He Volkswagen Golf remains the best-selling model today throughout Europe. Like his brother, the Audi A3, the new Golf (always one of the most anticipated cars of the year) will have a evolution in two phases: first, in this 2016, a slight renewal; and then, in 2018, a future generation, in this case the eighth. Here we stop, because it will be showing greater evolution. Mechanically, 1.4 TSI versions will give way to the new family of turbocharged petrol engines with 1.5 liter capacity, the efficiency will not only depend system cylinder shutdown. The new bases were settled for in the efficiency, lightness and safety equipment. There will be a makeover too groundbreaking, but a greater differentiation between the five-door body, which will no longer have such a small boot volume, and the rest of the range, such as family or Variant station wagon Sportsvan. There will also be new modular engine family 1.5 TDI three-cylinder with power levels between 75-120 CV. The GTD, GTi and an already rooted GTE continue making history in the Golf, while the electric range is already talk of a 50 percent additional autonomy from today.

Hyundai i30: Spring 2017

The third-generation Hyundai i30 will highlight being the first to have a version N, which is like begin to call the brand to sports variants. his engine will be the 1.6 TDGi and, almost certainly, its maximum power will be above 200 hp. At present the same engine yields 186 hp in the Turbo version of i30 and also used in the Veloster. Outwardly the front It will closely resemble the current i40. On the side we must mention the darkened trim connecting the gate with glass rear door, the style of the current i20.

Volvo works at peak performance. With the newly updated high-end saloon format (S90) and SUV (XC90), It is now up to the other extreme. The next step is staging a V40 new generation of compact and unpublished derivatives XC40 and C40. To do this, Volvo has developed a modular platform to accommodate all these different variants ... and more. They say the mark with CMA new platform will reduce development time to 20 months, when the current V40 needed 42 in 2012. The new platform shared with the top SPA S90 and XC90 of much of its cutting-edge technology. This means that the future will have its relevant version V40 Twin Engine, which it is called Volvo as its new hybrids.

BMW 1 SeriesBMW 1 Series: 2017-2018

He Future BMW 1 Series will resemble structurally and his cousin dimensions Mini. It will change a lot. BMW want to leave gaps in future models-and now that Mini has entered in the compact segment with the new Clubman- and will do just the opposite with its 1 Series 3 and 5 doors. It will be somewhat smaller, not so much as an Audi A1 (less than 4 meters), but very close to the 4.25 meters long the new Mini. Therefore, the Series 2 will from now on a long journey and many surprises up his sleeve ... and under the skin. Because it will be the 1 Series model to yield to the practical rigors of technicians. The front-drive platform Mini will therefore base supporting the new baby of the brand with a size / habitability better than the current relationship. Farewell to propulsion, but without loss of good feelings. The shorter length does not mean less battle in the future 1 Series, which will carry a more advanced command post. Engines 3 and 4 cylinder gasoline and diesel, with block 1.5 liters different power levels for the initial versions, and 2.0 liters top end, will form the conventional offer. And there will be variant high performance MPerformance. It will continue to have all-wheel drive and 8-speed automatic transmission.

Mercedes Class A: 2018

The next generation of compact Mercedes (W117 in internal code) will revolve around the premiere of a new modular platform, which will further exploit the flexibility to which the segment is provided. And, with it, becoming much more technology and much less weight to the new Class A. The industrial and technological revolution will be, because the designs will color only, in view of the current success. Among the many bodies that mark the star offered in this category, You will not miss a daring Shooting Brake, because we know that Mercedes designers bet for a new even more exclusive variant, only two side doors. Among the variants derived from Class A, CLA, for example, evolve line conventional hatchback with three volumes currently presenting to a coupé-style silhouette over four doors. Moreover, the development team of the brand is considering all technical requirements will require a Unpublished Class Cabrio. Men AMG develop their own sports from the future Class A, which will be a direct rival to the Audi TT.

by Comments Off on Jaguar XF 2015: video, photos and data of the second generation
qualitative and quantitative leap that makes Jaguar XF with 2015, the second generation of its premium midsize sedan. In its technical genes, it highlights the massive use of aluminum and a clear commitment to technology.Jaguar XF 2015: pictures and data of the second generationJaguar XF 2015: pictures and data of the second generationJaguar XF 2015: pictures and data of the second generationJaguar XF 2015: pictures and data of the second generation

2015 looks set to be the year of the saloons for Jaguar. The resounding and unprecedented premiere of the new XE-its access model to compete against rivals such as the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series and Mercedes C-Class will have its continuity with the staging of the new generation -the second- of the XF.

The arrival on the market of Jaguar XF 2015 It will occur along the autumn, but first you will have a prominent role in the New York Hall -It is held from 1 to April 12 in the Great apple. The first and most important quality of new XF found in their genes, since the mass use Aluminum (same as him XE) In its construction will direct consequence an important weight reduction, to the point that the British firm ensures that the XF II is up to 80 kg lighter than its direct competitors. Namely, 75 percent of the components of the new XF will be manufactured in such a lightweight and durable material, allowing in turn be up 190 kg lighter than the previous XF.

The lightness of the new XF is not its only virtue, because in structural terms has also been able to optimize its aerodynamics, running to declare a drag coefficient Cx of only 0.26 (Before 0.29). And we know, the sum of aerodynamic lightness + directly impacts both agile handling and lower fuel consumption. In fact, the group brand Tata Motors announces an average expenditure of 3,9 l / 100 km and a level of emissions 104 g / km CO2 for release 2.0 Diesel 163 hp 38.74 mkg power and torque.

Interior Jaguar XF second generationFull illumination LED headlights and taillights new XF, the first Jaguar car incorporating this technology.

Between 163 and 380 hp

The ultra-efficient diesel engine Ingenium from 163 hp mentioned will be followed by a 2.0 180 hp and 43.84 mkg of torque. Both four-cylinder diesel blocks may be combined with either a six-speed manual transmission as an automatic eight-speed. It will crown the supply of diesel by 3.0 V6 biturbo 300 hp and 71.38 mkg of torque.

For those who prefer the gasoline, he XF 2015 It will be available with three alternatives: one tetracilíndrico 2.0i 240 hp turbo and supercharged compressor 3.0 V6 340 and 380 hp.

Almost identical in size

Metro in hand, the second generation Jaguar XF It is only 7 mm shorter and lower 3 mm, while the data does change significantly is on the distance between axis, with a increased 5.1 cm to total 2.96 m. This modification by the redesign of the interior are based, as Jaguar, for the XF step forward in terms of greater space for the occupants, especially in free space for legs and knees.

Jaguar XF second generationChassis changes

Jaguar promises balanced behavior with the right amount of comfort, agility and refinement aboard the new XF. First, the front suspension has a deformable parallelogram scheme, while the hindquarter Integral Link rear suspension is mounted. These changes have to join a suitable weight distribution of 50 percent axis.

The electric power steering and the passive damping system They are also key genes XF. For those who wish to vary settings of springs and dampers, it may use the system Adaptive Dynamics, while drivers who want to fully customize your car's dynamism can 'play' with alternative device configurable Dynamics, with individual choice of the operating parameters of the suspension, steering, the engine and the response time of the automatic transmission.

Versions permanent AWD They can count on the system Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD), with the role of torque distribution to the rear axle is raw. And in very extreme low grip conditions, can become operational technology All-Progress Control Surface, which automatically controls the brakes and accelerator-the driver only needs to steer the wheel.

Technology, technology blessed

In a car that wants to belong and be premium with all laws, bet without reservation by the technology it must be quite clear. After ensuring maximum dynamism, we must mention the system Torque Vectoring by Braking control torque distribution curve. In the chapter on security and driving assistants not lacking systems like Emergency braking Autonomous (AEB), assistant care-fatigue measurement, sensor traffic sign recognition, intelligent speed limiter and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with control system at low speed.


Have revealed the sale prices version of the 3.0 V6 petrol engine in two power levels and associated with all-wheel drive. On the one hand, the Jaguar XF 340 hp costs from 71,856 euros in its basic finish 'Mashed potatoes'; the cost of access becomes 75,237 euros of termination 'Prestige' of 77 739 euros in 'R-Sport' and 79,269 euros in 'portfolio'.

On the other hand, we have the top end, the XF S, with 380 hp and that part of the 81,313 euros.

In conclusion

Progress in all senses new XF, a premium saloon which it presents a good basis for German trio stand up to the BMW 5 Series, Audi A6 and Mercedes E-Class

E-HDi technology, silence idling

The start-stop will reach the HDI Diesel and Peugeot Citroen in the fall of 2010. A similar system to that used by the Citroën C2 and C3 gasoline or Class Mercedes and Smart, but this time applied to a diesel engine.The e-HDI PeugeotThe e-HDI CitroenIt will be called e-HDI. The 'e' comes from power, because it is considered that cars with this acronym are microhybrids that stop the engine at stoplights and they reboot automáticamante when you restart the move. E-HDI technology will be applied to proegresivamente all Citroen and Peugeot diesel cars, starting with the 1.6 HDI. Subsequently reach the 1.4 HDI and HDI 2.0. Consumption savings in the approved cycle are small -low 0.2 liters per 100 km (five grams of CO2 per km) - , but in actual use in congested urban traffic, boast a consumption savings of 15 percent in city. He first to arrive will be the Citroen C5 1.6 e-HDI, subsequently it applies the new Citroën C4 and C4 Picasso. In the first to receive Peugeot in 2011 they will be the future Peugeot 308 and 508, 407. There is no substitute price for these versions, which estimate that It will cost several hundred euros Further, derived from the multiple changes made. They hope, however, that savings in consumption, comfort and tax cuts for the lower CO2 emissions end up luring buyers. All the e-HDI come coupled with the elongated transmissions developments and tires with low rolling resistance. They believe that by 2012 30 percent of buyers of Citroen and Peugeot diesel will choose for e-HDi versions.microhybrids diesel stop at the traffic lights there are many on the market, but all the start-stop Diesel counted so far with a conventional starter reinforced. The e-HDI used to get up during operation 'start-stop' an outburst by belt; that is to say, 'Simply' making the car alternator reverses its direction of rotation have the e-HDI. This is achieved one silent boot. Entrecomillamos the 'just' because to make the e-HDI virtually It has revised the entire engine from head to toe.With a maximum output power of 2.2 kW (3 hp), the electric motor can not move the car, but restarts the engine in very short times, in difficult conditions 400 milliseconds, 280 milliseconds with all in favor. This results in a much less noticeable performance and more natural than other devices 'start-stop', with less noise and vibration despite being Diesel. VA 'overrun' time, so that not restarted as soon as the clutch pedal is touched to engage reverse (with which sometimes needlessly rebooted), but when the pedal being at end of travel. Sometimes restart the march and if you look at the instrument panel looks like needles rpm and speed 'wake up' at a time.

The micro hybrid PSA proposal offers an additional advantage to microhybrids reinforced starter motor (Audi, BMW, Fiat ...) which require the engine is completely stopped so that the gears can be engaged and restart. The e-HDI, with its alternator belt, You can restart if necessary with the car moving. Thus, in the e-HDI below 20 km / h if the deadlocked the engine stops it gets, so you reach the traffic lights in total silence; if it is pressed in clutch gear again put the boot seems instantaneous and gives the feeling that the engine is always ready. The e-HDI system is available with both manual gearbox and with the manual piloted. In this case it is the brake pedal which regulates the phases of engine start-stop and the motor stops just approaching the traffic light under 8 km / h.Citroen first applied in 2004 the automatic engine stop at traffic lights, with also automatic restart. A system Valeo developed soon use the Smart and later the Mercedes Class A. Apply to gasoline engines was relatively easy, it costs little and saving restart them is higher than diesel because of its higher consumption. Restarting the Diesel, however, has forced almost to rethink the entire engine, so it has taken the revision of HDI to comply with antipollution regulations Euro 5 to implant the device start-stop since the beginning of the project.e-HDI is not only a new, more powerful, able to rotate reversely to move the engine itself and to start it alternator. There are changes in the engine itself, the electronic network and control equipment is new battery, new equipment based electric booster capacitor... There are 15 suppliers involved in the car to change the acronym for e-HDI HDI.In the HDI engine, take the 'e' means changing lubrication turbo feed pump injection is changed, change the crankshaft bearings and dual-mass flywheel is incorporated, engine mounts are modified and added a choke stopped for a soft motor. There is nothing.A starter motor is designed to withstand 50,000 performances. The usual start-stop use a starter reinforced with a lifetime of 200,000 to 300,000 starts. The belt system and starter-alternator (or reversible alternator) PSA say was designed for a life of 600,000 start-ups. According to his calculations, the system could survive making six starts every minute or a half of a starter every 450 meters walk you through.PSA states that the battery will have a conventional life with a technology called tight to support the workload. To achieve this account with the help of an electrical system called eBooster, which overlaps if necessary to provide additional 5 volts if the battery 'languishing' work during hard times. eBooster is a team of capacitors, schematically similar to that feed flashes photography. The capacitors are able to supply a high electrical power for up to five consecutive starts, and architects are largely boot speed e-HDI. It is designed to last 15 years without any maintenance. Outstanding tens of seconds to recharge the capacitors, and can also do so during withholdings, accumulating enough energy regenerative braking.Investment of 300 million euros

We go from the 475 hp 911 GT3 to 500 hp the new 911 GT3 RS (+50 hp from the previous generation), extracted from atmospheric engine six-cylinder boxer and 4.0 liters.

Of course, those 500 hp in the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS They are transferred to the rear wheels that, through a automatic dual-clutch PDK seven-speed, can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in just 3.3 seconds, reach 200 km / h in 10.9 seconds and reach 322 km / h top speed. You do not get, though, or the 560 hp 911 Turbo S registration or acceleration from standstill: 3.1 seconds.

Porsche 911 GT3 RS

To achieve these figures has much to do besides power, weight This sport. Porsche has worked conscientiously on the body, with the extensive use of aluminum in combination with magnesium (Ceiling), the plastic reinforced with carbon fiber (On the hood) and other lightweight materials. Declares before the scale 1,420 kg, 10 kg less than the 911 GT3.

The sum of sportiness goes hand in hand also in the dynamic section: Integrated roll cage, new cooling elements to cope with increased mechanical power, specific ventilation ducts, new front spoiler and rear downforce to win spoiler and in the transfer of 500 hp to the ground, Variable rear differential lock through torque control vector on the rear wheels. To this we add the sports steering wheel in Alcantara interior upholstery in black and red, carbon fiber inserts and central rev counter in white.

The new Porsche 911 GT3 RS has made a turn to the legendary circuit Nordschleife in time 7 minutes and 20 seconds, a record not inconsiderable. As to prices, will reach dealerships in Spanish may at a price of 208,509 euros.

without Cars It is mainly known in the racing world. The British brand is now launched with R1, a supercar street light, with opening scissor doors and Chevrolet engine origin 6.2L V8 developing 525 hp power. All this to the rear axle through a six-speed manual transmission (In the future will feature sequential shift) to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in just 3.5 seconds and achieve 273 km / h.

Part of the secret of these benefits is in its building: tubular frame, approved by the FIA, with carbon composite body, do you declare a weight 1,100 kg. To all this we must add the 19-inch wheels alloy, sports brakes, adjustable suspensions at two positions, fuel tank style F1, sports exhaust system, electronically drop rear spoiler and, already inside, finished carbon fiber Recaro sport seats and racing harnesses.

In addition to carrying its racing experience to their road car, the British firm Without Cars also looks certain level of comfort for your future customers. To do this, inside the R1 it has elements of equipment like air conditioning, dashboard and center console with customizable buttons, multifunction steering wheel type and iPad 7 inch screen with Android system. And all this, and with its 525 hp with a level of fuel consumption more than worth: about 9.8 liters per 100 km.

He Peugeot 308 2017 the we drive in just a couple of weeks and will go on sale within months substituting therefore the generation of 2014, the first made EMP2 on architecture, the first with i-Cockpit, with three-cylinder engines... Renewal, perhaps not hide that revolution in interior or exterior design they have experienced the SUV 3008 and 5008, but the Peugeot 308 becomes the spearhead within the PSA group a new generation technologies which will soon be extended to other household products, and among which especially those aimed at get more efficient engines and more respectful, standardizing and anticipating future regulations.

Inédito 1.5 BlueHDi engine 10 hp more and 4% more efficient

absolutely new, Peugeot has applied 308 2017 the knowledge acquired in the Peugeot 908 Le Mans winner in 2009, including the combustion system. New is not only the block, now with 1.5 liters instead of 1.6, but also the butt 16 valves, turbocharger, electronic and, above all, its exhaust line where we find solutions forward in time... hides 200 new patents duly registered by PSA. With regulations Euro 6c just around the corner (September 2017) which imposes emission rates Nitrogen oxides (NOx) in real conditions of lower circulation 2.1x are those obtained in laboratory tests, Peugeot goes even further developing an exhaust purification system able to meet a factor according NOx below 1.5, ie the value to be implemented from 2020.

So, this 1.5 BlueHDi says goodbye additive FAP (Which can incinerate the filter particles) and welcomes the AdBlue with which neutralize the corresponding NOx SCR catalyst (Selective Catalytic Reductoin, reduction catalyst simply NOx trap). In addition to being more powerful, it is also lighter, it promises better response than the previous 1.6 BlueHDi and elasticity of a good 2.0 HDi.

1.2 Pure Tech / 130: the three-cylinder releases "lungs"

Let's continue with more environmental news. If a recent study I had put gasoline engines in question by the emission of particles -mal of Diesel- endemic, Peugeot already staged the second generation PureTech 1.2 engine 130 hp with a particulate filter (GPF) with an efficiency of 75 percent.
