Jeep Compass

We get to grips with the newest member of the Jeep family – the mid-sized Compass SUV… What is it? The all-new Jeep Compass has the unenviable task of taking on everything from the Nissan Qashqai, Skoda Karoq, Kia Sportage and Seat Ateca to the Volkswagen Tiguan, Peugeot 3008 and …

Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross review

Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross review

Launching a new SUV that stands out from the crowd is no mean feat, and the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is one such car. With its sporty coupe-like profile and unusual rear, complete with split-screen spoiler, there’s no mistaking it. It’s a good car too, but I can’t help feeling that …

Subaru XV review

Subaru XV review

Subaru is an automotive hidden gem in the UK. As a maker of durable, remarkably capable 4x4s, with a gold-plated history in rallying, it’s surprising to find that just 2,665 examples were sold in 2017. To put that into context, Subaru shifted a record 647,956 vehicles in America last year …

SEAT may have been a little late to the party when it comes to having an SUV in the range, but the good news is that it’s been worth the wait. The Ateca isn’t just a bit of rugged eye candy, it’s a very capable crossover – and it has …

Kia Rio review

Kia Rio review

Some cars that are seemingly launched without huge fanfare turn out to be surprisingly good. The all-new Kia Rio is just such a vehicle. Now in its fourth generation, the Rio has the unenviable task of doing battle in a sector, dominated by Britain’s best-selling car for the past eight …

Honda HR-V review

Honda has at last filled a gaping hole in its range with the new HR-V compact crossover. In the late ’90s, Honda (arguably) launched the sector with the funky and original HR-V. However, since 2006 it’s been without a contender. Honda may be late to the new party, but now …
