The new 500X Sport builds on its classic Italian design with a youthful, sporty appearance that offers even more customized features on top of an advanced, fuel-efficient turbocharged engine. Harold Klemm, Product Manager, highlights some of the great features of the 500X Sport.
The new Lexus LC 500 Convertible Highlights
The convertible combines the elegant silhouette and driving dynamics of the coupe with open-top driving pleasure. While the coupe, inspired by the LFA super sports car, embodies above all design and performance, the convertible appeals to all the senses. Open-air enjoyment at the push of a button makes the driver feel even more connected - with the vehicle, the road and the surroundings. The LC Coupé has also been specifically refined. In both the LC 500h hybrid variant and the LC 500 V8 variant, the coupe offers an even more engaging driving experience - from ride comfort to handling and feedback to multimedia functionality. These modifications have also been incorporated into the convertible.
2022 BWT Alpine F1 Team Launch A522 - Interview with Matt Harman, Technical Director
Van life is booming. Over the past years, Mercedes‑Benz Vans has successfully established itself in all motorhome categories with its base vehicles, and with the new Citan, which has been available to order since mid-September, the brand with the three-pointed star has laid the foundation for further growth. The new Citan allows Mercedes‑Benz Vans to make the most of the versatile possibilities in the increasingly popular micro-camper conversions sector. This will be demonstrated shortly by SORTIMO Switzerland at the Suisse Caravan Salon in Bern, starting on 28 October. SORTIMO Switzerland will be presenting the new Citan with a roof tent and a multifunction box equipped with a kitchen and bed unit at the Mercedes‑Benz exhibition stand. And there are further conversion solutions based on the new Citan on the market, for instance from VanEssa mobilcamping. The increase in popularity of micro-campers has a number of reasons: they are comparatively cheaper in terms of acquisition costs; their often modular conversion concept enables flexible installation and removal; thanks to their compact exterior dimensions they are easy to operate; and their weight of under 3.5 tonnes means they can be driven on a regular category B driving licence. With qualities like these, micro-campers have an increasing fan base, especially among young van lifers.
