  • 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.

  • Dodge Avenger 2.0 CRD (2007) review

    21 March 2007 by Kyle Fortune

    Dodge’s European assault continues then? Sure does, after the introduction of the Caliber last year Dodge is now offering us its new Avenger. It’s the Caliber’s big brother, competing in the D-sector,...

  • Vauxhall Corsa VXR (2007) review

    Price:  £15,625

    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...

  • Mercedes SLK200 Edition 10 (2007) review

    Price:  £29,725

    05 March 2007 by Chris Chilton

    So what's Mercedes come up with to mark the SLK's first decade? The SLK Edition 10, a special version of the roadster with some very special paint. No different mechanically from the existing...

  • Jeep Compass 2.0 CRD Limited manual (2007) review

    Price:  £19,010

    02 March 2007 by Jed Maxwell

    Is this the much vaunted ‘Jeep for ladies’ then? Well sort of. This is Jeep’s first ‘compact sport utility’ and it’s hoping the softer more modern lines will appeal to drivers who want a Jeep but...

    02 March 2007 by Chris Chilton

    Er, help me out, I’ve been staring at the picture, pen poised, for 20 minutes and I haven’t ringed a single difference See that big air intake under the bumper? See how the ends point upwards instead...

  • Citroen C4 'By Loeb' (2007) review

    28 February 2007 by Chris Chilton

    Calling it C4 'by Loeb' makes it sounds like some sort of perfume. What's it for and did the world's greatest rally driver really have anything to do with it? The C4 by Loeb (wouldn't 'Loeb edition'...

  • BMW 120i (2007) review

    Price:  £18,995

    28 February 2007 by Chris Chilton

    It’s a 1-series with two fewer doors Well spotted. Two years after we first got our hands on the original five-door 1-series, BMW has given us the sportier (if only psychologically) three-door.

  • Skoda Octavia Scout 2.0 review

    Price:  £19,670

    27 February 2007 by James Foxall

    Skoda Octavia Scout: sounds a bit Dib Dib Dib? It’s Skoda’s way of describing mildly tweaked ‘off-road’ versions of its cars. With this model, it’s taken the Octavia 4x4 estate and made it longer,...

  • Hyundai Coupe facelift 2.7 (2007) V6 review

    Price:  £19,597

    19 February 2007 by Chris Chilton

    Doesn't look too bad. Someone said Hyundai Coupe facelift and all I could think of was that mess they made of the original Coupe seven years ago... We're equally relieved. This Coupe still looks...

  • Maybach 62S (2007) review

    Price:  £345,687

    13 February 2007 by Ben Whitworth

    What’s this – more power for the plutocrats? In a word, yes. The £341,585 Maybach 62S - the S stands for Special, should you be wondering – gets the same mighty 6.0-litre twin turbo V12 as last year’s...

  • Mazda Hakaze concept (2007) review

    12 February 2007 by Ben Whitworth

    Another week, another new Mazda concept car… I know what you mean. This is the Hakaze – that’s Japanese for leaf being blown in the wind – and it follows on from the Nagare shown at Los Angeles and...

  • Peugeot 207 CC (2007) driven review

    Price:  £16,922

    07 February 2007 by Peter Burgess

    The Peugeot 207 looks the same as the 206 CC. A bit unimaginative, isn’t it? Peugeot thinks style is a major selling factor, so the genes of the earlier 206 are obvious. The company could be accused...

  • Skoda Fabia 1.9 TDi (2007) review

    Price:  £11,855

    05 February 2007 by Chris Chilton

    Looks like the new Roomster, but without the cut-and-shut treatment That’s because the Fabia and Roomster are the only Skodas so far to wear the new corporate nose. The Czech firm wants to move away...

  • Mercedes McLaren SLR 722 Edition (2007) review

    Price:  £350,000

    02 February 2007 by Ben Whitworth

    Are you telling me this beast has 722bhp under the bonnet? Not quite. The 722 – or the Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR 722 Edition to quote its full name – is a limited run of tweaked SLRs, named after the...

  • Fiat Bravo 1.9 JTD (2007) review

    Price:  £13,795

    01 February 2007 by Gavin Green

    A new Fiat Bravo! It replaces the Stilo but, given how unpopular the Stilo was, should anyone care? Yes, the old Stilo was one of those yawningly average cars that rather summed up Fiat’s problems.

  • Kia Carens 2.0 CRDi (2007) review

    31 January 2007 by Chris Chilton

    So it's a Kia. And an MPV Okay, so it's not exactly high on your lottery win wish list but Kia is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with in car circles thanks to cars like the Picanto and its...
