MORE 2009 NYIAS @ INSIDELINE.COM: www.edmunds.com Kia is entering the compact coupe fray this spring with a production version of last year's Koup concept, introduced at the 2009 New York Auto Show. The 2010 Forte Koup shares its underpinnings with the new Forte sedan that was displayed in February at the Chicago show. Slightly shorter and lower than the sedan, the five-passenger Forte Koup is aimed at such competitors as the Scion tC, the Honda Civic, the Chevrolet Cobalt and the Ford Focus. It is being offered in two trim levels, EX and SX. The Forte Koup EX comes with a 156-horsepower DOHC 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and a choice of five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission. Its EPA city/highway fuel economy numbers are 25 mpg and 34 mpg, respectively, with either transmission. The Forte Koup SX gets a larger, more powerful DOHC 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 173 hp and 168 pound-feet of torque. With the standard six-speed manual transmission, it is EPA rated at 22/32 mpg, while the optional five-speed automatic changes the fuel-economy ratings to 23/31 mpg. Both models come with standard air conditioning, tilt steering column, power windows and locks, remote keyless entry, cruise control and a six-speaker AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio system with steering-wheel-mounted audio controls and full iPod controls. The Forte Koup SX is the trim level of choice. It comes with 17-inch alloy wheels and 215/45R-17 tires, as well as sport cloth bucket seats with ...

MORE 2009 NYIAS @ INSIDELINE.COM: www.edmunds.com It's the civility you notice first. There is no drama here — no compromises that have to be made in order to enjoy the turbocharged performance. In fact, when VW first developed the 2010 Volkswagen GTI, it proved to be so quiet that the engineers had to develop an electronic "sound generator" to deliver the proper aural stimulation to the driver. When the 2010 VW GTI debuts alongside the standard 2010 Volkswagen Golf (née Rabbit, as VW has decided to return to this car's traditional model name even for the US market), it will be presented as a sophisticated German alternative to the Honda Civic Si and Mazda 3. It will debut at the 2009 New York Auto Show and finally reach showrooms in October. The price of the two-door hatchback will start from around $24000, while the four-door version will cost about $500 more.
I was asked by this gentleman if I could help him propose to his girlfriend in front of the G37 Convertible at the 2009 NY International Auto Show. It was all improvised and the NY Post happened to catch all of it.
MORE 2009 NYIAS @ INSIDELINE.COM: www.edmunds.com The revised 2010 Land Rover LR4 continues in the LR3's footsteps as the most versatile Land Rover. The functional and spacious interior gets a clean new design, and under the hood, the hefty LR4 gets a 25 percent horsepower boost thanks to a new V8. The extra grunt, combined with some new electronic tech, eases towing chores, and the LR4 should maintain the marque's lofty off-road reputation. Fresh from its launch in the 2010 Jaguars, a direct-injection 5.0-liter V8 motivates the US-bound LR4 with 375 hp and 375 pound-feet of torque). For all-terrain duty in the Land Rover, the Jag V8 has been modified with a deep oil sump, unique intake manifolds and waterproof drive accessories (starter, alternator, air-conditioner, etc.). The V8 will be paired with a revised six-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. Sadly, the new 3.0 TDI V6 introduced in the Euro-market LR4 will not be headed Stateside. This new diesel knocks out 443 lb-ft of torque while exceeding 30 mpg on the British test cycle thanks to a crafty dual-mode setup for the twin turbos, which can work either sequentially or in parallel. We'd probably hate having all that torque, combined with decent fuel mileage. Compared to the LR3, the LR4 is meant to emphasize superior on-road dynamics, and a stiffer front antiroll bar is teamed with new suspension geometry to quicken steering response and reduce body roll. A new, variable-ratio power steering setup aims ...

MORE 2009 NYIAS @ INSIDELINE.COM: blogs.edmunds.com Mazda released this photo and a brief description of the mildly revised 2010 CX-9 this morning. According to the teaser release, the CX-9 "receives an exterior and interior facelift, added options and reinforced safety features, while further improving Zoom-Zoom driving characteristics." We're not sure what that last part entails, but we'll be sure to get clarification when the 2010 CX-9 makes its debut at the 2009 New York Auto Show next month.
MORE 2009 NYIAS @ INSIDELINE.COM: www.edmunds.com Hyundai has released a darkened image of a crossover concept dubbed Nuvis that features dramatic gullwing doors. The all-wheel-drive Nuvis will make its formal debut next week at the 2009 New York Auto Show. "It's just a concept," said Hyundai Motor America spokesman Dan Bedore in a conversation with Inside Line on Wednesday. "We are not announcing a new product. It foretells future design direction." He added: "It does have gullwing doors." "What are other dramatic features?" Inside Line asked. Bedore responded: "The gullwing doors in a crossover are dramatic enough." He did confirm that the Nuvis rides on an all-wheel-drive platform and that it is not based on the popular Hyundai Genesis sedan or coupe. "There will be more powertrain details [announced in New York City]," Bedore said. In a statement, Hyundai Motor America described the Nuvis as "hint[ing] at a possible design direction for a future-generation crossover, blending attributes of a tall urban car and a premium utility vehicle." It said the Nuvis is the 11th concept car to come out of Hyundai's California Design Center in Irvine, California. While Bedore offered no confirmation, it is natural to speculate that the Nuvis may be based on the Hyundai Santa Fe or the Hyundai Veracruz. The Santa Fe freshening is due to be unveiled at the end of 2009. It also appears that Hyundai may be continuing to move upmarket and targeting such competitors as the 2010 Lexus RX ...
Mercedes-Benz Highlights New York International Auto Show 2009 E-Class Saloon E AMG 63
MORE 2009 NYIAS @ INSIDELINE.COM: www.edmunds.com AMG, Mercedes' in-house hot-rod shop, might have recently called an end to the horsepower war it helped instigate, but the 518-hp 2010 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG indicates the company is not exactly ready to lay down its arms completely. True, this new model, which will be unveiled at the New York auto show, brings only an additional 11 hp to the E-Class hot rod, compared to the E63 it replaces. We grew accustomed to great leaps in power every time the E-Class AMG was renewed. The big 6.2-liter that arrived for 2007 brought a 38-hp bump from the previous car. And by slapping a supercharger on the 5.5-liter in 2003, AMG added a whopping 120 hp to the existing E55 AMG. So, by adding the powertrain of the SL63, AMG might not be catapulting over the new horsepower heavy in the class, the 556-hp Cadillac CTS-V, but 518 is still a staggering amount of juice. And its bark is as gnarly as its bite. An AMG official started up a 2010 E63 at a sneak peek of the car in Affalterbach, Germany, and gave the throttle a few quick stabs. It sounded very perturbed. In addition to the 518-hp rip-snorter of an engine, the E63 AMG also snatches from the SL63 its seven-speed AMG Speedshift MCT transmission. Unlike a conventional automatic transmission, this unit has no torque converter. Instead it uses a wet-clutch system in which a series of clutches (six in total) allows for quicker shifting and a more direct connection between the engine and the ...

MORE 2009 NYAS @ INSIDELINE.COM: www.edmunds.com The Dog-Friendly Honda Element debuted here at the 2009 New York Auto Show on Wednesday, with the Japanese automaker dubbing it "the ultimate dog car." A production version of the concept is due out this fall, said Honda. The production version is expected to feature such canine-friendly features as a cushioned pet bed in the cargo area, a cargo load-in ramp, a 12-volt ventilation fan, rubber floor mats with a toy bone pattern and paw-print exterior badging. "In an interesting turn of events, cars are now chasing dogs," quipped John Mendel, executive vice president of American Honda, in one of the auto show's more lighthearted moments. "Factory integration of a cushioned pet bed, restraint systems and other components are intended to transform the Element into the ultimate dog car." Honda execs are clearly "dog people." At the 2005 Tokyo Auto Show, Honda introduced another dog-friendly offering, the Wow — short for Wonderful Open-hearted Wagon. Last year, the company launched the Honda Dog Web site for the Japan market. It offers dog lovers information about pet-friendly hotels and the dimensions of cargo space in vehicles to help with dog cages and other paraphernalia. Other auto companies have ventured into the dog-lover demographic with limited success. They include Saab, which at one time offered dog leashes and collars, but has since discontinued them.
Gotta love that 6-speed! Jeep stays true to its heritage, providing people with a go anywhere do anything vehicle that's fun to drive too.

MORE 2009 NYAS @ INSIDELINE.COM: www.edmunds.com mO The 2009 New York Auto Show isn't like other auto shows. Only the New York show could attract 1.2 million people — more than the attendance of any other auto show in the country — and yet take place in a neighborhood where almost no one drives cars. The 2009 New York Auto Show takes place April 10-19 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in midtown Manhattan, overlooking the Hudson River. It's the final big-time car show until everyone meets in Frankfurt in September. We've looked at every car, and we're prepared to give you all the important news. There's an end-of-term feel to the New York show, as all the secret concepts have been uncovered, all the news has percolated to the surface and there's more talk about next year than this. Even so, this is an opportunity to see all the important showcars of the season, and there are more than 1000 vehicles of all persuasions within Javits Center's 846000 square feet of display space. As always, the public days for the show are a free-for-all of both hype and glamour, as with the daily giveaways on the Suzuki stand that include prizes, drawings, a sweepstakes and even $500 coupons toward a Suzuki purchase. Toyota has a daily talk show and Volvo is offering ride-alongs on the Inner Roadway. The Javits Center puts the displays on different floors, and if you know where to look, you'll find some pretty cool stuff. Down on Level 1, you'll discover a selection of custom cars at ...
