Mercedes Benz E 220 d review

The new E-Class is a vitally important car for Mercedes-Benz and arguably defines the company. With its elegant but striking lines and stunning interior, on the premium plus package (£3,895) car tested, there is the sense of well being of the S-Class in...

Kia Optima PHEV review

As ever with PHEVs, Kia's first venture into this sector of the market makes most sense for the company car driver who can recharge the car frequently, and ideally at work and at home. Under ideal conditions Kia reckons the Optima PHEV is capable of 33 miles...

Suzuki Baleno 1.0 Boosterjet review

Suzuki's new Baleno compact five-door hatchback will tick a lot of important boxes for family motorists. It's very good value, very well equipped and should be cheap to run on a daily basis. Excellent second hand values are predicted. The bonus is that a...

VW e-Golf: NGC extended test

You would be forgiven for thinking that we've put the wrong picture at the top of this review. Surely that's just a Golf? Well we've got it right, it's just that the e-Golf looks almost identical to its internal combustion powered stablemates. In a market...

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...

Peugeot 2008 1.2 Pure Tech review

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...
