New 2017 Suzuki Swift Review

23 Mar , 2017  

Suzuki’s perky little hatch is finally being replaced. The previous generation has been on sale for 7 years and, it’s safe to say we love it…and always have. This new model differs massively in the looks department, but is it still the epic handling B road blaster we’ve come to expect? Heading to Monaco we […]

New 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback Review

30 Jan , 2017  

Can you believe it, the Civic is now in its tenth, yes tenth iteration? This all new 2017 Honda Civic hatchback is longer, wider and lower than the last generation it’s gone from a family hatch, to more a family saloon in its looks. Torsional rigidity is up by 41% over the old model and the […]

New Citroen C3 Review

17 Dec , 2016   Gallery

The Good Fresh, modern, quirky styling sets is apart. The Bad Airbumps aren’t standard, why?! The Ugly Nothing! Citroen are having a bit of a renaissance of late. They are going back to their roots of quirky and different, mainstream in the late 90’s and early 2000’s didn’t work. The C4 Cactus was the first […]

2016 Citroen C4 Cactus Ripcurl Review

27 Nov , 2016  

The Good Funky, unique styling, matched with Peugeot’s awesome Grip Control function. The Bad Nothing! The Ugly That infotainment system. Peugeot have this neat little system called ‘Grip Control’, it’s a fake four-wheel drive system that just runs on the driven front wheels. It’s pretty trick, working with the traction control and ABS to brake individual […]

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 […]

Toyota Yaris Hybrid Review – Worth the money?

2 Jul , 2016  

If you’re in the market for a frugal, economic hatchback then a hybrid would be the right thing to buy right? Well that’s what Toyota would have you believe, queue the Yaris Hybrid. We have always been intrigued to see if it can really live up to the stereotype most people have regarding hybrid tech, […]
