The BMW iX is one of the first models from BMW to already use the latest generation of the iDrive display and operating system. The new iDrive not only enables a particularly intense interaction between driver and vehicle, but also a greater personalisation of the driving experience with the new My Modes. They create unique moments that result from a combination of vehicle characteristics and interior atmosphere tailored to the particular situation. On the occasion of CES 2022, BMW will now for the first time showcase further variants of the overall user experience created in this way in the interior. With My Modes Expressive and Relax, in the future BMW customers will have additional ways of adapting the vehicle settings to the particular situation and mood.
With a time of 7: 40.748 minutes, the new Audi RS 3 sedan is the fastest compact model on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife. In June, Frank Stippler, racing and development driver Audi Sport improved the previous lap record in this class by 4.64 seconds. Above all, the torque splitter with its fully variable torque distribution on the rear axle contributed to the successful record drive - Vorsprung durch Technik.

It adapts each damper individually and permanently to the road conditions, the driving situation and the mode selected in Audi drive select. Two setups for different racetracks are stored in the RS Performance mode - on the one hand, a comfortable set-up for uneven tracks such as the Nordschleife, where it is important to minimize large vertical excitations while maintaining high lateral dynamics, and on the other hand, a sporty setup for flat racetracks such as the Hockenheimring. With the ceramic brake system and the adaptive chassis, the legendary five-cylinder high-performance engine in the RS 31 delivers a top speed of 290 km / h - the best value in the segment. And even with an acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.8 seconds, the RS 3 is top of the class.
