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

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.
