ALL-NEW PEUGEOT 208 Specifications

Discover the all-new PEUGEOT 208’s strong personality from the very first glimpse. The low figure, long bonnet and sensual curves hint at its sporty seductive spirit, and the bright and original body colours further enhance its irresistibility! Its assertive character is further underlined by the Black Diamond roof, gloss black wheel arches and gloss window surround and diamond cut alloy wheels with inserts.

The 208 comes with the choice of three different 1.2-litre petrols, a 1.5 diesel or pure-electric version. Unless you’re doing huge mileage then ignore the diesel and head straight for the 100hp 1.2 petrol, which is punchy, yet smooth and will return more than 50mpg if driven carefully. If you have the budget and the charging, though, the pure-electric e-208 is even punchier around town and more relaxed thanks to its silent operation.

2020 Honda CRF1100L Africa Twin Specifications

The legendary Honda Africa Twin returns for 2020 with some serious updates. The engine is bigger, the chassis is lighter, and the technology is out of this world—but the most important update is the addition of two new models to the range: the Africa Twin Adventure Sport ES and Africa Twin Adventure Sport DCT.

Powered by a snappy 998cc parallel twin, the Africa Twin shared DNA with Honda’s Dakar competition bike, the CRF450R Rally, with a semi-double cradle frame, 21-inch front/18-inch rear spoked wheels with tube-type tires, extra-long suspension travel (9.1 inches front, 8.7 inches rear) and nearly 10 inches of ground clearance. It was offered as a standard model with a 6-speed manual transmission with an assist-and-slipper clutch, or as a DCT model with Honda’s Dual Clutch Transmission with automatic and manual modes.

2020 Kia Telluride Specifications

The Kia Telluride is a good midsize SUV. This brand-new vehicle has seating for up to eight in a high-end cabin, and you’ll be treated to a gentle ride. The Telluride comes with a generous list of driver aids, a large cargo hold, and a lengthy warranty.It has the best combination of cargo and passenger space, safety and reliability ratings, positive reviews from automotive journalists, and available family-friendly features.

Under the hood of every 2020 Telluride is a naturally aspirated V-6 that makes 291 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. Its engine pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission that feeds the front wheels in the standard format—all-wheel drive is also optional across the board. The top-of-the-line Telluride SX we tested charged from zero to 60 mph in 7.0 seconds. However, the big Kia didn’t feel as responsive to throttle inputs at lower speeds as did some of its turbocharged rivals. The Telluride’s ride is on the firm side, with harsh pavement sometimes throwing the three-row SUV off its intended path. A self-leveling rear air suspension is also available. Brakes are excellent and the steering is precise with a nice heft to its feel. The Telluride boasts 8.0 inches of ground clearance for off-road excursions, and it can tow up to 5000 pounds.

Specifications

Engine Type Gas
Transmission 8-speed automatic
Drive Type All wheel drive
Cylinders V6
Combined MPG 21
Total Seating 7
Basic Warranty 5 yr./ 60000 mi.

2020 Toyota Camry Specifications

The Camry is one of the last of its ilk to offer a V6 option, and its 3.5-liter makes a stout 301 horsepower, better than any competitor’s turbo four. The V6 requires stepping up to the TRD, XLE or XSE trim levels, but we strongly recommend this robust and characterful engine. A naturally aspirated 2.5-liter four is the base engine, and its 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque (206 hp and 186 lb-ft in the XSE) are adequate but unremarkable. Both engines work with an eight-speed automatic, which provides more satisfying response than the increasingly common CVTs seen elsewhere.

The big change for 2020 is the performance-oriented Camry outfitted by Toyota Racing Development (TRD). This racier Camry rides on retuned dampers supported by stiffer springs that lower the ride height by 0.6 inch. Beefier anti-roll bars, additional chassis bracing, and wider lightweight wheels wrapped in summer rubber prepare the Camry TRD for the Old Country Buffet 500. The front brake rotors increase in diameter by 0.9 inch and are clamped by dual-piston calipers, and there’s a TRD-specific exhaust system to sound the part. The exterior is complemented by a unique aerodynamic body kit, and the interior is dressed in red to complete the look. Previously unavailable, Android Auto capability is now standard in all Camry models.

Specifications

Engine Type Gas
Transmission 8-speed shiftable automatic
Drive Type Front wheel drive
Cylinders Inline 4
Combined MPG 32
Total Seating 5
Basic Warranty 3 yr./ 36000 mi.

2020 Ducati Streetfighter V4 Specifications

Ducati stripped down its Panigale V4 superbike and made a handful of aesthetic and functional changes ahead of the 2020 model year to bring us the Streetfighter V4. The resulting machine is truly something to behold. The redesigned rider’s triangle and stripped-down visage of the Streetfighter V4 and V4 S are joined by a 200-plus horsepower Desmosedici Stradale engine and a robust electronics suite to round out the package and deliver the performance and control we expect from the Italian giant

The minimalist full-LED headlight captures the spirit of the Streetfighter V4 perfectly. On the one hand, it recalls the front of the Panigale V4 and, on the other, evokes the crazy grin of the Joker (the comic strip character from which the Ducati Style Center drew inspiration for this new Bologna-built naked). Already featured on the Panigale V4 and SuperSport, the V-shaped DRL is another clear Ducati hallmark.
