Our friend over at Road & Track, Bozi Tatarevic, has a keen nose for stuff just like today's Miata news, and he spotted an article by the Japanese car magazine Car Watch that details Mazda's upcoming updates.HOT NEWS Mazda Miata gets more power, higher redline, telescoping wheel Automotive Cars News Car Watch actually got to drive the car, too. There's a lot to go through, but the highlight has to be confirmation of what we told you earlier this year about a significant power bump: The Miata will indeed get an increase of 26 horsepower, from 155 to 181. But the power's not the whole story. Mazda has increased the redline from 6,800 RPM to 7,500. It's not clear at this point where torque and power peaks are in the rev range,HOT NEWS Mazda Miata gets more power, higher redline, telescoping wheel Automotive Cars News or how these changes affect low-speed drivability, but more revs are almost always a good thing and aren't likely to detract from the roadster's fundamental goodness. Car Watch reports that lighter pistons and connecting rods are fitted to help reduce rotational mass in the 2.0-liter inline-four. Some valvetrain changes were needed to support the higher redline, mainly stiffer valvesprings to prevent valve float. Mazda also changed the shape of the valves and optimized the intake ports to breathe better at higher RPM. The inner diameter of the exhaust ports were increased to flow better through a new muffler better tuned to the engine's new operating range. This confirms and gives a little more detail to what we reported earlier based on a leaked document from Mazda Canada. Car Watch also confirms that the revised Miata will get a low-inertia dual-mass flywheel, which should help absorb some vibration, noise and harshness from the higher-revving engine without losing too much of the directness that a single-mass flywheel provides. Mazda usually gets stuff like this right, so while we won't know until we get a chance to drive it whether the DMF feels "right," we're not too worried about it. There's also a telescopic steering wheel, a first in any Miata, which has a range of about 1.1 inches. That doesn't sound like much, but it should help folks with longer legs reach the wheel without having to crank the seat forward. Interestingly, Car Watch reports that the telescoping wheel was opposed by some in the company seeking to save every fraction of an ounce of weight, and to get it through, the company apparently had to change some of the material in the upper steering column from steel to aluminum to satisfy the weight-conscious. Little details like these are fantastic. Incidentally, the little 1.5-liter engine that's available in other parts of the world gets a tweak, as well. Sadly, in Japan, you can't get the 2.0-liter engine in the softtop model, only in the RF. That won't be the case here, where the new 181 hp engine will be the only choice regardless of top, as the 2.0 is right now. We can't wait to test the new, higher-zoot Miata, and will let you know when to expect a first drive as soon as we can.Automotive Cars News,mazda miata, miata, mazda, mazda mx-5, mazda mx-5 miata, mazda mx-5 (automobile model), mazda mx5, mx-5, 2018 mazda miata, turbo miata, mx5, review, cars, boosted miata, miata rf, 2018 mazda mx-5, mazda (automobile company), mazda mx-5 rf, review mazda mx-5, mx-5 miata, nd miata, miata turbo, na miata, miata review, drift, convertible, roadster, mazda miata 2016, mazda miata review, mazda miata problems, review mazda miata, mazda miata mx-5, mazdaspeed 3,miata, mx-5, mx5, mazda, review, mazda miata, mazda mx5, miata review, roadster, race car, na miata, day in the life, mazda mx-5, Autorep

The 2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake is a wagon, and as such, one must praise its existence. We need more of them. It looks sensational in all its long-roofed glory, especially in Firenze Red and the gloss black exterior trim package — yowza. Plus, its cargo area is deep, wide and generally voluminous. It would be nice if Jaguar included a roll-up net partition for dogs or to prevent high-mounted cargo from flying forward (as Audi does in the Allroad), but nevertheless, the XF Sportbrake should be more functional than many crossover SUVs. It should certainly be more enjoyable to drive, as the XF delivers with Jag's usual steering excellence and body control. While other midsize luxury sedans have drifted away from the sporting realm (cough, BMW 5 Series), the XF maintains its engagement with the driver. As we discovered when driven back-to-back with the Volvo V90, it's one of the sportiest of sport wagons. It's definitely the sportiest of Sportbrakes. However, it's the "XF" bit that disappoints. The original XF was really something when it debuted, featuring seductively sleek styling in a segment of serious German sedans. The distinctive cabin put on a show with rotating air vents and a rotary shifter that rose into your hand upon pressing the start button. The fact that the XF was different inside and outside from its fellow Jaguars also differed from the Russian nesting doll design approach of its competitors. The original wasn't without flaws, but it was special.Automotive Cars News,2018 Jaguar XF S Sportbrake, Jaguar, xf, jag, sport, V6 supercharged, test, tested, review, drive, driven, station wagon, all new, reviewed, TFLcar, the fast lane car,Jaguar XF Sportbrake, Jaguar XF, car reviews, touch pro, collision avoidance,
The day after we drove the 2019 BMW X7 for a road test around South Carolina, BMW bused us to a garage at its South Carolina factory to preview the 2019 X5. The X5 trailed the Mercedes-Benz M-Class to market by a year, but broke open the segment by being the first luxury crossover to deliver a premium-car-like experience. As the X5 prepares for its 20th anniversary next year, it has sold more than 2 million units worldwide (when including its X6 sibling), and it sells better in the U.S. now than it ever has. Nevertheless, BMW wants its first "Sports Activity Vehicle" to reclaim the top spot from the only real competition it has ever had — the Mercedes GLE, which has outsold the X5 for the past two years. The third-generation 2014 X5 was a holdover, built on a reworked chassis from the second-generation X5 introduced in 2007, considered an "update" rather than an entirely new model. The fourth-gen 2019 X5 starts from scratch. Although it rides on the SUV version of BMW's Cluster Architecture — same as the X3 and the X7 — BMW used the gee-whiz multi-material structure to reduce weight instead of increase proportions. We couldn't get a curb-weight figure, but BMW said the new X5 has the same stiffness as the outgoing vehicle, is about 1.1 inches longer with even smaller changes to height and width, on a wheelbase that's "maybe two or three millimeters more" than the 2018 X5.Automotive Cars News,mlf8581, lf85, New BMW X5, BMW X5, BMW X5 review, 2019 BMW X5, 2019 BMW X5 review, 2019 BMW X5 full review, 2019 BMW X5 interior, 2019 BMW X5 exterior, 2019 BMW X5 0-60, BMW X5 2019, BMW X5 review 2019, 2019 BMW X5 test drive, 2019 BMW X5 in action, 2019 BMW X5 testing, Best bmw suv, Worlds most luxurious bmw, New bmw x5, 2019 BMW X5 Redesigned, 2019 bmw m5 reveal, bmw x5 redesign, all new bmw x5, 2019 bmw x5 redesign, 2019 bmw x5 diesel, 2019 bmw x5 hybrid,bmw x5, bmw x5 2019, bmw x5 interior, luxurious SUV, BMW SUV, all New G05, BMW G05, BMW X5 interior,

Mercedes-Benz has finally launched its subscription service in Nashville and Philadelphia, and with it comes a slew of details on how much the program costs and what vehicles are available. Three levels of subscription are available, each with a suitably snooty name starting with Signature, and going up to Reserve, and finally Premier. Signature starts at $1,095 per month, Reserve costs $1,595 per month, and Premier rings in at $2,995 per month. All come with an initial $495 fee for becoming a member.
Unsurprisingly, the more money you spend, the fancier the cars available become. The Signature level includes all bodystyles of the C300, the CLA45, the GLC300 in normal SUV and "coupe" SUV forms, and the SLC300 roadster. Reserve comes with the E300 sedan, E400 wagon and coupe, C43 sedan and coupe, GLE350, GLC43, and the SLC43 roadster. The Premier subscription comes with the most impressive cars such as the E63 sedan, C63 sedan and C63 S coupe, S560 sedan, GLE63 S SUV, GLE S "coupe" SUV, GLS550, G550, and the SL550 raodster. If you want to drive something in a higher tier, but don't want to change your subscription, you can pay daily fees for a car over a short term until you change back to a car in your subscription.
In addition to the ability to pick from a wide assortment of vehicles at will, the subscription also includes insurance, maintenance, roadside assistance, and no mileage limits. All that is needed to subscribe is to download the app to your phone, provide a copy of your driver's license, and have your credit checked and approved.
Mercedes is far from the only company experimenting with a subscription model for cars. Volvo offers Care by Volvo with its XC40 crossover. That program features insurance and maintenance with a $500 initial fee and monthly fees of $600 to $700 depending on trim level, but it only provides the subscriber with access to an XC40, whereas the Mercedes plan offers multiple models. Porsche Passport is very similar to the Mercedes program and is priced similarly. The base plan starts at $2,000 per month with four models, but the top $3,000 a month program offers access to 22 variants of Porsches. Like the Mercedes program, there are no mileage limits and it comes with insurance and maintenance covered. At the cheap end of the spectrum is Hyundai, which has a program for the Ioniq Electric with all the bells and whistles of the others, but with a monthly cost of between $275 and $365 per month. It has a steep entry fee of $2,500 though.
