    Enhancements to the C-MAX and Grand C-MAX with 1.5-litre TDCi engine and PowerShift gearbox has seen CO2 emissions tumble from 115 to 109g/km in the five-seat edition and 124 to 119g/km in the seven-seat Grand C-MAX model. It means that each version drops one vehicle excise duty band and in the case of the C-MAX, there’s a decease of two company car tax benefit-in kind brackets to 19 per cent. The Grand C-MAX drops one band to 21 per cent. Despite the enhanced efficiency, prices remain the same as before with the C-MAX Zetec 1.5 TDCi PowerShift costing Ј21,295 and rising to Ј26,395 for the Grand C-MAX Titaniumm X 1.5 TDCi PowerShift.
  • DUCATI 1299 PANIGALES.

    I missed the opportunity to test the regular Ducati 1299 Panigale earlier in the year but first impressions of the 1299 Panigale S are very positive. Jumping on, the bike is tall with an easy reach to the ground even for my 180cm height, reach to the bars is aggressive and the pegs are relatively tall. Taking the Panigale S through my usual testing route the first thing that impressed me was just how planted the bike is, even over relatively poor road surfaces the bike just feels like it’s glued to the road, with great feel front and rear. It’s still very firm, but the semiactive mode takes the bite out of the bumps and as a result the real kick experienced in the old 1199 that was so punishing, to your bum, spine and kidneys, is gone. The S is quite agile, with neutral steering that doesn’t exactly require muscling but does require concentration and thought about where you want to go. Changing your line mid-corner is easy and it really does feel like you’re on rails, regardless of your speed. I’d say it’s similar to the 899 Panigale, on which you don’t notice the effort that goes into handling until you jump on something that feels noticeably quicker steering. That’s not a criticism though, just an observation. The Brembo EVO M50 brake calipers on the front are also extremely strong, not in an off-putting fashion but I did find it easier to use the awesome Ducati Quick Shifter with auto-blipper to drop down a gear to wash off some speed. Talking of power the engine is a belter, down low the 1285cc L-twin is lumpy and you can just about roll along at 19km/h in first without clutch but it’s not pleasant, but that does smooth out rapidly as you reach higher into the revs. The fueling and throttle response are both super smooth and responsive, with Sport providing a smoother power delivery and throttle response than Race and power is just explosive. It’s also seriously loud with the two-into-two system with the stock stainless mufflers in the belly and I thought I might pop an eardrum when I rode into our underground garage a bit too vigorously! What did stand out is just how heavy the clutch lever is, it felt like fighting a bear trap when I got caught in really heavy traffic and was having to use it frequently. The DQS on the other hand means that in anything except stop-start traffic you aren’t using the clutch constantly. The Panigale 1299 S certainly has the goods to justify a model suffix, with its full LED lighting, carbon-fibre front guard and auxiliary adjustment buttons adding to the awesome Panigale package. But what really conveys the value of the premium price of $34,990 plus on roads is the full Ohlins suspension, using the Ohlins Smart EC semi-active suspension system for both the NIX30 forks and TTX36 rear shock, as well as an Ohlins steering damper, while further communicating with the Bosch Inertia Platform - which provides cornering ABS and greater traction control refinement. Not only this but the system can actually be run in Fixed mode, which turns off the semiactive suspension and allows full adjustability, just like in a traditional system.
  • GSX-R 1000.

    Eleven years after the launch of the GSX-R1000 K5, Suzuki finally revealed a brand-new GSX-R1000 L7 at EICMA 2015. According to the Japanese bike-makers, this new GSX-R1000 is the lightest, most powerful and best handling Gixxer they’ve ever made, which, if true, is extremely exciting since the previous Gixxer was already a very capable motorcycle. Highlights of the new GSX-R1000 include an all-new chassis, an all-new 999-cc engine with 200 PS on tap, bidirectional quickshifter, a 10-level traction control and Showa suspension. We expect the to make its way to our shores sooner or later. Are you listening, Suzuki India?

  • 2015 Porsche Macan S / Turbo
    The interior has the standard sloping centre console that was first seen in the Carrera GT. That model had only a few controls while this one is very complicated in its looks. Every function is switch- controlled. There are more than 30 switches on the centre panel and some more overhead and on the wheel. There is also the 7 inch touch screen along with an infotainment control panel below it. So clearly simplification is really not the USP here. ...see full review

  • 2015 Nissan GT-R / GT-R NISMO
    For all the Nissan GT-R fans out there, it is time to welcome the new member in the family, the mighty GT-R NISMO. Now, it surely isn't a bad idea to tame the giant and bad-ass super-coupe a little bit! Well, the theme for the all-new 2015 GT-R could be ‘compliance'. Nissan engineers have duly agreed that they came across several circumstances, where the slight- squishier –suspension could be just as effective or may be more. And as they believe, "a more compliant suspension means more traction on a wider selection of roads." ...see full review
