    If you like to be different and you’re in the market for a family hatchback, then the new Citroen C4 Cactus is worth checking out. The Cactus has its genesis in a concept car, and the production model very much has a concept feel about it. With contrasting customisable coloured ‘airbumps’ on the door...

    2014 Peugeot RCZ R exterior front left static

    The Peugeot RCZ is a very flash car, its sibling, the RCZ R is even flashier. The RCZ has long been one of my favourite sports cars, so I wasn’t quite sure how I’d take to the faster, more powerful R model. Would it ruin my memory of the beautiful Batmobile? I’m delighted to...

    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...

    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 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....

    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...
