The first reports about Lexus minivan seemed a joke, but no such model is actually built.

Van Lexus LM, shown in Shanghai, and demonstrated how it might look Toyota Alphard, if she will undertake a masters of Lexus. I’m sure many in the debate will devote their posts to the giant grille in the signature hourglass shape, but the interesting thing here is the cabin.

Architecture of the front panel is very close to alferovsky, but the Central air vents have moved from the edges of the screen under it, and the display grew.

Not accidentally, the protagonist of branded video is not a driver. Lexus LM is a constant story “about the second row.”

The car is not simply a more luxuriously trimmed version of the Alphard. Here, the engineers worked on the ride. According to the publication Motor1.com, minivan, Lexus borrowed from the sedan ES some suspension technology like shock absorbers that react to small moves of the stock due to the special set of valves.

Presented the car was a four-seater, but the company will bring to market a seven-seater option.

Comfort on the second row here has been given special attention. In quadruple configuration bean loungers have got ventilation, massage and heating. In front of them on the bulkhead is located a 26-inch screen entertainment system with a Blu-ray player and sound system 19 speakers. Here was a place 14-liter fridge for drinks and compartments for umbrellas (Hello, rolls Royce and Skoda).

The lights changed lower edge and connected the red jumper, and still in their contours to discern traces of the optics of the Alphard.

Ruler units “El emka” was predicted quite accurately: modification of LM 350 were aspirated engine V6 3.5 and LM 300h — hybrid system on the basis of the “Quartet” 2.5. The impact is not yet named, and the Alphard, it is 301 and 197 HP respectively. The car can be front – and all-wheel drive. In China and some Asian markets, the minivan will appear later this year. In the Russian representation of the company to Drive said that in our market model of the Lexus LM will not be sold.

The word Corsair (“the Corsair, the privateer, the pirate”) is somewhat strange choice for a quiet and comfortable SUV. It seemed more suited to a hot hatch. But the Americans say about the connection with the Latin “cursus” (“traveling, traveling”). And this name is historical: in the 1960s, Ford used the designation Corsair for sedans, convertibles and station wagons.

In new York debuted a compact crossover Lincoln Corsair, the successor to the MKC, a fellow SUV Ford Kuga/Escape next generation. C2 global platform has enabled the car to improve handling and raise body rigidity, but also to tighten electronics. Among the advantages of the Corsair called the standard set of security systems Lincoln Co-Pilot360 and technology “the Phone as a key.” It gives the opportunity not only to open and start the car, but to create a personal profile set of systems are automatically activated when you log in. In case of theft or loss of phone function, you can remotely cancel.

As explained by the company, the new SUV reflects the philosophy of the Quiet Flight (“quiet flight”), and hence, the focus is on smoothness, quietness and a relaxing atmosphere in the cabin.

At the same time Quiet Flight — this design theme. According to the creators of the machine, a relatively simple form of compact multiple smooth lines turned into a “virtual mobile sculpture” that creates a sense of motion even in stillness.

Engineers dispatched to Corsair two four-cylinder boosted engine EcoBoost: 2.0 to 253 HP (373 N•m) and 2.3 284 HP (420 N•m). The first motor is five HP more powerful than the previous generation with the same thrust, and the second added six Newton meters, but lost five forces. Both are combined with vosmidiapazonnym “automatic” (the last generation was a six-speed). With each of the motors, you can get all-wheel drive. In normal conditions the thrust goes to the front axle to reduce fuel consumption, and if necessary thrown back.

The Corsair will debut three new versions of the painting of the interior: Beyond the Blue (blue-white colors), Cashew (rich brown plus black) and a Medium Slate (“soft grey” plus “ebony”).

The driver choose from five driving modes, named Normal (Normal), Excite (sports), Slippery (slippery road), Deep Conditions (mud and sand) and Conserve (spare fuel). Of course, the queries of Lincoln adapted the global suspension. Here, the authors machine isolated rear suspension with special “integral bushings”. Judging by a related Focus, we are talking about memorycache, which bushings have different stiffness in different directions and is thus better than a conventional, absorb vibrations and shocks without losses from handling.

Multimedia system Sync 3 eight-inch touch-screen friendly with smartphones and distributes Wi-Fi. Among the options include head-up display, a premium Revel audio system with 14 speakers, front seat Lincoln Perfect Position with 12 adjustments.

Like the new Aviator, Corsair has received six unique audible alarms (bells), recorded by the Detroit Symphony orchestra. They are distributed in twenty-five situations (from the seat belt of the forgotten to open the fuel tank flap). These symphonies should be particularly good to appear on a background of inner silence, not only of conventional soundproof materials, but rare for cars of this class a double wall between the engine compartment and interior. There is also a system of active noise cancellation. Staff at Co-Pilot360 automatic braking with pedestrian detection, monitoring of blind zones of mirrors, holding in the band, automatically switching the high beam and rear view camera.

The second row moves in the longitudinal direction 152 mm. At the conviction of the company, the legroom here more than in some crossovers.

Optionally it is possible to Co-Pilot360 Plus, which includes adaptive cruise control with lane departure in traffic (Stop&Go) technology to hold on the center of the lane, the speed limit by reading signs, assistant to the evasion of obstacles (work, when to stop before it does not work), system of emergency braking when reversing and full samarkandyk (steering wheel, gas, brake), launched by one button. To make Lincoln the Corsair will be a plant in Louisville (Kentucky). In the U.S. the car will appear this fall. Prices not yet announced, but the previous generation model (MKC) is sold in the USA with a price of $33 995 (2.18 million rubles at the exchange rate).

History

Crossover Lincoln MKC appeared in 2013. It was built on the Global C platform as the Kuga/Escape that time. In fact, the model can be represented as a more luxuriously decorated Kuga in the corporate design of Lincoln.

The car was equipped with four 2.0 EcoBoost (248 HP, 373 N•m) and 2.3 (289 HP, 414 N•m), six-speed automatic transmission, front-or all-wheel drive. Optional was adaptive suspension.

In 2017, was held restyling. Most strongly changed the front part, which received a new grille (photo collage on the bottom right). At the same time was expanded capabilities of the mobile app Lincoln Way, and the automatic braking began to react to pedestrians. The demand for large MKC will not name, but it is surprisingly stable. In 2016, the U.S. was purchased 25 562 cars in 2017-m — 048 27, 2018 — 26 241.

For the money the buyer will receive a 400 HP, 696 N•m, the acceleration to a hundred in 4.8 seconds and a range of 480 km cycle WLTP.

In new York announced the winners of the competition World Car of the Year, and the crossover Jaguar I-Pace was the winner in several categories. In the struggle for the main prize of the “Brit” walked another electric car Audi e-tron, as well as a pair of Volvo S60/V60. In addition, the “Ah-pace” award for the best design of the year (World Car Design of the Year) and the title of “most green” (World Green Car). For the brand Jaguar is already a second triumph at the WCOTY, because in 2017 the victory was won by the SUV F-Pace.

SUV Suzuki Jimny fourth generation was the leader in category World Urban Car (best city car), ahead of the Hyundai Santro and the Kia Soul. It seems the jury (86 motoring journalists from 24 countries) started the Jimny trolling hard, but the Japanese did not seem offended.

Award for performance (World Performance Car) earned McLaren 720S, not the Aston Martin Vantage or Mercedes-AMG GT. Man of the year (World Car Person of the Year) named Sergio Marchionne, who died last summer. The jury noted the achievements of Manager at the helm of FCA, and his concern for Ferrari.
