Get a buzz out of going green, but think that electric cars aren’t ample enough for a family? We look at the current range of EVs to find the positives…

Has Renault accidentally built a Porsche 911 rival, or is it just a different take on the city car?

The best-selling hatchback has seemingly always been the Volkswagen Golf, but what do you think the second best seller across Europe was back in 2005?

Three months can be a long time when you’re trying to run a 17-year old French hatchback, but time has been relatively kind to the Twingo since the last long-term update. The first task was to get it through an MOT, something that can be surprisingly difficult with a carContinue Reading

Renault Twingo 1998 620x277

Running a car on a tight budget is not a difficult thing to do. It’s something I make a hobby of (I know…) and have got through a long list of incredibly undesirable and unreliable cars, from a Renault Safrane to a Lancia Dedra. People do tend to ask howContinue Reading

Renault has revealed their new Twingo, and it’s quite a departure from the norm. Sharing its underpinnings with the forthcoming Smart ForTwo, the Twingo switches to a rear-engined layout with rear-wheel drive. Positioning the engine at the rear makes a significant difference to a city car, freeing up space atContinue Reading

Renault Trafic and Vauxhall Vivaro Teaser 2014 665x297

Renault and Vauxhall have revealed details of their new joint van range, with significant styling differences between the two. Under the skin however, both the new Renault Trafic and Vauxhall Vivaro are identical. Each will apparently include ultra-modern technologies and equipment, with more economical and higher performance engines that benefitContinue 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

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.

Peugeot 2008 2013 665x297

Peugeot’s 208 has sold like the proverbial hotcake since launch last year, with 35,000 of the cars now cruising around Britain’s roads. The French manufacturer is now hoping to keep that momentum going with a jacked-up crossover variant, the 2008.

Vauxhall VXR8 Exhaust 2008 665x297

Last week I declared that muscle cars might be facing an early death. Having something as iconic as a Ford Mustang fitted with a four-cylinder engine, no matter how many turbochargers are bolted on, simply won’t do.
