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

Report 7 The Focus has a long list of attributes, but one of my favourites – and I realise this comes down to individual taste – is the bright blue paintwork that stands out in a car park full of

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

Final Report Where did more than half a year go? The months seem to have flown past since the handsome hunk of Land Rover Discovery Sport arrived on the Our Cars fleet, and was happily entrusted to my care. It

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

Final Report That thing your parents told you about making a good first impression with strangers? It turns out this also applies to cars. I’ve already observed that the V60 is a handsome beast. And since then I’ve caught myself

Kia XCeed 3 1.6 CRDi

First Report Have you seen the television advert for the new XCeed? I have and thought “uh oh”. The car itself appears on screen just a handful of times, in rapidly edited shots, with the main focus instead on the

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

Report 4 Look through every review of a Honda, and it’s almost certainly going to mention the infotainment system. From Jazz to NSX, it’s the same system and, quite frankly, it’s awful. It’s got an entirely unintuitive interface, options placed

Long Term Report 2019 – Citroën C5 Aircross Flair Plus BlueHDi 130 Automatic

Report 3 Whenever a car is replaced or facelifted nowadays, the big change from what went before is invariably a raft of driver assistance systems, such as autonomous emergency braking, lane keep assist, blind spot warning and more. Anything that

Long Term Report 2019 – Skoda Scala SE 1.6 TDI

Report 2 No sooner had the Skoda Scala arrived, it was called into duty for more motorway driving than I’d done all year. This at first seemed a bit unfortunate. After all, the Mazda6 Tourer I’d just given back was

Long Term Report 2019 – Skoda Scala SE 1.6 TDI

First Report Skoda’s model range has changed at an alarming rate over the past few years, so as well as stalwarts like the Fabia, Octavia and Superb, there’s now a host of new names like Karoq, Kodiaq and Scala in

Long Term Report 2019 – Citroën C5 Aircross Flair Plus BlueHDi 130 Automatic

Report 2 It’s rare for me to like a car less as time goes on, because I tend to warm to pretty much anything the more miles I do. So the fact that I rather liked our C5 Aircross from

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

Report 3 How much is too much? Do we need nearly 500 TV channels to choose from? I barely have time to watch just one. Is it necessary for there to be almost 2,000 Greggs stores in the country? Since

60 second On Test Report 2019 – Citroën C4 Cactus Flair BlueHDi 120 Automatic

One of the biggest attributes of the original C4 Cactus was its simplicity. And even though the facelifted car has gone more mainstream and had one of its biggest and quirkiest charms watered down, with smaller Airbumps, it still has

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

Report 5 My long-term Focus is continuing to win over friends thanks to its blend of excellent road manners, high equipment levels and spaciousness. As an example, my sister-in-law currently runs a Nissan Qashqai as a company car, but has

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

Report 7 Have you noticed the nights are drawing in? As our scorching summer of record temperatures and sunny bank holidays begins to release its grip on our green and pleasant land, nippy evenings and gusty winds set in. However,

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

Report 2 Ford used to make a saloon version of the Focus, known to many as the Ford Fogey, thanks to the softened ride that was designed to appeal to a more mature audience. Honda’s done exactly the same with

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

Report 5 With the Citroën C4 Cactus now gone, I find myself the custodian of Richard Dredge’s Volvo V60 for the remainder of its time on the fleet. Moving up in the world does have its perks. The V60 is
