• IT'S a Rangie Jim, but not as we know it!

  • THE UTTERLY commendable and now standard practice that Mazda has of seeking novel ways of saving on fuel and CO2 emissions using the pretty good engines that it already has, rather than simply cutting engine size to achieve the same result, has now come to its latest versions of the Mazda3 range.

  • BACK IN the day when the Subaru Impreza seemingly reigned supreme in the rally circuit and was used as a car of choice for those of nefarious intent escaping the polis, the other side of the business was providing a safe, reliable and go anywhere estate car favoured by the likes of vets, rural reps and farmers.

  • WHAT'S BEST - the Range Rover Vogue or the Range Rover Sport?

  • IT MIGHT just be the most exclusive pick-up truck on the planet and a farmer's dream - a Ferrari 412 conversion!

  • EVERYONE seems to be getting in on the act of having a 4 x 4 in their inventory and now the Spanish arm of the VW group, SEAT, says it will bring a compact SUV model to the market in 2016.

  • IT'S CERTAINLY one of my favourite pick-up trucks and it seems that everyone else likes it too - Isuzu's D-Max has just been named 'Pick-up of the Year' for the second consecutive year by a commercial vehicle award scheme.

  • PERHAPS STUNG by the news of Audi adding an RS badge and high performance mechanics to its Q3 SUV, Range Rover has just announced a super model of its own, a performance focussed Evoque.

  • FAMED FOR its large 4 x 4s and the utility Wrangler series, Jeep has announced it wants to compete in the small SUV market with the new Renegade model.

  • IF TATTIES reach £500 per tonne and your grain breaks £200, then you might just be in a position to afford this, the ultimate new 4 x 4, the Bentley SUV - but you will have to order now for delivery in 2016.
