In my experience, Citroën makes superb family cars. The C4 Picasso stands out in particular. Having taken a C4 Picasso on a family trip to Scotland a couple of years ago, I was interested to see how the C3 Aircross would compare. I was loaned an Aircross for a few days so I could form my own opinion.View Post
Over the past couple of years, I’ve driven many different Audi SUVs; the Q2, Q5 and the Q7 among them. The Audi A6 Avant was going to be a different experience. I hoped it would be a much more practical family vehicle than the Q7 yet more spacious than any of the other Audis I have driven. Without further ado, here’s what I thought.
During the half-term holiday, I saw something that stood out. At the top of the hill near our house was a group of boys on bicycles. Aged about 10 or 11, they were clearly having some kind of adventure. Despite the busy traffic on nearby roads, it was great to see kids enjoying outside play.
As a dad, I confess I haven’t driven a hot hatch or had any desire to own one for some time. For me it’s all about space, MPG and ease of moving car seats around.
I have been conducting an experiment for the past few months. Every time I’ve filled up the family car, I’ve been adding a bottle or two of Redex fuel additive to see whether it improves the car’s performance. The experiment has now finished and I am in a position to tell you what I think.
