Freedom, joie de vivre and a spirit of optimism accompany the start of the new summer season. The Italian expression Dolce Vita literally describes the feeling of enjoying life and rediscovering the joy of small and large things: the sweet life. The origins of the Dolce Vita go back to the 1950s and 60s, when Rome and Cortina, Portofino and Capri were the scene of the international jet set that met in these places to seek relaxation under the sign of elegance and Italian style. This feeling is conveyed by the new Fiat 500X Yachting, a new body shape of the model, with an electric soft top for the right open air feeling. At the start of the new variant, the “Yacht Club Capri” special series will be launched first, inspired by the flair of luxurious sailing yachts. This special model is available for both Fiat 500X Yachting and Fiat 500C.
New Kia Sorento achieves 5 stars in Euro NCAP
The new Kia Sorento, recently awarded the “Golden Steering Wheel 2020” in the “Large SUVs” class, is also one of the outstanding models in its segment when it comes to safety. In the official European safety test Euro NCAP it now received the top rating of "5 stars". The Kia flagship achieved high scores in the individual test categories: 82 percent for occupant protection for adults, 85 percent for occupant protection for children, 63 percent for pedestrian protection and 87 percent for driver support through safety systems. The test result applies to all three drive variants including the Sorento Plug-in Hybrid, which will be launched in the first quarter of 2021 and can already be ordered now. The fourth generation of the Kia SUV has been on the market as a hybrid gasoline and diesel engine since October. The stability of the passenger cell, which also effectively protects all critical areas of the body of up to seven occupants, was rated particularly positively. The restraint systems and head restraints also proved their efficiency in the rear impact test by providing effective protection against head and neck injuries. The completely redesigned body of the Sorento consists largely of ultra-high-strength steel. Their torsional stiffness is 12.5 percent higher than that of the competitor that is perceived as the “safety leader” in this segment. The seven airbags fitted as standard include a new center airbag between the front seats, which is intended to prevent the driver and front passenger from hitting their heads in a collision
