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.
Volvo XC40 - Comparison of different drive concepts
Electric cars are quiet, clean and dynamic - but do they also offer the same safety on snow-slippery roads as a classic all-wheel drive vehicle? The Volvo XC40 is perfect for answering this question. With the premium compact SUV, customers can choose between a wide variety of engines and drive concepts: Internal combustion, mild and plug-in hybrids as well as an all-electric variant, front-wheel drive, mechanical all-wheel drive and, in the Pure Electric model, all-wheel drive using electric motors on the front and rear axles.
The ID.4’s exterior has athletic proportions for an ultra-modern appearance. Its clear, flowing design is inspired by nature and guarantees very good aerodynamics with a drag coefficient of 0.28.Its basic version already features headlights that are almost completely equipped with light-emitting diodes while its tail light clusters have been fully equipped with this technology. As the top-of-the-range version, interactive IQ.Light LED matrix headlights are even more progressive: they welcome drivers with swivelling lens modules and generate an intelligently controlled main beam. These headlights have been paired with the new 3D LED tail light clusters. Their tail light is particularly homogeneous and lights up in an intensive red. The large wheels with a diameter of up to 21 inches underline the vehicle’s character.
The design of the ID.4 GTX underscores its extraordinary character, combining driving fun with a robust look. The familiar light strip has been combined with powerful, dynamic elements – in particular, the three honeycomb elements that form the daytime running lights. They convey the vehicle’s sporty character even when it is stationary and, at the same time, establish a connection to the Golf GTI. Alongside the newly designed bumpers, the eye-catching elements at the rear include the 3D LED tail light cluster with brake lights that form an X.
