However, it is still not out of date, so we invite you to review the last automotive paper published every week in our country. And since you can see Renault Laguna, Dacia Duster and Opel Insignia on the cover, maybe there will be something to read.

On pages 8-9 MOTOR presented three pictures and included some text about them Opel Corsa facelift. Mokka is also mentioned there.
Dacia Duster Extreme and other models from this series – hybrid Jogger, electric Spring and Sandero Stepway – MOTOR presented on pages 10-11. This is the result of the presentation in Austria, where we are too. Editor Szewczyk rated Duster 4.5 stars, and the highest possible rating is five! This is the same result as the Porsche Cayenne described on pages 12-13. Of course, I am not saying that they are identical cars, but the result is the result. The Jogger Hybrid was also rated well by the Author.
Test DS 7 E-Tense 300 Opera found on pages 30-31. Editor Szczepaniak praises the exceptional comfort on board, as well as the dynamics of the 300-horsepower hybrid car. He appreciates the good finishing materials, the original and ergonomic design, as well as the quick operation of the infotainment system and the smooth driving power. An electric range of about 60 km was also praised. I liked the fuel consumption around 6.5 l / 100 km (city / extra urban).
In part Tips on pages 34-37 MOTOR offers spare parts prices by model generation. Examples include Citroën Xsara Picasso / C4 Picasso, Peugeot 406 / 407 / 508, three generations of Laguna, as well as Opel Vectra and Insignia.
On pages 38-39, the editors consider Is it worth paying for professional cleaning?and pictures of the Renault Megane E-Tech Electric were used to show this separation.
A reader asks about changing the engine in an Opel Insignia, and MOTOR publishes this question and answers it on page 44.
Next to it, the used Nissan X-Trail of the third generation was tested. The car performed better than average.
In part Used on pages 46-51 MOTOR presents 15 examples of young but simple. These include Renault Clio IV, Renault Megane III, Renault Laguna III, Dacia Duster I, Opel Mokka I, Opel Astra IV, Opel Insignia I, Mitsubishi ASX I, Fiat 500 and Alfa Romeo Giulietta
In the MOTOR Retro section on page 62, the material of half a century ago was recalled that Renault sold to Romania the license to manufacture 12 models, which in the Balkans was called Dacia 1300.
And that’s all MOTOR has written about the cars we’re interested in in the current issue.
