MPS hatch proves a thunder-Bolt by MIKE TORPEY

DIESEL DREAM: The powerplant is key to the success of Mazda’s new CX-7 model

Cool crossover has CX-factor

I

T’S easy enough to appreciate why Mazda’s CX-7 sports crossover was a big hit in the States and an almighty flop this side of the pond. The sole engine available over the car’s two-year lifespan was a 2.3-litre turbocharged belter – only problem being it was a thirsty petrol unit capable of returning around 23 miles to the gallon on a good day. But from this week the Japanese company has entered a completely new ball game with a diesel-powered CX-7 that’s armed and loaded with cool styling, extra kit and loads of practicality. Once again there’s just one model – now called the Sport Tech Diesel – with an imposing road presence and price of £25,785. The powerplant is key to this model’s impact on the competitive 4x4 scene and the promise of an average 37.7mpg will win over plenty of new custom, though the CO2 figure of 199g/km remains high. It certainly has some attitude too, with a sharp new set of clothes that includes blown-up wheel arches, larger air scoops, rear spoiler and a gaping front grille. While the CX-7 boasts four-wheel drive, off-road ability is not the priority. As a

by MIKE TORPEY Motoring Editor result the car’s Active Torque system - which automatically shifts power between the front and rear axles – is set up to improve tarmac handling. This it achieves with lots of panache. On a 120-mile route through north and mid Wales the car felt extremely agile, stable at speed, positive through fast bends and provided a great sense of control from behind the wheel. Performance remains a strongpoint, the 173PS

oil-burner capable of hitting 62mph in 11.3 seconds and topping out at 124mph while a slick six-speed manual gearbox makes for easy cruising. The big Mazda is a striking looker both inside and out, decent rear space meaning three can travel comfortably for a long distance in the back. Carrying capacity is also outstanding and there’s the option of increasing the area considerably thanks to Mazda’s ‘Karakuri’ arrangement which drops the rear seats to form a flat floor at the flick of a lever. Like its predecessor, the new CX-7 has just one, high spec,

trim grade that includes leather seats, air-con, cruise control, electric windows, powered and heated front seats plus a BOSE premium sound system with 6-CD autochanger. There’s also integrated sat-nav and Bluetooth while metallic paint at £450 is one of very few extra cost options. Given its slick styling, sporty dynamics and upgraded safety technologies like the Emergency Stop Signalling, which activates the hazard warning lights under heavy braking, and the new Rear Vehicle Monitoring system, the CX-7 is a car with great appeal.

TOUCH OF CLASS: Side view of the new Mazda CX-7 diesel model

WORLD 100 metres record holder Usain Bolt is a man who always seems to have something left in the tank. The Jamaican doesn’t merely blow the opposition away, he does it with such casual authority that you wonder where his limit really lies. Motor manufacturer Mazda stop short of name-checking the fastest man alive but admit that their latest hot hatch has deliberately been styled to create the athletic look of a sprinter. If the previous Mazda3 MPS - which stands for Mazda Performance Series – was a car of serious appeal then the all-new model is more of a lean, mean machine with its elegant rather than aggressive lines. It has just gone on sale at £21,500 and will provide stern opposition to the likes of the Ford Focus RS, SEAT Leon Cupra and Volkswagen Golf GTI. The MPS is powered by a 2.3-litre turbocharged petrol engine developing a rip-roaring 260bhp and capable of blasting the model to 60mph in 6.1 seconds and on to a restricted 155mph. A specially selected test strip helped emphasise some of the innovations that make this car special.

SPEED DEMON: The new Mazda3 MPS Despite all that force going through the front wheels, Mazda’s engineers have stiffened the bodyshell and modified the suspension to ensure terrific stability and lack of any torque steer. The power delivery is smooth and acceleration instant while the confidence transmitted via the six-speed manual gearshift and positive steering makes this a real driver’s car. And higher gearing along with weight-reducing Gram Strategy, whereby the prototypes even had tiny strips shaved off the wing mirrors, have helped reduce emissions. The CO2 figure is only down by 3 per cent but it’s lower nonetheless and also ensures the new model meets stricter Euro 5 emissions standards. As for styling, the MPS features a muscular bonnet air intake, flared side sills, new grille, special front wings and roof spoiler – adding 20mms to the length of the Sport model. The cabin looks racy with body-hugging part-leather seats with red MPS graphics, alloy pedals, a turbo boost gauge between the rev counter and speedo plus red stitching on the steering wheel, gearshift and handbrake. On the practical side there’s room for three in the back and a decent size boot, while a high level of overall spec includes a 10-speaker BOSE sound system with steering wheel-mounted controls. Safety being paramount on a car of such high performance, there’s an arsenal of technologies like traction and dynamic stability control, emergency stop signalling that activates the hazard warning lights under heavy braking and a lane-changing aid that uses wide angle radar to warn of an approaching vehicle from behind. Impressive stuff on an impressive car – it’s a sophisticated super hatch that looks the part too.

Motors FLIGHTY: The new Mercedes SLS AMG gullwing supercar

Gull power

A

GULLWING supercar is back in the Mercedes stable some 50 years after the original became a living legend. The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is every bit a modern reincarnation of the famous 300 SL first created in 1954. The iconic SL – which spawned racing machines driven by some of the greats including Moss and Fangio – is now one of the most sought

by CHRIS RUSSON after cars in the world. Only 1,400 were made and those that remain command prices in the region of £250,000 at auction. The 197mph SLS is a relative snip at £150,000 and will ply its trade against the likes of the Audi R8, the Aston Martin DBS and the Ferrari California. Little surprise then that Mercedes chose the west

coast of America to launch its new creation at the Laguna Seca raceway near Monterrey. The circuit, complete with the famous Corkscrew opposite camber downhill S-bend, is one of the most demanding and proved the SLS AMG will be one of the greats of modern motoring. Until now AMG has been known for its high performance engines and is Mercedes’ in-house tuning company producing

thoroughbred sports cars out of everyday models such as the latest C63 and E63 saloons. The SLS uses the same 6.3-litre V8 engine which at 571 horsepower is the most potent normally aspirated engine in the world. But the SLS is a pure AMG creation – the first car it has designed from the ground up – and it’s an absolute thriller. An all aluminium construction, with the exception of the windscreen pillars which are steel for safety reasons, the SLS weighs in at just 1.6 tons.

It has super quick acceleration – 0 to 60mph in 3.8 seconds and can hit 125mph just eight seconds later.

The 197mph maximum is electronically limited so the SLS does not encroach on the 200-plus mph territory of the SLR supercar developed by Mercedes and McLaren. The thunder from the exhausts as the SLS goes about its business will enthral any petrol head while inside the cockpit is made with precision in mind. It’s a blend of luxury and functionality with carbon fibre trim and leather upholstery while the instrument panel is simply laid out but fully kitted to include sat nav and even a 1,000 watt Bang & Olufsen sound system. To the side of the driver is a bank of buttons to vary the suspension and traction control settings for performance work. Various

configurations can be stored electronically to be re-engaged as required and there’s even launch control for maximum take off power. That’s for track work – as realistically is the optional sports suspension and carbon ceramic brakes – but underlines the awesome abilities of the SLS. Paddle shifters are fitted for manual operation of the seven speed auto box and a bank of LEDs flash from white to yellow to red to prompt the rapid fire gear changes, complete with automatic double declutch. The car is beautifully balanced – weight distribution is 47/53 front to rear with a low centre of gravity – while it is incredibly nimble and agile despite its blistering straight-line acceleration. Away from the track and on the open road the SLS is easy to keep in check. Touring it can average a claimed 18.8mpg and for such a performance car the CO2 emissions of 308g/km are cleaner than many of its peers. This is technical excellence on a grand scale and much has been taken from current racing technology. The SLS has a carbon fibre drive shaft as used in the Mercedes DTM cars while the suspension geometry is from Formula One. A rear spoiler pops up at motorway speeds with a rear diffuser and smooth underside helping aerodynamics.

AMG’s masterstroke has been to house all the technology in a wonderfully retro shaped body. The long snout and rearward cockpit are pure flashback to the original gullwing as are the side vents in the wings. Sharp lines at the front of the SLS are smoothed out at the back which is set off with LED lamp clusters.

If there is a compromise then it’s the 176 litre boot – smaller than a supermini – and a lack of storage places inside. There may be a centre console and door pockets but there’s no room for anything of size – even a jacket.

Shorter drivers – and that’s anyone under 5ft 8ins – will have to get used to grabbing the doors on the way in to lower them as once seated they will be out of reach. Electric closing was dismissed to save weight. The sill may be high but it’s easy to get in and when parked the doors need some 15 inches clearance to open – less than a conventional side opening door. When open the gullwing doors rise to 1.7metres which will fit the average garage or multi-storey car park. Exotica and high performance may abound with this car but there had to be some practical touches. It’s on sale next summer and with no production limit Mercedes is out to cater for a very special breed of motoring enthusiast with a very special car.

Renault Clio 1.5 D Dynamique dCi 86

A new dawn for Clio

GREEN GODDESS: The new Renaul Clio dCi 86 can achieve fuel consumption levels close to those of a hybrid model

T

HE equation is, mercifully, a simple enough one to understand: Economical + Ecological = eco2. As motor manufacturers continue to embrace green technology, some are considerably further down the line than others. Renault, for instance, now has no less than 107 models falling into their environmentally friendly eco2 category – and 30 of them belch out less than 120g/km of noxious gases. Among those is the new Clio dCi 86 which can achieve fuel consumption levels close to those of a hybrid model, but at a far more affordable price, plus road tax of just £35 a year. The facelifted Clio, available since early summer, sees a new dawn for the French car maker as it further refines a model that has been around for almost 20 years.

road

TEST

with MIKE TORPEY

Renault has shifted 10 million during those two decades, scooping various awards along the way and Clio was the first to earn a maximum five-star safety rating. To keep things fresh, there’s a new more streamlined exterior design based on the larger Megane model with contoured headlamps, deeply recessed foglamps and new alloy wheel designs. The Clio is one of the most comfortable cars in its class anyway

and now has a more user-friendly interior layout to go with the space to accommodate a couple of six-foot passengers, and three at a push, in the back. While four petrol engines are available it’s the oil-burners that take the biscuit – in fact so far as diesel superminis go the Clio dCi 86 is hard to beat. Despite having less power than the Clio’s other 1.5 oil-burner, which produces 106bhp, it remains a strong unit - smooth, quiet and quite spirited with punchy performance from low engine speeds and the promise of 64 miles per gallon. It’s a lovely feeling to complete a 200-mile trip and find the needle still hovering around the threequarter full mark. Most popular among the seven trim levels is the mid-range

Safety being put at risk by under-inflated tyres warns Michelin ONLY one third of the cars on British roads are being driven with correctly inflated tyres, claims Michelin. The rest are being used with pressures so low that road safety is being put at risk. Company staff were amazed to find that survey results revealed 36% of motorists use tyres so under-inflated that they are classified as dangerous or very dangerous – and shocked to

discover that 6% of cars are being used even they though they have punctures. The alarming results emerged after the tyre firm checked thousands of cars in a ‘fill up with air’ campaign staged over three months in 24 cities. “Our findings show a deterioration compared with checks that were carried out last year, when UK motorists ranked among the worst for tyre safety

in Europe," said spokesman Peter Selling. “We think this could well be due in part to the economic climate as drivers try to make savings wherever they can. “But overlooking the condition of tyres is a false economy. Tyres that are incorrectly inflated, bald or damaged are dangerous. “They can lead to fatal crashes and lives must not be

sacrificed for the sake of saving a few pounds.” “And the fact that under-inflated tyres need more fuel to overcome increased rolling resistance means drivers who fail to make regular checks end up paying more. “With fuel prices hurting everyone and the overall cost of motoring rising, it makes so much sense to regularly attend to the simple task of checking

the pressures once each month,” he added. Meanwhile, the cost of running a car has risen by more than 11% over the past two years. Finance company statisticians reckon annual running costs now add up to £2,338 – up from an estimated £2,277 last year. The most significant increase has been for car insurance – up almost 13% from 2008.
