The German car manufacturer Mercedes has decided to completely stop the production of its A class in three years, writes the daily "Handelsblat". Production will be discontinued from 2025, and no variant of the A class will be produced from then on, according to sources from the concern. According to Handelsblatt, Mercedes will also suspend production of the B-Class. Both models, as stated, are considered unprofitable in the company. Mercedes announced in May that it plans to focus on luxury classes, and wants to sell more S-Class models, but also Maybach and AMG. Thus, whoever wants to buy a Mercedes in the future, will have to reckon that the cheapest model will cost from 40,000 euros onwards. And the class,…

The Lada Granta in the Classic edition is devoid of the shackles of electronics, and its engine emits exhaust gases into the atmosphere as it did a quarter of a century ago. According to the announcements, the naked Grant has gone on sale, Index.hr reports.

But is that really the case? Colleagues from the editorial board of the French newspaper automobile-magazine.fr wrote about this, on the example of the seventh-generation Wolfsburg hatch. In principle, buyers of vehicles like the Golf, whether new or used, are looking for a practical and reliable car. When we talk about the seventh generation of this model, it can be said that it is a vehicle with a good finish, comfortable, practical in…
This Porsche Boxster is ‘under the skin’ in fact Toyota MR-S The prices of sports cars have risen in the last few years, so it is becoming increasingly difficult for many enthusiasts to get one. A cheaper solution for some is a replica, and this Toyota MR-S "dressed" in a Porsche Boxster is a really worthy candidate. On the Kaidee Auto ad, the replica really leaves a good impression of a German sports car for much less money than the original. Both the front and rear grilles have been changed to give the impression of a Porsche. The front bumper is a bit different from the real 986 Boxster and is more in the style of the newer generation 718.…

According to that decision, the speed limit for autonomous vehicles will be raised from 60 km / h to 130 km / h. Changing the tape would also be allowed. The proposal has yet to be approved by the UNECE World Forum for Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations, which meets from June 21st to 24th, but the move is considered a formality.
