2016 Ford Mustang

Mustang has always been about power. The 2016 models continue in that tradition. Each engine delivers at least 300 horsepower.





In the 2016 Mustang, more heritage cues are back—most notably, hood-vent
turn signals, which return this model year to Mustang GT models. As
well, for the new Mustang's second year, it gets newly available wheels
and striping, as well as a new California Special Package, Pony Package,
and Black Accent Package. A painted-black roof option is now also
available on EcoBoost Mustang and V-8 Mustang GT models.

2017 Mercedes E 220 d Exclusive


The new Mercedes E-Class will come with a choice of two engines at market launch: the E 200 with a four-cylinder petrol engine and the E 220 d with an all-new 4-cylinder diesel engine.

The new 4-cylinder diesel unit marks the birth of a new Mercedes-Benz engine family and opens up new dimensions in efficiency. What's more, it is shorter and more compact than its predecessor thanks to reduced cylinder spacing (90 mm instead of 94 mm). Despite having a lower displacement than its predecessor, reduced to around two litres, the new diesel powerplant has an output of 143 kW/195 hp and, when installed in the E 220 d, delivers NEDC combined consumption of just 3.9 litres per 100 kilometres, which equates to CO2 emissions of 102 grams per kilometre.

In addition to this, the four-cylinder unit is exceptionally refined. In its basic form it features single-stage turbocharging and variable turbine geometry. Both the cylinder head and the crankcase are made of aluminium. The Mercedes-Benz developed Nanoslide® surface coating efficiently reduces the friction between cylinder surface and steel piston.

All models available at market launch are equipped with the new 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission as standard. It enables fast gear changes and allows low engine revs, which has a particularly beneficial effect on efficiency and noise levels.

2016 Infiniti QX60

The future of the Infiniti QX60 Hybrid looked grim a few months ago, when Nissan confirmed the Pathfinder Hybrid was being discontinued.

 After all, the QX60 and Pathfinder are nearly identical underneath their different bodies. But with this 2016 model year refresh, Infiniti confirms that its QX60 Hybrid will indeed carry on for the new year.

 It's the same hybrid system as before, combining a supercharged, 2.5-liter inline-four with an electric motor for a combined 250 horsepower and 243 pound-feet of torque.

  New liquid-filled active engine mounts are added for 2016 in an effort to reduce overall harshness. Non-hybrid models carry on with the naturally aspirated 3.5-liter V6, good for 265 hp and 248 lb-ft.

 The Toyota Prius has long been a polarizing, slow, un-fun instrument of soul-sucking, reputation-ruining, appliance-grade fuel efficiency.

  And its perpetual nerdiness has made it the whipping boy of the car-enthusiast community.

 But like it or not, with 3.5 million sold to date around the globe and deity status in California and other green municipalities like Ann Arbor, the Prius is one of the most important automobiles in history.

 Designers were challenged to sculpt a modern Camaro body around a smaller, lighter architecture while respecting the predecessor’s design.

 This allowed for a smaller, wider, more athletic Camaro shape.

  These tighter proportions in a sports car that shed up to 390† pounds translates into more responsive braking, better attack in and out of corners, and a noticeably more nimble performance.

 Tighter proportions also let the aggressive body features like the fastback profile and rear quarter panels become more pronounced, creating a road presence that’s hard to ignore.
