Škoda’s New Electric Vehicle has an Irish Accent

Toyota Corolla GR Sport – Added Pepper on Demand
Now over fifty-years old and in its twelfth generation, everyone in motoring has heard of and probably been driven in a Toyota Corolla. Ireland has loved the Corolla since it arrived here with its high-back front seats and in-built radio in the early 70’s. Its recent generations, including its temporary replacement the Auris, maintained a more conservative forecourt stance than the competition, their offerings lacked the sparkle to attract younger drivers, added to the trend today where brand loyalty is a tad fickle.

Ford EcoSport – Compact Crossover Finally Makes it
If ever Ford made a ‘marmite’ car, this is it, the EcoSport, a car built on the very talented Fiesta platform, and raised to partake in the ferocity of the small Crossover/SUV segment.

Peugeot 508SW – Elegance on the High Street
Try as I might, it is impossible to find an angle where the new 508 Peugeot estate does not look elegant and stylish. In its saloon form, the 508 is a stunning car, magnetising your eyes outside and in, delivering a very decent drive and with the same 1.5HDI, will not have you dipping into fuel stations with any great frequency. Having shared the company of the 508SW across city and country, I found it very easy to live with, the sheer, easy practicality of the estate, coupled to one of the best interiors you could live with, made every journey a pleasure.

New Juke - Rocking to its Own Tune!
Designing and delivering an innovative car for public consumption is the goal of many manufacturers. Most will not take the chance and simply follow a trend introduced by someone else, the risk of failure reduced dramatically in the process. This cannot be levied at Nissan, who’ve given us Qashqai, a weird word that introduced the world to the phenomena of ‘crossover’ and elevated motoring. Ten years ago, Nissan gave us Juke, a B-segment ‘compact crossover’ that put a whole new visual profile to the street, some ten-thousand Juke’s finding Irish homes.
