The web-preview of the new Honda Fit Shuttle has been released and the model is to be unveiled in the Japanese markets soon. Honda has extended the five-door hatchback subcompact car into a compact MPV that features a center-tank layout packaging arrangement.

This design will provide more interior and luggage space in the compact body of the vehicle.

The new Fit Shuttle will be available in Japan with a similar engine lineup to the hatchback version including a conventional 1.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine and a hybrid variant that features the compact and lightweight IMA (Integrated Motor Assist) system.

It will be the first wagon-type hybrid model in its class and the company is planning to launch the vehicle during this March. We don’t have any words about the vehicle’s availability in the world market. Do have a look at the leaked magazine scans that we have added with this post.

G-Power has brought on the new Hurricane GS, based on the BMW M5 (E60). They claim this model to be the fastest LPG-powered vehicle on the planet. The Hurricane GS has clinched the fastest LPG car title from the AC Schnitzer GP3.10 gas powered BMW 3-Series Coupe (E92) which hit a top speed of 318.1 km/h.

The Hurricane GS is brought with an SK II package with an LPG conversion along with two ASA superchargers, a water-cooled intercooler, and a remapped ECU. The 5.0 liter V10 engine has the capacity to offer an output of  660 PS (485 kW / 650 hp) and 650 Nm (479 Nm) of torque.

This engine can speed up the car from 0-100 km/h in 4.6 seconds and 0-200 km/h in 11.4 seconds. The top speed is claimed to be 333km/h (207 mph).

It is notable that LPG is said to be 50% less expensive than petrol and this package will cost you a whopping €33,571.43 ($43,400) and you’ll have to pay extra for the installation.

After the installation, the CO2 emission from the vehicle is expected to be reduced by 15%.

The motor will provide a constant 100 Nm of torque but can deliver 200 Nm at its peak. The car’s maximum total output reaches 200 PS (147 kW) and 500 Nm of torque.

Its fuel economy is 3.8 liters/100 km and CO2 emissions rating is a very eco-friendly 99 g/km. It will go on sale in Europe next year.

Range Rover Plans Addition in Family; New Model to be Positioned between Evoque and Range Rover Sport 9
Posted by Alex Ion in Automotive News, Autostyle, Evoque, Land Rover, Range Rover, vehicle on 08 9th, 2010

Range Rover is planning to add another model into its family of beauties. This new model will be slotted in between the new Evoque and the Range Rover Sport. This model which will share components with forthcoming Land Rover models, will cost more than the £35k Evoque, but less than the £46k Sport. Encouraged by the reception to the Evoque, the bosses in the company believe that a new model is sure to be a success.

There have been rumors that the new Rover is going to be a seven-seat ‘lifestyle’ vehicle, although other features are not available. But the new vehicle is going to help the firm’s push towards lower average CO2 emissions. However, the new car will have to provide definite variations from the other three Rovers. Even if the rumors are true, do not expect the car to be available any time soon.
