2012 Ford Harley Davidson F-150 (slide)

accents, a new stylized bodyside graphic and a new wheel and premium paint
NEW 2015 Audi A7 Sportback V6 TDI S line
The spacious five-door coupe is now even more powerful and attractive --
thanks to new engine configurations, new transmissions, new headlights,
taillights and new infotainment systems.
The most striking changes are to the Singleframe grille, bumpers, tailpipes
and headlights. LED technology is now standard; upon request, Audi can
supply Matrix LED headlights, which light the road optimally without
causing glare for other road users. Combined with the Matrix LED
headlights, dynamic turn signals are also installed at the front; they come
standard at the rear.
The body of the new Audi A7 Sportback consists primarily of aluminum and
high‑tech steel grades. It is extraordinarily lightweight and designed
for maximum comfort in terms of noise. The cargo space under the long,
electrically driven trunk lid has a base capacity of 535 liters
(18.9 cu ft). When the rear seat backs are folded down it grows to
1,390 liters (49.1 cu ft).
The sporty style of the exterior is echoed in the car's interior. The
dominant element is the horizontal line surrounding the driver and
passenger. The dashboard gives an impression of lightness and elegance. The
new interior materials, including the aluminum/Beaufort walnut inlay and
Valcona leather, are impressive for their finish. The color palette has
been redesigned, offering five color options even for the seats.
The new Audi A7 Sportback is confident and relaxed to drive. The front
seats can be optionally equipped with ventilation and massage functions,
and there are four seat versions to choose from. The MMI radio operating
system comes standard; it can be supplemented as an option with a
head‑up display that projects all important information onto the
To start out, Audi is offering the new A7 Sportback with a choice of five
powerful and highly efficient engines: two gasoline and three diesel units.
Their power rating ranges from 160 kW (218 hp) to 245 kW (333 hp), and
all of them comply with the Euro 6 emission standard. Many aspects of the
3.0 TDI clean diesel with 200 kW (272 hp) have been newly developed.
In the "ultra" version with 160 kW (218 hp) and front-wheel drive, the
three-liter V6 uses an average of just 4.7 liters of fuel per
100 kilometers (50.0 US mpg), corresponding to CO2 emissions of
122 grams per kilometer (196.3 g/mi). The top‑of‑the‑range engine,
the 4.0 TFSI, is available in the Audi S7 Sportback. It delivers 331 kW
(450 hp) of power and uses innovative COD (cylinder on demand)
The 3.0 TDI biturbo clean diesel,
which delivers 235 kW (320 hp), works with an eight‑speed tiptronic
transmission; all other engine configurations have a seven‑speed
S tronic transmission. In the versions with front‑wheel drive, the
dual‑clutch transmission has been fully redeveloped, replacing the
multitronic. In engine configurations starting at 200 kW (272 hp),
quattro permanent all-wheel drive can be supplemented with the sport
differential, which actively distributes power between the rear wheels.
The chassis, too, combines sporty precision with high comfort. The new Audi
A7 Sportback features wheels with diameters ranging from 17 to 21 inches.
Some engine configurations are equipped with new lightweight brakes. The
power steering system features an electromechanical drive for high
The Audi drive select dynamic handling system is standard. Options include
dynamic steering, two sport suspension versions and adaptive air
suspension; on the S7 Sportback, the air suspension has a firmer setup.
The new Audi A7 Sportback will begin arriving at dealerships in late
summer 2014. Its base price in Germany will be €51,300. The Audi
S7 Sportback is available starting at €82,300.

2012 Honda Civic (new teaser)
Honda will launch the new Civic at the IAA Frankfurt Motor Show in
September. Developed specifically for the European market, the Civic will
be offered exclusively as a five-door hatchback and will compete in the
C-segment. In the build-up to the reveal of the new Civic, Honda is
releasing a series of short form films detailing its development. The
second of these films focuses on the i-DTEC engine and the Civic's low
emissions technology. The i-DTEC engine in the new Honda Civic combines
high performance with low CO2 emissions. Updates to the 2.2-litre i-DTEC
engine, coupled with the new Civic's improved aerodynamics, have produced a
car with a power output of 150PS that emits only 110g/km of CO2. An
analysis of the engine's performance showed a number of improvements. The
oil flow through the engine has been managed to reduce circulation loss,
while the build materials have been revised to reduce friction in the
