The all-new Trailblazer has a character of its own, bringing a bold and expressive look to the segment, and a new level of personalization. The Trailblazer’s exterior styling, which follows in the theme set by the Chevy Blazer, features Chevy’s signature dual-port grille, which gives its face a multilayered, dimensional appearance. The accent bar is integrated with the headlamps, helping to visually widen its stance, while a simulated front skidplate adds a sense of strength. ACTIV trim Trailblazers feature a new interpretation of the signature dual-port grille, with a larger opening for a more rugged look. The RS trim features a performance-inspired mesh grille with black Chevy bowtie and unique front splitter elements to define its sporty demeanor. The side profile includes taut bodyside lines, a sleek roofline and a bold hood shape to accentuate the Trailblazer’s youthful character. RS and ACTIV trim models boost the visual appeal with standard two-tone roofs. Large, wraparound taillamps seamlessly span the liftgate and bodyside, which adds to the visual width of the Trailblazer, providing a more planted look.

Like all Hyundai N models, the compact lifestyle SUV combines sporty driving dynamics with a balanced suitability for everyday use. The interplay of an SUV body with particularly dynamic driving characteristics makes the Hyundai KONA N stand out as the first SUV in the Hyundai N family. Because the Hyundai KONA N adds the versatility of an SUV to the driving fun of a ""hot hatch"", i.e. a compact hatchback model with high engine power: Drivers benefit from a powerful engine and, in urban areas, from the compact dimensions and practicality of the lifestyle SUV - there is also exemplary safety equipment. In addition to uncompromising performance, the KONA N offers its customers pleasant driving comfort, intuitive operation and comprehensive safety. The youngest member of the N family has a 280 PS / 206 kW 2.0 T-GDI engine with turbocharger and direct fuel injection. The decidedly sporty design of the ""Hot SUV"" fits in with this. Various details inspired by motorsport contribute to the dynamic driving experience, while the new eight-speed N DCT dual clutch transmission supports the special high-performance character.
The proceeds from the auction of the 300 SLR Uhlenhaut Coupé serve as seed capital for the global initiative. Mercedes-Benz is committed to investing additional resources in the coming years. The “Mercedes Benz Fund” will be divided into two sub-categories: University Scholarships in order to connect, educate and encourage students to realize/conduct research on environmental science projects and School Scholarships focussing on pupils to realize local environmental projects in their communities. The programme funds will be directed to individuals who otherwise do not have the financial means for their projects and career paths. The programme will go beyond financially supporting the young people and include extracurricular elements like Mercedes-Benz mentorships opening up new career prospects. The “Mercedes Benz Fund” will be jointly developed with and managed by an experienced partner which is currently being evaluated. The detailed set-up and roll-out planning as well as the partner organisation will be announced later this year.
