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.

New Lotus Evija Is An Electric Supercar With 2,000 HP

Lotus Evija Electric Supercar

There is a new electric hypercar speeding into town, and it has nearly 2,000 horsepower.

Lotus has unveiled its latest creation, the Evija electric hypercar.

Billed as the world’s first pure electric British hypercar, the Evija (pronounced E-vi-ya) is powered by four electric motors that generate a combined “target output” of 2,000PS (1,973 horsepower), which should make it the most powerful series production road car ever built if the British sports car maker successfully delivers that lofty output figure.

The Evija electric hypercar stays true to the brand’s ethos of making lightweight, fun-to-drive cars. It’s made out of carbon fiber and weighs just 3,700 pounds, which although heavy for a Lotus, is light for an EV, especially one with a 2,000 kWh lithium-ion battery pack.

The battery provides a driving range of around 250 miles (402 km) and is mid-mounted just like the engines in Lotus’ normal cars. Once depleted, it can be recharged fully in a mere nine minutes when using a 800 kW charger and up to 90 percent capacity in only 12 minutes when using a 350 kWh charger.

Lotus says the Evija can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (96 km/h) in under 3 seconds, to 124 mph (200 km/h) in around 6 seconds, and to 186 mph (299 km/h) in less than 9 seconds. Top speed is expected to be around 200 mph (322 km/h).

“The Lotus Evija is a car like no other,” said Phil Popham, CEO of Lotus. “It will re-establish our brand in the hearts and minds of sports car fans and on the global automotive stage. It will also pave the way for further visionary models.”

Only 130 units of the Lotus Evija will be built, each costing a $2.1 million in the United States or £1.7m duties and taxes in Europe when sales begin in 2020. Buyers are required to make a $310,000 deposit.

Mini Cooper SE Is Mini’s First All-Electric Car

The SE provides a modest range of up to 168 miles in Europe, and generous instant torque should make it a real hoot to drive around town.

After months of teasing, MINI has finally unveiled its first-ever all-electric car, the Cooper SE.

The company’s EV is essentially a Mini Cooper S with an electric drivetrain — more specifically, the same technology used by the BMW i3 — that lets it drive 235 to 270 kilometers (146 to 168 miles) based on Europe’s WLTP and NEDC test cycles. It will reportedly have an EPA-certified driving range of 183 km (114 miles) in the U.S., a figure that will not make it a direct competitor with the Tesla Model 3 and other 200+ mile electric vehicles.

A 32.6-kWh lithium-ion battery pack energizes an electric motor that produces 181 horsepower and 199 lb-ft. of torque, allowing the Cooper Electric to zoom from 0 96 km/h (62 mph) in 7.9 seconds before hitting a top speed of 150 km/h (93 mph).

The production car seems to stay close to the concept that debuted back in 2017, featuring bright yellow accents and optional asymmetrical Corona Spoke two-tone 17-inch wheels. The interior features unique display and control elements.

According to MINI, the MINI Electric maintains the brand’s characteristic “go-kart feeling.” It weighs just 319 pounds more than the regular Cooper S two-door hardtop despite the added heft of the battery and has a 30 mm lower center of gravity thanks to the floor-mounted battery.

Are you happy with how it turned out?

New, 2020 BMW X6 SUV Arrives With Twin-Turbo V8, Light-Up Grille

Published

New, 2020 BMW X6 SUV Coupe

TM Hair Fibers Ad

Its still a more stylish X5, but with a grille that lights up at night this time around.

Regardless of what you think about it’s polorizing design, the BMW X6 has been a relative success, having sold over 443,000 units since the first-gen model debuted in 2008. This success has warranted an all-new, third-generation X6.

The X6 was one of the first coupe-like crossovers — a funky-looking one at that– and the latest model sticks close to that formula. The overall proportions don’t change much — it still looks like a tall fastback on stilts — but the front and rear fascias have been upgraded with BMW’s latest design language.

Designers put more effort into differentiating the X6 from the more practical X5 than ever before, with distinct touches including a brand-first light-up grille that turns on at the same time as the daytime running lights.

The interior is mostly the same as the X5’s, including the driver-oriented center console and digital instrument cluster. A navigation system, tinted windows, a larger panoramic sunroof, ambient lighting, and Apple CarPlay all come standard, but Android Auto is still not offered.

The new X6 is a little longer and wider than the previous model, meaning more room for driver and passengers. Cargo space is still undermined by the coupe-like design, but it too is a little larger at 27.4 cubic feet with all seats up and 59.6 cubes with the rear seat folded flat. If space is your priority, go for the X5.

At launch, the X6 will be available in three versions called sDrive40i, xDrive40i and M50i. The sDrive40i and xDrive40i source their power from a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder engine that produces 335 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque, while the M50i gets a 4.4-liter eight-cylinder TwinPower turbocharged engine with 523 hp and 553 lb-ft. Both engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The X6 sDrive40i is capable of going from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 5.2 seconds, while the all-wheel drive X6 xDrive40 reaches 60 mph in 5.3 seconds. The BMW X6 M50i is rear-wheel drive only and reaches 60 mph in only 4.1 seconds.

A proper M-tuned X6 M with over 600 horsepower will join the line-up later on, as will a plug-in hybrid model. European buyers will have access to several diesel options in addition to the aforementioned engines.

The all-new, 2020 BMW X6 is built in Spartanburg, South Carolina, and goes on sale in November 2019. Pricing starts at $64,300 for the sDrive40i model and $85,650 for the X6 M50i, both excluding a mandatory $995 destination charge.
