Diesel Car & Eco Car – Issue 419 – December 2021

Amazingly, it’s four years since the mk7 edition of the Fiesta went on sale, and so it’s time for a facelift and we’ve got all the details of the latest car, including the sporty ST-Line version on the cover.

A new Range Rover doesn’t come along very often, and the latest issue of Diesel Car & Eco Car magazine has the full details and was present at its exclusive advanced unveiling. Read all about the plans to launch mild hybrid diesel versions first, followed by plug-in hybrid editions next year and a pure electric iteration by 2024.

Elsewhere, there’s news of Ford’s facelifted Focus, the all-new BMW 2 Series Active Tourer, the facelifted MG ZS EV and the brand-new Ford Tourneo Connect that shares a design with Volkswagen’s Caddy. There’s also much, much more than we can reveal here in this newsletter, across nine packed pages.

We’ve been driving the stunning-new Peugeot 308 in SW diesel guise and put the new Honda HR-V through its paces. The DS 4 in top-of-the-range La Première plug-in hybrid specification has been driven, as well as the updated SEAT Arona FR. Finally, we have the tests of the Ford Grand Tourneo Active and the Volkswagen Golf Alltrack. This month’s twin test features the Genesis GV80 vs the Volvo XC90 – which one wins in this premium class shootout. Our used car buyer’s guide is all about the Jeep Compass, and we welcome a Ford Kuga plug-in hybrid to the long-term fleet, while waving goodbye to the Skoda Octavia vRS.
