  • VW Golf GTi Edition 30 (2006) review

    Price:  £22,795

    22 December 2006 by Chris Chilton

    Has it really been 30 years since the original hot Golf first arrived? Actually the first 1.6-litre four-speed GTi went on sale in Germany in 1976 so the German market got its hands on this...

  • Mercedes E500 facelift (2006) review

    Price:  £47,717

    21 December 2006 by Ben Whitworth

    You’ve used the wrong picture, that’s the old E-class, sort yourselves out! Well, Mercedes calls it the ‘new’ E-class but it’s really a heavily revised version of the model launched four years ago.

  • Subaru B9 Tribeca 3.0 (2006) review

    Price:  £29,097

    15 December 2006 by Chris Chilton

    Is this the ugliest car on sale? I like a man who gets straight to the point. The Tribeca’s certainly an acquired taste - it’s difficult to look at either end without wanting to vomit. But at least...

  • Mitsubishi Shogun (2007) review

    Price:  £22,999

    14 December 2006 by Ben Whitworth

    New Shogun? Are you sure? With its faux-rally flared wheelarches, stubby nose complete with diamond-studded ‘Mount Fuji’ nose and hatch-mounted spare wheel, this new fourth-generation Shogun may look...

  • Porsche 911 GT3 UK (2006) review

    Price:  £80,660

    13 December 2006 by Georg Kacher

    What's the GT3 for, and hasn't it been around for ages? We first drove the car in our dark pre-website days but thought we'd revisit it now that the first few have rolled off the boat onto UK soil. As...

  • Mitsubishi Outlander (2006) review

    Price:  £19,664

    12 December 2006 by Ben Whitworth

    Ah yes, the Outlander, aka the C-Crosser and 4007… Yes indeed. Mitsubishi’s new Outlander, which arrives in the UK next March, is the perfect example of the interwoven intricacies of the current...

  • Audi TT Roadster 2.0T (2006) review

    Price:  £26,940

    11 December 2006 by Ben Oliver

    Why do I want to read about a roadster in this weather? Look out of your window. Yes, you’ll see stormclouds, flooded roads and possibly a tornado, but you’ll probably also see an Audi TT roadster. In...

  • Honda Legend 3.5i (2006) review

    Price:  £36,352

    08 December 2006 by Chris Chilton

    Legend? Quite an appropriate name. I don’t think I’ve seen one in the metal since 1989 In fact it was only a couple of years ago that the last Legend disappeared from Car’s GBU although truth be told...

  • Morgan AeroMax (2006) review

    07 December 2006 by James Foxall

    AeroMax? Looks like an Aero 8 with a roof to me Yup, that’s exactly what it is. They’ve used their traditional ash frame for the bodywork and extended it to include the roof. The craftsmanship inside...

  • Renaultsport Megane 230 F1 Team R26 (2006) review

    Price:  £19,860

    04 December 2006 by CJ Hubbard

    Oh my. Someone’s been busy with the stickers. Hmmm. They are a little less than subtle, aren’t they? But this new Renault Megane is a little more than just a go-faster decal job. Celebrating the...

  • Kia Ceed 1.6 S (2006) review

    Price:  £11,545

    30 November 2006 by Richard Aucock

    What's this: a Korean Focus rival with a grammar-busting name? Absolutely. This is the car Kia calls the Cee'd, with a rogue apostrophe to make punctuation pedant Lynne Truss – and us – blow...

  • Daihatsu Terios (2006) review

    Price:  £14,295

    27 November 2006 by Chris Chilton

    You're a bit slow off the mark aren't you? This thing's been on sale for months. Yes, well, we've put off driving it for as long as humanly possible. Memories of the old car you see; some of us are...

  • VW Touran 1.9 TDi (2006) review

    Price:  £17,982

    24 November 2006 by Richard Yarrow

    I think 'new' might be stretching the truth a bit. The front lights are clearly new, but what else has changed? In truth, not a great deal. Those lamps have been reshaped to resemble those of the Eos...

  • Volvo XC90 SE Sport 3.2 (2006) review

    Price:  £38,278

    24 November 2006 by Chris Chilton

    Looks like Volvo’s succumbed and added some attitude to the XC90 That’s right, this new pumped up SE Sport is clearly aimed at people who might have found the XC90 a bit too reserved and instead...

  • Subaru Impreza 1.5R (2006) review

    Price:  £12,495

    22 November 2006 by Chris Chilton

    What do you mean 1.5? Is that the boost level measured in bars? Or the time it takes to get to 60mph? Er, not quite. It refers to the size of the engine in good old-fashioned cubic centimetres. There...

  • Skoda Octavia vRS TDi (2006) review

    Price:  £18,570

    21 November 2006 by Chris Chilton

    A diesel? I thought the vRS was Skoda's GTi. It is. The vRS comes with either the 197bhp FSi turbo 2.0-litre from the Golf GTi or now, with this 2.0 common-rail diesel. It’s the newer, more powerful...

    It’s been T5 this and T5 that, I’m pleased to see you’re finally going to tell me about the C30 that I can afford to fuel. We aim to please. Yes, the blown five-cylinder T5 sounds great and certainly...

  • Honda CR-V 2.2 CDTi (2006) review

    Price:  £20,017

    17 November 2006 by Jed Maxwell

    The castrati of SUVs is back, eh? Steady. The CR-V isn’t the most macho of off-roaders but that hasn’t stopped it being popular. In fact it’s been the market leader for the past few years and given...
