Togliatti plant started production of restyled Lad4x4 off-road vehicles. 165 copies of the model come off the assembly line per day. All trim levels will feature side airbags, a new dashboard and redesigned seats with increased lateral support. Also, the SUV will receive electric rear-view mirrors. Sales of the updated Lad4x4 will start at the beginning of 2020.
BMW tuner tweaks Toyota for the first time, which is not quite Toyota
The German tuning studio AC Schnitzer, engaged in the refinement of BMW cars, has presented a project based on the new ToyotSupra. The Japanese coupe has a three-liter inline "turbo-six" from the BMW Z4 roadster, so the tuners had no difficulty in increasing the engine power from 340 to 400 hp.
The new Supra also received an aerodynamic body kit, branded 20-inch wheels from AC Schnitzer, a 25 mm lower suspension, a sports exhaust system and aluminum pedal pads. For all modifications, the studio gives a guarantee of 4 years and 120 thousand kilometers, but the cost of tuning is not disclosed.
The exterior of the new sedan Audi A3 slightly revealed
A new generation A3 sedan was spotted near the Audi technical center. The prototype has no headlights (are they easy to steal, like the old Cayenne?), But a bumper with a large radiator grill is visible. The new Audi A3 family, which will also include a five-door hatchback, is expected to debut in early 2020.
Mercedes-Benz V-class belatedly received a new multimedia
From December 2019, the Mercedes-Benz V-class minibus will be equipped with the MBUX multimedia system with advanced voice control and two touchscreen options (7 or 10.25 inches). The model underwent an update at the beginning of the year, but then it retained the old Comand multimedia with a regular monitor. Apparently, this was done so that the first electric minivan EQV received the system.
See the giant traffic jam on the 12-lane highway
In Los Angeles, on the eve of Thanksgiving, so many people left the city at the same time that Highway 405 paralyzed several kilometers in both directions - despite the presence of 12 lanes. But at least it looks beautiful from a height.
