Ibiza Toca Review – Sporty and Stylish

By Grace Meldrum • September 13th, 2013 • (0 comments)

I was very excited when I heard I would be reviewing the Ibiza Toca. It’s a sleek, sporty car which I had been eyeing up every time I walked past the showroom – and it certainly didn’t disappoint when I took it home. My first impression of the car was how stylis...

Peugeot 208 Review

By Sarah • August 1st, 2013 • (0 comments)

My initial impression of the Peugeot 208 was that it looked stylish – it has a streamlined shape which gives it an almost sporty appearance and I was keen to test drive it. The first thing I noticed when sitting in the car was that I felt high up, which meant ...

SEAT Mii Review

By tahirliaqat • August 1st, 2013 • (0 comments)

Writing a car review is not one of my usual hobbies, but here I am writing a review for a car which seems very basic to me-it has no modern gadgets and appears rather small. Whilst my first impression of the SEAT Mii is that it is rather basic, as I begin to think abo...

SKODA Octavia

By Nick Caunter • June 13th, 2013 • (0 comments)

Gatwick to Stansted and back at 60MPG!  Not bad for a 5 door family 1.6 diesel with a 7 speed DSG box; not bad at all. The new Octavia is quite a package, especially, in my view, when it comes with the VW group’s brilliant auto gearbox.  At the touch of the ge...

“Hello, it’s Mr…(let’s say, Spooner) we’re back at Gatwick and you have our white Yoda Sketi, we’ll be back soon to collect it” That’s how a recently mis-dialled call to my desk went…I acknowledged the message and ...

SEAT Ibiza 5dr – Sad to see it go!

By Ian Billingham • June 12th, 2013 • (0 comments)

I was sad to see this car go! It took me to Scotland and back, up to Birmingham, sight-seeing and was my faithful friend that never put a foot wrong. From delivery mileage until time of saying goodbye at around 8000 odd miles, it was a great car. It was of the first f...

SEAT Mii – Small, practical and affordable

By Ian Billingham • June 12th, 2013 • (0 comments)

To be honest, every time I have walked past a SEAT Mii, I’ve thought of it as just a car, nothing more, and nothing less. Something you sit in to take you to A to B with no fuss and no hassle. In some respects, it is exactly that, but it’s the first SEAT I [&helli...

SKODA Rapid “It’s a 1.6 right?!”

By Ian Billingham • June 12th, 2013 • (0 comments)

The SKODA Rapid from launch has been a bit of late bloomer by all accounts. It was launched at the same time as the previous Octavia was still being manufactured and didn’t really fit anywhere but now with the launch of the new Octavia, it all begins to make sense! ...

Does the Peugeot GTi provide the Grin Factor?

By Nick Caunter • May 23rd, 2013 • (0 comments)

Back in 1987, somehow I managed to have climbed far enough up the corporate ladder to qualify for my very own choice of company car, within a budget of around £9k. This was a rare privilege as lower down a choice of 2 or 3 cars was the norm.   In those days £9k wo...
