Isuzu, perhaps to crown their 100th anniversary celebrations, packed their already capable D-Max off to Iceland to be fiddled with by Arctic Trucks, the company that’s been re-engineering 4x4s for life in the frozen wastelands for the best part of 25 years. The result is the D-Max Arctic Trucks AT35. And it’s the most extreme pick-up on the market today...
Imagine your CEO stands up in front of the world and bravely declares: "by 2020, we will reduce the average CO2 emissions of our range by 25 per cent." What do you do? If you work for most car companies, you’ll probably be forced to hunt through your existing range to find something into which you can shoehorn an electric motor and a stack of batteries.

This might surprise you, but Subaru have been making ‘boxer’ (or horizontally-opposed) engines for 50 years now. In that time, they’ve churned out more than 16 million of them, so it’s certainly fair to say they’ve got it down to a fine art. That process of continuous refinement applies equally to the cars that are powered by them, and none represents that ethos better than the Subaru Forester.
We Brits like a good pick-up. Although initially derided as the proverbial sow’s ear, attempts by ‘ute manufacturers to drag them towards some semblance of modern-day convenience (perhaps kick-started by Mitsubishi and their Animal tie-in) did actually go on to prove one thing: they are bloody useful things. We tested the new Series 5 Mitsubishi L200 Barbarian to see just how useful.
