2021 Volkswagen Atlas shrugged off fuel economy

Atlas the Titan was condemned by Zeus to carry the weight of the heavens on his shoulders. Atlas the SUV carries the weight of families in its spacious confines, but is condemned by poor fuel economy.  

Updated for 2021 with a rugged Basecamp appearance package, a bolder design, and a turbo-4 now available with all-wheel drive, the Volkswagen Atlas three-row crossover SUV seats up to seven people and plenty of gear.

2021 Mazda CX-30

Mazda’s small but robust lineup reaches higher into the premium segment this year with a new Carbon Edition and fully loaded Signature trims on select models. There are no new models for 2021, but some of the smaller Mazdas have some of the largest changes. 

The CX-3 small crossover marches on despite the CX-30, and a turbocharged engine finally returns to the 2021 Mazda 3 compact sedan and hatchback. The MX-5 Miata remains the same.

2021 Subaru Forester SUV

The best-selling Subaru model already had safety at the forefront, with standard all-wheel drive, automatic emergency braking, active lane control, and adaptive cruise control. For 2021, Subaru adds adaptive LED headlights and automatic high beams to increase visibility at night, and a rear seat belt reminder so all passengers are buckled in or subjected to chimes and message alerts. Competitors such as the 2021 Toyota RAV4 and 2021 Honda CR-V offer similar safety suites.

The 2021 Lexus LX 570 full-size SUV available with three rows gets minor updates to the Sport package, compared to last year, but a major upgrade with the return of the limited edition Inspiration Series

Last offered for 2019, the LX 570 Inspiration Series adds black exterior parts and black leather inside.

The large-but-luxe SUV based on the Toyota Land Cruiser has off-road capability and a truck-like 383-horsepower 5.7-liter V-8 with an 8-speed automatic in four-wheel drive that includes an electronic locking center differential. Available with a third row that can carry up to seven passengers, the truck-based 2021 LX 570 can tow up to 7,000 pounds on 20-inch wheels.

The well-equipped luxe truck comes with standard safety features such as automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitors, a surround-view camera system; convenience features include leather upholstery and wood trim, heated and cooled front seats, and a 12.3-inch infotainment system with Amazon Alexa compatibility. Sorry, Apple and Android users, Lexus isn’t having it.

VisionAir participants don’t even need to be pilots themselves. Cirrus Aircraft

Cirrus Aircraft’s new VisionAir program plans to make the ownership of a new single-engine Vision Jet a complete turnkey operation designed especially for people who might be new to owning a turbine aircraft, or might not even be pilots. But VisionAir is more than simply covering the tricky parts of aircraft ownership like maintenance and hangar issues. With VisionAir, Cirrus Aircraft promises to take care of all the details, from preparing the aircraft for flight to rolling out the red carpet for passengers and even stocking the owner’s favorite refreshments onboard. Cirrus says it delivered its 200th Vision Jet last month.

The Phenom 300MED is the latest mission-specific iteration of the 300 series. Embraer Executive Jets

In a week of updates for the company, Embraer unveiled a medevac version of the Phenom 300 series—aptly called the Phenom 300MED—on August 4, and it presented its second-quarter financial results on August 5.

Embraer talked to Flying about the proposed medevac model during our flight test of the newest 300E back in March—and the latest announcement brings this effort to fruition. The version had Embraer joining forces with umlaut and Aerolite to develop a series of configurations that allow for use of one or two stretchers, as well as the capability to carry an incubator and additional medical equipment on board. The custom, hospital-grade interior fittings will be installed by Embraer’s Services & Support group. With an aircraft pressurization level that features a 6,600-ft maximum cabin altitude, the 300 series looks to be well-positioned to keep patients more comfortable. The STC will be available for existing Phenom 300s as well.

Daher’s HomeSafe uses an iteration of Garmin’s Autoland system. Daher/Airborne Films

French aircraft maker Daher says new TBM 940s rolling off the assembly line in Tarbes, France, will now be equipped with the HomeSafe system, which allows the aircraft to automatically locate a suitable airport and conduct an instrument approach to a safe landing should the pilot become incapacitated. The new HomeSafe system—that simultaneously received both FAA and EASA certification last week—is an iteration of Garmin’s Autoland emergency landing system. The company says new 940s already delivered this year will be upgraded at TBM service centers. HomeSafe is also available as a retrofit to earlier 940 aircraft at a cost of $85,000.

Daher says, “The system is activated manually by an easily recognizable orange button atop the cockpit instrument panel, or semi-automatically if the Emergency Descent Mode has been engaged. The [HomeSafe] software integrates weather and terrain information to select the best airport for landing taking into account aircraft fuel range and runway length. During the landing rollout, HomeSafe will simultaneously activate the landing gear and brakes and shut down the engine.”

2020 Audi E-Tron Sportback

The 2020 Audi E-Tron Sportback electric crossover SUV earned a Top Safety Pick+ for acing all crash tests and having advanced safety features that rated “Superior,” the IIHS announced Monday. 

New for 2020, the E-Tron Sportback is as much wagon as SUV, though Audi and other German automakers are keen on calling such mashups “four-door coupes.”

Based on the Audi E-Tron SUV launched for 2019 with a 248-mile range, the E-Tron Sportback follows in the safety footsteps of the SUV with “Good” scores on all six crash tests and for its standard LED headlights. The IIHS deemed the vehicles similar enough to base the crash-test ratings on the 2019 E-Tron SUV in all-wheel drive and the Premium Plus trim. 

The driver-assist technology ranks “Superior” based on its automatic emergency braking system that comes standard. Called “Audi Pre Sense Front,” the system on the E-Tron can avoid a crash with another vehicle or a pedestrian at 25 mph, and can slow to nearly a halt at 12 mph. 

The 2019 E-Tron SUV earned similar ratings, as well as a five-star crash test rating from the NHTSA, earning it a rare, perfect 10 in our safety scorecard. (Read more about how we rate cars.) We expect the 2020 E-Tron Sportback to rate as high once it has been tested by the NHTSA. 

The 2020 E-Tron Sportback joins the Tesla Model 3 as the only electric vehicles to earn the TSP+ distinction for 2020. The Audi A6 sedan and wagon are Audi’s other 2020 models with a TSP+ award.

2021 Porsche 911 Turbo

The new 911 Turbo will hit 198 mph on a long enough runway in a straight line, but it’s the Turbo’s ability to take a corner that captivates us more. The 911 Turbo rides on front 255/35R20 front tires and 315/30R21 rear tires, all of which are 10 millimeters wider than the outgoing model’s shoes. All-wheel drive is standard on the 911 Turbo, and so is all-wheel steering.

The front rotors are Thanksgiving-sized 16-inch plates that are nearly 1.5 inches thick. The rear rotors aren’t far behind: 15 inches in diameter and 1.2 inches thick. Carbon ceramic stoppers are an option with 10-piston front calipers.

Gulfstream built more than 600 G550s since the model’s first announcement 20 years ago. Pixabay

Mark Burns said “The G550 set the standard for subsequent aircraft and the industry.” That’s not simply Burns’ opinion as Gulfstream’s president. The popular G550 in 2003 earned the aircraft’s development team the coveted Robert J. Collier Trophy, awarded annually “for the greatest achievement in aeronautics or astronautics in America, with respect to improving the performance, efficiency, and safety of air or space vehicles, the value of which has been thoroughly demonstrated by actual use during the preceding year.”

The aerospace giant last week announced it had sold the final position of the G550 aircraft that’s slated for delivery in 2021. Gulfstream has to date delivered more than 600 copies of the aircraft. First announced in 2000, the G550 entered service in 2003 as the launch platform for the transformational Gulfstream PlaneView flight deck. Its range and high-altitude capabilities earned the aircraft more than 55 speed records. The G550 is capable of cruise speeds of Mach 0.90.

Burns was quick to point out that, “While manufacturing of the G550 will end, our industry-leading support of the aircraft will continue. With more than 30 company-owned and factory-authorized service centers on five continents as well as the ability to produce and procure parts, we are well-prepared to continue offering G550 owners the highest level of support.”

2021 Mini Countryman

Mini continues to charm for the 2021 model year. The British brand owned by BMW returns a 6-speed manual transmission to its small lineup, further enhancing its reputation for quirky urban cars that are fun to drive but offer limited practicality. 

From the Union Jack taillights and rear barn doors to the circular design features adorning the inside and outside, Mini stands out amid a sea of homogeneous small crossovers and vanishing compact cars and hatchbacks.
