Cars at the press of a button:

FUEL economy and emissions of planet warming gasses have never been bigger issues for motorists than they are today. Rather than lusting after bigger and more potent engines, large sections of the public have turned their attention in the opposite direction and are more interested in extracting the maximum mileage from each tank of fuel they pump. This trend is good for the environment, good for our pockets and, if they can successfully tap into the demand for more frugal vehicles, it can be good for the manufacturers too. Suzuki is one brand which is aiming to attract cost conscious buyers and the 1.0-litre Splash mini MPV will have an important role to play. The Splash originally made do with a 1.2-litre petrol engine and a 1.3-litre diesel. Now there’s a 1.0-litre petrol to consider as well. It’s aimed at customers who care substantially more about keeping money in their pockets than the performance of their vehicle because priced at just £500 below the 1.2-litre engine, it gives away 18bhp and 2.4s on the 060mph sprint to that unit. Of course, if your everyday driving consists of battles to and from work through the rush hour traffic or rarely takes you out of the confines of urban streets, you’ll scarcely notice the difference in pace between the two units. The 1.3-litre diesel engine’s torque would be more of a miss. It produces 190Nm at 1,750rpm where our little petrol can only manage 89Nm at 4,800rpm but you’ll need £2,000 more to step from the 68bhp 1.0-litre into one of those. On the open road, it’s likely that the 1.0-litre engine will be found out a little with its sluggish 14.7s 0-60mph time and 99mph top speed but Splash target customers are unlikely to venture too far from home on a regular basis. Space inside is quite generous with the mass of headroom adding to the roomy feel. The boot is pokey but when the rear seats are unoccupied, you can fold them down to make room for the shopping. The 1.0-litre Suzuki Splash is only available in GLS trim with the plusher GLS+ level reserved for the larger engines. Pricing looks reasonably competitive compared to other superminibased MPVs but there is a fly in the ointment

Suzuki will hope that its generous equipment levels tip the balance. It’s the bottom line that will tempt buyers into the entry-level Suzuki Splash. It promises to be an extremely cheap car to run. It’ll save you money over the larger engines in the showroom, particularly if you remember to get your haggling hat on. Then there’s the 56.5mpg economy, 5mpg better than the 1.2-

Emissions are just 120g/km which are the same as the diesel and carry big tax advantages while insurance costs will also put a smile on your face. The Splash is one of the finest small MPVs out there, offering decent practicality within the confines of its small body and proving a hoot to pilot around town. The boot is small and the ride firm but the build quality, equipment levels and lively handling all impress.


City car that’s simply sensational FACTS

C1 SPLASH CITROEN’S C1 is a great example of simplicity in car manufacturing. Citroen makes no bones about the fact that this is a city car in a basic, pared down form. You can see and feel where corners have been cut and weight has been shaved to keep the vehicle economical and affordable but none of it matters because the C1 does what it needs to do in an area of the market where cost is king. It’s hard not to admire the C1’s honesty and in special edition Splash form, the little Citroen is at its most disarming. Citroen actually offers a 1.4-litre diesel engine with the C1 but that hoists the price up by a fair whack. Most buyers will find it best to stick with the feisty little 3-cylinder petrol engine and as luck would have it, this is the only unit offered with the Splash special edition model. The 1.0-litre petrol feels more alert and responsive than the oil-burner anyway and buzzes about the place emitting a surprisingly

You won’t be going particularly quickly in a straight line but there’s definitely fun to be had in the C1’s hot seat. The Splash special edition is based on the VT model from the standard C1 range but it adds a series of extras. There’s air-conditioning thrown in as standard as well as electric front

windows and remote central locking. The Where the C1 scores an almost unbeatable mark is in the field of cost of ownership. The nippy 1.0i 68hp petrol engine emits less CO2 than any other petrol powerplant currently on sale in the UK, boasting lowered CO2 emissions of just 106g/km and a combinedcycle fuel consumption figure of 62.8mpg.

GIRL TALK with June Neary

Tough guy 4x4

THERE’S a lot of talk in the specialist motoring press about what is and what isn’t a ‘proper’ 4x4. The confusion has sprung from the growing penchant among manufacturers for creating vehicles that display the rough and ready looks of an offroader but have little or no off-road ability. Some of them don’t even have four-wheel drive. It can all be a little confusing for the humble car buyer but there are models with which you always know where you stand and amongst them is Jeep’s Cherokee.


purely to perambulate outside city centre shopping arcades. The live rear axle is also another reminder that the Cherokee is built extremely tough. While the ride on road isn’t as composed as the most car like compact 4x4 models, the Jeep feels better able to withstand some abuse than any of its rivals.

VALUE FOR MONEY The Cherokee is offered only in wellappointed Limited trim, a specification that includes features such as leather seats and a leather-trimmed steering wheel and gear knob, big alloy wheels, stability control and air conditioning.


With decent ground clearance, a proper low range transfer box, Hill Descent Control (with the automatic gearbox option) and a clever SelecTrac II four-wheel-drive system, the Cherokee comes well equipped for off-road work. Build quality can best be described as functional. The American domestic market doesn’t seem to place too much store on materials quality and the Cherokee feels built down to a price. The plus side of this is that it’s very rugged and doesn’t take much recourse to the manual to establish how the controls function. The feel is a good deal more masculine than its rather rounded predecessor, a car that gained 60 per cent of its sales from women. This time


So for your money, you’re getting a serious car with a decent level of equipment.


round the target demographic is a little more hairy of chest.


Only one engine is offered to UK buy-

ers but it’s the most relevant one available to Jeep; a 174bhp 2.8-litre four-cylinder diesel. It’s not the most refined powerplant

in the world but it suits the rugged feel of the Cherokee very well and leaves you under no illusions that this is a vehicle that’s not been designed

If you’re after a compact 4x4 that can cope with being driven off-road, there aren’t too many choices available. The Jeep Cherokee is certainly one of the few that could hack it and that you’d have confidence in when the going gets tough. It’s also well equipped and reasonably composed on the road but there are more refined and sophisticated options out there.

Just what the driver ordered

THERE are quite a few key criteria to tick off when selecting a miniMPV and Renault think they’ve got them all covered. Safety is the key issue, customers prioritising crash protection for their families and the Scenic boasts a full five-star Euro-NCAP crash test result. Next up is practicality, and Renault score here too, with years of experience producing this sort of vehicle. The final driver is running costs. The 1.4-litre version of the latest entry-level Scenic that we examine here not only wears a distinctly friendly sticker price but scores big in terms of fuel economy, insur-

SCENIC 1.4 ance bills and spares costs. No wonder Renault have such high hopes for this model. The 1.4-litre car’s 100bhp engine isn’t the most inspiring powerplant we’ve come across but it does get the job done with a minimum of fuss. Only if you load the Scenic up to the gunwales will it struggle. If you can afford another £500 or so, those looking for something a bit peppier can opt for the 1.6litre models which offer marginally better fuel economy and much better performance figures. Three trim levels are offered,

starting with the entry-level Authentique at £13,945. Then there’s the well equipped Expression which tacks just over £1,000 onto the price and the Dynamique, a car with vaguely sporting pretensions, topping off the range at up to £15,745. Each is well equipped and the Scenic’s equipment levels need to be taken into account when pricing the car against rivals from Ford and Volkswagen. Although it may not major on excitement when it comes to offering what mini-MPV buyers really want, the Renault Scenic 1.4-litre range looks to have the bases covered.

Weekend for bargains

... and brand new Insignia goes on show MOORLAND MOTORS MOORLAND Motors will be holding their Big Event Weekend next Saturday and Sunday, February 14 and 15. Star of the show will be the all-new Vauxhall Insignia. This will be the first opportunity to see this fabulous new car in the showroom and Moorland Motors’ team are eager to demonstrate its state-of-the-art features to all their customers. The Vauxhall Insignia marks the start of a new era for Vauxhall and there are plenty of reasons for optimism. The manufacturer has worked hard to broaden the appeal of the Insignia beyond that of the fleet-favourite Vectra and it certainly looks to have been successful. Its efforts to inject extra style and flair to the look of the car should be much appreciated, the front camera arrangement is neat and the optional four-wheel-drive system is an interesting addition to the medium range sector.

This car is as sharp to drive as its Mondeo rival and the clever FlexRide system gives it a real technological edge. Overall, what’s crucial is that the basics of this car seem to work. The Insignia looks a very desirable, cleverly designed package that will give its rivals something to really think about. The launch weekend of the Vauxhall Insignia will also see the promotion of the exciting new car ranges of Vauxhall, Chevrolet and Saab as well as a massive choice of approved used cars, all at incredibly low prices. There really has never been a better time to replace your car as both prices and deals have never been better!

It is also nearing that time when the registration plate changes and the new ‘09’ plate will be available from March 1, 2009. The Moorland Motors’ Big Event Weekend will be an ideal opportunity to select your new car ready for its ‘09’ plate. Buying a new car is an exciting experience and Moorland Motors’ sales team will ensure that it is also a rewarding and satisfying one. They have a wide range of models available from Vauxhall, Chevrolet and Saab along with a comprehensive choice of specifications and options. Their sales team will be happy to demonstrate the car of your choice and arrange a test drive while you are there.

If you require finance to assist with the purchase of your car, then the dealership can offer you a range of competitively priced packages that can be tailored to your specific circumstances. To make the process as smooth as possible, they will also take your existing vehicle in partexchange. Why not make it a date for the Moorland Motors’ Big Event Weekend?

A great range of choice

dealer profile Fiat 500 range (left)

Fiat has latterly built a reputation for having a wide range of excellent powerplants, especially at the smaller end of the product portfolio. Indeed, the 1.3litre 16v Multijet diesel engine fitted to the 500 is so good that it overshadows the otherwise excellent pair of petrol powerplants. Five or six speed manual transmissions are offered and the 500 has been designed to replicate the original car’s nimble feel and ability to put a smile on its driver’s face. There’s such a cheekiness and personality to its design that people would have bought the car even if it was irredeemably awful in every other respect.

Fiat 500 Abrath

Fiat’s famous ‘city button’ as featured in the standard 500 models is changed to a sport button in the 500 Abarth. Instead of making the steering lighter, it weights the helm up for more feel and a sportier driving experience. Abarth badging is everywhere from pride of place on the grille to the rear wings, the 16” alloys wheels, the steering wheel hub and the tailgate. Even the engine gets an Abarth scorpion crawling across it. At the front, a pair of fog lights is set into the air-intake and these jewellike additions are mirrored by the chromed exhausts that protrude from the rear diffuser. Side skirts and flared wheelarches dominate the flanks along with the distinctive Abarth racing stripe decals.

Fiat Bravo

It’s easy to forgive the Bravo any minor shortcomings when you walk round the car, taking in its beautifully integrated detailing and elegant proportions. Just as the Grande Punto added a touch of the exotic to the supermini class, the Bravo does the same for cars the next size up. The interior feels very well built. Bright finish plastics lift the cabin and the controls are easy to figure out without recourse to the manual.

Fiat Doblo

Fiat have been beautifying their range of late, taking a scalpel to the excesses of the Multipla, launching the quite startling Grande Punto and now giving the Doblo a nip and tuck. The rather odd looking front end has been thoroughly revised, Bigger headlamps and wider underbumper intakes give the Doblo a little presence without looking like it’s been tagged by the ugly stick. The changes are likely to put the Fiat onto the shortlists of many buyers who previously rejected it on the grounds that it looked a little unconventional, there’s a choice of three trim levels – Active, Dynamic and 7-seat Family.

Fiat Grande Punto

Fiat isn’t about to let this Grande Punto fade into the background as a forgotten fashion accessory in the supermini market, hence this useful package of upgrades. The things that matter haven’t changed though. It still looks great and the 5-star Euro NCAP rating testifies to the fact that it’s still one of the safest small cars that it’s

CHORLEY FIAT possible to buy. Above the ‘Active’ entry-level, there’s basically a choice between ‘Comfort’ versions (badged ‘Dynamic’ and ‘Eleganza’) and ‘Sport’ models (badged ‘GP’ and ‘Sporting’). The GP versions look ideal for younger drivers who wanted a more aggressive look but need lower insurance premiums. This variant gets unique, sporty (that word again) interior trim, ‘sports’ instruments (argh!), dark-tinted headlamps, front foglights, a rear spoiler and 16-inch alloy wheels. They’re pretty sporty too.

Fiat Multipla

The Multipla is great fun to drive. the long wheelbase and the more rigid body mean that the Multipla handles better. Certainly, the direct, beautifullyweighted steering helps, as does a slick, snappy gearchange manipulated via a stick protruding from the fascia. And what a fascia: with various satellite areas for the ventilation controls, the air vents and the built-in stereo. Perched on top is a crescentshaped speedometer incorporating a fuel gauge, warning lights - but no rev counter. There are only two engines on offer and neither is particularly rapid

Fiat Panda range

The range starts with the 1.1litre Active, from where you can then step up to the 1.2 Dynamic. Above this are the 1.2 Dynamic AirCon and the 1.2 Dynamic SkyDome, effectively giving customers the choice of air conditioning or a vast electric sun roof.The next priciest model is the 1.3-litre MultiJet Dynamic diesel, followed by the wellspecified 1.2 Eleganza. Most city car ranges would stop there but the Panda line-up finishes with some very attractive ‘boutique’ models. The 1.2-litre 4x4 even offers all-weather offroad ability, as does the Panda Cross. Finally there’s that sporty 100HP version which features a 1.4-litre engine, a six-speed gearbox, lowered suspension, all-round disc brakes and a big bagful of fun thrown in. The upholstery on the seat covers is completely washable because as any parent knows, accidents do happen. The colour scheme is lively with orange airvent surrounds and special mats for the foot wells.

Fiat Sedici

Fiat’s Sedici compact 4x4 looks a clever package. It’s a Compact SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle), but also a versatile family hatchback you can afford. Inside, the fascia is attractively designed with some decent and hard wearing materials used. The combination of a raised driving position, height adjustable driver’s seat, rake-adjustable steering wheel and deep front quarterlight windows offer the driver a commanding driving position with good all-round visibility.

ONE CLUBMAN IF the Clubman is the MINI in its most utilitarian form, it should make even more sense with the MINI’s most utilitarian engine. It all bodes well for the MINI One Clubman. Say what you like about the MINI’s iconic design, zesty driving experience and exemplary economy, it’s not the most practical destination for around £12,000 of your hard earned cash. Those stingy rear seats and the less than captious boot on the hatchback model mean that family journeys can be a bit of a squeeze. The Clubman was created to address this point and did a decent job without setting the world alight. More affordably priced in One form, the Clubman could be at its most appealing. The MINI One Clubman has a 1.4litre petrol engine and with 95bhp, it isn’t the most vigorous performer. Give the accelerator pedal a sound stomping and, if you’re slick enough with the gearbox, 60mph can be reached in 11.6s. That and the 114mph top speed makes this the slowest MINI Clubman but neither the Cooper’s 9.8s nor the Cooper D’s 10.4s are particularly rapid and yet those cars are more than capable of getting their drivers grinning. Like all MINI products, the Clubman’s fun factor comes from its responsive steering, firm suspension and tight body control, the One Clubman should be no different, particularly as it shares the Cooper’s sporty suspension set-up. With a longer wheelbase and around 2cm of extra roof height plus identical components as far back as the B-pillars, there doesn’t seem to be much scope for the Clubman to dramatically exceed the interior space of the MINI. Crucially though, it’s 24cm longer overall thanks to the extended rear overhang and that has helped BMW squeeze in 8cm of extra rear legroom while upping the boot capacity from a paltry 160 litres to a respectable 260. The rear seats take the form of a


Beat the squeeze


three-seater bench in the standard car but the standard MINI’s two-person pods can be reinstated as a no cost option if you don’t need the middle berth. The Clubman is a five-door car but the doors aren’t exactly where you’d expect them to be. It’s business as usual at the front but access to the rear seating is through a single ‘suicide’ door on the right-hand side. Hinged on its rearmost edge so

that it opens in the opposite direction to the front doors, it’s positioned on the right-hand side of the Clubman and there’s no equivalent on the left. It means that rear seat passengers in right-hand drive markets like the UK are forced to exit into the road. The One Clubman comes in at around £1,200 less than the Cooper Clubman, a decent saving that will bring this more practical MINI into range for a wider group of buyers. The MINI One Clubman can return

52.3mpg on the combined cycle which is very good for a petrol model and its emissions are a similarly strong 130g/km. Anyone looking for a small car with loads of space and practicality built in might not appreciate the MINI Clubman. There are far better ways of accommodating the family comfortably for this kind of money. As a MINI with a bit more space, however, it’s a fine product and that holds true regardless of which engine is installed.

Bigger, better and more powerfully built than ever A4 2.7 TDI WITHIN the ranges of any serious car maker you have the niche models that can be a bit adventurous, the image building halo products and then you have the cars that represent the seed corn.

Make it slightly bigger, slightly more powerful and better built than ever. Throw a few innovations trialled elsewhere at it. Above all, do not make it radical. The A4 is certainly better than its predecessor to drive. Moving the engine lower and backwards in the chassis has helped weight distribution for a subtle difference in chassis dynamics. The other headline feature of this latest A4 is the fact that it sits on the

prices are adjusted accordingly, the 2.7 TDI looks good value. For a premium of around £1,200, you can also opt for an estate ‘Avant’ version. Here, space in the back is rated at 490 litres with the rear seats in place and 1,430 with the rear bench folded. A combined fuel economy figure of

42.8mpg is an excellent return for a model of this potency and even the urban figure of 34.9mpg is not to be sniffed at. On a longer run, this A4 can chalk up nearly 50mpg which means an effective range of over 700 miles from a tank full of diesel. Get inside and there’s still the reassuring feel of solid build quality, with soft touch finishes and excellent ergonomics. The mark of a great car is its depth of engineering - how long and hard its designers have thought about how it’s going to be used. The A4 impresses in this regard. In all likelihood, this 2.7-litre model is going to remain a niche player in the A4 range; a compromise between the bigger selling 2.0 and 3.0-litre diesel models. It’s a car that deserves a little more credit as a model in its own right, offering a mature and well-rounded alternative to BMW and Mercedes that stacks up well as a financial proposition.

ROOMSTER FANCY an affordable compact vanbased MPV? Something like a Renault Kangoo or a Citroen Berlingo Multispace? Then you probably wish it was a little less, well, van-like. In which case you’re probably going to like the alternative we’re looking at here, Skoda’s Roomster. It’s a competitor in this sector, sure, but without the commercial vehicle origins. The Roomster is a car of two halves – or ‘rooms’ as the Skoda PR machine would have us refer to them. The “driving room” is the area occupied by the driver and front passenger and it feels very much like that of a conventional family hatchback. The driving position is comfortable, with a good degree of adjustment and much less upright than in most MPV products. Quality materials have also been used and build quality is strong. As you progress rearward, you enter the Roomster’s “living room” and it’s here that the vehicle’s van-like silhouette pays dividends. The roofline steps up, allowing the rear seats to be mounted 46mm higher than those in the front: this boosts the space available to passengers. Leg and headroom are both extremely generous and there’s a light, airy feel to the space thanks to the large windows. An optional panoramic glass roof increases this effect with Skoda pointing out that children become bored more quickly if they don’t have a good view of the scenery. The rear seating has also been thoughtfully designed. All three sections of the rear bench are individually foldable and removable. They also recline as well as sliding fore and aft so that owners can choose either to maximise passenger legroom or to bump up capacity in the extremely generous boot behind. This boot is accessed through a large tailgate which lifts to reveal a capacity of 450 litres. Then, depending on the position of the rear seats, owners have the option of increasing that cargo space right up to a truly van-like 1,780 litres – which is achieved when all three

The roomy vroom seats are positioned in the garage at home. All this helps to open up a wide range of potential interior configurations for the Roomster – a real strength when it comes to meeting the varying needs of modern families. Skoda have laid-on six engines for buyers to choose from and these are equally split between petrol and diesel. The petrol range includes a 70bhp 1.2-litre unit, then there’s an 85bhp 1.4 and a 105bhp 1.6. Dieselwise, you get 70 and 80bhp 1.4-litre three-cylinder options or a 105bhp 1.9-litre TDI.

There’s no doubt that, with its composed handling and clever interior, the Roomster is a far more sophisticated proposition than your typical vanbased MPV but it’s priced accordingly. The basic price of around £10,000 for a 1.2-litre model in base Roomster 1 trim looks attractive enough but the range-topping Roomster 3 car stretches to over £14,000. All derivatives look well-equipped, however, with air-conditioning, front, curtain and side airbags, bodycoloured bumpers and an MP3-compatible CD stereo.

The top Roomster 3 derivatives really pile it on, adding the panoramic glass roof, parking sensors and cruise control amongst other items. The other option is the Roomster Scout which piles on the off-roader design cues to create a more imposing air. It’s not four-wheel-drive though. The unorthodox styling and clever cabin of the Roomster mean that, at last, we could be looking at a Skoda that you buy with your heart as well as your head. Taking the van out of the van-based MPV equation could prove to be a masterstroke.


CAR: Skoda Roomster range PRICES: £10,020-£14,125 - on the road INSURANCE GROUP: 2E-5E CO2 EMISSIONS: 138-170g/km PERFORMANCE: [1.9TDI] 0-60mph 11.5s / Max Speed 113mph FUEL CONSUMPTION: [1.4TDI 80bhp] (combined) 54.3mpg STANDARD SAFETY FEATURES: ABS, front, side and curtain airbags.


MPV with personality plus won’t send you to sleep S-MAX THERE was good reason to sit up and pay attention when Ford started making some big noises about its SMAX MPV model and that self same model was named as European Car of the Year 2007. For a start it’s got the right sort of shape. There’s room inside for seven people but it’s a radically sportier vehicle than the latest Galaxy model with which it shares the same underpinnings. Ford point to the fact that the SMAX in fact shares just a handful of exterior parts with the more conventional Galaxy, the headlamps and bonnet having the same part numbers. The comparative height of the vehicles (1676mm for the Galaxy and 1607mm for the S-MAX) shows that the sleek, hunkered down appearance of the sportier S-MAX is not merely down to clever penmanship. This is the sleekest people mover this side of a Mercedes R-Class. Recent improvements include the


CAR: Ford S-MAX range PRICES: £18,205-£27,894 - on the road INSURANCE GROUPS: 10-14 CO2 EMISSIONS: 164-224g/km PERFORMANCE: [2.5 Zetec] Max Speed 143mph / 0-60mph 7.4s FUEL CONSUMPTION: [2.0TDCi] (combined) 44mpg STANDARD SAFETY FEATURES: Twin front, side and curtain airbags, ABS, EBA addition of a 175bhp 2.2-litre TDCi model, a flexifuel version (FFV) capable of running on any mix of bioethanol and petrol in the same fuel tank, plus extra equipment including Bluetooth compatibility. Let’s get to the heart of any MPV style vehicle – the seats. Ford’s designers appear to have become fed up

with Vauxhall taking all the plaudits for clever seating solutions and have come up with a system of their own. FFS (Ford FoldFlatSystem before you attribute a baser meaning to that acronym) allows 32 different seating permutations. The second and third rows of seats all fold flat to form a genuinely huge load floor that mea-

sures 2.0 by 1.15 metres which is about as big as a double bed. In addition to the Ford FoldFlatSystem, a number of lashing points are located across the floor and on the cabin sides, helping to prevent your belongings from destroying themselves if you do fail to resist the Ford’s sporty character. If you do wish

to run the S-MAX in removal van mode, it’ll heave around up to 2,000 litres of goods with all the rear seat folded flat. There are also no fewer than 26 different cubbies located around the cabin so you’ll need to know where you left that key/credit card/wedding ring or it could be a lengthy search. In total, there’s a full 90 litres of oddment stowage in total. Prices start from under £19,000 for a 2.0-litre Edge with a pair of diesel engines just above that, the 1.8 TDCi 125bhp Edge and the 2.0-litre TDCi 140bhp Edge. You can also get Ford’s 6-speed Durashift automatic allied to 2.0 TDCi 130bhp power. The 2.5-litre engine is quite a tool, in effect being an almost direct transplant of the unit found in the Focus ST. This is good for 220bhp and looks good value in either Zetec trim or range-topping Titanium guise. Most MPVs are enough to put you to sleep. In the S-MAX, Ford have developed one with a bit of personality. Let’s hope they’re rewarded for doing so.

Set to be a winner MORE striking to look at than the Vectra but also more spacious and with an improved engine range, the Vauxhall Insignia looks like a winner. The optional four-wheel-drive system should go down well at the top end of the range helping the Insignia to extend its appeal to more private buyers. The people that made the Vauxhall Vectra the success that it was would ultimately have a big part to play in its downfall. The car was popular through all its various versions but popular with the wrong people. Fleet managers loved the dependable style of this low cost family car but private buyers were less enamoured. Too many found its prosaic qualities a little, well, boring. Now the Vectra’s replacement has arrived and with its new name comes a new focus. The Insignia is offered with five engines initially. For petrol buyers,


THE INSIGNIA there’s an entry-level 1.8-litre 140PS ECOTEC unit, then a rather large gap to a 220PS 2.0-litre turbocharged unit, sitting below a 2.8-litre V6 260PS range-topper. If you want a CDTi diesel, there are a couple of fresh 2.0-litre ones, developing either 130 or 160PS. The Insignia is offered in two or fourwheel-drive guise with the 4x4 model benefiting from the clever adaptive all-wheel-drive system pioneered by Saab. It adapts the distribution of torque between all four wheels instantaneously to enhance traction and handling. This should give the Insignia a key advantage over its predominately 2WD rivals. A clever adjustable damping ‘FlexRide’ system has been developed for this car, enabling drivers to choose

a chassis setup that matches their own particular driving style. In addition to the Standard ride setting, FlexRide enables the driver to select a relaxed (Tour) setting or a firmer suspension set-up (Sport) by pressing one of two buttons on the instrument panel. Offered as a five-door, a four-door or an estate, this car tries for a dynamic, head-turning appearance and isn’t unsuccessful. The five-door hatch and four-door saloon versions are nigh-on impossible to distinguish at a glance. Both have the same bowed roofline which drops dramatically towards the rear and, perhaps the Insignia’s signature stylistic device,

the “blade” feature that’s cutaway behind the front wheelarches. At the front, all Insignia models feature a bold chrome grille with the latest Vauxhall badge at the centre. It sits on a raised centre section which runs down through the bumper and up to merge with the lines of the Insignia’s fluted bonnet. The result is as easy on the air as it is on the eye with Vauxhall claiming the sector’s best aerodynamics at 0.27Cd, one of the most slippery shapes of any car. Is this car as sharp to drive as its Mondeo rival? Perhaps not, but there’s not much in it and the clever FlexRide system gives it a technologi-

cal edge. There’s not very much on the debit side, unless you count the big gap between the two four cylinder petrol engines’ output and their unremarkable fuel economy. Overall, what’s crucial is that the basics seem to work. The Insignia looks a desirable, cleverly designed package that will give rivals something to think about. Experience the Insignia at the Moorland Big Weekend (Saturday, February 14, Sunday, February 15). Ride and drive available all weekend, book your test drive now to avoid disappointment, limited places available. Prices range from £15,601 to £28,867.

ROBINS AND DAY THESE days, driving and owning any car is more pleasurable than ever before. Nevertheless, when the time for servicing - or an MOT - does finally arrive, you'll want an experienced place to go that keeps running costs low. Keeping expense to a minimum is often difficult when it comes to things like tyres, exhausts, batteries, clutches, shock absorbers, servicing and all the costs associated with MOTs. So it's natural to think no further than your nearest 'fastfit'-style operator. However, many don't realise that the kind of deals on offer there are often available at your main dealer. Here, as well as prices comparable to any of the high street chains, you'll find all the experience that is directly relevant to your particular make and model of car, in other words, the best of both worlds. This is all the more surprising

Expertise at your service when you consider that at a main dealer only genuine original equipment parts are used, parts of better quality, designed specifically for your car to last longer and keep you safer. If you've a family to consider, that's important if you're to have the peace of mind of being able to count on reliability. Main dealers are regularly perceived as being much more expensive than local garages and in some cases it's true. However, it's always best to take the long term view, calculating the lifetime cost of main dealer servicing and

weighing that against the money you'll make back when you sell your car with a full dealer service history. In many cases the differences are marginal and you'll be getting all of the benefits above for very little outlay. For prestige cars, its financial madness not to get the car main dealer serviced. It's not a case of can you afford to, more a case of can you afford not to? Robins And Day offers: Mot only £29.99. Services from only £69.99, all makes, models, petrol or diesel. Tel: 0844 5671566.

used cars The Gazette

Your essential Friday guide to buying second-hand vehicles

represented by the Ford Focus CC and the Vauxhall Astra Twintop. If you have a few more bob to spend, then the Volkswagen Eos gets a solid recommendation.

AFFORDABLE CONVERTIBLE THE market for affordable convertibles is popularised by cabriolet versions of the VW Golf, the Vauxhall Astra, the Ford Escort, the Rover 200, the Renault Megane and the Peugeot 306. They must be differentiated from Roadsters, a class which really needs to be addressed separately. While Roadsters are generally bought as second or third cars, these hatchbackbased Cabrios are usually expected to function as everyday tools, come wind, rain or snow.


You can buy a lot of trouble at the bottom of this particular market sector, turning what was supposed to be a cheap and cheerful buy into a depressing money pit. Early Cabriolet versions of the VW Golf, Renault 19 and Vauxhall Astra from the early Nineties are quite plentiful in the £1,000-£2,000 bracket but these will all have led hard lives and you’ll do well to avoid them. Better to save up a bit longer and set your sights on the more recent age bracket. The Peugeot 306 Cabriolet is probably the pick of the bunch with its sleek Pininfarina styling having weathered the years fairly well. Alternatively,

Then there’s the Volvo C70 to consider. Cynics may say that it’s just a badgeengineered Ford Focus but it has a definite feelgood factor.


Become a convert

there’s another French offering that can still draw admiring glances, the versatile Renault Megane Cabriolet.

The final choice we’d look to is the Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet in Mk III guise, manufactured from 1998. Although its face suggests Mark 4, beneath the lines is a slightly older but still very solid chassis. Just don’t expect

the last word in sparky performance, though.


The big seller in this sector of the affordable cabriolet market has been the Vauxhall Astra Cabriolet, initially marketed as the Coupe Cabriolet. Based on the sleek Bertone-styled

With cars of this kind, it’s even more important to insist upon a full service history. Many low mileage examples will have been garaged over the winter without the hood up – which is bad news – and servicing may well have been skipped.
