Artists and art collectors can now pay for a Polestar 1 with works of art. Swedish car maker Polestar is known for breaking new ground in the auto industry. The brand is now introducing an additional option to purchase Polestar's Halo hybrid vehicle before it ends production later this year. Interested parties can exchange the 155,000 euro strictly limited vehicle, which is already traded as a collector's item, for art that is in their possession.
Character head - the new SsangYong Korando
The fourth model generation of the Korando has matured into a strong challenger in the popular compact SUV segment. Its expressive design conveys a powerful presence, and high-quality materials in the interior - a new 10.25-inch digital instrument panel with variable displays, a 9.2-inch touchscreen in the center console and atmospheric ambient lighting - create a progressive and warm atmosphere at the same time. Inside, the new Korando offers generous space for up to five passengers thanks to the wheelbase that has grown to 2.68 meters. At 551 liters, the trunk volume is very well in line with the competition; the two-level load compartment floor allows particularly easy loading and unloading. The tailgate opens electrically and automatically if required. Further equipment highlights: the heated and ventilated front seats with eight electric seat adjustment for the driver, full LED headlights and smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The comprehensive range of camera and radar-based “Deep Control” safety systems supports the driver in recognizing potential dangers and in mastering critical driving situations. The new intelligent adaptive cruise control ensures more driving comfort and safety, which, in addition to automatic acceleration and braking, keeps the vehicle in the middle of the lane with gentle steering interventions and thus enables a semi-autonomous driving experience according to autonomy level 2.5
On the way towards electrification, the designers took on the challenge of transferring the new spindle design to the RX. The integration of the radiator grille in the front end has been optimized. It conveys a feeling of electrified power and contributes to the low visual center of gravity. More compact and sharper headlights, air intakes and a wider track (+ 15 mm) also underline the sovereign and self-confident look. The longer bonnet, a 60 mm longer wheelbase and the 10 mm lower roof line all contribute to the striking look and a slimmer line overall. The characteristic black rear pillar - the so-called "floating roof" that gives the vehicle a coupe-like appearance - now appears more three-dimensional, while the characteristic rising lower side line and the large 21-inch wheels make the RX appear even more dynamic. The four-projector LED headlights are now slimmer and sharper and positioned more horizontally. Their design, accentuated by the L-shaped daytime running lights, ensures a powerful look. At the rear, the light bar, which extends the full width of the vehicle, emphasizes the iconic shape of the RX, while the wider track (+ 40 mm) reinforces its presence on the road. The new LEXUS lettering on the tailgate ensures a clear and modern appearance.
