Honda Civic 1.6 i-DTEC review and road test report: A 1.6-litre diesel engine which is better than the rash of 1.0-litre three-pots – DAVID HOOPER drives the new Honda Civic 1.6 i-DTEC CAR manufacturers make all manner of claims about the economy of their latest products, but hardly any can live up to those claims […]
THE introduction of the Romanian Dacia brand is having quite an effect on the UK car market, and people are buying them as fast as the dealers can get their hands on them.
This Dacia Logan MCV Ambiance 0.9 TCe 90 estate car, (MCV standing for Maximum Capacity Vehicle) doesn’t look as modern as some of the latest models’ designs from other manufacturers, but it certainly doesn’t look bad, and comes complete with roof rails, so it’s handy for fitting a roof rack to carry luggage, bike carriers, top boxes and the like.
WITH the new SEAT Leon Cupra you get two cars for the price of one. Ok, not literally, but what you do get is one car with two very different characters and you can switch between the two at the touch of a chequered flag button on the dash.
Comfortable to drive every day, or one of the best track day cars you can buy, the new Cupra is as good as it gets in the hot hatch world and is already a record breaker.
AUTO-TRAIL’S range of motorhomes have a smart new look this year thanks in part to Fiat’s new and thoroughly modern looking cab. Codenamed the X290, it features redesigned lights and grille and looks completely different. Gone are the bug-eyed headlights in favour of much narrower profile light units giving the entire range an updated, more modern base vehicle that’s a big improvement.
IN my opinion, the E-Type Jaguar is the most beautiful car ever made and I have dreamed of owning one for years, although I admit it’s sadly a dream I am now unlikely to ever realise.
The new F-Type has been heralded as that iconic car’s spiritual successor, but whether or not you believe that to be the case, having spent the last few days driving this stunning 380bhp machine, there is no doubt in my mind that this sleek automotive modern masterpiece is worthy of such lofty comparisons.
THE Volkswagen Tiguan, in its various guises, has been around since 2007, and despite its recent facelift, is beginning to show its age in my opinion, not having stood the test of time as well as the rest of the VW range.
Its chunky looks are in many ways timeless, but the front end and the car’s nose in particular, are the issue here.
The Tiguan is spacious inside and very comfortable to travel in. It’s also well kitted out for family duties, with aircraft-style fold-down trays on the back of the front seats, plenty of leg room and a decent sized boot.
At first glance, the latest VW Polo doesn’t look radically different. Motoring writer Keith Ward finds out if the Polo is still cool. NOT much looks different at first sight of the new VW Polo, which arrived in UK showrooms this July. Revised headlights and bigger lower air intake at the front, redesigned rear lights and […]
— Skoda has been making big strides in the UK market in recent years. Motoring writer Keith Ward finds out if the revamped Yeti is abominable or heartwarming. ANYONE ever spotted the abominable snowman? Plenty have seen the Yeti. Skoda have sold almost 30,000 compact SUV’s of that name in the UK and more than 250,000 […]
