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...

Fiat Tipo 1.6 Multijet review

Fiat has leaned heavily to the value for money and cabin and boot space side of the equation that car makers have to balance for this car which brings back the Tipo name, Italian for Type, after 20 years. For the sportier side of Fiat's soul see the new...

Audi A4 Avant 2.0 TDi Ultra review

Definitive premium class estate car gets even better with more space, sweeter engines and lots of high tech equipment, but look out for the price of the huge list of optional extras. As usual the cabin is great but the quiet way this car goes about its business...

Toyota RAV4 Hybrid review

Toyota's bigger RAV4 is now available as a hybrid for the first time which is a surprise as more than a fifth of Toyota's UK sales are already hybrid. Despite its space, practicality and guaranteed reliability, it's hard to recommend the Hybrid over diesel...

Jaguar XF 2.0d review

Jaguar's stylish XF is the British company's entrant in the executive saloon game, taking on the likes of BMW's 5 Series, the Audi A6, and Mercedes E Class. Those are some seriously talented rivals but the Jaguar has plenty about it on paper to compete against...

Hyundai Ioniq Electric review

Hyundai's new Ioniq is the first model to be offered in a choice of three electrified powertrains - hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and full electric. Each has a different rival in its sights, with the Ioniq Electric tested here aimed squarely at the Nissan Leaf....
