The Macan T has now been added to the successful Porsche model range. This is the first four-door sports car that will bear this special designation, which was previously the preserve of the 911 and 718 models. The letter T has represented a unique form of dynamic driving at Porsche since the 1960s. It stands for 'Touring' and identifies models that offer an especially dynamic driving experience thanks to precise tuning, exclusive equipment and efficient engines. True to the spirit of the Porsche 911 T from 1968, the new Macan T features an incredibly dynamic setup and a lightweight, two-litre turbo engine, combined with an athletic design and a range of standard equipment that is ideal for a dynamic driving style. This concept positions the Macan T between the Macan and the Macan S. The two-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged engine in the Macan T combines great agility, low weight and a compact design to create a package that offers an ideal balance of weight and performance. Compared with the 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 in the Macan S and GTS models, the powertrain in the Macan T weighs 58.8 kilograms less on the front axle. This gives the vehicle excellent acceleration from a standstill and optimum cornering ability. The Macan T has an output of 195 kW (265 PS) and 400 Nm of torque – characteristics that suit the vehicle design and deliver an exhilarating driving experience. As with most Macan models, the engine is coupled with a quick-shifting seven-speed dual-clutch transmission (PDK) and the Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel-drive system. A broad spread of torque provides responsive acceleration in all driving situations. When fitted with the standard Sport Chrono Package – including the mode switch and Sport Response button on the steering wheel – the Macan T accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 6.2 seconds and reaches a top speed of 232 km/h.

Beauty, technology and a hint of the future come together in Toyota’s new flagship sedan, the all-new 2021 Mirai. Toyota has fully rebooted the Mirai as a premium rear-wheel drive sports-luxury FCEV with striking design, cutting-edge technology, more engaging driving performance and a significantly longer EPA-estimated range rating. The model name, which means future in Japanese, is wholly appropriate, as the 2021 Mirai is powered by the latest evolution of the brand’s advanced fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) powertrain. The body is lower, longer, and wider, with its bolder stance accentuated by standard 19-inch alloy wheels. A more powerful fuel cell system provides a more engaging driving experience than its pioneering forerunner. The rear-wheel drive layout and four-wheel independent suspension deliver a true sports-luxury sedan driving feel, with greater handling agility than before, yet also with a more comfortable ride.
The now standard 10.25-inch or optional 12.3-inch Control Display, newly designed controls on the centre console and the standard sports leather steering wheel with newly arranged multifunction buttons headline an interior brimming with detail refinements. Standard equipment for the new BMW 5 Series Sedan and new BMW 5 Series Touring now also includes automatic climate control with extended features. New additions to the options list include M multifunction seats with a wide range of adjustment, new interior trim strips and seat surfaces in Sensatec perforated trim.
