Subaru WRX vs. Mitsubishi Evo

Subaru Impreza WRX

MSRP (Base, est): $26,000
Engine: 2.5-liter turbocharged flat 4-cylinder
Horsepower: 224 bhp @ 5200 rpm
Torque: 226 lb-ft @ 2800 rpm
MPG (city/highway): 19/24

Performance - 16/20
Compared with the last WRX, the new car represents some tradeoffs. Power and weight are unchanged, but 0 to 60 mph comes later, now at 5.8 seconds instead of 5.3 with the standard five-speed manual (a four-speed automatic is optional). As a consolation, the new car has better midrange passing power and feels smoother doing it. For some, that will be enough to seal the deal; for others, a major turn-off. As before, the all-wheel drive setup delivers well-balanced handling and feedback through the new car’s standard 17-inch wheels.

Exterior design - 8/20This isn’t quite to the point of being embarrassed to be seen in, but suddenly we take back all the smack we said about previous Subaru’s sky-high wings and gold wheels. In reflection, nudging past the line of tastefulness was better than the slightly larger ‘08’s unappealing blandness.  

Interior design - 7/10
Ignore the outside looks and the new WRX interior is a better place to be. Prior cars weren’t just no-nonsense, they were cheap inside. Backseat passengers had little room and a decent sound system meant big bucks. This time around, better quality materials and more room befit the price and dimensions.  

Sound system/goodies - 7/10
Always home to a capable sound system (for a price), the WRX for 2008 now offers an 80-watt 4-speaker system standard. It includes an in-dash, single-CD player with auxiliary jack and speed-sensitive volume adjustment. You still have to cough up extra for the 100-watt, six-disc system (part of the $2,100 Premium Package), but the standard and available options are more in tune with the character and price range.

Bang for the buck - 15/20
A good value in this redesign, if not the steal of the century. It’s obvious Subaru has taken note of complaints surrounding standard equipment and appointments with the new WRX.  

Driving experience - 17/20
If you can stand being seen in what some will mistake for a Nissan rental, the experience from the cockpit will probably make up for it. A tick slower off the line, the midrange is still formidable. Subaru also reminds us the engine is as easily tuned as ever, plus they feel the WRX will stand more distinctly from the upcoming STi.

Overall score - 70/100
Like a comic actor trying to appeal to a more grown-up audience, the WRX takes on a more serious role for 2008. The visual makeover is questionable and the laughs are a little more cerebral, but it’s still a crowd-pleaser.

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X

MSRP (Base, est): $32,000
Engine: 2.0-liter turbocharged inline 4-cylinder
Horsepower (est): 285 bhp
Torque (est): 265 ft-lbs
MPG (city/highway, est): 20/25

Performance - 17/20
If you thought the old car was hot, this car is outstanding. Mitsubishi has been generous with official photos for some time now, but we’re still waiting for the steak (testing, or at least official stats) to accompany that visual sizzle. Early suggestions at 300-plus horsepower may have been a little optimistic; our educated guess is a still-healthy 285, with 265 ft-lbs of torque, give or take on either figure. A couple highlights we can share are in the handling and transmission details. First, the new Evo will come with multi-mode Super All-Wheel Control. It combines active stability control, an active center differential, active yaw control and antilock brakes. If it sounds like the fun police have won, think again. This all works to deliver superior handling, we’re told, and even hedonistic drifting if so desired. Also, the Twin Clutch Sport Shift Transmission will come with odd and even gears on separate shafts and clutches, making for faster shifts with reduced power loss compared to a conventional automatic. If you insist on exercising your left foot, a five-speed manual can be had instead.

Exterior design - 18/20Had we conducted this test a year ago, the Subie would get higher marks and the Evo would be a cellar-dweller. What a difference a year makes. The new Evolution has more of a purposeful look than the last car, which appeared to have been tarted-up in a kid’s garage. This Evo wears a prominent, Eclipse-like snout and shades of Acura and Mazda can be seen in the rear flanks; though the latter doesn’t look too contrived or unappealing.

Interior design - 6/10
The last car was all business inside, a little drab and a bit too purposeful. The new car is still ready to rock, but it does allow a few concessions in the name of ergonomics and creature comfort, short of selling out.

Sound system/goodies - 6/10
A lot of Evo drivers instinctively rip out whatever audio deck came with their cars, but acceptable factory audio can probably be had in the new car without resorting to the aftermarket. We suspect the Evolution will come nicely equipped, based on the 2008 Lancer GTS’ 140-watt system and Bluetooth interface.  

Bang for the buck - 15/20
The performance and trueness to character of the new Evolution build upon the last car’s traits. The price follows suit, too. Whereas the 2006 Evo had a base price of $29,149, we suspect the new car to chime in for at least $32,000. Getting a little heady, but the performance we’ve been promised should allow this to represent a solid value.  

Driving experience - 18/20
The experience will make you wonder why some guys spend thousands more on performance cars that fall short of the Evo, especially now that it has better looks to back up the bigger bang.

Overall score - 80/100
Mitsubishi execs can finally exhale. The company ship seems to have been righted, the cars are the best they’ve been in recent years and the 2008 Evolution is definitely a highlight.

And the winner is…

Until very recently, comparisons of the Subaru WRX and Mitsubishi Evolution have come down to matters of personal preference; the performance largely a draw and aesthetics subjective. Both cars are still decent overall but their courses no longer run parallel. The now conservatively-styled (and to us, homely) WRX will now court the more adult enthusiast. The redesigned (for the better) Evolution will still cater to those who resist settling down -- maybe wooing a few Subie drivers in the process.

2011 Mini Cooper Roadster


 
Design

Differentiated by its uncharacteristic swept windshield, A-pillars, low roofline and aggressive stance, the Mini Roadster is immediately recognized as a very unique Mini model. While those familiar with the current Mini lineup will instantly recognize the familiar styling below the beltline, the new Roadster features a small cloth convertible roof, ending dramatically in front of the rear trunk. Absent of the Cooper convertible’s two rear seats, the trunk is now larger as the safety roll bar has been moved forward on the chassis.

Model Lineup

The Mini Roadster joins the Cooper, Clubman, Convertible and new Coupe for the 2011 model year. One of a pair of 2-seat models in the expanded lineup, the Roadster is designed to offer a sporty top-down driving experience with a standard turbocharged engine under the hood.

Hardware

The 2011 Mini Roadster shares its mechanicals with the Mini Cooper S model. Under the bodywork is a turbocharged 1.6-liter powerplant. The 4-cylinder engine is fitted with a twin-scroll turbocharger delivering 175 horsepower and 177 lb.-ft. of torque. With its basis on the Cooper S, the Roadster is likely to remain front-wheel drive and equipped with either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission.

Like the Cooper S models, the Roadster’s underpinnings include a front MacPherson strut, rear multi-link suspension, with sport-tuned dampers fitted at both ends and likely available with John Cooper Works handling upgrades such as a front strut tower brace.

Safety

Both the driver and front passenger inside the Mini Roadster are protected by dual-stage deployment “smart” frontal and seat-mounted side air bags. The roll bar has been moved forward in the Roadster—and completely redesigned as a single aluminum bar spanning the entire width of the interior. In the event of a rollover, the bar is engineered to move up electromechanically in just 150 milliseconds to provide additional head protection. In its stowed position it is designed to remain low, preserving the driver’s unobstructed view out the rear of the Roadster.

Like other Mini models, dynamic stability control and traction control are standard features on the Roadster. In addition, all Roadsters are fitted with 4-wheel-disc brakes with ABS, cornering brake control, and electronic brake distribution to give the driver more control while slowing or stopping the Mini.

Technology

The Mini Roadster is fitted with a unique system of instruments designed to reinforce its “fun to drive” quotient. The “Always Open” function tells the driver how long he or she has been driving with the top down, a feature offered on the standard Mini convertible today. Features present on the Roadster concept but which may not see production are a “Nature Guard” function, telling the driver how efficiently they are driving, “Highspeed Shifter” display telling the driver how to utilize the engine for maximum power, and a “Gravity Indicator” presenting lateral g-forces and the direction of the acceleration. The “Heart Beat” setting visualizes the speed of the engine graphically (like a human heart beat): The faster the engine revs, the faster it beats. Lastly, the “Buddy Radar” shows the driver where other Mini drivers are currently out on the road (gender not included).

2010 Audi S4 vs. 2009 BMW 335i - Comparison Tests

All the sports-sedan action is below a $50,000 base price, we’re told by Audi’s marketers. Think of it as the Hugo Boss class of cars, where respected labels adorn quality goods that look swish but still fall within a stretch for wage earners. Go over 50 large and a psychological trigger trips. That’s the realm of the luxury seeker, a rare air where sporty drivers don’t dwell en masse. Even in normal times, go above $50,000 and the dealership traffic trickles.




Turbocharging usually means lag and lumpiness, but not here. BMW’s blown six streams its power in a silky, sateen torrent that cleaves through 60 mph in 4.9 seconds, a dead heat with the more powerful Audi. The six-speed slips into its gates like a runway model into a size 2, and the steering—oh, the steering: The forearm effort is light, but the response is immediate and the feedback no fainter than if your palms were dragging on the road.

You could drive this BMW for the entirety of a quiet commuting life and never be dissatisfied, even with the firm ride. No question, BMW crafts a smooth engine, but real power lives only in the higher registers, above 4000 rpm. Where the cocksure Audi blitzes hills in third and fourth, the BMW’s cooker demands frequent visits back to second to keep its sauce boiling.

Despite the 3’s superior skidpad performance, in harder real-world corners its Bridgestone run-flats lose their bite earlier, the razor-responsive steering dissolving into sideslip with an abrupt degeneration of control and at lower thresholds than in the Audi. At any pace exceeding 80 percent of insanity, our confidence likewise dissolved.




As we boogied over the asphalt strings that drape the mountains of Southern ­California, the BMW invariably fell behind. Whether you’re steering, braking, shifting, or flooring it, the 335i is always enticing you to push harder—but in the unflappable Audi, you in fact can.

The BMW’s brakes are excellent, but time stops for no one. The 335i was new in 2007 and got a mild styling jiggle for 2009. Competitors have improved, and some aspects of the 335i—its lofty price, the coldly impersonal cockpit with its meniscus-shaped dash and slightly old-fashioned displays—never pleased everyone. Polarized sunglasses are a no-go: From the driver’s seat, the audio and climate control’s LCD readout goes dark.

The wheelbase is two inches shorter than the Audi’s, so it does not come as a startling revelation that the BMW’s back seat is less accommodating and involves more of a struggle past doors and over sills to get back there. In both cars, the trunks are spacious.

2011 Hyundai Sonata Midsize Sports Sedan

Hyundai introduced its all-new 2011 Hyundai Sonata at the 2009 Los Angeles Auto Show. This marked the North American debut of the latest version of the popular mid size sedan, introducing Hyundai's "Fluidic Sculpture" design language and an all four-cylinder engine lineup to the U.S. market. Hyundai Sonata is the second vehicle in Hyundai's 24/7 version 2.0 product initiative (seven new models in the next 24 months) following on the heels of the all-new Tucson. Production of Hyundai Sonata will begin in December 2009 at Hyundai's U.S. plant in Alabama with retail sales beginning in January 2010.

Car maintenance

There are few things that need to take care which are basic of the car maintenance. Like my car, usually i will send my car for service for every 5000km. The service center will provide service for changing engine oil + oil filter and check condition of the car. Sometime, they will change the air filter also. Usually they will ask what kind of oil we want to use either mineral or semi or fully syntetic. http://www.fixcarnow.com/auto-repair-culver-city/oil-change-culver-city.php

The reson why we need to keep on time changing the engine oil is to let the life span of the engine become longer. The engine also can work smoothly and can go at top of its performance. If there anythings else found unusual from the inspection by the mechanics,they will inform us and give the best recommendation to solve the problem.http://www.fixcarnow.com/auto-repair-culver-city/

Thats why sometime, u see there's a car broke down on side of the road. The most problem is they dont follow the recommandation to maintain the car condition. A car is like human, need a proper take care to live happily. So, Please check your car before start to travel to any place near or far. Better u know the situation before u stuck with the problem.http://www.fixcarnow.com/auto-repair-culver-city/brakes-repair-culver-city.php

Toyota and Subaru are Collaborating for FT-86


Toyota FT-86 sports coupe continues to produce new information on the Subaru-based auto-inch pavement this morning. The Toyota FT-86 is expected later this year at the Tokyo Motor Show. According to the latest report from the FT-86 sheets with the same 305 hp 2.5L boxer-four in the Subaru Impreza STi. Earlier reports suggested that the basic model has a 2.0L engine gain 200 hp.

2011 Renault Captur Concept



2011 Renault Captur Concept does more than simply stir the emotions: it is also a practical and versatile vehicle. It is fitted with a hard convertible top which, once removed, reveals a carbon fibre framework. Captur Concept can thus transform itself from a coupĂ© to a convertible, from an urban vehicle to an off-roader, while its overall sporty appeal is reinforced by its butterfly doors and big tyres fitted to 22-inch

Myvi Extreme


Can u imagine this car. Looks like autobot. Can take audition for next transformers.











Perodua Myvi

The Perodua Myvi is a supermini/subcompact hatchback manufactured by Malaysian car maker Perodua since 2005. Based on the second generation Daihatsu Sirion/Boon and Toyota Passo, the Myvi is the result of Perodua's collaboration with both Toyota and Daihatsu

Equipment levels

The Myvi was made available in five variations: 1.0SR (5 speed manual), 1.3SX (5 speed manual), 1.3EZ (4 speed auto), 1.3SXi (5 speed manual), and 1.3EZi "Premium" (4 speed auto). A Myvi "Special Edition" was also made available, featuring a bodykit encompassing modified bumpers, sideskirts and a spoiler. The Myvi was also made available with dual airbags and ABS.

Colors available on the Myvi include Ebony Black, Olive Green, Glittering Silver, Ozzy Orange, Classic Gold, Mistique Red, Mocha Silver and Pearl White. The facelift features a new colour range which consist of Medallion Grey, Ivory White, Pearl White, Klasik Gold, Mistik Red, Ebony Black, Caribbean Blue and Glittering Silver.[2] The Perodua Myvi SE is available in Ivory White, Ebony Black, Glittering Siver, Pearl White or a special Tangerine Orange exclusive only for the Myvi SE.

Performance and design

The Myvi boasts either one of two water-cooled, four-stroke engines derived from the first generation Daihatsu Sirion: A 1.0 litre EJ-VE engine with three in-line cylinders, or the Toyota Passo: 1.3 litre K3-VE engine with four in-line cylinders; both engines employ Dynamic Variable Valve Timing (DVVT) systems and conventional electronic fuel injection (EFI).

In addition to raw performance, features previously uncommon on Perodua cars were inherited from the Sirion to the Myvi. Among them are 4-hole injectors, foamed urethane injected to the A-pillar, centre pillar and B-pillar for noised insulation, immobiliser systems and pedestrian injury reduction body construction. Other notable features include underbody air flow regulating items, resin intake manifolds and cylinder headcovers integrated with air cleaner cases (for 1.0 engines) and flexible flywheels for reduced vibration during running (for manual transmission).

2010 X6 HYBRID





 




We've known for a while that among other BMWs for 2010, the company would introduce its X6 ActiveHybrid this fall.

Now Autocar reports that the new version of the large, US-built "sport activity coupe" will be the world's most powerful hybrid-electric vehicle, with its 4.4-liter V8 and electric motor combining to produce 478 horsepower and 575 foot-pounds of torque.

That gives it not only a 0-to-62-mph time of just 5.6 seconds, but gas mileage of 22.8 miles per gallon on the European test cycle. That's a significant improvement on the six-cylinder X6's EPA ratings of 16 mpg city / 20 mpg highway.
BMW claims that the X6 ActiveHybrid, like many "full hybrids", can run in full electric mode at speeds up to 37 miles per hour, for distances up to 1.6 miles--though almost certainly not both at the same time.

Fast but heavy

The penalty comes in weight. The standard 2010 BMW X6 xDrive50i (yes, that's its real name) tips the scales at an already-porky 5,000 pounds, and the hybrid gear adds another 400 pounds.
BMW's hybrid X6 uses a version of the Two-Mode Hybrid system jointly developed by General Motors, Daimler, Chrysler, and BMW. Thus far, that system is sold in the US only on GM's 2010 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid and GMC Sierra Hybrid pickup trucks, as well as several of GM's full-size sport-utility vehicles.

Visually, you'll be able to distinguish the hybrid X6 by the "powerdome" on its hood. It's a less extreme version of the huge hood-mounted box seen earlier this year in spy shots of the X6 hybrid being tested in Death Valley. (A new metallic blue paint is only available on the hybrid as well.)

2011 Chevy Volt



The fact that it also has a revolutionary powertrain that operates as an electric car or a plug-in hybrid—and is the first Chevrolet you can plug into a wall to recharge—could almost be an afterthought. It's that well executed. The Volt may be propelled by electricity. It may plug into a wall socket or a special garage recharger to "refuel." But the new and remarkable compact hatchback also rides and drives quietly, seats four comfortably, and performs briskly.

Simply put, the Volt charges up for a range of about 40 miles on battery power only; then the gasoline engine allows another 300 miles or so on top of that.

The sole fly in the ointment is the inevitably high early adopter price: $41,000. New auto technology always costs a lot when it first hits the market, and the Volt's lithium-ion battery pack all by itself likely costs half the price of a new 2011 Chevy Cruze subcompact.

2011 Lexus CT 200h


Hybrid power, low emissions and high fuel efficiency: it’s not the kind of equation that suggests the kind of sharp and sporty handling that Lexus claims owners of the Lexus CT 200h will be able to experience.

The key, however, is the chassis refinements that Lexus engineers have installed in the new hybrid hatchback. The list includes lateral performance dampers, components that, until now, have largely been the preserve of a very few high-performance models. Lexus has used the damping technology as an effective way of increasing torsional rigidity, both front and rear, suppressing vibrations and contributing to ride comfort without the penalty of extra weight.

The damper design is like that of a monotube shock absorber. Used in place of conventional rigid bracing, they are deployed between the front suspension towers, and at the rear across the lower back panel.
As for the powertrain, the car comes with a 1.8-liter gasoline engine and a hybrid drive system. It features four selectable drive modes: ECO, NORMAL, SPORT and EV. In electric-only mode, the CT 200h is capable of traveling up to 28 mph for 1.2 miles. Additionally, combined with the lateral damping system, plus the electric motor’s torque hitting down low and all the power from the gasoline unit up high, the CT 200h should prove interesting to drive hard.

Nissan Skyline vs Mustang

The R32 to the R34 Skyline GTR models and on paper as 276bhp this you will see with many models different car models of a few years from Japan.This was a restriction put on them by the power that be in Japan(until January 2005 where it was lifted.),although owners whom bought stock versions dyno there cars and got power figures of around 33bhp and this was still on a detuned engine,one thing that makes the skyline popular in real life is the tuning ability of the engines again back to the GTR this will see power figures of around 500bhp on stock internals and this is what the engine was actually made to do stock wise.Of course with mods these cars will far exceed that and being in figures over 1000bhp,again what makes them popular.

We have a Skyline GTS-T version in my town and he runs at around 650-700bhp,my R33 has a book 0-60 of 6 something yet i can get 5.2 results.

So to be fair the Skyline is a monster and a true Godzilla.its not the greatest car in the World but the tuning ability of the engines the handling and the looks and as cheap as they are they should be the best.

2011 Honda CR-Z




 
The letters stand for Compact Renaissance Zero and announce Honda's goal of transforming the automotive landscape with a compact car that produces negligible emissions. As implied by renaissance, Honda has been down this road before: In name and silhouette, the CR-Z is clearly meant to trigger fond memories of the original Honda CRX.
 
That little coupe helped foster and legitimize the Japanese, front-drive sport-compact craze. Light and snappy handling, the CRX proved a high water mark for the era, especially in canyon-carving Si trim. Heck, we picked the CRX as our Import Car of the Year in 1984 and the redesigned CRX Si again in 1988. But the CRX's most enduring legacy might come from the high-fuel-efficiency HF model, which managed an impressive 50 city and 56 highway mpg on the old EPA cycle (41/50 mpg adjusted to 2008 standards). No surprise that Honda cites that gas sipper as the impetus for the 2000 Insight, the first hybrid car sold in North America.
 

Though 15.9 inches longer (9.3 inches of that between the wheels), 4.6 inches wider, and 4.1 inches taller than the original CRX, the CR-Z shares many characteristics with that car and the tadpole-shaped first-generation Insight. All are two seat (2+2 in Japan and Europe), front-drive coupes with wind-cheating Kamm-back profiles and vertical rear-deck windows. All come equipped with tiny four-cylinder engines and manual transmissions, though only the Insight and CR-Z have the hybrid raison d'etre, Honda's Integrated Motor Assist system.

This powertrain is the sixth and latest iteration of the one in Honda's other two hybrids, the Civic Hybrid and Insight, and pairs a small displacement, four-cylinder engine, in this case a 1.5-liter, 16-valve single-cammer, with a brushless DC motor positioned in place of the flywheel. The 10-kilowattmotor/generator pulls double duty, helping accelerate the CR-Z and capturing kinetic energy in a 100-volt nickel metal hydride battery during braking and coasting.
 
Engine and motor combine to deliver 122 horsepower and 128 pound-feet of torque (123 pound-feet on CVT-equipped models), making the CR-Z the most powerful hybrid in Honda's lineup, but also its least fuel efficient. With the standard six-speed manual, Honda estimates the CR-Z will achieve an EPA rating of 31 city and 37 highway mpg. With the optional continuously variable transmission, mileage improves to 36 city/38 highway mpg, but that's not great for a hybrid, especially one sprung from the loins of the original Insight, which managed a staggering 70 highway mpg (61 in 2008 parlance).

2011 Cadilac CTS-V Coupe



 
 
You don't change a formula when it works. And the Cadillac CTS-V sedan worked darn well. So with the 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe, which enters production this summer after its debut at the 2010 Detroit show, General Motors isn't straying far from its proven modus operandi. This CTS-V variant merges the bountiful abilities of the performance sedan with the coupe's unabashed design.
 
So what's different? Beyond losing two doors, the CTS-V Coupe shrinks in length and height by 2 inches compared to the sedan. It shares the sedan's 113.4-in. wheelbase, but its rear track is about an inch wider. Cadillac says the Coupe's sleek shape and slightly lower mass ensures "a similarly high level of performance."

The requisite CTS-V bodywork dons the Coupe's nose and tail. Additions include a larger grille that doubles air intake, says GM, a bulge in the hood that makes room for the supercharger, and a center-mounted exhaust with two outlets poking out the back. The rest of the details come from the standard CTS Coupe, including the touch-pad actuated doors, a dramatically angled windshield (62.3 degrees), a near horizontal rear window, vertical tail lamps with LEDs, a center lamp that acts as a rear spoiler, and the absence of a conventional B-pillar.

New 2011 BMW 740i/740Li




Straight-six power is making a return to the U.S.-spec 2011 BMW 7 Series with its 740i and 740Li models, which will bow at the 2010 Detroit show. Housing the German automaker's twin-turbocharged, direct-injection 3.0L inline-six engine under the hood, the new 7 Series variant will output 315 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque (15 hp and 30 lb-ft more than in the 335i) when it hits showrooms next spring.

2011 Audi A8


We haven't the slightest clue what a "wellness lounge" might be, but it sure sounds like a better place to spend time than in the "pestilence antechamber."

The interior of the upsized 2011 Audi A8 is described by company literature as a wellness lounge for the senses and we cannot disagree for the reason stated above. In any case, it sure does look nice.

This is an area in which Audi has long embarrassed the more successful full-size luxury sedans offered by its competition. For at least the last two generations, the Audi A8 has had an effortlessly elegant interior in place of the Very-Serious-Command-and-Control-Center/Button-rific approach of its rivals.

Now being introduced for Europe and scheduled for release in the United States next fall as the 2011 Audi A8, the new car maintains the model's customary strengths — as in the aforementioned elegant interior and standard all-wheel drive — and then brings a little more size, a host of new electronic doodads and more LEDs than, well, something that has a whole freakin' lot of LEDs.
