Facelifted Mazda CX-3 is still a strong crossover contender


What is it? Mazda has a habit of regularly updating its cars with small refinements and improvements, rather than saving them all for a big update every few years. Such is the way with the 2018 CX-3 compact crossover, which you might find difficult to tell apart from its predecessor.


UK Drive: Audi’s SQ7 offers all things to all people


What is it? If you want to go very fast in a big, high-riding SUV, then there aren’t all that many options available. You could go down the Porsche Cayenne Turbo route, or even that of the Range Rover Sport SVR. However, if you want a performance diesel-powered off-roader, then there’s really only this – the Audi SQ7. It may be an oil burner, but it’s still capable of hitting 60mph in under five seconds – all while seating up to seven people in the utmost comfort. Here, we check out how it copes on UK roads.


The top five SUVs to buy on the new ‘68’ plate


The SUV market sector is one of the most popular and fastest-growing in the UK, so it follows that manufacturers all want a slice of the pie. And that’s good news for consumers, as it means car brands all compete to produce the best SUVs – and the resulting products are seriously impressive.

What is it? Yes, that’s right, it’s yet another SUV. However, whereas most four-wheel-drives have an Audi, BMW or Mercedes badge on the front, this is built by a company known for doing things slightly different – Alfa Romeo. The Stelvio is Alfa’s very first SUV, and it enters into an incredibly busy segment. Having already knocked it out of the park with the excellent Giulia saloon, can Alfa repeat the recipe with the larger Stelvio? Let’s find out.


UK Drive: Vauxhall’s Grandland X Ultimate falls short of the mark


What is it? The Grandland X is Vauxhall’s own offering into the ever-prosperous SUV segment, and shares its underpinnings with the popular Peugeot 3008. We’re testing it here in range-topping Ultimate trim, with a 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel engine providing power. In fact, this powerplant is only available with the Ultimate specification, and can’t be added to any other equipment level.

UK Drive: Volvo’s XC90 D5 R-Design remains a classy all-rounder


What is it? The XC90 has always led the charge when it comes to classy, seven-seater cars. Luxurious yet understated, it’s a solid contender against the likes of the Land Rover Discovery and BMW X5. It’s also packing as much safety technology as you’ll find on a car on sale today, which makes it a key family car-segment option.
