    Porsche has unveiled the new Macan in Shanghai. The compact SUV has been a great success since its launch in 2014, and the latest model brings further enhancements in terms of its design, comfort, connectivity and driving dynamics, allowing the Macan to remain the sporty flagship in its segment.

    The new Macan stays true to the Porsche design DNA with a distinctive three-dimensional LED light strip across its tail. LED technology also features in the headlights as standard. The most striking innovations inside the vehicle include the 11-inch touchscreen of the new Porsche Communication Management (PCM), re-designed and re-positioned air vents and the GT sports steering wheel familiar from the 911. The PCM enables access to new digital functions, such as intelligent voice control and the online navigation system. The vehicle’s range of comfort equipment has also been expanded to include traffic jam assist, an ioniser to control interior air quality and a heated windscreen.

    LED headlights and new rear light strip as standard
    The introduction of a number of exterior styling features are intended to bring a more purposeful appearance look to the Macan, as well as incorporating more contemporary design elements. For instance, numerous details reflect the DNA of the iconic 911 sports car as well as the 918 Spyder. In particular, the lighting plays a key role, with the new Macan equipped with LED headlight technology as standard. The light units have a distinctive, three-dimensional design and can be further optimised if desired, such as with the Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS) that can adaptively ...

    The new, facelifted Fabia is the most advanced and well equipped ever, with a host of new safety systems, boosted specifications and a sharp new look.

    • The Digital Cockpit streamlines the delivery of important information to the driver
    • The Arona is the first crossover on the segment to integrate the Digital Cockpit
    • The Digital Cockpit’s 10.25” display is customisable to maximise its benefit and aid drivers, helping them focus on the most important information

    SEAT is bringing its versatile and customisable Digital Cockpit to the Arona and Ibiza, providing clearer information that is better suited to individual drivers.

    The SEAT Arona is the first crossover on the market to benefit from the 10.25” interactive, customisable display, which has already aided drivers in the SEAT Leon and Ateca since January 2018. In the UK, the Digital Cockpit comes as standard in XCELLENCE Lux and FR Sport trim for Arona, Ibiza, Leon and Ateca.

    The pixel-dense digital instrumentation not only has a more modern and versatile design, but provides greater functionality, allowing drivers to view everything from classic information found on analogue dials, such as speedometer and tachometer, to full-colour maps and navigation (as optional equipment).

    “We are fully committed to offering our customers the best quality design, bringing in the precision of a classic gauge into the digital world, where each pixel is designed with the same accuracy”
    , said Alejandro Mesonero-Romanos, Director of Design at SEAT. “Taking advantage of this disruptive digital environment, our interior car design upgrades to the next level.”

    Controlling the information provided is simple and requires the driver to merely press the steering wheel-mounted ‘View’ control button to scroll through the three ...

    Race to snap up special edition CUPRA


    • Exclusive 300PS CUPRA Carbon Edition now available
    • Fewer than 50 of the limited-run models are being released in the UK
    • Upgraded spec includes carbon fibre side blades and rear and front diffusers
    • Latest limited edition follows on from the success of the Leon CUPRA R

    SEAT fans can now get their hands on an exclusive Leon ST CUPRA Carbon Edition – but they will have to be quick, as fewer than 50 are being released in the UK.

    The limited edition features a 2.0 TSI 300PS DSG-auto 4Drive and is packed with a range of additional sports, styling and performance features. In addition to carbon fibre side blades and front and rear diffusers, the Monsoon Grey-only model will be fitted with high-performance Brembo brakes, 19-inch black alloy wheels and CUPRA bucket seats. The quad rear exhausts will also feature the CUPRA logo.

    Priced at Ł35,575 this exclusive edition will appeal to customers looking for super-charged styling and performance. Available to order and now in the UK, it is expected to follow the success earlier in the year of the limited-run CUPRA R, which quickly sold out.

    Richard Harrison, Managing Director of SEAT UK, said: “Following the success of the special edition CUPRA R, we know that there is demand for limited-run models from customers looking for something truly special. The Leon ST CUPRA Carbon Edition doesn’t only deliver stunning and unique looks, but we believe the enhanced performance and competitive price ...

    • Priced from Ł35,945 RRP*
    • Area view, progressive steering, ambient lighting all fitted as standard
    • Seven seat layout delivers comfort and luxury for all passengers


    Not content with building one of the most luxurious, comfortable and generously equipped SUVs on the market, ŠKODA is raising the bar even higher with the launch of a new range-topping Kodiaq Laurin & Klement model.


    Available to order at ŠKODA retailers now with prices starting from Ł35,945 RRP*, the L&K model features even more creature comforts, safety systems and driver technology than the previous top model - the Kodiaq Edition - further enhancing its reputation for value and practicality. The new Kodiaq L&K is available with four engine options; one petrol and three diesels, with power outputs ranging from 150PS to 190PS. All feature all-wheel drive and are available with DSG transmissions or in the case of the 2.0 TDI 150PS 4x4 variant, a six-speed manual option.

    Named in honour of the company’s founders, Václav Laurin and Václav Klement, the new Kodiaq L&K is the most luxurious SUV ever offered by ŠKODA. Like other L&K models in the brand’s line-up, the Kodiaq L&K comes with a remarkably generous specification list that few, if any rivals, can come close to matching. In terms of design, the Kodiaq L&K is distinguished from other models in the range by a chrome grille, 19-inch Sirius alloy wheels finished in anthracite and unique front and rear bumpers.

    Bentley Motors is demonstrating the beauty of bespoke with a new very special limited edition Mulsanne. The Mulsanne W.O. Edition by Mulliner pays homage to the founding father of the company and incorporates a genuine piece of Bentley history in every car.

    Sharper lines and a wealth of sophisticated technology bring the perennially popular Audi compact SUV right up to speed


    • Latest Audi design with more space, comfort and technology
    • New operating concept: Audi Virtual Cockpit and MMI touch display as standard for launch models
    • Connected like the full-size segment: smart infotainment and clever assistance systems
    • Open for UK ordering in the autumn – first deliveries in late 2018


    The right amount of space for a demanding family, the right amount of SUV road presence without feeling overbearing on tighter urban streets and the right combination of enduring quality, practicality and efficiency – the Audi Q3 has struck the right balance throughout its best-selling seven-year lifespan, and its all-new successor maintains that same equilibrium while taking on board absolutely contemporary Audi design, technology and connectivity. A fully digital cabin incorporating the Audi Virtual Cockpit and a large MMI touch display makes its debut, as do numerous infotainment solutions connecting the compact SUV with its environment and a wide variety of driver aids offering support when parking, in town and on long journeys.

    Strength and presence: the exterior design


    Sharper creases and sleeker lines lend the latest Audi Q3 a significantly more purposeful air than its predecessor. The Singleframe with its octagonal design and eight vertical bars, the large side air inlets and the slim headlights with their wedge shape set the scene upfront.

    They use LED technology in all versions and are paired with LED daytime running lamps. As an option, visibility can be further enhanced by adding Matrix LED units whose adaptive high beam intelligently illuminates the road.

    A highlight in the side view is the symmetrical lighting graphics of the headlights and rear lights. The shoulder line connects them from a styling perspective and adds to the overall impression of strength with defined accents over ...
