Tested: Jaguar XF 25t R-Sport

The luscious cruiser

I’ve always attempted to deviate from the norm. It’s more fun that way. Why settle for what everyone else has? Why follow the crowd? Sure, it’s a lot safer, people won’t point fingers at you but I think you lose your sense of identity by being so-called ‘normal’ and quite frankly, that’s too boring for my taste.

Sprint Review: Volvo XC90 T5 Inscription

A whole lot of impressions, very few words.

What’s it about? Volvo have got canny with presenting a big SUV with a small 2litre, 4-cylinder engine and making it so stylishly desirable and fantastic to drive that you’ll want one… if you’re happy to pay the hefty price tag that is.

Tested: Volvo XC90 AWD D5 Inscription

The great anticipation

I’ve been so looking forward to testing the latest offering from Volvo. There’s been massive hype around the launch and I was privileged enough to get an early insight into this rather impressive SUV during August of this year, but it’s always even better to be able to poke around, fiddle with new knobs and dials and really get to grips with a new vehicle during a test week.
