BMW X5 xDrive 40e review

The BMW X5 eDrive 40e is a lovely, relaxing car to drive. Cynics will dismiss it as another company car tax dodger, though ironically it misses escaping the London congestion charge by a fine margin. To be as green as possible you need to charge it as much...

Suzuki Celerio 1.0 Dualjet review

Fitted with Suzuki's Dualjet technology Celerio moves to the top of its city car class for fuel efficiency though some rivals have longer guarantees in terms of both time and mileage. It's noisy on a motorway but good fun to drive around town or on twisty...

Volvo XC90 T8 TwinEngine review

The new plug-in hybrid (PHEV) version of Volvo's XC90 looks set to be an important model for the Swedish company. It is the first of a raft of new models on their way to make the most of electrifying Volvo's Drive-E engine range, while the XC90 T8 TwinEngine's...

Mazda CX-3 2.0 Skyactiv-G review

Mazda's CX-3 crossover is pricey compared to cars like the Renault Captur or the SsangYong Tivoli but it has stylish looks and feels a quality product. It is sportier to drive than rivals such as the Nissan Juke, though some people might find the ride too...

Toyota Auris Hybrid 1.8 VVT-i review

Sales of Toyota and Lexus hybrids have passed more than 200,000 in the UK over the last 15 years, but while the Auris delivers a relaxing drive it doesn't move the hybrid game on and at times the lack of acceleration is frustrating in today's busy traffic...

BMW 320d ED Sport Auto review

For the keener saloon car driver who wants to reduce his or her carbon footprint the BMW 3-Series is the place to go. Over six generations the 3-Series has defined the compact executive class. New engines, retuned suspension and new manual and auto transmissions...

Hyundai i10 1.2 SE review

Hyundai's i10 is a class act backed by a confidence boosting unlimited mileage five-year warranty. It's the first small Hyundai to be designed, engineered and built in Europe and it shows. Longer, lower and wider than before it feels pleasingly solid and...

Toyota Prius Plug-In: NGC Electric Drive

Strangely, when you consider that Toyota's Prius is king of the hybrids in many people's minds, the Prius Plug-In is often overlooked by those considering buying a plug-in hybrid vehicle. With the Prius well established after around 20 years of development...
