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. Its A-shaped design and the flatter all-LED headlamps create a width-emphasising, powerful impression. The restyled front apron in its A-wing design also has a positive influence on the overall vehicle proportions.

The new Cinturato P7 is born with Pirelli’s best-known technologies, adapted for all the different new car models that the tyres are homologated for – or to answer the needs of motorists who have specific requirements.

Mini recently unveiled the refreshed 2021 Countryman, but the changes were hardly monumental. The crossover now comes standard with LED headlights, and there's a different design for the interior of the grille. The taillights gain the Union Jack design from the Hardtop. Inside, there's a new 5.0-inch digital instrument display. There's a new Cooper SE Countryman plug-in hybrid with 17 miles of purely electric range. Otherwise, the powertrains carry over from before. … [Read more...] about Mini Could Launch Not-So-Mini SUV Positioned Above Countryman
