Ingrained with Suzuki’s design heritage, including a slit-like C-pillar inherited from the first generation Cervo (SC100), blacked out A- and B- pillars, bumper garnish and clamshell bonnet, the Ignis utilises a simple design with a familiar, lovable expression, characterised by its unique headlights, black extended wheel arches*, and robust shoulders. The facelift model retains these iconic features, while adding a new Suzuki SUV-style 5-spoke front grille, along with front and rear bumpers featuring trapezoid shape silver under garnishes, amplifying the overall SUV character and unique style. Complementing the characteristic styling of the exterior, the interior of the Ignis was designed with futuristic urban styling and sweeping horizontal lines that convey breadth and a feeling of space. This stylish urban taste has been further enhanced in the facelift model, with new Lazuli Medium Blue Pearl and Medium Grey Metallic accents matched to grey or blue seat upholsteries. The instrument panel, featuring a newly designed meter cluster, has been updated with a contrast of black and white that is simple in composition but leaves a bold impression.
The new Ford Puma ST - Bold, eye-catching styling
"The Puma's already sporty styling with features like the sloping roofline silhouette and pronounced wheel arches naturally lent itself to the Puma ST's design made even more extreme to combine form and function. The Puma ST offers Magnetite or machined metal finishes for the standard 19'' alloy wheels, and six exterior hues that include Agate Black, Desert Island Blue, Fantastic Red, Frozen White, Magnetic and bold, as well as the exclusive Mean Green. In addition, a Gloss Black finish for the roof, front grille surrounds, mirror caps and rear roof spoiler are all standard, making the model even easier to identify/recognize. While the interior is equally charismatic, the excitement is immediate from the moment the doors are unlocked when the standard power-folding exterior mirrors project the ST logo onto the ground. Inside, heated and upholstered Recaro sport seats - embossed with the ST logo and trimmed in Miko Dinamica non-slip material - hold the driver and front passenger firmly in place. Also featured are Ford Performance skid plates, flat-bottom leather steering wheel and ST shift knob. The seats, shift lever cover and ST badged floor mats are finished with Metal Grey stitching."
With the luxury saloon EQS and the sporty executive saloon EQE, Mercedes-Benz has entered a new, all-electric era in the upper market segments as well. The EQS SUV, the third model series with this architecture developed for electric vehicles, will soon follow. The SUV offers plenty of space, comfort and connectivity for up to seven passengers in its avant-garde, luxurious interior. Thanks to powerful electric motors, responsive 4MATIC all-wheel drive and an intelligent OFFROAD driving mode, the EQS SUV is also capable of tackling light terrain with ease. The new EQS SUV shares the long wheelbase (3210 millimetres) with the EQS Saloon, but is over 20 centimetres higher. The dimensions in detail: 5125/1959/1718 millimetres (length/width/height). The interior dimensions benefit from these generous SUV dimensions and from the advantages of the purpose design tailored to the electric platform. The second row of seats can be electrically adjusted as standard. Up to four golf bags fit in the boot. A third row of seats with two additional individual seats and extensive comfort features for all passengers is available as an option.
The use of powertrain from the forthcoming JUKE Hybrid reflects both the additional performance it offers in the production version, as well as the improvements to its efficiency and emissions. The JUKE Hybrid powertrain consists of a new generation, state-of-the-art Nissan internal combustion engine specifically developed for working in a hybrid powertrain application. It produces 69kW (94hp) and 148Nm of torque. On the electric side, the main electric motor produces 36kW (49hp) and 205Nm of torque, while there is a 15kW contribution from a high voltage starter/generator, all of which is fed by a 1.2kWh water-cooled battery. The net result is a powertrain providing 25% more power than the current petrol engine option, with a fuel consumption reduction of approximately 40% in the urban cycle, and up to 20% combined.
