2017 Skoda Octavia first drive review

Skoda's best-selling car gets a facelift and some new technology. It remains a brilliant all-rounder with plenty of space and equipment for the money.
2017 Toyota Prius Plug-in First Drive 1 month ago

2017 Toyota Prius Plug-in first drive review

The Plug-in is far more than a Prius with a big battery, but does it offer sufficient real-world benefits over the cheaper, standard car? Or would you simply be better off with a BMW 330e?
2017 Volkswagen Golf First Drive 1 month ago

2017 Volkswagen Golf first drive review

The Volkswagen Golf is Europe’s best-selling family hatchback and this update is aimed at maintaining that situation and keeping rivals as diverse as the Vauxhall Astra and BMW 1 Series in their place

2017 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS first drive review

The GTS sits above the Carrera and Carrera S models in terms of power, but without going as far as the hardcore GT models, or the bonkers-fast Turbos. It does everything the Carrera S can do, only a little better.
2017 Kia Rio First Drive 1 month ago

2017 Kia Rio first drive review

The fourth generation of Kia’s supermini focuses on good value, rather than low prices; but with decent standard equipment and a good warranty, it’ll surely tempt buyers away from the likes of the Ford Fiesta, Vauxhall Corsa and Renault Clio.
2017 Mini Countryman First Drive 2 months ago

2017 Mini Countryman Cooper S first drive review

The compact SUV class has more contenders than ever before, and the standard of those contenders has never been higher. That means the Countryman’s job has never been tougher, so does it have both the style and substance to compete?
2017 Lexus IS First Drive 2 months ago

Lexus’ compact executive saloon starts 2017 with a series of revisions aimed at tempting buyers away from the likes of the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4.
2017 Hyundai i30 First Drive 2 months ago

2017 Hyundai i30 first drive review

The latest i30 is designed to take on the likes of the Volkswagen Golf, Vauxhall Astra and Skoda Octavia. How does it measure up next to these family hatchback masters?
2017 Nissan Micra First Drive 2 months ago

2017 Nissan Micra first drive review

The new Micra is considerably better than the previous model. With a high-quality cabin, plenty of equipment and a decent drive, it's a good rival for the Ford Fiesta and VW Polo.
2017 Renault Zoe ZE40 R90 First Drive 3 months ago

2017 Renault Zoe first drive review

The Renault Zoe was already one of the better electric cars on sale, and the vastly increased range only makes it more appealing.
2017 Dacia Sandero First Drive 3 months ago

2017 Dacia Sandero first drive review

The Sandero gets a mild mid-life refresh, but sticks doggedly to its tried and tested recipe of family hatchback motoring for sub-city car money.

2017 Land Rover Discovery Prototype first drive review

The Land Rover Discovery’s looks may have been softened off, but fear not, the latest Disco is just as rugged as ever. However, we’ll need to try a production-ready version on a proper road before we can say how good it’ll be as an everyday companion.
Bentley Bentayga First Drive 3 months ago

2017 Bentley Bentayga Diesel first drive review

This version of the Bentley Bentayga is the first diesel-engined car to be sold in the company’s 97-year history. A black badge, black grille and re-profiled exhausts are all that visually distinguishes it from its petrol-powered counterpart.
2017 Mercedes E-Class All-Terrain First Drive 3 months ago

2017 Mercedes E-Class All-Terrain first drive review

The Mercedes E-Class All-Terrain is a very good all-rounder. It looks smart, has a beautifully appointed interior and is exceptionally practical. It’s also very good to drive, with a cosseting ride, capable handling and decent refinement.
2016 Audi S5 quattro First Drive 3 months ago

2017 Audi S5 quattro first drive review

The Audi S5 is a medium-hot performance version of Audi’s two-door coupe. It combines searing pace with the all-weather stability of four-wheel drive.
2016 Suzuki Ignis First Drive 3 months ago

2016 Suzuki Ignis first drive review

The Ignis name returns to UK after a decade in the wilderness. While the old car was a bland, boxy supermini, the latest Ignis has been reinvented as a riotous looking compact urban crossover.
2016 Subaru Forester First Drive 3 months ago

2016 Subaru Forester first drive review

The Forester has always been a favourite with the Barbour jacket set, but Subaru would prefer it to appeal to a much wider audience. The latest improvements are aimed at making it a more convincing rival to the likes of the Seat Ateca and Honda CR-V.
