2014 BMW 420d Coupe Review - Road Magazine


The sporty versions of the BMW 3 series now get their own label – 4 series, mirroring the split between the 5 and 6 series. Indeed just like the 6, the 4 is available in coupe, convertible and Gran Coupe guises. Following on from our initial impressions, we've had time to get acquainted with the two-door coupe in what… » 9/01/14 10:03am 9/01/14 10:03am

My French Crush: First Generation Renault Twingo

Let's be honest, we have all at one stage or another had this little crush on somebody we really, really shouldn't. We're only human after all, right? Sometimes we unexpectedly end up lusting after something we shouldn't. Well, this is exactly what happened to me in Paris with the Mk.1 Renault Twingo. » 8/15/14 8:31am 8/15/14 8:31am

Mazda MX-5: A Good Car, But Not A Great Sports Car

The temple of the MX-5 is hardly suffering from a lack of worshippers. It's crowded with devotees from across the world getting down on their hands and knees to sing to the glory of the 'world's most popular sports car.' Yet it lacks the excitement required to be considered a great. » 8/14/14 10:03am 8/14/14 10:03am

The Morgan 3 Wheeler Is The Most Fun Car Ever


When it comes to laying waste to B-roads, drivers have a vast array of automotive weaponry at their disposal. The market is full of high-tech cars ready and waiting to be the bane of the back road, but if these modern machines are the laser guided missiles of the car world, then the Morgan 3 Wheeler is surely the… » 8/04/14 7:02am 8/04/14 7:02am

Estoque: The Diesel Lamborghini That Never Was

'Radical' and 'Lamborghini' are two words that you would be hard pressed to separate. Lamborghini has always had that unmistakable streak of audacity and an almost child-like silliness coded into its DNA, yet the 2008 Paris motor show saw a Lamborghini concept which was so radical, it called into question the very… » 8/02/14 4:26pm 8/02/14 4:26pm

Do You Want To Be Better Than Your Supercar?


I keep reading about how unwanted the Dodge (can we call it that again?) SRT Viper is in the Supercar world. There is absolutely no doubt that the Sub $100k rival in the form of the C7 Corvette is proving hard to compete with, only looking to get even more dire when the Z06 hits showroom floors. Economics aside, I'm… » 7/27/14 3:05pm 7/27/14 3:05pm

The Worst Car I've Ever Driven: Maserati Ghibli V6 S

The Maserati Ghibli is Maserati's answer to the likes of the Mercedes-Benz E Class, BMW 5-Series, Audi A6 and the Jaguar XF. Maserati's goal with the Ghibli is for it to be the firm's best seller in order to have made 50,000 sales by 2015. Considering Maserati's 100 year heritage, the Ghibli should be solar systems… » 7/25/14 7:24pm 7/25/14 7:24pm

Vauxhall Cascada Convertible Review

The Vauxhall (or Buick?) Cascada Convertible is a four-seater convertible with a lovely exterior and interior. Vauxhall claims it rivals the likes of the Audi A5 Convertible, BMW 3 Series Cabriolet and the Mercedes E-Class Coupe, but does it really? I had the chance to drive one to find out. … » 7/25/14 12:35pm 7/25/14 12:35pm

The Automotive World Doesn’t Have To Be So Complicated

In the past few months, since getting involved with the great crew over at Road Magazine I've found myself looking at Cars and Motorsport in a slightly different light. Don't get me wrong, I've always tried to keep an open mind about the industry, but actually getting involved and sharing my opinion has made me step… » 7/25/14 12:01pm 7/25/14 12:01pm

Are Manufactures Diluting Performance Badges?

I'm sure that you to have clicked on an article recently for the, what feels like, 1000th time, only to see that the Toyota GT86/Subaru BRZ/Scion FR-S has once again been overlooked for a power increase. The latest in this long line of unethical teasing is the release of the Subaru BRZ STI. Those 3 letters at the end… » 6/02/14 12:38pm 6/02/14 12:38pm

Sports Activity Coupe: A Niche Too Far?

At first I liked it, something very different, not seemingly practical, but cool and unexpected. I like it when a major manufacturer goes out on a limb and tries something that doesn't exist on the market and actually follows through with it. I am of course referring to the BMW X6. First displayed in 2007 as a concept… » 5/31/14 11:54am 5/31/14 11:54am
