Toyota’s baby 4×4 – The Toyota Urban Cruiser – hits UK showrooms today after being unveiled at the Paris Motor Show last year. Looking like a Toyota Land Cruiser that’s been through a boil wash, the Urban Cruiser is designed to take sales from buyers of super minis looking for something a bit different. It’s […]

The original Mini will be forever associated with the Swinging Sixties. Launched in 1959, just as the new decade that changed the world was about to be born, the Mini was probably the first ‘Classless’ car, driven by everyone from Bin Men to Royalty. Apart from the Mini nothing is more redolent of the ’60s […]
Peugeot are pretty much responsible for the whole Coupe-Cabriolet (CC) market. They practically invented the concept, and have gone on to sell pushing on 700,000 CCs in total across the 307 and 207 ranges. But now it’s time for a replacement, and the Peugeot 308 CC launches in the UK on 1st June. As an […]
Ford are pulling out all the stops to get the States to fall in love with the Ford Fiesta. Already they have 100 Euro spec cars out with the winners of the Fiesta Movement Competition, who are getting six months free use of the new Fiesta, including fuel costs. But this isn’t enough feedback for […]
When times are tough, you look for business wherever you can. And for GM, times have never been so tough. Practically on the verge of extinction as a whole, certainly in the form we know, but with strong product in Europe with Vauxhall and Opel. And Vauxhall have just announced their latest sales pitch – […]
We’re starting to get real-world feedback now the first customer Nissan GT-Rs are in the wild in the UK. And it all seems extremely positive. Just about every owner we have spoken to is astonished at the performance. Everyone bought on the basis of the press coverage on the GT-R and no one really had […]
The VW BlueSport concept debuted at the Detroit Motor Show in January, and offered the prospect of an economical, fun roadster from the VW group. But at the time VW made it clear that the car would have to work across three of its brands to be viable. VW are obviously up for the project, […]
Skoda revealed the Skoda Yeti at the Geneva Motor Show in March, and has announced this week that the first car has rolled off the production line in Kvasiny in the Czech Republic. The Skoda Yeti is a promising, rufty-tufty ‘SmallRoader’, based on parent company VW’s Tiguan. But the Skoda holds the promise of more […]
Peugeot producing a 4×4 never seemed quite right to me. And to be honest it’s not exactly the pick of the crop. In fact, it’s not exactly pick of the crop amongst its cousins (the Citroen C-Crossover and the Mitsubishi Outlander – all the same under the skin). There are some plus points, however. It […]
Vermot AG are responsible for the Veritas RS III, a modern day recreation of a 1940s German racer. And it does look pretty stunning. It weighs in at less than 2400lbs but features a either V10 BMW (as in the M5) or a V8 (as in the M3), offering either 600bhp or 480bhp. Expect fireworks! […]
