  • Ford Focus 2.0 TDCi Titanium (2007) review

    Price:  £18,345

    04 December 2007 by the CAR road test team

    A facelifted Ford Focus diesel? Is it still fun? In a word, yes. Britain’s bestseller has been under Martin Smith’s scalpel to bring it in line with his ‘kinetic design’. Gone is the slightly mundane...

  • Volvo XC70 D5 (2007) review

    Price:  £31,035

    04 December 2007 by the CAR road test team

    You can't beat a big Volvo estate... Yes, Volvo’s current line-up may run from funky sports hatchback to chunky off-roader, but its core model is the still the V70 big family estate. Since it...

  • Chrysler Grand Voyager TD (2008) review

    Price:  £18,000

    13 November 2007 by James Foxall

    Is this an all-new model then? Yes. Chrysler has lengthened the wheelbase and claims to have made at least 30 major improvements to its popular people carrier. The most important of these is a...

  • Ford Mustang Bullitt (2007) review

    Price:  £31,075

    12 November 2007 by Chris Chilton

    Mr Bullitt, we’ve been expecting you It was inevitable. You can’t build a retro version of America’s favourite sporty car and then ignore the fortieth anniversary of its starring appearance in...

  • Porsche Cayenne GTS (2007) review

    Price:  £54,000

    12 November 2007 by Steve Bennett

    Cayenne GTS? What’s that then? It’s a more sports-biased version of Porsche’s SUV supercar that seems to wind up just about everyone with an opinion, yet sells jolly nicely. Porsche also justifies the...

  • Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT S (2007) review

    Price:  £86,400

    12 November 2007 by Richard Aucock

    Maserati model names confuse me. What’s this Sport GT S all about? According to chief engineer Paul Fickers, it’s the car the Quattroporte always should have been. There are six Quattroporte variants...

  • Subaru Impreza WRX STi review

    Price:  £24,995

    09 November 2007 by Ben Oliver

    Please, please tell me the WRX STi is more impressive than the standard Impreza... It is, though the naturally aspirated 2.0-litre Scooby isn’t without merit. It provides a decent base for the WRX...

  • Cadillac CTS 3.6 V6 (2007) review

    Price:  £28,000

    07 November 2007 by Richard Aucock

    What’s this? A Cadillac I like the look of? What’s going on? Strange things indeed. Oh-so-US Cadillac has long spoken of being a BMW alternative, offering look-at-me impact for less shy and retiring...

  • BMW 330d M-Sport (2007) review

    Price:  £33,095

    06 November 2007 by Steve Prentice

    Admit it, it’s an oil-burner in a sports jacket … why fool yourself? Who said diesels can’t be nippy? You’ve not noticed a diesel’s won Le Mans? This 330d is an unashamedly rapid thing. With 231bhp...

  • Mazda 2 1.3 TS2 (2007) review

    Price:  £9,999

    06 November 2007 by David Motton

    Hmm, a new Mazda 2. The old car was pretty dull, wasn’t it? Yes, but the new 2 is different. Out goes the frumpy, MPV-like styling of the previous model to be replaced by something altogether more...

  • 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

    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

    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...
