2011 The Jaguar XF Black Pack Luxury Sedan

There are different engine choices available, all with varying degrees of power. The XF Premium trim comes equipped with a 8 cylinder 5.0 Ltr with 385 horsepower. The XF Supercharged engine has the same specs but puts out 470 horsepower. The ultimate Supercharged XFR puts out a total of 510 horsepower and 461 lb feet of torque. This car handles extremely well on the open road and is quite agile, while acceleration is immensely powerful due to the substantial amount of power. The base model receives approximately 16 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the freeway.

Speaking of room, the Jaguar XF has just enough of it. In fact, a six-foot person sitting in the back will actually have a lot of head room left between his or head and the ceiling. Foot room is quite spacious but the 500-liter trunk space is a lot more generous and the back seats also fold for additional space.

2011 The Jaguar XF Car Lease Specials

The British brand Jaguar is synonymous with luxury and refined style but it has been primarily been popular with more established and older consumers due to its classic and subdued styling. Jaguar boldly moves into the next millennium with a contemporary and ultra modern vehicle; the sporty 2010 Jaguar XF. This auto first burst into the automotive scene in 2010 so it's definitely a newcomer to the luxury market. Its appearance is daring, modern and entirely different from any Jaguar produced in the past. This car has a sporty bold look; it's aggressive and modern looking with lines that are usually found on a sports coupe. The vehicle's stunning body is perfectly accentuated by beautiful eighteen inch wheels and an automatic sunroof allowing you to enjoy the warm breeze as you cruise down the street in glamorous style.

Expect the Jaguar XF to "hit the shelves" on March 1 2008. It will come in two whopping 4.2 liter V8 models, one with a supercharger and one without. There will also be a 3.0 liter V6 for the slightly less adventurous and a 2.7 liter V6 turbo diesel for the gas-consumption conscious. This is the definitely the cat to beat as soon as it hits the market and at over $60,000, this price range is only rivaled by Germany's BMW 550i M Sport. It all depends in what class you choose to belong to when it comes to shopping for the top car leasing specials.

2011 The New Toyota Corolla

The Toyota Corolla is a terrific vehicle, but like any automobile, it can run into serious problems. Just one major problem with your Corolla may cost you thousands of dollars to repair if Toyota's manufacturer's warranty is not there to protect you. If you drive a Toyota Corolla, you should seriously consider getting a Toyota Extended Warranty to cover your vehicle.

2011 Toyota Corolla Front View2011 Toyota Corolla Front View
What stands out foremost about the Corolla is its price, which is accessible to most individuals plus the solid dependability factor. Buying a vehicle that needs to be repaired frequently isn't acceptable to most consumers and buyers want to get the most value out of their hard earned dollar. If you want a practical vehicle that you can depend on then the Corolla would be perfect. Priced at around fifteen thousand dollars for the base model, the 2010 Corolla is a car that offers a lot at a low price.

2012 Saab 9-4X Sporty CarsSaab is on the eve of getting several new vehicles including the 2012 Saab 9-4X

Saab's fortunes began to decline when GM began to pour more money into Hummer and several overseas operations while neglecting the Saab product line. Adding insult to injury, GM developed an SUV model for Saab, the 9-7X, a vehicle based on the unpopular platform of GM's mid-range SUVs. That move further sullied Saab's image, resulting in sales declining sharply and damaging the brand.

Today, Saab is on the eve of getting several new vehicles including the 9-4X crossover to replace the forgettable 9-7X and will soon see its flagship 9-5 line overhauled. The 9-4X will be built by GM who will continue to supply parts, engines and transmissions for the foreseeable future as many Saab models share components with other GM vehicles. Indeed, the Saab 9-4X is based on the same platform powering the all new 2010 Cadillac SRX.

Suzuki-Solio Launches New 2011
From this Sunday, I am starting a series of weekly specials. These will be insider news about future company model programs, happenings, stuff that you will not have read in any of the enthusiast magazines and stuff that when they publish is accompanied by 'SCOOP' in caps and bold. As none of the media outlets have any use for my rantings, as accurate as they may be, I will use my blog as an outlet.

Suzuki-Solio Launches New 2011

Interior and Exterior: 2011 Mini Cooper Clubman is armored

The main difference between the 2010 and 2009 Clubman is how the engine gets oxygen. The 2009 model has variable valve timing, or VVT engine and not turbocharged. The engine is still an I4 with 1.6 liters and a fully electric throttle. The VVT engine, however means that the oxygen is less compressed before it reaches the combustion chamber. This cuts down on this small car's "vroom" factor and lowers the reported gas mileage for city driving. The 2009 is rated to get 25 miles per gallon in the city.
Interior and Exterior:

One of the main advantages of Cooper Clubman over regular Mini is its rear seat legroom. Cooper Clubman's rear seat access doors are much easier to reach due to its position. Interior of this sedan is particularly larger for average adults. Luggage compartment of this car is quiet good and 50 percent larger than regular Mini car. However luggage space can be increased by folding rear seat. Like regular Mini car even Cooper Clubman is offered with retro inspired controls and oddly placed stereo control knobs have been rectified which presents attractive looks and easier operation. Some of the convenience features offered with this model are front console with storage compartment, rear and front cup holders. Manual rear seat easy entry, front seat back storage, electric speed proportion power steering and remote trunk release. Interior options available with 2011 Mini Cooper Clubman are cargo net, MINI connected navigation system, color rooster red interior trim, carbon black interior shade, Gravity leather, Punch leather, Lounge Leather and central arm rest.

Sneak Peek: 2012 Hyundai Veloster

Hyundai is excited — and Honda might be scared — about the Veloster’s Detroit Auto Show reveal. There’s a countdown timer on Hyundai’s Web site (we’re currently 19 days away from a reveal) and a teaser video you can view below.

We know the Veloster will have a direct-injection engine, possibly some form of the 2011 Elantra‘s new Nu 1.8-liter four-cylinder. In that compact sedan, output is 148 horsepower. The sporty Veloster will get a dual-clutch gearbox and, in the teaser video, Hyundai maintains the 40-mpg claim. If the Veloster is rated 40 mpg on the highway, it would surpass the fuel economy of the Honda CR-Z with the CVT and six-speed manual. However, it’s not clear whether combined mileage would come close to the CR-Z’s 37 and 34 mpg with the CVT and manual, respectively.

The Veloster will also have Blue Link Connectivity, undoubtedly a competitor to Ford’s SYNC system. With the rumored non-hybrid Honda CR-Z turbo possibly on the way, it looks like muscle cars aren’t the only sporty automotive segment to be receiving more interest lately from automakers.

If you have a little more expendable income in your account then you should be able to stretch to some brand new accessories. This is obviously a better route if the money permits as you should receive a guarantee or warranty with the new products. You have a few options open to you even with the new Toyota Tundra accessories. One can approach the Toyota dealerships directly as they will always have a good stock of pretty much every product. This will be the most expensive route for you though.

All New 2011 Buick GL8 Finally Coming

The Invicta is a four door sedan with a roofline similar to a coupe. Powered by a 2.0L I4, this midsize model is likely to represent the direction where GM will be going over the coming years - a smaller, much more fuel efficient model featuring a direct injection turbocharged engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. Whereas a V6 would have been used previously, Buick will rely on the I4 for improved fuel economy while still providing very good power (250 hp, 220 lb-ft of torque).

New Car: 2011 Aston Martin DB9 Special Editions

The end of 2010 is almost upon us, but that hasn’t stopped Aston Martin managing to squeeze in not one but three new special edition DB9s which have just gone on sale from Aston dealers.

The three editions are called the Morning Frost, Carbon Black and Quantum Silver, are available as either coupe or Volante convertible bodystyles and cost from £132,525 including VAT at the new 20 per cent rate.

The DB9 Morning Frost is intended to be a more luxurious offering, as it features pearlescent white paint, 19-inch 10-spoke alloys and silver brake calipers on the outside, while the interior gets metallic bronze leather on the seats and headlining, and piano black trim.

Both the Carbon Black and Quantum Silver editions feature either black or silver paint, different 19-inch alloys and a sports exhaust, plus more piano black trim, a semi-aniline leather roof lining and polished glass switchgear.

All cars are powered by the familiar 470bhp 6.0-litre V12 and six-speed automatic gearbox, and all get a laser etched sill plaque depicting the Aston Martin logo along with “Morning Frost”, “Carbon Black” or “Quantum Silver.”

The three new specials join a host of other limited Astons which have broken cover in 2010.

New Car: 2012 Toyota Vitz/Yaris

Meet the next Toyota Yaris! These are the first official pictures of the next generation Toyota supermini which will arrive in the UK in September 2011. The pictures show the Japanese market car, which is called the Vitz, but the Yaris will look much the same when it arrives here.

Toyota claims that the newcomer was designed under the words agility and sophistication. As a result, the new supermini features a more angular design than its predecessor, with a more sculpted bumper and pointy headlights adding extra attitude. The Yaris has also been designed to be more efficient, and boasts a competitive coefficient drag value of 0.285.

The new car is 100mm longer than the current car, with the extra 50mm in its wheelbase designed to improve cabin space, particularly in the rear. It’s also a useful 30kg lighter than the outgoing model, thanks to a host of minor weight-saving tweaks like only having one windscreen wiper, and tips the scales at a nice, round 1,000kg.

On the inside, Toyota claims to have improved comfort and refinement thanks to improved seats and better noise insulation. The centrally-mounted speedo has also been ditched in favour of a more conventional dash layout.

The engine range includes two petrol motors: a 68bhp 1.0-litre and a 1.33-litre with 93bhp. The larger engine gets stop start, helping fuel economy climb to 74.9mpg . The Japanese models get a CVT gearbox and even the option of four-wheel drive. However, in the UK the Yaris will be fitted with a manual as standard, and just front-wheel drive will be available.

There is a larger, 1.5-litre engine available which could make it to the UK at a later date, joining the diesel and hybrid models which should arrive here in 2012. For more details click here.

First Sketch: Kia KV7 Concept

Kia decided to play Santa early and gifted us with a teaser of its KV7 Concept, which is scheduled to debut next month at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show.

As you can see from the rendering, the KV7 Concept is a crossover whose lines resemble an extended Kia Soul or, if you squint a little, the Ford Flex (though albeit smaller). The KV7’s most funky feature, though, are those secondary passenger doors, which swing up straight up and out – gullwing style. Look out SLS AMG! Inside, the second row bucket seats can swivel to face each other and the rear of the vehicle. Wonder if there will be table inside?

Otherwise, rims match the rest of the Kia family, and it looks like the KV7 will get the Kia corporate face, with the right front headlamp which looking like an evolution from the Kia Kue Kue Concept which debuted back in at the 2007 Detroit Show.

Sneak Peek: 2012 Toyota Prius MPV

Are you into skateboards and/or skateboarding? And the Toyota Prius? Well, we have just the video for you because this YouTube find shows all manner of grinds, aerials, and flips, plus an actual peek at the upcoming Prius MPV.

Deep into video, which includes pro skateboarder Bob Burnquist, we see the Brazilian-American padding up for another run in the rear cargo hold of the Prius MPV. Though we only see it in the open position, the MPV’s hatch lid is definitely affixed at a higher roof point compared to the standard Prius, and that’ll help accommodate extra interior volume. How much exactly? We’ll have to wait till next year to find out at the Detroit Auto Show.

From the billboard teaser we found earlier, we can already see the Prius MPV roofline rides at a greater height. And looking from the outside in, we also catch a glimpse of the rear quarter panel glass, which is definitely larger and a dead giveaway for the MPV’s greater dimensions.

A New Look On 2012 the Mercedes-Benz SLS

On the flip side, a feature which is easily obvious is the first-rate price tag. The original Mini was marketed to customers on a budget, while the Beetle and the Fiat 500 were made as cars for postwar people. Their revived versions are nowhere near cheap. They're mostly for fashion.
The gearbox is a dual clutched affair which works notably well. There's a slight delay whenever you flick the paddles yet in general it feels very responsive and sharp. The car is quite definitely rear wheel drive. The seating position is very back and harks back to old school, honest GT's and blended with the sharp steering you've whole faith in exactly where the front of the vehicle is gonna go. This super car can easily go round edges very, very quick - in case you try hard enough you could actually compete with a four-wheel drive 911 Turbo. It's also really quick in a straight line - indeed outstanding for a heavy, front engined Grand Tourer.
A New Look On 2012 the Mercedes-Benz SLS

New Car: 2012 Mercedes C-Class

As the cheapest and humblest car in Mercedes’ U.S. showrooms, where it lives next to larger, more-powerful, more-luxurious, and more-prestigious vehicles, the C-class has had a tough time establishing itself as a full-cachet, no-apologies Mercedes-Benz. But a window of opportunity seems to be opening for the C-class come the 2012 model year, with its mid-cycle update arriving just as world events and economic challenges have precipitated a shift among luxury buyers toward “right-sized” vehicles containing full-size luxury amenities.

It will certainly try to impress. The restyled 2012 C-class will greet customers with a more upscale face highlighted by a sculpted front fascia and new, CLS-style headlamps that blend into the fenders. Distinct Sport and Luxury trims continue for 2012, with the Sport model being differentiated by its grille and thin chrome spears in the outboard air intakes, which also house the LED running lights that are now standard on all C-class models. The brightwork continues along the doors and around the new rear bumper. The taillamps are also new for 2012, with more distinct detailing and still more LEDs.

The biggest news is a more powerful naturally aspirated engine in the top-shelf C350 Sport, plus the addition of a new base model, the C250, with a turbocharged four-cylinder under its hood. The C350 Sport’s V-6 is a new, direct-injection 3.5-liter, and its output is raised from the outgoing C350’s 268 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque to a healthy 302 hp and 273 lb-ft. The mid-grade C300 retains its 3.0-liter V-6 with 228 hp and 221 lb-ft of torque, but now is offered only with 4MATIC all-wheel drive (and will be the only C-class available thus equipped). At the low end of the range is that new C250, powered by a direct-injected, turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder that produces 201 hp and 229 lb-ft of torque. The C250 is slated to deliver among the highest fuel-economy of any Mercedes-Benz offered on these shores: an estimated 24 mpg combined. (For the record, the larger E350 BlueTec diesel is EPA-rated for 26 combined.) As for acceleration, Mercedes says the C250 should hit 60 mph in 7.1 seconds, a figure it also cites for the C300 4MATIC. The top-dog C350 is said to make the 0-to-60-mph sprint in 5.9.

Each of the three engines comes mated exclusively to a seven-speed automatic transmission, which means that you’ll no longer be able find a manual in the C-class when the 2012 model arrives next summer. (As if you could realistically find one in circulation before!) That means the current SLK300 will be the only U.S. Merc with a row-your-own option. As usual, auto-only also will apply to the 2012 C63 AMG, which also will be refreshed and goes on sale next summer or fall. It will retain the current 6.2-liter V-8, rather than moving to the twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V-8 like other AMGs.
