A modern motoring legend is dead – the iconic WRX/STi, aka Impreza – at least for now, in the UK. So, to pay our respects in this second Subaru special of ROAD magazine, we test drive the last of the line, the WRX STi 340R in the Lake District. Subaru says they may bring it...
Cars designed with female buyers in mind who like a bit of poke under their right stiletto are pretty few and far between. And whilst we’re not saying the three we’ve picked to feature in this month’s ROAD Magazine are either (a) exclusively feminine or (b) the only ones, it’s a good start. We’ve picked...
Since the Fiat 500 was launched in 2007, on the 50th anniversary of the original, the Italian brand has gone from strength to strength. They’ve sold over 100,000 Fiat 500’s in the UK alone now and the urban chic city car has picked up numerous awards, as have Fiat’s innovative range of lively eco TwinAir,...
Manufacturer of the decade – now there’s an accolade eh? The recent award, gifted to Lexus by Auto Express magazine, is a shiny top shelf addition to the already brimming Lexus trophy cabinet.
Some cars take decades to reach cult status, unrecognized in their time. Others are instant stars, even before their launch to the public. And this issue of ROAD Magazine features two cars that have sling-shotted straight into the cult car cachet – Toyota’s GT86 and Subaru’s BRZ.
For the first time in the magazine's brief history, Green Car Design has been chosen as an official media partner to Mondial de l'automobile 2012. It's something founder Hannah Macmurray could never have imagined when she set out in 2008 to explore the juxtaposition between car design and greener forms of propulsion.
This month's issue is dedicated to the Japanese ‘Zoom Zoom’ brand that is Mazda, a manufacturer who aim to make cars that are fun, different and exciting to drive, as well as catering for the family car sector brilliantly.
What do you think of when you picture Volvo? Think towing a caravan on the A303 with a tailback longer than the Seine? Think accident-prone old biddy drivers with brown leather driving gloves? Think again..
We are back from our extended Summer holiday, and launching straight back into action with a mélange of motorsport magic. This month’s Road magazine features the exciting news of the Atom Cup UK – a one-make series for the amazing new Ariel Atom Cup race car; focusing on fun, close racing and fabulous hospitality on some...
Welcome, or should we say bienvenue to this très Gallic Peugeot special of ROAD Magazine. Peugeot’s current advertising slogan is ‘Motion & Emotion,’ which when you cut through the adman-speak hints at cars that are involving, ney, fun to drive, and live with.
We love dirty V8 NASCARs, anti-lag Group B monsters, flame-spitting 24Hr race cars, killer coupes and anything fast, ferocious and frivolous here at ROAD. But we've also got one eye on the future.. quite possibly free of Super and 110RON race fuel.
We make no apologies for this Subaru special issue of ROAD Magazine this month, so if you're not a fan of the incredible Pleiades-star cluster brand, you can still read Neil Cole's column on the Monte Carlo rally and our report from the last month’s Autosport Show.
ROAD's December Christmas issue, "Motorsport Monsters", features TV presenter, Neil Cole, who’s writing a new monthly motorsport column for us. Neil’s first column comes from the epic Race of Champions (RoC) in Dusseldorf and it’s fabulous!
This month, ROAD magazine stretches from the icy tundra of Lapland – ice driving with four-times WRC Champion, Juha Kankkunen in supercars – to the humid Far East – VW Scirocco R-Cup racing in Shanghai – and then on to the dry deserts of Las Vegas – for the 2011 SEMA show.
This issue we finish the 2011 motorsport season in style: First up, we’ve got two times ex-WRC champion, Marcus Gronholm and north-east driver, David Binks, taking on British Rallycross Championships at Lydden Hill in Kent in the awesome ‘Best Buy’ Ford Fiesta Mk7. Gravel spitting stuff.
Most of us born in or after the 1970s started our motoring life in front-wheel-drive cars. For many, the thrills, spills and grins of a car pulled, not pushed, are too strong to resist, and folk often stick with the cheeky inside rear wheel cocking FWD cars over RWD and 4WD for life.
This month, Road is on Summer holiday, traveling from the far East to the Western coast of America. We've got two Stateside reports from Road first lady Ashley Van Dyke – covering the awesome X Games in downtown LA, and going to one of the world's greatest car auctions at Orange County Fairgrounds, by Barrett...
