Long Term Report 2019 – SEAT Tarraco Xcellence 2.0 TDI 4Drive DSG Automatic

Report 2 First I took charge of Sue Baker’s Arona. Then I swapped that for an Ibiza. This was followed by an Alhambra. And now I appear to have taken custody of a Tarraco. My quest to monopolise the SEAT

Long Term Report 2019 – Ford Focus Estate ST-Line X 2.0 EcoBlue Automatic

Report 3 As a family that loves SUVs, I expected there to be some disappointment and opposition when the Focus arrived. Passengers had got used to the commanding stance, as well as the roominess of the Kuga’s cabin and boot.

Long Term Report 2019 – Audi A6 Avant S line 50 TDI Quattro

Report 7 What would you do if you found yourself at a beautiful rally school, with access to a rally driving instructor, the keys to an Audi A6 quattro and the knowledge that you needed some cool photos for the

Long Term Report 2019 – Skoda Karoq SE L 1.6 TDI DSG Automatic

Final Report Just as with the Suzuki Swift Hybrid I ran last summer for Diesel Car and Eco Car, I had very little experience of ‘modern’ Skodas before the arrival of the Karoq. A Citigo and Fabia had both impressed

Long Term Report 2019 – Peugeot 508 GT Line 2.0 BlueHDi 160

Report 5 If the 508 had a rest last month, it’s certainly made up for it of late. What with a busy summer of work trips and weekends away, I seem to have piled miles on to our French fastback.

Long Term Report 2019 – Kia ProCeed GT-Line 1.6 CRDi

Report 6 I think we’re at a point where everyone should stop being so shocked that Kia are capable of designing a good-looking car. At least once a week the ProCeed attracts positive comments from passers-by, but usually with the caveat

Long Term Report 2019 – Land Rover Discovery Sport HSE SD4 Automatic

Long Term Report 2019 – Volvo V60 D3 R-Design Pro Automatic

Long Term Report 2019 – Citroen C4 Cactus Flair BlueHDi 100

Final Report With a C4 Cactus-shaped hole in my life, I’m now a little sad. I’ve been dismissive of the original Cactus for looking contrived and favouring form over function. However, contrary to its many initial critics, I warmed to

Long Term Report 2019 – Mazda6 Tourer GT Sport Nav+

Report 11 I mentioned in an early update that the Mazda6 Tourer is almost refreshingly devoid of settings you can fiddle with. Hop in the car, press the engine start button and that’s it – the car is ready to be

Long Term Report 2019 – Honda Civic EX 1.6 i-DTEC Automatic

First Report When I first mentioned that I’d be getting a Civic Saloon, my wife’s first reaction was “they make a saloon version?” It’s a fair question, as the market for saloon cars in the UK has collapsed, and it

Long Term Report 2019 – Renault Kadjar S Edition Blue dCi 115

Report 11 Month two of crossover ownership can be the trickiest. The honeymoon’s over, it’s time to get on with domestic duties, and before you know it, you’re slowing down on the bypass by that sports car dealership, wondering what

Long Term Report 2019 – Land Rover Discovery Sport HSE SD4 Automatic

Report 3 Our family has long had a soft spot for Land Rovers. So much so that my son’s driveway has space for two of them: a well-liked Freelander and a classic Defender. So it’s fun to point the long-termer

Long Term Report 2019 – Kia ProCeed GT-Line 1.6 CRDi

Report 5 Sandbanks, on the south coast of England, is one of the most desirable places to live in the world, if you believe the various guides that have voted it so. The stretch of land that skirts the natural
