  • 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

    Price:  £16,630

    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

    09 October 2007 by James Foxall

    Volvo already has a couple of off-roaders. What does it need another one for? The Swedes claim that people who want to do off-roady things like driving down dirt tracks and towing horseboxes will go...

  • 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...

  • Mitsubishi i-EV (2007) review

    05 October 2007 by Ben Oliver

    Just another pie-in-the-sky electric concept car, right? Wrong, for two reasons. Firstly, we’ve driven it: CAR Online is the first to get behind the wheel of the Mitsubishi i-EV. Second, Mitsubishi...

  • Bowler Nemesis CAR (2007) review

    Price:  £80,000

    05 October 2007 by Dan Sherwood

    What’s this? It looks like a Range Rover Sport on steroids! Well, essentially it is. However, there’s much more to the Bowler Nemesis than its humble Range Rover DNA. Let me explain. British off-road...

  • Ford Transit SportVan 2.2 TDCi (2007) review

    Price:  £19,526

    01 October 2007 by Ben Pulman

    Er, it’s CAR magazine, not What Van? magazine… We know, but allow us this indulgence. Well not indulgence, but vans are always great fun, and no van is more fun than this, the SportVan. Ignore the...

  • Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X (2007) review

    Price:  £35,000

    01 October 2007 by Ben Oliver

    So this is the tenth new version of the Evo – why should I still take any notice? Sure, some previous new Evos had differences that only its diehard fans could spot or cared about. Not this time. The...

  • Porsche 911 GT2 (2008) review

    Price:  £131,070

    28 September 2007 by Georg Kacher

    Another yawnworthy 911? Or a yee-hah one? Definitely the latter. 911 Turbo not hard enough? Then how about removing the four-wheel drive, sir? Want to smash the magical 200mph barrier? Soak in the...

  • Infiniti G37 Coupe Sport (2007) review

    27 September 2007 by Ben Barry

    An Infiniti G37? Isn’t that just a posh Nissan 350Z? Yes and no. A lot of the G37’s basics are 350Z-derived, but this is far more than just badge engineering – the Infiniti is a very different beast...

  • Fiat Grande Punto Abarth (2007) review

    Price:  £13,000

    27 September 2007 by Simon Harris

    Abarth? Am I right in thinking the last time I saw that name it was on a Fiat Stilo? Wash your mouth out! We don’t talk about that. Abarth has now been launched as a new brand in the Fiat stable,...

  • Peugeot Expert Tepee (2007) review

    Price:  £22,557

    26 September 2007 by Tim Pollard

    The Tepee? Has Peugeot hung out with Skoda for too long? Too many scout jokes for my liking! Yes, yes. Ignore the silly name, and you have another of the growing breed of vans being geared up for...

  • Ferrari 430 Scuderia (2007) review

    Price:  £172,500

    25 September 2007 by Ben Barry

    So you’ve driven the Ferrari 430 Scuderia. Remind me, what is it? The Scuderia is essentially a pared back and re-focused Ferrari F430. Scuderia means team in Italian and, for Italian car fans, the...

  • VW Tiguan 2.0 TDi (2007) review

    Price:  £20,500

    24 September 2007 by Georg Kacher

    Why is VW so late to the 4x4 party? Blame management, complicated model cycles and just about every other excuse under the sun. And speaking of the sun, those countries from the land of the rising sun...

    Price:  £22,790

    21 September 2007 by Tim Pollard

    Another 4x4? Just what the world needs... Are the Europeans displaying poor timing by jumping on the 4x4 bandwagon just as the environmental question is ratcheting up to new heights? Perhaps, but...
