The 2022 Pathfinder is all-new from the ground-up. Every inch of the vehicle was carefully designed to convey a sense of strength and capability with a strong front face, wide stance, blister fenders and a shorter front overhang (versus the previous design). The larger design of the new face of Pathfinder conveys size and strength which, along with larger tires, gives it an authentic, rugged SUV look. Distinctive Nissan signature features are integrated into the new Pathfinder design, such as the V-motion grille with a three-slot grille incorporated as an homage to the original Pathfinder, C-shaped headlights and floating roofline. Standard LED headlights include slim upper Daytime Running Lights, and the C-pillar has a structural SUV look that allows use of two-tone paint – a first for Pathfinder. Strong "U-shaped" highlights fuse the powerful fender blisters together, providing a tough, muscled look. In the rear, the wide-aspect LED taillights are slimmer than the previous design. The "boxed out" liftgate returns to the boldness of the first Pathfinder, including the oversized, satin chrome PATHFINDER name. Even the new aluminum-alloy wheel designs have a machined, tool-like seriousness to them.
High efficiency and great driving pleasure - The Audi Q3 as a plug-in hybrid
The combination of an electric driving experience, easy charging and high everyday practicality makes Audi's plug-in hybrid models particularly interesting. The Q3 45 TFSI e and the Q3 Sportback 45 TFSI e complete the range of plug-in hybrids that Audi has launched since mid-2019. At the same time, the two compact SUVs represent the entry into the world of electrified Q models. The two Q3 models use a 1.4 TFSI as their combustion engine. The four-cylinder engine produces 110 kW (150 hp). The drive is completed by a permanently excited synchronous machine (PSM) that delivers 85 kW of power. Together with the disconnect clutch, the PSM is integrated into the housing of the six-speed S tronic. This dual-clutch transmission, which transmits power to the front wheels, integrates an electric oil pump. It ensures the supply and thus the function of the clutches and gear selection even when the TFSI engine is switched off.
The all-electric Macan is ready for the road: after initial testing on the proving grounds of the Porsche Development Centre in Weissach, the well-camouflaged next-generation prototypes of the compact SUV are now heading outside Porsche premises for the first time.
Born from the cooperation between Renault's French and Indian Design divisions, the Kiger show car is an SUV with an adventurous look exuding an attractive energy that catches both the eye and the mind. With its DNA it is predestined for the urban jungle as well as the great outdoors. At first glance, the Kiger show car stands out with its sculpted bonnet, slender windscreen and a semi-floating roof with a roof rack. On both sides, the tapered mirrors have been designed like airplane wings. At the rear, the roof drop is topped by a spoiler, giving the vehicle a very airy look. The lower section is more muscular and stockier, resting on four 19-inch wheels framed by large square arches that give strength to the exterior styling. The 210-mm ground clearance with reinforced lower flaps and prominent shoulders confirm the escape spirit of the SUV. The sporty side is accentuated by the dual centrally located exhaust tailpipes and the honeycomb patterns distributed around the vehicle.
