A hybrid world takes shape

In 2018, CUPRA introduced itself as more than a new and independent car brand, but also as a way of life for those who create the path. Exactly one year later, and to celebrate CUPRA’s first anniversary, the CUPRA Formentor Concept Car was presented at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show – a challenging hybrid here to redefine performance with electrification; a reinvented driving experience inviting us into a new world where raw materials interact with energy.  Born in the world of CUPRA, the CUPRA Formentor is not just a contemporary vision of sportiness. It’s the first car with 100% CUPRA DNA. The embodiment of CUPRA’s values. The new standard for future CUPRA models from body to soul. On the one hand, it merges the versatility of an SUV with the compact and sporty design of a coupé. On the other hand, it doesn’t need a combustion engine to perform like a CUPRA. It runs on a plug-in hybrid engine. While others are building electric cars in a rational way, CUPRA doesn’t forget what got us this far: the emotion experienced behind the wheel of a high-performance car. Adrenaline. Freedom. Control.  The CUPRA Formentor was built to anticipate the technology and design of the future. Its 1.5-litre TSI engine with 245hp reduces carbon emissions and fuel consumption. Its 12’’ panoramic navigation system was redesigned for a more immersive driving experience. Its rear infinite light concept magnifies the distinctive look of the car from the rear. As CUPRA’s firstborn, it has a leading role to play. Dynamic design, closer to the ground to highlight sportiness.  Once again, CUPRA brings together two elements that don’t naturally coexist. It’s a world where the rules don’t apply; where a sophisticated hybrid engine knows what real performance is. The CUPRA Formentor. It’s engineered to defy limits, living up to the true nature of CUPRA. In other words, it’s a reminder to never stop creating the path.

THE 500 DOLCEVITA SPECIAL EDITION CELEBRATES THE 62ND ANNIVERSARY OF THE ICONIC FIAT

The Fiat 500 Dolcevita, a special edition that sports white livery, red and white beauty line and "Dolcevita" badgeTwo versions are available: convertible with a white-and-blue striped top and red "500" badge and hatchback with a fixed glass roofThe interior sports a striking nautical wood dashboard and the new ivory leather seats with red piping and embroidered 500 logoThis July Fiat will be celebrating the anniversary of the 500, the authentic Italian masterpiece that got the people of Europe moving in the 1950s and still continues to amaze today. The 500 Dolcevita is debuting to celebrate the Italian icon. 500 Dolcevita, refined elegance for a masterpieceThe new 500 Dolcevita special edition holds the same values that underlie the most authentic Italian style that is embodied by the "Dolce Vita" years. As befitting for a timeless beauty, the new car sports an exclusive Bossa Nova White livery, enhanced by a red and white beauty line drawn around the entire silhouette. Reflecting the elegance of the era, the new 500 has a cursive "Dolcevita" chrome badge on the rear that perfectly complements the chrome bonnet line, the chrome door mirror covers and the body coloured side moulding with the "500" logo. The look is completed by elegant 16-inch white alloy wheels and fixed glass roof on the hatchback version. The convertible version of the 500 Dolcevita, for the first time in the history of the model, is fitted with a white-and-blue striped top with embroidered red "500" logo inspired by the deck chairs and beach umbrellas of the Italian Riviera. The same refined elegance is applied to the interior of the 500 Dolcevita with its wooden dashboard and contrasting beauty line. To ensure stability, flexibility and perfect resistance over time, the wood is applied onto an ultra-light carbon shell. The passenger compartment is the perfect match for the exteriors and is made even more exclusive by new ivory-coloured leather seats with embroidered 500 badge, red piping and a wicker-inspired central panel. The ivory colour scheme is mirrored in the floor mats. This special edition embodies the values of Italian Glamour and the lifestyle involving fashion, design, art and the aesthetics of everyday life, taste and imagination. These are the ingredients of the identity and charm of Italy, of which the 500 is one of the most famous symbols in the world. The anniversary is even more exciting because this year it coincides with the 120thyear of the Fiat brand, a milestone that only a few car manufacturers in the world can boast. Available in two configurations, hatchback and convertible, the 500 Dolcevita special edition includes the 69hp 1.2-litre engine with manual transmission. It can also be paired with the optional Dualogic gearbox. Ordering will open at the end of July, with prices starting from £17,995 for the hatchback version, and £20,995 for the convertible.

New Citroën Berlingo Van has been awarded ‘Van of the Year’ and ‘Light Van of the Year’ in the very first Company Van Today awards. The innovative Overload Indicator technology available to order on New Citroën Berlingo was also recognised, clinching the magazine’s first ‘Technology Award’. New Citroën Berlingo Van has carried off no less than three awards in the inaugural Company Van Today Awards 2019. New Berlingo Van has been awarded the all-important ‘Van of the Year’ and ‘Light Van of the Year’ in the very first Company Van Today Awards. It doesn’t stop there for Citroën’s newest van either. New Berlingo Van is available with 20 driver assistance systems, all designed to provide a safer and less stressful environment for van drivers. One such technology is the Overload Indicator, which warns the driver if the vehicle is overloaded. Overloading is an offence and can adversely affect vehicle handling as well as fuel consumption. In addition, it can also cause accelerated wear on components, including braking, suspension and transmission parts. Company Van Today has presented its very first ‘Technology Award’ to the Overload Indicator technology, designed to combat the very real issue of overloading, available on New Berlingo Van. Tom Webster, Company Van Today’s Editor, commented: “Citroen has really hit the spot with the new Berlingo Van, a van that is clever, good to drive, efficient and stylish. Class-leading tech including the pioneering Overload Indicator makes for a van at the very top of its game and a worthy CVT Van of the Year 2019 winner.” The Company Van Today Awards reward the best vehicles in the industry, those light commercials that offer fleets a combination of great running costs, high quality, efficiency and clever features that help businesses do their jobs more effectively. Carefully selected by the Company Van Today editorial team with decades of combined experience in the sector, the winners are those that can best serve a business audience. Ed Hickin, Citroën UK’s Head of Business Sales, commented: “New Berlingo Van adds yet another award to an already lengthy list, including the prestigious 2019 International Van of the Year. We are particularly proud that the UK’s newest van publication has honoured New Berlingo Van with no less than three awards and recognised the innovative technology it has to offer.” New Berlingo Van has been racking up the awards since it was launched last year. This includes ‘International Van of the Year’ 2019, ‘Fleet Van of the Year’ in the 2019 Fleet World Great British Fleet Awards, ‘Light Commercial Vehicle of the Year’ and ‘Light Van of the Year’ at the 2019 What Van? Awards, ‘Small Van of the Year’ from Company Car and Van magazine and ‘Van of the Year’ and ‘Best Small Van’ in the 2019 Trade Van Driver magazine awards. New Berlingo Van is now available with the latest 1.5-litre Euro 6.2 / 6.D TEMP BlueHDi 75, 100 and 130 diesel engines as well as the very latest Euro 6.3 / 6.D 1.2-litre PureTech 110 petrol engine. An eight-speed automatic transmission (EAT8) is available as an option with the 1.5-litre BlueHDi 130 engine. Find our latest Berlingo offer here.

SEAT TARRACO WINS BEST LARGE SUV AT AUTO EXPRESS AWARDS 2019

SEAT Tarraco beats tough competition to win Best Large SUV just three months after launching in UK, at the Auto Express Awards. The Tarraco – an all-new model for the SEAT brand – was praised by the weekly publication’s panel of judges for its versatility, boot space and reasonable price tag. Of the decision to award the Tarraco Best Large SUV, Steve Fowler, Editor-in-Chief at Auto Express, said: “The Tarraco is the first large, seven-seat SUV from SEAT, and it’s a remarkable first effort. It features a high-quality, upmarket interior that’s also versatile and practical. The cabin is neatly designed and easy to live with, while the long list of equipment includes an excellent infotainment system that responds quickly and has solid smartphone connectivity. The huge 700-litre boot that you get when you fold the third row down into the floor is very useful, and the load bay is nice and flat, boosting versatility. The Tarraco is also smooth on long runs and fun on twisting roads, while it packs a versatile range of engines, making it a well-priced do-it-all SUV.” Richard Harrison, Managing Director, SEAT UK, said: “We’ve already had great feedback from customers since Tarraco launched in the UK just a few months ago, with early sales contributing to SEAT UK’s record-breaking first half year of sales. A fitting flagship to the SEAT range, Tarraco comes standard with seven seats, economical powertrains, a fresh new-look design as well as a top quality interior, and the easymove range line-up includes everything you could need as standard, including metallic paint within the price, making it great value for money. We are delighted and honoured that the experts at Auto Express have named Tarraco as the best large SUV you can buy today, making it the perfect car to complete our multi-award winning SUV line-up.” SEAT’s biggest product offensive reached its climax with the introduction of the brand’s new flagship model, the Tarraco. The new SUV blends the key attributes of every vehicle in the SEAT range – design and functionality, sportiness and comfort, technology and emotion – but in a form that suits a wider variety of lifestyles. Tarraco is available with four trim levels: SE, SE Technology, XCELLENCE and XCELLENCE LUX. FR and FR Sport will be added at a later date. There is a choice of five powertrains: two petrol – 1.5 TSI 150PS in manual and 2.0 TSI 190PS in DSG with 4Drive – and three diesel – 2.0 TDI 150PS available in manual and DSG with 4Drive, and a 2.0 TDI 190PS in DSG with 4Drive only. The seven-seater has respectable boot capacities of 230-litres (2nd and 3rd row upright), 700-litres (with third row folded and 2nd row upright) and 1,775-litres (with 2nd and 3rd rows folded.

After all, the brand has more than 100 years’ experience in creating some of the world’s most beautiful cars. The Tonale is surely among Alfa’s greatest hits, and we can’t wait to see how the concept evolves into a production model.” Scott Krugger, head of design for Alfa Romeo said, “The Tonale is an incredibly important car for Alfa Romeo as it marks the first plug-in hybrid in the range and it needed to be both functional and beautiful.” “It is a huge honour to collect an award voted for by the readers of Auto Express.
