  • Range Rover TDV8 (2006) review

    Price:  £55,100

    14 September 2006 by Phil McNamara

    Looks the same to me – what's new about this Range Rover? Land Rover keeps tinkering with the Range Rover, in a bid to maintain its spot as the pinnacle of SUVs. It's an extensive overhaul for...

  • Mercedes CL600 (2006) review

    Price:  £107,097

    13 September 2006 by Georg Kacher

    Who would buy a CL when they could have an S-class or, more likely, an SL? You’d be surprised just how many people have fallen for the blend of S-class refinement, seating for four and a sharper...

  • BMW X3 3.0sd (2006) review

    Price:  £37,150

    11 September 2006 by Angus Fitton

    I'm stumped - what's new? You're not the only one - apparently this is the revised BMW X3. Although if you can spot all the differences between the pre- and post-facelift cars you really should get...

  • Honda S2000 (2006) review

    Price:  £27,402

    11 September 2006 by Jed Maxwell

    Hasn’t the S2000 been around for ages? It certainly has. It was launched in 1999 but Honda reckons it’s got a few years left in it yet. This is its second face lift (the first came in 2002) and Honda...

  • Lotus Europa S (2006) review

    Price:  £33,945

    10 September 2006 by Ben Barry

    What's this – a slightly bigger Elise? Kind of. Lotus claims the Europa delivers the majority of the Elise and Exige's driving thrills while offering a load more practicality and comfort – 'business...

  • Jaguar XKR Coupe (2006) review

    Price:  £70,097

    07 September 2006 by Ben Oliver

    Another old engine in a new shell; why should I get excited? True, both the new XK and now the new XKR use drivetrains largely carried over from the last-generation XK. But there wasn't much wrong...

  • Suzuki Swift Sport (2006) review

    Price:  £11,549

    05 September 2006 by Angus Fitton

    Suzuki Swift Sport? Sounds like a horrible special edition to me... The name may suggest graphic-laden dealer special, but this is a genuine junior hot hatch. The Swift Sport is a thoroughly sorted,...

  • VW GX3 concept (2006) review

    04 September 2006 by Georg Kacher

    What planet’s this from? It looks like a mash up between a Lotus Elise, Ariel Atom and Reliant Robin… This is Volkswagen’s GX3 – a minimalist three wheeler that combines a superbike’s blistering...

  • Audi S3 (2006) review

    Price:  £27,000

    31 August 2006 by Chris Chilton

    Hot hatch So the fast A3 returns. What’s the story this time? It’s the same basic recipe: turbocharged four-pot motor and Haldex four-wheel drive system, a great cabin and a price that makes it appear...

  • Jeep Wrangler 3.8 (2006) review

    Price:  £22,595

    30 August 2006 by James Foxall

    Jeep's most agricultural model looks the same as ever. Has anything changed? Jeep's design boffins confusingly tell you that the new Wrangler is exactly the same but totally different to the previous...

  • Bentley Arnage T (2006) review

    Price:  £178,200

    30 August 2006 by Nick Trott

    Another new Bentley? Yep, Bentley is on a roll. After Continental GT in 2003, the Flying Spur in 2005 and the new Azure and Continental GTC in '06, now we have a refreshed 2007-model year Arnage. It's...

  • Cadillac SRX (2006) review

    Price:  £27,995

    25 August 2006 by Angus Fitton

    Hmmm, this looks like the dictionary definition of a Yank tank... The SRX is nearly as long as a Range Rover and weighs well over two tonnes, so it's hardly compact. But you ain't seen nothing yet.

    21 August 2006 by Angus Fitton

    Give me the lowdown This is the all-new Corsa, a car Vauxhall vows will banish the Corsa's traditional reputation of being pretty but underwhelming. It's longer and wider than today's car and weighs a...

  • Dodge Challenger Concept (2006) review

    17 August 2006 by Nick Trott

  • Lexus LS460 (2006) review

    Price:  £57,102

    15 August 2006 by Chris Chilton

    A new LS? What happened to the traditional Merc hand-me-down styling? Lexus wanted to create a real identity for this one, so the 460 looks like a scaled up GS. Not unique but recognisably a Lexus and...

  • Chevrolet Captiva 2.0d LT (2006) review

    This is no rebadged Daewoo, unlike the other European Chevys... Spot on. The new Captiva is the first all-new model since GM bought up Daewoo and relaunched it under the Chevrolet brand. In a model...

    A Grand Cherokee at the 'Ring? Surely a fish a long way from its water… Yes, but this is the grandest of Grand Cherokees, the SRT-8. The initials stand for the skunkworks that fettled it, Chrysler's...

  • Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder (2006) review

    Price:  £136,540

    08 August 2006 by Angus Fitton

    Gallardo Spyder in the UK? Does that mean leaky roof and just too damn unwieldy for our streets... You're way off target. A lot of cars simply don't translate to the UK. You drive them on (smooth,...
