    What do our members say in their Citroen DS3 reviews?

    The Citroen DS3 has made a big impact on the car market in the UK. It’s a stylish 3 door car with signature vertical LED DRL’s (Daytime Running Lights) and a vast range of colour combinations and graphical options. It has given Citroen a big boost and made it cool again. The original DS from the 60’s was a stylish high tech car with turning headlights and special Citroen suspension. I think everyone was surprised when Citroen brought back the DS name for a small car but it seems to have worked well and been a successful merger of historic and modern style and technology

    Fiat 500 reviews by real owners

    The Fiat 500 is a modern interpretation of the original Fiat 500 from the 60's and 70's. The car takes many design cues from the original car, including its querky dashboard and its exterior styling, but under the skin it is very much a modern small car. It is a stylish, fun, compact city car ideal for in and about the city. The car is easy to drive and surprisingly spacious for such a small car. Particularly of note is the fully opening roof, available on some models, and the wide variety of colour options available, including contrast colour wheels and specialist paintwork. There were approximately 52 thousand Fiat 500’s sold in 2014, making it the 6th biggest selling car in the UK

    Peugeot 205 reviews

    Launched in 1983 the Peugeot 205 came out of nowhere and slotted perfectly into a niche no one had spotted. The styling was exceptionally good and even today the car still holds its own against modern designs. However this was not all. The interior space was great for such a small car and the driving dynamics and light weight made the car interesting to drive even with some of its smaller engines. It was one of the first mainstream cars in the UK to come with a diesel engine option, and what a great diesel it was too, quiet and powerful, and helped start the UK’s love of diesels.

    The car was never facelifted. Despite this the 205 was still winning reviews in the early 90’s famously it beat the brand new Ford Fiesta in a motor test in 1991.

    The real claim to fame for the 205 however were the GTi’s launched in the mid eighties. Initially the GTi came with the 1.6l (115 bhp) engine and later on it came with a 1.9l (130bhp) engine making the car nimble, quick and great fun. It, along with the Volkswagen GTi of the time, created the perfect fun GTi, something todays GTi’s are still trying to recapture.

    Renault 5 reviews by real owners

    First launched in 1972 the Renault 5 was a radical new small car from the French company. The 5 was seen as huge step forward for small car design. Spacious, 5 seater with a large hatchback and folding rear seats to give it a huge load carrying capacity even compared to some of its bigger bothers. Independent suspension all round gave the car good road comfort even if it was a bouncy at times. Initially a 3 door car, in 1979 Renault launched a 5 door version with the same wheelbase and overall length. The first time this had been done in this segment.

    An all new version was launched in 1984. This had a transverse engine for the first time. The interior was upgraded and the exterior was modernised. The best loved of the new Renault 5 was the GT Turbo which had amazing performance in the dry. The Renault 5 sold well until it was replaced in 1990 by the Clio.

    Volkswagen Golf Reviews

    The Volkswagen Golf has been declared to be ‘the only car we really need’. Is that correct? to be honest probably yes. The Golf was launched in 1975 as a direct replacement to the hugely successful Beetle. It was a hard act to follow. Rather than simply updating the Beetle, the Golf was an all new car, in its way almost as radical as the Beetle. It was based on a two box design, quite radical for the time, creating a 2 or 4 door hatchback.

    Today this is very common, but back in the 70’s it was new and unique. The Golf has evolved over the years gently becoming larger and more rounded. It has also lead to a vast array of other cars based on the same platform, including the VW Scirocco, Audi TT, Audi A3 and a number of other cars from the VW group.

    In 2014 there were 75 thousand Golfs registered in the UK making it the 4th biggest selling car in 2014. There are also just over 1 million Golfs on the road in the UK making it the 5th most popular car on the road.

    The Vauxhall Corsa was launched in the UK in 1993. It replaced the Vauxhall Nova (which was actually called Corsa in Europe). The Corsa was available as 3 and 5 door hatchbacks with a range of petrol and diesel engines. It fits into the small hatchback market and competes against the Fiesta, Polo and Clio.

    The Corsa is currently in its 4th generation, although the latest version, launched in 2014, was really just a very major facelift. The Corsa is a very popular model in the UK with the Corsa being in third place in sales charts for the past few years. It is also the third most common car on the road with over 1.2 million cars on the road at the end of 2014.
