This year marks the 60th anniversary of the Citroën DS, a ground-breaking car in its time, recognised as one of the most influential cars of the 20th century.

2015 Honda Civic Type R Review – VTEC, but not as we know it

7 Jun , 2015  

Honda’s Civic Type R has a cult like following. Across many forums, car parks, and clubs throughout the land, arguments are born over the EP3’s legendary acceleration and handling. Much like the 205 GTi, the fabled EP3 Civic Type R is the one that Honda have been looking to bottle the essence of since its success […]

Jaguar XE Review – First UK Drive EXCLUSIVE

30 May , 2015  

It could be argued that Jaguar’s XF saved the brand. It brought in new, younger blood to what was strictly an older clientele. Jag now need to do this again. They need 30 something, company car owner, mile munchers to keep the big cat heading in the right direction. With eyes on the compact executive […]

2015 Range Rover Evoque 4WD Review– No soft roader

19 May , 2015  

Last time we drove an Evoque we purely tested it in an urban environment, this time we thought it would be a good idea to test its off road ability. We went for exactly the same engine as last time. The 2.2 litre SD4 with 187 BHP. But this time it is fitted with the […]

Front and rear dampers have been re-tuned along with the electric power steering; at the rear the suspension has been realigned. All these changes are to aid high-speed stability, body control and to generally […]

2015 Kia Optima Review – Mile Muncher

4 Apr , 2015  

We have always liked the look of the current gen Kia Optima. Bold, stylish and altogether more appealing than a bland Mondeo. The Optima comes with just one engine choice, a 1.7 litre CRDi Diesel with 134 BHP and 325 Nm of torque. 0-60 is a rather average 10.2 seconds. In Optima 2 spec our […]

Volvo V60 Polestar Review – Savage Swede

21 Mar , 2015  

For the uninitiated Polestar are to Volvo what AMG are to Mercedes. Bred from race heritage they cook up ridiculously fast versions of Volvo’s already rapid T6 models. We have been aching to get ourselves into one for the last year; finally as 2014 drew to a close we got one to ourselves for a […]
