3 Things To Know About The 2018 Subaru Viziv Tourer Concept

subaru viziv tourer (1)

It has been years since we last saw Subaru come up with a new model as it has been busy showcasing new design features under the Viziv name. After introducing the first concept in 2013, Subaru has launched a new one every year since then. This latest concept is called the Subaru Viziv Tourer and it was introduced during the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.

1. Exterior

Just like its predecessor, the Viziv Tourer will use the company’s new Dynamic X Solid design language, though this one is a bit more aggressive than past concepts. In front, there’s the same hexagonal grille but the headlamps are sharper and the fender vents have muscular surrounds. There’s an aggressive splitter on the lower bumper that’s made from carbon fiber, as well as the wheel arch inserts and the side skirts.

There are no door handles and the side mirrors have been replaced by cameras. The overall profile is that of a sporty hatchback with a sloping roofline and quarter windows.

2. Interior

We don’t know anything yet about the interior of this new concept from Subaru, though we heard that it has a four-seat layout for maximum comfort. This configuration, of course, will remain with the concept as this could not be carried over to a production model. We all know that wagons and hatchbacks must provide seating for five passengers, at the very least.

Tech features include the EyeSight system, a new radar system, and a new GPS and navigation system. All of these would work to give the car semi-autonomous driving assistance and eliminate accidents.

3. Drivetrain

The Tourer will be a gasoline-only vehicle. It will be powered by a boxer engine, but that’s as far as we’re able to know. The Japanese automaker has yet to reveal output details of that said engine. Interestingly enough, Subaru chose to keep hybrids and electric engines out of this concept. Some Viziv concepts were hybrids, but the Tourer will only be running on gasoline.

Top 4 Reasons for You to Buy the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe

What happens when you combine the winning formulas of the Mercedes-Benz CLS and the Mercedes-AMG GT? You get the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe. This is the reason why there was so much hype surrounding the high-performance car’s world premiere and why it was flocked by people since the press days of the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.

Mercedes is yet to reveal the pricing of the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe. However, it is already given that it will be very expensive considering it will take on the $85,000 to $194,800 Porsche Panamera. What we know so far is that it will roll out for buyers in mid-2018.

So why should you spend your hard earned cash for it? Here are four reasons why you should put the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe in your checklist if you are looking to buy a high-performance luxury car:

1. Unique Addition to the Mercedes-AMG GT Family

The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe successfully makes itself stand out from the Mercedes-AMG GT family with its distinct four-door feature. The rest of its siblings from the base GT going up to the GT R have two-door designs.

2. Athletic and Classy Design

The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door is defined by its long bonnet, Panamericana front grille, squinting Multibeam LED headlamps, jetwing front bumper design, huge air ducts, thin taillights, rear diffuser, low greenhouse, retractable rear wing, quadruple exhaust tips, and a combination of AMG performance wheels and tires. On the other hand, its curvaceous and smooth exterior is an excellent manifestation of Mercedes’ “Sensual Purity” design philosophy.

3. Luxurious Aura

The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe also carries the DNA of the Mercedes-Benz CLS. If you strip away all the Mercedes-AMG GT elements of the four-door high-performance car leaving only its shell, it can be noticed that its form is all too similar to the Mercedes-AMG CLS 53. That’s because both are riding on the E-Class platform.

The interior of the two only vary in layout but you can find that most of the tech within the AMG GT 4-Door Coupe are just spiced up versions of the ones found in the E-Class and CLS. However, the arrangement of the controls of the AMG GT 4-Door Coupe follows its AMG GT siblings.

4. Performance

The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe is available in three performance configurations and its power is governed by an AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9G transmission. It starts with the Mercedes-AMG GT 53 4MATIC with 3.0-liter inline-six that can deliver 435 hp combined with EQ Boost providing it an extra 22 hp, and 520 Nm of torque. Next is the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 4MATIC equipped with a 4.0-liter biturbo V8 engine capable of delivering 585 hp and 800 Nm of torque.

The top trim of the range is the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4MATIC+. It has the engine of the AMG GT 63 4MATIC but with an upgrade that lets it produce 639 hp and 900 Nm of torque. The auto can reach speeds of up to 310 km/h, and its 0-100 km/h acceleration can be achieved in merely 3.4 seconds.

Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe: One of the Most Awaited at Geneva Motor Show

One of the most anticipated cars in the 2018 Geneva Motor Show is the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe. The car is the production version of the Mercedes-AMG GT Concept shown at the same auto show last year.

As its world premiere draws near, Mercedes-Benz has been releasing teasers of the AMG GT 4-Door Coupe to further build up hype for it. Above is a video preview giving us a glimpse of the primary styling features of the auto. It provides us a lot of idea what to expect from the vehicle without giving away everything. The 23-second clip ends with a shot of it from above, which display the car with all its four doors open.

We also learn from the video that the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe possesses the biturbo V8 engine of AMG. Then, it carries a 4MATIC all-wheel drive system of Mercedes, which provides more traction to the high-performance car. The official specs of the vehicle’s power unit are not yet available but it should be somewhere in between the output offered by its two-door sibling called the Mercedes-AMG GT R.

Going back to the concept form of the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe, its maker earlier promised us an output of somewhere around 800 hp. However, that comes with a hybrid setup. So far, there is no indication that the V8 combustion engine of the car’s production version is now paired to electric motors. That would probably come later though in the top trim of the model.

Here are some official teaser images and spy shots of the upcoming Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe:

Update

An image of what appears to be the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe just came out just after the release of its teaser video. The leaked image shows the entirety of the car without any camo.

3 Main Expectations About the Audi Q8 Sport Concept

audi q8 sport concept (1)

Audi already unveiled the Q8 concept at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in January 2017. For the time time, the luxury vehicle brand showcased the Audi Q8 Sport concept at the 87th Geneva International Motor Show.

Check out the 3 things we can expect from the Audi Q8 Sport concept based on a source:

1. Engine

The Audi Q8 Sport concept is highlighted by its high-performance feature. The vehicle may not carry with it the S or RS trim of its brand but its power unit is something to behold.

Beneath the hood of the auto lies a 3.0-liter V6 engine matched with an electronic supercharger. The hybrid unit produces 476 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. The configuration of the vehicle allows it to accelerate from zero to 62 mph in just 4.7 seconds.

2. Design

The Q8 is Audi’s new entry to the full-size luxury sport utility vehicle segment of the market. It is defined by prestige through the use of emotional styling found in the SUV coupes’ of the brand and its main competitors. However, the automaker made sure that its legroom is not compromised. The Q8 is 5.02 meters long and 3 meters in wheelbase.

To distinguish the Q8 Sport concept from its earlier standard version, Audi made some cosmetic changes into it. The one shown in Geneva features larger exhaust tips, blacked out accents in the body to replace the chrome trim, and black honeycomb grille similar to the RS line as an upgrade to the chrome crisscross styling found in the original Q8.

3. Arrival

Audi said that the Q8 concept reflects approximately 95 percent of the things that will be found in its production version. Slight finishing touches will only be incorporated in the final version of the product. Therefore, the Q8 is estimated to reach production stage by 2018. The Q8 Sport is expected to come shortly after its standard model hits the market.

5 Key Features of the Alpine A110

renault alpine (1)

The new Alpine A110 was recently unveiled at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show. The sports car is its maker’s response to the Porsche 718 Cayman.

So, should Porsche be worried about the new 718 rival from Renault‘s Alpine sports car brand in the form of the A110?

See the five key features of the Alpine A110 here to decide for yourself if it is indeed a worthy adversary to the Porsche 718:

1. Engine

The Alpine A110 is a mid-engined sports car. It houses a 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The output of the unit is 249 hp with 320 Nm of torque. The power is directed to the rear wheels and distributed through a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

2. Performance

The Alpine A110’s engine output may be lower than the Cayman S by around 50 hp. However, thanks to the lighter body of the A110, it can outrun the Cayman S from a zero to 62 mph sprint.

Alpine claimed that its sports car can achieve that kind of run in just 4.5 seconds. Then its top speed can reach up to 155 mph.

3. Exterior

The A110 carries the styling found in the Alpine Vision Concept that came out in 2016. Based on the photos of the A110 and the Vision Concept, everything seems to be similar in the design of the two. The lighting system appears to be updated to incorporate the latest tech of Alpine plus the wheels offer a new look though.

The A110 has that retro-futuristic approach in its design. It still possesses the classy A110 “Berlinette” genes but it combines with it a 21st century detailing found in its concept version.

4. Interior

The A110 gets a mix of high-end leather, aluminum and carbon fiber trim in its interior surfaces. The materials used and layout of it its seats, dashboard, controls, steering wheel, foot pedals and other parts inside once again follow the car’s concept form last year.

5. Arrival

The car is expected to arrive late this year or in the early part of 2018. Its starting price is estimated to be at least £60,000.
