Drives

We drive the newest cars and tell you what’s what.

And don’t worry: this is a new section! More cars are lined up…


Honda Civic 1.6 i-DTECHonda Civic 1.6 i-DTEC EX

78mpg is achievable. Gawp in astonishment.


Volvo V40 D3Volvo V40 D3

The first ‘propper’ new Volvo, but is it a good drive? Is it still distinct as a Volvo?


Toyota Aygo IceToyota Aygo Ice

Small car, small engine, small money – good fun?


Renault Clio Front LightRenault Clio 0.9 Dynamique MediaNav TCe 90

This has to be good for Renault. Enough of their cars have pulled out of the UK Market because of reduced sales. So can the new Clio help strengthen the brand again?


Peugeot 208 Front LightPeugeot 208 1.2 Allure VTi

Similar engine to the 107, but is it more fun?


Honda Civic Old NewHonda Civic 1.8 ES

Interior: Odd. Exterior: Superb. Engine: Loonatic.


Volvo S60 D2

Un-thrilling, but very good. Oh, and it has a turbo. TURBO.


Peugeot 107

Small car, small engine – so long as you don’t roll it, it’s brilliant fun.


Toyota Prius+

Is the Prius+ a true seven seater, or just a Prius with gimmicky extra seats?


Honda CR-V

The new Honda CR-V on the roads in Germany, and it’s actually pretty good.


Peugeot 208

Does the new 208 recapture the spirit of the old 205?


Lexus GS

Is the new Lexus GS the ultimate wafting German saloon beater? We drive it through Germany and into the Austrian mountains to find out.


Toyota Yaris Hybrid

We drive the new Toyota Yaris Hybrid in Amsterdam to see if this really is the most capable city car on sale.
