The new Ford Mondeo was first shown as a US-spec Fusion at the Detroit motor show in January 2012 - and is only just being launched in Europe now, nearly three years later. Does this make the new 2015 Mondeo out of date before it’s even arrived in UK showrooms? To find out, we asked the top brass of Ford ...

Ford has finally confirmed the full specification of the new 2015 European Mondeo.

Rated 4 out of 54

Tim Pollard, 23 September 2014 20:22

You're looking at the new Mercedes-AMG C63 for 2014. And it's a bit of a line in the sand for Merc, in more ways than one. There's a new name, for starters. Note the newly hyphenated AMG suffix. We'll carry on calling it the C63 AMG, thanks. But note the headline figures. Numbers like a 4.0-litre V8 developing 503bhp. Sprint ...

Rated 3 out of 53

Tim Pollard, 03 July 2014 23:01

The 2014 Volkswagen Passat has been unveiled - you're looking at the eighth generation of Passat. And, yes, it remains the epitome of sensible, stout Teutonic values. The new Passat is based on the Volkswagen group's clever, adaptable MQB box of tricks, the architecture which underpins the Golf Mk7, too. So it's cleaner, lighter and bristling with tech. This is ...
