It should have been a runaway success. And it did sell 350,000+ in it’s life. But it never worked as well as Jaguar would like and, with the emphasis on the new Jaguar XJ, the very successful Jaguar XF and the Jaguar XK, Jaguar has taken the decision to end production of the X-Type at […]

The Fiat Qubo is an odd looking creation. Based on the Fiorino panel-van its a mini MPV in the style of the Renault Kango. But they’re not a huge seller in the UK, even though they do sell quite well in Europe (where there is more choice of these mini-mpv panel-van creations). But it’s relatively […]
You’ve probably read all there is to read on here on the new Jaguar XJ. We have to agree that it’s a brilliant car – although the final proof will be how it drives, which won’t be getting a chance to do until later in the year – and we are blown away by the […]
It’s been Hyundai that has taken the glory lately at the budget end of cars. But Kia are playing a good game, and the cee’d is very much up there as a budget option to a mainstream European model like the Golf or Focus. True, it’s very derivative and not terribly exciting, but if your […]
There were recently spy shots floating around of what the peddlers claimed to be the new BMW M7. But we didn’t run them because we weren’t convinced that was what they were. As things turned out, they were in fact pictures of the M-Sports Pack for the BMW 7 Series – a raft of pretty […]
It was only last month that we had spy shots of the Peugeot 308 RCZ, and we speculated then that it was starting to look as if the RCZ would finally see the light of day, two years after it was first shown as a concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2007. Peugeot has […]
It’s starting to look as if we need to retract the promise that the news on the new Jaguar XJ was pretty much done and dusted until we get our hands on one for a drive. Yesterday we reported that the new Jaguar XJ will have its public debut at Salon Privé, but now comes […]
All the news we’ve reported on lately with regard to Fiat has been on the Fiat 500C Convertible which launched in the UK recently. Oh, and of course the Fiat 500 Charity bashes, and the news that Fiat is taking the 500 to the US etc., etc. But we haven’t done anything on the hot […]
I know, we said that after the deluge of detail on the new Jaguar XJ over the last few weeks – and particularly at the end of last week – that there wouldn’t be as much about the XJ for a while. After all, we’ve said pretty much all there is to say and until […]
There are endless ‘Records’ set around the Nurburgring. Every class and category of car aims to take a record in its own category. Most of the noise on Nurburgring records of late has been on the Nissan GT-R Nurburgring record – which Porsche are unimpressed with – but now Porsche appears to have gone out […]
