The new BMW 5 Series Facelift Trailer
A heightened sense of outward authority, an interior brimming with detail refinements, the efficiency-enhancing influence of electrification and cutting-edge innovations in the areas of driver assistance, control/operation and connectivity help the new BMW 5-Series to cement its leading position at the premium end of the executive class. Over 600,000 units of the BMW 5-Series Sedan and BMW 5-Series Touring have been sold worldwide since the market launch of the current model generation. Their eye-catching design aesthetic, hallmark BMW driving pleasure, trailblazing semi-automated driving technologies and unmatched digital services imbue the two models with standout appeal. And now, with a new wave of carefully judged optimisations carried out in these key areas, all the necessary pieces are in place to extend the illustrious history of the sporty business sedan and equally dynamic Touring all-rounder.
The all-new 2022 Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer mark the rebirth of a premium American icon, with legendary capability courtesy of three available 4x4 systems, exceptional driving dynamics, powerful performance, including best-in-class towing capability of up to 10,000 lbs., advanced technology, safety and a new level of comfort for up to eight passengers – all wrapped in a sophisticated and authentic new design culminating in an undeniable presence. As a premium extension of the Jeep brand, Wagoneer launches with a portfolio of vehicles that includes two models: the all-new 2022 Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer. While the Jeep brand broadly covers the North American mainstream SUV market from the compact to full-size segments, Wagoneer will significantly expand into the Large SUV segment while Grand Wagoneer competes in the premium segment. Wagoneer, designed and engineered to compete in the heart of the Large SUV segment, appeals to the classic, ever-growing American family and the couple that has it all. Creating an adventure with the ability to seat up to eight passengers and carry everything that comes with them is what the Wagoneer experience is all about. A best-in-class towing capability of up to 10,000 lbs. allows for almost any toy to be towed while occupants sit comfortably inside enjoying gracefully integrated advanced technology and connectivity.
Clear the stage for the new Nissan Qashqai: The third generation of the crossover pioneer is now on the road. The new edition combines a sharpened design with a networked, upgraded interior, new technologies and features as well as an electrified drive - ingredients that guarantee maximum driving pleasure in almost every situation. The basis for this fine-tuning is provided by the CMF-C platform, which gives developers, designers and engineers additional freedom - optically and technically alike. As a result, the architecture raises the quality and the driving experience to a level that is generally only expected in higher vehicle classes. Around a decade and a half after the original was launched, the Qashqai is once again setting standards and taking account of progress and change in the automotive industry. Packed in the design language that was unchanged in the European design studio in London, the flagship scores with a sporty, elegant look. The Qashqai, which is almost 4.43 meters (+35 mm) long, looks sharper, more modern and more well-trained. While an enlarged Nissan V-Motion radiator grille with a chrome finish and flanking full-LED matrix headlights characterizes the face, the striking shoulder line, the 19 millimeter longer wheelbase and the up to 20-inch alloy wheels catch the eye when viewed from the side.
