Giant BASF, who purchased paint products, many automakers which makes annual forecast of colors car Automotive Color Trends. Season 2018-2019, “trending” turned out to be shades of blue and gray. In North America for the second year in a row the leader of the Atomium blue Sky.

The Ministry plans to 2020 to require automobile companies operating in Russia, go to paints and varnishes domestic production, as well as tires, released in the countries of the EEU. According to”Kommersant”, this requirement will be enshrined in amendments to the decree of the government as a measure to deepen localization. On a plan of officials, the staining of the Russian cars must be at least 30% of the paint, in the case of light commercial vehicles you plan to share 50% trucks 70% for parts and assemblies — 90%.

Meanwhile, the “four rings” boast partial matted coatings. The technology is similar to sandblasting: the top layer of varnish removed a few nanometers, and near glossy get matte areas. New way of personalization tested on Audi Q2 and an Audi R8.

With the transition to the domestic tyre no problems. In 2017 in Russia issued 46.8 million tires, of which 17.1 million were exported. Tire manufacturers are ready to meet the needs of the industry. But lucky colors harder. In our country there is not enough high-quality raw materials, nor high-tech processing, so, for example, Hyundai and KIA are buying imported paint from firms BASF and KCC. By the way, the latter works plant in Pavlovsky Posad, where the outfit colors AVTOVAZ, Ford and Volkswagen, but most of the raw materials are imported from Germany.

According to market participants, if the Russian paint was competitive in quality and price, they would have already been used in the automotive industry. While the new requirements are likely lobbied for chemical companies, “vdohnovitsya” attempt of the Ministry to force the car manufacturers to switch to the Russian aluminium. This was due to the need to support “RUSAL”, which fell under U.S. sanctions.

Mitsubishi pajero sport. Решётка радиатора и бампер ощутимо преобразятся. А ещё, судя по прототипу, фронтальная оптика станет двухэтажной с крупными секциями по углам бампера, как на паркетнике Eclipse Cross.

Grille and bumper significantly transformed. And yet, judging by the prototype, the front optics will be two-story with large sections in the corners of the bumper as the SUV Eclipse Cross.

Winter test of the car somewhere in the North of Sweden allowed photospin to take the first pictures of the updated SUV Mitsubishi Pajero Sport. The current generation of models appeared in the summer of 2015 and, of course, micro-updates, implements for a particular model year, a full facelift can not replace. So, this year we should see redrawn Sport.

Camouflaged machine does not allow to consider all details, even on a larger frame. And yet it seemed to us that the new lights not only adjusted the schedule, but he disappeared “flowing” down the section. It was one of the most memorable features of the model, although very controversial.

Modern Pajero Sport sold in Australia, Indonesia, the Philippines (as Montero Sport) and Thailand, several countries in the Far and Middle East and, of course, we have. But in Western Europe (except Britain) and the United States, for example, a model no. But the situation may change after the facelift. In any case, Europe is more likely. Edition Motor1.com even calls potential name for the model in this region — Shogun Sport (designation SUV is now present in Britain). And if the car reaches the US, it could be called half-forgotten there, the name Montero (or Montero Sport).

Probably, the designers intervened in the design of the rear rack, but in the interior of the radical innovations are not expected.

Recall that the current Pajero Sport is equipped with gasoline “aspirated” V6 3.0 MIVEC 6B31 (209 HP, 279 N•m, in some markets 220 HP) and a modern diesel engine 4N15 2.4 MIVEC (181 HP, 430 N•m) with variable turbine geometry. In addition, in Indonesia there is a modification with the old 2.5 diesel 4D56 136 “horses” (314 N•m). In any of these aggregates may be correct. And if you look at market trends can dream about adding in the range of a hybrid version of the Sport tailored to the experience of the creation and evolution benzoelektrosila Outlander.

Ready for any winter: 5 new SUV with highest ground clearance

In your town had a three-month norm of precipitation, and snow removal equipment not delivered? For the last three days you are stuck 6 times and wiped his bottom all the snow gauge in the yard? Let’s see how much money you need to buy a car with such ground clearance, which is enough to forget about these problems forever. At least in the city.

Te who are waiting to see the list of the best hardcore exclusively body-on-frame SUVs, badly wrong. Those who hope that most will be luxury crossovers with air suspension, is also only partly right – because pnevmologika raises only the body, but does not affect the actual clearance. In General, let’s move from speculation to actual facts.

Infiniti QX80

  • Clearance: 234 mm
  • Price: from 4 790 000 rubles

Sunset in the class the tallest looks a little discouraging: just take a swing at a decent ground clearance and 5 million. But in General Infiniti QX80 update was a little lower – if used under the bottom was more than 250 mm, in its present form the ground clearance is claimed at around 234. And yet, despite this, he bypassed colleagues from Toyota and Lexus: Land Cruiser 200 LX570 and have a ground clearance of 230 and 225 mm, respectively.

Infiniti QX80 5.6 '2017–н.в.j infiniti_qx80_5.6_35

High price, however, is not the only feature of QX80. He is ready to surprise and age technical base, which is built – because the update looks in 2017 does not affect the internal filling, even the engine power remained the same. At the core of the design is the frame and four-wheel drive, despite the presence of pangani, implemented via the electromagnetic clutch, causing the front wheels – that is, the scheme here is closer to the crossover. The movement of the machine causes all the same a 5.6-liter V8 with a capacity of 405 HP, docked with a 7-speed automatic. Given the fact that the total mass of the car is almost end-to-end fit within the scope of category B, accounting for 3.4 tons, the maximum speed should be considered for the benefit. But in favor of the clearance, and in favor of comfort is the fact that there are no bridges at the front and rear multi-link suspension here.

Of course, the couple has the same engine 3.8 V8 Twin Turbo (600 HP, 620 N•m), mated with seven-step “robot” SSG with two wet clutches. However, the dry weight of the Roadster due to the sliding mechanism of the roof is 50 kg more than the coupe (1297 kilo), hence “losing”.

In acceleration to 200 km/h version behind Spider coupe McLaren 600LT only 0.2 C (8,4), however, a set of hundreds supercar with an open top similarly quick and 2.9 s, the speed of the Spider just below (323 vs 328 km/h), and the initial price is higher — $500 vs 256. $240 000. However, the circulation of “long tails” of the younger family Sport Series is limited, and if buyers do not snatch them for a few weeks, blame it on the only possible Brexit.

“I am pleased to report that when retracted the roof exhaust system sounds and looks even better!” — urged on by Executive Director Mike Flewitt. At the client’s request, McLaren will be removed from the interior excess weight in the form of audio system and climate control.

Three-piece hard top, made of composite materials, at the push of a button extends the actuator 15 at speeds up to 40 km/h. a wind screen over the heads of the riders is activated independently of the roof. The developers are proud that they, unlike the makers of the cabriolet, not had to further strengthen the structure for greater rigidity. Besides, the downforce was not injured, aerodynamic losses no.
