Make Your Jeep Rugged With Tire And Wheel Combo Packages

If you own a Jeep, then you know that part of the appeal of your ride is the fact that you can go practically anywhere.

Skoda Kodiaq: Space & Practicality

Vehicles in the SUV class, whilst being very popular, are not generally designed to make an emphatic statement. Certainly they are versatile but the nature of the design means they all tend to look alike. Once in a while though a brand will pull off a real success story and the Skoda Kodiaq is a case in point. It is a big, bold shape that maximises the potential of a vehicle in this sector. It is Skoda’s first attempt at a seven-seat car and they have hit the bulls-eye. Continue reading

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

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.

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
