    Renault Grand Modus 1.2 TCE 100 (2007) review

    Price:  £11,850

    14 December 2007 by Peter Burgess

    You have to hand it to Renault. After the success of the original Espace, it didn’t sit on its laurels. The Scenic that followed had an even greater impact and had the kudos of being a truly original...

  • Renault Clio Sport Tourer 1.5 dCi (2007) review

    Price:  £14,320

    14 December 2007 by Peter Burgess

    The common sense answer to needing a supermini with more room is to buy a Megane-sized hatchback. And the Megane is an apt example here. Not only is it from Renault, it’s sufficiently dimensionally...

    14 December 2007 by the CAR road test team

    Price:  £31,000

    11 December 2007 by the CAR road test team

    Who are they trying to kid? Will Europeans really consider a premium car built by Nissan? Infiniti arrives in Europe in 2008 and we’re first to drive the new G37 Coupe to find out if it cuts the...

  • Vauxhall Corsa 1.6 SRi front

    Vauxhall Corsa 1.6 SRi (2007) review

    Price:  £13,625

    11 December 2007 by Richard Aucock

    Vauxhall has revived the boy racer’s machine of choice. But rather than Nova SR, it's now called Corsa SRi, and you can even get a diesel. But we've got the turbocharged car on test, with a detuned...

  • Lotus Exige S Performance Pack (2007) review

    Price:  £37,550

    04 December 2007 by the CAR road test team

    What? Another new Exige? Yes indeed, but don’t be expecting anything too groundbreaking: this is evolution over revolution. Essentially we’re talking 2008 model year changes here and the addition of...

  • Kia Sportage FCEV (2007) review

    04 December 2007 by the CAR road test team

    What is a FCEV? It stands for Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle, and this Sportage SUV is Kia’s latest attempt at a hydrogen-powered car. This technology has been the talk of the industry for the last decade...

    04 December 2007 by the CAR road test team

    You’re driving Darth Vader’s car! Yes, Lamborghini’s outrageous Reventon is unlike anything else we’ve seen. Unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show last month, the Reventon is about the meanest, baddest...

    Price:  £6,995

    04 December 2007 by the CAR road test team

    Hmm. It looks a bit better than the old car It does, doesn’t it? Out goes the old cat’s arse grille, to be replaced with something altogether neater. There are new bumpers front and rear, a new...

  • Kia Sportage 2.0 CRDi XE (2007) review

    Price:  £16,195

    04 December 2007 by the CAR road test team

    The Sportage is new, is it? Doesn’t look it... It’s a facelift rather than an all-new car, and we’re talking nip and tuck rather than major surgery. Park the old and new models next to each other,...

    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...

    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...

  • 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...
