With the all-new Aygo X, Toyota is introducing an exceptional crossover vehicle for the A segment. Developed, designed and built in Europe, it precisely meets the wishes and needs of local customers from urban centers and the surrounding area: The new Aygo X is compact and extremely manoeuvrable, combines advanced technologies with economically low operating costs and arouses emotions. The latest compact model in the Toyota product family is based on the successful GA-B platform. As a key element of the Toyota Global New Architecture (TNGA), it celebrated its world premiere with the current Yaris generation - the Car of the Year 2021 in Europe - and also provides the foundation for the Yaris Cross. In order for the new Aygo X to establish itself as the best offer in its class, Toyota researched the contemporary demands on a city vehicle at an early stage through detailed market research. The result: European customers expect a car with a modern design that combines a strong appearance with small external dimensions.
The Audi SQ7 - the exterior design
S-specific details make the special position of the Audi SQ7 TFSI and the Audi SQ8 TFSI recognizable at first glance. The front features double slats in a single frame and a pronounced three-dimensional blade in the bumper, honeycomb grids fill the enlarged side air inlets. On the flank, the aluminum-look exterior mirror housings catch the eye, while at the rear a powerfully designed underrun protection, a honeycomb grille insert and the four characteristic exhaust tailpipes set accents. Some attachments are matt silver, including the frame of the Singleframe, which is designed as a wide mask on the SQ8 TFSI. If the customer has ordered the black optics package, the frame and other parts are painted black
With the new R 18, BMW Motorrad now enters the cruiser segment. Like no other BMW motorcycle before it, this model stands entirely in the tradition of historical BMW motorcycles – both technically and in terms of design style. It borrows from famous models such as the BMW R 5 both technologically and visually, shifting the focus back onto the motorcycle essentials: purist, no-frills technology and the boxer engine as the epicentre of riding pleasure, combined with “good vibrations”. What is more, classic design is combined in the R 18 with clear-cut yet contemporary technology to create a fascinating overall concept – offering a riding experience that is as cultivated as it is emotional. The centrepiece the new BMW R 18 is a newly developed 2-cylinder boxer engine – the “Big Boxer”. Both its impressive appearance and its technology reflect a continuation of the traditional air-cooled boxer engines that have offered an inspiring riding experience since BMW Motorrad began production in 1923. The most powerful 2-cylinder boxer engine ever used in motorcycle series production has a displacement of 1 802 cc. The peak output is 67 kW (91 hp) at 4 750 rpm. From 2,000 to 4,000 rpm, over 150 Nm of torque is available at all times, and this elemental pulling power is combined with a full, resonant sound.
With its forward-oriented character lines and smooth surfaces the next-generation HR-V e:HEV embodies the brand's simple, clean, modern design philosophy already seen in recent new Honda models. Defined by the same key design concepts of function and beauty, the compact coupe-inspired shape is familiar yet exciting in appearance, with a playful character and confident SUV stance. Its sleek silhouette is achieved by increasing road clearance by 10 mm and reducing the roof height by 20 mm compared to the previous model. Increasing the size of the wheels to 18 inches, which come as standard on the all-new HR-V, and reducing the front overhang further reinforce the robust SUV appeal, and provides the aesthetic solidity that modern customers desire. The clean simplicity of design is realised through the car's smooth surfaces, with exterior design features incorporated into the body shape. For example, the headlights, unique body-coloured grille and distinctive lower mesh grille seamlessly integrate with the forward-protruding nose shape and front quarter panels, giving it a more sculpted appearance and creating a sleek, bold expression.
