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

Long Term Report 2019 – Mazda6 Tourer GT Sport Nav+

Report 8 No epic road trips or digging the Mazda out of snow drifts this month, but it has carried on plugging away at my affections all the same. Its boot is never out of use, with one of the

Long Term Report 2019 – Citroen C4 Cactus Flair BlueHDi 100

Report 7 I knew it. When I previously grumbled about the C4 Cactus’ modest hot weather cabin ventilation performance, I didn’t think I’d experience the reality so soon after closing the lid on my laptop. However, with the cabin temperature reading

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

Long Term Report 2019 – Dacia Duster Comfort Blue dCi 115 4×2

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

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

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

Long Term Report 2019 – SEAT Alhambra Xcellence 2.0 TDI DSG Automatic

Report 3 This month I have been coasting through life. That’s not to say that I’ve been taking it easy, but instead, I’ve been enjoying the benefits of the coasting function in the SEAT Alhambra. In simple terms, when you
