  • Suzuki SX4 S-Cross 1.6 DDiS Automatic.

    Suzuki’s SX4 S-Cross has been around for a couple of years and has earned a quiet following for blending a practical interior with a certain amount of driving flair, all at a reasonable price. What it’s never had, and no Suzuki for the last 22 years has had, is an automatic gearbox allied with a diesel engine, or at least a proper one rather than a continuously variable transmission. This combination accounts for 16 per cent of sales in the compact SUV market, so Suzuki is keen to tap in to that extra revenue stream by launching an automatic gearbox option for the existing diesel engine. The gearbox uses a twin-clutch setup to engage odd or even gears in advance, depending on whether the driver is accelerating or braking, ensuring a smooth and instantaneous shift of the next required gear. In use it operates exactly as you would expect an automatic gearbox to work, although it’s technically an automated manual system - hydraulics control the clutch and gearshift in the background, leaving you with nothing to do but play with the steering wheel mounted paddles, should you wish to take over control yourself. Systems of this nature are often a tad rough, but Suzuki’s version is remarkably smooth. Each gear is selected without fuss, and there’s no clunking through the system as the clutch is engaged. It’s not notably quick, despite the claims of instant shifting, but the short pause between ratios would only be a problem if this SUV was a more sporting proposition. Not that the S-Cross can’t handle bends. It can, and probably better than you have any right to expect, but it’s never particularly involving or rewarding. Allgrip four-wheel-drive is standard on this edition, with the electronic gadgetry splitting the power between each wheel, and allowing you to get further in tricky conditions than a conventional two-wheel-drive SUV will allow you. Driving to the top of Ben Nevis might be beyond it, due to ground clearance issues, but you’ll certainly make it home when the snow starts falling. The extra weight of the gearbox hits economy slightly, with a meagre 1.4mpg drop compared to the manual version, but the end result is a still an impressive 62.8mpg on the combined cycle. And that doesn’t appear to be an entirely unrealistic figure either, with 50+mpg in normal use being easily achievable while on test. There’s no extra weight on the inside, with disappointingly lightweight plastics making up the bland, but inoffensive dashboard. And with a long list of standard equipment included within the price, there’s not a shortage of space for the driver to enjoy all of the functions. The S-Cross feels light and airy inside, at least up front, but it gets a bit tighter for headroom in the rear. The boot is class competitive, swallowing exactly the same 430 litres of luggage as Nissan’s Qashqai, and is similarly comparable to SsangYong’s new Tivoli. The SX4 S-Cross comes loaded with equipment, offers excellent real-world economy and has the extra traction and reassurance afforded by four-wheeldrive. It might not be the most exciting model in the segment, or even the class leader, but it offers excellent value for money in a generally pleasing package.
  • ZX-10R Winter Test Edition.

    Kawasaki have released a road bike based on the KRT closed season testing livery complete with Kawasaki Racing Team graphics and a sponsor partner road-legal Akrapovic carbon silencer as part of the stylish package. The ZX-10R produces 200 PS and 113.5 Nm from its liquid-cooled 998-cc in-line four engine.
  • 2017 Suzuki SV650.

    Suzuki has announced that the ever-popular SV650 will make its offi- cial return to the States next year, this after Suzuki saw just intermittent success with its Gladius and SFV650 models. Introduced as an early-release 2017 model, the new SV features 140 redesigned components for both the engine and chassis and weighs around 15 pounds less than the outgoing SFV while producing a claimed 75 hp (versus 71 hp for the SFV). Specific changes to the engine include new pistons with resin-coated skirts, a new exhaust system, and staggered intake funnels that improve midrange performance. The bike also features Suzuki’s one-push easystart system, as well as a low-rpm assist mode, which activates the bike’s idle speed control valve at low engine revs to assist with leaving a stop. On the chassis side, Suzuki’s goal was to make the bike more compact and narrow, which it’s accomplished with updates to the frame and changes to the tank that reduce overall tank width by just over 2.5 inches. The new SV650 will be available early summer 2016.

  • 2014 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD
    It's true that Audi is ranked at the top position in the range of luxury cars globally, but now affluent drivers are looking forward to trying out front drive AWD cars and RLX has everything in its core to support each and every luxurious travel requirement. The mediocre look is the only hindrance for the vehicle to hit the top position in the chart; the design is so similar to the sedan models, which cost just half of its price. ...see full review

  • 2014 BMW X5
    Apart from all this, there is this one very significant feature, which could be the biggest and best change in the X5. The power locks are placed on the doors, where they always should have been instead of being hidden among the other center-stack-buttons. And with all this, you should surely trade in your 2nd generation X5 for the all-new 3-gen. ...see full review

  • 2015 Chevrolet Trax
    The sole available transmission though would be the 6-speed Hydra Matic 6T40 that can take its own time for downshifting. Downshifts and upshifts can be commanded manually through a switch that is tap shift and is located in a rather awkward position above the shift lever that is console mounted. The front-wheel drive is quite standard and an all-wheel drive system that is variable is optional. The curb weight is further burdened due to the AWD system, which adds about 200 pounds to the curb weight of the vehicles that are well equipped and take the scales up by 3300 pounds. ...see full review
