Range Rover Sport

Test Location: UK  Now, here’s a question that you might not know the answer to but will almost certainly have an opinion on. Is the Range Rover Sport one of the most influential cars of the modern era? A decade or so ago it seemed like all the celebrities were arriving to events in a...

Audi A4 Avant 3.0 TDI quattro 218PS

Test Location: UK  Fitted with a 3.0 litre V6 engine, the latest Audi A4 Avant becomes almost too powerful for its own good. Don’t get me wrong; the diesel lump is a real pearl, but there’s no way it returns the claimed 57.6mpg when riding on 19-inch wheels. I found the car thirsty, and mid-30s...

The fresh 5008...

2017 Infiniti Q60 S 3.0T Sport Tech

This Infiniti supersedes the G37 coupé, a sweet-revving V6 beast that’s relatively uncommon on the UK’s roads. The Q60 replacement model is equally as rare as hen’s teeth, but that may change if Infiniti, the posh arm of Nissan, gets its marketing right. Certainly, many heads swivelled in my direction during the week I tested...

Skoda Kodiaq

Skoda’s Kodiaq is a competitor to SUVs, such as the Kia Sportage. The car isn’t massive, but it’s big enough to fit up to seven people across three rows of seats. There’s a five-seater only version, too. I tested the car in Edition 2.0 TDI 190PS 4×4 DSG seven-seat guise, which means lots of equipment...

Volvo V90 R-Design Review

Volvo estates have come a long way since their ‘wardrobe on wheels’ image. We all knew they were safe and comfortable; they just weren’t sexy. That all changed some years ago, and the last V70 looked great; perhaps even better than its saloon sibling, the S80. Then in 2016, the V90 and the booted S90...
