  • Renault Megane Coupe Concept (2008) review

    Price:  £16,500

    31 March 2008 by Ged Maxwell

    Even Renault people admit the current Megane is something of a Marmite car: you either love it or hate it. But that could be about to change as Renault reveals a replacement this...

  • Ford C-Max 2.0 TDCi Titanium (2008) review

    Price:  £19,320

    28 March 2008 by Alex Grant

    Ford’s C-Max has always looked a little dowdy and functional when compared to its sister S-Max. The latter has shrugged off its size with sharp angles and a car-like drive, and shot off forecourts as...

  • Ford Ka and SportKa (2008) review

    Price:  £7,095

    19 March 2008 by Colin Overland

    The Ford Ka was one of the cars that started Ford's renaissance. So the Blue Oval's business problems shouldn’t distract attention from the fact that most of Ford's current European...

    Price:  £150,000

    19 March 2008 by Nick Trott

    Aston Martin's V12 Vantage RS. Big engine, little car. It’s a concept many of the great performance cars have employed. Take a powerful engine from your biggest car and stuff it into your smallest car...

  • Lotus Low CO2 test car (2008): first ride review

    18 March 2008 by Ben Pulman

    Lotus is a name you associate with sports cars from Norfolk. And in our eco-conscious times the light weight of the Elise et al makes Hethel's cars an increasingly environmentally friendly proposition...

    17 March 2008 by Jonny Smith

    For when (if?) a 530bhp supercharged Vauxhall VXR8 isn’t enough, UK V8 gurus Wortec bring you this 600+ bhp 600 lb ft monster; the Carbon Edition. Let the tyre torture begin… This VXR8 Carbon...

  • BMW 730Ld SE (2008) review

    Price:  £54,550

    13 March 2008 by Glen Waddington

    Big sports saloon or limo? Actually, the long-wheelbase BMW 7-series aims towards the genuine limo class. And it's huge. Huge enough to make you wonder if a 3.0-litre turbodiesel could ever be enough...

  • Think City (2008) CAR Review

    Price:  £14,000

    12 March 2008 by Nick Gibbs

    The Think City goes on sale at the end of 2008 with the ability to drive over 100 miles on one charge and hit 60mph. It also looks, steers and, so we’re promised, crashes like a modern city car. If it...

  • Mercedes SL63 AMG (2008) review

    Price:  £94,000

    09 March 2008 by Chris Chilton

    Mercedes’ SL gets a new face for 2008 but there’s far more to the SL63 AMG than simple cosmetic surgery. As the name suggests, the big Benz sports car finally adopts the naturally aspirated V8...

  • Corvette C6 (2008) review

    Price:  £45,995

    27 February 2008 by Glen Waddington

    GM sees the Corvette as a genuine Porsche 911 rival, so much so that it claims to have benchmarked this lightly revised version of the sixth-generation car directly against it. The 911. Yes, you read...

  • Chevrolet Aveo 1.2 (2008) review

    Price:  £7,500

    26 February 2008 by Glen Waddington

    The Chevrolet Aveo might sound like a new model, and even looks like it at first glance. But the Aveo is really a facelifted Kalos, and the name is taken from the booted saloon version that was sold...

  • Saab 9-3 Turbo X (2008) and Aero XWD (2008) review

    Price:  £32,495

    25 February 2008 by Glen Waddington

    Saab's been a bit cash-starved for a while, so the 9-3 Turbo X is the first new product from GM's Swedish outpost for some time. Don't get too excited: it's not a brand new car. But its advanced...

    22 February 2008 by Glen Waddington

    Gone is the felled phonebox look of the old Agila. Here is the newest, smallest member of Vauxhall’s ‘monocab’ family, slotting below the Meriva and Zafira and offering a budget-conscious,...

    19 February 2008 by the CAR road test team

    The A3 has been with us since 1996, while the second-generation model arrived back in 2003. Yet this is the first time a cabriolet has been offered, and it’s incredibly late in the model cycle. The...

    19 February 2008 by Tim Pollard

    It’s a sign of the times at Gaydon that Aston Martin has produced three new models since it walked away from Ford ownership in 2007. Sounds impressive until you realise that all of them are special...

    Honda’s S2000 is a curious car. Tucked inside that pretty, pointy body are all the ingredients to make it one of the finest sports cars on sale today; ballistic high revving engine, front-engine/rear...

  • Farbio GTS (2008) review

    Price:  £59,925

    12 February 2008 by Dan Trent

    The Farbio GTS is a dream come true. Whether childhood doodlings or merely idle musing, who among us hasn’t harboured dreams of building the ultimate supercar. It would have 2000bhp! Eight turbos!...
