Drivebites are brief road-tests of cars that have come our way recently. They are presented in this compact format because we have not had the opportunity to measure fuel economy over an extended mileage or to examine every detail of the car in day-to-day driving.

Each car is driven over the most varied possible test route, adopting a wide variety of driving styles. Testing handling and braking to the ultimate extremes is usually not possible, but the cars are always subjected to energetic driving styles over demanding routes.
