  Honda Civic Type R 2020 UK review Revised hot hatch is joined by less lairy and more lairy versions, but we try the Goldilocks middle childThe first thing you notice is that the six-speed manual gearbox is even better to use. That reprofiled and carefully weighted aluminium knob makes for an even sweeter shift action, plus it’s nicer to hold than the slightly oversized spherical affair in the old car. Its short throw and mechanical action have you slicing up and down just for the hell of it. That Alcantara wheel feels good in your hands, too.

What is it?

Cast your mind back to summer 2019, when the Model 3 arrived in Britain and sightings of its globular form had us pressing our noses up against the glass of our own, suddenly quite archaic-feeling combustion cars. Tesla’s most affordable offering has, in the short time since then, gone from being almost non-existent on our roads to feeling commonplace, especially in London. And this despite it being considerably more expensive than EV hatchback stalwarts such as the Nissan Leaf. In fact, so strong is the brand and capable the product that Tesla’s junior saloon regularly tops monthly EV sales charts in Europe, with only Renault’s Zoe able to keep up. True, at this precise moment, Volkswagen’s box-fresh ID3 – the car ‘seeking forgiveness for Dieselgate’, as Jim Holder accurately put it – is the EV that European buyers want most, but with vital statistics inferior to the American car in almost every way, don’t bank on the novelty factor lasting.To help its cause, Tesla has given the Model 3 an early facelift, though one less comprehensive than those traditionally applied to cars four or five years into the model-cycle. Call it a refresh. The range still consists of three variants, our test car being the entry-level, rear-driven Standard Range model, while both the Long Range and Performance use two electric motors to give them four-wheel drive and larger battery packs that push range from 254 to more than 350 miles.Performance is brisk whichever powertrain you have, and the 283bhp motor in the Standard Range not only propels the car to 60mph in 5.3sec but does so in a manner that feels considerably quicker those numbers suggest.

What is it like?

The most significant addition to the car is the heat-pump from the Model Y mid-size SUV. I’ll admit, it’s hardly the most exciting upgrade, but is important because powertrain efficiency, rather than brute battery size, is what helps Tesla’s achieve its class-leading driving ranges, and this new pump improves matters in cold weather.

The safest SUVs and 4x4s

  The safest SUVs and 4x4s SUVs can make great family cars, but which of these stylish, high-riding vehicles is safest – and which is best avoided?

The Standard Range Plus is WLTP-certified for 254 miles of claimed range and the Long Range steps that up to 348 miles. Tesla Model 3 Performance 2019 UK review . Much ballyhooed ‘affordable’ electric saloon will be in showrooms later this year, making the question of its suitability for Britain’s

The trade-off is that some space in the ‘frunk’ has been sacrificed, but nose-to-tail this remains an impressively spacious car. The other side of the coin is that Tesla is now fitting Michelin’s excellent Pilot Sport 4S tyres, which don’t exactly scream ‘low rolling resistance’. Quite the opposite.

Aesthetically, you can tell the updated car by its satin-black door handles, and the subtly updated design for the aero-covers that clip onto the 18in or 19in alloy wheels. The same satin-black finish is dotted about the interior, where you’ll also find two new USB-C ports and a useful two-phone charging pad below the 15in touchscreen, which is unchanged and continues to control almost everything that the steering wheel and pedals do not. The place feels smarter, no question, and all cars are now fitted with an electric tailgate.

  Mazda MX-30 2020 UK review A classy, comfortable, refined, well-equipped and well-priced crossover – but at the cost of a range that will put off many buyersThe interior also merges some of the spatial benefits of its dedicated EV architecture with some reassuringly conventional features. The clean dashboard creates a real sense of space, with the 8.8in infotainment screen set back in the dashboard. There’s also a 7.0in colour touchscreen to operate the climate control. But this isn’t a form-over-function touchscreen takeover: the climate control screen is surrounded by physical buttons, and the infotainment is operated via a rotary controller built into the ‘floating’ centre console.

And to drive? Well, the Model 3 gives off the same exciting and largely intuitive but slightly misconceived vibes it always has. The car is agile and responsive, and superbly airy on the move, with its full-length panoramic roof and barely anything to corrupt the simplicity of the wooden trim that runs along the dashboard top.

It’s a shame, then, that the spring rates are so high. This is undoubtedly to make the car feel sporty, but it has the side-effect that ride-quality is unnecessarily reactive both about town and at speed. The steering is also accurate but dumb, which is disappointing because the rear-driven Model 3 is not only well balanced but also throttle-adjustable. Lift while cornering and the nose darts inwards like you'd expect for any mid-engined sports car worth its salt. Nobody would expect Porsche Taycan-grade steering from a car half the price and whose engineers are less experienced at that kind of tuning, but so long as the potential for genuine driving satisfaction remains this clear, it’s frustrating to see it go unfulfilled.

Should I buy one?

Overall the Model 3 is, as ever, difficult if not impossible to look past at this price-point.

Kia’s excellent e-Niro is perhaps a more rational choice at £33,000, being similarly spacious and with 282 miles of range, but the Tesla is out of sight in terms of performance and general fizz, before you consider the Supercharger network. Expect to see even more on the road.

Land Rover Range Rover D300 Vogue 2021 UK review .
Even in its dotage, the entry-level Range Rover might still be all the luxury car you ever wanted. Refined, genteel, capable and a pleasure to drive.On the road, there’s plenty of accessible performance available; compared even to cars with the supercharged V8 models, this version of the car feels really effortless to drive because it so often has all the torque it needs to meet a roll-on performance demand without even needing a downshift. When you do feel the need to work the engine harder, it remains smooth and willing beyond 3500rpm; it isn’t exactly sweet to listen to, but it’s an awfully long way from objectionable.
