2017 Isuzu D-Max Blade Review

,

Never, while behind the wheel of an Isuzu D-Max, have I found myself thinking "this is a great truck, but what it really needs is a smaller engine." In 2.5-litre twin-turbo form, we've praised the D-Max for its no-nonsense utilitarian appeal, and in Arctic Trucks AT35 guise, it's proved itself practically unstoppable. So when Isuzu revealed the 2017 model would be powered by a new 1.9-litre engine, I have to say I had my doubts.

Volvo S90 R-Design Review

So busy are we buying hatchbacks and crossovers that the concept of having four doors and a boot feels like something that died with the Ford Cortina. But that didn't stop the Mercedes C-Class bursting into the top 10 sellers list this year to rub shoulders with the Ford Focus. And if all saloons were like the Volvo S90, we’d probably buy a lot more of them.

Volvo V90 Cross Country Review

Volvo V90 Cross Country Review

,

Jacked-up estate cars can sometimes end up feeling like the poor relation; a last-ditch attempt to mop up a few niche sales with the promise of a suspension lift and some plastic cladding. However, it's a recipe Volvo have been perfecting since they created the V70 XC back in 1997. And, having spent a week a with it, I humbly submit that this latest Cross Country model, far from being the runt of the V90 range, is actually the pick of the bunch...

Mazda MX-5 RF Review

Mazda MX-5 RF Review

,

Most of us think of the Mazda MX-5 as an enthusiastic little soft-top. Which is ironic, because far more people bought the folding hard-top version, and by some margin (80%, in fact). Perhaps that was an admission that our country’s climate offers far from ideal convertible opportunities. Or, more likely, simply because the folding hard-top offered just the same roof-down experience but with the bonus of an added sense of security. For the new MX-5, however, Mazda wanted to do something a little different...

2017 Mazda6 Review

Mazda has always been one of the better manufacturers for regularly updating their products to keep them ahead of the curve, and for 2017 it’s the turn of the Mazda6 to benefit from a little fiddling. From the outside, you perhaps wouldn’t know anything has changed, save for a new Machine Grey metallic paint finish and indicators built-in to the door mirrors...

If, like me, you’re of a certain age, you’ll probably remember being buzzed by a Suzuki Whizzkid. Despite having less than 50hp to play with, these little tykes had a habit of appearing in your rear-view mirror as if from nowhere before whirring past the instant a tiny gap appeared...

A few years ago, I pitched an idea to a number of car manufacturers, that of using the existing forward-looking camera that powers the wave of new safety features as a built-in dashcam. At the time, no-one seemed interested...

When Volvo launched the new V90, they did so with a series of rather stirring videos. There’s nothing unusual about that: we’re used to seeing images of the latest model pivoting from one sinuous corner to the next on an implausibly traffic-free road...
