Certain variants of the S-Class and, in the future, of the EQS and the EQE are the first production vehicles to offer pre-installation for the INTELLIGENT PARK PILOT in Germany with the corresponding special equipment. INTELLIGENT PARK PILOT will enable automated valet parking in multi-storey car parks in the future. For this, the multi-storey car parks must be equipped with the appropriate infrastructure from Bosch. The system then makes it possible to drive fully automatically to a reserved parking space and leave it again - without anyone being in the vehicle. Mercedes-Benz RDNA, in cooperation with Bosch Automated Valet Parking, recently presented an EQS 580 as a demo vehicle at an event in downtown Los Angeles. Demonstrating the effectiveness, convenience and practicality of this sophisticated, industry-leading new technology. Mercedes-Benz is checking whether the pre-installation will be offered in the USA in the future by continuously monitoring the market.
Fiat Panda Sport Trailer
Aimed at the young and dynamic customer, the New Panda Sport is marked out by its distinctive aesthetics: the new two-tone 16” ‘Sport’ alloy wheels with black and red tires; the handles and wing mirror caps in the same color as the bodywork, on demand in gloss black paired with a black roof (optional); and the exclusive chrome “Sport” logo on the side panel, above the direction indicator. A new and exclusive Matt Gray livery is also available. The same bold features can also be found in the interiors, where the standouts include the new titanium-colored dashboard, specific door panels in eco-leather, black ceiling and new seats with dark gray upholstery, techno-leather details, fabric side panels and red stitching. And for the customer who wants an even bolder image, the New Panda Sport can be fitted on demand with the Pandemonio Pack – a clear homage to the kit launched in 2006 on the Panda 100 HP – which includes red brake calipers, blacked-out windows and the new techno-leather steering wheel with red stitching. For the first time on the model, the features as standard include the new 7” touchscreen radio with DAB digital system, set up for Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, to fully integrate your smartphone, which can be placed in a useful mount above the radio.
Another highlight of the revised SANTA FE is the new third generation vehicle platform from Hyundai. It not only enables the seamless integration of the electrified drive train, but also creates a remarkably generous interior space with hardly any changes to the external dimensions: The Hyundai SANTA FE is the leader in its class in terms of leg and headroom on the rear seat bench. This also applies to the plug-in hybrid, which, like all other SANTA FE variants, can optionally be ordered as a seven-seater “Seven”, despite the additionally built-in battery pack. The Hyundai SANTA FE plug-in hybrid, which is extensively equipped as standard, can be further upgraded with three attractive packages. The trend package also includes leather seats, full LED projection headlights and LED taillights, as well as steering wheel heating. The Prime package also offers extras such as seat heating at the rear, ventilated front seats with memory function (driver's seat only), an electrically adjustable seat cushion extension, a tailgate that opens and closes at the push of a button, a head-up display and automatic level control on the rear axle .
