Mazda 2 1.5 SkyActiv-D review

The cost of diesel engines in small cars tends not to make financial sense despite no road fund licence and better economy than petrol, and that is the case here. Annoyingly the 1.5 litre diesel in the Mazda 2 is the best engine in the range and quieter...

Kia has big plans for an electrified future but you can get a glimpse of it already with the Soul EV. The compact crossover is striking and grabs attention as you drive, despite looking almost exactly the same as its conventionally-powered stablemates. The...

DS 5 Prestige 150 BlueHDI S&S review

The DS 5 used to be badged as a Citroen but now DS Automobiles is a brand in its own right. This means the DS 5 has been given a refresh both on the surface and under the skin. Aimed as an alternative executive machine, can the DS 5 compete against its rivals...

Kia Cee'd 1.0 T-GDI review

Kia has updated the Cee'd, giving it smarter new looks, more efficient engines and better thought out suspension which makes the car handle more enjoyably without delivering a bone jarring ride. The cabin has also been revamped too. Well equipped, spacious...

Fiat 500X 1.4 MultiAir II review

Fiat has a real star with the little 500, but many people need more space and versatility. This is exactly what the 500X delivers, and still with Italian style. There is plenty of standard equipment, a smart cabin and a big list of options and option packs...
