2014 Fiat Panda Cross at 2014 Geneva Motor Show
Fiat has launched at the 84th Geneva Motor show the range-topping Panda Cross which is slated to go on sale this fall.
Sitting above the Panda 4x4, Fiat’s new Panda Cross uses the same torque-on-demand four-wheel drive system and electronic locking differential. The system is capable of automatically distributing available torque between the front and rear wheels depending on traction. On very steep hills the driver is helped by a Hill Descent Control system that is also suitable for going down on bumpy roads.
The more rugged-looking Panda comes with an off-road-inspired body kit including additional plastic body cladding, beefier wheel arches, updated roof bars and redesigned fog lights. It rides on a fresh new set of 15-inch rims and on the inside benefits from Fiat’s Blue&Me infotainment system together with a climate control system and leather trim.
Customers will have the possibility of configuring their Panda Cross with either a 90 HP 0.9-liter TwinAir or a 80 HP 1.3-liter MultiJet. Opt for the gasoline engine and Fiat will offer a specially developed 6-speed manual gearbox that comes with a shortened first gear. Also updated is the vehicle’s MacPherson front suspension as well as the rear torsion beam better suited for the 4x4 system.
The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe has made its official public debut this week for the 84th Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland.
The most important member of Mercedes-Benz’s lineup for the Swiss auto show is without any doubt the S-Class Coupe revealed online about a month ago. Looking very stylish and sleek, the CL-Class replacement is an elegant two-door coupe which is 5027mm long, 1899m wide and 1411mm tall, with a generous 2495mm wheelbase.
Some say the rear end shows a few similarities with the Renault Laguna Coupe but nevertheless the S-Class Coupe is one of the most beautiful cars to wear the three-pointed star. Mercedes-Benz previewed the model in September last year at the Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany with a concept and now they are getting ready for the car’s market launch programmed for the second half of the year.
The German marque has announced at first it will be available exclusively as an S 500 Coupe model powered by a 4.7-liter V8 engine outputting 455 HP (335 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft). Among the car’s highlights we must refer to the MAGIC BODY CONTROL’s curve tilting function and the availability of optional headlights with 47 Swarovski crystals.

nanoFLOWCELL AG has unveiled the QUANT e-Sportlimousine at the Geneva Motor Show.
Dressed is bespoke “chrystal lake blue” paint, the QUANT has an aerodynamic exterior with a rakish windscreen, a sloping double bubble roof and a distinctive rear window. The model also has copper accents, gullwing door and 22-inch alloy wheels.
The four-seat interior is elegantly equipped with premium leather upholstery, ash wood trim and cooper accents. There’s also a full-length center console and a massive display that measures 1.25 meters wide and 16 centimeters tall.
Detailed performance specifications were not released but the company says “Flow cells combine aspects of electrochemical accumulator cells with those of fuel cells. Liquid electrolytes are kept in two tanks and circulated through the cell. At the heart of the system, a membrane separates the two electrolytic solutions, but allows electrical charge to pass through and thereby produce power for the drive train.” The company goes on to say “The nanoFLOWCELL has a 5-times greater performance-by-weight than current lithium-ion technologies that power most of today’s electrical vehicles, meaning its driving range is 5-times greater than a conventional unit of the same weight.” This setup enables the car to travel up to 600 km (373 miles) on a single charge.
2015 Hyundai Sonata teaser image
Hyundai has released the first teaser images of the 2015 Sonata, ahead of its debut later this month.
The company declined to release details but the redesigned sedan will have a larger grille which is flanked by LED-infused headlights. We can also see metallic trim, a prominent character line and attractive alloy wheels.
The upscale styling continues in the cabin as the model is nicely equipped with wood trim, gloss black accents and metallic finishes. Other highlights include a distinctive steering wheel, an infotainment system and a wide center console.
Hyundai has remained coy on technical specifications but previous reports have indicated the entry-level 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine could be replaced by a turbocharged 1.6-liter unit that produces 201 bhp (105 kW) and 264 Nm (195 lb-ft) of torque.
Honda entry-level MPV design sketch 19.07.2013
Honda has released a design sketch with the Brio MPV which will be showcased starting September 19 at the Indonesia Motor Show.
Developed for the Asian market, the MPV will offer seven seats in a three-row configuration. In terms of design, the car appears to be surprisingly attractive for what will essentially be a low-cost car and hopefully these appealing styling cues will be carried over once the production model is shown in the metal.
Powering Honda’s new budget MPV is a 1.5-liter gasoline engine which promises to deliver “both sporty performance and good fuel efficiency.” Little else is known about the model, except that it rides on the Honda Freed platform and has a 185mm ground clearance.
The MPV is the third body style which will be added to the Brio family, following the hatchback’s launch in 2011 and the sedan’s arrival in November 2012.
Production will commence in early 2014 at Honda’s second plant in Karawang.
2014 Honda Fit Hybrid 19.07.2013
[update] Additional photos added.
These are the first official (and confirmed) images with the 2014 Honda Fit/Jazz.
We have seen several leaked photos with the new Fit/Jazz but these are the first ones published by Honda showing a design with some influences from the 2012 Insight with angular headlamps and a large front bumper. The back of the car looks quite busy with its Volvo-inspired taillights, ventilated bumper and the chrome trim from one taillight to the other.
These images are also depicting the hybrid version which makes use of a new four-cylinder, 1.5-liter Atkinson-cycle engine working together with a high-output electric motor, lithium-ion battery and a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Thanks to this setup, the 2014 Honda Fit/Jazz Hybrid achieves a fuel economy of 36.4 km/l (85.6 mpg US / 102.8 mpg UK or 2.7 liters / 100 km).
The 2014 Honda Fit/Jazz Hybrid comes with a choice of three driving modes: EV, Hybrid and Engine, meaning it can run as a zero-emission electric car, as a hybrid or as a conventionally-powered vehicle.
Full details will be released closer to the car’s launch in Japan scheduled for September.
Rumors about a possible Koenigsegg One:1 special edition started to surface on the Internet a few weeks ago. Until now, it has been rumored that its odd usage of the number one in its name is because it will be a one-off model. New details now suggest that there will be five units built and that the name has nothing to do with the number of units produced.
In an interview with Cars UK, Christian von Koenigsegg reported that the car’s One:1 name is in fact a reference to its power-to-weight ratio - 1 horsepower for every 1 kg of weight. This means that the next supercar will deliver somewhere between 1,250 and 1,350 horsepower, which is a significant increase over the Agera R’s 1,140 horsepower.
Von Koenigsegg also announced that the supercar is still in its early stages of development and a production date is not set. We anticipate that all five units will be sold on the Chinese market, and the price will be near $2 million.
For now, this is all of the information we have on the One:1. We do, however, have our own rendering of what we think this new hypercar will look like, which you can see above. We’ll keep you updated as more information rolls out.
