    2014 Peugeot 308 SW exterior front left static

    Love is an emotion not generally associated with the humble estate car – but it’s certainly apt for the Peugeot 308 SW. A variant of the equally loved Peugeot 308 hatchback, the estate model is a long and sleek looking car with more than a touch of class. Carrying the same cabin as the...

    2014 Citroen Grand C4 Picasso exterior front right static

    Imagine it, three small children in baby seats lulled to sleep in the back of the car, your other half balmed out on a heated recliner massage seat beside you, and you, the driver, also getting the benefit of a heated back massage. You don’t need to imagine it – Citroën has made it...

    2014 SsangYong Rexton W exterior front right static

    If you ever had designs on being a member of the Secret Service (well, driving one of their cars anyway), then the SsangYong Rexton W is for you. With its blacked out rear windows, high and imposing structure, the Rexton W is an attractive, American-looking SUV and really cuts a dash. Inside, the cabin...

    2014 Seat Leon Cupra 280 exterior left front static

    When I got my hands on the Seat Cupra 280, the test car was just eight weeks old – and already had nearly 6,500km on the clock – I knew it must be good. The Cupra was the first hot hatch I had ever driven and so holds a special place in my heart....

    Two more to desire from Citroën DS3 range

    2014 Citroen DS3 Faubourg Addict exterior right front static

    The Citroën DS3 is one of the snazziest looking compact hatchbacks on the market at the moment and is a personal favourite. So, when not one but two eye-catching variants landed on my desk lately (not literally, obviously), I was delighted. The DS3 in its basic embodiment is a trendy looking three-door, four-seat city...

    Design nouse in practical Opel Meriva

    2014 Opel Meriva exterior front right

    I’ve always loved the rear doors in the Opel Meriva. It’s perhaps an unusual statement but these doors open backwards, like a traditional London cab. Not only is it a quirky design feature, there is practicality behind it as well – opening doors that way makes it easier to load baby seats and also...

    Renault Zoe’s a city girl at heart

    2014 Renault Zoe exterior front right

    The Renault Zoe supermini is the friendly face of the future. A 100 per cent electric vehicle, unlike a hybrid, there’s no petrol/diesel engine to kick in. From the outside, this five-door hatchback looks very much like a normal car – except that there’s no fuel cap. The charge point is neatly hidden away...

    Sporty Seat Leon ST FR a step ahead

    2014 Seat Leon ST FR exterior front right static

    It looks like a normal car, it feels like a normal car but the new Seat Leon ST FR is not a normal car. Not only is it a fast, head-turningly attractive sporty estate model, it’s also another step closer to a self driving car, with the help of the combined optional Lane Assist...
