All-American off-road firm Jeep is part of the larger Chrysler organisation, which has been through a turbulent few years. First the company parted ways with Mercedes-Benz, then the recession hit the firm harder than most, but now Chrysler's future is looking a lot more stable under Fiat ownership. The Jeep Grand Cherokee is something of a transition model, as it uses a platform that's shared with the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, but it's powered by a 3.0-litre V6 diesel that was developed by Fiat.
Range Rover Sport review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/land-rover/range-rover-sport/sports-utility-vehicle/review
The Range Rover Sport is more modern and easier to manoeuvre than the Range Rover proper - and is nearly as good off-road. It has a wonderfully designed, beautifully finished interior, loads of space and an enormous boot. For keen drivers, there's the brutally fast and fuel guzzling 5.0-litre Supercharged version. If money really is no object, go for that one. For the rest of us, the 3.0-litre diesel is still brilliant, and at least 50 per cent more economical.

Volkswagen Touareg review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/volkswagen/touareg/sports-utility-vehicle/review
The Touareg SUV was originally launched in 2003 and then significantly updated in 2010. It majors on luxury, although it also has the capability to tackle more extreme conditions than most drivers will ever experience. The latest version is much lighter than the original, despite being bigger.
Mercedes M-Class review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/mercedes/m_class/sports-utility-vehicle/review
The latest generation of the Mercedes M-Class was introduced in late 2011 as Mercedes lifted its game against rivals that have emerged in the decade since it spawned this segment: the Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne and BMW X5. The M-Class is nearly four-metres long and has a massive load area, regardless of which of model you choose. The ML 250 starts the range with a 202bhp 2.1-litre four-cylinder turbodiesel, then there's the volume-selling ML 350 with its 255bhp V6 turbodiesel. If it's power you're after rather than efficiency, there's the ML 63 AMG complete with 518bhp 5.5-litre twin turbo V8 -- the most powerful Mercedes 4x4 ever sold. All offer luxurious equipment levels, fit and finish as well as an imposing road presence.
Mercedes-Benz B-Class review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/mercedes/b_class/mini-mpv/review
The new B-Class is a compact MPV, positioned as a premium rival to the Ford C-MAX and Volkswagen Golf Plus. It's built around an all-new front-wheel drive platform that will be used for the new A-Class and three other brand new models. The interior layout is versatile and spacious, as well as maintaining Mercedes' reputation for high-quality.

Volkswagen CC review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/volkswagen/passat-cc/saloon/review
Despite sharing a platform with the new Volkswagen Passat, Volkswagen's latest four-door coupe is known simply as the Volkswagen CC - which stands for Comfort Coupe. Featuring revised four-door coupe styling and a high quality interior, the latest version is priced from around £24,000. The UK engine range includes 1.8-litre TSI 158bhp or 2.0-litre TSI 207bhp petrols and a 2.0-litre TDI common rail diesel with either 138bhp or 168bhp.
Toyota Land Cruiser review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/toyota/landcruiser/sports-utility-vehicle/review
Mighty off road ability and total mechanical dependability make the Land Cruiser a top choice for anyone considering a journey to the ends of the earth. However, it lacks the comfort and versatility of rivals like the Land Rover Discovery 4. Tonka-toy looks and incredible mechanical toughness make the Land Cruiser a popular choice for drivers who are planning big adventures off-road. If it's gadgets galore you're after, though, you won't be disappointed, as the cabin is well equipped, with satellite navigation, air-conditioning and electric windows standard on top-specification models. Inside, the interior looks and feels a little dated, but at least there's a new dashboard that gathers together all those easy to use controls in a smart looking fashion. Chunky indicator stalks and heater controls are in keeping with the car's no-nonsense image.
Chrysler Delta review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/chrysler/delta/hatchback/review
The Delta is a five-door family hatchback similar in size to the Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus. Originally released as a Lancia in Europe, the Delta is now sold by Chrysler in the UK making use of the already well-established dealer network. Parent company Fiat supply a range of engines for UK customers including two petrols and a two diesels. Our pick of the range is the 1.6-litre diesel engine as it offers low running costs and a torquey power delivery - it is very noisy though. The smaller 1.4-litre petrols can prove to be quite thirsty but are better suited to shorter journeys. All variants are spacious inside and come with air conditioning and six airbags as standard.

Chevrolet Captiva review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/chevrolet/captiva/sports-utility-vehicle/review
The Captiva is a large SUV that can be specified with either five, or seven seats. Models come in two, or four-wheel drive and there's a 2.2-litre VCDi turbo diesel engine with a choice of two power outputs. The lower-powered model gives slightly better fuel efficiency and lower running costs, but both have an impressive torque figure, which aids low-down acceleration. The Captiva offers space and practicality for a price that upmarket rivals can't match: the trade-off is a slightly cheap-feeling interior, noisy engines and an occasionally harsh ride.
Hyundai ix35 review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/hyundai/ix35/sports-utility-vehicle/review
There's no getting away from the fact that the Hyundai ix35 is a distinctive-looking car -- its tall suspension, and prominent grille and headlamp combination help it turn heads wherever it goes. Crucially, the ix is 10cm longer than its rival the Nissan Qashqai, and as a result there's lots of room inside. The dashboard is clearly laid out and the car's fixtures and fittings feel solidly made. Premium trim cars offer climate control, heated leather seats, automatic wipers and a panoramic glass roof as standard, as well keyless entry. There are four engines on offer, including a powerful 134bhp 2.0-litre turbodiesel
Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/mercedes/e_class/cabriolet/review
Mercedes' E-Class Cabriolet is not just stylish and comfortable -- it's one of the few four-seat drop-tops that's as comfortable to drive with the roof down as it is with it closed. Thank the innovative 'Aircap' for that. It's a cleverly designed wind deflector that keeps draughts at bay in the E-Class Cabriolet's cabin. Mercedes-Benz bucked the growing trend for folding hardtops and instead used a more traditional fabric roof. That has some advantages, not least that the boot can offer more space with the roof stowed. Seven engines and two trim levels give buyers plenty of choice, including diesel options - the E-Class Cabriolet is the first open-topped Mercedes-Benz to be offered with diesel engines.

2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee ultra detailed tour and walkaround!
This is an extended video of the brand new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, recorded at Kelly's Jeep Chrysler in Lynnfield. It shows the many features these cars have, as well as detailed looks at both the exterior and the interior of Grand Cherokees with different trim levels. Jeeps will beep, Doors will open & Engines will growl! ENJOY!
I recorded this video back in September 2010 when the new Grand Cherokee had just come out to show a friend of mine. I had planned to upload it fast after I recorded it, but unfortunately I never found the time to do so. I hope this video will still help many people who don't know the new Jeep Grand Cherokee well and like to have a close look at it :-)
Mitsubishi Shogun review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/mitsubishi/shogun/sports-utility-vehicle/review
While rivals like the Land Rover Discovery 4 have moved upmarket, the Shogun has kept its tyres firmly in the off-road camp. It's virtually unstoppable, and it has built up a loyal customer base that appreciates its dependability and strength.
You do pay for that rugged ability on the road, where the Shogun feels coarse and agricultural to drive compared to its sophisticated rivals. It undercuts them on price though, and there's no denying it looks good. Inside it's spacious, with seats for seven in the long-wheelbase model, but the interior exhibits its rugged focus, with lots of hard and shiny plastics.
Suzuki Splash review - CarBuyer
Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/suzuki/splash/hatchback/review
If there's one thing Suzuki knows a thing or two about, then it's making small cars. The Splash is, largely, another fine example of Suzuki's ability to maximise space and efficiency. Despite being tall it still looks cute, but there's loads of passenger room front and back. Sadly, the boot is far too small to make it a serious family runabout. And while it's well built, the cabin doesn't have a great deal of flair. All three engines are cheap to run, but none especially quick.
