Aston Martin DB9 (2014) long-term test review

Rated 2.5 out of 52.5

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 ...

VW Up 1.0 (2013) long-term test review

Rated 2 out of 52

the CAR road test team, 06 June 2014 13:00

Month 11 running a VW Up: the final report It’s a measure of how accomplished the Volkswagen Up is – and how satisfying it’s been to run one for ten months – that it’s much easier to quickly reel off the short list of things I wasn’t keen on than ramble endlessly about all its plus points. The holes in ...

Ford Focus ST (2013) long-term test review

Rated 2 out of 52

the CAR road test team, 27 November 2013 09:00

Month seven running a Ford Focus ST: how does the Focus ST handle a track day-thrashing? I’ve been to a couple of track days before, and I know how a neatly driven hot hatch can embarrass a clumsy supercar, so a recent track day at Rockingham was going to be a big test for the powerful Focus ST: I was ...

Audi RS4 Avant (2013) long-term test review

Rated 2.5 out of 52.5

the CAR road test team, 04 November 2013 09:00

Month 7 running an Audi RS4 Avant: goodbye to CAR's 444bhp RS4 Avant Andy Green knows how it feels to come to a halt, breathless, at the end of a hyper-fast drive in a dead straight line. And now, after seven months behind the wheel of the RS4, so do I. Whatever else it is, this brutally quick estate car is not ...

Fiat Panda 0.9 TwinAir (2013) long-term test review

Rated 2.5 out of 52.5

the CAR road test team, 23 October 2013 08:00

Month 6: goodbye to CAR's long-term Fiat Panda The gut-wrenching sound of rending metal brought on by an unsatisfactory skirmish with a heavily-armoured octogenarian aside, there have been three key characteristics to Fiat Panda 0.9 TwinAir 85hp Lounge tenureship, the memory of which will kinda linger… The first is the extraordinary discovery that, when the time comes for an update ...

Honda Civic 1.8 i-VTEC (2013) long-term test review

Rated 2.5 out of 52.5

the CAR road test team, 29 July 2013 07:00

Month 7 running a Honda Civic i-VTEC - goodbye to our Civic, and the final verdict So farewell, then, Honda Civic 1.8 VTEC ES. It’s been a slice. We must however, identify just the odd gripe nut in the ambrosia of what has largely been an amnesia-smooth experience… Firstly, I haven’t met anyone during my tenure who thinks this is ...

Volvo V40 D2 SE (2013) long-term test

Rated 2.5 out of 52.5

the CAR road test team, 15 July 2013 09:00

Month 7 running a Volvo V40: final verdict on Volvo's entry-level hatchback Seven of the ten best-selling cars of 2012 were hatchbacks – eight if you include the Nissan Qashqai, which is about as good off-road as a deflated Space Hopper, so let’s call that a hatchback too. Launching into this fiercely fought sector is a challenge for any manufacturer, but ...

Range Rover Evoque (2012) long-term test review

Rated 2.5 out of 52.5

the CAR road test team, 26 April 2013 09:30

Month 10 running a Range Rover Evaoue: thoughts on the Evoque's cabin What’s the inside story on the Evoque? Plump for the coupe, and you pay £1000 more than for the five-door and get two fewer doors. If you need frequent access to the rear, the glacial motorised slide of the front seats could drive you potty, and squeezing through ...

Mazda CX-5 2.2D Sport (2013) long-term test review

Rated 2.5 out of 52.5

the CAR road test team, 22 April 2013 09:00

Month 4 running a Mazda CX-5: our CX-5's build quality impresses Ask my wife’s 86-year-old grandfather, who suffers from failing eyesight, about what he misses most and he says it’s driving. Growing up in Cyprus he would rattle around in tractors and Austin Sevens when he was still in short trousers. After moving his family to England in the 1960s, he owned ...

Hyundai i40 Tourer 1.7 CRDi (2012) long-term test review

Rated 2.5 out of 52.5

the CAR road test team, 01 January 2013 01:00

Final report on the i40 - 31 December 2012 The greatest weakness of our long-term test Hyundai is revealed when it’s time to say goodbye: I’m not going to miss it. That seems cruel, almost like saying you’re not going to miss Barney the black Labrador, who gave so many year’s faithful service – just bury him at the bottom of ...
