รีวิว Q&A s auto audi a8

Is there one secret about luxury cars that people should know?

Volkwagen Phaeton and Bentley, Source: Reditt You do not need to be an auto-insider to know that all that you see at first glance is just part of the whole picture. First of all many luxury cars are simply regular cars in better packaging. Take for example offerings from Volkswagen. Many platforms are shared, and there are glaring examples where there even is overlap between lower end models having more equipment than high brand value equivalents. The Volkswagen Phaeton, though very expensive and really more than a true luxury car was built on the same platform as a Bentley in it’s first generation,. Bentley also is a Volkwagen owned Brand. The Audi A8 also used that same platform. But the Phaeton actually was hand built and the Audi A8 was not. The Phaeton was in some ways more special than either of it’s stablemates. Back in the mid-2000’s this was done and really you could see the resemblance. The same was true for Volkwagen Toureg and the Porsche Cayenne. Today, they have gotten better at disguising this, as the platforms are already intended for this purpose of sharing, as opposed to before where new models had to adapt to the platform or architecture as variants were made. Sharing platform and architecture is just the beginnings of many things about luxury cars that are really not so well hidden much of the time. MQB Platform shared with VW and Audi. Source: Autoevolution. Engines are now very software dependent. So the same engine can be used, but it’s overall performance can be tuned out for lower level brand names. Of course there are a few mechanical items which also go missing, yet overall the software is the main component. Again, the Volkswagen Group comes to mind and especially their 2.0 Liter Turbo Engine. In an Audi it will produce more horse power than in a Volkswagen or Skoda. In fact even in the Volkswagen branded cars, the same power plant can yield 20% more power in an Arteon than a Passat. So it should come as no surprise that there are ways out there to increase power on a conventional Passat after purchase. Incredibly, one may find more features in a Mid Range car than with a Luxury Car that does not have all the option packages checked out. This includes safety equipment a lot of times, but the kind which runs on Aritfical intelligence and is computer dependent as opposed to design dependent. Luxury Cars which do not share platforms tend to have better crash designs and even without technologies like Lane Assist and Intelligent Cruise Control, they can still be better in accidents. Better steel may also be used in a Luxury Car along with gradation of steel densities to create optimal crash safety. Crash Safety, Landrover Discovery 2017, Euro NCAP. The place where there simply is no comparing is inside the car. Luxury Cars use better materials and better sound deadening. It is not the 1980s when Cadillac tried to re-badge a Chevrolet Cavalier as a Cadillac Cimmeron, though the car still sold fairly well. Today even entry level luxury cars, may employ hydraulic shocks and better vibration control. There is no denying most of the time, the ride is better and quieter. Handling may or may not be better, as a sporty mid range cars can easily better a Luxury Car with no sporting intentions. For most people, the driving experience of even an entry level luxury car will be better than a fully loaded mid range product. The reasons are found through out the car, but I notice the quality of the seat designs matter a lot, even if less room is available in the smaller luxury car. 2020 Range Rover Evoque Interior, with Ambient Lighting in Cloud color Combination. Entry Level Luxury Cars and SUVs may be the best balance of cost and sophisticated design for a person who does not require a large vehicle. In all reality most people do not use their brand new car for hauling large and potentially damaging items for the car. This equation changes if there are children involved, and then price differential makes buying a full size SUV from a Luxury Car Maker something to think about. The price difference between a Landrover Discovery Sport and a full size Discovery can be 20-30k in real world optioning. On the other hand they could go and get a Honda Passport for nearly the same price as smaller Discovery Sport. They are not comparable feature wise or in driving dynamics, but the Honda is still a very good product. The logic is the same for a BMW or Mercedes and they may be even more costly. Each person has their own reasons for buying the car they do. It is important to realize that there never have been more affordable entry level luxury choices as there are today, so if the needs and utility add up, the choice to for being in a prestige brand is not as big a jump as it was a generation ago. 2020 Landrover, Ranger Rover, Evoque.

What is the safest car one can buy?

I’ll share you some of the aspects of some cars, based on the information's stated below, you may decide it. 2018 Mercedes S Class Pre-Safe Sound Feature. One of the major accidents that happen in a car accident is ear deafening. Mercedes went a step ahead to reduce this impact. The sensors inside the car detect an impending impact and prepare itself to reduce the noise of the impact by creating a pink noise inside the cabin. In this way, the car protects your ears to get damaged by any severe impact. Advanced Assist Systems This feature adjusts the speed of the car based on the posted signs and route features on the roads. Active Distance Assists Distronic & Active Steering Assist This feature helps support the driver by keeping a safe distance from the ahead moving vehicle. Pre-safe impulse side impact The car senses that a side impact is about to occur, a small chamber inside the seat inflates, gently nudging you away from the impact. It’s a small movement that can have a huge impact on your safety. URL: 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Review Audi A8 Side Impact Protection This car too has almost similar features like the Mercedes had, but the side impulse feature in this car differs a bit. If the side impact is about to take place from the right-hand side, the suspensions of the cars on both the wheels on the R.H.S. lifts the cabin by few inches upwards, hence reducing the effect of impact. Like this below. URL : 2018 Audi A8 Pre Sense Side Protection & Cross Traffic Assist The Range Rover Autobiography Excluding the side impact collision and sound feature, this car too has many features similar to the above two cars. But this car has one feature that no other car has provided. The Cabin Air Ionisation feature: The feature uses the nanotechnology to improve the air quality inside the vehicle. The system condenses moisture from the cabin air and breaks it into tiny electrically charged particles that react with air contaminants to neutralize odors, bacteria, and allergens. Shielded by water, the particles last longer and disperse further than those from conventional ionizers, making them more effective and maintaining a healthier cabin for you and your family.

What are some of the worst and best brand promotions in movies?

I’ll start with the best brand promotion in a movie. Promotion of Audi in movie Transporter II-III, the TV Series and later on in movie Transporter Refueled: Audi played it so well by beating the competition hands down in the same movie. So what does this film let us think about Audi? For one thing, it beats the opposition. The Mercedes E class is the nearest contender to Audi in extravagance cars. In the epic auto pursue scene, the Mercedes is no match for the Audi, further proposing its prevalence. The entire motion picture appears like an expanded Audi business with close ups on the logo and demonstrating garish innovative components in the new A8. The motion picture proposes that the Audi A8 can rough terrain, drive on two wheels between two eighteen-wheelers, and achieve rates of up to 220 km/hr. Gracious and obviously it's additionally impenetrable. In Everything's an Argument, Andrea Lunsford claims, "A more evident approach to assemble a passionate attach is essentially to help perusers relate to the encounters," (Lunsford 34). This one scene alone could have earned Audi a few millions dollars and a huge number of potential customers. Had the auto not possessed the capacity to out perform the Mercedes, both the principle characters would have kicked the bucket. But since the Audi could achieve top paces while as yet looking after strength, the terrible folks were the ones who passed on. This may subliminally propose to viewers that the great folks drive Audis and the terrible folks drive Mercedes. These components are influencing viewers' sentiment and persuading them to love the auto. Lunsford states: "position and promoting for specific items and brands is a greatly solid contention in itself" (Lunsford 328). By putting the Audi A8 on display for most of the film, Transporter 3 is arguing for the auto. The contention is straightforward: purchase the auto, carry on with the same courageous way of life. The utilization of the Audi A8 in Transporter certainly profited both sides. The motion picture gets the opportunity to utilize another amazing auto, which adds to the offer of their film. Audi is unquestionably profiting by the utilization of their A8 on the grounds that individuals will need to say they possess the auto from Transporter. The utilization of the auto influences viewers feelings making them need to possess the auto. Larger part of the motion picture is spent inside that auto associating the characters to the Audi. For Audi to advantage, the support in Transporter expected to speak to viewers' logos. For instance, on the off chance that you purchase the new Audi A8 you will look pretty much as magnificent as Frank Martin (played by Jason Statham) does driving it (IMDb). The film could remain without the A8 and could undoubtedly be supplanted with an alternate auto, yet they picked this auto since like the primary character Frank, the Audi A8 is useful yet bold and complex. The Audi A8's utilization in Transporter speaks to viewers' ethos, poignancy and logos. Each time the auto is driven or seen is another endeavor at convincing the viewers to go out and purchase the auto. Hats off. Worst brand promotion in a movie: The Award goes to 55 different brands that chose Transformers 4.Why? The robotic blockbuster gloated 55 separate brands, including Armani, Budweiser and Yili milk. And none of them got enough traction due to the inconsiderable number of frames allotted to each brand. Some other blunders worth mentioning: Louis Vuitton sued the creators of "Hangover: Part II" for what the fashioner brand portrayed as a culpable item arrangement. Clearly, the pack was a fake. Michael J Fox promotes an extraordinary trim free combine of Nike's in "Back to the Future." Unfortunately, Nike did not gain by its venture – it just manufactured 1,000 sets of Hyperdunks, the sneakers taking after those highlighted in the film.

Which car company out of Audi, BMW and Mercedes is considered the best in the premium segment?

The above mentioned are the 3 German automotive giants with a large loyal consumer base (for each of them alike). The battle royale. The BMW 320d Touring, The Audi A4 Estate and The Mercedes Benz c220d Wagon on a road test. It is true that these three German giants compete in the same market space and that all of these are equally popular (Audi lacks the same Brand prestige but is no less of a popular brand) The very best of Luxury sedans from the German giants. From left to right, The Audi A8, BMW 7-Series & The Mercedes Benz S-Class. The most liked ? Eh… Each of these brands have there own core ethos when it comes to their cars and these ethos are the reason the consumers buy these manufacturer’s cars. Let's talk Mercedes Benz. These are the cars that come with a more egalitarian design and chauffeur driven sedans. This brand is all about tech like SONAR and Auto Park Assist (You get the idea). The main offerings are geared towards comfort and ride quality over everything else. These cars are usually brought for being driven around in style. Their superior Brand prestige (Bagde/Snob Value) doesn't hurt in making this decision either. The 2017 Mercedes Benz E-class (w213), a semi autonomous German sedan. I know, it looks very similar to the S-class (and not to mention, the C-class) BMWs however are a different breed. Their main emphasis is on the driver dynamics. Everything else takes a back seat for this Manufacturer from Bavaria. You would know what I'm on about if you had driven a BMW 320d/328i and a Mercedes Benz C220CDi/C200 back to back. These cars are sportier than the other two brands. These cars are more fun to drive than be driven around in. This would be the driving enthusiast’s choice. The 2017 BMW 5-Series (G30) taking a completely new form (after the 7-series). The Audi, as a brand, is a more premium spin off from their Parent Company, The VW. This would be evident once you step out of a VW Passat (or even the Skoda Superb for that matter) and into an Audi. The interiors & the switchgear feel identical. This is one of the reason why this brand enjoys a lower snob value when compared to the German Independents. Their understated design language is another factor. These are the cars you buy if you are looking for a chauffeur driven and least exciting vehicles on a (relatively lower) budget. The 2017 Audi A4 with the design refresh. (Notice the Skoda Superb’s Taillights ?) These are the unique ethos each brand stands for. However, all of the above brands are equally popular (in a country like India)

Why does Tesla Model X have a "bioweapon defense mode"?

I just wrote about this today over at Innovately. Copy/pasted below: This is the real reason the Tesla Model X has a Bioweapon Defense Mode The finally sort-of-but-not-really-launched Tesla Model X is many things: it’s absurdly fast, incredibly spacious, unbelievably high-tech, virtually un-crashable, and, in the event it does manage to get into a mess, is matched with only the Model S in terms of its crash worthiness. Plain and simple then, this is the fastest, roomiest, safest vehicle on the market today, full stop. And oh, by the way, it’s of course electric. (Yes, it’s incredibly expensive, but not when compared to similar class cars like the BMW 7er, Mercedes S Class, and Audi A8, or those marques’ respective SUV models.) Thing is though, it’s also the weirdest car that’s (sort of) on the market today: no, not because of it’s gull- falcon-wing doors — those are awesome, not weird — but because, you see, it has a climate control system that includes not just the usual “AUTO” and “Recirculate” buttons, but also a legitimate, no-joke button emblazoned with the internationally recognized biohazard symbol. Question is, though, why? And no, “because they can” or “because brilliant marketing,” while valid, are not sufficient. Surely there must be more to it than this. And there is. SOURCE: Tesla But first, a bit of background on what exactly this Bioweapon Defense Mode (can we just call this BDM?) really is: a medical-grade HEPA (high-efficiency particulate arrestance) air filter that can remove virtually all foreign particulate matter including pollen, bacteria, pollution, even viruses. While this is all very impressive, this is merely its passive defense mechanism. The Model X can pressurize itself like an airplane to increase the cabin pressure to exceed the outside atmospheric pressure. Even more impressive is the active mechanism employed by the BDM: surely an industry first for a passenger vehicle, the Model X can pressurize itself — yes, like an airplane — to increase the cabin pressure to exceed the outside atmospheric pressure. Effectively what this means is that no outside air can flow inside the vehicle; and what little should still happen to enter will be effectively filtered out by the aforementioned hospital-calibre air filter. Incredible stuff, this, especially considering that just three years ago — August 2012 — Tesla’s factory in Fremont was cranking out just 15 to 20 cars per week, and today it’s doing around 1,000 cars per week. Question still remains tough: why the Bioweapon Defense Mode? Surely it’s not really just a publicity stunt? No. It isn’t. There’s actually a very practical — and therefore brilliant — motivation behind this seemingly absurd bit of over-engineering: China. It’s little secret that Elon Musk is hell-bent on making Tesla succeed in China; not just because China is the largest car market in the world with 20 million cars sold last year, but because it will soon be the world’s largest electric car market, too. But Musk doesn’t just want to sell cars in China; he wants to build cars in China. The air in some of China’s most crowded cities is now fifty times the maximum safe limit of particulate matter up to 2.5 micrometers in size … and is linked to hundreds of thousands of premature deaths. Thing is though, China has a unique problem in the world: the air in its most crowded cities is now fifty times the maximum safe limit of particulate matter up to 2.5 micrometers in size, defined as “PM2.5.” While the World Health Organization considers 2.5 micrograms of PM2.5 to be the safe limit, cities in China have seen a staggering 1,157 micrograms, and have been linked to hundreds of thousands of premature deaths (and people are concerned with nuclear power?). SOURCE: Tesla The point is, pollution is a very real problem in China. To wit, it’s become common practice in Chines cities to walk about with medical-grade surgical face masks; hence the Model X’s Bioweapon Defense Mode. Suddenly, it all makes sense: not only has Musk conjured up what is arguably the greatest, most versatile, safest, and most efficient automobile ever produced on Earth; not only does he intend for Tesla to dominate — and be built in — China; but he also intends for Tesla on the one hand to become a very real stepping stone towards helping to alleviate China’s pollution problems, while simultaneously helping to protect its occupants from the smoggy stuff in the meantime. The Model X is simply the most awesome vehicle you can buy; that it can block out the stench of the slaughterhouse along the 5 freeway in California is just a neat party trick. Put another way, for those of us here in the States the Model X is simply the most awesome vehicle you can buy; that it happens to have a cool-sounding climate control mode that can block out the stench of the slaughterhouse in Kettleman along the 5 freeway in central California is just a neat party trick. For Tesla, however, it represents a brilliantly strategic vector from which to target China; for the Chinese people, it is a veritable solution to their pollution woes and a legitimate health benefit that is sorely needed.
