Car reviews and road tests
The Fiat 500 manages to be a green car while at the same time having bags of character. The design is based on the 1957 Fiat 500 , the car that is still held up as a design icon around the world.
The big green idea behind the Mazda 2 is that a special effort has been made to make it lighter than its predecessor.
The BMW 320d has to be the perfect balance between being a drivers machine, an efficient green car, and a company car.
In the same way as the BlueMotion is the greenest car in the Volkswagen range, the 1.5 litre diesel is the greenest option in Renaults Laguna line-up.
First there was the Volkswagen Polo BlueMotion, the greenest Polo in the model line-up. Now Volkswagen is rolling out the BlueMotion treatment to the rest of its car range including the Passat saloon and estate.
The Volkswagen Scirocco is a refined and practical sports coupe that is also great to drive and capable of 55.4 mpg.
There are currently only two conventionally-engined cars on sale that emit less than 100g/km of CO2, and the SEAT Ibiza Ecomotive is one of them (the other being the Ibizas close family member, the Volkswagen Polo BlueMotion, which shares the same engine).
A new car has just appeared on the scene, and its not only the most economical 4×4, its the most economical 4×4 by a huge margin.
So you want a family car, but you also want something that has an interesting environmental edge. The Ford Focus C-MAX Flexi-Fuel could be your answer.
So what exactly is a Skoda Roomster? The side profile looks like the front end of a car and the back end of a van have been welded together. And with the doors and windows being at different heights front and back, it doesnt even look as though it has been welded together particularly well.
