Land Rover Freelander 2 eD4 HSE (2011) Review

Land Rover Freelander 2 eD4 HSE Review Exterior

We have the new 2WD Freelander 2 – the Freelander 2 eD4 HSE – in for review & road test this week. Is a 2WD Land Rover Freelander just plain wrong? Has the world lost all sense of perspective? Land Rover building a front wheel drive car? Surely, that has to be an oxymoron? But […]

Lexus CT 200h SE-I Review & Road Test (2011)

Lexus CT 200h Review

This week we have the entry-level Lexus CT 200h – the Lexus take on the Prius – in for review and road test. A Prius in posh clothes or a sporty hybrid? The surprise isn’t that Lexus has decided to build its own version of the Toyota Prius – the Lexus CT 200h –  it’s […]

Bentley Continental Flying Spur Speed Series 51 Review & Road Test (2011)

Bentley Continental Flying Spur Speed Review & Road Test

This week we play at plutocrat boy-racers as we have the Bentley Continental Flying Spur Speed Series 51 in for Review and Road Test. Does it make sense? We’re a picky bunch, us Brits. However brilliant anything is we have to find a way to denigrate it. It’s as if we can’t live with success; we […]

Jaguar XJ Review: Long-term Jaguar XJ departs

Jaguar XJ

After five months – and a great deal of driving pleasure – our long-term Jaguar XJ goes back to Jaguar having not missed a beat. Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun? It seems only five minutes since we wrote that our long-term Jaguar XJ would be here until ‘… the leaves are coming back […]

Land Rover Freelander 2 Review & Road Test: Freelander 2 SD4 HSE (2011)

Freelander 2 SD4 Review

This week we have the latest 2011 Freelander 2 – the Land Rover Freelander 2 SD4 HSE – in for review and road Test. Does the extra power help the Freelander? Whatever way you look at it, Land Rover’s current model line-up is a bit of a mess, at least as far as the lower […]

Volvo S40 Review & Road Test: Volvo S40 SE DRIVe Start/Stop (2011)

Volvo S40 SE DRIVe Start/Stop

We have the Volvo S40 SE DRIVe Start/Stop in for review and road test this week. Is Volvo’s frugal S40 a quality car? There was a time – when Adam was a lad and so was I – Volvo just made a certain kind of solid, respectable saloon car for solid, respectable middle class families to […]

BMW X3 xDrive20d SE (2011) Review & Road Test

BMW X3 Review & Road Test

This week we have the new BMW X3 xDrive20d SE in for review and road test. Can the new X3 redeem BMW’s reputation after the woeful original? If you’re going to pontificate on a subject – in this case, pen a BMW X3 Review – it’s probably best to declare any prejudices and preconceptions up-front. So […]

Lexus LS 600h L Review & Road Test (2011)

Lexus LS 600h Review

We spend a week with the Lexus LS 600h to review and road test. Is the first hybrid luxury car in a league of its own, or a bit of a let down? For a car with a made-up name and a short history, Lexus has made a real impact. Now perceived by few as being just the […]

MINI Countryman Review & Road Test: MINI Countryman Cooper D All4 (2011)

MINI Countryman Cooper D All4 Review

We take a week to review & Road Test the MINI Countryman Cooper D All4 – MINI’s take on a butch, crossover MINI. Does the Countryman work, or is it just cynical marketing? We’re not very good at making the most of what we create in Britain. We are pretty good at coming up with ideas and […]

Toyota Auris Hybrid Review and Road Test (2011)

Toyota Auris Hybrid Review

This week we have the Toyota Hybrid that’s not a Prius – the Toyota Auris Hybrid – in for Review and Road test. Has the Hybrid come of age? The Toyota Auris is not one of those cars that stick in the mind. It’s just there. It’s just another well-built Toyota. A slightly odd looking […]
