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.
The new Lexus UX 300e - interior design
As with all Lexus UX models, the exterior and interior merge seamlessly. The premium brand uses a traditional Japanese architectural concept, which has another advantage: the driver gets a particularly good feeling for the vehicle dimensions, which in combination with the excellent overview makes parking and manoeuvring easier even in narrow urban areas. In the driver-centered cockpit, all elements can be controlled intuitively and are easy to read. The direct field of vision includes the sporty digital speedometer, the range indicator and a four-stage deceleration indicator. The audio system is operated via the armrest integrated in the center console. A further central point of interaction is the finely crafted selector lever, which fits snugly in the hand and replaces the conventional gearshift. Thanks to "Shift-by-Wire" technology, the driver receives direct feedback. A shortened actuation stroke enables fast gear changes.
Vayyar, the global leader in 4D imaging radar, is advancing its mission of protecting every life on the road with the auto industry’s first in-cabin safety ‘combo’ solution. Powered by a single sensor, it’s designed to prevent both the “hot car” incidents that have claimed the lives of thousands of children as well as the countless deaths and injuries caused by vehicle occupants neglecting to wear seat belts. By providing OEMs and Tier 1s multifunctionality on a single-chip platform, Vayyar is ensuring affordable, leading-edge safety for all vehicle models. As part of the global effort to improve in-car safety, Euro NCAP is introducing stricter scoring criteria across all protocols, starting in 2023. Child Presence Detection (CPD) will be worth up to four points, while the existing requirement for front and rear Seat Belt Reminders (SBR) will become a precondition for achieving three additional Occupant Status (OS) points. Vayyar’s solution enables vehicles to earn these crucial seven safety points, while enhancing user experience by minimizing false alarms.
