Mazda MX-5 Road test by Steve Rogers

MAZDA has beefed up the world’s favourite sports car…but don’t get too excited. The MX-5 has been given a power boost, an extra 23bhp for the top of the range two-litre, yet it is the sound rather than the extra grunt that provides most of the thrills. This is a car that makes a big […]

Nissan X-Trail road test by Steve Rogers

FIRST thought when I looked at the front of the Nissan X-Trail was the film Gladiator. Yes, strange one that but the facelifted X-Trail has got that aggressive, ready for combat look about it. It was the thick, gleaming chrome draped across its nose which brought to mind Russell Crowe kitted out in his shiny […]

THE mark of a good tow car is forgetting you are towing. Granted my caravan is a lightweight at 1350kg but is more than seven metres long so it is hardly a tiddler. My own Renault Kadjar with its 1.6 litre diesel does an admirable job but I really feel the difference with a more […]

Toyota Yaris road test by Steve Rogers

IF we are to believe what we hear nearly all of us will be driving hybrid or electric within 10 years. Volvo is really going for it saying every new car from 2019 will be electrified. The numbers of hybrid and electric cars has certainly shifted up a gear in the last 12 months with […]

Suzuki Vitara road test by Steve Rogers
