There are features in your vehicle you hope you will never have to use – and yet it is reassuring to have them on board. This is true, for example, of the automatic emergency call eCall, which has been mandatory for every new car in the EU since 2018. The mobile online services of ŠKODA Connect also offer other helpful functions in all current ŠKODA models with the exception of the CITIGOᵉ iV, grouped as proactive services under Care Connect. These support drivers with any questions they have about the car. Two functions in particular help to ensure a relaxed journey, especially during the travel season: the info and breakdown calls, the buttons for which can be found in the roof module next to the red emergency call button and are marked with an ‘i’ or a spanner.

For seven generations, the Volkswagen Jetta has delivered a compelling mix of European handling and style in a four-door sedan package that’s been popular worldwide, with roughly 18 million sold globally and 3.2 million sold in the United States. As the newest Jetta arrives this year, we took a look back at the evolution of the Jetta over the decades. Born from the demand for a Golf-sized model with a trunk, the original Jetta was introduced to American audiences in 1979 as a 1980 model. Assembled at the Wolfsburg factory in Germany, the Jetta offered drivers 76 horsepower and upscale styling for the subcompact sedan segment. In an era of frugality, the Jetta came across as slightly more luxurious than the Rabbit, with features such as optional automatic transmission and full carpeting.
The CUPRA Born is the unconventional challenger, delivering electrifying performance using the most advanced electric powertrain technology, seamlessly augmenting the spirit of the CUPRA brand with an electrified future. The CUPRA Born forms the next stage of the brand’s development, and as the industry shifts to a more environmentally conscious position, electrification is key. CUPRA has already invested heavily in the technology, bringing the plug-in hybrid versions of CUPRA Leon, CUPRA Leon Sportstourer and CUPRA Formentor models to the market. The new era is also fully electric. The CUPRA Born integrates the most advanced pure electric powertrain technology: a choice of 150PS (110kW) or 204PS (150kW) electric engines deliver energy to the rear wheels, coupled to a high-performance lithium-ion battery pack with a capacity of up to 58kWh provides an enormous range of around 420km. It doesn’t stop there, it goes beyond.
