This is a very serious car, then, but worth £80,000? Smile In truth it’s not a bad price for a machine that is a) so fast; and b) ready to race in its own series. That Caterham has already sold 20 of the 25 it planned to build this year suggests that it’s on to a winner.Smile

    Not the driver’s car many would hope from any car wearing the Jaguar badge, but the E-Pace is an attractive and interesting addition to the compact premium SUV ranks
  • Subaru Impreza

    17 November 2017

    Seat is on a roll but can the Arona, its new junior SUV, cut it in such an ultra-competitive class?
