The new Lexus LS - focus on performance, comfort and noise
With the fifth generation of models introduced in 2018, Lexus has made a big step forward in terms of vehicle development. The current LS is the first vehicle to benefit from the advantages of the GA-L platform: from the outstanding balance of the chassis, the low center of gravity and the significantly increased body rigidity. Further components are the new multi-link suspension and the optimized adaptive variable damper system AVS: A relatively simple nine-stage system became an almost seamless, continuous damper control with 650 levels. The Lexus driving experience is formed from all of these components: a combination of sophistication, comfort and quality that is typical of the Japanese premium brand. The properties of the dampers, which ensure that the unevenness of the road surface are absorbed, are a guarantee of high driving comfort. To further increase comfort, the AVS damper system has new lifting magnets and enlarged flow channels in the control valve. The optimizations also improve driving stability and the feedback from the steering
Following the fully electric MG ZS EV, this is the second model of MG in mainland Europe. The spacious SUV uses pioneering plug-in hybrid technology that combines low consumption and emission levels with optimal driving pleasure.

The new ŠKODA ENYAQ COUPÉ iV makes a statement with its dynamic looks and sporty, elegant lines. It complements the successfully launched ŠKODA ENYAQ iV, adding an even more emotive variant to the range. The ENYAQ COUPÉ RS iV also marks the debut of the brand’s first all-electric member of the sporty RS family. While the roofline gently slopes towards the rear from the B-pillar, the new coupé offers plenty of space in the rear and a boot capacity of 570 l. Just like in the ENYAQ iV, the classic trim levels for the interior have been replaced with the Design Selections. There is a choice of two battery sizes, rear- or all-wheel drive, and four power variants with outputs ranging from 132 kW to 220 kW (RS variant). The outstanding drag coefficient (cd) of 0.234 is even better than that of the ENYAQ iV and, depending on the specification, enables a range of more than 540 km in the WLTP cycle.
