Nick Miotke/Roadshow The BMW 3 Series was long the benchmark for compact luxury/sport sedans. New competitors entered the segment, but none could dethrone the 3 Series as the outright champ of this space. But that all changed with the last-generation model, which was decidedly too soft and too numb to truly carry BMW’s “Ultimate Driving Machine” torch. This new 2019 3 Series, however, is a wonderful return to form.
It’s called the CLA35, which slots above the CLA250 and below the CLA45, and with its excellent blend of performance, tech and style, it’s a worthy addition to the lineup. AMG’s latest creation is a not-too-hot take on the CLA-Class sedan, itself a coupe-ified version of the compact A-Class.
With the exception of the Swagtron EB5 E-Bike, all of the products on this list come with variable ride modes, meaning they have different gears or levels of electric assistance. What follows is what I learned from testing different types of battery-operated rideables (I’ll be adding a skateboard or two soon), usually on a commute through the busiest sections of midtown Manhattan, around Central Park or down the West Side Highway bike path. In most cases, the top ride speed for each device will increase with more advanced settings, at the cost of battery life.
The AGs have also questioned whether Dish can be trusted to become a true fourth carrier, citing how the company has no experience running a wireless company and has routinely failed to deploy the spectrum it has won at recent auctions.
Drive Wise includes features like blind-spot monitoring, blind-spot collision avoidance, driver attention warning, lane-keeping assist, automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning, highway follow assist, rear occupant alert, safe exit assist and adaptive cruise control.
Mike Cutler/Roadshow Inside the Seltos, things are reasonably typical of a present-day Kia. The materials feel upscale for the vehicle’s modest asking price (more on that later), and both technology and safety features are abundant, though some of the latter are optional.
Kia’s Drive Wise safety suite is along for the ride once again for those who want to spend a little extra cash, and we’ve found the system to be perfectly competent in vehicles like the Stinger, Soul and Telluride.
Four-, six- and eight-cylinder engines are offered. Each one is matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission and is fitted with a particulate filter to further reduced emissions. An active exhaust system should be standard across the range as well.
Openness to experience and extroversion are considered the other two major personality factors, though this study found no links between those two factors and how participants perceived a self-driving car.
This being 2019 and all, you can also have your Seltos with a contrasting roof color. Aesthetically, it skews more toward the traditional SUV styling side of the continuum than the former, but it’s edgier-looking than the latter. Size-wise, the Seltos slots in neatly between Kia’s Soul and the larger and more expensive Sportage.
At issue is whether T-Mobile should be allowed to complete its $26.5 billion merger with Sprint. The deal was announced in 2018 and received approval from the Federal Communications Commission and Department of Justice earlier this year. The states represent the last hurdle preventing T-Mobile and Sprint from consummating their deal.
Whether you’re looking for a little exercise, want to reduce your carbon footprint or simply feel like enjoying open-air freedom on your ride to and from work, electric-powered rideables are a convenient option. A scooter for adults, e-bike and other rideable tech (none of the items listed here is a scooter for kids) will help you commute around town with ease — and with a battery, they’re environmentally friendly and offer a smooth ride to boot. id=”article-body” class=”row” section=”article-body”> This story is part of Holiday Gift Guide 2019, your source for the season’s best gifts and deals, hand-picked by the experts at CNET.
The Touch Pro infotainment system sports a 10-inch display and supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. For starters, there’s a new reconfigurable 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. A wide range of exterior enhancements have been made to the Jaguar F-Type for 2021, and a few notable changes were made inside as well. Beyond all that, two Meridian sound systems are offered, and customers can choose between two slimline seat designs, either Sport or Частотные преобразователи электротехника Performance. The Performance buckets are standard equipment on the R and First Edition variants, providing greater support at shoulder height. Sport seats will be found in regular F-Types and the R-Dynamic model. Over-the-air software updates are also standard for the latest model year.
Throughout the study, safety remained the dependent variable, which human riders scored to showcase how they perceived a ride in the vehicle. Those who participated felt least safe when they scored high in these categories, but felt the self-driving car didn’t exhibit these personality traits. Riders reported safety scores between 8.9% and 13.8% higher if the self-driving car possessed one of the three ideal traits.
