★★★★★ | Mercedes X-Class, The last vehicle you’ll ever need It had been 3 months since Z day and at least a month since we last heard gunfire. Peeking through the boarded up windows, the first signs of sunlight were showing through the black skies. Our supplies were almost gone, it was time we hit…
The Ford Focus ST is the go to in this sector but doesn’t come close to the i30N as a driver’s car.
Our Volvo XC60 was genuinely breathtaking. It is the most advanced and the closest to an autonomous vehicle we have ever driven. The XC60 can steer, brake, and see better than us and uses these attributes to keep us safe.
To sum up, the Cee’d is great fun. We had it for a week and had a blast. It’s great fun, fast, excellent handling car with a very high-quality interior for around £25k new.
If you’re looking for fun in a small package but want a touch of class and quality. The S1 is right up your street. It looks subtle and classy and is very well built. It’s a bit small for me and there’s not a lot of room in the back but so what, i sit in the front.
★★★★★ | Suzuki V-Strom 250 ABS The bike The bike we have here is a Suzuki V-Strom 250 which falls perfectly into the A2 licence* class. It’s an adventure bike, with longer travel suspension, upright seating position. Think of it like an SUV. Looks good, rugged, can handle all sorts from off road to motorways…
It’s really fast, the handling is another level, the brakes are outrageously good and the interior is sporty and classy. It’s a great package all around.
Don’t rule out a cheaper helmet.
Suzuki has blessed the SV with a lovely gearbox. Under hard acceleration, you don’t need to use the clutch going up the ‘box, the gear change is so sweet and very fast.
Build quality is great and its pricing is easily comparable with the competition, most of which have smaller engines too, but maybe it’s a bit long in the tooth?
