Although we aren’t buying the idea that you’ll see tracks across the country filled with weekend warriors in Genesis Halo Projector Headlights Coupes, the short road course did prove revealing. The seating position in cars equipped with power seat bottoms is extremely compromised for anyone over 6 feet tall, and the problem is amplified by having to wear a helmet. I had to recline too far back, seeking a compromise between cramped legs and outstretched arms. It took me a while, but I finally realized why it felt so familiar. The Genesis Halo Projector Headlights Coupe, which lives on the large side of its competitive set, seems to share seating geometry with the Miata. If only I could put the top down on the Genesis Halo Projector Headlights.
Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara has an all wheel drive system which is a need for an off roader. The differential has four modes of operation for different kinds of driving conditions and roads. Power assisted steering wheels with disc brakes on all corners gives better control of the vehicle. The brake system further carries tools like ABS, EBD and Brake Assist which form a complete package to let the driver dominate the beast. The bones of the Grand Vitara are strongly built to form a monocoque structure. This increases the rigidness of the body which can withstand stress during collisions.
One questionable area of increasing fuel economy that I have had mixed results with is fuel additives. Many people have reported that adding a small amount of acetone to the fuel will increase the MPG. I have not noticed any measurable increase from adding acetone. However, occasional use seems to prevent stumble and misfires so it seems that it would increase MPG. Try it by adding one ounce of pure acetone for each ten gallons of fuel.
The TDI engines combine pulling power with pioneering efficiency, with the four-cylinder versions presenting extensive modifications. A new centrifugal pendulum-type absorber (in the 2.0 TDI with 100 kW, 120 kW or 130 kW with quattro drive) in the dual-mass flywheel makes engine running even more refined and quieter at low revs, for even earlier upshifting and savings of up to 0.2 liters per 100 km.
While it costs $6,000 more than a 2010 Scion tC, the Mazdaspeed3 is still an even better performance bargain. Perhaps its most brag-worthy feature on the tuner scene is the new DISI 2.3 liter motor. The “DI” means direct injection, where fuel flows directly into the cylinder without traveling through an air-and-fuel-mixing manifold first.
If anything has really changed in cars, it’s the demand of the driver, more comfort, more room, more convenience. All the little creature comforts that make automobiles more enjoyable to drive. Well let’s not forget safety. Some good advancements are anti-lock brakes, Motor Sport Limited Slip Differentials, front wheel drive and of course air bags, just to name a few.
Another common modification that reduces fuel economy is armor and protection accessories. Your bumper guards and skid plates and rock trails add weight and in some cases disturb the air flow. Consider the effects on fuel economy when making these modifications.
While Alfa was thinking like a 10 year-old boy, Maserati thought like a man for a 10 year-old. And until William realizes this he’ll always be that 10 year-old.
