  • Mercedes C63 AMG (2007) review

    Price:  £50,000

    27 August 2007 by Georg Kacher

    So this is Merc’s answer to the new BMW M3... Got it. Hot C's have long been part of Mercedes' line-up, but none has had us quite as excited as this, the C63 which as the name suggests, gets the big...

  • Citroen C6 2.2 HDi (2007) review

    Price:  £28,395

    23 August 2007 by Ben Pulman

    A big Citroen saloon? Surely they’ve learnt by now that these don’t sell... Apparently not, but when you have a heritage as rich and idiosyncratic as the DS, SM and CX then perhaps you’ll never learn.

  • Renault Laguna Dynamique 1.5 dCi 110 (2007) review

    Price:  £17,100

    23 August 2007 by Ben Pulman

    Saloon Why is Renault even bothering to make another Laguna? Because the so-called D-segment isn’t dead, yet. Although this market sector peaked at 3.4m European sales in 1998, nearly one million cars...

  • Chrysler Nassau concept (2007) CAR review

    13 August 2007 by Nick Trott

    So, is this the new Chrysler 300C then? In a way, yes. The 300C gets a refresh late this year – and it’s likely to be the last for the popular and increasingly genre-defining American executive car.

  • Fiat Bravo 1.4 T-Jet 150 (2007) review

    Price:  £13,395

    11 August 2007 by Mark Nichol

    A Fiat family hatchback...that actually looks good. What's going on? Yes, Fiat is in the midst of a resurgence, what with the very pleasant Grande Punto, the cheery Panda and the soon-to-be-a-legend...

  • Daihatsu Materia (2007) review

    Price:  £10,995

    09 August 2007 by Tim Pollard

    This looks like a Japanese-market mini or a US Scion... Bingo! That's exactly what the Materia is. It's sold in Japan as both a Toyota and Daihatsu, and it's not even new to mainland Europe, where...

  • Fisker Tramonto (2007) review

    Price:  £170,000

    08 August 2007 by Ben Barry

    What’s this, a secret new Aston? No, but it’s not a bad guess. This is, in fact, a high-quality makeover based on the Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG. Make that high-quality and expensive, because once you’ve...

  • BMW M5 Touring (2007) review

    Price:  £67,725

    08 August 2007 by Ged Maxwell

    An M5 with a massive boot - sounds win-win to me. It is, almost. The anomalous M5 Touring is M-division chalk to the M6 convertible's cheese. Both have the same 500bhp V10, yet that the M5 looks...

  • Renault Clio Grand Tour concept (2007) review

    Price:  £13,000

    08 August 2007 by James Foxall

    It’s called the Grand Tour but it looks just like a Clio Estate to me… Well spotted - that’s exactly what this is. It's simply the concept version that was built for the Geneva Motor Show 2007 as a...

  • Renault Twingo GT 1.2 TCE (2007) review

    Price:  £9,995

    08 August 2007 by Ged Maxwell

    A small car from Renault... you mean smaller than the Clio and Modus? Yes, that'll be the Twingo. Don't let the chunky looks fool you – this is very definitely pitched below the Clio in size and...

  • Lexus LS600h hybrid (2007) review

    Price:  £81,400

    07 August 2007 by Ged Maxwell

    Another hi-tech hybrid feast from Lexus? What's on the menu then? Well, if the gadget-laden LS460 isn't quite gadgety enough for you, this green LS hybrid might satisfy your appetite for technology.

  • Ford C-Max H2 ICE (2007) review

    Another hydrogen-powered Focus – what’s the difference between this and the FCV? The H2 ICE stands for hydrogen internal combustion engine. It has the kind of engine you’d recognize - Ford’s global...

  • 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.

  • Honda FCX fuel-cell concept car (2007) review

    01 August 2007 by Ben Oliver

    So this is a ‘production fuel cell car’? Can’t find it in the Honda price list… You won’t. California law requires big car makers to offer zero-emission vehicles as part of their line-up, and the...

  • Vauxhall Antara 2.0 TDi (2007) review

    Price:  £24,095

    01 August 2007 by Ben Pulman

    A Vauxhall 4x4 is all well and good, but aren’t they a bit late to the party? Ignoring all the environemtal isssues for a moment, Luton is indeed very late to the segment – if you discount the...

  • Ford Focus FFV (2007) review

    Price:  £14,795

    31 July 2007 by Ben Oliver

    Aren’t alternative fuel vehicles meant to look like escapees from Buck Rogers? They used to, but Ford has the right idea. The only difference between this and a conventional Focus is a tiny ‘FFV’...

    It’s the one SUV Red Ken can’t object to… Not quite. Full credit to Lexus for making the RX400h the first car in both the luxury and SUV sectors to have a hybrid powertrain; its impressive CO2 claim...

    24 July 2007 by Georg Kacher
