Saab PhoeniX concept revealed in Geneva

A year after gaining independence from GM, Saab is rising from the ashes with the stunning PhoeniX concept. Penned by Jason Castriota, the PhoeniX wears Saab's new Aeromotional design language which incorporates aircraft-inspired styling elements. Notable highlights include butterfly doors, winglets, a twin-ripple hood, LED 'ice-block' headlights, and a distinctive front fascia which will likely been seen on future production models. According to Castriota, "The PhoeniX establishes a new reference point for the future of Saab product design. It symbolizes a renaissance of the innovative spirit and passion that drove Saab to build its first car. We're now taking the visual DNA forward with what we call 'aeromotional' design, adding emotion, power and fluidity." No interior pictures were released, but Saab says the cabin has a minimalist design with a 2+2 seating arrangement and an afterburner-inspired instrument cluster. More notably, the concept features an Android-based IQon infotainment system which can download third-party apps via the internet. Under the hood, power is provided by a turbocharged 1.6-liter petrol engine that develops 200 PS (147 kW / 197 hp) and 250 Nm (185 lb-ft) of torque. It is backed up by a rear axle electric motor (dubbed eXWD) which churns out 34 PS (25 kW / 34 hp) and gives the car an all-wheel drive system. Thanks to this setup, the concept can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 5.9 seconds and hit an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). More importantly, Saab estimates the PhoeniX will have a combined fuel consumption of 5.0L/100 km (56.5 mpg img / 47 mpg US) and CO2 emissions of 119 g/km.

2012 Kia Picanto promo
Completely redesigned for 2012, the second generation Kia Picanto (aka Morning in S. Korea) has made its world debut at the 81st Geneva Motor Show. Displaying a lot more character, the Picanto drops the cute Pokemon look of the first generation for a bolder design. The Picanto features an aggressive front bumper, sweptback headlights, flame surfaced doors, side skirts, unique taillights and a roof spoiler. Add in aggressive design lines and sporty alloy wheels and the Picanto is transformed into a serious contender in the sub-compact city car segment. The new generation Picanto will be offered as a five-door globally while a sportier three-door body style will eventually be available in Europe. When lauched towards the end of 2011, four "super-efficient" engines will be available. These engines include a 1.0-liter three-cylinder, available in petrol, flex fuel and bi-fuel versions, as well as a 1.2-liter four-cylinder petrol. Outputs will range from 69 (51 kW / 69 hp) to 85 PS (63 kW / 84 hp), while torque numbers vary from 94 (69 lb-ft) to 121 Nm (89 lb-ft). More specifically, the 1.0-liter bi-fuel engine produces 82 PS (60 kW / 81 hp) and 94 Nm (69 lb-ft) of torque. A five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic is available for all engines. CO2 emissions range from 95 to 105 g/km or 90 and 100 g/km with the optional engine start/stop system.





2012 Kia Rio promo
Kia has introduced the new Rio at the Geneva Motor Show. Available in three- and five-door body styles, the redesigned model features a bold front fascia, deeply sculpted doors, and optional LED daytime driving lights. It measures 55mm longer, 25mm wider, and 15mm lower than the outgoing model. Furthermore, the 2,570mm wheelbase results in a spacious cabin and a luggage compartment which can hold up to 390 liters (13.8 cubic feet) of cargo. Speaking of the interior, the cabin is described as "clean" and "sophisticated." While we wouldn't go that far, material quality seems significantly improved from its predecessor. Additionally, the Rio offers options such as passive entry, Bluetooth connectivity, and heated front seats. Under the hood, four different engines will be available. The entry-level 1.25-liter petrol produces 85 PS (63 kW / 84 hp) and 118 Nm (87 lb-ft) of torque, which enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 13 seconds and hit a top speed of 167 km/h (104 mph). Moving up the 1.4-liter petrol rewards owners with 109 PS (80 kW / 108 hp) and 136 Nm (100 lb-ft) of torque. Thanks to the extra power, the dash from 0-100 km/h takes 11.5 seconds and the top speed is 181 km/h (112 mph). On the diesel side, there's a 1.1-liter three-cylinder that develops 82 PS (60 kW / 81 hp) and 94 Nm (69 lb-ft) of torque. This anemic engine means 0-100 km/h clocks in at 16.4 seconds and the top speed is 161 km/h (100 mph). If you don't have all day to wait around, the 1.4-liter four-cylinder churns out 90 PS (66 kW / 89 hp) and 216 Nm (159 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 14.2 seconds and top out at 171 km/h (106 mph). The five-door Rio will go on sale later this year, while the three-door variant will be launched in early 2012.

2012 Saab 9-5 SportCombi (2011 Geneva Auto Show)
New Saab 9-5 SportCombi * Next step in Saab's biggest-ever new product offensive * Distinctive alternative choice in premium wagon segment * Styling carries forward 9-5 sedan's bold design language * First customer deliveries in September Saab Automobile takes the next step in the biggest new product offensive in its history when the much-awaited 9-5 SportCombi is unveiled at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. Sleek and fun-to-drive, the SportCombi adds versatility to the widely acclaimed attributes of the 9-5 sedan and will bring a distinctive, alternative choice to the premium, large wagon segment. It shares the sedan's bold, Aero X-inspired looks and features an extended, falling roof-line which culminates in a steeply raked rear screen flanked by signature Saab 'wraparound' window glazing. The result is an imposing and sporty wagon with a low stance and a dynamic, visual appeal that concedes nothing to the requirements of load-carrying. Smart cargo handling features include an adaptable multi-fold floor, flexible U-rail load space configuration and under-floor stowage with a sealed wet storage compartment. A programmable, powered tailgate is also available. Backed by the same all-turbo gasoline, bioethanol and diesel powertrain line-up as the 9-5 sedan, the SportCombi includes Saab's industry-leading XWD all-wheel-drive system and advanced features such as: Saab DriveSense adaptive chassis control, adaptive cruise control, Bi-Xenon Smart Beam adaptive lighting, keyless entry and starting, tri-zone air conditioning and a Pilot Head-up Display which projects information, aircraft-style in the windshield. The order book for the SportCombi opens in March, with first customer deliveries to follow from September. It will significantly broaden the appeal of the new 9-5 range in a segment where Saab, with its tradition for designing versatile vehicles, has enjoyed wagon sales volumes on a par with sedan levels. "The launch of the 9-5 SportCombi is a much-awaited next step in the roll-out of our new product offensive," says Saab Automobile CEO Jan Åke Jonsson. "It will take Saab back into the large wagon segment where we have established a strong presence in many key markets with our previous offering."
