The electrification of the Nissan model range is progressing. The compact crossover Juke with a new hybrid drive can now be ordered at prices starting at 31,090 euros. The advanced electrified powertrain reduces emissions and fuel consumption while also impressing with driving pleasure and direct response. The internal combustion engine in the Juke was specially developed for use in a hybrid system. It delivers 69 kW (94 hp) and develops a maximum torque of 148 Nm. It is supported by an electric motor with 36 kW (49 hp) and a torque of 205 Nm. In addition, the system consists of a 15 kW starter generator, an inverter and a water-cooled 1.2 kWh battery. All in all, the powertrain offers 25 percent more power than the current petrol engine, while reducing fuel consumption by around 40 percent in city driving and up to 20 percent in mixed traffic (figures subject to homologation). The expected fuel consumption of the Juke Hybrid is 5.0 to 5.2 liters per 100 kilometers, which corresponds to CO2 emissions of 114 to 117 grams per kilometer (depending on equipment; consumption and emission values are subject to homologation).
The new Mercedes-Benz C-Class - Silhouette with a special play of light
In the side view, elaborately sculptured surfaces create a unique play of light. The designers, on the other hand, have reduced the lines to a minimum. This makes the so-called catwalk line, i.e. the shoulder line, all the more prominent. In the Estate, the progressive roof line in combination with the sloping rear window underscores a sportiness without functional restrictions. Other features of the sporty, confident appearance are the wide track and the flush wheels (in 17- to 19-inch sizes) with modern designs. The brand-typical radiator grille characterizes the front. All models have a central star, but the design and character of the grille differ in detail. The base model, for example, has a central star with louvers. The Avantgarde model has decorative elements in the louvers and chrome frames around the radiator grille and apron. The distinguishing feature of the AMG Line is the diamond grille with star design in chrome. The design of the rear end is typical of a Mercedes-Benz sedan. At the same time, the high-quality combination rear lamps fascinate with their unmistakable day and night design. For the first time in the C-Class, the lights in the sedan are in two parts, with the lighting functions divided between the sidewall and rear deck lights. Thanks to the precisely designed interior, the claim to special value is also reflected in the details. Optional or line-dependent trim elements in the rear bumper round off the rear view attractively. Three new paint finishes - spectral blue, high-tech silver and opalith white - complete the color palette.
A cult car from the 70's with winking headlights, does that mean anything to you? The R5 of course! Its mischievous look is part of our heritage and the Renault 5 prototype unveiled in January cannot deny its ancestor.

Fiat and Google come together in an exclusive collaboration, known as 500 Hey Google. It is the new special series of the New 500 Family, where Google Assistant technology meets the 500 and its world of coolness, design and iconic style for the first time ever. This has resulted in the creation of the special series that, thanks to the integration of Mopar® Connect services with Google Assistant in the "My Fiat" Action, enables customers to connect to their car even when they are away from it. Using their own voice, the owner can request and receive information on the car and to interact with it. They can do so via their smartphone or the Google Nest Hub, the smart display bundled with the Welcome Kit received when purchasing a car from 500 Family Hey Google, for user-friendly and innovative connectivity that can make what we do every day even easier.
