Audi SQ5 – The Perfect Family And Driver Compromise

With so many Audi variants you could picture herds of them sweeping majestically across the plain. Yet they are all different. Just like the part-performance car, part-family-ready SUV that is the Audi SQ5. It’s already a firm UK favourite on the strength of its impressively well-rounded appeal. From this week though, its all-new successor retakes its rightful place at the head of the Q5 range offering an even more concentrated dose of that successful formula. Continue reading

Nissan X-Trail – A Worthy SUV Contender

Nissan X-Trail is not a silly or meaningless name for a car – unlike some I could mention. It conjures up an image of the great outdoors and of rugged exploration. The thing is, like almost every other car in these lifestyle days, or so it seems to me, the Nissan is now softer in its approach to the SUV market. Continue reading

Motoring Money: Cars That Hold Their Value

It is often said that buying a car can be one of the most expensive lifetime purchases with the obvious exception of your house. Unlike a house, cars will suffer value depreciation quickly so new or used car buyers will want to try and lay hands on a vehicle that will still be worth as much as possible when it comes time to sell it on.

Introducing The New Skoda Kodiaq Scout

With a new Yeti on the way (and I still have reservations about the changes) Skoda continues its campaign in the SUV segment. With the Skoda Kodiaq Scout, the Czech car manufacturer will present a new model variant at the Geneva International Motor Show from the 7th to 19th March this year. Continue reading

Two New Subaru Cars Announced

As I’ve mentioned before, I like a Subaru. They may not be trendy but they are dependable, rugged and well made. Now, Subaru have been pleased to announce that an all-new Subaru XV will make its global debut at the this year’s Geneva International Motor Show to be held in Switzerland from the 7th to the 19th of March.

Introducing The New Vauxhall Crossland X Crossover

Whether or not the world needs yet another funky crossover in this ‘burgeoning sector’ is a matter of opinion. Nevertheless here is Vauxhall’s latest offering, the Crossland X. The vehicle is crisp and compact, say the company, on the outside and spacious and flexible on the inside, with unique two-tone paintwork and SUV-styling. Continue reading

Kia Sportage Wins Hearts And Minds

With a steady October 2016 for car sales in the UK, the Kia Sportage remains a strong seller for the brand. The tested model – fourth generation – has seen a continued rise in sales since going on sale in February this year with over 31,400 sold since launch and 3,471 sold in October. Kia is showing a near fourteen per cent rise on 2015 figures and with good reason. This is a very good car. Continue reading

Suzuki Jimny: Go Tell The Spartans

I love the Suzuki Jimny. It is not a car that follows fads or trends. It does its own thing in its own time. It will not be hurried but will get on with job when required. It’s motto is, ‘I am what I am and that’s all that I am’. It does not assume airs and graces. It is an honest car. It is anti-fashion. Continue reading

Audi RSQ3 – Pocket-Sized Performance

If Audi see the tiniest gap in the car market they clearly feel compelled to fill it. Buyers of the more enthusiastic style of small hatch are already catered for by the German brand’s brilliant hot pocket rocket, the RS3. Thus it seems to me that to make, effectively, a taller version of the same thing seems wilfully pointless. So why do I love the Audi RSQ3 Performance so? Continue reading
