The new Toyota Hilux, with numerous modifications and improvements in a myriad of elements, from the body to the engine through the chassis, equipment and infotainment technology. Thus, Hilux 2021 can now be purchased, in a pre-sale format until the first units reach the Spanish market at the end of the year or early 2021. The new Hilux, an extension of the success story of more than four decades that stars this pick-up thanks to its undeniable values of quality, durability and reliability, presents a renewed design, in which its new front panel stands out, the LED option for headlights and lamps, the new range of alloy wheels and, especially, the new Hilux INVINCIBLE version with an exclusive, powerful and robust image. Like the 2021 Land Cruiser, the new Hilux is powered by the new 150 kW / 204 hp 2.8D engine, paired with a six-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed Super ECT automatic transmission. This engine will coexist with the 110 kW / 150 hp 2.4D that Hilux has been running since 2016.
The new Skoda Octavia Scout Design in Studio
The ŠKODA OCTAVIA is the heart of the Czech car manufacturer and tops the bestseller lists in numerous European countries. In the fourth generation of the OCTAVIA, the robust SCOUT and two other sporty RS variants complete the portfolio. By electrifying the powertrain using the new mild hybrid technology and two OCTAVIA iV models with plug-in hybrid drives, ŠKODA once again significantly reduces the CO2 emissions of the new OCTAVIA. The bestseller's IV variants drive up to 60 kilometers locally without emissions in the WLTP cycle, and the internal combustion engines are also constantly being further developed. They are even more efficient and ŠKODA has reduced the emission of nitrogen oxides by around 80 percent in the diesel generators of the new EVO generation. With two body variants, front or all-wheel drive, manual gearbox or direct shift gearbox (DSG) and five drive options - petrol, diesel, CNG, mild and plug-in hybrid - every ŠKODA customer will find the right OCTAVIA. The heart of the all-wheel drive in the OCTAVIA is the electronically controlled multi-plate clutch, which, following the extensive technical revision in the current sixth generation, is also significantly lighter than its predecessor.
