Nissan Micra N-Sport, take the long way home

In Car Reviews, Nissan by Kieran Bicknell

The humble Nissan Micra; Long known as the first car of choice for newly-passed teenagers or a cheap runabout for your grandma, the Nissan Micra N-sport edition is the latest in a line of models offered, to move the Micra away from these stereotypes and towards the modern supermini and sporty-hatch markets. Does it succeed where previous generations have perhaps …

Honda CR-V EX Hybrid AWD, a superbly practical SUV

In Car Reviews, Honda by Kieran Bicknell

Honda CR-V – What a wonderful surprise I’ve said before about my love for driving SUVs, and immediately the first thing I did upon taking delivery of the Honda CR-V was check out the interior. Safe to say, I was definitely impressed. The EX sits at the top of Honda’s model range, and it certainly shows. Plenty of leather surfaces …

The Honda Jazz EX, easy to live with

In Car Reviews, Honda by Kieran Bicknell

I’ll readily admit, I was a little sceptical of the new Jazz. After a week of living with it, however, I have a new understanding of why customers buy them in their droves. That’s not to say the Jazz is without its faults, however, though in reality, the benefits far outweigh the pitfalls. Whilst I had the Jazz, I was …

The Škoda Karoq Edition, a rather sensible SUV

In Car Reviews, Skoda by Kieran Bicknell

Family SUVs can be dull, dreary things these days, but thankfully you have offerings such as the Škoda Karoq Edition. The Karoq sits smack-bang in the middle of the Škoda SUV line up, offering more space and size than the Kamiq (read our review), but below the sheer size (and with two less seats) than the large Kodiaq (read our …

Škoda Kodiaq SE L, what’s not to like?

In Car Reviews, Skoda by Kieran Bicknell

I have to admit that I have positively no need whatsoever for a seven-seat vehicle in my life, but after spending a week with the Škoda Kodiaq SE L, I’m wondering if there is anyway I can justify it. Having had a run of very good-looking but somewhat rough-riding cars with large alloys and low- profile tires, I was relieved …

The Honda E Review / First UK Drives

In Car Reviews, First Drives, Honda by Kieran Bicknell

Cheeky, Charming, Characterful – These are all words that could be used to perfectly describe the all-new Honda E. It’s cheeky charming aside, the Honda E is a very capable city car indeed. Its diminutive size makes it perfect for parking, while the front and rear wheels have been pushed as far outwards as possible, meaning the car has a …

One of the best, the Škoda Kamiq Monte Carlo

In Car Reviews, Skoda by Kieran Bicknell

Fun, stylish and tech-y: The Kamiq Monte Carlo is the cream of Škodas’ baby SUV crop. Let’s start with how it looks; As much as I appreciated the big, utilitarian looks of the Kodiaq, the Kamiq is far more aesthetically easy on the eye, with well-sized proportions and it looks absolutely fantastic even when standing still. For a small SUV …

The Suzuki Swift Sport, sublime and simple

In Car Reviews, Suzuki by Kieran Bicknell

It’s hard to translate into words the sheer childlike enjoyment that I’ve experienced during my time with the Suzuki Swift Sport. I’ll admit, I had been rather excited for the delivery day since it was confirmed as I’d heard so many good things about both generations of the Swift; And boy, oh boy, did it deliver on my expectations. It’s …
