My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

The all-new Nissan Micra now comes with the full five star Euro NCAP, gained with ease.
All-new Micra gets highest star-rating in the UK under latest dual-test system
Standard-fit Intelligent Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Recognition and Intelligent Lane Intervention helped secure the five star rating
All-new Micra on sale now across Europe and available for test drives
The all-new Nissan Micra has been awarded a five-star safety rating in the UK from Euro NCAP, thanks to the standard fitment of intelligent driving technologies in the Safety Assist category of testing.
The Micra was tested under Euro NCAP’s newest protocols. The UK range of Micra achieves the maximum possible five stars thanks to an extensive set of safety features standard across all grades.
Every Micra is fitted with Intelligent Emergency Braking (IEB), an intelligent driving technology which can detect a slowing or stopping vehicle ahead and automatically apply the brakes. Depending on the relative speeds, this can avoid an impact or reduce the severity.
Also standard across the range is Pedestrian Recognition technology, which is linked to IEB, and Intelligent Lane Intervention (ILI), a first for the B-hatchback segment.
When ILI is activated – for example, by crossing a line in the centre of the road – the steering wheel gently vibrates. The car’s brakes are automatically applied, individually depending on the direction of travel required, to guide the driver smoothly back into the correct lane.
When taken into account by Euro NCAP, this extensive set of features earned the new Micra a high Safety Assist score, contributing to an overall rating of five stars.
Every new Micra comes with six airbags as standard, plus seat belt warnings and seat belt height adjustment in the front. The Isofix car child seat fitting system can be used with the new Micra, including in the front passenger seat, for the best possible child protection.
Additional safety features on every Micra include Electronic Stability Program, anti-lock brakes and Hill Start Assist. A speed limiter, automatic headlight sensor, automatic hazard lights and a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System are also fitted.
