Ford Focus hatchback 2004 - 2011 review - CarBuyer

Ford Focus hatchback 2014 review: http://bit.ly/1cSUOFi Subscribe to the Carbuyer YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/17k4fct Subscribe to Auto Express: http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/cb You'll like the fact that this is one of the best small family cars to drive, and offers a range of powerful diesels. Even though the firm suspension and sporty ride is not to as comfortable as some rivals, a January 2008 facelift has improved looks and means interior quality is a close match for upmarket alternatives like the VW Golf. ECOnetic editions offer great fuel economy, while high performance ST editions are fun to drive. Both three and five-door models are spacious, but the latter is the better family choice.

Ford Fiesta ST hatchback 2013 review - CarBuyer
Ford Fiesta ST review http://bit.ly/10nCAkZ Subscribe to the Carbuyer YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/17k4fct Subscribe to Auto Express: http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/cb "The 180bhp Ford Fiesta ST is a great fun hot hatchback that is exceptionally good value." The Ford Fiesta is a fun car to drive even in its most basic models. But this one, well it's a little bit special because under there it has a 1.6-litre turbocharged engine, which can pump out a maximum 200 horsepower Just looking at this Fiesta you can tell it has a firecracker up its Exhaust. Ford has given it an appropriately aggressive body kit, boot spoiler, larger alloy wheels, lowered sports suspension and disc brakes all round -- a fiesta first. Okay enough about the looks, you can make your own mind up about that. What I need to do is convey to you just how much fun this little car is to drive. Let's start with the engine -- it can do 0-62mph in just 6.9 seconds and tops out at 139mph. It's just so sweet to use as well. It's got loads of low down grunt yet still loves to rev. And the noise it makes is better than its rivals. Now the performance would count for nothing if this car didn't handle. And I knew it would be good -- because the normal Fiesta is brilliant through the corers - but I didn't know just how much better the ST would be. Believe me it out handles all of its rivals. But it's just not the way the Fiesta ST grips to the road that I like about it -- it's the way you can feel it gripping to the road both through the steering -- which is faster than on the normal fiesta and very accurate -- and through your bottom via the driver's seat as though the car is pivoting right beneath you. Now if all that is too much motoring journalist speak for you let me sum the Fiesta ST up this way. It is a car which makes you laugh out loud like a complete idiot. It's a car that goads you to thrash it. It's a car you drive just for the hell of it even if you have no destination. In short it's a brilliant car. Now you may think I'm getting carried away. Or you may think I'm being paid by Ford. So to prove I'm not here are some things which aren't so great about this pocket rocket. The brakes. They have plenty of feel but the Fiesta ST's doesn't from 70mph as quickly as a Renaultsport Clio. Also the boy racer looks mean it's not as classy as a VW Polo GTI. And while the ride is pretty good for a mall hot hatch this car isn't as comfy as the Peugeot 208 GTi. Also, apart from the body hugging sports seats, inside the Fiesta ST hardly feels any more special than the normal Fiesta. And it suffers from the same problems too like that confusing Sony Stereo, questionable build quality, a small boot with a stepped load bay and rear seats which feel a little bit cramped. You can overlook all this these problems though when you consider this -- the Fiesta ST is not only a better hot hatch than its rivals it's actually cheaper than them too and I'm talking by a couple of thousand not a couple of hundred pounds by the way. So it's a no brainer...





Ford S-MAX MPV review - CarBuyer
Ford S-MAX MPV 2014 review: http://bit.ly/19XdX7O Subscribe to the Carbuyer YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/17k4fct Subscribe to Auto Express: http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/cb There are plenty of boxy, dull to drive people carriers that claim to rival Ford's seven-seat S-MAX for practicality... But none are as good to look at, or feel as special from the driver's seat. Despite the generous dimensions, the S-MAX feels compact and nimble from behind the wheel. And although the two rearmost seats are for children only, they fold flat easily and there's a big boot.





Audi A8 saloon review - CarBuyer
Audi A8 saloon 2014 review: http://bit.ly/1gAKVwl Subscribe to the Carbuyer YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/17k4fct Subscribe to Auto Express: http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/cb It doesn't matter if you're looking for a car to drive, or to be driven in, the A8 is thoroughly impressive in both areas. It packs a host of clever technology to make the driving experience as seamless as possible, including lights that are connected to the sat-nav and will illuminate junctions, bend round corners and even dip when they sense oncoming traffic. A system called Audi Drive Select also features, and allows drivers to tweak the steering, suspension and gearbox to make the car more sporty or more comfortable. The cabin itself is finished in high-grade materials and is very logically laid out. Customers looking for a bit more space to stretch out in the rear can opt for the long wheelbase version.

And no wonder... it's the Korean firm's best offering yet. Good enough to trouble all comers in the growing crossover market.

Ford Mondeo hatchback review - CarBuyer
Ford Mondeo hatchback 2014 review: http://bit.ly/1d9UFil Subscribe to the Carbuyer YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/17k4fct Subscribe to Auto Express: http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/cb It's a common sight on Britain's roads, but Ford's Mondeo family car is anything but average! In fact, it's an almost flawless offering in the family car market. The five-door Mondeo has a massive boot, offers loads of passenger space and the most comfortable ride in its class. What's more, it's still fun to drive. Even basic Edge trim gets alloy wheels and air-conditioning, while top-level Titanium models are lavishly equipped. Of all the engines available the diesels are best, offering punchy performance with good economy - especially the green ECOnetic edition. Do you own this car?
