The updated Trafic also impresses with its further optimized functionality. This is evidenced by details such as the electrically folding exterior mirrors and a large number of storage spaces in the interior. Thanks to new storage compartments and storage areas, the new best-in-class value of up to 88 liters of storage space is now available in the interior, 54 liters of which are under the passenger seat alone. As part of the facelift, Renault is also equipping the Trafic with the EASY LINK online multimedia and navigation system. The system is extremely user-friendly and has an 8.0-inch (20.3-centimeter) touchscreen and enables smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The updated Trafic also marks a major step forward in terms of driver assistance systems. The adaptive cruise control, high beam assistant, lane departure warning and blind spot warning will be available for the transporter in the future. Another new feature for the model is traffic sign recognition with a speed warning. The trailer stability control, front, rear and side parking aids as well as the reversing camera complete the list of assistance systems. Four economical and high-torque turbo diesel engines are available for the Trafic, covering the power range from 110 to 170 hp and meeting the criteria of the Euro 6d-Full emissions standard. All four engines have automatic start-stop and are combined with the manual switch box. The Blue dCi 150 and Blue dCi 170 are also optionally available with the EDC dual clutch transmission.
Audi Q3 45 TFSIe Driving Video
The Q3 45 TFSI e and the Q3 Sportback 45 TFSI e mark the first step into the world of electrified Q models from Audi. Their technology package is very similar to the A3 45 TFSI e3: The 1.4 TFSI cooperates with a permanently excited synchronous machine (PSM) that outputs 85 kW of power and 330 Nm (243.4 lb-ft) of torque. Together, the two motors generate 180 kW (245 PS) of system output and 400 Nm (295.02 lb-ft) of system torque. Both the Q3 45 TFSI e and the Sportback take 7.6 seconds to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph), and both models reach a top speed of 210 km/h (130.5 mph). In the NEDC cycle, the Q3 45 TFSI e consumes 1.7 to 1.4 liters of fuel per 100 km. The Q3 Sportback 45 TFSI e records the same values of 1.7 to 1.4 liters of fuel per 100 km. Both compact SUVs can cover up to 61 km (37.9 mi) in the NEDC powered purely by electricity. In the WLTP, the distance is 51 km (31.7 mi) for the Q3 45 TFSI e and 50 km (31.07 mi) for the Q3 Sportback 45 TFSI e.
Production for the 2023 Cadillac LYRIQ begins in spring 2022 at GM’s Spring Hill, Tennessee, assembly facility, which received a $2 billion investment to support EV production. An additional $2.3 billion is being invested in an all-new battery cell manufacturing plant at Spring Hill. LYRIQ will be built alongside other Cadillac SUVs, as part of the brand’s strategy to balance EV and ICE vehicle production during the transition to an all-electric future. At launch, LYRIQ will be offered in the exclusive well-equipped Debut Edition, available with advanced technologies and stirring performance enabled by its dedicated electric architecture. A 12-module, 100.4 kilowatt-hour battery pack and a rear-wheel Utium Drive unit deliver a GM estimated 340 horsepower and 440 Nm of torque and a GM-estimated range of 300 miles on a full charge.
With its inimitable combination of exclusivity, dynamic excellence, luxuriant spaciousness and versatility, the BMW X7 has quickly developed into the most successful BMW model in the luxury class. And now the unique character profile of the brand’s largest Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) has been honed to significant effect thanks to extensive design refinements – most notably a visually impactful front end – plus a new-look M Sport package, light-alloy wheels measuring up to 23 inches (an ex-factory first for BMW) and the latest-generation iDrive control/operation system including BMW Curved Display and BMW Operating System 8. The new BMW X7 also comes with a further expanded range of standard equipment, additional driver assistance systems and the latest 48V mild hybrid technology for the three engine variants offered. The new BMW X7 is a central pillar in the ongoing product offensive at the most exclusive reaches of the premium carmaker’s model line-up. The new X7 will be produced at BMW Group Plant Spartanburg, the competence centre for BMW X models in the US state of South Carolina. The worldwide market launch for the new BMW X7 will get underway in August 2022.
