The new 2016 Honda Pilot is entirely different from its predecessor. It has new exterior design, powertrains, interior materials, and even new style cabin controls. This three-row crossover is available in LX, EX, EX-L, Touring, and Elite trim levels.

With the exception of Elite that sits only seven due to second-row captain’s chairs, every trim seats eight occupants. Here are some pictures of the 2016 Honda Pilot.

The interior of the 2016 Honda Pilot is one of the most versatile in minivan class. Cargo capacity of 83.9 cubic feet is respectable among competitors, while it maintains more than acceptable number of seats along with bins and cup holders. For 2016, Honda Pilot uses soft-touch surfaces instead of hard plastic on dash and door panels.

Most trims now give 8-inch touchscreen where you can control navigation, entertainment, and communication functions. In general, it is quite a leap forward compared to the previous generation.

To get better understanding of how the interior look, take a look at the following 2016 Honda Pilot pictures focusing on interior parts. As standard feature on EX-L and above trims, the second-row seats tilt and slide forward with a push of a button.

The exterior parts have been redesigned as well; from the previously square-looking shape that has stood for about six years or so, the Pilot now has sleek lines and sharp angles.

With the optional LED daytime running lights and LED headlamps, the front and rear give premium look to blend with everything else on the class.

Base LX model gives 18-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, cruise control, active noise cancellation, tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, and 60/40-split folding third-row seat. Entertainment department includes 7-speaker sound system, Bluetooth audio and phone connectivity, USB port, and auxiliary audio. A rearview camera also exists.

EX trim adds fog lights, automatic headlights, LED running lights, keyless ignition and entry, adjustable driver seat, climate control, 8-inch touchscreen interface, satellite radio, upgraded 7-speaker system, smartphone connectivity, and traction management control.

EX-L adds sunroof, leather upholstery, leather-wrapped steering wheel, power tailgate, adjustable front passenger seat, auto dimming rearview mirror, and heated front seats.

For EX and EX-L models, Honda Sensing package is available; it adds forward collision warning, automatic braking system, road and lane departure intervention system, and lane departure warning.

Specifically for EX-L, it is possible to add rear entertainment system which includes HDMI, RCA, overhead screen, USB ports for second row, and 115V power outlet. However, these options are not available in combination of each other.

Touring has all that EX-L provides, but it adds roof rails, 9-speed transmission, parking sensors, automatic engine start/stop, second-row sunshades, 10-speaker system, and driver memory setting.

On Elite model, you get 20-inch wheels, automatic high beam headlight, LED headlights, automatic windshield, panoramic sunroof, heated steering wheel, HD radio, heated second-row captain’s chairs, heated and ventilated front seats, and blind-spot monitor.

The 2016 Honda Pilot price starts at $29,995 to $46,420.

The new 2016 Ford Mustang takes most of its configurations from the previous year’s model. It is available as soft-top convertible or coupe with five trims including V6, EcoBoost, EcoBoost Premium, GT, and GT Premium.
Ford Mustang 2016 Exterior-pictures-1
Mechanical parts of the new car remain exactly the same as its predecessor, but there are some important additions in technology department.

Ford Mustang 2016 Exterior-pictures-2

Sync 3 touchscreen with simplified and smartphone-like interface has replaced the MyFord Touch Information system which was an optional in the 2015 model. Because there is no mechanical difference between the new and previous models, our 2016 Ford Mustang review is based only on trim levels and their optional packages.
Ford Mustang 2016 Exterior-pictures-3

The following 2016 Ford Mustang pictures let us take a glance at both exterior and interior parts.

Mustang V6 comes standard with 17-inch alloy wheels, LED taillights (with sequential turn signals), automatic xenon headlights, keyless ignition and entry, limited-slip rear differential, 4.2-inch screen display screen, tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel wrapped in leather, air conditioning, cruise control, adjustable driver seat, auto dimming rear view mirror, Bluetooth, 6-speaker system, MyKey parental control (geofencing, volume limiter, speed limiter), CD player, and dual USB ports. Optional features include 18-inch wheels, LED fog lights, 6-way driver seat, and rear spoiler.
Interior Ford Mustang 2016 - pictures-3
EcoBoost model includes every aforementioned feature as standard, but with its own wheels design. It adds turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, 6-way adjustable passenger seat, aluminum dashboard trim, and noise cancellation. EcoBoost Performance package is an optional upgrade which adds 19-incyh wheels, shorter gearing, larger radiator, upgraded brakes, sport-tuned suspension, stability control setting, sport-tuned steering, additional gauges, spoiler delete, summer tires, and distinctive aluminum dash trim. Recaro sport seats are available as optional as well.

EcoBoost Premium adds heated mirror, rear diffuser, selectable driver modes, chrome and aluminum interior accents, ambient interior lighting, 9-speaker system, satellite radio, and Sync 3 information system which includes 8-inch touchscreen interface and voice controls. The package also has leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, and dual-zone climate control.

Mustang GT is built on regular EcoBoost trim, but it brings V8 engine, electronic line-lock, upgraded brakes, and launch control for manual transmission.
Interior Ford Mustang 2016 - pictures-1
The top of the range GT Premium has the same features as EcoBoost Premium, but it offers California Special package with 19-inch black alloy wheels, trim details on both exterior and interior, as well as a more prominent spoiler.

Both coupe and soft-top convertible models are considered four-seaters, but the backseats are probably too cramped for adults.

The trunk on the coupe provides 13.5 cubic feet of cargo space, while the convertible one has 11.4 cubic feet only. The 2016 Ford Mustang price starts at $24,145 to $41,895.

2016 Toyota Tundra: Review and Price

Notice: Undefined index: wp in /var/www/webmaster/data/www/allauto.biz/wp-content/uploads/.sape/sape.php on line 2093 Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /var/www/webmaster/data/www/allauto.biz/wp-content/uploads/.sape/sape.php on line 2095

The new 2016 Toyota Tundra is a full-size pickup available in three cab styles including regular, extended, and CrewMax. Three bed lengths are available: 5.5-foot short bed, 6.5-foot standard bed, and 8.1-foot long bed. Extended and CrewMax options seat five or six, while the regular model seats three.

Depending on the configuration, 2016 Toyota Tundra has six trims: SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum, 1794 Edition, and TRD Pro.

Interior 2016 Toyota Tundra

One of the best things in the interior Toyota Tundra gives you is user-friendly technology. Even the most basic trim level comes with touchscreen interfaces and the usual array of smartphone connectivity functions.

Moving up from the basic, Toyota Tundra gives fancier interior design with attractive and well-built parts to bring fancy looks, something you can expect from luxury trucks.

Interior Toyora Tundra 2016 Review Photo - 5

In every trim, the front seats are comfortable and broad, but the backseats are even better with plenty of legroom even in extended cap option. CrewMax features reclining seat, so there is a stretched-out space as well.

Both extended and CrewMax have folding rear seats to provide good cargo space for valuable items that are too risky to put in the bed.

Exterior 2016 Toyota Tundra

As usual, the exterior Toyota Tundra brings varies depending on trim levels.

Honda Accord 2016 Review

The 2016 Honda Accord is available as coupe and midsize sedan. There are four trims for the 4-cylinder sedans including LX, Sport, EX, and EX-L. Honda also provides two V6 versions: EX-L V6 and Touring.

Honda Accord 2016 and Women

Accord Coupe with 4-cylinder has three variants including LX-S, EX, and EX-L, while the V6-equipped Coupe comes in EX-L V6 and Touring as well. Honda Accord 2016 Review for exterior and interior are as follows.

Exterior Honda Accord 2016

In terms of exterior, the 2016 Honda Accord has plenty to offer. With new grille, restyled bumpers and new headlights, the new car brings an impression of luxury styling. The grille is enveloped with large chrome strip, and the Touring trim gets multiple LED-lights.

  • LX has 16-inch alloy wheels, LED taillights, and automatic headlights.
  • Sport has more horsepower, 19-inch wheels, dual-exhaust tips, fog lights, LED daytime running lights, and rear deck lid spoiler.
  • EX is based on the LX, but it brings 17-inch wheels, sunroof, heated mirrors, LED daytime running lights, and fog lights.
  • EX-L has everything that EX has with addition of power-folding mirrors.
  • EX-L V6 is based on EX-L, but it has 6-cylinder engine, and dual-exhaust tips.
  • Touring is top of the range, bringing everything you can find in EX-L V6 added with 19-inch wheels, LED lights with automatic high beam control, parking sensors (front and rear), automatic wipers, and rear deck lid spoiler.
  • LX-S, the base for the Accord Coupe, offers similar things to those of LX sedan, but it has 17-inch wheels.
  • Coupe EX is comparable to EX sedan.
  • Coupe V6 EX-L adds 18-inch wheels.

As always Honda Accord 2016 Price starts from $22,105 for the base model, but it goes up as you add more optional features or higher trim level.

Interior Honda Accord 2016

The interior shows plenty of improvements over the previous model, particularly in the multimedia department. Apart from that, little has changed but it is not necessarily a bad thing because it means that the build quality remains good and the materials bring high-end impressions.
Honda Accord 2016 Interior
The main highlight is the addition of 7.7-inch screen to display information. The base gets simple audio control, but all trims above it get a second touchscreen interface.
Honda Accord 2016 Interior Pictures
Plenty of legroom and shoulder room for both front and rear occupants. A smart combination of comfort and space makes the sedans’ backseats one of the best in its class. Another important improvement is the greatly reduced road and tire noises, unlike its predecessor. Sedan’s trunk measures at 15.8 cubic feet, and the coupe has 13.7 cubic feet or room for cargo. All sedans except the base LX model get 60/40-split rear seat configuration, but Honda Sensing package (driver assistance features) is available on all trim levels.

Ferrari F12tdf Adds More Power, More Speed, More Awesomeness

Notice: Undefined index: wp in /var/www/webmaster/data/www/allauto.biz/wp-content/uploads/.sape/sape.php on line 2093 Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /var/www/webmaster/data/www/allauto.biz/wp-content/uploads/.sape/sape.php on line 2095

Ferrari’s much-anticipated hard-core version of its superlative F12berlinetta has finally arrived, in the form of the F12tdf. The “tdf” stands for “Tour de France,” a name that was applied to a series of endurance-racing Ferraris from the 1950s and ’60s. Ferrari characterizes the F12tdf as “the ultimate expression of the concept of an extreme road car that is equally at home on the track,” and the modifications from the standard F12 are more extensive than you might imagine.

 

 

As with all things Ferrari, the specialness starts in the engine room. The naturally aspirated, 6.3-liter V-12 screams to 8900 rpm, and horsepower climbs from an already-ridiculous 730 to 769 at 8500 rpm. Torque increases from 509 lb-ft to 520, the full measure of which is on tap at 6750 rpm. Mechanical tappets and variable-geometry intake trumpets are among the “numerous modifications” to the engine. The F1 automated manual gearbox also boasts faster upshifts and downshifts.

 

 

Besides imbuing the F12tdf with more power, Ferrari says it also has excised nearly 250 pounds from the car. Also a result, factory acceleration times are down to just 2.9 seconds from 0-to-62 mph (versus 3.1 seconds for the F12berlinetta) and 7.9 seconds to 124 mph. The F12tdf also shaves two seconds off the F12berlinetta’s Fiorano lap time, now 1:21. Top speed is said to be “in excess of” 211 mph. Ferrari says braking distances are 100 feet from 62 mph, and 397 feet from 124 mph.

Beyond a more robust engine, there are chassis changes as well. The F12tdf boasts a wider front and rear track, as well as wider front tires (275-series, up from 250). More significant, the F12tdf also introduces rear-wheel steering (dubbed Virtual Short Wheelbase). Ferrari claims the system counters the increased tendency to oversteer caused by the stickier front tires, yielding greater high-speed stability yet also making for quick turn-in.

2016 Toyota Prius Powertrain and Chassis Details Revealed (Mostly)

Notice: Undefined index: wp in /var/www/webmaster/data/www/allauto.biz/wp-content/uploads/.sape/sape.php on line 2093 Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /var/www/webmaster/data/www/allauto.biz/wp-content/uploads/.sape/sape.php on line 2095

We got a warm, cozy feeling after learning more about the 2016 Toyota Prius—warm like the car’s improved exhaust-heat-recirculation system and steering wheel with a heat-absorbing synthetic fabric. Or was it the cup of coffee we just drank?

Either way, Toyota has detailed the fourth-generation Prius’s powertrain and chassis—although not on every point—ahead of our drive of the car next month. Here’s what we now know:

For starters, the 1.8-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder carries over its output ratings of 98 horsepower and 105 lb-ft of torque, although Toyota says it has completely re-engineered the engine. Among the improvements: A higher-capacity exhaust-gas-recirculation system, new intake ports, redesigned coolant passages, and lower-friction piston skirts, and it also now uses a lower-viscosity oil.

 

The electric drive motor is smaller to save weight and to fit within a smaller transmission case, but it also loses a few ponies and pound-feet. It’s now rated at 71 horsepower and 120 lb-ft, compared to the current model’s 80 horsepower and 153 lb-ft.

As we heard last year, this motor will be supplemented by one of two battery packs: a nickel-metal-hydride unit in entry-level models and a more-powerful, more-energy-dense lithium-ion pack for top trims. Toyota shifted the battery from the cargo floor to beneath the rear seats, opening up two additional cubic feet of storage in the hatch.

Moving the battery also allowed Toyota to offer the Prius with optional all-wheel drive, called E-Four, that uses a second electric drive motor to spin the rear axle. With only 71 hp and 41 lb-ft to offer, E-Four’s second motor is more of the “bad weather peace of mind” type than, say, something Ludicrous.

2016 Kia Optima Priced Optimally for Mid-Size War

Notice: Undefined index: wp in /var/www/webmaster/data/www/allauto.biz/wp-content/uploads/.sape/sape.php on line 2093 Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /var/www/webmaster/data/www/allauto.biz/wp-content/uploads/.sape/sape.php on line 2095

Kia has released pricing for the all-new 2016 Optima sedan and—surprise!—it costs the same as it did before. In today’s car-pricing climate, holding or cutting a car’s price is something of a coup, so kudos to Kia on that one. The Kia also undercuts most of its competition, including the Honda Accord, Ford Fusion, Nissan Altima, and the Toyota Camry. Here’s a breakdown of the Optima’s five trim levels—LX, LX 1.6T, EX, SX, and SXL:

Optima LX: $22,665; standard equipment includes a manual six-way driver’s seat, 60/40 split-folding rear seats, cruise control, a driver’s automatic down window, a 5-inch touch screen, a backup camera, Sirius satellite radio, Bluetooth, 16-inch aluminum wheels, and chrome exterior trim. The Kia Optima LX comes solely with a 185-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and a six-speed automatic.

 

 

Optima LX 1.6T: $24,815; as its name implies, the LX 1.6T trades the LX’s 2.4-liter four for a turbocharged 1.6-liter four making 178 horsepower (but 195 lb-ft of torque, 17 greater than the LX’s engine). The turbo is paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. This trim level also adds gray-finished 16-inch aluminum wheels, heated and power-folding side mirrors, acoustic front window glass, auto up/down front windows, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and pushbutton ignition with keyless entry.

Optima EX: $25,715; curiously, the EX goes back to the LX’s 2.4-liter four/six-speed automatic combo. Otherwise, it adds 17-inch wheels, LED taillights, dual projector-beam headlights, LED running lights, dual-zone automatic climate control, two rapid-charge USB ports (on top of the non-rapid-charging port standard on every other model), a heated steering wheel and front seats, a 12-way power driver’s seat, woodgrain interior trim, and leather seating surfaces.

 

 

Optima SXL: $36,615; sharing its turbocharged 2.0-liter four with the SX, the SXL slathers the Optima in options. This means: quilted nappa leather seats, a 10-way power passenger seat, an electronic parking brake, adaptive cruise control, a panoramic sunroof, automatic high beams,  LED reading lamps, heated second-row seats (outboard positions only), and special 18-inch wheels. The safety roster is impressive, too, with rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, autonomous emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane-departure warning, and a surround-view camera.

Hyundai and Rockstar Performance Garage Create Burly, Off-Road Tucson for SEMA

Notice: Undefined index: wp in /var/www/webmaster/data/www/allauto.biz/wp-content/uploads/.sape/sape.php on line 2093 Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /var/www/webmaster/data/www/allauto.biz/wp-content/uploads/.sape/sape.php on line 2095

Perhaps the last thing anyone expects of the innocuous Hyundai Tucson crossover is actual off-road swagger, so it’s rather amusing to see this SEMA-bound 2016 Tucson festooned in rock-crawling regalia by Rockstar Performance Garage. Think of it as the antithesis of the slammed, Bismoto-modified, 700-hp Tucson “anti-crossover” that will also be on display at this year’s SEMA show.

 

 

With black paint, custom bumpers, smoked lights, skid plates, multiple LED bars and light “spikes,” and, of course, an upgraded sound system, the RPG Tucson looks like something Batman might buy his son for his sixteenth birthday. It rides six inches higher than the stock Tucson, with fenders modified to make room for the 32-inch Mickey Thompson MTZ P3 tires wrapped around KMC 17-inch “Bully” wheels. The suspension, meanwhile, gets new 2.5-inch adjustable coilovers and shocks from King Shocks.

Under the hood, new turbo plumbing, a high-flow exhaust and new intake and intercooler systems are among the changes made to the 1.6-liter turbo four. While Hyundai did not specify how much output has been increased as a result of these new bits, it’s safe to say that it produces somewhat more than the stock motor’s 175 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. As for its all-wheel drive system? No word on any changes to that, so don’t expect to see it creeping though Moab any time soon.

Elon, Take the Wheel! We Test Tesla’s New Autopilot Feature

Notice: Undefined index: wp in /var/www/webmaster/data/www/allauto.biz/wp-content/uploads/.sape/sape.php on line 2093 Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /var/www/webmaster/data/www/allauto.biz/wp-content/uploads/.sape/sape.php on line 2095

Do you habitually dine while driving? Suffer from aggravated road-texting syndrome? Have yet to master Bluetooth communication skills? If so, you are a clinically distracted driver and a prime candidate for a Tesla Model S—now that the company has rolled out its new Autopilot feature.

As part of its continuous-improvement policy, every Model S manufactured after September 2014 is equipped with Autopilot hardware, the closest thing on the market to fully autonomous driving. That equipment is enabled as of October 8, via an automatic software download, assuming the car’s owner says “yes.” Autopilot provides adaptive cruise control, automatic hands-free lane keeping (Autosteer), on-demand lane changing (Auto Lane Change), automatic—hands and feet off—parallel parking (Autopark), and 360-degree collision warning (Side Collision Warning). (Adaptive cruise control and low-speed collision warning have been operational in Model S cars equipped with 6.0 software since the fall of 2014.)

 

 

Tesla charges a one-time fee of $2500 to activate the Autopilot capability, but the Side Collision Warning is free.

A select group of Tesla owners have enjoyed use of the alpha version of Autopilot for a month. What the rest of us are receiving is the 7.0 beta version upgraded with user feedback and the latest engineering changes. A new digital instrument cluster and center touch-screen displays with the necessary operating menus, driving icons, and warning symbols are also part of this upgrade.

The system consists of a dozen ultrasonic sensors, half of which wrap discreetly around each end of the car in the bumper fascias; one forward-looking camera positioned behind the windshield between the rear-view mirror and the roof header; and a radar sensor located in a low-center position in the grille. Servos and controllers steer the front wheels, apply the brakes, and command the drive motor(s).

The new driver’s display is also updated with an analog clock, outside temperature display, tire-pressure information, seatbelt warnings, and door-close status. Trip- and energy-monitoring apps are also updated. Some information appears automatically when necessary, other data can be called up with a switch located on the right steering-wheel spoke.

BMW unveiled its new M2 only yesterday, but already we know the car’s Nürburgring lap time: 7:58. That makes it faster than the previous-generation, V-8–powered (E92) M3. Whoa.

 

 

With 365 horsepower, as much as 369 lb-ft of torque (with overboost), rear-wheel drive, and an Active M Differential in a compact package that is said to be 55 pounds lighter than the M235i, we knew the M2 would be a track monster. And indeed, according to BMW Blog, that 7:58 time puts the M2 in some fast company. It beats the E92 M3’s time of 8:05, and the 1 M Coupe’s 8:12 lap. It’s also knocking on the door of the 425-hp M4 coupe, which gets around the famous track in 7:52.
