Hyundai unveils new generation of Accent subcompact at 2017 Canadian Auto Show

Hyundai is introducing a new 2018 Accent that is not only wider and longer, but is now also sporting a new look that is more serious than the previous model. The South Korean carmaker unveiled the 2018 iteration of the Accent at the 2017 Canadian International Auto Show, hoping that this iteration of the subcompact car will further boost the popularity in the United States in Canada.

The most glaring changes in the new 2018 Hyundai Accent are very much seen on its exterior. While the carmaker only unveiled the sedan version 2018 Hyundai Accent, the smaller sibling of the Hyundai Elantra will be available in both sedan and hatchback body styles. In terms of overall looks, the 2018 Hyundai Accent looks like a smaller version of its larger brother, the Elantra. From the front end to the rear end, the 2018 Accent sports an appearance that would make onlookers mistake it for an Elantra, until they realize that it is smaller than its Hyundai family sibling.

With the 2018 Accent donning a new and more serious look, gone now is the seemingly happy and smiling face of this subcompact car. The redesign implemented revisions on the subcompact’s grille and headlights as well as its wraparound lights on the rear, giving the new 2018 Accent a more earnest look in line with Hyundai’s other recently redesigned models (like the new Elantra GT). Headlining the subcompact’s new look is Hyundai’s signature hexagonal cascading grille as flanked by wrap-around headlights and LED daytime running lights.

Cadillac reveals updates and changes for 2018 iteration of its CT6

Cadillac’s CT6 full-size prestige-luxury sedan is still somewhat new. It has been offered to the global auto market for two model years – 2016 and 2017. But for those who think that the first generation of the CT6 (short for Cadillac Touring 6) might be getting a little older, the US premium carmaker is readying a plethora of updates and upgrades for its range-topping sedan.

According to a recently published order guide, Cadillac is giving the CT6 sedan quite a number of tweaks and updates that should allow it to become more competitive while still attracting customers and delivering a better user experience.

For instance, Cadillac has deleted four exterior colors from the 2018 CT6 color palette -- Dark Emerald Metallic; Moonstone Metallic; Red Passion Tint coat; and Phantom Gray Metallic. While the premium carmaker deleted these four exterior colors, it also added three new tones as it hopes to refresh how the new 2016 looks like. These new exterior colors -- Red Horizon Tintcoat; Satin Steel Metallic; and Stone Gray Metallic – are available for a fee. When the 2018 Cadillac CT6 is availed on a Platinum grade, the Stone Gray Metallic exterior color could be specified for no additional charge.

A Quick Look: Mercedes-Benz E-Class (W213) vs. BMW 5-Series (G30)

In many industries, it is the rivalries that make things exciting. In basketball for example, there is the well-known rivalry between the Los Angeles Lakers against the Boston Celtics. For football, there is Barcelona versus Real Madrid. In the automotive industry, there is the infamous competition between Ferrari and Lamborghini. At present, there is a new rivalry in the making which is the 5-Series (G30) from BMW against the E-Class (W123) of Mercedes-Benz.

What makes the battle between this two exciting is that they both belong to the executive mid-size saloon class. For cars that cost less, what buyers consider are generally related to the value or the added features. Premium models however also take into consideration the design, prestige, and heritage. The choice is made more difficult as both brands have been implementing changes.

For those wanted comfort and be on the more conservative side, the choice was always Mercedes-Benz. BMW meanwhile was all about athletic looks and a thrilling drive. However recently, BMW has been playing it a bit safe with Mercedes becoming more daring. So how do they fare against each other?

BMW Abu Dhabi Motors starts selling 2017 BMW 540i (G30) Sport Line

Now on sale in several major markets around the world including Europe, the BMW 5 Series (G30) heralds the arrival of the new seventh generation and represents a whole new level of luxury and comfort. Of course, the BMW 5 Series is now beginning to arrive at key markets around the world, including the city of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.

In charge of sales and after-market of BMW vehicles in this city is BMW Abu Dhabi Motors, which is incidentally, the luxury carmaker’s largest dealership in the world. Just recently, BMW Abu Dhabi Motors has announced on its Facebook page the arrival of the new generation of the 5 Series into its showroom. To announce the arrival of the 5 Series into its fold, BMW Abu Dhabi Motors posted 27 images of the luxury sedan, which came in the guise of the BMW 540i Sport Line.

As we know, BMW will be offering the new 2017 BMW 5 Series in two Line packages at launch -- Luxury Line and Sport Line. The Luxury Line for the 5 Series further accentuates the luxurious and opulent nature of the vehicle chrome exterior accents. This Line also features specific wheels in 18-inch or 19-inch wheels, a Sensatec-covered instrument panel and interior leather with contrast stitching. On the other hand, Sport Line highlights the dynamic character of the 5 Series through a number of high-gloss black elements and 18-inch wheels. The door sills also feature an illuminated BMW Sport Line badge. Inside, the 5 Series Sport Line comes loaded with Sport seats with a cloth/leather combo, a specific interior trim and a BMW sports leather steering wheel.

General Motors is getting ready to unveil its new Buick Regal sedan at the Shanghai Auto Show 2017 in April. But before GM had the chance to do so, leaked images of the new sedan have surfaced.

Actually, we already have a good idea of how would the China-bound 2018 Buick Regal would look like as early as December 2016. At the time, General Motors introduced the Opel Insignia Grand Sport, which will have its official debut this March at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. This new large family car marks the second generation of the Insignia after nearly a decade. The Insignia Grand Sport features a new design made distinct by elegant lines as well as best-in-class aerodynamics. It is also underpinned by a new platform and loaded with new systems and technologies. Of course, it was openly known that the second-gen Insignia would be the basis for the new Holden Commodore and the new Buick Regal, and would be homologated for the requirements in the countries where they would be marketed. This means we could expect some differences in the exterior, interior and the mechanicals of these models.

As the leaked images reveal, it seems that the China-bound 2018 Buick Regal looks very similar to the Opel Insignia Grand Sport. The most glaring difference is found on the front end – the China-bound Buick Regal features the brand’s waterfall grille and the large winged Buick logo on the center. Of course, the badges are different on the 2018 Buick Regal.

In racing, driving a quicker and lighter car doesn’t always result in a win. However, such a car definitely has some advantages over other competitors. This could be the reason why the Electric GT Championship is changing the base car from the Tesla Model S P85+ to Tesla Model S P100.

When the Electric GT World Series was announced in March 2016, organizer Electric GT Holding Inc. also disclosed that it has chosen the Tesla Motors S P85+ as a base model for the 10 teams bound to enter the event in its 2017 inaugural season.

Agustin Paya, Technical Director for Electric GT Holdings, remarked back then that the Tesla model S was chosen because of its impressive circuit racing potential with its power, acceleration, weight distribution and low center of gravity as well as superb cornering speed. The race-bound Model S P85+ would race with the same powertrain, battery and programming as the one available for the market, although it has received modifications with regards to braking, aerodynamics, suspension and cooling, as well as steering and overall weight.

How much do you need to shell out to buy a new 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia? Well, it depends on the chosen variant and specs of the Alfa Romeo Giulia, although all versions of the premium mid-size sedan represent a fusion of Italian craftsmanship, performance and state-of-the-art technology.

The Italian carmaker is offering the Giulia sedan in three variants – base, Turismo Internazionale (TI) and the range-topping Quadrifoglio. The differences between these models are dictated by the specs, features and equipment found in each variant. To help interested customers in the United States better decide on how to specify their own Giulia, Alfa Romeo has launched an online configurator for the premium sedan. This online configurator also specifies how much each feature would cost the customer.

The base version of the Giulia has a starting price of $37,995, and when the destination charge of $995 is taken into account, the overall price is set at $38,990. What a customer gets is a rear-wheel drive Giulia sedan powered by a 2.0-liter inline-4 direct-injection engine -- paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission -- that delivers 280 hp of max output and 306 lb.-ft. of peak torque.

When Skoda unveiled the face-lifted 2017 Octavia RS in late 2016, the Czech carmaker got rid of all doubts whether it would create an RS version of the car. At the time, it touted the 2017 Octavia RS 230 as the most powerful Octavia of all time.

However, Skoda is now introducing a version of the 2017 Octavia RS that is even more powerful than a regular Octavia RS 230. With that fact, the carmaker is now touting the new Skoda Octavia RS as the most powerful Octavia in the company’s history. Definitely, the new Skoda Octavia RS 245 is now the quickest, most powerful Octavia in the carmaker’s lineup.

To determine the differences between the Octavia RS 230 and the Octavia RS 245, perhaps you would need a keener sense of sight. For instance, the Octavia RS 245 has more black accents on the exterior and more specific decorative trims in the cabin. Specifically, trim framing the radiator grille comes in gloss black. The same treatment is given to the exterior mirror housings and the trapezoid tailpipes.

Something is brewing in the Middle East. BMW Abu Dhabi welcomes the brand new year with a bang by flaunting its own version of BMW M3. Known for its brightly colored BMW i8 models, BMW Abu Dhabi stays ahead of the game for giving its customers what they want. Just a few months ago, they created the most interesting plug-in hybrid sports cars decked in Lava Yellow, Lava Orange, Twilight Purple, Lava Green, Austin Yellow and Lava Red paint colors.

Though pricing details are still unknown, we bet the new M3 would also cost a fortune. Dressed in Ferrari Red and Competition Package, we can’t deny that it looks hot for the season ---- and it’s probably the priciest and fully loaded M3 performance sedan you could find right at this very minute.

What the dealer from the UAE had on its showroom is definitely a far cry from the M3s we’ve seen last year. Other than the red body paint, the most notable of all the upgrades is the 450hp, 3.0 litre twin turbo engine under the hood. Sure, it didn’t come all the way from Maranello Italy, but it has Ferrari’s spirit of performance at the very least. Paired with 7-speed dual clutch transmission, it can run from 0-62mph in about 4 seconds with a top speed of 163mph.

Motorists wanting to have the 2017 Citroen C-Elysee in their respective garages may now be able to place an order for the compact sedan in France. This face-lifted iteration of the Citroen C-Elysee could be availed at a starting price of €13,750 ($14,459).

According to the French carmaker, interested customers could only avail of one trim level for the 2017 Citroen C-Elysee, dubbed as Live. The base version of the 2017 Citroen C-Elysee is laden with an array of standard equipment that includes the Citroen Connect Radio system. This feature comes with a new touchscreen (measuring seven inches), which has an interface that paves the way for a more responsive in-vehicle experience. Allowing users to connect their smartphones to the vehicle through Bluetooth, this seven-inch touchscreen serves as a hub from where users could control the multimedia and telephone functions through smartphone connectivity (Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink).

Designed to appeal to markets around the world, the new Citroen C-Elysee is underpinned by the same components that underpin the Peugeot 301. As many have guessed, the 2017 Citroen C-Elysee sports a revised look – although overall, its appearance has not changed that much. Cosmetics tweaks implemented on the new 2017 Citroen C-Elysee include a revised radiator grille as flanked by redesigned headlights, LED daytime running lights and fog lights as well as taillights with three-dimensional effect lights. Cosmetic tweaks for the 2017 iteration of the Citroen C-Elysee also included the addition of Lazuli Blue and Aluminum Grey colors, replacing the Teles Blue and Steel Grey hues, respectively. New 16-inch wheels could also be availed for the 2017 C-Elysee.

Some car enthusiasts may simply opt for BMW’s standard list of rim options while others go for something bolder. By bolder, we mean those rims that you’d typically find on big SUVs and low-slung sports coupes. As an example, consider this BMW 7-Series (G11) fitted with an over-the-top Quattresimo set of wheels.

As you can see on this black BMW, it has Forgiato’s 22-inch forged aluminum rims in gold finish. This particular design is from the Quattresimo collection, which is made of aircraft grade materials and can be availed in various forging options such as the convex, step lip or concave among many others.

In case you’re wondering, Forgiato’s team hails from Los Angeles California. It is also where they continue to produce and manufacture their excellent products. Still, the Italian sounding name is just as tasty as their wide array of colours and designs.

Regardless of how much we want it, Italian company Pagani Automibili is highly unlikely to develop and offer a four-door sedan. And there is a reason for that – Pagani is an auto company that specializes in creating and building carbon fiber-laden supercars. There is a significant gap in dynamics – as well as price -- between a supercar and a sedan, and we can’t expect Pagani to shift focus anytime soon.

Interestingly, a visual artist known as Peisert Design has taken into his own hands the liberty of rendering a four-door sedan for Pagani. Peisert Design has already impressed us with splendid renderings of several upcoming and even non-existent models. For instance, Peisert Design rendered the new Acura NSX -- closer to the image of the first-gen sports car.

Peisert Design also rendered complete images of the new Mercedes-AMG Project One using just the leaked graphics from the performance division of Mercedes-Benz – tough work considering that the official teaser images of the new hypercar were nothing more than a silhouette.

Meet the fastest-accelerating four-door production car in the planet. No, it is not a Lamborghini, a Ferrari or a Porsche. It is an updated Tesla Model S. This was proven during a recent drag race against a Cadillac CTS-V.

Actually, the Model S is already certified as the quickest four-door production car when it managed to complete the quarter-mile run in just 10.76 seconds in September 2016. This particular Model S is the top-of-the-range P100D version that employs a 100-kWh battery pack and the game-changing Ludicrous mode. In theory, the Model S P100D with Ludicrous could go as quickly as 2.5 seconds in the zero to 60 mph sprint. In the September quarter-mile run, an industrial generator was used by a team of Tesla enthusiasts in order to achieve the absolute best time possible -- by doing drag runs at 100-percent state of charge.

But recently, Tesla Motors launched a software update for the P100D version – the Ludicrous Plus. This update furthers unlocks the capabilities of the Tesla Model S P100D. When the Ludicrous Plus mode is activated – done by pressing the “Ludicrous” button on the settings screen for five seconds – the temperature of the 100-kWh battery pack is raised to 122 degrees Fahrenheit. At this temperature, the max power output from the electric motors of the Tesla Model is further increased by an estimated 30 hp.

Just days before BMW commences sales of the next generation of the BMW 5 Series (G30 generation), the German premium carmaker is putting more efforts to market its latest offering. In particular, BMW uploaded a short video clip in social media Web site YouTube detailing some of the differences between the new seventh generation of the BMW 5 Series and the current sixth generation (F10).

The clip – lasting around three minutes – gives us in--depth details of how the seventh-generation BMW isn’t just a face-lifted version of the sixth generation. After all, the most desirable changes are on the core of the new 5 Series. However, BMW is good enough to point out the distinction between the two generations of the 5 Series.

BMW started on discussing the exterior changes on the front. The carmaker is quick to point out that the new 5 Series still features BMW’s signature kidney grille, which is now wider and is visually linked to the housings of the twin circular headlights. These lamp units come in LED Adaptive units as standard, although optional Adaptive Full LED Headlights with light graphic altering capability are also available. When this option is specified, the LED tubes of the daytime running lights become hexagonal in form. The grille could now be opened or closed for better aerodynamics. Absent is the V-shaped crease on the bonnet.

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.

The previous year has introduced a lot of new overhauls in the compact car segment not just for Mercedes but also for other major players in the car industry. In addition to the new overhauls, Mercedes-Benz’s “Aesthetics A” unveiled its new design sculpture for the upcoming A-Class sedan models. The teasers show how the new design philosophy incorporates fewer lines and creases as if everything else have gone back to the basic element of style.

Judging from the side profile, the concept saloon has a smoother and more distinct singular shape unlike anything we’ve seen before. Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer for Mercedes Benz, says that with its sensual surface design, the upcoming generation of the compact class has the potential to herald a “new design era.” This is probably what he meant with the new “Sensual Purity” design language that has almost completely gotten rid of the “sharp creases” and instead replaced it with more “sensual lines” for a flawless finish. We’ve also noticed it to be taking some of the newly updated AMG GT design cues particularly on the vertical slats along the front grille.

Rumors imply that there will also be an all-new four door model in the lineup destined for its North American consumers. In relation to this, the company is also considering a long wheelbase, 7-seater crossover bound for its Chinese market--- but maybe we’ll find out for sure about that at the 2017 Auto Shanghai this coming April.

Needless to say, the new BMW 1-Series Sedan is part of the premium carmaker’s offering. However, it should be noted that the so-called baby Bimmer is not being offered in Europe as it is an exclusive product targeting affluent customers in China.

Just recently, a new BMW 1-Series Sedan was seen being driven on roads in Europe. In particular, a reader of BimmerToday was able to take a good glimpse at a BMW 1 Series 120i sedan – in a prototype version without any disguise – in Munich, Germany.

BMW officially launched the BMW 1 Series Sedan at the Guangzhou Auto Show in China, hoping to take advantage of the propensity of more people in the event who may want to buy any of the premium compact cars. While the demand in China is still mainly for larger premium vehicles, especially those with spacious interiors, a new generation of car buyers is on the rise.

Apparently, Tesla’s keyless app is useless as soon as the driver goes into place where there is no cellular service or signal. This is based from the experience of an owner of a Tesla Model S electric sports car – a true story from Ryan Negri of Las Vegas, Nevada.

Tesla launched its keyless app to allow owners to lock, unlock or power up their Tesla Model S even when they don’t use the factory key fob, which of course is still a vital part of driving. As long as a user has a smartphone – powered by Android (Google) or iOS (Apple) – with installed apps from Tesla as well as a cellular signal (for Internet connectivity), he or she could control and monitor his or her Tesla Model S from a far. The keyless app works by having the smartphone app send a request to Tesla’s servers, which in turn process it and transmit a command to the Model S.

Tesla’s keyless app has advantages and disadvantages over a typical key fob. In terms of range, Tesla’s keyless app could reach the electric car as long as there in cellular signal or Internet connection. This means that even if a user is a hundred meters away, he or she could use the keyless app to unlock the Model S. Meanwhile, a key fob employs short-range radio signals, which are good for around 20 meters. These signals are sent directly from the key fob to a receiver unit in the car. But Tesla’s keyless app doesn’t. The request from the app is first sent to Tesla’s servers before it is transmitted to the car. When the connections to the servers are gone, so is the owner’s access to the car.

2017 is undeniably a very busy year for BMW. After introducing the new 4-Series, the German automaker has just released several new updates. In relation to this, BMW is also introducing the new 520d (G30) EfficientDynamics Edition, the company’s most eco-friendly 2.0 litre diesel engine.

BMW’s new 520d Efficient Dynamics has a combined fuel consumption of 73.4 miles per gallon and as low as 102 g/km C02 emissions. The engine consists of a turbocharger placed on antifriction bearings along with the new improved common rail injection, map controller oil pump and high pressure gas recirculation system. Mated to a standard 8-speed automatic transmission, the 520d EfficientDynamics can go from 0 to 62 miles per hour in only 7.5 seconds.

BMW’s new engine technology is also more aerodynamic efficient than any other engines. The 520d Efficient Dynamics delivers bigger fuel savings while using BMW’s BluePerformance technology all at the same time. Aside from the new filter, the Blue Performance system comes with a NOX storage catalyst, oxidation catalyst and AdBlue injection to help the engine emit less nitrogen oxide.

The W213 line is now available with wide choices of after-sales treatment particularly for customers who want more out of the standard Mercedes-Benz E-class sedan.
