Infiniti QX60 at Tint Magic Window Tint Coral Springs. We have applied CXP 18% front windows and 55% rear windows for the best heat rejection and up to 99% UV protection. Call us for the best quality and service! (954)840-7883.
Crossover capability doesn’t come at the cost of luxury or comfort in the stylish QX60. A creamy ride, a nicely appointed interior, and an easy-access third row highlight this seven-seater. The engine is a 295-hp 3.5-liter V-6 driving the front wheels; all-wheel drive is optional. The EPA rates the hybrid model at 27 mpg highway. An 8.0-inch touchscreen is standard; rear-seat entertainment and onboard Wi-Fi are options. Also available are adaptive cruise control and automated emergency braking.
Dubbed VQ35DD, the rejuvenated engine shares less than half of its parts with last year’s V-6. Horsepower is now rated at a stout 295, and torque rises to a healthy 270 lb-ft (gains of 30 and 22). A continuously variable automatic transmission again shuffles torque to the drive wheels, which are either the front two or, as in the example tested here, all four. Although we’d prefer a traditional planetary automatic, Infiniti’s CVT is a generally agreeable unit that imitates step shifts when heavy throttle is applied so as to avoid engine droning. Furthermore, a dedicated manual mode gives the driver seven preset ratios to swap among, while a dial on the center-console tunnel offers four driving modes: Standard, Sport, Snow, and Eco, the last of which engages Infiniti’s intrusive Eco Pedal on QX60s equipped with either the Driver Assistance package or—as installed on our test car—the Deluxe Technology package. The Eco Pedal works by adding resistance to the throttle, thus discouraging the driver from exercising a heavy foot. We generally left the QX60 in the Standard setting, although we occasionally switched to Sport for its slightly sprightlier throttle response. Sport mode also brings a tendency to rev the engine past 3500 rpm, where there is indeed more power accompanied by noticeable coarseness.

Crossovers continue to crowd showrooms across the nation, but few have styling as distinctive as the QX30’s. A sweeping roofline and a high beltline make the cabin feel small and outward visibility seem compromised—that’s the price for fashion. A 208-hp 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder drives the front or all four wheels through a seven-speed automatic. A well-appointed, attractive cabin features a 7.0-inch infotainment touchscreen; a firm suspension offers fun when the road turns twisty.
The Sport label encompasses more than just spoilers and fancy wheels, as well it ought to for its hefty $8550 upcharge over the entry-level model. It gets the same 208 horsepower from the same turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four as other QX30 models (and GLA250s), but our front-wheel-drive Sport weighed nearly 200 pounds less than the all-wheel-drive edition that underwhelmed in the comparo. It also rides 0.8-inch closer to earth than the base front-drive version. That lowers the center of gravity enough to make it feel more like a hot hatchback than a shrunken SUV. Wheels grow from 18 to 19 inches in diameter and are shod with more aggressive Goodyear run-flat performance tires versus the AWD model’s all-season rubber. As in all QX30s, the transmission is a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. While none of the Sport model’s cosmetic touches nor its aggressively contoured sport seats make it a better performer, each adds a measure of engagement to the experiences of approaching, entering, and interacting with the car. It’s a different animal.
Tesla Model S at Tint Magic Window Tinting Coral Springs, Parkland, Tamarac, Coconut Creek, Sunrise, Boca Raton, Weston. Call us for the best quality and service! (954)840-7883.
With a 200-plus-mile range even for the basic models, the Tesla Model S is the first electric vehicle to catch on with mainstream luxury car buyers. Though early versions were criticized for their sparse interiors, the Model S competes in size and performance with full-size premium sedans from Europe.
Boasting up to 337 miles of range, the Model S is the all-electric dream car envied by many. Icing on the cake is Ludicrous mode, which blasts the top P100D to 60 mph in a claimed 2.5 seconds. The lower-spec models offer reduced driving ranges and features. Luxury items such as an air filter that Tesla says can protect occupants from bioweapons and pollutants—plus available high-tech features such as Tesla’s Autopilot—seal the deal.
Another significant mechanical change is the newly standard 48-amp onboard charger that replaces the previous model’s 40-amp charger. Tesla says it enables quicker charging than before when connected to a 240-volt NEMA 14-50 power outlet or to a Tesla Wall Connector. We don’t have exact numbers for the new charger, but the old 40-amp system was estimated to deliver 29 miles of range per hour of charge, so expect more than 30 miles per hour for the new car. This change won’t affect the amount of time it takes to juice up with Tesla’s Supercharger network of quick chargers, and a $1500 upgrade that equips the car with a 72-amp charging system is available.
A few new features also join the Model S sedan’s options list. The Model X’s HEPA air-filtration system, which is said to be significantly more effective than conventional air filters at removing pollution and allergens from the air, is now included in the $3000 Premium Upgrades package, and two new interior trim choices—Figured Ash Wood and Dark Ash Wood—are also newly available.

The Viper is both all-American and a true exotic, with lots of curves and bulges in all the right places to let you know it means business. The long nose, bodacious body, and predatory stare give the Viper a menacing look, while its 645-hp, 8.4-liter V-10 can catapult it to 60 mph in about three seconds. For the ultimate track monster, check out the Viper ACR. With all kinds of aero aids, special tires by Kumho and carbon-ceramic brakes, Dodge says it is the fastest Viper on a racetrack.
Truly unique cars are few and far between these days. Every manufacturer is finding new ways to share components. And most models’ color combinations are limited to shades of silver with tones of beige or gray inside.
For now at least, the Viper carries on. Our newest test example wore a custom interior and paint designed by a guy named “Sneaky Pete,” or so says a badge on the dash. Mr. Pete chose a beautiful multidimensional silver paint and an all-red interior for this GTC model. But this car’s hierarchical place in the Viper pit is a little confusing. The GTC is above the base Viper SRT and the next-up GT and below the GTS model, but both the GTC and GT wear “GT” badges on their front fenders.
To add to the confusion, Sneaky, as friends call him, added the GTS interior package ($8500), bringing a full leather cockpit. Does this make the car a GTS? No, not really. The Time Attack Group 2.0 package ($8700) was also fitted. So this is a TA 2.0, right? Not quite. True TAs are built on the base SRT and come with cloth seats and a plastic dash. The Time Attack Groups (both the 1.0 and the winged 2.0, like this one) include the majority of the TA’s go-fast bits—suspension, wing/spoiler, splitters, brakes—but not all of them. Two notables missing are the SRT hood (six hood vents versus the GTS hood’s two) and the carbon-fiber X-brace (a really fancy strut-tower brace that saves 2.9 pounds over the standard brace), although both of those were added back into this car, for $500 and $2800. It wouldn’t be totally incorrect to call Pete’s car the nicest TA 2.0 out there.

Available as a coupe or convertible, the base engine is a 275-hp 2.0-liter turbo four; a 335-hp 3.6-liter V-6 and a 455-hp 6.2-liter V-8 are optional. All offer either a six-speed manual or optional eight-speed automatic. The interior, though, is tight and offers limited visibility. The V-6 and V-8 Camaros are 10Best winners for 2017.
Let’s cut right to the hyperbole: The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE is a rolling manifestation of Bruce Springsteen’s most celebratory lyrical fairy tale, the “all-American boy with a nose for trouble finds his way by means of a pushrod-V-8–powered muscle car with a weary but naturally beautiful girl in the passenger seat.”
Chevrolet is keeping the Camaro’s performance train rolling with a new 640-horsepower, supercharged 2017 Camaro ZL1. Based on the redesigned 2016 Camaro, which rides on a smaller, lighter and stiffer chassis, the ZL1 returns to the lineup weighing 200 pounds less than its model-years 2012 to 2015 predecessor. It’s also got 60 more horsepower, 80 more pounds-feet of torque and a new available ten-speed automatic transmission.
Chevrolet said the ZL1’s exterior package was honed with more than 100 hours of wind tunnel testing to develop the cooling and aerodynamic airflow. A larger lower grille opening increases airflow over the standard SS, while the upper grille wears a hollowed-out Chevrolet badge for additional airflow to the cooling systems. On the previous track-focused 2015 Camaro Z/28, Chevrolet found that the hollow badge lowered engine coolant and oil temperatures by 2 degrees Fahrenheit during extended track use.
A unique hood with a carbon fiber insert surrounding the heat extractor pulls hot air from the engine, while wider front fenders, a larger front splitter, special rocker panels and a wing-style rear spoiler are ZL1-specific and increase high-speed stability. The ZL1 rides on unique forged-aluminum 20-inch wheels with 285/35R20 Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires in the front and 350/30R20 tires in the rear.
