2017 Kia Rio Review

,

For a supermini to be successful, it needs to perform a seemingly impossible task: it must appear larger on the inside than it does from the outside. Rather encouragingly, we’ve seen with the Optima that Kia has a history of performing minor packaging miracles, so it was with raised expectations that the new Rio arrived for a week’s testing, accompanied by a press pack that described Kia’s global best-seller as a ‘big little car.’

2017 Mitsubishi ASX Review

2017 Mitsubishi ASX Review

,

When we reviewed the Mitsubishi ASX back in 2014, it arrived almost exactly as large swathes of the UK became submerged during the worst flooding the country had seen in decades. At the time, the ASX impressed us with its willingness to keep on chugging even as our roads became fast-flowing rivers, but with Mitsubishi giving the ASX something of a facelift for 2017, we thought we’d see how the company’s crossover has fared over the years.

2017 Mazda6 Review

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. That’s because most of the changes are to things you wouldn’t necessarily notice at first glance, but the cumulative effect is far greater.

New Suzuki Ignis Review

New Suzuki Ignis Review

,

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. As anyone who drove one knew, the secret to making progress was to maintain momentum at all costs. Clearly, someone at Suzuki has similarly fond memories, because the new Ignis feels like the Whizzkid’s spiritual successor.

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...

Volvo V90 Review

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...

At last year’s Geneva Motor Show, Kia confirmed that their well-received Sportspace concept would enter production as the Optima Sportswagon. This piqued our interest for several reasons, not the least of which was how the thing looked...

2017 Toyota Hilux Review

,

Before we get too far into the nitty gritty of whether Toyota's latest iteration of its long-lived pick-up is any good, I ought to make an admission: I already own a Hilux. It's a 2012 model, and although it's been largely dependable it's up for replacement...

When we first reviewed the current generation Mazda3 back in 2014, we came away impressed. That’s not surprising, really: it looks good, drives well, and is powered by a range of great engines...

Isuzu D-Max Arctic Trucks AT35 Review

,

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...
