  • 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...

    27 October 2006 by Chris Chilton

    The overview This is Freelander 2, an all-new British-built small premium off-roader, not to mention the successor to the car that kicked off the whole market for such cars. The final Land Rover...

  • Dodge Nitro 3.7 SXT (2006) review

    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...

  • Range Rover TDV8 (2006) review

    Price:  £55,100

    14 September 2006 by Phil McNamara

    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...

  • BMW X3 3.0sd (2006) review

    Price:  £37,150

    11 September 2006 by Angus Fitton

    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...

  • Jeep Wrangler 3.8 (2006) review

    Price:  £22,595

    30 August 2006 by James Foxall

    Jeep's most agricultural model looks the same as ever. Has anything changed? Jeep's design boffins confusingly tell you that the new Wrangler is exactly the same but totally different to the previous...

  • Cadillac SRX (2006) review

    Price:  £27,995

    25 August 2006 by Angus Fitton

    Hmmm, this looks like the dictionary definition of a Yank tank... The SRX is nearly as long as a Range Rover and weighs well over two tonnes, so it's hardly compact. But you ain't seen nothing yet.

  • Chevrolet Captiva 2.0d LT (2006) review

    Price:  £19,995

    14 August 2006 by Angus Fitton

    This is no rebadged Daewoo, unlike the other European Chevys... Spot on. The new Captiva is the first all-new model since GM bought up Daewoo and relaunched it under the Chevrolet brand. In a model...

  • Jeep Grand Cherokee 6.1 SRT-8 (2006) review

    Price:  £41,295

    10 August 2006 by Ben Whitworth

    A Grand Cherokee at the 'Ring? Surely a fish a long way from its water… Yes, but this is the grandest of Grand Cherokees, the SRT-8. The initials stand for the skunkworks that fettled it, Chrysler's...

    02 August 2006 by Georg Kacher

    I'm imagining loads of huge new Benzes appearing at random, a different one wherever I look… Calm down. Deep breath. You're not hallucinating - there really are new Mercs every which way at the...

  • Porsche Cayenne Turbo S (2006) review

    Price:  £81,565

    24 July 2006 by Georg Kacher

    The Porsche Cayenne Turbo, doyen of the noveau riche and Premiership footballers. What's new about this? This is no 'ordinary' Cayenne Turbo, not that there's much ordinary about a 444bhp SUV that...
