Detriot Auto Show 2012

Domestics show new car, new attitude

DETROIT, Mi.: A notable lack of excess and a re-focusing on smaller, greener, more fuelefficient cars summarized the domestic automakers at this week’s North American International JIM ROBINSON Metroland Auto Show in Detroit. Media Huge trucks and fullCarguide size luxury sedans were Magazine almost non-existent, with compact and mid-sized vehicles taking the forefront, and all because the auto industry is starting to shift its attention to “next-gen” buyers. Nowhere was this more evident than at Chevrolet, which showed the hot, new sub-compact Sonic RS and two compact concepts. Chevrolet will be inviting younger buyers to have their say during the design phase before the concepts become reality in one or two years time. The idea even has a name: co-creation. In their research, Chevrolet found that 54 per cent of buyers 30 and under would

The Lincoln MKZ Concept is a styling study that rides on an all-new midsize platform shared with the Ford Fusion. The sedan is capable of utilizing multiple powertrain options in front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive configurations. Like the recently introduced MKS and MKT with EcoBoost, the Lincoln MKZ Concept features Lincoln Drive Control and the sophisticated Continuously Controlled Damping (CCD) adjustable suspension. Prior to the official opening of NAIAS, Cadillac held the world debut of the ATS sedan that is designed to go head-to-head with BMW 3 Series, Audi A4 and Mercedes C-Class.

Europeans blend power, green and fun in Detroit DETROIT, Mi.: European automakers at this year’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit ran the gamut from green to mean to just plain fun. JIM ROBINSON Volkswagen staged Metroland the world premiere of Media Carguide its “no-compromise” Magazine Jetta Hybrid. It is the fastest hybrid in the compact car class with a 0-60 mph time of 9.0 seconds. Power comes from a 1.4-litre TSI 150 hp gasoline engine and a 20 kW zeroemissions electric motor. Together, these provide fuel consumption that is around 20 per cent better overall than an equivalent gasoline-powered vehicle (54 mpg Imperial). On electric power alone, the Jetta Hybrid can be driven at speeds of up to 70 km/h over a distance of two kilometres (1.3 miles), depending on conditions. In terms of speed, it offers the same power and more torque (184 lb/ft) than the normally aspirated 2.5-litre engine that is commonly used in the Jetta in Canada. VW also took electrification and combined it with a bit of whimsy in the all-electric E-Bugster. The two-seater uses an electric motor that provides 85 kWh of power and sends it from 0-60 mph in 10.9 seconds. Range is said to be at least 110 miles from the 28.3 kWh lithium-ion batteries. It can be fully charged in just 35 minutes thanks to a new Combined Charging System that was developed in co-operation with Audi, BMW, Daimler, Porsche, Ford and General Motors/ Opel.

The all-electric E-Bugster drew a lot of attention in Detroit with 85 kWh of power that allows it to travel at least 110 miles on its 28.3 kWh lithium-ion batteries.

The latest from smart is a pickup – believe it or not. Making its world debut in Detroit, the smart for-us is designed to combine practical loading concept of a pickup to the reality of 21st century urban traffic for the first time. With its exterior dimensions (length/ width/height: 3547/1506/1701 mm) it could almost go unnoticed on the loading area of a typical pickup. Thanks to the state-of-the-art electric drive with a 55 kW magneto-electric motor the zero-emission smart for-us is agile and looks like a blast to drive. Also making its world debut at Detroit was the Porsche 911 Cabriolet. As with the Coupes, the new Cabriolets start with the 911 Carrera, powered by a 350 hp, 3.4-litre sixcylinder engine and the 911 Carrera S

with 400 hp flat engine and 3.8 litre displacement. Mercedes-Benz brought the next generation SL luxury sportscar to Detroit where it was warmly received. The new SL has been produced for the first time almost entirely from aluminum and weighs up to 140 kg less than its predecessor It will be available with two different suspension systems. The SL features semi-active adjustable damping as standard. The optional active suspension system ABC (Active Body Control) is available as an alternative. The new V8 in the SL 500 develops 435 hp from its displacement of 4663 cc. That is 12 per cent more than its predecessor despite some 0.8 litres less displacement. Fuel consumption has been improved by up to 22 per cent.

When it comes to pure luxury and power it’s hard to top the two new Bentley Continental V8 models shown for the first time in Detroit. The new 4.0-litre, twin turbocharged V8 Continental GT coupe and GTC convertible produce 500 hp and 487 lb/ft of torque. Combined with a new close-ratio eight-speed automatic transmission, this translates into a sub-5 second acceleration time for the 0-100 km/h sprint and a top speed of over 290 km/h. A very special Audi Q3 Concept is considered an SUV and is named for winter sports like the runs in the famous Colorado mountain resort which inspired its name. Fitted with 255/45 section off-road tires, the Audi Q3 Vail Concept features a 2.5-litre five-cylinder TFSI engine with direct injection and turbocharging that generates an output of 310 hp. A wonderful Audi touch is the engine’s five cylinders are consecutively numbered with red ‘wrinkled-finish’ paint applied to the cylinder head cover. Making its debut in Detroit, Volvo described the XC60 Plug-in Hybrid Concept as an electric car, a highly economical hybrid and a powerful highperformance car all rolled into one. It allows the driver to decide how the available power from the combination of the high-performance gasoline engine and the electric motor is to be utilized with the touch of a button. The front wheels of the XC60 Plug-in Hybrid Concept are powered by a fourcylinder turbocharged engine from the forthcoming VEA (Volvo Environmental Architecture) engine family. It produces 280 hp and maximum torque of 280 lb/ft. Power to the wheels is through a newly developed eightspeed automatic transmission.

Hyundai makes big splash in Detroit

The Hyundai Elantra was named 2012 North American Car of the Year. The award was presented in Detroit at the 2012 North American International Auto Show.

DETROIT, Mi.: Hyundai made waves right off the bat at the 2012 North American International Auto Show as its Elantra midsize sedan was named 2012 North LORNE DRURY American Car of the Metroland Media Year.

Hyundai didn’t let any grass grow under its feet though with launches of the 2013 Veloster Turbo and 2013 Genesis Coupe at the show. Although it won the Best New Performance Car under $50K category in the Automotive Journalists Association of Canada 2012 Canadian Car of the Year Awards, the sporty Veloster clearly needs a bit more power to make it truly a memorable performer. Hyundai addressed this with the world debut of the Veloster Turbo, boasting 201 hp, sport tuned engine, exhaust note and steering and a unique front fascia, fog lights and ground

effects. Hyundai revealed the significantly redesigned rear-drive Genesis sport coupe. With a more aggressive design, more powerful powertrain and upscale interior refinement, the Genesis Coupe will be offered with a new eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters that promises improved fuel economy.

DETROIT, Mi.: There may not be as many world premiers at the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit as there would have been five years ago, but the LORNE DRURY enthusiasm of the Metroland Media manufacturers this Carguide year is undeniable. Magazine For the past few years, presenters here tried to put on a brave face, but it was evident that the entire industry was suffering during the economic downturn and the subdued atmosphere at the Detroit show was a hint of what was ahead in the coming year. This year however, things are different, for both the domestic manufacturers and Japanese firms

like Honda/Acura and Toyota/Lexus, who suffered through a difficult year in 2011 after the earthquake in Japan devastated the industry at home and abroad. Supply problems appear to be under control now and these Japanese firms are coming back stronger than ever. Acura, for example, has suffered in recent years with a lack of new product, but this year it has three reveals at the Detroit show. Meanwhile, Toyota used the Detroit show to present the newest entry in the Prius family, the Prius c hatchback, while Scion debuted the FR-S compact sports coupe and Lexus revealed its striking LF-LC premium concept coupe. The Acura NSX concept promises to put excitement back into the Acura brand that has been missing since this halo model supercar was discontinued

Acura is bringing back its halo car—the NSX sports coupe— within three years and this time around it will be built in the USA.

Acura executives announced this shortly after members of the international press corps got their first look at the concept that demonstrates the direction the new NSX will take when it comes to the retail market, within the next three years. The new NSX will make use of lightweight materials and feature a mid-mounted V6 engine and Acura’s new Sport Hybrid SHAWD (Super Handling All Wheel Drive) hybrid system. This will feature a unique two electric motor drive unit that can instantly generate negative or positive torque to the front wheels during cornering. The fifth and final entry in the expanded Prius family, the 2012 Prius c (the c represents city in the Prius lineup) will come to market this year and bring Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive to the subcompact segment. This urban-friendly five-door hatchback is expected to have a combined fuel consumption rating of 3.7L/100km, the lowest rating of any vehicle without a plug. It will be offered in three trim levels Toyota’s Scion division showed its 2013 FR-S sports car, developed in conjunction with Subaru.

DETROIT japanese Continued from Pg. B4

a premium sports coupe could be. Inside, the concept has a driverfocused cockpit and lots of advanced technology features like twin 12.3-inch LCD screens. Inputs come from a pop-up touchscreen keyboard that allows the driver to operate the controls comfortably without shifting position or altering sight lines. Toyota’s vision of what things might look like in 2015, the NS4 Advanced Plus-In Hybrid targets a next generation Hybrid Synergy Drive plug-in system. A mid-size sedan, the NS4 takes a new and futuristic styling direction for Toyota, while the cabin boasts a whack of new technological features as vehicles increasingly become another communications hub for connected consumers. The NS4 also includes many new advanced safety features like a nextgeneration pre-collision system. Four new glass technologies are also used on this concept as well as cameras that replace inner and outer rearview mirrors.

This advanced plug-in hybrid hints at what transportation in 2015 might look like for Toyota.

Although a concept, the ILX Concept

is a precursor to an all-new Acura luxury compact sedan launching this spring. It will be the entry-level vehicle into the luxury brand and will likely feature three different powertrains, including Acura’s first ever gas-electric hybrid. Standard will be a 2.0-litre inline fourcylinder engine.

The second generation of Acura’s RDX five-passenger crossover will feature a new engine, transmission and a new allwheel drive system.

The Acura RDX Prototype is a prototype version of the 2013 RDX, the second generation of Acura’s fivepassenger crossover SUV that will feature a new engine, transmission and all-wheel drive system. Standard will be a 3.5-litre V6 engine producing 273 hp, a jump of 33 over the outgoing model. Acura promises the best fuel economy of any gasoline-powered luxury SUV in its class. Featuring a sixspeed automatic transmission, the RDX also gets a new lighter-weight all-wheel drive system. The ninth-generation Accord will debut this fall and Honda gives us an idea of what it might look like with the Honda Accord Concept Coupe unveiled

The ninth generation of the perennial bestselling Accord will debut this fall and the Accord Coupe Concept hints at what the production version of the coupe will look like.

in Detroit. The Accord Concept refines the current look in an attractive exterior package. More powertrains will be offered including a plug-in hybrid model in addition to the four- and six-cylinder gasoline versions. Making its world debut here, the Nissan e-NV200 Concept is an advanced electric vehicle that previews a nearfuture production version of Nissan’s multi-use NV200. The battery capacity of this zeroemissions vehicle will support a driving range similar to the Nissan LEAF, but the load capacity makes it viable for business use. The Nissan Pathfinder concept gives a preview of the next generation Nissan Pathfinder SUV. Set to go on sale this fall, the Pathfinder Concept hints at a sleeker, sexier look for the popular SUV that has been on the market since 1986 and sold more than 1.2 million units. It features three-row, seven-passenger seating and a refined V6 engine that Nissan says will deliver a 25 per cent improvement in combined city/highway fuel economy, while maintaining a towing capacity near the top of the segment.

Keg sponsors Late Model Driver Challenge at Speedway The Late Model Division at Western Speedway is taking on a new look in 2012 with the announcement that The Keg Restaurants are sponsoring the series. The Keg Late Model Drivers Challenge will feature four race nights, each with twin 50-lap features, for a total of eight races to crown the Series Champion. No club or membership fees are required. Spearheaded by Bill Smith Jr., Steve Copp and Daryl Crocker, the new series will take the Late Model Division to the next level and bring the best Late Model drivers from the Island and Mainland to Western Speedway to battle for the championship. Highlighting the season will be a $10,000 points fund to be paid out at the end of the year. Other posted awards include $100 fast time award per night from Custom Pro Drywall, $50 per Heat Race Winner from LD Race Cars, $100 Hard Charger Award per night from Steve Copp Construction and one New Tire per race draw from OK Tires Ltd in Saanichton. Race dates are May 12; June 16; July 7; and Aug.11. Car and tire rules will be out by the end of January.

Three Point showcases smart electric through January Jennifer Blyth Black Press

Drivers waiting to get a look at the brand new smart fortwo electric can get more than a glimpse this month. Through the end of January, drivers can visit Three Point Motors to arrange a test drive of the sporty little vehicle that’s turning heads and sparking significant interest, says Three Point’s Adam Pedersen. The car is expected to be on the lot for sale around late-September, so for those considering a new car purchase this year – especially if they’re considering an electric – this allows them the opportunity for a test drive. Unlike some of the current electric vehicles on the market, the smart electric can be charged with a normal 110V outlet. To drive 50 km per day, the battery can be charged in about three hours, however on a full charge, the smart will cover about 140 kilometres. Faster charging is possible with a “wallbox” – a quick-charging station that homeowners can fit their your garage. No slouch in the get-up-and-go department, smart fortwo electric offers plenty of jump with acceleration of 0-60 in less than six seconds and 0-100 km/h in less than 13 seconds. The maximum speed is 120 km/h. For more details or to book your January test drive, call Three Point Motors at 250-385-6737

CARS

Winter Warrior You don’t have to be a superhero to clean off the ice – and here in Victoria, the occasional snowflake – from your car. This collapsible double-blade ice scraper enables drivers to scrape with less strain and more force using both forward and backward motions, according to manufacturers, Quirky. The front handle keeps the snow

off your hands and gloves and the extendable, telescoping arm allows for better reach. Finally, you can flip Thor over and use the brush to sweep off snow and frost. When done, Thor fits comfortably under your car seat and sells for (US) $19.99 at Quirky.com.

Hyundai plans Geneva concept Metroland Media Carguide Magazine

Hyundai has given a first glimpse of its new i-oniq concept car, which will preview the next evolution of the brand’s “fluidic sculpture” form language. “Two strong arched curves define the silhouette of i-oniq, creating a playful contrast between the sharp character

lines and soft but muscular features,” Hyundai’s European Chief Designer Thomas Burkle said in describing the i-oniq. The i-oniq concept was designed and developed at the company’s European R&D centre in Russelsheim, Germany.   More information about i-oniq will be revealed ahead of its world premiere at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.

Meet the Chrysler 200 Super S by Mopar Metroland Media Carguide Magazine

Chrysler Mopar brand 200 Super S will debut at next week’s auto show in Detroit.

Chrysler’s Mopar brand has set its sights on the 2012 Chrysler 200. The Chrysler 200 Super S by Mopar is a rolling showcase for the latest Mopar exterior parts that will be available for the 200 sedan in 2012. The Chrysler 200 Super S by Mopar will debut at the 2012 North American International Auto Show. For Stage One, Mopar’s long list of modifications starts at

the front of the car with a large chin spoiler, satin chrome fog light trim, satin chrome grille surround and mesh in the upper and lower grilles. The upper grille is gloss black with a recessed Chrysler wing badge. Body sides feature new side sills, satin chrome belt molding, black chrome “200” badges and gray or hyper black 18-inch “S” alloy wheels. From the rear view, the new look is capped off by a new trunk lid spoiler, satin chrome light bar and a matte black lower diffuser

with attached exhaust openings. Stage Two adds performance with a coil-over suspension, which also lowers the center of gravity for the vehicle. In addition, Stage Two includes a cold-air intake and cat-back exhaust. This Mopar package on the Chrysler 200 Super S will be available on Chrysler 200S later in 2012. Mopar’s Chrysler 200 Super S will be one of many Moparmodified vehicles that will debut during the 2012 auto show season.

Volvo leads luxury brands in 2012 IIHS Top Safety Picks Five Volvo models have been recognized by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Metroland Media Carguide Magazine

Volvo leadership in car safety has been confirmed in the U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s 2012 Top Safety Pick awards. Five Volvo models were named 2012 Top Safety Pick winners, a total unsurpassed by any other luxury car brand. Top Safety Pick winners announced this morning included the

Volvo C30, S60, S80, XC60 and XC90. The award recognizes vehicles that do the best job of protecting occupants involved in four collision scenario results, including front, side, rollover, and rear crashes. Frontal crashworthiness evaluations are based on results of 40 mph (64 km/h) frontal offset crash tests. Side evaluations are based on performance in a crash test in which the side of a vehicle is struck by a barrier

moving at 31 mph (50 km/h). The barrier represents the front end of a pickup or SUV. To earn a good rating for rollover protection, the car roof must withstand a force of four times the vehicle’s weight

before reaching five inches of crush. Rear crash protection is rated using a dummy that measures forces on the neck. This test simulates a collision in which a stationary vehicle is struck in the rear at 20 mph (32 km/h).
