The new CUPRA Formentor VZ5 - The interior design
The elegant color scheme of the exterior is continued in the interior. Upon entering, occupants of the new CUPRA Formentor VZ5 are immediately enveloped by high-quality materials: Brushed dark aluminum and copper-colored accents make the interior look modern and contemporary. The low-slung CUPBucket seats - available in either petrol blue or black leather - maximize available space and offer a more ergonomic, sporty seating position. In addition, the CUPRA Formentor VZ5 will also be available with an exclusive interior featuring modern patterns in Dinamica Black color, with a copper-colored background and rounded off by brown perforated Nappa leather seats. Naturally, the interior is perfectly matched to the exclusive Taiga Gray exterior color. For the driver, the modern interior holds the latest technical achievements: from the grip of the steering wheel and the individual setting options of the Digital Cockpit to the centrally placed 12-inch touchscreen of the infotainment system, the new CUPRA Formentor VZ5 offers a range of functionality and connectivity that can be intuitively operated with just a few buttons.
Twelve years ago, Porsche introduced the first GTS version of the 911. Now, a new generation of the popular sports car model is being launched – more powerful and visually distinctive, and with better driving dynamics than ever. Its six-cylinder boxer engine delivers 353 kW: Fuel consumption combined 11.4 – 10.4 l/100 km, CO2 emissions combined 259 – 236 g/km), which is 22 kW (30 PS) more than the current 911 Carrera S and the previous 911 GTS. An eight-speed Porsche dual-clutch transmission (PDK) or a seven-speed manual, as well as GTS-specific suspension with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), and the high-performance braking system from the 911 Turbo, ensure the superior transmission of longitudinal and lateral forces. Driving dynamics will be further improved with the Lightweight Design package, which will be available for the first time for the GTS from November 2021 and saves up to 25 kilograms.
Following on from the six‑cylinder models, the Mercedes‑AMG GT 63 4MATIC+ and the Mercedes‑AMG GT 63 S 4MATIC+ now also receive a technical and visual upgrade. In addition to design modifications, these include the AMG RIDE CONTROL+ suspension, which is fitted as standard on the V8 models. With the facelift, customers have an extended choice of equipment details at their disposal. This allows them to adapt their desired model even more specifically to their personal requirements. A wider range of wheels, upholstery, trim and exterior colours offer more customisation options. As with the first performance hybrid from Mercedes‑AMG, the GT 63 S E PERFORMANCE , the attractive model range is rounded off by two exclusive editions. The new models can be ordered immediately at a base price starting at 158,162.90 euros. The market launch will take place in Europe from April 2022.
