New Kia Niro Hybrid 2019 review

New Kia Niro Hybrid 2019 review

The Koreans, for whatever reason, don’t conform to the car industry’s standardised four-year product cycles. So, just three years after it launched, we find ourselves sat in the driver’s seat of a refreshed Kia Niro. Revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in the spring, the […]

New Mitsubishi L200 2019 review

New Mitsubishi L200 2019 review

The UK is Europe’s largest pick-up market. It’s a fact not lost on Mitsubishi; around one in every three vehicles the Japanese marque sells in Britain is an L200. Striding through its 40th year on sale, a new version enters the fray – the sixth-generation […]

New BMW 330e 2019 review

New BMW 330e 2019 review

Could the BMW 330e be the new 3 Series of choice? That’ll depend largely on your needs, of course, but remove any preconceptions about what this kind of car should be and you’re left with a dynamic, engaging sports saloon that’s capable of up to 41 miles on electric […]

New Ford Fiesta ST M225 2019 review

New Ford Fiesta ST M225 2019 review

The current Ford Fiesta ST is already a very convincing hot hatchback; we know this having run one on our long-term test fleet earlier in the year. We liked it so much that at the time we thought it hard to improve upon for all-round […]

New Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid prototype review

Say hello to the most powerful SUV to ever wear the Porsche badge: the 671bhp, 900Nm, two and a half tonne Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid. It pushes Porsche’s second biggest seller into an entirely new performance envelope, giving it the punch to compete directly with […]

New Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus 2019 review

Much has been written about the Tesla Model 3 already – in the car’s troubled gestation few might have believed Tesla could turn out such a world-beater, but it has. We’ve already driven the Performance and Long Range versions of the Model 3, but now it’s the turn […]

New Audi A6 Allroad 2019 review

To many people, the outgoing Audi A6 Allroad was a car for buyers who couldn’t decide whether they wanted an estate or an SUV. Its makers said that it offered the best of both worlds, while others thought it was a jack of all trades […]

New Audi Q7 facelift 2019 review

New Audi Q7 facelift 2019 review

We’ve already driven the latest Audi Q7 in 50 TDI V6 diesel form, but the more powerful model in the standard range is the new 3.0-litre V6 petrol, badged 55 TFSI – the first time that mild-hybrid petrol power has made it under the bonnet […]

New 2019 Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 S review

New 2019 Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 S review

Over £50,000 is a lot to pay for a hot hatch, even one as good as the new Mercedes-AMG A 45 S. But if you’re willing to part with a further £2,000 (est), you can upgrade to the more elegant CLA 45 S – and […]
