Land Rover Discovery Sport Review – Not so sporty

9 Jan , 2016  

Capitalising on the Range Rover Sport’s success Land Rover decided its trusty Discovery needed the same makeover. Enter stage left, the Discovery Sport. Unlike the Range Sport, the Disco Sport bears no resemblance to its predecessor – the outgoing Discovery. It is a completely new design from a fresh family tree, and it could be argued […]

Nissan Juke Nismo RS Review – Refined

7 Nov , 2015  

Nissan first launched the hot Juke Nismo in 2013, it was the first fully blown Nismo vehicle to come to market. We reviewed it and enjoyed it very much, but there was one gripe…it needed a limited slip diff. That original Juke Nismo was killed off toward the end of last year, a few months […]

2015 Mitsubishi ASX 4WD Review – Competent off roader

7 Sep , 2015  

Mitsubishi launched the ASX back in 2010, it was their first stab at the ever growing crossover market.  It had a minor facelift in 2012 to beef up the front looks, but 5 years on how well does it stack up against the more modern competition? We took a 2.2 diesel 4wd for a spin […]

2015 Lexus NX 300h Review – Futuristic luxury

29 Aug , 2015  

Every once in a while a manufacturer will push the design boundaries, a toe dip if you will into the unknown. It will either be lauded for its bold statement or left on showroom floors putting off buyers. Very few make such bold design choices, and they happen with invariable irregularity. Recently Lexus have come […]

2015 Volvo XC60 Review – Stable Swede

18 Jul , 2015  

Volvo’s XC60 has been around for a while now, 7 years in fact. It has had a facelift along the way, but with all new XC90 just hitting the streets how well does the current XC60 stack up amongst new competition. We took the 190 BHP D4 for a spin in the R-Design trim level. […]

2015 Honda HR-V Review – Qashqai killer?

8 Jul , 2015  

The market has been without the Honda HR-V for around ten years now, with the original model making it’s debut in 1999. It was a Land Rover Freelander esq SUV body style with a more casual road oriented demeanour that is evident in the swarm of crossovers that have permeated the market since. Honda could […]

2015 Mazda CX3 Review – Not just a bold looker

10 Jun , 2015  

The B SUV is a relatively young breed that owes much to the larger Freelander sized soft roaders, and the generic B and C segment hatchbacks that have permeated the market for some time. For it’s youth, the B SUV has been a veritable explosive success with the likes of the Nissan Juke, Vauxhall Mokka […]

2015 Suzuki Vitara Review

24 Feb , 2015  

Suzuki launched the last Vitara in 2005…a replacement has been long overdue.  With our Grand Vitara review being one of our most popular, we headed off to Portugal to check out the all-new 2015 Vitara. Powered by either 1.6 litre petrol, or a 1.6 litre diesel the Vitara will go on sale in April starting […]

Mercedes Benz GLA45 AMG Review – Lifted, not tamed

8 Nov , 2014  

Let’s just start this review by making one thing clear, the GLA45 AMG is many things, great to look at, fast, immense fun, but, no matter how much Mercedes insists, it is not an SUV. This is crossover territory, with only the slightest bit of crossing, 40mm to be precise, so seriously, no offroading please. […]

Citroen C4 Cactus Review – The Future

29 Jun , 2014  

When Citroen announced the C4 Cactus in September 2013 we thought it would forever stay a concept…or that it would be drastically toned down before its final release. Less than a year later and one is parked in front of me, looking 99% identical to its Frankfurt debut. We tested both the Petrol PureTech 110 […]

15 May , 2014  

In recent years the premium small SUV market has exploded, the Evoque started it all and since then Audi, VW, and BMW have all jumped on the bandwagon. Porsche have spied this lucrative segment and launched the Macan. We tested the whole range but will focus on the Turbo model. It packs a 3.6 litre […]
