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

Report 4 Our C5 Aircross has been doing a sterling job of hauling bodies lately. No, I haven’t moved into the undertaking business, as thankfully I’m talking about live bodies, and specifically friends who have been accompanying me on weekends

Long Term Report 2020 Kia XCeed 3 1.6 CRDi

Report 2 No, your eyes don’t deceive you, in stark contrast to my typically stratospheric mileage, the XCeed has covered a mere 200 miles this month. Why? Because the XCeed has a clutch pedal. Ordinarily I’m a big fan of

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

Report 5 I have to admit to an ocean-going level of numptiness this month. I didn’t do what my mother-in-law did with her diesel – brim it with petrol and then pay £250 to have it drained straight back out. No,

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

Report 8 Despite being full of praise for the staff at Howards Peugeot in Weston-Super-Mare just last month, I’d rather hoped I wouldn’t have to see them again. That isn’t an indictment of their service or their personalities, but I

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

Report 5 Along road trip is a chance to develop an intimate understanding of a car. While a lengthy drive is many people’s idea of hell, I relish the opportunity to spend some quality time behind the wheel, which is

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
