    ŠKODA’s Head Designer Jozef Kabaň speaks about the demands on form and function of the new ŠKODA Fabia.
    Question: A few months ago, the ‘ŠKODA VisionC’ design study gave us a first glimpse of the future ŠKODA design language. In what way does the new ŠKODA Fabia reflect this development?
    Jozef Kabaň: We have demonstrated with the ‘ŠKODA VisionC’ design study how ŠKODA is able to combine great functionality with an expressive, emotional and more sharply defined design. This new design direction is the next step in the development of our brand and the new ŠKODA Fabia is the first model to communicate this design language. Drawing on elements of the ‘ŠKODA VisionC’ design study, the Fabia is more expressive, more dynamic and sportier.
    Question: Why more emotions?
    Jozef Kabaň: Demands on a car brand and its design develop over time. In recent years, ŠKODA has made a name for itself by producing cars with great functionality and above-average interior space. We sense that now is the right time to create a stronger connection between the functionality of our cars and an expressive and emotional design. You could say, that we are taking steps back to our roots. ŠKODA has a tradition of building design-oriented cars which are full of emotion, such as the legendary ŠKODA Popular Monte Carlo in the 1930s. We want to live up to these standards today.
    Question: Does more emotion come at the expense of the new Fabia’s practical features?
    Jozef Kabaň: No, quite the opposite. In spite of all its emotionality, the ŠKODA Fabia remains more than true ...

    SEAT has confirmed pricing and specification for the latest addition to the high-selling Leon line-up. Called X-PERIENCE, the new lifestyle estate with permanent four-wheel-drive and off-roader looks starts from Ł24,385 on-the-road.
    The Barcelona-based brand recently confirmed that its eagerly-awaited compact SUV will arrive in 2016, so the newcomer will be seeking to gain traction for SEAT in the lead-up to its launch.

    Porsche today announces the new generation of the Cayenne, the key characteristics of which include sharper design, boosted efficiency and an extensive breadth of standard features. As a sports car among sport utility vehicles (SUVs), besides offering five seats and extensive features, the Cayenne offers a lot of room for a lot of driving fun; combining high performance and typical Porsche design DNA.
    The Cayenne is a unique success story at Porsche. The company introduced the first generation in 2002, and made the idea of a sports car in the SUV segment a reality – and it set a new benchmark right from the start.
    Sales have exceeded all expectations. Over 276,000 examples of the first generation Porsche Cayenne were produced (2002 to 2010), and around 303,000 units of the second generation, which was introduced in 2010, have been produced so far. Over this period, the Cayenne is not only boosting profitable growth at Porsche, it is also creating a solid economic foundation for investments in future generations of sports cars.
    On sale now and arriving in Porsche Centres from 11 October, the new generation of the Cayenne will be launched in five versions: Cayenne Diesel, Cayenne S, Cayenne S Diesel and Cayenne Turbo. The highlight is the Cayenne S E-Hybrid, which makes its world premiere as the first plug-in hybrid in the premium SUV segment. This model, together with the Panamera S E-Hybrid and the 918 Spyder super sportscar, makes Porsche the world's only car manufacturer to offer three plug-in hybrid models.
    A further development is the new 3.6-litre V6 bi-turbo engine in the Cayenne S, that was fully developed ...
