In combination with the 12.3-inch Interactive Driver Display†, New Discovery provides high-definition 3D mapping within the instrumentation, leaving the central touchscreen free to control other applications. The high-resolution digital instruments can be configured to show a pair of conventional dials, full-screen 3D navigation guidance or a combination of the two, allowing drivers to customise the view to suit their preference. In addition, customers have the option of a full-colour Head-Up Display, putting high-resolution driving information directly into the driver’s eyeline, removing the need to look away from the road ahead. Smartphone integration is also simple, thanks to Apple CarPlay, while the advanced Bluetooth technology can connect two smartphones simultaneously. Android Auto is also available as standard, as well as wireless charging with signal boosting technology.
McLaren GT makes its dynamic global debut
"The McLaren of Grand Tourers - McLaren's modern interpretation of the classic GT - was unveiled online on May 15. The super-lightweight yet extremely comfortable McLaren GT is powered by a 620hp 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that delivers supercar performance. It accelerates from 0-100km/h in 3.2 seconds to 326km/h and can carry up to 570 liters of luggage - enough for a grand tour for two. The McLaren GT also impresses inside with luxurious interior options such as Nappa leather, softgrain leather or Alcantara® and seats unique to the McLaren GT and designed for long-distance comfort. The luggage compartment can also be trimmed with SuperFabric®, engineered to resist stains, cuts, nicks and scratches, as well as being breathable, easy to clean and quick to dry. The McLaren GT's interior also features hidden ambient lighting that only illuminates after dark and the option of electrochromic glazing to accentuate the ambience of the interior, which features turned and knurled aluminum switches and controls."
The Tiguan was given an update back in autumn 2020 and now it is the turn of the long-wheelbase version: revised design, new control and assist systems, new premium features such as interactive IQ.LIGHT LED matrix headlights and touch panels to control the standard automatic air conditioner take the Tiguan Allspace to the next level. Currently, more than every second Tiguan (55 percent) that rolls off the production line worldwide has a long wheelbase. The XL version of the Tiguan Allspace can, upon request, be fitted to become an SUV with seven seats or boast 1,920 litres of storage space. Pre-sales start in the next few weeks. In Germany, it is available in the new specification packages Life, Elegance and R-Line.
Following the Audi prologue design study, which offered a preview of the design language of the subsequent full-size class models as a show car in 2014, the e-tron GT constitutes the next evolutionary stage of the Audi design language. As a gran turismo, it fascinates with its sculptural design. What applies for the current full-size class models applies here, too: Proportions are the foundation of good design. In other words: a long wheelbase, wide track, large wheels, and a flat silhouette. The e-tron GT has precisely these ideal proportions. Its design language is the starting point for the design of future electric models from Audi – they will have a significantly more flowing exterior design than today’s models. As is always the case at Audi, the design is not an end in itself but rather the connection between form and function: In line with electric mobility, the design of the e-tron GT,enables sophisticated aerodynamics – aesthetics thus also arise from efficiency. The e-tron GT deliberately adopts established design elements of the e-tron, the first electric car from Audi, and refines them in a targeted manner. These elements include the strongly modeled insert above the door sill trims. It emphasizes the battery pack in the center of the vehicle as the car’s powerhouse.
