HUMMER owners, friends and enthusiasts are being offered a unique opportunity to take vehicles to their limits in some of the most spectacular terrain in the world. The first HUMMER Driving Academy event takes place in Morocco from 7-12 November 2017 and will take a fleet of 14 HUMMER H3s on a 1300km route which includes the Sahara Desert.

After 16 years, the Scirocco has returned to the VW model range. A tradition that H&R is also glad to revive. And so the company from Lennestadt offers several chassis components for the relaunch of the Wolfsburg coupé.
The sports spring suspension kit lowers the vehicle by 35 mm, making the Scirocco not only more attractive to look at but also more dynamic in performance – without any noticeable loss of comfort. The spring suspension kit has been designed for use in vehicles with and without DCC (electronic chassis control).
Even more performance is possible with the H&R coilover suspension. Steering commands are implemented precisely; rolling and pitching movements are minimized. The system’s adjusting possibilities permit perfect adaptation of the vehicle wheel loads to the corresponding demands. And all within the range of the TUV-tested values, naturally. Highlights can also be set with the H&R TRAK+ wheel spacers made of a high-strength aluminium alloy, combined with either standard or tuning wheels.
Vauxhall has launched its first Astra ecoFLEX with a 1.7 turbo-diesel engine producing CO2 emissions of just 119g/km and fuel consumption of 62.8mpg on the combined cycle. The new model, which will be available in Hatch, Sport Hatch and estate guises, falls into the lowest BIK tax band for company car drivers, while private buyers will only pay £35 per year in Vehicle Excise Duty thanks to its band B credentials.
