  • VW Eos 2.0T (2006) review

    Price:  £19,370

    31 July 2006 by Georg Kacher

    A drop top VW - how desirable. I take it the people's convertible is back? Yes and no. True, the Eos is from the people's car maker and it effectively replaces the old Golf cabriolet. But that...

  • Mitsubishi Evo IX FQ360 (2006) review

    Price:  £33,421

    31 July 2006 by Ben Whitworth

    Yet another FQ car from Mitsubishi - aren't these faux-rally cars a bit out of favour at the moment? True, but after ten minutes behind the wheel of the UK-only FQ360, you’ll wonder why. It's an...

  • Mercedes SLK55 AMG Black Series (2006) review

    Price:  £73,795

    31 July 2006 by Angus Fitton

    Sounds ominous, what's it all about? AMG's gone hardcore to take on BMW’s 'CSL' and Audi's 'RS' monster saloons. From the new cutting edge Performance Studio in Affalterbach AMG has the capability to...

  • Porsche Cayman (2006) review

    Price:  £36,220

    31 July 2006 by Angus Fitton

    Good grief, it's a slightly slower Porsche! What are they thinking? Not everyone can afford the £43,930 for the Cayman S. So here's a Cayman minus the ‘S’ bit and minus a handy £7710. There are...

  • Lotus Elise S (2006) review

    Price:  £24,500

    31 July 2006 by Angus Fitton

    I'm stumped. It looks exactly the same as the Elise R, so why's it here? When Rover died the entry level, K-Series-powered Elise went with it along with a loyal customer base that couldn't stretch to...

  • Audi TT 3.2 V6 quattro (2006) review

    Price:  £29,635

    31 July 2006 by Jason Barlow

    Another Volkswagen hatch in drag? Not quite. Where the old car shared too much with the Golf - to the detriment of the driving experience - this new TT is actually an ally/steel hybrid, with an...

  • BMW Z4 M Coupe (2006) review

    Price:  £42,245

    31 July 2006 by Jon Smith

    There's been a lot of talk about this being the reincarnation of the True, it's a lot less confrontational in its appearance than the 'bread van' original, but this Z4-based coupé follows the same...

  • Alfa Romeo Spider 3.2 V6 (2007) review

    Price:  £31,250

    31 July 2006 by Gavin Green

    Just look at it. This has to be one of the sexiest cars on the road - regardless of price. Another beguilingly beautiful new Alfa Romeo, sparkling in the hot Italian summer sun... Pretty thing, isn't...

  • Skoda Roomster 1.4 (2006) review

    Price:  £11,505

    31 July 2006 by Ben Whitworth

    Is that really a Skoda? It sure is. The Roomster is the standard bearer for a new range of design-led Skodas, which means next year's new Fabia will be far more interesting than the current model, and...

  • Ferrari F599 GTB Fiorano (2006) review

    Price:  £179,902

    31 July 2006 by Chris Chilton

    That name's a bit of a mouthful. What's it all about? It's the replacement for the much-loved but dull-looking 575, a two-seat coupe based on the four-place 612 Scaglietti. The numbers refer to the...

  • Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT (2006) review

    28 July 2006 by Chris Chilton

    Sport GT? Explain please? Maserati has expanded its big saloon range, adding two new models to sit alongside the regular Quattroporte: the luxury-angled Executive GT and the performance-focused Sport...

  • Ford Galaxy 2.0 (2006) review

    Price:  £19,495

    28 July 2006 by Angus Fitton

    A new Galaxy. Where does it fit into Ford's burgeoning array of MPVs? It's quite simple really. The Galaxy is Ford's top-end people carrier, a genuine seven seater with a tall roof, heaps of cabin...

  • Ford S-Max 2.5 (2006) review

    Price:  £20,995

    28 July 2006 by Angus Fitton

    Good grief, another MPV! Why should I care? I'll set the scene. We're just north of Seville on some of the best, most challenging and downright scary roads Europe can offer. The latest Porsche 911 was...

  • Alfa Romeo 159 Sportwagon 3.2 V6 (2007) review

    Price:  £29,550

    28 July 2006 by Chris Chilton

    159? Looks like a facelifted 156? If that were true it would be the worst facelift since Burt Reynolds' went Asian last year. Actaully it's not unattractive, it's just that the 156 was so gorgeous.

    Price:  £80,560

    28 July 2006 by Georg Kacher

    Here come the high-performance 911's Oh yes. Two years into the life of 997 generation, the Turbo and GT3 are bearing down on us. The Turbo - 480bhp, four-wheel drive, £98k - is on sale now. The GT3 -...

  • Dodge Caliber 1.8 S (2007) review

    Price:  £12,495

    27 July 2006 by Ken Gibson

    Another Focus wannabee? Say hello to the Dodge Caliber, America's answer to the ubiquitous Ford but with a big dose of attitude thrown in for free. The Yanks think it's a small car, but they think...

  • Mercedes CLK63 AMG (2006) review

    Price:  £66,317

    26 July 2006 by Chris Chilton

    Another manic Merc? So how many squillion horsepower does this one have? It's not the car that's important, more what's changed under the bonnet. This is our first taste of a road car powered by AMG's...

    After the rapturous reception given to the brilliant new RS4 we've got high hopes for the S6. As well you might. All the ingredients are there: V10 Lamborghini engine, grippy Torsen four-wheel drive...

  • Nissan Note 1.6i (2006) review

    26 July 2006 by Ben Whitworth

    What is this? It looks like a supermini with elephantiasis. Its the Nissan Note, the production version of last year's Geneva show concept car, the Tone. Together with the Qashqai softroader and the...

  • BMW 335i Coupe (2006) review

    25 July 2006 by Chris Chilton

    A new engine for the ubiquitous 3-series? A new body too. This is the coupe version of the 3-series saloon that hit showrooms in 2005. But BMW wanted to create a big bang for the launch of the...
