  • Mercedes B170 NGT (2008) gas powered review

    Price:  £22,791

    25 June 2008 by Christopher Hubbard

    The initials at the end of Mercedes-Benz B 170 NGT do not stand for No Green Technology. That’s just a rumour. BMW may be thrashing Mercedes in the environmental PR stakes just now, but it doesn’t mean the big M isn’t trying. The B 170 NGT is a B-Class with a conscience. And a boot full of Natural Gas… So, the...

  • Saab 9-5 Bio-fuel 2.0T (2007) review

    Price:  £23,765

    02 August 2007 by Ben Oliver

    Nice stickers! Don’t tell me – it’s a Saab 9-5 running on bio-ethanol… Well-spotted Sherlock. This is indeed a very special 9-5 that turns up its nose at conventional fuels in favour of bio-ethanol.

  • Ford Focus FFV (2007) review

    Price:  £14,795

    31 July 2007 by Ben Oliver

  • Lotus Exige 265E (2007) review

    03 June 2007 by Angus Fitton

    It looks like a slightly more colourful Exige - what's the story? This is the Exige 265E - the fastest ever Exige and the first bio-ethanol Lotus. The digits 265 denote the 265PS power output, or...
