ŠKODA KODIAQ L&K: Top version of the large SUV celebrates world premiere in Geneva
Mladá Boleslav, 15 February 2018 – ŠKODA AUTO presents the new top version of the ŠKODA KODIAQ at the International Motor Show 2018 in Geneva. The L&K equipment line is named after the company's founders Laurin and Klement. Among other things, a chrome grille, 19-inch alloy wheels and modified rear bumper round off its stylish appearance. The interior boasts leather upholstery and piano-black decorative trim. Dynamic petrol and diesel engines, as well as front or 4×4 drive, ensure powerful propulsion.
Powerful engines, advanced 4 × 4 drive, versatile control
The launch of the ŠKODA KODIAQ L&K brings with it a new engine range for the brand's large SUV. The range now includes a 1.5-liter TSI engine providing 110 kW (150 hp), and the 2.0 TSI engine’s output has increased from 132 kW (180 hp) to 140 kW (190 hp). The new petrol drivetrains feature particulate filters to reduce particulate emissions. This will be available for all equipment versions of the ŠKODA KODIAQ in the future. The latest generation 7-speed DSG for petrol engines and the 2.0 TDI engine with 110 kW (150 hp) are also making their debut. Another 2.0 TDI drive with 140 kW (190 hp) completes the engine range. The two strongest engines come with 4×4 drive as standard and is available as an option for the other two. The all-wheel-drive variants of the ŠKODA KODIAQ L&K also have Adaptive Chassis Control DCC (Dynamic Chassis Control) as an option.
Plenty of room for style, comfort and elegance
The ŠKODA KODIAQ L&K complements the outstanding qualities of the large SUV in terms of versatility and space with an elegantly stylish touch. It comes with 19-inch ‘Sirius’ alloy wheels, full LED headlights, a grille with vertical slats and chrome trim as standard. The front wheel arches feature badges with the words ‘Laurin & Klement’.
The appearance of the interior is enhanced with a three-spoke multifunction leather steering wheel, optionally available in black or beige leather trim. A subtle ‘Laurin & Klement’ logo can be found on the seats as well as on the trim strips of the instrument panel, which features in black piano lacquer accents. The logo can also be seen on the home screen of the infotainment system. The standard equipment also includes an electrically adjustable driver's seat including memory function, door sills, which bear the ‘KODIAQ’ model logo, aluminium pedals, textile floor mats, a rain sensor, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, ambient lighting and the CANTON sound system.

New Cool Performance Ford Edge ST 2018 Brings 335bhp.
The already great looking and handsome Ford Edge SUV will now look even cooler and sportier in the 2018 facelift. I tried the 2017 model Ford Edge in Europe last year and it really impressed me. Inside and out it looked great and had a premium feel about it. Interesting to see the new Ford Edge ST. The new Ford Edge will bear the name "Ford Performance" Edge ST. And will bring Ford SUV up in the calss with Jaguar F-Pace, Audi SQ5 and other premium sports SUV's. This fast crossover SUV from Ford is powered by a 335bhp 2.7-litre V6 petrol engine that develops 515Nm of torque; power is delivered through an eight-speed automatic gearbox and standard all-wheel drive. I can't wait to try this. Ford is a bit overpriced in Europe but offers great discounts. EuromanDriver.com

A Dangerous Snake Made it’s Way into a Mazda Car!
A red-bellied black snake found a new home in a Mazda in Australia. It settled in the engine of a Mazda. A witness saw what was going on and alarmed the owner. This is one of the biggest snakes in Australia, so it’s crazy how it made it’s way into the engine bay of a car.
Sydney Morning Harald writes that the owner of the Mazda hatchback, Michael Garbutt found a small note on his front window after a walk in a Sidney park. The note said: "Hi. This afternoon a red-belly slithered up into your front left tyre. Please be careful.” Then he opened the car's engine hood and the huge reptile curled up in the engine. "To say I was shocked is an understatement," he told the Sydney Morning Herald. "On reflection I don't think I would have put my hand out to pop the bonnet if I had known it was there.”
Then he called the local snake catcher and after one hour they manged to get it out. No one got hurt, but the snake was properly mad!
