Deep dive: a five-star Euro NCAP result

changagoidem Features | Deep dive: a five-star Euro NCAP result

Big, seven-seat SUVs are becoming a hot new trend, as they provide a stylish way for mums and dads to transport around large broods of children with a modicum of style - and no small hint of safety. So while they offer much in the way of space, practicality and configurability, making them an attractive proposition in the sanctitude of a glitzy automobile showroom, it's the mental 'safety net' of having a vehicle that will thoroughly protect all its occupants in the event of an accident out on the public road that's a key driver in seven-seat SUV sales.

changagoidem Features | Deep Dive: Honda CR-V Hybrid system

Hybrids have become quite the thing, haven't they? In the wake of the diesel scandal of a few years ago, and with electric automobiles still only now becoming attractive to some motorists, hybrids are filling the gap rather nicely. It helps that, in the past few years, the hybrid tech on offer has really matured, delivering genuinely impressive real-world performance and economy, which wasn't always the case before.

Even given that maturity, Honda has decided to do things a little differently with its new CR-V Hybrid. The Japanese giant has committed to offering electric…

changagoidem Features | Porsche's past, present and future

It's hard not to wander around aimlessly, agog and borderline stupefied, when you're within the hallowed sanctum of the Porsche Museum in Germany. Located in Zuffenhausen, a small satellite town to the north of Stuttgart and the place that has played home to Porsche production since the very start of this company in 1948, the museum opened ten years ago. It serves not only as a showcase for the sports automobile company's revered back catalogue, but also as a way of keeping the old Porsches in fine fettle; it's known informally as the 'rolling display', because - despite its 5,600…

The 2019 Geneva Motor Show was the place to be this week if you were in search of extraordinary superautomobiles or the latest in electric vehicle technology - or both combined into one. One such headline-grabber was the Automobili Pininfarina Battista. Packing a colossal 1,900hp electric punch, the all-wheel-drive Battista promises incredible performance for the exclusive group of buyers that can afford it.

Even rarer was Bugatti's one-off 'La Voiture Noire', a re-engineered automobile based on the Chiron that was commissioned for one serious collector. Looks are, of course, subjective, but…

Brexit and the Irish motorist

changagoidem Features | Brexit and the Irish motorist

While we all wait for Theresa May (or is it Noel Edmonds) to proclaim deal or no deal when it comes to Brexit, there are a few things that you'll need to know to navigate motoring in a post-Brexit world.

Obviously, when or if a deal finally passes the House of Commons, and is ratified by the EU, then much of this advice will be moot, as most issues will be, theoretically, sorted out by the deal. If the UK crashes out, as seems horribly likely...

Our children are our most prized possessions, but do you know how to safely - and legally - transport your children in your family automobile?
