On this edition of Drive it! we show how luxury and power can be combined optimally and demonstrate what rims may look like in the future.Present it: Mercedes S 63 AMGMercedes AMG is putting its new S 63 AMG on the road, combining exquisite comfort and power. The most powerful high-performance sedan in the luxury segment is placing new accents on driving dynamics, lightweight construction and efficiency. The AMG 5.5liter V8 biturbo motor with 430 kilowatts of power and 900 Newton-meters of torque guarantees top road performance.Inside it: Ford Future - Assist Systems of the FutureThe technology of the future includes new assist systems to provide more driving safety and comfort, but also alternative drive-train concepts. The Fiesta E-Wheel Drive, which Ford has developed together with Schffler, has an electric wheel-hub drive. Everything you need to drive, to brake, and for driving dynamics is found in the wheel rims. And Drive it! checks them out.Test it: Suzuki SX4 S-CrossSuzuki will be expanding its range of models with the SX4 S-Cross. The latest one is markedly bigger and more comfortable than the old SX4, which will still be on offer as the classic model. The SX4 S-Cross comes with front-wheel or intelligent all-wheel drive, with special programs for snow and sand. But its real habitat remains the road.
The SX4 S-Cross is built in Suzuki's European factory in Hungary.
Taste it: Audi A3 LimousineSince the Golf was launched 40 years ago, the fastback has established itself as a body form in Germany. But Audi is now swimming against the current, expanding its A3 family to include a classic sedan with a notchback and a separate trunk.
Which market has prompted this turnaround?Vintage: Volkswagen Rallye BugToday, the VW bug is a real cult car. But even early on, it was a trendsetter that inspired people's imagination. The first tuned bugs were already hitting the road 1951. Enthusiasts fitted them out with roll bars, bucket seats, and racing harnesses. Drive it! took a spin in a fiery bug granddaddy.
