AutoComplete for July 7, 2016: A faster NSX and a better PathfinderLG and VW are partnering up to make houses and cars smarter. Plus, robotic gloves and a quick rundown of the best cars and SUVs in the world.
Welcome to road show's out of complete I'm Tim Stevens, today is Thursday July 7th and here's what's making news. Nissan has unveiled a host of updates for it's 2017 Pathfinder cross over. The exterior's been freshened up while the interior boasts a new center console design beneath a revised Eight inches standard touchscreen infotainment system. Its 3.5 liter V6 now features direct injection, boosting output to 284 horsepower. It's tow rating is also up from 5,000 pounds to 6,000. Accura is heading to the races with its NSX G23 Racecar, and the automaker just released its first set of official images. Powered by a twin turbo V6 but lacking the road car's hybrid system The XS GT 3 is an absolute stunner in its bear carbon fiber finish. Sadly, that will not be an option for the production model. But maybe that'll change when the Type R comes around. Volkswagen might be getting raked over the coals here in the US, but in Germany it might have been handed a golden ticket. It's likely that the German government will forego heavy fines on Volkswagen for it's diesel malfusions in favor of promoting an efficient recall schedule and finishing up it's criminal investigations. This could save the company billions but not every member of the German government agrees with given Volkswagen a pass. If you've been living under a rock you might have missed the fact that there is a new Ghostbusters movie coming out in just eight days. The head of it's debut, Carfection's Drew Stearne took a spin in the reimagined Ecto-1, this time based on a 1984 Cadillac Fleetwood. He even brought along his Ghostbusters outfit.
