The new KAROQ is characterised by ŠKODA’s updated emotive design language featuring crystalline elements. New design details include the wider, now hexagonal ŠKODA grille, restyled front and rear aprons, as well as slimmer and sharper LED headlights and tail lights. The daytime running lights are now split in two, and for the first time, the KAROQ can be equipped with full-LED Matrix headlights as an option. Aerodynamics have been improved by more than 9%, meaning that the SUV now boasts a drag coefficient (cd) of 0.30 and correspondingly lower CO2 emissions. This has been made possible, for example, by new alloy wheels with Aero inserts, a longer rear spoiler, side finlets on the rear window and the now covered underbody. An increased range of state-of-the-art assistance and safety systems ensures even higher levels of active and passive safety.
The new Mercedes-AMG E 63 S 4MATIC+ Estate - Exquisite interior with a sporty touch and a high level of long-distance comfort
"The interior combines a refined ambience and high-quality materials with the characteristic AMG performance. The AMG seats are upholstered in nappa leather, combine secure lateral support with a high level of long-distance comfort and feature AMG-specific seat graphics with "AMG" badge in the front seat backrests. Further leather versions are available as an option. AMG performance seats with integrated head restraints and even better lateral support can also be ordered on request. In the S-version, the product managers have further refined the interior, including leather nappa upholstery for the instrument panel and vehicle edges, as well as safety belts in crystal grey. The range also includes new, AMG-specific upholstery in leather nappa black/titanium grey pearl with yellow contrasting stitching. Individually adjustable ambient lighting is also fitted as standard. A further highlight is the MBUX infotainment system with touchscreen and touchpad, intelligent voice control and AMG-specific displays and settings. The two bonded displays for instrument cluster and multimedia displays merge optically under a common cover glass to form the widescreen cockpit. In the basic model, the monitors measure 10.25 inches diagonally, while 12.25 inch screens are fitted as standard in the S model. To view the instrument cluster, the customer can switch between the three AMG display styles "Modern Classic", "Sport" and "Supersport". A particularly striking feature is the "Supersport" mode with a central, round tachometer and perspective horizontal displays located to the left and right of the tachometer, creating an impression of spatial depth".
Porsche has won the Monza round of the FIA World Endurance Championship. Kévin Estre from France and Neel Jani from Switzerland crossed the finish line first in the fiercely contested GTE-Pro class at the wheel of the No. 92 Porsche 911 RSR on Italy's high-speed circuit.
Looking back, it is stunning how much of the future the Mercedes-Benz F 100 research vehicle already featured in 1991. Be it operating the phone with buttons on the steering wheel, distance control or the electronic tyre pressure monitoring system as well as many attributes of networked vehicles: what seemed utopian three decades ago forms part of the familiar equipment scope of contemporary passenger cars and commercial vehicles. The research vehicle was presented to the public on 12 January 1991 at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, USA, a specialist exhibition that has been held since back in 1907. Engineers and designers fitted more pioneering technology in the F 100 than in any research vehicle ever before. At the same time, however, the list of technology carriers is as long as it is impressive. It all started with the Patent Motor Car by Carl Benz dating back to 1886, the world’s first ever car and also an experimental vehicle. And the list is far from complete with the 2020 “VISION AVTR” concept vehicle.
