If you expect to see on a light-DBX “brackets”, as the majority of Aston in recent years, something was wrong: judging by the teaser, the lights resemble the optics Vantage of the latest generation.

The British called the month of the premiere crossover Aston Martin DBX — December of this year. In addition, for the first time officially announced the return of the engine 4.0 V8 twin-turbo 550 HP and 700 N•m. Thus, DBX was the most powerful Aston with a V8 in the current line of stamps. For comparison, the eight-cylinder version of the coupe DB11 has the power and traction to 510 HP and 675 nm, and the model Vantage — 510 HP and 685 nm. Indirectly the advertised maximum speed of the crossover: it is “substantially in excess of 290 km/h.”

In this video, is interesting not only for the sound of the engine, but the first image of the rear optics of the model in the form of a thin curved strip that we made in the photo caption. By the way, the sound is different from the tone of the engine on the Mercedes, because in Aston working on it separately.

And then to the picture added to the grille, headlights and running lights. But the interior, even in a semi assembled state, we have already seen.

With these weapons’t Aston Martin DBX will have to compete on the market with models such as Lamborghini Urus (4.0 V8, 650 HP, 850 N•m) Porsche Cayenne Turbo (V8 4.0, 550 HP, 770 N•m) or the upcoming Ferrari Purosangue. Start to worry and the other “Italian” — Maserati Levante GTS/Trofeo (3.8 V8, 550 HP, 730 N•m or 590 HP, 730 N•m).

The British claim that turns on the ring (and in particular on the North loop) DBX develops the same speed as the Vantage, and performs braking harder than DBS Superleggera.

Of course, in the sights of Aston will be the fastest crossovers on the nürburgring: the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63’s (4.0 V8, 510 HP, 700 N•m lap time 7:49.369) and Stelvio Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio (2.9 V6, 510 HP, 600 N•m 7:51.7). The eight-cylinder Aston Martin DBX is already close to him. The company said that in the course of everyday testing it has passed through the North loop in eight minutes.

The manufacturer assured that the model approached the final part of the test, and said: “Program testing DBX will be the most extensive among all models Aston Martin in history.”

In the case of two coupe Aston Martin (and the related convertible Volante DB11) used motor Mercedes-AMG M177. It is used in the six models of the Mercedes: from 63 C to 63 GT. Same, on idea, and will come in the first Antonovsky SUV. In addition to the V8 engine in the range units of the crossover are expected motors V12 5.2 and 3.0 V6, plus the hybrid version on the basis of the “six” (probably the new V6 is the same as that installed in the compartment Aston Martin Valhalla). While crossover only V8 confirmed by the company itself.

In the long term cannot be excluded completely electric version DBX.

To release the SUV will be the new Aston factory in St. Athanasios (actually the Assembly of the pre-production trial batches of a long time coming). By the way, in the same company to get registered first production electric car brand — liftback Rapide E — and the battery crossover Lagonda All-Terrain, which is able to share electric filling with fellow DBX.

“The four-door Gran Coupe” will be the first purely electric model of the BMW Group in this segment, but instead of new pictures from the tests, the company slipped in March pictures of the prototype.

The Bavarians have shared the official information about the electric sedan BMW i4, which in 2021 will be produced at the main plant in Munich, side-by-side with the compartment of the fourth series, the dvuhdverok M4 and “treshka”. It turned out that the motor develops 390 kW (530 HP), that is, the recoil is on par with a V8 engine of 4.4. Disperse hundreds takes four seconds and a maximum speed exceeds 200 km/h. Thanks for that should say the BMW eDrive technology of the fifth generation allows you to put the main components of the actuator in one case EDU.

If from the concept BMW Vision Dynamics i anything left, it hides the disguise. By the way, the author of the show-Kara Domagoj Dukes from the APR appointed chief designer of BMW.

“Extremely flat” battery in the bottom weighs about 550 kg and has the capacity of 80 kWh, making the reserve up to 600 km in the cycle WLTP. The battery provides charging power to 150 kW. The six-minute “filling” enough to increase the mileage of 100 km To recharge up to 80% should be 35 minutes. Waiting for “ay-four” (at the same time it will be released iNext) define the SUV iX3, which in 2020, as a pioneer, you will fill out the most painful bumps. By 2023, BMW promises to build a 25-electric models.

We already know that the base Corvette Stingray in the U.S. will cost from $58 900, but shipping will raise the price to $59 995 (3,83 million). The predecessor of the Corvette C7 has requested $55 900 (3,57 million).

Buyers targhee Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, hoping to obtain their machines by the end of this year, will have to wait until February 2020. This was officially announced by the press Secretary Chevy Chris Bonelli at the conference in Detroit. According to him, the delay has led a 40-day workers ‘ strike, which began on 16 September on the American GM sites, including collecting the Corvette plant in Bowling Green. The protest action ended with the victory of the United trade Union of workers of automotive industry (UAW), who sought the higher wages and benefits. However, the effects of downtime will be felt for some time.

It is not clear how the strike will affect the launch of the Roadster C8 Corvette Convertible. Since “went” the whole production schedule, by the first quarter of 2020 version with folding roof may not make it.

According to estimates by consulting firm LMC Automotive, because of the strike, GM has nemovitosti 300 000 cars, and only a quarter of this amount can be compensated. Now to speed up production and catch up there is no way, because the factories work around the clock. But to worry about new Chevrolet protests do not: the UAW and GM entered into an agreement for four years. The Union will now proceed to deal with Ford using the GM contract as a template.

This new European update, however, the model Honda Civic for the North American market updated at the end of summer 2019. Then it also affected the appearance and interior, but not the technical stuffing.

To the virtual buttons that appear frequently in the interiors of modern cars, there is a claim. To use it blindly is not possible (and it directly affects safety), there are questions to responsiveness. This, for example, agree the experts of the Honda company. In the updated hatchback and sedan Civic for the European market you can see the new control unit multimedia system, where instead of virtual buttons used good old physical. Now you do not need to adjust the volume, slide your finger on a smooth panel. Plus there are quick access buttons to the navigation map and the phone. This was not before.

As before restyling, the Civic in Europe is equipped with three turbo engines to choose from ― petrol 1.0 (126 HP) and 1.5 (182 HP) and diesel 1.6 (120 HP). Depending on the version of the car equipped with six-speed “mechanics” or variator devyatietazhnyj “automatic”.

In the cabin — other finishing materials to the front and door panels, improved insulation. Optionally available electrically adjustable driver’s seat in eight directions.

In Europe, sales of the restyled Cívica will start in December this year, and the first customer cars will reach dealers in January 2020.
