Range Rover Evoque

The Range Rover Evoque draws heavily on style as a selling point, but also possesses the substance to back it up

Oh dear - what a dull dull year again!!! Really all those lucky chaps ( and a few lasses) enjoying themselves warming bums on exitic seats and travelling the globe and playing hooligan FOC and all you can come up with is this lot of dreary rubbish!!! WOW.. I want my money back!!!!

Citroen DS5 - Being French it will rattle, fall slowly to pieces, is made of inferior materials

Panda - Lets face it this is not a CAR we would dream of or especially want

VW UP - I would say UP yours but its rude - I prefer their really innovative cigar !!

Evoque - A name pinched from Toyota I believe, seen a few - doesnt do anything 4 me

Focus - We all know they have saved money by tweeks rather than new model ground up

Yaris - Originally designed by a Greek - and you know what happened to them dont we!

Ampera - lol lol lol lol - this will be the most expensive per mile car you ever can buy
