Zapping Auto Moto Test: behind the wheel of the restyled Peugeot 2008!
News of the week
First official photo of the 600th
The fact that Abarth has planned to transform the wise 600e is not new. We have known this for some time. Because the presentation is now close, the Scorpion manufacturer has just shared a first image allowing us to discover the lines of this wanton 600th. It promises !
Do you like the Audi RS6? Would you have enjoyed getting behind the wheel of a 90 IMSA GTO when it was racing competitively in the late 1980s? You will certainly love this RS6 GT which is intended to be a mixture of the two. To end its career in style, the station wagon receives this very limited special series which we present to you in detail.
5 Series Touring
There’s more to life than just SUVs. People who like to hunt on weekends can always opt for a break to take all their finds with them. A few months after the sedan, the Touring variant of the new generation 5 Series – still eagerly awaited by some – completes the range. Never change a winning team ? Be careful, just like the three-volume version, there are many changes, especially under the hood…
Illustration of the restyled Cupra Formentor
A real commercial success, the Formentor SUV allowed the Cupra brand to truly emancipate itself from Seat to the point of becoming just as essential, if not almost more so. One might have thought that the manufacturer would act with caution when restyling it. Not at all as you will be able to see for yourself!
Patents for the future Fiat Panda
Until then, Fiat had been quite successful in hiding its next generation of Panda. Yes, but no luck, a major leak allowed us to discover it in all its aspects during the week…
The one which now constitutes the gateway to the Ford universe and is incidentally the manufacturer’s best seller in our territory has just gone through the restyling box. If the changes are few on the outside, it’s a revolution in the cabin. Time for photos!
Despite ten years on the clock, there are no plans for the Renegade to retire. The proof is that he has just benefited from a second facelift. Even more than the Puma mentioned just before, the developments can be seen inside with a fairly clearly redesigned dashboard.
If its design no longer held any secrets, there remained many things to know about the convertible version of the CLE, replacing the C-Class and E-Class Cabriolet. Engines, features, price, we now know everything about it. All that remains is to try it.
New thermal Cooper
The British manufacturer is not (yet) finished with thermal technology. The proof with this new Mini Cooper. Don’t be fooled by its bodywork reminiscent of the electric model unveiled recently, this is the old generation which benefits from a very deep facelift (the 3rd!) giving it precisely the appearance of the electric Cooper. Like her, she also uses this name. From now on, all 3-door Minis are indeed Mini Coopers!
Already four years on the clock for Porsche’s large electric sedan. So it was high time to touch it up, and it’s done. Behind the trappings which ultimately only change relatively little, the Taycan 2024 aims above all to be more efficient and more efficient than ever.
Illustration du futur Renault Symbioz
The long-announced large-format Captur now has a name: Symbioz. A name worn a few years ago by an autonomous concept car. No particular fuss with this newcomer, an SUV (another one, some would say), which will be pragmatic. If it was only partially presented, Auto Moto is already able to reveal it to you in full!
Sketch of the restyled Octavia
There are few sedans that still appeal to the French, the Octavia is one of these exceptions. There is no question of distorting its lines, the facelift will be discreet. At the same time, it is also an old habit of the Volkswagen group…
Presented just a few weeks ago, the GR Yaris is already entering the catalog in France. If we feared that the wanton little chick would be penalized quite harshly by the penalty system, we did not expect such a slap in the face…
We were actually used to there being many vehicles unveiled at this time of year in the run-up to the Geneva Motor Show. However, despite its return in a few days after several cancellations, very few manufacturers will travel there. So we didn’t expect that there would be so many new features presented in such a short period of time. On Wednesday alone, there were no less than 6!
In this case, these are – in order of appearance – the restyled Porsche Taycan and Ford Puma, the all-new BMW 5 Series Touring and the new generation of thermal Mini (which is a major restyling of the previous one) , the Jeep Renegade which benefits from a second and undoubtedly final facelift as well as the Mercedes CLE which has finally taken care to disclose its technical characteristics.
A new SUV in the C segment at Renault
But the biggest news in recent days is undoubtedly Renault’s next SUV, the name of which has just been revealed. It will constitute the 4th elevated vehicle of the Diamond brand in the C segment and will take its place alongside the Arkana, Austral and Scenic. This Symbioz, that’s its name, it’s quite simply the elongated variant of the restyled Captur. We tell you everything we know and you can even discover it in advance in our panorama. Good discovery.
