The 2016 Toyota Prius ushers in an outrageous new look and more mechanical improvements than you can shake a stick at. Think you’ve got the Prius firmly pigeon-holed? Maybe it’s time to think again.

2016 Lamborghini Huracan Spyder First Drive 3 years ago

Lamborghini Huracán Spyder first drive review

The Lamborghini Huracán Spyder LP610-4 is the al fresco version of the Huracán, sitting within a model range that also includes the LP610-4 and LP580-2 coupes. They all benefit from a glorious-sounding, naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10, but losing the roof lets you get that little bit closer to it.

2016 Lexus RC Coupe First Drive 3 years ago

2016 Lexus RC first drive review

Lexus reckons its riotous-looking RC has the desirability, quality and dynamic abilities to prise style-conscious hipsters out of their slinky German Coupes. With the all-conquering BMW 4 Series currently ruling the roost, you’ve got to admire that sort of bravado.

2016 Renault Megane GT First Drive 3 years ago

New 2016 Renault Megane GT first drive review
