Volkswagen Touran revealed-Volvo in Geneva-General Motors claims


Volkswagen will put their brand new Touran model on display from the Geneva Motor Show next week but the German brand have already let loose on some of the information regarding specifications and the engine range head of its debut. The company today revealed some interesting information about the new model which reveals that it is set to be more economically friendly than the models currently enjoying its life on the road.

Thanks to the fitting of new diesel engines and petrol engines, we see figures improve for the Touran. 1.2, 1.4 and 1.8 litre petrol engines are up for the offering kicking out 110 horse power for the entry level 1.2, 150bhp for the 1.4 and finally 180 units of brake horse power for the 1.8 litre engine. Two diesel engines are offered but three different power outputs are up for the taking. The first in the line up is the 1.6 Tdi seeing 110 brake horse power. It is the 2.0 litre Tdi that has two power ranges to choose from though. These are either 150 or 190bhp. Weight reduction has been a big focus for the new Touran with the car shedding around 62 kilograms of weight. This means that overall fuel economy sees a climb of close to twenty percent. Images show the car carrying roof rails, swept back headlights,flared wheel arches and an extended wheelbase which means we can expect to see more interior space brought into play. The new Touran will make its debut in Geneva Switzerland in one weeks time.

 

Volvo to make a big impact this year

With the anticipation behind the Geneva Motor Show at an all time high, we look to one of this years biggest and brightest companies who have outlined their models that they will display at the event next month. Volvo have massively increased their reputation on the car market over the course of the past two years. Spreading from their Polestar range, to their XC60 moving all the way up to their forthcoming XC90 luxury SUV going on sale this year. They have certainly made a huge leap into the successful manufacturers banding. Adding to the excitement the company have announced their full line up for Geneva. Which includes the S60 receiving the all new Cross Country treatment,the V60 Cross Country, the XC90 and a very special R variant of the same model. With models like this, other brands could find it difficult to match the line up from the Sweden based brand so all eyes will be on them in nine days.

 

General Motors claims continue to rise

It was one of the biggest recall stories of the 2014 year and it was all circulated around General Motors. The company were facing a tough challenge due to a big recall of faulty ignition switches in some of their vehicles. Over the past number of months we have seen the company hit with claims from owners who claim they have experienced accidents and injuries due to the situation. This week however the number of claims heading for General Motors have continued to climb. Over the course of just one week, the company have been hit with thirty three more claims which means that the total amount has now climbed to 4,345. So far out of the new claims that were made this week, General Motors have accepted responsibility for eight of the claims which have been accepted by the company. This is bad start in 2015 for GM as the number of claims being made are continuing to climb.
