  • Renault Koleos Privilège dCi 175 (2008) review

    Price:  £24,695

    02 May 2008 by Christopher Hubbard

    When the Renault Koleos was unveiled at the Geneva motor show the original press information claimed that this was an SUV that 'handles like a hatchback'. But those words have disappeared...

  • Nissan Murano (2008) review

    Price:  £32,000

    15 April 2008 by Kyle Fortune

    Nissan’s Murano is an odd thing. Since late 2004 only around 1000 of them have made it to the UK each year, but for all its scarcity it was something you wouldn't forget when you did see one. A big...

  • Ford Kuga 2.0 TDCi (2008) review

    Price:  £22,500

    09 April 2008 by Adam Towler

    The Kuga's rivals are nearly collecting their goody bags at the small crossover party, but Ford is only just arriving in its new designer suit. Has the Blue Oval missed the boat? The market might...

  • BMW X6 XDrive 35d (2008) review

    Price:  £44,145

    05 April 2008 by Richard Aucock

    We’ve heard of niches, but come on – an SUV coupe? Sounds a bit roast beef with ice cream to us. But from June 2008, that’s what BMW has in store. The X6 is the latest addition to the maker’s SUV...

  • Land Rover Discovery TDV6 HSE (2008) review

    Price:  £44,535

    18 February 2008 by Ben Pulman

    What's the best multi-purpose vehicle on sale today? You'll struggle to find a better one than the Land Rover Discovery - an amazing jack of all trades, if ever we've seen one. It can go almost...

  • Toyota Land Cruiser V8 TD (2008) review

    Price:  £55,995

    17 January 2008 by Richard Aucock

    Toyota's Land Cruiser. Since 1954 and with five million made, it’s gone on to be the world’s best-selling SUV. The Range Rover’s an upstart compared to this, and Toyota’s world domination started with...

  • Jeep Cherokee Limited 2.8D (2007) review

    Price:  £25,595

    04 December 2007 by the CAR road test team

    What, another new Jeep? Yup. Sitting alongside Wrangler, Patriot, Compass, Grand Cherokee and Commander there’s now the all-new Cherokee. It fits into the range between Patriot/Compass and Grand...

  • 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,...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Peugeot 4007 (2007) review

    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...

  • Vauxhall Antara 2.0 TDi (2007) review

    Price:  £24,095

    01 August 2007 by Ben Pulman

    A Vauxhall 4x4 is all well and good, but aren’t they a bit late to the party? Ignoring all the environemtal isssues for a moment, Luton is indeed very late to the segment – if you discount the...

  • Lexus RX400h (2007) review

    Price:  £36,415

    31 July 2007 by Ben Oliver

    It’s the one SUV Red Ken can’t object to… Not quite. Full credit to Lexus for making the RX400h the first car in both the luxury and SUV sectors to have a hybrid powertrain; its impressive CO2 claim...

  • Mazda CX-7 2.3 (2007) review

    20 July 2007 by Kyle Fortune

    Another SUV? Yep, in these tree-hugging planet worrying times Mazda has added another SUV choice to the market. And why shouldn’t they, SUV sales aren’t in quite the freefall some people would have...

  • VW Touareg V10 TDi (2007) review

    Price:  £54,867

    03 July 2007 by Steve Prentice

    The new VW Touareg? What's different? Yes, true, the new-look front end is more of a tweak than a full redesign, but VW has changed 2300 individual parts in the new Touareg, including brakes,...

  • Jeep Patriot 2.0 CRD (2007) review

    02 July 2007 by Christopher Hubbard

    The Jeep Patriot? I'm whistling the Star-Spangled Banner already... The name ain't exactly subtle, is it? And the odd names don't end there; the Patriot's new 4x4 system is called the 'Freedom Drive...

    28 June 2007 by Richard Aucock

    Oh lord, not another modern-day Matra Rancho. Ah – immediately, you’ve spotted Seat’s biggest problem with the Altea Freetrack. This is a crossover – part MPV, part 4x4. And, with its ‘family car...

  • Nissan X-Trail 2.0 dCi (2007) review

    Price:  £20,395

    24 May 2007 by Daniel Harrison

    Is Nissan pulling a fast one? This looks the same as the old X-Trail It’s a dead ringer for the one that's just been discontinued, isn’t it? Incredibly, it’s totally new, right down to the engines.
