News: COPING WITH DRIVING IN WET WEATHER: ADVICE FROM IAM ROADSMART

Obviously being Britain we didn’t really enjoy this as it was just a little too hot and there was not enough rain to keep the well manicured lawn from going an unsitely shade of beige. This was clearly unacceptable and not how things should be done.  To compensate for this the 1960s behaved themselves for a time but the decade of free love was certainly not perfect weather wise. It’s difficult to preach … Continue reading News: COPING WITH DRIVING IN WET WEATHER: ADVICE FROM IAM ROADSMART

News: FORD EXPANDS SPORTY ST-LINE RANGE WITH NEW MONDEO ST LINE UNVEILED AT 2016 GOODWOOD FESTIVAL OF SPEED

What is it about Ford, whereby they can take a ‘real life’ family car such as the Focus, add two letters and create a fire breathing monster?

2016 Volkswagen Tiguan SE NAV 2.0 TDI: Good Day Sunshine

The 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan SE NAV 2.0 TDI, to give this classy SUV it’s full name is certainly a handsome looking beast. Anyone familiar with the VW family will surely recognise the overall silhouette as being immediately relatable to the famous Golf and the associated quality of bodywork is plain to see. And yet, I’m ashamed to say that MotorMartin must start this review with somewhat of an apology as, like many of you out there in the world of ‘real life’ motoring, I had preconceived ideas and notions about the products available from Volkswagen themselves. Namely that perhaps they … Continue reading 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan SE NAV 2.0 TDI: Good Day Sunshine
