Audi A8 2014

Our Rating 3.5 / 5

Thankfully sci-fi headlights are not the only changes to the updated Audi A8. The team in Ingolstadt has also been playing around under the bonnet to cut emissions.

Our Rating 3 / 5

Same quirky style for Kia's likeable Soul crossover, but this time around it's bigger and of higher quality. Here's our first drive of the new car, on Irish soil.

Mazda 3 Review

Mazda 3 2014

Our Rating 3 / 5

Buyers will be seduced by the gorgeous lines of the new Mazda3 saloon, and it drives as well as it looks, but its relatively high starting price and lack of a smaller diesel engine will keep it off many buyers' shortlists.

Skoda Octavia RS 2014

Our Rating 4.5 / 5

Honda CR-V 2013

Our Rating 3 / 5

Audi A4 Review

Audi A4 2013

Our Rating 3.5 / 5

The A4 has remained a strong seller despite the potential internal cannibalism by other models. This can be attributed to its ability to be a strong performer across many areas. As an overall package, the Audi A4 still beats its biggest rival, the BMW 3 Series.

Hyundai i10 Review

Hyundai i10 2014

Our Rating 5 / 5

The outgoing Hyundai i10 was a decent little car, with the emphasis on little. It was ideally designed for shunting around town, ducking into tight spaces and generally being an exemplary little urban run-around. Here's the new one.

Skoda Octavia Combi 4x4 Review

Skoda Octavia Combi 4x4 2013

Our Rating 3.5 / 5

The Skoda Octavia 4x4 is unlikely to be a volume seller, but for those that do decide to go for one, they will take ownership of a car that will act as an excellent workhorse.
