nternational Motor Trading Agency (IMTA) has unveiled the allnew Mazda3 which is now available at the company’s showrooms in Sitra and Tubli. The vehicle adopts a matured design language that attempts to embody the essence of Japanese aesthetics. Despite sharing the Mazda3 moniker, the hatchback and sedan models have distinct personalities—the design of the hatchback is emotive, the sedan elegant. The powertrain lineup comprises the latest Skyactiv-X, Skyactiv-G and Skyactiv-D engines, each of which provides responsive speed control in any driving situation. Based on its philosophy of designing the car around the human, Mazda has dramatically enhanced the fundamental driving attributes such that accelerating, turning and braking feel completely natural. IMTA is also planning to showcase Mazda’s signature model MX-5 in the near future.
NEW MODEL DEBUT
ehbehani Brothers showcased the launch of the latest offering from Porsche, the fastback SUV Cayenne Coupé. The much-anticipated new model has a new body shape, which brings to mind the 911. It features the same 3.0-litre, mono-turbo V6 as the standard Cayenne, generating 335hp and maximum torque of 450Nm. This can be turned into a 0-60 sprint in 5.7 seconds. Other engine sizes are also available. The new model carries two spoilers, very big on street cred, one of which is adaptive and extends at high speed increasing downforce to the rear axle. A standard feature is a large panoramic fixed glass roof. And, as always, with the Porsche DNA, you can expect both the performance and appearance the connoisseur is accustomed to.
