  • 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...

  • Mazda CX-7 2.3 (2007) review

    Price:  £23,960

    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

    Price:  £19,010

    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...

  • Seat Altea Freetrack 4 2.0 TDi (2007) review

    Price:  £21,395

    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.

  • 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,...

    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...

    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...
