14 WOEMA Thursday, July 27 2017 | NEW ERA Express your individuality with the new Volvo XC40 compact SUV With dozens of possible exterior and interior colour combinations, personalisation is at the core of the colourful new Volvo XC40, Volvo Cars’ first-ever entry in the compact premium SUV segment. The highly anticipated XC40, set to be revealed later in 2017, will complete Volvo’s three-tier SUV lineup with a distinctive car for a distinctive driver. The new XC40 takes Volvo Cars into new territory and allows its designers the freedom to create a car that brings a vibrancy, individuality and playfulness that the compact premium SUV segment currently lacks. “We wanted the XC40 to be a fresh, creative and distinctive member of the Volvo line-up, allowing its drivers to put their personality in their driveway. XC40 drivers are interested in fashion, design and popular culture, and often live in large, vibrant cities. They want a car that reflects their personality. The XC40 is that car,” says Thomas Ingenlath, Chief Design Officer at Volvo Cars. The new XC40 offers a broader and more playful colour palette, making it the most expressive model in Volvo’s portfolio and reflecting the outgoing personalities of its drivers. “Our customer research clearly showed that for the XC40 and for this segment, we needed a wider selection of colours and materials than we usually offer. As Volvo Cars has never designed a car like the XC40 before, we could start from scratch and give it energy and playfulness,” adds Robin Page, Senior Vice President Design at Volvo Cars. Street fashion, city architecture, high-end designer goods and popular culture were all sources of inspiration as Volvo’s design team defined materials, patterns and colour options for the new XC40. “We took inspiration for the XC40 colours and materials from many different sources, mixing them and putting them back together into something cohesive. What we created is a car with a tough attitude that feels fresh, energetic and confident,” says Ebba Maria Thunberg, Vice President Colour & Materials at Volvo Cars. On the outside, a broad selection of colour combi- Robin Page, Senior Vice President Design at Volvo Cars. nations range from a solid, monochromatic theme, to dual compositions in vivid colours that lend themselves to self-expression - while the interior options deliver a truly youthful and premium feel. New interior colour choices in the XC40 include warm Lava Orange carpets, Oxide Red upholstery and a range of new and distinctive trims and materials with designs inspired by urban architecture and cartography. Natural, feltbased carpets, headliners and door inserts deliver a modern Photo: Quickpic touch. “Our Momentum trim level is the most fashion-oriented of the line-up, with vivid exterior colour combinations, while the R-Design and Inscription trim levels reflect a more dynamic and premium feel,” adds Thunberg. Mazda’s latest newgeneration model, the CX-8 will serve as the flagship of the brand’s SUV lineup. Photo: Quickpic Mazda Reveals Exterior of New Mazda CX-8 Crossover SUV Mazda Motor Corporation has revealed the exterior of its upcoming six to seven crossover SUV, Mazda CX-8. The company’s first newgeneration model to feature three rows of seating is scheduled to go on sale in Japan before the end of the year. Mazda’s latest new-generation model, the CX-8 will serve as the flagship of the brand’s SUV lineup. It’s a new kind of crossover SUV for people who both appreciate quality and need to seat more than five. It has the looks, performance and high-end feel customers expect from a Mazda, yet even adults can sit comfortably in the third row. Mazda designers worked to add a new dimension of maturity to the KODO-Soul of Motion design theme for an enduring edgy look that will continue to excite customers for many years to come. As the flagship SUV in the market, the focus was on creating a look of class and quality, and every interior part was chosen in careful consideration of color and material. Aiming to become a brand with which customers feel a strong emotional connection, Mazda will continue advancing its lineup to offer all customers both driving pleasure and outstanding environmental and safety performance. The New flagship Mazda CX-8 Crossover SUV will be available in Japan this year. Global roll-out has not been confirmed. GWM rewards loyal customers Photo: Quickpic Great Wall Motors (GWM) first hit the southern African market back in 2007. When GWM - Great Wall Motors - first hit the southern African market back in 2007 with a range of hardy, no-nonsense, well-priced bakkies, not even the wildest optimists could have predicted just how well this Chinese brand would fare. But soar it did, and in the past decade well over 55 000 GWM vehicles have found new homes in Mzansi alone. More than that, these machines have proved incredibly durable. The vast majority are still pulling daily duty, and let it be said that many a GWM works for its living. And works hard at that. But the company has also carved out a niche by offering incredible customer support - something that’s born out by its new Loyalty Program. A program aimed at GWMs from 2013 and before, with owners getting discounted parts and labour. So service your out-of-warranty GWM at an authorised GWM dealer and you’ll enjoy a 10-percent discount on labour and original parts. Plus - get this - with every fourth service, parts are free. That right. Totally free! Gratis! Also available is a discount of up to 50 percent on repair parts. Qualifying is easy. There are no dodgy terms and conditions here. The vehicle must simply be out of factory warranty, and consecutive services must be done at an authorised GWM dealer. Naturally these discounts are applicable to scheduled services. Vehicles with extended service or maintenance plans are excluded. As GWM (now trading as Haval Motors SA) explains, this is just one little way they’re thanking South Africa and their customers for the phenomenal support over the past 10 years. Or as that famed GWM payoff line has it: “Focus. Dedication. Specialisation” And in this case, with GWM’s Loyalty Program, there’s special emphasis on the middle word: Dedication!
