Here it is – the world premiere of the BMW i4 live in front of you! What a great car! As Pieter Nota said: The fully-electric i4 comes right from the heart of BMW. Many customers have been eagerly waiting for it. This is a clear sign that markets are ready now for electromobility. And that made releasing this Gran Coupé three months earlier than planned an easy decision for us.
The Porsche 718 models highlights
The Sport Response Button, centrally located in the mode switch, switches the response of the engine and transmission to maximum performance for 20 seconds regardless of the current driving mode. This function, inspired by racing, supports spontaneous overtaking. In the top models 718 Spyder and 718 Cayman GT4 the driving program is given a characteristic typical of GT: the PDK Sport button can be used to program it for maximum performance. An automatic selector lever in the 911 GT3 design underscores the emotional GT experience. The seventh gear of the PDK is shorter in all 718 four-liter naturally aspirated engine derivatives. In addition, the PDK versions of the 718 Spyder and 718 Cayman GT4 benefit from the greater effect of their mechanical rear axle transverse lock: in pull and push mode it achieves locking values of 30 and 37 percent compared with 22 and 27 percent in manual transmission. This has a positive effect on longitudinal and lateral dynamics as well as on traction and increases driving pleasure.
The SUV’s TOP SAFETY PICK rating was driven by its performance in six IIHS crashworthiness tests that included three types of frontal crashes. The remaining tests evaluate behavior in a side impact, rear impact and a rollover. The 2022 Jeep Compass achieved the highest possible score in each. Further, the vehicle’s automatic emergency braking technology – Full-speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking – earned the highest possible rating of “superior,” while its Pedestrian/Cyclist Automatic Emergency Braking system was rated “advanced.” Both features, which are standard equipment on the 2022 Jeep Compass, are designed to detect imminent collisions and, in certain conditions, automatically apply the vehicle’s brakes. These are among more than 75 available safety and security features. Others include Active Lane Management and Rear Cross Path detection.
Bentley is completing its new driver-focused S range with the launch of the new Flying Spur S, bringing extra dimensions of increased dynamic ability, dramatic visual presence and heightened aural drama to further enhance Bentley’s pinnacle four-door sedan. This is the first time that Bentley’s historic ‘S’ badge has been applied to a Hybrid product and is another step towards Beyond100, Bentley’s vision of the future and sustainable pathway forwards. The Bentley Flying Spur has long been feted for its ability to engage the driver without compromising passenger comfort. As with the recently launched Continental GT S and GT S Convertible, the new Flying Spur S models focus on the pleasure of driving – but with the added choice between 4.0-litre V8 or V6 Hybrid powertrains. Bentley customers now have a clear choice, with the comfort-oriented Flying Spur Azure emphasising ‘Wellbeing behind the Wheel’, or the new Flying Spur S models expanding the visual, tactile and aural enhancements to the driving experience.
