Top and flop - the good and bad car news of week 40 (2023) -

Friday afternoon, half past four. Computer off, the weekend has started. At we look back on a week in which two small cars from Mitsubishi and Suzuki took the leading role and the likeable Subaru disappointed. Good news, bad news, top and flop.

- Flop - Chinese car brands don't make much of it anymore

How all those Chinese car brands sellthat actually flood the Netherlands? Well, with two exceptions, it's actually really bad. Stubborn as we are, we have a free tip for the Chinese.

- Flop - Can't Subaru really come up with something better!?

Subaru celebrates the European introduction of the Subaru Crosstrek, the successor to the Subaru XV. You would expect that this will be a brand new and ultra-modern model that can give a boost to flagging sales. We therefore look with anticipation for hard news in figures. After some searching we find it. It is 4.5 inches long...

- Flop - The American Rivian is celebrating its big losses in a big way

33,000 euros, that is the loss on every car from the American manufacturer Rivian. But it is celebrated as if the brand has just won the Champions League after a nail-biting penalty shootout, and after reading this message you understand why.

+ Top - Volkswagen will not be discouraged

We sometimes feel sorry for Volkswagen, because of the flood of bad news. Layoffs, product postponements, software problems and disappointing EV sales: the transition to the electric age is not always smooth. But over the next three years, the brand will do what made it big: building cheap electric cars. Slim!

+ Top - The new Suzuki Swift does not participate in strange fads

Look at all those car brands struggling with their design and image. But not Suzuki. The new Swift (2024) exactly meets the expectations of its buyers. No inappropriate hipness or crazy fads. Just a compact car that will undoubtedly drive well, complete with a recognizable appearance and a reliability that is the envy of the Bank of England.

+ Great - It's nice that the Mitsubishi Colt is back

Yes yes, the new Mitsubishi Colt is as Japanese as a smelly blue cheese. Everyone sees the similarities with the Renault Clio. But actually the collaboration between Renault and Mitsubishi is very well thought out. Read our Mitsubishi Colt review!
