AXA Gulf Introduces “Home Assistance” Emergency Repair Service

Published

on

AXA Insurance in the Gulf has introduced its “Home Assistance” Emergency Repair Service in the UAE. This service is available if customers are faced with unexpected situations at home and includes emergency repairs carried out by professionals. This is to secure customers’ homes and protect them against further loss or damage.

Although the number of fires at households is 7% less in 2016 as compared to the previous year, home insurance purchases have continued to increase in the UAE. The home insurance market has witnessed a steady increase in penetration over the last few years, even though it is not mandated by the authorities.

Commenting on this, David Cadoux, Chief Retail P&C, Actuarial and Data officer at AXA Gulf said, “There is a common misconception regarding the need for home insurance in this part of the world. People think it exists only to protect them from theft, which is thankfully a very low risk in the UAE. However, it is important to move away from this perception as a policy with AXA Gulf also includes cover against liability, relocation, as well as water leaks and fires.”

AXA Home Assistance Service is available 24/7 and provides a wide range of covers including:

  • Locksmith Services: Professionals will carry out emergency repairs if people cannot enter the home due to loss or theft of keys or damage to locks;
  • Electrical Services: Professionals will repair faulty or damaged internal electrical installation if there is a lack or failure of electrical supply;
  • Plumbing Services: Professionals will repair damaged or leaking pipes and fittings;
  • Glasswork Services: Professionals will repair broken external windows or doors as a result of an environmental accident or any hostile third-party action.

“When residents have a home emergency, it is not always immediately clear who is responsible for the repairs or the maintenance of the property, especially for tenants. Moreover, tower management does not usually address such requests on holidays and weekends, which is an added-value for our customers looking for an emergency repair service. This service enables an AXA customer to have a one-stop shop in the event that they have an issue in the property and need immediate support,” added Cadoux.

AXA Gulf is the first insurance company in the country to provide Home Assistance Service for home insurance customers in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

Lamborghini Announces the New Urus S

Published

on

Automobili Lamborghini has announced the Urus S: the successor to the original Urus that established a new Super SUV niche in the luxury segment. The Urus S delivers increased power combined with luxurious versatility and presence to confirm its status as the ultimate lifestyle Lamborghini Super SUV, alongside the new Urus Performante for those seeking maximum sports performance.

“The Urus has proven its appeal for those seeking the decisive combination of the sportiest SUV and a Lamborghini to drive every day: the Urus S sits perfectly alongside the new Urus Performante, for those choosing the purest sublimation of performance, luxury, and versatility,” said Stephan Winkelmann, Chairman, and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. “The Urus’ commercial success, with more than 20,000 vehicles produced, is testament to its credentials as the first and enduring Super SUV: the Urus S elevates that reputation.”

The twin-turbo V8 engine with increased power to 666 CV matches that of the Urus S’ Performante stablemate, delivering an improved weight-to-power ratio of 3.3 kg/CV. Acceleration is improved, with the Urus S propelling from 0-100 km/h in 3.5 seconds and 0-200 km/h in 12.5 seconds. With a top speed of 305 km/h, the Urus S brakes from 100 km/h back to zero in just 33.7m.  Its twin-turbo engine delivers 850 Nm of maximum torque already at 2,300 rpm up to a maximum 6,000 rpm. A retuned exhaust system reminds us that the Super SUV is a true Lamborghini, with a more distinct sound at start-up and a sharper note in each drive mode.

The Urus’ chassis with adaptive air suspension ensures super sports driving enjoyment but smooth handling on road surfaces, with immediately-available torque response and body balancing according to the particular requirements of its off-road drive selectors.  With the same powertrain calibration as the Urus Performante, the Urus S delivers optimum responsiveness and performance when required, alongside luxurious everyday driving pleasure from the Urus’ finely-tuned chassis settings.

The Urus S introduces specific and sophisticated design enhancements advocating its sporty but luxurious lifestyle persona, distinguishing the Super SUV’s presence in every environment. The interior of the Urus S is presented with a fully-revised color and trim offer. Both the new Bi-color Sportivo and a new Bi-color Sophisticated option feature the new Urus Performante stitching pattern.

The Bi-color Sportivo delivers a more discreet and stylish use of the complementary color; the Sophisticated black leather trim comes with new contrast color options in conjunction with refined new Blu Leandro and Verde Aura alongside tan, cream, and brown. Providing optimum opportunities for owners to specify their Urus S according to their lifestyle, the new color and trim options underline the high-performance credentials of the Urus S while delivering understated and timeless luxury.
