Mitsubishi Evo X Review

November 27, 2014

Mitsubishi Outlander 2014 Review

November 12, 2014

  Perhaps one of the less than beautiful entries in the SUV/crossover segment, the Mitsubishi Outlander is still one of the best cars when it comes to value for money. Leaving aside the appearance, the car focuses more on its utilitarian side and reasonable fuel consumption than on looks. Following the ever increasing interest for(…)

Lexus NX 300h 2014 Review

November 10, 2014

  Undoubtedly the most angular looking car on the market today, the latest offering from Lexus comes in the form of a mid-size SUV. Boasting quite possibly the largest grille ever to be planted on the face of a car, the Lexus NX bets on being different as its main selling point. Built in order(…)

Maserati GranCabrio Review

November 9, 2014

  Besides the elegant styling, the overall dimensions of the car are the most impactful visual element.

Maserati has(…)

Toyota Prius 2014 Review

November 1, 2014

  Quite possibly the most popular hybrid car in the world, the Toyota Prius has reached its third generation.

While being a hybrid(…)

Mercedes C-Class 2014

October 25, 2014

  A new presence on the road, the 2014 Mercedes C-Class exudes enough elegance and has sufficient flair to pose as a more expensive car than it really is.

October 21, 2014

  Arguably one of the most successful models that Nissan has ever produced, the original Nissan Qashqai started the crossover trend, offering a relatively compact and capable car mated to an elevated ride height that stepped into the SUV area, but not completely. Through its peculiar construction, it inspired a niche market that has grown(…)

VW Scirocco 2014 Review

October 19, 2014

  The latest Scirocco to grace our eyes this year is dubbed by Volkswagen itself, the New Scirocco.

We don’t know, but then, they(…)

Nissan GT-R 2014 Review.

October 9, 2014

  Generally, in the realm of performance automobiles, raw muscle comes at a cost; a considerable one, we might add.

Nissan’s foray into the turf generally owned by Corvette, Ferrari, Porsche, Lamborghini, Noble and(…)

Toyota FCV Fuel Cell

October 3, 2014

Also, Toyota has been at the forefront(…)

VW Beetle Sport 2014

September 30, 2014

  For 2014, Volkswagen decided to refresh the image of its popular Beetle. The reason why it did it?

Vauxhall Astra SRi 2014

September 29, 2014

  A swift glance is all it takes for one to fall in love with the lines of this car. The Vauxhall Astra SRi, at present, is one of the best looking cars in its class. Its lines are very dynamic and its silhouette, extremely svelte, resembles that of a super model. Well, perhaps not(…)

Peugeot 208 GTi 2014

September 23, 2014

  The 2014 Peugeot 208 GTi model had a gruelling task: that of filling the shoes of its older sibling, the legendary Peugeot 205 GTi and, not to mention, to clear the memory of the previous two iterations to bear the three letter badge (206 and 207 GTi), which have not been among the most(…)
