Top and flop - the good and bad car news of week 12 (2023)

Friday afternoon, half past four. Computer off, the door of your workplace can be closed behind you, the weekend has started. On we look back on a week in which Dacia plays a positive and negative role and Alfa Romeo does what it can do like no other. Top and flop.

Top - Alfa Romeo Giulia is not yet electrifying

Alfa Romeo has had a rough few years and has announced a major electrical offensive to keep its head above water. But not just yet. We test the facelifted Giulia and that remains a car ahead petrolheads. Still ...

Top - Why refueling the very expensive Euro 98 (E5) is sometimes a good idea

Do you have to fill up with E5 (Euro 98) or not? You get a heart attack when you pay, but in the end it can be cheaper to pour this expensive stuff into your fuel tank. Should you do that too?

Top - Dacia Bigster is finally going into production

There are hardly any affordable cars left, but luckily we have Dacia. That comes with a large and affordable SUV: the Bigster. And it still looks nice too! One drawback: he is not coming to the Netherlands for the time being.

Flop - Even Mini makes the Dutch street scene more colorless

What a fun car the Mini Clubman is, with its double rear doors. Although we think the previous generation from 2007 is better. But Mini puts an end to the Clubman, which traces its origins to the gritty 1960s. The only positive is that there will be a limited farewell edition.

Flop - Who buys a Dacia Spring?

We love Dacia, but let's face it, the Spring sucks. Even if it is a hundred times the cheapest electric car in the Netherlands. Yet already 100,000 people bought one. These four used electric cars are a reasonable alternative.
