Mitsuibishi has confirmed that the Shogun Sport SUV will return to the UK market early in 2018 - over a decade since the departure of the previous model from the UK market.
Anti-lock braking systems (ABS) are a standard feature on most cars, courtesy of legislation that has made it compulsory to fit them to mass-produced cars. The system uses electronics to optimise the effectiveness of a car's braking system, and it's a major boost in vehicle safety when compared to cars that aren't equipped with ABS that rely on the driver to make the most of the braking power available.
High-ranking exec departures suggest that major questions about Faraday's viability as a car company have not been answered -- and they're unlikely to be answered in the near future as a raft of new and affordable electric cars near commercial launch. Faraday's pitch for a high-priced and high-tech electric car has not become more attractive or more realistic in the months following the prototype's debut, and major automakers are currently racing to field cars toward the middle and bottom of the price ladder in their respective segments, aiming to make them viable cost competitors to gas- and diesel-engined vehicles.

To save you the math, that's an average of about 43,000 miles per year, or about 117 miles per day, every day, for 18 years. Blackwell logs a lot of highway trips to Georgia and southern Florida for work.
In the cabin we expect the production QX50 to stick close to the finish and technology previewed in the concept, boasting a minimalist dashboard design and digital instrument display.
With the accelerator pedal mashed to the firewall, the Accord 1.5T ran to 60 mph in 7.3 seconds and waltzed through the quarter-mile in 15.7 seconds at 91 mph. For comparison’s sake, that’s well behind the 6.1-second zero-to-60-mph run of the six-speed-manual-equipped 2.0-liter turbo Accord. And the 2.0-liter Accord with the 10-speed automatic dang near defied physics by sprinting to 60 mph in only 5.5 seconds and pulling a 14.1-second, 102-mph performance in the quarter-mile.
