Audi Q2 vs. Mini Countryman vs. Volvo V40 XC

If you’re looking for a compact family vehicle with a more adventurous look than the norm, you’ll probably see the Audi Q2, the Mini Countryman and the Volvo V40 XC.
Although the Volvo V40 XC is a jacked-up version of the normal tailgate model and is not really classified as a direct competitor to the other two, the company’s pricing policy places them directly against them.Then we have the smallest model of the Q range, which offers a more trendy design than the rest of the Audi SUV lineup while maintaining a practical and well-made cabin.
Finally, the mini countryman, who is rather ironic the larger model of the three, is bringing the company’s signature into the segment along with a cabin that actually fits into a family and, of course, one of the most athletic handling characters.
What is the best way to get up? Look Mat Watson to decide CarWows latest video.

All-New Audi RS 3 Sportback 2017 images / Colour: Ara Blue

From 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 4.1 seconds
Behind the impressive performance of the Audi RS 3 Sportback is the world’s most powerful production five-cylinder engine – the 2.5 TFSI. It delivers 294 kW (400 hp) of output – 33 hp more than the predecessor engine – and is 26 kilograms (57.3 lb) lighter thanks to its aluminum crankcase, among other features. Its maximum torque of 480 Nm (354.0 lb-ft) is available at engine speeds as low as 1,700 rpm and remains constant up to 5,850 rpm. That’s how the RS 3 Sportback is able to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 4.1 seconds. The effect of this extraordinary tractive power is intensified by the five-cylinder’s unmistakable sound, which comes from having the ignition alternate between directly adjacent cylinders and widely spaced ones. On request, Audi will increase the electronically limited top speed from 250 km/h (155.…

Driver Drifted A Toyota 86 For 6 hours uninterrupted!

Toyota updated the 86 last year by giving it a visual refresher and a stiffer body structure, but under its still pretty skin, it remains quite identical to the car that debuted in 2012.
This is not necessarily a bad thing, as we have known over the years, because the two-door coupe has proven its driving abilities several times, with the most significant, the German Haral Mueller in Turkey a world record in 2014, For 144.126km (89.55 miles).However, Mullers record has just been crushed by the South African journalist Jesse Adams, who managed to hold the car for an impressive 168.502km (104.7 miles) and an average speed of 29 km / h (18.02 Mph) after doing register to run around and make a wet ski pad more than 1,000 times, for almost six hours!
Toyota says that “the premise of the record is that the driven wheels must not stop turning at any time during the run,” and “a directional change is permitted as long as the driven wheels remain in motion.”
The results, which were achieved in a …

McLaren debuts new 570S spider, costs £ 20,000 more than the coupé

Powered by a 570 horsepower 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8, the new £ 164,750 McLaren 570S Spider is as fast as its fixed roof sibling
After the success of the new 720S Launch Edition, McLaren will apply the same formula to the 570S Spider and scare off with 400 Launch Edition models. “The McLaren 570S Spider is the most achievable McLaren Spider Adds yet another dimension to the McLaren Sports Series family,” said McLaren CEO Mike Flewitt, adding that its mid-engine layout and “With the 570S Spider, McLaren can now have a third body style next to the coupe and the GT models To their Sports Series portfolio. In contrast to these two, the 570S Spider has an integrated, retractable hardtop that can be lowered or raised in speeds of up to 40 km / h (25 mph) in less than 15 seconds. The hardtop only adds 46 kg (101 lbs) to the weight of the car.
The second-tier roof consists of light composite panels and does not affect the 570S Spider at all. Speaking of this, with 570 hp and 600 Nm (452 ​​lb-ft)…


The spanking-new 2018 Chevrolet Equinox created a reasonably sensible initial impression after we drove the one.5-liter powertrain that’s expected to account for three-quarters of sales of the favored midsize CUV. Praise was concentrated upon its imposingly lightened, taut, and responsive chassis; it's sleek appearance within and out and spectacular feature content. Our biggest gripe throughout that drive was with the aging six-speed automatic and its robust contribution to what clad to be pretty middling performance a month later.

These issues, it seems, ar a snap to fix: merely tick the order box marked 2LT on either the center LT or top-drawer Premier trim level. Doing thus adds a half-liter of displacement to the turbocharged four-banger and 3 ratios to the transaxle. This harnesses an additional eighty two horses and fifty nine lb-ft of force and magnifies the transmission’s leverage significantly. molest quantifies the advance by estimating the juicier powertrain can drop 0–…

Apple focused on self-propelled systems, CEO calls it "The mother of all AI projects"

For the first time ever, Apple CEO Tim Cook has spoken openly about the company’s plans for the automotive sector.
During an interview with Bloomberg Cook said that Apple is concentrating on building an autonomous system for cars and ending the secrecy of the vehicle project.”It is a core technology that we consider very important,” he said. “We saw it as the mother of all AI projects.” It was probably one of the most difficult AI projects to work with. ”
Apple had initially planned to build its own car before focusing its development Technology for autonomous driving. The Titan project of the company, as it was called internally, has employed more than 1,000 engineers since 2014 to work on the project.

How is a Supercharged, Widebody Lamborghini Huracan sound to you?

For better or worse, Lamborghini has probably exercised a degree of restraint in the design of the Huracan. For those who think that the 10-cylinder supercar could use a bit more visual flare, Novitec has released a new N-Largo board kit.
The Aftermarket package expands the Huracan by 4.7 inches to sit a solid 80 inches wide on the road, and makes room for steam roller bikes that are 20 inches in diameter and nine inches wide in front and even greater at 21 by 12.5 Inch rearFor the Coupé or Spyder, the N-Largo kit is also a new front bumper, which should affect the front lift, the ventilated front fender, the inserted rocket panels and the rear bumper with integrated diffuser.

There is a lot of carbon fiber trim to be selected, an abundance of …

3 The Best BMW's Electric Cars

BMW i5 Electric Car Confirmed By Exec
The third member of the "i" family will come in the form of an electric vehicle and it will probably be named i5.

Rumored over the years to join the current i3 and i8, the upcoming car will be offered, just like the i3, with a range extender, as electric infrastructure and battery technology aren’t yet on a level to compete with internal combustion powered models.

"The range-extender plays an important part in the next years when range remains a limiting factor and a source of anxiety", said Henrik Wenders, in a discussion with Car&Driver. The BMW "i" head of product added: "Once we get to a range that is more comparable with that of an internal-combustion engine, it will become obsolete."

Unlike the i3, which most owners use as a second or even third car, mostly for short city trips, the new i5 will be aimed for families looking for a primary car.

"We are thinking of a new i model above it to attr…

Domino's, the company behind those HeatWave delivery bags from the '90s

Just when you thought innovation in pizza delivery had ceased. It took nearly 20 years, but Domino's, the company behind those HeatWave delivery bags from the '90s, has outdone itself with a fleet of modified pizza delivery cars, designed so your pizza and sauce get to your house safe and... I dunno. How often is wing sauce ever in mortal peril?

What Domino's calls the DXP is actually a Chevy Spark, but with all passenger seating replaced with technology to make your pizza, breadsticks, chocolate lava crunch cakes, and soda comfortable. (Are you depressed yet?) The interior also includes its own built-in warming oven. Meanwhile, the exterior features a taxi-like delivery roof light and delivery path indicators so the driver can avoid puddles when he or she steps out of the car in the pouring rain because you just had to order food despite the storm warning on the news only 40 minutes earlier.

If all this sounds just a little ridiculous, well, too late! Domino's already…

The 2017 Mazda CX-9 Signature AWD

We’ve made no secret of our love for the Mazda CX-9.  During the holidays, we had and told you about the 2017 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring, and last July, spent a week at the wheel of the top-of-the-line Mazda CX-9 Signature.  Now, since that was a ’16 model, it’s back to the top we go.

Mazda has wisely left well enough alone with the 2017 Mazda CX-9 Signature. It continues to pack an encyclopedic list of standard features into a three-row, all-wheel-drive (FWD is available at slightly lower cost) crossover that gets an EPA 20 city/26 highway.  And in typical Mazda fashion, it never loses focus on being fun to drive, which is a much bigger order in a full-size crossover.

There isn’t any CX-9 trim level that feels poverty-spec, but I’ll admit it, I’m a huge sucker for the luxury touches of the Signature. Nappa leather-trimmed upholstery, aluminum and rosewood interior trim…it wouldn’t be out of place in a $55,000 crossover…yet the CX-9 Signature AWD’s base price is $44,315…a $300 price incre…
