Volvo V60 D3 R-Design Review & Road Test (2011)

Volvo V60 D3 R-Design

This week it’s the turn of Volvo’s newest estate / sport wagon  – the Volvo V60 D3 R-Design – to arrive for review & road test. Just another Volvo estate, or something more interesting? It takes a very long time for established views to change. I mean, who’d have thought that Take That could ever be cool or […]

Alfa Romeo Giulietta 1.4 TB MultiAir 170 Veloce (2011) Review & Road Test

Alfa Romeo Giulietta Review and Road Test

This week we have the Alfa Romeo Giulietta 1.4 TB MultiAir 170 Veloce in for review and road test. Is it just another fragile Alfa, or a real contender? You’d expect us to open up a review of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta with the line that’s always trotted out about Alfas – especially by the Top […]

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 […]
