You can read this in AutoWeek 6

AutoWeek 6 will be in stores from Wednesday or will be in your mailbox this week. In this issue you can expect a nice diverse mix of cars. For example, we drove the provisional top version of the BMW 4-series Gran Coupé, but we also went on the road with two well-matched hybrids and there is attention for a beautiful Mazda RX-8.

Long before it became popular, Toyota hybridized much of its range. This also applies to the RAV4, which was able to combine the popular SUV carriage with low practical consumption. Good idea, they also thought at Kia, which will now try to implement Toyota’s idea better with the new Sportage. Marco Gorter finds out whether Kia has done a good job.

The RAV4 is not the only Toyota that will be discussed this week, because we could already go on the road with the brand new Aygo X. For seventeen years, Toyota built the Aygo as part of a triplets together with Peugeot and Citroën. Now the Japanese are going to do it all themselves: here’s the Aygo X. Will anyone regret that the collaboration has been terminated?

As mentioned, the provisional top version of the BMW 4-series Gran Coupé is also discussed. You can already write half an edition of AutoWeek about the appearance, but what about the rest of the car? Well, as the M440i xDrive it turns out to be very powerful.

Mazda RX-8 - Flash Property

Besides a nice report about the Porsche 911 GT1 and a poster story about the Aston Martin Vantage, we have even more sporty fun in AutoWeek this week. Above you can see it: the extremely special Mazda RX-8. Soon there will be another model with a rotary engine in Mazda’s catalog, although the power source serves as a range extender for the electric MX-30 this time. For us, the signal to bring the last Mazda with a Wankel engine into the limelight. 23-year-old Ricardo Krabbenborg cherishes this Lightning Yellow RX-8 from 2005.

Of course, the well-known sections are also present again. For example, this week we have a 2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI Performance on the rollers that can prove whether Volkswagen can deliver on its promises. In Klokje Rond shines a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV from 2014. One that once started his life here among many of his brothers. With 306,000 km on the clock, we are curious whether the success story is really coming to an end or whether there is even more life for this plug-in.

Finally, we also bring in an electric car for a battery degradation test. This time a Hyundai Ioniq Electric from 2017 with 166,000 km behind it. The owner had the battery tested before he bought the car, but is curious whether the values ​​that came out are accurate.

All that and more can be read in the latest AutoWeek. It will be in stores from Wednesday this week. Would you rather not go out? Order from the comfort of your home the latest number. Then it will be delivered to your doorstep within two working days.
