The best engines of 2017

Like every year, also in this year was the 19th year of prestigious inquiry Engine of the year, in which  Ferrari took the gold. But it isn’t any surprise because they took the price of the best engine last year too. However, other known names scrapped because of front places, and hybrid engines from BMW and Honda mixed up with cards. Vice-versa, you nearly can’t find diesel engines in results.

Jury, which judge the engines was consisted of 58 journalists of all the world. And the trend is clear. While in the past the front bars have been rolling down economical diesels, followed by hybrids and then small-volume turbocharged aggregates, now engines come to the foreground, which are only for the chosen ones. This is especially true of the main category where the powerful, supercharged 3.9-liter 8-cylinder from the sinful precious Ferrari 488 GTB has been placed for the second time.

It is not for everyone

As we have mentioned above, dominant attenuation of diesel engines have caused growth of expensive and strong engines, like in 488. Ferrari’s overcrowded engine was once again crowned with success. The Maranella carmaker confirmed it as the first milestone in the sports engine class of the year and also in its volume category from three to four liters. So the springing stallion has a hetrik. He added gold even in the “New Motor of the Year” class last year, but he couldn’t have been here this time. On the other side we can also find the engine, which scored last year. And again from the most exclusive class – SuperSports class. It is a flat, supercharged, three-liter 6-cylinder Porsche 911 with variable turbocharger geometry. We can even certainly say, that he improved his position. So the Porche Turbo doesn’t hurt either.

The Tricycle was closed by a hybrid sports car from Munich’s BMW brand called i8. His hybrid engine was placed just behind the Porsche 911 with a total of 151 points. However, against Ferrari’s winning engine, it loses up to 100 points. This lead points up to dominance of overcrowded Italian engines.

In the top ten was Audi engines, specifically the 2.5-liter 5-cylinder, Ford EcoBoost engine from Ford, which can be found in the new Ford Fiesta, Focus and Mondeo models. On the 6th place was an electric motor from a well known company Tesla, under the guidance of visionary Elon Muska, and immediately followed by a French 1.2 liter PSA Peugeot – Citroen.

Ecology was also important

You can’t easy find these ecological cars for low prices. “The green engine of the year” class was taken by Model S of Tesla, before the plug-in Hybrid SuperSport BMW i8 and the clean electric car Chevrolet Bolt. A pair of engines from BMW, specifically the electric and hybrid engine from the model series i3, obtained around 80 points. There was no shame nor for Volvo, and for their hybrid 2-liter engine, which also drives the XC90 or V90 models. Tesla still wins, and the fact is, that point difference between Tesla and Volvo is 142 points. And this feature just confirm the dominance of Tesla.

New engine of the year

Strong engines also dominated the most exciting class, such as the “New Engine of the Year”. Here is hybrid the winner, but in combination with the 3.5-liter 6-cylinder and three electric engines for the amazing Honda NSX coupe. The new 4-cylinder diesel 220d in the Mercedese-Benz E class at least in any case defends the middle class. It ended up among the news on the second bar. By the way, this is the only diesel engine in statistics. You can’t find others. And the third is again honest 6-cylinder 2.9 bi-turbo for the sharp Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio Verde.

Totally top engines

Even in the “Sports Motor of the Year” class, we have no chance of finding anything popular. Here reigns the Ferrari 488 GTB and behind it the atmospheric 8-cylinder 4.0 V8 for sharp versions of Porsche 911 GTR, GT3 RS and R. Now you are asking, what is here for “basic” people? So we can find the answer to this question among the winners of smaller volume classes. But most of them are old well-known. In a one-liter class the gold is for 1.0 EcoBoost 3-cylinder from Ford and the 1.4-liter 3-cylinder 1.2-liter PureTech from PSA.

One level higher, among the engines with capacity between 1.4 and 1.8 liters, was again rewarded the premium brand – BMW with its 1.5-liter 3-cylinder coupled with an electric motor in superSports8. However, the most people should for this one at least 30 years. In our chart wasn’t mentioned the name of favorite German brand- Volkswagen. Fotŕ this brand only the eyes were crying because the new 4-cylinder 1.5 TSI did not move to more than fourth place. But is at last praiseworthy. At least they have something to improve to the next year’s Engine of the Year, where he will attack the hetrik a red horse from Italy.

Short-term insurance

Mandatory contractual insurance is foundation, but that doesn’t pay you everything. This is why is convenient to think about supplementary insurance. Fortunately we live in time, where you don’t have to pay for expensive insurance, that you will never use. Quite the reverse. You can pick up the insurance which you want.

Short-term for short

What is short-term insurance? Well, aswe know from the name, it is intended for a short time. It depends on insurance company, but in some of these companies it is around one month. You ask why short-term rather than year-long? The answer is simple. You save. Imagine that you are a less experienced driver and you rarely drive. In that case will be enough for you to have mandatory contractual insurance and some supplementary insurance. But if you decide to go on holiday in the summer or drive in winter, then the short-term insurance is just the job. You will take the insurance as you want and only for a certain period. So why pay for months, which you will not drive? This way you can choose insurance, for exapmle for your holiday, and also reinsure you against vandalism, natural disasters or wild animals. Also useful is insurance against fire, explosion, road damage or damage of cables, hoses and isolation by rodent.

Risk winter

The most difficult are winter months. It is best time for supplementary short-term insurance. The risk of damage caused by snow, ice, high animals or by foreign cause is high. Everywhere is slippery, an results of this is an increase of minor accidents and damage events. And if you belong to the drivers who use the car especially in winter, you will ask yourself, why pay unnecessary expensive year-long supplementary insurance? You can have a short-term emergency insurance from 25 pounds per month. You will ensure supplemenraty insurance in only risk months and you will save. Why to pay for garage unnecessarily when you don’t drive with the car? Pay for insurance only when you really need it.

Broken paint…

If someone breaks a paint on the door or fender, the damage is covered by the compulsory insurance of the vehicle that has caused you damage. And no matter who was driving the vehicle. It is important to reach the offender or at least know, who he is. For the indentification is good to know at least his or her licence numer. According to that, you will find out in which insurance company the car is insured. A central register on the web allows to find an insurance company through the licence number of the vehicle. And the last thing: in such a damaging event, never forget to call the police.

Who is the offender?

If the culprit don’t come to prove his identity after an accident, you can still find him or her. And the registration number is enough. Do you know, how to find out an owner of a car through licence number? Of course, you can’t find it by yoursefl. The police register isn’t available for public, for obvious reasons. However, you can still claim the damage caused by the compulsory insurance of offender. You just have to know his licence number. As we already mentioned, you can find his insurance company in the register on the web. But only police can find a culprit through licence number. This is why is important to call the police immediately after an incident. The police has access to all registered vehicles in England. They can detect through the transmitter or terminal not only the name or address of the home, but also the telephone contact. Ideal is to provide to police contacts of witnesses. The police can complete their testimony for record of city or industrial cameras, from the place of an accident.

Turn to the insurance company

The other way, how to find a culprit through licence number is to go to insurance company where is insured the vehicle of the culprit. That is what you can find on the web. It is necessary to inform about the damage in the insurance company of culprit with licence number and other data. Get them know that event is investigated by police. If you follow these steps and the police clearly identify the culprit, your chance to get the compensation is high.

What to do if the culprit is unknown?

If case that the culprit is unknowen or uninsured and you have the police record, you don’t have to pay damages by yourself. The CPA is compulsory to pay you damage from a reserve fund in case of unknown offender. This also aplies on the people who don’t have an insurance to their car. The CPA reclaim their money back from these people, because they don’t accomplish their lawful obligation- contract mandatory contractual insurance of their vehicle.

Vehicle accident from abroad …

If the car with foreign vehicle licence number wreck my car, the situaction is slightly more complicated. Through vehicle licence number you can’t find an owner of the vehicle nor his insurance company. You need this information if you want to claim damages, because each insurance company has a so-called liquidation representative for England. Applies the same rule as in England: call the police and have a record of an accident with introduction of a foreign vehicle licence number. Then ask the CPA for assistance with finding the accident offender. With this information, you can then contact a specific liquidation agent with a claim for damages.

Tipes of transportation which help you to start your business

In many cases you don’t realize, how some companies are doing a lot of important things, whose business is to meet the needs of their customers. Try to look on shipping. In the past you couldn’t even imagine the fact, that you can go from one side of the world to another in one day. This apply on transportation of things as well. These days there are a lot of ways of shipping. However, the right choice of transportation can ever start your business.

Fastest way through the air

This doesn’t apply only on person transport. Even industry, trading and the growth of globalization can not even imagine it without the transport and transport services of some companies. Industrial revolution cause its development and the expansion of trade at world level. In this case, for example, safe air transportation is doing really well. It is the fastest way of transportation and this fact is invincible advantage for business. Airlines can transport large quantities of goods in very short time over long distances. This kind of shipping is really advantageous at great distances and especially in the transcontinental business. Transportation between continents is simpler and faster, thanks to air transport.

The most available version for everyone

The transport of goods is still practiced on roadways, which are able to ensure relocation, loading and unloading of goods from one place to another, just like aviation. The difference is in speed and distance. Nowadays the most popular truck transport uses public communications where they have to adapt their speed to certain rules. Companies have thoroughly planned this system and they know, which road takes them a lot of time and which not. On our terms, it’s still a very good way that you don‘t have trouble using it anywhere. On our portal www.getshipment.com you will find the whole web of shippers, who doesn’t have problems to transport cars, furniture, boxes or even animals. Attractive is also price, that is much lower then air transport. You will also appreciate acessibility. Because you can transport cargo wherever. This is why this possibility is used mainly by entepreneurs and manufacturers which makes truck transport one of the most used transports in England. In the past it was mainly train transport, nowdays the throne was taken by shippers with trucks.

Transport of goods and products through watercourses

Malcolm McLean took care of its expansion and transition to today’s container form. He decided to remove the container from a truck trailer and load it on the boat. Later, his business started with the purchased old shipping company, and even for this purpose he re-launched tankers from the war. The use of marine transport is payable to companies that cooperate at the transnational level and need to secure the disposal of a huge amount of goods. Imagine that you load hundreds of tracks on only one ship. This is the great advantage which most supports the globalization and international trade. This type of transport is only beneficial to multinationals and more complex businesses, with large turnovers. Because only rent of containers is a few hundred pounds. Transportation will be even more expensive. The ability to transport a large amount of cargo surpass the price. So goods are transported from America or China wide-spread. So if you are planning to expand to a foreign market, container shipping will probably be the most advantageous for you.

With such a truck would be a joy to ride

The fact that the trucker’s work is not easy at all, we already know. Hundred of kilometers, driving during the day, during the night and in every wheather. All of this the trucker have to handle with. And to be sincere, sleeping in a cabin truck is not really a luxury. Volvo is trying to change this fact. They introduced a new model of handler in their offer, from which the driver won‘t want to come out and rest in it will be a balm not only for the body but also for the soul.

New Volvo!

New luxury VNL Volvo tractors have been introduced in America and are the successors of old models that have been on the market since 2002. The company didn‘t concentrate on fleet renewal, so all she did was improve old models to keep pace with time. But this could not work indefinitely. The competition is huge nowadays and Volvo is gradually lagging behind. The only thing the company had to do was to bend and bring new models.

Changes from basics …

And here the car maker really cared. In order to catch up with the competition, she literally dug the whole cabin. The goal was to get to the hard-working truckers the best of comfort, not only during the ride but also during the rest. So here we have a VNL flagship. During the ride it can offer improvements that will improve the driver’s comfort. For example, such a normally pillar management is not at all ordinary, but “miraculous”. It can be set in multiple axes so that everyone can adjust the steering wheel to the position that suits it most.

Comfort on the first place

The steering wheel is equipped with the maximum number of control buttons to keep them for a driver on hand and doesn‘t have to distract while driving by searching for the right button somewhere on the dashboard. If the crew wants to refresh themselves with drinks, they have two beverage holders. These can be moved from side to side. The small object storage was moved directly onto the dashboard. Drivers is more likely to store objects higher and in sight. The instrument panel is complete with a large display to show important information. We can find the basic data on the classic analogue indicators.

And now to the main one. What does the hotel on wheels offers? At the rear of the cabin is everything the truck driver needs for a comfortable rest. Although it may seem like the space is a bit slim, it only seems like that. There are two beds one above the other. On the top bed you can scrape off thanks to the telescopic ladder. Even on the top bed is enough place for a person 186 centimeters high, which can sit there well without  uncomfortable feel under the roof. Just take the cold beer from the fridge, warm up your food in the microwave and enjoy your footbal on the TV directly in the warmth and comfort of the cabin.

A truck that everyone wants

From the comfort of the bed, the driver can control the air conditioning, ventilation and locking of the vehicle thanks to the panel mounted on the wall. Fortunately, there are plenty of USB ports on the walls, and there is an auto-socket. Under the hood is a D13 engine with different power ratings. The most powerful tractor variant will be the Cummins X15 engine with a performance of 572 hp. The only downside is that this fantastic machine isn‘t for Europe. Only the Americans can enjoy the hotel on the wheels. However, this may be changed over time.

Do you ever hear about crew insurance?

The fact, that car transport is one of the most used but also the most dangerous type of transpor is probably well known. And when danger lie on every kilometer, is better to consider something more than only mandatory contractual insurance. So reach for supplementary insurance for example for crew  insurance. Don’t you hear about it yet?

Only mandatory contractual insurance?

If you think that only mandatory contractual insurance will be enough, we won’t please you. Nowdays the mandatory contractual insurance isn’t enough. Mandatory contractual insurance is base, that everyone has to have. However, this base doesn‘t be enough for everything in case of an accident. True is that this insurance can save your money and help you with lot of things. But in case that you want for you and for your property good insurance you should pay for more expensive insurance or supplementary insurance. These include, for example, supplementary crew insurance.

Driver is responsible

When you drive a car, you take several responsibilities on yourself. Because it is up to you how do you handle with your vehicle and during the ride you take responsibility not only for your self but also for fellow travelers, passers-by or drivers on opposite direstion. Because the car can also be characterized as a 1.5 ton gun, capable of spinning up to several hundred kilometers. Therefore you should know, that the driver is responsible for the crew. You should drive wisely and care about rules and the right drive fundamentals.  And never, never drive when you are drunk or have other drugs. Before the ride always remind yourself, that security of crew is during the ride in your hands.

Accident insurance

Dream of every driver is as much kilometers without an accident as possible. Though, it isn’t always possible. Danger is everywhere. Glare ice, slide on the water road, car collision or collision with wild animal and so on, and so on. Nightmare of every driver. And just for these cases, you should think, besides PZP, about closing an accident insurance, which in case of an accident or death, will be able to pay you or your loved ones a claim of up to 6,000 pounds and be valid throughout Europe. If something happen to you after an accident and you will suffer mortal or permanent concequences, accident insurance can help you and overcome the difficult period after the accident. Not only you will appreciate this kind of help, but also your loved ones.

Crew insurance

However, the accident insurance may not only apply to the driver of the vehicle. Vice versa. Literally the whole crew can be insured. Isn’t is great? Every seat in your car can be insured. So after an accident or injury won’t be cared only about you but also about other crew members. But the most important thing. Because as we mentioned above, for crew is responsible mainly the driver. So when you decide to go on holiday, consider the possivility and ensure not  only yourself but also other members of the crew. So you can all be insured in case of danger. Because a man never knows, what is on the roads.

Moral duty

We can say, that reparation of injured crew is just a moral duty. Especially if it’s a person you know and belong to your loved ones. And even if you don‘t cause an accident, you can have a compunctions if a passenger is suffering in the hospital and you can’t do anything. This is why you should think of crew insurance before every trip or holiday. An accident can ruin the whole holiday and change your whole life. And if you belong to those who believe that it is safe to drive, we will probably get you wrong. There are many cases, where the disaster is waiting at you last kilometers of your journey. You are getting back from your vacation and the other car cas smash into you at your last kilometers. But if you don’t forget abou insurance for you and your crew, an accident insurance will take care of the injured passangers of the crew and will pay the damages for the accident that happened in your car. And even if you were not responsible for the damage or accident, believe that for any injury to your passengers you will be sorry. With seat insurance, you will feel that you have made the most you can. And after a possible accident, compensation will help injured thanks to your decision to insure not only you and your car, but also the crew.

Insurance equipment

Mentioned seat accident insurance you can find on onlia.com insurance webpage. Thanks to simple navigation and a simple interface the insurance equipment will take you only a few minutes. But it can save several hours of equipping and hope for a peaceful life even after an accident with fatal consequences.
