It will be mostly aluminum, but steel and constitutes 40 percent of its weight.Audi A8 2017, designed for China and the rest of the worldAudi A8 2017, designed for China and the rest of the worldAudi A8 2017, designed for China and the rest of the worldAudi A8 2017, designed for China and the rest of the world

We need to see the bumpers, grille and headlights future Audi A8, so we show recreation Computer made by our specialist, but Audi has left us see and touch their internals: a frame It aims to increase the comfort to new heights. Of course, with its ASF technology (from "Audi Space Frame"), Combination plates, beams and nodes, although completely revised. And we assume that the main lines of Audi Prologue concept that mark the main lines of the design.

Inside the Audi Prologue Concept, which foreshadows the interior of the Audi A8

Audi A8: Call Me multimaterial

Everything is ready to give the start button at the Neckarsulm plant (Germany), where it will occur again Audi A8, its fourth generation, which will reach customers after the summer.

There, next to naked bodies of the Audi A8, material specialists and Audi lightweight construction have explained to us how the new car will be so revolutionary that They have had to build a new body shop, a gigantic new building, where they coexist Robots 500 and 500 operators. The Audi A8 is still aluminum, but a formal issue: 58 percent of the weight of the frame is aluminum A8. And the rest? If a B-pillar and steel is placed in the Audi A8 third current generation to improve side impact resistance, the fourth-generation A8 It will take 40 percent of steel. With the Audi R8 sports experiences, understand the possibilities of carbon fiber and this is the third material becomes part of the frame of the Audi A8.

Steel and represents 40 percent of weight of the Audi A8, aluminum gaining ground

Minority, only 2.7 kilos, carbon fiber reaches the large series for the panel separating the boot compartment and which is in the same piece as the rear tray. The fourth is magnesium, which it is used for classical piece in charge of attaching turrets suspension as known in racing cars. Ad nauseum we heard that the important thing has been to place the right material in the right place.

The Audi A8, new benchmark in comfort

Audi want to get a comfort never seen. They believe that It is the current requirement of customers. That does not serve sophisticated suspensions or placing insulators, before that you have to get more rigid structure possible. Only then will ensure that the wheel does not reach unwanted vibrations, the body not shake and produce noises, the suspension actually works with the exact angles as designed. To that end stiffness materials have been selected, even if there were to reinvent construction methods. Say they have gotten, and that the future Audi A8 will have a 24 percent stiffer than the current Audi A8, but without specifying a value.

New construction methods allow more generous hollow door

Electrification is also comfort

Do not just think about shooting without noise, vibration, imperturbable ... old-fashioned. Repeatedly they reminded us of the need for a frame capable of accommodating batteries and protect, because once known the smooth flow of the electric car, the word comfort comes another dimension. The Audi A8 seeks to take advantage of it, but have not revealed what degree. We can suspect, after seeing concepts like the Audi Q8 Sport Concept, which was presented at the Detroit Motor Show. It is important to think that, although they have not spelled out what specific models have manifested themselves all I learned with the Audi A8 will pass to other segments of Audi. This may imply that future models like the Q8, the e-tron, future A6 and A7, for example, have much in common with what we have seen. Gluing, screwing, laser welding, rivets, tablocked, etc, no less than Fourteen joining methods in the new Audi A8, a collection of tecnolgías that leaves conventional resistance welding of other cars as marginal. And after all this, with so much effort and new materials, They admit the frame weighing 50 kilos more than before. This can only mean one thing: How much comfort have not gotten the Audi A8, if for it have accepted fatten!

Mercedes GLA. Touch settling new bases

Next to Mercedes GLC, the GLA compact SUV is the second SUV sales more weight in markets where it is present, and the first for the Spanish market.

Although recently renovated and improved -here have a test last model-, its completely new generation begins to take shape for make themselves known and sold in 2019. It is not, let alone a clean slate, but this model and all its derivatives MERCEDES Class A, CLA, etc- it has come time to give, industrially speaking, a big step forward, releasing therefore an entirely new architecture that will give more play and flexibility and range when making different versions and combine different mechanical parts. So, you will not see a major change in exterior design even under your skin, take the next GLA MFA2 platform. Plus lightness, plus battle, higher track width, plus cabin space, volume and mechanical load. Although the forms will remain continuistas, next GLA also volume gains to acquire more presence SUV. Within the environment it will rotate a design and concept closer to Class C and E, with plenty of digital displays -optional- protagonists box or dashboard clocks. But the GLA will have more surprises, and not just mechanical. Just change paragraph and see.

Mercedes SUV futureMercedes GLA Coupé. A peer

BMW has already taught the teeth X2, Jaguar already has its E-Pace ready for takeoff, Audi will not miss your appointment Q4... Mercedes is not willing to make way for competition. GLA on the future and on the same line as the GLC and GLE, compact coupe define a much more muscular and dynamic silhouette which, yes, will direct consideration in the interior capacity. It is not expected even a specific tuning nor a selection of the best engines the GLA range, where, incidentally, news ahead. Although there will still synergies with Renault for Diesel small, the GLA will have the own engine premiered in Class E, a modern and efficient 2.0 liters perfectly adapted to align platforms transverse engine and powers 150-190 CV, while gasoline breaks we only particulate filter on known engines, but also landed one 2.0 liters of new generation originally designed to use 48-volt technology.

Mercedes GLB, A GLA seven?

Basically, yes, but with its own name. It will measure about 4.55 meters long, but no "shall be eaten" the GLC, much less. It will be the seventh variant derived from the MFA2 platform as we've told you, premiered GLA, in particular its maximum expression dimensionally speaking. Greater functionality compared to GLA not only results in an higher total volume, but a clearly higher capacity, counting, depending on version, with a third row of seats. versions are also expected more "off-road" the GLA "atomized" with suspensions and wheels linked specific tensile 4Matic and electronics with defined mode for driving off-road warranty.

Mercedes GLC, back to the last screw

Although the Mercedes GLC will not fail to evolve in terms of design, equipment and engines, not until the next decade when they experience a generational change "real". And it will slipstream the currently most important for Mercedes model, the C-Class W206- -generation. will jump on both models to MRA2 modular architecture, evolution of the current MRA -Real Wheel Arquitecture- will bring not only new materials or less weight, but also greater flexibility to reconcile different propulsion technologies, between them, plug-in hybrids with up to 200 km of autonomy they leave leeway to fully electric EQ future. Also turn the AMG V8 improved, although between the two extremes s, great prominence of four-cylinder engines in petrol and diesel, without missing the appointment or the new 6-cylinder -here you have all the information of the new engine family or Mercedes- unpublished transmission technologies.

Mercedes SUV EQ futureEQ range SUV, the "others" G

Based on the EQ A Concept, he A SUV will be the first of the EQ to jump-start. By using a pair of electric motors, one per axle, It offers all-wheel drive available different driving modes varying, besides other parameters, the distribution of both engines force transmitted to each train, which can be achieved not only a good performance and agility on the road, but also a high tractability on complicated surfaces or, if necessary, off-road tracks. Do not, no new models will be highly specialized range for serious adventures, but will add versatility of use regarding the saloons bodies derived. They will use lithium-ion new generation with close to five hundred kilometers autonomy. It is rumored that a starting price slightly above 40,000 euros.
