Skoda Kodiaq’s top distinction from the Euro NCAP international organization

Five stars confirming maximum safety for all passengers from Euro NCAP conquered the new skoda Kodiaq and became the seventh model of the Czech company to achieve the highest score.
Euro NCAP rated 92% protection for adults, while the model also excelled in the side impact test offering top protection. The same applies to collision protection at the rear of the car. 
The organization also noted the effectiveness of the standard Front Assist, which works equally well at low speeds; as in a typical city driving; and preventing almost all possible collisions at higher speeds, such as on a motorway.

 The new Kodiaq protects not only the occupants but also the pedestrians with a special bumper design that reduces the size of the contact with their knees, while being rated high enough to protect the pedestrian basin and head.
Complete standard safety equipment includes up to 9 airbags, such as driver and front passenger, front side, curtain type, driver’s knee and rear side. 

The three-point seat belts are combined with straps while the rear seats feature an ISOFIX child restraint system. In addition, safety features are supplemented with equipment, such as automatic alarm activation in case of panic braking or collision (in combination with automatic door unlocking and fuel sealing). 

In the event of an imminent collision, the Crew Protect Assist prevents windows and ceilings and presses the front seat belts. If evil is done,
In addition, the model is provided with a set of cameras and systems based on radar and sensors. 

The “Front Assist” system in combination with the “City Emergency Brake” and the “Pedestrian Monitor” help to prevent pedestrian accidents. The four Area-View cameras show on the infotainment screen that the vehicle is in the surrounding area, while the Manoeuvre Assist and Rear Traffic Alert assist systems warn of hidden dangers in places with limited visibility. 

In China, BMW will produce cars for the European market

A few days ago, BMW received the coveted Chinese government license, which essentially turned on the green light to export models made in China to Europe or the US. 

The German company, after this development, is expected to increase its production line immediately, saying that the level of manufacturing in China has now reached almost the same level as Europe. 


“We have been licensed to export cars to Europe, but so far we have not decided on the number of vehicles, as demand for models in China continues to rise,” said China’s chief executive Olaf Kastner. 


BMW last year already had a production line of about 300,000 vehicles at factories 700 kilometers east of Beijing, near the North Korean border.

The German company – Already – is producing series 2 cars in China, and will start production of the X3 in 2018. 
“At the moment we do not know whether all production will be absorbed by the Chinese market or whether we will export to Europe,” Mr Kastner said. 


Note that Volvo is the first premium company to manufacture models in China and then exported to Europe and the US. Something similar had been done by Honda with Jazz before.

The new Seat SUV is looking for a name

The new Seat SUV is looking for a name

The name is looking for the new Seat SUV that will be Ateca’s big brother and will be released next year. The final decision on the name will be taken in September. The Spanish company is already launching a public nomination project on its new 7-seater SUV, which will be placed above the Ateca category. The basic criterion is that the name comes from Spanish geography as usual.
Note that the model has already received many name suggestions. “Seat has decided to invite all the brand’s friends to propose and later vote on the name of the new SUV that is going to make history. In our effort to launch the #SEATseekingName project, we redefined the formal process to engage the brand and fans around the world from start to finish, says company president Luca de Meo
The new model to launch the company in 2018 will complete the brand’s SUV family, following the successful run of Ateca and the new Arona that will make its debut in the second half of the year. Together with the new Ibiza and the new Leon, SEAT completes the largest offensive product policy in its history.   

Asteras Tripolis has officially announced the acquisition of Louis Carlos Farinia for one year in the form of a loan from Benfica. The 25-year-old midfielder, with statements on his new team’s website, said he preferred to come to the Asteras because of the way the club’s management approached him, promising to do his best for the Arcadian.

In detail the statement of Astera’s 10th Transcript acquisition: “The truth is, although I had some other suggestions, I preferred ASTER because I was interested in the project the team wanted to create for the coming years. The way in which I was approached by the ASTERA people, who showed me that they really want me in their team and believe in my worth, has also played a decisive role.

I want to be good at my health and then stabilize in the team’s eleven so that I can help the team get as high as possible. The most important is team participation, not individual.

My main characteristics are that I’m a pretty fast soccer player, an unpredictable soccer player, and I’m constantly trying to find opportunities for one against one that I consider to be my main weapon. I love going past my opponents and finishing the stages either on my own or sharing goals with my teammates, which is a great thing for me.

The applause of the crowd at the half time match (friendly with Panionios) pleased me so much. I certainly didn’t understand exactly what was going on because of the language, but I understood very well that the world welcomed me warmly, with applause, and this is something that leaves me very satisfied and confident that I am in a place I love. That way I will be able to show my best in order for the team to achieve its high goals.

What I do not negotiate is that in every fight, in every training, I will give 100% of my potential, with self-sacrifice, with the will and with the will to help my team. “
