MINI Roadster review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/mini/roadster/roadster/review
The MINI Roadster is the first two-seater convertible MINI has ever produced, and is designed to compete with the Mazda MX-5 and Audi TT Roadster. The fabric roof folds away in just 10 seconds and the boot is a useful 240 litres, whether the roof is up or down. Only Cooper models are available, including one diesel, the Cooper SD, with either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic gearbox.

Porsche Panamera review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/porsche/panamera/hatchback/review
Porsche could be criticised for being lacking a sense of adventure when it comes to design, but its dedication to providing a fantastic driving experience shines through with the Panamera. This oddly proportioned hatchback is Porsche's first 'saloon', yet the German firm has injected it with the DNA of a sports car.
Range Rover Evoque review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/land-rover/evoque/suv/review
The premium SUV sector will never be quite the same again, as the Range Rover Evoque has raised the bar to an entirely new level. It's available in two compact bodystyles -- with three doors or five -- and with a choice of three engines and a trio of luxury trim levels, while the pricing structure makes it the perfect entry point to Range Rover ownership.
Skoda Yeti review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/skoda/yeti/sports-utility-vehicle/review
The Skoda Yeti is a well-priced 'crossover' alternative to conventional family hatchbacks like the Ford Focus. The majority of Yetis are front-wheel drive, but the raised suspension does mean it'll venture further off road than most regular cars, while speed bumps in town hold absolutely no fear.
Citroen DS4 review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/citroen/ds4/hatchback/review
French firm Citroen is heading upmarket with its new DS range by introducing special variants of its existing models to give buyers that something extra. The high-riding DS4 hatchback offers style, practicality and a sportier driving experience, with plenty of luxury touches thrown in. Purchasers can choose from five powerplants -- three petrols and two diesels. Equipment levels are high and sophisticated touches abound.
Alfa Romeo Giulietta review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/alfa-romeo/giulietta/hatchback/review
The Alfa Romeo Giulietta is the best family hatchback the firm has ever made. Buyers are offered plenty of choice, with four trim levels - each of which is well equipped - and five engines, all of them economical. It's good looking, and the interior strikes a good balance between user-friendly simplicity and appealing style.
Mercedes CLS-Class review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/mercedes/cls-class/saloon/review
There were plenty of people who doubted Mercedes-Benz' ability to successfully combine the looks and drivability of a coupé with the practicality of a saloon. They shouldn't have done... The CLS didn't just impress all those who saw it, it inspired an entire new class of rival and copycat cars, including the Audi A5 Sportback, the Audi A7 Sportback and the Volkswagen Passat CC.
This is the second generation of the car. It gets an even bolder design and totally new range of engines.
Hyundai Veloster review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/hyundai/veloster/hatchback/review
The Hyundai Veloster is the firm's latest attempt to produce a coupe without compromise, and first impressions prove they are not far off the mark. One highlight is the clever door arrangement, which is similar to a MINI Clubman. It has a single door on one side and a pair of doors on the other to improve access to the back seats. Unlike the Clubman, Hyundai has engineered the door layout for the UK, so the double doors open on to the pavement, not into the road. At the moment there's a single engine choice - a rather weak 138bhp 1.6-litre petrol - but this may be joined by a diesel and a high powered turbo version in the near future. The Veloster's sharp chassis is easily capable of dealing with more power.
MINI Countryman : Car Review
http://newcarnet.tv Massimo Pini road tests the MINI Countryman.
Today's MINIs bear little resemblance to the tiny Issigonis-designed original, launched more than 50 years ago - and none moreso than this - the Countryman - MINI's first foray into the burgeoning crossover market.

Volvo XC60 review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/volvo/xc60/sports-utility-vehicle/review
Think of the XC60 more as a raised family-sized estate car than a proper off-roader. It's practical, classy and very easy to drive. We're big fans of the comfortable ride and the great view you get from the high driving position. Offering neither the sporty, firm ride of the Audi Q5 or the rugged ability of the Land Rover Freelander, the XC60 falls somewhere in between -- and as such strikes a great balance for family buyers.

BMW X3 review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/bmw/x3/suv/review
The latest four-wheel drive SUV from BMW, the X3 is a very accomplished road car that sits just below the X5 in BMW's impressive line-up.
Audi A6 review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/audi/a6/saloon/review
You have to admire the new, 2011 Audi A6. Built out of more lightweight materials than ever, the latest A6 is faster yet more economical than ever while inside its incredibly classy cabin is chock full of all the gadgets you'd expect on a luxury car. There's a wide range of petrol and diesel engines, along with the option of quattro four-wheel drive too.
New MINI Countryman - Day & Night driving + beauty in HD
MINI is adding a fourth model to its range with the MINI Countryman, which bridges the gap between the classic concept of the MINI and a modern Sports Activity Vehicle. As the first model in the MINI range with four doors and a wide-opening rear lid, the MINI Countryman, which comes as standard with four seats, provides more space versatility as well as a slightly elevated seating position. The MINI Countryman is entering the market with a choice of three gas and two diesel engines. The power range extends from 66 kW/90 hp in the MINI One D Countryman to 135 kW/184 hp in the MINI Cooper S Countryman. The 1.6-litre four-cylinder petrol engine in the top model comes for the first time not only with a twin-scroll turbocharger and direct fuel injection, but also with fully variable valve management.
Audi Q3 review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/audi/q3/sports-utility-vehicle/review
With the launch of the Audi Q3, the firm has entered the growing market for crossovers - cars which look like big, chunky off-roaders, but are as easy to drive and economical as a family hatchback. The Q3 is a direct rival for the BMW X1, MINI Countryman and Range Rover Evoque, and is built to Audi's usual high standards. Interior quality is excellent, and there's space for five inside
2012 Mini Coupe Review - What makes the new MINI Coupe special couldn't be more obvious
After a day spent at the autocross with the new MINI Coupe, we're having dinner at Immogine+Willy, a boutique Jeans store in Nashville, Tennessee. Once a gas station, it's retained much of that old charm but now features some seriously retro looking equipment for making custom fitted jeans right on site.
