2019 Skoda Karoq Sportline To Be Unveiled At The Paris Motor Show

Days after Skoda introduced us to the exceptional-looking Karoq Scout, we are not again being treated to the all-new version of the Karoq Sportline. The Czech company’s sporty interpretation of the compact SUV leaves us wondering what more can Skoda do in the future.

The crossover SUV is scheduled to be presented at the Paris Motor Show in October and it will come with the most powerful engine from the range.

In total, there are four engine options to choose from: the 2.0 TSI petrol engine, two 2.0 TDI diesel engines, and the 1.5 TSI petrol engine. The 2.0 TSI petrol engine can make 190 horsepower. This is the main engine being offered by Skoda for the Karoq Sportline. There are two 2.0 TDI engines, the most powerful of which can also produce 190 horses. Using this drivetrain, the Sportline can pair well enough with a seven-speed DSG and four-wheel-drive.

The other 2.0 TDI uses a front-wheel-drive system and can only produce 150 horsepower. It comes with a manual six-speed gearbox. Options available a four-wheel-drive system combined with a seven-speed DSG.

The 1.5 TSI petrol engine comes with a front-wheel drive with the seven-speed DSG as an option. This is also paired with an all-wheel drive.

In terms of exterior, the Karoq Sportline has sportier bumpers, 19-inch black wheels, front mudguards with the Sportline logo, and black roof rails. Inside, the sports seats are all in black with contrasting silver stitch. They are upholstered in air-permeable Thermoflux fabric, which brings extra comfort to passengers, especially during the summer season.

The multifunction steering wheel is covered in perforated black leather with silver stitching, similar to the sports seats. Completing the interior styling are pedals with stainless steel elements, a black headliner, black roof pillars, and an LED package that includes ambient lighting.

 

2019 DS 3 Crossback SUV Readies For Launch

The new 2019 DS 3 Crossback will be the DS’s star for the upcoming Paris Motor Show. Thanks to the new set of leaked images, we now have a good idea about how the new SUV will look like.

The DS 3 Crossback SUV will be similar to the design of the recently released DS 7 Crossback and will, of course, attempt to compete with the current crossover SUVs in the market. It’s a growing market and one that will continue to grow in years to come. It makes sense that DS wants a chunk of that market for their Nissan Juke-looking SUV.

The two unique design features of this SUV are the sharp kink in the window line and the vertical daytime running lights. Other than these, buyers can be sure that the crossover will use Peugeot’s all-new small CMP platform, the same one used on the next-generation Peugeot 208. This means that an all-electric version could also be in the works since the CMP platform was engineered with electrification in mind.

Eric Apode, DS’s executive vice president who’s responsible for research and development, said during the Tokyo Motor Show last year that two-thirds of the 650,000 cars that DS sold since 2010 have been the DS 3. It makes sense for the company, whose parent company is the Peugeot, to cash in on a large number of customers who believed in the DS 3.

He said there is also an “evolution of the markets,” and this can be seen in the sales of the MINI SUV as opposed to the three-door hatchback that the automaker has been known for. The same can be said for other companies such as the Audi.

The DS 3 Crossback will be the first vehicle off the shelves of DS to use the e-CMP. This means that it will be able to offer the Crossback as a pure electric vehicle as well. As previously published by DS, the car would be powered by a 114bhp electric motor and a 50kWh battery that has a range of 280 miles.

Lexus UX Concept Pioneers 3D Driving Experience

The Lexus UX Concept will make its world debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show, and it is charged to showcase Lexus’ vision of a compact SUV for the future. The vehicle will apparently represent the company’s new approach in designing and in providing an exceptional driving experience.

The UX concept has a bold and imaginative approach to designing and technologies. It aims to provide customers an immersive driving experience, thanks to the on-board HMI technology that has been designed to offer an “innovative, three-dimensional driver experience.”

The instrument binnacle of the driver has a transparent, hologram-like globe that houses a combination of analog and digital information. The binnacle is both functional and has an unexpected user interface. The center console, on the other hand, features that prominent and faceted crystal structure. Within that, you can find a hologram-style display of air-conditioning and infotainment system that is clearly visible both to the driver and the front passenger.

The new UX concept will also showcase the latest advanced in-vehicle electrical technologies, which include electro-chromatic windows and electrostatic switchgear that is housed under transparent covers. The sideview mirrors have been replaced with e-mirror camera housings. These are far slimmer than the conventional mirror housings on current vehicles.

Drivers may also expect a new audio experience from cars using the UX Concept thanks to the fin motif on the dashboard, the same one that was used on the A pillar. In fact, a removable sound bar was even built into the passenger side of the dashboard, so that everyone can enjoy a one-of-a-kind audio experience.

Stephen Rasmussen, designer at the European Design Centre, ED2, said that the Lexus’ goal is to create a new genre of compact crossover. They want a vehicle that can create an innovative and 3D experience for the user.
