The 2 Series Gran Coupe is based on the BMW 1 Series tested in 2019. Where necessary, additional tests have been performed and test results have been reviewed. Based on this analysis, Euro NCAP concludes that the rating of the 1 Series can be applied also to the 2 Series Gran Coupe, with the following exception: the 2 Series Gran Coupe and, since October 2020, the 1 Series are now equipped with front seats and head restraints which offer better whiplash protection than those originally tested in the 1 Series and the car qualifies for points in AEB City. As a consequence, the adult occupant score of the 2 Series is higher than that of the 1 Series.
The Land Rover Discovery Sport - the digital experience
The 2021 Discovery Sport reaches a new dimension in terms of the digital experience. This is because the range now includes the state-of-the-art Pivi Infotainment System, which was first seen in the new Land Rover Defender. Pivi is ready for use right from the start - its own battery and separate data plan ensure delay-free operation; booting the system is virtually eliminated. The integrated data connection enables free software updates "Over-The-Air" at any time, with the updates being launched at the appropriate time as required. In this way, Discovery Sport users always have access to the most current data for maps, apps or vehicle systems - without having to visit the workshop. The backbone of the infotainment system is a new, high-performance electronic vehicle architecture. In the Discovery Sport, infotainment is available either as a Pivi version or - starting with the Discovery Sport S - as an even more comprehensive Pivi Pro.
Standard Rear Occupant Alert (door logic based) is newly added. For added convenience, 8-inch display equipped vehicles now come with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto standard (previously wired only). Smart Key equipped vehicles now feature the new Remote Engine Start. Navigation equipped vehicles receive MapCare program with 10 years of complimentary map updates. Niro also expands its DriveWise Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) to feature Navigation-based Smart Cruise Control and Curve (NSCC-C) on vehicles with Navigation and Smart Cruise Control.
Bugatti Chiron Sport ‘Les Légendes du Ciel’ meets Dassault Rafale Marine - A match-up of Two Superlatives
The driver and the pilot both look ahead, highly focused. They wait for the starting signal. The famous French Tricolor drops and moments later, the asphalt begins to vibrate. The two set off alongside one another. The driver and the pilot look into the horizon and go full throttle. With tires on smooth tar, two engines ignite their afterburners and proverbially light up the black surface. The two machines of kin and shared legacy roar and disappear out of view in a matter of seconds.
