Review: Mercedes E-Class Coupé

As 2017 closed with a slap and a shudder, Germany’s cars were consolidating their grip on the Brexiting UK. Its big three premium brands accounted for some 30 per cent of the new cars sold – and that’s without all the Fords and Vauxhalls which many Brits still wrongly assume are made in England. Ford – nil; Vauxhall, just Astras from Cheshire.

Review: Peugeot 3008 and 508

Review: Peugeot 3008 and 508

The 3008 shares its underpinnings with Opel and Vauxhall’s Grandland X. Peugeot builds both models in eastern France and now owns Vauxhall Opel. It is a bulky five-door estate car, nominally an SUV or cross-over amalgamation of estate and “jeep”. It has higher ground clearance and you can specify Peugeot’s Grip Control. This generates extra traction on the front wheels in combination with winter or four-season tyres. It’s an effective and cheaper alternative to a genuine 4×4. Grip Control costs from £260, depending on the wheels fitted.
