Reviews

Got your eye on a shiny new car? Make sure you read The Car Expert review before signing on the dotted line.

Toyota Supra test drive

The new Toyota Supra delivers a unique driving experience that's one of the best of any modern sports car, and co-development with BMW has served the car well.

Audi SQ2 test drive

The Audi SQ2 is a very capable car, with great performance and all the trimmings you expect. The only frustration is the easily-confused gearbox.

Toyota Camry test drive

As a car to get from one place to another without fuss, it’s hard to go wrong with the Toyota Camry. It's easy to drive, spacious enough and efficient.

Volkswagen T-Cross test drive

The little Volkswagen T-Cross looks like being another successful SUV for VW. It blends style and practicality into a package that’s perfect for the city.

BMW X7 test drive

The BMW X7 is a genuine Range Rover alternative that undercuts it just enough on price to be noteworthy while presenting a more engaging driving experience.

Mercedes-Benz CLA test drive

The Mercedes-Benz CLA is handsome, good to drive and packed with kit, but if you're after practicality you'd be better waiting for the estate version.

Skoda Scala test drive

The Skoda Scala is everything you'd expect. It’s good to look at, hugely practical and comfortable, yet the brand’s core principle of value remains.

Audi e-tron test drive

Audi’s hotly-anticipated entry into the EV market is here, and the Audi e-tron brings with it a seamless blend of quality and electric power.

Honda HR-V Sport test drive

The Honda HR-V Sport is a seriously fun and genuinely interesting small SUV, although the price is a hefty jump over other HR-V models in the range.

Range Rover Evoque review

Land Rover has played with its best-seller just enough to ensure it is a credible threat to all the new rivals, without losing the basics that made the first Evoque such a success.

Toyota Yaris GR Sport test drive

Remember the limited-run Toyota Yaris GRMN of last year? That hot hatch took critics and enthusiasts by storm and was praised for...

Skoda Kodiaq vRS test drive

The Skoda Kodiaq vRS is not the last word in driver thrills, but there’s a lot to recommend this car as a bahnstorming family bus.

Volvo V60 Cross Country review

The Volvo V60 Cross Country adds extra versatility to an already impressive estate car. Few SUVs will tackle challenging conditions as effectively.

Mitsubishi Shogun Sport test drive

The Mitsubishi Shogun Sport will suit a few people very well – it’s rugged, it's great off-road and it's capable of carrying and towing vast loads.

Audi TT Roadster test drive

The 2019 Audi TT Roadster is a well-made, punchy sports car. It may not come alive like a Porsche Boxster, but you can still have plenty of fun in the sun.

Suzuki Jimny review

The new Suzuki Jimny is a proper SUV just like its predecessor, built for those who really want to take their vehicle a long way off the beaten track.

Lexus UX test drive

The rise of the compact SUV is seemingly unstoppable and Lexus wants to join the party with its latest model – the new Lexus UX hybrid.

Mazda 3 test drive

Boasting value for money, stunning looks and an impressive driving experience, the new Mazda 3 has everything to keep up with the best in its class.

Toyota Corolla review

Toyota has revived the Corolla name with a great package. This is a car with an eco-friendly hybrid drivetrain that offers plenty of space and looks good.

Infiniti Q30 AWD review

The Infiniti Q30 AWD is comfortable and quiet, and it has a unique style. Plus the security of all-wheel drive is much appreciated in slippery weather.

Honda CR-V Hybrid review

The Honda CR-V Hybrid could be an answer for those looking for a comfortable, spacious SUV that offers effective performance without writing headlines.

Jaguar XF Sportbrake test drive

The Jaguar XF Sportbrake is a genuine alternative to its premium German rivals. It looks good, drives well and will be spacious enough for most, too.

Citroën C5 Aircross review

The Citroen C5 Aircross may put some people off with its divisive looks, but it's right up with the best in its class and very much worth checking out.

Nissan Micra test drive

The Nissan Micra's new engines are a vast improvement, and they definitely make the Micra worth further consideration in 2019.

Peugeot 3008 long-term test: Report #3

Tom Wiltshire has been enjoying life in a Peugeot 3008, and the number of them on the roads (it’s the best-selling SUV in Europe) suggests others are, too.

Infiniti Q50 Hybrid review

If you want a compact executive saloon with hybrid power and all-wheel drive, the Infiniti Q50S Hybrid AWD will do the job very well. But that's a pretty narrow niche.

Porsche 911 Carrera S test drive

Getting the 911 just right is something Porsche has managed time and time again, and we’re thrilled to say it’s pulled it off once more.

Ferrari Portofino test drive

The new Ferrari Portofino feels far more part of the family than the California ever did, both in terms of how it looks and how it drives.

Kia ProCeed review

The new Kia ProCeed adds a worthy extension to the Ceed family car range, boasting a much more stylish exterior look that doesn't compromise practicality.

Toyota RAV4 review

The new Toyota RAV4 combines the latest hybrid powertrain and the updating opportunities provided by an all-new platform to produce a compelling package.

Hyundai Kona Electric test drive

As an affordable electric car, the Kona Electric is highly commendable. Fantastic performance and an easy-to-drive nature make it a compelling option.

Audi A6 Avant test drive

Audi’s latest A6 Avant is a dependable, comfortable and refined long-distance load-lugger – just as it always has been, historically.

Ford Focus Estate review

The new Ford Focus Estate should be popular. It has all the technology, quality and performance of its hatchback sister – plus a whole lot of extra space.

Ferrari GTC4Lusso test drive

It’s tough not to fall for the Ferrari GTC4Lusso. There are a few quirks that could grate over time, but they’re mere foibles in a totally addictive package.

Lexus ES test drive

Hybrid cars remain a niche choice, but the Lexus ES will be a serious executive contender when the majority of car buyers plug into the electric revolution.

BMW X3 review

The BMW X3 should be top of the list for anyone wanting an upmarket SUV. However, you will need to dip into the extensive options list to get the full experience.

Audi Q3 test drive

The new Audi Q3 falls into a heavily congested segment, one which its predecessor had nailed. This updated version, however, is likely to do just as well.

BMW 530i Touring test drive

Despite the current SUV craze, there’s still a place for the humble estate. This is one such vehicle – the BMW 5 Series Touring.

Jaguar E-Pace test drive

The Jaguar E-Pace may be the smallest of the company's three-pronged SUV range, but can it offer big-car practicality and a memorable drive?

Alpine A110 test drive

With French tricolour badges emblazoned across the inside and outside of the Alpine A110, it’s got Parisian passion seeping through its fuel lines.

Aston Martin DB11 Volante review

The Aston Martin DB11 V8 Volante combines the pleasures of a top-down convertible with the practicality of a long-distance cruiser.

Twin test: Renault Megane RS vs. Honda Civic Type R

Two of the best hot hatches on the market go head to head as the new Renault Megane RS Cup takes on the mighty Honda Civic Type R.

Alfa Romeo Stelvio review

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio is generally well built, and offers a combination of attractive looks and sporting prowess that many rivals do not.

Peugeot 3008 long-term test: Report #2

Is the Peugeot 3008 a case of style over substance and when do quirks become annoyances? It's month 2 of our long-term test.

Nissan Qashqai test drive

Does the Nissan Qashqai’s refreshed engine line-up have what it takes to keep the SUV as a UK favourite?

BMW 3 Series test drive

The BMW 3 Series is a household name – which means this all-new version has a lot riding on it. So does it live up to expectations? We find out.

Porsche Macan S test drive

A refresh has made Porsche Macan an even more appealing package. The Macan S, in particular, is a more compelling option than the four-cylinder base car.

Renault Kadjar test drive

While other SUVs of this size may get the job done with a little more style and flair, the Renault Kadjar is still well worth considering.

Mercedes-Benz C-Class saloon test drive

The C-Class does all of the things you’d want a premium saloon to do. It’s comfortable over long distances and comes with plenty of standard equipment.

BMW X5 test drive

The new BMW X5 falls down in too many areas to be a class leader, but will appeal to many buyers – it’s still a status symbol and still great to drive.

Lexus RX L test drive

It's something of a quirky choice, but if you’re after an seven-seat hybrid SUV and your focus is on comfort, the Lexus RX L will serve you pretty well.

Ford Edge test drive

The updated 2019 Ford Edge is comfortable, good to drive and provides an awful lot of usable space, with a great new bi-turbo diesel engine.
