Car reviews and road tests
The Volkswagen Golf GTE is one of our favourite cars, as it combines the opportunity for sporty and zero-emission driving, all in a compact, practical and refined package.
It may not look like it, but the all-electric Volkswagen e-up! feels like one of the fastest and most fun ways to get around town.
The new Mazda CX-5 builds on the strengths of the previous model in an effort to further capitalise on the demand from motorists for SUVs.
The Renault Twingo GT and smart forfour BRABUS are essentially the same car underneath, but they’re very different to drive and very differently priced; so which is best?
Some people have said that the new Land Rover Discovery can’t be as good as the previous model because its styling is now curved rather than square, so we decided to drive it up a mountain to find out.
The all-electric Renault ZOE is good to drive and the Z.E.40 model now comes with an official 250 mile range, making it a more practical and therefore a more attractive proposition to many motorists.
The Toyota C-HR has dramatic looks compared to most Toyotas, it’s also good to drive, and if you want maximum miles per gallon, then the Hybrid powertrain is the one to go for.
The new Peugeot 3008 looks better and drives better than its predecessor, but it’s the i-Cockpit, with its digital instrument panel sitting above a small steering wheel, that’s the car’s main party trick.
The new Citroen C3 has more visual character than its predecessor, it offers a comfortable ride, and its light weight has the potential to deliver good levels of efficiency if driven carefully.
The Kia Optima Plug-in Hybrid saloon offers the potential of 176mpg if driven primarily on electric power, along with low emissions and attractive company car tax rates.
