The Italian brand Dallara is known to many, mainly, its race cars. At times the company even develops Formula 1 cars (now Italians are actively cooperating with the American team of Haas F1 Team), and it is also the exclusive supplier of racing equipment for the Formula E and IndyKar series. But few people know that since recently Italians are engaged in small-scale production of track supercars, which have truly racing habits. The serial first-born of the brand - roadster Stradale, was tested by our foreign colleagues, and we based on their opinions about this car digest. This car is very considerable money - 235 000 euros, but almost all of them went for blowing in the wind tunnel and light alloy materials: the equipped weight of the roadster is only 855 kilograms, and under its h...

The first tests Aston Martin DB11 Volante: excellent ongoings, but boring multimedia

Car Reviews
Last year, Aston Martin introduced the cabriolet DB11, which joined the modification of the coupe. We tested the car and made some conclusions about it. First of all we were surprised that the car still has a small trunk, and its volume is more than that of the DB9 Volante convertible. The novelty looks elegant, and the roof resembles an elegant umbrella, slightly soaked under the traditional British rain. Under the hood, the DB11 Volante has a turbocharged eight сндштвук Mercedes-Benz with a payback of 503 horsepower. It sounds exactly the same as on Stuttgart cars - Aston Martin did not even work on its exhaust. Manages the car thrillingly: the chassis has an enviable information and captures. Of course, not like the V12 Vantage S, but the DB11 Volante in this respect is nea

The first tests Citroen C4 Cactus: soft and authentic

Car Reviews
In late October last year, Citroen introduced the updated hatchback C4 Cactus. Compared with the pre-styling version, the model has not only got a new look: now the hatchback is equipped with a suspension with hydraulic stops and new PureTech motors. The main feature of the C4 Cactus is certainly a suspension, and to achieve complete isolation of the cabin from driving on the potholes of Citroen failed, and the back of the car suffers more from this. Nevertheless, on the move the C4 Cactus is softer and smoother than cars of a similar class. It is more comfortable and pre-styling version, and we can even say that Citroen with this car returned to the habits of the old school hatchback CX. About the comparison with the Volkswagen Golf and even the Peugeot 308 there is no question...

The South Korean brand Kia will bring to the market a new and very interesting car - fastbike Stinger GT. This model will cost a little less than popular German competitors, while the dynamics of the Stinger GT will be at a high level. Our colleagues spent some time with the car on the city roads and on the legendary Nürburgring, and we decided to make a short digest in which they described the most important theses of our foreign colleagues about this fastback.

The first tests Volvo XC40: a comfortable cabin, but noisy diesel

Car Reviews, News
Volvo recently introduced its new compact crossover XC40, which will compete with such models as Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Jaguar E-Pace. Unlike competitors, the XC40 does not look like the "younger brother" of older models. Rather, we can say that the XC40 is the cousin of the XC60 and XC90, and it looks like a "tough, small robot". The interior quality of the XC40 interior is worse than that of older models, but not much: simplified elements that could be simplified, and overall, it looks no worse than competitors. Landing in the driver's seat is good, multimedia system Sensus works clearly, in the back row there is a lot of free space. Suspension even on wheels 245/45 R20 performs well pits well, but the car behaves better with speed: pit feels less, transverse swinging comes to ...

Car Reviews, New Cars, News
The Japanese company Subaru intends to launch next year its new large crossover Ascent. The prototype of the model was quickly tested by journalists. Observers of the edition of Motortrend got an exclusive opportunity to ride on the prototype of Subaru Ascent before the presentation, when it was still covered with camouflage film. Nevertheless, the car had full functionality. The new oppositely turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with capacity of 2.4 liters and a return of 260-hp under the hood of the Subaru Ascent reacts very strongly to the gas pedal. The dynamics are excellent: up to 96 kilometers per hour the prototype can accelerate in just 7.3 seconds, but outside the city the engine is not so impressive. Thanks to its low center of gravity, the Subaru Ascent does an excellen...

Porsche last summer introduced a real race car for public roads - coupe 911 GT2 RS. The novelty visited the first tests of our foreign colleagues, who at a glance tried to understand its advantages and disadvantages. We bring to your attention a brief "squeeze" of opinions collected by us from the theses of journalists. The reviewers of the Caranddriver first of all wondered why in the cabin Porsche 911 GT2 RS with the Weissach package cup holders, if instead of the rear row of seats there is a spacer, and some elements of the car suspension are made of carbon, exactly, like the steering lobes.

2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Review

Car Reviews, News
Jeep next year will launch the extreme version of the Grand Cherokee crossover, which was named Trackhawk. The car is equipped with the most powerful compressor 8-cylinder engine from the Dodge Challenger Hellcat, and our colleagues were able to test this interesting car. Journalists from the British edition of Autocar did not notice the significant visual differences between the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and the less powerful versions of the crossover. Only the nameplate and the huge Brembo brake discs that you will not see on other brand models will throw in your eyes. On the crossover, journalists drove along the Spring Mountain route, which is located in Nevada. They had a little time at their disposal, but even with such a quick acquaintance it's clear that the car turned out...
