The optional Sport Chrono package enables the chassis, engine and transmission to be tuned to an even sportier level, accompanied by a sound that is even more emotive. The Sport Chrono package is characterised by the analogue and digital stopwatch on the dashboard, as well as the additional Sport Plus button in the centre console.
The xLine equipment package, available for the new BMW X3, can be identified from the outside by gleaming metallic inserts in the bumpers, Aluminium satinated side cladding and bars in the air intakes, and simulated underguards at the front and rear. It also allows customers to choose from additional cloth and leather upholstery variants, trim strips and two exclusive 18 and 19-inch light-alloy wheel options.
Aside from its length, which has grown by a single centimetre, the new BMW X3 has the same compact, usable dimensions of its successful predecessor. However, the new BMW X3 comes with a host of exclusive details that accentuate its latest step up in class. At the front end, for example, the newly designed twin circular headlights stand out immediately. They can also be ordered in full-LED specification as an option and, like the optional LED front fog lamps, lend even greater expression to the premium profile of the BMW X3.
The all-new 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is the most track-capable Corvette ever. This latest version is the first Corvette Z06 to offer a supercharged engine, an automatic transmission and, thanks to a stronger aluminum frame, a removable roof panel.
The 2015 Corvette Z06 is powered by an all-new LT4 6.2L supercharged V8 engine. It is expected to deliver an estimated 625 horsepower (466 kW) and 635 lb-ft of torque (861 Nm). To balance performance and efficiency, the LT4 leverages the same trio of advanced technologies introduced on the Corvette Stingray: Direct injection, Active Fuel Management and continuously variable valve timing.
The 2014 Audi RS 6 Avant is an unbelievably fast machine, but performance isn’t all what this car has to offer. What the test drive reveals, is how versatile the RS 6 actually is. This ultimate family performance wagon comes standard with two sportily molded rear seats. A three-person bench seat is available as an option. The new RS 6 is only available as an Avant model offering a bit boot which holds up to 1,680 liters (59.33 cu ft).
Kia has added two completely new GT models to its European lineup. Before this, there hasn’t really been any performance-focused Kia models in Europe. The two new models are 5-door Kia cee’d GT and 3-door Kia pro_cee’d GT. We took a test drive with the Kia pro_cee’d GT, which is the tastier looking of these two.
If you want a sportier version of the Fiat 500, then your choice is the Abarth 500. We took a test drive with the Abarth 500C Competizione which is equipped with a robotised manual transmission. This kind of system always raises questions, so let’s see how it works.
