Thanks to the three sustainable drive variants, the CO2 emissions of the new OCTAVIA drop significantly.
The Hyundai Santa Fe - New platform for enhanced performance and safety
"The redesigned Santa Fe is the first Hyundai SUV in the world based on the new Hyundai third-generation vehicle platform. This platform enables significant improvements in performance, handling and safety. The Santa Fe features an airflow control system that optimizes air circulation in the engine compartment and thus heat dissipation. In addition, the vehicle's center of gravity is now lower. The aerodynamics, which have also been improved, increase fuel efficiency and driving performance. Driving noise has been reduced by renewed sound-absorbing systems in vibration-sensitive parts. In addition, the new platform brings significant improvements in collision safety. The Santa Fe facelift will be available in Germany from fall 2020".
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.
The year was 2006 when Piaggio introduced a vehicle on the market that would forever change the face of urban and metropolitan mobility: Piaggio MP3 was the first and inimitable three-wheeled scooter in the world, with the exclusive patented suspension system that connects them combine the safety of a car with the simplicity and practicality of a scooter and the fun of a dynamic motorcycle ride on a twisty road. Piaggio MP3 created a new market segment where it has remained the undisputed leader, thanks to constant technological development. It is a sixteen year long success story measured by the over 230,000 vehicles sold thus far, but which is even more overwhelming when we consider its popularity with a global and transverse public, from car drivers looking for a more practical and increasingly safer alternative - Piaggio MP3 can be driven with just a car driver's license - to advanced motorcycle riders who are capable of exploiting the advantages and technical features of a unique vehicle.
