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.

In short, it’s a hit. Continue reading

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 FIAT 500X – è stato bello

There’s something about Latin cars that brings on a little Italian flair to the writing even when, as in this case, under the skin they are a Jeep Renegade. The original FIAT 500 is now an object of automotive desire and the designers have done a great job with bringing the diminutive model into the 21st Century. What we didn’t know is that it would grow and grow. It grew into the 500L and then into the FIAT 500X Cross you see here. Continue reading
