The current model of the Impala has been first released back in 2013 and since then it quickly became one of the better selling large sedans in its class. However, despite that the car is lacking a high performance version which is a bit of a shame when considering that some of its competitors do offer just that. In order to solve this small issue, GM is likely going to release the 2016 Chevy Impala SS in the next few months while the production model should be ready for the last part of 2016.

Buick is currently trying to become something more than just an average luxury car manufacturer so they started to release very impressive concept cars which at this point it seems that most of them will actually become production models. One of these cars is the 2017 Buick Riviera which is expected to become their first rear wheel drive car in a very long time. The car will be based on GM’s own Alpha platform and it will get improved or new engines over what it currently available on most of their other cars. Continue reading “2017 Buick Riviera Review”
Despite the fact Peugeot was losing a lot of sales back in 2008, the managed to recover quite nicely and most of their current cars sell just as good as those of their competitors. However, they still need a lot of work, especially with their crossover class which is a bit too cluttered and not that well structured. In order to change that, they are going to make their crossovers under the x008 brand which means that the current 5008 MPV is actually going to be discontinued and replaced with the 2016 Peugeot 6008, a medium size crossover that will offer seven seats as standard as well as more powerful engines than its predecessor.
2016 Peugeot 6008 Exterior Design
In terms of exterior design, the French company only released minor details about the 2016 Peugeot 6008 such as the size or the seating layout. The car will be just as long and tall as the C4 Grand Picasso and it will share the same wheelbase but it will be a bit wider than it in order to accommodate the wider wheels and tires.
The front end is likely going to share a lot of design cues with the 308 and the 408 while at the back we may see an all new design that will likely be used on their other crossovers as well.
Interior of the new Peugeot 6008
Inside the cabin, the 6008 will be quite impressive for its price and very spacious as well. As standard it will come with seven seats and there might be a six seats version available as well for certain markets.
The design of the dashboard and the interior in general will be similar to that of the 308 or even the 2008 but the materials will be tuned up a notch.
Peugeot 6008 2016 Engine
Engine wise, the 2016 Peugeot 6008 should come on the market with three different types of engines. A 1.6 petrol engine will be the base unit which will provide 165, 205 or 270 horsepower and up to 350 N*m of torque. A 2 liter diesel offering 150, 180 or 210 horsepower and up to 400 N*m of torque is also going to be available as an option.
Both of these will be available with either a 6 speed manual or a 6 speed automatic and all wheel drive as standard, a really nice bonus for such a large car. Many also rumored that the 1.6 liter diesel would also be installed on this model but so far it seems that Peugeot wants the car to become a bit more than just a family cruiser.
The most interesting engine option though would be the 1.6 liter hybrid which will use the most powerful 270 horsepower petrol engine coupled to an electric motor offering a combined output of 340 horsepower and well over 400 N*m of torque. Unfortunately it seems that this engine will likely be offered only on the Chinese market while in Europe a 1.6 liter diesel hybrid could be released at a later date.
2016 Peugeot 6008 Release Date and Price
This new car will fall in line with their new 2008 compact crossover and with a future sportier version as well. The Peugeot 6008 will actually get an all new platform with the EMP2 which also underpins the 308 as well as the 408. However, unlike the other two, the 6008 will be the only one offering a four wheel drive system which will make it a bit heavier and also more expensive.
The price has not been announced just yet but many people expect it to be around 30% more than the equivalent C4 Grand Picasso which would still be well worth the money. The release date on the other hand will be at the end of 2016 and the production model will follow shortly after.
Infiniti is currently going at a much slower pace than its competitors which means that a lot of their models are outdated which really shows in their sales numbers. In order to recover and build great cars once again they will release at least a couple of new cars by the end of 2016. One of these is going to be the 2017 Infiniti JX 35 which is actually a successor for the QX60. At this point in time it is unclear if the car will stick with its current name or it will return to the name it received back in 2012 but whatever the case may be, the model will be a major refresh of the current QX60.

Lamborghini has to be the most interesting hyper-car manufacturer out there because their cars are not meant for pure speed but rather for thrills and the way these cars make their drivers feel. Their current flagship is the Aventador which has been around for some time now and it is expected to get a slightly bigger update with the 2016 Lamborghini Aventador which will include updates to their base models as well as to their SV line of cars which is basically the hardcore version of the Aventador.

The Veyron has been first launched back in 2005 and it was built just to prove that a large scale manufacturer like VW could make the fastest car in the World. More than 10 years after its first launch, the 450 units of the car have all been sold and while they did not expect it to make any type of profit, the car sold much better than they first anticipated so VW now has to make a successor with the 2017 Bugatti Veyron which could be named Chiron. Even though it is going to be an all new model, the car’s chassis will be in fact shared with the Veyron but they will work on adding more lightweight materials in order to increase the structural rigidity of the car and also to make it lighter. Continue reading “2017 Bugatti Veyron Price Release Date”
While Fisker may not be as well known as Tesla, they were one of the first manufacturers to make an extended range hybrid car which unfortunately was not all that successful mostly to the extremely high price tag of the car and due to its founder which was not able to keep the company on the market. However, not too long ago, the biggest parts supplier in China managed to acquire the old Fisker company and renamed it Karma, after the only car they were making. While this may not be all that exciting, it seems that they will be making a 2016 Fisker Karma which will most likely be launched at a later date. Continue reading “2016 Fisker Karma Hybrid Sports Car”
