There are features in your vehicle you hope you will never have to use – and yet it is reassuring to have them on board. This is true, for example, of the automatic emergency call eCall, which has been mandatory for every new car in the EU since 2018. The mobile online services of ŠKODA Connect also offer other helpful functions in all current ŠKODA models with the exception of the CITIGOᵉ iV, grouped as proactive services under Care Connect. These support drivers with any questions they have about the car. Two functions in particular help to ensure a relaxed journey, especially during the travel season: the info and breakdown calls, the buttons for which can be found in the roof module next to the red emergency call button and are marked with an ‘i’ or a spanner.

Suzuki presents the new VITARA HYBRID 1.5 140V, the latest evolution of the model that inaugurated the compact SUV category in Italy in 1988. This version brings the 1.5 140V hybrid engine to its debut, alongside the popular 1.4 48V variant. The new propulsion system blends the adventurous spirit of the original VITARA with the needs of today's motorists, who are increasingly attentive to efficiency and respect for the environment, as well as comfort and performance. With this new model, the electrification process of the Suzuki range, which began in 2016 with the Baleno Hybrid, has come to completion and enters a new phase. The Suzuki hybrid 140 Volt technology that debuts with VITARA HYBRID 1.5 140V will play an increasingly important role in the near future and will also be offered on other models, allowing to comply with the increasingly stringent European regulations on emissions. VITARA HYBRID 1.5 140V is only available with AGS automatic transmission, both with front-wheel drive and 4x4 AllGrip all-wheel drive and is offered in the only exclusive Starview trim.
