1989 Volvo 245 GLT

Volvo has announced the death of its estate cars in the UK. Stephen Bayley laments that loss with the iconically evergreen 245 wagon.

Editor's comment
STEPHEN BAYLEY
‘I am passionate about architecture and cars. Each is a design exercise involving human habitation and personal desire. With its robust structure and comfy chairs, I'd be happy to call a Volvo estate “home”. Even if it is a suburban home!'

1987 Citroen CX25 RD Break

In the history of Citroën, no wagon has offered as much volume as the CX. Combined with its hydraulic suspension, it left a lasting impression on antique dealers and large families.

1995 Chevrolet G20 Starcraft

2023 Genesis G70 Shooting Brake Sport Line 2.2D

The newest luxury brand to the UK sure is making waves and has gone from nothing to a five-model line-up, with more to come. We’ve already tested other models in the Korean brand’s line-up and here we drive the latest, the G70 Shooting Brake. And it’s an eye-catching design, with a fastback-style appearance that competes more with the Audi A5 Sportback than A4 Avant. Think of it as a more practical G70, with greater versatility and you’re pretty much there. What is clear is that the luxury brand from the parents of Hyundai and Kia are serious about making inroads into the premium segment with some seriously good products.

2022 Peugeot 308 SW Allure Premium 1.5 BlueHDi 130

You’re not going to mistake the new Peugeot 308 for anything else on the road but, while the design-led exterior is cutting edge, there’s not much that’s innovative about the diesel parts that sit under the swish bodywork. It sits on top of the EMP2 platform, a chassis development that underpins everything from a DS 9 luxury saloon to the Citroën Dispatch van.

2022 BMW M340d xDrive Touring Automatic G21

While many car makers are throwing in the towel when it comes to diesel, in some quarters, notably the Germans, it’s still the mainstay of their model ranges. And when it comes to Audi and BMW, diesel is powering their sporting flagships. Here we test the sportiest 3 Series G20/G21 diesel of them all, the G21 M340d xDrive Touring. And what a beast it is, with 335bhp on tap, plus an extra 11bhp thanks to its mildly hybridised drivetrain, together with a hefty 516lb ft of torque.
