► New Maserati GranTurismo for 2020 ► Brand-new platform shared with other models ► V8 range-topper, hybrid capability may featureThe recent refresh of Maser’s long-running GranTurismo flagship (pictured below) and its sister GranCabrio might seem like an update for update’s sake, but it’s simply a holding pattern.
With sales of the VW Golf topping 33 million since its launch in 1974 – equating to a frankly unbelievable new car every 40 seconds – it’s Europe’s best-selling model by quite a margin, and originally found fans and fame thanks to the ever-popular GTI hot hatch. Now deep into its seventh generation, a major range update in early 2017 ushered in some new kit and engine options, including the car we’re driving here.
Do you find when driving to work the traffic lights are always against you? That could soon be a thing of the past thanks to new technology that will allow your car to ‘talk’, not only to other cars – known as car-to-car communication - but also to road infrastructure using so-called car-to-X. Set to be introduced to new cars from 2019, this means your car will be able to more effectively guide you on a route using real-time traffic information from other vehicles similarly equipped.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
