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

My Car Coach review of Land Rover Discovery Sport by car finder Nick Johnson

It is quite possibly all the car you could ever need, but now there is a new addition to the family: Discovery Sport. Is it worthy of the name?

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...
