The Vauxhall Corsa VXR leaked-BMW Security-Mazda MX5 updates


We have known about the brand new Corsa VXR model from Vauxhall for the better part of a year now. At first the vehicle was began as just speculation but was then later confirmed to be on the way under the name of the VXR Corsa. Little by little over the past number of months we have heard more and more about the vehicle specification wise but now we have been given the privilege of checking out the design of the car early. An image of the car has been leaked online showing the brand new car in all of its glory displaying a Metallic Blue paint scheme with sharp LED daytime running lights also on display. The new model is to be more power orientated than the current Corsa thanks to a 1.6 litre,turbocharged engine. Around 207 brake horse power is also believed to be delivered upon by the new VXR. Some options for the car were also leaked along with the image that shows a limited slip differential system will also be an optional extra with the VXR. We think that Vauxhall are very close to making the grand reveal of the car. A surprise debut from Geneva in one months time could also be a strong possibility.

 

BMW to work upon security issues for their vehicles

It looks as if the BMW brand may be set to bring in new security advancements for a range of their vehicles including some from Mini and Rolls Royce vehicles too. With so much technology used in vehicles in this day and age, it can be seen as a flaw for some vehicles and this has been demonstrated by a new smartphone app which can bypass the vehicle security system and unlock the car. It is said that the ConnectedDrive systems fitted in BMW vehicles much similar to Rolls Royce and Mini cars can be bypassed thanks to the new app. Over two million cars have been hacked by the system in the past four years. With security systems being breached in this way, you can expect to see some new BMW security systems offered in the future.

 

Mazda to offer a more powerful MX-5?

The Mazda MX-5 is already a powerful vehicle and has made a name for itself ever since it first went on sale in 1989. However a recent interview with the global chief of PR at Mazda has indicated that in the future, the company may be set to offer new and more powerful engine options in the future. Kudo Hidetoshi stated that they were considering two new engine options for the MX-5 which would consist of either a bigger sized engine which could point towards some more SKYACTIV technology or even the same unit but just in a turbocharged form. No more news was revealed on whether a decision had been made on the engine as of yet or when we could expect to see it become available with the classic sports car.
