The sDrive20i is P1.8 million less expensive than the range-topping M40i
We try out the Tesla Model 3’s rival and Polestar’s first EV
You ought to be familiar with Polestar by now-the race team that went on to tune Volvo's road cars, was bought by the company in 2015 and eventually transformed into a standalone electric performance-car brand. Its first car, the
This is the future of performance cars
This is Porsche's first all-electric car, previewed by the Mission E concept way back in 2015. A car we're expecting to re-write the rule book on what an EV is capable of. A torch-bearer for the future
It's sensational
A contradiction. It's the humblest Porsche Cayenne Coupe. Not the Cayenne S Coupe, nor the Cayenne Turbo S Coupe e-Hybrid Coupe S Turbo-ey-turbo S thingy.Just Cayenne Coupe. Sportiest Cayenne body style (20mm lower, 18mm wider at the
Read our review of the extensively upgraded model
Five years after launch, the Discovery Sport remains Land Rover's best-selling car. So, it's perhaps no surprise that its midlife refresh has seen the exterior remain largely the same, with some fancier LED lights and retrimmed bumpers about the
Another mechanical masterpiece from Maranello
For all that Ferrari is, well, Ferrari, sometimes the world's most famous car company can come over curiously...needy. Its 3.9-liter twin turbo V8 has won a hatful of awards, and boy is Ferrari happy about it. The best
It's almost unfair on the rivals
Well, it is and it isn't. It's the new £83,000 (around P5.26 million) 992-gen Carrera, the car which will forever be called the 'non-S' instead.So, it's still a 911. It's still got a
Watch out, Tesla—Porsche’s coming after you
Aha! Wrong! This time, we've actually driven the first all-electric Porsche on public roads. Full disclosure-it was around 30 minutes behind the wheel, on some semi-decent but not particularly fast roads near Porsche's Weissach test track. Followed
The German carmaker will likely sell them in droves
The plug-in hybrid version. It's a four-cylinder gasoline engine and an electric motor. Both send power, separately or independently, through the automatic transmission. There was one of these in the old 3-Series range, but the new one can
“The way that the slicks and the aero conspire is literally”
This is the new Porsche 935, a 'single-seater, near-standard, non-homologated racing car' according to Porsche. But more prosaically, it's a 911 GT2 RS-based, 77-car track toy that pays homage to the monster 911 endurance racer from
This or the sedan?
To anyone who's done their 3-Series homework, the Touring wagon brings no surprises. The front half is pretty much identical, and that's absolutely no bad thing.Towards the rear, the designers have taken on the same mission as with
The wonder of natural aspiration lives on in this V10 supercar
We're ignoring the Audi R8 are we? Expect Lambo wish they could sometimes. Not to mention overlooking the Porsche 911 GT3 or Ferrari 812 Superfast. But it's a good point; so-called 'everyday' supercars with multi-cylinder engines breathing as
Meet the Volante version of Aston’s V12 coupe
A very long silly name, but you probably won't care when you tuck into the spec of the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Volante. This is the ultimate open Aston, and may be forevermore, unless someone with a Valkyrie fires it under
Check out part three of our Supra mega-test
Make no mistake-there's a battle going on for what makes a car a success. But it's not so much a war of words as it is a bleeding-knuckles, last-man-standing melee between words and numbers. It's '
We've been dying to know
Ne'er before have two cars been mentioned in the same breath more often. Supra and Z4, or 'Zupra' if you ask the wittier corners of the Top Gear office. We all know the story by now: Toyota wanted to revive the
Did Toyota build a better sports car?
Something unusual happened on the launch of the Toyota Supra in Spain a few weeks back. Tetsuya Tada, the Supra's chief engineer, openly expressed his admiration for Porsche. This doesn't happen. Representatives from one company scrupulously avoid talking about another'
Is this the Porsche you've been waiting for?
A totally pointless addition to the automotive landscape. Or the Porsche you've been waiting years for. Which way you swing-and we hardly suspect you dwell in the middle-will depend on how you view the modern phenomenon of the SUV
The 991’s last hurrah
Very well spotted. The new 992-generation Porsche 911 may currently be melting our expectations of how well-rounded a sports car can be, but the outgoing 991-gen hasn't quite retired yet. This 911 Speedster is its spectacular send-off-
Is Merc’s 2.0-liter turbo-four diesel up to the task of moving such a big car?
Nope. They might look tiny beneath the Mercedes-Benz GLE's bulbous wheel arches, but they're actually a whopping 20 inches in diameter. That's just how big this car looks, how hulking its presence. The GLE's actual dimensions aren'
“It’s ‘how did mere humans build something this brutal’ fast”
An artillery division made of fireworks, aimed at your senses. The Pagani Huayra Roadster would still drop jaws and stop traffic if it had the engine from a VW Polo, but thanks to a 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 from AMG
How good a car this is depends on how you spec it
The A-Class has become a huge seller for Mercedes-Benz in certain markets, so this replacement matters. It'll do well-the old one certainly had issues, but that didn't stop it.This is pretty much an all-new platform,
