Subaru’s Hybrid Technology without the Compromises

shutterstock_232152883

The carmakers had a different goal altogether in the beginning. To start with the goals, some of them were to offer lower emissions, symmetrical drivetrain and enhanced fuel-efficiency.

The result of all these features is, of course, the superior Hybrid System from Subaru. The system offers an appealing list of eco-friendly benefits. This is a unique vehicle that will not compromise on its capability, no matter what the road conditions are, versatility in the real sense and great fun to be driving. It is the perfect blend of capability of a car with an honest conscience.

How it shaped up?

It was a tough challenge for Subaru’s engineers to add batteries, as well as an electric motor in the same vehicle. The aim was to make sure that the distribution of weight was similar as compared to its standard non-hybrid variant.

Other objectives included fine-tuning the vehicle’s suspension system and preserving similar low center of gravity so that superior driving dynamics can be easily delivered. The ultimate output was the effortless fusion of two compact electric motors, the famous full-time and symmetrical AWD system along with a powerful pack of batteries.

Electric motor

The Hybrid System from Subaru boasts of an electric motor that delivers high performance. It can offer the functionality of driving in an electrical or EV mode or can also function in conjunction with its gasoline engine. Subaru’s electric motor is used for fast and efficient recharge of its battery. Such a motor is environmentally friendly to due to its reduced emissions.

Subaru Reveals WRX STI Time Attack

RTHTR

Subaru, the Japanese automobile maker has come out with a road-legal and new version of the WRX STI. The company is hopeful of setting a new record in the month of May this year.

The model is being backed by the USA division of Subaru. The WRX STI is the all new race car that is legal on the road. This Japanese car manufacturer may once again reignite its much talked-about partnership with Prodrive, a Britain-based company that used to manufacture the WRC cars from Subaru.

It has been declared that Mark Higgins, the famous British rally driver and the present record-holder will drive the WRX STI Time Attack. It was in 2014 when Higgins had an incredible average of 187 km per hour and set the best time in a WRX STI of about 19 minutes and 25 seconds.

Though the roads were narrow, had big jumps with different types of walls, rocks and trees to cross as well as sheep and lamp posts to avoid, he was successful in topping 258 km per hour in his 2.5 liters STI.

Subaru declared that very little modifications were made to its 2014 model apart from some new springs, internal fire extinguisher, roll cage, Dunlop Derezza tires, and dampers. The all-new STI is truly a delight for all those enthusiasts who love fast sports cars.

Subaru claims that the new version is also road legal. The WRX STI is highly-tuned and is reportedly much more powerful compared to its street version.

2017 Chrysler Pacifica Scores Near Top on Minivan Mpg

2017-pacifica-performance-stability

The upcoming Chrysler Pacifica is one of the strongest contenders when it comes to fuel economy in its class. The Chrysler Pacifica of 2017 provides a fuel mileage of about 28 mpg on highways and is a fuel-efficient alternative to gasoline thirsty SUVs and large crossovers. Within the city, the Pacifica returns a respectable 18 mpg with a combined mileage overall of approximately 22 MPG.

The figures are competitive when measured against the Town & Country’s (2016 model) mileage of 25 mpg on a highway, 20 mpg when driven on both city roads and highways and 17 mpg when driven inside the city. The mileage delivered by this all-new minivan makes it one of the most highly efficient vehicles in the class to which it belongs.

While the fuel economy numbers are certainly impressive for the standard 3.6L V6 engine that provides a horsepower of 287 with a smooth 9-speeed automatic transmission; those looking for excellent fuel economy have something more to look forward to. Later this year, Chrysler will release a plug-in hybrid version of the Pacifica. While there is yet to be definitive numbers, Chrysler has stated that the innovative vehicle could achieve up to 80 MPGe. Additionally, Chrysler would implement the usage of a stop-start feature that can increase the fuel economy numbers in the real-world as well.

When compared to top competitors like the Toyota Sienna and Kia Sedona, the Chrysler Pacifica meets or exceeds their fuel economy numbers, providing a brand new approach to minivan driving that is modern, stylish, luxurious and best of all, fuel efficient.

If you want to test drive a Chrysler Pacifica, or get a great deal on the outgoing but popular Chrysler Town and Country, you can visit Pine Belt to do so.
