  • Audi A4 Avant 2.0 TDi S-line (2008) review

    Price:  £29,250

    03 April 2008 by Dan Trent

    The Audi A4 Avant exists because not everyone wants an SUV and, while BMW’s 3-series has the ‘medium premium’ saloon market sewn up, when it comes to wagons Audi rules the roost. And with this Avant...

  • Audi RS6 Avant (2008) review

    Price:  £77,625

    29 January 2008 by Ben Barry

    Another performance car for the mid-life crisis, then? Harsh. The Audi RS6 carries on what the original car started back in 2002: it’s an all-wheel drive large family car – the estate goes on sale...

    Price:  £21,995

    21 January 2008 by Dan Trent

    A quiet storm has been brewing in the countryside. With customers torn between life long brand loyalty and the ever increasing cost of fuel Subaru’s dealerships have been fielding increasingly...

  • Renault Laguna Sport Tourer 2.0 dCi 175 Dynamique S (2008) review

    Price:  £21,400

    15 January 2008 by James Foxall

    Renault’s new Laguna hasn’t impressed us yet. Purposively conservative looks, a slightly cramped interior, and a drive that can’t touch that of the Mondeo all count against it. But maybe the Sport...

  • Skoda Fabia Estate 1.9 TDi front three-quarter

    Skoda Fabia Estate 1.9 TDi (2007) review

    Price:  £12,615

    11 December 2007 by Christopher Hubbard

    We know you can barely contain your excitement at the prospect of a new Fabia Estate, so we'll get right down to business. The latest Fabia supermini is a fine and fun little thing, and the old Fabia...

  • Volvo XC70 D5 (2007) review

    Price:  £31,035

    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...

  • Mini Clubman (2007) review

    Price:  £17,210

    07 September 2007 by Tim Pollard

    The new Mini Clubman: one weird-looking car It sure is. Devoted fans of all things Mini – and there have been more than a million buyers since BMW first unleashed its lesson in retro pastiche in July...

  • Kia Ceed SW 1.6 CRDi (2007) review

    Price:  £13,745

    28 August 2007 by David Motton

    What’s this, an estate version of the Kia Ceed hatchback? Yep, but it’s called SW. Sounds a bit more aspirational than plain old estate, you see. The Ceed hatchback isn’t a bad starting point. It was...

  • BMW M5 Touring (2007) review

    Price:  £67,725

    08 August 2007 by Ged Maxwell

    An M5 with a massive boot - sounds win-win to me. It is, almost. The anomalous M5 Touring is M-division chalk to the M6 convertible's cheese. Both have the same 500bhp V10, yet that the M5 looks...

  • VW Golf Estate 2.0 TDi (2007) review

    Price:  £17,862

    11 May 2007 by Georg Kacher

    Volkswagen took their time unleashing this handsome devil Yes, the previous VW management dithered, discussed and delayed the project until it was almost past its sell-by date. In July 2007, two full...

  • Alfa Romeo 159 Sportwagon 3.2 V6 (2007) review

    Price:  £29,550

    28 July 2006 by Chris Chilton

    159? Looks like a facelifted 156? If that were true it would be the worst facelift since Burt Reynolds' went Asian last year. Actaully it's not unattractive, it's just that the 156 was so gorgeous.
