Driven: Lotus Evora

From the very first moment that you plonk yourself down in the slim seat of a Lotus Elise you realise it is something quite special. Then again, depending on who you talk to, a Mazda RX-8 ‘40th Edition’ is quite special, likewise a whole page full of interesting cars and variants campaigned by devoted enthusiasts ...

Driven: Subaru Impreza Type-UK

In the days before Bruce Willis came along to it give a lasting, Hollywood style impression, the word ‘diehard’ was true to its original definition, meaning ‘to fanatically oppose progress or reform’. This term can often be applied to music fans, who accuse acts of becoming ‘sell-outs’ when the melodies they so love become mainstream enough ...

Driven: BMW 5 Series Touring

What is The Perfect Car? It’s an oft-discussed topic within motoring circles, but, as with most things in life, the answer depends entirely on who you ask. As such, 21-year-old Matt from Bolton and 68-year-old Gladys from Hastings would probably subscribe to vastly different beliefs on what represents motoring perfection. A Lotus Elise might annihilate ...

Driven: Jaguar XKR Speed and Black pack

There is a television advert for Jaguar’s new XF that is doing the rounds at the minute, and I can’t help but have a little smirk every time I see it. You probably know the one, the voiceover basically announces that the XF saloon won “Whats-it Car of the Year 2010”, then “Something-or-other Car of ...

Driven: Mercedes E63 AMG Estate

If there is one thing that shocks the human brain into life with startling intensity and bright-eyed focus, it is the unexpected. Have you ever, for example, lifted up a box of eggs to find that instead of being full and even as you thought, there are just two of the little protein parcels left; ...

Feeling the burn: The Kia Soul Burner

Ever since I first saw a Kia Soul trundling down the road, purporting to be just ‘a car,’ with a normal looking person at the wheel, I was enamoured. It’s a fantastic looking thing. God knows where the stylist got his ideas, but wherever it is, I want to visit. Problem with making such good ...

Mazda2 Sport: A big bag of Pick ‘n’ Mix

In the UK we are fortunate that we have a lot of small, economic and fun cars on sale. When teenagers pass their driving test there are all kinds of small cars to choose from, so many in fact it is like being a kid in a sweet shop. You can go for the retro ...

Peugeot 308cc: It’s for girls…

Recently I had a Peugeot 308cc for a week. I could go into detail about how it drives, how it’s not very dynamic or fun, but is very relaxing and easy. I could tell you that it’s not very fast from a standstill, but that it has sufficient torque when on the move. But you ...

Honda CR-Z: The schizophrenic sporty hybrid

The Honda CR-Z is a small car, but it could make quite a big impact on the way people buy cars. It is a car which Honda describes as a “sporty hybrid coupe” but it could be more than that. It could be a trend-setter and a catalyst for breaking down stereotypes. Being powered by ...

On the road: Kia Venga

After the scrappage scheme smaller car manufactures who relished in the delights of the government funding are coming forward with stronger products. Kia is starting to dabble in unfamiliar territory with their new found confidence and the Kia Venga is proof of this. The Venga – no relation to the 90s Eurodance pop group – ...
