2012 BMW 520d GT review

Saturday, October 6th, 2012

The BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo (or 5 GT) has traditionally been available only with relatively thirsty six- and eight-cylinder engines.

Now, though, BMW has slotted its frugal 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel under the bonnet of this big executive hatchback to create the 520d GT.

The new model averages 53.3mpg and 139g/km of CO2, a significant improvement on the 43.5mpg and 173g/km of the next…

Audi Crosslane Coupe Concept is bursting with interesting tech

Saturday, October 6th, 2012

Filed under: , , , , , , , ,

Audi Crosslane Coupe Concept

Audi has lifted the sheet on its newest concept car at the Paris Motor Show, a vehicle called the Crosslane Coupe Concept that hits just about every concept car meme that we know of. The angular Audi is, at once a coupe, a convertible and a crossover; it is a two-seater and a 2+2, it has a hybrid powertrain with a small, efficient gasoline engine and no less than two electric motors; the whole structure is made from advanced materials. As a matter of fact, the car’s interior – usually a showplace for concept car “stuff” – is perhaps the tamest sector of the Crosslane.

Audi has used an exotic mix of aluminum, carbon fiber-reinforced polymer and fiberglass-reinforced polymer to create the concept’s “multimaterial” space frame. The result is a vehicle that offers a rigid, yet lightweight structure. The total weight of the Crosslane is a reasonable 3,064 pounds.

The coupe concept is powered by a combination of a 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine, a smaller electric motor that acts primarily as a starter and alternator and a second electric motor that adds quick to the Audi’s giddy-up. Total system power averages out to 176 horsepower, giving the vehicle a 0-62 sprint of 8.6 seconds and a top speed of 113 miles per hour. The electric motor can also work alone in this plug-in hybrid system, using a 17.4-kWh lithium-ion battery for a range of around 53-miles worth of pure electric driving.

As you might expect, this cocktail of electric motors and gasoline power work together in a number of different ways. The larger electric motor delivers driving power from 0-34 mph. Over 34 mph, all of the motive forces work together to propel the vehicle, until about 80 mph where the three-cylinder becomes the main source of power, with the smaller motor working to support if needed.

The Crosslane has an interesting movable trunk space, which can push forward to allow easy access from inside of the cabin, or move backwards to open up space for two rear seats. When the concept car’s removable top is stowed, it also serves as a cover for this cargo space.

To read all of the details, scroll down for the press release.

Audi RS5 Cabriolet debuts in Paris, confirmed for U.S. in Q1 2013

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

Filed under: , , ,

We would never kick a 450-horsepower convertible out of bed, especially one as pretty as the 2013 Audi RS5 Cabriolet. We’ll admit, the chrome wheels aren’t really doing it for us – we much prefer the standard alloys – but nevertheless, there’s a lot to like about this topless Audi.

Most importantly, the RS5 Cabriolet still uses Audi’s naturally aspirated 4.2-liter V8 that’s being discontinued elsewhere in the company’s lineup. We adore this high-revving, fire-breathing engine, though we’d like it more if it were mated to a six-speed manual transmission rather than the car’s standard seven-speed S-tronic gearbox. Still, the all-wheel-drive convertible can sprint to 62 miles per hour in just under five seconds on its way to a top speed of 155 mph (or 174 mph if you ask Audi nicely to remove the limiter).

While speaking with Autoblog at the Paris Motor Show, Scott Koegh, President of Audi’s U.S. operations, confirmed the Cabriolet will arrive Stateside in the first quarter of 2013 as the newest member of the RS5 family.

“That car is a no-brainer,” Koegh said. “We think our RS strategy fills the brand. We think adding this high-performance attribute is huge. TT RS is a classic example. The car sold out and rock-and-rolled extremely well.”

The car goes on sale in Germany next summer, priced from €88,500, or about $111,500 based on current exchange rates. At this point, it’s unclear whether the convertible will carry a 2013 or a 2014 model year designation, but we’re banking on the latter as the Coupe model is already on sale here as a 2013. We’re also guessing it’ll be lot cheaper when it comes to America, however – the Coupe, which is already on sale, retails for under $70,000. Scroll down for the full press release.
