  • Audi A8 2.8 V6 facelift (2007) review

    Price:  £49,995

    03 September 2007 by CJ Hubbard

    I'm sorry, did you say this was a mid-life facelift for Audi's luxury A8? Fair enough – the cosmetic changes aren't that exciting. In fact, they're really rather difficult to spot, being limited to...

  • Mini stop-start (2007) review

    03 September 2007 by Tim Pollard

    Stop-start? Is the Mini doing a little bit of Prius copying? Sort of. Stop-start systems are nothing new (manufacturers have been experimenting for decades) but they certainly have been made...

  • Subaru Impreza 2.0R (2007) review

    Price:  £17,495

    31 August 2007 by Dan Trent

    The Impreza turns sensible but who is going to buy it? Subaru is either extremely brave or taking a very big risk. With its new hatchback Impreza, it's deliberately moving away from the established...

  • Caparo T1 (2007) review

    Price:  £210,000

    30 August 2007 by Chris Chilton

    What’s this, some refugee from last weekend’s Grand Prix invading CAR Online? No, this is in fact a road car. Well it’s road-legal anyway. It’s the Caparo T1, nee Freestream, and it’s the closest...

  • Peugeot 308 1.6 VHT (2007) review

    Price:  £15,995

    30 August 2007 by Peter Burgess

    Are you sure this is really a new Peugeot? Yes. Well. Peugeot has this 'feline' design theme going on that buyers lapped up on the 206, a hatchback that sold above its station simply through visual...

  • Kia Ceed SW 1.6 CRDi (2007) review

    Price:  £13,745

    28 August 2007 by David Motton

    What’s this, an estate version of the Kia Ceed hatchback? Yep, but it’s called SW. Sounds a bit more aspirational than plain old estate, you see. The Ceed hatchback isn’t a bad starting point. It was...

  • 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

    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.

  • 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.
