Enticing Features of Audi Q7

It is well-known that Audi Q7 is not only the key contributor to Audi’s sales records, but also lies in the heart of the luxury SUV segment. Although Audi Q7 fails to enter the first-class lineup of SUV in terms of its price, it does have to ability to compete with the likes of the Mercedes-Benz GLE, the BMW X5, and the Volvo XC90. SUVs have grown rapidly in recent years, not only in numbers but also in the technology and equipment they are equipped with. In a sea of luxury sedans and SUVs filled with sporty technology, the Audi Q7 is arguably one of the most family-friendly. 2020 has seen Audi make significant changes to its lineup. The update isn't bold, but it's not dull either. Updated exterior and interior styling, better technology and a more defined grille all add up to a 2021 Audi Q7 that won't go out of style any time soon. 2021 Audi Q7 has many of its basic features tweaked slightly compared to the previous model. We mentioned earlier that because the Audi Q7 is at the heart of the luxury SUV segment, it has to compete with the likes of the Mercedes-Benz GLE, BMW X5 and Volvo XC90. If you're considering a luxury SUV, you'll find that the Audi Q7 holds up well against the competition by comparison. Compared to the GLE and X5, it has standard seating in the third row. It's also a relatively better driver compared to the XC90.However, it doesn't have a dedicated sport mode like the Porsche Cayenne. The Audi Q7 offers a more comprehensive skill set in the luxury SUV segment than most of its competitors, and has many interesting features to back it up. But which feature shines the most? Let's figure out the answer. The 2021 Audi Q7 uses the same power trains as the 2020 model. That is to say, 2021 Audi Q7 is still powered by 248-hp turbocharged four-cylinder and a turbocharged 3L V6. This engine is coupled with a 48-volt hybrid system to generate 335 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. Although the four-cylinder engine generates a relatively smaller power, it is good enough for most buyers. However, if you want a bigger power, you can pay additional money to get the V6 for stronger power. The eight-speed automatic transmission still remains unchanged. Audi Q7 is neither a MINI SUV nor a Big Monster. Its size lies in the middle properly, which is great and suitable to drive. With the four-wheel steering equipped, the Q7 gains incredible agility and impressive maneuverability. It drives quite smoothly thanks to the optional air suspension. Now the turn comes to its excellent safety features. According to the official data released, the 2021 Audi Q7 receives the highest score, five stars, in the side crash test and four stars in the rollover test from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. It also boasts the highest rating in all six crash tests performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. It is due to this all-rounded protection that helps Audi Q7 stands out like pearls.

Toyota Hiace Accommodates More People

In the first half of the 2021, Toyota Kirloskar Motor (hereinafter referred to as TKM) in line with its schedule introduced the 2021 Toyota Hiace in the Thailand showrooms. The price of 2021 Toyota Hiace starts with Rs. 55 lakh (ex-showroom). Before it hit the showrooms, this Multi-Purpose Vehicle has been spotted testing several times on public roads. And now it has reached Thailand showrooms and is going to be retailed alongside the sought-after model, Vellfire. 2021 Toyota Hiace is powered by a 2.8-litre diesel engine producing 151 hp and 300 Nm, and is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. Previously, the Japanese manufacturer chose to sell the previous generation Toyota Hiace in the country. but the Toyota Hiace has been operating abroad since 1967 and the fifth generation managed to enter the international scene in late 2004 and remained on sale until the launch of the new model in 2019. The fifth-generation Toyota Hiace, also known as the 2021 all-new model with a 14-seat layout, will first hit the Thailand market. However, this model is only equipped with a diesel engine in Thailand and is only available in two colors, silver and white. Limited to a single GL version, the Toyota Hiace is powered by a 2.8-liter four-cylinder turbo diesel engine with a maximum output of 151 hp and 300 Nm of peak torque. the Fortuner also uses this range of engines, but in the full-size SUV it can reach 204 hp and 500 Nm of peak torque. The power train is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission capable of producing greater towing capability. For added practicality, the last row of seats in the 2021 Toyota Hiace can be folded down to provide extra space. Compared to the Vellfire, the Toyota Hiace has a simpler appearance and looks clean and comfortable. In addition, although Toyota Hiace feature list is not increased, it is practical enough in some functions. It has 2-DIN audio CD, USB, dual front airbags, power steering, power windows, air conditioning vents in each row, semi-reclining seats, with EBD, power sliding rear doors, etc. But something unexpected happen. It is said that the top-selling ute and van in Australia are going through severe stock shortages. Later on, these two models are turned out to be the Toyota HiLux and Toyota Hiace. What’s worse, the shortages come at a time when the biggest month of the year for commercial vehicle sales is upcoming. Generally speaking, the month of June is a peak time for ute and van sales as businesses. All the ute and van models, be it big and small, is able to make use of financial year deals. However, under such severe stock shortages, dealers had to prolong the delivery times of July or longer on vehicles ordered this month. That means small businesses may not be able to take advantage of tax incentives and they should pay more road tax. The above mentioned problems set back the development and sales volumes of Toyota Hiace. So what will the car maker do to level the play field? Let us wait and see.

Toyota Majesty User Feedback

Based on the Toyota Prius, could Toyota Majesty that is powered by  hydrogen braze a new path in automotive industry? Let's take a look at the 2022 Toyota Majesty. Instead of drawing energy from a wall outlet, this electric car uses a hydrogen fuel cell to generate energy. The technology itself may be unfamiliar to most drivers, but for Toyota, this is already its second car to use a hydrogen fuel overseas markets, it joins similar models such as the Honda Clarity and Hyundai Nexo, which is currently in a pilot program in Australia. In overseas markets, it joins similar models such as the Honda Clarity and Hyundai Nexo, which is currently in a pilot program in Australia.  Compared to other similar models, the Toyota Majesty has a rather futuristic look that doesn't quite fit the mainstream, which was the hallmark of the first-generation Toyota Majesty. And regarding the 2022 Toyota Majesty, Toyota has modified some quirky elements and changed some of the exterior design to create a more traditional and handsome large sedan. To give you an idea, the 2022 Toyota Majesty is almost comparable to the Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan if you look at the aspect of the car's appearance. Both cars have a wheelbase of 2920mm and an overall length of 4975mm, with the Toyota Majesty being about 20mm longer. this is in large part because the Toyota Majesty uses the Toyota Group's GA-L chassis, which comes from Toyota's new Global Architecture Family, making it a close cousin to cars such as the Lexus LC and LS. The new generation of the Toyota Majesty enables a switch from the previous front-wheel drive platform to rear-wheel drive. Toyota says this is to meet consumer demand for a sportier and more spacious car. The new generation of Toyota Majesty can accommodate five people effortlessly. From Toyota's official declaration of the new mod, we can see between the lines that this car is more or less prepared to achieve zero emissions from the car. Especially in California, the zero-emissions car will allow Toyota to attract more customers who will no longer hesitate to choose between the Tesla Model S and the Toyota Majesty. Under the slim exterior of the Toyota Majesty is a new hydrogen fuel cell. The hydrogen fuel cell converts hydrogen gas into electricity through a generator. As the hydrogen passes through the 330-cell fuel stack, it generates up to 128kW of electricity, whereas the previous mod had a 370-cell stack that produced 114kW of electricity.The fuel cell bank runs constantly to keep the system fully energized. There is also a small battery on the car, but basically it holds enough "just in case". The official name for the hydrogen fuel cell is FCEV, or fuel cell electric vehicle.  While hydrogen has been used as a combustible fuel in the past, that's not the case here. Like pure electric vehicles, the motor is driven through a single-speed reduction gearbox, but unlike the high power output claimed by most next-generation electric vehicles, the Toyota Majesty has a system output of 134kW and 300Nm, with a sprint time from 0 to 100km/h of 9.2 seconds. These figures are very conservative, but ensure great safety.

Mazda 3 Is User-Friendly

As far as I am concerned, simplifying things get more kicks than halfpence, and nothing can replace a complete and enjoyable user experience. The same is true of buying a agreeable vehicle. If all the automobiles of a certain class remain largely the same, why should we wasting our time to choose a specific one? Let’s try to answer this question bu using the 2021 Mazda3 as an example. It is believed that the Mazda 3, called ฟอร์ดเอเวอร์เรสใหม่ in Thailand, is a compact family hatchback. A sedan version of this Japanese model series is also available all over the world. For the design and functions both on the exterior and interior, nothing special here. There is a widely implemented recipe among most of car manufacturers, to name a few, Ford Focus hatch and sedan, VW Golf and Etta, Renault Manganese hatch and sedan, Toyota Corolla hatch and sedan. These are just a few common examples in the compact segment, that is to say, a tip of the iceberg. The common features include bigger trunks, more sophisticated multimedia systems, and larger interiors. From what has mentioned above, do we mean that the compact Mazda fail to interest the potential buyers and thus will be dismissed from buying list? Of course not. Because these are just least crucial reasons and motivations when viewing the Mazda 3. Now, let us come to what’s really important: innovations and changes. Not long ago, Mazda chose to make a comprehensive change in terms of concept and image about its products. So we can see that the Mazda 626 was replaced with the Mazda6, then the 323 was replaced with the 3, the 2 took the place of the 121. The new generation model is cleaning its blocks along the way. As for the concept or guideline, Mazda in the past worked hard to please everybody by just being nice and not interfering with anyone’s taste. Now things have been different when it comes to the new generations. The 2021 models, in particular Mazda 3, come with a pronounced dynamic appearance, strong design identity, and driving-oriented concept. Some built-in details will certainly be noticed and appreciated by many buyers. Is this change useful and wise? Definitely, yes. During the last decade, Mazda managed to catch the attention of those who do not consider the automobile as yet another household appliance. This can be counts as a breakthrough. The differences between the hatchback and the sedan versions of the Mazda3 surprise many people including me. While the hatchback version might be regarded as an advanced and mature automobile, the sedan version boasts its retro features thanks to its perfect proportions and refined front end style. Want some evidence to see how Mazda staff do a good job in terms of design and identity? The Mazda 3 won the 2020 World Car Design of the Year award, fighting against with some notorious contenders. This valuable award clearly shows that Mazda attaches great importance on innovation and design. So why not have a try and gain a enjoyable experience?

Ford Ranger Raptor: Sharpened Advantages

Ford says the next-generation Ford Raptor will have a sharp edge over the VW Amarok, although they are based on the same platform.. The car makers of Ford and Volkswagen have reach an agreement and established business ties. As part of a product and technology agreement, the new Ranger and Amarok will share the same T7 architecture and technology. Ford will build and engineer both Ford and Volkswagen, but despite of it, I think personally that the Ranger that will have an advantage over Volkswagen , at least according to Ford Australia president Andrew Turkic. In a recent interview of Car Sales with Andrew Turkic, Ford Australia president, he exuded confidence and following project. Ford has a luxury and an advantage in terms of time and fame. So it stands reason to say that Ford has a head start over Volkswagen. He added that Ford boasts its really strong history and its status as forerunner in the vehicle industry. In addition, Ford Ranger Raptor has a really strong global influence. So the focus of Ford now is on how to keep improving and raising our brand reach, whereas for Volkswagen it is a different story. Ford and Volkswagen are already in different stages. While Ford still doesn’t reveal details about the new Ranger, Turkic added that Ford has adopted a brand new concept for developing its products, especially for its pickup truck. So buyers are able to witness philosophy around continuous improvement. Andrew Turkic also shared the corporate culture of Ford, Ford is always committed to the philosophy around continuous improvement. As a car maker, if you want to be a successful player in 180 countries, and also get to the core DNA of Ranger, you have to push and go ahead. Because the bar is set high and the expectations are set high. In June, Volkswagen admitted that without the partnership with Ford, the Amarok would not have survived to a second generation. According to Thomas Sedan, chairman of the board of management of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, it is on earth our customers that get the benefits. There is no denying that without the cooperation we would not have developed a new Amarok. The cooperation between Ford and Volkswagen not just involves the new Ranger and Amarok. They are just small portion of this business cooperation. As part of the partnership between the companies, VW will also develop a new van for Ford based on the Volkswagen Caddy, while Ford will make a electric vehicle based on MEB platform. It is said to be highly differentiated. Beyond the two available engines, the 2022 Ranger Raptor will be provided with custom Fox shocks, off-road tires, enlarged brakes and a wider track to enhance its off-loading abilities. It will also absorb the advantages from other upgrades across the rest of the updated Ranger family. This merits may include new safety features and a more upmarket interior with larger digital displays.

2021 Ford Mustang Heaves into Your Sight

Now things are on the track to meet our expectation. Ford decides to dabble in the electric segment of cars industry to compete with Tesla and other emerging vehicles. Till now, there are lots of concepts about the new green cars, some of which has been applied to the production of environmental friendly vehicles. Among many car makers, German manufacturers are the most meticulous and prudent about electrification. So they are still hesitant and weighing the advantages and disadvantages. However, Ford, the aggressive and ambitious automotive company in America already takes an action. The 2021 Ford Mustang, or Ford Mustang ราคา in Thai language will be launched and it will be available in the market next seasons. Just as what we think, the Blue Oval company didn’t seek for extraordinary outputs and high stock volumes. It didn’t plug in the fierce competition with high-end Tesla Model X versions. But the debut and performance of the 2021 Ford Mustang is brilliant and stands as exemplary role in the market. Other carmakers also make some responses. Nissan publicizes concept of Ariya, and Audi is about to launch the Q4 E-Tron by the end of the year. However, the only  electric SUV available in dealerships is manufactured by Tesla. There was another model in Ford’s lineup. Fans of Ford can not forget the performance pony car in the 70s that was upgraded based on Mustang. For some while, loyal fans were asking if the new muscle car will come back to market again. Although Ford had made some responds, the answer counter to something we expected. The new Mach is an all-electric SUV based on the legendary Mustang. The battery of the 2021 Ford Mustang will last at least 210 miles. So far, the company announced that two alternative setups. The initial one is using a lighter configuration with a 75.7 kWh electric motor. If choose another one, buyers are getting 210 miles of range and 255 ponies. Of course, the choice about all-wheel drive depends on buyers themselves, while the larger battery sends power to both axles. In case you pick a larger 98.8 kWh battery, every operation is quick and smooth. Total distance climbs to 300 miles just with single charge , and power output is 460 hp. With a motor of higher capacity, the SUV is going to need less than 4 seconds to start with 0 to 60 kWh. Ford continues to develop fast-charging systems and networks of stations. Chiefs have promised to provide more than 12,000 fast-charging systems across the US and Canada. These fast-charging systems and networks of stations combined to make a network which would be larger than Tesla’s. Also, standard power outlets will need about 8 hours to refill the battery. It will be possible to order a home station that will charge more than 30 miles per hour. In the future, a home station that charges more than 30 miles per hour will be available in every household and every electrician will be able to install it.

BMW X5 Waiting the Time to Appear

It is expected that the 2021 BMW X5 will follow suit after the roll out of the BMW I7. But the sudden outbreak of Covid-19 pandemic this year delays the arrival of this coupe version of the full-size luxury SUV. Although it has appeared late due to the coronavirus, its premiere and development have defied the bleak prospect. The BMM X5 as a coupe-SUV shares the same platform and the common drive train range with its closest sibling. Besides the similarity, the 2021 BMW X5 is about to install a more powerful M version.The interior space may be narrower due to the sloped roof, which means that the new SUV will have only five seats and less cargo room. On the basis of BMW I7, the 2021 BMW X5 will be more aggressive in its design. The exterior styling is bold and eye-catching while the interior offers less space but more features. The I8 will take the place of the X6 and X6M. topping the range among the BMW cars. Though the exact price remains unclear, it is certain that the 2021 BMW X5 will be more expensive than the vehicle with a standard shape compared with other segments. Now let us talk about its styling and design. The first images of the 2021 BMW X5 are published last week. It seems that fans expect the new SUV like the I7 with the sloped roof line and even larger grille than its sibling. In fact, everything seems to be bigger on the new SUV, including air vents, bumper and the slim headlights. If the front end of the new model reminds you of I7, the rear is more like the I6. But there are some unique features for the new SUV, especially in the B-pillars toward the rear end. The sloping roof is definitely a key point which affects many other details to change.The biggest difference between the 2021 BMW X5 lies in the space. The upcoming BMW roadster will offer less room, so there won’t be more than 75 cubic-feet available behind the front row. To add to the worries, the new roof-line design will also affect the headroom for passengers in the rear row. Given that problem, the German manufacturer tries to make up that problem with advance technologies and high quality materials. So, the 2021 BMW X8 is about to have five seats and a 12-inch screen at the center of the cockpit. There are other small changes making it different from the ole model. However, the majority remains the same. Buyers are able to choose several types of leather depending on a trim level. A rear-seat entertaining package with headrest screens is also available. It is worth to mention that Panoramic Sky Lounge is probably the coolest upgrade for the BMW X5. The two-tone interior and the engine room have a few option. The main source of power will be the same as the I7. But the 2021 BMW X8 will be lighter and more aerodynamic than I7, which will help the SUV achieve a better 0-60 mph sprint time. If BMW X5 is within your purchase power, why not try it and have an impressive driving experience? Come on!

Toyota Hilux Revo Double Cab Disappeared in the US, Why?

Americans often joke that the Toyota Hilux Revo Double Cab can go anywhere, except North America. Why do they say that? Let this article tell you the answer.The Toyota Hilux is one of the world's most famous utility vehicles. In addition to its impressive performance and strong road presence, its smooth and comfortable ride and luxurious interior make the Toyota Hilux an unforgettable pickup truck. It's so popular, but it's not easy to find a Toyota Hilux in North America, especially a new one. What is it about the Toyota Hilux that makes it so rare in the U.S. and Canada, when it could easily beat out its rival competition? Before we discuss why the Toyota Hilux prerunner 2x4 2.4e at is not sold in the United States, let's talk about what makes the Toyota Hilux famous worldwide. In March 1968, Toyota introduced the Hilux to the Japanese market. In 1972, the Toyota Hilux replaced three other Toyota models in the North American market, and it was thanks to its second generation that the Hilux managed to gain a foothold in the North American market. With a significantly upgraded interior, the Toyota Hilux did not forget its mission, which was to be a comfortable, smooth and versatile pickup truck. the Toyota Hilux proved itself amazingly durable right from the start, lasting even decades. Toyota claims the Hilux is the most rugged car in the world. in 2007, Jeremy Clarkson took a 1988 Toyota Hilux to Top Gear to see if Toyota was right about the Hilux. Clarkson took the Hilux on a series of crazy missions to see the Toyota The 1988 Toyota Hilux has 190,000 miles on it, but it still passed many obstacle tests, towing tests, and water and fire tests. As mentioned earlier, the Toyota Hilux proved itself, made a name for itself, and became more powerful. In the 90s, the Toyota Hilux was the only choice for work fleets. Owners loved their cars because not only could it perform a wide variety of tasks, but it also offered a comfortable ride and had a bit of a luxurious interior. Despite this, the Toyota Hilux disappeared from the North American market in 1995. Part of the reason for Toyota's decision to pull the Hilux from the North American market may have been related to emissions and safety standards. Now, Toyota no longer produces the Hilux in the U.S., replacing it with a new model tailored to American consumers: the Toyota Tacoma. In fact, the Toyota Hilux could be imported back into the U.S. market because it still has a reputation. But due to a new auto tax policy implemented by the U.S. government, imports of light trucks built outside the U.S. are subject to a 25 percent tariff. That 25 percent tariff makes the Toyota Hilux too expensive to compete with other small pickups in the U.S. market. If the Hilux were made by Toyota in the U.S., buyers would no longer have to pay the additional 25 percent tariff. Even though the Toyota Hilux has disappeared from the U.S. market, its myth lives on, and the love and pining of its fans continues to grow. Thus the replacement of Toyota Hilux, Toyota Tacoma, has been the biggest beneficiary. Toyota Tacoma has been the successful successor of Hilux since 1995. Although it looks similar to the Hilux in many ways, some differences make the Tacoma more suitable for American buyers. As a result, the Hilux remains Toyota's most famous and durable pickup truck, and it continues to write its own chapter around the world in different ways.
