The beginning of June brought a whirlwind of new SUVs. All are from premium brands


Premium brand customers who want a new SUV for next winter will undoubtedly have something to choose from. German brands BMW and Mercedes-Benz have introduced innovations designed for family use. In the case of BMW, it is the smallest SUV X1, Mercedes-Benz has shown a larger GLC class. And Land Rover wants to meet Defender 130 with many families. A total of eight people can be brought there.

You can see all these cars in our photo gallery.

It is also necessary to mention the new generation Lexus RX, which we have already informed about earlier. We were even invited to its premiere. But now we bring you basic information about the three remaining news items along with the Czech Toyota Corolly Cross award.

BMW X1 and iX1

At the same time, the Bavarian car showed the combustion of the X1 and the electric iX1. Compared to the outgoing version, the gift increased in length by more than five centimeters and reached exactly four and a half meters. Then the roof is 44 millimeters higher, the width is 23 millimeters larger and the wheelbase 22 millimeters. Active families will undoubtedly enjoy the increased capacity of the luggage compartment. It can now hold 540 liters, and 490 for plug-in hybrid versions.

The practice is also improved by the rear sliding bench, which can move in the range of 13 centimeters. The combustion variant is powered by two fuels and two diesel units. The basic version is called the X1 sDrive 18i and has a three-cylinder supercharged fifteen-cylinder under the hood. Its output is 136 horses. The two-liter four-cylinder already offers 218 hp and the designation xDrive 23i of course also means all wheels.

The new BMW 7 comes first with an electric drive. But outside Europe, it will be different

The diesel versions are called sDrive 18d and xDrive 23d. The first has an output of 150, the second 211 hp. Two hybrid plug-ins will appear in November. The less powerful version (245 hp) is called the xDrive 25e, the more expensive version has the xDrive 30e code in the stern with a potential of 326 hp. Purely on electricity, these cars travel about 80 miles.

The iX1 electric version has two built-in electric motors in its gut, offering 313 horsepower. Then the car accelerated from zero to 100 in 5.7 seconds. The battery has a capacity of 64.7 kWh and allows a range of about 420 kilometers.

Mercedes-Benz GLC

Years ago, a three-point star made a terno with this car. That’s why also the new generation hasn’t fundamentally changed its appearance. But the car grew by sixty millimeters (to 4,715 millimeters today), but the width remained the same and the same height decreased by 4 millimeters.

Inside, there is a dashboard, which is supposed to resemble the wing of the aircraft and has a central display with a diagonal of 30.2 centimeters. Among the new features, the connection of the driver’s smart watch, for example, is interesting. According to this, he assesses his alertness and suggests a break. There is also a special camera that allows a virtual view under the front wheels of the field. Rear wheel steering will also be available.

Mercedes-Benz AMG One

Mercedes-Benz AMG One finally ready to hit the road. With F1 technology

There will be a total of six engines offered. Electricity enhances the potential of all more or less. All-wheel drive is still available and there is always a four-cylinder supercharged two-liter under the hood. The cheapest version will be 200 4Matic, with a 204 horsepower output. The 300Matic 300 variant will provide 258 horsepower, the GLC 220d 4Matic diesel 197 horsepower.

There are three plug-in hybrid versions – 300e 4Matic, 400e 4Matic and 300de 4Matic. Batteries can ensure emission-free driving over 100 miles and can also be connected to a quick DC charger.

Land Rover Defender 130

The designers did not have much work to do on this version of SUVs produced in Slovakia. The 130 version leaves the same wheelbase as the 110 version, only extending to the rear by 340 mm. In total, the car reached a length of 5358 millimeters. Thanks to this, space was created in the rear for the installation of the third row seat, and a total of eight people can be transported to the interior.

They say that people sitting in the third row will not feel a lack of comfort. Even the heated seats with four air conditioning ventilation areas are presented here.

For those who prefer a larger suitcase and don’t need a lot of seats, there will also be a five-seater option.

Land Rover Defender Convertible

A roofless Land Rover Defender is being prepared. But it will not be of Slovak origin

The range of engines for this model has not been modified in principle. The base is a two-liter petrol turbo engine, you can also buy a three-liter six-cylinder and even a five-liter eight-cylinder. Diesel fans can choose a four-cylinder or six-cylinder unit.

And the price of the Toyota Corolly Cross?

This machine, which measures 4460 mm, will offer us at CZK 869,900. It already has 17-inch light-alloy wheels or a parking camera as standard.

Under the hood is a four-liter petrol engine, which cooperates with the electric motor to drive the hybrid. Together they will provide up to 197 horses.

The car can already be reserved. The first piece for customers will arrive in September.
