Compact external dimensions coupled with a generous amount of space and a high load capacity open up a diverse range of applications for the new Mercedes-Benz Citan, especially in inner-city delivery and service provision operations. It is available both as a Panel Van and a Tourer. Wide-opening sliding doors on the left and right sides of the vehicle, as well as a low loading sill optionally enable comfortable access to the interior and easy loading of the vehicle. Inside, passengers will enjoy the comfortable seats of the Citan Tourer. In addition to its high functionality and variability, the vehicle provides comprehensive safety equipment and a high level of driving comfort. The new Citan compact van can be ordered from mid-September 2021 with a starting price expected to be less than 23,800 euros. The net list price of the basic model is thus anticipated to start at less than 20,000 euros.
The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class - The suspension systems- handier and more dynamic with rear axle steering
The suspension systems: handier and more dynamic with rear axle steering Innovative suspension systems provide an impressive driving experience in the new S-Class. Rear axle steering (optional extra) with a steering angle of up to 10° increases the car's manageability in the city to the level of a compact car. The turning circle of the S-Class is reduced by up to two meters with rear axle steering. The optional fully active 48 V-based E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL chassis offers a unique synthesis of comfort and agility and also provides additional protection in the event of a side crash. The AIRMATIC air suspension with ADS+ continuous adjustment damping is standard. Close networking of all suspension and control systems ensures maximum stability and safety. Mercedes-Benz is now reinforcing measures in the pre-crash phase with a new PRE-SAFE® Impuls Seite function: in the event of an impending side impact, the E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL chassis can raise the body by up to 80 millimetres within a few tenths of a second. The result is a reduction in the load on the door structures, as the sill can take over a larger part of the load introduction due to the raised position. As a result, the deformation of the passenger cell and the resulting stress on the occupants can be reduced. Radar sensors are used to detect a potential side crash.
The interior and space concept of the Audi urbansphere concept is completely designed for the well-being of driver, co-driver and passengers. Ambient lighting, high-tech entertainment and seats ensure maximum comfort during the journey.
The MC20 super sports car, now also a spyder: Maserati presents MC20 Cielo, a one-of-a-kind car that can deliver the performance of a true super sports car, together with a holistic and immersive driving pleasure the like of which has never been seen before. MC20 Cielo announces its special features in its very name: MC stands for Maserati Corse (‘Racing’); 20 refers to 2020, the year that began the brand’s new era; Cielo (‘sky’) highlights the fact that it is a model devoted to driving pleasure in the great outdoors, while maintaining all the prerogatives of the coupé. Equipped with the revolutionary V6 Nettuno engine, the Cielo offers a perfect mix of sportiness and luxury, courtesy of a specification unique to the segment: the innovative retractable glass roof. In actual fact, the new spyder acts a meeting point between Maserati audacity and the infinite sky, featuring a special “sky feeling”. The model is equipped with a state-of-the-art electrochromic (smart glass) window that can instantly be transformed from clear to opaque at the touch of a button on the central screen, courtesy of Polymer-Dispersed Liquid Crystal (PDLC) technology. The roof is also best-in-class in terms of thermal insulation and of opening and closing speed (just 12 seconds). Courtesy of this epitome of technology, MC20 Cielo provides a multi-sensory driving experience: all-encompassing with the roof closed and opaque; unique for the in-cabin brightness when the roof is transparent; holistic with the top down.
