Peugeot 2008 RX 3-door in the Pipeline

by on May.19, 2014, under Auto Review Specs

 

A new three-door version of the Peugeot 2008 is under consideration. Exclusive pics show how the 2008 RX could look

 

 

Peugeot is thought to be working on a new three-door crossover to sit below the 2008. It would use a chopped-down version of the 2008`s platform, taking the total length to around 3,900mm-about 300mm shorter than the 2008.

 

 

As the image shows, the sporty SUV borrows cues from Peugeot`s latest models, including the stepped lights from the 308 hatch as well as its claw-style tail-lights. However, there`s no sign of the 2008`s silver roof rails.

 

 

A name for the car is still being debated, but 2008 RX and 1008 have reportedly both been considered. Engines will be borrowed from the 208 and 2008 families, including the 1.0-litre VTi, which kicks off with 68bhp.

 

 

 

A three-cylinder turbo will also be offered. The new crossover is due to go on sale in summer 2016, and should undercut the 2008 by nearly 1,000 Pounds Sterling which will take the starting price to around 12,000 pounds sterling.

 

 

Its launch will form part of a new Peugeot push on SUV models, which will include an all-new 3008 that features more recognisable off-road styling. The brand is also considering a large 6008 model for China, which would rival premium models such as the Audi Q5.

Renault Kwid Production Version planned for 2016

by on May.19, 2014, under Auto Review Specs

Powered by three-cylinder engines

 

British media is reporting Renault is planning a production version of the Kwid concept set for a 2016 release.

Renault Kwid Production Version planned for 2016

 

Renault apparently believes there is room in its line-up for a smaller crossover positioned below the Captur as they are plotting a new model derived from the Kwid concept which was 3.6 meters long. The production model will grow to around 4 meters, but it will still be around 120mm shorter than the Clio-based crossover.

 

 

It is believed Renault will stick to the Kwid nameplate while the design will be considerably toned down compared to the quirky-looking concept. The model might adopt a three-door configuration for what will be a rounded body shape featuring plastic cladding. It will feature an increased ride height and should come with underbody protection to provide a rugged appearance.

 

 

Under the hood it will probably receive very small and efficient engines, including a Twingo-sourced 3-cylinder TCe turbocharged motor with 90 PS {66 kW)} and 135 Nm {100 lb-ft} and a naturally-aspirated version of the same engine called SCe with 70 PS {51 kW} & 91 Nm {67 lb-ft}.

 

The Renault Kwid production version is allegedly slated for a 2016 release and will be around 20-30 percent more affordable than the larger Captur.

by on May.19, 2014, under Auto Review Specs

 

New details are starting to emerge about the 2017 Mercedes E-Class Coupe and Convertible.

 

 

According to Car Magazine, the models will have an evolutionary design but adopt a more dramatic appearance thanks to shorter overhangs and a lower and wider stance. The cars are also slated to be larger than their predecessors which should help distance them from the C-Class Coupe and Convertible.

 

 

The models will also get a technical makeover as they are slated to receive everything from a heads up display to a semi-autonomous driving mode. We can also expect an advanced infotainment system with revised controls

 

 

Power will reportedly be provided by an assortment of engines including a new straight six with outputs ranging from 200-400 bhp {149- 298 kW}. We can also expect four-cylinder petrol and diesel units as well as a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 with as much as 600 bhp {447 kW} and 553 lb-ft {749 lb-ft} of torque.

 

 

If that`s not enough options, there will reportedly be a hybrid and two plug-in hybrid variants. The mild hybrid will reportedly have a 40 bhp {30 kW}electric motor and electric-only range of 3 miles {4.8 km}. The plug-in hybrids, on the other hand, will reportedly have an 80 bhp {59 kW} and 110 bhp {82 kW} electric motor and an electric-only range of up to 30 miles {48.2 km}.

Oi! For England! Bentley Celebrates Anniversary With UK-Only Mulsanne 95

by on May.19, 2014, under Auto Review Specs

After spending World War I working on aircraft engines, W. O. Bentley established his automobile concern in 1919. Though his first production model didn`t hit British roads until 1921, the Volkswagen Group unit that bears his name is celebrating the 95th anniversary of their foundation with a UK-only, limited-edition Mulsanne.

 

 

Called simply the Mulsanne 95, the 15 cars to be sweated over by Bentley`s Mulliner division don`t feature a honking supercharger strapped to their engines, retro crazed-lacquer finishes, or Bentley Boys bobbleheads affixed to the dash.

 

Don`t be daft, man, if you want a gauche Bentley, you`d send it to Mansory. The 95s do, however, feature a subtly darkened Flying B hood ornament, fancy 3D-illuminated sill plates featuring a `ninety five` script flanked by stylized opposite corners of the Union Jack, and your choice of three colors: Britannia Blue, Empire Red, and Oxford White.

 

Perhaps the most notable aspect of the 15 cars to be constructed is the interior woodwork. The walnut veneer`s sourced from a huge tree that fell during a storm in Lincolnshire back in 2007. Estimated to be between 300 and 400 years old, the heavily figured wood pairs with blue-and-white two-tone leather featuring red stitching.

Oi! For England! Bentley Celebrates Anniversary With UK-Only Mulsanne 95

 

The bad news for us? Intenders will have to be comfortable with right-hand drive, because the automobiles will only be sold in the UK. It is, after all, only proper to pay a bit of exclusive tribute to the land that birthed you.
