2016 Fiat Fullback Review

As witnesses to its official “full-liner” range launch in Turin, Italy, this time we were with Fiat Professional who revealed all about their brand new innovative and versatile range which is best demonstrated by the Fullback – Fiat’s first venture into the pick-up market. Spending two days in northern Italy, we test drove a number of new commercial vehicles in urban Turin and the mountains of Pinerolo.

2016 Nissan Note Review

On first glimpse, you already notice its new sleek design which is the first indication of what’s to come when you step inside the £39,000 luxury SUV.

The XC60 is truly eye-catching and remains subtle enough to blend in around the town centre. Volvo have essentially made an SUV that’s easy on the...

2016 Fiat 500 Review

The new Fiat 500 is one of the most popular city cars on the market, and with its retro styling and wide range of customisable features, you can make it your own. The latest car to arrive at Transport Monthly HQ was the improved Fiat 500 Lounge- a slightly more costly model of the 500 that comes with a fixed sunroof as standard.   Performance The 1.2 engine is sensible with 69bhp, but for something a bit nippier around town, we’d suggest leaning more towards the Fiat 500 S 0.9 litre that comes with 105bhp as standard. The Fiat...
