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...

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...

VW Passat GTE Estate review

Volkswagen has expanded the GTE range to include the Passat, turning the refined model - in this case the estate - into a plug-in hybrid. Sharing the same powertrain as the more established Golf GTE, the Passat GTE shows VW is serious about making green...

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...
