  • Mazda 3 2.0D (2007) review

    Price:  £16,750

    08 May 2007 by Ben Whitworth

    This Mazda looks vaguely familiar – the 3 is hardly new is it? True, but the new turbo diesel engine under its bonnet is. Mazda has finally got around to boosting its 3 line-up with the big 2.0-litre...

  • Jaguar XJ 2.7 TDVi (2007) review

    Price:  £45,542

    04 May 2007 by Chris Chilton

    New. In what sense exactly? Okay, so neither you, I nor Jaguar is under any illusion that the ‘real’ new XJ can’t come soon enough. Current Jag execs admit that the decision to stick with retro design...

  • Daihatsu Copen (2007) review

    Price:  £10,995

    02 May 2007 by Jack Carfrae

    But this looks just like the last Copen? What's new about it? The latest incarnation of the cheap 'n' cheerful little roadster from Daihatsu hasn't changed at all on the outside apart from an...

  • Subaru Impreza RB320 review

    Price:  £29,995

    26 April 2007 by Chris Chilton

    Another special edition Impreza. We must be into three figures by now Probably. This one’s the RB320, built as a tribute to the late former WRC champ Richard Burns who died in 2005, hence the RB in...

  • Honda Civic Type R Rally (2007) review

    26 April 2007 by Ben Whitworth

    What’s this – I didn't know Honda was going rallying? It’s not, well, not just yet. Let me explain. In 2005, the FIA World Council decided to create a new cost-effective rally championship for 2007,...

  • Renaultsport Megane 2.0 dCi 175 (2007) review

    Price:  £19,450

    26 April 2007 by Richard Aucock

    Golf GT TDI, SEAT Leon FR TDI, Toyota Auris D-4D T180... there are a few diesel hot hatches around nowadays... Indeed, which is why the RenaultSport engineers built a concept fitted with the...

  • Audi S5 (2007) review

    Price:  £39,825

    26 April 2007 by Georg Kacher

    Have I missed something? How can we be reading about an S5 when we haven't even had an A5? Because Audi knew BMW was going to launch its M3 this spring and wanted to spoil the Munich firm's thunder.

  • Renault Clio 197 R27 (2007) review

    Price:  £17,250

    25 April 2007 by Richard Aucock

    The Clio F1 Team R27. That's the 197 special edition named after this year's slothful F1 car, right? Ooh, get you. We should be feeling sympathy for Renault. It wraps up the World Championship with...

  • Ford Mondeo 2.0 TDCi (2007) review

    Price:  £17,595

    24 April 2007 by Tim Pollard

    A new Mondeo... isn't that supposed to be a snore-worthy non-event? Definitely not. The very mention of Mondeo might not raise the heartbeat, but this is an important car for Ford. Not only does it...

  • Cadillac BLS 1.9D (2007) review

    Price:  £21,473

    24 April 2007 by Julian Kirk

    Another US saloon arriving in Britain with right-hand drive? What's so special about the BLS? It's the first Cadillac offered with a diesel engine. Well if you discount the disastrously unreliable...

    Price:  £11,625

    19 April 2007 by CJ Hubbard

    This is old news isn't it? We've seen this new new MINI before... Ah, but no. You've seen the new Cooper, and the new Cooper S - the sportiest models. This brand spanking pair of cheery-faced...

  • Toyota Hilux D-4D 170 (2007) review

    Price:  £18,195

    05 April 2007 by Chris Chilton

    I thought this was CAR? Looks more like a truck to me. A truck it is and it’s here on CARonline because the British tax loophole is closing up. For the past five years or so sales in commercial...

  • Proton Satria Neo 1.6 GSX (2007) review

    Price:  £9,595

    29 March 2007 by Chris Chilton

    Well there’s a blast from the past. A pretty unwelcome one at that Hold on there. Don’t you remember the old Satria GTi? Okay, so the engine was rough as a a belt-driven sander and the square exhausts...

  • Peugeot 207 GTi (2007) review

    Price:  £15,395

    27 March 2007 by Chris Chilton

    Peugeot seems to have happily vacated its place at the top of the hot hatch pile in recent years. What’s the 207 GTi going to do to change our minds? Make the competition look expensive, for a start.

  • Land Rover Defender 90 (2007) review

    Price:  £21,380

    26 March 2007 by Gavin Green

    A new Defender! Though the old girl still looks much the same as she did 60 years ago You’re right – the Defender traces its ancestry back to 1948 and remains the granddaddy of off-roaders, the Morgan...

  • Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera (2007) review

    Price:  £145,000

    23 March 2007 by Georg Kacher

    What's so special about this evil-looking bit of kit? It's a harder, faster and lighter Lamborghini Gallardo, a kind of pre-emptive strike against the Ferrari F430 Challenge Stradale due for launch...

  • Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster (2007) review

    Price:  £91,000

    23 March 2007 by Chris Chilton

    A new Aston Martin convertible? Indeed, but don’t call it that, or even a Volante: this is the Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster. Those five words will set you back £91,000, £8k more than the coupe.

    21 March 2007 by Kyle Fortune

    13 March 2007 by Chris Chilton

    Not exactly the shy and retiring sort is it? Come on, this is a product of Vauxhall’s VXR division, a sub-marque that makes a point of being ruder, lairier and louder than any of its rivals. So while...

  • Mercedes C350 Sport (2007) review

    Price:  £35,577

    12 March 2007 by Richard Aucock

    Seven years since the last, an all-new C-Class. What are the highlights? Mercedes has gone back to basics with the new C. Keen to banish memories of the E-class quality/breakdown/recall debacle, it...
