Subaru Forester e-Boxer first drive – all-new model makes hybrid leap

Subaru Forester e-Boxer first drive – all-new model makes hybrid leap

Subaru’s Forester has been around for more than 20 years now, offering a practical and rugged leftfield choice long before soft SUVs became the norm. Those 20 years have seen the Forester evolve across four generations but later this year this all-new fifth generation will go on sale in the UK. Park the new and […]

Isuzu D-Max AT35 review – Arctic Truck is one cool customer

Isuzu D-Max AT35 review – Arctic Truck is one cool customer

Arctic Trucks started making a name for itself in this country after Top Gear took one of its modified Toyota Hiluxes to the North Pole in 2007 but the Icelandic firm has been around since 1990 taking rugged pick-up trucks and making them capable of astonishing off-road feats. As well as Toyota and Nissan, Arctic […]

Audi Q3 review

Audi Q3 review

The original Audi Q3 was a bit of a trailblazer when it launched in 2011. The family sized SUV market was already growing but the Q3 was one of the first from a premium brand. Now we’ve got Evoques, X2s, XC40s and GLCs coming out of our ears, so the market for the new Q3 […]

Peugeot 508 SW review – an estate car with boot-loads of style

Peugeot 508 SW review – an estate car with boot-loads of style

I’m a sucker for an estate car – always have been – and I can’t think of a car that hasn’t been improved by the addition of a station wagon-style back end. The Peugeot 508 is no exception. In fastback form it is one of the most stylish and attractive models in its class and […]

Subaru Forester review – leftfield SUV still going its own way

Subaru Forester review – leftfield SUV still going its own way

With a new Subaru Forester due in the UK late 2019 you could forgive the Japanese all-wheel drive specialists for running down the clock and shifting focus onto other models like the XV compact crossover, or the Outback estate. But the Forester SUV is still a key part of Subaru’s lifestyle-focused UK line-up and, instead, […]

Isuzu D-Max review – a plain but practical pick-up

Isuzu D-Max review – a plain but practical pick-up

One of the first test cars I ever drove was an Isuzu Rodeo Denver, more than a decade ago. It was a be-chromed top-of-the-range model designed to capitalised on the relatively new craze for double-cab pick-ups to double up as family transport. That craze is still going strong but the uninspiring Rodeo has long been […]

Jeep Renegade Limited review – Limited in more ways than one

Jeep Renegade Limited review – Limited in more ways than one

Jeep is a name with a long, proud history. The brand was born from the American military’s demand for a small tough vehicle and subsequent consumer desire for something similar. At its core for the last 70 years has stood the civilian Jeep (CJ) and later Wrangler models but like every brand Jeep has had […]

Volkswagen T-Cross review – latecomer storms to the front of the pack

Volkswagen T-Cross review – latecomer storms to the front of the pack

It won’t have escaped your attention, but the world appears to have gone ‘compact crossover mad’. Everywhere you look, the car parks are chockfull of the baby SUVs. And if that concerns you, I have bad news: it’s about to get even worse. However, and more importantly, the good news is the latest arrival promises […]

SsangYong Musso review

SsangYong Musso review

Musso is Korean for Rhino, apparently, which explains why the name has ended up attached to SsangYong’s intimidating-looking pick-up truck and not some pocket-sized city car. It’s a fitting name for a model designed to face the rigours of farms and building sites, although our high-spec Saracen model is also kitted out to handle family […]
