The new Kia Sorento, recently awarded the “Golden Steering Wheel 2020” in the “Large SUVs” class, is also one of the outstanding models in its segment when it comes to safety. In the official European safety test Euro NCAP it now received the top rating of "5 stars". The Kia flagship achieved high scores in the individual test categories: 82 percent for occupant protection for adults, 85 percent for occupant protection for children, 63 percent for pedestrian protection and 87 percent for driver support through safety systems. The test result applies to all three drive variants including the Sorento Plug-in Hybrid, which will be launched in the first quarter of 2021 and can already be ordered now. The fourth generation of the Kia SUV has been on the market as a hybrid gasoline and diesel engine since October.
Natural gas-powered ŠKODA OCTAVIA G-TEC with CNG drive now available for order
"ŠKODA is launching the next alternative drive variant of the new OCTAVIA: Customers can now order the ŠKODA OCTAVIA G-TEC, which is powered by Compressed Natural Gas (CNG or natural gas). The sedan with Ambition equipment, including 16 percent value-added tax, is available from 30,276 euros; the station wagon version is available from 30,959 euros. Both meet the Euro 6d-ISC-FCM (AP) emission standard, which will be in force from January 2021, and are content with 3.5 kg/100 km CNG in combined consumption according to the NEDC standard. In addition to the Ambition version, ŠKODA also offers the OCTAVIA G-TEC in the Style version and as an even more high-quality equipped special model FIRST EDITION. The ŠKODA OCTAVIA 1.5 TGI G-TEC DSG is consistently designed for operation with environmentally friendly natural gas (CNG). Its 1.5 TGI petrol engine produces 96 kW (130 PS) and distributes this power via an automatic 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox (DSG). The cleaner combustion of natural gas reduces CO2 emissions in CNG mode by around 25 percent compared to gasoline operation, and there are also significantly fewer nitrogen oxides (NOx) and no soot particles. In CNG mode the OCTAVIA G-TEC has a combined consumption of 3.5 to 3.4 kg/100 km and 4.6 l/100 km in gasoline mode. CO2 emissions are correspondingly low at 96 to 93 g/km. "

Land Rover has confirmed the new commercial versions of Defender 90 and 110 models will restore the Hard Top name to its rugged 4x4 family. The Defender Hard Top will be launched later this year, combining all-terrain capability with connectivity to give a unique combination of cargo space, practicality and premium comfort. The Hard Top name dates back to 1950, when the introduction of demountable Hard Tops gave early Series Land Rovers added security and protection from the elements. New Defender Hard Top continues this ethos, sharing its fixed metal roof and silhouette with the iconic original.
