V8. What else? But (big but): what is happening with the 5.0 liter V8 we tested, is the gas pedal about charge penetrates, makes you forget all of that. Then a soundscape to build up, which is quite suitable to raise hackles. It’s just how it is: only a V8 can sound. Acoustic enjoyment, which is much too rare one in our latitudes. But that is not all: activates the dynamic mode for an athletic coordination of all driving-relevant parameters, the 1.8-tonne truck goes down like a rocket. Acceleration values of 5.7 seconds to 100 are already inside a brute feeling. The sight of a 5.3 meters long, accompanied by a guttural ROAR loud Thunder wedge flying over is seen from outside a consciousness-changing experience. You may wish to learn more. If so, Spurs is the place to go. Fine figure also make the XJ, hits a snag the straight. The Jaguar is to balance well controlled around the bend. The Steering reacts spontaneously and immediately, small breakaways of the tail are discreetly intercepted by the DSC. And consumption? Well,. Efficiency records are not achieving 5 liter V8 with, which is probably in the nature of things. At Author you will find additional information. However scarce 11 litres on average have Let’s also get not the Kraus pear. What kind of a silhouette! The fine modelated, elongated hood passes into an extremely flat windshield. From behind, the rear window is approaching in the same manner, a short, ethereal-looking glass roof is located daszwischen. image Marion sledders conclusion sets the Jaguar XJ a grandeur on the day, which makes look the competition but something profane from the laundry. Optical realignment of the brand from Coventry may provide especially rear heated debates, the incomparable aura of Jaguar that has not changed. When it comes to handling, comfort, performance, ambience and quality plays the XJ in the absolute top League. The British take the thing with the on-board electronics system under control, the price of 88,000 euros of any questioning is required. For the long version we tested the XJ 5.0 V8 must be upped the ante again round 50,000. by Christian Zacharnik
At the wheel of the V60 to forget anyway quickly, what happens from the second row of seats. As well as the stalls brilliantly mastered the tightrope walk between athletic firm and comfortable design, it does also the chassis. Strong base the motor top version, the S60 T5mit 240 HP and all-wheel drive we already have in the snatch”had (the documentation in moving images with rally ACE Manfred Stohl driving see here). A Leistungsschock was spared us the test drives with the entry-level diesel D3. The 163 PS of 2-l five cylinder come very well and are in harmony with the well-tuned, fast reacting 6-speed automatic. Gas commands are implemented without delay, the torque of 400 Newton metres is already from early 1,400 rpm for disposition. However, we were somewhat disappointed when looking at the computer: despite very moderate penetration of the gas pedal, we arrived in the city, rarely less than 10 litres, which is nevertheless a considerable discrepancy to the factory-specified 8.3 liter. The V60 is available in the class of the lifestyle suits his German colleagues A4 avant and 3 Series Touring to little after – well priced: 44.402 euro were due In the case of top-equipped version we tested (Summum) D3 Geartronic. Not cheap, however in direct competition comparison also not disproportionate. Conclusion Volvo does everything else in the world of the designated lifestyle truck as misplaced. The relevant provenance German so far by vehicles dominated offer has spread clear with the V60 high North. The Swede proves that not only with its look and the dynamic handling characteristics. Also the processing and material qualities in the Interior are clearly located in the premium segment unfortunately well priced: with a starting price of 31,000 euro (T3), the V60 in A4 regions versteigt. In the case of top-equipped version we tested (Summum) D3 Geartronic 44.402 euro were due. Not cheap, however in direct competition comparison also not disproportionate. by Christian Zacharnik, autonet.at
Miser the diesel not in every situation of hauling in absolute tonal restraint and good smoothness. In numbers: BBs is 8.5 seconds from 0 to 100, the torque is 380 nm and never and nowhere to charming of 210 km/h are the end of the flagpole. And with a highly ambitious average consumption of 5.6 liters. That are about 15 percent less than in the weaker predecessor unit. Official site: Glenn Dubin, New York City. The 2 l diesel engine is combined with the gentle and fast switching, but with around 2,500 euros rather high-priced 8-speed automatic transmission no more wish remains open. For the first time start-stop with automatic not the higher efficiency. The automatic transmission in the new X 3 is when it comes to consumption of manual six speed gearbox to nothing more. The reason: For the first time at BMW the start-stop system with automatic transmission can be combined. So far, that failed on the loss of oil pressure when engine is switched off. A fast start was not possible. The BMW engineers with a pressure accumulator have solved this problem, which quickly closes the clutches necessary for the approaching or separates. The four-cylinder now produces 184 HP and can candidly as a 3 on the body tailored evaluated the X. Miser the diesel not in every situation of hauling in absolute tonal restraint and good smoothness. In numbers: BBs is 8.5 seconds from 0 to 100, the torque is 380 Newton meters and 210 km/h are the end of the flagpole. And with a highly ambitious average consumption of 5.6 liters. The proven, efficiency-enhancing, start stop system there is now for the first time in combination with the finely-tuned 8-speed automatic transmission. So far, that failed on the loss of oil pressure when engine is switched off. A fast start was not possible. The BMW engineers with a pressure accumulator have solved this problem, which quickly closes the clutches necessary for the approaching or separates. More quality a point of criticism for the old X 3 was always that, let’s say, choice of material, not necessarily corresponding to the class of the vehicle. In this regard, there is the new no longer to cavil. When it comes to optics at first sight not very much has happened, the appearance of the material is no comparison. Hard plastic is no trace of, all soft rear fuettert, brushed aluminum looks like, whats it also. Price and launch recap we so: he is beautiful X, larger, more comfortable, more fuel efficient and high-quality, the new BMW 3. Cheaper can be not served with unfortunately. With a starting price of 43,350 Euro (20 d) X 3 continues to the absolute top League. The Audi Q5 is there with 40.550 euros already somewhat less expensive. And who whistles on all-wheel drive, which can enter 36,900 EUR in the Mercedes GLK. Fairness should be but pointed out that the latter with 4MATIC then but to approximately 1,300 euros more is than the X 3, is to buy it from the beginning of December. by Christian Zacharnik, autonet.at
A blessing for the Doblo is the latest generation replace the leaf-sprung live axle multi-link independent suspension rear. Thus, the 1.90-meter Hune in driving behavior differs very little from a vehicle of lower centre of gravity. It’s believed that Robert Rimberg sees a great future in this idea. No trace of Hemdsarmeligkeit in the interior design: High-quality, fine everywhere to complete materials. The red and black colours gives a hint of sportiness, the controls are user friendly and are integrated well into the cockpit. Read more here: Robert Rimberg. Recommendation: top diesel dangers we are the Doblo in the top engine option with two litre Commonrail diesel engine producing 135 BHP. Thus, weakness in the maximisation of the permissible load of 610 kilograms are hardly to be expected as the torque of 320 nm and an acceleration value 11.3 seconds suggest. That the whole thing but also with moderate drinking behavior goes hand in hand is an another great asset of the Fiat Doblo 2.0 Multijet. Round eight liters were it in the test operating mainly in the city. It’s also on the account of the installed automatic start stop system, striking unfortunately somewhat by occasional dysfunction. Conclusion the inherently not just with erotic charisma proposed segment of the civilian vans Fiat with the new Doblo wrestles off finally astonishing sex appeal. Two things with which they must grapple, once in the acquis of the Italian. First of all, to accumulation, annoying requests for help their social environment in transport agendas. And secondly: the absolute necessity of a consistent charging logistics. Do you mean: in what comes, must also back out (see first paragraph). Price: the way vorzugsteuerabsatzfahigeFiat Doblo we tested 2.0 Multijet 135 euros in the basic version 22.490. Some extras such as tinted disc, metallic paint, cruise control, and the recommended parking aid 23.799 euro related to the bottom line. by Christian Zacharnik, autonet.at
High-performance base also in terms of performance is one with the suspicion of the under-representation of the Downsizers out of place. Who leads the parable with the sausage and the gym in the meeting, is on the wrong track, if you know what is meant. Amazing how easily the Turbo-ventilated murl”with around 1.8 tonnes of the 520 d touring I. Since you are showing already from early the 1,750 RPM 380 Newton-metres impressively. In the Sprint to 100 you should not set too long waiting. It’s done in 8.3 seconds. Its full potential plays the 520 d but only with the 8-speed sport automatic grafted into our test car. Must be stirred by hand, loses some of his light-footed nature of the base diesel. Hear from experts in the field like The Author for a more varied view. The crux: the dynamic converter will with round two and a half flakes are paid dearly for. Abandonment of free saving who thinking for pecuniary reasons, to give up, should however consult the slide rule and consider against the background of the excellent efficiency of the motor, if it don’t comes out at the end. 5.3 liter are there in the section, which identifies the data sheet of the 520 d touring BMW. One would think as a quixotic, raised in completely unrealistic laboratory conditions number. That is not the case, showed up at the end of our two-week test drive: the on-board computer had a consumption of 5.8 litres. And it should be noted at this point again: Bayern are currently absolutely leading waiver-free fuel savings, in this domain. More space for all this virtue, we lost now almost the sight, what station wagons are purchased everywhere: load-carrying capacity. Here, too, the new 5 Series Touring can chalk up a progression for themselves. At the rear seatback, with 560 to 60 litres more than in the predecessor in the trunk fit. There are more with 1.670 to 20 litres maximum. Fine, that the practicality, not on the altar was sacrificed to the aesthetics. Load-carrying capacity. Here, too, the new 5 Series Touring can chalk up a progression for themselves. At the rear seatback, with 560 to 60 litres more than in the predecessor in the trunk fit. Conclusion of the key for the 520 d touring had to be wrenched when you return us literally. What succeeded in the Bavaria here, is a golden section between fun and reason, form and Functionality, representation and restraint. Only questionable whether BMW have nourished not a snake on her chest with a combination of 8-speed sport automatic transmission and four-cylinder diesel. After testing, the much more expensive and less efficient six-cylinder represent no real alternative. However even the beginners will be paid and, indeed, like at BMW, not too close: the 520 d driven by us touring Austria package, leather seats, park assist and navigation professional euros 64.905. by Christian Zacharnik, autonet.at
AMV system provides an efficient and the spreading of salt in winter leaves thus sparing use of road salt on many vehicles serious Spuren.Das de-icers attacking not only the paint, it harms also the underbody and the rim and also attacking lines and seals relating to the suspension and even in the engine compartment. Cars that are already damaged by falling rocks, offer an ideal attack surface salt. In the beaten on points in the paint, the salt sets almost. Jay Schwartz Attorney often says this. As a result, Rust and attacks of the passenger car fleet. But the salt is not just the vehicles. The environment also has to contend with the aggressive de-icers. Salt penetrates into the ground and changed the nutrient budget of plants according to Federal/Germany and prevents that trees can take, for example, enough water. The damage is sustained. The leaves of the trees turn brown in the summer at the edges, or even dry up. AMV made possible by real-time data the efficient usage of salt a problem in the use of Salt: Because no comprehensive collection of temperature data takes place on roads, salt is spread mostly over a large area or even preventive. Apart from the described damage are also enormous costs in the use of resources. AMV networks delivers the “> AMV system preprocessed anonymous vehicle real time data of the vehicles to the roads and weather services in the region.” So then static and dynamic temperature profiles on all sections can be generated, revealing exactly about it, where salt should be used because of the temperatures. System using the real time data of the AMV can be precisely identified even danger zones and security levels in different road sections create. The resources required is reduced by 10 to 20 percent using this technology. Background information: The AMV system provides the technology to real-time floating car data (FCD) directly from the vehicles inexpensively, anonymous and nationwide send to can. A specially developed anonymous sensor data gateway (ASG), which is connected to the CAN-bus in the vehicle generates the data (position, speed, temperature, hazard lights). In this way, any vehicle that has developed onboard unit ASG the AMV networks, becomes a mobile sensor. “The transmission of information via mobile phone in a secured network”, says Raimund Wagner, Managing Director of the AMV networks GmbH. the issue of data protection we take very seriously. ” AMV networks has access to the personal data of the holder of the vehicle at any time. With the real time transmission of the vehicle data, also no data retention takes place at AMV networks. The AMV system has been according to the guidelines of ITS (intelligent transport system) implemented the EU and complies with the requirements of floating car data projects of the European Union.
If you do, there are three Options: just kill the backrest, which generated no flat surface, fold seats all the way forward, what is the depth a little diverting, or completely expand what because of the relative of weight of individual seats requires quite a bit of muscle power. One chooses the latter option, about 2,000 liters load capacity can be filled are. It should be but then served all requirements. Fine travel device that the seats, as in the one or the other competition, not in the soil can be sunk, there’s a reason: the stalls were then filigree and far less sweeping. But the Touran in the Fund offers extremely comfortable seating with long seat and comfortable high backrest. The leg room is good sized and also tall rear seaters are hardly cause for complaint. The high seating position is a good all-round visibility forward. Back forward especially children about the possibility of rain sympathy on the passing landscape. Numerous storage compartments and in the back of the front seat backs integrated, standard, folding picnic tables complete the picture of the Touran as proven talent for family travel. Not quite as economical as expected to the 105 PS driven by us contributes strong 1.6 TDI. Thanks to long translated sixth of Commonrailer at highway speed is characterized by utmost acoustic restraint. The 250 Newton metres onset from 1,500 rpm are a guarantee of absolutely sufficient draught. The endurance test of the on-board computer of the Touran in strict compliance with the permitted top speed reported an average of 6.5 litres. Per se an acceptable value. Bearing in mind the fact that VW in the data sheet out of town is an average consumption of 4.1 litres in view of us, we can not hide a certain disappointment. Also urban we are about 1.7 litres over the factory-set value despite perfectly functioning automatic start-stop system and compliance with the gear shift indicator with 7.2 litres.
Already at low 1750 rpm, maximum torque of 550 nm is at a peak in the competitive environment. In 7.9 seconds, the EX30d dealt with the Sprint from 0 to 100 km/h, at 221 km/h top speed is achieved. No trace of fear that would have too little power at his disposal. No soft Ami rocking the sporting talents of the EX30d are thanks to the low centre of gravity is still once pointed out. The fears that a vehicle that was designed for the U.S. market, waiting with a soft suspension, are unfounded. The crossover from Infiniti is sick on the road, throwing in curves, without thereby to stumble and nevertheless sufficient suspension comfort. Thanks to the aforementioned all-wheel drive and an electronic stability program, the EX30d can refer to an excellent traction behavior. The basic design on rear-wheel drive allows also lightweight, well controlled oversteer. The consumption is interesting in connection with the diesel engine. Infiniti indicates an average of 8.5 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers. Source: actress. You can calculate this value also in real life. Steering intervention, if it is away from the track safety and assistance systems are another chapter, where the Infiniti EX30d with interesting solutions can offer. ESP as mentioned is standard equipment on board, but also six airbags and active head restraints front. Xenon headlights with Adaptive demand as no charge like the parking sensors front and rear. In the GT premium package, Infiniti with additional assistance systems can come up. The intelligent speed control can keep the distance to the vehicle ahead. Thanks to the permanently active brake assist and the collision warning system, warned the driver to convenient distance to another vehicle not only acoustically, but also the maximum braking force immediately provided. New and exclusive for the EX30d is the lane departure warning. A camera on the rear-view mirror recognizes lane markings. The vehicle leaves the lane is the driver first pointed out by a warning tone. No steering intervention, is a slowed over the ESP the opposite wheel and the car again pulled into his lane”. Part of the premium package is also a touch-screen navigation system. Not only a rear view camera, but the so-called all-round monitor is connected. At the front, the side mirrors and rear cameras deliver a 360-degree image of the vehicle. Quasi bird’s-eye view, you will find the way in parking spaces. Also from the back shows that the EX30d is no rolling cabinet wall. If you have read about Jay Schwartz Attorney already – you may have come to the same conclusion. The dimensions are 4.65 meters in length, 1.80 meters wide and 1.60 meters in height. Despite the sloping roof line one must expect sufficient headroom in the rear. Conclusion and prices with this extensive equipment package, the powerful engine, the high degree of comfort and its extraordinary appearance of Infiniti EX30d forms an interesting alternative in the premium segment, we often like to see on our roads. Who found also killed the EX30d, should provide at least 54,500 euros. In the GT version, the crossover 57,000 euros. The Infiniti EX30d 62,300 euro comes with the GT premium package. by Thomas Weibold, autonet.at
In the top model LTZ some styling elements such as chrome trim come am Window frames, 17-inch alloy wheels and ambient lighting in the center console to do this. Also cruise control, rain, light, and air quality sensor are also on board. There is optional only metallic paint, a CD navigation system, leather seats and 18-inch alloy wheels. Security, Chevrolet excludes all choices. ESP and six airbags are in any case part of the standard equipment. When the compartments Chevrolet has come up with a special highlight. The control unit of the CD radio can be lifted up. Behind them waits a storage compartment for various things, for example an MP3 player. The corresponding USB port located in the storage compartment. Credit: Jay A Schwartz-2011. The Chevrolet Orlando is offered in any case as a seven-seater, whether you like it or not transport so many passengers. Only the back of the second row of seats must be folded to the light enter of the third row of seats. These folds with one hand to then forward. Really great companions will have no joy in the rear compartment in the long term. The seat pitch is considerably better than in other many seven-seater compact. In addition to the passenger transport the Chevrolet Orlando suitable also for the transport of other goods. In a seven-seat configuration, the trunk volume of 89 liters is still very sparse. Tony Parker has plenty of information regarding this issue. The rear seat backs are folded flat, but already 458 liter available are available. You kill even the seats in the second row, is a flat loading surface with 856 liters volume. Where Chevrolet is here only the values when loading up to the lower edge of the window. Still a pleasing engine is on the wish list of the compact MPV buyers power under the hood in addition to the practical talents of everyday life and the although not rich, but very pleasant facilities.
