Hand Stitched Steering Wheel

Jan 18th
At an awards event, the luxury car category is being announced, featuring Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Range Rover and Mercedes. A guest – someone involved in the high-end luxury car business – pulls a face when the S-Classis mentioned. “That’s not luxury, that’s premium,” they say of a car whose base price can be as high as £192,805 – higher than the…
3.5 Star Mercedes-Benz V-Class

Jan 18th
Mercedes-Benz created the V-class MPV by thoroughly reworked its ageing Viano, which was starting to look a little long in the tooth alongside the newer Ford Tourneo Connect and Volkswagen T6 Caravelle. The latest Mercedes materials, technology and infotainment are present and correct on the V-Class, while the exterior styling has been updated to incorporate the firm's two-blade grille incorporating…
The Smart 4 Star Audi A4

Jan 18th
If you require a long introduction to the A4, you may want to read our last review before continuing on. Something about golf, perhaps – if you’re partial to 18 holes, you’ll probably be familiar with Audi’s best-selling product. The A4 saloon, the estate-shaped Avant and the rebadged A5 coupé are virtually omnipresent in the car parks of the nation’s…
Peugeot Bipper Tepee Cornering

Jan 18th
The Peugeot Bipper Teepee qualifies, arguably, as one of Europe's smallest people carriers since it is just under four metres long yet offers enough knee and headroom in the rear to accommodate – and provide easy access for – a couple of large adults, without unduly compromising the front package, and leaving decent space for four people's luggage. It is obviously related…
Mercedes-Benz CLK63 AMG Black Series

Jan 18th
What is it? Following on from last year’s limited-run SLK55 AMG Black Series, Mercedes has now taken its track day line-up mainstream with the launch of the CLK63 AMG Black Series – a car that AMG says was largely inspired by the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. “It is pretty hardcore. We’ve got down to 7min 52sec on the Nürburgring… and…
2017 Fiat 124 Spider

Jan 18th
The pages of Car and Driver, whether they’re printed on paper or backlit on a screen, are full of unbridled praise for the Mazda MX-5 Miata, a car so exquisitely rendered with such well-balanced, joy-inducing attributes that it’s hard to imagine how it can be improved upon.The 2017 Fiat 124 Spider is rendered on top of the same skeleton as…
2016 BMW 330e Plug-in Hybrid

Jan 18th
A dip in the Toyota Prius pool might elevate your state of environmentally responsible bliss, but surely you’d miss the driving joy that hybrids sacrifice to trim their CO2 footprints. Good news: Salvation has arrived in the form of a plug-in-hybrid sedan that’s actually fun to drive. The 2016 BMW 330e sedan tested here exploits lessons learned from BMW’s i3…
2016 Mazda CX-3

Jan 18th
Deputy editor Dan Pund gazed out from his cubicle into the Car and Driver parking lot, considered the 2016 Mazda CX-3 for a moment, and declared, “It’s just a Pontiac Vibe.”He was making an observation, not hurling an insult. If we weren’t living in the age of the crossover, we—you, me, and the entire driving public—would call the CX-3 a…

2018 Mercedes-AMG GT R Review

Jan 18th
If there’s one thing that’s not in short supply at AMG, it’s confidence. Tobias Moers, Mercedes-AMG’s chairman and CEO, told us in no uncertain terms to compare the latest version of the brand’s sports car, the GT R, against the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. “Our car is faster,” he said. And when we asked where, the reply was as abrupt…
669bhp Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster

Jan 18th
Mental and outrageously expensive. The Cinque Roadster is the run-out version of Zonda supercar, because after more than 10 years of production, Pagani will replace the Zonda next year with an all-new model. Obviously, for anyone that speaks Italian, there will be just five Cinque Roadsters, to add to the five coupe versions, each costing 1.3 million Euro (£1.07m) before…

BMW is preparing to launch a racy 365bhp M car as part of a new 2 SeriesGranCoupé line-up slated to hit UK showrooms in 2019.
