The new model line’s assistance systems perfect ease of driving and safety. Included as standard in the ID. Buzz and ID. Buzz Cargo is the ‘Car2X’ local warning system, which utilises signals from other vehicles and the transport infrastructure to spot hazards in real time. Also included as standard: the ‘Front Assist’ emergency braking function and, in the MPV, the ‘Lane Assist’ lane-keeping assistant. With new software, new assistance functions are also making their way into the ID. family. Available as an option is ‘Travel Assist with swarm data’, which facilitates partially automated driving across the entire speed range and, for the first time, assisted lane-changing on the motorway. Also new: the ‘Memory Function’ for automated parking on a previously saved route.
The new Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Design in Racing Yellow
The coupe and convertible set off a fireworks display of technical refinements. The completely redesigned four-liter boxer engine, now 420 hp strong (309 kW; fuel consumption combined 10.9 l/100 km; CO2 emissions 249 g/km), adopts important components from the new 911, including its electronics. The selective cylinder control cuts out three of the six combustion chambers during constant cruising, thereby lowering consumption considerably. Particle filters help comply with current emissions standards. The Spyder in particular ups the ante notably with the chassis, which—like the GT4—is based on many lightweight aluminum components from the 911 GT3 and the Cup race car. Newly developed ultra-high-performance tires ensure even greater grip with special rubber mixtures. And the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and Porsche Stability Management (PSM) driving dynamics systems are precisely adapted to work in lockstep with the new features. And, as in all GT models from Porsche, they can be completely switched off as well. Optional ceramic brakes reduce the unsprung masses per wheel by up to 4.75 kilograms, or almost 50 percent.
The Nissan Qashqai is breaking new ground: e-Power will make its debut in the compact crossover SUV in late summer 2022. The unique electrified drive system is coming to Europe for the first time. As part of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, it points the way to electromobility and makes journeys just as pleasant as they are efficient. The drive system, specially tailored to European drivers, combines two Nissan strengths: advanced battery and motor technology as well as innovative combustion engines with variable compression ratios. This combination optimizes fuel efficiency without sacrificing driving pleasure. This is Nissan's response to the typical driving behavior of crossover owners: more than 70 percent drive predominantly in urban and suburban environments - and compromise on driving pleasure in favor of environmental protection. e-Power puts an end to that.
With its clearly structured surfaces, dynamic lines and large air intakes, the front apron adds even greater emphasis to the sporty appearance of the new BMW 3 Series Sedan and BMW 3 Series Touring. The redesigned headlights and kidney grille also give the car strong visual presence. The standard full-LED headlights are now much slimmer, with clear contours and daytime driving lights arranged in an inverted L shape to create a harmonious and modern look. Adaptive LED Headlights are available as an option, and are identifiable by the blue accents inside their covers. Blue light effects below the headlight units also give the front end a striking and high-class appearance in the hours of darkness. The Adaptive LED Headlights’ range of functions includes the cornering light and non-dazzling matrix high beam as well as dynamic headlight range control and variable light distribution. The lightly modified contours and new double bars give the BMW kidney grille an even more powerful look. Air intakes in Black high-gloss positioned below the kidney grille cool the braking system and add a sophisticated touch.
