Recent road tests
For the 2019 E450 and E400d, Mercedes-Benz has ditched its old three litre V6s and replaced them with modular alloy block turbocharged straight-sixes with integrated exhaust manifolds so the PPFs and DPFs can be bolted straight onto the blocks where they get the most exhaust heat and are thereby the most efficient.
The New Kadjar for 2019 is essentially a revamp of the original 2015 Kadjar with a new 1,332cc 4-cylinder chain cam alloy block petrol engine shared with Mercedes Benz, Nissan, Dacia and other Renault models. In the new Kadjar, outputs are 140HP with 240Nm torque and 160HP with 260Nm torque. A 6-speed manual transmission is standard, while a 7-speed EDC dual clutch automatic is optional.
The 64kWh KIA e-Niro is not just another electric car. It goes further on a single full charge than any other EV of its size, it’s also spacious, quick and fun to drive.
The 2019 Peugeot 508 SW enhances the theme established by its hatchback sibling. Great looking. Comfortable. Terrific to drive. Full of all the latest tech. And, for cynics of French cars, outstanding, almost unbelievable quality and refinement.
