We will inform you further about private lease. We also test a Renault Austral, a Nio EL7 and a Lexus RZ 450e. In Klokje Rond this time an American battleship, and what is on the Rolling Bench is also impressive. We take a look at contract automakers and see what we’re missing from the Toyota Sienna. With the Austral, Renault has produced a considerably better product than the Kadjar. To date we have only driven it as a Full Hybrid with 200 hp. Does the positive impression remain if you choose the base engine, a mild hybrid with only 130 hp? Lexus’ first EV, the UX 300e, was a very half-hearted effort. They seem to realize that at Lexus too, so the development of the second EV has been approached a lot more seriously. Whether that also leads to better chances remains to be seen. In this Buying Guide we analyze one specific model: the Volkswagen Golf VII 2.0 TSI GTI. The Golf is timeless, but of course has to keep up with the times. That works very well for him. And the GTI? That is a special case, and in a positive sense. They build cars for large car manufacturers and small start-ups: the so-called contract manufacturers. The major changes that are taking place in the automotive industry offer these companies great opportunities. You can read that and more in AutoWeek 11, which will be in stores from Wednesday.
