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." "
July 2022 sees the introduction of new vehicle safety legislation, mandating the fitment of important safety systems such as autonomous braking and speed assistance on new vehicle types. And it will be a busy one for Euro NCAP too, in its 25th year, with many cars lined up for testing and with plans for a new roadmap to set the course for safety for the next decade. In the meantime, car manufacturers continue to recognise the value which consumers and fleet operators place on a good Euro NCAP rating. Volkswagen gave the popular Polo a solid facelift, which, in addition to extra style, especially added more technology. Thanks to the addition of new centre airbags and more capable crash avoidance systems, the facelifted Polo cleared the hurdle for a 2022 five-star rating.
BMW M GmbH is expanding its ranks of ultra-sporty CS models with the introduction of the BMW M5 CS. The limited-run, exclusive special-edition model treats four people to an extraordinary driving experience and blends standout performance attributes with an exclusive and luxurious appearance. The 4.4-litre V8 engine with 467 kW/635 hp makes the BMW M5 CS the most powerful car in the history of BMW M. Standard features include the eight-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic and the M xDrive all-wheel-drive system, which also offers a 2WD mode for pure rear-wheel drive. Rigorously applied lightweight design enables a weight saving of some 70 kilograms over the BMW M5 Competition. With retuned bearing springs at the front and rear axle and further refined damper control, the chassis has been adapted to the lower vehicle weight and the increased performance potential of the standard mixed-size Pirelli P Zero Corsa track tyres (front: 275/35 R 20, rear: 285/35 R 20).
