Top and flop: The good and bad news of week 44

+ Top – The new Toyota gets adaptive cruise control as standard

A car with a low price, just find one in the Netherlands. The new Toyota Aygo X will arrive in 2022 and will make it quite difficult for the Kia Picanto and Hyundai i10. The price of the basic version remains below 16,000 euros, but then you do get adaptive cruise control. And that’s very generous, from Toyota.

+ Top – Nostalgic for the 80s? Then buy a new Ford Sierra RS Cosworth!

Although, that’s easier said than done… The British company CNC Motorsport AWS builds only a very limited series of the new Ford Sierra RS Cosworth, for a price that starts at 185,000 pounds (about 215,000 euros). But then you have something!

– Flop – The Dutch should not have anything to do with car sharing: use of shared cars is low and will remain low

The car world would go from ownership to use, it was expected. The reality is less rosy: carsharing is not popular. There are just over 87,000 shared cars in the Netherlands, but they are rarely used. Only 0.2 percent of all car journeys are made with a shared car, a share that has not grown since 2014.

– Flop – How high are fuel prices this week?

What do you think? Of course fuel prices went up again last week! Compared to the last week of October, a liter of petrol has already become one and a half cents more expensive. Diesel consumers seem to be able to breathe a sigh of relief at the moment, because compared to last week the diesel price has fallen almost a cent.
