4 Things We Need To Take Note Of Regarding The SsangYong Musso Pickup

SsangYong Musso (12)

South Korean brand SsangYong brought their new Musso pickup to the 2018 Geneva Motor Show not to compete with the Fords and Chevrolets of the truck segment, but to carve a niche of its own. Musso is the same name being used by the brand for its line of affordable SUVs, which is literally sending a message to the truck enthusiasts out there that the Musso will be cheaper compared to a Ford Ranger and a Chevy Silverado.

1. Design

The Musso is similarly designed to SsangYong’s Rexton SUV since they both use the same architecture—body-on-frame construction made out of high-grade steel. It has tones of useful features and functions like a load deck with a rear that folds flat, giving tons of space to the owner.

2. Interior

What you’ll find inside the SsangYong Musso is exactly what you’ll expect from a South Korean automaker. The design is pristine and everything is well-appointed—from the dashboard to the connectivity functions. The dashboard, in particular, hosts a mounted eight-inch touchscreen that comes standard across the whole range. The tech suite includes DAB radio, Bluetooth, and MP3 connectivity. For the higher variants, there’s an option for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

3. Powertrain

Under the hood, the SsangYong Musso is quite impressive. The powertrain is being headed by a 2.2-liter turbo diesel that can now churn out 181 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. This is an increase of 5 horsepower and 15 pound-feet of torque from the e-XDi220 that SsangYong built.

4. Solid Truck

The SsangYong Musso pickup may not be your first choice. It may not even be your second choice, but it brings a lot to the table—everything you would want to have in your pickup truck. That being said, this means that the South Korean brand has the opportunity to carve its very own niche in this tough market.

3 Factors That Make The New Fiat 124 Spider S-Design Special

Fiat 124 Spider S-Design Special (8)

Fiat launched another variant of its ever-popular Fiat 124 Spider at the Geneva Auto Show. Remember, the Spider 124 was revived in 2016 after 50 years of dormancy to compete with the likes of Mazda Mx-5 Miata. The Italian roadster, however, was decidedly more stylish than the Miata, thanks to Fiat’s decision to come up with various variants and trims, including an Abarth model and a racing edition.

1. Exterior

This little Italian number gets more polished and elegant because of a number of things—steel finish roll bar, A-pillar, side mirror caps, standard foglamps, chrome exhaust pipes, exclusive 17-inch wheels, red side sill stripe, and tricolor badge. The red side sill stripe is not something everyone can go gaga over but if it is offered in other colors, then that’s more options for owners.

2. Interior

The S-Design comes with a bit of more extra fun and sophistication in the cabin. The interior will remain familiar to those who previously owned a Fiat 124 Spider in the past, but there’s a slew of features that extra standard features that owners will get to enjoy. Among these are the leather-wrapped seats and steering wheel, automatic climate control, cruise control, and the Keyless Go system. There’s also an MP3 radio unit with USB port and four speakers. Safety features are also enhanced through the inclusion of four airbags.

3. Drivetrain

Everything remains standard under the hood. It will come equipped with the same turbocharged, 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine as the regular 124 Spider. The output remains at 140 horsepower and 240 Nm of torque. The engine is paired with either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission.

Top Picks From The 2018 Geneva Motor Show

The 2018 Geneva Motor Show is in full swing with heart-stopping decadence of vehicles and concepts and everything else in between. There’s truly nothing like it and when it comes to bucket list, the Geneva Motor Show is in every car lover’s list.

Here, we looked at the top three picks that were revealed just recently in the ongoing Geneva Auto Show other than the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door.

1. RUF SCR

If you love vintage cars, look no further than the RUF SCR. The $650,000 price tag may throw you off, but there is simply nothing like this. It looks like a classic Porsche 911, except that this one uses completely custom chassis that will reduce weight and improve handling conditions. All of this will help fuel the 4.0-liter water-cooled flat-six that is able to produce 510 horsepower.

2. Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo

Porsche plans to release the actual Mission E next year as competition in the EV industry heats up. Directly, the Mission E will compete with Tesla and will finally fulfill Porsche’s dream of an all-electric Mission E. The one previewed at the Geneva Motor Show is not the final design yet, but it is closer in design to the actual Mission E than the ones we saw in the past years. According to Porsche, the Mission E will be able to do 0-62mph in 3.5 seconds and 0-125mph in 12 seconds flat.

3. Bentley Bentayga Hybrid

The Bentley Bentayga Hybrid unveiled during the motor show will be the same one that will come rolling off the factories. This is the first hybrid car that Bentley ever created, making sure it’s as special as they come. It has a plug-in system and batteries to power its twin electric motors that are paired with 3.0-liter V6 turbo gasoline engine. As a result, it will only emit 75g/km of carbon dioxide, far less, of course, than the three Bentayga models. The twin electric motors can go up to 30 miles before the gasoline engine kicks in. The batteries, on the other hand, can be fully charged in just 2.5 hours at a high-output charging station.

4 Self-Driving Cars We Expect To See At The Geneva Auto Show

Whether they’re merely concepts for now or in planned production, the Geneva Auto Show will be home to some of the most fantastic innovations of modern time—self-driving cars.

Here is a list of the top 4 self-driving cars we are anticipating at the show:

1. Volkswagen I.D. Vizzion

The I.D. Vizzion is fourth on Volkswagen’s futuristic I.D lineup of concepts. The Vizzion is a long, low sedan with no steering wheel or pedals. Much like the other I.D. concepts—the Buzz bus, the Crozz crossover, and the original I.D.—the Vizzion will be quick and powerful. It will pack a 111kWh battery car that can go 413 miles on a single charge. It will have dual motors with an output of 302 horsepower and a top speed of 112mph.

2. Rinspeed Snap

The Snap is Rinspeed’s latest concept vehicle that first debuted at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show. As promised, the Snap is more than just a self-driving car, but it’s a “mobility ecosystem” that is pieced together. The Snap has a skateboard for the mechanicals and technology components and a pod where the riders sit. The idea is for the skateboard piece to be able to retire without necessarily diminishing the whole function of the vehicle. The pod will be able to survive even without the skateboard.

3. Renault Self-Driving Concept Car

Still unnamed at this point, the latest self-driving concept car from Renault was spotted being filmed in Barcelona ahead of its debut at the Geneva Auto Show. The pod-like vehicle is a testament to Renault’s “vision for shared urban mobility.” It is also designed for ride-hailing services like Uber.

4. Icona Nucleus

Italian design house Icona will attend the Geneva Auto Show for the first time with its self-driving car concept called the Nucleus. Icona calls it “the ultimate self-driving living room” because it focuses more on the cabin and how to make the interior functional.

5 Quick Facts About the Volkswagen Arteon

Another car that will be gracing the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March is the Volkswagen Arteon. More than a week before the big event, Volkswagen released the teaser images of the car through a sketch as well as closeup look at its front grille and taillights.

1. About the Car’s Name

The Volkswagen Arteon’s name is derived from the words “art” and “eon”. “Art” points out to the stylish lines and curves of the car. On the other hand, “eon” refers to its status as a premium model.

2. Arteon in the Volkswagen Hierarchy

According to a report, the Volkswagen Arteon is referred to by its maker as a fastback. The auto is the successor of the CC sedan and a notch above the Passat midsize sedan. The car is based on the Sport Coupe GTE Concept shown in the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.

3. Design of the Arteon

As seen in the spy photos, the Volkswagen Arteon sports a futuristic design. The headlamps appear to be integrated in both ends of the car’s radiator grille. VW claimed that the Arteon will possess their latest generation of driver assistance systems while the front and back lighting system come in LED.

Despite the compact styling of the fastback, VW said that the vehicle offers a spacious interior. That is thanks to the MQB platform of the auto, which was adapted from the Passat. Expect the same level of interior elements and tech from the Passat to be carried over to the Arteon too.

4. Engine

The US market-bound Arteon might be equipped with a 2.0-liter TSI engine with an output of more than 270 bhp. It should be noted though that the test mules of the car that we have seen so far in a series of spy shots were using a watered down version of the engine with 190 bhp. All that power is distributed via a 7-speed DSG dual clutch automatic gearbox.

5. Competition

The Arteon aims to rival the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe when it comes out of the market.

Check out the 4 key features of the car below according on a source:

The Aston Martin DB11 Q comes in Zaffre Blue. The paint job features an exclusive finish which gives an illusion that it changes its colors based on the lighting present in its environment. The wheel is also finished in blue to match the car’s body color. Then the front splitter, sills at the side, rear diffuser, bonnet lines, mirror caps, badges, and hubcaps are all made from carbon fiber materials.

2. Interior

The interior surfaces of the DB11 Q is covered in Obsidian Black semi-aniline leather. The same Zaffre Blue theme is used to give more details to the linings of the seats, side panels and to the stitching found in the car’s dashboard. Of course, there are a couple of “Q” badges inside to highlight the special identity of the auto.

3. Engine

The DB11 Q is powered by a 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 engine. The unit can produce up to 600 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. The numbers allow the auto to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds. Its top speed is electronically-limited at 200 mph.

4. Pricing

Aston Martin didn’t release specific information about the cost of the DB11 Q. That’s because the pricing of the car depends on the specifications set by the customer to it. But as a reference, the base model of the vehicle is around $211,995, so buyers should expect to pay more than that.
