MOTOR cycle, moped and scooter registrations in the UK last month were 10% down on March last year, according to the latest figures issued by the Motor Cycle Industry Association. A total of 16,754 powered two-wheelers were registered in March 2009, which is a fall of 1,870 on March last year. Naked bikes have done particularly well, with 1.5% more registrations this year than last. Highest registered model overall was the Kawasaki ZX10 R Ninja, with Honda the leading manufacturer.

THE ● European Parliament has

agreed to make ESP mandatory for all new vehicles. According to the regulation, from November 2011 all new passenger-car and commercial vehicles models registered in the European Union will have to be equipped with the ESP active safety system. From November 2014 this will apply to all new vehicles. Accident research has shown that skidding is the main cause of fatal accidents.

Z-STAR: The new Nissan 370Z is a car for the enthusiast as well as the purist

More zip is making the 370Z really sing

A

N icon among Japanese sports cars is blasting back with more power and sharper

handling. Nissan Z cars have become legend and the latest 370Z is about to deliver in no uncertain terms. On sale in July and priced from £26,895 it is a car for the enthusiast as much as the purist. As performance coupes go the 370Z is almost as correct as a Porsche. Handling has always been a strong point for Nissan and the 370Z is true to form – delightfully balanced and responsive. It also has a few tricks up

by CHRIS RUSSON its sleeve such as an electronic rev control which enables a driver to change down more accurately than a Grand Prix racer – and that’s on the six speed manual. A seven-speed auto complete with rapid-fire paddle shifters and a delightful throttle blip when downshifting is also available priced from £31,895. Powered by a 3.7-litre V6 engine delivering 330bhp the 370Z outstrips the 350Z it replaces in every department. At 5.4 seconds for 0-60 it’s certainly quick while emissions are down to 249g/km with average mpg of 26.9.

The auto is even cleaner thanks to its clever electronic engine management at 247g/km – that’s an 11% improvement over the previous Z machine. The new model definitely looks the part with aggressive but flowing lines and a beautiful profile with the roof peaking at the top of the windscreen. Compared to the 350Z the wheelbase is shorter by some four inches, improving stability, while some 2.5 inches have been chopped off the overall length. Nevertheless, inside there’s more storage space behind the front seats and 235 litres of room under the tailgate, which now incorporates a

retractable luggage blind. The body is stiffer by 30% but also much lighter – all adding to its potential on the road, and the cockpit is a proper sports car – two seats with all the controls wrapping around the driver. Instrumentation is similar to that on the 350Z which in turn had strong links to the Z cars of old. And the whole package has a high tech feel especially when sat nav is fitted – which is a £1,450 option. Leather upholstery and fine trim make the cockpit decidedly posh while still retaining the necessary workmanlike feel a good sports car should possess. The 370Z is based on a

platform from Nissan’s luxury Infiniti brand and also features that marque’s scratch resistant paint as well as powerful Bose sound systems. With near perfect weight distribution – it is set up 53/47 to the front – the 370Z can jink through bends with astonishing precision. Let it loose and there is a wonderful sound. Electronic stability and a limited slip differential are standard and so are beefy brakes delivering a 60-0mph stopping distance of less than 40 yards. As real sports cars go this is impressive kit and true to the lineage of Nissan’s Z models which have now clocked up 1.7 million sales across the globe.

long term roadtest

Jaguar X-Type 2.2 Diesel Estate Sovereign auto

X hits right spot

THE Liverpool-built Jaguar X-Type Estate is one of the most attractive looking load luggers on the road – and we took one on an extended road test. Here’s how it fared.

T

ALK about a baptism of fire. Our elegant-looking Jaguar X-Type Estate model had been with us less than 24 hours when it was put into the most demanding of pack horse duty. Every time I declared the boot full to bursting, the same reply followed: “I’m sure we can squeeze in a few more bits”. Then just when the camel’s back was surely about to give way a bike rack was strapped to the rear and a gleaming racer attached to it. I didn’t expect to reach the end of the road, let alone complete a hike to a Scottish bedsit via a stop-off in

the North East. It’s testament to the abilities of this Liverpool-built load lugger that it at no point felt overburdened or excessively heavy to drive, though to be fair I wasn’t exactly throwing it around corners. And as each item – guitar, golf clubs, bedside lamp, crockery, clothing and countless other paraphernalia – was unloaded it was difficult to believe where it had all been stashed. The return journey saw the X-Type, a 2.2-litre diesel, in a completely different light – minus 70% of the outgoing weight. Dynamically this is a car that doesn’t disappoint. There’s a well balanced, reassuring feel – even in torrential rain – a positive response from the steering and strong acceleration for safe overtaking.

Thankfully we were relying on diesel power – and in this 2.2-litre oil burner the average fuel return varied between 35 (fully laden) and 49 (with two passengers and no extras) miles per gallon. The latest generation X-Type was launched last summer with almost 500 new components and fresh design that includes sharper lines and a more purposeful stance on the road to a greater choice of trim and equipment. The most significant visually is that 3-D mesh grille featuring Jaguar’s trademark ‘growler’ badge. More important though is the combination of diesel power with automatic transmission, something previously missing from the X-Type line-up but offered by most of its principal rivals. It pairs the 2.2-litre oil-burner with a six-speed auto transmission incorporating Jaguar’s sequential shift manual system. Move to this mode and a sports setting is automatically selected which gives more dynamic and involving shifts – with the bonus of one-touch up or down gear change. There are two diesels on offer but the tested 152bhp 2.2-litre model

speccheck MAKE: Jaguar MODEL X-Type 2.2 Estate ENGINE: 2,198cc 4-cylinder diesel POWER: 152bhp PERFORMANCE: 0-62 in 10.3 secs, top speed 125mph ECONOMY: 41mpg Combined CO2 EMISSIONS: 184g/km BiK RATING: 26% makes far more appeal than the entry level 2.0 D with its strength, smoothness and near silence. Though the X-Type is billed as a five-seater you wouldn’t want to travel too far in the centre rear position which is okay for a child but cramped for adults, otherwise comfort is guaranteed. Anyone opting for the estate can rest assured that there’s excellent load space, rear seats that split and fold 70/30 plus tailgate glass that opens independently. The tested model was in top grade Sovereign trim as opposed to S, SE or Sport Premium, but all include cruise control, auto headlamps, heated exterior mirrors,

rain-sensing wipers, dynamic stability control, 17-inch alloys and leather 4-spoke steering wheel. And on all bar entry level there’s satellite navigation, DAB radio, TV tuner and an iPod connector while many of the most frequently used controls can be accessed via the 7-inch colour touch screen. It is testament to the build and reliability of this car that during 6,000 miles of varied work the car suffered not so much as a hiccup while its ivory leather interior survived a relentless battering from kids. They have certainly done a fine job with this car – I’d have it back tomorrow.

driver deals

KIA is aiming to cash-in on the driving school market this summer with special deals on its smaller models. From this month there are already discounts on Picanto, Rio, cee’d and pro_cee’d models and now there is also free insurance, a discount fuel card,

free bumper mouldings and free dual controls for driving schools. The Picanto has been updated to make it more economical and now has low enough emissions to put it in tax band B. It has also had changes to the front bumper, bonnet, front wings and headlamps while the

interior has been updated. The Picanto’s driving school offer means £250 off, free insurance, free bumper mouldings and a discount fuel card. The larger Rio supermini now costs from £6,995 with a choice of 1.4-litre petrol and 1.5-litre

Ford turns heat up on hot hatch by JOHN CONNOR

SPEEDY: The new Ford Focus RS model

D

REAMING of life in the fast lane? Well for £24,740 you can turn that dream into reality courtesy of Ford's 163mph Focus RS. It seems unbelievable, but six years have passed since the RS Mk1 finished its limited production run. During that period automotive engineering has moved on, and this latest hot hatch to bear the world famous Blue oval badge is definitely light years ahead of previous incarnations. At the forefront of cutting edge technology, the compact RS with its race-bred pedigree is aiming to tempt a new generation of performance car enthusiasts. The direct product of Ford Team RS, the car, whilst honed to sporting perfection is still a responsible road vehicle from its low profile, wide alloys to its twin split rear spoiler. On a route encompassing a mixture of motorway, dual carriageway and rural lanes, the car was faultless in its acceleration, its cornering and its braking. There is no doubt this is a drivers' car by the way it reacts to commands. If you are a lover of firm suspensions, road hugging rides, instant response and awesome acceleration, then this is the car for you. Its superb turbo charged Duratec RS 2.5-litre engine, which can whisk you from zero to 62mph in 5.9 seconds, also creates a peak power of 300 bhp

at 6,500 rpm. To some this engine may appear to share its fundamental structure with that of Focus ST, but it doesn't. Ford says: "There was never any intention to 'chip' the ST engine. We evaluated several approaches using the ST and none gave us the combination of power delivery, character and durability that we wanted, so we opted to create an RS Duratec, using the ST unit as our base." And boy has it worked. It boasts increased power and torque without affecting durability. However, the most obvious changes is the larger Borg Warner K16 turbo which offers a maximum steady state boost pressure of 1.4 bar - double that of Focus ST's 0.7 bar - to generate the car's 35%t power increase. I am not going to go

into more technical detail, those with engineering knowledge will understand, those without it, should test the car for themselves. During initial product design meetings the RS team considered producing an all wheel drive model, but eventually discarded that option, and came up instead with a wider track, and RevoKnuckle, a suspension system that under development at Ford's Research & Advanced Engineering centre in Germany. This innovative system was identified as offering significant benefit to a new front-wheel-drive RS concept. In short it meant that Ford was able to do what was thought impossible, to develop a 300 bhp, front-wheel-drive car that is not only driveable every day, but is

faster in many situations than all-wheel-drive performance cars. Inside and out the RS has been designed to satisfy performance car enthusiasts, and it reflects current customer tastes. Even the 38-year-old RS badge has been restyled. The body is available in green, blue or white, all special colours just for the RS. The roomy interior is comfy, quiet and sporty. The boot is spacious and because this is a hatchback, it can accommodate the same amount of luggage as the rest of the Focus family. But there the similarity ends. "It is the fastest European Ford production car ever, the most powerful RS and probably the most powerful front-wheel-drive car on sale today. It is something special," says Ford.
