior and interior features. It may not be the sportiest car in its class, but the S-Design is probably the least boring.
A long while after its motor show debut, the amazing Mercedes-AMG Project ONE finally hits the road as a production prototype. This ultra-dream car comes in very limited numbers and all of them are pre-sold probably. But still, we can’t wait to see it on the road and check it out in action.
Well it didn’t take long for the internet to come up with a hot version of the fresh-out-of-oven SEAT Tarraco. The full-size SUV has been treated here to a Cupra R treatment, usually reserved for the Spanish car maker’s hottest hatchbacks. And it looks rather good.
This rendering is actually very much relevant. Usually when independent designers go to town on new production cars, they tend to turn them into outlandish creatures with no chance of production. With this SEAT Tarraco Cupra R though, we think they definitely should make it, or at least something like it.There is a whole flock of affordable high-performance SUVs coming out soon, namely the Skoda Kodiaq vRS, and SEAT is going to need more than one player in the field to take them on.
With less than a month to go until its debut at the Paris Motor Show, the new Skoda Kodiaq vRS shows itself for the first time. The early look comes courtesy of a couple of official renderings. They might be just drawings, but they do a good job of conveying the aesthetics of the sporty SUV.
Don’t be fooled by the retro looks. The Peugeot e-LEGEND Concept is by far and away the most advanced thing the French company has ever built. It is a vision of the future, according to Peugeot – a vision that remains loyal to the brand’s traditions, at least in terms of styling.
You can be free and choosy when buying a car for yourself, but when it comes to your family, you have to think practically instead of instantly going after the car that they always desire to have. There are many things, which before were not of any concern, that have become big factors because the family’s safety are involved.
Car loans in Singapore are fairly easy to get, given that you have a good credit score, are of legal eligible age and can afford the payments. Let us guide you while you choose a good car loan.
What are car loans?
A car loan is a type of loan you take in order to finance the purchase of a car. Not everybody in Singapore wants to own a vehicle due to the well-structured public transport system, but those who do want to own one can generally get a car loan to finance up to 70% of their expenditure.
One of the first complete styling package for the new 2019 Suzuki Swift Sport comes from Kuhl Racing. The Japanese tuner may have a unique taste that is not everyone’s cup of tea, but with this car they seem to have done it right.
The large aero parts, the extremely low ride height, and the crazy muffler setup at the back – these are all what you would expect to see on a tricked-out hatchback. The parts are well designed too. The components have been designed to match the stock features of the 2019 Suzuki Swift Sport to a tee. Yes, they are kind of too big. But that’s how the sporty hatchback crowd like their body kits. They need to be big and showy.
If you judge Wald International by the kits they make for Japanese cars, you have to conclude they are extremely flamboyant. But you only have to look at their European kits to realize they also know style and refinement. This is Wald Mercedes C-Class in Executive Line style, and isn’t it just fantastic?
The official MSRP for the 2019 Genesis G70 has been revealed,and it’s tempting. The base G70, which is still better equipped and more powerful than most of its rivals, will set you back $34,900. A fully-loaded AWD Launch Edition with the big engine runs for $52,250.
2019 Genesis G70 can be obtained with two engines. The default is a 2.0T inline four-cylinder turbocharged engine (252HP/260lb-ft), with a 3.3T V-6 twin-turbocharged (365-hp/376lb-ft) available for higher trims. The former comes in six trim levels, the latter in four. There is also two limited production Special Edition 3.3T packages: Dynamic Special Edition and Design Special Edition. These models are limited to 400 units each.
The Hannover Motor Show for commercial vehicles saw the debut of many interesting concepts this year. One of the most interesting, arguably, was the Nissan Navara Dark Sky Concept. This unique take on Nissan’s popular pickup truck has been built in collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA).
The larger member of the Ram Trucks family, compared with the popular 1500 series, has just got more irresistible. The Ram 2500 Power Wagon Mojave Sand is a new edition of the macho truck, boasting now the unique color of the Ram Rebel as well as new all-black wheels.
These changes go a long way in making the 2018 Ram 2500 Power Wagon Mojave Sand Edition one of the hottest looking car in this segment. But that is not all you get with this limited edition. After all, it costs $54,830 in Crew Cab 4×4 variant, with a $1,695 destination charge. So you would expect a little more than a paint job.
We’ve been through countless teasers for SEAT’s full-size SUV, but it’s finally here. The 2019 SEAT Tarraco is a large family SUV with flexible seating options and a fresh design, complementing the car maker’s utility range. It is also one of the best engineered cars they have ever made.
Ferrari is stepping up its bespoke, special series production to a whole new level. The new Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2 concepts showcase what you can expect from this series. And what you can expect is modern, highly exclusive supercars with a strong vintage flavor.
That defines pretty much every bespoke Ferrari that came out in the last 20 years or so. The Icona series is aimed at collectors and “dedicated clients” who are willing to part with big sums in exchange for a super exclusive Ferrari. The Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2 pay homage to Ferrari racing barchettas of the past. They are single-seater sports car on the basis of the Superfast, boasting 810 horsepower V12 engines.
Mercedes-Benz still hasn’t made it clear who exactly is the customer base for their high-powered, super expensive hatchbacks. What they have done is come up with a new one. The 2019 Mercedes-AMG A35 is sort of a diet A45, but it still has 306 horsepower and definitely costs a lot.
That is what the critics of AMG hatchbacks tend to point out every time you bring them up. They argue that hot hatches must not be overly technical, complicated, expensive machines. They shoudl be affordable, blue collar, honest to God cars for those who cannot afford a sports car. So they’re probably not going to like the Mercedes-AMG A35. This thing is brimming with technology. It has a fully variable all-wheel drive; a 7-speed AMG DCT; AMG Ride Control; Adaptive damping; Track Pace data logger; variable steering; MBUX, and…
Here’s another proof that traditional tuning tricks don’t work on the new electric car. Well, they do work in the literal sense of the word. But they invariably end up ridiculous and outright silly. This is a 2018 Nissan LEAF modified by Kuhl Racing. And while the body kit is prominent, the negative camber treatment is the main highlight of the package.
Jetta? Bonneville? Well, apparently yes. When you think about the typical Jetta buyers, you don’t exactly picture them as the Bonneville salt flats type. But for some reason Volkswagen felt the need to have this car set a record at the legendary proving ground. The 2019 VW Jetta prepared for the job managed to clock 210.16 mph (338.15 kph).
So the long-awaited and much-teased Audi e-tron was unveiled today as a fairly bland electric SUV. Going against Mercedes EQC, the new e-tron is a quality two-motor product with a lot of good thing going for it. Unfortunately, that goodness comes at a price.
And that price is, well, the price. Audi e-tron SUV, they can already tell us, will start at 79,900 EUR. That, they can tell us. But exactly how much power it makes, they’re not ready to divulge that information. But as mentioned, it has an electric all-wheel drive 2-motor system, and energy recuperation with the integrated electrohydraulic brake control system. Audi is not ready to let us know about the range, either.
Nissan is one of the car makers whose range of SUV/crossovers covers almost all types and sizes. The 2019 Nissan Pathfinder sits somewhere around the middle of that range, and offers a nice compromise for a good price. The new versions kicks things off at $31,230.
As with all Nissans, you get plenty of value for that price. All 2019 Nissan Pathfinder are powered by a gutsy 284-horsepower 3.5-liter V6. The engine develops 259 lb-ft of torque as well. And with an Xtronic transmission that gives it a towing capability of up to 6,000 pounds. What’s more, the SUV can seat up to seven people and comes with EZ Flex Seating System with LATCH AND GLIDE. What that means is, the Pathfinder is very practical for the needs of a family, even a big one.
Even though it’s a limited-run product, and even though the 12-month production run is nearly fully allocated, McLaren has launched an online configurator for the new 600LT. The fans and potential customers of McLaren 600LT can through this nifty tool designing their dream Long Tail Mac.
Of course, most of the people who will try this tool cannot afford the £185,500 pre-customization price tag. But they can still enjoy seeing the sexy McLaren 600LT in one of the 28 available colors. Some of these colors are seriously hot, at least in the way they sound: Myan Orange, Chicane Effect (grey); and Luminaire (green). These are MSO Defined colors mind you, and probably cost a lot. For the interior, you can choose among six different ‘By McLaren’ Designer interior themes and options. These come three in Alcantara and three in Nappa Leather. And of course they all feature bold colors.
The much publicized 2019 Jaguar I-Pace is set to take the EV market by storm. It is poised to be the most versatile, most usable car of its type. And it’s taking some positive steps toward proving that, including this latest stunt. In it the I-Pace traveled from London to Brussels non-stop on one charge.
Toyota confirmed the debut of a new hot version of the Yaris at this year’s Paris Motor Show. The Toyota Yaris GR SPORT is inspired by the limited edition GRMN and has a lot of Gazoo Racing inspiration behind it. The little pocket rocket has some properly juicy specs, even if it may not look the part.
German tuner G-Power has been experimenting with some other brands lately, but now they are back tuning BMWs. And what a BMW they have picked for their latest project. The new 2018 G-Power BMW M5, the F90 series, is an absolute monster.
The power upgrade kit Big G has devised for the M5 gives it as much as 200 extra horsepower. The package comes in three power flavors to suit everyone’s needs. That is not to say the standard M5 is weak or anything like that. The saloon comes with 600 stock horses which is A LOT. But G-Power BMW M5 takes that up a notch, delivering 700, 750 and in the full-fat version 800 horsepower.
As one of the best looking on the GT grid, or any grid for that matter, the Huracan GT3 is a popular race car. Now teams can have a new version of this beast with not just good looks, but enhanced performance as well. The 2019 Lamborghini Huracan GT3 EVO comes with aerodynamics and performance upgrades.
Just as we thought BMW was done creating fugly cars, they came up with this. This is the long anticipated BMW iNEXT, a vision concept car that shows which direction BMW i products are headed. I know, the looks are awful, but the direction technology-wise is a good one.
BMW iNEXT is a highly automated, fully connected, all-electric crossover vehicle. That makes it the perfect recipe for the car market over the next five or ten years. Unless, you know, one of those carbon-neutral recycled fuels chemist are developing actually work. But absent an alternative fuel that could potentially doom the whole EV revolution, the iNEXT is ready for what’s next.
We are told, almost everyday now, that pretty soon self-driving, intelligent, autonomous cars will replace our human-driven machines. For all the major changes in ways and habits that that entails, it is not likely that cars suddenly turn into an entirely new entity. They will remain cars, and like the present-time cars, you are going to need to buy and sell them.
Bentley is yet to release a SuperSport version of the new Continental GT. So those who fancy an extra-powerful GT have to make do with the previous generation. That is not necessarily a bad thing. I mean, just look at this WheelsAndMore Bentley GT SuperSport 24. This ought to keepthe owner amused for another couple of years.
The Cherokee has almost completed its Eurofication in terms of design. The last part is for Chrysler’s parts arm Mopar to come up with some handy accessories for it, which they have now done. The 2019 Jeep Cherokee by Mopar is about as European as an American SUV can get.
And… it’s still not as good as a genuine Euro SUV. 2019 Jeep Cherokee is a fine product, no doubt about it. But in a world where stuff like the Range Rover Evoque and Mercedes GLC exist, why would you want to settle for a lesser thing? In any case, the Mopar collection of part for the new Cherok include some cool items.
The unveiling of the new Mercedes GLE SUV was all that X-Tomi Design needed to hows us that car’s hunchbacked brother. We are of course talking about the 2020 Mercedes GLE Coupe. This rendering is pretty much spot on in showing you the looks of the upcoming coupe-SUV.
We have to say, we’re still baffled why car makers call these type of jacked-up fastbacks Coupe SUV. We get the SUV part, but coupe does not really make sense here. It’s just one of those names that was misused first and then stuck. At any rate, the 2020 Mercedes GLE Coupe will inherit its sloping roof from the previous generation, and it’s front and rear fascia from the new GLE.
Boasting a few upgrades for the new modelyear, the 2019 Nissan Rogue is now on sale across America. The crossover boasts a starting MSRP of $24,800 and comes with new useful equipment. The new stuff make the Rogue an altogether more appealing proposition.
The new 2019 Nissan Rogue is available with a Special Edition Package for the base S grade. It enhances the features of the car by adding 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, heated exterior mirrors with integrated LED turn signals, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, heated driver’s and front passenger seat, chrome exterior and interior door handles and roof rails. The SV grade meanwhile boasts a Premium package including 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, ProPILOT Assist and electronic parking brake.
So the Beetle is, once again, at the end of the road, going out of production in 2019 without any plans for a future revival. If you are a fan, don’t despair. They will bring the thing back at some point. And until then, you have the VW Beetle Final Edition to keep yourself amused with.
That pretty much sums up the entire DS range, does it not? They are all unusual but fascinating cars. In the case of the new DS3 Crossback they have dialed the crazy a bit higher, offering a car that is unlike anything else out there. Whether this is something the market will embrace or shun remains to be seen.
Okay, first of all, this is not pink. Do don’t call it that. The unique violety color featured on this super special Bimmer is a lot classier than pink. In fact, this Rose Quartz BMW 750Li is like those rose gold iPhones that came out a few years ago. It’s nice.
This car, as is the case with almost all special and custom BMWs, is a commission by BMW Abu Dhabi. As if the base 7-Series wasn’t special enough, they ordered on with an ‘Individual’ color and then customized with some aftermarket bits. Well, almost aftermarket. The Rose Quartz BMW 750Li features some add-on part that are the work of BMW’s own tuning arm, the M Performance department.
We’ve been waiting to see the new Kia Ceed GT ever since we saw its first teaser. And we’re glad to report that the real thing does not disappoint. The performance hatchback has great specs for a car in this class and it boasts some sexy looks to boot.
Kia’s Ceed family have always been a head and shoulders above the rest of the firm’s compact models in terms of looks and quality. The 2019 Kia Ceed GT is no exception. The body of the new Ceed, which by the way has no apostrophe in its name, features sharp and “taut” lines. That gives the car a performance-oriented appearance, like that of a world-class athlete. Larger air intakes and gloss black trim, ice-cube LEDs and 18 inch wheels are among other cool highlights of the exterior.
With less than a month to go until the world debut of the new 2019 Skoda Kodiaq RS at the Paris Motor Show, the Czech car maker released the first details and specs of the hot SUV. Everything about this car is very un-Skoda-like, which is very good news!
What we mean by that is, Skoda used to be synonymous with cheap cars for the economy class. In recent years though, they have stepped up their game and created some fascinating sporty models. The 2019 Skoda Kodiaq RS is one of the hotted yet, seeing as it’s a SUV and a diesel. That’s right, Skoda has taken a diesel utility vehicle and turned it into a hot rod with a Nurburgring record in the bag.
The smallest member of Lexus SUV family is getting ready for its launch in the American market. On this occasion the company confirmed the specs and MSRP of the urban crossover. 2019 Lexus UX starts from $32,000 for UX 200, while UX 250h hybrid costs another two grand on top of that.
The first all-electric Aston Martin is shaping up at the firm’s facilities in Millbrook, UK, and by the looks of things it’s going to be a stunner. Confirmed for production as Aston Martin Rapide E, the electric saloon has some juicy specs to back its superb design.
We have already seen what Aston Martin Rapide E looks like with the concept version. It’s a regular Rapide with some special highlights denoting the car’s electric nature. But its design is a story for another time. Here let’s stick with the technical specs. The electric Rapid boasts two electric motors with a total output of 610 PS and a massive 950 Nm of torque. So right off the bat, this car is a super saloon.
Renault today revealed the first images and videos of their mid-size crossover. Sitting above the Capture in the range, the 2019 Renault Kadjar has more bulk, style, and presence than its little sister. It also benefits from higher capabilities.
2019 Renault Kadjar boasts all-wheel drive systems and off-road capabilities developed by Nissan. So it’s pretty god at dealing with the rough stuff. That is something the Captur does not have, except for a special version in the Russian market which has AWD. The Kadjar is closer to a real SUV in terms of size as well. The silver protecting parts on the front and rear and the fluid lines of the body boost that effect.
Even with the increase of cellular towers, it is easy to lose your internet signal when you are in your car. One top of the constant increase of smartphone apps and our dependency on them, when we can’t access the internet when we want to, we might find ourselves inconvenienced or even in serious trouble.
This year’s Paris Motor Show will see the debut of one of the world’s most important cars. It’s the new 2019 BMW 3-Series, bringing with it new looks, advanced technologies, and great quality. The latter has been ensured by a series of arduous tests around the globe.
Dynamic tests at the Nurburgring, hot weather evaluation in Death Valley, cold weather testing in Arjeplog, and regular driving around the city. The 2019 BMW 3-Series has gone through it all, and it has passed all tests with flying colors. BMW is known for their rigorous tests, which is why their cars are such solid products when they reach the customers.
Mercedes-Benz’s first attempt at making a sport utility vehicle was a complete flop. We’re talking about M-Class which first appeared in 1997 with rubbish looks and even worse quality. But for all its fault, the M was a charming car, and so is its latest descendant. The 2019 Mercedes GLE is the evolution of that car and it is pretty much perfect.
Ram Trucks have been making so many cool and sporty pickups lately, we’d almost forgotten they are in commercial vehicle business. This ought to bring us back to reality, though. The new 2018 Ram Harvest Edition is a serious agricultural vehicle “designed specifically for America’s farm families.”
JLR’s classic division, known as Jaguar Land Rover Classic, is upping its game yet again. They announced today the launch of vintage-looking but modern infotainment systems for classic Jaguars and Land Rover modes. This means you can have your cake and eat it too.
The feature-packed infotainment comes in “authentic-looking, classically-styled, head unit” and in single DIN size, which means it gits most classic vehicles running on negative earth electrics. It might look old, but the Jaguar Land Rover Classic Infotainment System has everything a modern system has. You get customisable satellite navigation in up to 32 languages, smartphone integration, Bluetooth connectivity and dual DAB/DAB+ digital radio, as well as FM and AM analog reception.
While most car makers are busy electrifying their vans and consider that a huge leap forward, Mercedes-Benz has come up with a concept that reinvents this whole class of vehicle. The Mercedes Vision URBANETIC is an electric, autonomous, multipurpose van that truly deserves the title of the van of the future.
The soon to be released 2020 Kia Telluride, the production of this concept model, revealed itself to the American public during the New York Fashion Week show. It wasn’t the showroom model, but a heavily customized version by designer Brandon Maxwell. The car was sent there to raise awareness for its market launch in early 2019, and also to raise money for charity.
You probably don’t remember, but a few months ago a Vietnamese car maker emerged out of nowhere and announced two new models. Turns out they were dead serious,and they have now revealed the first two products. One is called the VinFast SUV and it will be complemented later with a VinFast Sedan.
Whether you want a car for a long road trip or something you can use to drive to a family member’s wedding, you need to get a great value. Getting a rental has to be the most practical way of finding a vehicle you’ll only use for a day or two, but it takes a longer decision process to decide on one that will serve you for a long time. No matter what features you want, the best approach is always finding what you need at the best value.
