Kick started the week by travelling over to London for the world premiere of Jaguar's new XE saloon. A hugely important automobile for the British marque, this is its opportunity to really take on the big German brands. Jaguar is of course currently riding on the crest of the cool wave following the superb F-Type and a new, sportier RS range. Add to that modern re-workings of the E-Type and MkII and you suddenly have a brand that it appears can do no wrong. Naturally so, the XE's launch…

With 'silly season' now getting into full swing my week started off gently enough with a morning of automobile returns. First to go back was the Lexus IS 300h, which surprised and disappointed me in equal measure. Its ride I found to be rather good, certainly up there with many of its premium rivals, but I just couldn't find much love for the automatic transmission. I also said goodbye to the Nissan LEAF, which you'll be able to read a full review on very soon. Taking their places this week is the latest Range Rover…

Phone wars: is there a choice beyond Apple's AutomobilePlay and Android Auto?

Whether you want it or ultimately use it, smartphone connectivity is coming to a automobile near you, and soon. Various manufacturers have tried in-automobile connectivity with differing levels of success but most have not moved beyond the simple make/answer calls function that works perfectly on an old Nokia 9210, but fails to take advantage of your all-singing-all-dancing Apple Galaxy One Z or whatever. Safety campaigners may say we do not need much more functionality than is currently offered, but for a generation that has grown up with a smartphone glued to their right hand that is not enough. What they…

Volkswagen Group Ireland recently held a refresher day at Mondello Park, bringing 40 vehicles from Volkswagen, Audi, Skoda, SEAT and Volkswagen Commercials along for journalists to sample and reacquaint themselves with. Sitting in the paddock were the likes of the Audi A3 Cabriolet, Skoda Superb L&K, Volkswagen Amarok Canyon and SEAT Leon ST FR, all with tanks full of juice and keys in the ignitions for the assembled journalists to sample on the roads around north Kildare.

Of course, as the event was taking place at a racing circuit, the various brands had also brought along some fast toys…

As if I hadn't already had my fill of classic automobiles at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, my first day back in Dublin for a while would see the arrival of Mk1 Volkswagen Golf on the driveway. Getting to be amongst the first to drive a multitude of new automobiles on a regular basis is indeed both a privilege and a pleasure, but I'm particularly looking forward to driving this Golf. Volkswagen Ireland sourced it recently enough and it would seem that the previous owners have been most kind to it too. I just need…

It's getting well and truly into silly season in terms of both national and international launches, so having a relatively quiet Monday is a welcome treat. After dropping back the Opel Insignia Country Tourer I nip across to Baldonnel to collect the latest version of Range Rover's Evoque. The styling is aging well and despite the popularity of the baby Rangie, it still looks fresh. My particular test automobile is equipped with the new and more efficient nine-speed automatic transmission, which will be put to the test later in the week.
