2019 Suzuki Jimny Review 5 months ago

Suzuki Jimny SUV (2018 - ) review

The Suzuki Jimny is a small off-roader rather than a small SUV; subtle distinction, that. It’s not as comfortable or as civilised as a Renault Captur or a Kia Stonic, but nothing else of the Jimny’s size or price will get you further into the wilderness.

Kia Ceed Review 1 year ago

Kia Ceed hatchback (2018 - ) review

The Kia Ceed has grown up. Not only has it ditched the apostrophe from its name, it has evolved its design and enhanced its interior quality. It’s even closer to its main hatchback rivals, with more safety systems, a new diesel engine and the prospect of mild hybrid versions to follow. Oh, and it’s still got that seven-year warranty.
