    • CUV is the first model developed specifically for the brand
    • The new model integrates latest-generation technologies to provide a unique driving experience
    • CUPRA's high-performance plug-in hybrid motor is paired with dual-clutch DSG transmission delivers 180kW/245PS


    The CUPRA Formentor has made its dynamic debut around the stunning roads of Cap de Formentor, Mallorca. The CUV is the first model developed specifically by CUPRA and made its public static debut at Geneva Motor Show earlier this year.

    The vehicle brings together the benefits of a performance car with the qualities of an SUV, at a time when the CUV segment is destined to see incredible growth. It demonstrates the ambition, expressiveness and inspiration that the brand inherently holds and underlines the CUPRA’s position as a technology brand with one eye on the future.


    The CUPRA Formentor is engineered to take the brand into the future, incorporating one of the most advanced propulsion systems and providing the performance the CUPRA badge demands, but in a sustainable manner.

    Powering the CUPRA Formentor is the high-performance plug-in hybrid engine, a powertrain designed to meet today’s requirements for performance and efficiency and begin the electrification of the brand.

    Mixing the technology of an advanced high-performance plug-in hybrid petrol engine with a high power output and the high-torque characteristics of an electric motor allows the CUPRA Formentor to surpass ...

    Highly successful SUV now fitted with TFSI engine and powerful electric motor


    • Q5 55 TFSI e quattro develops 367PS system output and 500Nm of torque, from just 1,250rpm
    • Electric range of over 26 miles, with electric driving at up to 84mph
    • Ideal for commuters, fleet operators and as a company car
    • EV, Battery Hold and Hybrid driving modes available
    • Opens for order in early June, priced from approximately Ł55,000 OTR


    As the trailblazer for a new range of plug-in models from Audi, the Q5 55 TFSI e is about to make a suitably progressive statement by combining the economic and environmental benefits of electrified driving with the demand-led efficiency of quattro with ultra technology for the first time. A range of over 26 miles and a top speed of 84mph in electric-only mode enable the new hybrid Q5 to cover most everyday driving distances – including motorway journeys – without backup from the petrol engine. Available to order in the UK from the beginning of June, with first deliveries scheduled during quarter four of this year, the Audi Q5 55 TFSI e quattro will be priced at around Ł55,000 OTR.

    The new drive concept combines a 2.0 TFSI four-cylinder, turbocharged petrol engine producing 252PS and 370 Nm (272.9 lb-ft) of torque with an electric motor. The permanently excited synchronous motor (PSM) has a peak output of 105 kW and peak torque of 350 Nm (258.1 lb-ft). It and the separating clutch are integrated into the seven-speed S tronic, which uses ultra technology to transfer the drive torque to the quattro drivetrain. Overall, the hybrid SUV impresses with a system output of 367PS and total torque of 500 Nm (368.8 lb-ft) just above idle, namely from 1,250 rpm. Acceleration from 0 to 62mph takes

    • First ŠKODA with plug‑in hybrid drive has an electric range of up to 55 km in the WLTP cycle
    • 1.4 TSI petrol engine and an electric motor deliver a combined power output of 160 kW (218 PS)
    • Latest generation of infotainment, connectivity and assistance systems


    The SUPERB iV is ŠKODA’s first production model to be fitted with plug‑in hybrid drive. A 1.4 TSI petrol engine and an electric motor deliver a combined power output of 160 kW (218 PS). The all‑electric range is up to 55 km in the WLTP cycle; up to 850 km can be covered when combined with the petrol engine. This new drive variant is available for the Ambition and Style trim levels as well as for the SUPERB SPORTLINE and the SUPERB L&K. Production is set to commence at the Kvasiny site in early autumn this year; the market launch will take place at the beginning of 2020.


    The new ŠKODA SUPERB iV is the brand’s first production model to feature plug‑in hybrid technology. By combining an efficient petrol engine with an electric motor, it offers particularly eco‑friendly mobility without compromising on performance. The battery has a capacity of 37 Ah and 13 kWh of energy: the car’s CO2 emissions are less than 40 g/km and the all‑electric range is up to 55 km (in the WLTP cycle). The ŠKODA SUPERB iV fulfils the Euro 6d‑TEMP emissions standard.


    The battery can be charged conveniently at home overnight, for example, using a standard plug socket or in 3 hours 30 minutes using a wall box with a charging output of 3.6 kW. The socket for the charging cable is located behind a flap in the radiator grille. The ŠKODA SUPERB iV is also able to recharge or maintain the level of charge in the battery while driving, using its petrol engine and brake energy recovery. This allows drivers to cover a longer journey’s ‘last mile’ – in a city, for example – again without producing any emissions there.


    Particularly dynamic thanks to electric support

    • Updated SUPERB is the first ŠKODA production car to feature full LED Matrix headlights and Dynamic lighting functions
    • Full LED tail lights with dynamic indicators improve visibility
    • Revised SUPERB to be launched in this month


    ŠKODA’s updated flagship model, the Superb, is the brand’s first production car to feature innovative full LED Matrix headlights. The revised model will boast even more safety and greater comfort. The Czech car manufacturer has revealed first impressions of the new full LED Matrix headlights, the redesigned LED fog lights and full LED tail lights with dynamic indicators. The world premiere of the revised ŠKODA Superb will take place in May as part of the 2019 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship in Bratislava, Slovakia; which ŠKODA sponsors.

    The sketch of the full LED Matrix headlights reveals the design of the innovative lighting system, which consists of an LED module for the dipped and high beam as well as three further LED high beam segments, and bears ‘ŠKODA Crystal Lighting’ lettering in the housings. A narrow strip of LEDs provides the indicators, daytime running lights and position light. Above this are fine needle-like LED structures, which are part of the new animated Coming/Leaving Home function. When turning on and off the car, this feature automatically turns elements of the headlights and tail lights on and off in a specified sequence.

    Updated Audi compact executive range adopts the latest Audi design hallmarks, efficiency aids and advanced infotainment technology


    • Best-selling A4 range moves into step with latest Audi design language
    • Fully connected and with new MMI touch display
    • Electrification with mild hybrid technology enhances comfort and efficiency
    • S4 TDI combines V6 TDI engine with electric compressor and 48-volt main electrical system for the first time
    • Available for UK ordering from June – first deliveries in September

    A more streamlined look and a more contemporary feel – today marks the launch of a comprehensively updated Audi A4 range that moves into step with the latest additions to the Audi family in terms of design and technology and anchors the broad spread of Saloon, Avant and allroad models even more firmly in the vanguard of the compact executive class. The launch is also notable for including high performance S4 variants that travel under TDI power for the first time in the model’s history, and also do so with the benefit of the same independent electric compressor technology that brought the SQ7 so much critical acclaim.

    Sharper focus: the exterior design


    Newly designed headlights contribute to a favourable first impression in the latest A4 models, and all now use LED technology as standard regardless of version. The lamps flank a broader, flatter Singleframe grille that is complemented by resculpted bumper elements with a more horizontal aspect that emphasises width.

    The profile is defined by the distinctive new detailing above the wings and the lower- set shoulder line in between. They form strong contours above the wheels and make the quattro genes outwardly visible.

    Inside, an emphasis on horizontal ...

    Popular Black Edition specification option becomes available for all variants in the latest A6 Saloon and Avant range

    • Builds on S line model equipment with black exterior detailing, privacy glass and larger wheels finished in matt titanium
    • OTR prices from Ł44,635 – available in conjunction with all engine options


    Darkness falls on the Audi A6 range again this month as the popular Black Edition specification becomes available for the latest generation Saloon and Avant models. Already a firm favourite with customers ordering the previous generation model, the new top tier A6 specification can be combined with all engines in the new range, with OTR prices starting from Ł44,635 OTR.


    Building on the foundations of the performance-focused S line specification, the Black Editions upgrade from a 19-inch wheel to a gloss turned 20-inch V-spoke design in matt titanium. They also feature a black finish for the radiator grille surround, front air intakes, door mirror housings and rear diffuser, plus the roof rails in Avant models. Privacy glass for the rear windows also helps to set the tone.

    All the mild hybrid powertrains in the range can be combined with the new specification, from the 204PS and 245PS four-cylinder engines powering the 40 TDI and 45 TFSI through to the 286PS and 340PS six cylinder options in the 50 TDI and 55 TFSI.

    New V6 diesel powerplant in elegant Coupe and Sportback delivers stepless torque thanks to the electric powered compressor



    • Powerful 3.0 TDI engine with 347PS and 700Nm
    • 48-volt mild hybrid technology and electric powered compressor
    • Ideal combination of efficiency and performance


    For the first time in its history, the Audi S5 now has a V6 diesel at its heart. Underpinned by mild hybrid technology, it equips the peak performer with impressive staying power between fill-ups and delivers even greater immediacy of response courtesy of an electric powered compressor. The 3.0 TDI engine, which will be introduced in both the S5 Coupé and the S5 Sportback in late 2019, now produces 347PS and delivers up to 700 Nm (516.3 lb-ft) of torque to the crankshaft, available between 2,500 and 3,100 rpm.

    This combination of power, torque and efficiency sets the S5 apart in this segment.

    The 3.0 TDI in the S5 models is the most powerful version in the Audi V6 diesel engine line-up. Both the electric powered compressor (EPC) and mild hybrid (MHEV) systems are embedded in the standard 48-volt main electrical circuit. For the first time in the S5 TDI, a powerful 48–volt belt alternator starter is the heart of the mild hybrid system with maximum recuperation power of up to 8 kW. A DC/DC converter steps this voltage down for components in the 12–volt electrical system. A compact, air-cooled lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 0.5 kWh installed under the luggage compartment floor serves as the energy centre.

    With these characteristics, the V6 diesel engine is the ideal power plant for agility, spontaneity, low fuel consumption and long range, with a suitably resonant sound to match.

    Acceleration to 62mph in the S5 Coupé takes 4.8 seconds and and 4.9 seconds in the S5 Sportback, with both reaching their peak at an electronically limited 155mph.

    The EPC: fast support for the turbocharger


    The electric powered compressor in the Audi ...
