The large panel van sector has a new arrival in the shape of the MAN TGE. German company MAN Truck & Bus is an established truck manufacturer that today is part of the Volkswagen Group, but the arrival of the TGE marks its first venture […]

Subaru XV review

Subaru XV review

With an unconventional approach to powertrain and transmission choices, the XV strikes a different tone on the road to its numerous rivals. The range topping 2.0-litre boxer unit with 154bhp and CVT transmission combination is smooth at lower speeds, but the lack of torque means […]

Volvo V60 review

Volvo V60 review

Volvo has taken a different approach to rivals with the V60. Rather than go chasing the driving dynamics of the BMW 3 Series, the V60 takes a more relaxed approach. It’s quiet, comfortable and relaxed, riding over the Spanish roads of our test drive well, […]

Hyundai i30 N review

Hyundai i30 N review

Most Hyundais offer acceptable driving dynamics, but they don’t stand out when compared to class leaders. The i30 N is different. The brand’s chassis engineers have done an excellent job in transforming an unengaging family hatchback into a sharp and enjoyable small performance car. From […]
