AutoWeek 9 will be in stores from Wednesday or will be on your doorstep this week. We drove the first fully electric Toyota for our continent: the bZ4X. Fancy pampering of the highest level? Then, just like we did, get into the new DS 9 E-Tense 4×4 360. We also put the new Volkswagen Taigo opposite the Opel Mokka and drove to the Alps in a Porsche Macan GTS with a luggage box on the roof.

We’ve fitted the fastest Porsche Macan with a gigantic anchor in the shape of a whopper of a luggage box on the roof. For once we do a test with some obstacles, in the orange Macan below, who is already wearing his ski suit. Let’s see how he holds up.

More luxury comes from the French corner. The DS 9, the flagship of the French car industry. To be able to hook up with the premium brands in this class, a fast top version should not be missing. And voilĂ , there is the DS 9 4X4 360, developed in collaboration with DS Performance and especially for those who miss their SM or CX Turbo. Do extreme comfort and luxury go well with sportiness? Marc Klaver figured it out.

As you can already see in the main photo, we put the Volkswagen Taigo and Opel Mokka next to each other. Was there still a gap between the Volkswagen T-Cross and T-Roc? Yes, of course! The Taigo fits flawlessly in between and with that we have the first SUV coupe in the B-segment. You can find all kinds of things about that, but we people want to be able to choose and that possibility has been expanded. Opel offers us the Mokka in the same price range. Do we choose an oblique box or do we keep it familiar and straightforward?

A tall model with a more conventional shape but with a less conventional powertrain, is the Toyota bZ4X. Perhaps the most discussed car here on AutoWeek.nl in recent months. We were finally able to drive it!

Of course, attention is also paid to used cars. For example, we have a double test between two station wagons. If there is one type of car that we can really qualify as the perfect all-rounder, it is the station wagon in the C-segment. Spacious, representative and also very responsible from a financial point of view. It is not for nothing that it is wanted as an occasion, especially by young families and based on this test duo, you have a lot of car for your money.

We have a somewhat unusual Clock Around this week. After 100,000 km of driving a Kia Proceed, it is completely disassembled to check the condition of the parts. While driving, the car gave the feeling that it had only just been broken in, but whether that image remains …

Finally, we have a considerable powerhouse as guest in ‘On the roller bench’; an Audi RS6 Avant. It is already very strong in itself, but owner Jeffrey Snoeij was not satisfied with that. His car, including Miltek exhaust, should deliver more than 700 horsepower. But that’s different…
