Nissan LEAF 2011 "Pure Electric Car First In US"

2011 Nissan Leaf is a pure electric car first offered for sale to the U.S. mass market. This 5-passenger, 4-door hatchback runs exclusively on electric power. The leaves come in two trim levels, base SV and uplevel SL. All use a 107-horsepower electric motor and lithium-ion battery. Nissan claims a maximum driving range of 100 miles. Leaves charging port can accommodate a 110-volt household outlet or 220-volt. It takes about 20 hours to charge from 110-volt outlet.
Using a special station at home 220-volt charging, fully charged takes about 8 hours. SL models are available with port "quick charge" that can charge to 80 percent capacity in 30 minutes. The leaves come only with single-speed transmission that functions like automatic. Available safety features include ABS, traction control, antiskid system, front-side airbags, and curtain side airbags. A navigation system is standard on all. SL model has a rearview camera and a small roof mounted solar panels, which provide cost drip into 12-volt batteries that power accessory items, such as the climate system.

The engineers and designers behind Nissan LEAF worked to create a competitively priced real-world car that would enable Nissan to lead mobility into the zero-emission era. To ensure comfort, spaciousness and cargo capacity, Nissan LEAF employs a completely new chassis and body layout.

"Our car had to be the world's first, medium-size, practical EV that motorists could afford and would want to use every day. And that's what we've created. The styling will identify not only Nissan LEAF but also the owner as a participant in the new era of zero-emission mobility," said Masato INOUE, Product Chief Designer.

Nissan LEAF's frontal styling is characterized by a sharp, upright V-shaped design featuring long, up-slanting light-emitting diode (LED) headlights that employ a blue internal reflective design that announces, "This car is special." But the headlights do more than make a statement. They are also designed to cleverly split and redirect airflow away from the door mirrors, thus reducing wind noise and drag. And, the headlights provide yet one more benefit in that they consume just 10 percent of the electricity of conventional lamps, which helps Nissan LEAF to achieve its world-class range autonomy.

Through bright trim colors inside, Nissan LEAF creates a pleasing and stylish cabin environment. An environmentally friendly "blue earth" color theme originates from the Aqua Globe body color of Nissan LEAF's introductory model. This theme is carried into the interior through blue dashboard highlights and instrument illumination.

Zero-emission mobility programs under the banner of the Renault-Nissan Alliance include partnerships with countries such as the UK and Portugal, local governments in the Japan and the USA, and other sectors, for a total of nearly 30 partnerships worldwide.

In these partnerships major efforts focus on three areas:
  • Development of a comprehensive charging infrastructure through public and private investment,
  • Incentives and subsidies from local, regional, and national governments, and
  • Public education on the individual and societal benefits of zero-emissions mobility.

2011 Chevrolet Volt Electric Sedan

The 2011 Chevrolet Volt. Powered by electricity without being tethered to electrical outlets. It drives gas- and emissions-free for most commutes(6). But if life takes you a little further, as it tends to do sometimes, the gas-powered onboard generator can take you wherever you need to go, giving you up to 375 miles(9) of total range. So you can just sit back and drive. Isn't that what cars are for?

General Motors has been working for nearly four years to bring the Volt electric sedan to the market, and, based on what we have experienced, the end result is an electric-powered sedan surprisingly good, brilliant technology. Four-seat Volt. 

Chevrolet Volt uses a large 420-pound, T-shaped lithium-ion batteries, installed right in the middle of the car, under the center console and rear seat, to power the car through a large 149-horsepower, 368 foot-pounds of AC electric motor with planetary transmission and transaxle driving the front wheels. Chevrolet says a fully charged battery will run an electric car alone for almost 47 miles. 

The battery, developed in conjunction with Korean LG Chemical, a leader in this technology, using a slim cell 288 is divided into four 72-cell packs. The battery has its own separate heating and cooling system to allow it to operate efficiently in extreme temperatures. The battery can be fully charged at the normal household current in 10-12 hours, according to Chevrolet, and with 240-volt charging station, in about four hours. Since the electricity tariff varies wildly across the country, Chevrolet is estimated from the cost of one night will cost $ 1.00 to $ 1.50 per day, far less than a few gallons of gasoline it would take most of the commuters get to work and back. Chevrolet will cost you $ 490 for rapid charging station, plus whatever your local electric power will be charged for installation, and some electricity companies are ready to offer discounts on installation to promote the idea. The first 4400 Chevrolet Volt buyers will get a free charging station.

When the battery depletion, the future felt by the electronic control system that connects the battery, motor, clutch, transaxle, and starter / generator together, starting 1.4-liter gasoline engine, and convert the starter into 55-kilowatt generator, which then supplies electrical power to the battery and motor so that the journey can continue.

The journey may continue for 9.3 gallon fuel tank runs out of fuel, which calculates the distance to be about 350 miles Chevrolet, or 47 miles on battery and 310 miles using gasoline to charge the battery. the battery is never completely discharged, and operated continuously between 50 and 65 percent of capacity, but this system is directed to preserve battery life and under extreme conditions of heat, cold and continuous duty. 

The 1.4-liter dual-overhead-Volt's cam, four-valve, fuel injection petrol engine is the same engine used in the Chevrolet Cruze, without a turbocharger, and rated at 84 horsepower at 4800 rpm. Because there is the possibility of a long period of storage of gasoline, Volt is built with the system, sealed pressurized fuel, and Chevrolet has determined that only premium unleaded fuel is used because it can stand up to long periods of storage without damage. There is a warning system that tells the driver to go out for a drive to burn every solution that has achieved fuel.

Although the Volt can be characterized as hybrid series by some definitions, is to affirm the Chevrolet Volt extended range electric vehicles with onboard generation, and that the gasoline engine, because it adds power via a generator / starter, never directly drives the front tires.

Battery Volt can drive in one of three modes, Normal, Sport and Mountain, both within the range Drive or Low in the planetary transmission, offers a lot of situational flexibility. Volt engineers suggested using low range all the time driving a car in heavy traffic bumper-to-bumper or other, so the brakes can be an additional electrical regeneration.

If the $ 41,000 price tag seems high, considering the amount of new technology and expensive parts on this car, and be reminded that there is a $ 7,500 federal tax rebates available, which dropped the price down to $ 33,500. There is also a federal rebate of $ 2000 on home charging unit. And some states offer refunds or rebates ranging from $ 2000 to $ 5000. Chevrolet Volt offers on rental prices of $ 350 per month, with a limit of 36,000 miles and $ 2,500 advances. While all vehicles carrying normal GM warranty (three years, 36,000 miles), the battery itself took eight years, 100,000 miles warranty.

Audi A8 L W12 Review

The new A8 is a concentrated high-tech package that confirms Audi's claim to technical leadership – “Vorsprung durch TechnikVorsprung durch Technik"Vorsprung durch Technik" is Audi's tagline in Germany. Literally translated, it means "advancement through technology"; however, English cannot fully capture the meaning of "Vorsprung" which means "to leap ahead."Vorsprung durch Technik ”. And now the brand is introducing the top version of its flagship model. The A8 L W12 quattro, with a long wheelbase and a twelve-cylinder engine, sets new standards of luxury, dynamism and efficiency in the top automobile manufacturing league. The Audi A8 L is being launched with a twelve-cylinder engine, but by the end of the year will be available with all the engines currently offered for the A8.

What’s fascinating about the A8 is its supremely powerful presence; its design is clearly derived from the brand’s genes and yet has undergone further refinement. The long wheelbase does not disturb its taut outlines, which remain as athletic as they are elegant.
The A8 L has a body built from aluminum using the Audi Space Frame (ASF) principle and therefore weighing about 40 percent less than a comparable steel body. The ASF body structure is built up from cast elements, extruded sections and sheet aluminum, with integral B-posts made from form-hardened ultra-high strength steel. This body’s tremendous rigidityRigiditySufficiently high static and dynamic body stiffness are prerequisites for many desirable vehicle characteristics.Rigidity is the key to the car’s precise handling, low interior noise levels and high passive safetyPassive SafetyPassive safety refers to all design measures that help protect the car's occupants against injury or help reduce the severity of injuries in the event of an accident. Passive safety measures include the safety belt system, the airbags*, the rigid occupant cell and the crumple zones at the front of the vehicle. Passive Safety for the occupants in the event of an accident.

Among the high-end technologies featured on the A8 model line are the optional LED headlight units (standard on the A8 L W12 quattro) with all lighting functions performed by LEDs. With this bright, high-efficiency light, Audi opens a new chapter in the history of automobile lighting technology.

Subtle visual details distinguish the A8 L W12 quattro from the other cars in this model line. The single-frame radiator grille with integral grid structure has a high-gloss black paint finish and special chromed horizontal bars. There are also chromed inserts of new design in the air inlets, and chromed applications on the exterior mirrors. W12 badges are displayed on the single-frame grille and at the rear of the car. The exhaust system has two trapezoidal-pattern tailpipe trims neatly integrated into the rear bumper.

Abundant space: Rear-seat area

The full extra length of this sedan benefits rear-seat passengers. The back doors are longer, for even more convenient entry, and the space available inside can only be described as opulent. Rear passenger comfort can be enhanced even more if two separate power-adjustable seats are ordered. These can be heated, ventilated and adjusted in a variety of ways: forward and back, seat cushion depth and seat back angle with top section adjustable separately. There is also a fully adjustable lumbar support. The front passenger’s seat can also be moved from the rear if extra space is needed.

Between the individual rear seats that are standard equipment in the Audi A8 L W12 quattro a full-length console can be ordered as an optional extra; it extends back from the center tunnel to the rear shelf, and can be specified with integral items such as a folding table or a refrigerator. Separate controls for the rear air conditioning are also standard. The luxury four-zone automatic air conditioning is controlled by no fewer than 25 adjusting motors.

Another high-end feature of the long-wheelbase Audi A8 is the reclining seat behind the front passenger’s seat. The angle of the seat cushion can also be adjusted. The occupant can be massaged by ten air-filled compartments; four programs can be selected at a remote control. The feet rest on a power-adjustable support at the base of the front passenger seat back. Heating, ventilation and the luxury head restraint are integral features of the reclining seat. A folding table, additional wood and leather trim, a refrigerator and a Rear Seat Entertainment system with two 10.2-inch screens are among the features that promote relaxed travel or alternatively concentrated work in this mobile lounge.

Fine materials: Interior design
The quality of workmanship in the A8 L is simply first-class – from the restrained ambient lighting through the accurately fitted switches with their precise click action. Fascinating aspects of the car’s interior are the slim, clear outlines and the stylish materials with their modern look.

Audi design selection brass beige carefully combines well-matched colors with individual materials and comfort-oriented equipment items. The roof-mounted grab handles and rear console have additional fine wood trim.

Valonea leather is tanned exclusively with plant extracts and is especially soft and able to “breathe” actively. Audi also supplies a loose cushion for rear-seat passengers’ use. Like the head restraintsHead RestraintsBoth in a rear-end impact and during the rebound phase of a frontal crash, the design and position of the head restraints has a substantial influence on occupant head and neck loads.Head Restraints and the selector lever for the eight-speed tiptronic automatic transmission, it is trimmed with buckskin that is exceptionally soft and supple but also hard-wearing.

Another optional extra, the panoramic glass roof, has two glass panels that allow plenty of light to reach the car’s interior. Both sections can be tilted up and the front one also opened extra-wide. Sun blinds are provided for both panels to keep out direct sunlight.

The Audi A8 L W12 quattro: Splendor and efficiency

Twelve cylinders are the ultimate engine configuration, a tradition that still applies in the large luxury car class. The first-generation A8 was available with an engine of this type from 2001 on, and a developed version could be obtained from 2004 on in the following model. Audi’s engineers have now thoroughly revised the W12. Its displacementDisplacementThe total volume of air displaced by all the pistons within an engine block.Displacement has been increased, and gasoline direct injection boosts its output and its efficiency.

The 6.3 FSI engine has an output of 368 kW (500 hp) and delivers its peak torqueTorqueTorque is what causes rotational speed to change. Just as greater net forces cause greater linear accelerations, greater torques cause greater rotational or angular accelerations.Torque of 625 Nm (460.98 lb-ft) at engine speeds at 3,250 rpm. It gives the long-wheelbase Audi A8 the kind of performance normally expected of a sports car: it sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in only 4.9 seconds and effortlessly reaches its governed top speed of 250 km/h (155.34 mph).

A fascinating flow of power is available in every situation, but the fuel consumption too sets new standards: the EU cycle test result is only 12.0 liters per 100 kilometers (19.6 US mpg), a figure well below that of competitors’ cars with V12 engines. The previous 6.0-liter engine, which had a power output of 331 kW (450 hp), recorded a fuel consumption of 13.6 l/100 km (17.3 US mpg) – the difference of 1.6 l/100 km is equivalent to a 12 percent improvement.

The engine is known as the W12 because of its unusual layout: it has four rows of three cylinders with a 15-degree included angle between the two offset rows of cylinders in each broad cylinder block. The V angle between the two blocks is
72 degrees. This layout makes the W12 engine exceptionally compact: only just over 50 centimeters (19.69 in) long and therefore distinctly shorter than a V8. Height and width are both in the region of 70 centimeters (27.56 in).

The W12, in its latest form with a displacement of 6,299 cc, is an undersquare design. Its boreBoreThe inside diameter of a hollow, cylindrical object.Bore and strokeStrokeThe distance a piston moves in its travel from top dead center to bottom dead center. Stroke are 86.0 and 90.4 millimeters (3.39 x 3.56 in) respectively. Compared with the previous version the engineers have enlarged the cylinder bore. The forged crankshaft has a 12-degree angle of crankpin offset, so that the mixture in the 12 cylinders is ignited at the ideal interval of 60 degrees. The engine therefore runs exceptionally smoothly, and the car’s occupants are unlikely to sense any of this supreme power at work unless it is at high engine speeds and severe loads.

The W12 engine weighs only 247 kilograms (545 lb), an impressive value to which the crankcase makes a major contribution. This is a lightweight, high-strength aluminum-silicon alloy casting with a gray cast iron lower cross-member into which the bearing pedestals are embedded. The pistons are forged from a high-strength light alloy and have angled crowns because of their V position in the cylinder blocks.

Each of the W12 engine’s aluminum cylinder heads contains two camshafts; these can be repositioned hydraulically by an amount equivalent to 52 degrees of crankshaft rotation. Altogether, the four camshafts operate 48 valves by way of low-friction roller cam followers, and are themselves driven by chains from an intermediate shaft.

For use in the long-wheelbase A8, Audi’s engineers have converted the W12 engine to FSI gasoline direct injection. This involved considerable modifications to the cylinder heads. Fuel is injected into the combustion chambers at a pressure of up to 130 bar. A high 11.8:1 compression ratioCompression RatioThe ratio of the cylinder and combustion chamber volume when the piston is all the way at the bottom (bottom dead center) to when the piston is all the way up in the cylinder (top dead center).Compression Ratio boosts power output and efficiency. The inlet ports are specially shaped to impart swirl to the incoming airflow and make combustion more efficient.

The W12 engine’s low fuel consumption compared with its competitors is to a large extent due to Audi’s modular efficiency platform. These are used in the entire A8 model line. The crankshaft and timing chains have been intensively optimized to reduce friction, and a recuperation system recovers energy that would otherwise be wasted when the car is braked. The innovative thermal management system shuts down the coolant circuit for a time after the cold engine has been started. This warms up the engine oil more rapidly and shortens the operating period in which friction is still high.

Internal Combustion Engine Systems

Internal combustion engine combustion engines where the fuel (generally, fossil fuels) has occurred with the oxidizer in the combustion chamber. In an internal combustion engine and high temperature expansion of the gas pressure, generated by combustion, directly apply force to move machine components, such as turbine blades or pistons and move distance, yielding useful mechanical energy.

The term usually refers to the internal combustion engine on the engine where combustion intermittent, such as the more familiar four-stroke and two-stroke piston engine, along with variants, such as the Wankel rotary engine. A second class of internal combustion engines use a continuous combustion: gas turbines, jet engines and most rocket engines, each of which is an internal combustion engine on the same principles as described previously.

Internal combustion engine (or ICE) is very different from the external combustion engine, such as steam or Stirling engines, where the energy sent to the working fluid which does not consist of, mixed with or contaminated by combustion products. working fluid can be air, hot water, pressurized water or even liquid sodium, is heated in some type of boiler with fossil fuels, burning wood, nuclear, solar etc.

A large number of different designs for ICES has developed and built, with different strengths and different weaknesses. Backed by solid fuel energy (which is very often gasoline, liquid derived from fossil fuels), ICE provides the ratio of the power-to-weight very well with little or other security weaknesses. Although there are still many applications and stationary, the true power of internal combustion engines in mobile applications and they dominate as power supplies for cars, planes, and boats, from smallest to largest. Only for handheld power tools they share part of the market with a battery-powered devices.

How to Save Fuel

While fuel prices may not fall, you have to find a solution so that your wallet is not too wasteful to use and care of the car. The following tips are worth your refer to:

Actually we can menghemar-free fuel that is by changing driving style. Four years ago (Auto Bild) has proven, just by changing driving style, fuel consumption savings can reach posteriority 25%. If calculated in a year, savings were worth millions of dollars.

So, do not get enough of auto bild put fuel-efficient driving tips like these:
1. Machine heats
Running a car with no heating at all as it wastes fuel because the combustion not ideal. Conversely, heat too long also means throwing fuel wasted. Modern Mobil2 requires only 30 seconds - 1 minute before running.

2. Keeping the engine rev
We all know the engine rev too high a waste of fuel. But do you know, round the same way too low. The ideal, when running normally always place the machine cycle between 2000 - 3500 rpm. This is where there are alloy fuel & power consumption is optimized

3. Engine braking
In the market today, 99% of cars using an electronic injection system. So how is the most appropriate savings made. Get used to perform engine braking when slowing the vehicle. How, out of gas without the gears into neutral first. This will stop the total supply of gasoline to the engine. Different if the transmission put into neutral, gas is still supplied to keep the machine alive.

4. Maintaining a constant speed
Sudden braking and acceleration are always requires large energy. And in the car, the main energy source is fuel. Try driving without stepping on the gas constant or brake suddenly. Gently turn the steering wheel also contributed fuel savings, rather than suddenly swerved to-be to slow down drastically.

5. Use the comparison to assess whether or not the fuel-efficient so you get the most effective type of car fuel.

6. Do not stare at the loud wheels. Make sure your wheels condition good. Wheel assembly does not fit or too contrived to make your car wasteful gasoline.

7. Keep your car cool - but do not burn all the fuel as your car heats up. AC spent fuel, so you should not too often turn on the AC. Cars with exterior and interior has a lighter and lower temperatures would reduce the need for air conditioning which also requires fuel.

8. Keep the speed. Optimal speed for fuel efficiency is 55 miles per hour. When driving on the open road, you must remain at speeds 55 miles per hour.

9. Do not be too burdensome a car - the more weight your car more fuel to be spent. Vehicles SUVs and trucks have larger engines require more fuel. So you better avoid the trunk filled to keep the car load and optimize fuel efficiency.

10. You should travel in groups and taking public transportation whenever possible. If the distance to a closer destination, biking or walking would save fuel and give you the opportunity to enjoy the warm sunshine.

11. Stop spinning! You better send someone to do tasks that are not essential to reduce the amount of your trip.

12. Slow but constant will memenangan race. Driving and braking suddenly disrupt optimal fuel savings.

13. Should increase the speed gradually and stops slowly.

14. Leaving the engine alive when to stop spending more on gasoline than revive. So should you turn off your car engine in a situation like this.

15. Motorists who use a manual transmission should continue to use high gears as they drove quickly to take advantage of gasoline as possible.

16. Rawat and serviskan your car regularly. Worn out spark plugs, brakes are not functioning well, and low transmission fluid can all interfere with the fuel efficiency of cars.

How to Modify Car Audio

New car out of the showroom also has audio.Akan device but for some people, the standard audio system equipment from manufacturers such as single-DIN head unit and four congenital and two-way speakers will suffice. However, for music lovers feel less need to upgrade.

The important thing to note is the selection of products, gadgets and more importantly is your favorite musical genre. The main thing is how the audio devices that can be applied without reducing the comfort of the cabin. Here are tips to improve the standard audio.

Head Unit

Usually the factory berepurasi clearly outlines the product specifications. This will greatly help you choose a good head unit. For sound quality, select the head unit with four-channel sound capability (two rear and two front) of at least 30 watts per channel, plus features RCA outputs which would be very useful if you want to add a crossover or power amplifiers.

This tool as a means of support from the head unit that serves to generate electrical signals converted into sound waves. To determine the quality of the speaker's voice. This is usually the order changes with the addition of split-sound speakers standard exhaust and a few other supporting devices. The function of the mid-tweeters and speakers produce treble sound and vocals and sound effects to explain.

In addition to adding components to compensate for the bass sound quality speakers split circular rhythm, the device is reliable subwoofer. Choose the type of subwoofer is easy to apply in this case the dimensions do not be too big. But the most important aspect of sound quality.

Power Amplifier
If you want to enjoy a song with a thumping bass and clear round, should the addition of one more device, namely the Power Amplifier. Choose which can send voice between 25-40 watts per channel for each channel 4 ohms with a frequency range between 20 Hz - 20 kHz and THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) less than 0.5 percent. With the system channel settings (channel), ie, two channels on the front speakers and two channels for the subwoofer. Another factor to consider is the quality silencers. And most important, though minimalist in appearance, function as well as everyday vehicles, are not disturbed.

A quick guide on shipping your car

You can easily ship your car, if you do a little bit of research. The first thing that you have to do before relocating your car is to find a proper carrier. Decide on the type of service that will fit your needs. If you have limited budget, and want cheap service, then the best thing would to be hire someone to drive your car. If you don’t like this service, you can hire an auto transporter to move your car. Auto transporter provides two types of service – door to door and terminal to terminal. In door to door service, you will meet the truck driver at a nearby parking lot so that they have room to load and unload your car. With terminal to terminal you will often get a discounted rate for dropping off and picking up your car at large auto storing facility. 

After deciding the type of service, you have to choose the type of truck or trailer that you want for moving your car. Enclosed trailers protect your car from various elements like weather etc. They often deliver your car quickly and are the most expensive. It’s the first class of auto shipping. Open trailers are available in two varieties – multi-car trailers and flat bed single car carriers. Multi car trailers are considered cheapest as they can carry three to twelve cars to the same location. Flat beds carry only one car at a time.

Now do a little bit of research on auto transport companies. Investigate each company properly and choose one that is best in terms of price and reliability. In addition, do look at your insurance coverage and that of auto carrier.

2011 Mazda RX-8 The Model Year

According to "well placed sources at Mazda North American Operations: " motor trend RX-8 reported that aging is set to exit stage left in America after model year 2011. Thus, rotary-powered sports car is scheduled to see the guillotine at the same time Europe's inability to meet Euro V emission standards.

There are a number of problems that all manufacturers who have chosen to borrow the design of Felix Wankel rotary engine has to deal with, not a few who have poor fuel efficiency, relatively high emissions and excessive oil consumption. It seems that evil was a long walk together can kill more fun-to-drive rotary-powered models from Mazda.

Mazda does not have much success with the RX-8 in the United States, partly because of problems with early models. nature of their thirst when whipped not endear them to the drivers, especially since most of their power coming in at the top. Harddisk RX-8 hard, and you can expect to see full-size SUVs number of fuel mileage, which is part of the reason that only sell 428 Mazda RX-8 in 2010.

Mazda has not made an official announcement about the RX-8's death or rebirth of the resurrection-7 RX constantly rumored. That said, we will be more than a little surprised if Mazda does not renew its commitment to the engine, high-revving rotary barrel wrapped in a kind of innovative packages.

An all new RX-7 allegedly in the works, rumored for introduction in 2013. This approach may be a pure sports car a better sense for rotary lovers, who see the RX-8 as a compromise in the area too much. Let us hope that the Mazda RX-7 to revive the legendary brand with a worthy successor to the FD series.

New Honda CR-V 2011 Excellent Safety Car

In Indonesia in 2010 showed increased business automakers. A number of producers more incentive to launch a new type and variant to enter the market. So also did not want to miss Honda CR-V with the newest. Although the 2011 Honda CR-V is not expected to vary widely from model 2010, she brings to the table excellent reliability. A 4-cylinder engine 2.4-liter single remains the only option, however, front-wheel drive
and all-wheel drive are both available. In terms of transmission, limited choice - there is only one, 5-speed automatic. For crossover SUV in this class, the CR-V MSRP from $ 25K is a bit high. However, drivers are sure to love 2011 CR-V.

As a crossover SUV, the Honda CR-V has always done exceptionally well. Rated #1 out of 22 affordable compact SUVs according to U.S. News Rankings & Reviews in 2010, the CRV offers excellent safety, affordability and performance. IntelliChoice 5-Year Cost of Ownership rating for the 2010 Honda CR-V is “Excellent” across most of the trim styles available. Riding this wave of exceptional renown and good feelings going into 2011, are any significant changes expected from Honda?

The exterior of the 2011 Honda CR-V will not be significantly changed. The LX, EX, and EX-L models will return as either a front or all-wheel drive variant. The 17-inch wheels that were standard before will remain as well.

The inside of the CRV is very comfortable and functional. Controls are well-placed and nicely designed and the quality of the build is exceptional. Luggage capacity will remain impressive in this class at around 35 cubic feet with the seats up and expanding to more than seventy cubic feet with the rear seats folded down. Full power features are standard on all trim levels as is air conditioning, cruise control, sliding and reclining rear seats, a four-speaker stereo system with CD/MP3 player and auxiliary jack and a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel.

Base models of the 2011 Honda CR-V boast clean designs and pretty good materials quality. By upping the ante and upgrading to the EX-L, though, drivers can enjoy a decidedly decadent all-leather interior. A Special Edition, or SE, trim is expected for the 2011 CR-V and it should add additional exciting features. Space is ample, as is cargo capacity, making the CR-V a natural choice for families on-the-go.

When the power was increased for the 2010 model year for the CR-V reviewers cheered, but were still a bit disappointed at the lack of a V6 engine, which is what most of the competition offers. Honda’s 4-cylinder is capable…barely…but it is what it is and it doesn’t work miracles. The handling is nice and responsive as is the braking system.
