Drive it!: The Motor Magazine
This week, Drive it! presents the newest compact sports car, but also how drivers can be more ecologically sound and save money in traffic with the new electric compacts and with computer apps that find the cheapest gas stations.Present it: Seat Leon CupraSeat presents the Leon Cupra, the new top model in the Leon series. It is powered by a two-liter engine available in two output levels, 195 and 206 kW. This makes it the marque's most powerful production car. It goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds and has a top speed of 250 km/h.Test it: Lancia Ypsilon S BY MOMODESIGNWith design by Momo, Lancia has given its compact, the Ypsilon, an even more extroverted look. The Ypsilon S has a two-tone paint job: the matte black hood and glossy black radiator grill are an expressive contrast to the apron and lower body in red.Taste it: VW Elektro Up!The electric version of Volkswagen's smallest car is the first electric vehicle you can actually buy from a VW dealer. It costs almost 27,000 euros -- twice as much as the classic, gasoline-powered Up. And there are more than 4,000 publicly accessible charging stations in Germany.Examine it: Fuel price appDrive It! looks for the cheapest gas prices using the most modern method, namely gas price apps for mobile devices. Gas stations have to report their prices to Germany's Federal Cartel Office, which then provides the data to various online platforms where consumers can access them.Users then enter their location and are shown nearby gas prices. But are these prices actually accurate? Drive It! did some spot checks and found out how much use gas price apps really are.Vintage: Morgan Three-WheelerThe 1936 Morgan Three-Wheeler F2 two-seater is one of the last examples of a very special kind of vehicle. Between 1909 and 1953, some 30,000 three-wheelers like it were built in Malvern, England. Morgan's reasons for making these unusual vehicles are more economic than technical ones.It used to be possible in England to register a three-wheel vehicle as a morotcycle rather than a car, making it an attractive option for young families looking to save money on their vehicle tax.
