New car reviews

Lexus RC F test drive

The Lexus RC F is very much an old-school machine, with a 5.0-litre V8 engine that is something to behold in an era of turbocharging and electrification.

Peugeot 2008 test drive

There’s much to like about the new Peugeot 2008. It drives well enough, has more than enough equipment and offers a spacious interior for this size of car.

Skoda Superb Estate test drive

This facelift may only bring marginal changes to the Skoda Superb, but with a fresher look and additional kit, it's helped to strengthen it further.

Mazda CX-30 review

The Mazda CX-30 may not be much smaller than a CX-5 or larger than a CX-3, but it's the best of all worlds with stylish looks and impressive quality.

Fiat 500 Hybrid test drive

The Fiat 500 Hybrid (actually a mild hybrid) is smooth and efficient, but it offers limited performance and is little better than the regular petrol model.
