With technology derived directly from Formula 1, the latest generation of the Mercedes‑AMG C 43 4MATIC sets new standards for innovative drive solutions both as a Saloon and as an Estate. Following its premiere in the Mercedes-AMG SL 43, the AMG 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, the world's first series-production unit to feature an electric exhaust gas turbocharger, is now also being used in the C-Class. The new form of turbocharging guarantees particularly spontaneous response across the entire rev range and thus offers an even more dynamic driving experience. The turbocharger is operated via the 48-volt electrical system, which also feeds the belt-driven starter-generator (RSG). In the Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC the unit produces 300 kW (408 hp) and, in certain driving situations, is able to call upon a brief additional boost of 10 kW (14 hp) from the RSG. The standard rear-axle steering, the AMG Performance 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive with rear-biased torque distribution, the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G transmission with wet start-off clutch and the AMG RIDE CONTROL suspension with Adaptive Damping System also contribute to the dynamic driving experience. In keeping with this, brand-specific features in the equipment and appointments as well as in the exterior and interior design emphasise the performance-oriented character of the new Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC.

The Impreza exterior receives an updated front bumper cover and grille design, and the rear combination light design has been refined for 5-door models. Ocean Blue Pearl has been added to the color palette. The 2020 Impreza comes standard with legendary Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder SUBARU BOXER® engine with direct fuel injection that produces 152-horsepower and 145 lb.-ft. of torque. Available on all trim levels is the Lineartronic CVT (continuously variable transmission) which, on Premium and above, features a 7-speed manual mode function with steering wheel paddle shifters that allows the driver to control the transmission via seven pre-set ratios. The 2020 Impreza achieves up to 36 highway MPG and more than 450 miles on a full tank, making it one of the most fuel-efficient all-wheel-drive vehicles sold in the U.S.
The appearance and standard equipment of the BMW X4 M40i and BMW X4 M40d are based on the corresponding X3 models and, like these, have typical BMW M insignia such as the specific BMW M kidney grille with chrome frame, double kidney grille slats in black high-gloss and the M logo as well as the aerodynamically optimized M exterior mirrors in high-gloss black. The rear apron with the anvil-shaped insert is fitted with air curtain panels in high-gloss black. Similar to the BMW X3 M40i and BMW X3 M40d, the free-form tailpipe trims are in black chrome with the two "teeth" and the tires.
The BEV segment is growing rapidly, however it is clear that many new electric models are positioned in the premium class, the more expensive one. At the same time, the demand for modern, safe and practical electric cars that are particularly accessible to the general public is growing. The new MG5 Electric is the perfect answer. It is the world's first fully electric station wagon with a spacious, practical and innovative interior. With a generous 479-liter luggage space, which can be expanded to nearly 1,400 liters with the rear seats folded down, the MG5 Electric offers plenty of efficiency. Additionally, like the Marvel R Electric and ZS EV, the MG5 Electric will be available with the MG iSMART connectivity system which includes the smartphone app as standard. The front wheels are driven by an electric motor that produces 115 kW (156 hp) and 260 Nm of torque. The MG5 Electric is initially offered with a 61.1 kWh battery and a range of 400 km (WLTP). At a later stage, a version with a 50.3 kWh battery will also be available, providing a WLTP range of 320 km. Both battery-powered versions of the 100% electric station wagon will allow fast charging (AC) thanks to the 11 kW three-phase on-board charger. The MG5 Electric will arrive in MG Stores in the first quarter of 2022, with two trim levels (Comfort and Luxury) and starting prices for Europe of less than 30,000 euros. More details on the MG5 Electric, including all pricing, will be released at market launch.
