1968 Citroen DS 23

CITROEN DS23 PALLAS When in 1955 Citroen released its DS19 ‘Goddess’, media commentators reviewed the car in tones previously reserved for objects arriving from the depths of outer space. Hydro-pneumatic suspension, assistance systems for the steering, brakes and gearshift lever and inboard front disc brakes were among the advances pioneered by this extraordinary design. By 1968 the rest of the world had begun adopting aspects of Citroen’s radical package; however, Citroen wasn’t finished exploring the range of quirks it could pack into a medium-sized sedan. One new feature to perplex…

Opel Omega Caravan

Summary: Value for not too much money… a real Opel! Faults: Opel Omega Caravan This car is in use as a taxi, and so it suffers more than a ‘normal’ car.

Dashboard display lights very difficult to replace (and need to be replaced quickly). Clutch works badly (without feeling). Xenon. Paint falls from the door undersides. Needs to go to…

Subaru Impreza WRX STI

After a long time in a wilderness of exchange rate-induced irrelevance, the Subaru WRX STI is back – and at a price that demands the sort of full appraisal that only an Autocar road test can provide. Fuji Heavy Industries set up its motorsport division, Subaru Tecnica International, in 1988. The first SImpreza WRX STI was launched in 1994, based on the 247bhp Japanese-market ‘GC8B’ Impreza. Power grew to 271bhp later that year. Chief tester There’s no mention of the word ‘Impreza’ on the boot lid The most famous STI…

Nissan Silvia S15

It’s hard for me to be impartial about the Nissan Silvia: my first car was a 1983 200SX five-speed. I thought it was the coolest car ever. Unfortunately, I totalled it the very first time I drove it without adult supervision. (The story of that mishap, and its aftermath, can be read here.) I still think the 200SX and its successors are pretty cool cars. Nissan stuck with the rear-wheel-drive compact coupe formula for a full nineteen years after Toyota compromised on the Celica. Nissan’s reputation with the Silvia in…

Suzuki Landbreeze coloring page

Suzuki Landbreeze

Japan has not escaped the SUV craze, but on this crowded archipelago with little or no wide-open wilderness to explore off-road, small SUVs appeal to a wider slice of the ute-buying public. This tiny 2+2-door Suzuki runabout promises easy manoeuvrability and parking (it’s 14 inches shorter than a Jeep Wrangler), along with fuel-efficient hybrid-drive performance. It’s also intended to be mostly recyclable, with an aluminium-intensive body and chassis and tires made of all-natural non-petroleum-based materials

Nissan Skyline R34

Trundling gently up and down this road for car-to-car shots, we’ve held up a couple of cars, and the old Ford Ka has been delayed a bit longer than most. So when it slows to a halt as we’re turning around for another run, I’m braced for a scowl or maybe a hand gesture. I look across and the lady in her 50s is gesticulating alright. But she’s giving the double thumbs up and smiling madly. Before pulling away she shakes her head like she just can’t believe she’s seeing…

All that grunt benefits the Land Cruiser on-road as much as it does off-road. In our testing, the 5934-pound SUV made its way to 60 mph…

Mazda RX-7

After many years of rumours, Mazda has finally confirmed that the beloved RX-7 will get a successor by the end of the decade.

What’s more, the company also confirmed it will have a new-generation rotary engine under the hood. Mazda didn’t say when the production car will arrive in showrooms, but it seems that the next-gen RX-7’s development depends on…
