New 2015 Jaguar XE revealed: technology, specs, price and full details

Article file under

The Jaguar XE, a new compact executive car from the British brand, has been revealed. The car's release date will be after its debut at the 2014 Paris Motor Show in October, with the first deliveries in May 2015. The new Jaguar XE price range starts at about £27,000 for the entry-level model.

Some of the most important cars for the premium manufacturers compete in this class, with the mighty BMW 3 Series, the impressive Mercedes C-Class and soon-to-be-replaced Audi A4 already battling it out. 

Jaguar has challenged itself in entering this crucial  sector in 2015. The car is a result of around £2bn worth of investment in a new factory on Land Rover’s home turf in Solihull, W Mids. The car's bodyshell is mostly aluminium and is constructed here, and the plant will also assemble the XE. A new engine plant in Wolverhampton is also set to produce the car's efficient new Ingenium engines. 

The XE has created more than 3,000 new jobs in the UK and will significantly boost Jaguar sales, which in this country at least lag behind Land Rover three to one. So is the new car up to it?

2015 Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4

Article file under

All good things must come to an end, so the Gallardo 
is packing things up and moving out of Lamborghini’s entry-level supercar spot to make room for a brand new baby. Rumors swirled about the name of this new supercar, and the final decision was Huracán LP 610-4 and not "Cabrera," as we initially thought.

The Huracán LP 610-4’s name is derived from a fighting bull from 1879. This Spanish Conte de la Patilla breed of bull was unrelenting and thrust himself into bull-fighting stardom courage and strong sense of attack.

This new new Lamborghini 
will make its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show in 2014, but it will also have more than 130 private showings that start in January. We expect to see it in dealers starting in mid- to late-2014.

Honda To Debut New VTEC Turbo Engine In Next-Gen StepWgn

Article file under

Last year, Honda announced that it has developed a new series of turbocharged direct injection petrol engines for small- and medium-sized vehicles. Dubbed VTEC Turbo, Honda's latest engine series will come in three sizes - 2-litre four cylinder, 1.5-litre four cylinder and 1.0-litre three cylinder.

Honda To Debut New VTEC Turbo Engine In Next-Gen StepWgn

The 2-litre VTEC Turbo is expected to make its global debut in the European market Civic Type-R in 2015, but there is no official announcement yet for the smaller displacement VTEC Turbo engines.
However a report by Japan's Nikkei says the 1.5-litre VTEC Turbo will make its debut in the Japanese market StepWgn.
No further details were mentioned, but considering that the current generation StepWgn (below) was launched in Japan in 2009, and the fact that previous generation StepWgn models have model life of around five years, the next generation model may arrive in late 2014 or early 2015.

The current generation StepWgn is powered by a 2.0-litre i-VTEC engine that produces 150 PS of power at 6,200 rpm and 193 Nm of torque at 4,200 rpm.
While Honda has revealed that the 2.0-litre VTEC Turbo engine will produce more than 280 hp (and still meets Euro 6 emission regulations), no power output figures are available for the smaller displacement VTEC Turbo engines. However it is safe to say that the succeeding 1.5-litre VTEC Turbo will have to match or exceed the current 2.0-litre naturally aspirated engine's output.
