Porsche takes the new 911 GT3 off the leash. The seventh edition of this high-performance sports car was also developed in close collaboration with Porsche Motorsport. It transfers pure racing technology into a production model even more consistently than ever before: the double wishbone front axle layout and sophisticated aerodynamics with swan neck rear wing and striking diffuser originate from the successful GT race car 911 RSR and the 375 kW (510 PS) four-litre six-cylinder boxer engine is based on the drivetrain of the 911 GT3 R, tried and tested in endurance racing. The acoustically impressive, high-revving engine is also used practically unchanged in the new 911 GT3 Cup. The result is a brilliant driving machine: efficient and emotional, precise and high-performance – perfect for the circuit and superb for everyday use.
All-New Nissan Qashqai Driving Video
On the exterior, the Qashqai's enhanced body stance is more purposeful, with prominent shoulder lines, an extended wheelbase and imposing 20-inch alloy wheels introduced to Qashqai for the first time. The wheelbase of the car has increased by +20mm with the overall length increasing +35mm. There's a marginal increase in height (+25mm) and width has increased +32mm for improved presence on the road. The front end of the all-new Qashqai sports an enlarged Nissan V-Motion grille, finished in chrome with a secondary pinstripe of satin chrome to emphasise its precision. This is flanked by slim, full LED advanced matrix headlamps with boomerang signature daylight running lights. Super tight gaps between all these details create a premium and precise impression. The forward lighting on new Qashqai has been enhanced from the previous model to feature a slimmer, sharper design thanks to the use of LED technology. From the side, the new Qashqai appears more athletic and dynamic, with a single `fast line' that strikes through the car from the front to the rear, giving a very horizontal presence to the car, but also conveying a sense of dynamism. The new generation Qashqai will be available for the first time with 20-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels (the previous generation offered up to 19-inch wheels). These larger diameter wheels fill the arches and further contribute to the robustness of the car on the road.
The BEV segment is growing rapidly, however it is clear that many new electric models are positioned in the premium class, the more expensive one. At the same time, the demand for modern, safe and practical electric cars that are particularly accessible to the general public is growing. The new MG5 Electric is the perfect answer. It is the world's first fully electric station wagon with a spacious, practical and innovative interior. With a generous 479-liter luggage space, which can be expanded to nearly 1,400 liters with the rear seats folded down, the MG5 Electric offers plenty of efficiency. Additionally, like the Marvel R Electric and ZS EV, the MG5 Electric will be available with the MG iSMART connectivity system which includes the smartphone app as standard. The front wheels are driven by an electric motor that produces 115 kW (156 hp) and 260 Nm of torque. The MG5 Electric is initially offered with a 61.1 kWh battery and a range of 400 km (WLTP). At a later stage, a version with a 50.3 kWh battery will also be available, providing a WLTP range of 320 km. Both battery-powered versions of the 100% electric station wagon will allow fast charging (AC) thanks to the 11 kW three-phase on-board charger. The MG5 Electric will arrive in MG Stores in the first quarter of 2022, with two trim levels (Comfort and Luxury) and starting prices for Europe of less than 30,000 euros. More details on the MG5 Electric, including all pricing, will be released at market launch.
