A breath of fresh air for the compact hybrid vehicle segment: the new SEAT Leon e-HYBRID is now available. The drive of the Spanish compact takes over the combination of a highly efficient gasoline internal combustion engine and a powerful electric motor. The new SEAT Leon e-HYBRID can travel up to 72 kilometers purely electrically and can even be recharged from a standard 230-volt socket. Taking the current e-mobility premium into account, prices start at 27,085 euros. More and more buyers are deliberately choosing a vehicle with a hybrid drive. With good reason: while the vehicle is quietly driven around the city with no local emissions and with no local emissions, both engines together become a real powerhouse at higher speeds or when overtaking maneuvers: in the SEAT Leon e-HYBRID, they jointly produce up to 150 kW ( 204 PS), which accelerate the vehicle from standstill to 100 km / h and further up to 220 km / h in 7.4 seconds. A 6-speed dual clutch transmission ensures a high level of comfort and efficient propulsion.

The PEUGEOT 3008 harmonizes a sporty, striking design with compact dimensions and a spacious interior. The manoeuvrable vehicle is therefore also ideally suited for city traffic. In addition, the PEUGEOT 3008 is equipped with useful functions that ensure driving pleasure and safety: the Active Safety Brake Plus emergency braking assistant (standard from the GT equipment variant) is designed to brake automatically, especially at night and in traffic with cyclists Prevent collisions. The Lane Positioning Assistant, which comes as standard in combination with the ACC automatic cruise control from the GT equipment variant, ensures that the vehicle stays within the lane markings. In the interior, smartphone apps can be displayed on the touchscreen in the driver's compartment using the mirror screen function. With the inductive charging station (standard from GT) the mobile phone can be charged wirelessly and the TomTom® navigation system (standard from Allure) provides real-time information about the current traffic situation.
Porsche takes the new 911 GT3 off the leash. The seventh edition of this high-performance sports car was also developed in close collaboration with Porsche Motorsport. It transfers pure racing technology into a production model even more consistently than ever before: the double wishbone front axle layout and sophisticated aerodynamics with swan neck rear wing and striking diffuser originate from the successful GT race car 911 RSR and the 375 kW (510 PS) four-litre six-cylinder boxer engine is based on the drivetrain of the 911 GT3 R, tried and tested in endurance racing. The acoustically impressive, high-revving engine is also used practically unchanged in the new 911 GT3 Cup. The result is a brilliant driving machine: efficient and emotional, precise and high-performance – perfect for the circuit and superb for everyday use.
Mazda is making only minor changes to the CX-5 for 2020. The company's i-Activsense suite of driver-assistance features is now standard across the lineup and includes automated emergency braking, pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, automatic high-beam headlamps, and more. All models receive a new key fob we expect to match that of the new Mazda 3 sedan and hatchback, as well as Mazda's newly updated fonts on interior switches and exterior badging. Grand Touring Reserve and Signature models receive a new 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen display. The CX-5's standard 187-hp four-cylinder engine has great throttle response when pulling away from stoplights or hustling around town, so it feels quicker than it actually is. It's at higher speeds, such as when trying to pass or merge onto the freeway, that it feels underpowered. The 250-hp turbocharged version we tested provided much quicker acceleration, shooting from zero to 60 mph in 6.2 seconds. While the turbo engine also pairs with a snappy six-speed automatic transmission, it can only be had with all-wheel drive.
