Dacia Duster

My Dacia Duster test car came in what was described as an Altai Green colour. I have always heard that green is supposed to be an unlucky colour for a car, but this was a different green to anything I had seen previously and I was curious about what Altai meant. So only one thing to do, go to our friend Google. Well Altai is a mountain range in Asia on the border between Russia and Mongolia. Dacia choose an appropriate name because...

Citroen Spacetourer

Some cars are well named, like the Skoda Superb, super by name, superb by nature. Recently I drove another appropriately named motor the Citroen Spacetourer. It can be an eight or nine-seater and it certainly has oodles of space. With families getting smaller all the time you won’t find many what you might call ‘regular’ family drivers buying one, but it would I think, be ideal for taxi or celebrity type work. The Spacetourer is based...

Audi A4

 The end of each year is also a new beginning and can also be a popular time for people trying to lose weight, but very often those resolutions don’t last very long. Weight is easier to control when you are working on a new car and Audi say the weight of their revamped A4 has been reduced by 110 kg. As with humans less weight in a car means better economy and lower running costs. Audi claim that you should be able to get up to 72 mpg....

Audi A3 Sportback 1.4 Tfsi

Somehow I was half-expecting to pick up a two-door car when I went to Sandyford to pick up the Audi A3 recently. But I was pleasantly surprised to pick up a four-door automatic version, which was good news because if you are a regular reader you will know that there are no fans of two-door cars in our house. When Audi introduced the A3 twenty years ago it was only produced as a two-door hatchback to present a more sporty image than...
