All-New, 2019 Nissan Altima Gets AWD, New Turbo Four – No More V6

Published

on

New, 2019 Nissan Altima family sedan

The Nissan Altima has entered its sixth-generation, bringing with it a bolder exterior styling, a classier interior, all-wheel drive and a new turbo engine.

Unveiled at the 2018 New York Auto Show, the new Altima is bigger and looks more expressive than its predecessor, borrowing many styling cues from its bigger brother, the Maxima. Design highlights include a V-motion grille flanked by boomerang lights, a lower hood, shorter front overhang, a floating roof, and rear wheels that have been pushed out further to deliver a more athletic stance.

The redesigned Altima is also longer and wider, meaning more interior room for passengers. The cockpit features what Nissan calls a “gliding wing” instrument panel with an 8-inch infotainment system, complete with standard Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity.

The biggest news? Power is provided by a new 2.0-liter, variable-compression four-cylinder turbo-four (it debuted in the Infiniti QX50 crossover), which replaces the previous V6. In fact, the sixth-generation Altima marks the first time in over 15 years that the Altima will not be offered with a V6.

Nissan claims the turbo four, which produces 248 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque, delivers “V6-level” performance with four-cylinder fuel economy, something we’ve heard time and time again. Lower trim levels come standard with a 2.5L four-cylinder engine.

Also noteworthy is an available all-wheel-drive system, the first time that the Altima has had such a feature. The Japanese automaker expect AWD models to account for a “significant” portion of the midsizer’s sales in North America.

Under the hood the 2019 Altima will offer two engine options, the base 2.5L four-cylinder and the new 2.0-liter VC-Turbo engine that debuted in the Infiniti QX50. The 2.5L is available with all-wheel drive.

While overall interest in the midsize sedan segment continues wane, Nissan feels that the new, 2019 Nissan Altima, which goes on sale in fall 2018, will be able to reinvigorate interest in midsize sedans. From what you see and know about it, do you agree? Let us know in the comments below.

Bentley Bentayga Speed Nabs “World’s Fastest SUV” Title

Published

on

New Bentley Bentayga Speed, fastest SUV

The luxury SUV can launch to 62 mph in under 4 seconds.

Bentley proudly boasts that, with a top speed of 190 mph (306 km/h), the Bentayga Speed is the world’s fastest production SUV.

The 6.0-liter W12 engine found in the standard Bentayga has been tweaked to put out 626 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque, providing enough propulsion to hit 62 mph (100 km/h) from a standstill in just 3.9 seconds.

It’s worth noting that the 641 hp, V8-powered Lamborghini Urus is actually lighter and more powerful yet has the same top speed. The fact that the two SUVs are closely related makes us think there were some politics behind this head-scratching outcome.

In addition to the extra power, the Bentayga Speed provides a more dynamic driving experience than the regular Bentayga thanks to a retuned Sport mode and a stiffened suspension, while the exhaust note is throatier.

Designer gave the exterior a performance-theme characterized by dark-tint headlights, blacked-out grilles, a tailgate spoiler, and unique 22-inch wheels available in three finishes. Inside, one finds contrast stitching on the diamond-quilted upholstery and Alcantara trim, the first time the material has been used in a Bentayga.

The Bentley Bentayga Speed goes on sale in the second half of 2019 after making its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show.

Subaru WRX STI S209 Is The Most Powerful Subaru Ever

Published

on

New Subaru-WRX STI S209 Sports Car

The long-rumored, limited edition Subaru WRX STI S209 is here, and it’s the most powerful car ever built by Subaru.

Unveiled at the 2019 Detroit Auto SHow, the S209 transcends the standard WRX STI in power, aerodynamics, and handling. Engineers reworked Subaru’s 2.5-liter boxer engine, giving it a larger HKS turbocharger that increases boost pressure from 16.2 psi to 18.0 psi and stronger yet lighter pistons and connecting rods.

The result? A significant boost in power from 300 horsepower to 341 horsepower, while midrange torque jumps by 10 percent at 3,600 rpm. All that power is sent to the four wheels via a six-speed manual transmission.

Inspired by the the WRX STI Nürburgring Challenge racecar, the WRX STI S209 looks the part with wider fenders, front canards and a large rear wing. Handling benefits from a revised chassis and suspension, a flexible strut tower bar and tensioned draw stiffeners, along with 19×9-inch forged BBS alloy wheels covered in sticky Dunlop SP Sport Maxx tires.

The Subaru WRX STI S209 will be available exclusively in the US market, and only 200 units will be manufactured. You will be able to choose from two color combinations: WR Blue Pearl with gray wheels and Crystal White Pearl with gold wheels.

New Lexus RC F Track Edition Joins 2020 RC F Lineup With Less Weight, More Performance

Published

on

2020 Lexus RC F Track Edition

A track-focused version joins the updated RC F for 2020.

The new Supra was Toyota’s big debut at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show, but luxury subsidiary Lexus tagged along to remind everybody that it already has a performance coupe, one with a V8 to play with.

The RC F has received some upgrades for 2020 model year, and to make it more compelling for sports car enthusiasts, Lexus has added a new Track Edition to the lineup for 2020. The so-called RC F Track Edition is a stripped-down, track-only spec model that benefits from more aggressive aerodynamic elements and a weight-reduction regime.

Like the regular RC coupe, all Lexus RC F models get new headlights, a restyled grille and new taillights. The 5.0L V8 has been caressed to squeeze out an extra five horsepower and 6 lb-ft. of torque, bringing the total to 472 horsepower and 395 lb-ft. The eight-speed automatic transmission carries over but now has a higher final drive ratio (3.13 vs 2.93).

With the RC F Track Edition, major panels like the roof and hood are carbon fiber, and the standard RC F’s rear seats have been replaced by a carbon fiber partition.

Engineers also equipped 19-inch BBS forged-alloy wheels, Brembo with lightweight carbon-ceramic brake rotors, and a titanium muffler and tail pipes. These lighter pieces come together to reduce the Track Edition’s weight by 176 pounds from the RC F, and Lexus estimates that using the standard launch control system propels it to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just under 4.0 seconds (3.96 seconds, to be exact).

Standard on even the stock RC F, the new electronic launch control automatically adjusts the traction and throttle control for maximum acceleration from a stop. All the driver has to do is press and hold the brake pedal, engage the system, floor the accelerator to bring up the engine speed, and release the brake.

To help the RC F Track Edition stand out, designers gave it a red leather interior with Alcantara seat accents and red carbon trim on the doors and dashboard. Only two exterior colors are available: Ultra White and Matte Nebula Gray.

Production of the updated Lexus RC F and RC F Track Edition begin in the second half of 2019. Pricing notwithstanding, do you feel compelled to buy one?
