RPM TV Schedule 18 May 2016: BMW M2, Renault Kadjar, Opel Astra
It’s been the year’s most eagerly awaited performance machine. But does the BMW M2 live up to all that hype? We get behind the wheel of BMW’s most affordable M car to find out what all the fuss is about.
Compact SUV buyers are already spoilt for choice, but the new Renault Kadjar links sleek, contemporary styling to a lusty turbodiesel engine and surprising all-terrain capability. We drive it on unforgiving country roads, and across a choppy sea of dunes.
Following promising debuts by the likes of the Adam, the Corsa and the Mokka, the new Opel Astra lays down the compact hatchback gauntlet with a package that ticks most of the important boxes. Is Opel back? Yes!
For the past year, the Audi S3 Cabriolet S-tronic has added both glamour and performance to our long-term test fleet. Now it’s time to say goodbye to our Speed Yellow example – and we’re sad to see it go.
