With the all-new Aygo X, Toyota is introducing an exceptional crossover vehicle for the A segment. Developed, designed and built in Europe, it precisely meets the wishes and needs of local customers from urban centers and the surrounding area: The new Aygo X is compact and extremely manoeuvrable, combines advanced technologies with economically low operating costs and arouses emotions. The latest compact model in the Toyota product family is based on the successful GA-B platform. As a key element of the Toyota Global New Architecture (TNGA), it celebrated its world premiere with the current Yaris generation - the Car of the Year 2021 in Europe - and also provides the foundation for the Yaris Cross. In order for the new Aygo X to establish itself as the best offer in its class, Toyota researched the contemporary demands on a city vehicle at an early stage through detailed market research. The result: European customers expect a car with a modern design that combines a strong appearance with small external dimensions.

With technology derived directly from Formula 1, the latest generation of the Mercedes‑AMG C 43 4MATIC sets new standards for innovative drive solutions both as a Saloon and as an Estate. Following its premiere in the Mercedes-AMG SL 43, the AMG 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, the world's first series-production unit to feature an electric exhaust gas turbocharger, is now also being used in the C-Class. The new form of turbocharging guarantees particularly spontaneous response across the entire rev range and thus offers an even more dynamic driving experience. The turbocharger is operated via the 48‑volt electrical system, which also feeds the belt-driven starter-generator (RSG). In the Mercedes‑AMG C 43 4MATIC the unit produces 300 kW (408 hp) and, in certain driving situations, is able to call upon a brief additional boost of 10 kW (14 hp) from the RSG. The standard rear-axle steering, the AMG Performance 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive with rear-biased torque distribution, the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G transmission with wet start-off clutch and the AMG RIDE CONTROL suspension with Adaptive Damping System also contribute to the dynamic driving experience. In keeping with this, brand-specific features in the equipment and appointments as well as in the exterior and interior design emphasise the performance-oriented character of the new Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC.
Another MG novelty that will be launched this month is the new MG ZS EV. A fully updated version of the first model launched by MG in continental Europe that immediately garnered public attention as the first truly affordable 100% electric SUV in the B-segment. Certainly this is where the reason why the ZS EV has already satisfied more than 15,000 customers in its first year on the market, a result with which the model reached the top positions in the UK, Norway, Sweden, the Netherlands and France. However, MG engineers have worked to offer customers greater autonomy and ease of use. The new MG ZS EV features a cooler design, improved performance, significantly longer range and even more technology. The ZS EV will be offered with a choice of two trim levels (Comfort and Luxury) and two battery variants. The 70 kWh Long Range battery will be available from market launch, offering a range of 440km (WLTP) compared to the current model's 263km. At a later stage, a 50.3 kWh Standard Range battery with a range of 320 km (WLTP) will also be available. In addition to the increased battery capacity, the new MG ZS EV can also charge faster. The Long Range version is equipped as standard with an 11 kW three-phase on board. In addition, like the Marvel R Electric, each MG ZS EV is now equipped with the new MG iSMART connectivity system, which also offers a connection via a smartphone app, with which various functions can be controlled remotely.
