    It’s almost hard to believe that Suzuki’s Vitara is now celebrating its 30th year in production. It’s been through some changes of course, you can’t buy a soft-top one anymore, the V6 Grand Vitara is all but a distant memory, so too the three-door. Bluetooth and Climate control are now standard-fit across all Vitaras these days; 30 years ago we didn’t even know what they were. It’s time...

    According to the general consensus amongst all who rode in it, the Bentley Bentayga diesel I was fortunate to spend a few days with last year, was “one of the nicest cars” I’ve ever had. But then of course, so it damn well should be. It’s a Bentley for starters, and as you’re no doubt very aware they don’t come cheap. If my memory serves me correctly “my” Bentayga rang the tills at £139,100...

   Quite when we British car buyers will get tired of the SUV I really can’t say, but I’m in no doubt it will happen, eventually. People carriers were once very much the thing to have, so too hot-hatches. Both have fallen from favour and are now to be found clogging up the small ads.    So, and based upon the old adage of what-goes-around comes-around, here’s my prediction as to what the next...

No fault divorce – what’s changing? The government has announced plans to introduce a new “no fault” divorce system in the biggest overhaul of divorce laws in nearly 50 years. This article looks at what the changes may mean in practice and whether it really is possible to divorce without blame.

      The premium mid-sized SUV is the current motoring must-have. Every manufacturer worth their salt makes one, and every middle manager worth their sales bonus (or not, perhaps?) wants one. Can you imagine what they’d say at the golf club if you didn’t?  As for me, I’ve never been quite so enamoured. SUVs, premium or not, are not exactly what you call exciting. Nevertheless, one should always...
