Looks like LED lighting is ever evolving into one heck of a technological creation after another. The Audi Q7 comes with xenon projectors, but for about 2,000 more Euros, you can get a Q7 with the Matrix LED system. This upgrade maximizes visibility but at the same time, doesn’t blind oncoming traffic. We all know of that one car in the intersection who has their high beams on that you start seeing light auras even after you have driven off. This is not only inconvenient, but it’s also extremely dangerous.
The Q7 will also have a new grille design for a stronger front end look, for those who love to have an SUV that has reliability and fierceness combined.
What’s under this mysterious camo wrap? A Mercedes-Benz E-Class! You can’t really tell what’s underneath all of that secrecy, but what we know for sure is that the E-class will be even more appealing when it comes to design. It will be using the Mercedes’ new MRA (Modular Rear Architecture) platform and it’s also the one being used by the C-class as well. The new E-Class will be powered by an inline-six engine and is the start of a grand scheme of things.
All we need to do now is to stay tuned to what’s happening in the world of Mercedes-Benz and maybe we will be able to the camo unwrapped soon enough.
The Nissan GT-R is something of a legend and it looks like this is the last facelift for the current generation of the Godzilla. The GT-R has had certain upgrades dedicated to it every year, and last year was the fine tuning for the "GT" over the "R", meaning that the both the speed and stability benefited from tweaking the suspension. We saw adaptive LED headlights and a slew of new exterior and interior colors, most befitting for the legend.
So what can we expect for the 2016 model? You will see bespoke Bilstein DampTronic shock absorbers. custom springs, Dunlop exclusive tires, and an updated suspension. After this generation, we may see a hybrid GT-R in 2017/2018 with an electric motor.
Looks like the we got a peek of the BMW 7 Series’ headlights in this week’s spy shot. There’s tons of LED technology here, and it will all be standard. There will be absolutely no need to buy the higher end premium package to get these LED lights now, although with the price tag a 7 Series commands, one would think it should be standard already. What this means is that laser lights, seen on the i8, will be an optional feature.
Expect the 7 Series to be the most technologically advanced car from BMW with the technology second to none. This includes parking assistance, Wi-Fi hotspot, Bowers & Wilkins audio, and next level drive assist. For those who love style, bi-color wheels will also be available starting summer 2015.
The BMW 1 Series has been spotted doing testing to cater to the consumer market following the success of cheaper entry level sedans. This is to compete with entry level sedans from Mercedes Benz and Audi, including the CLA and the A3. The car will have a different design from the hatchback due for an LCI next year as well. BMW fans can expect this car out on the market in late 2015 or early 2016 with a price that’s lower than the 2 Series.
