New Alfa Remeo Spider 2010

The Alfa Romeo Spider is a roadster produced by the Italian manufacturer Alfa Romeo from 1966 to 1993 (190 Spiders were badged as 1994 Commemorative Editions for the North American market). Widely regarded as a design classic, it remained in production for almost three decades with only minor aesthetic and mechanical changes. The three first series were assembled by Pininfarina in Grugliasco and the fourth series in San Giorgio Canavese. The last Spider was produced in April 1993, it was also the last rear wheel drive Alfa Romeo produced before Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione was introduced.

Now, Alfa Spider is compact concept created by students Gaiani Alberto, Massimo Zedda Paparella and Michela, for the 2009 edition of the Master in Transportation Design organized by the Polytechnic University in Milano (Milan, Italy) in partnership with Alfa Romeo. SuperCarDesign concepts presented in the 2010 event, which took place on May 3 and at Bobbio in northern Italy.

The project was introduced by Samuel Codegoni designer, faculty member at the University of Italy. One of the main idea that drives this project is to express a sense of suspense in the action.

"This is clearly away from the first production model as a reference: the Duetto iconic of the 1960s - the second reference is the Alfa Spider from the 90s, with a distinctive wedge-shaped profile."

The layout features a mechanical engine is mounted longitudinally front combined with rear-wheel drive. The soft-top is electrically operated.

Design has always been an important factor for Alfa Romeo. In fact, it's the combination of design and engine that has made it into the legend it certainly is today. There has been made quite a few Alfa concept cars over the years by the Alfa in-house design department Centero Stile, and by outside design houses like Pininfarina, Bertone, Zagato and Giugiaro/ItalDesign. Below are some of these concepts, - and cars made in very limited numbers. Most of these are not actually working, and were just made for showing off at different Motor Shows.

Little about the alfa remeo
The Italians would call any open car a "Spider", but the name actually comes from the old horse carriages suitable for two. (You know the one Doc always rides in the old western movies). Since Spider is the general term for an open two-seater, or roadster, - there has been several Alfa Spiders (and Ferrari's for that matter) over the years. These pages mainly concentrate on the Pininfarina designed 1995 GTV/Spider, - with some other Alfa models thrown in as well.

Anyway, - I bought the Spider first of all because of the exceptional and award winning design and I was constantly looking at the reflection in the shopping windows when I was waiting for a green light. However, I soon discovered that I had bought something a lot more! Suddenly, terms like "driving pleasure", and "the Alfa Romeo legend" made sense. I was always trying to come up with poor excuses to take it for a spin and it did what most cars won't do for you.

All you need to know in couriers

Couriers, no brief introduction needed, it is a type of delivery service provided by delivery companies. This service is offered by an organization that affords some special deliveries such as documents, information, money and packages. It is a fastest type of service than other documentation delivery services, and the modern world relies on them. This courier service is in existence from ancient times, but the only difference is the technology. When you see those days, the kings and the rulers send their message to other people or kings through some piece of old paper and attach it with the legs of the birds. Birds usually fly faster and they train the birds for such deliveries.

Next, how they started to send, they send through their soldiers or through some other people who were assigned for that purpose. Those people use different modes of transportation such as horse, and boats to deliver it. From this, one can infer that these types of delivery service are in existence from ancient times. Day by day, people came to know about this service and its importance so the courier companies were started, and in the UK many large delivery companies are providing these types of delivery services. During the year 1970s, many courier delivery companies were started in the UK, and for transportation of special items, some specialist couriers were used.

These companies to delivery the items have courier, and they are the person who used to transport and deliver the items. Most of the people say that couriers are usually costly than other services, but it is only partially true because cheap courier services are also available and the rate depends upon the type of material you send and also, it depends upon the distance. These companies have two types of clients and one is who sends the courier and the other is who receives the courier. And the delivery companies have to satisfy these both clients in an equal way, and any mistake in their service will let to develop a bad name. You can send the materials and items within a short span of time and that is the major advantage of this service.

When you consider the postal service, they are not as efficient as the courier service companies because in postal service they won’t follow the procedure of maintaining the record of the deliveries, but the courier companies usually maintain a record of all deliveries so that if you have any queries on the delivery, you can contact them. Some of the companies also check whether the recipient has received the delivery and intimate it to the sender. It doesn’t end up with here, they also attract you in technological aspects such as confirm your delivery through SMS.

Reliability, accuracy, efficiency, time management, planning, controlling and organizing are the ingredients of their service. We can even compare their role to management in business because they manage it in such a way like management.

New Nissan X-Trail 2011

An overview, Several years ago, at school, there was a adolescent guy called Bradley. Now Bradley was about 6-feet tall, was adequately lanky, and was as white as archetype paper. Yet somehow he managed to be blacker than Fiddy Cent. You see, his cap was consistently backwards, his agreeable repertoire comprised every rap song anytime written, and his jeans were baggier than a abrasion cutting a tuxedo.

Bradley’s botheration was image. He aloof couldn’t acquire what he was, and several years later, he was no hip-hop music producer. No, he was aloof addition white guy again, and was aback to normal. Which is why it affronted me at the time, that he couldn’t aloof be himself. Why did he accept to try to affect everyone?

The aforementioned goes with the Australian car market. What is it with bodies affairs four-wheel-drives back they’re acutely not activity to anytime go off-road? I accept several accompany who accept bought soft-roaders and debris to alike booty them bottomward to the beach. “I ability blemish it” was one of the responses, and what afraid me alike added was that they were asleep serious.

Engine choices are also changed from two to one as only a 2-litre petrol engine is available. This is the MR20DE 4-cylinder engine, different from the one in the first X-Trail which had a QR-series engine. The all-aluminium MR engine series was jointly developed by Nissan and Renault and is used in the French carmaker’s models too. The 2-litre version for the new X-Trail produces 139 bhp/198 Nm and has enhanced efficiency with variable valve timing. It’s actually the same RON95-compatible engine as found in the Sylphy (but tweaked for enhanced torque) and like the sedan, it also uses Nissan’s XTRONIC CVT with 6 speeds.

The SUV’s engine and transmission also ensure superior fuel economy. Tests have shown that the X-Trail’s average fuel consumption is a healthy 14km per litre (Japan 10-15 mode) - and this is comparable to that of many sedans on the road today.

These include bi-xenon headlamps for improved visibility at night and during bad whether; an intelligent system for true keyless entry and startups; enhanced audio system with MP3 playback, six virtual CDs, USB port, AUX jack, SD Card connectivity, Bluetooth function and Telephone Control Input; as well as dual air bags, ABS, BA (Brake Assist) and six-star safety rating by the Japanese New Car Assessment Programme.

New Mazda CX-7 2010 Many Advantages

The 2010 Mazda CX-7, a luxury sedan ranked 13 of 26 Affordable Midsize SUVs. This ranking is based on analysis of 66 published reviews and test drives the Mazda CX-7, and data analysis in the USA about the reliability and security.

For 2010, Mazda's performance-minded SUV gets a makeover inside and out. The changes add up to great value equation - the CX-7 is a big family SUV with cool style and sporty driving experience.

Five-seat CX-7 is a transporter family that does not look or drive like one. This is a great choice for families who want a zippy performance at an affordable price. For 2010, CX-7 offers a new styling and a new base engine - 2.5-liter powerplant is the same used in the Mazda5 and Mazda3. Four-cylinder engine makes 161 horsepower and 161 pound-feet of torque, which means it makes less power than the previous engine turbocharged SUV, but will achieve fuel economy better.

"The CX-7 has been a Car and Driver crossover favorite since its debut in 2006 -- lots of style, respectable power, and road manners worthy of the ‘Zoom-Zoom' tagline," says Car and Driver. "The only element that seemed to need attention was pricing, which could be perceived as a little high versus the base models of key competitors such as the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV-4." Mazda has addressed this concern with the new model -- the 2010 CX-7's base price is $22,300, a decrease of $2,350 compared to the 2009 base model. While the price is still a bit higher than the Honda's and Toyota's, it's a step in the right direction. Since the CX-7 is substantially refreshed and costs less than last year, it may make more sense to wait for this 2010 model than to buy a 2009 CX-7.

Other SUVs to Consider
Though the CX-7 is improved, it still isn't perfect. It may not suffice as a good vehicle for large families because of a cramped rear seat and small cargo area. Buyers who need these attributes and can live without the CX-7's especially sporty ride should consider the Saturn Outlook and GMC Acadia. The Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 also offer plenty of cargo space, and the RAV4 even boasts an optional third row.

Details: Mazda CX-7
The 2010 CX-7 comes in three trim levels -- the new SV base model, Sport, Touring and Grand Touring -- with a new 2.5-liter base engine and an optional turbocharged four-cylinder.

"CX-7 emphasizes sport over utility and ride comfort to stand out in a crowded market segment. Its turbo 4-cylinder engine is neither as fuel-efficient as one might expect nor as smoothly powerful as it ought to be. But there's appeal here for those who need something roomier than a midsize car and want fresh-looking SUV styling."
"For the sporty-minded, it sets the standard for so-called crossover-utility vehicles." -- USA Today
"We've drawn many comparisons between the VW Tiguan and the Mazda CX-7, but which is the better buy? Both vehicles are handsome-looking crossover SUVs. Performance is also very good in both vehicles. Although the Mazda has more cabin space and better tech, the Tiguan's better fuel economy and build quality make it a slightly better long-term investment."
"This is a great car for the money, especially when compared to its competition."
"If you're looking for a crossover that's a little different than the rest, one that will stand out from the crowd, you really should consider the CX-7. Resist the urge to pile on the options, and you'll have a deceptively elegant, delightfully inexpensive crossover that will be the envy of the neighborhood." -- About.com
CX-7 Performance - 8.6
Test drivers find the 2010 Mazda CX-7 continues to offer deliciously sporty performance, especially for an SUV. Though reviewers heavily criticized the previous model's fuel economy, a new normally aspirated engine for 2010 offers a more efficient option. "Cruising down the coast, we felt -- if only for a moment -- that there might be something to Mazda's claim of 'the soul of a sports car,'" says CNET. "The CX-7 has the heart. Mazda's crossover certainly feels sporty in the power and the handling departments, as long as you don't push it too hard." Read More

CX-7 Exterior - 9.0 (Excellent)
The 2010 CX-7 receives a minor exterior freshening, including a revised front fascia, new grille and redesigned rear bumper. Reviewers call it one of the better looking SUVs in its class. Consumer Reports says the exterior "is treated to a cheerful facelift, giving it a smiling appearance much like the revised MX-5." Read More

CX-7 Interior - 7.6 (Good)
The 2010 Mazda CX-7 excels in performance and exterior styling, but it loses points for its interior. The cramped rear seat detracts from the cabin's appeal, and the CX-7's family-car appeal. On the plus side, interior updates for 2010 improve the cabin quality and layout. "Splashes of chrome trim brighten the appearance of the dashboard, and upgraded upholstery materials (both cloth and leather), a new steering wheel, and revised gauges elevate the quality of the interior," says Car and Driver. Read More

CX-7 Safety - 8.7 (Very Good)
The 2010 Mazda CX-7 has received excellent scores in federal government crash tests. It also features a comprehensive array of safety equipment, including side curtain air bags and electronic stability control. However, there are front visibility concerns due to the CX-7's styling. Read More

CX-7 Reliability - 6.0 (Mediocre)
The 2010 Mazda CX-7 reliability score shown is the Predicted Reliability rating provided by J.D. Power and Associates. This score is based on trending the past three years of historical initial quality and dependability data from J.D. Power's automotive studies, specifically the Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS) and the Initial Quality Study (IQS). The 2010 CX-7 comes with Mazda's three-year/36,000-mile basic warranty.

Dodge press conference - 2010 LA Auto Show

In 2010 LA Auto Show media days at the rear us, it still contains many fun and also interesting, anecdotes that don't eagerly fit into our traditional coverage.

Dodge press conference - 2010 LA Auto ShowPowered by testosterone:
In the Dodge press conference, some of the best lines came, when the Dodge President and CEO Ralph Gilles were introducing the revamped Charger. He eagerly noted that this version delivered "much more sex per pound" and that it was like "Superman and Clark Kent, all in one." Gilles also thought that when the Charger is parked nearby it "makes other vehicles wet their pants”.

Audi Diesel Cars in USA

There was some talk of Audi bringing a diesel version of every model to the U.S., but according to this article at The New York Times ("Audi Hedges on New Models"), it's not necessarily true.

Audi of America's president, Johan de Nysschen, is quoted as saying, "We’re considering the A1, but the U.S. luxury car buyer is not ready for compact luxury...When lighter, smaller vehicles become the norm, it’s a possibility."

Well, that may take years and years because most Americans love everything BIG. The cost of gas is rising and people would much rather fill up their gas-guzzlers than go small and save a ton of money. It would be great if Audi was the car company that could knock some sense into the American public. Why not create a commercial educating us about the benefits of buying a smaller, luxury car?

New Hummer H 3 Inspired Styling

The H3 boasts great off-road capability in a distinctive, rugged package. However, it costs a lot more than similar SUVs, offers only mediocre highway performance, and has the worst fuel economy in its class.

With a base price that's over $33,000, the H3 is one of the most expensive SUVs in its class -- even when compared to other off-road SUVs. Even worse, its poor 14/18 mpg fuel economy rating is the lowest in its class. While these factors may make the H3 seem like a lousy value, its excellent all-terrain capabilities and high ground clearance might make it worth it for real off-road enthusiasts. In addition, the 2009 base model received an "Excellent" value rating from IntelliChoice, meaning its five-year cost of ownership is better than average.

Buyers should know that the 2009 or 2010 models may be your last chance to get your hands on a Hummer. GM's sale of the Hummer brand to Sichuan Tengzhong Heavy Industrial Machinery, a Chinese company, fell through in late February 2010 because the Chinese government didn't approve the deal. GM is expected to fold the Hummer brand over time and will continue to honor Hummer warranties. Production has been suspended since January 2010.

2011 Infiniti G25

The Infiniti G37 sports sedan is one of our favorite cars here at Consumer Reports Auto Test Center. It's not common to find a car that's comfortable on a long trip, as well as being an entertaining, drift-king around the track.

But the G has long occupied an unusual place in the market. Unlike rivals BMW 3 Series, Lexus IS, and Mercedes C-Class, the G never offered a lower-powered version. Instead, it carved out a niche by selling lots of power at a price comparable to the base-engine competition.

Still, you have to wonder. When most compact sports sedans are used to ferry professionals on their daily commute rather than racing around a track, the ability to go 0-60 mph in the G37's 5.6 seconds gets lost in the wash. However, a lower lease price and better fuel economy can mean a lot to this buyer, especially in a down economy.
