  • Honda Accord Sport GT (2007) CAR review

    Price:  £20,767

    01 November 2007 by Glen Waddington

    The Accord. Been around a while now, hasn’t it? Yep, that’s right. The seventh generation Honda Accord has been around since 2003, and it’s been popular all that time thanks to its sharp looks,...

  • Toyota i-Real (2007) concept review

    31 October 2007 by Tim Pollard

    Toyota i-Real: the weirdest road test ever? Well, let's clear up any confusion straight away. This isn't a conventional CAR road test. We didn't pile on hundreds of miles in the i-Real. We didn't...

  • BMW 635d (2007) review

    Price:  £53,910

    30 October 2007 by Richard Aucock

    A 635d? Hmm, potentially an interesting combo… Indeed. Mating the excellent twin-turbo 3.0-litre diesel to BMW’s mildly-facelifted 6-Series Coupe and Cabriolet, creating (they say) the world’s first...

  • BMW 123d Coupe M Sport front three-quarters

    BMW 123d Coupe M Sport (2008) review

    Price:  £26,290

    29 October 2007 by Richard Aucock

    We quite liked the BMW 135i, but the bulk of the 1-series Coupe sales will be diesel. How times change. The 120d boasts 177bhp (to think we thought a 1990s 325i, with 170bhp, was fast) but it’s...

  • Suzuki Splash 1.2 (2007) review

    Price:  £7,000

    26 October 2007 by James Foxall

    It looks quite small. Where will the Splash sit in Suzuki’s range? It’s a replacement for the unloved and unlovable Wagon R+ and built on the underpinnings of the current Swift. It’s the same size as...

  • BMW's Efficient Dynamics (2007) review

    26 October 2007 by Richard Aucock

    I’m seeing a lot of talk about EfficientDynamics from BMW… You are, because while we’ve read all about the technology – intelligent alternator control, glass mat battery, low-rolling-resistance...

  • Nissan GT-R (2007) - first ride review

    Price:  £60,000

    24 October 2007 by Ben Barry

    You’ve had a ride in the new Nissan GT-R, then? We have, as you might have seen on our video clip. When CAR was invited to photograph the GT-R in Hokkaido (on a strictly look but don’t touch basis),...

  • Kia Kee concept (2007) review

    22 October 2007 by James Foxall

    This Kia’s called the Kee. Is it the key to a bright future? If you talk to the firm’s design chief Peter Schreyer it is. That grille is the future look of all Kias. He wants the company’s cars to be...

  • BMW 135i Coupe (2007) review

    Price:  £29,745

    21 October 2007 by Ben Whitworth

    So, is this the ‘One’ that everyone has been waiting for? Very good. The thought of a small, highly focused BMW, with the full M Sport works, powered by one of the finest engines on sale has certainly...

  • Aston Martin DBS (2008) review

    Price:  £160,000

    19 October 2007 by Chris Chilton

    I know Bond drove it last year but what’s all the fuss about? It’s a DB9 with a bodykit isn’t it? Steady on. The DBS is certainly based on the DB9 but then so is the DBR9 racer that won the GT1 class...

  • Renault Laguna Coupe concept (2007) review

    Price:  £26,000

    19 October 2007 by CJ Hubbard

    Ooo, shiny. What is this fine-looking thing? This is – are you ready? – a Renault. Yes, honestly. The company that currently specialises in boring family carry-alls and hardcore hot hatches has...

  • Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione (2007) review

    Price:  £111,000

    17 October 2007 by Gavin Green

    The 8C Competizione? Always thought it was just a concept vehicle. Is it now a proper production car? Well it’s certainly about to go on sale – for a mere £111,000. Alfa is only going to make 500.

  • Vauxhall VXR8 Supercharged (2007) review

    Price:  £48,190

    16 October 2007 by Tim Pollard

    So Vauxhall reckons the VXR8 isn't fast enough? You got it in one. Vauxhall's UK performance arm VXR (sister division to the Continentals' OPC Opel brand) is becoming seemingly more power-crazed by...

  • Ford Verve concept (2007) review

    15 October 2007 by James Foxall

    Ford Verve? Isn’t that the Fiesta replacement? It certainly is, although by the time it goes on sale in November 2008 it’ll probably be called Fiesta again. Whatever the name, the new car will have a...

  • Microcar MC1 (2007) review

    Price:  £6,495

    11 October 2007 by Jonny Smith

    What's this, another weird electricmobile? Weird yes, electric no. It's a petrol-fed, twin-cylinder featherweight city car that claims 65mpg. On paper the vital stats of the Microcar seem to make...

  • Mazda 6 2.0 (2007) review

    10 October 2007 by Steve Moody

    The old Mazda 6 was the acceptable face of repmobility. Will we get more of the same? When the first 6 came out in 2002, it was a genuinely surprising and enjoyable product in the stale upper-medium...

  • Volvo XC60 concept (2007) review

  • Audi A4 3.2 Quattro (2007) review

    Price:  £28,815

    08 October 2007 by Peter Burgess

    This new Audi A4, it looks classier than before... Audi has moved its game on, as indeed it had to. With squarer proportions than the ubiquitous 3-series, this forthcoming A4 looks decidedly more...
