2016 Jaguar F-Pace road test review: “Grace, Space, Pace……it’s Ace”

MyCarCoach review of Jaguar F-Pace

The premium SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle) market is for luxury car makers what the Oscars after-party is to celebrities: each is desperate to get in on the action. When Porsche launched their Cayenne SUV fifteen years ago they went from zero (profit) to money-making hero. Just making sports cars is like owning a selection of race horses, they may look impressive but are extremely difficult to make money from. SUVs on the other hand, can be a licence to print Read The Rest...

2016 Volvo S90/V90 road test review by car finder Nick Johnson: “Scandinavian Smooth”

Volvo S90/V90 review by car finder MyCarCoach

Volvo has always liked to do things differently according to their bigwigs, but in the past, different often seemed to mean cars that could be best described as safe, practical and dependable. Not bad qualities in fairness, but thanks to some hefty investment from Volvo’s Chinese parent, Geely, their latest flagship S90 (saloon) and V90 (estate) now offer additional terms of endearment like sleek, handsome and modern.   This level of progress continues inside too with the offer of suitably futuristic technology Read The Rest...

2016 Jaguar XF review by car finder Nick Johnson: “A Smooth, Stirring and Sparing Operator”

MyCarCoach road test review of Jaguar XF

Back in 2007 when Jaguars still had a whiff of Werther’s Original about them, the first generation XF represented a big change of direction for the company.

2016 Volkswagen Golf BlueMotion review by car finder Nick Johnson: “Lean, keen and green”

Ask people for ideas on what car to buy and they will often reply: “just buy a Golf”. They do this not because it is the only car they think of when put on the spot, but because it does everything you ask of it so well.  However, after the recent industry-wide diesel scandal, perhaps it is time to take another look at petrol, which leads me on to this latest Golf that is powered by a tiny 1.0 litre Read The Rest...

2016 Volkswagen Tiguan by car finder Nick Johnson: “Keep calm and get connected”

MyCarCoach review of Volkswagen Tiguan

You cannot keep a good man (or women) down so the saying goes and Volkswagen has certainly been knocked hard after its emission scandal.  To borrow famously from Her Majesty the Queen, it has undoubtedly been Volkswagen’s annus horribilis.  Nevertheless Volkswagen being the second biggest car company in the world after all, have decided to fight back with a raft of new products. This second generation Tiguan (pronounced Tig-wan) forms part of this new product offensive and follows the original Tiguan Read The Rest...
