BMW Z4 roadster review - CarBuyer
BMW Z4 Roadster 2014 review: http://bit.ly/1f7SVb0 Subscribe to the Carbuyer YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/17k4fct Subscribe to Auto Express: http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/cb The BMW Z4 is the firm's best roadster yet -- and it gets a folding metal hard top instead of a cloth roof. It also has smooth, supple suspension, and a chassis that is tuned for comfort. That means the car is slightly less fun to drive quickly than a pure sports car, but it's much more relaxing to use on a daily basis. The new roof shuts out more engine, wind and tyre noise from the cabin, but it eats into boot space when it's folded down.
Nissan 370Z review - CarBuyer
Nissan 370Z 2014 review: http://bit.ly/1gbC3MY Subscribe to the Carbuyer YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/17k4fct Subscribe to Auto Express: http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/cb The Nissan 370Z is a performance bargain, but its heavyweight controls won't be to everyone's tastes. The rear-wheel-drive Nissan 370Z outguns rivals like the Porsche Cayman and Audi TT with impressive performance for the price. It's powered by a 322bhp 3.7-litre V6, and manages 0-62mph in 5.3 seconds -- so its performance comfortably matches its extrovert looks. A driving enthusiasts' car, the 370Z demands skill and commitment, yet it's not so brawny that it's a difficult or intimidating car to drive. Recently updated with a 'GT' special edition that got a range of updates designed to make it more comfortable and refined, with revised suspension and more kit.
Mercedes SLK review - CarBuyer
Mercedes SLK 2014 review: http://bit.ly/JYaTOF Subscribe to the Carbuyer YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/17k4fct Subscribe to Auto Express: http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/cb Mercedes-Benz has a summer hit on its hands with the third generation of its SLK-Class cabriolet. Like its arch-rival, the BMW Z4, this roadster majors on comfort rather than outright performance, but the 1.8-litre turbo petrol engine is responsive, and still offers an impressive turn of speed. The suspension irons out bumps, but switching it to Sport mode stiffens it up to improve cornering performance. The interior is good quality, but the highlight is the optional Magic Sky Control roof, which features special glass that allows the driver to adjust the transparency.
Porsche Boxster review - CarBuyer
Porsche Boxster 2014 review: http://bit.ly/1980BHI Subscribe to the CarBuyer YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/17k4fct Subscribe to Auto Express: http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/cb The Porsche Boxster sets the standard in the small roadster class, as it's sharper and more enjoyable to drive than rivals such as the BMW Z4, Mercedes SLK and Nissan 370Z. The powerful flat-six-cylinder engines are mid-mounted, which makes the handling sharp, while the interior --inspired by the larger Porsche 911 -- is modern, upmarket and thoughtfully laid out. This entry point to Porsche ownership is arguably the best all-rounder in Porsche's range, and is available in standard 2.7-litre Boxster and 3.4-litre Boxster S guises. The fabric roof folds down in nine seconds, while a pair of luggage areas in the front and rear make it pretty practical for a sports car. Roof up, the interior is quiet, but the stiff suspension reminds you that you're driving a pure sports car.
