The Alfa Romeo QV
Our information today on a current vehicle release comes to us with the Giulietta QV from Alfa Romeo which is on sale right now across many countries world wide. The Giulietta range has proven to be one of the firms successful vehicle lines available on the market but, how well does a new QV variant do the range and could it be a vehicle worth investing into?. It was just four years ago now that our very first look into the Giulietta arrived on the road and now here we are four years down the line, one generation and two specifications later and we welcome in the QV to the world.
The QV is also referred to as the Cloverleaf and is a hot hatch version of the Alfa Romeo vehicle. The car shares much in terms of the design structure and styling to that of the ever popular Leon vehicle from Spanish company Seat. It receives a fairly standard rate of power but could be that ideal vehicle for you, if a small family run about is on the cards in terms of what you are are looking for. It contends with some of the biggest rivals on the road such as the Volkswagen Golf and the Ford Focus but does it share the same passion that these vehicles do?.The car is looking very nice in the 'Magnesio' colour design that it has been given. Its slim headlights and two exhausts at the back give it even more of a strong contender as far as looks are concerned. A turbo engine and a 152mph top speed rate also add to the excitement that the QV delivers. Look out for the vehicle as it is available from your local Alfa Romeo showroom right now.
BMW voted the most reliable brand in the United Kingdom
BMW have been voted in as the number one most reliable car company in the whole of the United Kingdom. The rankings were released this month which shows that the 3 series model from the firm has been voted as the number one reliable company car in the whole of the country. The organisation were also voted in for this years number one car manufacturer in the country. In total for both achievements, over 160,000 vehicles were taken into consideration with an online customer survey of which BMW topped the charts on both occasions. It was from 2010 until 2012 that the 3 series claimed the top spot for reliability that was until last year when their rival company Audi jumped into the first position. BMW are now back stronger than ever though and making an impact with the 3 series. With a look into the reliable vehicle rankings, it was Volkswagen that narrowly missed out at the top this year with the Golf which was the most purchased car of the first six months of this year in Britain. There is no doubt that the competition has certainly been fierce with Honda maintaining the very same fourth position place as last year for overall brand reliability.
A total of three BMW vehicles made it into the rankings for 2014 with the 1 series in eight place just missing out to the latest S Class from Mercedes Benz. The 5 series model had a strong showing in the fifth spot in the ranking with the 1 series topping the charts. Can the German company keep this momentum up in 2015 as they are introducing new models throughout the course of the next year which include additions such as the X5M and X6M or can other companies reclaim the grand prize for themselves?.

The car will make history by holding its place as the quickest small style estate car that Mercedes Benz will have to offer.

The car has been confirmed to be the latest variant in the long and prestigious Golf line up and will show off its dominating power and performance rates when it arrives next year. An all wheel drive platform,a turbocharged TSI engine stored underneath the bonnet and a DSG gearbox all point towards to the powerful drive that fans have been looking for.
