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: Fiat Abarth 595 Competizione 180bhp

Don’t be fooled by its diminutive size, this is one feisty little hot hatch

By Shahzad Sheikh

Remember Rhino the hamster-in-a-ball who is a fan of, and then befriends, Bolt the supposed superdog in the 2008 Disney movie? Rhino is tiny and tubby, but a powerhouse of passion, puissance and pluck; naive about the world, unshakeable in self-belief, and unconcerned about any notion of conventionality.  

That’s who this crazed and not-so-cuddly-and-cute, Fiat Abarth 595 Competizione, reminds me of.

Toyota Aygo Review

It maybe tiny, but it’s got a lot of heart!

By Shahzad Sheikh

This is the 2019 Toyota Aygo in X-trend spec which is actually new for this year. It gets the 15-inch machined alloys and the red accents on the sills, bumper and mirrors, which are cool.
