Car reviews and road tests
Any motorist out there who is not convinced by the potential of electric cars should be made to drive the Tesla.
The Volvo XC70 DRIVe may look like an off-roader, but in the quest to reduce emissions this model is front-wheel drive only; so does this idea work?
The Lexus 400h was the first premium SUV to be offered as a hybrid; its successor, the RX450h, is now out and it still has no rivals, but does it represent real progress?
The Volvo C30 is one of the companys models that now has dramatically reduced CO2 levels of 104 g/km, so what is a combination of safety and low CO2 like to drive?
The Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer looks as good as the hatchback and saloon, and the entire 2009 European Car of the Year award-winning package is a huge leap forward over the Vectra. The 2.0 CDTi emits less than 160g/km but only just. So surely its already looking like this is a car to be recommended? Well, we have some news for you, so youd better read on…
The new Ford Ka has a lot to live up to. The old model was great to drive, but the new one is based on a Fiat 500 which in turn is based on a Fiat Panda – so has Ford been able to work its magic to make the new Ka drive like a modern day Ford?
The Ford Fiesta ECOnetic is officially the lowest emission five seat family car available in the UK, with just 98g/km of CO2. So does that mean its dreadful to drive?
Citroen has made the name Picasso a byword for practical and economical family transport in the 10 years since the first model appeared. Now theres a third Picasso range and it could just be their most successful yet. The C3 is the smallest, cheapest and greenest Picasso.
The iQ is an exercise by Toyota to see how much of a grown-up car they can squeeze into the smallest possible size. And were pleased to report theyve achieved their goal.
The MINI Clubman Cooper D surely has it all great looks, fun to drive, excellent fuel economy, good performance, very low depreciation – and a valuable amount of added boot space over a regular MINI Hatch.
