Renault Twingo review: Dynamique TCe 90 hits the streets

By 11 December 2014

Audi S1 review: Super supermini

By 26 November 2014

The Audi S1 is the baby of the German manufacturer's S family of sports models, but beefed-up to make it a super supermini. It takes this small hatchback from an appealing £14,000 to eyebrow-raising £24,000 and skywards, sailing over £30k for the model... >>

We've been driving around London in the continent's first electric sports utility vehicle, the Kia Soul EV. Despite having our reservations on initially seeing the unique shape of the car we were soon impressed. Even if this wasn't attractive because... >>

Mercedes-Benz C-Class first drive: Striking a balance between sporty and refined

By 11 November 2014

Comfort or sporting prowess? It's quandary that every car maker faces when launching a new car, and it seems particularly pertinent when considering the new Mercedes C-Class. It used to be said that stepping into a Mercedes-Benz should lower the driver's... >>

Mini 5-door first drive: Cartoon-style fun for the whole family

By 23 October 2014

Up until now, beyond the price differential, one key reason to overlook buying a Mini - beyond its cartoonish design - was the lack of rear doors. And with sales in this market splitting roughly 65/35 in favour of 5-door models, it's clear Mini thinks... >>

Kia Soul Mixx review

By 12 October 2014

The Kia Soul sits in the increasingly popular crossover segment of the market, taking something that's essentially a hatchback and giving it characteristics closer to that of an SUV. It's the follow-up to the 2008 original, now based on the Kia C'eed... >>

Lamborghini Asterion concept: The 910bhp hybrid beast that will (probably) never get made

Audi TT Sportback concept: Less concept than the name suggests

By 8 October 2014

The Audi TT Sportback perhaps qualifies as the major surprise of the Paris Motor Show as it was one of just a few uncertainties to be revealed. Although if you've been following Audi's strategy over recent shows, it should come as no surprise at all.... >>

Land Rover Discovery Sport preview: So does it replace the Freelander?

By 7 October 2014

When is a Freelander not a Freelander? When it's a Discovery Sport. From now on, the Freelander is dead. Instead it's replaced by the Discovery Sport as Land Rover changes the structure of its range, creating a series of sub-brands. So from now on, Discovery... >>
