Nissan Altima (2013)

CAR GARAGE | Nissan Altima (2013) | The 2013 Altima gets the Nissan Connect SM and Advanced Drive-Assist Display (ADAD) installed. Infotainment and connectivity are the stuff They deal with: Bluetooth, hands-free messaging, Pandora integration, or USB are some of the features available on the Altima. Starting this summer, the 2013 Nissan Altima will in showrooms at the price of 21.500 dollars.   Now, that figure Remains to be confirmed. Other features include Bluetooth, a Bose sound system, Navigation Nissan Connect SM integrated smartphone connectivity, and other high-tech gizmos, most of them available on the standard version. Now, the engine choice for this car comes down to two units, both powered by gasoline. We have a 2.5 liter engine with four cylinders rated at 182 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. Those wanting more for a V6 power unit displacing 3.5 liters is available. The latest from Nissan Xtronic CVT is Offered in both cases. The estimated fuel efficiency figures

Volkswagen Cross Coupe TDI Concept (2012)

CAR GARAGE | Volkswagen Cross Coupe TDI Concept (2012) | In the new Volkswagen Cross Coupé, MQB elements for a future generation of SUVs - in this case, the front and rear suspensions MQB, 140 kW / 190 PS TDI of the new EA288 engine series and a 6-speed DSG. Breadth of variations. The Cross Coupé also impressively demonstrates the large breadth of variations can be Implemented That based on the MQB. Efficiency and dynamic performance. Efficient drive technologies can offer extreme levels of dynamic performance. The Cross Coupé demonstrates this new par excellence. Practically at the press of a button, the two E-motors deliver 180 Nm of torque in front and 270 Nm at the rear. During boosting - the which involves full use of both motors and the engine - the system drive system supplies a maximum torque of 700 Nm. This positions the performance concept car in the field of today's high-performance sports cars, yet the vehicle consumes less fuel than any other small car!

The SUV and coupé worlds exciting form an alliance in the Cross Coupé. To the right and left of the gear shift lever, there are grab handles Sturdy yet elegant and, on the right side, the selection buttons for pure electric driving and active battery charging. Programmable instruments. Arranged behind the three-spoke steering wheel is a user-programmable instrument cluster display. A control wheel to the left of the gear shift lever can be used to dynamically change the display contents Between the modes 'SPORT', 'CITY' and 'OffRoad'. The contents functionally different display modes are activated based on this selection - a gyro meter, compass and Topographic maps are shown in Off Road mode, for example. Centrally positioned Between the two round instruments is another multifunction color display for showing vehicle information, the telephone menu, audio and other navigation information as well as the data a 3D off-road view.

Engines of the MQB. As noted, the TDI of the Volkswagen Cross Coupé is an engine developed especially for use in the Modular Transverse Matrix (MQB). A key characteristic of the MQB is a uniform mounting position for all engines. Therefore, Volkswagen engine developed two new series - the EA288 series was created for the Diesels, and the EA211 series for the new petrol engines. Within the MQB, these two series engines and electric motors make it relevant possible to implement any classic, alternative or hybrid drive system.

The new TDI engines of the MQB will be available in versions with 1.6 and 2.0 liter displacement and will span a power range from 66 kW / 90 PS to 140 kW the / 190 PS of the concept car in Geneva. The diesel engines are not only exceptionally low-emitting, fuel-efficient and torque-strong. Consider the 2.0 TDI of the Cross Coupé: two balance shafts are used. They Eliminate system-induced free inertial forces That naturally occur in a reciprocating engine.
