Feel safety in Volvo XC60


Volvo wants to adopt new strategy regarding the safety of its vehicles, so it will cut-price for its crossovers, which use new crash avoidance technology.
If you buy a Volvo you can have a real surprise- an unexpected bonus that consists in a cut into the insurance premium. Volvo Australia announced that they try and win cut-price car insurance for buyers who buy a version of the car maker’s latest-generation, mid-sized crossover vehicle, the XC60 that goes on sale next year.

2010 Chevy Volt

GM has presented its intention to offer the Chevrolet Volt electric vehicle, by presenting it. This electric car will be on market since 2010. Chevrolet Volt will be offered with a T-shaped lithium-ion battery pack that after few hours will be able to run 40 miles without any other charge. This car fuel will not cost that much (at least GM said that) and to turn it on will be offered a small gasoline engine to generate enough electricity to drive it on a long journey.
The car will go from 0 to 100 km/h in about 9 seconds. The battery pack is where the “transmission tunnel” would be in a conventional rear-wheel- drive car, meaning that the batteries don’t take up cargo space as they do in many hybrid cars. Although it has a rounded front, the back end of the car has a sharp, angular shape. In the rear, where air flows together as it trails off from the vehicle, sharp angles help smooth air flow.

Citroen C3 Picasso- The Magic Box

Citroen C3 Picasso will be presented at Paris Motor Show in 2009 and it seems that will offer more creativity than the previous model. The new model seems to impress by its innovative design and amazing technology.
Citroen C3 Picasso has a pure and functional body styling which expresses its fundamental purpose, that is passenger comfort at all times in all situations.
I bet you are interested in new Picasso’s dimensions, so I won’t let you wait too long: the car is 4.08 m long, 1.62 m high and 1.73 wide.
Depending on the level of trim and the engine, the C3 Picasso comes with 15-inch wheels and 195/60 R15 Michelin Energy Saver tires, 16-inch wheels with 195/55 R16 Michelin Energy Savers, or 17-inch wheels with 205/45 R17 Michelin Pilot Exalto 2.
What really impresses me is that the C3 Picasso is also fitted with a range of high-performance, economical engines: 2 new generation petrol units – the VTi 95 and VTi 120 – and 2 diesel models, the HDi 90 and HDi 110 DPFS, renowned for their driving pleasure and efficiency.
