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.... >>

Alien: Isolation review

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... >>

DriveClub review

By 7 October 2014

No self-respecting console can truly be said to have arrived until it gets that exclusive racing game. Everybody loves showing the world how they could have been Lewis Hamilton if they hadn't somehow fallen into that job pushing PPI claims at the call... >>

Jaguar XE: Exciting enough to challenge BMW? (hands-on)

By 7 October 2014

After making an exuberant entrance in London a couple of weeks back (it was dangled from helicopters, motored up the Thames on a speedboat) we finally get to lay our hands on Jag's long-awaited XE at the Paris Motor Show. It is a rival aimed squarely... >>

Assassin's Creed 5 Unity preview: Familiar format draws upon multi-player to evolve series

By 6 October 2014

With Ubisoft being a French company it's almost surprising it's taken many iterations of one of its best-known series, Assassin's Creed, to pull influence from its home country. Albeit, in Assassin's Creed 5: Unity, that's 18th Century Paris deep in the... >>

Mercedes-Benz AMG GT: No gulwing doors, can V8 powerhouse fill SLS's boots? (hands-on)

By 6 October 2014

The Mercedes-Benz AMG GT was originally shown at a private event in Stuttgart, but the first public chance to see the car is at the Paris Motor Show 2014. The GT is significant because it effectively replaces the gulwing-door SLS and becomes Mercedes-Benz's... >>

Spending time with the flagship Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 (hands-on)

By 3 October 2014

Amazon's autumn/winter 2014 tablet and eBook reader refresh is headed by the Fire HDX 8.9, an 8.9-inch powerhouse of a slate that sits at the top of the retailer's line-up. Unlike the 6 and 7-inch Fire HD tablets that are more aimed at the family unit... >>

Tesco Hudl 2 could be the best budget tablet ever (hands-on)

By 3 October 2014

Nobody, not even Tesco, expected last year's Hudl Android tablet to be such a runaway hit, but runaway hit it sure was. To date, Tesco has sold over 750,000 Hudls so it makes a lot of sense for the UK supermarket chain to follow up the award-winning... >>
