Nissan showcases 2017 Qashqai Facelift at Geneva Motor Show

Since the Qashqai SUV was first released by Nissan in 2013, it has gone on to become the best-selling crossover in Europe. During the early part of this year, there were reports that the Japanese automaker may be releasing a revised version. That appears to be true as Nissan has officially unveiled the 2017 Nissan Qashqai Facelift during the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

Qashqai owners know that one of the benefits of this model is that it allows for a more confident drive. Even with the number of modifications, the new version is able to continue having that excellent outstanding performance. Because of the improvements done to the steering system, damping system, and the suspension system, the new Qashqai is able to offer a road experience that is more refined than usual.

With better utilization of absorption materials plus the glass in the rear being made thicker, it’s ensured that noise experienced in the cabin is lowered. The selection of the different-sized wheels help as well since they have all been optimized in terms of aerodynamics in order to maximize the efficiency.

2017 Infiniti Q50 gets refreshed style, new self-driving technologies

Infiniti has enhanced the Q50 premium sports saloon, which makes its global debut at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show. With refreshed styling and holistic performance technologies, Infiniti Q50 was designed to empower and support drivers on the road.

Taking a fairly conservative approach to a mid-cycle refresh, Infiniti revised Q50 supercar’s lower air intakes with new driving lamps and enhanced grille with deeper detailing to the mesh pattern. New LED headlights are incorporated for a better visibility while slimmer LED tail lamps derived from the Q60 are in effect out back.

To spice things up, new model grades offer Infiniti customers a choice of two exterior designs. According to Francois Bancon, Infiniti Vice President for Global Product Strategy, each model grades offer a distinctive look and character. In particular, Red Sport 400 lets drivers express themselves with a more assertive design conveying the car’s performance potential.

t seems as if something had flown out of the drawing board. Kind of. Before the Korean carmaker holds its official debut this year, sketches of the updated 2018 Hyundai Sonata have leaked on the Internet. Based on the reports, the teasers first came from Hyundai’s official Facebook page but a recent post from Hyundai-Blog also has the same drawings of the new sedan.

Although it wasn’t the first time that the upcoming model was spied online, the sketches prove to be more revealing as far as the design cues and how the finished product would turn out later on.

If anything, the new updates give the new Sonata a sportier look and it appears to have more of a European flair this time as compared to the current model. At least judging from the overall impression. Thanks to Schreyer’s signature nose grille, the most noticeable changes go to the front end which also includes new headlights and distinctive daytime running lights in LED. Besides these changes, the 2018 Hyundai Sonata is expected to come with redesigned cabin with new trims to match as well the latest information and entertainment system.

Affordable while being elegant at the same time, SKODA is implementing different innovations to the RAPID range to bring these features to new heights.

Slotted between the FABIA and that of the OCTAVIA, both the RAPID and the ŠKODA RAPID SPACEBACK belong to the compact car segment and have already managed to set new standards with regards to spaciousness. Indeed, while they have a compact appearance, the space made available inside is truly remarkable. Now ŠKODA will be optimizing all of these aspects.

For example while the legroom for both models is at 65 mm, the RAPID offers rear headroom of 972 mm whereas the RAPID SPACEBACK reveals headroom space of 980 mm. Boot capacity is 550 liters for the RAPID with the RAPID SPACEBACK displaying volume at 415 liters.

Soon, we will be able see VW Group's new frugal turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine underneath the hood of the 2017 Skoda Octavia facelift. This engine – the 1.5-liter TSI Evo powerplant --will be one of the five available engines for the 2017 Skoda Octavia Facelift.

When Skoda announced the face-lifted version of the Octavia in October 2016, it also disclosed that its power will be sourced from four available engines – two petrol and two diesel engines – in the United Kingdom. The petrol engines include a 1.0 TSI that delivers 115 PS and a 1.4 TSI that provides up to 150 PS. Meanwhile the diesel powerplants include a 1.6 TDI that generates 115 PS and a 2.0 TDI that develops max output of 150 PS. Available transmission systems include a manual gearbox and a DSG transmission with six or seven gears.

Now, the 1.5-liter TSI Evo petrol engine is not entirely a new powerplant. It is in fact, an evolution or an upgraded version of the 150-PS 1.4 TSI unit that is available as one of the cores for the 2017 Skoda Octavia. Featuring cylinder deactivation, this 1.5-liter TSI Evo engine is able to deliver 150 hp (110 kW) of max output and 250 Nm (184 lb.-ft.) of peak torque. This means that the petrol versions of the new 2017 Skoda Octavia facelift will be available with either a 1.0 TSI with 115 PS or a 1.5 TSI Evo with 150 PS. As for the 1.4 TSI petrol engine in the Skoda Octavia, it will be gradually replaced with the evolved unit starting the second half of the year.

Aiming to build hype for its 2018 Ford Mustang, the American automaker is showing the face-lifted sports coupe at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show. Just like other carmakers displaying their wares in Chicago, Ford is also showing potential customers what the new Ford Mustang could offer to them.

While it is the first time that Ford showed the 2018 iteration of the pony car, the Chicago Auto Show presents a good chance for those who are still aching to see the new Ford Mustang, which now features a redesigned front end and a restyled rear end.

On the outside, the new 2018 Ford Mustang is now provided with lower remodeled hood, which is around an inch (2.54 cm) lower than before. This bonnet and its matching vents – now repositioned -- give the 2018 Ford Mustang a more aggressive and more dynamic appearance on the road. Its upper and lower front grilles also received a bit of remodeling. Moreover, Ford gave the new Mustang a set of all-LED headlight lights with available fog lamps.

Toyota has recently updated the new Yaris for its European market. The facelifted Toyota hatchback will be introduced as a 2017-year model and is based on the brand’s existing 3rd generation Yaris. Among the new updates are the improved safety features, cooler exterior/interior design and dynamic performance enhancements with up to nine hundred pieces of brand new parts put altogether.

To move along with the transformation, Toyota has added a set of new grade specifications for the new Yaris models. The entry level gets the basic specs of the hatchback while the mid-level variant gets the 4.2-inch infotainment system among its standard features.

Other than the two basic model specifications, the Japanese automaker has also created a Mid+ variant for the younger generation. The Mid+ Toyota Yaris models will have a Bi-tone finish which is basically a choice between black and chrome trim finishes with matching interior trims, side sills and 15-inch alloy wheels.

The F80 generation of the BMW M3 will be getting its second Life Cycle Impulse (LCI) for the 2018 model year. To explain it further, Life Cycle Impulse (LCI) is BMW’s term for a mid-cycle refresh or simply a facelift. This means that we would be seeing the BMW M3 with some updates on its look when it is released for the 2018 model year.

It is fairly easy to tell which part of the 2018 BMW M3 has been updated. After all, it is the lone most obvious visual tweak implemented on the face-lifted 2018 BMW M3 LCI II. At a glance, the headlights of the 2018 BMW M3 seem familiar – this is because these lamp units are the ones found on the visually updated 2017 BMW M4 LCI. This means that the new BMW M3 now features newly designed adaptive full-LED headlights, which could cast their beam in the direction of the curve to ensure better visibility at night. The new headlight graphics and design makes use of extra LED bars that help highlight the connection between the BMW M3’s kidney grille and its light units. Apart from newly designed headlights, there are no other major visual tweaks implemented. Everything remains the same aside from the new headlights.

There are some visual tweaks implemented inside the 2018 BMW M3 LCI II. Now, the illuminated M3 logos on the seats of the driver and the front passenger now feature a fresher design. Just like on the exterior, other sections inside the cabin remain as they are. In addition, the 2018 BMW M3 LCI II won’t feature any performance updates. This means that BMW didn’t do anything for the engine and other complementary components.

Ford has just recently unveiled the 2018 Ford Mustang, and as it turned out, the carmaker gave its beloved pony car a facelift. There have been mixed reactions about the changes made to the 2018 Ford Mustang – some were pleased and others were not. But still, the new 2018 Ford Mustang is a magnificent muscled sports car with dazzling looks and mesmerizing performance.

At this junction, many are already expecting Ford to create a convertible version of the Mustang. It was only logical, since the Ford Mustang for the 2017 model year also featured a number of convertibles, including the Mustang V6 Convertible, Mustang EcoBoost Premium Convertible and the Mustang GT Premium Convertible. However, for the 2018 model year, Ford only unveiled images of the hardtop variants. It may take several more months before the Detroit carmaker finally reveals their open-top counterparts.

However, thanks to X-Tomi Design, an automotive visual artist from Hungary, we might be already looking at the convertible version of the 2018 Ford Mustang GT. X-Tomi Design is becoming notoriously known for rendering seemingly actual images of future or possible versions of any new vehicle offering. For its latest project, X-Tomi Design chose the 2018 Mustang GT as the base model and decided to render out a convertible variant.

Ford Mustang customers won’t be able to specify the V6 powerplant for the latest iteration of the carmaker’s pony car. This comes as the new 2018 Ford Mustang is saying goodbye to its 3.7-liter Ti-VCT V6 engine.

The V6 engine had been one of the available powerplants for the Mustang along with the 2.3-liter GTDI I-4 engine (Four Cylinder EcoBoost) and the 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8 engine. While it has more cylinders (six vs. four) and higher displacement (3.7 liters vs. 2.3 liters) than the four-cylinder EcoBoost, the larger naturally aspirated V6 simply loses in terms of power output and torque as well as fuel efficiency.

In the 2017 Ford Mustang, the V6 engine provides 300 hp of max output at 6,500 rpm and 280 lb.-ft. of peak torque available at 4,000 rpm. This engine boasts of EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of 18 mpg city, 27 mpg highway and 21 mpg combined both in manual and automatic transmissions. The smaller yet turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine offers better figures.

As expected, four years after the current generation of the BMW 4 Series was introduced in 2013 with the BMW 4 Series Coupe, the German premium carmaker is implementing a Life Cycle Impulse.

This is also known as a mid-cycle refresh. BMW gave the 3 Series an FCI in 2016, and this year it is the turn of the 4 Series.

What is good about this mid-cycle update is the fact that BMW is refreshing not only one model of the 4 Series, but all of them. BMW has revised the 4 Series Coupe, 4 Series Convertible, 4 Series Gran Coupe and the M4 for the 2017 model year.

Volkswagen continues to provide more details and images of its much-awaited Volkswagen Golf R all-wheel drive flagship. Overall, the 2017 VW Golf R Facelift looks more handsome and more aggressive than its predecessors with power that is a bit higher.

On the sides, the latest Golf R features new, double-five-spoke wheels. On the rear, the new 2017 VW Golf R features new taillights with a new LED pattern as well as larger lamps on its rear bumper.

Even before this teaser, there have been numerous spy photos featuring the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA. While not camouflaged, the spied 2018 Mercedes GLA has been covered with foils. This means we could only base our descriptions on the surfaces and lines of the spied compact SUV.

Basically, the spied Mercedes GLA only tells us about its overall dimensions and profile. As for the smaller details, there are very few revealed. Since the 2018 GLA is a mid-cycle update, we could expect Mercedes to implement a facelift on its compact premium SUV.
