Car reviews and road tests
The Toyota RAV4 comes with Toyota Optimal Drive, so making it one of the most efficient 4x4s, but how did it perform when tested at one of the UK's leading mountain biking trail centres - in a foot of snow?
The new, third generation Toyota Prius hybrid has even lower emissions than the previous car - either 89 or 92g/km CO2 depending on the model - but the key question has to be, is it any better to drive?
Everyone wants the traction of a 4x4 at the moment, but 4x4s are perceived as being completely unacceptable from a green point of view, so surely the new BMW X1, with four-wheel drive and low emissions, sounds like an ideal solution - however can it cope with snow and ice?
The ECC C1 ev'ie is a Citroen C1 with the petrol engine removed and replaced with an electric motor, and it's available now, so it's the first proper four-seat electric car available in the UK.
The new Kia ceed EcoDynamics comes with Intelligent Stop & Go (ISG) which brings its emissions down to 110 g/km CO2 so should you consider this car?
Any motorist out there who is not convinced by the potential of electric cars should be made to drive the Tesla.
The Lexus 400h was the first premium SUV to be offered as a hybrid; its successor, the RX450h, is now out and it still has no rivals, but does it represent real progress?
