It is now widely known that Volkswagen made a buzz by unveiling the new Up! minicar at the Frankfurt Motor Show from this year. On the other hand, few of us knew that the manufacturer was also working, in the same time, to produce a Skoda version of the Up!: this is the Skoda Citigo! The car is expected to be unveiled by the end of this year, while in the UK and the rest of European countries, fans and drivers will clearly be forced to wait until 2012. The car will be available on two models, in three-door and five-door versions and powered by two new, three-cylinder 1.0-litre petrol engines delivering 44kW/60PS and 55kW/75PS.
Lately we have all read and discussed a lot about the 2012 Chevrolet Sonic and are excited to know more about it. What it is for sure is that this model is absolutely unique and has nothing in common with the previous model from Chevrolet. The Chevrolet product marketing director, Margaret Brooks, sustained that this new car has its characteristics and unique features having “all-new architecture, all-new powertrain, all-new name.” According to Chevrolet, the word that defines our Chevrolet Sonic is definitely “Refinement”. The vehicle line director and chief engineer, Joaquin Nuno-Whelan,, sustained that the company set it to have the “right stiffness” so that the driver will have a “solid, quiet feel” as the car goes down the street. So, it is quite clear that the manufacturer designed the car in order to satisfy all the needs a driver may have.
It is widely known that BMW launched a new car model, the all-new 2012 M5.A high-revving 4.4-litre V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo package and delivers 560 hp at 6,000 – 7,000 rpm as well as a maximum torque of 680 Newton metres (502 lb-ft) from 1,500 rpm. With these numbers, the new Bmw M5 is able to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.4 seconds, 200 km/h (124 mph) in 13.0 seconds and has a top speed electronically limited to 250 km/h or 155 mph. These are the main power characteristics that are going to steal your mind and determine you to buy one for yourself immediately. An increased top speed to an impressive 305 km/h or 190 mph can also be chosen by picking the premium package, the M Driver’s Package.
We must happily admit that this year edition of the Frankfurt Motor Show was full of surprises and good news. For instance, the unveiling of the new Land Rover DC100 Sport that amazed many of us. This model is one of the two concepts Land Rover manufacturer declared to be ready until 2015 and we could easily conclude that at least this one is going to have more and more buyers. The feedback concerning the two models was totally positive and it is definitely going to have a huge impact.
