Hyundai Kona Electric first drive

Hyundai's Kona Electric has plenty going for it. Popular compact SUV styling; check. Plug-in powertrain; check. Long electric range; double check. And finally, affordable price tag . . . you guessed it - check. Available in two battery configurations, it...

Range Rover P400e review

There are few cars that look less 'green' than a Range Rover - unless you see one off-road and in the undergrowth. Land Rover has decided to change that impression though, by electrifying its flagship SUV. The P400e is a plug-in hybrid with a good electric...

Range Rover Sport P400e first drive

Land Rover isn't a brand immediately synonymous with green motoring. Granted, there was an all-electric Defender prototype a few years ago, but essentially buyers tend to think of the brand as either luxurious - with Range Rover in mind - or as providing...

BMW i3s REX review

Having really liked the BMW i3, I was looking forward to testing the i3s as soon as it had been booked in. Featuring everything good about BMW's compact EV, but with a little more focus on a sharper driving experience, the i3s looked - on paper at least...

Nissan Leaf review

The Nissan Leaf is a hugely important model for the electric car market. Having tested it on the car's UK launch in Scotland earlier this year, we've now had the chance to drive the Leaf for a week to get further into the minutiae of its capabilities. Having...

VW Polo 1.0 TSI 95 PS review

VW's Polo has long been one of the most sensible choices in the supermini market. However, with the previous generation model having a reputation that linked 'sensible' with 'dull' (perhaps a little unfairly), this latest version looks to recapture a bit...

Kia Stonic 1.0 T-GDi review

The humble hatchback might not be deceased, but it's certainly fallen prey to the car buying public's passion for crossovers. As such, taller versions of conventional superminis and hatches are easy to find in the UK, and any mass-market manufacturer wanting...

BMW 330e review

BMW's 3 Series is one of the best cars in its class, so there is plenty of promise for the iPerformance PHEV model. BMW's expertise with electric vehicles has seen it claim a fair amount of the market, and it has plug-in models across a large number of its...

VW T-Roc 1.5 TSI Evo DSG review

VW's T-Roc is a very important model for the German giant, giving it an entrant into the crossover market that shifts cars in huge numbers. As is the case with many of VW's products, the compact SUV straddles the gap between mainstream and premium models,...
