My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

Top Gear Magazine awards the SEAT ATECA the best for modern families award in its latest issue.
SEAT’s first SUV named Top Gear magazine’s “Best for Modern Families”
SEAT Ateca classed as ideal for families, combining practicality, value and style
Judges won over by Ateca’s impressive array of safety and driving technology
Judging by the latest issue of Top Gear magazine, the stylish SEAT Ateca, the brand’s first foray into SUV territory, seems to be as adept at attracting plaudits, as it does British customers.
Picking up from its first UK award win only a few weeks ago with Auto Express, the SEAT Ateca is now revelling in the glory of being named the “Best for Modern Families” car in the Top Gear Best ‘Cars in the World’ issue.
Facing up to stiff competition in an already crowded marketplace, the Ateca provides drivers with the practicality, and value and necessary for a family SUV, while combining the Barcelona-based brand’s impeccable sense of style.
While space is a key feature for families with children, so are driver assistance and infotainment options – anything that can make life that little bit easier. The Ateca, which Top Gear has judged to be the best car for modern families, combines both.
Notable features include the wireless phone charger, Full Link technology for seamless smartphone connectivity, a 360-degree parking camera and a Virtual Pedal, which allows the boot to be opened, and closed, hands-free simply by waggling a foot underneath the rear bumper.
Charlie Turner, Editor of Top Gear magazine, said, “Families require practicality and safety but we cannot forget style, and the Ateca ticks all the boxes. Great dynamics, strong construction and a comprehensive range of driver-assist and connectivity options make the Ateca a great choice for the modern family.”
Commenting on the win, Richard Harrison, Director, SEAT UK, said, “This is fantastic news for our new SEAT Ateca and adds to the great momentum that it has been developing even before its launch in this country. The award is testament to what an enticing all-round package it is for families, as a desirable, high-tech, stylish and well-built SUV.”
Top Gear is Britain’s best-selling car magazine and its ‘Best Cars in the World’ issue will be fully available on 30 November 2017.
