The most interesting change concerns once again the engine with six cylinders arranged at 3.8 V. Not only is it more powerful (549 hp hours), but thanks to greater efficiency of cooling systems, exhaust and intake, the consumption fell to 11.8 liters. Although it may seem insignificant in absolute terms, we must consider that it is almost 70 horsepower more than the initial version. This new engine management system has produced other direct benefits, including improved torque from 612 to 632 Nm, which will be delivered in continuous mode between 3,200 and 5,800 rpm.
Even the standard equipment, of course, a number of improvements, such as the introduction of modern elements (traffic sign recognition, night vision system, Internet connection, etc..), The adaptive lighting for xenon headlights iDrive to control or command data over a 10.2-inch screen.
For all of the energy, both political and economic, that is spent on the external affects of cars, not enough is spent on the dangerous effects of the chemicals inside of cars and the long-term medical conditions that it can cause in riders. There are so many potential dangers that have been found in automobiles in recent studies that there has actually been political action against the materials that are used inside the plastic and cars, as well as the materials that are used for many other parts of vehicles in general.
Below are some of the more relevant dangers that have been found in automobiles by recent studies, and what you can do to avoid them.
– Compounds in the plastics
If you have ever wondered how they get the plastics inside of vehicles to feel all different kinds of ways – hard when they need it hard, soft when they needed soft – the answer is chemicals that can do a great deal of harm to you if you are around them too much. Many of the materials and plastics in vehicles are also used in PVCs, which have long been shown to be quite detrimental to the long-term health of humans if used improperly.
However, with vehicles, these compounds used in these plastics take on a new level of potential danger. Because of the temperature fluctuation inside cars, these compounds act to become more dangerous when exposed to summer temperatures. They also become quite dangerous if you allow the inside of your car to get dirty, as these compounds will input themselves into the dust particles that you breathe and off of your dashboard and windshield.
Some of the long-term negative effects that prolonged exposure to these compounds in the plastics can cause are mesothelioma, asthma, liver dysfunction and digestive dysfunction. All of these conditions are conditions that cannot be cured, and remain as a permanent lower quality of life for those people unfortunate enough to contract these conditions.
However, you can avoid a great deal of these compounds if you simply keep the inside of your car clean and free of dust particles. These dust particles tend to accumulate on the dashboard and on the inside windshield, so make sure that these two areas are especially clean when you get ready to drive.
Also, another way that you can stay away from these particles is to have someone else clean out your vehicle and do the appropriate services around the brakes, struts and engine parts. However, if you insist on doing these functions yourself, beware of asbestos especially in older vehicles. Exposure to asbestos can also lead to mesothelioma. They are in parts like drum brakes, gaskets, clutches, etc. Make sure that you were a gas mask when you are under the car and when you are lifting the hood of the car in order to access any part of the car that is plastic or that gets extremely hot when the car is in use.

Although it sounds strange, even a 3-liter twin-turbo engine can fit into the logic "downsizing." This technique, which undoubtedly marked the first decade of the century, is to supercharge displacements less interesting data to keep power and torque. Audi was the last to introduce a new example in this regard, and has developed a new and undisputed leader in terms of efficiency.

These systems work together with the night vision system, which uses an infrared camera (or thermal cameras), which requires no previous emission of ultraviolet light (and save energy). The camera is placed at the top of the windshield with the point of view up to 24 degrees and has a range exceeding 100 meters.
Headlights have additional lights that respective light beams and directing lights for pedestrians (or animal) that detects recognition system. This makes it stand out from the shadows (and usually at a distance that light to illuminate as much as only the feet).
This additional light will turn on only when pedestrians are too far away (outside the scope of the low beam, which should be between 50 and 80 m), when the car approached, and the lights that normally illuminate pedestrians and additional lights went out.
This system recognizes the positive people at a distance of 97 meters on average, regardless of the weather. If the driver saw the pedestrian before (or other constraints) can react and prevent the occurrence of various violations and scope.
A study by BMW, pedestrians wearing dark clothing at night and driving with dipped lights, recognizable at a glance by the driver when and only 29 meters away. To give us an idea, running at 80 km / h, stopping distance is about 60 to 65 m. With the new security system is three times the distance at which we are aware of pedestrians or animals.
This system seems very attractive. Now we have to see how much it costs and how quickly became popular makes and models in general (and affordable).
