Incidentally, the top choices in this month’s international spotting are all from the German trio. A salubrious summer in Europe has allowed these carmakers to head out and test their vehicles on the city streets, Swiss Alps and the famous German race track. So here are the top international cars spied testing in the month of June.
Audi A6 Allroad
The Allroad is the newfound body style of A6 based on the Avant (estate). The Allroad test mule was hiding the black cladding all around. The widened wheel arches accommodate beefier tyres on the rugged version. Even the ground clearance is slightly higher than the standard car. Besides that, the roof rail on top is bigger too. However, rest of the styling is similar to the new-gen A6.
Mercedes’ first all-electric vehicle will be the EQC under the new Mercedes EQ brand. It will be based on their new electric vehicle architecture, called EVA, which will also underpin four electric cars of the new EQ range. It will have a 400kg battery pack with 300kW output motor at the rear and 90 or 150kW front-mounted motor on the front axle. This car is expected to be launched by 2020.
Mercedes Benz B-Class
The B-Class is the latest member to receive the new family design language. It will get a headlight design similar to the ones seen on the A-Class and the CLS. What´s more, the test mule clearly shows a silhouette similar to the outgoing car. The new B-Class will be offered in petrol and diesel engine options with a host of safety features and the dual-screen layout. It is expected to break cover at the upcoming Paris Auto Show.
BMW 8 Series Coupe
BMW has already revealed the all-new 8 Series Coupe during their return to the 24 Hours of Le Mans. We have included the prototype in this list just to see how the flagship coupe careens on the Nurburgring. The 850i gran tourer has a V8 under the hood, which is joined by the frugal straight-six oil burner in the 840d guise. The 8 Coupe will soon be joined by a Cabriolet, Gran Coupe and M variants.
