  2. Good Day to Everyone! Finally got a chance to post and start a new forum myself; I am always looking forward for Lexus owners to share their driving experience, the things to watch out for the cars, maintainance, tyres / spare parts or some recommended service centres to share among all Lexus owners to better use the money when needed to deal with these matters for their cars. Feel free to update and post any replies; thanks for your kind support then!

  4. 2020 Genesis GV80 Drops Bulky Camo As Engine Lineup Is Revealed The wait for Genesis’ first SUV is almost over as we’re nearing the GV80’s world debut which will most likely happen at the LA Auto Show next month. The fact that the launch is just around the corner is obvious in the new camouflage adopted by 2020 GV80 prototypes. One of them was spotted at the Nürburgring with a tight fit camouflage covering the final production body, giving us the best look yet at Korea’s upcoming premium midsize SUV. Looking like a toned down version of the GV80 Concept, the production model adopts very similar horizontal headlights and taillights consisting of two parallel elements. The proportions are similar to the namesake concept as well, albeit less athletic and more massive. The third lateral window is fully covered by camouflage tape but a closer look reveals a triangular outline reminiscent of the GV80 Concept. In these photos, the Genesis GV80 does not appear to be fully in its element negotiating the treacherous Nordschleife. This should come as no surprise, since we’re talking about a massive SUV that’s 4,945-mm long, 1,975-mm wide and 1,715-mm high. Therefore, it will need powerful engines and the good news is it will get them. Earlier this week, Genesis confirmed a lineup of three powertrains for GV80: turbocharged Smartstream G2.5 T-GDi 2.5-liter four-cylinder and Smartstream G3.5 T-GDi 3.5-liter V6 gasoline units, plus a Smartstream D3.0 3.0-liter straight-six diesel. The four-cylinder delivers 304 PS (300 HP) while the V6 produces 380 PS (375 HP). The diesel is said to offer 278 PS (274 HP) but it will probably not be available in the United States. A new eight-speed dual-clutch automatic will also be part of the lineup. The 2020 Genesis GV80 is the first of three SUVs to be launched by the Korean luxury brand, including a compact GV70 and an unspecified model.

    Ssangyong Tivoli: Needs some polish

    I am sure that there are few greater pleasures in this world than KBBQ. Don't get me wrong, the Koreans produce plenty of high-quality stuff: The world of battery technology, electronics, cosmetics, and er, their K-pop groups (I guess) all speak to the dizzying ambitions of the great nation. But I think many will agree that there is likewise something ephemeral in the pleasure of being able to cook and stuff your face for $24.99 an hour. Perhaps its that fact that you sit cossetted in the knowledge that you got a decent deal anyhow, and is thus immune from buyer's remorse once you're full, or maybe it's the fact that for the next hour, you are empowered over your own gluttony, free at will to toe that sublime division between excess and restrain. Whatever it may be, if you, as I myself often do, find yourself in need of cheap transportation to hop from restaurant to restaurant, Ssangyong has the perfect solution for you. Ssangyong needs the facelifted Tivoli to do well. On the international front, Dacia has already firmly established itself as the go-to frills-free brand, and Nissan's all new Juke is once again raring at the heels of the compact crossover segment. But more importantly, think of this facelift as the initial assault, a market acid test if you will, before Ssangyong's more expensive offerings such as the Korando makes it to our shores. So, the headlines first: The new Tivoli comes into the competitive and crowded segment with a new, 161bhp turbocharged four-cylinder unit hot enough to fire up any BBQ joint. Combined with its 260Nm torque output, the Tivoli will be able to see off what will be local close-rivals the Honda HR-V and Toyota C-HR. Sweet. But better still, the facelifted car also now sports refreshed head lights and integrated fog lamps which manage to lift the look of the entire car into something that is do I dare say, handsome? (Edit: Those that have seen how I dress on our parent site best cast doubts on my aesthetic judgement!) Step inside and you will find space aplenty even for four with pork-bellied stomachs. Opt for the deluxe spec car and you also find a new central 8.0-inch infotainment display that comes with Apple Carplay and Android Auto compatibility. Abundant use of gloss black in the interior means you will struggle to keep contact points clean from your greasy fingers, but do will to lift the perceived quality of the entire cabin, which is, once again, pretty sweet, especially considering that you're still looking at a $109,888 car (price as of press time). I cover all this in the full review here. But since there is less nannying when it comes to blog posts I shall take the opportunity to speak more freely here. The car needs polishing. To drive at speed, the car makes its high kerb weight and centre of gravity felt, running wide far earlier than you would expect. Quick lane change manoeuvres are met with that sickening sensation that your bum is no longer travelling in the direction your arms have intended, and the suspension has no qualms about constantly making itself heard over bumps. That new engine may be a riot, but it sure as hell sounds like one when climbing into the rev range. Which is all a damm shame. Like finding out your favorite haunt no longer serves fresh entrees. I wanted the Tivoli to do well, mostly because for a while there it seemed like they were starting the make the right noises here and here, and diversity is the spice of life right? Still, its important to remember that this is only a facelifted model. Come 2020, we dig into the meat proper and see the firm's latest efforts. I'm already hungry for more.
  14. Supposedly the replacement model of the ever popular JDM Toyota Rush / Daihatsu Be-Go. To be launched in Japan on 5 Nov. Quick Spec Dimension: 3,995mm (L) x 1,695mm (W) x 1,620mm (H) Engine: 1.0L Turbo Charged 3 Cylinder
  15. 2019 Subaru Ascent It rises from the ashes of the Tribeca. https://www.caranddriver.com/news/2019-subaru-ascent-official-photos-and-info-news Nearly half a decade after the demise of Subaru’s Tribeca SUV, the Japanese brand will jump back into the three-row crossover game with the 2019 Subaru Ascent. Built on the scalable Subaru Global Platform that also underpins the latest Impreza, the Ascent rides on a 113.8-inch wheelbase and contains a formidable 152 cubic feet of passenger space in its boxy body, comparable to the Honda Pilot (152 cubic feet) and the Volkswagen Atlas (153 cubic feet) but falling short of the massive Chevrolet Traverse by five cubes. The Ascent offers standard seating for eight, thanks to three-across benches in both the second and third rows. A pair of second-row captain’s chairs, a no-cost option on all but the base Ascent, limits seating to seven. Regardless, the three-row Subaru provides 20 cubic feet of cargo space behind its third row and 73 cubes with both the second and third rows folded Max PowerPowering the Ascent is a new turbocharged 2.4-liter flat-four engine making 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque, the latter at a low 2000 rpm—that’s 10 more ponies than the turbo four in the Mazda CX-9 but 33 lb-ft less torque. The Ascent’s turbo four, however, is torquier than the V-6s offered in the Traverse, Pilot, and Atlas and significantly more than Subaru’s own 3.6-liter flat-six powerplant. As in every Subaru not named BRZ, the Ascent comes standard with all-wheel drive. A continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) serves as the middleman between the engine and the axles, and a set of steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters accesses eight preset ratios for simulated stepped gearchanges. Subaru claims the Ascent can tow up to 5000 pounds when properly equipped, a figure that betters the Mazda by 1500 pounds and matches the maximum towing capacities of the Chevy, Honda, and Volkswagen. Safe and SoundStandard on every Ascent is Subaru’s EyeSight suite of safety features, which includes automated emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane-departure warning. Additionally, all Ascent trims feature a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The display measures 6.5 inches in the base Ascent but grows to 8.0 inches in the Premium, Limited, and Touring models. Ascending the trim-level ladder adds comfort and convenience items such as a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, heated seats for the first two rows, and a blind-spot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alert. A reverse automated braking system, a power liftgate, and a proximity key with push-button start are optional on the Premium but come standard on Limited and Touring trims. Additionally, the Limited model features leather upholstery, LED headlights, and retractable second-row sunshades, while the top-of-the-line Touring adds ventilated front seats, rain-sensing wipers, a camera-based rearview mirror, navigation, and a panoramic sunroof. Both the navigation system and the sunroof also are available as options on Premium and Limited models. Would this come to Singapore? It certainly looks better than the Tribeca.
  16. For all those who are ready to give a new lease of life to the automotive world, Peugeot is unveiling the new 2008 SUV. As an enthusiastic and fierce supporter of Peugeot's brand vision of an exciting future, it is the ultra modern interpretation of an instinctive and versatile driving experience. A genuine SUV in its dimensions, it clashes with a particularly powerful and distinctive style. Ultra-technological, it adopts the new generation of immersive Peugeot i-Cockpit® 3D, with equipment and driving aids designed by the best know-how Peugeot has to offer. Being multi-energy, it offers the freedom to choose between 3 types of efficient engines: electric, petrol and diesel all offering phenomenally stimulating sensations. The world is changing. New challenges call for new answers throughout the automotive industry. With its 208 years of history, the Peugeot brand is calmly pursuing its commitment in the era of the energy transition. Our exciting and reassuring vision of the future is confirmed once again by the new SUV Peugeot 2008. It shows that technology and pleasure are not incompatible and that a car has the power to amaze. It turns a trip into a journey and offers everyone the mobility they need. The new Peugeot 2008 emerges at the heart of the compact SUV segment, contributing to what is the success of the Peugeot range today: affirmation through design and differentiation through innovation and technology. EXALTING SUV Powerful and distinctive in style, the new 2008 Peugeot SUV is a sculptural and desirable object. It fulfils the ambition to turn over a new and remarkable page in the history of Peugeot SUVs and is fully in line with the current style of the range while displaying its own personality. The balanced lines and overall proportions are those of an SUV, with a recessed windshield that makes the bonnet more horizontal, creating a strong body. The car sits well on its wheels, perfectly shouldered, strong and reassuring. Statutory and with identity, the front incorporates a proud and straight grille (body colour on electric versions), a carved bonnet and LED daytime running lights that fade under the projector in order to resurface below. The faceted and bold profile immediately catches the eye, with different triangular lines. The result is a lively and incisive style, representing a real technical feat for parts pressing: never have flanks had as much volume! These lines end on the tailgate, for an undeniable coherence and overall homogeneity. The style is robust, and even more with the large wheels (690mm), which perfectly fill the arches. The 18" rims have added inserts with three advantages: easier customization, significant weight gain (4 kg across all wheels) and better aerodynamics. A clear upgrade in quality and elegance with the two-tone Black Diamond black headlining, black window strip and the silk-screened C-pillar on the GT Line and GT versions. Muscular with a high beltline, the rear end includes lights connected by a black strip with dual exhaust pipes on the PureTech 130 & 155. As expressive as always, the signature with 3 LED claws is once again a feature here. Be it day and night, you'll find it on the back on all versions and in the projectors of high-end versions. Depending on the destination, the headlights will use LED technology on all finishes. In addition to the usual offer, striking and distinctive exterior shades are available and add even more tone to the style: - Elixir Red, with a coloured varnish to enhance the depth and colour of the shade, - Vertigo Blue, three-layers for a super bright finish, - Fusion Orange, a new metallic colour exclusive for the new SUV Peugeot 2008. Down with monotony! Inside, the colours and materials are meticulously detailed, skilfully combining noble materials and original colours. - subtle, the doors panels decoration includes Orange (on Active) or Blue (on Allure) tampo-printing, - technical sophistication and freshness in the Allure version, with modern "Urbanoïd" light blue upholstery, - dynamic, the GT Line versions offer a chic atmosphere, enhanced by isolated Adamite, - noble and sought after, the GT/e-2008 GT versions combine Alcantara®, leather and technical mesh. Black onyx stitched Adamite on the GT versions, the Alcantara® has an exclusive Greval® grey stitched blue and green on the Peugeot e-2008 GT versions. This cosy interior is embellished on the GT Line and GT versions with bright decorations on the dashboard and the doors panels that have 8 colours that can be picked via the touch screen. EXTENDED EXPERIENCE The spaciousness of the rear seats (a new record for the new CMP platform) makes the new SUV Peugeot 2008 a particularly versatile SUV. Its length of 4.30m and its wheelbase of 2.60m also give it a comfortable boot volume until 434 L (VDA V210). The modularity is ensured by a two-position floor (depending on versions) which provides a virtually flat floor once the bench is folded. With a variety of new storage on board, you will be able to keep everything you need on a daily basis with you. In addition to the traditional door pockets and the glove box, there is ample storage space under the front centre armrest and more in front of the gear stick. Additionally, there is more discreet storage at the bottom of the central console. There you'll find the very convenient induction charging area and its lid, which in an open position can cleverly hold a smartphone. Passengers will also enjoy a passenger compartment full of sunlight thanks to the optional sunroof, offering a wide clear bay. Its opening to the outside preserves the spaciousness for people in the back. Even more technological: the new Peugeot i-Cockpit® 3D The Peugeot i-Cockpit® is still based on the same fundamentals and offers flawless ergonomics for awakening the senses: - a compact steering wheel, for better handling and better grip, - a large HD touch screen at your fingertips, - and now an innovative 3D heads-up receiver, A favourite of our customers and currently present in 5 million Peugeot vehicles around the world, it's a wholly new interpretation which currently equips the new SUV Peugeot 2008. Information is placed in the driver's line of sight. Depending on the version, the Peugeot i-Cockpit® 3D instrument cluster projects it like a hologram. The indications are dynamic and animated: they get closer to the eye depending on their degree of importance or urgency, thereby increasing reactivity by around half a second. Unveiled on the new Peugeot 208, the Peugeot i-Cockpit® 3D is a real innovation, a world first in the segment. It improves driving in every way: efficiency, readability, and safety are at an all-time high. The touch screen can be 10 inches diagonally depending on the version, and it is controlled via touch shortcuts placed next to Toggle Switches or with the new voice command. Accuracy and credibility abound since, in addition to sight, touch is also required when using foamed plastics on the dashboard as well as sophisticated and pleasant materials in many places, such as Alcantara® or Nappa® leather. The door panels and dashboard inserts have a "carbon" look, while the EAT8 gearbox control is 100% electric ("shift and park by wire"), allowing easy and intuitive operation. It is complemented by paddles on the wheel for the driver to take over quickly if needed. Modern, connected and technological Unprecedented and even scarce in this segment, the equipment and driving aids are taken from the upper segments and are at the highest level of Peugeot brand know-how. It's an impressive technological arsenal, including: - Drive Assist plus, which paves the way to semi-autonomous driving. It combines: * the lane departure avoidance system, linked to the Lane Positioning making it possible to choose your position in the lane, *the adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go function in EAT8 automatic gearbox, - Park Assist that automatically manages the steering when entering and leaving a parking spot, with only 60 cm difference between cars when parked, - the latest-generation automatic emergency braking, which also detects pedestrians and cyclists, day and night, from 5km/h to 140 km/h), - active warning of involuntary lane crossing (or the roadside), - driver warning alert, recommending a break if necessary, - automatic switching of high beam, to focus even more on the road, - further recognition of signs (one-way, stop) with recommendation for speed signs, - active blind spot monitoring, - the electric parking brake. As the co-pilots of everyday life, smartphones will also be in the new 2008. Its information will be integrated into the central screen thanks to MirrorScreen compatibility including MirrorLink™ connection protocols, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. In addition to the induction charging zone, up to 4 USB sockets are available depending on the version (2 in the front including one USB-C and 2 on the back). The routes will be optimized with TomTom® Traffic connected 3D navigation, which gives real-time traffic status and recalculates routes automatically. The driver will also be informed about risk areas, surrounding points of interest. The most demanding music lovers will be pleased ; the music lovers will be delighted. Developed in partnership with the French high-end specialist in high-fidelity sound FOCAL®, the premium Hi-Fi system of the new SUV Peugeot 2008 is the result of more than 3 years of work. Already present in the Hi-Fi versions of the Peugeot 3008, 5008 and 508, this premium equipment is now available on the new SUV Peugeot 2008. In addition to an optimal acoustic layout, the 10 loudspeakers use technologies patented FOCAL® usually reserved living room installations: 4 aluminum inverted dome tweeters, four 165mm Polyglass woofers, 1 Polyglass central speaker and a Power Flower™ triple coil subwoofer. They are paired with a 12-channel 515 W amplifier, providing a detailed, rich and dynamic music scene. EXCITING CHOICE Based on the new and efficient modular platform of latest generation CMP (Common Modular Platform), the new SUV Peugeot 2008 is a multi-energy vehicle. It offers the freedom to choose the type of motorization according to your needs and own uses: 100% electric, petrol or diesel. For a la carte driving, it has a driving modes selector depending on the version: "Eco", "Normal" and "Sport". To escape even further, the optional Grip Control will be connected with the hill assist descent control (HADC) to perfectly and safely control your vehicle and its trajectory in steep slopes. Efficiency was the cornerstone of the development, all engines receive controlled air intakes, directed air flow wheels or even a streamlined underbody, all for a controlled air flow, and therefore an optimised air penetration coefficient. The range is available in 4 levels of finish: Active, Allure, GT Line and GT, all available in 100% electric or thermical. The high-end GT Line and GT versions have distinctive stylistic attributes: - full LED projectors with 3-claw light signature, - diamond 18" aluminium wheels with inserts, - meticulously-detailed interior: black trim, Adamite colour stitching, mood lighting, dynamic seats, aluminium pedals. Efficient and responsible: the combustion engines meet the latest Euro 6 standards In line with the latest Euro 6 standards, the internal combustion engines feature the latest technological advances of the Peugeot brand and are all equipped with Stop & Start and a particle filter. For even more ease and driving comfort, some of these engines can be linked with the latest 8-speed automatic gearbox (EAT8). The petrol engines are structured around the 3 cylinder-engine, a 1.2L engine size and adherence to the Euro 6d standard: - PureTech 100 S&S BVM6, - PureTech 130 S&S BVM6 or EAT8, - PureTech 155 S&S EAT8 (only for GT). For Diesel, the offer is with the 4-cylinder engine with a 1.5L engine size (Euro 6d-temp standards at launch): - BlueHDi 100 S&S BVM6, - BlueHDi 130 S&S EAT8. Exciting Full Electric driving pleasure Because electric can be magical too, this first 100% electric SUV Peugeot makes it possible to reach a new world of sensations. The driver will enjoy a high level of panache, in total operating silence and no vibrations. This pleasure is accompanied by the freedom to travel in the city centre even in the Green Zones with restricted traffic. The engine with a power of 100 kW (136 hp) and a torque of 260 Nm available immediately ensure a daily ease in all situations. The 50kWh high capacity battery provides a range of up to 310 km according to the new WLTP standard. This battery is guaranteed for 8 years or 160,000 km for 70% of its charging capacity. The display of energy flows in the central display as well as in the Peugeot i-Cockpit® 3D receiver is ludic and make it easy and intuitive to understand how the traction chain works. Two intuitive modes of energy recovery when braking are available and accessible directly from the gear stick: - Drive ("D"), recovery is standard, for driving similar to a petrol or diesel vehicle - Brake ("B"), recovery allows deceleration directly from the accelerator pedal The batteries are optimally installed in the floor, ensuring that choosing an electric version won't affect the performance of the new SUV Peugeot 2008. This ensures the same room and boot volume as the internal combustion versions. An essential marker of the Peugeot brand, the dynamic behaviour of the new SUV Peugeot e-2008 has been the subject of careful attention and provides a touch of road and driving pleasure comparable to petrol and diesel versions. The drive axles have been adapted and the weight distribution is optimal. The charging time depends on the power available: -16h for full charge from a Legrand® Green Up™ plug, - between 5h15 and 8h for a complete charge with a WallBox (three phase 11 kW with optional charger or single phase 7.4 kW) - 30mn to recover 80% of battery with the 100 kW public terminals, the thermal regulation of the battery makes it possible to use terminals with this power. The programmable delayed charge is available from the navigation screen or from your smartphone with the MyPeugeot® application. This can also start charging at any time and allows you to check the charge level remotely. For the highest level of thermal comfort, specific equipment has been developed: - a 5 kW heating resistor and a 3kW climate compressor which are supplied by the traction battery, to provide heating and cooling in the passenger compartment, - a heat pump and automatic regulation of the passenger compartment temperature to guarantee a level of comfort equivalent to the internal combustion versions. The system is suitable for optimized energy consumption, - pleasant heated seats (depending on the version), - thermal pre-conditioning programmable from the touchscreen or remotely via the MyPeugeot® smartphone app. Offering an ideal temperature in the cockpit as of the rise on board, this comfort is not done to the detriment of autonomy: when the vehicle is connected, energy necessary comes directly from the terminal of refill. The new SUV Peugeot e-2008 does not have a specific silhouette but some captivating details that subtly underline its electrified personality: - a sparkling dichroic Lion, with reflections alternating between green and blue depending on the angle of view, - a specific "e" monogram on the front fenders and the tailgate, - an elegant, body-coloured front grille with beads, - exclusive seat upholstery in Alcantara© "Greval Grey" on e-2008 GT, - finally, the on-board experience is complemented by a display specific to the electric version in the 3D receiver as well as in the touch screen. And because electric isn't only about motorization, the Peugeot brand is offering a full practical and didactic ecosystem to calmly support customers in their daily travel and use. Three services will be on offer from launch: - Easy-Charge will facilitate access to different charging solutions tailored to the needs of users. At home or at the office, a panel of charging solutions (reinforced plugs, Wallbox, Smart-Wallbox,...) will be proposed. Peugeot will also accompany its customers in the installation thanks to a partnership with specialized companies. In parallel, an offer of public charging solutions is available via Free2Move Services. A step of load gives access to the broadest network of load with more than 110,000 terminals in Europe via the PlugSurfing partner. The preselection of the terminals is done according to the distance, the speed or the price of the refill. Guidance towards the selected terminal can be carried out starting from the application Free2Move Services or the connected navigation of the vehicle. - Easy-Move will ensure our customers' mobility. A tool for planning and organizing long trips via Free2Move Services will offer the best journeys taking into account the autonomy and the location of the charging terminals on the way. For clear and serene driving, the route will be displayed directly on the touch screen of the vehicle. An extended mobility offer is included in the vehicle rent and allows you to rent an internal combustion vehicle according to your needs. Finally, a tool in the MyPeugeot application provides eco-driving tips to optimize the autonomy of your new SUV Peugeot e-2008, - Serenity to support our customers throughout their journey with the new SUV Peugeot e-2008. New simulators and digital routes will help you to find out more about electric on the Peugeot brand websites, service contracts and dedicated roadside assistance may include financing. A certificate guaranteeing the level of capacity of the vehicle's battery will facilitate resale.

    2019 Toyota RAV4

    Would this come and sell well in Singapore? First Look: With the 2019 RAV4, Toyota gives its best-selling crossover a new rugged look http://www.nydailynews.com/autos/news/2019-toyota-rav4-preview-article-1.3900050 Considered the first-ever compact crossover, the Toyota RAV4 debuted in 1994. This brings up two thoughts: 1) that CUVs have been around much longer than the current sales craze indicates, and 2) how are there only four generations of RAV4 in 24 years? Well, the first-generation slogged through a 16-year cycle, but as consumer demands increased, vehicle life cycles decreased in retrospect. Which brings us to today’s world debut of the all-new 2019 RAV4. And the grandfather of the crossover segment is looking younger than ever: less cute ‘ute and more brute youth. Finally fashionable At first glance, the only indication that the new RAV4 is indeed a Toyota is its ever-familiar oval emblem. Outside of that, the crossover evokes brawn and strength—words that generally describe true body-on-frame trucks and SUVs rather than car-based, unibody crossovers. But the 2019 RAV4 is full of bold character lines, chiseled features, and a grille that looks just as annoyed to be sitting in traffic as you are. Even its fenders, which now feature squared-off black plastic cladding instead of body-colored metal look (and I can’t believe I’m saying this) appropriate and attractive. The new RAV4 will drop a trim (Platinum) but details for the full lineup are sparse. However, an XSE Hybrid model is all-new and with it comes standard two-tone exterior paint. A black roof is paired with shades of gray, white, silver, and a new blue to give the hybrid a distinctive exterior style but in an atypical hybrid way (i.e., not frumpy looking). Adventure grade models also receive the new double-color scheme but with a white roofline similar to smaller sibling CH-R. This is available only on black, blue, and a new of-the-land greenish hue called Lunar Rock. For 2019, with the Platinum trim gone, the Limited is left as the sole heir to RAV4 luxury. This top-of-the-line model is outfitted with 19-inch wheels and chrome accents to further distinguish its premium-ness. Tech and touchpoints Of course, the Limited receives more than just flashy alloys and shiny bits. Standard features include a power moonroof, 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support, a newly-designed 7-inch infotainment touchscreen, and a rearview mirror camera, which is a North American-first for Toyota. Similar to what is available on General Motors’ premium brands, Toyota’s Digital Display Rear Mirror looks and acts like a conventional rearview mirror but toggle a switch and it will also display a high-definition, wide-angle view of what’s behind the vehicle. The Limited doesn’t hoard all the fancy gear, though, as all 2019 RAV4 models will be equipped with Entune 3.0, which includes Verizon-powered Wi-Fi connectivity, Amazon Alexa compatibility, and Apple CarPlay integration. Available Entune upgrades include Plus for a larger 8-inch touchscreen and satellite radio or Premium, which adds navigation. Also available will be up to five USB ports, wireless device charging, and an all-new 11-speaker JBL sound system. Increased performance capabilities The 2019 RAV4 will be powered by two engines: a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder paired with an 8-speed automatic, and a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder second-generation Toyota Hybrid System II engine mated to a CVT. Horsepower and fuel economy figures are not yet available but the automaker says consumers can expect improved, even best-in-class, numbers with the new model. Driving dynamics are said to have improved as well, particularly with the XSE Hybrid, which Toyota claims is the best-handling of the RAV4 lineup. The new hybrid features a sport-tuned suspension along with improved shock absorbers and springs. There also are three all-wheel-drive systems for the 2019 RAV4. Entry-level models can be optioned with the carryover AWD system, hybrids are available with AWD-i, and a new-to-Toyota dynamic torque vectoring AWD, which will be standard on Limited gasoline models and Adventure grade RAV4s. Featuring a rear driveline disconnect, the new torque-vectoring AWD system can send 50 percent of the engine torque to the rear wheels as well as distribute it to the left or right to improve handling. Additionally, when equipped with AWD, Adventure models are outfitted with Multi-Terrain Select as standard. The new system offers four driver-selectable traction modes (snow, mud, sand, and rocks) that can be adjusted on the fly. But performance isn’t the only priority in the new RAV4. For 2019, the lineup will be equipped with Toyota Safety Sense 2.0, the automaker’s second generation of advanced safety and driver-assistance technologies. Standard on all vehicles, the technology package includes: pre-collision with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, automatic high beam as well as new-for-2019 lane tracing assist (enabled only with ACC) and road sign assist (identifies and alerts to upcoming signage). The 2019 Toyota RAV4 will go on sale at the end of this year while hybrid models will follow suit in early 2019. We expect final specs and pricing closer to its on-sale date, if not sooner.

    2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross

    Remember the eclipse? His SUV brother is born. Front foggies seems too big though. Remember Mit used to say they may evo their SUVs (somehow they retracted that statement recently). Maybe this is the model they are referring to. Wonder if this will arrive in SG. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g79iujwY930

    Kia Stonic

    Following sister car Hyundai Kona's launch, Kia pulled the wraps off the Stonic, their version of the compact crossover. Personally, I prefer the look of this over the Kona although it's clear that the Stonic looks just like a raised up Rio hatchback with an identical interior as the Rio too.

  22. All-new mid-sized Peugeot 3008 SUV gets more space and brand-new interior tech The new Peugeot 3008 SUV was revealed at the Paris Motor Show in September 2016. Set to go on sale in the UK in early 2017, Peugeot says the car will be the most advanced Peugeot ever sold, with plenty of in-car tech and a lower overall weight compared to its predecessor to improve the car’s economy and handling. The completely new Peugeot 3008 will be the first production car to use the firm’s new version of its i-cockpit digital instrument display and infotainment system. We expect it to become one of the best in class when the car is launched. Owing to the drop in the car’s weight, Peugeot is confident the car is better to drive and more efficient. Interior space is also up compared to the previous 3008. The new 3008 will be available with two petrol and four diesel engines, and trim levels will include GT and GT Line. The original 3008 was a mix of MPV and SUV, but the one on display in Paris is much more an SUV, allowing it to compete directly with rivals such as the Volkswagen Tiguan, Nissan Qashqai, Ford Kuga and Renault Kadjar. The new 3008 has already been crash tested by Euro NCAP and achieved the full five-star safety rating, thanks in part to safety technology like lane-departure warning and speed-limit assistance systems. The car will be available to order in November and exact specifications and prices will be released near the time. Peugeot 3008 designThe new Peugeot 3008 is instantly recognisable as an SUV, with a raised ride height and a bold front end. There’s plenty of chrome too, with the shiny metal surrounding the grille and foglights, while there’s also an eye-catching front protective skid plate. The sharp headlights are cleaved in two by a piece of the front bumper, while creases abound on the bonnet and down the side of the car. Black plastic cladding around the wheelarches and at the bottom of the doors lends a rugged appearance. The roof and roof supports are available in contrasting colours, giving the appearance that the roof it floating. Chrome trim runs from the front windscreen support over the roof to the rear spoiler. The rear light clusters are divided in three, and the upper part of the tailgate is finished in black and the bottom half in body colour. The rear bumper is a combination of black plastic and chrome. InteriorThere’s more space inside the 3008 than before despite the car’s external dimensions being reduced. That’s largely due to it having a longer wheelbase, meaning there’s a longer gap between the front and rear wheels. There’s plenty of space in the rear seats, and the boot measures an impressive 520 litres when the rear seats are in place; substantially more than you’ll get in the Nissan Qashqai or Renault Kadjar. Fold the seats, and boot space grows to 1,580 litres. The Peugeot 3008 is claimed to have class-leading connectivity, with technology including wireless smartphone charging and MirrorLink compatibility (a system the mirrors your smartphone’s screen on the car’s own screen). Android Auto and Apple CarPlay will also be available, allowing you to control many of your smartphone’s apps from the car’s touchscreen. The new 3008 will also be the first Peugeot to feature the firm’s second-generation i-Cockpit system. It’s a digital instrument display that replaces the car’s analogue dials and can be configured with a range of information including speed, fuel economy, available range and sat-nav instructions. The system is similar in concept to Audi’s Virtual Cockpit. EnginesThe new Peugeot 3008 engine range comprises of two petrol engines and four diesels. The petrol range is made up of a 128bhp 1.2-litre engine and a 163bhp 1.6-litre unit. The four diesel choices are a pair of 1.6-litre engines developing 98bhp and 118bhp and two 2.0-litre engines producing 148bhp and 177bhp. The most powerful petrol and diesel engines will only be available with a six-speed automatic gearbox; the rest of the range will have six-speed manuals. We’ll have to wait until November for information on running costs, but Peugeot has already said at least one diesel engine will emit less than 100g/km of carbon dioxide, making it exempt from road tax. New Peugeot 3008 hybridOur sister title Auto Express has been told the new 3008 will be among the first Peugeots to offer a plug-in hybrid engine. The 3008 hybrid won’t be available from launch, but with expected emissions of less than 50g/km, fuel economy around the 150mpg mark and an electric-only range of around 30mpg, it’s worth waiting for if you’re seeking the lowest daily running costs The 2017 hybrid 3008 will feature a small petrol engine powering the front wheels, and electric motors powering the rear wheels. It’s likely this technology will be at the expense of some of the car’s boot space. Safety & equipmentTwo trim levels will be available when the car goes on sale. The new Peugeot 3008 GT Line will feature LED headlamps all round, wireless inductive charging and satellite navigation. It’ll also come with the ‘Safety Plus Pack’, which comprises blind spot detection, lane keeping assistance and a driver attention alert system that can detect the driver’s level of fatigue. There are also adaptive headlights that automatically adjust their beam to stop them from blinding oncoming traffic. The Peugeot 3008 GT model will come with the most powerful engine in the range – the 177bhp 2.0-litre diesel – and a six-speed automatic gearbox. The GT includes 19-inch alloy wheels, a panoramic sunroof, a synthetic leather interior with contrasting stitching, and seats with electric adjustment and a massage function. Other standard-fit equipment includes adaptive cruise control, which can keep a set distance to the car in front on the motorway, and an electric tailgate that can be opened by waving your foot under the rear bumper. The 3008’s high standard of built-in safety has already been proven with a five-star result in independent Euro NCAP crash testing. This excellent result is partly thanks to the impressive roster of safety features fitted across the range, which includes speed-limit sign detection and recommendation. Other advanced systems include active safety braking and a collision warning system. This is linked to an automatic emergency braking system that lessens the severity of impacts or avoids collisions altogether by reducing the car’s speed when an oncoming hazard is detected. Lane-departure warning and an attention assist system are also available, as is automatic high-beam assistance, dipping your headlights automatically to avoid dazzling oncoming drivers. However, we’ve not ret received confirmation as to which systems will be standard on each trim level. Another practical feature available on the 3008 is parking assistance, which allows the car to steer itself into a parking space, leaving you to just operate the pedals. Optional scooterOne novel option is the electrically assisted ‘e-kick’ scooter. It folds and stows in the car’s boot when not in use and can be charged there using a docking station while the car is being driven. It has a range of 7.5 miles and takes an hour to charge. Peugeot says that with a top speed of 15mph, it’s intended to make journeys through city centres easier. There’s no word on price yet, however. http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/news/153458/all-new-peugeot-3008-suv-on-sale-in-2017

    2017 Opel Crossland X

    Opel Singapore has just launched the new Crossland X. Launch Price at SGD102,888. Probably replacing the Mokka X. http://www.opel.com.sg/vehicles/opel-range/cars/crossland-x/index.html?gclid=CjwKCAjw6ZLOBRALEiwAxzyCW1ILCXQTrvI_kHyJxhRfIt6y_wjbCpR6qwbymj0Xb-sgO2ZzG9zHMBoC438QAvD_BwE https://www.carzone.ie/reviews/new-car-reviews/Opel/Crossland-X/2017/548/ Farewell to Opel ’s family favourite, the Meriva, and hello to the car that replaces it for 2017, the Crossland X . The new Crossland X takes aim at popular cars like the Nissan Juke and Renault's Captur, and it blends downscaled SUV looks with impressive levels of interior space. It’s also the first Opel to be built under the German manufacturer’s merge with Peugeot PSA, so it is based on the same platform as the latest Peugeot 2008. We recently took the Crossland X for a week-long test drive on Irish roads to see if has the recipe for success in an increasingly competitive corner of the market. The Crossland X shares many styling similarities the popular Opel Mokka X SUV, although it isn’t as rugged from the outside. Features like the front grille and rear lights are recognisable from other cars in Opel ’s range, while its raised ride height and tall bumpers lend it an SUV stance. Choice of specification in Ireland consists of two models, SC and SE, while the base specification SC gets 16-inch alloy wheels and distinctive LED daytime running lights as standard. Our test car is a higher specification SE model, so it gains larger 17-inch alloy wheels and dark tinted windows. The Crossland X is more spacious inside than you would expect, with excellent head and leg room for front and rear seat passengers. Space in the rear is particularly impressive due to the flat floor, and boot space is respectable at 410 litres, trump rivals like the Nissan Juke. There is also an optional versatility pack which allows the rear seat bench to slide forwards and backwards and further increases boot space. The driving position is high which means it offers a commanding view of the road, and there’s enough support from the seats for comfort during longer drives. The quality of the plastics throughout the cabin is mostly good, but they are scratchy in certain areas such as beneath the steering wheel and lower doors. It’s nice to note that all Crossland X models have a user-friendly 7-inch colour touchscreen system in the centre of the dashboard as standard, incorporating Opel ’s Intellilink system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Also included is Opel ’s OnStar with a Wi-Fi hotspot, roadside assistance call out and lots of other features too, so it's fair to say that the Crossland X is more connected and smartphone-friendly than many of its rivals. The Crossland X is available with either a 1.2-litre petrol engine available in two different states of tune (81hp or 110hp), or a larger 1.6-litre CDTi diesel engine in 99hp or 120hp variants. We drove the 120hp 1.6 CDTi diesel with a six-speed-manual gearbox and it offers an ideal mix of performance and economy. 0-100km/h is possible in under ten seconds and it cruises confidently at motorway speeds, while we covered over 600 kilometres of driving in the midlands and managed 5-litres per 100 kilometres of driving in fuel economy (56MPG). The Crossland X has an accommodating suspension setup which means it is comfortable out on the road, but it isn’t very agile through corners. Light steering helps during parking, but again, there is little feedback from the steering when cornering. This is unlikely to affect family buyers who will value comfort over driving dynamics. Despite its SUV looks, the Crossland X isn’t available with four-wheel-drive, but the front-wheel-drive setup offers sufficial amounts of grip. Family buyers will appreciate standard safety features such as lane departure warning, traffic sign recognition, rear parking sensors and hill start assist. Our test car has desirable optional extras such as a panoramic sunroof, front parking sensors and Opel ’s lighting pack, but the asking price is bumped up accordingly and it can get expensive quickly. The Crossland X is a worthy successor to the Opel Meriva MPV, bringing more style and desirability than its predecessor. Family buyers will appreciate the Crossland’s generous interior space, along with the strong serving of standard equipment. That said, it feels and looks very similar to the latest Opel Mokka X, so differentiating between the two models can be confusing, and it also isn’t as fun to drive as some of its more-established rivals, such as the Peugeot 2008. Taking all things into account, the Crossland X makes for a well-priced alternative to cars like the Nissan Juke with best-in-class space and practicality.
