Hybrid cars have become one of the most popular choices for drivers around the world. 619,129 plug-in hybrid vehicles were sold in Europe in 2020, a 210% increase. At SEAT, the Tarraco e-HYBRID joins the Leon e-HYBRID in the brand’s electric offensive and for the first time, they are driving together on the streets of Barcelona. SEAT’s plug-in hybrids go one step further in terms of connectivity by including new functions. With the SEAT CONNECT mobile app in the hybrid versions, users can remotely access their vehicle’s data and thus manage the battery charging process and even control and programme its climate control before getting into their car. SEAT CONNECT also provides safety, with automatic emergency calls and a button that relays the car’s data and location in the event of a breakdown.
The new Dacia Sandero - More space and comfort in the interior
The interior of the Sandero and Sandero Stepway offers even more space than in the previous models with almost unchanged external dimensions. This increases knee room in the rear by 4.2 centimeters, reaching the level of the compact mid-size class. The trunk capacity is 328 liters, making it suitable for families. Also practical: up to 21 liters of additional storage space are available in the interior. In the Sandero and Sandero Stepway, Dacia combines excellent space with outstanding ergonomics. The driver's seat, front headrests and steering wheel are height-adjustable. In addition, the valance can be adjusted in depth. Additional comfort, particularly in city traffic and when parking and unparking, is provided by the new electric power steering, which reduces steering effort by 36 percent. A parking aid with rear view camera is also available. The list of new comfort details includes the Keycard Handsfree keyless access and starting system and the electronic parking brake. Comfort is further enhanced by the hill-start assist system. As a novelty, customers will also be able to order an electric sunroof for the first time in 2021.
SEAT is updating its Ibiza, adding a refreshed exterior look, a revolution to the interior, as well as new levels of connectivity and driver assistant systems. The SEAT Ibiza has been a key pillar of the brand’s success since it was first introduced back in 1984, and after 37 years, five generations and nearly 6 million sales, it’s SEAT’s most successful vehicle to ever roll off the production line. The facelifted fifth generation is aiming to maintain that winning mentality as a key model in its segment in Europe. The world’s become increasingly digitalised and the SEAT Ibiza is ready to be part of the journey, bringing greater intuitiveness, functionality and quality to the interior space, achieved through an improved design language and increased levels of connected technology and new, more elegant materials.
