The all new Q5 quattro Design and the Q5 quattro Sport

Don’t leave anything to chance. Whether it comes to comfort, style, or dynamics, the Audi Q5 will win you over from the first moment. Expressive appearance, powerful drive, and pioneering technology. Your options are just as diverse. Every day anew – with the Audi Q5.

Designed to move.

Every detail of the Audi Q5 features the characteristic Q design and embodies momentum and superiority. This includes the distinctive bonnet and the gently sloping roof line as well as the outer mirrors mounted onto the shoulder and the narrow window line.

 

All in full view.

Thanks to the Audi virtual cockpit, progress is visible. The fully digital instrument cluster with a high-resolution 12.3-inch display shows a great deal of driver-relevant information. From speed to navigation to communications – choose from a variety of display options. The large, slim 8.3-inch colour display of the MMI navigation plus will win you over with clarity and its simple operating concept.

 

It shows its size.

The Audi Q5 is sure to impress with a generous amount of space as well as practical loading and storage options. With the remote backrest, the rear seat backs can be folded, thereby increasing the boot capacity to 1,550 l. The sensor-controlled baggage space release button simplifies loading. If your hands are full, you can open the boot by moving your foot. You can even stow heavy baggage with ease.

 

 SQ5 TFSi

 

Ready for sportiness.

 

Fuel consumption combined: 8.5-8.3 l / 100 km; CO₂ emissions: 195-189 g / km¹

The new Audi SQ5 TFSI impresses with its breathtaking performance, practicality and progressive technology and equipment. The newly developed 3.0-liter V6 TFSI engine delivers 260 kW (354 hp) and catapults the Audi SQ5 TFSI in 5.4 seconds from 0 to 100 km / h, accompanied by a striking motor sound. Clear contours, S-specific air intakes in titanium black matt and sporty door panels accentuate the Q-Design with S-characteristics.

Imposing power.

The V6 TFSI high-performance engine with 260 kW (354 hp) mobilizes a maximum torque of 500 Nm and sprints in 5.4 seconds from 0 to 100 km / h. The top speed is 250 km / h. The distinctive sound of the S-specific exhaust system with double-flow double-endrohroics underlines the performance of the engine. Various technologies support the sporty driving behavior and support the efficiency of the engine.

The new combustion process is particularly efficient: the so-called B-cycle process, with its artificially shortened compression, allows a motor process with a significantly higher basic compaction. The expansion phase, which is considerably longer in relation to the compression, thus achieves efficiency advantages and increases the efficiency of the motor.

 

In the partial load range, the Audi valvelift system allows a very short intake opening duration of 130 degrees crank angle with simultaneous early closing of the intake valves. Thus the intake phase is shortened. At higher loads, however, the system switches to camshaft contour with a longer opening time and a larger valve lift of the intake valves. Thus, the engine runs at normal compression ratio and maximum throughput.

 

Welcome to the interior.

 

The interior impresses at first sight with infotainment equipment and high-quality workmanship. The standard equipment has been upgraded: sports seats in Alcantara / leather combination with S-embossing and illuminated entry panels with S-lettering are just as standard as the 3-spoke sports leather steering wheel with multifunction plus and S-emblem.

 

Optionally, for example, infotainment options such as the Audi virtual cockpit or design details such as decal inserts are available in Carbonatlas. If desired, the three-part rear seat bench can also be adjusted longitudinally and in the inclination. Depending on the position of the rear bench, the luggage compartment has a capacity of 500 to 610 liters. With a fully folded backrest, a maximum of 1,550 liters are available. Further standard features are the 20-inch aluminum cast wheels in the 5-twin-spokes star design

Pure Adrenalin – Peugeot 308 GTi & GT

Peugeot-pure-adrenilin

THE NEXT CHAPTER IN AN
ICONIC LEGACY IS NOW AVAILABLE
IN NEW ZEALAND, WITH THE ARRIVAL
OF THE NEW 308 GT AND 308 GTi
BY PEUGEOT SPORT.


Peugeot New Zealand has welcomed two new high performance versions to the extensive 308 range: the dynamic New 308 GT and iconic 308 GTi by Peugeot Sport. These new versions reflect Peugeot’s global move up-market and effortlessly embrace Peugeot’s racing heritage.

 

“The GT and GTi badges have long been synonymous with our history and their return marks a real turning point for the brand”, said Simon Rose Division Manager for Peugeot New Zealand.”

 

“To have accomplished a record for power-to-weight ratio in the 270hp 308 GTi model is testament to what can be accomplished by developing a high performance chassis and engine, tuned in conjunction with the motorsport arm of the business; Peugeot Sport.”

 

The new 308 GTi generated great anticipation among enthusiasts ahead of its arrival in New Zealand; a modern interpretation and celebration of Peugeot’s lengthy history of producing true performance hot hatches. From the legendary 205 GTi to the latest 208 GTi and RCZ R, Peugeot has sold its high performance models to over 800,000
customers worldwide.

 

Peugeot Sport – the company’s in-house tuning division devoted exclusively to developing the brand’s most high performance models – used their engineers’ and motorsport expertise to create the 308 GTi with the sole ambition of creating the ultimate hot hatch driving experience. The 308 GTi by Peugeot Sport offers drivers a performance enhanced 1.6-litre turbo engine, producing 270hp (200kW) coupled with a 6-speed manual gearbox, Torsen limited-slip differential and improved chassis.

 

The 308 GTi sets a new record for powerto-weight ratio in its segment, at just 4.46kg per unit of horsepower, and accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in just 6.0 seconds, covering 1,000 metres from a standing start in 25.3 seconds.

 

The power plant is the most efficient in its category too, capping CO2 at 139g/km or 6.0-litres/100km.

 

Meanwhile the 308 GT possesses all the strong points of the 308 range while adopting a sportier look.

 

This car is built to be an efficient daily driver that is still capable of morphing into a bundle of fun at the press of a button.

 

The new GT is fitted with a 2.0-litre BlueHDi 180 engine, EAT6 automatic transmission and delivers 180hp (133kW) at 3750 rpm, with its maximum torque of 400 Nm arriving at just 2000rpm. With exceptional fuel consumption of just 4.0-litres/100km (combined), the GT offers superb driving pleasure and efficiency.

 

“The entire Peugeot dealer network is extremely excited to have a true performance hot-hatch worthy of the GTi badge back in the business,” concludes Simon Rose.

 

Available at authorised Peugeot New Zealand dealers, the new Peugeot 308 GT is priced from $49,990 + ORC and the Peugeot 308 GTi by Peugeot Sport from $58,990 + ORC.

Car & SUV reviews the new 2016 RAM 2500 Laramie

RAM_2500_Laramie_NZ-Review

Driven: 2016 RAM 2500 Laramie 4×4 Double Cab

 

Posted by Robert Barry on July 21st, 2016

 

The factory-backed right-hand drive RAMs journey to Australia and New Zealand has taken longer than the distributor would have liked but the wait has been worth it.

 

This American Beauty started life at the Saltillo Assembly Plant in Mexico before shipping to American Special Vehicles (ASV) in Melbourne where it undergoes a body-off-frame remanufacturing process to OEM standard into a right-hand drive vehicle for Australian and New Zealand buyers.

 

This process is not an aftermarket conversion, but a full factory backed process where Fiat Chrysler is allowing… (read the full review here)

The Subaru Levorg has arrived in NZ

Subaru-Levorg-deal

Subaru launches all-new Levorg performance sports wagon in NZ

 

Subaru’s all-new turbocharged, Levorg has been launched in New Zealand, offering style, substance and sophistication in a sports wagon package.

 

The spiritual successor to the much missed Legacy GT wagon, Levorg’s sports wagon exterior dimensions cleverly clothe a spacious cabin in which classy trim and leading-edge technology combine to produce a classic Subaru All Wheel Drive experience.

 

Subaru of New Zealand’s Authorised Dealerships will be offering one Levorg specification, the 2.0GT-S, from mid-July. This smart, sleek model hosts a wide variety of premium features including Subaru’s EyeSight® Technology, Bilstein suspension and blue stitched interior trim.

 

The Subaru Levorg 2.0GT-S highlights include:

 

○ Linear, efficient turbocharged performance – Direct Injection Boxer engine
○ Sport Lineartronic™ Subaru Lineartronic Transmission (SLT) – to suit every style, with optional Manual Mode for enthusiastic drivers
○ Third generation EyeSight® – Subaru’s significant safety story advances further
○ Vision Assist Features – combined with EyeSight® to produce a super-safe package
○ Versatility – spacious wagon packaging offers multiple configurations to suit every lifestyle
○ Symmetrical All Wheel Drive with Subaru rally providen heritage, performance and reliability

 

Levorg’s sporty character is powered by the proven, efficient, turbocharged 2.0-litre Direct Injection engine, producing 197 Kilowatts of power at 5600 rpm and 350 Newtonmetres of torque from 2400-5200 rpm.

 

Levorg is available exclusively with the eight speed Subaru Lineartronic™ Transmission (SLT), with Subaru Intelligent (SI) Drive, that features multiple performance modes to suit a wide range of driving styles, from sporty to economical.

 

The Levorg 2.0GT-S is priced at $56,990 (RRP).

 

Subaru of New Zealand’s Managing Director, Wallis Dumper, says “Levorg is an exciting and superior all-new sports wagon package that combines turbocharged driving performance, nimble handling, safety and versatility in an optimal body size.

 

“It’s innovative, and embodies both sports and touring performance. Also given the Levorg’s success in international Subaru markets to date, we are optimistic about its appeal factor, given its suitability for Kiwis,” Mr Dumper says.

 

“Our high specification model Levorg is perfect for New Zealanders who don’t want an SUV or sedan. Despite the global trend towards SUV ownership, which Subaru of New Zealand is following with its predominant SUV sales, we recognise that not everyone wants one. Passionate drivers enjoy the handling of a performance vehicle. Sales of the new generation Subaru Legacy sedan and the ongoing success of the WRX prove that there is still a strong market for driver’s cars,” he says.

 

“The Subaru Levorg is an exotic mix of wagon utility – where owners benefit from the wide cabin space and comfort – combined with the handling, dynamic performance and style of a sports car. We also believe the 2.0GT-S is better value than its Euro rivals and it still comes with the security of Subaru’s All Wheel Drive system.”

 

Mr Dumper adds that the Levorg is the “spiritual successor” to the fourth generation turbocharged Legacy GT wagon in size – yet is larger in every key dimension. Levorg has the same external width as the fifth generation Legacy.

 

Levorg is Subaru’s first all-new model since BRZ was launched in 2012. Mr Dumper says it has been a much anticipated new addition to the Subaru of New Zealand stable, after it was launched globally last year.

 

“When the Subaru Levorg was launched in Europe, its sales figures showed it was proving to be extremely popular, particularly with those who have previously owned Legacy GT wagons. Given that Levorg is a performance wagon, which is similar in size to early generation Legacy GTs, it is a fantastic option for those Kiwis who need space for their family adventures but want to head away on them in a true driver’s car. As a strong market for Subaru, we had to wait for the 2.0 litre DIT, whereas other markets where Subaru is growing, were offered smaller capacity models. Kiwis get the best spec and we know all will acknowledge it was worth the wait when they drive it!” Mr Dumper says.

 

Every Levorg has an independent maximum five-star rating for occupant safety from the respected Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP), in line with the entire Subaru new car range in New Zealand.

The new Porsche Macan GTS

Porsche-macan-gts

Life, intensified.

Find out more about your touring companion.

 

Porsche build Sports Cars for people with feelings. For all those who want to experience life even more intensively, they build the Macan GTS.

 

Life isn’t meant to be lived in neutral. It drives us on to new things day in, day out. It isn’t about getting from A to B, but pushing oneself to the limit. Taking everything on board. And being part of the race – 24 hours of each new day.

 

Made for the challenge, the highly efficient 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 engine produces 265 kW (360 hp) and 500 Nm torque. And acceleration? The figures speak for themselves: 0 to 100 km/h in a matter of 5.2 seconds. Not to mention the top speed of 256 km/h. The gearshifts of 7-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), fitted as standard, are equally sporty. And the sports exhaust system with black sports tailpipes delivers a particularly aggressive sound.

 

Also along for the ride: Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM). Integrated as standard, it regulates damping force based on current road conditions and driving style. The sports suspension, which sits 15 mm lower than that of the Macan S, maintains an intimate and intense relationship with the road. A typical trait for the Macan GTS.

 

The Macan GTS conveys an even lower and muscular stance when equipped with the dynamic SportDesign package. The imposing SportDesign front apron, featuring matt black air intake grilles, and the sideskirts reinforce the dynamic appearance. As do the sideblades in matt black, a finish reserved exclusively for the Macan GTS. A genuine top-class athlete, we might say. And that status is reaffirmed by its 20-inch RS Spyder Design wheels in satin black.

 

As sporty as they are exclusive, they simply can’t wait to blaze the tarmac. Visual accents are added by the Bi-Xenon main headlights in black including Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) and the tinted LED taillights. Even the black ‘GTS’ logo on the rear makes something unmistakably clear: the Macan GTS accepts no compromise.

 

Exquisite materials, such as leather and Alcantara®, and the latest version of Porsche Communication Management (PCM) add the final touches to a sports car masterpiece promising to excite pure fascination. Right down the line. If we had to express the word sportiness in just three letters, our answer would forever be: GTS.

Audi SQ7 specifications for New Zealand released

Audi-SQ7

An icon through and through.
The new Audi SQ7 TDI.

 

Dominance in a new dimension: with 320 kW (435 hp) and 900 Nm of torque, the new Audi SQ7 TDI is the most powerful diesel SUV on the market. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds and further up to 250 km/h. Numerous design features give the SQ7 TDI an expressive and impressive exterior. The spacious interior invites you to relax – for five or seven people as is needed.

 

Highlights

 

Power from a standstill: The electric-powered compressor
The 4.0 litre, V8 TDI high-performance engine works with a world premiere: The electric-powered compressor provides the SQ7 TDI with an outstanding starting performance. In 4.8 seconds, the SQ7 TDI accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h. The maximum speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h. 900 Nm of torque are mobilised at 1,000 – 3,250 rpm. Climb aboard and fasten your seatbelt.

 

Presence in every line: exterior design
The SQ7 TDI impresses with a great balance of powerful and sharpened styling. Exclusive design features, such as the aluminium exterior mirrors, the sporty door sills or the sculpturally shaped single frame, accentuate the exterior design. Chromed twin tailpipes on the left and right and the emphasis on the wheel housing make the sporty character even more evident.

 

Balance to the limits: Driving comfort
The optional electromechanical dynamic ride control ensures greater stability and agility and even more driving comfort in curves. It increases the steering precision, thus ensuring an even sportier handling. In addition, the 4.0 TDI engine is combined with other strong partners: The newly designed eight-speed tiptronic impresses with its high degree of efficiency and fast gear changes while the all-wheel drive quattro directs all of the power to the road.

 

City, countryside, and parking: Assistance systems
Keep your composure during every drive. The SQ7 TDI offer includes 24 driving assistance systems. So that you are on the go safely, fuel-efficiently and comfortably. The traffic and parking assistants are just two of the optional assistance systems that ensure greater visibility and comfort.

 

Generosity in every seat: The spatial concept
As in the Q7, the SQ7 TDI also provides a variable spatial concept. If desired, five or seven people can be seated comfortably. In the second row, a three-piece backrest is fitted as a standard with individually hinged segments. The optional third row folds in and out electrically.

DS_Automobiles

DS AUTOMOBILES LOOKS BACK TO GO FORWARD

 

The very first DS, which appeared at the 1955 Paris Motor Show, became a legend in its own time and was a major milestone in 20th century automotive history. Sixty years on in 2015, the DS brand was founded to perpetuate the revolutionary spirit of this mythical car and renew the tradition of French premium vehicles.
 
DS CEO Yves Bonnefont, said: “To build today’s DS brand we draw inspiration from the exceptional heritage of this legendary car, and take up the values it conveyed, of innovation, excellence and avant-garde design. Specifically, today’s DS models excel in refinement, quality materials, outstanding style, technology, comfort and performance. We aim to perpetuate the story of DS and ensure that these two letters continue to embody French know-how in luxury automobiles around the world and for a long time to come.”
 
DS Automobiles New Zealand has revealed a new direction for the DS brand locally, a new offering for DS customers and an invigorated 2016 vehicle range.
 
Available only at dedicated DS Automobiles Salons within the authorised Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch Citroën network, DS offers a brand experience that goes beyond the product to include a range of exclusive premium services.
 
“This is an iconic moment for the DS Automobiles brand in NZ, as we release three new models simultaneously and implement specialised luxury training and service standards for dealerships” says Divisional Manager, DS Automobiles NZ, Simon Rose. He continues, “to celebrate this important launch we also chose to relaunch the brand with a fashion show in conjunction with leading designer Adrian Hailwood, who aptly embodies the DS values of excellence, boldness and entrepreneurship”.
 
The 2016 DS range has been rationalised down to three premium models, each embodying the best of French savoir faire with the use of superior materials, quality engine performance and unparalleled style.
