  • Citroen C3 Stop & Start (2007) review

    Price:  £11,795

    26 June 2007 by Ben Oliver

    That’s not the future of green motoring - it’s just a Citroen C3. Don’t be so dismissive. The lengthily titled Citroen C3 1.4i 16v Stop & Start SensoDrive five-door, is very much the present of green...

  • Volvo V70 D5 (2007) review

    Price:  £32,095

    25 June 2007 by Peter Burgess

    Another Volvo Estate. Didn’t the Swedes invent this sector of the market? Listen to Volvo and you’d believe that its estate car stands alongside Coca Cola and Levi jeans as one of the world’s leading...

  • Mercedes C220 CDI Sport (2007) review

    Price:  £28,002

    19 June 2007 by Peter Burgess

    It looks like there’s a major change going on here Certainly is. Gone are the smooth curves of the previous C-class, replaced with something far more edgy and, dare we say it, rather modern. The...

  • Saab 9-3 1.9 TTiD 180 (2007) review

    Price:  £26,495

    18 June 2007 by Richard Aucock

    How new is this 'new' 9-3? Saab has made 2157 changes in facelifting its 3-series rival, rendering the 9-3 almost completely distinct from its Vectra platform. Or so says Saab. The nose is the most...

  • Peugeot 207 SW Outdoor (2007) review

    Price:  £13,275

    15 May 2007 by James Foxall

    Superminis From its name I’m guessing this is a successor to the 206 SW Exactly right. Making an estate version of a supermini might not be a popular pastime for many car companies but Peugeot...

  • Subaru Impreza RB320 review

    Price:  £29,995

    26 April 2007 by Chris Chilton

    Another special edition Impreza. We must be into three figures by now Probably. This one’s the RB320, built as a tribute to the late former WRC champ Richard Burns who died in 2005, hence the RB in...

  • Ford Mondeo 2.0 TDCi (2007) review

    Price:  £17,595

    24 April 2007 by Tim Pollard

    A new Mondeo... isn't that supposed to be a snore-worthy non-event? Definitely not. The very mention of Mondeo might not raise the heartbeat, but this is an important car for Ford. Not only does it...

  • Dodge Avenger 2.0 CRD (2007) review

    21 March 2007 by Kyle Fortune

    Dodge’s European assault continues then? Sure does, after the introduction of the Caliber last year Dodge is now offering us its new Avenger. It’s the Caliber’s big brother, competing in the D-sector,...

  • Mercedes C350 Sport (2007) review

    Price:  £35,577

    12 March 2007 by Richard Aucock

    Seven years since the last, an all-new C-Class. What are the highlights? Mercedes has gone back to basics with the new C. Keen to banish memories of the E-class quality/breakdown/recall debacle, it...

    02 March 2007 by Chris Chilton

    Er, help me out, I’ve been staring at the picture, pen poised, for 20 minutes and I haven’t ringed a single difference See that big air intake under the bumper? See how the ends point upwards instead...

  • Infiniti G35 S (2007) review

    29 January 2007 by Ben Barry

    A G35S what? Infiniti. This halo brand is to Nissan what Lexus is to Toyota – a premium range to take on the might of the upper-crust European competition. Europe will get the Infiniti range in 2008 –...

  • Mercedes E500 facelift (2006) review

    Price:  £47,717

    21 December 2006 by Ben Whitworth

    You’ve used the wrong picture, that’s the old E-class, sort yourselves out! Well, Mercedes calls it the ‘new’ E-class but it’s really a heavily revised version of the model launched four years ago.

  • Skoda Octavia vRS TDi (2006) review

    Price:  £18,570

    21 November 2006 by Chris Chilton

    A diesel? I thought the vRS was Skoda's GTi. It is. The vRS comes with either the 197bhp FSi turbo 2.0-litre from the Golf GTi or now, with this 2.0 common-rail diesel. It’s the newer, more powerful...

    It’s been T5 this and T5 that, I’m pleased to see you’re finally going to tell me about the C30 that I can afford to fuel. We aim to please. Yes, the blown five-cylinder T5 sounds great and certainly...

  • BMW Hydrogen 7 (2006) review

    16 November 2006 by Ben Oliver

    That’s not a green car. It’s a dirty great limo… Yes, it’s a long-wheelbase BMW 7-series with a 6-litre V12 engine. But it runs on liquid hydrogen as well as petrol, emitting virtually no CO2 when...

    15 November 2006 by Chris Chilton

    Does the world need another 3-series variant? There must be millions of them by now. And what’s so special about this one? This is the 325d and it’s designed to plug the gap between the popular...

  • Chrysler Sebring 2.0 CRD (2006) review

    Price:  £18,995

    30 October 2006 by Jed Maxwell

    Chrysler Sebring – that sounds vaguely familiar...? The Sebring has been out in the US since 1998 where it has been a reasonable seller, but hardly set showrooms alight. Even so, that’s more than...

  • BMW 335d Coupe (2006) review

    286bhp, 427lb ft and 1570kgs – quite fast, presumably? Oh yes. BMW points out that the new 335d is the most powerful diesel engine it has sold in the UK and the most powerful six-pot diesel in the...

  • Peugeot 207 GT 150 (2006) review

    Price:  £14,475

    06 October 2006 by Simon Harris

    Why a GT and not a GTi? That’ll happen in 2007. The GTi will share its 175bhp engine with the Mini Cooper S, but that’s several months away, so we should allow the GT with its 150bhp turbocharged...

  • Honda S2000 (2006) review

    Price:  £27,402

    11 September 2006 by Jed Maxwell

    Hasn’t the S2000 been around for ages? It certainly has. It was launched in 1999 but Honda reckons it’s got a few years left in it yet. This is its second face lift (the first came in 2002) and Honda...
