The Allroad should really have been called the ‘All-Rounder’, because that’s exactly what it is. It offers so much, but it does come at a cost; a cost of £43,150 on the road to be precise.

The Mulsanne is a huge thing, so when you park it in a car park, there’s no danger of you losing it as either the front or back end sticks out further than any other car. At home I had to back it right up against my garage door to allow neighbours to pass by in their cars.
To drive the hybrid version of the Yaris is almost identical to driving the equivalent standard car. It doesn’t feel any heavier and the handling characteristics are almost identical. If anything, it’s slightly better because of its lower centre of gravity due to the weight of the batteries and where they are positioned.
My very first company car back in 1971 was a Mini Van – I say company car; it was actually the parts van that I was allowed to take home every night (even on weekends), and I had to make sure it was back at the garage every morning to do its day job.
