2010 Acura MDX

2010 Acura MDX

The 2010 Acura MDX ranks 1 out of 17 Luxury Midsize SUVs. This ranking is based on our analysis of 78 published reviews and test drives of the Acura MDX, and our analysis of reliability and safety data.  The 2010 Acura MDX’s cabin is stylish, comfortable and better equipped than ever. However, despite Acura’s attempts to better organize the dashboard controls, several reviewers still find the layout confusing.

2010 Acura MDX

2010 Acura TSX V6 Sports Sedan

Acura debuted the all-new Acura TSX V6 sports sedan at the 2009 Chicago Auto Show. Scheduled to go on sale this summer, the 2010 Acura TSX V6 will be equipped with a powerful 3.5-liter engine, exclusive suspension tuning, larger diameter wheels and additional enhancements.
The 2010 Acura TSX V6 is really an American car. It’s so American that it works better with a 3.5-liter V6 engine than it does with its 2.4-liter inline-4, which is kind of a surprise for a car that comes from Honda by way of its premium car division.

The new Acura TSX model will feature a state-of-the-art, double-wishbone front and multilink rear suspension system to provide excellent ride, handling and control.
The 2010 Acura TSX V6 has its American car thing pretty together on the highway. It’s pretty comfortable, pretty composed and pretty undemanding. Yet like the TSX four-cylinder, it has a peculiar mix of soggy damping at low speeds that lets the car bob and weave more than it should, while the suspension calibration at freeway speed feels too lively, as if someone had put 80 psi of air in the tires.

2010 Mazda 3 Sedan

The new Mazda 3 Sedan is perfectly positioned for the rapidly changing automotive market. It offers a mix of quality, styling, power, dynamics and fit and finish that meets the demands of today’s customers. In typical Mazda fashion, this new Mazda 3 Sedan will offer standard and optional equipment not found on other cars in its class – exactly what buyers want when seeking compact cars providing outstanding value.

Inside, the new Mazda 3 Sedan offers a sporty yet highly refined cabin – the dash sweeping dramatically from its centre to the sides of the cabin. The large gauge instrument cluster and centre stack are positioned to tightly link the driver’s limbs and senses to the car’s instruments and controls.

New Car Collections | E WOLF E-2

The E-1 with the car manufacturer e-Wolf GmbH is a first: an ultra lightweight carbon / aluminum construction of the chassis with innovative flat cell technology, formula racing technology and the approval for use in traffic. Thanks to its innovation and technology, the E-1 performance values, which is impossible in its class so far: 0-100 kmh in under 5 seconds. For safety reasons, the top speed to 250 km / h is limited e-WOLF is also characterized in the market by its consistent use of lightweight components for its 100% electric drive system. All technologies, components and assemblies it uses are “Made in Germany”.
A Li-Tec Battery is CERIO flat cells, the major component. It has a higher temperature tolerance, and improved safety compared to other technologies. This innovation has been nominated for the German Future Prize 2007, an honor. Its special low-volume composite anodes can much more energy than most other products now provide on the market. Each flat cell (the battery has a total of 84) weighs only 1 kg and measures 23 x 18 cm. That is, it is only slightly larger than an exercise book. Another important aspect of the Li-Tec Battery is CERIO flat cells, the cycle stability and unmatched durability (10 years) and range (300 km). This makes Li-Tec, the spearhead of the current flat-cell development.
To demonstrate the technology, an open-wheeled version of the e-WOLF-electric sports car at the IAA 2009 will be issued. E-WOLF has scheduled its launch (customized limited edition) for the beginning of 2010. “Offer our goal, a 2-seater extreme sports car in 2011, the E-WOLF E-2″, Kai Schoenberg, marketing manager at e-WOLF GmbH “reach is dynamic performance that is very impressive. ” This innovative 4-wheel drive vehicle will be powered by 4 high-performance electric motors with direct coupling. “Here at e-WOLF, we can certainly imagine our E-2 participate in a 24-hour race in the coming years,” said Schoenberg. E-WOLF is marketed worldwide, with operations initially focus on the Middle East and Japan. e-Wolf is in a different league – it does not compete with the big sports car manufacturer. E-WOLF targets a market segment that has been neglected: extreme sports car for a very elite clientele. Let me be clear: There is an electric sports car with a capacity for acceleration that puts it on the edge of technical feasibility.
Newly established e-Wolf GmbH is part of the Maiworm group. The company has accepted the challenge of development and production of electrical power extreme sports cars. The e-company shall not approach Wolf know-how to accumulate the technological development of electric vehicles. Instead, e-WOLF negotiated strategic alliances and project partnerships that they deliberately draw on the expertise of institutes and companies active in this area can draw. In return, e-WOLF enjoys the significant advantage integrate, always in a position to the cutting edge of research in the design of its vehicles. Dr. Werner Hufenbach, director of the Institute for Lightweight Structures and Polymer Technology (ILK), TU Dresden, confirmed that the cooperation between the Institute and e-Wolf will remain an important focal point in the future. “We are sure to go with the trend in this regard and I am personally convinced that electric vehicles will change the world. We have a great chance that we are making the most of plan,” he said. The Institute for Lightweight Structures and Polymer Technology (ILK), TU Dresden, the Saxon Centre for Lightweight Structures (LZS) and Li-Tec Battery are some of the most important e-WOLF partners.
By providing innovative drive components (motor, battery and control systems), e-Wolf GmbH is in the development of an ion transporter of FUMO Multicar part. Powered by electricity, is ideal for Multicar local governments and garden and landscaping work in the city centers, recreational centers and spas. A prototype of the Ion FUMO 1 electric vans will be on the eCarTec 2009 in October. Field trials will be undertaken as the next step.

The combination with a four-bar hatchback trunk and flat folding rear seats, the Model S, a 50-inch TV, mountain bike * and * recording a surfboard. This packaging efficiency gives the S model more luggage space than any other sedan on the market and more than most SUVs.
“Non-S model of performance, efficiency or utility model compromise – it is really the only car you need,” said Tesla CEO, Chairman and Product Architect Elon Musk. “Tesla is to relentlessly reduce the cost of electric vehicle technology, and this is just the first of many mainstream cars we develop.”
Tesla Model S expects to begin production in late 2011. The company believes it is close to receive $ 350,000,000 in bonds of the Federal Republic of Germany for the Model S assembly plant built in California by the Department of Energy Advanced Vehicle Manufacturing Technology Program.
Tesla is currently the only manufacturer already sells highway-capable EVs in North America or Europe. With 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds, the Roadster offers almost all sports cars in its class is still six times as energy efficient as gas-guzzlers and delivers 244 miles per charge.

“Model S costs half as much as a roadster, and it is a much better value than cheaper cars,” said Musk. “The ownership costs for model S, when to lease it and then make the much lower cost of electricity vs. gasoline at an estimated cost of $ 4 per gallon have been, is similar to a gasoline car with a sticker price of about $ 35,000 . I’m sure this car will be the preferred choice of savvy consumers. ”
The standard model S does 0-60 mph in under six seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 130 km / h, to achieve much with sports versions expected acceleration 0-60 mph under 5 seconds. A single-speed transmission delivers effortless acceleration and handling.

New Car Collections | SPORT MEETS THE 2009 LEXUS IS350

To follow up on the IS300/Altezza story that was published earlier today on Speedhunters, I thought I'd post up a new car story, featuring this newly revamped 2009 Lexus IS350, which is built up with F-Sport accessories. In case you haven't yet heard of F-Sport, it's the newly branded line of performance parts available from Lexus - basically the same concept as TRD parts for Toyotas, but for the Lexus brand.
As almost all our readers know, I'm a huge fan of, and owner of several Toyota/Lexus vehicles. I recently heard from a friend at Lexus that the corporate offices just received the kouki (late model) versions of the IS350s, which had minor exterior revisions from the early, or zenki model, so I asked him if I could stop by the office and see the newly re-done IS.
The subtle differences in Toyota's zenki and kouki (before and after minor change) models are often difficult to to spot unless you have both cars right next to each other, so I thought I'd just explain some of the new styling differences in the cars. New for 2009, Lexus revised the IS model's front bumper and front grill. While I like the overall sporty appearance of the front grill and bumper, I'm quite honestly a bit saddened by the fact that there isn't an available front lip spoiler at the moment, due to the bumper redesign. I sure hope someone makes a bumper lip kit pretty soon. Vertex lower lip kit, anyone?
Aside from the exterior changes, this F-Sport equipped IS350 also comes fully equipped with the F-Sport suspension, which consists of TRD/Bilstein shocks, F-Sport lowering springs, F-Sport rear chassis brace, larger diameter F-Sport sway bars and polyurethane bushings. Nice! These suspension improvements will surely make a difference in the high and low speed handling of the F-Sport equipped IS models, as if the IS350 didn't handle well enough already! This is great news!

Wheels are important for the looks and performance of any car. This new F-Sport equipped IS350 features new lightweight forged alloy wheels with a staggered fitment - specifically, 19x8J up front with 225/35/R19 tires. The matching back wheels are actually 19x9J; I think it would look awesome to have 19x9J wheels all the way around the car. That would look awesome, due to the inceased fat lip of the wheels, from front to back. Aggressive.
Even when randomly glancing at the car, it's impossible not to notice the F-Sport brake upgrade, which consists of 6-piston calipers and cross drilled 355mm rotors, which are mounted on very nice looking black anodized aluminum hubs. Stainless steel braided brake lines also replace the factory rubber lines for added stopping performance - no danger of the brake lines expanding and bulging when the brake fluid gets hot from use on the racetrack or your favorite winding road.

New for 2009 models, Lexus has this slick looking turn signal incorporated into the side mirrors. I think these mirrors will be an extremely cool upgrade for owners of first generation IS250s and IS350s.

Inside the car, D-mode paddle shifting functions behind the steering wheel have been added to the normal IS350s, as well as contrast stitching on the door panels, leather covered center console/armrest lid and seats. Very nice way to step up the styling of the car, Lexus! As if it weren't classy enough. IS350 owners with high attention to detail may notice that the center panel instrument cluster is different as well.

While I prefer driving the 6-speed manual transmission version of the IS, I must admit, the automatic version is pretty fun to drive as well, especially with the paddle shifters. Nice looking shift knob and center console too.

If you look closely, you can notice the double contrast stitching on the leather seats and center console armrests. It's details like this that make me like Lexus a whole lot.

Even though the particular IS350 F-Sport in the photos doesn't have it installed, Lexus makes an additional optional F-Sport carbon fiber engine cover for the IS350. Although, to be extremely honest, I don't see the point in paying big money for a carbon fiber piece that just covers your engine. It doesn't make the IS350 perform better, but I'm sure some people out there will buy it just because.

What I think does matter for performance, however, is the addition of the slick looking F-Sport intake system, which has a high flow air filter, and nicely badged piping system, as we can see here in the photo. Whoever designed that metal F badge did a hell of a good job. And I never like anyone's logos! Good job as usual, Lexus.

For the 2009 model year, the rear bumper of the IS350 has been revised, as well as the taillights.
From here, you can see the flat lip on the 19x9J rear wheels, which have 255/35/R19s mounted to them. Like I mentioned before, I think I'd like to see these 19x9s all the way around, with 225s mounted to them. That would look awesome, especially if the car was lowered a couple more inchers, and used spacers to improve the offset. You could do that, too... because these F-Sport accessories are just accessories, there's nothing stopping you from ordering rear F-Sport wheels only, especially if you're ordering the wheels from an easy-to-deal-with Toyota parts counter guy like Herb at Cabe Toyota in Long Beach, or Jay at Glendora Toyota.
The exhaust uses polished stainless steel pipes and mufflers, and looks pretty nice with the exhaust tip style subtly placed under the bumper. Don't worry about getting pulled over by the local five-oh though... this exhaust system is certified street legal, and doesn't affect emissions compliance, and isn't too loud either - it is under the 95 decibel legal limit. So take that, officer. Go harrass someone else.

All in all, the F-Sport equipped Lexus IS250 and IS350 are really well done in my opinion. The big brakes and suspension modifications drastically improve the high speed and low speed cornering characteristics of the car, while retaining the smooth and luxurious Lexus ride quality. Even though installing an aftermarket intake system and exhaust are very simple mods, the beauty of the F-Sport packaged IS250 and IS350 is that the car comes with better-than-stock looking wheels, amazing big brakes, engine performance bolt-ons, and a good all-around suspension setup... and everything can be financed from the dealer as part of your monthly payment plan.
Good job, Lexus. I honestly think that the IS series cars are great for daily driving, and even more so if they are F-Sport equipped! Now the only difficult question is... which one to choose? IS250 F-Sport, IS350 F-Sport, or the monstrous ISF? Either one is pretty effin sporty.
