Biggest news are the new "S" models. With 496 horsepower from three electric motors, the e-tron S and e-tron Sportback S need to be over an inch-and-a-half wider to fit the motors, the result: 717 pound feet of torque. The front motor is normally dormant until extra power or traction are called for. The two rear motors operate independently, allowing amazing new levels of traction control and cornering assistance. The S will be offered in Premium Plus and Prestige trims. Tires and brakes carry over from regular e-tron models.

Top View Camera with Virtual 360° View, Audi adaptive cruise control with turn assist and Audi active lane assist with emergency assist are all now optional on Sportback Premium, and still standard on Premium Plus and Prestige.

Lesser (Premium Plus and Prestige) variants make due with a 522-horsepower variant.

Transmission are still a six-speed manual or an optional 6-speed automatic. Curb wight is only up slightly: 17 pounds.

Outback

2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness

2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness courtesy Subaru US Media Center

A new Wilderness trim level adds off-road specification to compete with Jeep's "Trail Rated" soft-roaders. A numerically higher axle ratio will help acceleration and a Low Speed Gradient Control can take advantage of the lower gearing when it detects steep inclines, similar to the psuedo low geared transfer case used in the Jeep Cherokee. A 9.5 inch ground clearance (almost an inch higher than standard) and a wider front and rear track (62/63 inches) are added as well. Angles of approach, breakover and departure are all larger. All terrain tires take the place of all seasons and a full-size spare is standard. The Wilderness is over an inch-and-a-half wider and almost an inch taller than other Outlander models. Fuel mileage takes a hit: 22 city/26 highway, compared to 23/30 for other 2.4 turbocharged Outback XT models.

Fog lights (LED) are now standard on all trims.

 
 
 
 

Blind Spot Monitor: In Other Words
  
Comments

Blind Spot Monitor

This system uses radar sensors in the rear fenders to detect objects in the vehicle's blind spots, slightly behind and to the sides in adjacent lanes. The system is designed to help prevent side-swipe accidents where a driver hits another car he doesn't see when changing lanes, or forces someone off the road, or loses control when he has to suddenly jerk back into his lane.

The systems typically turn their warning indicators on for a brief time when the vehicle is turned on, but don't operate until about 6 to 20 MPH. They are not designed to warn of non-moving objects, like guard rails. Some more sophisticated systems can extend their range to the rear if a trailer is connected.

The most confusing aspect of this feature is that almost every single car maker uses a different name for it. Below is a list of the names used by each maker, and in most cases a description of how their version works and when it was first offered. Sometimes blind spot monitoring goes by different names from the same maker or even on the same vehicle! Also, the names and the ways these functions operate may change from year to year as well.

These are not the same as blind spot camera systems, such as used to be in some Honda products and are now in premium Hyundai, Kia and Genesis vehicles.

Do not depend on the blind spot monitor; look over.

Acura

Blind Spot Information System (BSI) was introduced on the MDX for the 2010 model year. An indicator light comes on at the front of the driver's window on the interior where the side mirror attaches. The light blinks and a beeping occurs if the turn signal in the direction of the alert is activated.

Aston Martin

The system as it works on Fords only provides a static light on the face of the side view mirror, with no audible or vibrating warning or change in illumination if a turn signal is activated or a lane change begins to take place. On vehicles designed for towing, the system can be programmed through SYNC to take the trailer into account, lengthening the distance of the warning and disregarding the signals from the trailer.

Genesis

Blind Spot Detection and Lane Change Assist, has been present since the brand started operation in 2017.
