Ford Ka+ Plus Active 2019 1.2 3 Cylinder Review

Wondering how the latest Ford Ka+ Active fairs?

Well we've just reviewed this rather well priced Crossover come city car from Ford. The model we had came with a 1.2 3 cylinder petrol engine with 85ps, you can also get another petrol model and 1 diesel too, they are all 5 speed manual.

Now how does the Active differ? Well you get 15" alloy wheels, AWD style cladding and rough road shocks.

Find out how it drives, if it's roomy and whether it's economical in the review.

The Audi Q5, we had this fabulous SUV for 7 days allowing us to truly see what the latest Audi quattro really like. The video answers the question, What is the Q5 2018 like to drive? and looks at the functionality, practicality, build quality and of course the styling.

The quattro on this model is amazing, much the Q2 we tested, amazing handling, great responsive engine and relatively economical.

ABF Conversion Mk2 Golf Volkswagen

It's been sometime since our Mk2 Golf GTI has had a mention, well last week I recorded a short video explaining what the plan was with our Mk2 ABF conversion and how far we'd got. The video shows some footage of the car and explains what we've managed to do, and what we hope to start in the coming weeks.

We chose the ABF engine route as it's a strong engine with great specs and pretty much is identical in resemblance to the KR 16v, the only difference being a 1cm taller block.

Hope you enjoy the video and watch out for Part 2.
