  • CUSHIONING THE RIDE.

    Citroen and Britain go back a long way. Early Citroens were first sold here just after the first World War, from 1919. They quickly endeared themselves to UK drivers, and by 1923 there were already over 23,000 of the cars on British roads. Then, for almost 40 years, from 1926 until 1965, British-made Citroens were produced in a factory in Slough. We Brits are still major consumers of Citroen products, as the third largest market in the world for the cars, behind only China, and Citroen’s native France. There is another very strong Anglo-French link. For the past 18 months, Citroen’s global boss has been a British chief executive, who also happens to be one of the most senior women in the motor industry worldwide. Linda Jackson, former managing director of Citroen UK, runs the company from its Paris base and is shaping its future with some radical plans. Briefly back in Britain on a day trip via Eurostar, she revealed her strategy for driving the company forward and restoring some of its past glory. This is, after all, the brand with some very notable models in its 96-year history, such as the pioneering Traction Avant, the unforgettable 2CV, and the remarkable Ami 6. Citroens used to be known for their quirkiness, a characteristic that had evaporated in a couple of generations of rather bland models, but has recently been revived in the much more characterful Citroen C4 Cactus, with its distinctive body-protecting airbumps. Initial plans to build 70,000 units a year has proved overly modest, and current C4 Cactus production is running at 110,000 per annum. So can we expect more of the same in future models? Yes, says Linda Jackson. Although it is hard to quantify within a largely French-speaking company, as there is no direct translation in French for the word quirky. “The success of the C4 Cactus shows you can have a vehicle that stands out and be successful with it,” comments Linda. “We have never been successful when we try to be like everyone else. It’s a gamble to be quirky, but it’s what we are doing.” Something else for which Citroen has traditionally been known is the magic carpet ride quality of its famed hydropneumatic suspension, although more recently a hydraulic system on the current C5 has sought to deliver a modern version of cushioning ride comfort. But now Citroen is on the brink of revealing a revolutionary new suspension system that Linda says will be exclusive to the French firm, and will eventually become standard right across the range. It will appear on the first new model in 2017. For the moment she is a bit cagey about the specifics, whether it will be a self-levelling design, or some kind of air suspension system, but she promises it will take Citroen back to its roots of admirable ‘floating’ ride comfort, while maintaining good body control for handling precision. “Comfort is a core value of the Citroen brand, and this is our way to recreate the benefits of the hydropneumatic set-up in a more modern, more appropriate way,” she told us. Meanwhile, she is busy with bold plans to slim the Citroen range from its current 14 different body styles to a more rational seven core designs based around three platforms. It’s intended to make the brand both leaner and fitter, and also better structured for customers to appreciate what Citroen is about. So how does a British boss go down in an iconic French company? Pretty well so far. A clear direction and plans to resurrect some of what made past Citroens special is winning her respect. They’re even quite kind about her A-level-based ability to speak French. “They say I have an accent like Jane Birkin,” says an amused Linda.
  • FIAT news.

    The entry-price for Fiat’s new 500X has come down with the launch of new 94bhp 1.3-litre MultiJet engined versions. Prices now start at Ј16,345 for the Pop 1.3 MultiJet, with the mid-range Pop Star version costing Ј18,095, and the flagship Lounge edition priced at Ј19,845. The new 1.3-litre engine is Ј1,000 cheaper than the 118bhp 1.6-litre version, and introduces the more basic, entry-level Pop specification to the diesel engine range for the first time. But despite the more modest power output, there’s no savings to be made on CO2 emissions, as both engines emit the same figure of 109g/km, and according to official figures, capable of 68.9mpg on the combined cycle. The new 1.3-litre engine is available to order now, with the first deliveries expected in the new year.
  • PEUGEOT news.

    Automatic editions of the 308 and 308 SW fitted with the 2.0-litre BlueHDi 150 engine have been fettled, with CO2 emissons dropping down to 105g/km on the hatchback and 109g/km on the SW estate. Previously they were rated at 107 and 111g/km, respectively. Both Allure and GT Line versions are affected, with all cars rolling off the production lines now boasting the greater efficiency. And while the changes don’t alter the vehicle excise duty cost on the hatchback, the 308 SW drops into the Ј20 bracket, saving Ј10 per annum. That’s not an enormous reduction, however, company car drivers enjoy a one per cent reduction in the benefit-in-kind liability, with both hatchback and SW estate editions now charged at 19 per cent on the scale.

  • 2014 Kia Forte Koup Turbo
    Like any other modern gas turbo, the torque of Koup SX's Gamma four is served on a good wide platter, churning 195 lb-ft from about 1750 to almost 4500 rpm. What adds even more to the flexibility of the engine that is not really fussy on which gear the car, is in is the variable valve timing on exhaust sides and the intake. Row the SX like it is in originality; you are going to drive a six-speed manual and updating it to a six-speed automatic is going to cost you almost a grand in addition. A manual drive has a stiff clutch pedal with ordinary shift feel, whereas the gear changes in automatic is very smooth. There is an option in automatic control to switch to manual using the shift lever or paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel. ...see full review

  • 2015 Subaru WRX STI
    We will be able to have a better idea of how good or bad the car is when we get the STI for an objective testing. But this is for certain, the is definitely the most aggressive car to carry the Subaru name. When it comes down to the tracks, track-bound STI can out-lap the new WRX as it is slightly more powerful. However, comparing prices, even cheapest STI's cost about $8200 premium over base WRX. So you can hold on for now or go for the more pocket-friendly and researched cars like the good ol' Rex. If you want, you can also just hold on until the sampling for the 290 horsepower 2015 VW Golf R 4Motion. What you can learn here is that if you have a superfast track car that performs immensely well on the tracks, don't judge it by how slow it goes on one the old crowded roads in town. ...see full review
