Lexus GS 300h 2014 Blue 620x277.j

Lexus, the bigger but more exclusive brother to Toyota, has been pushing hybrid technology for some time. While the Toyota Prius has been around for 13 years, it was only in 2005 that Lexus took the technology and put it in the RX 400h. Since that time the firm hasContinue Reading

Lexus revealed its dramatic RC coupe last week in Geneva, with the powerful RC F taking centre stage thanks to its 450bhp engine and exclusive design features and dynamic upgrades. Although loosely based on the GS platform, the RC will be a stand-alone model in the Lexus range, rather thanContinue Reading

I’ve written frequently about bangernomics, the principle of buying embarrassingly cheap cars and running them for as long as possible without spending anything. For the best part of six years, me and my far better half Samantha have been driving around in sub £500 motors without any issue. It worksContinue Reading

Infiniti Q50 2013 665x297

Premium. It’s a word that is thrown around by many with little thought as to what it actually means, attached to everything from cars (obviously) through to shampoo and paper towels. Perhaps it’s just the people I follow through social media (you can find me @FrontSeatPhil) but there has beenContinue Reading

Audi West London 2009 665x297

Back in May of this year I wrote about the steps Audi are taking to reinvent the car showroom at a time when research shows that 70 per cent of consumers have already made their mind up about a car long before stepping out of the house. Back in MayContinue Reading

Modern technology is fantastic. There may be plenty of claims that ‘things were better back in my day’ but, quite frankly, that is not true. Back in my day, whenever that was, you were lucky to get an FM radio in your new car. Now there are digital DAB radiosContinue Reading

If you are a French woman called Pascale who happens to be living in London, there’s a good chance that the forthcoming compact Infiniti could be the car for you. And just you.

Toyota Historic Fleet 665x297

If you search Google for “Toyota is boring” you’ll get some 4.7 million matches coming back to you. Search for “Toyota” and “beige” together and you get an astonishing 21.9 million matches.

Has there ever been a better time to sell cars? In the midst of a recession, or at the very least a flat economy, it might sound ridiculous to suggest that buying a car is a good idea, but as a country we’ll still get through close to two millionContinue Reading

It’s been a busy year at Front Seat Driver, with the site evolving as we learn exactly what it is that drives people to read these pages.

Naples is a noisy, crowded, dirty city. There’s an underlying tension in the air that leaves you with the impression that something is going to happen at any moment, and it probably won’t be good. There’s not a single car without a dent, including taxis, as there’s a mentality thatContinue Reading

This week I’ve been driving round in an Infiniti M35h. You might be forgiven for asking what that is, as many people over the last week have been asking me the same question.

As I write this I’m sitting on a Lufthansa flight to Munich, ready to drive the new Lexus GS. That made me think about the last time I saw a GS on the road and I honestly can’t remember. The very first GS was a car I lusted after, especiallyContinue Reading

There’s only a few months before Lexus send the all new LS luxury saloon to their dealers, but we took the opportunity to try out the outgoing model to see just what the 2013 car has to live up to.
