In the open-plan interior, special attention was paid to selected, environmentally friendly materials. In the center console, for example, cork is used, which stands out with its texture and visual warmth. The door panel is made of a material whose structure appears to contain air, which further enhances the feeling of openness. Both materials are pollutant-free and sustainable: the door panel consists of fibers from recycled PET plastic bottles, while the cork is obtained from renewable tree bark without the need to fell trees. For the first time in a Mazda, the air conditioning is controlled by touchscreen. The seven-inch display, which also greets the driver when he gets in, continuously adapts its graphics to the outside environment, creating an interactive experience that strengthens the connection between people and the vehicle. From the materials to the functionality and technology to the design: all elements together create a space that attracts the driver's attention.
Introducing the new Land Rover Discovery
The Land Rover Discovery has been around since 2014. Now the successor of the Freelander is getting a facelift. And in addition to a slightly revised exterior, this includes new engines, new assistance systems and a new infotainment. But the new Discovery Sport has a lot more to offer. What the new one costs, what it cosumes, what updates it has on board and how it drives I explain during my test drive in the new Land Rover Discovery Sport D240 R-DYNAMIC S Source: http://quickcarreview.com

Opel has today revealed the all-new, sixth generation of the Astra. The success story of Opel's bestseller began 30 years ago with the descendant of the legendary Kadett. With the all-new Astra, the German manufacturer is now opening the next chapter: for the first time, the compact class model is available with electric drive. Opel will offer the new Astra in two performance levels as a plug-in hybrid. In addition, there are versions with highly efficient petrol and diesel engines in combination with friction-optimised six-speed manual and eight-speed automatic transmissions. The new Opel Astra is also a design statement for the brand. Dynamic as never before, with sheer, taut surfaces, detoxed of superfluous elements and with the new brand face – the Opel Vizor. With the next compact class generation, Opel shows that the Astra is ready to define a new era. The new Opel Astra will launch this year as a sporty five-door with a low-slung look and yet more space than its predecessor. With a length of 4,374 millimetres and width of 1,860 mm, it hits the sweet-spot of the compact sector. Thanks to the especially short front overhang, the new Astra is only 4.0 mm longer than the previous model, despite the considerably increased wheelbase of 2,675 mm (+13 mm). Notwithstanding the muscular, confident stance, the new Astra’s practical boot with adjustable floor still offers the driver and four passengers 422 litres of luggage volume.
