With the new GR86, Toyota is introducing its third model from the GAZOO Racing family to be offered worldwide. Together with the GR Supra and the GR Yaris, the GR86 forms a fascinating trio of thoroughbred sports cars. The extensive experience of the factory team TOYOTA GAZOO Racing flowed directly into its development, whose diverse commitment in the top classes of international motorsport is crowned by numerous victories and championship titles. The new coupe marks the entry into Toyota's GR model range and gives a wider audience access to sporty handling and performance to match. As a logical further development of the predecessor called the GT86, with which Toyota has once again underlined its commitment to sports car construction, the new GR86 is also characterized by the classic configuration of front engine and rear-wheel drive. The engine is still a high-revving four-cylinder boxer, which thanks to a larger displacement can offer a significant increase in output and torque. Further technical modifications to the engine and transmission ensure that this additional potential is reflected in equally powerful acceleration across the entire engine speed range.
The new Ford Puma ST - The Design
"Seven attractive exterior colors - including exclusively for Ford Puma ST - Furious-Green Metallic As exterior colors for the body, in addition to Obsidian-Black Metallic, Dynamic-Blue Metallic, Fantastic-Red Metallic, Frost-White, Fancy-Gray and Magnetic-Gray Metallic, the Furious-Green Metallic, available only for the ST, is available. The high-gloss black finish on the roof, radiator grille frame, exterior mirror housings and rear roof polish serves as another hallmark of the new ST variant. The interior has an equally charismatic appearance - even before you get in, as the factory-folding exterior mirrors project the ST logo onto the underbody when the vehicle is unlocked. Inside, heated Recaro sports seats welcome the driver and front passenger. The seats, made of non-slip Miko Dinamica with an embroidered ST logo, provide excellent support. Ford Performance door sill trim, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with flattened underside and a shift knob with ST badge add further accents. Rounding out the expressive interior are gray stitching on the seats, shift knob cuff and ST-branded floor mats. Just like the other Puma trim versions, the Puma ST has a luggage capacity of 456 liters, which is outstanding in the crossover segment. Then there's the innovative Ford MegaBox. This flexibly usable storage space provides 81 liters of additional volume below the trunk floor, so that the rear of the new Puma ST can accommodate two upright golf bags, for example."
The all-new Trailblazer has a character of its own, bringing a bold and expressive look to the segment, and a new level of personalization. The Trailblazer’s exterior styling, which follows in the theme set by the Chevy Blazer, features Chevy’s signature dual-port grille, which gives its face a multilayered, dimensional appearance. The accent bar is integrated with the headlamps, helping to visually widen its stance, while a simulated front skidplate adds a sense of strength. ACTIV trim Trailblazers feature a new interpretation of the signature dual-port grille, with a larger opening for a more rugged look. The RS trim features a performance-inspired mesh grille with black Chevy bowtie and unique front splitter elements to define its sporty demeanor. The side profile includes taut bodyside lines, a sleek roofline and a bold hood shape to accentuate the Trailblazer’s youthful character. RS and ACTIV trim models boost the visual appeal with standard two-tone roofs. Large, wraparound taillamps seamlessly span the liftgate and bodyside, which adds to the visual width of the Trailblazer, providing a more planted look.
The Taos will offer three trim levels, each available with either front-wheel or 4Motion® all-wheel-drive, all powered by an efficient 1.5-liter turbocharged and direct-injected four-cylinder engine with 158 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. Front-wheel drive models are paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission, while 4Motion models feature a 7-speed DSG® dual-clutch automatic transmission. Designed to slot into the heart of the booming compact SUV market, the Taos features a clean, youthful design tied closely to other Volkswagen SUVs. The standard LED light signature borrows cues from the Atlas Cross Sport, while on SEL models an illuminated LED light bar in the grille reflects the style of the ID.4 electric SUV. Four available wheel choices—from standard 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels to two 18-inch wheel options (machined or black finish) and 19-inch wheels—along with eight available colors offer owners a variety of ways to demonstrate their personal style. The Taos is 175.8 inches long—9.3 inches shorter than the Tiguan—with a wheelbase of 105.9 inches; it is 72.5 inches wide and 64.4 inches tall. Passenger space runs a roomy 99.5 cubic feet—just 1.6 cu. ft. less than the two-row Tiguan—with 28.1 cu. ft. of luggage space behind the second-row seats and 66.3 cu. ft. with the second row folded down. In addition to offering generous cargo space, the Taos offers a comfortable ride for all passengers, with 40.1 inches of legroom in the front and 37.9 in the rear.
