Alien Citroen C2 is not for women

Citroen C2 is mostly womens car. Generally speaking, the C2 is smaller sister of a large and popular model C3. Special design elements and edges give it stylish and at the same time athletic look.

Citroen C2 comes with 3 petrol engines (1.1i, 1.4i, 1.6i) and a diesel 1.4 HDi. The car can reach 100 km / h in 10.9 seconds, maximum speed is 195 km / h.

Alien Citroen C2 on the other hand, can hardly be called a women's car)

Tuning of small Citroen C2, which was named Alien (Alien), took British SQ Plus 6 months of intensive work. Airbrush painting made by Darren Horton cost the company 15000 pounds, or the dollar equivalent of about 30000. Not bad huh?

The developers priced its creation in the 108000 pounds (about 215 thousand dollars). Not a bad price, is not it? )

According to Tata Motors, 5 people will fit quite comfortable into the car. I rather think that there is no way to fit even four people. Even though the base Tata Nano doesn't include air conditioner, tilting seats and even radio, it still remains a very cheap car.

Sales of Tata Nano will begin in the second half of this year. Regarding the volume of sales, the Tata Motors plans to reach 500000 vehicles a year.

Sbarro Assystem City Car - an unusual car for the city

This unusual car for the city made its debut in Geneva, and frankly, shocked everyone a little. Original car design was developed by Franco Sbarro, a car appeared in Geneva before, but of course after that some modifications were made.

Sbarro Assystem City Car

Sbarro Assystem City Car

What I love most in this car, is the number of original solutions for different auto problems. For example, the problem with parking in a city - parking Sbarro Assystem is incredibly easy (first, very small size car, second it has only 3 axis, well, and finally its light weight).

The car has a very unique shape, plus it has only three wheels, and front wheel drive with electric motor (27 hp). That is why the maximum speed auto only 50 km / h. Not enough? Yes, of course it is not 200 km / h or even 100, however, for most people, this speed will be sufficient for everyday urban driving.

Sbarro Assystem City Car has two engines that can operate simultaneously, so the car can be called hybrid.

The Sbarro company wants to start production very soon. According to them, car could accommodate up to 5 people, as well as their luggage. Frankly, for me its a mystery, as how it can accommodate 5 people, and moreover, their luggage.

Ford Fusion inherited excellent technical characteristics from the Ford Fiesta, it is also easy and convenient to drive. This model has more head room and greater capacity of the luggage. Ford Fusion - an excellent choice for those buyers who want a cozy, compact but spacious inside the car.

Ford Fusion

Ford Fusion - is more thought through and useful version of good old Ford Fiesta. Ford Fusion has a larger body height, more direct vertical placement of seats and large trunk. The only thing that is worthy of criticism, to our disappointment, is lack of standard equipment on the basic model, while higher model full with absolutely unnecessary additional options.

Mini Cooper Second Generation

When the 2001 Mini Cooper was released in the new design, headlines almost always referenced the Cooper and Cooper S models. At the same time Mini One was perhaps less successful candidate for the first time buyers and for those unable to afford more expensive models.

The new Mini One second generation - are no longer "poor cousin" in the model line, but refined, sophisticated model of the new generation. At the same time, Cooper buyers for the first time got a real opportunity to choose between petrol and diesel engines - previous model Mini with a diesel engine has less than 90 horsepower, and was recognized as the worst in the range of Cooper.

Exterior is very similar to its predecessor, the first generation, but there is tangible change - for example, now back seat passengers will feel more comfortable - they have more space. And Mini continues to gain traction in the market.

Particularly impressive engine Citroen C3 1.4 HDi - a small, advanced and above all economical. We can not say that other engines do not impress - they are responsive and provide acceptable performance. Our only concern - the Citroen C3 interior quality - too many sharp angles and fragile plastic.
