Audi e-tron review

Ever since Tesla burst onto the scene and started selling its high-end, high-cost EVs the constant refrain from around the car industry has been “just wait until the big brands catch up”. And we have had to wait, Tesla’s Model S has been on sale for seven years, and the Model X for four with […]

Jeep Wrangler review – 4×4 stays true to its roots

Jeep Wrangler review – 4×4 stays true to its roots

As far as iconic car names go Jeep is up there with the best of them. To many people the brand is synonymous with off-roaders in the same way that Hoover is with vacuum cleaners or Sellotape is with sticky-back plastic. It can trace its history back to America’s entry into the Second World War. […]

Citroen Berlingo review – check your ego at the door

Citroen Berlingo review – check your ego at the door

The Citroen Berlingo, like the Peugeot Rifter and Vauxhall Combo Life with which it shares a platform, is an MPV built on light van architecture. It’s a segment that lauds practicality above all else, prioritising masses of space in the boot (775 litres, 4,000 with the seats folded) to swallow up buggies, prams, wheelchairs and […]

BMW X7 review – high and mighty luxury

BMW X7 review – high and mighty luxury

With the introduction of its latest model BMW has completed its SUV full house. There’s now an X model for every range from 1 to 7 and virtually no niches left to fill. BMW are keen to point out that its new X7 isn’t simply a stretched X5 but rather a jacked-up 7 Series. The […]

Honda HR-V Sport review – a surprisingly sprightly SUV

Honda HR-V Sport review – a surprisingly sprightly SUV

The original HR-V was labelled the Joy Machine by Honda’s marketing bods back in the early 2000s. It was meant to appeal to young buyers with its “unique” styling and and blend the practical benefits of an SUV with a compact form. It was ahead of its time in many ways but was abandoned in […]

BMW X5 review – big bruiser is an oasis of calm

BMW X5 review – big bruiser is an oasis of calm

The BMW X5 is a car that exposes my terrible hypocrisy. If someone asked me if they should buy one I’d immediately tell them to buy a 5 Series estate instead yet every day I had it on test I looked forward to climbing up into the X5, sinking into its sumptuous seats and generally […]

Jaguar XF Sportbrake review

Jaguar XF Sportbrake review

In 2017 former Olympic skier Graham Bell broke the record for the fastest person to ski behind a car – hitting 117mph while being towed by a Jaguar XF Sportbrake. So somewhere in the heads of Jaguar’s PR bods it made sense to launch the updated 2019 model of the car by recreating that stunt […]

2019 Ford Focus review – ST-Line X makes its mark

2019 Ford Focus review – ST-Line X makes its mark

Ford say the all-new Focus is the most accomplished iteration of the model yet and it’s hard to argue. The outgoing model remained a class leader seven years on from its launch in the UK thanks to refreshed bodywork, new engines and the inclusion of ever more sophisticated comfort and safety tech. It was still, […]

Lexus RC review – coupe lacks the cutting edge

Lexus RC review – coupe lacks the cutting edge

Toyota is getting a lot of attention at the moment thanks to a little two-door sports coupe that has finally broken cover. However, tear yourself away from the photos and details of the inbound Supra and you’ll find that Toyota’s luxury cousin Lexus has been busy tittivating its own sporty little coupe – the RC. […]

Ford Ka+ Active review – more for your money

Ford Ka+ Active review – more for your money

Ford retired the once popular Ka model a number of years ago and replaced it with the larger, budget-orientated Ka+ in 2016. It’s too big for the city car class like the original Ka, so in theory it sits in the same segment as Ford’s top selling Fiesta supermini. Based on an Indian market model, […]
