2018 Nissan Leaf Review 1 day ago

Nissan Leaf hatchback (2018 - ) review

The Leaf is a five-door, fully electric hatchback, around the size of the Ford Focus or Volkswagen Golf. This is the second generation of the best-selling electric car in the UK.
2016 Volkswagen Up Review 1 day ago

Volkswagen Up hatchback (2016 - ) review

The Volkswagen Up is everything that city car buyers love. It’s stylish, high in quality, fun yet comfortable to drive and even reasonably practical, but it’s not the cheapest city car around.
2018 Volkswagen Up GTI Review 2 days ago

Volkswagen Up GTI hatchback (2018 - ) review

Being small, light and reasonably powerful, the Volkswagen Up GTI aims to recapture the spirit of the original 1970s Golf GTI. But, can a tarted-up city car really encapsulate the true essence of a hot hatch icon? You bet it can…
McLaren 540C Review 2 weeks ago

McLaren 540C coupe (2015 - ) review

The 540C is McLaren’s entry-level sports car, albeit one that still costs north of £100,000. It’s got lots of power and lots of technology and offers a stout challenge to cars like the Audi R8.

2018 Audi RS 4 Avant Review 1 month ago

Audi RS4 Avant estate (2017 - ) review

Audi bolts a very powerful engine into its A4 estate to create a car that mixes high performance with family transport, and a rival to the Mercedes-AMG C63 Estate.
2017 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Review 1 month ago

Alfa Romeo Stelvio SUV (2017 - ) review

You can always rely on Alfa Romeo to do things in its own inimitable fashion, and the Stelvio is living proof of that. It may look like an SUV, but it’s far more of a focused driver’s car than a comfortable, family runabout. Alfa would love you to think of it as a cheaper alternative to the Porsche Macan.
2017 Ford Ecosport Review 1 month ago

Ford EcoSport hatchback (2017 - ) review

Ford reckons the latest upgrades to the Ecosport are enough to make it feel like an all-new car and a credible rival to the Seat Arona, Renault Captur and Nissan Juke.
2018 Alpine A110 Review 1 month ago

Alpine A110 coupe (2018 - ) review

The Alpine A110 is a modern-day reimagination of an iconic sports car from the 1960s, but it’s properly cutting-edge to drive. Aluminium construction makes it super-light, and that helps make it a dynamic match for its closest rival, the Porsche Cayman.
2017 Nissan X-Trail Review 1 month ago

Nissan X-Trail SUV (2017 - ) review

The X-Trail is a spacious and comfortable five-seater, with the option of seven-seats, rivalling the likes of the Mazda CX-5, Skoda Kodiaq and Kia Sorento.

Volkswagen Golf SV hatchback (2018 - ) review

Part-family hatchback and part-MPV, the VW Golf SV is like a regular Golf, but with a little more practicality. It competes with cars like the Citroen C4 Picasso the Renault Scenic, and most other midsize SUVs.
2018 Volvo XC402018 Volvo XC40 Review 1 month ago

Volvo XC40 SUV (2017 - ) review

The XC40 is Volvo’s smallest SUV, a high-riding but relatively compact family car that competes with premium rivals like the BMW X1, Audi Q3 and Range Rover Evoque.
2018 Jaguar E-Pace Review 1 month ago

Jaguar E-Pace SUV (2017 - ) review

The Jaguar E-Pace is a small premium SUV that competes with cars like the Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Mercedes GLA. It promises style and driving fun, but delivers with mixed levels of success.
2015 Ford Edge 2.0 TDCi 210 4x4 Review 1 month ago

Ford Edge SUV (2015 - ) review

Ford of Europe is in desperate need of a full-size SUV to re-engage with customers who are deserting traditional saloon and estate cars in their droves. Is Uncle Sam’s Edge the answer to those European prayers?
2017 Subaru Impreza Review 1 month ago

Subaru Impreza Hatchback (2017 - ) review

The Impreza offers four-wheel drive and an automatic gearbox, but is that reason enough to choose it over a Volvo V40, a Skoda Octavia or any number of small SUVs?
2016 Porsche Panamera Review 2 months ago

Porsche Panamera hatchback (2016 - ) review

The Panamera is a car that brings Porsche’s strong sportscar heritage into the luxury saloon market. That makes it an alternative to the likes of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and the BMW 7 Series, but also to sportier offerings like the Aston Martin Rapide S, Maserati Quattroporte and Mercedes CLS.
2015 Rolls-Royce Dawn Review 2 months ago

Rolls-Royce Dawn convertible (2015 - ) review

There are plenty of luxury convertibles on offer these days, but none quite like the Rolls Royce Dawn. Hand-built from the finest materials, and with the on-road character of a luxury limousine, the Dawn is a car with virtually no direct rivals.
2017 BMW X3 Review 2 months ago

BMW X3 SUV (2017 - ) review

There was a time when the BMW X3 was your only choice of premium-badged mid-size SUV, but those days are long gone. You must now choose between the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, Audi Q5, Jaguar F-Pace, Mercedes GLC, Porsche Macan and Volvo XC60, and more and more rivals are emerging all the time. Question is, is the Beemer still the pick?
2018 Porsche Cayenne Review 2 months ago

Porsche Cayenne SUV (2018 - ) review

On paper, cars like the Range Rover Sport, BMW X5 and Mercedes GLE look like credible rivals to the Porsche Cayenne, but are they really in the same league?
