Brazilian one to participate in the TT, Rafael Paschoalin ran for the first time in the Isle of Man last year, as an experiment, and now plans to new heights: be on the podium in ten years. The pilot has the support of Yamaha also other evidence of street motorcycling, as the NorthWest 200.

Jeep Cherokee in the most extreme Adventure tracks in the world

Jeep Cherokee Adventure

Jeep Invitation to Travel. What matters most to you: ends or the means? Surely achieve a goal is something outstanding, it makes you feel good, inflated ego, ready for another. But the means are much of the enjoyment of coming to an end. It is the media that you learn, falls, matures, try again, do best ... A track off-road is a good example of where the means are cooler than the end, or, more than that, which means They are "The" end - in the case is to have fun overcoming obstacles. Attend the Jeep Experience 2015 made me go back and find the part of the media that made me get where I am and who I am today. It does off-road in Moab, USA, in the midst of one of the most challenging rocky chains in the world, was a distant dream for a 18 year old kid who was entering automotive journalism through the gate off-road. We were in 2000 and 4 × 4 magazine & Co. was basically the bible of the off-roader: addition to the publication itself, the editor of events gathered a huge group of passionate with their preparations jipões, all with the magazine's adhesive.

Jeep Cherokee Adventure

Our Cherokee Trailhawk had no adhesive, only one paper on the windshield with the word "Brazil". Chosen because of the color, a solid gray that blends nicely with the trilheiro estilão this release. The ability to evil ways is stamped on the face: high ground height, pneuzões marshes, steel chest and anchor points exposed in front and behind (these hooks in red in the picture above). This version has leaves like plant, prepared by whatever comes. 

Jeep Cherokee Adventure

Despite the appearance potboiler, comfort there is nothing to luxurious version Limited (see complete test). Joining off-road with luxury is nothing new (the Range Rover was doing it in the 1970s), but in these times of allergic crossovers to land, it is still exciting to find a real SUV, ready for real tracks, and not whose biggest challenge is to find place in front of the school children.

Jeep Cherokee Adventure

In the five years I worked in the 4 × 4 & Cia, and I followed several trails throughout Brazil, but never seen anything like this here. We are in the suggestive "Hell's Revenge" (Revenge of Hell), a jumble of huge boulders to look just like that of the roadrunner design ("Beep" "Beep") that escapes the coyote. Other references are the Indiana Jones films and the Last Crusade, or the harrowing 127 hours with six Oscar nominations. On the first climb hell longer intimidates. A narrow, sloping rock where the only guide are the rubber marks left on the ground. 4 × 4 traction, reduced and electronic locking rear differential case, the Cherokee Sport reveals a skilled climber, but look out the side window scares: A hesitation toward and that steel armor of two tons plummets ravine below with us in. Just tweak "Moab off-road crash" on YouTube and you'll understand what I'm saying.

Jeep Cherokee Adventure

The subidona the stone was just the first of many during the path 6.5 miles (10.5 km). But our car seems to have been developed exactly in this place - and it was the same: the Hell's Revenge is one of the challenges that the Jeeps have to meet to receive the "Trail Rated" seal. Impressive as the input angles (29,8º), central (23,3º) and output (32,1º) give the job done even in the deepest trenches - in some it seems that if there was one degree less the front bumper Whole shave. The span is also convincing, 22.1 cm, although they are inevitable some stone strokes under the car during the adventure. But we have to give a discount because all the way not seen an original car even: they were Hummers H1 (those for military use), Jeeps Wranglers levantadões and giant tires, highly prepared cages and even a small Suzuki Samurai armed to the teeth . And the people there in the comfort of air conditioning, the soft suspension and posting pictures on Facebook by Wi-Fi media center ...

Jeep Cherokee Adventure

More important in this hell is strength. Ramps with frightening slope, those in which you only see the hood and the sky, and down where you are hanging the seat belt are the main course menu. We turn on the 4 × 4 traction reduced at the trailhead and were only disable it to return to the asphalt. We also use the rear lock (which leaves each wheel with 25% strength) and Rock (Rock) mode drive system - which adopts a schedule of specific gear changes, basically using the first and second reduced. Another valuable feature is the electronic control descents (HDC), in which the ESP gives pulses the brakes through the ABS and secure the car on the steepest slopes. But I confess that it made the thing means "easy." For a little more excitement, dismissed the use of most of the time (except when the slope was huge and there were many stone steps in between) and was controlling the first reduced and brake. But if it had rained, the HDC would be essential. The lack of rain did not mean, however, no mud on the trail. Several times true cross flooded formed between the rocks, large pools with plenty of jagged, which required caution and take accelerator. Another test for the Cherokee, this time for sealing the doors, which proved to be perfect, without leaving even get a drop of water. The Jeep ensures that the model is capable of up to 50.8 cm immersion smoothly with air intake or electrical work. After a few hours of torture (for the car), we arrive at a fantastic plateau on top of a mountain for lunch. The menu had sandwiches with cherry-coke, cookies and a beautiful view of the cliff at 1,750 meters altitude.

The trip back did not mean relief in hard times: what was ascent became cliff and it was turned down wall ahead. Always with the 4 × 4 reduced traction, the Cherokee was practically a tractor with its 3.2-liter V6, which had 32.2 Nm of torque required quite on track. The exchange nine marches, usually mild in trade, it means harsh with the use of reduced giving leaps in changes. As for the 271 horsepower, they were in halter - on track almost did not use high speed, and on the road, well, try to accelerate in the US and see a police car come up where you least expect. After nearly eight hours behind the wheel, I confess that the warm Cherokee leather seat was not so comfortable as well. My back has asked for a pit-stop when we got to camp overnight. There was only choose a tent (which fortunately the staff of the Jeep had already mounted), changing clothes (without the right to bath) and enjoy dinner at the mouth of the cave, entitled to country music on the guitar.

Jeep Cherokee Adventure

Awakening the next morning came the sound of trumpets at Camp sound system. It was time to get ready (bath would only come at the hotel later ...) and swallow a breakfast because soon we were already running at "Wind Caves", a kind of high desert (with altitude ranging from 1128 to 2195 meters) that is in one of the last areas relatively "virgin" between Utah and Colorado. While not as radical as the trail the previous day, we face a very technical way, with lots of rocks and sand, resulting in an environment of millions of years of erosion and sedimentation. Interesting to note that although there are many loose stones in the mountains, not even seen a rolling hill. If there was still any doubt about the valor and the Cherokee Trailhawk capacity, the second day sealed the issue with a flawless presentation of the model, without hesitation even in challenging stone steps. When they finally emerged the asphalt and the comfort of the hotel bed, just came to mind the question I used the text from the beginning: the end is good, but there is no doubt that it is the medium that makes it worth the trip!

Audi A4 in 2016 reveals more technology and up to 120 kg lighter

Audi A4 in 2016

New AUDI Car 2016. As was announced last week, Audi presents on Monday (29) the new generation of the A4 in Germany. Revealed in sedan and station wagon versions (both with simultaneous arrival on the market), the model incorporates the developments brought about by recent launches such as the Q7 and the TT, and promises energy efficiency up to 21% higher than the current line levels. The brand claims to be a reference in the category, but competition consists of Mercedes C-Class, BMW 3 Series and Jaguar XE should not give truce.

Audi A4 in 2016

According to Audi, the new Audi A4 is the most economical, safe and technological produced today. In addition, the drag coefficient of only 0.23 is announced as the best among the average luxury sedans. Despite the efficiency, the dimensions have grown: now are 4.72 meters long (4.70 against the current) and 2.82 meters of wheelbase (at 2.80 meters). The width also increased by 2 cm (total of 1.84 meters), but the height was maintained at 1.42 meters. In the trunk the sedan takes 480 liters and the van 505 l.

Audi A4 in 2016

The interior follows the external news, with many advances in comparison to the current cabin. Right away, technological highlight is fully digital instrument board similar to the new TT, with 12.3-inch screen. On top of the panel to 8-inch screen home entertainment system, operated via a rotary controller positioned ahead of the gear lever. Surfaces coated in leather and aluminum details also draw attention.

Audi A4 in 2016

The adoption of the MLB Evo platform possible weight reduction of 120 kilograms, with direct consequences on the dynamics and performance. Under the hood, range will consist of four- and six-cylinder diesel and gasoline engines. The starting propellant is a 1.4 TFSI 150 hp, followed by a 2.0 TFSI (190 or 252 hp), a 2.0 TDI diesel (150 or 190 hp) and 3.0 TDI (218 or 272 hp). Furthermore, the Avant body will have a g-tron variant with 2.0 TFSI engine 170 hp powered by compressed natural gas.

Audi A4 in 2016

The exchange standard is a six-speed manual transmission, newly developed and about 16 kg lighter than the previous transmission. Optionally is offered the S-Tronic seven-speed exchange, replacing the current CVT. The 3.0 TDI model, however, has exclusive rights to use the eight-speed automatic transmission, which has also undergone a number of revisions. Traction is front with the quattro system being offered as an option.

Audi A4 in 2016

Replacement of the 1.8 TFSI engine used today, the block 1.4 TFSI promises acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 8.9 seconds, consumption of 20.4 km / l (21% more efficiency). Since the propellant 2.0 TFSI, Audi treated as "revolutionary", ensures acceleration in 7.3 seconds, consumption of 20.8 km / l. In both cases the figures take into account the versions equipped with S-Tronic exchange and front wheel drive. Source;

Volvo S60 Drive-E 245 hp Benchmark

Volvo S60 Drive-E 245 hp Benchmark

Volvo S60 Drive-E 245 hp - the new benchmark in its price range? Let's dispense with the antipasto and go straight to the cut of meat: with the privilege to invest about $ 45,425 thousand in the desire to bring a German sedan home, the options that appear on the menu are tasty but relatively light. Audi A3 Sedan Environment (1.8 turbo, 170 hp), BMW 320i GP (2.0 turbo, 184 hp) and Mercedes-Benz C180 (1.6 turbo, 156 hp).

New versions and the visual redesigned (bumpers, wheels and tailpipes) are the line novelty 2015. Engine 2.0 turbo, 245 hp at 5,500 rpm, 35.7 mkgf of torque between 1,500 and 4,800 rpm, automatic transmission and eight-speed filling equipment and build quality equal or superior to rivals. Is at least scratching his chin, right? This is the dilemma in which we find ourselves out of the white leather-lined cabin of this discreet Swedish.

Modular muscles
The new Drive-E engines arrived extremely discreetly, just under a year in our market, in T5 versions of the Volvo V60, S60 and XC60 - few people know that this change occurred (formerly the line used the 2.0 Ecoboost, derived from Ford) and, most importantly, the difference this power train brought the vehicle was enormous.

The Drive-E is a modular engine family, sharing between different versions of different powers the same block, crankshaft, oil pan, oil pump and aggregates (such as the air conditioning compressor), and bring preparation for work with future hybrid systems. Thus, the names T4, T5 and T6 fail to describe the amount of cylinders and begin to refer to the power range: T4 from 181 hp T5 from 245 hp T6 and from 306 hp.

Volvo S60 Drive-E 245 hp Benchmark

The 2.0 Drive-E is 22 kg lighter than the Ecoboost and is quite sophisticated. Has head and aluminum block with cast iron shirts (with special treatment for friction reduction), use a synthetic oil developed in partnership with Castrol (specification 0w20), brings resized lubrication galleries, housing the integrated turbine the exhaust manifold , camshafts variables with small diameter bearings and pump electric water run on demand. Furthermore, it was introduced to start-stop function (which comes into action shortly before a full stop), and Eco + programming that changes the mapping of the accelerator, turbine pressure injection and ignition and reprograms the new automatic gearbox - the Geartronic, Aisin eight gears (the previous generation was six), which can be actuated manually by butterflies behind the wheel.

The Geartronic Volvo introduces the Coasting function, which helps a lot to reduce consumption and to increase the feeling of comfort to decouple the transmission on slopes in soft or without acceleration times local plans. These situations are detected by the sensors and accelerometers of the vehicle and make him walk looser at a walking pace, with much less mechanical strength.

Translating the gain in numbers: over the old 2.0 Ecoboost, there was a gain of 5 hp and 10% torque (whose peak reaches 300 rpm before the former), acceleration 0-100 km / h fell 1.2 s - 7.5 s to 6.3 s -, consumption and improved in accordance with Volvo, up to 20%. The Inmetro numbers are 8 km / l in the city and 12.5 km / l on the road. Important to remember that not only was the engine: the new transmission with two gears and the most chilled programming, were essential to improve efficiency.

Both the sedan S60 as the V60 wagon are structured in good EUCD platform Ford (derived from the C1 Focus). This second generation was presented in 2010 - S60 at the Geneva and V60 in Paris - and although they bear five years back and two facelifts counting on this latest, the design follows scoring with his identity, fluidity and refinement.

Check the color table below. The cabin offers five combinations of black, beige and gray. Panel and black floor, with benches and beige ceiling. Interior all black, but with beige seats. Interior all black with gray ceiling. Interior all beige. Interior all black.

Volvo S60 T5 Kinetic: digital dual zone air conditioning with rear vents in columns B, bi-xenon headlights with active directional beam and signature on LEDs, alloy wheels Rex 17 "leather seats with electric adjustment for the driver (three memories), six airbags, engine start button, start-stop system, sound system with eight speakers and multimedia 7 "screen with DVD player, rear parking sensors and crepuscular.

All cars bring the Volvo On Call, protection service, support and convenience that enables remote locking, auto tracking, auto attendant in accidents and, via application, allows the owner to receive in his diary cell board, maintenance notifications and who commands some functions, such as ignition (for pre-air conditioning) and remote control locks.

It is true that the concept of the booth already denounced certain age, notably the relatively flat and compartmentalized panel with one large central island full of buttons and almost 30 keys. But if the issue is quality and refinement then the conversation changes dramatically: all plastics are of good quality, the type soft touch everywhere, with a beautiful grain and matte finish, preventing reflections on the windshield. More smooth and soft, leather is better than the models presented in the German entry, and if evaluated this unit, the steering wheel in two-tone finish gives an extra touch of refinement. And the sound insulation is worthy of a Mercedes-Benz.

Ergonomically, the Swede is second to none BMW: driving position quite low, huge range of adjustment on the steering column (you can leave the wheel well near the breast, style stock car), exchange fins perfectly positioned (note the photo down the rubberized coating on the back). Although the precise commands, the load of the drives (pedals, steering wheel) is gentle, consistent with the quality of comfort in Shooting.

Below is the sport of the cluster configuration (digital whole, TFT): it shows the tachometer as the main instrument and a digital speedometer in the middle, and satellites as the temperature of the cooling system and power graph available that rotation. In particular, the ceiling console with lighting drives, ceiling and Volvo On Call.

Volvo S60 Drive-E 245 hp Benchmark

The cabin caters well to five adults with 1.80m, but it's observation that the passenger means to deal with the high tunnel. The rear seat back is in a very comfortable slope and, as icing on the cake, the rear vents are in columns B - the standard solution is to position them at the back of the center console, limiting the freshness (after all, the cold air sinks) . The S60-trunk offers 380 liters, just for its size - the Audi A3 Sedan, for example, offers 425 liters and the new Class C, 480 liters.

It is rather strange the first time you crush the gas pedal when this S60 in sports dynamic programming. With this unpretentious' common Volvo "face, you do not expect such a strong thrust in starts and resumed: the zero to 100 km / h it edge six seconds flat - that's BMW 328i time and up there in half a second faster the C250 Sport! It bears repeating your data: 245 horsepower at 5,500 rpm, 35.7 mkgf between 1,500 and 4,800 rpm. It is very torque: playing with him on winding stretches outlined in 2nd and 3rd gear, he was always on the traction limit on curve exits.

The Drive-E engine combined with the new eight-speed exchange brought a whole new life to S60, who suddenly finds herself as the sole leader in terms of performance in its price category. To give you an idea, the zero to 100 km / h declared the Audi A3 1.8 is 8.3 s, the BMW 320i, 7.3 is the Mercedes-Benz C180, 8.5 s - 6.3 s, Volvo is in the comfortable position of being at least $ 50,000 cheaper than its equivalent competitors in acceleration.

Although the batter, the use silk gloves S60: his comfort grip is softly all commands (the load of the steering system is adjustable in three levels), absorption capacity irregularities and faults in the exceptional conditions a hell soundproofing and feel free shooting at a walking pace, with little resistance to movement, thanks to the exchange coasting system.

The transmission is extremely smooth running and behavioral reading almost telepathic driver and nothing owes the ZF 8HP, which equips the models of BMW and Jaguar. At the time of driving sportily, we only hesitation in that classic of automatic reductions: call short speed above 4,000 rpm does not roll here.

Volvo S60 Drive-E 245 hp Benchmark

The platform derived from the Focus because it is low, wide and be well shod with a set of Michelin Pilot Sport 3 235/40 R18, Volvo has plenty of lateral acceleration capacity, but does not have the same agility to change direction of the A3 Sedan let alone the BMW 3 Series, which beyond any dynamic tradition of the brand, has rear-wheel drive, which naturally tends to deliver better grip (the front axle steers the rear pulls). Depending on the stretch where you are, will sorrow to follow the Germans (especially the bimmer), even with all the strength difference. Swedish is Massudo with 1664 kg. Nevertheless, the efficiency of the engine showed service: in mixed city-highway use, got an average of 11.5 km / l.

Maturity may be the best term to define who this guy is. If the age of the platform brings some disadvantages such as the higher weight and the design does not exactly on the cutting edge, it also means that it has been developed as much as possible (yes, it is natural that components evolve and change during the product cycle, as bushings, terminals, welds and reinforcements - not to mention in ECUs). And that it was a major drawback, the powertrain has been fully overcome the point of reversing the rules of the game: on the road, the Swedish master turned the man to beat.

He has nothing new face, the multimedia system is not simple to use, yes, it's front wheel drive (such as A3 Sedan) and its discrete and elegant lines, but manjadas are not the magnet looks at the business center or at the door restaurant - which, depending on your profile, it is a quality.

But by the time you experience this redesigned S60, analyzes its finish, tasting the hell thrust engine, sees energy efficiency and begin to do the math, it's pretty hard to refute the title of best value in its class. He is so powerful that it is surely the best option among its competitors to be shielded. It is true that the reputation of higher costs in the Volvo aftermarket is a factor that plays against, including the perception of resale. However, the advantages that this set is delivering are so great that ends up paying off. This is one typical car that enchants you use in the real world, not in the showroom.

Like every Volvo, there is no intention to turn the market upside down. And he could not. The S60 has the same youthful appeal of the Audi does not have the same status as Mercedes-Benz, and even as a Roadster rocket, do not have that sharp cutting edge of the BMW does have so many fanboys. Many will dismiss by the resteau face d'Onte the body and the panel and most do not know how the product has changed with this new powertrain.

Then it is reserved for a specific audience, that lays less weight in the novelty factor and apparent boldness. It is like that delicious restaurant that few people know. And there's the van option.

Video, Insane! Kawasaki Ninja H2R reaches 331 km / h in street circuit

Insane! Kawasaki Ninja H2R reaches 331 km / h in street circuit

This is awesome! Kawasaki Ninja H2R reaches 331 km / h in street circuit. Since the launch of the new Kawasaki Ninja H2R, in October last year, a lot of expectation around the motorcycle equipped with a 998 cc engine four-cylinder was generated, liquid-cooled, with mechanical compressor (supercharger). And it was no wonder, since the "hiperesportiva" Japanese delivering 300 horsepower in the R version - more than a World MotoGP prototype.

The manufacturer did not disclose more specific technical data of the model as acceleration times and maximum speed, but that was no problem for the rider James Hillier, who managed to reach the incredible speed of 331 km / h with a Kawasaki Ninja H2R in Island Man.

During a sort of "return demonstration," Hillier picked up the bike supercharged to 331 km / h, setting a new speed record for the fastest bike on a closed public road. In fact, if you look at the video more closely at about 20 seconds, you may notice the speedometer showing more than 210 mph (337 km / h), which means that the actual rate may be even higher.

"It was insane, just insane," said Hillier. "The first four marches go very fast, like a flash, and the acceleration is a crazy thing," the pilot.

Honda launches RC213V-S superesportiva for 188,000 euros [$184,000 in the US]. Honda announced on Thursday (11) the arrival of the awaited superesportiva RC213V-S, a street version of the RC213V used by official drivers of the HRC (Honda Racing Corporation), Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa in the MotoGP World Championship. The public suggested price RC213V-S in the United States, will be $ 184,000.

The motorcycle launch event was held at the Circuit de Catalunya, Spain, venue of the next stage of the most important category of world motorcycling, scheduled for this weekend.

The start of sales is scheduled for October this year, with marketing directed only to the European market, the United States, Japan and Australia. From 13 July, interested parties may express an interest in purchasing the template on your hot site.

The lines and the sporty look of the RC213V-S were inspired by the runway version used in MotoGP, with some components being exactly the same in both versions. This is the case of the diamond type frame, identical to that used by the RC213V of Marc Marquez. The motorcycle has artisan production restricted to a daily unit is equipped with a DOHC engine 999 cm³ V4 with cooling liquid of 159 horsepower at 11,000 rpm and torque of 10.4 Nm at 10,500 rpm. The exchange rate is six-speed and the final transmission made by chains.

The RC213V-S will be available in single tricolor option, made up of three colors: red, white and blue. One new feature is the possibility motorcycle can be purchased also unpainted for further customization of the client. There will also be a special sports kit that brings the version of the model of the tracks and enables its use in closed circuits and competitions. With this model the performance reaches 215 horsepower at 13,000 rpm with torque of 12.1 Nm at 10,500 rpm.

SsangYong Tivoli: The new SUV from Korea

SsangYong Tivoli: The new SUV from Korea

Expanding the model range by an attractive styled Subkompakt SUV. If a car brand has long existed, still with us but is rather unknown, then the manufacturer has a problem: He sells no cars here. And so the situation SsangYongs addiction is with us fairly drab constitutes. One namely by sales, founded in Seoul in 1954 company, the gaze until far down the table, before you will find deep down yet. And amazed notes that SsangYong has sold in the first few months exactly 16 pieces of Korando, Rexton and Rodius. Gives a market share of 0.01 percent marginal.

Little wonder that SsangYong thus far from satisfactory and is vigorously working on expanding the shocking low level of awareness. To be possible the rise of the grim approval in the serene south-north market share with the Tivoli, a model that is located in the rapidly growing segment of the subcompact SUV and named after the town near Rome.

Pretty Car Design
SsangYong was previously known for quirky and bizarre design sins in the style of the former or the Rodius Actyon old who managed to regularly among the top 10 of the ugliest cars in the world, the Tivoli precipitated massenkompatiblem styling. Flared wheel arches, taut flanks and stringy-harmonious proportions radiate much visual energy, the car looks from all angles modern, youthful and dynamic. A major advance over earlier times, no question. Also inside there's besides the adjustable only in height Volant no reason for criticism: seats, the architecture of the instruments and processing are perfectly who does not know that this is a SsangYong, could easily come up with the idea in a Hyundai sit.

Only gasoline, then diesel
On the drive side is from mid-June launch only a front-wheel drive 1.6 petrol engine with 128 PS and 6-speed manual or optional 6-speed automatic transmission to the debate. End of September, a variant with all-wheel drive and the 1.6-liter diesel with 115 hp is then submitted. First kilometers at the wheel of the new Tivoli reveal three things: First, an unnecessarily hard-tuned suspension, the Staßenunebenheiten extremely dry and hard passes on to the Tivoli occupants.

Secondly, the petrol indeed shines with enough temper, but demands - with a maximum torque of 160 Newton meters at late 4600 tours hardly surprising - for high speeds. But then the 4-cylinder is noisy and gives the impression that he is very hard conducts the work. Third: Despite an exterior length of just 4.19 meters, see the rear passengers before surprisingly opulent space conditions. Prices are ausgeschnapst degree, the entrance fee to the new Tivoli World is but at about € 15.000.

Honda Civic Tourer final balance

Honda Civic Tourer final balance

One year with the Honda Civic Tourer final balance after a year with the especially developed for Europe space miracle. So often does that happen not. Especially not in the wake of globalization of car models that are to be used as possible worldwide in almost unaltered form in the service of cost. And certainly not that it is precisely a Japanese manufacturer, the heart takes to develop specifically for Europe a model.

The combination of the Civic is therefore an Exotic in the portfolio of Honda, the one or sold in Japan in the United States. After a year with the Civic Tourer 1.6-liter diesel engine it can be said that love him is to detail its developers noted positively. Their mission is to study the specific preferences of European customers for station wagons and diesel engines as closely as possible and to work for the best solutions, they have mastered brilliantly.

This show all these chapters relevant entries in the logbook. Hooked has it then rather on issues such as assistance electronics, service or material selection. So areas that have been adopted for the combination of the existing Civic.

The depth of field
The most formative impression for almost 35,000 km through one year in any case of a load space miracle. This is mainly because it can implement the impressive load capacity values ​​into practice. It starts with the cellar compartment under the luggage compartment floor, which is not the same where credit card height, but full-blown Boxes swallows (which may contain anything from family care with Styrian apple juice to champagne annual ration in farm-gate sale). And it ends with the flip-up "Magic Seats" in the 2nd row, which the easy stowage of bulky cargo was due

An also very positive impression left by the diesel engine. Not only the real consumption average over the test distance of 5.6 liters for 100 kilometers ultimately speaks for him (sections ranged even pure 5 liters). Even the fact that he, despite full cast and -load never overwhelmed or distressed and had always excelled with good pulling power, he made a lot of friends. Hardly a lasting impression on the other hand, leaving the possibility of adjusting the hardness of the rear cushion push of a button.

Ambivalent interior was evaluated. When the seats are still mixed reactions depending on your physical stature. Left a twelve-hour period in a drive tester neither permanent damage still bad memories (only the missing Lord pants prop was criticized), so others criticized soft padding and an account of the steeply dipping accelerator lower leg cramps promoting seating position. Common to all, however, was the lament rising over the hair and lint (and this only more difficult hergebenden) seat cover and the non stoppable breeze from the central air vents on the dashboard.

As a rather dark chapter proved in practice the well-intentioned assistance Electronics. From banal things like providing a usable only in good weather pictures reversing camera criticism over a traffic sign recognition after the lottery principle reached to an up shrinks from the reflection in the wet asphalt Collision Warning. And that the Highbeam Assi tends to dazzling of oncoming traffic, has a tendency to use all the electronic alls not well strengthened. Practical tip: do not check the driver assistance package (930 €).

Bottom line, the Honda Civic Tourer is the diesel engine a recommendation for anyone who is looking much variable loading space on this side of the SUV league with manageable size and low consumption. And with a standard fuel consumption of 103 g / km of CO2 it is even for the volatile domestic tax legislation exposed company car users future-proof. Enormous load capacity combined with compact body dimensions, agile, very economical Dieselmotor. Unripe assistant electronics, seat covers as "Lint Magnet".

When ritual final check of the motor-COURIER-endurance test candidates through the ARBÖ professionals, the embossed in the course of the Civic Tourer image of absolute reliability confirmed. The only two complaints in ARBÖ protocol are finally not blame the car. The scratches on the rear bumper paint probably go back on a too generous transmitted Einparkversuch. And the significantly eroded insulating mat in the engine compartment lid is likely to have a raccoon tasted so good, that he has not even hergemacht on the cable.

The bike of Marc Marquez

The bike of Marc Marquez

The bike of Marc Marquez for the road. Horn, turn signals and license plate: The Honda RC213V-S is the first MotoGP bike street legal. Marc Marquez won in 2013 and 2014 with his Honda RC213V not just the MotoGP World Championship - he dominated the action on the slopes and had his driving style most colleagues look old. Always at the last minute, with the elbow at the bottom of the Spaniards coined his own driving style. These two years will probably go down in history of the motorcycle World Championship. The one wants to pay homage at Honda, and adapts the RC213V for the road. The bullet gets an "S" to the name, a horn and in a number plate. From July 13, 2015 you can order the RC213V-S. More than dizzying is the price: 188,000 euros (sic!) Will cost the motorcycle. And not even the Honda seamless gear is there included.

Seamless gear falls away
The bike course also benefits from the knowledge from racing. It has, as it inherited the genes of the RC213V, including mass centralization and low friction combined with lightweight construction. The necessary changes and additions to the racing version of fall according to Honda from minimal. The focus was mainly to transfer the driving experience of the RC213V on the road version the developers. To get the power of the RC213V, is a "sport kit" available - to their colleagues to go to the race courses neatly around the ears. What was even changed? The valves are pneumatically but not conventionally controlled by springs. Developed by Honda Seamless transmission does not occur in the RC213V-S.

Anyone wishing to obtain the RC213V-S, must register on from July 13, 2015 online.

The VW Group

The VW Group

The brands are divided into four holding companies, which are to act independent and deciding. The conversion of the Volkswagen Group takes a newspaper report on concrete forms. The twelve brands of the car manufacturer should be grouped into four units, as the "Handelsblatt" reported from consolidated districts on Monday.

In addition to the already planned holding company for the truck brands VW, Skoda and Seat are to be bundled into a group. Audi will remain unchanged in charge of Lamborghini and Ducati. The luxury brands Bentley and Bugatti to associate with the sports car maker Porsche.

As surely applies to the divisional directors could decide in greater autonomy over production, marketing and sales strategy, the newspaper reported. Alternatively, there are also two other models in which, among other things Porsche and Audi are to merge into a unit.

Reuters had reported on Friday that Winterkorn had met with members of the inner leadership circle in the Braunschweig airport to discuss the restructuring of the Group. The Supervisory Board shall approve Winterkorn plans to refocus the world's second largest after Toyota Auto Group in late September. After that they should be presented to management.

VW declined to comment about the whole debate. "Rumors" says a company spokesman, "we basically do not comment".

Increase of 0.3 percent
The Volkswagen Group received notification from January to May this year, 4.20 (January-May 2014: 4.19; +0.3 percent) million vehicles delivered. "The uneven development of markets shapes the year to date. Even with their highly diversified, young and environmentally friendly model range, the Volkswagen Group brands this situation can not entirely escape, "Group Board Member for Sales Christian Klingler said in Wolfsburg on Friday. "In South America and in the single market of Russia, the market situation remains tense. Europe continues to develop in a positive direction. The new normal is meanwhile in China, where the market situation has changed as expected. "

The Porsche 919; The hybrid technology of the winning car of this year's

Porsche 919 The hybrid technology

Porsche 919: The of the Le Mans winning car technology The hybrid technology of the winning car of this year's 24 Hours of Le Mans. "By pure force to Le Mans can not win," said Wolfgang Hatz, Chief Development Officer of Porsche, on the Vienna Motor Symposium of Prof. Lenz. Rather, in this prestigious race a harmonious overall concept of the drive system, aerodynamics and lightweight construction is important.

2010 and 2011 was the 911 GT3 R Hybrid in the race, this year it is the 919 Hybrid, "we have almost found alone on the wheel," said Hatz, for this race car is also a labor of love. The total 919-Hybrid team has approximately 300 employees. For Hatz the 919 Hybrid is not only "the sum of the digits of 60 years in motorsport", but also an ideal field to test new, which then also benefits road Porsches.

Porsche 919 The hybrid technology
This experience with previous hybrid racing cars has led to the amended regulations to massive technical changes. As storage media for the hybrid car uses Porsche no longer a flywheel as the GT3 R Hybrid, but a lithium battery in the 919. The engine is a two-liter turbo gasoline engine with direct injection V4. The mono-turbocharger (Garrett) has no variable turbine geometry. The engine management system delivers Bosch. "The crankcase is not cast but machined from a block of high-strength aluminum," said Hatz. The V4 delivering more than 500 horsepower and drives via a sequential, hydraulically operated seven-speed racing transmission, the rear axle. When engine Although technologies from F1 were used, but further optimized. Hatz: "At the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the distance is driven in a single race that traverses the formula 1 in an entire season."

The V4 petrol engine has a powerful aid: The additional generator delivers more than 400 hp. He belongs to the so-called KERS for the recovery of kinetic energy and allow between four-wheel functions by the drive of the front axle. The front axle has three stages.

The Porsche has a recovery system, the "AER" ("exhaust energy recovery") - a so Hatz, "fundamentally a new system", the so insets no other manufacturer. Unlike the known from F1 E-Turbo exists between AER and performance turbocharger no mechanical connection. Rather, the AER has the function of an intelligent waste gate, it uses the energy from the exhaust gas flow split. The energy which is not necessary for the drive of the main turbocharger, drives a VTG turbine (with adjustable guide vanes). Thus, the exhaust pressure is used at low speed.

Porsche 919 The hybrid technology

The VTG turbine in turn drives the generator producing electrical energy. This is also stored in the lithium battery and is so handy when accelerating and significantly increased the overall efficiency. With the two recovery systems of the 919 Hybrid is the only in the starting field, which collects the energy from braking and under full load, stores and uses again. Is especially proud of Hatz that the performance of the two systems has been increased compared to 2014 by one-third: "No racing car is so much energy to as the 919 hybrid - neither F1 racing car yet Le Mans prototypes from other manufacturers."

A total of 919 Hybrid does more than 1,000 hp and thus replaces the only the highest energy class of racing series: In the so-called eight-megajoule class. Ie: On the 13.629 km long round in Le Mans the 919 Hybrid can consume a maximum of 4.76 liters of petrol. This is according Hatz only with an extremely efficient energy storage, the Porsche sees the self-developed lithium iron phosphate battery. These reach almost the power density (capacity) of ultracapacitors, but offer a much higher energy density (storage capacity). Cells derived from A123 (USA).

Benefits for daily life
Experience with the 919 hybrid could be used for Serial Porsche, both in internal combustion engines such as in hybrid systems, so Hatz. When gasoline engine about could also be used to increase the efficiency with charging and downsizing the exhaust gas energy. In the hybrid system of handling higher voltages and power densities and with the self-developed new electric motor. Le Mans is also an extreme endurance test for the durability of batteries: "During a Le Mans race the battery experienced more charging cycles than during the entire life of a plug-in hybrid," said Hatz.

The technology of the Audi racing cars
"Why wins Audi with 4 megajoules while Porsche and probably Toyota with 8 megajoules are traveling?", Was Ulrich Hackenberg, Chief Development Officer of Audi, asked in Vienna on the Motor Symposium of Prof. Lenz when he the Audi concept for Le Mans presented, the way directly to Wolfgang Hatz of Porsche (see above). Hackenberg: "So far we are very satisfied." It was not just about as much power as the race car, "you can be very fast with other measures. It's just not only the engine but the entire system."

Diesel Audi remains faithful to the concept of the diesel engine. Not only that distinguishes Audi Porsche, but also the number of cylinders. Audi relies on a 4-liter V6 TDI, which should make around 560 hp. Audi is not only the first manufacturer to win Le Mans with a diesel engine, but this year also the only one who uses diesel. For this purpose, an electric motor comes with more than 272 hp, which drives the front wheels. "The in relation to competitors relatively low power of the motor-generator unit results from the smaller weight latitude which is available to the diesel," said Hackenberg.

Audi has a special connection to the diesel, since 1989, the first TDI with electronic engine management of Audi came, "driven by Ferdinand Piëch," says Hackenberg in Vienna. He also remembered the initial skepticism among their own technicians. Because when Piëch, at that time Audi boss, she asked which one of them a TDI as "personal company car", or "PD", ride, showed only a very few. Hackenberg: "That has not actually changed, as the PD with TDI were faster in Wolfsburg (Note in the VW Group's headquarters.), Because they did not have to recharge." Hackenberg said he was optimistic that there would in future be even greater diversity of TDI on the Motor Symposium.

Hybrid even with a hybrid system Audi had for "the easiest technology" decided a flywheel accumulator, ie those memory to which Porsche sat earlier. Its flywheel of 8 kg is revved up to 40,000 trips. The stored kinetic energy is when accelerating again summed up the driving power.

Complex "The current Audi R18 e-tron quattro, making it the most complex race cars we've ever developed," said Hackenberg. "Motorsport is the hardest test field for the series. No one followed the intense as Audi," said Hackenberg. Many Audi debuts in Le Mans (TFSI turbo direct injection gasoline engine, lithium-ion batteries, Matrix LED headlight, laser light) are now in series. And the cost, solely with the drive? "The most expensive racing engine is the one who does not win."

The Range Rover Sport Hybrid Test

Test Range Rover Sport Hybrid

The first British luxury-climbers, which also has an electric motor on board. The initial contact was added far more spectacular. The first kilometers in a Range Rover hybrid led the author at the wheel of a prototype - not destroyed by the earthquake - adventurous streets of Kathmandu in Nepal to Delhi in India.

Meanwhile, developed by Land Rover even diesel hybrid technology has arrived in everyday life and is also in the Range Rover Sport is available. And despite all the alleged Chaotik in domestic traffic flow, the driving experience can not compare this country with the on Indian roads. Although the use of one narrow garages spindle with the two meter wide Range Rover Sport is a challenge. After all, can this special graduate with a bit of luck in pure electric mode - to the amazement of other garage users who surprised the whispering giant.

Fortunately one of them, because the driver can not deliberately influence the charge status of the electric motor battery powering. When the system has operated too much in the garage on the electric-thrust from the entrance, just continues the V6 diesel. If the battery is just fully, it can be accessed by pressing the button for the pure electric mode. However, the system requires only very gentle foot on the accelerator and for a few hundred yards. If more propulsion demanded, the Nitro is back.

Test Range Rover Sport Hybrid

Behind this method. For the driver, the Range Rover Sport Hybrid simply provides more upbeat than the V6 diesel is not only that it reaches the acceleration values ​​of the V8 diesel, it also provides the same amount of torque available -. And starting at 1500 cycles. This results in an agility that you would not trust the nearly 2.4-ton colossus.

And with fuel consumption figures that could also hardly expect from a Range Rover in real life outside the norm consumption world. A practice-section of 8.8 liters of diesel in mixed operation is impressive in this league.

Not least because in hybrid Land Rover does not mean that you divide the drive of the two axes between Nitro and electric motor in order to arrive at an inexpensive all-wheel drive. Here you get the full package included the SUV expertise of the British. Whose qualities could be namely on the tangent not fathom, the Nepalese use but more so.
