  • Skoda Roomster Scout front three-quarter

    Skoda Roomster Scout 1.9 TDi (2007) review

    Price:  £13,070

    07 June 2007 by Kyle Fortune

    Dib dib dib, the Roomster’s gone scouting… Yep, Skoda’s quirky-looking mini-MPV dons a neckerchief and becomes the Roomster Scout. The ‘transformation’ includes a hike in ride height – the Scout...

  • GM Hy-Wire CAR (2007) review

    06 June 2007 by Ben Whitworth

    The Hy-wire? Sounds like a circus act… Don't be fooled. It’s a very significant bit of technology. When General Motors unveiled AUTOnomy at the Detroit Motor Show five years ago, the oddly compelling...

  • Smart ForTwo 1.0 (2007) review

    Price:  £6,840

    03 June 2007 by Ben Oliver

    So this is the car that will save Smart? Given that it’s now Smart’s only model, yes. The Roadster was canned at the end of 2004 and the ForFour last year, leaving only the original two-seat city car.

    03 June 2007 by Ben Oliver

    So this is the car that will save Smart? Given that it’s now Smart’s only model, yes. The Roadster was canned at the end of 2004 and the ForFour last year, leaving only the original two-seat city car. It keeps the ForTwo name, despite no longer having to distinguish itself from its deceased bigger brother. Sales of the other two were...

  • Mazda RX-8 Hydrogen RE (2007) review

    03 June 2007 by Ben Whitworth

    How does a hydrogen-powered RX-8 work – and no technobabble please... It's simple. The RX-8's rotary engine can run on either petrol or hydrogen, which is stored in liquid form in a second fuel tank.

  • 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...

  • VW Polo Bluemotion 1.4 TDi (2007) review

    Price:  £11,995

    03 June 2007 by Chris Chilton

    If 4Motion means four-wheel drive, what’s this Bluemotion all about? Nothing to do with four-wheel drive - or going fast. It’s Volkswagen’s ecological brand applied to the most efficient and...

  • Dodge Demon Concept (2007) review

    01 June 2007 by Nick Trott

    Dodge Demon Roadster. Great name, but this is just a concept car right? For now, yes. But like pretty much all of Dodge, Jeep and Chrysler's concepts, this one is driveable and we have driven it. The...

  • Vauxhall VXR8 (2007) review

    Price:  £35,105

    31 May 2007 by Ben Barry

    That’s one hell of a Vauxhall you've got there... Don’t let the badge fool you. It reads Vauxhall but underneath that chunky sheetmetal is Holden’s new Commodore Clubsport R8 with a higher spec GTS...

  • Nissan X-Trail 2.0 dCi (2007) review

    Price:  £20,395

    24 May 2007 by Daniel Harrison

    Is Nissan pulling a fast one? This looks the same as the old X-Trail It’s a dead ringer for the one that's just been discontinued, isn’t it? Incredibly, it’s totally new, right down to the engines.

  • Mercedes CL65 AMG (2007) review

    Price:  £149,565

    22 May 2007 by Nick Trott

    Looks like a bit of a beast. Is this another warp-enabled starship from AMG? Yep. This is Mercedes’ big CL-class coupe fitted with AMG’s ballistic 6.0-litre V12 bi-turbo engine and a bunch of...

    Price:  £145,300

    21 May 2007 by James Foxall

    Isn’t the Ford GT pretty tasty already? Yes it is, but this model is even more special. Ford has actually stopped producing the GT so it decided to do something exceptional with the last handful of...

  • Mercedes CLK63 AMG Black Series (2008) review

    Price:  £100,000

    16 May 2007 by Nick Trott

    Black Series? Sounds posh and a little edgy. What's all that about then? AMG groups its cars into five divisions. The Black Series machines are second only to the borderline psychotic and...

  • Peugeot 207 SW Outdoor (2007) review

    Price:  £13,275

    15 May 2007 by James Foxall

    Superminis From its name I’m guessing this is a successor to the 206 SW Exactly right. Making an estate version of a supermini might not be a popular pastime for many car companies but Peugeot...

    11 May 2007 by Georg Kacher

    Volkswagen took their time unleashing this handsome devil Yes, the previous VW management dithered, discussed and delayed the project until it was almost past its sell-by date. In July 2007, two full...

    10 May 2007 by Peter Burgess

    Nissan's new-for-2007 350Z is still a cracker The 2007 350Z looks the same as the old one, doesn’t it? If you look carefully there’s a bulge in the bonnet and therein lies the story. The new-for-2007...

    Is this 4.2-litre diesel Q7 just playing another part in the Audi master plan for world dominance? When you’ve spent a gazillion euros developing the world’s most powerful V8 diesel engine it would...

    08 May 2007 by James Foxall

    A six-wheeled Citroen pick-up truck? Are you serious? Certainly am. And with its weird Cruise Crosser, Citroen is too. Pick-ups are big business, particularly in the UK where people have started...
