Stéphane Lémeret (Belgium)

My judgement is based on following grounds:

Alfa Romeo Giulia

How can you resist? It’s difficult for an amateur of beautiful cars that are nice to drive not to vote for this car, which is surely the best Alfa for at least 40 years! Why not give it 10 points then? Because you can’t turn off the ESP (which is ridiculous considering the car’s philosophy), and the interior could be better finished.

 

Citroën C3

You can compare its flaws to those of the Peugeot 3008: on the one hand, the multimedia system and ergonomics should be reviewed, and on the other hand, the seats are too soft …It’s a shame because the concept of this C3 is very pleasant and its technology merits a greater care for the points mentioned above.

 

Mercedes Clase E

This car is nearly perfect, but in my eyes it hasn’t really brought anything new or exiting to the car world. Which stops me from giving it more points… but not from thinking of buying it if I was looking for such a classic car.

 

Nissan Micra

The Micra is surprising, even more dynamic to drive than its look suggests. It doesn’t really have any flaws, but doesn’t really bring any great innovations either, hence this rating that doesn’t really reflect its great qualities.

 

Peugeot 3008

The 3008 is evolving towards a more marked SUV tendency, which is positive. Dynamic behaviour, good engines, not forgetting the practicalities…Well done! But the uncomfortable seats and mainly the complicated and inefficient multimedia system stop me from giving it more points.

 

Toyota C-HR

The proof that a SUV of a generalist brand can be nice to look at and pleasant to drive. It’s a real revolution for Toyota, who, apart from the GT 86, has not given us any such extravagances for quite a while. A trend to pursue, with more powerful engines this time ...

 

Volvo S90/V90

It’s the antithesis of the Alfa Giulia! But it assumes it fully, by privileging a zen attitude, comfort, an impeccable finish, efficient engines... But as far as I’m concerned, I need more driving sensations, more exciting engines, and less intrusive security systems.
