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... >>

London plans to test new camera-equipped pedestrian crossing signs that will recognise how many people are waiting to cross and can even lengthen the "green man" phase to allow more people to cross in time. The smart signs would therefore be handy when... >>

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... >>

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... >>
