SEAT is updating its Ibiza, adding a refreshed exterior look, a revolution to the interior, as well as new levels of connectivity and driver assistant systems. The SEAT Ibiza has been a key pillar of the brand’s success since it was first introduced back in 1984, and after 37 years, five generations and nearly 6 million sales, it’s SEAT’s most successful vehicle to ever roll off the production line. The facelifted fifth generation is aiming to maintain that winning mentality as a key model in its segment in Europe. The world’s become increasingly digitalised and the SEAT Ibiza is ready to be part of the journey, bringing greater intuitiveness, functionality and quality to the interior space, achieved through an improved design language and increased levels of connected technology and new, more elegant materials.
The Audi SQ7 - the exterior design
"S-specific details make the special position of the Audi SQ7 TFSI and the Audi SQ8 TFSI recognizable at first glance. The front presents itself with double louvers in the single frame and a distinctively sculpted blade in the bumper, honeycomb grilles fill the enlarged side air intakes. On the flank, the aluminum-look exterior mirror housings catch the eye, while at the rear a powerfully designed underride guard, a honeycomb grille insert and the four characteristic exhaust tailpipes set the tone. Some add-on parts are finished in silver matt, including the frame of the single frame, which is designed as a wide mask on the SQ8 TFSI. If the customer has ordered the black optics package, the frame is painted black along with other parts."
BMW is leading the luxury segment into a new era that will be shaped by innovations in the fields of sustainability and digitalisation. With the new BMW 7 Series, the world’s most successful manufacturer of premium vehicles is creating forward-looking ways to enjoy driving pleasure, unsurpassed long-distance comfort and a top-end digital experience. Central to this reinterpretation is the BMW i7. The all-electric luxury sedan is a fully integrated member of the model family and clearly demonstrates how an exclusive driving experience and the ultimate feeling of on-board wellbeing can be combined with an unwavering commitment to sustainability. The generation change at the pinnacle of BMW’s model range is wrapped up in a new definition of luxury that focuses on the individual and their personal attitudes, needs and emotions. In addition to presence, elegance and exclusive premium quality, there is a progressive approach characterised by innovations that directly enhance the user experience, wide-ranging connectivity and standard-setting sustainability of the car. In this way, the new BMW 7 Series has been designed to meet the needs of a modern target group that sees itself as committed to meeting challenges in a responsible manner – and one that views personal mobility as a way to experience unique moments in everyday life and on trips away.
With its robust appearance and functional versatility, the new BMW X1 embodies an authentic experience of freedom and independence in day-to-day driving and on longer journeys. The interior’s progressive design and sophisticated ambience, and the much broader selection of standard equipment compared to the outgoing model, serve to underline its deeply embedded premium character. At launch in October 2022, there will initially be a choice of two petrol and two diesel engines. These will link up with a seven-speed Steptronic transmission with double clutch as standard, and their drive power will be channelled to the road via either the front wheels or the BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system, depending on the model. This starting quartet will immediately be followed by the all-electric BMW iX1 xDrive30 as well as by a pair of plug-in hybrid models and another two conventionally powered variants with 48V mild hybrid technology. The new BMW X1 will be built at BMW Group Plant Regensburg, where models with combustion engines, plug-in hybrid systems and all-electric drive will all roll off a single assembly line for the first time. The BMW iX1 will bring the experience of locally emission-free driving pleasure to a vehicle segment enjoying worldwide growth, making it accessible to a very wide target audience. The compact SAV powered by the latest BMW eDrive technology will therefore give a major boost to the accelerated ramp-up of electric mobility. The improvements in sustainability compared to the predecessor model can be partly attributed not just to the wide-ranging electrification measures, but also the increased use of green energy, both for production and in the supply chain, and the greater quantities of secondary raw materials and natural materials used.
