The testing of the Volkswagen Touareg R plug-in hybrid and Hyundai Bayon, a match between the Suzuki Jimny and Jeep Renegade, the discovery of the Opel Manta ElektroMod and a report on the latest Fast & Furious, this is the summary of the TURBO program broadcast on Sunday June 27 on M6.
This week in Turbo, Dominique and Safet take us to the Strasbourg region, in Alsace, at the wheel of the latest addition to the Hyundai family, at the cutting edge of technology and with a futuristic look, the Ioniq 5. They will visit Bruno Scheurer, owner of a dealership specializing in supercars, who gave them the keys to his Jaguar Type C, a 1950s racing car that twice won the 24 hours of Le Mans. It was also the opportunity for Dominique and Safet to visit Dominique Heintz, Director of Sébastien Loeb Racing, and Christian Schann, a fan of old Bugattis whom he resuscitates with the help of his son.
VW TOUAREG R eHybrid, SPORTY AND VIRTUOUS
This is a first, and it is a shame: a sporty R version of the Touareg, it has never existed until now. It was not until today, the most hostile period to the big beefy inflated with hormones, to be entitled to a supercharged Volkswagen Touareg. In every sense of the word: watts, horses, chrono, but in plug-in hybrid. We expected a hybrid SUV like the others, we end up with an athlete in the hands. Funny athlete with 300 kg of battery, to please the standards. But in today’s climate, that might be the only chance of survival for edgy SUVs. The Touareg R therefore belongs to a mutant species: the sports juggernaut with plug-in sauce, a rolling object that is difficult to identify.

SUZUKI JIMNY / JEEP RENEGADE, SMALL 4X4 WITH THE LOOK OF BAROUDEURS
Stéphane Capela / Safet Rastoder
Suzuki Jimny! As soon as it was presented, orders exploded. The demand was so enormous that Suzuki had to stop its marketing, delivery times reaching 2 years! But apparently, it was not crippling for some! For others, there is a solution: this utility version! In front of him, the Jeep Renegade. Undoubtedly an indisputable bestseller in Europe and France. It is the smallest model in the Jeep range. But the Renegade is bigger, a lot more modern, and a lot more expensive than the Jimny. It is also the only plug-in hybrid offer in the segment. We have tried everything to make the Jimny a little more competitive even if they do not play in the same court, however nothing is won in advance because the strength of the Suzuki is precisely its rustic spirit. ‘Ancient !
