Impressions Of The SEAT Ateca

I sometimes grumble about the automotive crossover sector. You may have noticed. The SEAT Ateca, the subject of today’s review, won a ‘Crossover of the Year’ award in 2017 but, in my view, to call it a ‘crossover’ does it a disservice. It’s better than that. I rate it as a proper SUV, especially as featured here with all-wheel drive (optional). In fact, last year the car garnered 53 distinctions overall; that’s the true seal of approval. In short, it’s a hit. Continue reading

Is There Still A Reason For Owning An SUV?

When the concept of the Sports Utility Vehicle, or SUV as they have become known, was first introduced it implied a certain off-road ruggedness. With four-wheel drive they seemed to suggest the pursuit of The Great Outdoors. Continue reading

Many areas have already experienced ice and even snow already this winter, and it’s now that people should be listening.

Citroen C3 Is A Real Surprise

This pleases me. I like a car that, whilst competing deep within the supermini sector, offers a little bit of flair and individuality that sets it apart. Such is the case with the Citroen C3 you see here, loaned to me in the top-specification Flair trim (see below). Admittedly I’m biased, being a fan of the brand and indeed a Citroen owner but this car has real merit in my opinion. Continue reading

There are plenty of careless or couldn’t care less drivers on our highways and, although we hear less about it these days, that nasty ‘cash for crash’ scam has not gone away. Criminals are being ever more inventive as to how they think they can con us out of insurance money. That’s why dashboard or windscreen mounted cameras are a great idea. The dashcam has come of age.
