Car reviews and road tests
The Volvo V90 D4 offers a huge amount of space along with good looks, a classy interior, a comfortable driving experience and good economy.
The Jaguar F-PACE looks fantastic, it offers lots of space, has excellent handling, and in the case of our all-wheel drive 2-litre diesel test car, it has an official economy figure of 53.3mpg.
The SEAT Ateca is based on the same platform as the Volkswagen Tiguan, which we’ve recently tested. A comparison between the Ateca and the Tiguan makes an interesting read – find out why…
The Kia Niro has an efficient hybrid powertrain in a practical yet compact crossover-style body – all at a competitive price.
The Toyota RAV4 Hybrid offers a petrol-electric hybrid powertrain, which is cleaner than a diesel, combined with all-wheel drive in a practical SUV body.
The new Volkswagen Tiguan looks a lot more striking than the previous model, and with 90% of sales expected to be diesels, it shows that diesel engines aren’t quite dead yet.
The Volvo V60 D5 Twin Engine is an all-wheel drive Estate with official fuel economy of 155mpg, and it’s completely unique because it’s the only diesel-electric plug-in hybrid you can buy.
The BMW i3 and the BMW i8 made electric cars aspirational and desirable; now there’s a BMW i3 94Ah Range Extender with a ‘real-life driving range’ of 194 miles, making the i3 even more practical.
The Nissan LEAF was one of the original mainstream pure electric cars and it has sold well; now there’s a 30kWh version with a longer NEDC range of 155 miles.
If you’re looking for a large electric estate car, with no driving range limitation thanks to an additional petrol engine, then the Volkswagen Passat GTE Estate is the only choice.
