Extenuating circumstances. Updated Suzuki Vitara

Vitara is the best-selling Suzuki model in Europe and Russia: from January to August of this year, 55,826 and 2,423 units were sold, respectively. Consumers are attracted by the laconic design in the spirit of the discontinued Grand Vitara SUV and the healthy conservatism of the Japanese crossover’s technical stuffing.
The update started in the fourth year of life did not bring radical changes to Vitara, but the fiat 1.6-liter turbodiesel and outdated gasoline aspirated with the same working volume disappeared from the gamut of engines of the European version due to tougher environmental requirements. But if in Europe amtospheric motors leave even the segment of mass inexpensive models, then in Russia they are still in great demand. More than 90% of Vitar are sold in our country with just 1.6 petrol engine (117 hp), and Suzuki reasonably decided for us to leave this unit, and instead Europeans will be offered a 111 Boosterjet petrol turbojet hp Continue reading

They went horseback. Peugeot e-Legend

This time, the Peugeot brand did without loud presentations at its home salon, where journalists, it must be admitted, are often driven away by force. Meanwhile, it was Peugeot from the entire bush of French brands that performed at the Paris Motor Show more successfully than the rest. On the one hand, demonstrating a practical 508 SW wagon, which, according to the company’s managers, will account for 60% of model sales in Europe. On the other hand, showing the retroconcept e-Legend, which, according to our observations, has become the most popular car in the cabin among all the “French”. And so that the visitors did not miss, they did not get lost in the large pavilion and certainly found e-Legend, the big lion pointed the way to the new product.
The retro theme in concepts, of course, is not new, but artists do not often turn to a specific model of the brand. Continue reading

Mercedes-Benz EQC electric crossover

About the Mercedes-Benz EQC electric crossover, a lot became known a month ago after its presentation in Stockholm, but it was a conventionally closed show not for everyone, and in Paris, Mers on batteries could feel anyone, and there were no less than to the new GLE, which, of course, is very beautiful, but in essence, does not offer anything new.
So, a month ago, from official sources, we learned that the EQC is built on a modified GLC crossover platform (wheelbase 2873 mm), but at the same time it has a more elongated body (length 4761 mm). Kinship with the model, designed for the use of internal combustion engines, led to the fact that the EQC does not have the usual front trunk for electric vehicles: the entire engine compartment is occupied by a powerful tubular frame, on which the electric motor and the power electronics unit are mounted.
