All-New Suzuki Jimny 2019 Review

In Car Reviews, Suzuki by Tom Scanlan

The Jimny’s traditional ladder-chassis design is significant in the car’s ability to do take on the toughest terrain. It has both front and rear rigid axles and the whole car is more strongly-built, being one-and-a-half-times torsionally stiffer than the outgoing twenty-years-old Jimny. Naturally, its ‘Allgrip Pro’ technology gives you low-ratio 4-wheel-drive with a limited slip differential. On the open road, […]

The popular Citroen C3 Aircross

In Car Reviews, Citroen by Paul Beard

Over the years, Citroën has built up a great reputation for producing small to medium sized SUVs and people carriers. Having tried, and thoroughly enjoyed, the C4 Cactus last summer I thought it was time to review its larger sibling, the C3 Aircross, which Citroën launched a bit more than a year ago as a replacement for the C3 Picasso […]

Ford KA+ Active, a mini SUV

In Car Reviews, Ford by Neil Lyndon

What have you got today?” asked my friend as we came out of the pub and stood beside the car that I had driven to our lunch. “It’s a new Ford Ka,” I answered. He squinted at the badge on the back in disbelief. “This is never a Ka!” he said. “The Ka is a little thing like an egg […]

Honda NSX – An everyday supercar

In Car Reviews, Honda by Maggie Barry

IT’S a hybrid folks – but not as we know it. If you want your next hybrid car to be small and practical, look away now. For the Honda NSX is neither of these things – indeed it’s one of the widest cars on the road – but it is the kind of beautiful car you will look at twice, […]

Reviewed the Vauxhall Grandland X SUV

In Car Reviews, Vauxhall by Neil Lyndon

Neil Lyndon drives the latest family SUV from Vauxhall When was the last time anything about a Vauxhall struck you as cool? I can’t remember a single moment since the VX220 – which is going back almost 20 years. Those tailpipes aren’t, of course, entirely original. They bear a distinct resemblance to the arrangement on the rear end of the latest generation […]

Reviewed the Peugeot 5008 and the Citroen C3 Aircross

In Car Reviews, Citroen, Peugeot by Neil Lyndon

Our local town is home to one of the most acclaimed and expensive private schools in Scotland. At school run times, therefore, the main street is like a Concours d’Elégance for expensive, show-offy cars. Maseratis vie with Teslas. In this elevated company, a Peugeot or a Citroen would be expected to look like a poor cousin. But, when I was […]

The improved All-New Dacia Duster

In Car Reviews, Dacia by Neil Lyndon

Neil Lyndon drives the All-New Dacia Duster A considerable measure of the scuzziness that infected the original Dacia Duster has been eliminated from the new model. Oddly enough, however, I am not entirely convinced that the car is all the better for the changes. The original Duster – launched in the UK in 2013 – majored on being basic in the […]

Reviewed the universally praised Volvo XC40 SUV

In Car Reviews, Volvo by Neil Lyndon

Neil Lyndon enjoys the Volvo XC40 so much he wants one Amid all the acclamation, however, one quality of this splendid car seems to have been overlooked: a week with an XC40 proves that it has an unexpected character as a cliché-killer. Not only does it disprove the hoary notion that absence makes the heart grow fonder; but it also […]
