Review: Kia Soul EV – but has it got SOUL?!!

This is the grooviest car review on the internet right now. Full Video Too!

Kia call this car the Soul, and music has always been an integral theme with this model range – even in this latest third generation edition. You can see that from the acoustically-themed stylised interior design elements, and the fact that it’s got a banging 10-speaker Harmon/Kardon sound system. Whilst on the UK launch of the latest version, the most pertinent comment of the day came from Kevin Haggarthy: “I know why this car doesn’t have any engine noise, it’s so we can hear the music better!”

Review: BMW 840 Gran Coupe M Sport

Check out our extensive drive review of the new 8 Series Gran Coupe

By Shahzad Sheikh

It had pop-up lights and it’s now an appreciating classic, the original BMW 8 Series ran from 1990-1999, and I remember it well. Sleek, long bonnet, short rear deck, and packed with electronics and gadgetry that was frankly frightening in its day. And to be fair, that’s what led to considerable depreciation for this otherwise sexy and highly desirable car, as technical complexity scared off a lot of potential used car owners. That’s changing fast as, along with the most popular 1990s models, it hits modern classic status and values start to increase.

Review: Suzuki Jimny

Our comprehensive review of the Suzuki Jimny

By Shahzad Sheikh

I have been waiting two years to do a full review on the new Suzuki Jimny. It’s had people lining up around the block to get one since its launch in 2018, thanks to the adorable, yet too-cool-for-cute looks that make it appear tough yet tonka toy-like. It’s akin to a mini Mercedes G-Wagen and in fact you can get body kits that convert it to look like one – they love those in the Middle East.

Review: Fiat 500X

Most of us are cute when we’re babies. And then we grow up

However some fortunate few manage to retain that adorability even as they mature. In the car world, that’s the 500X. If every time you happen upon a Fiat 500 you just want to pick it up and cuddle it, then you’ll like its bigger brother, the 500X. Okay, you may not want to pick it up – it looks firmly within its puppy-fat phase – but you’ll want to pull its cheeks (fenders) and pat it on the head (roof).

2020 Honda Civic Type R Review

Kevin’s got one on test – his review coming soon – meanwhile, here’s one Shahzad did earlier!

When it came to Hondas, Type R used to mean screaming highly-strung motors, super tight shocks to keep the car flat (and chiropractors in business), and a raw lightness more redolent of a tin-top racer for the track than a sportscar for B-roads. Type R also meant the most exciting, capable and engaging versions of ordinary cars ever offered for sale.

New Land Rover Discovery Sport

 

Ice? Rain? Snow?

We have a new Discovery for you……..

by Kevin Haggarthy

 

It’s been very cold, and certainly one of the worst Winters for a while. Think of that awful day, the one you thought would never happen; stranded in your vehicle in the middle of nowhere in snow and ice. In the same way you thought you should have gone to Specsavers before you walked into that lamp post, it’s times like these when you wish you’d bought a Land Rover.

Alfa Stelvio Quadrifoglio…….Your naughty Valentine’s Day treat?

With Valentines Day just a few weeks away, the Alfa Stelvio Quadrifoglio could be your first sign of Infidelity……….

by Kevin Haggarthy

You can fall in love with a car. You can. It’s an emotional thing, one that you either understand or you don’t. If you don’t there’s a good chance the relationship with your loved one could be in jeopardy. If you do, you’d never dream of depriving your loved one of his/her indulgence. I proposed to my first love when she suggested we invest in a Ferrari. I knew at that moment she was ‘the one’……. Continue reading “Alfa Stelvio Quadrifoglio…….Your naughty Valentine’s Day treat?”

DS 3 Crossback Review

Compact Crossover offers Captivating Style!

By Shahzad Sheikh

If you want style and panache from a car you might want to take a look at European brands that are funnelling the essence of continental catwalk fashion into the themes and aesthetics of their automobiles. I previously reviewed the DS7 Crossback, which encapsulates this ethos, but if you don’t need something quite as commodious then take a look at this lovely crossover SUV from the Citroen spin-off brand DS.

Review: Dodge Charger Hellcat Widebody – forbidden fruit!

Antiquated and outmoded, or the automotive last action heroes? Either way, it’s worth one last ride

By Shahzad Sheikh

If you’re here, here in the UK that is, you can’t have this car. It’s like automotive forbidden fruit. Now you’re curious right? Especially when I tell you that you’re looking at the most powerful production four-door saloon car in the world. Yep, the next most powerful four-door would be the 680bhp Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid.
