Based on the mid-range Acenta model, the special version of the revised Micra comes with a contrasting roof and mirrors, side sills and wheel centreContinue Reading

Top Ten 2013 665x297 Phil Huff FrontSeatDriver.co.uk

The last twelve months have been fantastic for car fans the world over, with some incredible machinery coming to the market. I’ve been fortunate enough to get behind the wheel of 121 different new cars over the year, some of which you’ll find reviews of on these pages, alongside otherContinue Reading

Nissan’s Note was a worthy if unremarkable small MPV. Easy to drive, but lacking any kind of wow factor, it was exactly the sort of car that a power-hungry, oversteer-loving road tester would avoid. Now there’s a new Note, so does this one strike a chord or is serving upContinue Reading

Renault Zoe 2013 665x297

I really quite like electric cars, which surprises many people as they know my preference for large capacity V8 engines that make lots of noise and use lots of petrol. However, there is something very relaxing about driving an electric car. Obviously there is the lack of noise. Some modelsContinue Reading

Renault Zoe 2013 665x297

Electric cars just aren’t taking off. Sales remain pitifully low, with both private buyers and fleet buyers put off by the same old issues that have plagues electric cars for the last 100 years – yes, they have really been around that long.

Infiniti Q50 2013 665x297

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.

Nissan LEAF 2013 665x297

It may have had the mildest blink-and-you-miss-it facelift, but underneath the skin there have been plenty of revisions to extend not only the range of Nissan’s pure electric car, but also the appeal. I took a quick drive to find out if it’s worked.

The once maligned Skoda brand has been turned in to a huge triumph thanks to investment from Volkswagen, and one would imagine thoughts of a similar level of success were going through Renault’s mind when they took control of Dacia in 1999.

There are three groups of people in the UK. There’s the majority who have never heard of the Infiniti brand and a small minority who know who they are and what they do. There’s also a group of people who’ve actually bought one, but that number is in the lowContinue Reading

My car will get from a standstill to sixty miles an hour in around five and a half seconds. I know this because it says so in the sales brochure and because it’s got a big noisy engine. It’s also completely useless information.

New cars are the most reliable option, at least in theory. At least if things do go wrong there’s a manufacturer’s warranty ready to put things right, something that’s reassuring when buying a family car. Of course, you pay a lot for a new car and that’s not something everybodyContinue Reading
