World premiere seat arona crossover

With the Seat Arona, the Spaniards are now celebrating the second premiere of the new MQB-A0 construction kit, while the mother company Volkswagen has just presented a vehicle for it. Identical to the soon-to-be-released VW T-Roc, the Spanish version is clever on the inside and emotionally on the outside. After its premiere in Spain, the B-SUV will be presented to the public for the first time at the IAA in September.

Model offensive 2017 with the next important model

Seat is going full throttle in 2017. While last year the focus was entirely on the Ateca, the crossover model Seat Arona is already the third new vehicle this year. It started with the revised Leon, through the brand new Seat Ibiza, to the brand’s first crossover. The Spanish version of the Kodiaq will follow next year, i.e. the Seat, the name of which has not yet been determined.

World premiere of the mercedes-benz glc f-cell – still as a pre-series

Mercedes-Benz is presenting the next EQ Power model at the 2017 IAA: the GLC F-Cell, which is still a pre-series, but will also be available for money in the future. A combination of fuel cell and battery drives inside the GLC. This means that a lithium-ion battery is still on board as a “backup”, which alone can cover a range of 49 kilometers. Most of the tasks come from the 4.4 kilogram hydrogen tank for 437 kilometers of locally emission-free driving.

“The long electric range, short refueling times and the suitability for everyday use of an SUV will make it the perfect companion. This is only possible thanks to the compact design of our fuel cell system. Another real world premiere is the combination with a large additional lithium-ion battery that can be conveniently charged using plug-in technology. ”- Ola Källenius, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG

World premiere- the new kia ceed

In the third generation, the Kia Ceed again challenges the compact class. As a European hit, the “Ceed” not only changes its name (formerly “cee’d”) but also upgrades. New engines, new design and new technology for the Korean. The only thing missing – as always – is a fair price.

New Kia Ceed: first Kia with traffic jam assistant

The new Ceed is the first Kia to have a traffic jam assistant. This also actively keeps the steering on track, but the new Kia Ceed can support its driver between zero and 130 km / h through various sensors as well as the vehicle in front. Another innovation is the 1.4-liter turbo gasoline engine with 140 hp. For the moment, the new top engine in addition to the 1.6-liter diesel with either 115 or 136 hp, but in any case 280 Nm torque and the Euro 6d-temp emissions standard (also for gasoline engines).

World premiere of the new crossover kia stonic

Now Kia also wants to get involved in the boom segment. The B-segment of the crossover, dominated by the Renault Captur for example, has offered the greatest growth potential for years and underlines this anew every month. The Kia Stonic wants to score here and that this year. The market launch is scheduled for the third quarter of 2017.

Kia enters the contested field

As always, Kia promises a high level of reliability, quality and an attractive design. The first two claims are at least supported by the typical 7 year warranty. When it comes to design, you can either celebrate quick and glorious victories in this class or fall deep. The design of the Kia Stonic was developed in Europe and should be able to shine especially in these markets. A strong, typical Kia front, with short overhangs and an extremely thick hips. There could hardly have been a better way of drawing a newcomer. You need special products that can stand out even more.

World premiere- new volvo xc90

Since 2002, the Volvo XC90 has rolled off the assembly line for twelve years, almost unchanged. With the world premiere of the second generation, it is not just the technology, the look, the safety standards, the luxury standards and the platform that change. Volvo is showing a completely new car that was developed over three years and devoured around 11 billion US dollars in investment.

It can no longer be recognized. The name and roughly the shape remained, everything else is completely new. Above all, the new SPA platform, which from now on “underpins” all new Volvo models (apart from the 40 family).

World premiere of the citroen c5 aircross with patented suspension

At Auto Shanghai 2017, Citroen is showing the production version of the Aircross concept car. The supposed closeness to the Peugeot 5008 is difficult to cover up, but the new Citroen C5 Aircross shows typical peculiarities and above all the current Citroen face. Especially since the SUV has saved a definitive world premiere, borrowing from bygone times: a suspension with a hydraulic stop.

Three SUV models – three different wheelbases

With a wheelbase of 2.73 meters, the Citroen C5 Aircross ranks between the Peugeot 3008 and 5008. Technically, however, all models are based on the current EMP2 platform, especially since parts of the new i-cockpit from Peugeot also appear in the interior. The presentation in Shanghai is not entirely by chance, because the C5 Aircross will first be introduced in China in the second half of 2017 before it comes to Europe at the end of 2018.

World premiere of the lexus ux- classy crossover in small format

After the NX, Lexus is going one size smaller with the UX. In direct comparison, the new crossover is a good 14 centimeters shorter than the NX, almost as wide but also twelve centimeters lower. In the wheelbase, however, it is only twenty millimeters short, which is positive in the smaller Lexus UX on the back seat.

Lexus UX is also celebrating the premiere of the new GA-C platform

The new Lexus UX also heralds the new GA-C architecture platform, because until now no Lexus has been on it. This enables the UX to have a low center of gravity, which is not entirely unimportant in the class of crossover and SUV models for driving dynamics. The design of the Lexus UX is extremely expressive and eye-catching. A slight difference between it and the other, larger Lexus models is the relatively small diabolo grill. A striking detail at the rear is the continuous light strip made of 120 LEDs. This becomes flatter and flatter towards the center of the vehicle, down to just three millimeters in height. It is still reserved for the UX, but in the future it will be found on every new Lexus model.

World premiere- new lexus rx

The Lexus RX is now getting on in years. Reason enough to present it in new splendor at the New York International Auto Show. Significant changes to the Lexus RX are primarily of an optical nature as well as small updates to the hybrid drive of the Lexus RX 450h sold in this country.

So far, the Lexus RX has been the brand’s top seller with 2.1 million units sold for 26 years. Overall, the SUV accounts for a third of Lexus’ total sales. Lexus claims to have completely redesigned the RX, we have to accept that because we can’t look under its skirt. Only the Lexus RX 450h is offered in Germany (there is also a non-hybrid version in the USA), which in turn has received small updates on the 3.5-liter Atkinson V6. However, the system output of 300 hp has not changed.
