Nissan Qashqai – still a top seller

By |2022-01-12T11:35:31+00:00January 17th, 2022|Car news and reviews, Nissan Reviews|

The Qashqai was conceived as a family car and it remains true to its roots – good dimensions, not too big, not too small, plenty of room, a big boot and wide-opening rear doors. It’s easy to get in and out of – for people and the cargo – and it’s easy to drive. Despite the relatively small 1.3 under the bonnet, it’s lively enough in the 156hp for we tried.

Top of the class – Škoda Enyaq iV 80 82kWh Suite

By |2022-01-06T13:48:03+00:00January 10th, 2022|Car news and reviews, Electric Vehicles, Skoda Reviews|

The all-new Škoda Enyaq iV is one of the most significant new models ever introduced in the brand’s 126-year history. Fully electric and designed from the ground up to deliver a completely new driving experience, it sets new benchmarks for space, technology and value.

Family flexibility – Citroen Berlingo Flair XTR XL PureTech 130

By |2022-01-04T10:19:13+00:00January 4th, 2022|Car news and reviews, Citroen Reviews|

It’s basically a van so don’t expect car-like agility and performance, but it is a flexible and functional family conveyance. You won’t experience a typically Citroen ‘cushion’ ride but the suspension is set up well enough to ride out the general road lumps and bumps while steering is light which, allied to a very tight turning circle, makes the Berlingo very manoeuvrable.

Citroen e-Spacetourer – an electric people mover

By |2021-12-17T10:11:32+00:00December 17th, 2021|Car news and reviews, Citroen Reviews, Electric Vehicles, News|

The e-SpaceTourer’s van heritage also means that it’s not very light on its feet with a top speed of just 80mph and a 0-62mph acceleration time pf 13.1 seconds. You can certainly live with that given its carrying capacity, but a 143 mile range? – not so much.

Killer looks – Hyundai Ioniq 5

By |2022-01-07T11:55:09+00:00December 9th, 2021|Car news and reviews, Electric Car Reviews, Electric Vehicles, Hyundai Reviews, News|

We think it will have other manufacturers looking over their shoulder. As well as its dynamic looks, the Ioniq 5 is a  delight to drive. It’s size is deceptive, there’s a lot more room inside than you might think and you sit up high, SUV-like, so get a commanding view of the road.

On test – Peugeot 3008 Allure Premium 1.2L PureTech 130

By |2021-11-16T14:27:35+00:00November 16th, 2021|Car news and reviews, News, Peugeot Reviews|

Back on March we looked at the 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder Plug-in-Hybrid 3008. This time round we've been in the sparky , 3-cyclinder 1.2 version. This 1.2-litre engine might sound small for a family SUV, yet it’s more than up to the task. Performance is respectable and it’s economical as well - we achieved an average of just over 40mpg over almost 500 miles.

Smooth Operator Vivaro-e Elite 3100 75kWh review

By |2022-01-10T10:24:01+00:00November 3rd, 2021|Car news and reviews, Electric Car Reviews, Electric Vehicles, Vauxhall Reviews|

It’s electric. The Vauxhall Vivaro-e is one of three new electric vans, along with the Citroen e-Dispatch and Peugeot e-Expert, which share the same running gear. All three share similar prices and specification and boast longer ranges and better prices than most rivals, notably from Germany.

Land Rover unveils its all-new Rangie

For the first time the Rangie comes with seven seats and also available as a plug-in hybrid - a full EV is coming - to combat the onslaught of upmarket, large SUV rivals.

Electric dream – BMW iX3

By |2022-01-07T11:33:37+00:00October 26th, 2021|BMW Reviews, Car news and reviews, Electric Car Reviews, Electric Vehicles, News|

Maybe a bit of a surprise is that the X3 in petrol, diesel and hybrid form, is BMW’s best-selling car. The electric version has been added to the existing hardware so outwardly little looks different from the rest of the range which was recently facelifted. What is different is the 282bp, 74kW electric motor which is not the biggest around but it does have a WLTP range of 285 mile

Award winner – Range Rover Evoque P300E

By |2021-08-09T14:35:10+01:00August 9th, 2021|Car news and reviews, Land Rover Reviews, News|

With an electric-only range of 34 miles and CO2 emissions of just 44g/km, the Evoque P300e benefits from low Benefit-in-Kind tax bands; from just 10% in 20/21 and 11% in 21/22 – for a 40% rate taxpayer that equates to a monthly car tax liability from around £150/ month. The P300e is already in strong demand from SME customers; fleet managers for its compelling financial package and end-users for its refined driving experience, luxurious cabin, hi-tech functions and cutting-edge exterior.

VW ID.3 Family Pro Performance – Lots to like

By |2022-01-07T11:33:34+00:00July 27th, 2021|Car news and reviews, Electric Car Reviews, News, Volkswagen Reviews|

Like the original Beetle, the iD 3 is rear-wheel-drive with motor and gearbox located on the rear axle.  The drive unit develops up to 204 PS in the ID.3 yet, incredibly, together the motor and gearbox weigh only  90 kg and are compact enough to fit into a gym bag
