Tested: Opel Mokka X 1.4 Turbo Cosmo

The bad accent

Is there still such a thing as a terrible car? While this depends entirely on your personal preferences (or own definition of the word), there are a few turds floating in the entry-level market segments. A little higher up, you sometimes get the odd disappointment though; like Opel’s new Mokka X.

Pad toets: Opel Astra 1-liter

Europese Kampioen van die jaar!

Wayde van Niekerk het bewys dat bultende spiere en ‘n groot lyf nie noodwendig beter is as goeie gene nie! Dieselfde kan van die nuwe Opel Astra met sy klein 1-liter enjin gesê word. Hier in die 1970’s was die vierkantige Kadett ‘n gesogte voertuig wat eerlike waarde vir geld verteenwoordig het…

Padtoets: Opel Adam S

Duursame, dog opwindende verrassingspakki
