The eye-popping Honda Civic Type R GT Review

In Car Reviews, Honda by Tom Scanlan

So, given the fantastic performance actually available from 320PS and 400Nm of torque, what is the point of a car like this? Zero to 62 mph is down at 5.8 seconds. Top speed is 169 mph.

The 2019 Honda Civic 4-Door Reviewed

In Car Reviews, Honda by Tom Scanlan

‘Dare to be different!’ says Honda. Well, you would be if you bought its latest Civic in 4-door form. It’s the first time a Civic has been produced as such for the UK market and will, in fact, most likely be found in relatively small numbers as company, rather than privately-owned, vehicles.

For many months I have wanted to drive the Lexus LC500, the one with the tantalising ads in between Scandi dramas and shows I have watched throughout the year. With a space-age look of difference, abundance of style, comfort and scintillating performance tick all the boxes. On TV it just looked so good, I had to get to drive it. Jonathan Humphrey spends some quality time in the striking flagship Lexus Coupé, the one with a naturally aspirated V8…READ MORE

The really likeable Ford Fiesta Active B&O Play review

In Car Reviews, Ford by Jonathan Humphrey

Not just the best small car I have driven this year. Is this the also the best Fiesta so far? The Fiesta Active is a stylish version of the ever-popular All-New Fiesta. There are some subtle changes to the car to make it the ‘Active’ model, just a tad higher, with increased ride height and a little wider track, rough road suspension and more robust urban look. Jonathan Humphrey hits the roads in the likeable Fiesta Active B&O Play 1.0T Ecoboost…READ MORE
