Seat Leon 1.4 TSI (2014) long-term test review

Rated 4 out of 54

the CAR road test team, 27 August 2014 08:15

Month 2 running a Seat Leon: pondering Spanish design It’s no surprise that Walter de Silva struggled to hatch a cogent corporate identity for Seat whist heading up its design department. For, whilst a troll through the Alfa Romeo archives afforded him the delicious Villa d’Este grille, and similar rummaging at Audi unearthed the gaping maws of Auto Union monsters, all ...

Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible (2014) review

Rated 4 out of 54

Greg Fountain, 25 August 2014 07:00

Not much more than a year after its launch Bentley’s performance flagship has had a minor tickle, presumably with the aim of keeping its kudos-hungry clientele assured that they’ve got ‘the latest version’. The 2014 Continental GTC Speed squeezes 10bhp extra from its already humungously powerful 12-cylinder twin-turbo engine (now making 626bhp), and 17lb ft of extra torque to take ...

Porsche 911 Targa 4S (2014) review

Rated 3.5 out of 53.5

Tim Pollard, 20 August 2014 06:34

Meet the most distinctive 911 of the current 991 family– the new 2014 Porsche 911 Targa. This is the open-top model for those who don’t want the full convertible experience – and it’s only available in the wide-hipped four-wheel drive bodyshell. The new Targa is a striking design, echoing the 1965 original with its fixed rollover bar. The alloy-look hoop ...

Lamborghini Miura meets the Countach: CAR’s supercar video

Lamborghini Miura meets the Countach: CAR’s supercar video
brightcove.createExperiences(); The September 2014 issue of CAR magazine has a supercar bent: we chart six decades of supercars, from the very first – arguably Lamborghini’s Miura – to the latest crop of LaFerrari, McLaren P1 and Porsche 918. We drive them all, plus we look at the genesis of the breed from the 1960s to the present day. We picked ...

VW Golf GTI (2014) long-term test review of Mk7 GTI

Rated 3.5 out of 53.5

the CAR road test team, 18 August 2014 09:11

Month 4 running a VW Golf GTI: the fab multi-media screen Readers who followed my reports on our long-term-test Ford Kuga last year will no doubt remember how much I hated its old-fashioned Sony music and navigation system, with a million tiny buttons and a screen the size of a Bourbon biscuit. One of the very best things about stepping ...

Caterham Seven 160 (2014): long-term test review

Rated 3.5 out of 53.5

the CAR road test team, 15 August 2014 14:58

Month 1 running a Caterham Seven 160: the long-term test review So then. I’ve gone from Dacia Duster to Caterham Seven 160. From a car that was all about logical and rational transport and nothing about driving, to a car that turns that equation on its head, and puts driving pleasure above every other consideration. We’ve always loved the Seven. ...

Audi RS6 Avant (2014) long-term test review

Rated 3.5 out of 53.5

the CAR road test team, 14 August 2014 10:29

Month 1 running an Audi RS6 Avant: long-term test review introduction Whenever I do a trackday, there’s always a bloke who’ll turn up in an Audi RS6 towing a Caterham. He is That Rich Wally At The Track. I convince myself that TRWATT is a rubbish driver but, really, I’d trade places in an instant. Now, for the next few ...

BMW X4 xDrive 35i (2014) review

Rated 3.5 out of 53.5

Steve Moody, 13 August 2014 13:01

BMW launched the new X4 in front of the Guggenheim museum of modern art in Bilbao, which was appropriate as they are both odd-shaped things brimming with baffling appeal. A quick tour of the museum revealed a film of flies landing on Yoko Ono’s pubes, which aren’t really up my artistic street and possibly yours either, and the same can ...

Ford Fiesta ST (2014) long-term test review

Rated 3.5 out of 53.5

the CAR road test team, 12 August 2014 15:10

Month 1 running a Ford Fiesta ST: the welcome So, in the latest phase of CAR’s time travelling experiment, in which they are attempting to turn a balding, 40-year-old man into somebody who knows what a twerk is, spends their entire life peering at their friends arses on a smartphone and gives some sort of shit what One Direction are ...

BMW M235i (2014) video review

BMW M235i (2014) video review
brightcove.createExperiences(); BMW might be obsessing over front-wheel drive small cars, but the 2-series Coupe is a rear-drive exception - and none more so than the latest BMW M235i. Watch CAR magazine's long-term test car in action in our video review above. It's the only 2-series with more than four cylinders - it's a straight six BMW, fancy that! - and ...
