03 Oct: Ford Edge Vignale

… Ford Edge Vignale 2.0 TDCi AWD … A few months back I drove the ‘Sport’ version of Ford’s new Edge SUV, but the ‘Sport’ label was more of a trim spec than suggesting this was a souped-up, hunkered down 4×4. That was a nice car, but this one was […] Read more »

26 Nov: Ford B Max

Ford B Max, 1 litre EcoBoost … Say it with Flowers … Anyone who doesn’t have small children or elderly relatives, especially a nippy mother-in-law and carnaptious father-in-law, won’t get the point of the Ford B Max. It’s a small car with big doors. That’s it. If you don’t want […] Read more »
