Mercedes-Benz refreshes its GLC SUV after nearly four years

The 2019 Geneva Motor Show is serving as a witness to the unveiling of the Mercedes-Benz GLC Facelift. It has already been nearly four years since Mercedes-Benz launched the GLC in autumn 2015, and now the German premium carmaker is refreshing one of its beloved SUV with some revisions on its looks and better technological features.

On the exterior, the updated Mercedes-Benz GLC features chrome elements running from the front to the rear end, a heavily contoured chrome radiator grille and a front fascia with three small rectangular sections. The grille is flanked by LED (light emitting diode) High-Performance headlights as standard, as redesigned to feature a smaller, more angular appearance. Optionally available are full-LED headlamps with MULTIBEAM technology. The front end also features daytime running lights with torch shape.

The rear section of the new Mercedes GLC is marked by some updates such as completely revised bumper and exhaust tips that now features sharp-edged trapezoidal outline. In addition, the rear end of the new GLC is fitted with redesigned full LED tail lamps that are now rectangular in shape.

European spec 2018 Ford Edge Facelift debuts with new biturbo diesel

The Ford Edge Facelift recently made its debut with a United States specification, and now, it is time for us to see the new Ford Edge with its European face. We are slated to see the company’s most technologically advanced SUV ever at the upcoming 2018 Geneva Motor Show in early March, just before it goes on sale in European dealerships this year.

Similar to its American relative, the refreshed version of the European Edge will receive a wider radiator grille with unique finish that is different from every trim level. What’s also standard across the range now are LEDs on both the headlights and taillights, with LED daytime running lamps, which can be added as an option.

Under the hood of the European Ford Edge is the same 2.0 liter diesel engine, as the company decided that no gasoline motors will be added. Another highlight here is that the EcoBlue version of the diesel will be utilizing an advanced turbocharging system that enables it to carry out 238 horsepower (175 kilowatts). Ford promises that they have worked on the low-end torque and noise, vibration and harshness, while providing smooth and linear acceleration too.

2018 Skoda Fabia Facelift gets mild updates, LED, new trim, more tech

After publishing a teaser design sketch last month, Skoda finally revealed the mildly updated Fabia Facelift in a hatchback as well as a wagon variant. The changes on its design are so subtle that you may not notice them right away. But we’re here to point these out for you. Let’s start off with the headlights and taillights. These now use LED tech, making the rear look like the facelifted Octavia.

Customers can now get a set of 18-inch alloy wheels exclusively for the hatchback version, which is a first for the Fabia. Both the front and the rear bumpers have been given some changes too but these are not very apparent. While these revisions are welcome, these probably will not get you so excited that you’d want to go straight to your dealership.

As for technology upgrades, the cabin has now been equipped with a 6.5-inch touchscreen that have Bluetooth, USB, and SD card connectivity. The car gets the Swing system as standard but customers can then opt for the Swing Plus and Amundsen setup if they want features like CarPlay, Android Auto, and MirrorLink.

2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Facelift gets more power and tech upgrades

The outgoing Mercedes-Benz C Class began production in the year 2015. And even though it may not be that old, the automaker decided to already give it a mid-cycle refresh and finally, it has arrived with the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan. The automaker recently just took the camouflage off the vehicle, before setting out to make its debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show in March.

When looking at the new C-Class sedan from the outside, changes seem to be very subtle but noticeable. For instance, the single bar diamond grille from the AMG Line now comes standard, surrounded by new LED headlights that are now standard as well.

The front fascia looks tweaked with horizontal fins in the side air intakes. The rear fascia has also been redesigned, now with an additional diffuser. The headlights and the taillights also got a minor design change and an LED upgrade, and the sedan now sits on a set of 17 inch twin five spoke wheels that are standard. Customers will now have more paint options like Mojave Silver Metallic and Emerald Green Metallic.

At the upcoming 2018 Geneva Motor Show next month, we won’t be seeing the all new Ford Focus. But there’s something else there that we’re sure you’ll want to see for yourself. The automaker’s entry level model in Europe, the Ka+, is currently going through some physical changes. Sources say that it will also come with an Active version, like that of the Fiesta Active that came out last year.

The pseudo crossover is more than just what’s apparent on the exterior. It has got a new plastic body cladding, and its suspension has been raised by about +23 millimeters / 0.9 inches. It now has a wider track as well as larger front anti roll bars.

The automaker also decided that they will tweak the electronic power steering as well, therefore making the Ford Ka+ Active feel more like a crossover when being taken out for a ride. Dampers had been retuned as well, enabling a smoother ride when driving on bumpy roads, while the new Active Rollover Prevention system has an updated security, for when you strap your luggage on the roof.

Since the Qashqai SUV was first released by Nissan in 2013, it has gone on to become the best-selling crossover in Europe. During the early part of this year, there were reports that the Japanese automaker may be releasing a revised version. That appears to be true as Nissan has officially unveiled the 2017 Nissan Qashqai Facelift during the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

Qashqai owners know that one of the benefits of this model is that it allows for a more confident drive. Even with the number of modifications, the new version is able to continue having that excellent outstanding performance. Because of the improvements done to the steering system, damping system, and the suspension system, the new Qashqai is able to offer a road experience that is more refined than usual.

With better utilization of absorption materials plus the glass in the rear being made thicker, it’s ensured that noise experienced in the cabin is lowered. The selection of the different-sized wheels help as well since they have all been optimized in terms of aerodynamics in order to maximize the efficiency.

Infiniti has enhanced the Q50 premium sports saloon, which makes its global debut at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show. With refreshed styling and holistic performance technologies, Infiniti Q50 was designed to empower and support drivers on the road.

New LED headlights are incorporated for a better visibility while slimmer LED tail lamps derived from the Q60 are in effect out back.

To spice things up, new model grades offer Infiniti customers a choice of two exterior designs. According to Francois Bancon, Infiniti Vice President for Global Product Strategy, each model grades offer a distinctive look and character.

Meanwhile, four-wheel drive versions have Torque Vectoring, Nissan's Xtronic transmission and 250 Nm of torque.

Nissan also added as standard steering wheel-mounted paddle shifts to control the eight-speed manual mode. Power increase means nothing without a proper sound and that’s why Nissan added a retuned exhaust system that delivers a better engine sound thanks to a larger diameter muffler.
