  • Honda Civic Type R (2007) review

    Price:  £17,627

    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

    Price:  £37,100

    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

    Price:  £46,895

    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...

  • Caterham Seven Roadsport 125 (2007) review

    Price:  £19,195

    22 January 2007 by Jonny Smith

    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...

  • Hummer H3 3.7 (2007) review

    Price:  £31,000

    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...

  • Maserati Quattroporte Automatica (2007) review

    Price:  £77,102

    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...

  • Audi R8 (2007) review

    Price:  £76,825

    18 January 2007 by Phil Mcnamara

    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...

  • Nissan Qashqai 2.0 dCi (2007) review

    Price:  £17,999

    17 January 2007 by Ben Oliver

    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...

    16 January 2007 by Tim Pollard

    The Toyota What? I thought you said this was the new Corolla It is! Toyota openly acknowledges the Corolla has become a bit, well, dull and is plotting a stepchange with this important new small...

  • Ferrari 612 HGT-S (2006) review

    Price:  £183,145

    26 December 2006 by James Foxall

    Hasn’t the 612 Scaglietti been around for a while? Yes it has. It was launched in 2004, but Ferrari has just revealed a special HGT-S pack for it. It costs a steep £7420, but that’s fairly...

  • VW Golf GTi Edition 30 (2006) review

    Price:  £22,795

    22 December 2006 by Chris Chilton

    Has it really been 30 years since the original hot Golf first arrived? Actually the first 1.6-litre four-speed GTi went on sale in Germany in 1976 so the German market got its hands on this...

  • Mercedes E500 facelift (2006) review

    Price:  £47,717

    21 December 2006 by Ben Whitworth

    You’ve used the wrong picture, that’s the old E-class, sort yourselves out! Well, Mercedes calls it the ‘new’ E-class but it’s really a heavily revised version of the model launched four years ago.

  • Subaru B9 Tribeca 3.0 (2006) review

    Price:  £29,097

    15 December 2006 by Chris Chilton

    Is this the ugliest car on sale? I like a man who gets straight to the point. The Tribeca’s certainly an acquired taste - it’s difficult to look at either end without wanting to vomit. But at least...

    14 December 2006 by Ben Whitworth

    New Shogun? Are you sure? With its faux-rally flared wheelarches, stubby nose complete with diamond-studded ‘Mount Fuji’ nose and hatch-mounted spare wheel, this new fourth-generation Shogun may look...

  • Porsche 911 GT3 UK (2006) review

    Price:  £80,660

    13 December 2006 by Georg Kacher

    What's the GT3 for, and hasn't it been around for ages? We first drove the car in our dark pre-website days but thought we'd revisit it now that the first few have rolled off the boat onto UK soil. As...

    Ah yes, the Outlander, aka the C-Crosser and 4007… Yes indeed. Mitsubishi’s new Outlander, which arrives in the UK next March, is the perfect example of the interwoven intricacies of the current...

    Price:  £26,940

    11 December 2006 by Ben Oliver

    Why do I want to read about a roadster in this weather? Look out of your window. Yes, you’ll see stormclouds, flooded roads and possibly a tornado, but you’ll probably also see an Audi TT roadster. In...
