Techzle 8 will be in the shops from tomorrow or will arrive on your doorstep this week. What are you reading in our packed magazine this week?
The traditional MPV segment is no longer, but there are also SUVs that offer plenty of space. What about the recently refined Peugeot 5008 and the Seat Tarraco? The changes are clearly visible on the Peugeot, while the Seat has been refreshed a lot more subtly. Jan Lemkes found out which of the two looks best after his refresher.
Those who prefer to keep it a little more modest in size, can turn to Opel for the brand new Mokka. In terms of appearance, the car takes a completely different approach than before and, thanks to its basis, known from the Peugeot e-2008, is now also available as a fully electric Mokka-e. We drove that, because we are of course very curious about what kind of car Opel has to offer.
Okay, back to bigger cars. We also drove the Audi Q8 60 TFSI-e. That is on paper a very ‘green’ SUV, since it has a plug-in hybrid powertrain. Whether the big Audi also shows something of its ‘environmentally friendly’ approach in practice, or whether it is just a very strong mastodon, you can read in our first driving test with it.
Other perhaps more interesting news from the Volkswagen Group stable comes from Porsche. After all, we saw a Taycan with a higher rear for quite a while. Is it the Taycan Cross Turismo or the Sport Turismo? A Taycan that only offers more space, or one that puts you a little higher above the road? In Techzle 8 we have the answer and we can even tell you how the car drives.
All good, but not everyone can just buy a Taycan or an Audi Q8. There is also plenty of attention for the more modest fair. We tested three Japanese compact models: the Toyota Yaris, Mazda 2 and Honda Jazz. Also all used copies. If you are in the market for it, we will gladly tell you which of these three we would go for.
If you want to tackle it even cheaper, in terms of purchase, you can of course also go for a 28-year-old Buick Park Avenue. Then the meter starts to run properly once you start driving. Finley Siebert also finds out, because in addition to the fact that his Buick with 359,000 on the counter likes a sip, the garage owner’s bill also finds it interesting.
All this and more can be read in the latest Techzle, which will be in stores this week from Wednesday. Would you rather not go out? Order from the easy chair the latest number. Then it will be delivered to your door within two working days.
