FIAT 124 SPIDER


of 1960s retro styling yet with bang-up-to-date engineering and technology. My test model was the flagship Lusso Plus, priced


at £25,050 and very well equipped, including 17-inch alloys, heated leather seats, upgraded BOSE sound system, auto lights and wipers, auto climate control, 7- inch touch-screen, Bluetooth, sat-nav, connectivity, push-button start, LED headlights and rear-view camera. The cabin, like in most small sports cars, has room


FIAT’S 124 SPIDER IS A CHARISMATIC TWO- SEATER CONVERTIBLE SPORTS CAR, WITH QUICK PERFORMANCE AND AGILE HANDLING, YET A RELATIVELY RARE SIGHT ON UK ROADS. Priced from £ £21,050, its big-selling main


competitor is the legendary Mazda MX-5 yet people may be surprised to learn that beneath its smart Italian suit, the Spider runs on an MX-5 platform! Fiat has cleverly re-designed all the


bodywork to give the Spider its own distinctive look and personality, tweaked the suspension and steering and added its own 140 hp 1.4 litre turbo-petrol engine. The result is a beautifully-styled

EYE-CATCHING TWO SEATER WITH ZESTY PERFORMANCE AND OFFERING A HUGE FUN FACTOR

PEUGEOT 5008 GT LINE


MULTI-PURPOSE VEHICLES ARE DECLINING IN POPULARITY AS LARGER SUV MODELS TAKE OVER, AND A NEW CONTENDER HAS JUST BEEN LAUNCHED WHICH IS SET TO MAKE A BIG IMPACT. The new Peugeot 5008 is a seven-seater with a lot of cachet and a spacious interior. Priced from £24,495, the new 5008 is radically different from its predecessor and will attract a raft of younger family buyers who appreciate a charismatic street image yet with day to day practicality. The 5008 - which

for two adults but minimal stowage space, not even any door-pockets. There is a useful lockable box behind the front seats and a 140-litre boot, just big enough for two squashy bags. The fabric hood is manually operated (it can be done with one hand) and there are two rollover hoops for additional safety. Top speed is 134 mph, the 0-60 mph time a quick 7.5 seconds. Fuel economy is 44.1 mpg combined. Its responsive acceleration, precise steering, slick gearshifts and well-set suspension deliver a terrific driving experience; zippy, grippy and agile – just what you want from a sports car. You can live with this car as daily transport if you always travel light though I think many buyers would probably have


a Spider as a second car or as weekend fun-car, and in those roles it is absolutely perfect.


model has a wow factor. The engine range includes petrol and diesel units with manual and auto gearboxes available and there are four trim levels. On the road, the 5008 drives smoothly and is


composed on the corners with minimal body roll. The car has a smaller than usual steering wheel which looks and feels a little odd but you quickly get used to it. Driving position is excellent, with good visibility,
