  • CB 500F.

    For 2016, the Honda CB 500F gets a more hard-edged and muscular styling. Its 471-cc engine puts out 47.6 PS at 8,500 RPM and 43 Nm of torque at 7,000 RPM. Will it be seen on our shores? Unlikely, but then one can always hope.
  • Skoda Superb SE L Executive 2.0 TDI Automatic.

    Earlier in the year, the latest Superb Estate faced one of its deadliest rivals in the large car arena, challenging Ford’s Mondeo in an estate car showdown. It beat its Blue Oval rival thanks to its spacious cabin and huge boot. Now, months later, we’ve got behind the wheel of the hatchback edition, paired to the more powerful 188bhp edition of the 2.0-litre TDI engine and six-speed twin-clutch DSG automatic transmission. Here we test it in upmarket SE L Executive trim, which delivers a lengthy list of standard equipment for the Ј28,720 asking price. This more powerful edition of the 2.0-litre TDI engine serves up effortless performance, but rarely feels as fast as the on paper figures suggest it should. Maybe it’s because the super refined drivetrain filters out all of the sensations of speed, instead delivering a relatively serene driving experience. The six-speed twin-clutch transmission certainly swaps cogs efficiently enough, with little evidence that the gears have been changed. The engine may sound a little clattery from cold, but soon settles down to become a distant backing track, and you’re more likely to be troubled with the road and tyre noise that permeates all too readily into the cabin. Through corners, the handling is neat and tidy, with low levels of body lean and a generous amount of grip. The steering is accurate and nicely weighted, however it isn’t as much fun to pilot as a Ford Mondeo, for example. Ride comfort is a mixed bag, and at faster motorway speeds it soaks up imperfections with ease. At lower speeds the suspension can become fidgety, transferring too many potholes and thumps into the cabin. The cabin of the Superb is a masterclass in elegant design. Swathes of soft-touch plastics are mixed with smart looking metal appliquйs, with all of the major controls exactly where you expect them. The eight-inch touchscreen navigation system is perfectly positioned and a delight to use, thanks to clearly labelled buttons alongside. The instruments are a model of clarity thanks to a white on black design, however, it’s a shame that the markings are out of tune for the UK market, showing speeds of 20, 40 and 60, when 30, 50 and 70 would be more relevant. The driving position is multi-adjustable, while the no-cost option of leather and Alcantara seats hug you nicely in place when cornering. Generous head and legroom both front and rear give the sense that you’re travelling in a vehicle altogether more upmarket, and limousinelike in flavour. Family life inevitably means lots of clutter and there’s plenty of space for oddments thanks to a large lidded tray ahead of the gear lever, a well-proportioned glovebox and door pockets, as well as an area beneath the armrest. Rearward vision is a little compromised due to a shallow rear screen, but thankfully rear parking sensors are provided on all but the entry-level model. One piece of handy buying advice is to make sure that you tick the box for the no-cost rear wiper, as the default option is that it comes without. It’s at the business end where the Superb plays its biggest trump card, with a boot capacity of 625 litres that is larger than any other similarly sized car on the road.
  • Rivale 800.

    The new-for-2016 Rivale 800 is probably one of the edgiest designs available when it comes to naked streetfighters. The bike’s steel tubular trellis frame houses a 798-cc liquid-cooled three-cylinder engine that pumps out 125 PS at 12,000 RPM and a peak 84 Nm of torque at 8,600 RPM. Transmission to a fat 180/55 ZR17 rear tyre is taken care of via a cassette-type six-speed constant-mesh gearbox. The bike also benefits from MV Agusta’s EAS electronic quickshift. Front forks of the Rivale are 43- mm Marzocchi USDs while the rear suspension comprises a Sachs monoshock with adjustment for spring preload as rebound damping. The new Rivale also sports a larger 16-litre fuel-tank compared to the older model’s 12.9 litres.

  • 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible
    The Corvette group is clarifying that this convertible version introduces a soft-top rather than featuring a hardtop for 3 main reasons: It is certainly lighter, it demands less space and most of all it blends to the looks of the convertible. Webasto, which supplied the softtop roof assembly, claims to have added 60 extra pounds to the curb weight along with featuring a glass rear window and tri-layer fabric, which covers the incorporate sound insulation between the middle strata and innermost. ...see full review

  • 2016 Volvo XC90
    This engine is responsive and powerful enough. The large turbocharger needed to provide the max 302 ponies from a 2.0-liter engine, which would usually produce less response, however Volvo has provided and fitted with a charger to ensure that vehicle engine responds to the need in almost all Rpm. Also when idle, redline and accelerating in the midrange, the vehicle engine never gives out a groan or discordant note. ...see full review

  • 2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe
    The F-Type R Coupe is something totally different that amazes the customers. It has a brand of its own. The customers may assume that the car is just the same as the previous versions, but besides having the same basic dimensions and proportions, the car is entirely different. The car has the same narrow interior and a sweeping roofline, which is very beautiful. The rear view featured by the model is much as the E-type Coupe. The customers can get the roof panel as aluminum or even panoramic glass according to his or her choice. But, the weight of the roof is what kills the performance of this super model. ...see full review
