Two new versatile Subaru vehicles arrive at Kansas dealership

Subaru Impreza and XV Crosstrek now available for sale at Briggs Subaru of Topeka

TOPEKA, Kan., Jan. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Two of the newest vehicles to join the Subaru lineup are the 2014 models of the XV Crosstrek and the Impreza, both of which cater to different lifestyles. The XV Crosstrek is designed with the adventurer in mind. It's equipped with a number of different off-road features including the highest ground clearance of any Subaru model. The Impreza, on the other hand, is well suited for consumers who plan to keep their Subaru on more conventional roads.

The 2014 Subaru Impreza is offered as both a four-door sedan and a five-door hatchback. Both models are fuel efficient and affordable, but consumers seeking a larger storage capacity are likely to find that the hatchback better suits their needs. When the split-folding rear seatback is collapsed, the Impreza hatchback provides roughly 52 cubic feet of storage space—much larger than the 12 cubic feet found in the sedan model. Both models of the Impreza do come with integrated roof rails, however, which provide plenty of extra space.

Roof rails also come standard on top of the 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek, which is offered strictly as a five-door hatch. The Crosstrek, which shares a lot of qualities with the Impreza hatchback, also offers 52 cubic feet of storage space with the rear seatback collapsed. New to the Crosstrek for 2014 is a hybrid powertrain which allows the crossover SUV to travel up to achieve a combined fuel economy of 31. It's the first hybrid offering from Subaru, but it's off to a good start. The XV Crosstrek is the lowest-emissions, most fuel-efficient all-wheel drive hybrid crossover in America.

Consumers are sure to appreciate the fact that both the 2014 Impreza and the 2014 XV Crosstrek recently received Top Safety Pick ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety after they scored high ratings in all five crash safety tests—including the newly-implemented small overlap front test. The new models join the Forester, Legacy and Outback as 2014 Top Safety Picks.

For more information on the 2014 models of the Subaru Impreza and the XV Crosstrek, visit the Briggs Subaru of Topeka website at www.briggssubaruoftopeka.com. Questions about either of the models, or about the services provided at the Briggs Subaru, can be directed to the dealership's professional staff which can be contacted through the website, or by phone at 855-346-9385.

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective ...
Collecting data in the field and configuring multitudes of unique devices is a time-consuming, labor-intensive process that can stretch IT resources.

After data was collected and structured, two major areas needed to be addressed: improving developer workflows and extending access to a b...
When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...
