    First Drive: Chevrolet Camaro

    Whether they recognise it the Chevrolet badge, the distinctive hockey-stick shape of the rear pillar or the Camaro’s star turn in the Transformers movie, this is a car that people are interested in. And with good reason – the Camaro is a car that is distinct from pretty much all of its European competition, no doubt because …

Long ago in a galaxy far, far away (let’s call it 1930s America) the company developed the huge off-road capable Suburban, but things have moved on and these days SUVs this side of the Atlantic are a little smaller.Sales in the sub-compact SUV sector …

    Chevrolet Hatches Affordable Plan (Chevrolet Aveo 2008-2011)

    ENGINES – Chevrolet's core Aveo fleet consists of 1.2 and 1.4-litre petrol engines. For what is effectively an urban runabout, the petrol variants make alot of financial sense. Neither of them is particularly quick but they are willing and reasonable refined engines in the real world.EXTERIOR – The Aveo’s classic hatchback …

    Station Wagon’s Just The Ticket (Chevrolet Lacetti Station Wagon, 2005-2011)

    ENGINES - Chevrolet has never been too hot on diesels so it’s a choice of two petrol motors here (1.6 and 1.8-litre), but given the car's modest price the petrol option isn't that bad. If you're into lugging loads, the latter will be better able and quieter when pushed hard.EXTERIOR - The Lacetti won't turn heads but it …

    Mighty Matiz (Chevrolet Matiz 2005-2009)

    ENGINES – It’s a simple life for Matiz owners as key to the car’s frugal, affordable character is the choice of engines. Powering this second generation Matiz is the familiar 0.8-litre petrol motor, plus a more recent 1.0-litre option. Obviously the latter is a little more powerful, although the former shouldn’t be ignored …

    Relax, It’s A Chevrolet (Chevrolet Cruze 2009-present day)

    ENGINES – With its maker’s origins outside of Europe, it’s hardly surprising that the initial focus was on petrol power. Modestly powerful units were available from launch, which did the job but couldn’t match comparable units from Europe’s finest. The inclusion of diesel engines does much to boost the car’s appeal if you’re …

    First Drive: Vauxhall VXR8 GTS

    Closely based on an HSV (the performance arm of Holden in Australia) the VXR8 delivers a calculator-busting 576bhp from its 6.2-litre supercharged V8, making it the cheapest car you can buy new with over 500bhp – and considerably less than similarly-powered rivals.
