  •  Kia Optima PHEV
    First Drive
    25 August 2016
    Plug-in hybrid Optima is a practical, tax-efficient PHEV that undercuts rivals and fulfils its main remit well, but keen drivers need not apply
  • Kia Optima Sportwagon
    First Drive
    25 August 2016

  • Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4 Spyder
    First Drive

  • Porsche Panamera 4S Diesel
    First Drive
    23 August 2016
