Why the FK2 is THE best Honda Civic Type R EVER

5 Aug , 2017  

Now the title is a bold statement to make, I know that. I’ve never driven a Honda EP3, but I’ve sampled everything thereafter. The FN2 was lardy as fcuk. A ton of extra weight (nearly 16 stone?!) and barely a hint of more horses led it to be rather underwhelming. That could be what scared […]

2017 DS 3 Performance Black Edition Review

7 Jul , 2017  

When thinking of the DS 3, performance doesn’t really spring to mind. Matt black with gold accents certainly isn’t the order of the day. Special editions, collaborations with makeup brands and a car squarely aimed at the female side of the population is more suiting to its nature. The last performance model appeared when the […]

Honda Civic Type R FK8 Review

16 Jun , 2017  

We know what you’re thinking…it’s only been a week since the last Type R was launched?! Well, it has in fact been a whole two years. And, in an effort to alienate buyers of the last gen, Honda have outed its latest blistering hatch barely six months after the all new model was unveiled. Packing […]

Audi S1 Review

14 Oct , 2016  

I’d like to meet the man responsible for putting a 2.0 litre turbo charged engine, coupled with Quattro all-wheel drive into a car the size of my shoe. I hope it’s one man in Ingolstadt that nobody really takes seriously, but occasionally he is let out from his mad invention room and someone takes a […]

Peugeot 308 GTi Review

1 Oct , 2016  

Peugeot are back with a family sized hot hatch. The last time this happened it was 1997 and the 306 GTi-6 would hit 60 from a standstill in 8.5 seconds. Oh how times have changed. This latest performance 30X model has had the 270 BHP RCZ R engine shoehorned into it. From just a 1.6 […]

2016 Kia Pro Ceed GT Review – Still a winner

5 Aug , 2016  

Kia’s first stab at the hot hatch market was a welcome addition to the segment, they pretty much nailed all of the key points. This year they have given it a mild tweaking just to keep it fresh, we took a Yellow Flame model for a spin to see if it’s still a winner. Kia […]

Why a hot hatch is the perfect all-round car

9 Jun , 2016  

The hot hatch IS the perfect all round car. Let me explain why.   Size Hatchbacks are unanimously loved, small, maneuverable, with space…near enough…for four people. You can opt for either a small hatchback – B Segment, or a larger, small hatchback – C segment. B segments are made up of your Corsa, Fiesta, Polo […]

29 Mar , 2016  

Today marks 25 years since Renault released its small hatchback – the Clio. It was March 29th 1991 that the Clio was officially launched in the UK, over time its proportions have grown to obese levels. So big in fact that a smaller model – the Twingo – had to take its place. Over the […]

2016 SEAT Ibiza Cupra gets upgraded & priced

14 Mar , 2016  

So the SEAT Ibiza has a “new look” to it. Getting a little long in the tooth the design that first surfaced in 2007 is still going, albeit a bit tweaked. This latest incarnation of the Cupra has received some rather noteworthy upgrades. Firstly it has a 1.8 TSi engine. It only has a modest […]
