CC Global: 1994 To 2018 Ordinary Rides – Nothing To See Here Folks, Just Move Along!

1994 VW Golf 1.6 CL - 1

Plain, mostly older cars. No one ever pays attention to them. Ideal CC material, in other words! Let’s start right away with this tour’s most senior curbsider, a 1994 Volkswagen Golf Mk3 1.6 CL.

1994 VW Golf 1.6 CL - 2

Mind you, the sought-after Orlando-edition!

2009 Toyota Land Cruiser 120-series - 1

2009 Toyota Land Cruiser 120-series - 2

2009 Toyota Land Cruiser 120-series 3.0 D-4D, the LWB five-door model, not converted into a commercial vehicle. In many markets, light-duty Land Cruisers (currently the 150-series) are marketed as the Toyota Prado.

2003 Ford Ka - 1

2003 Ford Ka - 2

2003 Ford Ka. These are powered by an almost antique 1.3 liter four-cylinder, yet they all came with factory go-kart handling.

2002 Volvo S80 D5 and 2001 VW Golf 1.4

2002 Volvo S80 D5 (with Volvo’s own 2.4 liter, inline-five turbodiesel) and 2001 Volkswagen Golf Mk4 1.4.

1998 Daihatsu Charade - 1

1998 Daihatsu Charade - 2

Daihatsu left our market years ago, but this 1998 Charade is still going strong.

Tractor dealership parking lot - 1

This is the parking lot of a farm machinery dealership. The cars must belong to either employees or visitors. Probably there would have been five pickups in a row, if this business were in the US.

Tractor dealership parking lot - 2

Instead, from left to right: 2018 Renault Twingo 1.0, 2000 BMW E46 316i (with the 1.9 liter M43 engine), 2017 Opel Mokka X 1.4, 2011 Suzuki Swift 1.2 and last but not least a 2005 Fiat Punto 1.9 JTD.

The one that stands out is the Twingo, because of its rear-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout (and for the most part it’s equal to the Smart Forfour). Nevertheless, the generations after the original, first gen Twingo were letdowns.

2006 Suzuki SX4

An oddity, this 2006 Suzuki SX4 4×4.

2012 Toyota Aygo and 2004 VW Golf

A-segment vs Golf-class C-segment: 2012 Toyota Aygo 1.0 and 2004 Volkswagen Golf Mk5 1.4. Given its rally-raid looks, the Golf must have been on or near a big construction site or has been driven through an agricultural area. Either way, the roads were smeared with mud for sure.

As an aside, my country’s best selling car in October 2020 was a Volkswagen alright. No, not the Golf Mk8, but the electric ID.3.

2015 Peugeot Partner 1.6 HDi

2015 Peugeot Partner 1.6 HDi panel van with a small, dedicated trailer for transporting scaffolding materials.

2002 Volvo S60 2.4

2002 Volvo S60 2.4 (inline-five, gasoline).

2010 Ford C-Max 1.8 - 1

2010 Ford C-Max 1.8 - 2

The last one, for sale and a special offer, this 2010 Ford C-Max 1.8-16v. Manual transmission, 125 hp, only 90,462 km on the clock. The asking price is € 7,990. For What It’s Worth.
