Lamborghini Aventador LP720-4 50° pictures and eyes-on

Happy Birthday to Lamborghini from all of us at Pocket-lint. The company that’s forever trying to kick sand in Ferrari’s face is celebrating 50 years of car-making this year. And as a birthday present to itself, at the Shanghai auto show this weekend... >>

Mercedes A Class 250 BlueEFFICIENCY engineered by AMG pictures and hands-on

By

There is very little that would have persuaded us to buy the old A-Class. It might not have been a bad car, but it wasn't the sort of vehicle we could get excited about. We've encountered it in Europe in hire-car form, and the basic model didn't exactly ooze the... >>

Maserati Ghibli pictures and hands-on

By

Maserati is on a mission. Having played second fiddle to Ferrari in the posh Italian brand hierarchy for so long, it’s gone on a product offensive, the main aim of which is to make you pick one of its cars over a high-end Jag, BMW or Merc.Given that... >>

By

We've always had a soft spot for coupés, so when Audi presented us with an A5, chopped the roof off and stuck on an RS badge, there was plenty to be excited about. Because one of our favourite coupés just become one of the hottest convertibles on the... >>

Audi RS6 Avant pictures and hands-on

By

Most people won't have the money to buy an RS6, because with a starting price of around £77,000 it could hardly be described as a mass-market car. But there are plenty of people around who do have the money, and are looking for a high-performance car... >>

Audi R8 Spyder V8

By

The Audi R8 is the fantasy sports car for many. A car with stunning looks, handling that's universally lauded, and a badge that tells you that inside, things are going to be relatively practical.The R8 Spyder takes that foundation, adds a clever folding... >>

Alfa Romeo Giulietta 1.4 TB MultiAir 170 Sportiva

By

Having tried, and been rather impressed with, the ball of energy that is Alfa’s 170bhp, 1.4 "MultiAir" engine a couple of weeks back in the Mito, we couldn’t help wondering what kind of Alfa options were available if you needed a bit of extra space... >>

Mercedes-Benz G-Class G350 BlueTEC pictures and hands-on

By

The G-Class, or as it's more commonly known, the G-Wagen, is a car for rappers. Of course, you don't have to be a rapper to buy one, but you need to have their money and desire to move quite a large entourage around in absolute luxury and comfort. It... >>

Ford Fiesta Titanium 1.0 EcoBoost

By

There's a saying that goes "There's no replacement for displacement". It is, unsurprisingly, used mainly in America, where car engines verge on the larger capacity. It's not uncommon in the US to be driving around strapped to a 5-litre engine. That's... >>

Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG roadster

Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG roadster

By

"It's not a hairdressers car is it?" the man from Mercedes said as we got out of the SLK 55 AMG roadster. His question probably came from two things, the first being the reputation that the original SLK garnered back when it launched. A reputation we've... >>

Volkswagen Golf GT 1.4 TSi

There is no car quite like the VW Golf. The default European choice of motoring appliance, it is possibly no more and no less a car than you’ll ever need.But some people have a different view. Seeing this new Golf for the first time at the Paris motor... >>

Citroen DS3 Cabriolet

By

In a world obsessed with the cult of retro, the Citroen DS3 stands out against the likes of the Fiat 500 and Mini. Its looks would make even Marty McFly do a double take, with a futuristic design that is as eye-catching as it is functional.You see the... >>

Alfa Romeo MiTo Cloverleaf
4.0 stars

Alfa Romeo MiTo Cloverleaf

By

The hot hatch falls into two distinct categories: understated and exaggerated. Think Golf GTI or Vauxhall Astra VXR, each has its merits and they are clearly targeted at different markets, but crucially both are about adding some fun to your driving.For... >>

Fiat Panda 4x4
4.5 stars

Fiat Panda 4x4

By

The Fiat Panda 4x4 has a real go-anywhere, do-anything feel about it. A light clutch, raised suspension and fairly impressive traction even with a tiny TwinAir engine, make it genuinely feel like a capable off-road vehicle.Fiat has been making some excellent... >>

Nissan Qashqai 1.6 dCi n-tec+

By

Last year in the UK, Nissan sold more of these high-spec “n-tec” trim-level Qashqais than Ford did Mondeos. Consider that for a moment. This one trim level of the Qashqai now outsells the entire range of a car that just a few years back was Britain’s... >>

Ford Fiesta 1.5 TDCi

Ford Fiesta 1.5 TDCi

By

Let's make one thing very clear, the Fiesta is probably not the car you think. When Pocket-lint was a young, newly qualified driver, the Ford range was a lot simpler. It went, Fiesta, Escort, Sierra and then Granada. The progression was from basic in... >>

Lotus Evora Sports Racer

Lotus Evora Sports Racer

The Lotus Evora is a really important car for the British performance brand. Unlike the Elise of Exige, it is designed to sway those who would be considering something like a Cayman S over to the Lotus way of doing things.Here is a sports car that you... >>

Lotus Exige S (2012)

By

Driving a car like the Lotus Exige isn't the sort of thing that translates well into the written word. We can explain how well connected you feel to it and the road, and how taut and controlled it feels, but honestly, the only way to understand is by... >>

Audi TT 2.0 TFSI S tronic
4.5 stars

Audi TT 2.0 TFSI S tronic

By

The Audi TT has something of an image problem. The original, with its curvaceous arches and bubbly behind, quickly became stereotyped and although this model, the second-edition TT is much more aggressive in design, much of that stigma still exists.When... >>

Hands-on: Vauxhall Cascada review

Hands-on: Vauxhall Cascada review

By

The Vauxhall Cascada is the company's latest attempt at shaking off its rather grey and glum reputation. It follows on from the likes of the Adam and Astra GTC, both far more shapely than anything Vauxhall had offered previously.This is also the first... >>

And now for something completely different. Having brought you the skinny on the supercar wars going on between Ferrari, Lamborghini and McLaren - with a not exactly attainable Rolls Royce thrown in for good measure - we’ve saved the best thing from... >>

Here at Pocket-Lint, we’ll only bring you content and reviews on stuff that we’ve spent time with. So although the McLaren P1 concept was "unveiled" last September in Paris, we’ve waited until now to bring you details because back then it was an... >>

Ferrari LaFerrari pictures and eyes-on

By

The Ferrari LaFerrari, what do we know of this, Ferrari’s flagship hypercar – successor to the 2005 Enzo and before that the legendary F50 and F40? Well for starters, we can tell you that it’s absolutely huge. It might be low, but while McLaren’s... >>

Lamborghini Veneno pictures and eyes-on

Lamborghini has always had an amusing relationship with Ferrari. It was set up by a man who built tractors because he got annoyed with old-man Ferrari’s less than bothered attitude towards fixing his personal Ferrari when it broke. And ever since, the... >>

3.5 stars

Nissan Juke Acenta Premium 1.6L

By

The Nissan Juke Acenta is, well, it's rather hard to describe without diving into a whole stock of synonyms for "unusual". Yes it has four wheels and vaguely resembles a five-door hatchback car-meets-SUV, but it's an unconventional design to say the least.For... >>

You would think reviewing a Caterham would be easy. Put foot to floor, world melts, smile appears on face. That sort of thing. But there is so much more to a Caterham than excitement. This is a car that your life revolves around.Get out of it and you... >>

Tackling a Land Rover Experience day with the all-new Range Rover

By

The first time Pocket-lint jumped into the new fourth-generation Range Rover was in Morocco. The weather was hot, the terrain soft and fast, but the relevance to a UK driver virtually nil. While it showed us what the "all-new" Range Rover could achieve,... >>

The Citroën DS3 is a car that turns heads. The compact hatch brings dramatic design to Citroën's line, with the company shifting more than 200,000 DS3 models since the launch in March 2010.The latest addition to the range, announced at the Paris Motor... >>

It may seem like the quintessential Italian big saloon car, but this new Quattroporte (sounds sexy, but in Italian it simply means "four door") has been redesigned primarily for China.You see the old car, svelte though it was, was a little cramped in... >>

There’s no getting round it. Whatever interesting nuggets we tell you about the features of the new Lexus IS, or however interesting we reckon the car’s general looks are, whether you like it is probably going to come down to what you think of that... >>

Don’t believe the concept name, this is your new 3-Series coupe. After being hit for six by the Audi A5-which up-ended this coupe market by introducing an altogether different body style to the saloon A4 - BMW has responded by repositioning its coupe... >>

C7 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray pictures and hands-on

By

It’s not exactly exaggerating to say that a new Corvette doesn’t come along every day of the week. So perhaps it’s unsurprising that the new "C7" Corvette, which ushers back in the famous "Stingray" name too, is on the front of every US paper this... >>
