The Audi RS 4 Avant uses the same high-revving, normally aspirated V8 engine that powers the RS 5 Coupe. The 4,163 cc powerplant produces 331 kW (450 hp) at 8,250 rpm for a specific output of 108.1 hp per liter. Its maximum torque of 430 Nm (317.15 lb-ft) is available from 4,000 to 6,000 rpm. The responsive V8 with its red-painted cylinder head covers accelerates the RS 4 Avant from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 4.7 seconds on its way to a governed top speed of 250 km/h (155.34 mph). This can be increased to 280 km/h (173.98 mph) upon request.
Hand-built at Audi's plant in Györ, Hungary, the 4.2 FSI engine combines its impressive power with exemplary efficiency, consuming on average less than 11 liters of fuel per 100 km (21.38 U.S. mpg).
With its high efficiency and long top gear, the standard seven-speed S tronic also contributes to the vehicle's good fuel economy. Drivers can let the lightning-fast dual-clutch transmission shift automatically or change gears manually using the selector lever or the paddles on the steering wheel. For explosive starts, drivers can also activate Launch Control, which manages the engagement of the clutch at an optimum starting speed and minimum wheel slip.
2013 Chevrolet Cruze Station Wagon at Geneva 2012
The Cruze station wagon, the latest bodystyle of Chevrolet's top selling
nameplate, celebrates its world premiere at the 82nd International Geneva
Motor Show. The experience gained on the track in the World Touring Car
Championship (WTCC), which the Cruze has won for two years in a row in 2010
and 2011, were put to good use in the further development of the Cruze. The
Cruze station wagon is immediately recognizable as a new variant of the
Chevrolet Cruze, which has conquered the hearts and minds of more than a
million motorists globally and has helped Chevrolet retake the passenger
car crown in the U.S.. Apart from its generous storage space, the new
station wagon features a choice of new powerful and efficient engines as
well as the state-of-the-art MyLink onboard infotainment system. A choice
of five powertrains will be available for the entire Cruze line-up as of
summer 2012. A new 1.4L turbo gasoline,
a new 1.7L diesel and a 2.0L diesel engine with start-stop technology will
now complement the powertrain offer in addition to the current 1.6L and
1.8L gasoline engines.
2013 Volkswagen up! 4-DOOR
The two-door up! by Volkswagen is one of the most important automotive
highlights of the past year. All signs point to a big future for the small
car. In Germany, for example, the up! immediately garnered first place in
its class in registration statistics. Now, in 2012 Volkswagen is raising
the bar by presenting, alongside the eco up!, the four-door version of the
city specialist. In May, the four-door version will arrive at the dealers;
advanced sales already begin on 6 March (both dates in Germany). Market
roll-out of the four-door car will be complete for all of Europe by early
summer. The four-door has the same engines (44 kW / 60 PS and 55 kW / 75
PS), equipment versions (take up!, move up!, high up!, black up!, white
up!) and dimensions (3,540 mm long, 1,641 mm wide without mirrors, 1,478 mm
high) as the two-door cars.
2013 Volkswagen Polo BlueGT
The new Polo BlueGT stands out in its ability to combine superior dynamic
performance with extreme fuel-efficiency. The technical highlight of the
progressive compact car is the cylinder deactivation system, which is being
introduced for the first time in a Volkswagen -- also known as active
cylinder management or ACT. The system was realised with the new 1.4-litre
TSI of the Polo BlueGT. The torque-strong TSI develops a power output of
103 kW / 140 PS, yet has a combined fuel consumption of just 4.7 l/100
km/h* (equivalent to 108 g/km* CO2). If the Polo BlueGT is ordered with the
optional 7-speed dual clutch gearbox (DSG), fuel consumption drops further
to 4.5 l/100 km* -- and, bear in mind, this is a petrol, not a diesel (105
g/km* CO2). Nonetheless, this car, with a top speed of 210 km/h,
accelerates to 100 km/h in just 7.9 seconds. This uncommon coexistence of
efficiency and dynamic performance is enabled by the systematic interplay
of ACT, downsizing (reduced engine displacement plus direct injection and
charging) and BlueMotion Technology (Stop/Start system, battery
regeneration). As such, the Polo BlueGT closes the gap between the Polo 1.2
TSI (77 kW / 105 PS) and the Polo GTI (132 kW / 180 PS). The new car will
already on the market in July.
