Jaguar E-Pace 300E Review

Little cub is reborn and chargeD up!

This may look familiar, in fact you may be questioning how it’s any different to when the Jaguar E-Pace was first introduced as the British luxury car maker’s baby SUV just four years ago. There’s a new grille and revised bumpers and inside the latest generation infotainment and a new gear lever. Underneath however, it is all-new. Well that is to say it adopts the Range Rover Evoque’s platform, that’s been designed to accommodated a hybrid drivetrain.

Peugeot E-208 Review

It’s fun and futuristic – so surely it makes sense as an electric car?

The Peugeot 208 is a great little car. Reasonably practical for its size, the best built that Peugeot’s have ever been, featuring a futuristic dashboard and instrument panel that would shame a Lamborghini, sensible economy and an engaging and fun drive that works hard to make you think it’s a hot hatch – there isn’t really one in the range yet.

Alfa Romeo Stelvio Veloce Review

It’s not the SUV you need, it’s the SUV you deserve

This isn’t my first time reviewing an Alfa Romeo Stelvio. I reviewed both the 510bhp Quadrifoglio and 280bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged four cylinder when they first came out about four years ago. For the latest model year generation, the Stelvio has received a few enhancements. But here’s a sage piece of advice: never pass up an opportunity to drive a Stelvio. By the end of this piece, or if you watch my video review, you’ll realise why.

Audi A3 40 TFSi e (PHEV) Sportback Review

The new Audi A3 is the best-looking it’s ever been, but does the Plug-In hybrid appeal?

This is the Audi A3 Sportback 40 TFSI e – let me translate that for you: it’s the A3 hatchback with a 1.4-litre four-cylinder engine producing 150bhp,though that’s not it’s only power unit. As the ‘e’ in the title signifies, this is a plug-in electric hybrid (PHEV) which also packs an 85kW electric motor integrated into the six-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox producing 107bhp.

Ford Puma Review

Check out my full review of the Puma reincarnation

Yes, there was a Ford Puma in the late 90s. Yes, it was a two-door sporty little thing. No, this new Puma is not quite the same. But yes, there is some shared DNA. And something else, both are recipients of great acclaim and numerous awards.
