Parking bay size rethink as cars get bigger

19 March 2014

The UK government set to give councils power to set car parking space sizes as current minimum size is too small for modern cars
 
The minimum width of parking bays will be abolished by the Government because cars have become too big.  The size of parking spaces has remained the same since 1994 while car dimensions have continued to grow as extra safety features have been fitted.  The growing popularity of 4x4s and SUV crossovers have also contributed to the current bay sizes just not being big enough and drivers are increasingly being hit with unfair fines for parking over lines or having their cars damaged.  Currently, parking bays on roads can be a maximum length of 6.6 metres and minimum of 4.5 metres, and a maximum width of 2.7 metres and minimum of 1.8 metres.

New Renault Trafic unveiled

18 March 2014

Renault has released pictures and more details of its new third generation Trafic which goes on sale in the UK June 2014. Introduced in 1980 to replace the Estafette and followed by a second generation with styling way ahead of its time 13 years ago, Trafic has achieved more than 1.6m sales globally to date.  Specific details remain scant — Renault is in drip-feed mode for this launch — but at least we now have a better idea of what the new Trafic will look like in production form.  Model choice will remain the same as the current generation with two wheelbases and two roof heights, and it will be available as a van, crew van, minibus and platform cab.  Engine choice is a bit of a surprise, however, for a van of this size.  The current 2.0-litre diesels are being replaced by a selection of 1.6-litre units. Both single variable geometry turbo and bi-turbo diesels will be offered, with the latter claimed to have combined cycle fuel consumption of 39.2mpg.  Renault hasn't yet revealed power outputs, but Vauxhall has for its jointly developed new Vivaro: 90hp, 115hp, 120hp and 140hp.  Trafic production has been relocated from Alliance Partner Nissan’s Barcelona plant to Renault’s Sandouville facility in Normandy.  Formerly used for passenger car production and following an investment of €230m it has been transformed into Renault’s third centre of LCV production in France; the other two are in Maubeuge (Kangoo) and Batilly (Master).

New Vauxhall Vivaro details announced

18 March 2014

Vauxhall has issued pictures and released some technical details of the first final-build second generation Vivaro vans to roll off the new production line in Luton.  On sale from June 2014 the front-end is dominated by a huge grille and the massive high-set headlamp clusters feature LED daytime running lights.In normal trim the front bumper, grille, door mirrors and rear vertical mouldings are in black, but Sportive models have all body elements colour-coded, including the front bumper, side mouldings, vertical rear bumper corners and door mirrors whilst the main front grille gets chrome accents. The pictured van looks like its in Sportive trim, but with black door mirror housings.  As with current Vivaro, next generation models will be available with a choice of two wheelbases and roof heights.  Overall body length has increased by 216mm, taking the SWB to 4,998mm and stretching the LWB to 5,398mm.  Body variants include van, crew van, Combi, minibus and platform cab.  A bodybuilding centre for specialist models, such as platform cab-based conversions, was established at the plant in 2009 and its activities will be expanded with the new generation Vivaro.  It’s all change under the bonnet with the current 2.0-litre engines replaced by two new 1.6-litre diesels.  The single variable geometry turbo CDTi will be available at 90hp and 115hp while a BiTurbo — featuring sequential turbocharging and a twin-cooler system — will offer 120hp or 140hp.  Powered by two turbos working together, the latter powerplants are said to combine high performance with excellent fuel economy; combined cycle fuel consumption of 47.0mpg (preliminary data) is claimed.
