The Honda Jazz, first sold in Europe in 2002, now exclusively comes with a hybrid engine. Along with its modern drivetrain technology, the latest model is also equipped with the most up-to-date safety equipment, including autonomous emergency braking and an all-new centre-mounted airbag that protects driver and front passenger against injuries in far-side crashes. With 5 stars under its belt, the new Honda Jazz makes a worthy rival to the Toyota Yaris, tested earlier this year.

The Discovery Sport of the 2021 year reaches a new dimension in terms of the digital experience. Because the equipment of the series now includes the ultra-modern Pivi-Infotainment system, which was first seen in the new Land Rover Defender. Pivi is ready for use right from the start - its own battery and a separate data plan ensure immediate operation, and there is almost no need to boot the system. The integrated data connection enables free software updates "over-the-air" at any time, whereby the updates can be started at the right time as required. In this way, users of the Discovery Sport always have the latest data for maps, apps or the vehicle system - without having to visit the workshop. The backbone of the infotainment system is a new, high-performance electronic vehicle architecture. In Discovery Sport there is infotainment either as a Pivi version or - from the Discovery Sport S - as an even more extensive Pivi Pro.
Automobili Lamborghini unveils the Countach LPI 800-4: a futuristic limited edition paying homage to the Countach’s iconic status as a revolutionary design and technology rule-breaker and recreated for the 21st century. Its puristic lines are immediately recognizable from the Countach legacy: the patriarch of modern super sports cars and Lamborghini design. With its aspirated V12 engine combined with Lamborghini’s hybrid supercapacitor technology, the Countach LPI 800-4 retains the inimitable V12 experience and sound from its Longitudinale Posteriore (LP) mounted powerplant combined with the hybrid (I) technology developed for the Sián. Delivering 814 cv as maximum combined power (rounded at 800 in the name) from its aspirated powerplant (780 cv) and electric motor (34 cv) to its permanent four-wheel drive transmission, the LPI 800-4 produces peak Lamborghini performance of 0-100 km/h acceleration in just 2.8 seconds, a 0-200 km/h in 8.6 seconds and a top speed of 355 km/h.
