Jaguar Goes Electric

As the 50th anniversary marking the launch of the Jaguar XJ approaches, Jaguar has been reimagining this classic sedan. With more luxury car companies taking notes from Tesla’s success, Jaguar is following suit, announcing that the 2019 Jaguar XJ will be a hatchback electric vehicle. This newly redesigned car will have an aluminum frame and twin motors that power all-wheel drive. Jaguar intends on ensuring this car’s output rivals non-electric vehicles to keep with its sports car roots.

This electric vehicle’s range will take you over 300 miles before needing to be charged again. Although this is less than Tesla’s over 600-mile range on the newer models, the choice to cross over to a fully electric engine is unique when compared to other brands Jaguar competes with. It’s projected that electric vehicles and hatchbacks will surpass sedans in popularity in the coming years.

Though this vehicle doesn’t launch until late in 2018, THE COLLECTION carries the luxurious 2018 sedan model, with a range of colors and specs to choose from. The Ugo Colombo Miami dealership THE COLLECTION is Miami’s foremost luxury automotive dealership serving Aventura, Brickell, Coral Gables, Miami Beach.

The 2018 Alfa Romeo SUV

A two-liter, all-aluminum turbocharged, four-cylinder engine powers this triumphant SUV. The 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Ti packs Italian flare and engineering into a sleek SUV frame. Alfa Romeo designed this automobile to be lightweight. They optimized speed and efficiency by using materials like carbon fiber and aluminum. The meticulously structured frame is evenly distributed across the front and rear axles, so you feel like you’re driving on a cloud.

The Stelvio Ti is named after the Stelvio pass, an incredibly challenging road to drive in the Italian Alps. This SUV is agile and controlled, both qualities one would need driving in such a place. Grab onto the heated steering wheel and strap in for a joyride. Feel free to take this machine on winding roads where SUV’s typically don’t perform well on. Slip into Dynamic driving mode and you’re on your way.

This SUV has a 280-horsepower engine at 5200 RPM. Going 0-60 in 5.4 seconds leaves other SUV’s in the dust, as most cannot reach that speed in under 6 seconds. With fuel economy at 28 highway MPG, this SUV can cruise for longer. Longer highway driving is a delight in Normal driving mode.

AlfaRomeoCarOfTheYear

Motor Trend has recently named Alfa Romeo’s Giulia Car of The Year. This is a milestone for Fiat Chrysler, the Italian-American car company that has been working on introducing the perfect luxury car to an upscale market.

Motor Trend chose Giulia because it shines lustrously among the status quo of cars formulaically mass produced. “There is sorcery in this car,” remarked Motor Trend’s road test editor Chris Walton. This vehicle can cast a spell on its driver. One of the judges involved in this decision said, “This car saves the sport sedan market,” as it doubles as an exhilarating sports vehicle with lateral grip, and by adjusting the throttle, it becomes the prime way to get to and from work on the highway.

The Alfa Romeo Giulia is a well-equipped luxury sports vehicle that is more than just easy on the eyes. This impressive vehicle doesn’t disappoint when it comes to what’s under the hood with a 505-horsepower engine. The car comes with its own safety and security features that include Integrated Brake System, Forward Collision Warning Plus, Available Safety, Advanced driver assistance and much more.

Porsche Cayenne’s European Affair

Porsche’s third generation Cayenne is set to come out in 2019 as a 2018 model–but only in the US. Europe will see it first. The current 2017 model will carry over through 2018 in the states. Porsche unveiled the 2019 model in Frankfurt which revealed a higher price point and less supply. In light of the Volkswagen diesel engine scandal, Porsche will not be releasing the diesel model in the United States.

Porsche said it will be phasing out the Cayenne, with the Macan model coming out on top for many car Porsche lovers. The new 2019 model will feature smaller, lighter engines packed with even more power. For a mid-sized crossover, it shows some impressive stats. It has a 3.0-liter single-turbo V-6 engine with 340 horsepower–up from 300 in the current model. It has a 0-60 record of 5.9 seconds, which is a huge improvement from 7.3 in the previous model.

So how did they make all of these improvements? The Cayenne will be made almost entirely of aluminum, which saved 143 pounds. Additionally, the lithium ion polymer battery is 22 pounds lighter. New suspension features take advantage of this weight savings.

For more information about this new model, visit AutoWeek. The 2017/2018 Cayenne model in the US is still a vehicle to behold. To find out how you can take a test drive, visit the Ugo Colombo Miami dealership, The Collection for gorgeous Porsches and more.
