New car reviews

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.
