2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA 180 Urban - Reviews about cars | Cars.com | Car Reviews Please, Like & Subscribe Car 3x ^^. Subscribe : https://goo.gl/cKv9wf Twitter.com : https://goo.gl/tRTfbG Let's make one thing clear: this is not a Mercedes-Benz A-Class. As much as it looks like a taller version of the five-door hatch, this is in fact its crossover brethren, the GLA. Suited for those that want something slightly bigger than a hatchback, the GLA serves as the brand's smallest crossover offering and is part of the brand's New Generation Compact Car (NGCC) Range. The brand known the world over for making luxury sedans and go-anywhere SUVs have branched out to building cars that are hip, trendy and aimed directly at the younger generation. But has Mercedes-Benz struck the right balance in delivering luxury on what is essentially the first stepping stone in owning a high-riding three-pointed star? Would it please both the new car buyer as well as the existing customer base? In the looks department, I'd say Mercedes-Benz has made a dashing little crossover. As I've mentioned earlier, the GLA borrows its looks from the sporty A-Class. While not as sharp as the hatchback, the rounded curves and sweeping lines on the GLA makes for a sleek and classy crossover. There are even subtle hints of muscle present on the GLA thanks to the flared wheel arches and shapely doors. Notice anything different on the refreshed GLA? If you're hard pressed to find any exterior differences, so were we. With a keen eye however, we did manage to see what changes Mercedes-Benz applied to the 2018 update. Up front, it gets a bigger and sportier front grill along with new LED light signatures that give the car a meaner yet more mature look. There's also the new lower front bumper which adopts a sleeker and shinier appearance than before. Changes at the rear were minimal at best but it does now have a smoother-shaped rear bumper, tweaked LED taillights and a new tailgate-mounted spoiler. A base model this 180 Urban may be, yet I was surprised to know that Mercedes-Benz fitted this GLA with plenty of exterior add-ons. Auto-leveling LED headlights, all-around parking sensors, skid plates for the front and rear, and massive 18-inch alloy wheels come as standard on the GLA. Open the doors and the GLA greets you with heaps of black leather, soft-touch materials and metal trim pieces. Those familiar with the A-Class' cabin will feel right at home inside the GLA. But unlike the pre-updated version, the refreshed model gets a plethora of improvements like a thicker leather steering wheel, upgraded Comand infotainment system, restyled gauges and a bigger entertainment display. All of the seats were comfortable and offered plenty of lumbar and side support. I just wished that the front seats had more shoulder support. Legroom at the back was sufficient although passengers that are beyond 5'9 may find the accommodations a bit cramped. Some may find the manual air-conditioning system a bit of a letdown in the GLA but the redeeming factor however is that it keeps the cabin cool at even the hottest of days. The driver's side gets power seats (with memory function) while the passen... #2018 #MercedesBenz #GLA #180 #Urban #Reviews #about #cars #Carscom #Car #Reviews #car3x

2018 Subaru WRX STI - Review of the car | Cars.com | Car Reviews Please, Like & Subscribe Car 3x ^^. Subscribe : https://goo.gl/cKv9wf Twitter.com : https://goo.gl/tRTfbG It's 5PM and I'm stuck in payday traffic behind the wheel of the recently updated Subaru WRX STI. It was perhaps one of the most stressful, tiring commutes I've had in a while and I was longing for a good, long nap after that drive. Call me a bit of a pansy but the new WRX STI is too loud and too raucous for everyday life. Then again, I spent most of my life with my bottom firmly planted on big, wafty sedans. And yet, despite the discomfort, there was just something so right about the rally rep. But before I get ahead of myself, perhaps its best to take a closer look at tweaked WRX STI. This generation of WRX STI has been around since 2015 and has long been a familiar shape in high-performance circles. Late last year, they gave it a bit of a facelift and, quite frankly, it looks softer than its blistered-arch predecessors. Sure, there's a new front bumper and, oddly enough, it loses its front foglights in the process. In this variant, dubbed the Premium, it also loses one of its styling signatures, namely the rear wing. As a kid who looked up to Colin McRae growing up, that made me a bit sad. But perhaps you want your 300 horsepower pocket-rocket to look a little bit more subtle. The loss of the rear wing helps in that, although one might mistake it for its lesser-powered sibling, the WRX. Still if acute angles, aerodynamic adornments and daring styling are not to your liking, then this rally rep won't divide opinion on styling. Besides, the signature WR Blue makes the wingless STI look that bit more vibrant. It's ironic that the STI, one of the more wacky and daring-looking cars of the 90's, has become more subtle and subdued, at least compared to its rivals. If you've sat inside the previous-generation XV, then the WRX STI's cabin should look somewhat familiar. The low window sills provide a great view out of the cockpit and the ergonomics are pretty spot on. Call it a tarted up (previous-gen) Impreza and you'd be somewhat correct but the STI details lifts up cabin ambiance. The suede/leather combination seats are snug, just as it should in a car with performance intentions. Also, the thick-rimmed steering wheel makes it feel that bit more special too. So what did they change in the interior? It's mostly relegated to new displays. For starters, there's a new, more detailed instrument cluster with white numbers instead of red. The information display on the other hand is lifted from the all-new Impreza. Perhaps the most significant news in the cabin is a new infotainment system. Like the information display, it too comes from the all-new Impreza. That means it's pretty easy to use and comes with a decent amount of functions that brings it bang up to date. Of course, under the hood is a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder boxer engine aided by a turbocharger. Like before, it makes 300 PS and 407 Nm of torque. Manual fans rejoice as the WRX STI still shifts via a six-speed manual transmission. Being a Subaru, all-wheel drive is standard but they made a lot o... #2018 #Subaru #WRX #STI #Review #of #the #car #Carscom #Car #Reviews #car3x
Jaguar XJR-9: Pic of the Week | Cars.com | Car Reviews Please, Like & Subscribe Car 3x ^^. Subscribe : https://goo.gl/cKv9wf Twitter.com : https://goo.gl/tRTfbG Three decades ago this weekend (alright, actually the 11th and 12th June 1988, but it's close enough), the Jaguar XJR-9 took a momentous first place at Le Mans. Not only did it end seven years of Porsche dominance at La Sarthe, it was also Jaguar's first Le Mans triumph in more than 30 years, since the last D-Type victory of 1957. It wasn't easy, either, with the Porsche 962 of Hans Stuck, Klaus Ludwig and Derek Bell - not a bad trio of drivers, it must be said - finishing on the same 394 laps as the 7.0-litre Jag. However, despite gearbox problems and eight Porsches also in the top 10, the XJR9 of Jan Lammers, Andy Wallace and Johnny Dumfries was first across the line. Given we're now 30 years from that success (and nearly 30 years from Jaguar's last win at Le Mans, with the XJR-12 in 1990), there seemed no better time to remind ourselves what a wild racing car the XJR-9 is. In a world where the most dramatic Jaguar road car was an XJS it must have looked completely absurd; even in the 21st century, with all the incredible racing cars we see in motorsport, nothing quite gets people going like the Silk Cut XJR9. The livery, the covered wheels, the kerb scraping stance and the deranged V12 shriek means the XJR9 is as revered 30 years later as it's ever been, and will hopefully continue to be as 40, 50 and 60 years pass since its win. What a car. Now all you have to do is choose your desktop resolution below to spruce up your screensaver with some Silk Cut. And see you at Le Mans! 16:1016:9Quad HD4K #Jaguar #XJR9 #Pic #of #the #Week #Carscom #Car #Reviews #car3x
Honda Prelude 2.2 VTi Motegi: Discovered | Cars.com | Car Reviews Please, Like & Subscribe Car 3x ^^. Subscribe : https://goo.gl/cKv9wf Twitter.com : https://goo.gl/tRTfbG When Honda launched the fifth-generation Prelude in 1997, it's fair to say it was not met with universal acclaim. Even at best, it looked boxy and slightly awkward; a far cry from the smooth fourth-gen car with its evil grin and pert profile. Some commentators even compared the glaring headlights and gormless grille of the new car to the recently-revealed Ford Scorpio. Time, however, is a great healer - or perhaps said commentators were just over-egging the pudding. Either way, to modern eyes the fifth-gen Prelude looks a good deal more handsome than it once did. Trouble is, what with the 90s fad for coupes on a fast ebb when it came out, it wasn't all that popular - indeed, it lived a short life and wasn't replaced in 2001 when the plug was pulled. Today, that means you just can't find the things. And if you can, they're usually daggy old 2.0-litres or automatic 2.2s with a litany of suspension knocks and rust bubbles and more miles than you'd like. What's super rare is to find a manual 2.2 with low miles - and it's even more unheard of to come across a bona fide Motegi. The Motegi special edition was based on the post-facelift 2.2, with its H22A engine - yes, the very same that featured in the Accord Type R, although here it kicks out 200hp instead of the ATR's 212. Still, that's more than enough for a sub-seven-second 0-62mph time, and of course, you get all of the high-rev hijinks you might reasonably expect from that powerplant. In addition, the Motegi got a stiffer, more handling-oriented suspension setup than the standard car's, turning it from a slightly effete poseur into a more serious sporting proposition, and making good use of the sharp turn-in bestowed upon the 2.2-litre Preludes by the the four-wheel-steer system. You also got bigger wheels and a sharper bodykit, resulting in some rather more serious aesthetics. In short, this was a deeply appealing bit of kit. But if it's so good, why haven't you heard of it? Blame the lack of a Type R badge - because to all intents and purposes, a Prelude Type R was really what the Motegi was. And with prices for real Type Rs on the rise, the £3,495 being asked for this example feels like a bit of a bargain. It's covered just 87,000 miles, comes with a trove of paperwork, and sounds like it's been owned and cherished by an enthusiast. And we reckon it looks absolutely terrific, too - and to hell with what they said in the 1990s. Snap it up while you can - you won't see another like it for a long while - and savour this bubble-beating, rev-happy Honda that nobody's heard of.
