To the right of the Motor Weekly logo is a preview of material about the Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale. In fact, we have already written about it, because it is a child of the Stellantis group. Furthermore, the cover does not reveal that there is any interesting material inside. Just looking at the table of contents shows that inside we will find material about the Citroën C8.

Motor begins with a lot of material about the Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale. We’ll get to it on page 4-5. Then it’s time for the most popular cars in 15 sections and there we will find models such as Dacia Sandero, Opel Corsa and Peugeot 208, Fiat Panda, Renault Kangoo, Dacia Duster and Peugeot 2008. The table below includes the best selling electric cars. Europe : Renault Mégane E-Tech Electric is here. In turn, the Peugeot 3008 appeared on the table in resale hybrids.

On page 8 we have upcoming premieres, including Renault 5, Dacia Bigster, Dacia Duster, Peugeot e-3008, Renault 4. Next to it is the news that Renault Master is clearly number 1 in Poland in terms of commercial vehicles .

Page 22 brings you a list of the most frequently stolen vehicles. This poor position is dominated by German and Japanese brands, but there are also cars from brands that interest us. In 2022 in the voivodeship:

  • Opole Region – 3 Renault Clios were stolen,
  • West Pomeranian Voivodeship – 5 Fiat Ducato units,
  • Lubuskie – 7 Fiat Ducato units,
  • Silesian – 26 Peugeot 508 (!),
  • Lower Silesia – Renault Mégane 18 pcs., Fiat Ducato 16 pcs.,
  • Small Poland – 6 Fiat Ducato units,
  • Greater Poland – 22 units of Fiat Ducato,
  • Świętokrzyskie – 4 Renault Master,
  • Pomeranian – 17 Fiat Ducato units,
  • Masovian Voivodeship – 84 units of Fiat Ducato,
  • Łódź – 10 Peugeot 508, 10 Renault Clio,
  • Podkarpackie – Fiat Ducato pcs 2.,
  • Lublin – Renault Master 3 pcs., Fiat Ducato 3 pcs.,

On page 28 you will find tables with actual ranges of car models of many types and brands – factory data and what was obtained during the test were compared. For example, Dacia Sandero 1.0 ECO-G achieves fuel consumption that is 12.8% higher than advertised, while Toyota Auris 1.2 is as high as 37%! Peugeot 508 1.6 THP 25.9% and Lexus IS 200 t 2.0 as high as 35.1%.

Page 30 first brings a small mention of the Renault Talisman and the user asks whether to buy the 1.5 dCi or 1.6 dCi version. Motor’s editorial team recommends buying the 1.6 dCi.

Later we have an article about the used Citroëne C8. This is definitely a car worth looking at, its prices for accident-free models currently start at PLN 9,900 (and not PLN 11,000 as they write in Motor) – see current ads for used C8 for sale. The text is very short and quite laconic, and indeed it is difficult to agree with the assessment that the C8 model is weak – it is rather one of the best designed cars in the MPV class. The search for knowledge is definitely better visit the C8, 807, Ulysse and Phedra group on Facebook.

On page 36 we find several French convertibles, starting with the big Renault Mégane II, then the small Peugeot 206 CC, Peugeot 307 CC and Peugeot 207 CC.

On page 43 you will find a small picture of the Citroën Type Holidays at the event discussing the Caravan Salon 2023 exhibition.

And that’s all written in Motora about the cars we love.
