McLaren 650S Spider first drive review by Nick Johnson

MyCarCoach review of McLaren 650S

As days go, being offered a drive in McLaren's latest and fastest convertible up and around God's Own Country, or Yorkshire to us non-natives, is a very big tick in the life box. At this point I would love to say that it all took place under crystal blue skies, but you cannot have it all, or can you?

2014 Citroën C1 first drive review by Nick Johnson

MyCarCoach review of Citroen C1

It's ten years since the original Citroën C1 was launched, which is well beyond middle-age and it was prime for replacement. Thankfully, an all new model has just rolled into town and like its predecessor it shares its oily bits with the new Toyota Aygo and Peugeot 108 models.

All-New Jeep Cherokee – first impressions (30 minutes)

Jeep Cherokee 2.0 Limited 140PS 6-speed Manual 4x4 Leaving its big brother the Grand Cherokee to try and compete with the likes of the X5, Touareg, ML-Class, Discovery and other larger SUVs, the Cherokee is Jeep’s mid-size offering, jostling with the Qashqai, CX-5, CR-V and RAV4 at the lower end of the spectrum, whilst trying to entice would-be X3, Q5, and Evoque buyers at the upper end. What taste was I left with after half an hour behind the wheel on Read The Rest...

Maserati Ghibli Diesel first drive review by Nick Johnson

MyCarCoach review of the Maserati Ghibli

Yes you did read that title correctly, the name Maserati is being written alongside the term 'diesel'. Years of tradition are being undone because Maserati are on a mission to reach global sales of 50,000 by 2015. By comparison, last year, Maserati sold just 10,000 units and so to achieve this extraordinary growth, diesels are being ordered in double-quick and even an SUV will be offered shortly. So banish those perceptions and read on to find if a Ghibli Diesel Read The Rest...
