European Car of the Year 2019: Jaguar I-Pace wins COTY by a nose …

The Jaguar I-Pace electric SUV has been crowned European Car of the Year 2019, but only just; the Alpine A110 fractionally lost out in a tiebreaker
Jaguar’s I-Pace battery-electric SUV has won the 2019 Car of the Year award in an incredibly tight contest between it and Renault‘s Alpine sports coupé. Formal voting ended with each car sharing 250 votes apiece; the first time there’s been a draw in the Coty award since it was started in 1964.

In keeping with the rules, the votes were then recounted to see which of the 60 jurors voted each car ahead of the other; with that recount done, the Jaguar came out first with 18 first places ahead of the Alpine’s 16.
This is the first Jaguar to win the award in the Coty’s 55 years and a visibly delighted Ian Callum, Jaguar’s director of design, received the award from jury president Frank Janssen.
“Wow, was that close or what,” said Callum, “thank you very much. I don’t understand why people make such a fuss over battery electric cars winning this award though; this is the future. It’s a whole new Jaguar on a whole new platform and it’s the most exciting car I’ve ever worked on.”

The voting on the seven-strong shortlist was close, with five models taking the lead in the voting announcement which is done in the style of the Eurovision Song Contest, with each country announced at a time in alphabetical order. As well as the Jaguar and the Alpine, Ford‘s Focus, Citroën‘s C5 Aircross and Kia’s Ceed hatchback each held the lead during the count and when the vote went to the last country, the UK, with six judges including yours truly, the leading vehicle was Kia’s Ceed with 234 votes.

European Car of the Year 2019 award will provide a much-needed boost for JLR, which has recently laid off workers and has suffered poor sales of its conventional-engined models. It will also reinforce a new direction for the company to concentrate on battery electric vehicle in future.
The zero-emission SUV from Jaguar and the lightweight sports car produced by Alpine of France beat the Ford Focus into third position.
Then came the Citroen C5 Aircross, the Peugeot 508, the Kia Ceed and the Mercedes A-Class.
The European Car of the Year award is a long-running institution established in 1964 as the definitive award for car buyers on the Continent. Each year, a jury of 60 expert voters from 23 European countries convene to choose a single winner from all the mainstream cars recently released in Europe, regardless of their country of origin.
Every jury member has 25 points to distribute among the shortlist, and must award points to at least five cars. He or she may not award more than ten points to any one car, nor may he or she award ‘joint first’ to two models. These votes made public, as are the jury member’s reasoning behind them.

The design of the Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupé: Pure emotion

Reflecting the first design sketches.
“As a four-door coupé, the new CLA intrigues with its puristic, seductive design and sets new standards in the design DNA of ‘sensual purity’. It impresses with its perfect proportions reflecting the first design sketches: a long, stretched bonnet, a compact greenhouse, a wide track with exposed wheel arches and our typical GT rear end with a strong distinctive ‘Coke-bottle shoulder’,” says Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer of Daimler AG. “In short: The CLA Coupé has the potential to become a modern design icon.”

Sporty and elegant character.
The combination of the long, stretched entry line above the windows and frameless doors gives the CLA Coupé its unmistakeable sporty and elegant character. Forming the front end is the striking front section which is raked forwards like a shark nose with a long, stretched bonnet featuring powerdomes. Flat headlamps together with the low slung bonnet and the diamond radiator grille with central star create the vehicle’s sporty face. The two-piece, narrow tail lamps and the number plate housed in the bumper make the rear of the CLA look especially wide.

Sculptured rear.
With the greenhouse moved back, the sporty GT rear achieves a balance between elegance and sportiness. Featuring pared-down lines, the precisely modelled side profile provides an interesting interplay of light and shade. Dispensing with the upper shaped edge of the side wall permits extremely muscular and athletic shoulder shaping, stretching from the front wheel arch through to the sculptured rear. Flush with the outer edge of the body, the wheels with their flared wheel arches and wide track epitomise dynamism and give the vehicle a sporty presence.

Unique interior architecture.
In the interior, all elements are arranged according to the overarching design themes of ‘high tech’ and ‘youthful avant-garde’ – be that the steering wheel, the door handle operating module, the centre console or the seats. As in the A‑Class, the unique interior architecture is shaped in particular by the avant-garde design of the dashboard: the designers completely dispensed with a cowl above the cockpit. As a result, the wing-shaped main body of the dashboard extends from one front door to the other with no visual discontinuity. The widescreen display is completely free-standing. The lower section is visually separated from the main body of the instrument cluster by a ‘trench’, and it appears to float in front of the instrument cluster. The ambient lighting enhances this effect. The air vents in a sporty turbine-look are another highlight.

Car Design.
Design creates something out of the ordinary and makes a major contribution to shaping the brand image in the public eye. Today, the designers at Mercedes-Benz reconcile tradition and modernity in designing the cars of the future. Their creative efforts focus on sensuous clarity as the definition of modern luxury. This precisely expresses a fundamental aspect of the brand – the bipolarity of intelligence and emotion.

The new MercedesBenz CLA Coupé is not only the most emotional vehicle in its class, it is also highly intelligen

From MBUX Interior Assist, which recognises operational demands from gestures and equips the interior with intelligence, through augmented reality for navigation and understanding indirect voice commands to the ENERGIZING COACH that provides individual fitness recommendations, the new CLA offers an array of clever solutions. There are also ingenious details when it comes to the aerodynamics and new functions for the Intelligent Drive driving assistance package. The design underlines the coupé character with its stretched form and design elements such as the bonnet with powerdomes or the rear licence plate which has been moved down. As such it does justice to its predecessor’s status as a design icon.

With MBUX, Mercedes-Benz has been revolutionising how to operate a car and communicate with it since the launch of the A-Class. “Now we go to the next level with an intelligent interior assistance system for the compact class. By recognising gestures it facilitates natural operation,” says Ola Källenius, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG, responsible for Group Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars Development. “This is not the only new feature by which the CLA offers a great deal of automotive intelligence.”
“With the first CLA we created a totally new segment with a four-door coupé and celebrated a huge success by selling some 750,000 CLA and Shooting Brake,” adds Britta Seeger, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG, responsible for Mercedes-Benz Cars Marketing & Sales. “The new edition of the CLA has been developed further in an intelligent way and is even more emotional and sportier than its predecessor. Coupled with new operating systems, it sets new benchmarks for the entire class.”

The new generation of compacts has made a key contribution to the rejuvenation and image change of the Mercedes-Benz brand. The CLA is important for winning and retaining new customers in particular. The CLA Coupé was launched in the USA in 2013, making it the first compact Mercedes‑Benz on the American market. At peak times, more than two thirds of CLA buyers in the USA came from competitors. On average, CLA customers in the USA are around ten years younger than the typical Mercedes‑Benz customer. In Europe, too, CLA customers are among the youngest in the Mercedes portfolio. In 2017, one in two customers in Europe previously drove a competitor’s vehicle. Over 75 percent of European customers who previously drove a CLA as a coupé or Shooting Brake chose a Mercedes‑Benz again for their next vehicle. In total, some 750,000 units of the first-generation CLA Coupé and CLA Shooting Brake contributed considerably to the compact car’s success.
In its first year, the new CLA will also be available as an Edition 1.
In terms of both the exterior and the interior, this limited edition special model has numerous visual accents which underline its exclusivity. The new CLA will be manufactured at the Kecskemét plant (Hungary) and comes onto the market in May 2019.

ISUZU D-MAX: Story of a Reliable pick-up with truck DNA

Welcome to a whole new era in pick-up trucks. The ISUZU D-MAX – toughness, redefined. Encompassing aggressive styling and levels of safety – plus ISUZU’s legendary durability and fuel efficiency – the ISUZU D-MAX strives ahead of its competition. Whether it’s hauling big loads, powering through the work week, cruising through the weekend or going where the others won’t, this is one pickup you can depend on. Put it to the test. You won’t be disappointed.

Features and specifications shown here may vary in appearance and/or availability according to region. Please inquire at your local ISUZU distributor or dealer for more complete details on available models and their specifications.

* * *
ISUZU continues to build a reputation for diesel engines since developing Japan‘s first air-cooled automotive diesel engine in 1936.
Constant technological improvements, innovations and indepth experience across the production of over 25 million diesel engines means ISUZU is an established global leader in developing capable and efficient engines for all kinds of application.
D-MAX Powertrain Genuine Performance

Steel timing chain (not belt) assures reliability

* * * In 2002, the D-Max was prepared for a world premiere in Thailand. This location was chosen because GM-Isuzu had recently decided to close their small truck assembly plant in Japan and move their joint operation to Thailand. The D-Max is available in various models. The Spark (single cab) (EX) is available only as a 4×2, with three configurations between cab chassis, long bed with power steering and without. SpaceCabs (extended cab), and Cab4s (double cab) can be divided into two major configurations: standard height 4x2s (SL, SX, SLX), and 4x4s (S and LS) with the “Rodeo” name instead of SpaceCab. Crew cabs are all sold with the same Cab4 name (Cab4 models became available late in last quarter). All are built and sold alongside the almost identical Chevrolet Colorado which had debuted in late first quarter of 2004.


Rocker arms with large roller bearings lower friction

* * * Engine choices for that year till end of third quarter of 2004 derived from its direct predecessor: 4JH1-T 3.0 and 4JA1-T 2.5.
Hi-Lander 3.0 (lifted 4×2), trim style became available in late 2003, and ground clearance equals that of the 4×4 models. There are only two cab styles to choose between. This makes Isuzu the third manufacturer in Thailand to begin selling lifted 4×2 pickups (after Toyota and Ford).

Melt-in liner technology strengthens the cylinder for longer life

* * * The ISUZU D-MAX comes from a lineage of the world’s toughest, most reliable trucks. Almost a century of truck-manufacturing DNA has gone into the ISUZU D-MAX to deliver a pick-up that truly redefines the category.
Interior Convenience

ISUZU’s ‘universal design’ concept drives development and inclusion of features that are intuitive to use, easy to reach and greatly improves occupant and driver convenience. The distinctive wider door arches on the ISUZU D-MAX make for easy access to the cabin offering generous head and leg room as well as comfortably designed seats for every occupant. An abundance of thoughtfully placed storage and cup holders complete the interior giving it a striking sense of design and function. In addition, state of the art features like touch sensor passive entry, engine stop/start button, audio system with 8-speaker surround sound and Bluetooth® connectivity all feature controls that are effortless to reach and simple to use. The D-MAX offers all of the luxury appointments expected in modern vehicles.

Instrument panel with multi-information display

* * * Hi-Lander 3.0 (lifted 4×2), trim style became available in late 2003, and ground clearance equals that of the 4×4 models. There are only two cab styles to choose between. This makes Isuzu the third manufacturer in Thailand to begin selling lifted 4×2 pickups (after Toyota and Ford).
In October 2004, Isuzu introduced the DDi iTEQ common-rail diesel engine family for the D-Max. The first engine to appear was the 3.0 4JJ1-TC 146 PS (107 kW; 144 hp), however since then, a design change in the front end of the car has forced engine alterations. Additionally, new MUA-5H five-speed manual transmission also introduced.


Auto air conditioner

* * * During the first quarter of 2005, a 2.5 4JK1-TC 116 PS (85 kW; 114 hp), the second DDi iTEQ engine, was introduced and offered as economical choice to replace its aging predecessor (4JA1-T was concurrently available for that year only). A mid-cycle refresh brought many models fitted with a new front bumper that incorporated an “instant spoiler” underneath, 4×4 models and Hi-Lander’s suspensions were raised up 25 millimeters extra.


Premium leather seat

* * * In 2007, Isuzu celebrated its 50th anniversary in Thailand with “Gold Series” models sold for the 2008 model year. The Hi-Lander Cab4 model with the VGS turbodiesel engine became available for the first time. The 4×4 models get a new front bumper design with chrome accents. Also added was the choice of a 2.5l 4-cylinder engine in LS 4×4 and Hi-Lander models.
During the middle of the first quarter of 2008, the Rodeo LS and Hi-Lander SpaceCab were also fitted with the 3.0-liter VVGS Turbodiesel engine to fill all the remaining gaps in lineup.


Power height adjustment

* * * In the early fourth quarter of 2008, Isuzu introduced D-Max Platinum models for 2009 to replace the outgoing Gold Series. LS 4×4 and Hi-Lander received new fascia; chrome on LS 4×4 and semi platinum-silver on Hi-Lander. Minor-modified headlamps and new fog lamps for platinum look. 4×2 SLX and SX derived fascias from 4×4/Hi-Lander (before Platinum’s fascia). Chrome fascia for 3.0 SLX models and color-keyed fascia for SX. Top heads of 3 DDi iTEQ engines changed from gold to platinum. Some models dropped 4JJ1-TC 3.0l engine. All retooled to be acceptable with Biodiesel B5. All SpaceCab models featured new middle pillars called Safety Pillar Cab; pillars and door beams larger and thicker. Not all Cab4 models received retooled rear suspension called Super Flex Plus suspension. Spark EX also received new gauge and indicator. D-Max Platinum models commenced on sale from 15 October.


Glove compartment and article storage

* * * In the middle of September 2009, Isuzu introduced the D-Max Super Platinum models. SL model was dropped. Highline SLX 4×2 models received same fascia and front bumper as Hi-Lander / LS 4×4 style, new 16″ wheels and newer styles of alloy wheels for SLX / Hi-Lander / LS 4×4, newer rear bumper, and new “Super Platinum” marque at tailgate. LS 4×4 models received skid plate attached under bumper in brighter silver, newer side step. Highline Hi Lander / LS 4×4 models have newer style blind spot rear view mirrors, and new short-plot antenna.


Passive entry & start system

* * * Features and specifications may vary in appearance and/or availability according to region.
Every year since late 2005 until now, there are several special D-Max & MU-7 models. Available exclusively only for a period during Thailand’s 2 largest auto shows and also other special Isuzu occasions. They were all unique yet never the same in each presentation. D-Max Smart models are such one remarkably special model set. Available in several occasions during 2008. This edition modifies SpaceCab 4×2 2.5 by special white pearl exterior color and optional equipment such as immobilizer key.


Electronic Stability Control(ESC)

* * * Features and specifications may vary in appearance and/or availability according to region.
At ISUZU, safety is always the first thought. Careful attention to detail allows ISUZU to deliver higher levels of active safety features. Intelligent cabin design allows excellent road visibility while Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA) and projector headlamps actively work to keep drivers alert to potential hazards and in control.
When combined with its tough, high tensile steel cabin, energy absorbing front end, side impact anti-intrusion bars and dual front airbags with pre-tensioning seatbelts you can be assured that the D-MAX is made stronger and safer for you and your passengers.

Dual front, side and curtain airbags

* * * Ever since Platinum models introduced, D-Max Smart models expanded up to 3 choices: SpaceCab 4×2, Cab4 4×2 and Hi-Lander 2-Door. These 3 models also updated as new Super Platinum models.
In 2009, a sport version of the D-Max named the X-Series was introduced, aimed especially for a target group of young people normally not interested in using pickup trucks. It was marketed as a “Lifestyle Pickup” and equipped with additional skirts and prominent red Isuzu letters at front grille. The wheels remain unchanged from normal model but came with gunmetal paint finish. Available in two-door SpaceCab and four-door Cab4 body variants with manual transmission.


Cabin constructed from high tensile steel

* * * Isuzu D-Max Model Line Up
The Isuzu D-Max is a pickup truck manufactured since 2002 by Isuzu Motors. It shares the same platform with several General Motors (GM) mid-size trucks in the United States such as the Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon and Isuzu i-Series. The Chevrolet Colorado name is also applied to a rebadged version of the D-Max in the Middle East and Thailand, although not identical to the American version. The original D-Max is sold alongside the Chevrolet Colorado in the Thai market where they are both built. In Australasia between 2003 and 2008, the D-Max was marketed as the Holden Rodeo, but has since been relaunched as the Holden Colorado. The Isuzu D-Max itself was also introduced in Australia during 2008, selling alongside the Holden-badged offering.

CREW CAB 4WD LS

* * * In 2010, D-Max and MU-7 Super Titanium models were introduced. It featured frontal camera, usually found in luxury cars, first time ever in Thai pickup, and are last model in this generation

CREW CAB 2WD Standard

* * * In April 2011, MU-7 “Choiz” are revealed at Bangkok Motor Show, with new alloy wheels and small changing of interior.
In December 2011, the MU-7 “Choiz” was Facelifted, with new alloy wheels. Available in 4WD,2WD 3000 VGS Turbo (4JJ1-TCX 3000CC. Diesel Turbo Engine) And 2WD 3000 Ddi (4JJ1-TC 3000CC. Diesel Turbo Engine)

REGULAR CAB 4WD Standard

* * * China and Iran
In China Great Wall and Foday produced the models. In Iran it was produced by Bahman and SAIPA.
In Australia and New Zealand, the D-Max was sold as the third generation Holden Rodeo (RA) between 2003 and 2008, before being facelifted into the form of the Holden Colorado. This was a result of the GM-Isuzu split resulting in GM losing the right to use the “Rodeo” name. As with Rodeo, Colorado is available as either two- or four-wheel drive and in a range of body styles including single cab, space cab and crew cab. Power is provided by a range of petrol and diesel engines. Of the petrol engines, Holden offers a 2.4-litre four-cylinder as well as the Australian-made 3.6-litre Alloytec engine. The diesel powerplant is a four-cylinder Isuzu 4JJ1 unit displacing 3.0 litres. The main difference between the Colorado and the Rodeo is the revised body work from the A-pillar forward.


REGULAR CAB 2WD Standard

* * * Engine choices for that year till end of third quarter of 2004 derived from its direct predecessor: 4JH1-T 3.0 and 4JA1-T 2.5.
In the third quarter of 2006, the D-Max received a minor redesign and the introduction of a third DDi iTEQ engine, 3.0 4JJ1-TCX. This engine is a modified 4JJ1-TC, incorporating a new Variable Valve Geometry Turbo (VGS). The extra power warranted an introduction of new transmissions as well: the MUX 5-Speed manual and MaxMatic-III automatic transmission. All models equipped with Xenon headlamps were changed to projector headlamps instead. Also introduced was the new “Hexapod-plot” interior. Other DDi iTEQ engines were also tweaked a bit for extra power and efficiency.
During October 2008, the Isuzu D-Max was launched in Australia, alongside the almost identical Holden Colorado. Officially available in Australia as its own brand under the marketing name Isuzu UTE Australia, separate to the medium-heavy truck manufacturer, Isuzu Australia.
In June 2012, the RC series Holden Colorado was replaced by the RG model based on the second-generation D-Max body.
New Zealand
In June 2010, Isuzu Utes New Zealand became the official distributor for Isuzu D-Max in New Zealand.
Europe
In the United Kingdom, Isuzu UK is the official distributor for the Isuzu D-Max.
South America
Julie Beamer, director of GM Chile, announced on 5 March 2008 to workers of the only remaining automobile factory in Chile, that said factory would be closed down on 31 July that year. The only vehicle that was in production at the time was the Chevrolet D-Max. The announcement came shortly after then-president of Venezuela Hugo Chávez reduced the import quota for cars in Venezuela, the main export market for the Chilean-made Chevrolet D-Max, but GM Chile said in its official statement that the reason behind the end of production in Arica was the lack of favorable conditions for vehicle manufacturing in Chile and fierce competition from many other car manufacturers and countries on Chile’s car market.
Chevrolet Colorado
The Thai-market Colorado is smaller than the North American model of the same name and almost unrelated. In late January 2006, Chevrolet introduced a G-80 differential lock system as optional for most Colorado trim levels. This feature is not available on the D-Max. The Thai-market Colorado received a minor redesign in late 2007.
Late first quarter of 2008, Chevrolet also introduced Colorado 4×2 2.5 with diesel dual fuel system via CNG tank. Switchable between diesel (65) and compressed natural gas (35) as the divided aspect (65:35); moreover also can use diesel purely as well. Biodiesel B5 is also acceptable. Location of tank is on the bed behind cab. Available for two cab styles.
In March 2011, Chevrolet revealed the prototype version of all-new Colorado at Bangkok Motor Show, not related anymore to D-Max, shown as Extended cab with rear access system, and some of high-tech equipment, In June 2011, Chevrolet revealed crew cab in adventure concept at Buenos Aires, Argentina (this car also shown at Frankfurt Auto Show in September 2011), and in July 2011, a Holden version of crew-cab version concept car got its premiere at Australian International Motor Show, but the interior of this car looked like production models any more than 2 concepts before.
On 9 September 2011, General Motors (Thailand) opened the diesel engine manufacture plant, to make the “Duramax” engine, as the VM Motori rebadge engine (same as old 2-liter diesel Captiva) with 2.5- or 2.8-liter, manual and automatic, 2WD or 4WD. New 2012 Isuzu D-MAX Pickup Truck is the Chevy Colorado’s Asian Twin.
Isuzu has long abandoned the U.S. passenger and truck market but it continues to have strong ties with General Motors, which was once its primary stockholder. In 2011, the Japanese automaker revealed its all-new D-MAX pickup truck, which was designed in cooperation with GM and is a sister model to the 2012 Chevrolet Colorado. Albeit on separate occasions, both pickup truck models were presented in Thailand. On the outside, the new 2012 D-MAX features different front and rear end styling treatments as well as bespoke trim parts, while inside, the changes over the Colorado are limited to the color options and the instrument panel. The body-on-frame Isuzu D-MAX launches in Thailand with three turbodiesel engines, including a pair of 2.5-liter units producing 115HP and 136HP, and a larger 3.0-liter powerplant with 177-horses.
As with previous models, the 2012 Isuzu Dmax shares its ladder chassis platform, body construction, mechanical componentry and interior design (dash, centre stack, steering wheel and doors) with the 2013 North American Chevrolet Colorado. From A-pillar on back Isuzu Dmax appears to be a clone of Chevy Colorado but gets its own visual identity due to an aggressive angular front fascia with upswept headlights and a more conventional grille design.
Dmax uses Isuzu’s own engine and drivetrain. Isuzu’s iTEQ engine has been retained but has been tuned up. 2500 cc engine now comes in two configurations; normal turbo 87 kW power with 280Nm of torque and 101 kW of power and VGS Turbo with 320Nm of torque. If you want more power you can opt for four-cylinder 3000 cc 4JJ1-TC iTEQ common-rail diesel engine with VGS Turbo which now has the power of 132 kW with 380Nm of torque. Engines performance have been upgraded with Variable geometry turbocharger (VGS Turbo) and Isuzu Dmax’s engines pass Euro V emission standard. 2012 Dmax still comes with 5-speed manual but has unvelied new 5-speed “Rev-Tronic” automatic transmission with sport mode (2011 model had 4 speed automatic transmission). 4WD models have been renamed from “Rodeo” to “V-Cross”, and transfer case has been renamed from “Touch-on-the-fly” button to new “Terrain command” system that uses spin system to allow for seamless changing of drive modes from 4-Wheel to 2-Wheel Drive mode. Isuzu front suspension made up of independent double wishbone with coil-spring setup and a rear suspension made up of over slung leaf-springs installed above a special long span rear axle make for a comfortable driving experience. Ecuador is the only country where this generation D-Max is available with a gasoline engine, an Opel-based C24 with 16 valves and double overhead camshafts supplied from Brazil where the lower-grade versions of the Chevrolet S10 still rely on a flex-fuel 8-valve SOHC version which also served as a basis for the Vortec 2400 industrial engine.
Isuzu new rugged ladder-frame chassis platform dubbed “i-GRIP” (Isuzu Gravity Responsive Intelligent Platform) underpinning the new D-Max makes 42% stronger than its predecessors leading to improved ride and handling. The frame includes improved cross bracing at the rear, improving stability under loads and while towing, while also “ensuring long-term durability when used regularly in harsh environments”. Longer wheelbase of 3095mm – 45mm longer than before – is now standard on all three body styles. This is good news for double cab users as rear riders not only get more leg space but also more comfortable seats.
D-Max would continue to be offered in all three body styles: Single Cab, Space Cab and Crew Cab. Customers will also continue to have a choice of rear-wheel drive 4×2 and four-wheel drive 4×4 models. Space Extra Cab has laterally opening door to give easier access to the rear seat. Isuzu D-Max has an advanced safety package, with features including high-tensile steel, electronic stability control ESC, traction control (TCS), ABS, emergency brake assist, a number of airbags and Electronic brakeforce distribution EBD. EBD detects the payload weight and modulates the rear braking force to compensate. In ESC fitted models ABS now goes to 4-channel 4-sensor type instead of the current 3-channel 4-sensor.

The D-Max gets more storage spaces. Isuzu Entertainment System includes eight speaker comprising two large 6 x 9-inch front speakers and a roof-mounted Exciter speaker sound system replete with surround sound in the newly designed dash along with ‘iGENIE’ navigation system which include support for real-time traffic reports, and is equipped with standard Bluetooth and portable music player connectivity. It also comes with comfortable Flex-Ride suspension system; 2-DIN audio-video head unit with navigation-ready system; projector-type headlamps that provide 14% more illumination than their ordinary counterparts; side-impact steel beams; and rear camera and sensor.

Interior design in the D-Max is the same as the all-new Chevrolet Colorado, but uses its own upholstery, Standard 2WD models use beige cloth interior, Hi-Lander Z models come with black cloth interior, and Z-Prestige models come with Brown interior; 2.5-liter models come with cloth, 3-liter models come with leather, the meter are real changing, with added of multi-information display with support of Thai language menu operation, 2DIN CD player with Bluetooth and USB connection support or Kenwood DVD system (Changed Isuzu DVD-iGENIE Navi System in MY2013), Audio switch control, Driver power seat, Rear foldable seat (in Crew Cab models), also with over 10 position of intelligent storage space e.g. under steering wheel, over center console, 10-position cup holders
In December 2013 model year 2014 D-Max minorchange was launched with the sub name call “D-Max Super Daylight“, changes in the exterior include Daytime running lamp replacing the fog lamp and updated the rear lamp in L, Z and Z-Prestige model.
Available in 4 models line-up, 3 body type, 3 drivetrain; 2WD, High-ride 2WD (Hi-Lander) or 4WD (V-Cross) in Single cab (Spark), Space Cab and Crew Cab (Cab4)

Models line-up are : B, S, L, Z and Z Prestige. In 2015, The facelifted model was introduced in Thailand, factory codename RT85. The front fascia was changed with larger grille and new engine “RZ4E-TC” 1.9L debuted and permanently replaced the 2.5L from the old model. Interior remained unchanged from the old model except for some changes including newer 8″ inch infotainment system, newer TFT gauges, and cruise control.
In 2017, The D-Max was updated again in Thailand, with newer front grile and bumper with Bi-LED Projector Headlamp with LED Multifunction DRL, newer alloy wheels and some several changes in the interior for the 2018 Model Year.
In December 2012 D-Max in Thailand was launched Special model “X-Series” that look Sport Pickup available in three model SpaceCab Z model was called Speed model, Hi-Lander 2-door in Z model and Hi-Lander 4-door in Z-Prestige model.

The Dodge Durango occupies a sweet spot in the SUV world. On one hand, it has the capabilities of a large people-hauling crossover with three rows of seats. On the other, it’s a durable unibody SUV with the towing abilities you’d expect of a full-size truck. And for 2019, it has been improved in several ways to enhance its self-proclaimed position as “the Dodge Charger of the three-row SUV segment.”
What’s New for 2019?
There are five Durango models for 2019: the SXT, GT, Citadel, R/T and SRT.
The entry-level Durango SXT, powered by a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, is rated to tow a 6,200-pound trailer. For 2019, the SXT has a customizable 7-inch full digital infotainment display, pushbutton start, Uconnect 4 and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto. While a leather-wrapped steering wheel is standard on the SXT, leather-covered seats are newly optional.
Another V6 Durango, the GT, receives a new look for 2019, courtesy of the front fascia and LED foglamps from the sporty R/T and SRT models. More significant: The functional SRT hood, which features a center duct flanked by two heat extractors, is now optional on the 2019 Dodge Durango GT. Other options on the 7-seat GT include paddle shifters, a power liftgate, Capri leather-trimmed seats (with suede inserts) and heat for the leather-wrapped sport steering wheel and first two rows of seats.
The Durango Citadel can be ordered with the 360-horsepower, 5.7-liter Hemi V8, which saves fuel via automatic cylinder deactivation on the highway but still endows this Dodge SUV with an impressive tow rating of 7,400 pounds. For 2019, the Citadel has standard second-row captain’s chairs, plus an optional 825-watt Harman Kardon sound system with 19 speakers (for those times when 18 isn’t enough). The Citadel, with 20-inch polished aluminum wheels, also has HID headlamps and an 8.4-inch touch screen.
The 2019 Dodge Durango R/T continues to be powered by Chrysler’s 5.7-liter Hemi V8, which is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. This R/T, which shares its aggressive front fascia with the SRT (and 2019 Citadel), has performance-tuned suspension and brakes, as well as HID headlights and 7-passenger seating with second-row captain’s chairs. The 2019 Durango R/T also is available with Sepia leather seats and the powerful Harman Kardon audio system.

Firmly ensconced at the top of the Durango performance heap is the 2019 SRT, which continues to be powered by a 392 cubic-inch V8 with 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. For an idea of just how potent this Durango is, consider this: the SRT hits 60 mph in 4.4 seconds and blasts through the quarter mile in 12.9 seconds.

While red seatbelts are now available as fun eye candy inside the 2019 Dodge Durango SRT, far more significant are the available upgraded Brembo brakes with two-piece rotors. While the stock Brembos are up the task of slowing this 5,500-pound all-wheel-drive SUV with confidence, the optional brakes are better able to handle the high loads this SUV can produce, given its performance-tuned suspension with stiffer springs, larger sway bars and active damping.
Inside, the Durango SRT is fitted with Performance Laguna leather, carbon-fiber trim on the instrument panel and attractive suede on the headliner and A-pillars. Additionally, it has a flat-bottom steering wheel, paddle shifters and seats embossed with SRT logos.
The 2019 Dodge Durango goes on sale this fall, with a starting price of $29,995, excluding destination. While the other prices aren’t known at this time, we do know this: All 2019 Durangos, rear-drive or all-wheel-drive, will be fitted with an integrated trailer brake when ordered with the optional Trailer Tow Package. Also, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-path detection is now optional. Lastly, when the 2019 Dodge Durango leaves the Detroit, Michigan, assembly plant, it will be available in 11 colors, three of which are new: F8 Green, Destroyer Gray and Reactor Blue.

2019 DODGE DURANGO
The SUV market is more crowded than a highway on a long holiday weekend. So, how do you stand out in a sea of sameness? First, veer off the beaten path and leave the pack behind. Second, while the others concentrate on simply being utilitarian vehicles, hone in on being a sport utility vehicle. Don’t focus on the number of cup holders, but focus on the number of horses under the hood. In other words, build a Dodge. Because compared to other SUVs, only Durango goes all in with its available HEMI ® V8 engine, All-Wheel Drive (AWD), Sport suspension, and an incredible amount of horsepower and torque capable of pulling an equally incredible towing rating. For good measure, Durango offers plenty of technology to keep you entertained and connected.
For more than 100 years, the Dodge Brand has stood for standing out. We’ve led by being different. By offering the unexpected, by
having a different voice altogether and daring to amplify it. We’ve stood apart in a sea of look-alike vehicles by championing the
un-boring; by having the courage to be different enough to build modern-day marvels that are engineered with more passion,
precision and performance than ever before. Each vehicle in the 2019 Dodge lineup pays homage to its iconic bloodline with award-
winning features and detailed craftsmanship. The snarling engines and sleek exteriors of each vehicle beg to be taken out on the
open road. It’s time to put the pedal to the metal. THIS IS WHAT IT MEANS TO BE DOMESTIC AND NOT DOMESTICATED.
THE ONLY SUV THAT EARNED ITS STRIPES ON THE STRIP
DURANGO SRT® /// Take everything great about Durango and merge it with everything extreme about SRT
and you get one badass people-mover. Durango SRT harnesses the power of a 392 HEMI ® V8 engine to
deliver a staggering 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, plus a wicked-fast time on the drag strip: 0
– 60 mph in 4.4 seconds and a National Hot Rod Association (NHRA)-certified quarter-mile cover in 12.9
seconds. Add in an 8-speed performance-tuned transmission, sport-tuned All-Wheel Drive (AWD), high-flow
dual exhaust with four-inch outlets, beefy 295 tires on 20- by 10-inch wheels and massive Brembo ® brakes
and it’s basically having a three-row Charger.
3’500 KG

EXCEPTIONAL TOWING
ALL-WHEEL DRIVE (AWD) /// Durango was designed for uncompromising and refined performance even in the worst conditions.
Forge on with available AWD. The system helps enhance driver confidence by leveraging the SUV’s 50/50 weight distribution.
Durango offers three AWD systems — a performance-tuned system for the 6.4L HEMI ® V8 engine, a two-speed, active on-demand
system for the 5.7L HEMI V8 engine. Each one greatly enhances the vehicle’s traction and handling by delivering a smooth driving
experience over a wide range of road conditions.
Just because Durango is powered by brute strength doesn’t mean it can’t appeal to your refined side. Slide into the driver’s seat and enjoy premium comfort. Even the steering wheel offers a range of standard and available high-tech features to keep control at your fingertips. Standard buttons on the front side of the steering wheel control the customizable 7-inch Driver Information Digital Cluster Display.
There are more than 50 different seating configurations to provide the optimum balance between passenger and cargo capacity. Available seven-passenger seating includes a 60/40 split-fold-flat second-row reclining bench seat with integrated padded center armrest with cup holders and 50/50 split-folding third-row seat.
Opt for cloth or heated leather-trimmed fold-flat second-row Captain’s Chairs with soft-touch armrests and a floor-mounted mini console with cup holders for six-passenger seating. Second-row passengers will enjoy convenient access to vent controls, available charge-only USB ports and an available 115-volt power outlet.Outfit Durango with the available Blu-ray TM /DVD system and the Harman Kardon ® Premium Audio System with 19 speakers, subwoofer and 825-watt amplifier for the ultimate entertainment experience.

Datsun celebrates 100,000 sales in Russia

MOSCOW (Nov. 21, 2018) – Datsun celebrated an important milestone as its 100,000th customer in Russia joined the Datsun family. The customer and his family took delivery of their new Datsun on-DO from the company’s outlet in the city of Perm, located in the European part of the country, near the Ural Mountains.
To commemorate this special occasion, the customer received a set of exciting gifts including winter tires, a car alarm system and a certificate extending his Datsun after-warranty service from three years to five.
To further celebrate, Datsun is offering customers who purchase Datsun on-DO sedan or Datsun mi-DO hatchback by December 31, 2018 the choice of one of the three same gifts.
“Reaching the 100,000 mark is indeed a proud moment for us,” said Andrey Chirkov, head of Datsun in Russia. “At Datsun, it’s not simply about buying or selling a car, but the experience of interacting with the brand through quality service and special programs – both during the buying and ownership period.”

Offering the functionality of a crossover and an impressive suite of modern, reliable technologies, the Datsun CROSS is set to make a major impact on the Indonesian market. It marks the next phase in Datsun’s plan to bring personal mobility within the reach of a new generation of customers looking for a car they can be proud of.
“The new Datsun CROSS is more than just a car. It was created to become a partner fitting the diverse lifestyles of Indonesian customers,” said Eiichi Koito, president director of Nissan Motor Indonesia. “We’ve carefully studied the requirements of the younger generation to develop a car that will fit the needs of the trendsetters in the market.”
The Datsun CROSS is the result of the collaboration of a team of designers and engineers from multiple countries, including Japan and Indonesia.
The car gives drivers a full array of the latest technologies and technical solutions, including high-performance suspension, Xtronic CVT (continuously variable transmission) and advanced safety features such as VDC (vehicle dynamics control), ABS (anti-lock braking system) and dual-SRS air bags.
This multipurpose, multifunctional vehicle will be available at all Datsun outlets across the country. Additional information is available here: https://www.datsun.co.id/datsun-cross.html
