Mazda MX-5 2.0 Sport Nav road test report and review

Mazda MX-5 2.0 Sport Nav road test report and review

THE Mazda MX-5 is the world’s favourite sports car – it is also mine! It has always been a fabulous little car with almost bullet-proof reliability, but this new model raises the bar again and is the best so far. Accused of being a girl’s car in some quarters, it now looks far more aggressive, or perhaps I’m just more in touch with my feminine side, but I really don’t care, I love it and thoroughly enjoyed my few days with this newcomer.

Audi S line 2.0 TDI Ultra 163PS road test report and review

IF YOU’RE looking for a radical looking new car, then the Audi A4 will probably not be for you – they really don’t change very much from one model to the next, they just evolve, subtlely. But as someone once said, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, and the Audi A4 definitely ain’t broke. Sit in the car, shut the door, open the glovebox and have a good fiddle with the switches and you’ll realise one thing – it oozes quality. Everything feels beautifully tactile and a sheer delight to interact with.

THE Audi Q3 has recently had its mid-life facelift and now features the latest, deeper company grille and revised signature lighting which are the most noticeable external differences from the popular original model.
The interior has also benefited from a freshen up and now has a tidier, cleaner look, with the high quality black plastics of our test car being punctuated by brushed aluminium trimmings around the air vents, door handles, and on the major control surfaces.
