    The girl in Squadrone Rosso's "Gonna" thread was very lucky. I just noticed on the front page of Business Car a piece on these cars needing upgrades later this year as they have been downgraded by NCAP's more stringent testing to only 3 stars because of disappointing results in the latest crash...

    Hi all, The old Granny is plodding around town in a Daihatsu Sirion 1.3 16v. Its 4 years old, and done just over 4k miles. She literally drives a couple of miles every other day or so. Back in the summer, the car wouldn't start one morning. The battery was flat. I jumped it from Bella, and she...

    This weekend I hired out an Aygo. Having had a Yaris the week before my expectations were quite low; however, I must confessI quite liked it. Sure, it was basic inside, but it was quite Yaris - which is explained by the fact it is lighter and has the same engine. Like the Yaris it seemed...

    Working at Donington Park at the moment with Toyota launching the GT86 to the dealer network This morning saw me park my GTV next to one of them and it really brought home how much I prefer the Alfa styling, lots of unnecessary swage lines, curves, slashes all combine to make it look...

    Guys, I'm quite intrigued by McLaren's little T25/T27 cars, their concept and the transport and manufacturing problems they're trying to solve. Do you think these two Toyota concepts are based on them? Three abreast-seating, hinged canopy, same dimensions, same wheel at each corner stance...

    And this is not an April's fools joke. Driving home today, my GTA started flashing all kinds of warning lights: ASR, ABS, stop, go to dealer etc. I stopped, thinking it was some electrical issue (like the airbag warning light). Turn of ignition, start again and everything is ok: NOT :tut...

    Of course I will probably get lynched for what I am about to say but what the hell! The replacement for my 159SW was collected on Thursday and I think I am in love. I was quite worried about whether we would take to the car and after only 5 days we are completely smitten. There are so many cool...

    Toyota fleet loaned me one for three days so here's a mini review of this "new" C-segment hatchback. Let's start outside. It is a typical 5 door hatch, similar in size and general design to most of the targets it is up against in the fleet and small family market. I have to say, while it isn't...
