PEUGEOT e-LEGEND CONCEPT Because boredom is not part of our DNA, because independence does not rhyme with monotony, because the energy transition will not erase 120 years of automobile history, PEUGEOT reveals e-LEGEND CONCEPT. This exciting vision of the future of driving pleasure takes the form of a desirable and iconic vehicle. By adopting a realistic and radically modern template, this projection into the future of the automobile magnifies the genes and the elegance of the heritage of the PEUGEOT brand. 100% electric power chain Perfectly incorporated into a realistic vision of the brand's energy transition, PEUGEOT e-LEGEND CONCEPT is powered by a 100% electric power train. With 100 kWh batteries, the engine reaches 800 Nm torque and 340 Kw power distributed to the four-wheel drive. This level of performance makes it possible to travel 0/100 km/h in less than 4s and reach a maximum speed of 220Km/h. The range is 600 km according to the WLTP protocol of which 500 km are accessible in 25 minutes thanks to a fast recharge. PEUGEOT e-LEGEND CONCEPT cultivates the zero technological constraint mindset by offering induction charging. Two autonomous modes: SOFT: favours the comfort of the occupants. Projection on digital material screens and information display reduced to a minimum, SHARP: accurate and dynamic vehicle typing. Maximum connection to digital activities possible (social networks, schedule, etc...). In autonomous mode, the PEUGEOT e-LEGEND CONCEPT interior configuration adapts: thanks to the by wire steering technology, the steering wheel retracts under the sound bar in order to fully clear the 49-inch screen, the front seats recline, the side armrests deploy automatically, freeing up a large storage area and an induction charging area for smartphones, the main controls remain accessible via the centre console integrated in the driver's seat. The occupants can then enjoy their favourite hobbies: play the integrated video game or watch a film either in the curved central screen or in each screen built into the sun visors. Two manual modes: LEGEND: cruising mode with recall of the three 504 Coupé dials and display of digitally-processed wood on the different screens, BOOST: dynamic and stimulating driving thanks to the powerful electric motor. 180° immersion with projection of the road on a single large screen. An athletic and sensual look To frame its technological vision, PEUGEOT e-LEGEND CONCEPT draws on the heritage of the brand. Wink, reinterpreting the great style themes of a fun vehicle, the 504 Coupé: a light, athletic, sharp and sensual silhouette, a cabin, arched towards the rear suspension, with large glazed parts. At the front, the look of the vehicle is identifiable thanks to a visual signature with three claws and two double modules. The technical area is located under the projectors, it includes all the functions of driving aids. The entire front mask is encased in the front wings and split in two by a black aluminium beam, a legacy of chrome-plated stainless steel bumpers. At the back, the iconic visual signature of the PEUGEOT range is also three claws and treated in a very technological way. The third brake light, located at the top of the rear window, covers its full width with a multi-blade assembly that reflects itself. The flanks are treated in three distinct layers with, in particular, an extension of the technical platform in the lower part and a large glazed area, inspired by the sheet metal/glass ratio of the PEUGEOT 504 Coupé. These large glazed surfaces flood the interior of PEUGEOT e-LEGEND CONCEPT with a beautiful light. The wheel arches are carved in negative and the one at the front includes an air passage. It is emphasized by a metal arch surrounding the side windows and magnifying a rear windscreen encased and faceted. Visible from the outside under the rear quarter windscreen, a screen displays a personalized greeting and the charge level to its user before departure. It also warns people outside that the car is driving in autonomous mode. The touch-opening door control is skilfully concealed in the side window. The body is a shade of grey subtly tinted with champagne, extremely tense. Depending on the outside light, the colour changes from a chrome reflecting its entire environment to a polished bronze metal look. The process used is similar to that applied to the bottles of the largest perfumers. The PEUGEOT e-LEGEND CONCEPT’s dimensions are (in mm): length: 4650, width: 1930, height: 1370, wheelbase: 2690.

The third-generation BMW X3 is better looking, packs more features and is more spacious too. It even has a sensible diesel engine which takes care of the power, while being light on the pocket. But, is the new X3 good enough to fend off stiff competition from its German rivals? And, is it the ideal SUV to keep your family comfortable while maintaining your status? Find out in this review.

BMW continues to consistently pursue the improvement of emissions in all combustion engines in summer 2018. As of July 2018, all petrol and plug-in hybrid models of the brand available in Germany will be fitted as standard with a petrol engine particulate filter and thus will already comply with the exhaust standard Euro 6d-TEMP. BluePerformance Technology including SCR catalytic converter with AdBlue injection has been a standard feature of all BMW diesel models since March 2018. This means they all offer highly efficient, multi-stage exhaust gas treatment consisting of NOx storage catalytic converter and SCR system (Selective Catalytic Reduction). Due to the particularly effective reduction of particulate emissions achieved, these comply with what will then be the most rigorous exhaust standard, namely Euro 6d-TEMP. In addition, another 39 diesel models will be going on the market with Euro 6d-TEMP rating. Additional model variants of the BMW X3 and the BMW X4 will be available from August 2018 onwards. As early as July 2018 there will be an increase in the number of models in the BMW 1 Series, BMW 3 Series, BMW 4 Series and BMW 5 Series which are fitted as standard with an 8-speed Steptronic transmission. Another newcomer to the model range is the BMW 1 Series Edition Metropolitan. For the BMW 530e iPerformance Sedan (combined fuel consumption: 2.1 – 1.9 l/100 km; combined power consumption: 14.113.1 l/100 km*; combined CO2 emissions: 49 – 44 g/km), the optional equipment item BMW Wireless Charging will be available ex works from July 2018. The option BMW Connected eDrive Services available for the BMW i and BMW iPerformance automobiles will also include the BMW Digital Charging Service in future. What is more, an aerodynamics package is available for the BMW i8 Roadster (combined fuel consumption: 2.0 l/100 km; combined power consumption 14.5 kWh/100 km; combined CO2 emissions 46 g/km).

The X3 is BMW's contender in the same class of luxury crossovers such as the Audi Q5, Porsche Macan, Jaguar F-Pace and Mercedes GLC. All of these you will see on Bangladeshi streets on a good, traffic-free day.
The first gen X3 popped onto the automotive scene like an unnoticed blister back in 2003. It was a big hit despite looking like several blindfolded designers were put to crafting the shape. The body lines simply refused to connect and flow together, much like Ali G-Star's rap lyrics. The oddly surprised looking face of the first X3 did not stop people from buying it. It provided agile handling in an SUV, something that drivers secretly wanted but no manufacturer provided.
The current 2018 model is the third generation of the series and it looks superb. The grills are larger and the headlights are squintier, while the curves are fluid and sharply creased at the edges. And it looks like the others in the series. So how do you tell it apart? It's just slightly smaller than an X5 and quite a bit bigger than an X1. The X3 differs in how it looks closer to a raised station wagon than an SUV. Or you could use a ruler. A quick help is the tail lights together in an X3 feature a notch much like iPhone X's. The X1 and X5 (available here now) offer traditional trapezoidal shapes.
The 4WD XDrive system prefers giving more torque to the rear at most times giving it that distinct push from the back each time you exit quickly from a turn. Remember, this is 'just' a 2.0 turbo charged engine. You can't really expect much from it considering the weight and the raised ride height. Yet, this thing will haul when you demand it. Triple digits happen far too quick and without any drama, fast enough that some cool fast car owners will be disappointed to see this SUV stuck on their tails without much fuss. There isn't any loud snorting, just a whoosh and it does what boy racers in their loud spoilered Hondas do while waking up the neighbourhood. I love how this thing delivers the power without screaming. 252 HP and 258lb-ft of torque consistently give 100kmph runs in just about 6 seconds. And most of that torque is available from around 1500 RPM, making it very easy to sprint ahead.
The interior is very well appointed because, well, it is a BMW. Interior is light and airy, letting you see out without much obstruction like in modern, thick pillared cars. The rear seat is almost a bench which offers a surprising amount of comfort without being unnecessarily stiff. Our M Sport packaged X3 did ride a little stiff over the numerous potholes. But that stiffness pays off brilliantly on roundabouts and while changing lanes. This is not a sportscar but the chassis is so well balanced, you will not stop smiling.
Mileage figures average to a little over 10kmpl in combined city and highway driving. But our pedal to the floor driving saw that dip just a little bit below. It is also roughly about 55kg lighter than the older model despite having more tech and a lot more 'go'.
It will competently manage more rough terrain than you will ever put it through. A roughly 8-inch ground clearance will tackle most of our off road needs. That means we will happily overcome all the ridiculously high speed breakers on our roads and navigate most of the waterlogging that accompanies the rainy season in Dhaka.
If you must have one car that gives you daily driving abilities but also provides a hint of sporty aspiration, then this is it. Consider it more of a grown-up'ssophisticated wagon that can also hustle when asked.
