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 […]

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. […]

Peugeot 208 Review – The regeneration?

4 Sep , 2012  

The new Peugeot 208 has a lot of competion from the small hatch market, ever more so from the “luxury small hatch” segment. So how does the 208 stack up… The first model I drove was a 1.2 Active, with 85BHP I thought it would feel lacking, but in such a small car it felt […]
