Mk2 Golf GTI 16V Review

Volkswagen Golf GTI 16V


Classic cars are all the rage so we thought it was about time to review one of the upcoming classics the Volkswagen Golf Mk2 GTI, the hot hatch legend if you will, this particular Mk2 is our very own car, the 16 valve 1.8. The older Golf cars have now become iconic fast catching up with the Beetle etc, they are now a very desirable car, classic and retro and of great interest to the classic car collector.

Now as you would expect this Golf isn't like the new ones as you'd expect, however how different do you think it really is? The answer is extremely different, it's considerably bigger, especially the later models, no driving assists and nowhere near as economical, but a whole lot more fun.

2017 Vauxhall Corsa 1.0T Review

Vauxhall Corsa 1.0L Turbo


Courtesy of Vauxhall we were able to review the Corsa 1.0L Turbo - the small hatch back with a punch, as we found out and it's a review unlike any other as it's our first. 
 
At first glance we were genuinely surprised by the calibre of the car, especially for its size and the market it is targeted at. The first thing you have to ask yourself is why choose the Vauxhall Corsa over say the Fiesta EcoBoost? Well that's what we're here to find out.

Aston Martin Vanquish S: Red Arrows Edition

Aston Martin Vanquish Red Arrows

The Vanquish S is a stunning car in it's own right, however this particular incarnation is a new level of beauty.

Possibly one of the prettiest Aston Martins ever made, in my opinion. The Red Arrow inspired car is one of only ten being commissioned by Aston Martin, all featuring unique exterior and interior styling, all in the name of the RAF's most prestigious aerobatics team.

2017 MG GS Review

MG GS 1.5 Turbo


When you think of MG you are unlikely to think of a reasonably priced crossover built to take on the likes of the Nissan Qashqai and Kia Sportage. However realign your thinking, that's about to change! Over one week we have extensively tested the manual MG GS, covering in excess of 800 miles travelling everywhere from the Wembley Stadium, London to Ambleside in The Lake District. 

2018 Bentley Continental

It will come as no surprise when I say a new Bentley Continental is now on the horizon, after selling tens of thousands of the luxury GT car over the last 14 years. Most popular with the super rich, and firmly establishing a place in just about every premier league footballer’s driveway.
 

The Range Rover Velar

Well it's here, the latest Range Rover family member the Velar.An SUV primarily known as a road car, prices start at around £44,000 and it goes on sale this summer in direct with the Porsche Macan, BMW X4 and X6 and the Mercedes GLE, it's a clever design and neatly fits in between the Evoque and the Range Rover Sport.
