Toyota iQ hatchback review - CarBuyer
Toyota iQ hatchback 2014 review: http://bit.ly/JYrIJc Subscribe to the Carbuyer YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/17k4fct Subscribe to Auto Express: http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/cb It's not big but it is quite clever. Toyota's iQ city car is just three metres long but it can carry two adults and two small children - and is very well equipped. It's at its best around towns, where its compact size makes it easy to park.Running costs are low but if you intend to rely on the iQ as your only car, think carefully about the kind of trips you make. For example, you do have to choose between passenger space or luggage space -- you can't have both.
Fiat 500C convertible review - CarBuyer
Fiat 500C convertible 2014 review: http://bit.ly/1cTgUHL Subscribe to the Carbuyer YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/17k4fct Subscribe to Auto Express: http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/cb On first sight of the Fiat 500, you could be forgiven for thinking you had stepped back in time... Fiat's recreation of its famous 1960s city car is so faithful; you really can park the new and old models next to each other and compare like for like. Following on from the massive success of the 500 hatchback, Fiat wasted no time in removing the roof to create the diminutive 500C cabriolet. It's not a true convertible, though, as only the centre section of the roof folds down, and the window frames on either side remain in place. The range of small and cheap to run petrol and diesel engines from the hatchback is carried over, and unsurprisingly the 500C drives similarly to the hatchback, with light and easy controls. The same cute, retro looks are a big part of the appeal, and a big selling point for the 500.
Renault Twizy review - CarBuyer
Renault Twizy 2014 review: http://bit.ly/1gbzo63 Subscribe to the Carbuyer YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/17k4fct Subscribe to Auto Express: http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/cb The electric Renault Twizy city car offers urban drivers something genuinely different -- if you can live with its inherent limitations. The electric Renault Twizy is a revolution in personal transport. The futuristically styled car offers space for two, sitting in tandem, and its small size means it is perfect for driving around and parking in town. It is charged via your home supply: 3.5 hours will see it completely topped up, at a cost of around £1. This will allow a claimed range of 34-62 miles depending on the demands of the traffic conditions. Although the futuristic, 'open-plan' styling may be something of an acquired taste, the innovative Twizy starts to make more sense if you think of it as a scooter with a roof rather than a car with, in its most basic form, open sides -- and no heater. In the UK, the Twizy will be called the Renault Twizy 80 ('80' refers to its top speed in km/h).
Fiat 500 hatchback review - CarBuyer
Fiat 500 hatchback 2014 review: http://bit.ly/19ZMejz Subscribe to the Carbuyer YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/17k4fct Subscribe to Auto Express: http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/cb With its retro looks, the Fiat 500 scores big with drivers who want their car to make a bold statement. It's a case of form over function though, for those with growing families -- the 500's rear seats, and small boot are too small to seat all but the very youngest children in comfort. That said, if practicality is not at the top of your wishlist the 500 is an excellent choice. It has a smart interior and a range of efficient petrol and diesel engines. A new two-cylinder engine, launched December 2010, offers almost 100mpg. Both hatchback and cabriolet versions of the 500 are available, and for those who crave extra performance, a potent Abarth version with 150bhp is also built. Do you own this car?
