The F-Pace, Jaguar’s first SUV, brings the brand’s new styling and athletic moves to a crowded SUV market. Cayenne’s, Q7’s, X5’s and all the others have to watch their backs with this hitting UAE roads very soon. Powertrains include a standard 340-hp supercharged V6 or an optional monster 380hp supercharged V6. Both will have an eight-speed automatic gearbox and all-wheel drive. A diesel will appear later but is unlikely for UAE markets. Aluminum chassis promises to save weight and create a rigid structure to help back up the F-Pace’s sporty intentions. Is it a lifted F-Type? We do think so, but we will know for sure when it hits the market in the spring of 2016.

Drivers eating while driving can now be fined up to Dh1,000 and get 12 black points added on their traffic record under a new traffic law to be enforced in the UAE as part of a police campaign to reduce road accidents.

Major General Mohammed Saif Al Zafin, Assistant Police Commander-in-Chief for Operations in Dubai, said the new offences include having drinks, applying make-up, reading papers, and using your mobile phone while driving.

He also said police will be authorized to fine drivers who are involved in such offences, adding that the offence and the fine amount would be determined by the policeman.

“All these offences will be classified under one offence involving failure by the drivers to concentrate on the road by getting busy with other things,” he told Al Bayan daily.

“The new law also involves impounding the drivers car if it is proved that the offence endangered other people,” he added.

The AWD model is pure rear-wheel drive until the full power is required up front, at which time it can be shifted forward in incredible 165 milliseconds. All trims get a ZF eight-speed automatic gearbox, but the supercharged 35t gets the sturdier and more sporty 8HP70 transmission, while the all other models get the more compact and smoother  8HP45 transmission.

Interior options will include an In-Control Touch infotainment system with an eight-inch screen or an In-Control Touch Pro system with a 10.2-inch screen featuring Apple Watch connectivity.

The Bugatti Chiron can do everything,  but the Bentley Bentayga can do it all. Basically, Volkswagen can do it all, as long as you have a lot of cash hidden underneath your pillow.

Here’s a quick summary on how Bentley made its first supercar SUV:

The Bentley Bentayga is not just a Audi Q7 wearing a different shell despite sporting the same electromechanical active roll stabilization as the TDI SQ7. Instead, Bentley spent a lot of money and time by creating something that can make you forget about all the fully loaded Porsche Cayenne Turbo’s on the road, and an SUV that will also take on whatever Rolls-Royce is cooking up in their kitchen at the moment.

On the roads, this all-wheel drive all-terrain giant that will reach 0-100 km/h in 4 seconds flat and keep on going until it hits an incredible 300.94 km/h. That’s just insane. What’s the heart of the Bugatti Chiron? A 1,478 horsepower quad-turbo W16 monster. What’s in the Bentley Bentayga? A new twin-turbo W12, with 600 horses and impressive 663 ft-lb of torque.

This SUV will fly through everything even if you rip parts off it in the process, because it needs to. The clients who buy these things often live next to sand dunes like Dubai or in countries where roads can tear an economy car’s wheel off if you hit the wrong pothole, but don’t worry – Bentley got you covered even if you need to go deep into the woods at night with some gardening equipment at the back for some reason.

In the Autobid German magazine, it was reported that the X3 SUV exceeded the European air pollution limit. In response, BMW AG stated that it is far from cheating concerning emission tests.

The stock has decreased up to 9.7 percent, in the past 4 years, because of the issue that the luxury car has been involved in the scandal concerning diesel emissions which led the Volkswagen AG’s CEO to resign on Monday.

The four wheeled vehicle alternatives to BMW had 11 times emissions than BMW. The test was performed by the International Council on Clean Transportation. This is the same group whose warning was directed to US regulators to find the issue related to Audi diesel powered cars and VW in the lab as well as the testing lab, Autobid stated.

The BMW has not rigged or manipulated any emission test. However, the company responded that they perceive the legal requirement in each of the country. Then added, that the BMW are not familiar with the prescribed road test and these are not in any system in their car that responds contrarily to the test that would be run on the road.

“Two other observations by ICCT show that BMW X5 SUV and other vehicles owned by BMW obey the legal requirements on the emissions of certain gases which are dangerous for lungs like nitrogen oxides,” BMW explained.
