New, 2019 Hyundai Kona Electric Charges Into Action With 292-Mile Range

Published

on

New Hyundai Kona Electric SUV

Hyundai has taken its promising new Kona subcompact crossover, removed its internal combustion engine and jammed a full-electric drivetrain into it — meet the new Hyundai Kona Electric!

Looking more high-tech and futuristic than the gasoline-powered Kona, the subcompact EV is distinguished by a revised front end with a closed grille, new 17-inch wheels, and a cleaner-looking interior with paddles behind the steering wheel for adjusting the regenerative braking settings.

Two different powertrain options are available. Models with the base 39.2-kilowatt-hour battery pack produce 132 horsepower and deliver 186 miles (300 km) of electric range on the WLTP cycle, while those with the longer range 64-kWh battery boast 292 miles (470 km) on a single charge and can accelerate from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in a respectable 7.6 seconds.

The Hyundai Kona Electric isn’t exactly a Tesla Model X or Jaguar I-Pace rival, but that just means it will cost half as much. Plus, unlike Tesla, there is no reason to believe that Hyundai can’t build them according to plan.

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

Published

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.

BMW M2 Coupe Edition Black Shadow Celebrates Success

Published

BMW M2 Coupe Black Shadow

The BMW M2 has surpassed the M3 as the best-selling M model, and the M2-Coupe Edition Black Shadow is a celebration of that sales triumph.

Unveiled at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, the special blacked out M2 comes exclusively in Sapphire Black metallic and rides on 19-inch, black matte forged light alloys with a Y-spoke design. It also boasts a high-gloss black grille, a carbon finish for the exterior mirrors and rear diffuser, and race-inspired accents.

All mechanical bits remain unchanged from the regular M2, so power is provided by a turbocharged, 370 horsepower 3.0-liter straight-six engine that, when equipped with the optional seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, allows the Black Shadow M2 to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 4.3 seconds.

Compact dimensions combined with the exceptional chassis tuning gives it the handling chops to match the impressive speed.

Considered by many enthusiasts to be the true successor to the E36 M3, the BMW M2 managed to sell more than 12,000 examples in 2017. It is one of the finest performance cars on the market right now.

New Lexus UX Unveiled, Joins Crowded Small SUV Segment

Published

New Lexus UX Small SUV

Toyota’s luxury division has bolstered its SUV-crossover lineup with a compact CUV, the new Lexus UX.

Debuting at the 2018 Geneva Motor show and billed as a ‘gateway model’ for new urban customers “in a dynamic and growing” segment, the UX is essentially a Toyota C-HR but, fortunately, looks more expensive and upscale inside and out.

It rides on Lexus’ new GA-C (Global Architecture – Compact) platform — a variation of the Toyota New Global Architecture — and measures five inches shorter than the Lexus NX crossover at 177 inches (4,495 mm) long, which should make it easier to fit into those tight city parking spaces.

The exterior adopts many of the larger sibling’s styling cues such as the polarizing spindle grille and sculpted panels, though the full-width taillights are distinct. The interior is also an upgrade over the C-HR, featuring new seats, new materials, new tech and more refinement.

The Lexus UX launches in two flavors — UX 200 and UX 250h. The UX 200 gets its power from a new 168-hp 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that’s mated to a CVT, while the UX 250h pairs the same engine with a new fourth generation hybrid drive system that produces 176-hp. A new E-Four system grants the hybrid UX all-wheel drive capabilities by employing an additional electric motor on the rear axle.

The new Lexus UX goes on sale in December 2018.
