Five doors that are open to any adventure. With a dynamic design and efficient turbocharged engines. With outstanding digital connectivity that brings the whole world into the cockpit. With versatility, quality and cutting-edge assistance systems, offering both driver and passengers extraordinary comfort.

The customary identifying features are there to be seen, including the strongly emphasised front wings, the long, downward sloping bonnet with its power dome, and the characteristic three-piece air intakes, which are even larger and more dominant.
The front apron is new and powerfully styled – even when stationary, it alludes to the sheer strength of performance packed within. The LED main headlights have an optional LED matrix beam.
At the side, the sharpened lines of the roof descend sleekly all the way back to the roof spoiler. There are also newly styled doors and new, up to 22-inch wheels with – for the first time on the

For efficiency, all engines also come with electrical system recuperation, thermal management and the auto start/stop function with coasting function.
Another essential platform for enhanced efficiency and further improved performance:
Producing 404 kW (550 hp), the new 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine with twin-scroll turbines proves to be particularly powerful. The maximum torque of 770 Nm is achieved between 1,960 and 4,500 rpm. The sprint from 0 to 100 km/h takes only 4.1 seconds.
The rear seats, like the front seats, are designed to be either particularly comfortable or especially sporty and, therefore, also feature elevated side bolsters. Now even more flexible, they can be folded down in the ratio 40 : 20 : 40, offer 160 mm of fore/aft adjustment and boast 10 adjustment positions for the backrest angle (to 29 degrees). Depending on the model, the luggage compartment has a resulting capacity of between 745 litres and a maximum of 1,710 litres.

Sometimes there are several ways to reach our destination. These could be in the form of new developments, such as adaptive air suspension or rear-axle steering.
Adaptive air suspension enhances both driving dynamics and comfort. The use of three-chamber technology makes it possible to enjoy an even better combination of comfort and sportiness, because the spring rate is adjusted to suit the driving mode and situation. The air suspension also features a self-levelling function for a constant vehicle position, PASM and ride-height adjustment – so that you can actively vary the ground clearance as required.
A new benchmark in performance and design – the
The innovation behind this brake is the unique combination of a cast-iron brake disc and a ceramic coating (tungsten carbide). Advantages over the conventional cast-iron brake of a similar design and size: even better responsiveness and particularly high fading stability. Thanks to this new surface coating, the brake disc remains glossy even after a long service life. Brake calipers painted in white lend this brake its distinctive look. It is fitted as standard to the
Optional rear-axle steering is available for the
PDCC is an active roll stabilisation system. It registers the lateral inclination of the body induced by cornering from the very outset and suppresses it accordingly. The system also reduces the vehicle's lateral instability on uneven ground. The electromechanical anti-roll bars are new. These respond faster than their hydraulic equivalents and work more efficiently. The result: improved performance.
The LED matrix beam deactivates specific segments of the permanent main-beam cone. 84 individually controlled LEDs adapt to the situation by switching off or dimming. Vehicles in front or in the oncoming lane are no longer dazzled, while the areas in between and to the side are still fully illuminated.
In addition to all the PDLS functions, PDLS Plus also features electronic cornering lights and an Intersection Assistantbased on navigation data. As you approach a crossroads or T junction, the Intersection Assistant activates the left and right cornering lights and the light cone becomes wider and shorter – for enhanced illumination of your surroundings.
The full-colour headup display projects all the information relevant for the journey directly into the driver's field of vision. The driver is therefore less distracted and can fully focus on the road ahead. The information displayed includes current speed, navigation, traffic sign recognition, telephone, off-road stats and warnings from the vehicle assistance systems.
The brightness automatically adapts to the external lighting conditions. There is also a night and day mode and the height of the display can be adjusted. The optional Sport Chrono Package allows additional information to be included in the headup display.
Depending on the distance from the vehicle ahead, the system controls the speed of your
If you have set a certain speed and approach a vehicle that is driving more slowly, the system will reduce your speed by decelerating or gently braking until the pre-set distance is reached. Your
The auto stop-and-go function enables the vehicle to automatically restart after braking to a halt. If the vehicle stops for more than three seconds, briefly touching the accelerator pedal or releasing the steering column lever are enough to restart the vehicle.
The system eases the burden on the driver by providing steering assistance, helping to keep the vehicle in lane.
Lane Keeping Assist uses a camera to detect the divider line markings on the road and helps the driver to stay in lane by making corrective steering inputs (active from approximately 60 kmh).
The standard warn and brake assist significantly reduces the risk of collision with cars, pedestrians or cyclists within the system limits.
With the help of the front camera, the system detects an imminent collision with cars, pedestrians or cyclists and alerts the driver by means of a visual and acoustic warning. And possibly a brake jolt, if the vehicle approaches cars, pedestrians or cyclists too quickly. The driver's own braking is then reinforced, down to a complete halt if necessary. If the driver fails to respond, an emergency stop is automatically initiated to avoid a collision or reduce its impact.
When driving at night, Night Vision Assist provides the driver with information even beyond the range of the headlights. An infrared camera detects pedestrians or larger animals before they are illuminated. In combination with PDLS Plus, the marker light function briefly flashes the headlight at the pedestrian on the pavement or in the carriageway three times to alert the driver.
Quiet, please, as we introduce a total output of 1,455 watts, 21 individually controlled loudspeakers including an active subwoofer with 400-watt class D digital amplifier, two-way centre system and a total diaphragm surface area of more than 2,500 cm². Special air motion transformer tweeters ensure unmistakably fine, clear and undistorted high-frequency sound reproduction with excellent level stability.
All loudspeaker housings are perfectly matched and deliver superior bass foundation, definition and precision. The result is a natural and richly textured spatial sound, even at top volume. Particularly impressive is the new 3D sound experience, created by the loudspeakers integrated into the roof pillars and by the use of a special Auro 3D algorithm. The Sound Enhancer optimises the quality of music in compressed data format. The system also blends impeccably into the overall interior aesthetic thanks to the
The BOSE® Surround Sound System features 14 amplifier channels and offers a total output of 710 watts. Fourteen loudspeakers including a separate subwoofer ensure balanced, faithfully reproduced acoustics. BOSE® SoundTrue® enhancement technology delivers even better audio quality and dynamics for compressed file formats such as MP3. The patented AudioPilot® Noise Compensation Technology continuously measures the ambient noise inside the vehicle and automatically adapts music playback so that a consistent sound is maintained.
The Sound Package Plus offers excellent sound: ten loudspeakers with an output of 150 watts. The amplifier integrated into PCM optimally adapts the acoustic pattern in the vehicle interior to the driver and front passenger.
We offer a wide range of personalisation options. From a single alteration to extensive modifications.
