    • Boldness, elegance and sportiness key characteristics of all-new SEAT Leon
    • Strong design evolution giving a more purposeful presence to best-seller
    • The all-new SEAT Leon will be revealed at 19:00 GMT Tuesday 28 January 2020
    • Register your interest in new Leon at

    The all-new SEAT Leon is almost here. The brand’s latest vehicle arrives with a strong design evolution that keeps the soul of previous generations of Leon. Its design philosophy connects perfectly with the values of the SEAT brand.

    The all-new SEAT Leon builds on the appeal of its predecessor but with a strong design evolution, giving it a more purposeful presence, aided by its improved dimensions, refreshed front visual, sculpted rear design and smoother lines that connect the two.

    “The all-new SEAT Leon has been designed by our team with courage, simplicity and executed with strength and determination. Simplicity because at SEAT, we believe that most things can be said with just a few lines. Determination and strength because those are some of the attributes that make our cars recognizable seducing at first glance”,
    said Alejandro Mesonero-Romanos, Director of Design at SEAT.

    The body surfaces have evolved, with stronger shapes creating more shift in the light and colour tone across the body, which together create a more elegant design. This creates a vehicle with a multi-layered, three-dimensional aesthetic.

    The rear character is emphasised by the coast-to-coast LED lights. The sculpted boot is designed ...

    • New two-minute film contrasts Bentayga Speed’s 3.8-second 0-60 mph time with the 16 days it takes to handcraft each and every car
    • Celebrates Bentley as the Centre of Excellence for Wood, Leather and W12 Engine manufacture within the Volkswagen Group
    • Automotive production filmed from a racing drone for the first time

    The handcrafting of Bentayga Speed is captured in a new film released today by Bentley Motors. Shot entirely at the Bentley factory in Crewe, England, the two-minute film contrasts the stunning 3.8-second 0-60 mph time of Bentayga Speed with the 127 working hours – 16 working days - it takes to craft each car by hand. Bentayga Speed is both the fastest SUV in the world, with a top speed of 190 mph, and the SUV with the highest number of hours committed to exceptional handcraftsmanship.

    Covering all of the areas of Bentayga production at Crewe, the film celebrates Bentley’s status as the Centre of Excellence for Wood, Leather and 12-cylinder engine manufacture within the Volkswagen Group. The opening scenes in the Wood Shop show highlights of the 10 hours of processing required to turn raw leaves of sustainably sourced wood into finished veneer. Every sheet of wood within a completed car comes from the same tree, to ensure the pattern and colour through the car remain the same, and ages in the same way.

    Transferring to the Trim Shop, the process of creating the interior cabin from exquisite leather hides is summarised. The dedicated team of craftspeople in the Trim Shop take just over eight hours to transform up to 14 bull hides - all of which ...

    • The new Smart Climate menu can be used to activate climate functions such as “Warm hands” or “Fresh air”
    • Smart Climate is included in the new Golf as a standard function of the optional 3-zone automatic air conditioner Air Care Climatronic with allergy filter
    • Climate functions can also be activated in the Golf using intuitive voice All you have to do is say “I am cold” or “I am warm”.

    Volkswagen models represent modern functionality and the brand’s typically easy orientation inside the vehicle. With the new Golf, operation is now even more intuitive. A visible and tangible example is the control for the 3-zone automatic air conditioner “Air Care Climatronic”. This newly designed air conditioning system has a Smart Climate menu that can be used to activate specific individual functions such as “Warm feet” or “Clear view”– not only at the press of a button, but also using voice control. The new model is therefore the first Golf to respond interactively to the wishes of the driver and passenger.

    The temperature of the air conditioning system can be adjusted in the new Golf using a touchslider or voice input. The driver and passenger can access the menu control of the “Air Care Climatronic” with allergen filter and 3-zone control via the screen of the Infotainment system or the touch field below with direct access buttons. As an alternative to the classic controls, such as for the fan function or air recirculation mode (Classic Climate), the screen features the new Smart Climate menu. To access specific ...

    Automobili Lamborghini incorporates Alexa in its Huracán EVO range in 2020, enhancing its super sports car driving experience with the cloud- based voice service from Amazon. The first Huracán EVO equipped with Alexa is on display at the global stage for innovation, the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, from January 7-10, 2020.

    In the Huracán EVO, Lamborghini introduced a connected infotainment system with digital services for the first time on a super sports car. It will be the first car manufacturer to deliver in- car control via Amazon Alexa, allowing drivers to adjust functions such as climate, interior lighting and seat heating with a simple voice command, leaving the driver to focus on the road ahead. Alexa will even be integrated into the LDVI dynamic set-up (Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata) on the four-wheel drive EVO, taking the Huracán EVO to a new level of voice-activation capabilities: place calls, get directions, play music and audiobooks, check news and weather, and more – all you have to do is ask!

With a simple voice interaction, drivers in the Huracán EVO can control everything from entry gates to thermostats and lights, directly from the vehicle.

    • Compact SUV with a wide bonnet, solid ŠKODA grille and striking rear view
    • Vision IN premieres at Auto Expo 2020 in New Delhi from 5 to 12 February 2020
    • ŠKODA AUTO has overall responsibility for the activities of the Volkswagen Group brands in India

    Solid, striking, muscular: Two design sketches give a first impression of the impactful exterior of the new ŠKODA Vision IN. The approximately 4.26-metre-long concept study is a forerunner of a compact SUV designed especially for the Indian market, the production of which will start in 2020. The Vision IN will make its first public appearance at Auto Expo 2020 in New Delhi (5 to 12 February).

    The first design sketch shows the dynamic front of the visually compelling SUV concept study. In addition to a wide bonnet, a large ŠKODA grille with solid ribs shapes the visual impression. The upper, very flat units of the split headlights progress directly to the grille.

    Beneath is a robustly designed front apron with large side air intakes and a massive front spoiler made of aluminium.

    The second sketch illustrates a clearly structured, distinctive rear with sharply contoured, three-dimensional rear lights; an additional horizontal light strip connects the reflectors. Illuminated ŠKODA lettering is prominently positioned in the centre of the rear; an aluminium diffuser is integrated into the rear apron underneath.

    • Punchy 1.5-litre petrol engine sits at top end of T-Cross range
    • Compact SUV now has choice of three petrols and one diesel
    • Latest engine is offered exclusively with a 7-speed DSG transmission

    The Volkswagen T-Cross line-up has been expanded once again, with the addition of the acclaimed 1.5-litre TSI 150 PS petrol engine to the compact SUV’s range.

    It is the second time the versatile T-Cross has delighted even more customers with a new engine in less than a year on UK roads. In 2019 a frugal 1.6-litre 95 PS diesel joined the line-up, in addition to the 1.0-litre three-cylinder TSI units offering 95 PS and 115 PS at launch.

    With the more powerful, four-cylinder 1.5-litre turbocharged engine installed, this variant is the swiftest T-Cross available, taking 8.5 seconds to sprint to 62 mph from standstill, before going on to a top speed of 124 mph where permitted. Despite the nippier performance, economy is still among the T-Cross’s top talents, returning 44.0 mpg on the combined WLTP cycle while emitting 118-119 g/km of CO2 (NEDC), depending on specification.

    This new engine will be offered on the SEL and R-Line trims, and will be available exclusively with a 7-speed DSG transmission, bringing the number of engine and gearbox configurations for the T-Cross up to a total of six. As part of Volkswagen’s five-strong SUV range, the
    T-Cross joins an ever-expanding family, with the soon-to-launch T-Roc Cabriolet, new T-Roc R performance SUV and recently expanded Touareg line-up ensuring there is Volkswagen ...

    • Entry-level up! available from Ł12,440 RRP OTR

    he Volkswagen up! GTI has returned to sale, refreshed for 2020 as part of a significant enhancement of the whole up! range. These range revisions include new safety equipment, exciting new trim levels, and the accolade of being the first model in the UK to wear the new Volkswagen badge. Orders open today, with the entry-level up! trim starting at Ł12,440 RRP OTR.

    Volkswagen’s smallest car – which received more awards in the UK last year than any other model in the brand’s range – is back for the new decade and better than ever.

    Not only is the new up! the first model in the UK to wear the new Volkswagen logo, but more standard kit is offered including a multifunction camera with lane assist, curtain airbags and a smartphone integration cradle.

    After a short hiatus, the critically-acclaimed and smallest Volkswagen GTI model makes its return. The up! GTI keeps its acclaimed and characterful 115 PS 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged engine. Combined with a 6-speed manual gearbox, the GTI can complete the 0-62 mph sprint in 8.8 seconds. The other petrol engine option in the up! range is the 60 PS, 1.0-litre three-cylinder power plant. Furthermore, the improved e-up! pure-electric vehicle – with a vastly increased range of 162 miles – will be available to order soon.

    Change starts with the standard up!, which benefits from new, generously-equipped trim levels. ...
