Renault Zoe Z.E. 40 first drive

Renault's new Zoe Z.E. 40 promises the greatest range of any mainstream EV on the market today. With an official range of up to 250 miles depending on model, only Tesla's line-up can beat that range figure, but they cost far more than twice the amount of...

Toyota Prius Plug-In First Drive

The figures behind the new Prius Plug-In shows that Toyota is taking PHEVs seriously. After the first generation's rather poor electric range, this second iteration has very strong economy statistics, wrapped up in a far more tempting package. Next Green...

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV First Drive

It might sound familiar, but Mitsubishi has brought out a range of updates for its Outlander PHEV. It is just over 12 months since the last refresh remember, but the Japanese firm hasn't rested on its laurels, and now offers further enhancements to the UK's...

Citroen C3 BlueHDI review

Citroen urgently needed to refresh its C3 range and seems to have done an effective and attractive job without breaking the bank. It is worth noting sales of diesel superminis are not as popular as they used to be. Citroen seems less keen on price discounts...

Renault Scenic 1.5 dCi review

Stylish MPV or all-conquering 'crossover' car? That’s the choice Renault buyers will have to make, though the company has hedged its bets somewhat by giving the new Scenic 44mm more ground clearance and a taller appearance. I wonder how long it will take...

Toyota C-HR 1.2 Turbo review

If your family has outgrown the Nissan Juke and the Qashqai is too staid, then Toyota's flamboyant new C-HR is worth a look. The hybrid version does not drive as well as the Prius on which it is closely based but the 1.2 litre turbo petrol combines style...

Toyota C-HR Hybrid review

The C-HR is a very important model for Toyota, with the company's hybrid powertrain from its Prius installed into a crossover body. The resulting C-HR is supposed to appeal to a younger set of customers, tempting them into Toyota's hybrid model line-up,...

VW Touran 1.6 TDI review

Volkswagen's seven-seater Touran is a terrific all-rounder. It's a quality product that's roomy, practical and well-built. Reasonably heavy laden the car struggled a bit on uphill gradients. If you can afford it, the 2.0 litre would overcome that and with...

Tesla Model X video review

Tesla brings its follow-up to the Model S in the shape of the all-electric Model X SUV priced at £64,100 for the base Model X 60D. The Model X delivers all of the technology you'd expet from Tesla, and more with the market leading gull-wing doors for...

Peugeot 3008 GT 2.0 BlueHDi review

Never mind let people eat cake; if people want SUVs, then French car maker Peugeot will give them SUVs. Gone is the dumpy styling of the old 3008, which was more of a 'people carrier', and in its place a sharply suited family car with 4x4 looks, though it...
