Pin-trick

FIAT 500 0.9 8V TWINAIR thirsty FLEA With a displacement of just 0.875 liters is the engine of Fiat Twin-Air is a prime example of modern downsizing. Not only is the engine capacity, but also the number of cylinders has been reduced. What set other engines in this power class (86 hp) to four cylinders working in the Fiat 500 0.9 8V TwinAir only two pistons. Does the micro-motor is controlled by a turbocharger. In theory and practice for the test fuel consumption data to make this effort paid. But what about in practice? Is it possible to achieve the EU's consumption actually? And how much of the turbo generators during long full throttle passages swallow? To answer these questions, we asked eight downsizing candidates from different classes to a large consumption test. In addition to the usual standard round, we also identified on a 100-kilometer-long road trip (Tempo 90) a minimum consumption. For the measurement of the maximum consumption, it also went for 100 kilometers at high speed on an empty highway. More car-theme: The free newsletter of AUTOZEITUNG EU REACH STATEMENT Not only the Fiat 500 0.9 8V TwinAir the result is surprising. Even with very restrained lead foot, Eco Mode, and compliance with the recommendation to shift the grumpy two-cylinder 4.7-liter approved on the stage road. With similarly cautious driving style with a short full-throttle percentage on the standard 5.6 liter round are more realistic than the average consumption in the log. Who in the Fiat, however, wants to quickly get from A to B to be reckoned with unbridled thirst for 100 kilometers, the highway TwinAir approved then 13.8 liters - more than the full-blown VW Golf with 122 hp. Mark Schoenfeld consumption EU consumption: 4.1 liters per 100 km CO2 emissions: 95 g / km AZ-fuel consumption: 5.6 liters per 100 km Minimum consumption: 4.7 liters per 100 km Maximum consumption: 13.8 liters per 100 km

Porsche 911 Carrera Test

Through his previous appearances in the editorial, the new Porsche 911 Carrera S has developed the reputation of an executioner in a class. The S with 3.8-liter displacement and 400 hp is simply so great that one wonders whether a little fear would not be appropriate to come before the turbo with 500 hp plus X. Before the roll at the dealership, is there in the shape of the normal 911 is already a tamer alternative. 0.4 liters less displacement than the S, this penalty and 50 hp less power. 350 So. This number does not sound like a thin soup. It suggests rather the cost-benefit analysis of whether the increased performance justifies the Carrera S just under 14,400 euros extra charge. LESS EQUIPMENT The price difference is a result of course, not only from the extra horsepower of the S. The buyer of a Carrera Cabriolet has among other things, larger brakes, 20-inch wheels, adaptive suspension, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), with the mechanical rear axle or the flap exhaust system has two dual tailpipes give the Carrera S has the standard equipment. Very much of it may be - to order as an extra, a rollover protection system is, however, here as there series - at a good price of course. Well, we think it was an accident but not really. Therefore this car has been at a moderate pace far too safe to drive. The brakes as to delay the test vehicle with carbon ceramic discs, vehemently, with values ​​less than 33 meters from 100 km / h, because nothing can ever burn. And like the coupe is also building the firmer convertible into curves so much grip that alone is hardly a failure to abzufl GOATS. Still, you can always and everywhere to be fast in this convertible, which is extremely confusing, especially closed. Already provides for the engine, the rear Belfort grumbles, and screams as it is the duty of every 911th SPEED? LET HIM TURN And one must go penalty, of course. So numbers: zero-to-century: 4.8 seconds. Zero to one hundred and eighty: 13.9 seconds. If he can turn, the 911 is so very good, but without the brute force of a Carrera S to unfold. The dictated - 46 kg lighter than tested Coupe - 3.9 and 10.8 seconds recently in the measurement electronics. The worlds are also felt, with the passage of the better S from low and medium engine speeds greater role in everyday life. It lacks the Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet obvious to displacement and torque (390 Nm instead of 440), which attempts to compensate for the double-clutch transmission through diligent work done. It switches back mainly from very high-ratio seventh gear, even on gentle slopes or on foot on the accelerator gently stretched early, selects also like to cheer times now the fifth or even fourth, and then lets the boxers. More Auto News: The free newsletter of AUTOZEITUNG Then it goes forward but with verve. But the sovereign does not really, if you must give everything just to quickly overtake a committed piloted diesel sedan that has been friendly place on the highway. Circular route is pleasing to the consumer behavior of this rigid and open Penalty: With about ten liters of it is covered well in the music, more than 13 liters in the area of ​​attack - and the test consumption of 10.3 liters of Super Plus is simply outstanding. Short Summary: This car is not the best 911, it was the most plausible - and thanks to his perfect, very quiet hood for long distance as good as the 911 coupe.

Meanwhile, BMW drives forward the worldwide sales, behind Audi and Mercedes in 2011 was only at number three. Even the returns could be better. But that will change again, think Mercedes CEO Dieter Zetsche ("The building has fighting spirit") and blows to the rapid catch-up: Not later than 2020, so his announcement, the brand with the star in the premium league play again in front.

The new M performance model uses namely a straight six cylinder, which offers about 320 hp with turbo pressure. The sprint to 100 km will be completed in about five seconds. A cluster is not the 1st planned - but will start the first large MPV from BMW, the September, 2015. A front-wheel drive, and later to have four-wheel drive. And a typical BMW: not a good high roof box, but Sporty what the family connection. Approximately 4.30 meters long with room for five and luggage properly. Based on the new front-wheel drive architecture, the Company's use of 2014 and the next-generation Mini. And Mercedes? Set in the Gulf area fully on the new 4.29 meters long Mercdes A-Class, which starts in September, initially as a five-door hatchback.

The German manufacturers can not splash out in Paris and show many new products and studies that make a visit to the French capital even more rewarding than ever. PARIS MOTOR SHOW 2012: HIGHLIGHTS OF VW GOLF VII TO VEGA FACEL Perhaps the most important novelty is the year of the new VW Golf VII, which is based on the modular transverse matrix (MQB), the Volkswagen Group and will be shown in Paris for the first time.

More car-theme: The free newsletter of AUTOZEITUNG Mazda is in Paris before the production version of the study Takeri. The new Mazda 6 will differ from the optically hardly successful concept car and will be significantly lighter than its predecessor. As the best for last: Should the current rumors come true for a return of the French tradition Facel Vega brand, it is likely that all other manufacturers are very difficult to remain as a highlight of the Paris Motor Show 2012 in memory.
