  • 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

    Price:  £14,045

    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...

    30 January 2007 by Frank Ifield

    Feels like we’ve been waiting an eternity but the Type R is finally here Yes it's been tough for us too. We’ve had a terrible couple of years where we’ve had to suffer endless parades of 500bhp Mercs...

  • Infiniti G35 S (2007) review

    29 January 2007 by Ben Barry

    A G35S what? Infiniti. This halo brand is to Nissan what Lexus is to Toyota – a premium range to take on the might of the upper-crust European competition. Europe will get the Infiniti range in 2008 –...

  • Porsche Cayenne 3.6 V6 (2007) review

    27 January 2007 by Tim Pollard

    New Porsche Cayenne: the lowdown Love it or loathe it, the Cayenne has done wonders for Porsche's profitability. Purists can argue all day long that it diluted the brand DNA with all those common VW...

  • Cadillac Escalade CAR (2007) review

    26 January 2007 by Ben Whitworth

    Ah, the Escalade. Is this American bruiser about to give Euro rivals like the Range Rover Sport, X5, M-class and Q7 a bit of a hiding? In a word, no. Or more accurately, it doesn’t have a snowball’s...

  • BMW 335i (2007) Convertible review

    Price:  £38,350

    24 January 2007 by Chris Chilton

    That can’t be a coupe-cabrio! Where’s the huge backside, the stupid wedgy profile and enormously overlong windscreen? It certainly is a CC - BMW’s first ever in fact – although you’re right, it...

    Nothing looks particularly different here. Where’s the change? This year heralds the 50th anniversary of the Seven. Besides making a cluster of special edition livery paint-schemed cars, the...

    22 January 2007 by Ben Whitworth

    Finally, a Hummer for the UK – was it worth the wait? Yes, the Hummer H3 is finally here, and depending on your sense of taste, you’ll either be rejoicing or rolling in the aisles. The H3 is the...

    19 January 2007 by Ben Oliver

    An auto box in a big luxury saloon? That’s hardly news… It is for Maserati. To mark the Quattroporte out as a very different, more sporting proposition to its mainly German rivals, it has only been...

    A mid-engined supercar from Audi – how extraordinary... Make no mistake, this is a seminal motoring moment. The R8 is Audi’s first mid-engined supercar, designed to prove that Ingolstadt can mix it...

    What’s this? A hatchback? An off-roader? A mini-MPV? None of the above. It’s a Nissan Qashqai, it replaces the Almera hatchback (if you can remember what that was) and, according to its maker, ‘it...
