2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Jan 19th
It has been three years since Jeep dramatically updated its Grand Cherokee, delivering a refined flagship with style and substance constructed on a chassis shared in large part with the Mercedes-Benz M-class. Jeep would be the first to admit that, in the past, it would slide out a new model and then ignore it for five years. No longer. The…
2017 Audi SQ7 TDI Diesel Review

Jan 19th
Not long ago, platform sharing was practically synonymous with old-fashioned badge engineering, that dark period when the only engineering effort automakers put into distinguishing their identikit models went to the formulation of the adhesive required to hold on their brand insignia. These days, platforms are all about shades of gray. Automakers encourage us to think in terms of the sort…
2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE-class

Jan 19th
Mercedes has euthanized the M-class. Sort of. At least the name is dead. Last year, the third-generation M-class, a.k.a. the ML, was redecorated and rechristened the GLE. The M-class name was worth shedding. Mercedes-Benz’s M-class SUV always seemed like a sop to the U.S. market. Almost two decades ago, it arrived as an amorphous blob on 16-inch wheels that was…
Lee Iacocca Mustang

Jan 19th
A coach-built Ford Mustang is to be sold in strictly limited numbers in honour of Lee Iacocca, who is widely known as the “father of the Mustang”. The 84-year-old was president of the Ford division when the Mustang was launched. The body of the car – called as the 2009 1/2 Iacocca 45th Anniversary Edition Ford Mustang because it is…
BMW I5 SUV As Imagined By Autocar

Jan 19th
A BMW i5 SUV is strongly tipped to be the firm’s next all-new all-electric model, but it is not scheduled for launch until 2021. Earlier this year, Harald Krüger, chairman of the board of management at BMW AG, revealed that the next BMW i product would be launched in 2021, dubbing it ‘i Next’. But he declined to elaborate beyond…
Porsche 718 Boxster S Vs Lotus Elise

Jan 19th
The previous Porsche Boxster, barely old enough for the grave, was notoriously great. The first had been great enough to save Porsche; the outgoing one was great enough for us to briefly scrap the top five list in which it appeared, so distant was it from whichever also-ran we considered installing in second place.I still remember driving it at launch in…
Honda Civic Sport

Jan 19th
What is it? For the past 10 years, the Honda Civic has provided a handy reference point for anyone shopping for a new hatchback. Family five-doors simply haven’t come any more wonderfully weird. When the eighth-generation Civic was unveiled in 2006, it challenged accepted norms on mechanical layout, as well as what constituted appealing styling and a tolerably comfortable ride…
1.3-litre Chrysler Ypsilon Diesel Engine

Jan 19th
The Chrysler Ypsilon is the smallest of the new breed of Italian-built Lancias, uniquely badged as Chryslers for the UK because Fiat would rather not confuse, upset or frighten us by re-launching Lancia here having killed it off years ago. More specifically, the Ypsilon is an ultra-compact five-door supermini, only 3.8 metres long but quite tall so it’s surprisingly credible…
Toyota Blade Master-G

Jan 19th
What is it? Imagine a Toyota Auris, spiffed up, sportified a touch and with a burbling 3.5 V6 nestling under the bonnet. That's what this is, and in its native Japan it's known as the Toyota Blade Master-G. A VW Golf-style premium hatch that’s several times smoother, faster and more interesting than the capable but not class-leading Auris, this Blade…
Ford Fiesta ST200

Fewer than 1000 examples of the hotter ST are expected to be produced, although an exact number is yet to be revealed. Read our Ford Fiesta ST200 review here The ST200 hot hatch uses a tuned…
Porsche 996 GT3 Vs Cayman S

Jan 19th
Autocar’s Richard Bremner has pitted the Porsche 996 GT3 against the recently-upgraded Porsche Cayman S in a new versus used test. See the Porsche 911 GT3 versus Cayman S pics The Cayman will cost you £45,499 before options, while a 1999-2005 GT3 can be had from £35,000 for a Mk1 and £45k for a tidy Mk2. Both are unadulterated driver’s…
2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Jan 19th
Jeep’s current-generation Grand Cherokee SUV has been such a success that it probably didn’t need an update to keep things rolling, but one arrived for 2014 anyway. We aren’t complaining, what with the ’14 GC’s new eight-speed automatic transmission, refined interior, and even more handsome sheetmetal. We have previously driven the Hemi V-8, put the new V-6 diesel in a…
