Europe car sales speed up after six years of decline – Yahoo News

Britain followed with 9.3 percent growth, Italy at 4.2 percent, Germany 2.9 percent. France managed only 0.3 percent growth. “The situation in Europe is still quite contrasted, but it’s much better than we expected at the beginning of the year, when we forecast two to three percent,” noted Jean-Francois Belorgey, an analyst with consultants EY. “(There is) a rather clear relationship between (national) economic health and market activity.” Britain has been a bright spot in the region, with its economy expected to have grown 3 percent in 2014.

The New Mercedes Self-Driving Car Concept Is Packed Full of Future

The car of the future is smart, as well. It has “Extended Sense,” which knows its location down to the millimeter and can identify its owner from her smartphone. It has a heads-up display that can show street numbers, which restaurants have tables available, how many tickets are left for that night’s show at a theater you’re driving past. The swivel chairs of the future, seen through the lens of a weird Mercedes robot assistant.

Luxury isn’t created equal in recession-hit Japan – Yahoo Finance

Under the hood, theres the latest iteration of Mercedes fuel-cell technology, combining batteries and a hydrogen tank to create a plug-in hybrid. Fully charged up, it can run for around 684 miles, the company says, around 124 of which are all-electric. Two electric motors, each putting out 136 HP, drive the rear wheels, and though its not a small car, the instant torque from standstill – 295 lb-ft in total – means itll do the 0-62 mph run in 6.7 seconds, eventually hitting its 124 mph limiter. Its not Mercedes first experiment with autonomous vehicles, even if its the most dramatically designed.

Year-to-November sales more than quadrupled from a year earlier to 1,224 cars. Maserati Japan’s Cazzoli says he expects to sell 1,300 cars in 2014 and 1,500 in 2015. A renewed lineup and distribution network have also helped drive up sales.

Car Wars! Which German Sports Car Claims The Throne? Mercedes-benz Amg Gt S Vs. Porsche 911 Turbo? – Autospies Auto News

According to them, it goes down something like this. Essentially, the Porsche is tried and true. The 991 Turbo is stupid fast with its PDK gearbox and all-wheel drive set up. But, if I am reading this right, it seems that it’s just a bit clinical. The Mercedes-Benz, on the other hand, is silly fast and feels great around corners though it isn’t as precise.

Review: The Lexus NX is a Personality-Free Luxury Crossover – Bloomberg

It feels heftier than the Acura, too, generally on par with the others in its class. But if you want something a little more unique inside, which is also well-made and well-proven, add the Volvo XC60 to your option list instead. Again, theres nothing bad about the NX, per se. Lexus has built us a tight, reliable crossover.

Basically the A3, 1 series and CLAs are gussied up Honda Civics with lipstick on them. I’ll put my 35k towards a real car. I would probably go with a Buick Regal. It is a good car for the money. 3 Series can be gotten for under 35k, but I wouldn’t want the low end version.

Nikkei Slips Ahead Of Economic Data, Shortened U.s. Trading Week – Yahoo Finance

Don’t expect a cheap Lexus any time soon – SlashGear

2015-lexus-is-250-11

Investors are likely to take profits after recent gains on the back of the Bank of Japan’s easing and China’s interest rate cut on Friday, said Masayuki Doshida, senior market analyst at Rakuten Securities. The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development’s economic outlook report did little to help the mood, saying on Tuesday that Japan needs fiscal consolidation to reduce its debt and contain the risks of the BOJ’s easing policy. Leading exporters were flat as the yen stepped back from lows of 118.57 overnight to trade at 117.70 against the dollar by 0112 GMT. Nikon Corp lost 0.4 percent and Canon Inc was unchanged. Aluminium-related stocks jumped after the Nikkei newspaper reported that Toyota Motor Corp will use the lightweight metal instead of steel in luxury-car bodies.

Black Friday Car Deals of 2014 – Yahoo Finance

Audi, too, has waded into the field with the A3, a more affordable and slightly smaller version of the company’s A3. Both it and the CLA start out at $29,900, though can obviously be specified well in excess of that, such as the S3 sports sedan . Currently, Lexus’ most affordable sedan is the IS 250 , which starts at $36,550, while its CT Hybrid hatchback is the cheapest in the overall line-up, at $32,050. Instead of making its models cheaper, Lexus is instead targeting a younger audience.

Lexus Gets Its Horse Back In The Luxury Car Race

2014 Lexus GS450h Hybrid Sedan Review by Stu Wright :: Northern Colorado Gazette

Nissan has a fairly diverse lineup that includes several car models in addition to pickup trucks and SUVs. The companys adoption of aerodynamic designs and fuel-efficient technology have all made a difference, and in coming years Nissan should be able to lower its score substantially. The popular Leaf EV that Nissan produces is already climbing the charts as a customer favorite, but still has a long way to go before it can match up with the sales of cars like the Prius. The Leaf has probably been a big factor in bolstering Nissans score, which should improve with time. Toyota Breaking into the top three is Toyota, which isnt that much of a surprise to anyone who has been following the auto industry over the past decade.

Exotic cars go on auction at Newport Beach show – The Orange County Register

This 1963 Jaguar XKE roadster is one of many cars up for auction at the Russo and Steele show at the Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort.

car can go from zero to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds. Top speed is reportedly a governor-limited 136 mph. The Lexus GS series of cars has been around since 1993, and is now in its fourth generation configuration for 2014. Lexus, headquartered in Nagoya, Japan, sent as its first automobile to America the big LS series in 1989. The company currently manufactures Japans top-selling make of luxury automobiles. The GS models come in a V-6 sports sedan, a high-performance F sedan, and the hybrid (h) model that I tested. Highway manners of the GS450h are excellent, with an assist from the blind spot monitor to keep the driver out of trouble. Ride on the Dunlop 235/45R18 SP Sport S100 all-season radials (on 18, eighteen split-spoke alloys) is silent and responsive, and the driver can select from four drive modes Eco, Normal, Sport, and Sport+. In winter the driver can select snow, and there is an EV (all-electric) selection to made, too. Lots of options, and lots of performance in the Sport+ mode, especially so for a hybrid vehicle. While in Sport+, the car provides more shock damping, tighter steering, and improved throttle response. And all these handling and power characteristics are present in a car that delivered over 30 mpg for me all week. Official ratings are 29/city and 34/highway (31 overall). The M.S.R.P. of the GS450h is $59,600.00 (base), and options include a luxury package for $5,695.00, blind spot monitor for $700.00, premium Mark Levinson stereo for $1,380.00, hard-disk navigation setup for $1,735.00, power trunk for $400.00, and intuitive park assist for $500.00. Total list price with $910.00 for freight comes to $70,920.00. That luxury package includes heated and cooled, 18-way power front semi-aniline leather seats, heated bamboo and leather steering wheel, LED headlamps, and rear-door manual sunshades (an electric sunshade is present in the back window). The 330 watt stereo includes 17 speakers with 7.1 surround sound architecture. The screen for the navigation is gigantic, at 12.3, with split-screen capability, and controlling its applications is done with a mouse on the console.
