“The Huracan continues to lead the rest in terms of technology, vision, and tradition. The lineup represents Lamborghini’s class-leading technological refinements and top-notch performance that has been achieved without scarifying any facet of its establishment.”

Every design of the Huracan LP580-2 celebrates an aesthetic function thanks to the aerodynamic experts and Centro Stile designers’ collaboration.

LP610-4 Spyder

The Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 Spyder, on the other hand, is an open top version of the Huracan LP610-4 model that was presented during the 2015 Frankfurt International Motor Show. It perfectly combines the open-air driving emotion with the power and performance of a coupe. Beneath its hood is a 610-horsepower – generating 5.2L V10 engine that enables the model zoom from 0-62 mph in just 3.4 seconds and achieve a top speed of 201 mph.

According to recent news reports, the new Huracan Superleggera will shed around 200 pounds of weight over the existing model, courtesy of the extensive use of carbon fiber during the construction of its body panels. For better downforce, the new model comes with special aero work. Spy photos also reveal that the new model will also come with a new rear spoiler, and a slightly revised rear diffuser and splitter.

Indeed, the new model comes equipped with some of the industry’s best safety technologies. The nitty-gritty details are still under wraps, but a perfect NHTSA score of five out of five stars for overall crash impact safety protection should be expected.

Only Similar To The Concept? 2017 Subaru Impreza News And Rumors

We got the first glimpse of how the new 2017 Subaru Impreza looks like during the 2016 New York International Auto Show, and judging by the its redesigns, we think it’d be judicious to say that there’s a lot to be interested in. for 2017, the Impreza gains all sorts of new available safety features, a standard all-wheel drive system, a fuel-efficient and powerful engine, and a roomier interior.

By the time you’re finished reading this review, we vouch you’d definitely find the Subaru Impreza a great choice for a small sedan or hatchback. Its release date has been set for the early 2017, according to credible sources.

2017 Subaru Impreza exterior, side view, alloy wheels

Short Summary

Well, in addition to the above features, the Subaru Impreza 5-door also gains more power, a standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, and a spacious interior. For starters, the Subaru Impreza primary appeal has always been its all-time AWD system, and its spacious interior that provides ample leg- and headroom for its front and rear-seat passengers. Things have even gotten better with the new model thanks to an addition 1-inch wheelbase increment that means an even more spacious cabin.

It’s Slowly Growing

The exterior hasn’t been left out in the new equation, too. The width and length grow by 1.5-inches and 1.6 inches respectively. Although Subaru is yet to make the curb weight information known, rumors have it that it hasn’t changed over the model it replaces. What we do know however, is that the body structure is now stiffer than before for purposes of improving occupant protection and handling.

2017 Subaru Impreza Sport trim aficionados will also find the Active Torque Vectoring feature an added boost to its lively performance. Even with such an immense all-rounded growth in multiple facets, the Subaru Impreza still faces a lot of serious competition. The rivals include the Mazda 3, and the Honda Civic.

2017 Subaru Impreza Release Date & Price

The entire pricing structure hasn’t been released by Subaru, with only the base price expected to start from an MSRP of $20,000. If so, then that will be an increment of around $1,705 over the existing model that goes for sale for $18,295. As regards the release date, the new model is expected to head to dealerships for sale sometime in early 2017.

Some Of The 2017 Subaru Impreza Exterior Details

Some of the standard accessories and features available for the Impreza hatchback include a gloss black trim on the rear gate, turn-signal mirrors, a black-finish front grille, body-colored side skirts, and LED daytime running lights. 15- and 16-inch wheels are available depending on the trim configuration desired. In addition to flossing 16-inch wheels, the Impreza Premium Hatchback also comes with automatic headlights, heated exterior mirrors, and heated windshield. Roof racks are also standard for the Impreza Premium model, as can be seen on the images.

The Impreza Limited takes things a notch higher with items such as seventeen-inch machine-finished alloy wheels, “Konoji” LED running lights, and LED headlights. Opting for the Impreza Sport model gets you even larger eighteen-inch machine-finish alloy wheels.

Faithful To The Concept?

As it is apparent on the photos, the new model’s overall design looks similar to that of the concept albeit toned down significantly. Around back, a dominating overhang is the most notable add-on. While most of the body work seems identical to that of the Impreza sedan, a distinct-looking body line beneath the taillights makes it different from the hatchback.

Search For An Affordable New Crossover – 2017 Audi Q3 Review

The new 2017 Audi Q3 is arguably the most affordable crossover in Audi’s lineup. And although it has only been available to Audi’s North American lineup, the Q3 has been on sale in Europe for five years now. Several changes are in store for shoppers, with the most notable one being the introduction of a new entry-level trim level referred to as Premium. Its release date has been set for the spring of 2017.

2017 Audi Q3 side view, silver color, alloy wheels

Short Review

For starters, the Audi Q3 is roughly the same size as the BMW X1, with dimensions that stretch 175 inches long and 62.6 inches wide. The exterior and interior facets are instantly recognizable as those of Audi. Up front, the hexagonal radiator grille, and angular xenon headlights are traditional Audi elements. The interior boasts a driver-centered center stack, and a clean and simple dashboard.

Best Fuel Economy In Its Class

Motivation comes from a 200 horsepower, 2.0L TFSI four-cylinder engine. The mill comes paired to a six-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission system that sends the power generated to either the FWD or the all-wheel drive system. With the famed Quattro, expect the crossover to do 0-60 mph run in just 8.2 seconds, and 7.8 seconds with the FWD. fuel economy ratings are among the best in its class, with the FWD versions checking in at 23 mpg combined, and 28 mpg with the all-wheel drive models.

Nice Equipment But Outdated?

Some of the standard features available for the 2017 Audi Q3 include a panoramic sunroof, daytime running lights, LED taillights, automatic headlights and wipers, keyless ignition and entry, leather upholstery, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a 10-speaker sound system, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, and front and rear parking sensors.

But even with added features and technologies, the 2017 Q3 is hardly the freshest face in this segment. Most of the technologies we actually see are outdated in conventional terms. Buyers looking for something contemporary and fresh in the segment should properly check out the 2017 BMW X1. It has a superior performance, cutting-edge technology, better fuel economy, and a larger cabin. The 2016 Lexus NX 200t pulls ahead of the Q3 in terms of quicker acceleration, and premium technologies but is neck-and-neck in terms of fuel-efficiency and space. Last, but certainly not the least is the 2016 Mini Countryman. The Countryman is engaging to drive, highly customizable, and pleasantly frugal.

Other competitors include Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, and Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class.

What Are The Release Date And Price For The New 2017 Audi Q3?

While pricing estimates have already been announced by Audi, release date details are still engulfed by speculation. Sources in the know however say the new Q3 should be expected sometime in the spring of 2017. The Q3 Premium goes for sale for an MSRP starting from $31,800, Q3 Prestige Quattro – $41,300, Q3 Premium Plus Quattro – $36, 600, Q3 Prestige – $39,200 and Premium Quattro – $33,900. Leasing is an option as well.

Strong And Confident Exterior of The New Audi Q3

As seen from the images, the new Q3 has a strong and confident road stance. It gains a sporty and expressive look thanks to the sharply sloped D-pillars and coupe-like roofline. The body surfaces are aerodynamically contoured and feature the latest Audi design language.

Some of the exterior features to expect include 18-inch wheels, LED running lights and taillights, a panoramic sunroof, xenon headlights, roof rails, LED headlights, 19-inch wheels (Q3 Prestige), tailgate sill plates, and “S Line” styling cues.

Quality is one thing that the Q3’s cabin doesn’t skimp on. As any other modern Audi, the new model employs premium design principles and materials. The result is a sophisticated, stylish and modern interior hardly matched by any other vehicle in its class. Climate controls are fairly straightforward and driver-centric.

Some of the standard accessories available include a rearview camera, Bluetooth phone and audio controls, satellite radio, a seven-inch display, Audi’s MMI control system, a 60/40-split-folding rear seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless entry and ignition, and a leather upholstery.

2017 Nissan GT-R Info and Rumors

Touted “a wolf in wolf’s clothing,” the new 2017 Nissan GT-R promises a greater performance, new looks, and better driving dynamics. According to Nissan, the new model offers increased horsepower, enhanced aerodynamics, enhanced high-speed handling, and an available titanium exhaust system. The GTR release date should be expected sometime before this fall, or early into 2017.

What else can you expect?

For 2017, some of the changes to expect, in addition to the above, include a relocated and redesigned paddle shifters, a simplified cockpit fitted with a next-generation multi-function display and fewer controls, display commander for entertainment, communication, and audio controls.

Rumor from Nissan says…

Sources at Nissan say every inch of the vehicle has been refined, tested, and examined, therefore allowing for improved aerodynamic drag, confidence in driving and grip. These features together with others help the new model to achieve a supercar performance unparalleled to none other. It is simply a blend of magic and clever engineering.

Exterior Design and Changes

Exterior wise, the new GTR’s aerodynamic cues have been sculpted to ensure drag is minimized as much as possible. There are also reshaped sills, underneath it, that also aid in reducing drag. The stylish design is also impressive, but you’ll have to look long and hard in order to notice any change more relevant to the previous model. The exterior visibility has also been improved. Engineers were devoted to every detail, and the accommodation offered is simply out-of-this-world (so to speak). Nissan says, thousands of hours spent in development, yielded a premium and flawless accommodation.

2017 Nissan GTR Interior Design

The interior is perhaps one the most improved areas. It comes fitted with hand-selected, hand-crafted, and rich materials, which seamlessly provide a comfortable and premium interior ambiance.

2017 Nissan GT-R front view, silver color, headlights and grille

What Are The Cons?

What doesn’t change, however, is the fact that the 2017 Nissan GT-R age is starting to show despite Nissan aggressiveness in trying to rejuvenate it. The con list includes intrusive road noise and lack of advanced technologies. As such you’d probably want to check out what the competition offers before deciding. Rivals include the Subaru BRZ, Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro, and the Scion FR-S.

Before You Buy It – The New 2017 Fiat 500X Review

If interested in a pint-size SUV, the new 2017 Fiat 500X may probably be what you’re after thanks to its nimble driving manners, thrifty fuel economy, decent interior accommodations, reasonable pricing, easy-to-use tech controls, and lots of safety features. The Fiat 500X release date should be expected sometime in the second half of 2017.

500L Bad – 500x Good?

Although the 500X has always been wanted in terms of utility, it compensates that with its appealing character and has done so ever since it debuted in the United States back in 2012. The company still offers the 500L, which offers impressive interior accommodations but falls short in just about every other quantifiable area.

Short Summary

The 500X is balanced in almost every aspect relative to the 500L, it offers more interior room, the available all-wheel drive provides added traction, and the elevated driving position enables the driver to have better exterior view. For the most part, there’s no denying the fact that it’s a successful formula.

2017 Fiat 500X front view, headlights, grille, alloy wheels

Room For 5 But No Cargo

The exterior also gets a toughness update and looks pretty much like a raised version of the 500 model. However, the dimensions are rather meager when compared to the Volkswagen Golf. On the upside, though, it still manages to offer a seating capacity for five people but the cargo capacity is almost non-existent.

2017 Fiat 500X side angle, red color, alloy wheels

Nice Looking Interior And Affordable

While its interior may not be refined as other vehicles, the price point of this Italian brand makes it a compelling choice nevertheless. The materials used on its interior are however upscale and comes equipped with latest technologies, for example, Chrysler’s Uconnect touchscreen interface. Surprisingly, other features available on the 500X include forward collision warning and mitigation, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitor with rear cross traffic alert, and a heated steering wheel.

Tough Competition

Its road manners whilst on the road are quite appealing, as is the power generated under the hood. But even with such an alluring review above, the new 2017 Fiat 500X isn’t the only vehicle that id offered in the entire subcompact SUV segment. Other alternatives include Honda HR-V, the Mazda CX-3, Nissan Juke, and the Jeep Renegade.

2017 Fiat 500X Review of Trims

Five trims are offered for the 2017 Fiat 500X: Trekking Plus, Easy, Pop, Lounge, and Trekking.

New Fiat 500X Interior And The Exterior Changes In Detail

2017 Fiat 500X Specs of Engine & Fuel Economy

2017 Fiat 500X 0-60 mph requires a time of 9.0 seconds with the front-wheel drive 2017 Fiat 500X Abarth.

More oomph can be had with the 2017 Fiat 500X Pop model which makes 160 horsepower and 184 pounds-ft. of torque thanks to its turbocharged 1.4L four-cylinder engine beneath its engine. Its fuel economy according to EPA stands at 25/34/28 mpg in the city/highway/combined.

Should I Buy The 2017 Toyota Yaris?

Although the subcompact segment is awash with newer and fresher models, the new 2017 Toyota Yaris is an impressive option not only because it’s well-built and economical, but also because it boasts of features such as a user-friendly interface, a long list of standard equipment, and a generous rear legroom. The Toyota Yaris USA release date should be expected to debut sometime in April next year.

Mini Review

For starters, the new Toyota Yaris 2017 was built and meant to offer better mobility in compact spaces especially in crowded spaces and tight streets of Germany and France. One notable fundamental DNA aspect is its ability to offer exceptional efficiency and maneuverability above anything else on the market. Although the latter statement can be challenged, there’s no doubt the Yaris is committed to doing what it claims to do.

It Spends…

In fact, EPA puts its fuel economy ratings at around 30/37/33 mpg in the city/highway/combined with the five-speed manual transmission system and 30/36/32 mpg with the four-speed automatic. Well, if you’re not completely sold out on prudence, at least you’re now in a position to give the newest Yaris the benefit of doubt.

Great Interior

For 2017, the Toyota Yaris interior is something to write home about. Modern and upgraded features abound over the previous model.

Continuation Of A Beastly Legend – 2017 Lamborghini Aventador Review

The new 2017 Lamborghini Aventador now comes with more sophisticated technologies, improved aerodynamics, lower weight, and more power than before. Although the changes it comes with are in no way subtle, it still manages to stay true to Lamborghini’s DNA of dynamic superiority, super sports car DNA, and exceptional driving precision. When all of these features are put together, the result is a faster, more emotional, and sport’s oriented production model ever created. In among the host of features and specs covered here in this updated review, its pricing and release date info are also covered.

The Heart Of It Is…

Under the hood is a naturally-aspirated V12 engine rated at 720 horsepower resulting in a 0-60 mph acceleration in just 2.8 seconds. Top speed stands at 217 mph. according to Stephen Winkelmann, “The new 2017 Lamborghini Aventador continues to push the boundaries in terms of pure driving emotion, and performance. The Superveloce model represents the most exclusive, emotional, and pure production model in the history of Lamborghini’s brand.”

Even Lighter?

Reduction of weight, new technologies, and enhancements of driving dynamics seem to form the focal point of what constituted the Lamborghini Aventador changes for 2017. There was extensive use of carbon fiber and aluminum materials during its construction. The fenders, rocker panels, and door panels were perhaps the areas where more lightweight materials were used. Also in carbon fiber are the fixed air intakes, and the rear wing.

Interior Has Been Completely Changed?

The interior too was completely redesigned, with weight reduction being the focus. The door panels and the sports bucket seats are also made of carbon. Combine the lightweight savings, to the increased power, and enhanced braking and lateral dynamics and you’ve got yourself a phenomenal acceleration. To sum it up, the 2017 Lamborghini Aventador is amazingly powerful. But equally precise and light-footed.

Are There Any Possible Alternatives?

In terms of rivalry, the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is the only one that seems to dare nip the Aventador’s heels. Motivation for the two-door coupe comes from a massive 6.3L V12 engine rated at 730 horsepower and 509 lbs. ft. of torque. This power enables it achieve 0-60 mph in just 3.0 seconds. Its top speed stands at 211 mph.

2017 Lamborghini Aventador USA Release Date & Price

When it comes to pricing, expect the new model to return with an asking price that starts from an MSRP of about $530,075. Just 500 examples of these will be built. As for the release date, expect the new model to go for sale sometime in the first half of 2017.

2017 Lamborghini Aventador Exterior Redesigns

The design embodies technical superiority alongside aggressive power. Ensuring aerodynamic balance was the main objective aerodynamic engineers set out to achieve from the beginning. As is now evident, both aerodynamic efficiency, and vertical downforce have been achieved. Downforce has improved by over 170% while aerodynamic efficiency has gone up one and a half times over the existing standard model.

Less Noticeable Frontal Intakes

Up front, the big air intakes make way for two additional V-Shaped vents and are shorter than before. They look less dramatic than before giving the Aventador a motor-inspired look. The side profile also gains a bit of changes. Extra air intakes have now been added. Around back, the intakes at the sides are a tad bit smaller while the taillights are thinner than before.

Subtle Redesign Of The 2017 Lamborghini Aventador Interior

As can be seen from the spy pictures, the interior changes are almost impossible to notice. We don’t think Lamborghini will offer any substantial changes on the inside. If anything, a couple of new upholstery colors could be added. The infotainment and instrument cluster screens could however be updated. Those seeking more features could get them via the customization package that will be available.

Nevertheless, we expect the interior to be authentic and purist. More details will be uncovered as its release date nears.

What Are The Available Trims?

Given the enhancements the new model is set to come with, it is only natural that it also comes with top safety features. Crash impact assessment results will be updated here on its release date.
