Cars

  • VW Golf Mk8

    Start your engines!

    Looking for a new runaround to get you from A to B? We've rounded up 6 of the best new cars to buy in 2020 - go on, treat yourself to new wheels.

  • Review: Range Rover Evoque

    Want a steer on the best cars but without all the boring blokey bits? Revving up on stage left, please find the latest Muddy review. And the star of the show? The very pretty Range Rover Evoque. Encore! Encore!

  • Rev her up!

    Oooh Jaguar E-Pace, you're a bit saucy aren't you? Muddy puts the stiletto to the metal to test drive this 4x4.

  • landrover logs lights on forest

    WIN! Luxury £1000 Land Rover Experience

    OMG, how fun is this?! Mud wrestle in a Land Rover then loaf in luxury at a 5-star hotel on us.

  • sharp angular architecture at Silverstone racecourse stairs leading to entrance

    OMG braaaaake!

    For new drivers or those of us who *sniff* may have had a prang or two, go pass the Silverstone driving test.

  • *The* Christmas present to buy your bloke (or blokesses)

    As someone not particularly excited by racing/sports cars – seriously, it’s hard for me not to stifle a yawn when horsepower is mentioned – it’s with a kind of wonderment that I can report I did a test drive in an Aston Martin around Silverstone and had a turbo-charged blast. I mean, it was soooooo […]

  • Ever considered leasing a car? You will now!

    Have you ever had that sinking feeling when you know your car is on its way out, but you’re not sure how the hell to afford another one? The Muddy car is on its way to the motor cemetery – a 15 year old Saab estate, high on safety features but soooooo low on style […]

  • Muddy drives: The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

    Electric hybrids. They’re like buses (except, er, with lower emissions) – you wait forever to try one and then they all come along at once. Last month I had my first experience of an EV with the BMWi3. This month it’s been Stiletto-to-the-Metal with another hybrid, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. This time I’m going to […]

  • Muddy drives: the BMW i3 electric car

    I’ve been desperate to try an electric car for ages. A friend of mine bought one recently, and was absolutely singing its praises – not least for the £6k she saves on petrol and taxes each year. Six grand, people!! In the blink of an eye, electric cars have somehow gone from being a never-gonna-work […]

  • Stiletto to the metal: the Mini Countryman

      Do you read car reviews? No, me neither. Because they’re not really aimed at us, are they? It struck me recently because I’d started thinking idly about the amount of driving I do (a lot) and how my whopper 7-seater isn’t perhaps the most cost or emissions-friendly option now that I no longer have […]
