Car Reviews

Skoda Fabia

The Skoda Fabia has always been a likeable car, and thanks to its use of Volkswagen Group technology it’s always been a very competent one too

Audi A3

If you’re looking to impress your pupils, a posh badge will do the trick, and in the affordable world Audi’s four-ringed badge is as posh as they come

Peugeot 2008

Sharper looks make the 2008 appear more modern but ultimately this is still just a high-riding supermini, which is why it might be just the job for your pupils

Mini Cooper

The original Mini was the world’s first classless car and the 21st century edition is no different thanks to the opportunity to choose pretty much whatever spec you want, from cheap to very costly

Honda Jazz

If you’re a typical ADI in that you have one car for everything – both teaching and yourself – the Jazz could be very appealing. Easy to drive, brilliantly reliable and very practical, the Jazz tends to be cheap to run


Don’t use the C-word! The car in these pictures is absolutely not a Citroen; instead it’s a DS. As such, this car is little more than a revamped version of the car we’ve known and loved since its introduction in 2010

Hyundai i30

The i30 is stylish, spacious, well equipped and good to drive, while a decent level of reliability is pretty much guaranteed

Peugeot 308

When the second-generation Peugeot 308 was crowned Car of the Year on its arrival in 2014, it was clear that the French car maker had made great strides in terms of efficiency, safety, quality, design and dynamics

Fiat 500

Launched in 2007 but refreshed in 2015, the 500 is the car that saved Fiat. It’s easy to see why, as it looks great, is fun to drive and has proved to be better built and more reliable than many previous Fiats
