  • Audi Q7 4.2 TDi (2007) review

    Price:  £50,090

    10 May 2007 by Danny Cobbs

    Is this 4.2-litre diesel Q7 just playing another part in the Audi master plan for world dominance? When you’ve spent a gazillion euros developing the world’s most powerful V8 diesel engine it would...

  • Land Rover Defender 90 (2007) review

    Price:  £21,380

    26 March 2007 by Gavin Green

    A new Defender! Though the old girl still looks much the same as she did 60 years ago You’re right – the Defender traces its ancestry back to 1948 and remains the granddaddy of off-roaders, the Morgan...

  • Jeep Compass 2.0 CRD Limited manual (2007) review

    Price:  £19,010

    02 March 2007 by Jed Maxwell

    Is this the much vaunted ‘Jeep for ladies’ then? Well sort of. This is Jeep’s first ‘compact sport utility’ and it’s hoping the softer more modern lines will appeal to drivers who want a Jeep but...

  • Skoda Octavia Scout 2.0 review

    Price:  £19,670

    27 February 2007 by James Foxall

    Skoda Octavia Scout: sounds a bit Dib Dib Dib? It’s Skoda’s way of describing mildly tweaked ‘off-road’ versions of its cars. With this model, it’s taken the Octavia 4x4 estate and made it longer,...

  • Porsche Cayenne 3.6 V6 (2007) review

    Price:  £37,100

    27 January 2007 by Tim Pollard

    New Porsche Cayenne: the lowdown Love it or loathe it, the Cayenne has done wonders for Porsche's profitability. Purists can argue all day long that it diluted the brand DNA with all those common VW...

  • Cadillac Escalade CAR (2007) review

    Price:  £46,895

    26 January 2007 by Ben Whitworth

    Ah, the Escalade. Is this American bruiser about to give Euro rivals like the Range Rover Sport, X5, M-class and Q7 a bit of a hiding? In a word, no. Or more accurately, it doesn’t have a snowball’s...

  • Hummer H3 3.7 (2007) review

    Price:  £31,000

    22 January 2007 by Ben Whitworth

    Finally, a Hummer for the UK – was it worth the wait? Yes, the Hummer H3 is finally here, and depending on your sense of taste, you’ll either be rejoicing or rolling in the aisles. The H3 is the...

  • Subaru B9 Tribeca 3.0 (2006) review

    Price:  £29,097

    15 December 2006 by Chris Chilton

    Is this the ugliest car on sale? I like a man who gets straight to the point. The Tribeca’s certainly an acquired taste - it’s difficult to look at either end without wanting to vomit. But at least...

  • Mitsubishi Shogun (2007) review

    Price:  £22,999

    14 December 2006 by Ben Whitworth

    New Shogun? Are you sure? With its faux-rally flared wheelarches, stubby nose complete with diamond-studded ‘Mount Fuji’ nose and hatch-mounted spare wheel, this new fourth-generation Shogun may look...

    12 December 2006 by Ben Whitworth

    Ah yes, the Outlander, aka the C-Crosser and 4007… Yes indeed. Mitsubishi’s new Outlander, which arrives in the UK next March, is the perfect example of the interwoven intricacies of the current...

    Price:  £14,295

    27 November 2006 by Chris Chilton

    You're a bit slow off the mark aren't you? This thing's been on sale for months. Yes, well, we've put off driving it for as long as humanly possible. Memories of the old car you see; some of us are...

  • Volvo XC90 SE Sport 3.2 (2006) review

    Price:  £38,278

    24 November 2006 by Chris Chilton

    Looks like Volvo’s succumbed and added some attitude to the XC90 That’s right, this new pumped up SE Sport is clearly aimed at people who might have found the XC90 a bit too reserved and instead...

  • Honda CR-V 2.2 CDTi (2006) review

    Price:  £20,017

    17 November 2006 by Jed Maxwell

    The castrati of SUVs is back, eh? Steady. The CR-V isn’t the most macho of off-roaders but that hasn’t stopped it being popular. In fact it’s been the market leader for the past few years and given...

  • BMW X5 3.0d (2006) review

    Price:  £40,450

    13 November 2006 by Richard Aucock

    Just what the world needs, another huge off-roader. That’s it, jump on the SUV-hate bandwagon. But before you do you might want to know that X5 II is safer, more efficient and even better to drive.

  • Jeep Wrangler 2.8 CRD (2006) review

    Price:  £17,995

    03 November 2006 by Jed Maxwell

    You said this was a new Jeep Wrangler, but it looks exactly the same. Yes, we’re talking evolution rather than revolution for the new Wrangler. But you can’t blame Jeep for that. On the other side of...

    Price:  £23,590

    02 October 2006 by Jed Maxwell

    Dodge Nitro? Sounds pretty explosive. What’s it all about? It’s a Land Rover Freelander-sized SUV designed to appeal to the macho man that Chrysler believe is lurking in every buyer. So it’s a pretty...

  • Mercedes GL420 CDI (2006) review

    Price:  £63,872

    26 September 2006 by Nathan Millward

    Another over-inflated luxury 4x4? Fair point. There is a whiff of Groundhog Day about the GL-Class but with seven seats, a host of new engines and comfort to match a luxury saloon, it could be worth...

    Looks the same to me – what's new about this Range Rover? Land Rover keeps tinkering with the Range Rover, in a bid to maintain its spot as the pinnacle of SUVs. It's an extensive overhaul for...

    I'm stumped - what's new? You're not the only one - apparently this is the revised BMW X3. Although if you can spot all the differences between the pre- and post-facelift cars you really should get...
