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.
Head of character - The new SsangYong Korando
In its fourth model generation, the Korando has matured into a strong challenger in the popular compact SUV segment. Its expressive design conveys a powerful presence, while in the interior, high-quality materials - a new 10.25-inch digital instrument panel with variable displays, a touchscreen measuring up to 9.2 inches in the center console and mood lighting - create an atmosphere that is both advanced and warm. Inside, the new Korando offers generous space for up to five occupants thanks to the increased wheelbase of 2.68 meters. The trunk volume of 551 liters is very well in line with the competition; the two-level cargo floor makes loading and unloading particularly easy. The tailgate opens electrically and automatically on request. Other equipment highlights include heated and ventilated front seats with eight-way power seat adjustment for the driver, full LED headlights and smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The comprehensive range of camera- and radar-based "Deep Control" safety systems helps the driver identify potential hazards and master critical driving situations. For greater driving comfort and safety, the new intelligent adaptive cruise control system uses gentle steering interventions to keep the vehicle in the middle of the lane by itself, in addition to automatic acceleration and braking, thus enabling a semi-autonomous driving experience according to autonomy level 2.5.

Scuderia Ferrari Mission Winnow’s SF21 car that will race this season, was seen for the first time today and features a subtle livery that looks to the challenges of the future without forgetting the team’s roots and history. “The rear end is reminiscent of the burgundy red of the very first Ferrari, the 125 S,” explained Team Principal Mattia Binotto. “But as it moves gradually towards the cockpit area, it transforms into the modern red that we have used in most recent years. This season presents us with many challenges and through this livery, visually, we reboot from our past and head into the future.” The car. This car is the 67th to be built in Maranello to compete in the Formula 1 World Championship and is an evolution of last year’s SF1000, as dictated by the regulations, which require the use of the same chassis as in 2020, thus limiting the opportunities for change in many areas. Therefore, the SF21 was developed in all the permitted areas, from the engine, which is completely new, to the aerodynamics and, at the rear end, which is where the two development tokens allowed in the regulations have been used. Line-up. The SF21 makes its track debut tomorrow in Bahrain for a Filming Day, during which it can complete up to 100 kilometres for the purpose of acquiring film footage for team partners and media use. The Scuderia’s youngest driver line-up since 1968, Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz, will both drive.

Before that, they will tackle the only 2021 pre-season test, getting to grips with the new car over three days at the Sakhir circuit.
