Audi TT 420 Quattro Sport concept car (2014) review

Rated 4 out of 54

Georg Kacher, 31 July 2014 10:10

So this is the first drive of the new 2015 Audi TT.  Yes, it’s the Audi TT 420 Quattro Sport concept car – the very car in fact that wowed the Geneva motor show in March and almost overshadowed the debut of the production TT. But this isn’t some cobbled together one-off, it’s the real thing, fitted with a prototype 414bhp version ...

Vauxhall Corsa VXR Clubsport (2014) CAR review

Rated 3 out of 53

John Mahoney, 30 July 2014 09:38

Britain loves the Vauxhall Corsa and despite never being the sharpest supermini in the box, it’s somehow remained one of our best-selling cars for what feels like an eternity. Now eight years into its life an all-new from the ground-up replacement is due in a couple of months, but that hasn't stopped our insatiable appetite for the Corsa. Even though ...

Volkswagen Scirocco R (2014) review

Rated 2.5 out of 52.5

John Mahoney, 16 July 2014 11:16

Volkswagen has freshened up its Scirocco coupe for 2014 with the mildest of visual tweaks. We drive the range-topping Scirocco R that gets the biggest bump in power. Finally, an all-new Volkswagen Scirocco – is it any good? Woah, hold your horses. The all-new MQB-based Scirocco doesn’t arrive for another two years. That means the current car, that first went ...

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

Rated 3 out of 53

the CAR road test team, 14 July 2014 09:11

Month 3 running a VW Golf GTI: the tartan seats When did German manufacturers start using tartan fabric for their seats? Even more importantly, why? I’ve tried to find out, but I don’t have a definitive answer; certainly it dates back to the 1950s, when Mercedes-Benz used different coloured tartan trim for each of its drivers: Stirling Moss’s race seat ...

Subaru BRZ (2014) long-term test review

Rated 3 out of 53

the CAR road-test team, 11 July 2014 11:55

Month 10 running a Subaru BRZ: the racing spec No, I haven’t decided to race my Subaru BRZ. And anyway, this isn’t a Subaru. It’s a Scion FR-S, the marque and name under which the BRZ/GT86 is sold by Toyota in the US and Canada. But not all Scion versions run that wing: this is the car that Ken Gushi ...

Aston Martin DB9 (2014) long-term test review

Rated 2 out of 52

the CAR road test team, 08 July 2014 11:03

Month 10 a year in an Aston Martin DB9: the end of the love affair Who can remember what they did last summer? For most of us it’s a haze of half-recalled snippets, of faded holiday moments, of barbecue parties that might equally have been in early June or late August. But here at CAR we can remember last summer in ...

Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet (2014) review

Rated 3.5 out of 53.5

Greg Fountain, 04 July 2014 10:56

There’s a point in every model’s range where everything basically stops making sense. A bit like life, possibly. And for the 911 I think this is it. Who actually buys a Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet? Nobody wants to travel at 195mph with the roof down, or accelerate to 62mph in 3.5sec while being pelted with insect shrapnel. If you wish ...

Mercedes S63 AMG Coupe (2014) review

Rated 4 out of 54

the CAR road test team, 01 July 2014 10:04

Mercedes’ CL is no more; meet the new Mercedes S-class Coupe, tested here in S63 AMG trim. The likely price tag is expected to top £125,000, meaning the S-class Coupe is now nudging wholeheartedly into Bentley territory. Can the two-door S-class AMG justify pricing deep into six-figure territory? Read on for our S63 AMG Coupe review. Mercedes S-class Coupe: first ...

Citroen C1 Feel PureTech 82 (2014) review

Rated 4 out of 54

Damion Smy, 27 June 2014 11:50

The new Citroen C1 is twinned with the Peugeot 108 and the Toyota Aygo city cars, with all three built on the same production line in Spain. Yet to battle the likes of the VW Up and Fiat 500, the Citroen has been given a stronger identity this time around, according to the French maker. But which city car is the ...
