Νέος 1000άρης τούρμπο για το Hyundai i20

Motor Racing - Formula One Testing - Barcelona Test - Day Two - Barcelona, Spain

Ο Esteban Ocon δεν κατάφερε τελικά να βρεθεί στη Renault, αφού η γαλλική ομάδα προτίμησε να συνεχίσει τη συνεργασία της με τον Jolyon Palmer. Ωστόσο, ο Γάλλος τελικά θα καταφέρει να κάνει ένα αρκετά μεγάλο βήμα στην καριέρα του. Σήμερα, η Force India ανακοίνωσε πως θα είναι επίσημος οδηγός της για το 2017.

Ο 20χρονος θα βρεθεί φυσικά δίπλα στον Sergio Perez, που παρέμεινε στην ομάδα του Silverstone, και ουσιαστικά θα αντικαταστήσει τον Nico Hulkenberg, που μετακόμισε στο Enstone. Έτσι, μένουν πέντε κενές θέσεις για το 2017: δύο στη Manor, δύο στη Sauber και μία στη Haas, με τον Kevin Magnussen να είναι ένα βήμα πριν την επίσημη ανακοίνωση από την αμερικανική ομάδα.

Δηλώσεις του Ocon, του επί κεφαλής της ομάδας, Vijay Mallya, αλλά και του Toto Wolff, επί κεφαλής της Mercedes-Benz Motorsport, θα βρεις στο παρακάτω δελτίο Τύπου.

Δελτίο Τύπου

Sahara Force India is pleased to confirm Esteban Ocon as a race driver for 2017 and beyond following the signing of a multi-year contract. The 20-year-old Frenchman will race alongside Sergio Perez to form one of the most exciting line-ups on the grid with a blend of youth and experience.

Esteban Ocon: “I’m very excited to join Sahara Force India. I know the team quite well already because I was a test driver last year and I’m really looking forward to working with everybody at Silverstone once again. I’m still relatively new to Formula One, but spending half a season at Manor Racing has given me some valuable experience and I feel ready for this new opportunity with Sahara Force India. The next few months will be very busy as I do all I can to prepare for the challenge ahead of me. It means lots of days at the factory, working on the simulator and building relationships with the engineers and everybody in the team. It’s something I’ve been working towards my whole life and I intend to grab this opportunity with both hands so that I can deliver the results the team expects from me. I want to say ‘thank you’ to everybody at Manor and especially to Mercedes-Benz for their support and belief in me. I can’t wait for 2017 and my first full season racing in Formula One.”

Vijay Mallya, Team Principal and Managing Director: “It’s a pleasure to welcome Esteban as our new race driver. He’s an exceptional talent, as his status as a Mercedes Junior demonstrates, and I have no doubt he will flourish inside our team. We’ve had our eye on Esteban for a number of years and have followed his progress through the junior categories where he delivered outstanding results. We ran him in the car last year during testing and his performance convinced us that he is more than capable of racing alongside Sergio. Sahara Force India has a tradition of investing in young, talented drivers and the arrival of Esteban will bring some fresh energy and motivation to everyone in the team.”

Toto Wolff, Head of Mercedes-Benz Motorsport: ““Esteban has the most impressive track record in junior formulae and he is an exceptional personality outside of the car. Force India have a strong record of working with young drivers and have again shown courage and vision to take Esteban under their wing. Even more, it is a positive development for Formula One that talent wins over money and we will be seeing some of the most impressive youngsters fighting to make it to the top in Formula One over the coming years.”

Renault Kwid Outsider Concept

… ή πώς άλλαξε η κεντρική κονσόλα των αυτοκινήτων μέσα στην τελευταία δεκαετία. Η τεχνολογική επανάσταση έφερε αλλαγές όχι μόνο στην εξωτερική εμφάνιση αλλά και στην καμπίνα των επιβατών.

ΤΟΥ ΚΩΣΤΑ ΜΠΙΤΣΙΚΩΚΟΥ

Θυμάμαι όταν πήρα το δίπλωμα οδήγησης, τα μόνα πράγματα που κουβαλούσα ήταν τα κλειδιά του σπιτιού και το πορτοφόλι. Τα έβαζα στη θήκη της πόρτας ή στο ντουλαπάκι του συνοδηγού και ξεκινούσα.

Τώρα για να κάνω και την πιο σύντομη διαδρομή θα πρέπει να τσεκάρω μία ολόκληρη λίστα: Έχω μαζί το κινητό; Είναι φορτισμένο και αν «όχι», έχω καλώδιο USB; Είναι ενεργοποιημένο το Bluetooth ώστε να συνδεθεί αυτόματα με το σύστημα πολυμέσων; Πήρα το tablet για τη δουλειά;

Η αυτοκινητοβιομηχανία προσαρμόζεται ανάλογα με τις ανάγκες μας και διαμορφώνει (ή μάλλον μεταμορφώνει) το εσωτερικό του αυτοκινήτου. Απαιτούνται πολλές θήκες για να χωρέσουν όλες τις ηλεκτρονικές συσκευές, ακόμη και το κλειδί που πλέον δεν μπαίνει στη μίζα.

Για να απελευθερώσεις χώρο πρέπει να αφαιρέσεις. Η αρχή έγινε με τον επιλογέα του μηχανικού κιβωτίου. Όλο και περισσότεροι επιλέγουν αυτόματο κιβώτιο , για την ευκολία που προσφέρει κατά την οδήγηση μέσα στην πόλη. Ο λεβιές του αυτόματου κιβωτίου είναι μικρότερος, ενώ σιγά-σιγά δίνει τη θέση του σε περιστροφικό επιλογέα. Το ίδιο συνέβη και με το χειρόφρενο, που αντικαταστάθηκε με ηλεκτρονικό διακόπτη. Και όσο θα περνούν τα χρόνια και θα κατευθυνόμαστε προς την αυτόνομη οδήγηση, τόσο περισσότερες θήκες θα δημιουργούνται για υπολογιστές, βιβλία κ.α.

Τα αυτόματα κιβώτια και τα ηλεκτρικά χειρόφρενα μπορούν όμως να κρύβουν κινδύνους για όσους δεν έχουν εξοικειωθεί με το πώς λειτουργούν (διαβάστε ΕΔΩ σχετικά).

Ήρθαν τα “άγρια” να διώξουν τα “ήμερα”…

2017-vw-golf-facelift-19

Μετά την χθεσινοβραδινή διαρροή η Volkswagen παρουσίασε σήμερα το ανανεωμένο Golf. Το best-seller μοντέλο της Volkswagen αποκτά νέα LED φωτιστικά σώματα που αντικαθιστά τα bi-xenon, ελαφρώς διαφορετικούς προφυλακτήρες, νέα γρίλια και νέας σχεδίασης ζάντες. Τα πίσω φωτιστικά σώματα είναι LED, οι απολήξεις των εξατμίσεων φέρουν νέα σχεδίαση, με το μοντέλο να συνεχίζει να προσφέρεται σε τρίπορτες και πεντάπορτες εκδόσεις, που μπορούν να βαφτούν σε νέα χρώματα.

2017-vw-golf-facelift-23

Στο εσωτερικό ξεχωρίζει ο ψηφιακός πίνακας οργάνων 12,3″, δανεισμένος από το Passat να προστίθεται στον προαιρετικό εξοπλισμό του, μαζί με το head-up display. Επίσης υπάρχουν νέες ταπετσαρίες και χρωματισμοί, με την κεντρική κονσόλα να προέρχεται σχεδόν αυτούσια από το Golf R Touch concept, στην οποία κυριαρχεί η οθόνη αφής διαστάσεων 9,2″ του συστήματος ενημέρωσης και ψυχαγωγίας. Η νέα οθόνη (Discover Pro) υποστηρίζει ηχητικές εντολές και gestures, κάνοντας το Golf το πρώτο μοντέλο στη κατηγορία των συμπαγών αυτοκινήτων που εξοπλίζεται με υποστήριξη για gestures.

Από πλευράς ασφαλείας, το ανανεωμένο Golf εφοδιάζεται με το σύστημα Traffic Jam Assist με ημι-αυτόνομες λειτουργίες οδήγησης, όπως αυτόνομο φρενάρισμα σε περίπτωση σύγκρουσης και αποφυγή οπίσθιας σύγκρουσης. Ακόμη μπορεί να καταλάβει πότε ο οδηγός δεν έχει την απαραίτητη προσοχή στον δρόμο και τον ειδοποιεί να κάνει στάση για να ξεκουραστεί.

2017-vw-golf-facelift-4

Κάτω από το καπό υπάρχει ο νέος 1.500αρης TSI Evo κινητήρας απόδοσης 150 ίππων με 250 Nm ροπής. Ο κινητήρας φέρει τεχνολογία απενεργοποίησης κυλίνδρων, έχοντας μέση κατανάλωση στον κύκλο δοκιμών NEDC 4,9 λίτρα/100 χλμ και εκπομπές CO 110 γρ/χλμ.

2017-vw-golf-facelift-12

Η BlueMotion έκδοση του παράγει 130 άλογα με 200 Nm ροπής με μέση κατανάλωση 4,6 λίτρα/100 χλμ και 104 γρ/χλμ εκπομπές CO2. Η συγκεκριμένη έκδοση του 1.5 ΤSI Evo κινητήρα διαθέτει λειτουργία coasting που κλείνει τον κινητήρα όταν ο οδηγός πάρει το πόδι του από το πεντάλ του γκαζιού, προσφέροντας έτσι εξοικονόμηση καυσίμου της τάξεως των 0,4 λίτρων/100 χλμ. Το e-Golf θα έχει αυτονομία 300 χλμ, με το Golf GTi να φορά τον 2.0 TSI κινητήρα απόδοσης 230 ίππων, με την GTI Performance έκδοση να παράγει πλέον 245 άλογα.

2017-vw-golf-facelift-5

Η VW μάλιστα έχει αναπτύξει ένα ολοκαίνουργιο επτάταχυτο αυτόματο κιβώτιο διπλού συμπλέκτη DSG που αντικαθιστά το εξατάχυτο DSG. Το ντεμπούτο του ανανεωμένου Golf θα γίνει την ερχόμενη εβδομάδα στην έκθεση του Λος Άντζελες.

World premiere in Wolfsburg: Volkswagen presents the new Golf

  • Management Board Chairman Dr Herbert Diess: “The new Golf marks the beginning of the largest product offensive in the history of Volkswagen.”
  • Smarter, safer and more interconnected: state-of-the-art technical update of the Golf impresses with a 9.2-inch screen reminiscent of a tablet
  • The world’s first car in its class with gesture control
  • Compact car with enhanced design is capable of semi-automated driving up to 60 km/h with Traffic Jam Assist

Volkswagen presented a major update of the Golf at the brand’s tower at the Autostadt in Wolfsburg today. Key features: enhanced design, new engine technologies, new assistance systems and a new generation of infotainment systems. As a world first in the compact class, the top-of-the-range “Discover Pro” infotainment system can be operated by gesture control. With its 9.2-inch screen it forms a conceptual and visual entity with the Active Info Display (digital instrument panel), which is also new to the Golf. The updated Golf is one of the first compact cars to be available with semi-automated driving functions, for instance, the new Traffic Jam Assist function can guide the Volkswagen in stop-and-go traffic.

Dr Herbert Diess, Chairman of the Volkswagen Brand Board of Management, explained at the world premiere: “The main focus is on a completely new generation of infotainment and connectivity. No other compact car is smarter, safer or more interconnected.” The relaunch of this success story, over 33 million of which have been sold, marks the beginning of the largest product offensive in the history of the Volkswagen brand. Dr Herbert Diess continues: “Volkswagen is gaining momentum. In 2017, we will be presenting more than ten new models and major updates. By 2020, we will have renewed our complete line-up.”

The potential of the Golf is apparent from the new status quo of the assistance systems: technologies such as Front Assist with new Pedestrian Monitoring, the new Traffic Jam Assist and Emergency Assist, which is also new in this segment, significantly improve safety. “With the 2017 model year Golf we are introducing automated driving functions to the compact class for the first time ever”, says Dr Frank Welsch, Member of the Board of Management of the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand with responsibility for Technical Development. The chief engineer continues: “Thanks to the fusion of the Lane Assist lane departure warning system and the adaptive cruise control ACC, Traffic Jam Assist can take control at speeds of up to 60 km/h in strenuous stop-and-go traffic. It steers, brakes and accelerates the new Golf.”

These innovations are accompanied by the enhanced TSI engine family. The new Golf initially sees the debut of the new turbocharged petrol engine “1.5 TSI Evo” – a 110 kW/150 PS1 four-cylinder engine with variable Active Cylinder Management (ACT). This will be followed by a BlueMotion version that produces 96 kW/130 PS2 – also with ACT, as well as a new coasting function, which temporarily completely shuts the engine down while driving. Dr Welsch adds: “The result is that the new Golf will therefore be up to one litre more fuel efficient in real-world operation than engines of comparable power. That is Smart Sustainability. That is affordable progress for everyone.” Volkswagen has also boosted the performance of the Golf GTI3, which will now deliver 169 kW/230 PS3 or 180 kW/245 PS4 (as the GTI Performance4). A new 7-speed DSG (dual clutch transmission) will gradually replace all 6-speed DSGs as a high-efficiency gearbox for the Golf.

As mentioned above, Volkswagen presents the update to the two- and four-door Golf, the Golf Variant and the sporty Golf GTI3 and Golf GTE5 at Volkswagen’s headquarters in Wolfsburg. This is where all seven generations of the Golf were developed and where the bulk of the annual volume of up to about a million Golf cars are built. The latest version of the Golf is distinguished by its more precise design. The modifications include new bumpers, new halogen headlights with LED daytime running lights, new full LED headlights to replace the xenon headlights, new front wings, new full LED tail lights fitted as standard on every version as well as new alloy wheels.

Advance sales of the 2017 model year Golf will already start at the beginning of December – with prices starting at the same base price, despite higher specifications. Volkswagen will also celebrate the world premiere of the zero-emission version of the Golf – the new e-Golf6 – with significantly increased range, at the Los Angeles Auto Show next week.

VOLKSWAGEN INTRODUCES MAJOR UPDATES TO THE GOLF FAMILY OF VEHICLES

World debut of facelifted Golf, Golf GTI, Golf GTE and Golf Variant features gesture control for the first time in the compact-car segment

  • Infotainment systems have been redesigned and fitted with larger touchscreens
  • Traffic Jam Assist and Emergency Assist featured in the Golf for the first time
  • New 1.5-liter TSI Evo with 150 PS and Active Cylinder Management
  • Golf GTI now makes 230 PS for the base version and 245 PS for the GTI Performance model
  • Newly developed seven-speed DSG dual-clutch transmission will gradually replace six-speed DSGs
  • Design changes include new front and rear bumpers and full LED taillights
  • LED headlights replace Xenon headlights for Golf and Golf Variant

Wolfsburg, November 2016. Volkswagen is updating the most successful model in the Group’s history—the Golf. The main focus of the 2017 model year is—alongside new engines, sharper design and new driver assistance systems—a completely new generation of infotainment systems. The top-of-the-range “Discover Pro” system can be operated by gesture control, a world first for the compact car segment. With its 9.2-inch screen it forms a conceptual and visual entity with the Active Info Display, which is also new to the Golf. In parallel to this, the range of online services and apps has also been enlarged. The update to the Golf, of which over 33 million have been sold to date, also reflects a new standard for assistance systems in the compact class: technologies such as City Emergency Braking with a new Pedestrian Monitoring function, the new Traffic Jam Assist (partially automated driving at speeds of up to 60 km/h) and Emergency Assist, which is also new in this segment, significantly improve safety.

These changes are accompanied by the enhanced EA211 TSI engine family. The new Golf initially sees the debut of the new 1.5-liter TSI Evo turbocharged gasoline engine, a 110 kW/150 PS four-cylinder with Active Cylinder Management (ACT). This will be followed by a BlueMotion version producing 96 kW/130 PS. Volkswagen has also boosted the performance of the Golf GTI, with 169 kW/230 PS for the base model and and 180 kW/245 PS for the GTI Performance model. A new seven-speed DSG (dual clutch gearbox) will gradually replace the six-speed DSG as a high-efficiency gearbox for the Golf.

The more refined design of all new versions of the Golf makes a more powerful impression than ever before. The modifications include new bumpers at the front and rear, new halogen headlights with LED daytime running lights, new full LED headlights instead of Xenon headlights, new front fenders, new full LED taillights—which come as standard for every version of the Golf—as well as new wheels and colors. The interior is upgraded with refined new decorative trims and fabrics.

Design

New details freshen the Golf’s iconic design. The lower chrome strip on the radiator grille extends through the LED Daytime Running Lights to the left and right as a chrome element (painted red on the GTI and blue on the GTE). The LED headlights, which either come as standard or as an optional extra, depending on the equipment version, replace the Bi-Xenon headlights in the new Golf. The cooling vents in the lower part of the bumper, which have also been redesigned, accentuate the width even more. The interplay of the new details make the Golf even more striking.

Another optical highlight for models with Adaptive Cruise Control ACC and/or Front Assist is that the radar sensor for these systems on the TDI, TSI, LNG, GTD and GTI versions will no longer be located (visibly) in the lower cooling air intake in the bumper, but will instead now be hidden behind the VW logo in the upper radiator grille.

The back of the car has also been made more charismatic: from now on, all versions of the Golf and Golf Variant will come with full LED taillights. In contrast to many standard LED taillights, none of the functions will use conventional light bulbs. Also, the top-of-the-range version of the full LED taillights (available for the two- and four-door Golf) will have animated flowing indicators. This version can be recognised by a translucent white LED stripe that turns orange when indicating. Last, but not least, the top-of-the-range version is set apart by a visually striking switch-over between the LED taillight and the LED brake lights when the brakes are applied.

For the interior of the Golf, Volkswagen’s‎ “Colour & Trim” design division has come up with new decorative trim panels in the doors, the dash panel and the center console, as well as new seat covers.

The sporty GT versions are set apart by color applications to match the character of the specific Golf version, instead of the chrome strip in the radiator grille and headlights—red for the Golf GTI and blue for the GTE.  The back of the Golf GTI is distinguished not only by the new bumpers and the full LED taillights, but also by the enlarged cross-section of the chrome-plated exhaust pipes.

The latest version of the Golf Variant is also making its debut.  A new rear bumper makes the Golf Variant appear even more elongated and elegant and marries neatly with the full LED taillights. Just like the Passat Variant, the Golf Variant is also available with sophisticated trapezoidal chrome trim panels, which are directly integrated into the diffuser, as an option.

Infotainment

The update to the Golf is most readily visible inside, because the new car offers a new and increasingly digital display and control concept. It is based on the new Active Info Display and the first infotainment system with gesture control to be offered in a production Volkswagen. Along with this, Volkswagen has updated its whole range of infotainment systems. Its most important characteristic is the sophisticated new design, larger touchscreens and, in the case of the top-of-the-range “Discover Pro” system, gesture control, which is implemented here for the first time in the Golf’s compact car class.

The Golf’s Active Info Display is a fully digital instrument cluster with numerous interactive functions. All of the instruments are displayed virtually on the 12.3-inch color display. The navigation information can be displayed in 2D or 3D. Its resolution of 1,440 x 540 pixels enables extremely precise and sophisticated interactive display of all the details. There are five different information profiles, in which the kind of information and graphics displayed in certain areas changes. The driver can select from one of the following profiles: “Classic”, “Consumption & Range”, “Efficiency”, “Performance & Driver Assistance” or “Navigation”.

The “Navigation” profile is a good example of the interactive features of the Active Info Display: here, the speedometer and tach are moved to the sides to make more room for the map in the middle. Information on driving, navigation and assistance functions can also be integrated into the graphic areas of the speedometer and tach, as required. Data such as telephone contact images or CD covers can also be displayed on the Active Info Display. Depending on the model, the graphics can be customized: in the Golf GTI, for example, the graphics use GTI red as a contrasting color, while the Golf GTE uses GTE blue to help the instruments blend in with the look of the plug-in hybrid. The Active Info Display is available as an optional extra for all versions of the Golf, as an alternative to analog instruments.

Volkswagen has replaced all of the existing infotainment systems in the Golf with a new generation of the MIB system. The most important feature is that all of the systems now offer a new design and larger touchscreens, although the names of the infotainment systems remain unchanged. The 5-inch “Composition Touch” and “Composition Colour” systems (with a display resolution of 400 x 240 pixels) have been replaced by the new 6.5-inch “Composition Colour” system, with a touchscreen resolution of 800 x 480 pixels, and the black-and-white “Composition Touch” has been discontinued.

The next level up, “Composition Media” and “Discover Media” (incl. navigation) have so far had 6.5-inch screens. They have also been replaced by systems with the same names, but with 8.0-inch screens, while the resolution of 800 x 480 pixels also remains unchanged. The 8.0-inch screen of the top-of-the-range “Discover Pro” system (incl. navigation) will from now on be replaced by a 9.2-inch touchscreen, with the resolution increased from 800 x 480 to 1280 x 640 pixels. The new “Discover Pro” will be the first Volkswagen infotainment system to offer both touch- and voice-command operation with gesture control in addition to proximity sensors—a world premiere in the compact car segment. Volkswagen plans to introduce the new systems in several other product lines in the course of 2017.

Not only does the “Discover Pro” version of the MIB have a 9.2-inch display with a resolution that has increased from 117 to 155 dpi, it has also been completely redesigned. In contrast to the previous 8.0-inch system used in the Golf, the entire front is spanned by a stylish glass surface, a finish that also applies to the new “Discover Media” system. Conventional buttons and controls are a thing of the past with “Discover Pro”: all haptic operation is performed via the touchscreen and five capacitive panels on the left side of the new infotainment system. This vertical bar on the left comprises the functions: “Menu”, “Home”, “On/Off”, “Volume up” and “Volume down”—in other words the main commands, because the driver needs to have direct access to functions such as the volume control. The same applies to the capacitive panel “Home”, with which the driver can get back to the main menu—and thus the home screen—from any of the sub-menus in an instant.

In contrast to the previous version of the “Discover Pro”, the driver can now also configure the home screen. The navigation function is displayed in a large panel on the left of the screen, while there are two smaller panels arranged vertically on the right. The driver can assign important functions to these two display panels, which are also interactive—for instance, the radio or the media library in the top panel and his phone contacts in the bottom panel. Like on a smartphone, as soon as the driver touches the “Home” button—no matter which menu they may currently be in—the system will return to the personalised home screen, as outlined above.

Gesture control can be used in various different menus. All it takes is a swipe gesture to move the horizontally arranged menu items left or right, allowing the driver to scroll through the main menu, change radio stations, flip through the playlist or browse through the Picture Viewer and albums in the media library (CoverFlow). A ‘light flare’ indicates which options can be operated by gesture control and operation is supported by visual interactive feedback. Successful swipes are also confirmed by a sound effect, which can optionally be deactivated.

The range of equipment offered with the “Discover Pro” system also includes an amplifier with a 4 x 20 watt  output, a DVD drive, two USB ports (Apple compatible), two SD card slots, AUX-IN socket, a 10 GB SSD drive, the full range of music playback capabilities, a movie player, jukebox, podcast player, proximity sensor and voice control as well as navigation. Optional are a “Rear View” reversing camera, DAB+, and up to two extra USB sockets as well as two mobile phone interfaces.

In the updated Golf the driver or front seat passenger can simply put their smartphone in a redesigned optional storage compartment with an interface for mobile telephones (“Comfort” mobile phone pre-installation). The highlight here is that the phone can be charged and coupled to the vehicle’s external antenna inductively (in accordance with the Qi standard). Other optional extras include the Car-Net options “App Connect”, “Security & Service” (new in the Golf) and “Guide & Inform”, while “Media Control” is available as an optional extra for the infotainment functions.

With the “Media Control” app, Volkswagen offers an infotainment interface for tablets (and smartphones). The app can be used to control many of the functions of the infotainment system conveniently from a tablet or phone. Passengers simply connect their tablet to the “Discover Media” or “Discover Pro” infotainment system using the WiFi hotspot. The systems that can be controlled include the radio, all audio and video sources (e.g. USB, CD, DVD, hard drive) as well as the navigation system. The information shown on the menu includes artist, album name and cover.

Standard features in the navigation menu are supplemented by an address-search function that uses the Internet and which can also be used to enter selected search results as destinations. Over and above this, rear seat passengers can also send calendar events and address book entries on the tablet or smartphone to the infotainment system as destinations for the navigation system now, turning “Media Control“ into a mobile extension of the infotainment system and an affordable modern-day rear seat entertainment system.

Volkswagen Car-Net

This is the first time that Volkswagen has offered the “Security & Service” package in the Golf. This gives the driver mobile access to assistance in a wide range of situations. The highlights include services such as “Automatic Accident Notification”, “Breakdown Call” and “Service Scheduling” (for making maintenance appointments with your dealership). Breakdown Call allows the driver to use the infotainment system to contact the Volkswagen Emergency Call Centre, which can then arrange for prompt assistance or medical attention, while the system already sends the vehicle data and its location to the emergency services when the driver calls for roadside assistance. Over and above this, “Security & Service” offers functions like online monitoring of “Doors & Lights” as well as information on “Parking Position” (by smartphone or web portal). Anyone who has a learner driver in the family will appreciate “Area Alert” (which automatically notifies you if the Golf is driven in or leaves certain areas) and “Speed Alert” (which is activated as soon as a certain speed is exceeded). Another useful feature is the “Online Anti-Theft Alarm”, which will send you a notification via the Volkswagen Car-Net app on your smartphone or by email if an attempt is made to break into the car.

“Guide & Inform” allows the use of a wide range of online services. It includes an app for the “Discover Media” system and an extended range of apps for the “Discover Pro” system. The services available for “Discover Media” include apps such as “Online POI Search”, “Destination Import”, “Fuel Info” (location and price), “News”, “Parking Info” (location and availability), “Weather”, “Charging Stations” (e.g. Golf GTE) and “Online Traffic Information”. The “Online Traffic Information” service (current traffic situation information) makes it easier to predict how long each journey in the Golf will take, as it feeds data such as traffic density and traffic jams, clearance of traffic jams and other congestion into the navigation system’s dynamic route guidance virtually in real time, so that it can be taken into account. The messages themselves can be viewed in detail via the “Traffic” menu item, while graphics and colored marks on the map displayed on the screen permanently provide up-to-date information on the traffic situation The “Online Traffic Information” service can thus help you to avoid jams in real time. The larger range of apps for “Discover Media” system also includes Google Street View™, Google Earth™, “POI Voice Search” and “Online Map Update”.

Driver assistance systems

If there has ever been a model series that has democratized automotive advances, it is the first seven generations of the Golf. Systems such as ABS, ESC and later the whole broad spectrum of assistance systems came to be taken for granted by millions of people the world over thanks to the affordable Golf. It was, for example, one of the first cars in the compact class with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Front Assist with City Emergency Braking System, Lane Assist, Blind Spot Sensor, Rear Traffic Alert, Park Assist, Driver Alert System, reversing camera (Rear View), traffic sign recognition, Automatic Post-Collision Braking System and trailer stabilisation. The updated Golf continues this tradition. With the 2017 model year Volkswagen is expanding the range of assistance systems, adding Traffic Jam Assist, the new Pedestrian Monitoring for Front Assist with City Emergency Braking, Trailer Assist, which is the first time ever that a trailer manoeuvring system has been available in the compact class, and Emergency Assist. The proactive passenger protection system (PreCrash) has also been refined.

Volkswagen has developed Traffic Jam Assist on the basis of Lane Assist (lane departure warning system) and ACC (automatic distance control) for all Golf models with a DSG gearbox. The system makes traffic jams or stop-and-go driving in the Golf much more comfortable. It also makes driving in jams safer, as the assistant helps the driver to avoid the rear-end collisions so typical of traffic jams. By combining various assistance systems the Golf is, for the first time, capable of partially automated driving.

Lane Assist provides the basis for this system with adaptive lane guidance even at speeds of below 60 km/h. Not only does the system countersteer to make corrections if the car is about to leave the lane, but, with adaptive lane guidance enabled, it also keeps the Golf in the middle of the driving lane or in the driver’s preferred position. ACC is also integrated in Traffic Jam Assist as a second assistance system, because, with ACC, braking and accelerating is automatic even at stop-and-go speeds. ACC and Lane Assist thus merge into Traffic Jam Assist, which means that the system enables assisted lateral and longitudinal guidance. The car steers, accelerates and brakes automatically, within the system’s boundaries, but only under the condition that the driver’s hands are on the steering wheel and participating in steering, so that the driver can intervene at any time.

Another system in which Lane Assist and ACC merge to create a new assistance system is Emergency Assist: as soon as the sensors detect that the driver is not making any steering, braking or acceleration movements any more, the system initiates various escalating actions to alert the driver, and if the driver remains inactive, it initiates an emergency stop. The hazard warning lights are activated automatically and the Golf executes a gentle steering manoeuvre to make surrounding traffic aware of the hazardous situation. ACC prevents the vehicle from colliding with the traffic ahead. Finally, the system brakes the Golf gradually to a standstill to avoid a serious accident, if possible.

Front Assist is a system which warns the driver and brakes automatically in the event of an imminent collision. One component of the Front Assist system is the City Emergency Braking function. The latest version of the Front Assist function is not only capable of detecting other vehicles, but also pedestrians who are crossing the street. As soon as a pedestrian is at risk, the system warns the driver and eventually slows the Golf down autonomously.

Another debut for the compact class is Trailer Assist. This is designed to free the driver of the complicated rethinking needed when reversing with a car and trailer, whereby you have to turn the steering wheel to the left so that the trailer turns to the right – and vice versa. Generally, the goal was also to make reversing over straight and longer distances easier and more exact. Trailer Assist is now capable of doing this almost automatically. To reverse a Golf with a trailer into a parking bay or an entrance from the street, all the driver needs to do is stop at a suitable spot and engage reverse gear. The system is activated by pushing a button. Then the current driving angle and possible driving angles are displayed on the instrument cluster. This is achieved with image-processing algorithms that use data from the rear-view camera, which monitors and analyses the angle between the car and the trailer. With the help of the mirror adjustment switch, which serves as a sort of joystick, the driver can freely adjust the desired driving direction of the car-trailer combination. The Golf executes the steering commands entered by the driver, who only needs to operate the accelerator pedal and the brake. The driving direction of the Golf is automatically controlled by the electromechanical power steering system.

Park Assist makes it possible to park in any parking space that is parallel or perpendicular to the carriageway semi-automatically, and the system can also exit from parallel parking spaces. In the case of perpendicular parking spaces, not only is parking in reverse supported for the first time in a Golf, but it is also possible to park in a forward direction semi-automatically. The first generation of Park Assist assisted the driver by performing automated steering for parallel parking. The second generation of Park Assist added automatic steering for reverse parking into spaces perpendicular to the carriageway, and parallel parking spaces could also be smaller. In addition, automatic exiting from parallel parking spaces was also possible. The third generation of Park Assist, which is now available for the Golf, also makes it possible, as outlined above, to park forwards semi-automatically in parking bays. Due to its high functional versatility, Park Assist 3.0 can optimally assist the driver, especially in difficult traffic situations, because it speeds up the parking process.

The Golf is one of the first cars in its class to feature a proactive passenger protection system (PreCrash). The Golf update includes further refinement of the proactive passenger protection system. It also interacts intelligently with the Front Assist system to react to strong autonomous braking interventions and acute collision hazards in order to provide the best possible support to passengers in critical situations. If the system detects a potential accident situation—for example, through the initiation of hard braking because a brake assistant is activated—the front seatbelts are automatically pre-tensioned to ensure the best possible protection by the air bag and seatbelt system. When a critical and unstable driving situation is detected—such as severe oversteer or understeer with ESC intervention—the side windows and sunroof are also closed, except for a small gap. The reason for this is that when the windows and roof are nearly closed, the head and side airbags offer optimal energy absorption and thereby achieve their best possible effectiveness.

Personalization

The number of convenience and assistance systems increases with each new generation of vehicles. As outlined above, this is also true of the new Golf. Many of these systems are individually adjusted, often by different drivers of the car. This means that drivers constantly have to restore their personal settings. Volkswagen has designed a new generation of personalization that simplifies this process significantly. This involves combining the individual settings for a driver into a user account, which is saved by the vehicle. Drivers can open the user management menu to activate their individual user account, and thus implement their individual settings. Drivers simply identify themselves using their car key, which takes place when the Golf is unlocked. This activates initial settings such as adjusting the seat position on the driver’s side, which can now be saved using the memory function. An overview of personalization options in the Golf, depending on the specific equipment version:

  • Ambient lighting
  • ACC Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Front Assist
  • Infotainment system (including media library, navigation & telephone)
  • Automatic air conditioning settings
  • Instrument cluster/multifunction display
  • Lane Assist
  • Light and Sight (“leaving home” and “coming home” functions, rain sensor and automatic dimming rear-view mirror)
  • Park Assist
  • Locking/unlocking
  • Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Traffic Alert
  • Driver’s seat (seat with memory function)

Powertrains

Volkswagen has enhanced the EA211 TSI engine family and the new turbocharged gasoline direct-injection engines debut in the Golf. The roll-out begins with the 1.5 TSI Evo – a 110 kW/150 PS four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine with Active Cylinder Management (ACT) and efficient common-rail direct-injection technology. The new TSI is particularly refined; it develops its maximum torque of 250 Nm at just 1,500 rpm. NEDC fuel consumption: 4.9 l/100 km* (equating to 110 g/km CO2*). A BlueMotion version of the 1.5 TSI Evo* with 96 kW/130 PS is also in preparation. The NEDC fuel consumption of this version will be 4.6 l/100 km* (104 g/km CO2*). Among the special characteristics of these high-tech engines are a new combustion cycle (derived from the Miller cycle) and a turbocharger with variable turbine geometry (VTG). The engine develops its maximum torque of 200 Nm at just 1,400 rpm.

The 1.5 TSI Evo with 130 PS also offers an extended coasting function when the engine is deactivated—completely shutting down the engine when the driver releases the accelerator. Such engine deactivation has only been seen in conjunction with hybrid vehicles up to now, as systems like the electromechanical power steering and the brake servo still need to be supplied with energy even when the Evo motor is switched off. The extended coasting function, which comes as standard, reduces fuel consumption in real-life operation by up to 0.4 l/100 km. Thanks to the coasting function and the other technical innovations, this 1.5 TSI Evo will offer a fuel consumption advantage of up to 1.0 l/100 km, depending on driving style.

Volkswagen has also improved performance of the Golf GTI models with this update. With 169 kW/230 PS (an increase of 7 kW/10 PS), the standard version is now as powerful as the previous Performance version, while the power output of the new Golf GTI Performance has risen to 180 kW/245 PS.

Volkswagen has also developed a new seven-speed DSG dual clutch automatic transmission. The new DSG will gradually replace all of the six-speed DSGs used in the Golf to date, helping to cut CO2.

elon-musk-tesla-stage

Πρόσφατα η Tesla προέβη στην εξαγορά της γερμανικής Grohmann Engineering, γεγονός που από πολλούς ερμηνεύτηκε ως “προάγγελος” της εγκατάστασης της εταιρίας εντός ευρωπαϊκού εδάφους. Η Ευρώπη αποτελεί μεγάλη αγορά για την Tesla και κάτι τέτοιο φαντάζει πολύ πιθανό και λογικό.

Η Tesla θα κάνει πολύ σημαντικές επενδύσεις στην Ευρώπη αλλά και στην Αμερική στα επόμενα χρόνια. Σίγουρα θα έχουμε τουλάχιστον ένα, αν όχι παραπάνω, Gigafactories μελλοντικά στην Ευρώπη. Είναι απόλυτα φυσιολογικό να αρχίσουμε να παράγουμε και εδώ αυτοκίνητα, αν αυτό καταστεί δυνατό.

δήλωσε ο ίδιος ο Elon Musk. Αυτό που όμως επιβεβαιώνει ο Musk είναι πως εκτός της Γερμανίας, και η Αγγλία αποτελεί μια ιδιαιτέρως ελκυστική επιλογή για την εγκατάσταση του Gigafactory 2.

Τρέφουμε πολύ μεγάλο σεβασμό για το ταλέντο που υπάρχει στην Αγγλία στον τομέα της αυτοκινητοβιομηχανίας. Αρκεί να δει κάποιος τις εγκαταστάσεις  της F1 στη χώρα – είναι απίστευτο πόσο ταλέντο υπάρχει εκεί. Υπάρχουν εγκαταστάσεις στα Midlands που θα μπορούσαν να μας προσφέρουν πολύτιμο know-how

Και το Brexit όμως δεν φαίνεται να πτοεί τον Musk, ο οποίος σύμφωνα με την Telegraph δεν πιστεύει πως το τρέχων καθεστώς ανησυχίας και αβεβαιότητας θα έχει κάποια σημαντική επίπτωση στα σχέδια της Tesla.

Η Tesla “βλέπει” και Αγγλία για το Gigafactory 2

Η Opel θα λανσάρει την επόμενη γενιά φώτων IntelliLux LED στο νέο Insignia το 2017. Πέρα από τα πολυάριθμα πλεονεκτήματα της βραβευμένης τεχνολογίας που λανσαρίστηκε για πρώτη φορά στο Astra, οι εξελιγμένοι προβολείς διαθέτουν πρόσθετες λειτουργίες που βελτιώνουν την ορατότητα στο σκοτάδι.

Του ΓΙΑΝΝΗ ΤΣΙΡΟΓΙΑΝΝΗ

Όταν η Opel αποκάλυψε το Monza Concept, οι ειδικοί συστημάτων εξωτερικών φώτων της εταιρίας δεν ήταν απλώς ενθουσιασμένοι. Τοποθετούσαν τις τελικές πινελιές στο σύστημα προσαρμοζόμενων προβολέων IntelliLux LED matrix του νέου Opel Astra, που αποτελείται από 16 στοιχεία LED – οκτώ σε κάθε πλευρά του οχήματος – το οποίο προσαρμόζει αυτόματα και συνεχώς το μήκος και την κατανομή της δέσμης φωτός σύμφωνα με τις συνθήκες κυκλοφορίας.

Τα πράγματα κύλησαν ευνοϊκά για τους ειδικούς συστημάτων φώτων της Opel και προς όφελος των μελλοντικών αγοραστών του νέου Insignia: η πρόοδος των λυχνιών LED προχώρησε με ταχύτητα φωτός. Κατά τη διάρκεια εξέλιξης του Astra, οι λυχνίες LED είχαν γίνει ακόμα πιο συμπαγείς και ισχυρές, και οι μηχανικοί της Opel χρησιμοποίησαν την υψηλότερη απόδοσή τους για να χωρέσουν διπλάσια στοιχεία LED (32) στους – εμπνευσμένους από το Monza Concept – προβολείς του νέου Insignia σε σχέση με το Astra.

Λόγω των περισσοτέρων στοιχείων LED, οι αλλαγές γίνονται ομαλότερα με αποτέλεσμα οι φωτεινές δέσμες να προσαρμόζονται με μεγαλύτερη ακρίβεια. Έτσι, οι προσαρμοζόμενοι προβολείς ntelliLux LED matrix του νέου Insignia παράγουν ακόμη πιο πλούσιο και έντονο φως.

Opel nixta-640

Ο Ingolf Schneider, Engineering Group επικεφαλής συστημάτων εξωτερικών φώτων, τόνισε: «Τώρα, φέρνουμε την εξελιγμένη, δεύτερη γενιά αυτής της καινοτόμου τεχνολογίας στην αγορά με το νέο Insignia, με πρόσθετες νέες λειτουργίες που θα βελτιώσουν περαιτέρω την ορατότητα τη νύχτα».

Με σκοπό την αναβαθμισμένη ορατότητα στις στροφές με μεγάλη σκάλα φώτων, οι μηχανικοί πρόσθεσαν μία νέα λειτουργία στους προβολείς IntelliLux LED matrix του νέου Insignia. Η ένταση τη δέσμης των εσωτερικών στοιχείων αυξάνεται ανάλογα με τη γωνία διεύθυνσης, ώστε να φωτιστεί περισσότερο η στροφή.

Κάθε προβολέας περιλαμβάνει επίσης μία εστιασμένη δέσμη μεγάλης σκάλας που παρέχει πρόσθετο φωτισμό σε εμβέλεια μέχρι 400 m, βελτιώνοντας περαιτέρω την ορατότητα του νέου Insignia μακριά.

Μόλις το αυτοκίνητο βγει από μία αστική περιοχή, οι προβολείς IntelliLux LED ενεργοποιούνται αυτόματα και στη συνέχεια προσαρμόζουν σταθερά την εμβέλεια και κατανομή της δέσμης σε όλες τις κυκλοφοριακές συνθήκες, είτε πρόκειται για οδήγηση στην πόλη, σε επαρχιακό δρόμο, ή στον αυτοκινητόδρομο, ή σε καμπές. Κάνοντας κυριολεκτικά τη νύχτα μέρα για το νέο Opel Insignia – αλλά χωρίς να ενοχλούν τους άλλους οδηγούς.

emissions exhaust co2 nox

Στη Γαλλία οι αρχές ανακοίνωσαν πως εξετάζουν αν η Renault θα πρέπει να παραπεμφθεί λόγω υψηλών εκπομπών NOx από κάποιους κινητήρες της. Η έρευνα, η οποία ξεκίνησε στον απόηχο του σκανδάλου της VW με τις εκπομπές ρύπων των κινητήρων της diesel, αποκάλυψε πως οι πραγματικές εκπομπές NOx των εν λόγω κινητήρων ήταν αρκετές φορές πάνω από τα επιτρεπτά όρια.

Οι αρμόδιοι εισαγγελείς έχουν ήδη παραλάβει τον σχετικό φάκελο και μένει να δούμε ποια θα είναι η απόφαση τους, η οποία θα παρθεί ενώ υπάρχουν έρευνες και για άλλες αυτοκινητοβιομηχανίες για παρόμοια θέματα.

H Renault δηλώνει πως οι κινητήρες της είναι σύμφωνοι με την γαλλική και την ευρωπαϊκή νομοθεσία και δεν εξοπλίζονται με λογισμικό εξαπάτησης που επηρεάζουν τα συστήματα αντιρρύπανσης.

Groupe Renault acknowledges the decision to communicate the DGCCRF’s conclusions to the public prosecutor in the scope of the “diesel” matter

Concurrently with the works of the independent technical commission, the DGCCRF has conducted investigations concerning the automotive industry, of which Renault was informed in January 2016.

The DGCCRF has decided to communicate its conclusions to the Public Prosecutor, who now has to decide the steps to be taken, as the case may be.

Groupe Renault reasserts its determination to enforce its rights to defend the company’s corporate interest, as well as its employees and shareholders.

In this respect, the Group reminds its constant position:

1- Renault complies with French and European regulations.

2- Renault vehicles are all and have always been homologated in accordance with the laws and regulations. They are compliant with the applicable standards.

3- Renault vehicles are not equipped with cheating software affecting anti-pollution systems.

4- The States, European Commission, Regulation Authorities and automotive manufacturers all share the opinion that the requirements of the applicable regulations need to be strengthened. This is the purpose of the future Euro6d Regulation.

Groupe Renault reminds that in March 2016 it submitted to the panel of the independent technical commission a complete nitrogen oxide (NOx) emission reduction plan for its Euro6b diesel vehicles in customer use, which has been deemed transparent, satisfactory and credible.
