The Swedish company Volvo, owned by Chinese multinational Geely, announced what will be one of the great innovations that present during the celebration of 81 Geneva International Motorshow (International Motor Show Geneva) to be held in the Swiss city of 3 to March 13.
Volvo will launch in the coming years a range of plug-in hybrid vehicles with an innovative technology that was developed in collaboration with the Swedish energy company Vattenfall also.
There is no doubt that the limited edition luxury cars specially designed for the Middle East are very successful. Brands are concerned with small launch special editions that are sold at prices that only the petrodollars can afford.
An example is found in the Porsche Panamera so special. 4S Porsche Panamera is called Middle East Edition and has been shown in the Qatar Motor Show. Limited to 66 units, Porsche has not given details on the price you have, but I have little doubt that fail to sell in record time all units.
The forthcoming Geneva Motor Show will have a lot of technology, but one of the cars that draw the most attention is the future Nissan Esflow . Yes, currently there is only a concept built electric sports an aluminum body, but what you love? The base is similar to the Leaf Nissan is already a reality, so you have to have hope.
As good sport, the power must be one of its strongholds. This Nissan Esflow be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km per hour in under five seconds, and most importantly, have a range of 240 km with each battery charge.
Actually the new Nissan electric with two lithium ion batteries , one for each engine individually moving the rear wheels and a whole system in charge of all functions of the way it has to do at the right time. Now we just have to wait, but did not take long for the good air in some cities.
Ford Focus Sedan is a compact car with five doors (the Focus is also available with a body of three volumes and four-door-sedan-and family-Sportbreak-). Marketing in Spain start on 15 March 2011, with a starting price of 17,700 €. (View all prices).
Ford Focus Sedan 2011La third generation of compact blue oval is presented as a global production model, ie it is the same model for everyone, from the American market to Europe. It has a modern, first class finishes with good quality materials and a complete range of powerful and efficient engines, which use the latest technology.
Audi is presenting an attractive and technologically concept car based on the next generation of the Audi A3 in the 81st edition of the Geneva International Motor Show, which opens its doors in early March 2011.
This is a three-volume saloon with the four-ring brand offers a first glimpse of the future expansion of the A3 family.
The sporty and elegant design of the Audi A3 Concept integrates grilled singleframe “with a sharp upper corners with a new light clusters with LED technology developed art reminiscent of the SEAT prototype IBE.
The SLS so impressed by what you can do on the straight and curved. Pedal is fully entitled to in a few seconds is rolling at a speed well above the maximum allowed and that things happen to an abnormally high rate.
According to our measurements, the minimum time required to move from 80 to 120 km / h is 2.2 seconds. This data is very good, but not less than that measured at Nissan GT-R, which according to official data is less powerful (485 hp) and heavier. GT-R that it will only speed up is possible because almost certainly give more power than stated by the manufacturer. Soon we will measure the acceleration capacity of the Porsche 911 Turbo 2010 model.
The interior of the Ford Ka is approved for four occupants. There is enough space to travel inside two large or normal size, front-seat and two small-sized rear seats. Habitability and the space inside the Ka is similar to 500 (more information).
A Renault Twingo has a much more spacious rear seats that the Ka, especially if you put the sliding rear seat (optional) in the rearmost position. There are smaller cars out but much better spent inside the Ka, like a KIA Picanto.
In the back of the Ka is difficult to accommodate people of more than 1.75 meters because there is not much headroom to the roof due to body design. The only way not to rub his head on the lining of the hip roof is being further from the seatback, but that means your knees will stuck to the back of the front seats. The legroom is sufficient as long as the front-seat passengers not wearing their seat far behind and the rear seats measure no more than 1.70 to 1.75 meters.
Considerations on the extent and the driving position
The Juke Nissan has little room inside compared to its exterior size. It excels in none of their actions. The width is particularly low, especially in the rear seats. In the front, a Nissan Qashqai has less headroom but the width and legroom is much higher (comparison table).
The legroom in the rear seats is similar to a Volkswagen Polo and a five-door Kia Rio, and lower than an Opel Corsa. All they measure about 14 inches shorter than the Juke.
In addition to the boot is not very big, can not be expanded by moving the rear seats (which is common solution in SUVs, minivans and even commercial vehicles). It is only possible to have more cargo by folding down the rear seats, which involves eliminating the possibility of carrying passengers. If you do that, it is a completely flat load surface (image), but there can not bear any restraint system to protect passengers if the packages are ejected by an accident.
The lower trunk tray covers a 40-liter box (the trunk data provided on the sheets does not include the double bottom), divided by a central partition (image). Perhaps the central wall that separates these holes is to support the heavy weight that can be placed on the tray of the trunk.
The canvas covering the trunk is integrated into the tailgate. Has the advantage of not bothering to introduce packages in the trunk, because it rises when you open the gate, and the disadvantage that can not support anything over it with the open gate.
The Toyota Land Cruiser is a large car, in the three-and five-door, mainly because of its width.
The five-door can have seven seats arranged in three rows of seats (2 +3 +2). The second-row seats can be moved over a total distance of 135 mm. You can be folded into sections (40:20:40). The right side seat moves forward 33 cm to allow access to the third row.
The two third row seats are optional. You can save the two or a single, easily under the boot floor when not needed. In the Land Cruiser seats above the third row is folded to the side. Depending on the level of equipment is provided an electrical device to fold or unfold these seats. The maneuver was performed in 7 seconds.
Car Insurance on the Internet, nothing is very different
What car insurance in general is that from almost every perspective is to assume the commercial behavior of Internet users as distinct. Are believed to constitute a race apart, with habits and needs. Understand, then, is vital in order to expand the market for one or the other offer.
True or not, this logic does not apply to all situations and to exemplify just look at the last study Arpem about selling car insurance over the Internet (Direct Insurance, for example because). It concluded a couple of interesting things.
Road accidents are the number one causes of personal injury in this country. Accidents are almost twice as likely to occur when a motorised vehicle is involved. Road safety is a high priority for any users of the road. You must always be vigilant of anything that can cause an accident.
Avoiding the roads altogether is not an option as they are needed to get people where they need to go, and over half the population is dependent on a car for work or personal purposes. If you are a careful driver, the risk of being involved in a road accident is fairly low. However, if you are injured on the road as a result of someone else’s negligence, be sure to consult with experts in personal injury law to help you regain the financial cost of the accident.
If you are injured on the road, claiming financial compensation may not be at the forefront of your thoughts whilst recovering from a serious collision. However, it is necessary to do this as soon as possible to cover any medical expenses and any dependents you may have. If you are seriously injured and are unable to make a claim yourself for some time, your spouse or other close members of your family including children, parents, aunts and uncles will be able to represent you for the entire process or until such time you are able to take the claim on yourself.
No matter what degree of road accident you are involved in, always remember to ask for police involvement at the scene. Even the most minor accidents can cause injury trauma that surface later. In those cases it is prudent to have the accident investigated so that any evidence can be collected. Medical attention should also be sought regardless of whether there are any immediate or obvious signs of injury immediately after the incident.
As long as the accident was investigated and there is evidence supporting your case, you can still claim compensation up to three years after the accident.
Even if you are not a driver, you may still be in need of accident compensation. If you are a passenger in the vehicle involved, or an unfortunate pedestrian who was in the wrong place at the wrong time, you can still make a claim against the other party for injury compensation.
Automobiles are a necessity for most people but buying a car, especially a new car is one of the most research-intensive jobs there are for today’s car buyers. This research is made easier by auto reviews, where each car undergoes a thorough examination and owners talk about their experiences with a specific model car.
For the new auto buyer, hearing from others that they were happy with a certain car, leads to a buyer making a more confident decision. After all, a new car is a large purchase for most people, second only to buying a home. No one wants to waste their money on a car that doesn’t perfectly match their needs.
Auto reviews can point out things not apparent during a test drive, or even during a look-over by a mechanic. For example, a test drive would never tell you that an auto’s seats will become extremely uncomfortable after a hour drive. If you have a very long commute each day, this type of helpful information can help you make an informed decision. This is the kind of information that you can only get from reviews and forums, when real car owners discuss the good and bad points of their cars. Reviews can also help you avoid costly mistakes, because, as we all know, there are a few new cars that just don’t live up to their hype.
