The Land Rover Discovery has been around since 2014. Now the successor of the Freelander is getting a facelift. And in addition to a slightly revised exterior, this includes new engines, new assistance systems and a new infotainment. But the new Discovery Sport has a lot more to offer. What the new one costs, what it cosumes, what updates it has on board and how it drives I explain during my test drive in the new Land Rover Discovery Sport D240 R-DYNAMIC S Source: http://quickcarreview.com
Debut with snowflakes at Fiorano for Giuliano and Marcus. Robert on track in the afternoon - Day 1
Today saw the start of five days of testing at Fiorano for Scuderia Ferrari, with seven drivers involved. The team and three of the Ferrari Driver Academy members were met this morning by temperatures close to freezing and even a few snowflakes falling lightly on the Prancing Horse’s home track. The first to get behind the wheel was Giuliano Alesi, just over 30 years on from his father Jean’s first test with the Scuderia, at the wheel of an F1-90. Giuliano drove out of the pits at a minute after 10, in a 2018 SF71H.
The new Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid is now the most powerful variant in the completely revamped product line, combining a 420 kW (571 PS; Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid models: Fuel consumption combined 2.8 – 2.7 l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined 63 – 62 g/km; electricity consumption combined 22.8 – 21.8 kWh/100 km (as of 10/2020)), four-litre biturbo V8 with a 100 kW (136 PS) electric motor. Its all-electric range has been increased by up to 30 per cent thanks to a new 17.9 kWh battery and optimised driving modes. This also applies to the new Panamera 4 E-Hybrid, where the electric motor is complemented as before by a 243 kW (330 PS; Panamera 4 E-Hybrid models: Fuel consumption combined 2.3 – 2.1 l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined 51 – 47 g/km; electricity consumption combined 18.2 – 17.0 kWh/100 km (as of 10/2020)) 2.9-litre biturbo V6, resulting in a system power output of 340 kW (462 PS). The Panamera portfolio is rounded off by the 4S, which delivers 324 kW (440 PS; Panamera 4S models: Fuel consumption combined 9.2 – 8.8 l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined 210 – 202 g/km (as of 10/2020)) and also benefits from all the optimised features of the latest model enhancement in terms of chassis, design, equipment and infotainment.
The Tonale’s power makes its debut on the road in Tempio Voltiano, the celebrated location of Alessandro Volta’s inventions in the beautiful setting of Lake Como. A symbolic location to highlight the brand’s “metamorphosis”, it was here more than 200 years ago that the Italian scientist created his most famous invention: the battery, the first generator of dynamic electricity. A scientific landmark in modern history, this instrument allows our technological civilization to function. A precursor to the concept of sustainability, Alessandro Volta obsessively studied nature in order to replicate it for the benefit of humanity. This innovative approach, which is fully embraced by Alfa Romeo, demonstrates how, with its “mechanical creations”, sustainable technological development must imitate nature and take inspiration from it in order to adapt and live in harmony with it. Therefore, the Italian brand’s latest chapter couldn’t help but begin in Tempio Voltiano. With Tonale, Alfa Romeo has radically evolved and launched itself into a new, technological, sustainable and electrified era. The Tonale’s road capabilities are clear. The technology and connectivity on board make it the most technological Alfa Romeo to date. It combines quality and attention-to-detail with dynamic features to reinvent sportiness in the 21st century.
