Peugeot 508 Hybrid review

Peugeot’s 508 range has been designed and set-up to sit somewhere between conventional saloons and the executive market. It’s like VW’s Arteon, utilising coupe design details to create a sleek, stylish saloon. One crucial element to compete in this...

Jaguar E-Pace P300e first drive

Much of Jaguar’s range has been given a bit of a spruce up, and the E-Pace is no different. The compact premium SUV gets sharper styling and improved equipment to keep it fresh, and the changes go deeper than it might initially look. A new architecture...

Kia Sorento PHEV first drive

There’s been plenty changing at Kia, and electrification is at the heart of this shift for the Korean manufacturer. A new logo will arrive on the bonnet of a car - branding elsewhere has already changed - with the company’s first dedicated, pure-electric...

Volvo XC90 T8 Recharge Plug-in Hybrid review

Volvo’s XC90 PHEV has proven a popular choice since it launched a few years ago. Now Volvo’s given the large SUV a refresh, with the aim of keeping it towards the top of the tree. Plug-in power has been rolled out across the Volvo line-up, and we see...

Volkswagen Passat GTE Estate review

Volkswagen’s Passat GTE is the company’s answer to a frequently asked question. Are there any practical, family-sized plug-in cars on the market? The PHEV Passat sits in VW’s usual spot, between mass-market and premium models, and offers lots of practicality...
