En route for adventure!

SUVs are as popular as ever, whether luxury version or for wannabe explorers


Bentley Bentayga
The perfect balance between athletic allure and reassuring solidity, a sculptural car with elegant, timeless finishes. The Bentley DNA is evident throughout, from the four round LED headlamps and the broad radiator grille to the forceful familiar outline and the muscular rear flanks.


Mercedes GLC Coupé
As ever with this marque’s vehicles, the new generation’s undeniably sporty character and dynamics (chassis, steering, all-wheel drive...) are coupled with the highest level of safety and state-of-the-art driving-assistance systems.


Volvo V40 Cross Country
The grille and special skirts underlining its crossover credentials, this 2017 model is made for adventure. The signature LED headlamps reprise the Thor’s hammer theme, and as Thor is a protective god that channels Volvo’s stated ambition for there to be no more people killed or seriously injured on board any of the marque’s cars by 2020.
