Hatchbacks for the higher segment

Techzle Classics 3: hatchbacks for the higher segment

There was a time when Audi still had to prove itself as a brand in the more expensive segments. Of course they did that with the five-cylinder engines, but also with the hatchback version of the Audi 100, which was called Avant. About 100 Avant 5 E shows its skills against contemporary Renault 30 almost 40 years later. The French were once the hatchback brand par excellence, and the top Renault model even did it with V6. This double test is the cover item of Techzle Classics 3, which is now in stores, but of course we have more! For example, why are various 80s models so indestructible that you often see them driving? We explain that in a story in which a VW Golf II, a Volvo 240, an Audi 80, a Jeep Cherokee and of course the Mercedes 190 shine. We delve further into the history of Volvo and went around the block with the Volvo 1800 ES in Sweden, a Citroën XM shines in the Clock Around Classic section this time. Like in every issue of Techzle Classics, we describe two generations of cars from the past where the successor represented a giant leap forward in model history. This time we are really looking for something higher and that is why the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud and the Silver Shadow in ‘The successor’ Naturally, Italian classic lovers will also find what they are looking for, with the Fiat 1100 De Luxe from 1959, which has been cherished for decades by one and the same owner.

The starting point for classics and young timers. Here you will find reviews, car tests and a selection of more than 7,000 classic cars.
