The AroundView® Monitor is a parking aid that provides views of your vehicle’s position in relation to surrounding objects. There are cameras located in the center of the front grille, on the outside mirrors and above the rear license plate. The AroundView® Monitor displays a combination of views on the touch screen display when activated with the ignition switch in the ON position. ● Bird’s-eye View shows a top view around your vehicle. ● Front-side View shows the area around and ahead of the passenger’s side front wheel. ● Front View shows the area directly in front of your vehicle. ● Rear View shows a picture of the area directly behind your rear bumper. Move the shift lever to Reverse or press the CAMERA button, while the ignition is ON to operate the Around View Monitor. Pressing the CAMERA button repeatedly cycles through the available views. The available views vary based on the position of the shift lever. Certain view combinations are displayed in a split-screen format. The front and rear views display the approximate distance between an object and your vehicle with colored lines. ● The RED line designates an object approximately 1.5 feet away. ● The YELLOW line designates an object is approximately 3 feet away. ● The first GREEN line designates an object is approximately 7 feet away. ● The second GREEN line designates an object is approximately 10 feet away. When the steering wheel is turned, predictive course lines are also displayed on the screen. These lines show the approximate path the vehicle will take. The predictive course lines move in conjunction with how far the steering wheel is turned. The sonar function alerts the driver when obstacles are near the bumper at speeds at or below approximately 5 miles-per-hour. When the shift lever is in Drive, obstacles are detected when in the Front View. Obstacles are detected in both the Front View and Rear View when the shift lever is in Reverse. When an obstacle is detected, a tone sounds and increases in frequency as the vehicle gets closer to the obstacle. When the obstacle is very close to the vehicle, the tone becomes continuous. An indicator is shown on the AroundView® Monitor at the corner of the vehicle that is near the obstacle. The indicator changes from a slowly blinking green indicator, to a faster blinking yellow indicator, then to a solid red indicator as the obstacle gets closer. The Moving Object Detection or (MOD) system operates when the AroundView® Monitor is active and can help inform the driver of moving objects surrounding the vehicle when driving out of parking structures, garages, or maneuvering in parking lots. A blue MOD icon is displayed on the screen when the MOD system is operative and a gray MOD icon is displayed when the MOD system is inoperative. When the shift lever is in the DRIVE position and the vehicle speed is below approximately 5 miles per hour, the MOD system detects moving objects in the Front-View. When the shift lever is in the REVERSE position and the vehicle speed is below approximately 5 MPH, the MOD system detects moving objects in the Rear-View. If the MOD system detects a moving object near the vehicle, a yellow frame appears on the display screen and a chime sounds intermittently. The yellow frame remains on the screen as long as the MOD system continues to detect moving objects. The MOD system will not operate if any door or the lift gate is open. Please see your Owner’s Manual for important safety information, system limitations, and additional operating and feature information."
This is the new Zotye T500, and it is surprisingly original for the infamous ripoff automaker. Sure there are some influences visible here and there, Skoda comes to mind, but overall it is almost as if the Zotye designers had a real idea of their own. And it didn’t turn out that bad… Handsome side profile with a high bonnet, a thick roof, black wheel arches, and a blacked-out D-pillar. That thick-roof design is something we are seeing a lot recently on new Chinese SUVs. New trend! The T500 will be positioned between the Zotye T300 and the Zotye T600. There really isn’t much space there. T300: 56.800 to 93.800 yuan. T600: 79.800 yuan to 149.800 yuan. But Zotye won’t be Zotye if they wouldn’t squeeze the T500 right in the middle, and I bet they will do a T400 too. So price for the T500 will likely start around 70.000 and end around 110.000 yuan. Engine? What do you think?!? No need to guess. The T500 will get the same 1.5 turbo as all the other Zotye’s, including, yes really, the T300 and the T600. Same engine; in all of ‘m. It has 156 hp and can be had with a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic. Horses go to the front wheels. The interior is nice with alcantara seats and a clean layout. 8.8 inch touch screen is on the small side for a new Zotye. Steering wheel is very sporty and the instrument panel is fully digital. Screen stands atop the center stack. Below the stack are the vents, and below that what seems to be another screen or touch screen, likely to control the air conditioning. The T500 will be equipped with a PM2.5 clean-air filter to keep the evil air pollution particles out of the cabin. The safety equipment is impressive; the top end models will get: body stability system, traction control, automatic braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and a night vision system. Chinese car makers are starting to take safety very serious. The new Zotye T500. An encouraging design direction, or too much of a Skoda..?

The 2018 Infiniti QX30 stands apart from the crowd based on its styling, but it’s also worth considering for its zippy handling.
The 2018 Infiniti QX30 is a pint-sized crossover with eye-catching styling and a remarkably Teutonic personality.
After bowing last year, the QX30 is unchanged this year. It’s available in base, Premium, Luxury, and Sport trim levels that share a 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine, a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic, and are available with either front- or all-wheel drive.
Cross-shop the QX30 against the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class and you’ll notice similarities behind the wheel. They’re based on the same, largely Mercedes-developed architecture, and the Infiniti has numerous switches and buttons inside plucked straight from Mercedes’ parts bin. Even the engine and transmission are Mercedes units, although the QX30 is assembled at a Nissan plant in England rather than alongside the GLA in Germany.
The QX30’s pint-sized dimensions reveal a predictably tight interior, but it’s well-finished with high-end materials on most trim levels and optional nappa leather upholstery that can be matched to matte wood trim. However, the front-wheel-drive-only base model’s manually adjusted cloth seats and black plastic interior bits may surprise buyers who associate Infiniti with more luxurious inner trappings. Then again, they run just north of $30,000, which undercuts most rivals, and all QX30s have a generous 4-year, 60,000-mile warranty.
Infiniti fits every version of the QX30 with seven airbags and a rearview camera. The automaker offers advanced safety tech like adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, and lane-departure warnings for an extra cost on higher trim levels, but the price can escalate quickly. The QX30 hasn’t yet been crash-tested by either federal or independent testers.
Dramatic pinched and tugged styling elevates the 2018 Infiniti QX30 over its rivals—if you like the look, that is.
We give the 2018 Infiniti QX30 props for its dramatic, swoopy roofline, even if its looks can be a bit quirky and polarizing.
Credit Infiniti for making the QX30 look nothing like the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class on which it’s based. Even with the two models lined up side-by-side, there are no shared cues. The GLA goes for the mini-’ute look, while the QX30 has more of a stylized hot hatch feel to it—even with its dark-finish fender flares.
By far the most notable visual cue outside is the QX30’s rearmost roof pillar, which cants rearward then forward to create the automaker’s now-signature Z-shape flair. It’s kitschy to the point of almost being overstyled, but we think the sharp design merits applause simply for standing out in a sea of increasingly homogeneous compact crossovers.
Front-wheel-drive versions sit a little lower to the ground than their all-wheel drive brethren and they feature a slightly cleaner exterior appearance. The front-drive-only QX30 Sport trim level has its own more aggressive front and rear fascias and rides on 19-inch wheels instead of 18-inchers found on other trims.
Inside, the QX30 is far more traditional with its vertical, well-organized center stack and a high-mounted infotainment screen. Most of its interior controls are Mercedes parts, and that’s just fine with us. Higher-grade versions of the QX30 feature padded and stitched surfaces for an upmarket look in line with prices that can escalate quickly with optional equipment.
