  • Ford Airstream concept (2007) review

    17 July 2007 by James Foxall

    Airstream. Isn’t that an American caravan? Indeed it is. The sort that even people who hate caravans have to admit looks quite cool. Ford decided they represented the ultimate American journey so it...

  • Audi A5 3.0 TDi (2007) review

    Price:  £33,430

    13 July 2007 by Ben Pulman

    Haven’t you driven the Audi A5 before? We have, but only in S5 guise, and not on UK roads. Back in April we drove the 354bhp V8 but that was Audi’s attempt to steal a little limelight from the BMW M3;...

  • BMW M3 (2007) review

    Price:  £50,625

    12 July 2007 by Ben Barry

    You’ve driven the new BMW M3 then? Oh yes. The E92 model is the fourth generation of the M3, a car that first arrived in 1986. Back then it had a four-cylinder engine with around 200bhp. The new car...

  • Kia Exceed Cabrio (2007) concept review

    10 July 2007 by James Foxall

    Sexy car from Kia shock! That’s right. When Peter Schreyer (who oversaw the design of the original Audi TT and new Beetle in his time at the VW group) took over as head of design for the Koreans he...

  • BMW M3 coupe (2007) vs Audi RS4 (2007) cabrio review

    07 July 2007 by Chris Chilton

    M3 meets its nemesis So you’ve already devoured CAR’s first drive verdict on the new BMW M3 and its V8 engine and watched the video of us punishing it at the Ascari race resort, but how does it stack...

  • BMW M3 - E30, E36 and E46 driven review

    06 July 2007 by Chris Chilton

    The ultimate BMW M3 test: E30 Sport Evo v E36 Evo v E46 CSL M3. No confusion, just instant comprehension. The badge, the name, is universally understood. One letter and one number that combined are as...

  • VW Touareg V10 TDi (2007) review

    Price:  £54,867

    03 July 2007 by Steve Prentice

    The new VW Touareg? What's different? Yes, true, the new-look front end is more of a tweak than a full redesign, but VW has changed 2300 individual parts in the new Touareg, including brakes,...

  • Jeep Patriot 2.0 CRD (2007) review

    Price:  £19,010

    02 July 2007 by Christopher Hubbard

    The Jeep Patriot? I'm whistling the Star-Spangled Banner already... The name ain't exactly subtle, is it? And the odd names don't end there; the Patriot's new 4x4 system is called the 'Freedom Drive...

  • Lexus GS450h hybrid (2007) review

    Price:  £38,080

    29 June 2007 by Ben Oliver

    Looks like a limo, but I suppose if David Cameron has one, it must be green… We’re not sure how much Tory-boy’s ‘celebrity’ endorsement is worth, but the Lexus GS450h is probably the most technically...

  • Seat Altea Freetrack 4 2.0 TDi (2007) review

    Price:  £21,395

    28 June 2007 by Richard Aucock

    Oh lord, not another modern-day Matra Rancho. Ah – immediately, you’ve spotted Seat’s biggest problem with the Altea Freetrack. This is a crossover – part MPV, part 4x4. And, with its ‘family car...

  • Hyundai i30 1.6 CRDi (2007) review

    Price:  £12,295

    28 June 2007 by Guy Bird

    Is this the new Kia Cee’d in disguise? Not really. The Hyundai i30 may share the same basic platform and engines as the Cee’d by sister brand Kia but its exterior, interior and ride and handling...

  • Honda Civic IMA CAR (2007) review

    27 June 2007 by Ben Oliver

    The poor man’s Prius? The Civic IMA is certainly cheaper than the better-known Prius, starting from £16,300 to the Toyota’s £17,765. Its propulsion principle is the same; IMA stands for Integrated...

  • Citroen C3 Stop & Start (2007) review

    Price:  £11,795

    26 June 2007 by Ben Oliver

    That’s not the future of green motoring - it’s just a Citroen C3. Don’t be so dismissive. The lengthily titled Citroen C3 1.4i 16v Stop & Start SensoDrive five-door, is very much the present of...

  • Ford Focus FCV (2007) review

    25 June 2007 by Ben Oliver

    Why am I supposed to get excited about a last-generation Focus saloon? Partly because it has a spec-sheet that reads like a Porsche 911 GT3 RS – ultra-thin lightweight glass, bespoke parts in...

    Price:  £32,095

    25 June 2007 by Peter Burgess

    Another Volvo Estate. Didn’t the Swedes invent this sector of the market? Listen to Volvo and you’d believe that its estate car stands alongside Coca Cola and Levi jeans as one of the world’s leading...

    Price:  £28,002

    19 June 2007 by Peter Burgess

    It looks like there’s a major change going on here Certainly is. Gone are the smooth curves of the previous C-class, replaced with something far more edgy and, dare we say it, rather modern. The...
