Opel Astra 2015 Review: I know why it was on TopGear

The opportunity for a test comes by when my car goes into its rare mode of ‘repair needed’. This time, it was a ‘long-term’ test as a part wasn’t to arrive until a month later and thankfully, they didn’t have the heart to take the substitute back! Now, it would …

Volkswagen Golf R 2015 review: Razor-sharp

I love smoked salmons but the smoked tail lamps of the new Golf R, even more. With power burstin’ at its seams, you don’t have to be smokin’ fast all the time in the fastest ever Golf R. Just borrowing it in bursts simply adds up to an exhilarating drive.

Nissan Tiida 1.8SV Review: Tadaa!

Much as the headline would sound silly, that would be the way to present the new Tiida hatchback. Nissan has once again played magician in inventing space from nowhere, just as it has done with the Sentra Sedan. After all they are complementing cars. UPSIDE: Stability at high speeds, Upscale …
