Guide to Automobile Acronyms

Ever wondered what those 2 or 3 letter abbreviations letters mean on the rear of your vehicle? Ever seen XLT, XT, GT in

the model description of a car sales advert and asked yourself why is a GT dearer than a standard vehicle? Manufacturers

have been using acronyms for the breakdown of their models for years now. Here is the list of the badge designations most

commonly found in today’s market used by manufacturers. Followed by their definitions that are commonly used by all

automobile manufacturers internationally. A particular badge can have various definitions from manufacturer to manufacturer

and are not standardized across the industry. The use of the badge acronyms help to differentiate and indicate the level

standard or excellence for that model or the amount of trim/extras the model has in this series.

35% = 35% VLT - Visible Light Transmission.

35% of light must come through the window,

or maximum of 65% may be blocked.

*more laws, penalties and other information on:

www.tinting-laws.com/new-zealand

With summer comes those awkward

moments of getting into your hot

vehicle. And if your vehicle is parked

without a sun shade on the windscreen

or has leather seats then you would be

well advised to have your windows tinted.

But what can and can’t you tint? In New

Zealand window tint is legal to use up to

a certain darkness level. This article will

give you a brief rundown of New Zealand

window tint laws and other regulations

concerning these vehicle modifications.

What is the legal window tint in New Zealand?

It has very specific laws, and in NZ you can

have the following window tint darkness:

Windshield: no tint allowed except an antiglare

band on top part.

Front side windows: minimum 35% VLT

allowed.

Back side windows: minimum 35% VLT

allowed on passenger vehicles, any

percentage for others.

Rear window: minimum 35% VLT allowed for

passenger vehicles, any percentage for others.

In New Zealand you can not legally apply

any tint percentage on front windshields.

However you can apply anti-glare bands

on top part of windscreens which (as law

defines) extend no further than bottom

of the sun visors when folded against the

windshield. Any print (as in letters or other

advertisements) applied must also not

extend further than 10cm from the top or

5cm from sides. If you decide to tint the

top portion of your windscreen it’s a good

rule of thumb to tint no more than 12cm in

total, with 10 being on the safe side. Overall

visible light transmittance on windshields

must not be less than 70%, but this is valid

only for factory-made tinted windows. New

Zealand law clearly states windshields may

have no overlay except as noted above.

Windows to the immediate left and right

side of driver, and side windows behind

the driver may have no less than 35%

VLT (Visible Light Transmission). Side

window behind driver (rear windows)

tint requirements of 35% only apply to

passenger vehicles: sedan, station wagon,

hatchback, sports car, and convertible

cars (Class MA vehicles). Trucks, vans,

SUVs, limousines, body transfer, or other

vehicle types can have any tint darkness

on windows behind driver’s seat. 35% VLT

means 65% of total light coming through

windows is blocked

On passenger (Class MA) vehicles rear

windshield must have above 35% VLT.

Multi-purpose vehicles (MPV) such as SUVs

and vans may have any tint darkness on

rear windshield. Important: if rear window is

tinted vehicle must have exterior rear view

mirrors on left and right side.

Tint reflection : New Zealand window tint

laws state that no window overlays may

have a mirrored effect sufficient to dazzle

other road users. Although the reflectance

level is not clearly defined we do not

recommend using window tint with any

light reflection.

Other regulations - As mentioned above,

ensure you have left and right rearview

mirrors in case you tint back windows.

Stickers, text, or other similar advertisements

may only be installed on top 100 mm of

windshield and other windows, and 50 mm

from other edges. Rear window stickers can

be fitted anywhere on non-Class MA vehicles.

NZ laws also allow installing window tint with

any darkness level on sunroofs. Furthermore

any scratches, discoloration, bubbling or

other defects in window tint which impair

a driver’s vision are not permitted. This

includes cracked windshields and windows

which must be repaired according to

Australian/New Zealand Standard 2366:1999

Windscreen Repairs.

Price: Mitsubishi ASX VRX, $40,090

Dimensions: Length, 4365mm;

width, 1810mm; height, 1640mm

Configuration: Four-cylinder, frontwheel-drive,

continuously variable automatic.

Performance: 0-100km/h, 9.2sec

Fuel usage: 7.9l/100km

have performance and handling ability

which is far in excess of its purpose.

In terms of fuel use, Mitsubishi has done

well to lean out the engine. As I remarked

previously, it has been around for some

time, but it is a fuel miser and carries a

7.9-litre per 100km (36mpg) combined

cycle claim.

The fuel usage readout was constantly

listing at around 8.4l/100km (33mpg)

during my time with the test car, and I can

report a 5l/100km (56mpg) instantaneous

figure sitting at a steady 100km/h. At that

speed the engine is working over at a lazy

1750rpm in the tallest part of the gearing.

In VRX specification, the ASX gets a

healthy level of specification including full

leather trim with heated front seats and

keyless entry and ignition. There are also

many additions for safety and infotainment.

I was a little disappointed when I took

the ASX back, I knew that was my last

evaluation car for the decade, and I’m

convinced it helped in the recovery of my

back muscles. Now it’s back to battling

the low seat position in the Kiddie-family

Toyota, I’m hoping my back will last out

until the scheduled drive I have in the new

year for the upgraded Outlander Sport.

Changes are a-coming in 2020!

It is 2020! The year that will bring the ‘hindsight’ jokes out left right and centre. New ESP rules to the

vehicle market and All Blacks post Steve Hansen. For 2020Best Motorbuys has a lot of new things on

offer to look forward to that will be coming up in our magazine in 2020. Read on for the list below.

Motorbikes, Boating & Marine,

Leisure, 4WD!

Competition time – prizes to be won!

As well as our regular features

As we say on our front page – we list

anything with a motor; and this year

we are taking that literally! In 2020 on

a regular basis we will be featuring new

sections for those vehicles with motors

that do not feature in our magazine on

a weekly basis. Motorcycles – new and

used as well as accessories. Where we

will feature adverts, stories and editorial

content and advertise accessory providers.

Same goes with boating and marine. From

jet boats to jet skis to runabouts and the

products you need when on the water.

Sports and leisure – caravans, camper

vans, trailers. All those items to help you

get out and enjoy what NZ has to offer.

4WD – the tracks to go to with your 4WD.

The accessories you need to fit out your

4WD and how to prepare for your off road

adventures. Starting at the end of January.

Nothing like winning a competition and

getting to take home a prize – and the

team at BMB will be hooking you up in

2020. This year we will be launching

weekly and monthly prize contests

through the magazine and Facebook

pages. Everything from hot laps to

vouchers to much, much more!. Stay tuned

on both the magazine and Facebook

pages for more! Launching in February!

Holden Acadia LTZ-V

Holden’s Acadia didn’t win the 2019 New

Zealand Motoring Writers’ Guild car of the

year award. That trophy went to Jaguar’s

fully electric I-Pace.

Nevertheless, Holden New Zealand and

General Motors should be buoyed that its

big seven-seat sport utility vehicle was

a finalist. It went up against some pretty

tough competition – three electric cars and

other notables.

Collectively, I don’t know where Acadia

finished in the standings but it certainly

scored well in my own personal tally of

points for the COTY.

The big United States built SUV is doesn’t

have a lot of competition here, sure

Toyota’s Highlander and Jeep Grand

Cherokee are well established but the

Acadia has presence, it is bold and captures

imagination with its styling that is just a

little out of the mainstream.

The Acadia comes out of the GMC stable,

GMC is an off-shoot of the giant General

Motors conglomerate that focuses primarily

on trucks and pick-ups. However, the

Acadia distances itself from the ute market,

it is built on a sophisticated monocoque

floorpan with fully independent suspension.

Under the bonnet sits a 3.6-litre V6 petrol

engine which is rated at 231kW and 367Nm,

these healthy outputs are realised tall in

the rev band at 6600rpm and 5000rpm

respectively. If you think these figures look

familiar, it’s pretty much the same power

plant that is fitted to the range-topping

ZB-series Commodore. The Acadia also

gets the same transmission, it’s a ninespeed

unit that is characterised by smooth

shifts and ratios which ease the load on the

engine so that respectable fuel economy

can be gleaned.

Because of its size, and weight (2032kg),

the Acadia needs as much benefit in this

department as it can get. Holden rate

it with a 9.3-litre per 100km (30mpg)

combined cycle rating. By my reckoning

that’s achievable, the test car was

constantly listing around 10.8l/100km

(26mpg), taking into consideration I did a

lot of around the city driving which is never

conducive to good economy results.

On the highway the engine lopes over

gently at 1500rpm at 100km/h in top gear,

using fuel at an instantaneous rate of

7.8l/100km (36mpg).

The Acadia is also a useful off-the-seal

traveller. It lands in both two-wheel-drive

and four-wheel-drive variants. The test car

was the top spec – LTZ-V, and although

the driveline won’t get to places a low ratio

set-up will take you, the mechanicals are

perfect for low grip situations such as the

skifield access road, tackling the tracks

leading into those high country lakes, or

taking the boat to the slipway. For the

record, the Acadia has a 2000kg tow rating

and a 203mm ground clearance figure.

It also travels with compliant suspension

travel. Unlike US vehicles of the past which

have been quite soft in the suspension,

the Acadia’s spring and damper rates are

definitely biased towards moderate firming,

yet comfort isn’t compromised.

Pushed into a corner there is just enough

steering feel thanks to beautiful Continental

sport tyres, and they are big at 235/55 x

20in. There is a lot of rubber on the road

and that promotes a secure feeling of

attachment.

Power out of a corner is vivid. The quadcamshaft

engine is a howler, it works

through the rev band freely but you don’t

have to have it singing to the red line to get

performance, the torque curve is just broad

enough so that it utilises the mid-range.

However, if you like to have it breathing

freely for a highway overtake for example,

it hunts to the red line willingly, there was

never a point where I thought the wrong

gear was selected, the way it arranges

those nine ratios is very clever. On the

subject of performance, the Acadia buyer

Price: Holden Acadia LTZ-V, $71,990

Dimensions: Length, 4979mm;

width, 1916mm; height, 1762mm

Configuration: V6, four-wheel-drive,

3649cc, 231kW, 367Nm, nine-speed

automatic.

Performance: 0-100km/h, 7.8sec

Fuel usage: 9.3l/100km

can expect a standstill to 100km/h time of

around 7.8sec.

As mentioned, the Acadia lands here in

three specification levels, each with the

option of four-wheel-drive. The entrylevel

model lands at $49,990, while the

test car with its high grade trim and

4WD sits at $71,990. For that money it is

comprehensively equipped – and you’d

expect nothing less. It is very American in

the way it is trimmed and it does get all the

latest safety technology that comes out of

the General Motors’ stable.

The Acadia makes no pretense that it is

genuinely American, its styling is designed

to capture attention, and the luxury feel

inside takes me back to the best vehicles

that have come out of the States in terms

of build quality and comfort.

However, the Acadia also gets the benefit

of the down under input. Prior to its release

here it was tested vigorously across the

Tasman for our market. That development

shows, it is an involving, spirited car that

feels very good to be in.

The Acadia won’t be for everyone, but for

those who want the benefit of huge interior

space and strong engine performance, it’s

there in a part of market where buyers

don’t have comprehensive choice.
