Subaru BRZ – Revised & Improved But No Faster, Alas

The Japanese manufacturer stubbornly refuses to acknowledge the customer desire for more speed from the Subaru BRZ, at least in the UK, although this great little sports car has been revised for 2017. The original was great, this latest version is even better but the downside is there is no more power. This car requires the driver to exercise proper driving skills so if you want cheap thrills go back to the loud n’ brash hot hatch market. That would be a mistake however because this stylish car rewards the effort with a fine madness of its own. Continue reading

About Irritating & Inconsequential Car Advertising

Manufacturer car advertising is always rich in hyperbole, we understand that; but there is a limit. When the latest advertisement for the new Renault JamJar comes on the television the background slurping noise that you may faintly hear in the distance is the sound of my heart sinking. We are asked to believe that this clearly wealthy, attractive yet divorcing couple will swing around in the road and go to their ‘beach house’ – which is in fact a bijou villa somewhere wonderful – for a bit of post-marital nookie. Continue reading

All About Speeding on English and Welsh Roads

Although you’re breaking the law as soon as you edge over the stated speed limit for the road you’re driving on, you have a bit of wiggle room. Almost all police forces give drivers a 10% allowance as well as an extra 2 miles per hour to take speedometer or camera errors into account. Continue reading

Jaguar XE R-Sport 2.0L Diesel – Business As Usual

There are Jaguars for work and there are Jaguars for play. In this case, here’s a car that is the business. The Jaguar XE featured here in R-Sport trim certainly looks the part; the looks are understated yet racy but that’s as far as the performance goes. You see, this model is a diesel and is not designed for high speed travel; it is designed for comfort with matching economy and on that score it certainly delivers. Continue reading

Will Solar-Powered Cars Impact the Auto Industry?

The electric car had some popularity from 1832 up until the 1920s, where it was deemed to no longer be a commercially viable product. Its downfall was due to the availability of fossil fuels, consumer needs to drive longer distances, and also the lack of horsepower. Fast forward to 1997 and Japan releases the world’s first commercially mass-produced hybrid car, the Toyota Prius. Nowadays, electric cars are aplenty and you can pick one up by simply walking into your local dealership. The electric car is a prime example of how consumer commands shift throughout the years, demanding innovation and new ideas from manufacturers. Continue reading
