Dacia Duster Review – Budget Bargain?

16 Mar , 2013  

Dacia have entered the UK market with its sub £11k 4×4, the Duster. The model we tested was the Access trim level, fondly known as the “UN” spec, due to its standard white paint and black bumpers. Now at that price you can’t expect amazing exterior design, but I kind of like the way it […]

Peugeot 208 THP Review – Pocket Rocket

2 Mar , 2013  

Peugeot released the 208 toward the end of summer last year, but it took a while for the THP (Turbo High Pressure) engine to be unleashed. After a very long wait, we finally got our hands on one! At £17,095 the 208 Feline 156 THP we tested was rather pricey, it sits in league with […]

Renault Clio Review – New Va Va Voom?

23 Feb , 2013  

The brand new Renault Clio has had much hype surrounding it, mainly by Renault themselves. With such lines on the brochure as “The Anatomy of Desire” it has a lot to live up to. We drove the new Clio in its Dynamique MediaNav spec which is one below the range topper. At £16,725 it only […]

Suzuki Kizashi Review – The alternative choice

26 Jan , 2013  

With only 500 models of the Suzuki Kizashi being made available to the UK public, it will always be a niche, rare car. Kizashi is a toe dip for Suzuki, to see how well the model floats in such a tight market. The car we reviewed, came in the only spec available, all-wheel drive, 2.4 […]

Smart fortwo cabrio BRABUS Review – The fast smart?

16 Dec , 2012  

Last month I boldly strapped myself into a Smart fortwo cabrio BRABUS. With 102bhp and 147 NM of torque, you may not think that is particularly scary…..however, it is one of THE scariest cars I have ever driven! At an extortionate £17,930 you can own this exact baby Brabus, but be prepared to purchase a […]

Alfa Romeo Mito Twin Air Review – two cylinders, really?

9 Dec , 2012  

Yes two cylinders, that’s all the engine the little Alfa had. Technically, it’s half an engine. With only 875cc, the 85BHP turbo TwinAir engine costs from £14,150. This to me seems a little pricey considering you are only getting two cylinders. The top-level Distinctive trim adds things like, 17-inch sports alloys, red Brembo callipers, rear […]

Suzuki Swift Sport Review – Hot hatch perfection

20 Nov , 2012  

Ok it may not be a hot hatch in terms of BHP; the Swift Sport comes with 136hp so it’s more of a warm hatch. At £13,500, it’s a bargain for the money. One thing I love about the Swift Sport is the fact that there is only one trim level, no long list of […]

Toyota GT86 Review – The drivers dream?

10 Nov , 2012  

We recently had the pleasure of driving the Toyota GT86, co-developed with Subaru, its being billed as a back to basics pure drivers car. The model we drove cost £27,795 which included nearly £3k of extra options. These were: Touch and go Sat-Nav at £750, Metallic paint at £450, and Leather/Alcantara heated sports seats, at […]

Peugeot 508 Hybrid4 Review – goes all silent…

27 Oct , 2012  

As a follow up to carwitters 508 review, we recently had the chance to drive the 508 HYbrid4. It’s a very impressive car, with 200BHP from a 2.0 Diesel engine coupled with a 37BHP electric motor, this version of the 508 Saloon offers Four wheel drive capability. At £31,450 it is a tad steep but […]

Peugeot RCZ Review – sexier than a TT!

9 Oct , 2012  

Yes, it’s true; if you want a car that gets looks absolutely everywhere, you need an RCZ. The common Audi TT has no attention drawing abilities anymore, they are ten a penny! We had the pleasure of driving the 1.6, 156BHP RCZ in GT spec. At £23,560 it is £2,350 more expensive than the basic […]

Smart ForTwo Electric Drive Review – the EV future?

6 Oct , 2012  

In a word – yes! I luckily got to drive the upcoming Electric Smart ForTwo yesterday. It was the first time the car has been bought over to the UK in right hand drive spec. It was massive fun to drive! When you think of electric cars, you ultimately think slow…..and limited range. The limited […]

Peugeot 508 Review – French for style

1 Oct , 2012  

The Peugeot 508 has been around for about a year, but does it still hold its own; especially against the upcoming 2013 Mondeo. The model we had for a weekend was the 508 Allure, 2.0 HDI with 163BHP. At £24,380 (with a few extra options), it was toward the pricey end of the 508 range. […]
