The new Mercedes-AMG E 53 4MATIC+ Coupé and Cabriolet: Affalterbach. Mercedes-AMG systematically continues to strengthen its brand identity: the new E 53 4MATIC+ Coupé and Cabriolet (combined fuel consumption: 9.1-8.9 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 209-204 g/km) have now also been given the characteristic AMG-specific radiator grille with vertical louvres.

The Prius development team was convinced that, whatever the results of their efforts, the development of a hybrid vehicle was essential for the future, and that they had to do what was necessary rather than what was simply possible.

The optional Audi connect Navigation & Infotainment plus add-on package also features other innovative services, including Google Earth. Using high-resolution satellite images it provides a more lifelike display, making it easier for drivers to find their way around. The same applies to the new, detailed 3D models of many major European cities. The hybrid radio is also included in the specification. Depending on a station’s signal strength it automatically switches between FM, DAB and the online stream to ensure optimum reception at all times. In conjunction with the optional Audi connect Navigation & Infotainment plus package, the natural voice control responds to inquiries not just with information stored onboard, but also with the detailed knowledge from the cloud – the same feature already premiered in the Audi A8. The online cross-referencing improves both the detection rate as well as the results. That way it is easy for the Audi Q3 to find special … [Read more...] about 2019 Audi Q3 Gets Athletic New Look And Even More Tech
