The Mercedes S-Class AMG Sport Edition is another ‘final’ S Class model with extra equipment as the W221 comes to the end of its shelf life. The current Mercedes S-Class (W221) has been with us since 2006, despite which it’s still a fine car (and a great secondhand buy), but it’s about to be replaced by […]

It’s reported that China’s Geely – which bought Volvo from Ford – is about to take a majority stake in Fisker Automotive.

Car sales in Europe continue to decline with sales down 9.6% in January 2013 and the top-selling VW Golf down by 17.8%.

The new Nissan Note has turned in to a Ford Fiesta basher as Nissan turn the Note from a boring little MPV in to a convincing small hatch. We got a fair idea of what the new Nissan Note would offer when Nissan delivered the Invitation concept at the Geneva Motor Show in 2012. We […]

Nissan has revealed that sales of the electric LEAF have now topped 50,000 units since the LEAF went on sale in 2010. We’re not fans of the electric car as a replacement for the ICE car, but some electric cars can give a fair impression (at a a price) of a traditional family car, and […]

A new Alfa concept – the Alfa Romeo Gloria Concept – is heading for the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. But it’s not previewing a new Alfa. Some petrolheads (hello, Top Gear’s Clarkson, May and Hammond) love to say that you’re not a true petrolhead unless you’ve owned an Alfa Romeo. They’re wrong, of course, but the logic that […]
