Along with the newly conceptualised Touran and the updated Sharan, Volkswagen presented the new Passat Alltrack. In addition, the Sport Coupé Concept GTE offers an outlook on the future progressive design language at Volkswagen.
In the new edition of the Touran – the most successful MPV with 1.9 million units sold – is getting a successor. The third generation Touran impresses with a contemporary and sporty look, yet it offers considerably more space and has a very versatile interior. A luggage compartment volume of up to 1980 litres, six new economic engine choices and a line-up of assistance systems, which are pioneering in its class, make the Touran a perfect driving companion. The infotainment area also takes a high priority. A total of five radio and radio-navigation units are available for the upgraded Touran, and it is possible to integrate smartphones via "App Connect" according to the type of mobile device.
We quite liked the 12C we drove previously but McLaren says we’ll like the new 650S better but before we delve into the new car, let’s take a second to remember what we loved about its predecessor in the first place. For one, the 12C was capable of a silly pace and was more rocketship than car. Being pin sharp around the apex and having an almost telepathic steering feel didn’t hurt either.
But most of all for all its cosmic performance, it settles down into a pussy cat at the push of a button. While it might not sound as good as a Ferrari V8, it definitely rides around town better than one.
Initially envisioned as a stablemate to the 12C, McLaren claims that the interest for the 650S has been so overwhelming that they’ve decided to ...
The LTA has made it clear that any unlicensed cabbie using a private vehicle to ferry passengers around in exchange for cash, can be charged for breaking the law.
The said laws fall under Section 101(1) of the Road Traffic Act and under Section 3(1) of the Motor Vehicles (Third Party Risks & Compensation) Act. Under the first law, those convicted can either face a fine of up to $3000, and/or a jail term not longer than 6 months. The vehicle used in the act may also be impounded. Under the second law, the guilty will face a fine of up to S$1,000 and/or up to three months' in prison. They will also be disqualified from holding or obtaining a driving licence for 1 year.
LTA’s reminder comes after the recent rise in popularity for third-party taxi booking apps. New basic regulations for said apps will be introduced by the Q2 of 2015 to better safeguard commuters. They have also made it clear that all third-party taxi-booking services will have to comply with local laws, which means only licensed taxis and drivers with valid Taxi Driver’s Vocational Licences can ferry passengers around of monetary reward.
Automobili Lamborghini presented the Lamborghini LP 750-4 Superveloce at the Salon de l’Automobile in Geneva. With increased power, lower weight, improved aerodynamics and innovative technologies the Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce is the most pure incarnation of a Lamborghini to date.
The 6.5 liter, naturally aspirated V12 engine in the Lamborghini Aventador has been redesigned for the Superveloce and equipped with a completely new lightweight exhaust system. Improving the engine responsiveness of the original Aventador, maximum power output now reaches 552 kW / 750 hp at 8,400 rpm. In order to achieve an enriched torque curve especially at high revs, both Variable Valve Timing and Variable Intake System have been optimized. The maximum torque is 690 Nm at 5,500 rpm, with an increased maximum engine speed of 8,500 rpm.
To the uninitiated, no one would guess that this Nissan crossover sports possesses anything less than a 1.6 or 1.8-litre powerplant under the hood. However, the fact is that the Qashqai was recently launched with a tiny 1.2-litre engine that surprisingly packs enough 'oomph' for day-to-day urban driving.
The 4-cylinder turbocharged motor pushes out 114bhp and 165Nm of torque, figures that are not dissimilar to the naturally-aspirated 1.6-litre engines from most Japanese manufacturers. Not only does this small engine give the car fairly good fuel economy for its size at about 12km/L, but it also puts the car into Category A COE, making it rather competitively-priced next to its competitors.
It is common knowledge that the climate is changing and not for the better. As a growing and developing nation, we are consuming and emitting more carbon than ever. To address the issue, the government came up with the National Climate Change Strategy (NCCS) in 2008. The NCCS was a result of the cooperation between the various governing bodies; namely the National Environmental Authority (NEA) and the Ministry of Environment and Water Resources (MEWR). The purpose of the NCCS was and still is to tackle the threat of climate change, which also includes efforts at mitigation. Effective mitigation means cutting emissions, and an assessment that states that global emissions need to be cut by fifty percent from 1990 levels by 2050, with ...
SMRT-operated lines have suffered from numerous service disruptions recently. There were 2 incidents yesterday, and that adds to the 3 that have already occurred over the past 9 days.
Last Thursday’s disruption started at 5.35pm, when track faults at Clementi and Lakeside stations resulted in a slowdown from Queenstown to Boon Lay. Bus bridging services were activated. The issue was resolved by 7.12pm.
On the same day, a signalling fault stopped all trains between Haw Par Villa and HarbourFront. 4 trains with passengers onboard were manually driven to the nearest stations, where the free bridging service will take over. Normal service was resumed at 8.11am.
