Ferrari SF90 Stradale 2020 review

  Ferrari SF90 Stradale 2020 review Does Ferrari’s first plug-in hybrid do things conventionally? Don’t be daft. Welcome to a 986bhp technical masterpiecePerformance feels every bit as towering as Ferrari’s claimed 6.7sec 0-124mph time suggests it should, with the tightened ratios of the new gearbox making it easier to indulge the V8’s sonorous enthusiasm for its top end. On any public road, the accelerator pedal will reach its stop only rarely and be held there for brief periods, despite the four-wheel drive system’s impressive ability to digest the full output.

The Mini Countryman Hybrid - that’s the simplest way to think of this newly added high-riding model. But that’s the car’s short name. Like me - I go by Matt, and this Mini We’ll be going with the former though this review , but those letters are all important to what this model is, and what it represents.

You tend to want a MINI because it’s a MINI, but the Countryman still allows those who want everything a MINI offers, but in a larger, more family-friendly package. The plug-in hybrid will make sense to many looking to reduce running costs or company car tax, while still looking to have some fun behind the wheel in a car that is as premium as this size car will get.

While most car makers are just about getting around to adding plug-in hybrids to their ranges, MINI has been something of a trailblazer. Its Countryman PHEV has been around for three years now and, like the rest of the Countryman range, has just received a facelift.

Audi E-tron S Sportback 2020 review

  Audi E-tron S Sportback 2020 review Clever electric drivetrain and torque vectoring result in great pace and engaging handlingThe deployment of the combined reserves is controlled by a newly developed four-wheel drive system. As well as offering three levels of energy recuperation, it also incorporates a new electronic torque vectoring system, giving the E-tron S Sportback the ability to individually control the amount of drive fed to each individual rear wheel with greater accuracy than any of Audi’s existing systems. It’s described as being significantly faster than any of its current mechanical systems, too.

And that’s exactly what it is – customers had complained that the older model’s ‘handlebar moustache’ grille made the car look a bit sad, so this nip and tuck has made the new Countryman a bit happier.

In reality, we struggled to see any real change in the car’s mood in spite of the grille being flattened off along the bottom, the headlights being tweaked so that they feature LED (with optional matrix beams) and the bumper being reprofiled with repositioned lights and air intakes. If anything, it all looks a tiny bit more sophisticated than before.

At the back, it’s a similar story, although the rear lights (LED again) now feature the MINI trademark Union Flag-style rear lights, while the rear bumper has also been reprofiled.

Of course, there are new colours and wheels to get excited about outside, too, but inside the biggest change is the adoption of a rather neat 5.5-inch digital display in place of a traditional driver display – the same screen was first seen in the MINI.

It’s a sexy-looking thing with a smartphone-style slim bezel and easy-to-read graphics that sits on top of the steering column so moves as you adjust the steering wheel.

Honda E Advance 2020 UK review

  Honda E Advance 2020 UK review Short-range urban runabout is filled with interesting tech; too impressive to drive out of town for its own goodHonda certainly feels so: it points out that it could simply have strapped a battery under the recently launched front wheel-drive Jazz hybrid (longer and a bit more spacious in the back), but it instead chose to give the E a new platform to give it dynamically pure rear-wheel drive, plus a 50:50 weight distribution and MacPherson strut-type independent suspension at either end. The move away from front-wheel drive also allows the steered wheels to turn very tightly, which yields the taxi-beating turning circle of 8.6 metres between kerbs.

The central infotainment screen is still 8.8-inches across and constrained by the circular binnacle it has to sit in – the screen itself looks rather small, as are the graphics displayed on it. MINI has tidied things up, though, by reducing the number of buttons and adding in fast keys that can be programmed for navigation destinations, audio channels or other most-used functions.

Quality inside the Countryman remains impressive – as you’d expect for a car that demands a premium price for its size. And space inside the Countryman is good – there’s plenty of headroom and it’s comfortable and easy enough for adults to sit in the back, or to fit a child in a child seat. The boot uses its depth for space, offering 450-litres, reduced to 405 in the plug-in hybrid.

As with other MINIs, you do feel like you sit low with the upright door panels and dashboard surrounding you. It can feel a bit dark in there, too, although the latest clever lighting tech adds a nice splash of colour at nice.

Then there’s the usual array of toggle switches, including the largest and greenest of the lot – to actually start the car.

Toyota Highlander Hybrid 2020 review

  Toyota Highlander Hybrid 2020 review Toyota’s seven-seat hybrid SUV will bring its practicality and economy, but hopefully not its floaty suspension, to Europe next yearInside, Toyota has succeeded in taking the Highlander upmarket with this new model. The upscale cabin, at least on our high-end Limited model, has convincing woodgrain trim, comfy leather seats, an imposing, 12.3in infotainment screen and rock-solid build quality.

The driving experience has been left well alone – we did say this was just a facelift – so the existing range of engines is carried over, while the plug-in hybrid system retains its blend of 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engine and electric motor for a combined power output of 217bhp.

The 10kWh battery gives an electric-only range of around 30 miles, which is replenished under braking – and there’s no awkward feel to the brake pedal.

Porsche 911 Targa 2020 UK review

  Porsche 911 Targa 2020 UK review Aside from its looks, the 911 Targa has always struggled to stand out against its rangemates. Now, there’s a new one. We put it to the test in the UK for the first timeIn these environments, the Targa rides with plenty of purpose, but isn’t so firm that that you’d think twice about using it as more of a long-legged GT - something plenty of Targa owners will no doubt have done over the years. Coupled with the 911’s fantastic driving position and excellent visibility front and rear, it is a sports car in which you could quite happily endure big-mile schleps.

As you’d expect, there’s a choice of Sport, Mid or Green modes to choose from, but leave the car to its own devices and it does a good job of mixing power sources depending on your driving – and being pretty efficient, while doing so.

The 0-62mph time of 6.8 seconds looks better on paper, though – in reality there’s a slight hesitation as the car realises you want to get a move on; it feels a little like turbo lag. But on the move the switch between EV and petrol power is pretty seemless, helped by the excellent six-speed auto box.

The ride, as with most MINIs, is on the firmer side of comfortable, while there’s a fair bit of wind noise at a constant speed. But throw the Countryman at a few bends and it hides its weight and height well and is as true to MINI’s ‘go-kart handling’ ethos as the car’s bulk will allow.

With a starting price of close to £33,000, the Countryman PHEV looks all the more attractive when compared with its peers. However, that’s only the beginning for a Classic spec car. Another couple of thousand will get you into Sport or Exclusive models, but then comes the temptation (and cost) of the MINI’s personalisation, packages and options list.

Alpina B3 Touring 2020 UK review .
Buchloe's take on the BMW M340i Touring is a 456bhp, 516lb ft super-estate that melds finesse and ferocity to astonishing effectTake it as read that the 3 Series Touring now feels ideally sized for fast family-car duties. There’s plenty of space inside and you get a real sense of maturity on the move, but the car avoids the occasional awkwardness that comes with driving something as large as the 5 Series Touring – or Alpina’s V8-engined B5 Touring – through towns and along B-roads.
