Diesel Car - Issue 392 - September 2019

100 years ago, Andre Citroën started one of the most innovative car companies, one that would go on to become pioneers in the field of diesel engine technology. In this month’s issue, we celebrate the centenary of Citroën, and how it changed the perception of diesel power. We drive the Ami One and 19_19 anniversary concept cars, as well as an as new Citroën XM 2.1 Turbo D. We delve into Citroën’s history, examine the 10 best Citroën diesels ever and we were there in Paris when Citroën took its 100 year back catalogue of cars out to the public – and what a phenomenal reaction that got. This month’s used car buyer’s guide is all about the Citroën C4 Cactus, and we drive a recreation of the legendary Mehari, this time with electric power. If you’re a Citroën fan, you really can’t miss out.

Description

100 years ago, Andre Citroën started one of the most innovative car companies, one that would go on to become pioneers in the field of diesel engine technology. In this month’s issue, we celebrate the centenary of Citroën, and how it changed the perception of diesel power. We drive the Ami One and 19_19 anniversary concept cars, as well as an as new Citroën XM 2.1 Turbo D. We delve into Citroën’s history, examine the 10 best Citroën diesels ever and we were there in Paris when Citroën took its 100 year back catalogue of cars out to the public – and what a phenomenal reaction that got. This month’s used car buyer’s guide is all about the Citroën C4 Cactus, and we drive a recreation of the legendary Mehari, this time with electric power. If you’re a Citroën fan, you really can’t miss out.

We also have news of the all-new Vauxhall Corsa and facelifted Astra, in addition to the first pictures of the Audi Q3 Sportback and mighty SQ8 TDI packing 429bhp and a massive 664lb ft of torque. There’s also the all-new BMW X6, everything we know about the Kia XCeed, as well as the first information on the MINI Electric and eye-wateringly quick (and expensive) Lotus Evija. We’ve even got some sneaky pics of the new Cupra Electric Concept, set to be unveiled at the Frankfurt motor show next month.

There’s a cracking line-up of new cars tested this month, including the Ford Focus ST Diesel, BMW 330d, facelifted Skoda Superb, updated Jaguar XE and Nissan Navara, as well as the twin-clutch automatic Nissan Qashqai. Audi’s latest Q3 meets an old adversary, the Range Rover Evoque – which one takes the honours in our compact SUV showdown? In EcoCar, we’ve been driving the MG ZS EV, the BMW 745Le plug-in hybrid luxury saloon, as well as the Toyota Camry Hybrid and Ford’s Mondeo Vignale in Hybrid Estate guise. In our own long-term test car park, we welcome a facelifted Renault Kadjar to the fleet, as well as a seven-seat SEAT Tarraco.

And if all of that wasn’t enough, it’s the ‘69’-plate preview issue, and we’ve got a comprehensive checklist to ensure you get the best car you can this September. And there’s a cheat, too, as we tell you how to buy a pre-registered or used car, and make it look like you’ve splashed out new cash on your next car. Your work colleagues, friends and neighbours will never know!

If you’ve haven’t seen the facelifted Diesel Car & Eco Car magazine, then get yourself a copy now, because we’ve freshened the design and made it easier to read. There’s brand new features and items being added in every issue. That’s in addition to all your favourites, including Doctor Diesel, The Extra Mile, Marketplace and Legal i. And of course, we have the most up-to-date data section in the business. You really can’t miss it.
