Mercedes has released details for the 2015 Mercedes S-Class Coupe; the car will have its world premiere at the upcoming 2014 Geneva Motor Show. The new S-Class will showcase a curve tilting function - part of the MAGIC BODY CONTROL suspension, which aids in reducing the lateral acceleration acting on the car passengers.
The 2015 Mercedes S-Class Coupe is powered by a 4.6L V8 bi-turbo engine delivering 455hp of power and 700 Nm of max torque.
Front and rear park-assist sensors and cameras are standard across the line for enhanced confidence and convenience. A Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) is standard on the V6 Technology Package and both V8 models.
The new Turbo diesel power plant is available in two options: 170HP and 140HP; both deliver 350Nm of torque. The difference in the power output is due to gearbox: the 170hp version of 2.0L engine is coupled with nine-speed automatic gearbox where as the 140 hp version of 2.0L engine is coupled to a six-speed manual transmission. Both engines feature start/stop technology that helps improve fuel efficiency and reduce carbon footprint.
Renault unveiled a all-new concept, the 2014 Renault KWID Concept, at the 2014 Delhi Auto Show. The concept was designed with inputs from Renault Design India and is covered by the ‘Explore’ petal of Renault’s lifecycle-based design strategy.
The vehicle’s robust, yet fun design, along with its technology-driven features, is targeted at meeting the needs of young customers in these markets. The vehicle’s exciting proportions and dimensions as well as very short overhangs give the impression of a bouncing vehicle, while its oversized wheels protrude past the fenders and make the KWID CONCEPT look like a buggy car.
The interior of the KWID CONCEPT is designed to serve as a snug cocoon and is inspired by a bird’s nest. The vehicle’s seats, suspended over a solid base in white, give an impression of lightness, while their 2-tone elastomer material provides a sense of brightness.
It is for the first time that Renault has unveiled a concept outside of Europe. Renault is seeking to make its presence stronger in the Indian Auto Market.
