There’s been much chat surrounding the VW Up GTi over the last year, finally getting our hands on one we could check if the hype was warranted or just a lot of gassing. Starting at £14,055 the GTi is around £4k more than the entry-level Up!. One of the PR’s at VW said the Up […]
Here on Carwitter, we LOVE the Suzuki Swift Sport. Having had them on loan numerous times over the years, we’ve jumped at the chance to get behind the wheel of this epic warm hatch. But as with everything these days, the time to turbo has come, gone is the high revving 1.6 VVT we know […]
Renault are releasing a whole 15, yes 15 RS 18 Clio’s into the wilds of the UK. Based on the RS 220 Trophy the models are inspired by the Renault Sport Racing Formula One Team. They feature a ‘Deep Black’ colour scheme with liquid yellow accents and a tasty Akropovic exhaust system. Allegedly […]

The specs are as follows: First in the hot hatch segment to receive 4CONTROL four-wheel steering All-new 280hp engine with 390Nm of torque Now with two transmissions – either 6-speed manual or 6-speed EDC automatic Inspired by […]
Now the title is a bold statement to make, I know that. I’ve never driven a Honda EP3, but I’ve sampled everything thereafter. The FN2 was lardy as fcuk. A ton of extra weight (nearly 16 stone?!) and barely a hint of more horses led it to be rather underwhelming. That could be what scared […]
