The 2021 CX-5 is also available as one of Mazda's 100th Anniversary limited edition series, and as a new 'Homura' special edition model.

In addition, the 135 kW/184 PS Skyactiv-D 2.2 diesel engine is now offered with front-wheel drive for the first time.
More and more often, those who buy a new car show that they appreciate the practicality of the automatic transmission, this figure clearly emerges considering segments such as SUVs, crossovers and off-roaders. To facilitate this selection process, Suzuki has decided to complete the offer of the VITARA HYBRID and S-CROSS HYBRID ranges, including automatic versions in the respective price lists, distinguished by the initials AT - Automatic Transmission. Both on VITARA HYBRID and S-CROSS HYBRID, the automatic gearbox can be requested in combination with the STARVIEW set-up, the most complete equipment in the catalog.
Lamborghini Squadra Corse presents the SC20, a unique specimen of an open-top track car type-approved for road use. The SC20 is the second one-off engineered by the motorsport department and designed by Centro Stile in Sant’Agata Bolognese: the car was created following the customer’s wishes, who was involved in the project from the very first drawings by Lamborghini’s designers. The carbon fiber body was polished and slicked down by hand by the Lamborghini aerodynamic engineers to deliver optimal airflow for both performance and the cockpit’s occupants, ensuring comfortable open-air driving even at high speeds. The pronounced front splitter is framed by two fins and the air intakes on the front hood are inspired by those of the Huracán GT3 EVO, while the sculpted body sides reflect the solutions adopted on the Essenza SCV12. The muscular rear is topped by a large carbon fiber wing that can be set in three different positions: Low, Medium and High Load.
