The Continental R was the first all new bodied Bentley coupe since the R-Type Continental of 1952. A total of 1,548 were built, including 158 Mulliner editions, 44 Le Mans Series and 11 Final Series. The Continental R had re-established Bentley as a premium sporting marque in its own right. The Continental R was considered as a classic, and brought into the Final Series with performance related additions and the Mulliner specification. Being a Final Series, our car features branded brake callipers, wide wheel arches and 18" wheels. It also features a turbo boost gauge, chromed bezels, a large red starter button, black lacquer furnishings and winged Bentley motifs in the waistrails.
The BMW iX - Interior design - Focus on people
Generous space, a high-quality mix of materials, newly developed seats with integrated headrests and an exceptionally large panoramic glass roof create a luxurious lounge atmosphere on all five seats in the interior of the BMW iX. The completely newly developed architecture in the interior of the BMW iX makes it possible to present a clear and uncomplicated functionality that is entirely focused on the needs and emotions of the driver and his fellow passengers. The absence of a center tunnel made possible by the drive concept underscores the open feeling of space and creates additional legroom in the front seats and in the rear, as well as space for storage and a center console designed like a high-quality piece of furniture. A reduced design language and clearly structured surfaces bring out the spaciousness of the ambience even more intensively. All displays and controls are reduced to the essentials, further enhancing the impression of a tidy interior that invites relaxation. The technology of the BMW iX is used intelligently and only makes an appearance when it is needed. As a result, it is not perceived as complex but can be used intuitively. The interior design conveys a feeling of safety and familiarity and creates a new kind of bond between the occupants and the vehicle. The principle of Shy Tech is implemented in the interior by, among other things, invisibly integrated loudspeakers, filigree air vents, heated surfaces and the projector of the BMW Head-Up Display, which is very homogeneous and almost invisibly embedded in the instrument panel. The hexagonal steering wheel, a rocker switch for selecting gear ratios and the BMW Curved Display as part of the next generation of the BMW Operating System immediately signal a forward-looking form of driving pleasure.
With the Lexus NX, drivers are on the safe side: Thanks to advanced assistance and safety systems, the premium SUV achieves five out of five possible stars, the best rating in the crash test of the independent testing organization Euro NCAP. The new edition of the successful model, which is available as a full hybrid NX 350h and for the first time as a plug-in hybrid NX 450h+, impresses in all four test areas. In addition to the exceptional vehicle rigidity, which contributes significantly to the high level of passive safety, the third generation of the standard Lexus Safety System + is responsible. Euro NCAP rates these assistance systems with an outstanding 91 percent – a top result. But the new Lexus NX also achieves an excellent 83 percent when it comes to protecting adult occupants, and even 87 percent when protecting children. There are also 83 percent for vulnerable road users.
Since its launch in 2017, the second generation of the Volkswagen Tiguan compact SUV has become the best-selling Volkswagen in America, mirroring its global success. For the 2022 model year, Volkswagen of America will launch a refreshed model with new styling and technology to elevate its compelling blend of utility and performance. On the outside, the Tiguan keeps its iconic look, but sharpens it with a completely revised front end. A distinctive bumper and broad grille are complemented by standard LED headlights and daytime running lights (DRLs), and can be accented further by an available illuminated light line flanking the VW logo. The top two trims feature updated, sporty R-Line® design elements, including bumpers and side sills. The distinctive side profile of the Tiguan remains with its strong character line carrying from the front fender through to the standard LED taillights. Newly centered Tiguan lettering on the rear matches Volkswagen family styling from the Arteon to the all-new Taos. The 2022 Tiguan will be available in eight exterior colors—including new Oryx White and Kings Red Metallic—and every trim level receives new wheels, ranging from 17-inch to 20-inch aluminum-alloy designs.
