6. Citroen C4

Citroen C4

When the 2021 Citroen C4 was introduced last year, it came with petrol, diesel and electric (EV) engines.

The Citroen C4 is the first model in the company's electrification efforts, with the fifth new model to be unveiled in 2020.

Citro├źn said the new C4 would be the "full epitome" of the company's advanced comfort program.

This means that this car focuses on providing comfort to customers in the car.

As for the power plant, it depends on the flexibility. The available engine capacities are 1.4 L, 1.6 L and 2.0 L for petrol engines. Meanwhile, for diesel 1.6 L and 2.0 L.

With 5 or 6 speed transmission for manual, 4 speed for automatic, or 6 speed for automatic.

Power output is 175 hp at 7,000 rpm and 202 Newton meters at 4,750 rpm (for the C4 2.0 16v VTS model).

5. Land Rover Defender

Rusty Land Rover Defender accessories

There are two types of components associated with the Land Rover Defender. Originally a Land Rover Defender 110 with four doors and a long chassis.

The other, the Land Rover Defender 90, is two-door, short-wheelbase and cheap.

The Land Rover Defender 90 2021 First Edition uses the exclusive P400 engine. It's a mild-hybrid, 3.0-liter straight-six.

It is also used on other cars in the Jaguar Land Rover range. It produces 395 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque.

Mated to a slick eight-speed automatic transmission, the Defender 90 P400's 4,830-pound weight is no small matter.

With strong low-end torque, the 2021 Land Rover Defender 90 can easily traverse tough tracks. This is one of the advantages of a short wheelbase.

Acceleration is also decent. 0-96 kmph in 5.7 seconds. It's still less than the Jeep Wrangler's 392. It doesn't matter, the defensive V8 does the job.

Still, this short-bodied car has its advantage because it weighs significantly less than the Land Rover Defender 110.

Meanwhile, the Land Rover Defender 110 is a solid vehicle, having been awarded five stars in Euro NCAP-based crash testing at the end of last year.

And don't forget, our Italian colleagues at Motor1.com use the Land Rover Defender as their operational vehicle.

3. Volkswagen ID.3

Volkswagen ID.3 First Edition

On 12 February 2021, Volkswagen officially announced the launch of a new version of the VW ID.3 electric hatchback.

According to their press release, as well as the UK price list, the new ID 3 model will reduce the price of the entry-level electric car, although the range will not change.

The new VW ID.3 Pro will have less horsepower than the VW ID.3 Pro Performance, and a slower zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) acceleration time.

However, Volkswagen boasts that the VW ID.3 Pro Performance's torque is still better than the 148 bhp 1.5 TSI petrol engine found in vehicles like the VW Golf.

The VW ID.3 Pro itself has a 58 kWh (net) battery. The electric VW ID.3 Pro produces 143 bhp and 199 lb-ft (269 Nm) of torque.

In terms of speed, this car reaches 100 km/h in 9.6 seconds.

The VW ID.3 Pro Performance has the same torque rating, producing 201 bhp and hitting 62 mph (100 km/h) in 7.3 seconds.

2. Cupra Formentor

Cupra Formentor VZ5

The Cupra Formentor opts for Audi's 2.5 TSI engine, and rejects Volkswagen's similar approach with the five-cylinder Golf R.

The Spanish manufacturer's latest product is the Cupra Formentor VZ5, a sports crossover and the most powerful road car they've ever produced.

The inline-5 engine used in the Cupra Formentor VZ5 is often used by Audi for its various RS-badged compact cars, the RS Q3 and TT RS.

The new engine on the Cupra Formentor VZ5 produces 385 horsepower (287 kW) and 354 lb-ft (480 Newton-meters) of torque.

For comparison, the engine registers the same amount of strength in the RS Q3 and Sportback version, but a little more power in the Audi model, namely 394 horses (294 kW).

And, like the Ingolstadt-produced crossover, the new Cupra Formentor VZ5 comes standard with all-wheel drive and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The top model in the Formentor lineup accelerates from 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.2 seconds. Or, three-tenths of a second faster than the RS Q3.

Both cars are electronically limited to 155 mph (250 km/h). Full horsepower is available at 5,700 rpm and maximum torque is available from 2,250 rpm.

1. Fiat 500e

2020 Fiat 500e EV

Now we come to the top of the list, namely the car from the Italian manufacturer, Fiat 500e. Previously, the Fiat 500 underwent changes according to the time.

It's evolved from a small, slow (and a little noisy) hatchback to an electric-powered cruiser that's fast enough for the highway.

Despite the changes, this car remains the perfect representative of the Italian automotive world.

The Fiat 500 is getting more sophisticated and future-proof with the introduction of the Fiat 500e electric version.

In fact, the Fiat 500e recorded the best sales figures during the first quarter of 2021. In the period from January to the end of March, the sales of this car reached 2,058 registered units.

In fact, this figure beats the sales of electric cars like Tesla, which are very popular.

The Fiat 500 Electric is 100 percent made in Italy. As stated in the press release, this car is the first fully electric new generation for Fiat.

It has a range of 320 kilometers with the 42 kWh battery version. There is also an entry-level action version with a shorter reach.

The battery is charged with direct power of up to 85 kilowatts. So it takes only five minutes to cover a distance of 50 km.

It then takes 35 minutes to reach 80 percent charge. This is obviously very effective and can save time.

The new Fiat 500e has three driving modes. Normal mode is very close to gas car.

Range mode with one-pedal drive function, and Sherpa mode, which reduces power consumption.

The engine of the Fiat 500e is 87 kW. This allows this small city car to reach a top speed of 150 km/h and sprint from 0-100 km/h in nine seconds.
