Top and flop – the good and bad car news of week 37


Friday afternoon, half past three. The computer is turned off, the workplace door can close behind you, the weekend has begun. At Autoreview.nl we look back at the week that Ferrari showed off the brand new model and we saw that you can buy quite a few new cars for less than 18,000 euros. Good news, bad news. Up and flop.

+ Top – For those who want a classic electric hatchback or station wagon: Peugeot e-308

If you are looking for an electric car on a modest budget, you are relying on cars in the B segment, crossover, SUV or something very expensive.

You could say that the Volkswagen e-Golf is finally getting a successor.

+ Above – the gasoline Ford Mustang is not dead, it is alive!

With the arrival of the Ford Mustang Mach-E, you might have thought the days of the ‘real’ Ford Mustang were numbered. But no, the new one will come in 2023, with a five liter V8! We are betting on a power that is higher than the 460 hp of the current Mustang Mach I. However, we also shed tears. Ford says goodbye to the traditional double-arched dashboard design.

Due to all the international developments, many car manufacturers are forced to increase their prices. One of the latest models is the new Nissan Ariya. The electric Japanese with its beautiful interior is thousands of euros more expensive. We fear that many other vehicles will follow.
