Toyota Corolla Touring Sports 1.8 Hybrid review

Toyota has brought back the Corolla name to British models, and with it a new hatchback, saloon, or estate powered by either a petrol engine or a choice of two hybrids. Here we test the Corolla Touring Sports, Toyota's compact estate, to see how it does...

Toyota RAV4 2.5 Hybrid 2WD review

The Toyota RAV4 has come a long way from its origins 25 years ago as one of the earliest successful crossovers. It's grown up both in size and spirit, but this latest version looks to inject a bit more youthfulness into the family-sized SUV. Available with...

Lexus RX450h L review

The Lexus RX 450h L looks to take the well-established SUV, and add a third row of seats to make it a little more practical. There are a number of seven-seat large SUVs available, and now Lexus has its own entrant in the market, available as a hybrid only....

Lexus LC 500h review

Lexus might once have had lingering reputation as a 'dull' manufacturer; one that makes good cars but not particularly exciting ones. However, the current line-up certainly can't be tarred with the same brush; thanks in part to the LC. The stylish coupe...

Lexus RX 450h review

Lexus NX300h review

The Lexus NX has received a refresh, keeping the striking mid-sized SUV in the minds of buyers - or so the Japanese brand hopes. Styling tweaks, improved equipment, and a focus on hybrid power are the main changes to what was a characterful model before....

Toyota C-HR 1.8 Hybrid review

In a market that is increasingly crowded, Toyota's C-HR manages to stand out. The striking styling is the most immediate attribute that makes on-lookers turn their heads to take in the crossover. It's not all about the design though, since the C-HR is one...

Lexus IS 300h review

For a while now, the Lexus IS has been an alternative choice for compact executive saloon buyers. Since it has been around, the traditional German choices from BMW, Audi, and Mercedes have topped the pecking order, while Jaguar's XF has come along and gone...

Suzuki Ignis SHVS review

Suzuki is quite the specialist in doing things its own way. With a strength in producing compact, off-road-style cars, the Japanese brand tries to bring models into its field of expertise. Hence even crossovers are given the Suzuki treatment - creating the...
