Dacia Logan MCV 1.5 dCi review

At just £9,595 for a new diesel estate car (£6,995 for a petrol fueled one) is there a better value workhorse on the market than Dacia's Logan MCV? We don't think so. Reliability reports are good and you can extend the warranty to five or seven years for...

Powered by some of the least polluting engines in the world, Peugeot's 2008 compact SUV starts at a bargain £13,615, though the best-selling 100hp 1.6 diesel costs £17,215. A mid-life facelift has given it real presence and with easy folding rear seats...

Vauxhall Insignia 1.6 CDTi Whisper Diesel review

Keenly priced, cheap to run and very comfortable with low fuel consumption and exhaust emissions, the Vauxhall Insignia with its new 1.6 CDTi diesel feels an honest product that does just what you expect. It is a sensible buy that handles the twisty stuff...

Toyota Mirai review

Toyota's hydrogen fuel cell Mirai will be the future of motoring for an increasing number of people over the next five to ten years, but a single power system is not going to take over the world. This year Toyota aims to sell or lease about 15 cars in the...

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...
