The BMW X2 Concept

If BMW chose the 2016 Paris Motor Show event to unveil the X2, then there has to be something special about it. As with any other model that BMW has rolled out, the X2 too is a model that has amazed people with its appearance. However, experts who know that beauty is only skin deep, are of the opinion that the car has more substance than just that. If hints dropped by the company are to be trusted, then you can expect a car that has been maximized for its functionality. After all, if BMW thought its new addition to the X series worthy of the Paris Motor Show, then there should be a good reason for it! As of now, however, we can only go by guesses as BMW has not officially revealed much information yet.

‘Enjoyment and practicality’

Does this sound like something you are looking for in a car? Then maybe BMW was thinking of a market made of customers like you when it came up with this model. Senior Vice President BMW Group Design, Adrian van Hooydonk, revealed that this new concept has been specially designed for people who are ‘active’, and are looking for that perfect combination of practicality and enjoyment. Well, the words ‘active’, ‘enjoyment’, and ‘practicality’ may sound vague because everyone can have a different idea of what those words mean. However, perhaps you have got the fair idea of what Hooydonk is trying to say. Anyhow, what we can infer from this is that this SUV has been designed for adventuring families who are looking for a bit of daily commuting, as well as regular road-trips.

Snugly fits between the X1 and X3

The X2 fits perfectly in what anyone would describe as a ‘coupe’. BMW fans who have been closely following its models can tell you why the X2 makes such a great model. While the X1 was perceived to be more of a ‘box-like’ wagon, the X3 is a bit too ‘tall’ for people. The X2, needless to say, combines the two, thereby fitting perfectly between the two. This smart move by BMW aims at satisfying that segment of the market which was in a way disappointed by the limitations of the X1 and X3.

Overall, the BMW X2 is a model that combines aggression with sleekness. Enthusiasts are now waiting excitedly to know more about what’s going to be under the hood as well.

  1. Emission Free concepts: This is the single most important feature of this year’s show. Well, the emergence of electric cars means that you can expect emission-free driving in future. As of now, all car manufacturers have unanimously bowed down to the market’s increasing concern towards the environment. As a result, all car companies are increasing their focus on developing technology that will ensure emission-free functioning. The Paris Motor Show 2016 saw some truly amazing emission-free models. Companies that took the show by storm with their emission free plans were Mercedes EQ Generation, Volkswagen’s ID concept, and of-course, Tesla.
  1. Technology is going to an all-new level: The plans that car manufacturers have for the technology that will be used by their models is phenomenal. Companies like Tesla and Mercedes have announced plans that when executed, will result in the emergence of cars that are highly sophisticated. Companies have unveiled ideas that will change the manner in which we think about of car infotainment, safety, autonomy and other such technology.
  1. Manufacturers are stepping up the designing: One feature that just could not be missed is how the appearance of each model was stunning. It looks like each of the manufacturers have taken it as a personal mission to launch cars that are built to kill with their looks. Especially notable are Mercedes’ Maybach and Generation EQ models, and the Volkswagen ID which has a very unusual, but futuristic appearance.

  1. The absentees: Aston Martin, Lamborghini and Ford have not unveiled any model this season. However, executive from all three manufacturers were present at the show. When the rest of of the manufacturers have made some splendid launches, it is a matter of curiosity as to why these companies have not done so.

Perhaps they have something extraordinary in store for the 2017 Paris Motor Show?

Lewis Hamilton’s Current F1 Season Looks Very Bumpy

If you have followed Formula 1 star Lewis Hamilton’s performances carefully, then you’d be well aware of the hard times that he has fallen into. The 31-year old British Formula 1 racer’s steady rise to the top was harshly marred by an engine failure in his most recent race. This not only got the racer out of the race, but also sent his aspirations to reach the top, spiraling down.

“A test of will”

Hamilton himself believes that his setbacks are nothing but a ‘test of will’.  He said that there is a ‘higher force’ at play in his life right now. He believes that this higher power is trying to lead him to something deeper, and that he has to now accept the challenging and face it rather than lose heart. His failure at the Malaysian Grand Prix has led him to believe that he has hit a point in life where his ‘spirit is being tested’, and has affirmed that rather than get discouraged by it, he will ‘get up and fight’.

The racer seems to be very optimistic about this hard phase. He believes that life is about how a person gets up after falling. As such, he says that no matter what, he will not give up. He also acknowledged the role that others have played in reaching this far in his career by saying that it is not him who feels the pain of what recently happened, but also his mechanics. He said that despite this recent failure, he and everyone who has played an important role in his career will reflect deeply about everything, and come back, stronger.

This was not the first that the Formula 1 star has faced a failure due to technical issues. During the Spanish Grand Prix, he collided with teammate Nico Rosberg, thereby losing his chance at winning the title then too. The same feelings that he went through back then is what he is currently going through, he revealed.

Bumpy road ahead

Although Hamilton seems very hopeful about the future, circumstances seem to have gotten a little more difficult for him. The tough competition he is facing from other contenders like Red Bull and Ferrari is just one. A more serious issue is the rather disappointing start that Mercedes is giving him in the race. But perhaps the biggest cause of concern is the strict rules that F1 has in place that restrict a driver to just five power units in this season. Having almost exhausted this allowance by the race authorities, Hamilton has some serious challenges to face in the coming days.

Tennessee Vols Go On 38-run Blitz to Beat Florida Gators

vols-1

For 14 years, the Florida Gators have come out on top of the Tennessee Vols in the NCAA. The streak was finally broken on Saturday as the Vols made a stunning comeback that included a 38-run streak to beat the Gators 38-28 at home. After 11 consecutive losses to the Gators, the Vols looked they were about to go down again as the score was 21-0 right before halftime. A dominating performance after half-time ensured that the Vols remained undefeated for the 10th consecutive match. The streak was started at the tail end of last season and the win against one their biggest rivals ensured that it continued.

With a 102,455 fans watching on, the Gators took a commanding lead with 3 early touchdowns. Backup quarterback Austin Appleby scored all 3 of these and had things stayed that way, the Gators would’ve won yet again. Joshua Dobbs was the savior for the Vols. In the first half of the game, Dobbs had completed a miserable 7 out of 20 passes for 84 yards. Right before the break, Aaron Medley scored a filed goal and it seemed to energize both Dobbs and the rest of the team. Dobbs ended the game after 4 touchdown passes with 319 yards and 1 ground touchdown with 80 yards. Both these feats are a career best for the Vols man. Overall, the Vols gained 487 yards throughout the game. Before this game, the average for the Gators to concede was 127 yards per game.

Post-Match Reactions

Speaking of the victory, Vols coach Butch Jones commended his players’ character and emphasized just how good their program is. He also commended the fans’ patience for sticking around when the team was down. Dobbs also commented after the game and noted the importance of Medley’s field goal, late in the second quarter. He also implied that the comeback was necessary as they were shooting themselves in the foot in the first 2 quarters.

Florida coach Jim McElwain expressed his disappointment after the game and said that his team just let the Vols in. It’s hard to argue with that statement as the first down for the Gators in the second half came with only 6 minutes on the clock. Vols’ running back Jalen Reeves-Maybin, on the other hand, saw the victory in the game as a “stepping stone” to make Tennessee get back to the top.

Stanford Put on Late Show to Beat UCLA

stanford-1

No 7 ranked Stanford Cardinals left it late to beat the UCLA Bruins for the 9th consecutive time in the NCAA. With 24 seconds left in the game,  J.J. Arcega-Whiteside caught Ryan Burns’ pass and rallied for a game-winning touchdown. The game ended 22-13 to Stanford and UCLA’s losing streak against their rivals goes on for the 9th consecutive year.

Stanford quarterback Josh Rosen had an average game as he began the game quite slowly. He misread situations in the first two quarters of the game, that could’ve led to 2 touchdowns. He made up for in the remainder of the game with some impressive throws. He completed 18 of 27 passes for 248 yards and a touchdown.

Last-minute loss

UCLA held their defensive shape for 59 minutes and then mistakes cost them the game. Stanford running back rushed for 138 yards despite the Cardinals’ poor start to the game. With 2:05 left on the clock, Stanford got the ball back and made the most of it as they put up an impressive 70-yard drive to finish off UCL

Considering that they had never held on to a lead for more than 6 minutes against Stanford, UCLA suffered another grave loss. Speaking after the game, coach Jim Mora commended the defense but called the loss an awful one that stings. Nate Iese, UCLA’s tight end, had a decent game where gained 89 receiving yards, 5 catches and a touchdown. All of it went it vein in the end but the Bruins have a reason to be optimistic.

Stanford receiver J.J. Arcega-Whiteside attributed the win to maintaining their composure throughout the game. He admitted that mistakes were made but noted that the team came together when necessary to get the job done. After the game, Rosen stated that they would definitely play UCLA again this season at the Pac-12 Title game. He went on to say that they were one of the best teams in the conference and that he was “a million percent” sure of playing them again.

UCLA do have a right to be hopeful as they made changes in the off-season to bulk up their defense and match the strength of the Stanford team. This move might not have worked in their first 3 matches but it definitely worked this match. If they had held on a little longer, it would’ve been an historic win. UCLA are now 2-2 this season while Stanford remain unbeaten.

College Football Week 4 Recap

week4-1

An exciting weekend of college football has come to an end with the Top 7 rankings remaining unchanged. Most of the teams below this number have experienced shifts in their ranking after an action-packed weekend. The Tennessee Vols’ eye-catching victory against the Gators was a major talking point but there were also other great games played out. Let’s take a look the winners and losers of last week’s action.

Winners:

The Vols

Tennessee Vols were the biggest winners this weekend as they went on a 38 run blitz to beat longtime rival Florida Gators 38-28. The comeback from being down 21-3 right before halftime to winning emphatically after scoring 38 points in a row, is a great story in itself. Add to this, that it was the first time the Vols beat the Gators in 11 matches and the story writes itself. Joshua Dobbs, the man involved in all 5 touchdowns, earned a lot of praise and rightfully so.

The Wolverines

Michigan Wolverines are opening up their chances of getting into the Big Ten as they continue their spree of dominance. They beat Penn State 49-10 and coach Jim Harbaugh made sure they had a good start this game, unlike against Colorado last week.

Virginia

The Cavaliers earned their first win of the season in style by scoring 3 touchdowns in the final 6 minutes of the game. Despite the losses in previous weeks, it is clear ti see that progress has been made. They earned a hard fought 49-35 win against Central Michigan and coach, Branco Mendenhall, will be pleased.

Other winners for the week include Virginia Tech, North Carolina, Wake Forest and Stanford.

Losers

As with every week, there are bound to be losers but some have suffered greater losses than others. The Gators are one of the biggest losers this week. To have a 21-3 lead at halftime, against a team that you have not lost to for 14 years, and then let it all go in the next 2 quarters, is damning.  The Gators were expected to wrap up the game and instead ended with a 28-38 loss.

Notre Dame also turned in a disappointing performance as their defensive problems become more evident. They lost 38-35 to Duke and any hopes of making it to the playoffs are hanging by a thread. LSU, Oregon, Northern Illinois and Georgia were this week’s other losers.

Mercedes Maybach 6 Concept

maybach-1

If cars that are built to shock you into silence is your thing, then you should be aware of the Mercedes Maybach 6 Concept. Unmatched and unrivaled, this model is a whole new idea, a whole new vision of high-end luxury cars. The Maybach has already gained a reputation of being the ‘car of your dreams’.

The Maybach 6 was unveiled this August in Monterey Car Week in California. So what makes this car so special?

Looks:

Beauty maybe skin deep, but not in the case of Maybach. While many would think that a car’s appearance is not as important as its performance, Looks just had to be the first of the three for this beast. The reason for this is that the car’s appearance is something that is totally futuristic in style. The sleek cuts with the highly refined design makes it look as though it’s a miniature spaceship taken from a sci-fi movie. The most special feature, however, is the quaint retro look it has despite the highly modern design. The enormous hood and low roof are a perfect combination of the best that the ‘old days’ have to offer and the most creative ideas the future.

Performance:

The Maybach is an all-electric car with a shocking hosrepower of over 700bhp! The monster comes to life with four electric motors and a 80kWh battery pack. Being a Mercedes, you can expect that the power from the motors is equally distributed among the four wheels. The megacoupe boasts of reaching a speed 62mph in within 4 seconds. The Maybach has been designed to reach a top-speed of 155bhp. These are some really serious features in the power department.

Comfort:

It goes without saying that if Mercedes has taken up the challenge to create a legend like the Maybach, then the comfort features wouldn’t be something they’d ignore. The interiors of the car scream luxury and ooze comfort. With high-quality luxury Elm-wood trims and top-notch leather incorporated into the interiors, you would feel as though you are back to those days of elegance, style and highly personalized comfort. Couple this with the wide range of highly advanced technology on the inside, the Maybach 6 is going to be a new standard in luxury car manufacture.

Rich in looks, high on performance and sinfully comfortable, Mercedes may have pushed luxury automobile manufacture to a whole new level, impossible to beat.

Mazda CX 3

For the always-on-the-go driver, few cars can actually lived up to expectations as Mazda’s CX 3. This Crossover quickly gained popularity not only for its highly refined driving experience, but also for the functionality it has to offer. Compact, powerful and comfortable, the CX 3 provides the best option in the market for people who want to grocery shop at 10 am, and race around the empty city streets at 9pm. Here are five things that make the CX 3 a special car.

cx3-1

Great performance:

The CX 3 is powered by Skyactiv-design 2.0 liter four cylinder engine. The engine promises a power output of 146-horsepower coupled with a torque of the same amount. These numbers are good enough if you are considering a car that is meant for every-day use on city streets. The power features ensure a great performance while on road, quickly picking up speed from where you halt.

Compact:

The car is more compact than the other models in this series. This mean better maneuverability and easy-to-manage features in heavy traffics and sharp cuts. The last thing you would want is to be stuck in a crowded street or road with a big model. As a car that has been designed for everyday use, the size is just perfect to heighten its functionality.

Cargo space:

For a model as compact as it is, the CX 3 gives ample space for storing luggage. The Hatchback Cargo area is modestly proportioned and can easily accommodate the moderate amount of luggage you would carry when using this carry. Again, everyday commute has been focused on while designing the cargo space. As such, passenger comfort has not been compromised on to increase cargo space.

Design:

The SUV has been built on a unique design. Rather than remodel it based on existing plans, Mazda engineers have endowed the CX 3 with its own unique features. The most striking aspect of the car is the subtle way in which it has been given a dominating, muscular appearance, while retaining its compact and humble features. The large wheels and high ground clearance add to the car’s overall functionality.

Comfortable interiors:

The CX 3 has interiors that give a feeling of high-end comfort to the passengers despite being budget-friendly. The interior shave been designed with high-quality material, enhanced to give a very heightened sense of comfort.

A lot of other things makes the CX 3 a great model to own. A winner on most counts, it is surely a keeper!

2017 C-Class Cabriolet

cclass_cab-1

If a sportscar meets luxury, then it will definitely look something like the Mercedes C-class Cabriolet. The convertible was unveiled in the 2016 Geneva car show. Mercedes-Benz already has a strong reputation as the manufacturer of some of the best models in the automobile world. With the C-class range, Mercedes has given a whole new dimension to launching cars that are simply amazing in terms of looks.

High in power

The C- Class Cabriolet has an engine that has a very heightened response. The car comes in these options:

The C300 has a 2.0 liter twin-turbo engine at its heart. The engine gives an output of 241bhp and 270 b-ft torque. The car has 9-speed transmissions and can rev up to 5500 rpm.

The AMG C43 variant is again a 9-speed transmission model just like the C300, but with an ability to shift between transmissions faster. The engine is a 3.0 liter V6 motor. The engine has an output of 362bhp at 5500 rpm with a 384lb-ft torque. This model can touch a speed of 60 in little over 4 seconds.

The C63 has much more power than the above two. Powered by a 4.0 twin-turbo V8 engine, this car gives an output of 469bhp and 479lb-ft torque. The C63 S variant has an output of 503 bhp and 516lb-ft torque.

All models are powerful and make revving up an absolute pleasure for the driver. For drivers who have a taste in style and elegance, yet are looking for an amazing experience in sportscar driving, the Cabriolet gives the perfect options to choose from.

High in style

cclass_cab-2

The Cabriolet has been designed to offer the perfect combination of luxury and a sporty look. All the variants are convertibles. The roof opens and closes quickly at the touch of a button, and do not occupy too much space at the back when folded. The Cabriolet has a minimalistic-yet-majestic looking appearance, with a high-set, solid looking body. The Cabriolet has something of a classical feel about it- the steep windshield and long hood add to the overall ‘old-school’ retro look of the models. However, the sharp creases, sleek headlight and tail-lamps bring the design of the car to a futuristic look.

The interiors have been inlaid with high-quality French-stitched leather that do the double-duty of looking elegant and heightening comfort at the same time. With the roof covering the interior, sound is completely eliminated so that driving this model would be an experience similar to cruising through the air.
