  • VW Touran 1.9 TDi (2006) review

    Price:  £17,982

    24 November 2006 by Richard Yarrow

    I think 'new' might be stretching the truth a bit. The front lights are clearly new, but what else has changed? In truth, not a great deal. Those lamps have been reshaped to resemble those of the Eos...

  • 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 325d (2006) review

    Price:  £27,885

    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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Land Rover Freelander 2.2 TD4 (2006) review

    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...

  • Seat Altea XL 1.9 TDi (2006) review

    Price:  £15,250

    16 October 2006 by Mike Roberts

    Altea XL. Sounds like a car for the larger person. What’s it about? Not to be too technical it’s basically an Altea with a bigger boot. And that’s it? Well, it’s the same as the Altea up to the...

  • Honda Civic Type S 2.2 CDTi (2006) review

    Price:  £16,567

    11 October 2006 by Chris Chilton

    Looks tasty, what’s it all about? It’s basically a regular Civic that’s raided the Type R’s glam-rock make up box. It’s also the nearest we’ll come to the Type R proper until March 2007 when you’ll be...

  • 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...

  • Citroen C4 Picasso 1.6 HDi (2006) review

    Price:  £16,795

    20 September 2006 by Richard Aucock

    That looks a fancy bit of modern art. Very funny. But you’re right – it’s the latest success from C4/C6 designer Jean-Pierre Ploué. And a crucial new seven-seat compact MPV. Thanks to romping parents,...

  • Renault Espace 2.0dCi 175 (2006) review

    Price:  £33,150

    18 September 2006 by Dimitri Pesin

    This Espace doesn't look very different – what's new? The Espace gets revised diesel engines for 2007, ensuring all now meet the Euro4 emissions standard. Quality takes a step forward, and there are...

  • 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 the...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Peugeot 207 1.6 HDI (2006) review

    Price:  £13,015

    07 August 2006 by Angus Fitton

    Hang on, isn't that a 307? You're not far off. The new 207 doesn't just share the bigger car's styling but also gets tantalisingly close to its proportions too. It's 208mm longer than the 206 it...
