Posted on Friday, August 19, 2011

new lexus gsLexus has presented new generation GS. Designers assure that the new car became better old absolutely on all indicators. At the heart of the car, truth, lies an old platform, but it has undergone to cardinal changes. So, the width of a track has grown on 40 mm in front and on 50 mm behind, that together with the changed suspender, has given new GS the big stability both on a straight line, and in turning movements. The top and bottom levers of a front suspension are executed from aluminum, and silent-blocks are increased in sizes. The design of a rear stretcher is reversed that has allowed to establish a rear multilever suspender of a new design which has improved roadability.

More rigid body and the facilitated components have made possible use in absorbers of oil with smaller viscosity. The course of absorbers became more, and as engineers assure, they cope with small roughnesses better. While GS is presented only with 3,5-liter atmospheric engine V6 which gives out 306 h.p. (a bit later there will be a hybrid and cheaper version with the 2,5-liter unit).

In interior new GS
place will be hardly more than in present. And equipment GS will appear rather magnificent, and engineers haven't forgotten and about technologies which help to save fuel. For example, for the first time in the given class the new power saving up system of climate control S-Flow which automatically defines number of passengers is offered and directs an air flow only to those seats which are really occupied.

new mazda cx-5While about this car will be not possible to make high-grade representation – japanese have published only few images. But one possible to tell precisely: it is the first production Mazda, created as part of a new design concept KODO ("soul movement") which carrier of ideas last year's became prototype Shinari and all the same Minagi . However, world premiere CX-5 will take place in September on a showroom in Frankfurt, and for a month of expectation there will be also additional images.

Don't hurry up in Mazda to open and technical details, only known that CX-5 also becomes the first model of Mazda which will receive all complex of technologies Skyactiv. This is optimized in terms of weight and body and chassis rigidity, and new powertrains. Hence, under the hood should expect a two-liter gasoline engine and diesel engine of 2.2 liters, equipped with two turbochargers.

Under the informal information, gasoline engine Skyactiv-G will develop an order of 157-165 h.p. and 201-210 Nm, and diesel engine Skyactiv-D – 175 h.p. and 420 Nm. But the exact data will appear not earlier than in the end of august. And here with gear boxes all is extremely clear – for CX-5 will be accessible both "automatic machine", and "mechanics". And in both cases – six-step. Also it's rather probable that CX-5 will be offered in two executions – full - and front-wheel.
