Audi Q5 (08 - present)

Irish people know an excellent mid-sized SUV when they see one – which explains why there is so much demand for this. It is roomy for families, has smart looks and is easy to maintain on the road thanks to some frugal diesel engines. This slots in between the Q7 and Q3 and is ideal as an all-rounder. Despite looking similar to the Q7, the ... more

Audi Q7 (06 - 15)

This shows what Audi is capable of producing. It is a large but hugely comfortable SUV with loads of technology and acres of room. It is more than five metres long and two metres wide, so you can see it is a real giant of a car with serious road presence. The cabin is one of the best in class. It’s comfortable, bursting with technology and ... more

Audi Q7 (15 - Present)

The new Q7 arrived this year to shake up the premium SUV market, and that it did, offering levels of jaw-dropping comfort and refinement, and raising the bar in terms of driver-assisting technology. This car will predict sharp turns and rough terrain ahead via the SatNav, urge you to slow down, and will even apply the brakes if you don't heed its ... more

Audi R8 Coupe (07 - present)

The Audi R8 is one of the most desirable sports cars on the road today. Its dramatic styling, incredible handling and that exhilarating engine noise makes for a truly invigorating drive. The styling is loud and proud and definitely not for those not comfortable with stares at the traffic lights – the Audi R8 is for those who want to be seen ... more

Audi R8 Coupe (15 - present)

Following on from the original R8 is certainly an unenviable task - the much loved everyday supercar was a big success for Audi. This new R8 appears more than capable of keeping up with, if not bettering, its older brother. Audi’s design philosophy of “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” is evident in the new R8, it could ... more

Audi TT (99 - 06)

The TT broke the mould and has become a modern icon for its looks and drive. Irish people just love it and there are always plenty looking to buy one second hand. That distinctive body shape and looks set it apart. As a sports car, it ticks so many boxes. The cabin is neatly designed, comfortable and there is a lot of technology to hand. Even 15 ... more

Audi TT (06 - 14)

You will recognise the TT shape anywhere and it goes from strength to strength in terms of equipment, style, drive, technology and residual values. The chassis has aluminium to make it lighter; there are small back seats and the engines are superb. You can really have fun driving this. It has lots of pace and the engines add to the enjoyment. It ... more

Audi TT (15 - Present)

The third and latest generation TT seems to have done the impossible and improved on perfection. The shape is still instantly recognisable and the head-turning good looks prevail, as do the brilliant handling, impressive performance and top-quality interior – made even more impressive now with a 12 inch LCD touchscreen located behind the ... more

Bentley Continental Flying Spur (05 - 12)

Bentley have always been the cornerstone of luxury cars. They look great, sound great and not many people have one so you will definitely stand out from the crowd. The traditional bold mesh Bentley grille makes it instantly recognisable, while the rounded edges, short bumper and low roof give it the modern, understated feel. The cabin is one of ... more

BMW 1-Series (04 - 11)

This divided opinion when it first hit the road but it is a testament to BMW that they went on to make a real success story of it. Over the years it has become popular here with a lot of them now on our roads. It comes as a hatchback and coupe and is highly practical. There is a nicely designed cabin with comfortable seats, soft-touch materials ... more
