A car becomes an icon when its design DNA and character remain recognisable for decades. It is also important for an icon to provide fresh ideas in order to cope with the challenges of our time. Just like the VW Golf GTI. For 44 years, Volkswagen has been reinventing this icon of sporty, compact cars while retaining the original concept - generation after generation. The eighth reinterpretation of the Golf GTI is now celebrating its debut. Newly designed and engineered - fully digitalised and networked. A Golf GTI that is fit for the modern era. The Golf Mk1 from 1976 has long evolved into a vehicle family. This was followed in 1982 by the first Golf GTD with a turbocharged diesel engine, and in 2014 by the first Golf GTE to feature plug-in hybrid drive. And so it stands to reason that a new Golf GTD and a new Golf GTE are celebrating their world premières alongside the new VW Golf GTI. Three Golf variants, three characters, three efficient and clean drive systems - but one design and specification philosophy.

Audi is pressing forward consistently with its electrification offensive: at a world premiere with celebrity participants, the Four Rings company presented the Audi Q4 e-tron and the Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron. These all-electric models represent the brand’s entry into premium e-mobility in the compact segment.

Electric cars are quiet, clean and dynamic - but do they offer the same level of safety as a classic four-wheel drive vehicle on a slippery road surface? The Volvo XC40 is perfect for answering this question. With the premium compact SUV, the customer can choose between a wide variety of engines and drive concepts: combustion, mild and plug-in hybrids as well as a fully electric version, front-wheel drive, mechanical all-wheel drive and, with the Pure Electric model, all-wheel drive by means of electric motors on the front and rear axles. The Volvo XC40 is the latest addition to the model range and has risen from scratch to number two in the brand's internal sales ranking. It combines typical SUV advantages such as a raised seating position and good space with an attractive lifestyle appearance, high functionality - and a versatile range of drives. The series underlines its pioneering role in the field of electrification: The Volvo XC40 Recharge P8 AWD is the brand's first fully electric model.
