2009 Subaru Legacy | new car review

The Legacy is a mid-sized sedan that has never really stood out. This is not necessarily a bad thing – it’s considered by many to be a fine choice for those that want a comfortable, well-made car, with plenty of on-road performance, but that won’t attract attention. Whether such attributes…

2009 Skoda Superb | new car review

The Superb is Skoda’s flagship model and is a full size executive sedan which offers a lot of luxury and comfort at a bargain basement price. The Superb is based on parent firm Volkswagen’s Passat platform which is extended by ten centimetres to offer immense interior space. The Superb is…

2009 Renault Safrane | new car review

The Renault Safrane is a very obvious choice for those that care more for value for money than they care for the brand name behind their new car. With the Renault Safrane you get some very impressive interior space and comfort, all wrapped-up in a car that really isn’t that…

2009 Kia Optima | new car review

What was once at the top of the Kia model range; the Optima, is now second in command, after the Opirus. Perhaps Kia used their ‘biggest-sounding car name’ a bit early on in proceedings, for surely the Opirus should be called the Optima? But hey, never mind. The really good…

2009 Peugeot 607 | new car review

In an age where car models rarely last longer than five years, the 607 is verging on antique status. It first went on sale in 1999 and had a facelift in 2004. Nevertheless, it retains fans among the great and powerful – French president Nicolas Sarkozy used the executive saloon…

2009 Chrysler 300C | new car review

The 2009 Chrysler 300C made quite a serious splash and totally refreshed the way the car-buying public looked at big American cars.…

2009 Mercury Montego | new car review

Like the Milan, the Mercury Montego suffers a little from a lack of exposure in the Middle East, and if consumers don’t know about a specific car they are unlikely to investigate it with a view to purchasing. Mercury need to do some more focused marketing in the Middle East…

2009 Mazda6 | new car review

The Mazda6 could be seen to be the bigger brother of the smaller Mazda3, sharing as it does, much of the same curving and rounded design flare of its smaller sibling, as well as much of the enjoyable driving attributes, too. The funky Mazda6 is one of the best midsize…

2009 Lincoln Town Car | new car review

They sure don’t make ‘em like they used to, and with the world running low on oil, they probably won’t make them like this for much longer. The Lincoln Town Car is becoming shockingly out of date in this day and age – it’s just a little too old, too…

2007 Volkswagen Passat | new car review

The long-lived Passat (33 years this year and counting!) received its most recent makeover in 2005, so don’t expect any surprises this year. Those with long memories will realise that this is the sixth generation Passat – and unquestionably the best, carving out a serious niche for the company in…
