• IT'S quite a big engine for a small car and it packs a fair bit of oomph, but the 2.2-litre diesel fitted to the updated CX-5 middle-of-the-table SUV from Mazda also scores well on thriftiness.

  • I HAVE a feeling that Suzuki has a little winner on its hands with the latest version of the Vitara, especially the punchy ‘S’ version that I had the pleasure of companioning recently.

  • WHILE it might have been little tardy in entering the mid-size SUV market, Mercedes Benz’ latest offering will certainly make the buying public sit up and pay attention as its first contender in this segment is quite some beast.

  • AUDI'S latest generation of the Range Rover rival, the Q7, is a big lump of a car and there is no doubt that it has an on-road presence to match Land Rover's products, but the engineers have managed to maintain that size, but without the weight.

  • IT CERTAINLY looks like an SUV, but don't be fooled into thinking it is one, because the new Renault Kadjar - the French manufacturer's biggest crossover model - comes in a bewildering array of engine size and gearboxes that you might be unsure whether your one will come with four-wheel-drive or not.

  • IT’S MORE than the end of an era … it’s going to be life, Jim, but not as we know it!

  • WHEN YOU head for the hills, it's a good thing to have a trusty steed with you.

  • IT MIGHT only sell one pick-up, but Vauxhall's latest version of its Maloo LSA is certainly the most radical in the UK market.

  • IT LOOKS like it's going to be a 'Marmite' offering from Land Rover - will you or won't you like the new convertible version of the Range Rover Evoque?

  • WHILE VW might not have its troubles to seek with the emissions scandal, don't panic - its popular and very useful Amarok pick-up is now available with a pretty attractive finance deal of £239 per month on either contract hire or finance lease for business use.
