Nissan announced a new driver-assistance technology, which is currently in-development, that utilizes highly accurate, real-time information about the vehicle’s surrounding environment to dramatically enhance collision avoidance. At a Nissan facility here, a test vehicle was used to demonstrate how this technology can automatically perform collision-avoidance maneuvers. Nissan’s “ground truth perception” technology fuses information from next-generation high-performance LIDAR, radar and cameras. The technology can detect the shape and distance of objects, as well as the structure of the area surrounding the vehicle, in real time with a high degree of accuracy. Utilizing this information, it is possible for the vehicle to instantly analyze the current situation, judge and automatically perform required collision-avoidance operations. This technology can also detect slowed traffic and road obstacles in the distance and execute lane changes accordingly. Importantly, the technology can also provide increased support to drivers in areas where detailed map information is not available.
The SUVs from Hyundai
"Here you will find all the latest information about the SUVs from Hyundai: Hyundai Kona, Hyundai Tucson and Hyundai Santa Fe. Hyundai Kona Hyundai is expanding the range of the Kona lifestyle SUV with two modern diesel engines that already meet the Euro 6d-Temp emissions standard, which will only become mandatory in September 2019. In order to comply with the strict Euro 6d-Temp emissions standard, state-of-the-art exhaust gas purification technologies are used for both the gasoline and diesel engines. This is because compliance with the limits is tested according to the new WLTP (Worldwide Harmonized Light-Duty Vehicle Test Procedure) measurement cycle and the RDE (Real Driving Emissions) test, in which exhaust emissions are measured in real driving conditions on the road. Hyundai is therefore equipping all gasoline engines in the Kona with a gasoline particulate filter to reduce soot particles with immediate effect. In addition to the diesel particulate filter and oxidation catalyst, the two new diesels receive an SCR (selective catalytic reduction) system that converts nitrogen oxide (NOX) emissions into nitrogen and water by injecting a urea solution to reduce them. Hyundai Tucson The Hyundai Tucson launches in its new, face-lifted version with immediate effect at prices starting at 22,970 euros in Germany. Packaged in a fresh design, the new edition convinces with extended standard equipment and attractive extras. In the course of the extensive model revision, further advanced comfort and safety technologies have found their way into the compact SUV. These include Hyundai SmartSense technologies such as an attention assistant (DAW) and Around View Monitor (AVM), as well as smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a wireless charging function. Hyundai Santa Fe Hyundai achieves a place on the podium of the residual value giants of spring 2022 three times with the Santa Fe, Ioniq and i30 models. Every six months, the market research company Bähr & Fess Forecasts GmbH prepares analyses on the value retention of new cars in cooperation with FOCUS Online. The absolute and relative value retention of a vehicle at the time of resale in four years is forecast. The analyses offer fleet managers and private customers alike a valuable decision-making aid for the purchase of a new vehicle. In the SUV segment, the Hyundai Santa Fe 2.4 GDI is the model with the highest absolute value retention compared with its competitors. The flagship of the Hyundai SUV range, with a new price of 31,490 euros for the 2.4 gasoline direct injection engine with front-wheel drive and in Trend equipment, comes to 17,949 euros residual value after four years, making it the "Residual Value Giant 2022."

Based on its dimensions, the Audi A6 Avant e-tron concept clearly represents the upscale segments – 4.96 meters (16.3 feet) in length, 1.96 meters (6.4 feet) in width, and 1.44 meters (4.7 feet) in height, the same as the current models in the Audi A6/A7 series. With its dynamic proportions and elegant lines, including the Avant back end typical of the brand, it’s obvious at first glance that this vehicle was conceived in a wind tunnel. Aerodynamics has always played a key role in Audi’s long history of success in the luxury class. The cW value of the Audi 100 / C3 – the aerodynamics world champion of all classes in its day – is legendary: with its cW value of 0.30, Audi was already far outperforming its competitors as early as 1982, and continued to do so for many years thereafter. Now the electrically powered family of the Audi A6 e-tron concept is writing a new chapter in this success story, proving once again that the brand always combines form and function in perfect symbiosis. The Sportback’s cW value of just 0.22 is unprecedented in the electrified C-segment. With its expansive roofline, the Avant’s cW value is just 0.02 units above that. In layman’s terms, this means the car exhibits minimal aerodynamic drag – which initially translates into lower energy consumption and therefore extended range. At the same time, the fine-tuning in the wind tunnel has once again resulted in an organic design with exceptional elegance and harmony down to the last detail. Large 22-inch wheels and short overhangs, the flat cabin, and a dynamic roof arch give the Avant proportions that are distinctly reminiscent of a sports car.
This animation shows the functionality of the torque splitter which is featured in the Audi RS 3 Sedan prototype and the Audi RS 3 Sportback prototype. The torque splitter distributes more weight onto the rear axle and results in less understeer, earlier and faster acceleration when exiting corners, and particularly precise and agile handling.
