Peugeot 208 GTi Review – Classic Reborn?

14 Sep , 2013  

Recently Peugeot released its latest hot hatch the 208 GTi, as always they hark back and relate it to the 205 GTi. Instantly this sets them up for a fall as the 205 GTi was THE car of that era, perfect for that exact space in time. It won’t ever be reborn or recaptured no […]

Citroen DS3 DSport RED Review – Head turner

4 Aug , 2013  

Citroen released the DS3 back in 2010, but they have recently released a special edition RED model. Based on DSport spec, it adds some extra goodies and a unique exterior look. All in, the RED costs £17,925, you can only get it with the THP 155 engine which gives (as you guessed) 155 HP coupled […]

Suzuki Swift 1.2 SZ-L Review – The sports baby brother

13 Jul , 2013  

Now and then Suzuki bring out limited editions of its much loved Swift, the current incarnation is the SZ-L. It’s aimed at younger drivers, combining frugal running costs with some of the Sports good looks. With a 1.2 engine making an impressive 93 BHP, 0-62 is achieved in 12.3 seconds. It is priced from £10,599 […]

Mercedes A250 Sport “Engineered by AMG” Review – Practical Hot Hatch

19 May , 2013  

Mercedes have recently released a full blown AMG version of its new A class, the A45 AMG, it costs upward of 36K, and has 355BHP. But what about Mercs other hot hatch offering? We recently tested the A250 Sport “Engineered By AMG”, and priced from £28, 800 it’s a darn sight cheaper than the A45 […]

Peugeot 207 THP vs 208 THP

7 Apr , 2013  

New vs. Old is an age old dispute, so I thought I’d settle this one myself. How does the Peugeot 207 compare to the Peugeot 208. Specifically the THP models, which sit one below the top spec GTI. Having the two side by side you immediately notice the 207 looks a bit old fashioned, everything […]

Peugeot 208 THP Review – Pocket Rocket

2 Mar , 2013  

Peugeot released the 208 toward the end of summer last year, but it took a while for the THP (Turbo High Pressure) engine to be unleashed. After a very long wait, we finally got our hands on one! At £17,095 the 208 Feline 156 THP we tested was rather pricey, it sits in league with […]

Renault Clio Review – New Va Va Voom?

23 Feb , 2013  

The brand new Renault Clio has had much hype surrounding it, mainly by Renault themselves. With such lines on the brochure as “The Anatomy of Desire” it has a lot to live up to. We drove the new Clio in its Dynamique MediaNav spec which is one below the range topper. At £16,725 it only […]

Smart fortwo cabrio BRABUS Review – The fast smart?

16 Dec , 2012  

Last month I boldly strapped myself into a Smart fortwo cabrio BRABUS. With 102bhp and 147 NM of torque, you may not think that is particularly scary…..however, it is one of THE scariest cars I have ever driven! At an extortionate £17,930 you can own this exact baby Brabus, but be prepared to purchase a […]

Alfa Romeo Mito Twin Air Review – two cylinders, really?

9 Dec , 2012  

Yes two cylinders, that’s all the engine the little Alfa had. Technically, it’s half an engine. With only 875cc, the 85BHP turbo TwinAir engine costs from £14,150. This to me seems a little pricey considering you are only getting two cylinders. The top-level Distinctive trim adds things like, 17-inch sports alloys, red Brembo callipers, rear […]

Suzuki Swift Sport Review – Hot hatch perfection

20 Nov , 2012  

Ok it may not be a hot hatch in terms of BHP; the Swift Sport comes with 136hp so it’s more of a warm hatch. At £13,500, it’s a bargain for the money. One thing I love about the Swift Sport is the fact that there is only one trim level, no long list of […]

Smart ForTwo Electric Drive Review – the EV future?

6 Oct , 2012  

In a word – yes! I luckily got to drive the upcoming Electric Smart ForTwo yesterday. It was the first time the car has been bought over to the UK in right hand drive spec. It was massive fun to drive! When you think of electric cars, you ultimately think slow…..and limited range. The limited […]

Peugeot 208 Review – The regeneration?

4 Sep , 2012  

The new Peugeot 208 has a lot of competion from the small hatch market, ever more so from the “luxury small hatch” segment. So how does the 208 stack up… The first model I drove was a 1.2 Active, with 85BHP I thought it would feel lacking, but in such a small car it felt […]
