To the UK, that is…
The Nissan Murano has been on sale in the UK since 2004, which isn’t anything new, but for the first time this year the Nissan Murano will have a Diesel Engine option!
We all know about the EU’s intense Euro5 emissions standards, and Nissan’s diesel engine will help the Murano keep its act in-line with them. The new Diesel Engine will get the Murano around 35.3 miles to the gallon and 210g/km CO2 emissions, which is much better than the gasoline engine.
The UK’s Nissan Murano – Diesel, will go on sale for about $57,781.
With a sturdy, fully boxed frame and 4-wheel drive, combined with a 4-wheel independent suspension, the 2010 Nissan Pathfinder offers a good combination of serious towing, hauling and off-roading ability while providing a competent and comfortable ride on-road. And with the same big V8 as the full-size Armada, the mid-size Pathfinder becomes both quicker and more capable, with towing capacity now up to 7,000 pounds.
Assembled by General Motors-Daewoo in Korea, the 2010 Chevrolet Aveo appeals to drivers on a budget. MSRP starts at under $12,000, which makes it one of the lowest-priced passenger car available in the U.S. By utilizing ‘tall car’ design aesthetics, both the hatchback and sedan are roomy inside and feature a comfortable ride relative to other small cars. Mileage for 2010 is 27 city / 34 highway.
The 2010 Chevy Aveo is offered in two body styles: a four-door sedan and a five-door hatchback known as the Aveo5. Both styles are available in three trims: the base LS, the mid-range LT1 and well-equipped LT2.
Just as in 2009, the 2010 Aveo comes with a 1.6L Ecotec DOHC 4-cylinder engine with variable valve timing, which helps it make 108 horsepower and 105 pounds-feet of torque. It is mated to a standard 5-speed manual gearbox, while an optional 4-speed automatic transmission is available on the LT trims. The automatic transmission features a hold-control mode to hold a higher gear and to aid traction on slippery roads. All trims are front wheel drive. All Aveos utilize a MacPherson strut front suspension with coil beams and a stabilizer bar and a compound-link independent suspension with torsion beam and gas-charged shocks in the rear.
On the base LS trim, standard features include a tilt steering wheel, rear defogger, air conditioning and an AM/FM stereo with auxiliary input. The LT1 trim comes standard front and rear floor mats, heated outside mirrors and a 6-speaker CD/MP3 sound system. The LT2 gets cruise control, alarm, keyless entry, power doors and windows, power heated mirrors, fog lamps and performance tires. Available options on all trims include anti-lock brakes (ABS), leather-wrapped steering wheel, steering wheel controls, an anti-theft system, woodgrain interior trim, trip computer, aluminum wheels, vinyl seats, sunroof and wireless cell phone integration.
Standard safety features include front driver and passenger airbags with dual-stage deployment, and seat-mounted side airbags for front row occupants. A tire pressure monitoring system is also standard. One year of GM’s OnStar Safe and Sound plan is standard all Aveos.
The 1.6 Base model is only offered with a 5-speed manual transmission, and the top-of-the-line 1.8 SL comes only with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), Most of the other models come with the choice of a 6-speed manual gearbox or conventional 4-speed automatic.
A MacPherson strut front suspension and torsion beam rear suspension, with stabilizer bars front and back, is tuned for a comfortable ride while also maintaining maneuverability. All Versas have a front disc, rear drum brake arrangement; anti-lock brakes are included with 1.8 models but optional on the 1.6. Hatchback models are a little more versatile, with seats that fold forward easily to expand cargo space; the back seats don’t fold in most Versas, but top SL sedans get a split-folding back seat and trunk pass-through.
With either engine, the Versa performs reasonably well; 1.6 models are considerably lighter, so they don’t feel any slower. The manual transmissions shift easily and smoothly, and as for automatics, shoppers should take both versions-the CVT along with the conventional 4-speed-out for a spin and decide which one they like best; the CVT allows faster acceleration and offers the best EPA ratings, at 28 mpg city, 34 highway, but invites more engine noise.
The 1.6 Base model is about as simple as new cars come today, with no power windows or locks, no air conditioning and no radio either. The upgraded standard 1.6 model adds air conditioning. Meanwhile 1.8 S models include a 4-speaker sound system, cargo area lamp and adjustable rear headrests. On 1.8 SL models, there’s a 180-watt sound system with iPod interface, cruise control, keyless entry, power locks and windows, larger alloy wheels and electronic stability control. All Versas get front side-impact airbags and full-length side-curtain bags. The Versa 1.8 can be equipped with a Bluetooth hands-free interface, XM Satellite Radio and the Intelligent Key entry and ignition system and a Navigation/Satellite package will add an in-dash navigation system with 5-inch screen, to arrive late in the model year.
GM will be expanding use of the RS trim pioneered by the new Camaro.
9th march 2010
Chevrolet Cruze was a huge hit at Los Angeles auto show in December by General Motors. Huge response was witnessed through volume of questions about the performance variant of Cruze. The Cobalt SS, sub-par interiors are well known for the legacy of GM compact performance which is always a coveted feature people look for. But surprisingly GM still not confirmed anything about this performance variant and kept on using RS phrase in conversations. GMI has indicated reasons about bringing RS by GM.
Here 2011 order guide for Cruze confirmed a optional RS package on the car. This option is restricted to 2LT and LTZ trim levels and tagged as “appearance package”. RS package is supposed to be having additions as unique deck-lid spoiler, Ground effects package, unique instrument panel and Fog lamps.
By knowing this it is understood that there will be no performance enhancements to the Cruze RS model. According to demonstration Camaro RS package, the RS moniker will be just appearance packages only. This car is going to be launched after fall and by that time only Cruze can be available with RS package. Also few sources clearly confirmed that GM has not took any decision with regard to the Cruze SS to succeed the Cobalt SS.
