Land Rover’s utilitarian offering is just as refined as the regular Defender
It's Land Rover-speak for a Defender with a load of nothingness where the rear seats ought to be.Available in both short-wheelbase 90 and long-wheelbase 110 body styles, the Hard Top is the new Defender at its most
Going electric has made it a deftly handling crossover
Here comes Volvo's first fully-electric offering, a car whose full name is too long to fit on its attractively undulating tailgate. The XC40 Recharge P8, priced from a hearty £49,950 (P3.33 million), is tasked with persuading still-wavering
Harder, better, faster
It's been over a decade since I last drove a Mazda CX-9. That first-generation SUV was a revelation for a mass-market crossover, its rorty V6 and keen driving dynamics rivaling that of the vaunted BMW X5. But its
If you have the budget
This is the second step in Porsche's electric strategy. We've had the Taycan-this is its crossover cousin, the Cross Turismo. Think Audi Allroad and you're spot-on. In due course, there'll be a Sport Turismo along with
“Nothing can touch a track-optimized 911 for linearity and interactivity”
Steeped in Porsche's monumental motorsport genius, the 911 GT3 is traditionally the sweetest of sweet spots and equally devastating on road and track.For the first time since 1999, however, the new GT3 is arriving into unusually hostile territory. The optics
How well does the newcomer fare against its more established rivals?
Believe it or not, it's five years since Porsche lopped two cylinders from its base Cayman, tacked on a 718 badge to evoke some history, and ignited the bottom half of the Internet in the process. A lot has happened since
Is this CX-5-based midsize crossover as good as the CX-9?
It's incredibly easy to write a Mazda review nowadays. First, drive the wheels off the car. Second, bask in the afterglow of the experience. Smoke a cigarette if you have one, but not in the car, and not in public. Scratch
“Still a gorgeously refined long-distance GT”
Here's one of the biggest boots you can buy, if that's not too vulgar a way to begin. Sure, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Wagon has plenty of technical and engineering talent to entice you toward it and away from
Isuzu finally gets serious
It's been a long time coming, but it's finally here: the all-new D-Max. A truck whose development spanned several years' and millions of kilometers' worth of testing and prototyping-and it shows. From the moment you start up
“This feels like it was intended to be a hot hatch from the word go”
This is Hyundai reinforcing its hot-hatch credentials. First, back in late 2017, we had the i30N, now we have the i20N. Soon, a Kona N will be along, because hot crossovers are a thing these days. But the i20N is interesting,
Is it now more desirable than the previous version?
The previous Suzuki Dzire was a delightfully weird car built to exploit Indian-market tax breaks for sub-four-meter sedans. It drove better than it had any right to, thanks to Swift-based roots, but decent dynamics couldn't balance out
We try out two variants from the range: the E220d and the E53 AMG
If the S-Class is the car that defines Mercedes-Benz as a purveyor of very clever, safe and refined luxury cars, then the E-Class is the lucky little brother that comes along shortly afterwards and gets most-if not all-
GAC’s contender in the subcompact-crossover class is going for gold
When discussing the GS3's NCAP crash-safety results with a friend, he remarked that getting five stars is easy when you use a chassis from an established manufacturer. Fair point. But while GAC's Cross-Modular Platform Architecture (CMPA) was licensed
“It’s a true automotive Swiss Army knife”
The Discovery 5 is the biggest, most luxurious, most off-road-handy Land Rover that money can buy. Want even more than this? Then you're into Range Rover territory.Question is, why would you possibly want 'more car' than a Disco?
Two American giants collide, the old-timer muscling in on the startup’s patch
As punch-ups go, this is right up there with David and Goliath-the irony being that Ford is the challenger and Tesla is the giant in this ring. Tesla's value recently topped $600 billion-a staggering 16 times that of
Glass half-empty or half-full?
It's a big moment. The first BMW M4 was a hit. Those of us who geek out over the lineage of performance cars saw the renaming of the two-door M3 as a bit of an affront. Meanwhile, those who actually
“In its ability to deliver speed and composure, it’s a huge step up from its predecessor”
It's the new BMW M3, as if you couldn't tell. Still a twin-turbo straight six under the hood, still rear-wheel drive, still a simple four-door bodyshell-that much is carried over from its predecessor.Then we get
Still a Jaguar at heart, despite being an SUV
It's been a long time since I've driven a Jag, the last being the original F-Type R-a rear-drive supercharged sports car that would attempt to introduce you to the nearest tree the moment you so much as
“This is performance that transcends speed, that’s as much theatrical as physical”
This is, by some distance, the most complicated car Lamborghini has ever produced. Yes, it's shown us the Terzo Millennio with its batteries-for-body-panels and the V10 plug-in hybrid Asterion in the past, but both of those were
“This car is rarer than a Lamborghini”
A small, expensive diesel wagon. Considering the car buying world's proclivity for big SUVs, humankind's propensity for bagging a bargain, and the global conscience steeling itself toward electrification, you might call this car...a bit out of touch.You might
