    Volkswagen Golf GTD review

    By 10 April 2014

    If logic is followed and the status quo is upheld, then the Volkswagen Golf GTD is a shoo-in for a five star review. When we saw the regular Golf Mk7 last year, we called it "all the car you'll ever need - no more and no less". So you'd expect a diesel...

    Hands-on: Mercedes GLA review

    By 27 March 2014

    When is off-road not really off-road? When you're 550 feet down a salt mine, that's when. We didn't arrive here by accident, mind, for this is the location of the Mercedes GLA launch. And it's perhaps the most unusual place we've ever been in a car. Mercedes-Benz...

    Hands-on: Jaguar F-Type Coupe review

    By 21 March 2014

    This is it: the Jaguar F-Type Coupe has arrived. Arguably the most eagerly anticipated car of 2014, it's one that's tantalised us for over two years, ever since it was first shown in concept form as the C-X16 at the Frankfurt Motor Show 2011. And it's...

    Hands-on: Alfa Romeo 4C review

    By 20 March 2014

    You would think more car events would happen in the Isle of Man. For a start, out of the towns and villages, the speed limit is derestricted. That doesn't mean 60mph, it means there is no limit. The Isle of Man loves motor vehicles though, and the craziness...

    Mini Cooper D review (2014)

    By 14 March 2014

    The Mini Cooper heralds the arrival of the classic small car in its third-generation release since BMW re-imagined the brand back in 2001. A lucky 13 years on and the Mini Hatch is stronger than ever. That's not down to luck though. It's a car filled...

    Hands-on: Mini Cooper S (2014) review

    By 11 March 2014

    The Mini Cooper is one of those cars that's a timeless classic; a car that, as Brits, we have an inevitable soft spot for. BMW's re-imagining of the Cooper back in 2001 was the right balance of the German brand's know-how without it unhinging that loveable...

    Mazda Hazumi pictures and eyes-on: Mazda 2 concept car has awesome moniker

    By 7 March 2014

    If there's a prize for car with the coolest name from this year's Geneva Motor Show then we think it would have to go to the Mazda Hazumi concept. Although, really, it's less concept and borderline reality and what you're currently feasting your eyes...

    Volkswagen T-Roc pictures and eyes-on: The open-top SUV concept

    By 7 March 2014

    Now here's a concept: an open-top SUV. And at the Geneva Motor Show that's exactly what Volkswagen had to show in the shape of the VW T-Roc. It's a crossover car concept that almost out-Jeeps Jeep. Despite what "convertible SUV" might conjure in the mind...

    Jeep Renegade pictures and eyes-on: Fiat merger brings new 4x4

    By 7 March 2014

    If you think that the Jeep Renegade looks a little like a Fiat on steroids then you are indeed onto something: because the Renegade is the first Jeep since owner Crysler merged with Fiat at the beginning of this year. It's not actually on steroids, of...

    Maserati Alfieri Concept pictures and hands-on

    By 7 March 2014

    Maserati is 100 years old in 2014. So at this year's Geneva Motor Show the company presented itself with a self-proclaimed birthday present, the Alfieri concept car. Named after one of the original Maserati brothers, the 2+2 coupe concept is, so the company...

    BMW 2-Series Active Tourer pictures and hands-on

    By 7 March 2014

    Yes, you are looking at a BMW. A front wheel drive people carrier called the 2-Series Active Tourer. We’ll just leave that to sink in for a minute. The brand that almost entirely defines itself by its rear-wheel drive cars and has the ability to create...

    Mini Clubman Concept pictures and hands-on

    By 7 March 2014

    We’re not huge fans of the original Mini Clubman. The adverts are cool, the brand heritage is cool, those barn doors on the back are kind of cool too - but the whole bizarre 3-door element just left us cold. That’s all just changed. Because the Mini...

    Toyota FV2 pictures and eyes-on: Tron-like concept ‘car’ that you won’t be driving in the future

    By 7 March 2014

    You are looking at the Toyota FV2. We know, it’s one of those things that’ll make you cock your head to work out exactly what it is and what's supposed to go where. Originally announced at the Tokyo Motor Show, it’s taken until the 2014 Geneva Motor...

    Volkswagen Golf GTE pictures and eyes-on: Mean meets green

    By 7 March 2014

    We first wrote about the VW Golf GTE in late February when the hybrid car was announced. But after seeing it at the Geneva Motor Show it's impressed our retinas enough to feel the need to feature it once again. It's not the first electric car we've seen...

    Renault Twingo pictures and hands-on

    By 6 March 2014

    Renault started the supermini revolution back in the late 70s with the classic Renault 5. It did it again with the first generation Twingo in the early 90s - a car that never came to the UK. So it's perhaps not the greatest shock to see the company reinventing...
