I Have No Plans To Buy Another Car

As a motoring writer I am privileged to have regular access to many cars from many manufacturers. Almost every week that passes will find me in a different motor with a few other one day drives thrown into the equation. I can see that it is in some ways an enviable position to be in and for that I am grateful; but this good fortune is not the reason why I have no plans to buy another car. Continue reading

The New (Citroen) DS5 – C’est Magnifique.

I know I’ve said it before, but I like a Citroen. In fact, I own one and I’m very happy with it so I’m always pleased to receive them for evaluation. When Citroen added the DS sub-brand a few years ago it was, they said, designed to “express French style and luxury with beautiful details and exceptional quality”.

Citroen Grand Picasso – Light, Bright and Versatile

It’s a known fact that I like Citroen cars. Indeed, I even own one, but sadly it doesn’t get used much because of all the visiting motors taking up my time. To cheer it up during its lonely vigil, this last week saw the arrival of it’s bigger, smarter brother, the seven-seat Grand Picasso – in this case sporting a range-topping Exclusive+ trim pack.

New Citroens At The Festival Of Speed

cit2As regular readers will know, I am a great fan of Citroen cars. For almost three years now a Citroen C1 has been a part of the DriveWrite fleet and I’m very happy with it – it’s automotive fun. Come to think of it, the C1 is the DriveWrite fleet right now – the rest being made up from excellent cars from many manufacturers, so technically not mine, alas; but I still have a soft spot for the French brand.
