Audi A4: Pound For Pound Is This The Best Car Around?

That’s a fair question and I know what my answer would be. There are of course many Audi A4 variants. Audi do not miss a trick when it comes to offering something for everyone on every model. In this case the car on test is an A4 saloon with a 2.0L TFSI 248bhp (252PS) quattro S-tronic in S-Line trim. It has got the lot. If you check out the options list below I cannot frankly see anything I would like to add, except maybe Audi’s Virtual Cockpit which is the best thing since sliced bread. I would also like to specify a lower price. Continue reading

Do You Really Want Your Teen On The Road?

The stereotypical teen driver is a 17-year-old male who has just passed his test. His parents have enough money to get him his own car. He piles it full of his mates on a Saturday night, drink or drugs may be added to the mix and a tragedy occurs which shatters many young lives and may affect other road users. It is every parent’s nightmare but happens on UK roads every day. This is a stereotypical view and we all know that stereotypes can be both unfair and damaging. However, in this case, there are some statistics to back it up. Continue reading

3 of the Biggest Misconceptions Surrounding Car Insurance in the UK

While automotive insurance may be one of the UK’s most in-demand industries, there is no doubt that it is poised for a major evolution over the course of the next decade and beyond. After all, the emergence of automated cars is inevitable, while the fact that an estimated 90% of all auto mobile accidents are caused by human error means that technological advancement will change the service that insurers deliver for car insurance beyond all recognition in the future.

Peugeot 3008: Car Of The Year?

A while back I complained that many new crossovers and SUV’s all had the same look as if there was a template being passed from manufacturer to manufacturer. Whilst I hold to that to a certain extent I have to admit to being guilty of the sin of over-generalisation because some of the new crop of such cars are uniquely styled: The new Peugeot 3008 featured here is a case in point.

Why It’s Never Been A Better Time To Be A Car Lover!

For some people, a car is little more than a method of getting from one place to another. They treat it as little more than a tool of convenience to help them deal with the day-to-day logistics of going to work, seeing friends, and picking their kids up from school every day. And there’s nothing wrong with that. However, for many other people, cars are so much more than that. Continue reading

The Curse Of Brexit And The British Holiday

Brexit, which is not a proper word, has taken on a life of its own, like Godzilla or the fashion for stocky middle-aged men to wear three-quarter length shorts and thinking it looks appealing. If the EU does at some point begin to fracture – the Poles are being a bit off-message just now – we will likely see variations on this non-word but for now, it is we, the awkward Brits, who are the pariahs of Europe. This does not bode well for our Euro-holidays. Continue reading
