changagoidem Features | Five best compact executive automobiles in Ireland

These are the automobiles that we all desire – the tightly-styled, sporting but still practical saloons and estates (usually, but not exclusively German) that trigger pangs of jealousy in others. Nothing cheap here, but some surprisingly good value all the same...

1 - Audi A4

Yes, it does look pretty much exactly like every other A4 ever made, but the current Audi four-door is smooth and soothing to drive, solidly made and practical and useful in Avant estate form.

2 - Mercedes C-Class

Is this Mercedes' handsomest automobile? Probably,…

Five of the best compact MPVs in Ireland

changagoidem Features | Five of the best compact MPVs in Ireland

Spacious and family-friendly, the compact MPV is the automobile that you buy when you need seats and space for a growing family, but you haven't (completely) given up on attractive styling or driving enjoyment.

1 - Volkswagen Touran

The Touran is based on the same underpinnings of the Volkswagen Golf, allowing it ‘compact’ status here, but it can seat up to seven, so it competes with larger MPVs too. It’s a brilliant all-rounder.

Mission: Impossible — Fallout. A automobile nut’s trailer breakdown

changagoidem Features | Mission: Impossible — Fallout. A automobile nut’s trailer breakdown

Can I just say how excited I am about the new Mission: Impossible movie? I'm old enough to remember the original TV series with Steven Hill, Peter Graves, Leonard Nimoy (yes, really) and Martin Landau. The Tom Cruise-starring films have been a bit up-and-down quality-wise (First; great. Second; awful. Third; fine. Fourth; good) but the most recent, fifth installment, Rogue Nation, was terrific and with director Chris McQuarrie returning, the sixth fillm, subtitled Fallout, promises to out-Bond Bond when it comes to entertaining spy action.

Best of all, Mission: Impossible films are generally good for a bit of all-action automobile…

What's it like, driving an electric taxi?

changagoidem Features | What's it like, driving an electric taxi?

So, now that Shane Ross is knocking €7,000 off the price of an electric taxi, what's it going to be like for passengers, and owner operators? You could buy a Hyundai Ioniq or Nissan Leaf, of course, but a far better idea for the average taxi-man might be to get Nissan's updated eNV200 Evalia electric van-based taxi.

It's just been updated with a new 40kWh battery, nicked from the new Leaf hatchback, although its 110hp electric motor and the…

Video break: Daytona in the rain

changagoidem Features | Video break: Daytona in the rain

In racing, rain is the ultimate equaliser. Some people abhor it, some adore it. If Ayrton Senna opened his curtains on the morning of a race and saw rain, in his head, he'd already won. Gilles Villeneuve once went eleven seconds a lap quicker than anyone at a sodden Watkins Glen. Eleven.

For this particular video break, we're strapped in with Leh Keen during a very wet qualifying session for the 2016 Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona. You'd like Leh. He's got quite the collection of cool machinery at home, which includes an ex-works Subaru Impreza WRC, as well as…
