The Mercedes EQS is the S-Class of Electric Cars. It was the first EQ model based on the MEA EV platform and is powered by a water-cooled motor sending torque to the rear wheels through a single-speed gearbox.
Get past the grille and you’ll feel right at home if you’re a former Beemer owner
Let’s tackle that controversial grille first – you either hate it or you… reckon it’s not so bad. I’m in the latter camp, especially after spending a few days with the car, and noting that the UK number plate bisecting it, makes it far less overt and in-yer-face. Some may still complain that it’s elongated upright stance is unpalatable and at odds with traditional BMW styling cues, but there is a precedent for such grilles in BMW’s historical back catalogue. Anyway of all of BMW’s questionable styling choices, this is nowhere near as bad as the now legendary ‘Bangle Butt’ introduced on the 2000s BMW 7 Series – that some now hail as a pivotal moment in the marque’s design evolution – and I still really don’t like that!
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.
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.
Finally, fun little pugs that you can love for their intelligence as well as their spirit
One of the best-selling cars in the UK is the Vauxhall Corsa, it’s usually right up there in the top two jostling for the top spot with the Ford Fiesta. The chances then, are high, that you might be considering getting one. Before you do that however, read this!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
