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.

Vauxhall Corsa Review

Which one is this? Veeru or Jai?

Imagine two friends, let’s call them Veeru and Jai. In every regard they’re very closely matched in their abilities and skills and you know that when the chips are down, either would have your back and get you through a tough gig. The difference is in how.

Kia Sorento Review

It’s big, it’s bold, it’s…bravely priced!

This is the all-new fourth generation Kia Sorento 7-seater large SUV. Forget the previous editions, some of which weren’t the best looking SUVs around let’s be honest. Forget what you remember of the quality of the early models. Forget delicate tech and fragile fabrics of history past. In fact forget everything you thought you knew about the Kia Sorento. Prepared to be wowed by the Korean car company’s latest offering.

Honda E Review Daily VLOG

What’s it actually like to run the all-electric new Honda E for a few days?

I had the all-new baby electric Honda E for a few days on test, and I will be doing a full review on the car as usual, but seeing as this is the first time I spent more than a day with a full EV, I thought it would be interesting to blog the experience. Videos below!

2020 Suzuki Swift Sport Hybrid

Sport lives up to the Swift name, hybrid makes it thrifty and yet…

You either love the little Suzuki Swift, or it’s not on your radar. It’s one of those cars that once you have tried it, driven it, lived with it a while, you’ll swear by it. The fourth generation Suzuki Swift has been around since 2017 and maintained the sheer charm, usability and fun drive that keeps the Swift’s loyal following intact and growing.

Land Rover Defender 90 P400 & P300 On and Off-Road Review

Driving the new Defender 90 in top and entry spec on road, track off road!

Here’s the first review of the new Land Rover Defender 90. I know what you’re thinking, surely the new Defender has been out a while already? Indeed, and with some success. The Defender 110 clocked up 4500 sales in July, one of the best months ever for the company – under pressure from the pandemic and slowing export sales – but that’s the four-door long-wheel base version. The two-door edition was delayed.

Toyota RAV4 Hybrid Review

This chiselled brute is the best of the breed so far

This is the fifth generation of a model line that was launched back in 1994 and arguably kicked off the trend and set the standard for affordable family SUVs. Of course it won customers and plaudits for robustness, reliability and all-round ability and practicality.

Ford Mustang Bullitt Edition Review

There simply isn’t a cooler brand new car on sale right now

I never miss an opportunity to get behind the wheel of one of the most evocative and iconic nameplates in automotive history – a Ford Mustang. For well over half a century this has been the coolest ride on the block, it features in more movies and TV shows – not to mention – social media posts – than any other car. From Nicholas Cage’s Eleanor in Gone in 60 Seconds, to Will Smith’s Shelby in I Am Legend, to James Bond’s Mach 1 in Diamonds are Forever.

Full Review: Jeep Wrangler 2.0-litre two-door

We know it overlands and adventures, but does it work as an urban warrior?

An all-new version of the Jeep Wrangler, the JL, was launched in 2018 – I attended the European launch of the car in Spielberg, Austria, where I drove Middle East spec versions (I was reporting for Motoring Middle East at the time) and you can see that video below. Unlike the Middle East, however, the UK gets a choice of the 2.0-litre petrol or the 2.2 diesel and the highly regarded V6 Pentastar engine is not offered.
