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

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

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: 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

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.
