The X2 will be offered with just three engines at launch – the sDrive20i petrol emits 134g/km of CO2 and is claimed to return up to 51.4mpg, while the 187bhp xDrive20d diesel emits 126g/km and returns 61.4mpg. The higher-powered diesel, the 228bhp xDrive25d, returns 55.4mpg and emits 133g/km of CO2, and is capable of sprinting to 62mph in 6.7sec.
When the war ended, Miller and the other nine members of the group pitched themselves as a package deal to some 100 U.S. companies. Only one company, the Alleghany Corp., responded.
Bad weather raises the chances of an incident occurring, but if you are paying attention to what is going on with your car and your surroundings, then you can increase your chances of being safe on the road. Look as far ahead as you can to anticipate any situation, but also be aware of what's going on underneath you by the seat of your pants and what you can feel the front wheels doing through the steering wheel. This will give you all the information you need to know that all is progressing smoothly, and will also tell you when something isn't right.
The special issue will include tests on the best 1,500cc cars on the market, the secret to upgrading your car for just £1,500 and the best used cars you can buy for £1,500. You’ll also find part one of our Christmas Gift Guide, not to mention all our usual news, tests and product reviews.

Indeed, he was right: it is a petrol-electric plug-in hybrid (PHEV) – bang on-trend for our changing times, despite actually having been on sale in the UK since 2014. Underneath our Mitsubishi’s long bonnet is a conventional 2.0-litre petrol engine mated to two battery-driven electric motors, one at the front and one at the rear, enabling the Outlander PHEV to be driven by engine power alone, by the batteries or by a combination of the two. These batteries can be charged a little while the car’s on the move or plugged into the mains for a much more sizeable dosage. Fully charged, our PHEV should then have an electric-only range of around 30 miles. Perhaps more impressively, its official fuel consumption is listed at 166.1mpg and its CO2 figure as 41g/km, which is extraordinarily good for such a large and practical five-seat SUV.
