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.

WHAT CAR AWARDS - The Hyundai i10 takes two awards at the latest ceremony.
4th consecutive What Car? win for the multi award winning city car
i10 Premium SE also wins “Best buy more than £10,000” in the city car category
On sale from 12th January with prices starting from £8,495*
The New i10 has been awarded What Car?’s Best City Car award for the 4thconsecutive year, holding off both a new challenge from the Suzuki Celerio and the established competition from the Skoda Citigo.
Steve Huntingford, What Car? Editor said: “We have no hesitation in singling out the i10 as our winner: it’s cheap to buy and to run, comfy, and easy to drive in town. But it also has luxuries that you rarely get in this class, plus a five-year warranty.
The i10 feels like a class above the rest, with the most room, the smartest interior and the smoothest engine.
The i10 is a proper, grown-up car, not just a mere runaround, and that’s why it’s our favourite city car.”
The New i10 1.2 Premium SE also won “Best buy for more than £10,000”. Huntingford commented: “we recommend top-spec Premium SE trim, which now gets class-leading infotainment on a 7.0 inch touchscreen, sat-nav, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth and a DAB radio. You also get climate control, heated seats and a heated steering wheel – all on a city car. The rest of the i10 remains as appealing as ever.”
Tony Whitehorn, President and CEO, Hyundai Motor UK said “Since its launch in 2014, i10 has continually received praise from both industry and buyers alike and has become one of the stalwarts of our range. For 2017, we have introduced New i10 which not only introduces a fresh new look but also brings technology to the segment that is usually only found in the classes above.”
