Car reviews and road tests
The Renault Scenic dCi 110 Hybrid Assist features a small electric motor and an additional 48V battery with the aim of capturing and storing energy when decelerating, in order to deliver improved economy, lower emissions, and better performance; so does it work?
The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross aims to take a slice of the growing sales in the mid-size SUV segment, and the all-wheel drive model promises more off-road capability than many rivals.
We’ve already driven the Tesla Model X, but what’s it like to live with the 100D model for a week, when its range is tested in the real-world – as well as its off-road ability?
The Volvo V90 T8 Twin Engine is a large Volvo estate with a plug-in petrol-electric hybrid powertrain; if you can drive mainly on its 30 or so miles of electric power for most journeys, then this could provide a spacious, economical and extremely refined form of transport.
The BMW 530e M Sport iPerformance Saloon combines official figures of 148.7 mpg, 44 g/km CO2 emissions, 9% benefit in kind and 0-62mph in 6.2 seconds thanks to its petrol-electric plug-in hybrid powertrain.
The Kia Stonic is based on the Kia Rio, but it’s designed to be a more interesting SUV alternative – so should you choose this over the Rio?
The new Ford Fiesta has lost some of its quirky design features and some of its sharp dynamics in the interests of being a more appealing car to a broader customer base – so should it still be on your supermini shortlist?
We rated the previous SEAT Ibiza that we tested very highly, as it encapsulated what we believe SEAT should stand for: fun Spanish character in a good value package. Unfortunately there was little evidence of any fun Spanish character in the most recent Ibiza that we’ve tested.
The Mazda CX-3 is what happens when you combine a Mazda MX-5 and a compact SUV – so it’s the sporty choice, and we think that it’s also one of the best looking cars you can buy.
The Peugeot 5008 can seat seven, it has a stylish exterior, a modern and high-tech interior, and there are a range of petrol and diesel engines to suit different driving patterns.
