Celebrating its world premiere on April 19th, the new EQS SUV will be the first all-electric luxury SUV and the third model based on Mercedes-Benz’s dedicated electric vehicle architecture. With a luxurious interior it is set to redefine an entire segment. Its interior combines the progressive design, refinement and comfort that customers love about the EQS sedan with the space and versatility of the popular large-SUV concept. The look-and-feel is a sumptuous fusion of digital luxury and innovative new trim elements, while the so-called “purpose design” of the electric-vehicle architecture delivers exceptionally generous SUV interior dimensions. Paired with the optional third-row seating and electrically adjustable second row, this offers a level of flexibility to fit the full breadth of customer needs with luxury and style. The interior design pursues a consistent vision of digitalisation, expressed most impressively by the optional MBUX Hyperscreen, first launched in the EQS sedan. This 56-inch curved screen sweeps nearly the entire width of the vehicle cabin. The MBUX Hyperscreen includes the instrument cluster, infotainment and passenger display in a seamless design. This blends perfectly with the extreme proportions of the band above it incorporating the distinctive air-conditioning vents, and the seemingly free-floating centre console below.

The upgraded Rio pairs an updated exterior and interior design with 'big car' safety and infotainment technologies.

The all-new HR-V delivers a unique and responsive driving experience, with exceptional efficiency delivered by Honda’s powerful and efficient two-motor e:HEV powertrain – featured as standard for the first time on a HR-V. The next-generation of the brand’s popular compact SUV offers class-leading space, comfort and utility, as well as advanced safety and technology features, all within a bold and sleek coupe-inspired form. Available in Europe from late 2021, the new HR-V is the latest model in Honda’s line-up to wear the e:HEV (hybrid electric vehicle) badge, following the refreshed CR-V and all-new Jazz that launched in 2020. It expands Honda’s electrified line up as the brand moves further towards its goal of electrifying all of its European mainstream models by 2022. The next-generation hybrid-only HR-V is the culmination of an extensive review of modern consumer attitudes. Having evaluated how today’s active, connected population identifies and selects high value products, Honda developed the HR-V not only as an all-new compact SUV, but as a consumer product that must appeal through desirability, functionality and usability.
Electric cars are quiet, clean and dynamic - but do they offer the same level of safety as a classic four-wheel drive vehicle on a slippery road surface? The Volvo XC40 is perfect for answering this question. With the premium compact SUV, the customer can choose between a wide variety of engines and drive concepts: combustion, mild and plug-in hybrids as well as a fully electric version, front-wheel drive, mechanical all-wheel drive and, with the Pure Electric model, all-wheel drive by means of electric motors on the front and rear axles. The Volvo XC40 is the latest addition to the model range and has risen from scratch to number two in the brand's internal sales ranking. It combines typical SUV advantages such as a raised seating position and good space with an attractive lifestyle appearance, high functionality - and a versatile range of drives. The series underlines its pioneering role in the field of electrification: The Volvo XC40 Recharge P8 AWD is the brand's first fully electric model.
