Combining fluidity, elegance and robustness, the New Renault Arkana challenges the traditional codes of the SUV market in Europe, with a design previously reserved for premium brand vehicles. A first for a generalist manufacturer! This new offering, which complements Renault's compact range (Mégane, Kadjar and Scénic), is part of a rapidly growing SUV market worldwide. The interior of the New Renault Arkana is also aimed at families, both in terms of roominess and load volume. Equipped with one of the largest displays in its category thanks to its two screens, the New Renault Arkana has a high-tech driver's station that emphasizes quality and comfort. The New Renault Arkana is equipped with a new hybrid offer in its segment with E-TECH Hybrid 140 hp and 1.3 TCe 140 and TCe 160 12V micro-hybrid engines. The E-TECH Hybrid technology, which already equips Clio, Captur and Mégane, is a Renault innovation that has been the subject of more than 150 patents and is based on the Group's experience in electric vehicles and F1.

Porsche is presenting a further performance-oriented plug-in hybrid model with the new Panamera 4S E-Hybrid. The intelligent combination of the 100 kW (136 PS) electric motor integrated into the eight-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission and the 2.9-litre V6 biturbo engine with 324 kW (440 PS) generates a system output of 412 kW and a maximum system torque of 750 Nm. The performance figures are therefore very impressive: combined with the standard Sport Chrono Package, the sprint from 0 – 100 km/h is covered in 3.7 seconds. The top speed is 298 km/h. The gross battery capacity has been increased from 14.1 to 17.9 kWh compared with the previous hybrid models using optimised cells and the driving modes have been optimised for even more efficient energy utilisation. The 4S E-Hybrid has an all-electric range of up to 54 km in accordance with WLTP EAER City (NEDC: up to 64 km).
With a striking new debut, Toyota is breaking the sameness barrier in the midsize two-row crossover utility vehicle (CUV) category. The all-new 2021 Venza delivers an intuitive driving experience with smooth acceleration, predictable handling, and low noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH), all wrapped in a sophisticated design. The all-new 2021 Toyota Venza comes equipped exclusively with the Toyota Hybrid System II powertrain and advanced Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive. Along with comfortable urban and highway performance, Venza is expected to have impressive fuel efficiency, with a preliminary manufacturer-estimated 40 MPG combined fuel economy in LE trim. The 2021 Toyota Venza, which arrives in Toyota dealerships in summer 2020, is built around a version of the Toyota New Global Architecture K platform that underpins some of the company's sedans and crossovers. As such, Venza delivers the best of both worlds: sedan-like driving comfort and CUV versatility. The 2021 Venza offers ample room for five in a highly maneuverable package. A host of tech-focused features are available, including a 12.3-inch touchscreen display with nine JBL speakers, 7-inch multi-information display (MID), digital rear-view mirror, and 10-inch color Head-Up Display. Other available features include a Star GazeTM fixed panoramic glass roof, a first-ever for Toyota, and heated and ventilated front seats that set the stage for true, graceful grand touring.
Direct from the racetracks of Europe comes the roar of the new Abarth F595, the new special series – fitted with an F.4 engine – dedicated to the youngest fans of the Scorpion brand. “Champing at the bit” under the bonnet are the 165 horsepower of the high-performance 1.4-liter Euro 6D-Final-compliant T-jet engine, the basis for the engine in the Tatuus single-seaters used in the Italian and German “F.4 Championships Powered by Abarth Certified by FIA”. The “F” in the name is intended as a tribute to Formula 4, for which Abarth is the exclusive engine supplier and acts as the Title Sponsor. A successful format created as a training ground for young drivers, talents from karting and the professionals of the future, inspired by the legendary “Formula Italia”, established in 1971 with the same philosophy: to provide young drivers with low-cost access to the world of open-wheeled single-seater cars.
