What sort of content can people find on your website?


"You’ll find classic car features, car show reviews and updates, the latest classic car news, interviews with the stars of the car world on TV, product reviews, plus video feature films. So basically anything to do with classic cars. Plus lots of photos!"


What is it that sets your website apart from other automotive blogs?


"Take to the Road’s feature articles and videos are all about the story behind classic cars. Every car has been on a journey, as has the owner. So we interview the owners, chat with them about their car and what makes it special. So we are basically an online magazine in a way. Take to the Road also gets access to some of the best classic car shows around the UK, which means we get up close to some rare and cool classics. And we’ve been fortunate enough to get to interview the stars of tv shows like Wheeler Dealers, Gas Monkey Garage, Salvage Hunters Classic Cars and Goblin Works Garage. To name just a few."

 


What does your website have planned in the next few years?


"Well 2020 is actually the 5th year Take to the Road has been publishing. So to mark that we are revisiting some of the owners and cars we featured since 2015. So it will be a catch up with them, see how their cars are getting on, what improvements have they made etc. And the rest will just be getting out there and meeting more owners of cool classics and telling their story."

What sets your website apart from other automotive blogs?

So we inform and empower them with car reviews (by women for women), general advice, information about successful women in the motor industry as well as female motor racers and stuff like that."

 


Where do you see your website going in the next few years?


“Looks like we're going to be more about greener motoring options than ever. Buying electric and either DIY or using trusted garage professionals for regular car maintenance. We're all in this together and common-sense says that if we don't make motoring greener in the short term we may find we don't have the luxury of our motoring independence in future!”

The ultimate goal is a TV Channel that documents our reviews, adventures, passion projects and the challenges we face as we do what we do…"

We are simply car lovers who love to blog and share our independent views and advice without bias. Secondly, we do not and never will have any annoying pop-up ads or nags that will interrupt your reading.”

9. PetrolBlog (petrolblog.com)

Retro car blog celebrating the cars you loved (and the ones you didn’t)

 
Twitter | YouTube | Facebook | Instagram


What sort of content can people find on your website?

“Unique content. That doesn’t mean that it’s good content, it’s just that PetrolBlog doesn’t like to follow the crowd. The primary focus is on cars of the 80s and 90s, because that’s what makes PetrolBlog tick. Occasionally, the site will feature new cars, because it’s important to keep an eye open for the PetrolBlog heroes of tomorrow. As things stand, there are 12 cars in the PetrolBlog garage, ranging from a £100 Renault Laguna and £200 Renault Safrane to a massive Italian-German motorhome and Volkswagen Corrado VR6. These four vehicles encapsulate PetrolBlog in a nutshell.”

What is it that sets your website apart from other automotive blogs?

“I think it would be too high-brow to list things that sets PetrolBlog apart from other automotive blogs. There’s plenty of room for car blogs of all shapes and sizes – it’s great that there’s a wealth of talent and independent voices out there. The site has never chased hits or page views – it’s comfortable in its own space.”


What does your website have planned in the next few years?

“Amazingly, PetrolBlog has been running since 2010, so surviving the next few years is the first task. Video content is likely to play a part over the coming 12 months, along with striking a balance between short features and long-form content. Maybe moving to an air-conditioned barn with a Hobnob dispensing machine should be on the cards.”

 

 

10. Classic Motor Hub (classicmotorhub.com)

Get all the latest news, read road tests and much more

Twitter | Facebook | Instagram


What sort of content can people find on your website?

“Our blog covers topics relevant to the classic, vintage and high-performance vehicles that we buy, sell, store, transport and entertain at our events.”

 

What is it that sets your website apart from other automotive blogs?

“As we are constantly changing stock in our showrooms which affords us the opportunity to feature many unique and interesting cars. Our blog covers a variety of topics that are of interest to anyone enthusiastic about classic cars.”

What does your website have planned in the next few years?

“Our website and blog will remain much the same in the coming years, and we hope to return to regular posting soon.”

 

    

11. Daily Car Blog (dailycarblog.co.uk)


Car Reviews, Car News, Your Car Reviews

Twitter | Facebook


What sort of content can people find on your website?

"We tend to cover new car releases, car reviews, YouTube car Vloggers and make irreverent commentary that some would not dare to make because it doesn't follow long-held etiquettes of politeness. Doing so makes us a target for the elites of the industry. But at least we have the independence of thought and hopefully, that comes across on the blog."


What is it that sets your website apart from other automotive sites?

"There is no magic formula to creating automotive content, we try not to follow the mainstream thought process because people (the readers) will call you out for it."


Any new features that your audience can look forward to?

"Hopefully, the next step is YouTube Vlogging, we've been wanting to do that for a while now but can't think of anything that is different to what is already out there.


Also, Vlogging or creating a YouTube channel is all about the personality. If you don't have the appealing personality it won't work and as a consensus, we here at DCB have concluded we do not have a personality among any us:). You can create brilliant content with beautiful cinematography, but if you don't have the personality then you end up being the new Top Gear. We're trying hard to find as many excuses as possible not to Vlog but maybe we'll try YouTube as the next step.


But I have to say we have always maintained that we prefer being low profile, its kind of like maintaining a mystery. We had a guy over at a press office declare "we don't know much about you, who you are?" which is exactly how we like it."

 

12. DriveWrite (drivewrite.co.uk)

An automotive website and car blog featuring car news, reviews and opinions
Twitter

 

What sort of content can people find on your website?

“It’s a broad church covering cars, driving standards, motoring in general and sometimes related lifestyle topics and humour.”

 

What is it that sets your website apart from other automotive blogs?

“My writing style. I don’t follow the ‘car blog’ conventions. Just because I road test a vehicle, for example, doesn’t mean I feel obliged to like it."

What does your website have planned in the next few years?

“Broadening the base to encompass new technologies and wider aspects of cars as lifestyle accessories. I will be appending another blog that looks at the lighter side of motoring.”

 

 

 

13. Car Money (carmoney.co.uk/blog)

 


Motor industry gossip and latest news

Twitter | Facebook | YouTube | Instagram


What sort of content can people find on your blog?

“Asides from Car Finance news and handy guides, the CarMoney blog features a wonderful range of helpful, educational, interesting and (sometimes) humorous blog posts.


From topics such as car finance, credit scores and ratings to more general articles on the automotive industry, news & views, the CarMoney blog features everything you need to know about cars!

 

What is it that sets your site apart from other automotive blogs?

“As you’d expect, our blog has a stronger focus on Car Finance than most other websites as that is what we do as a business.


It really is the place to go to understand the basics of financing a car as well as understanding some more of the complexities which can help you get a great deal on your next motor.”

 

Where do you see your website going in the next few years?

“We aim to make the blog the one-stop-shop for all things car finance and help solve any queries people may have.


As we mentioned, we’re now branching out into more general automotive content but always want to focus on helping out our audience.


Expect a lot more helpful guides, interesting opinion pieces and fun blog posts that will keep you coming back for more!”

 

 

14. Motorway (motorway.co.uk/blog)
 


Car buying, selling & industry trends

Twitter | Facebook | Instagram


What sort of content can people find on your blog?

"At Motorway.co.uk, we’re laser focused on helping customers sell their car. Our content is designed to help customers choose the best route to sell their vehicle. We genuinely want to help people find the best route to a quick, efficient car sale (which may not be with us).

Alongside our price comparison offering, we have created over 25+ car buying & selling guides covering car valuation, ways to sell, online car buyers, getting fast cash, scrapping your car and a raft of other related topics. We also provide advice on how to prepare your car for sale and how to part exchange successfully.

In short, we aim to provide a comprehensive list of guides that cover all bases for anyone that needs to sell their car.

We also cover industry news and provide market insight on our blog on topics such as diesel cars, the electric car revolution and fun topics such as the rise of the Lada.

We received a lot of press last year for our diesel car price research that revealed average diesel prices were falling quite significantly when compared with petrol over the same period."

 

What is it that sets your site apart from other automotive blogs?

“Most auto blogs focus on car reviews and ‘petrol head’ topics. Here at Motorway we focus more on important things going on in the car industry, such as the electric car revolution and helping motorists sell their car. ”

 

Where do you see your website going in the next few years?

"We recently completed a round of £2.75M in seed funding. This has allowed us to start work on some exciting products and features.

We have huge ambitions as a company and aim to become the ‘go to place’ for motorists looking to sell their car, offering the best prices along with a quick, efficient sales process."

Facebook


What content is there on your blog? 

"If you’re looking for analysis and insight about the fall of British Leyland, and its associated companies, this is the place to come. There is more than 20 years of original research behind this site, and what’s particularly fascinating is that this stuff continues to be surfaced, adding even more detail."

 

How is your site different from other car blogs out there? 

“Very often we include views and experiences who were there, working in the company. So, we’re not just recycling the same old urban myths. I’m proud that we’ve put so many of those to bed.”

 

Plans for the future?

"Nothing planned, I’m just enjoying continuing finding new and exciting information about the company even now. It’s an historian’s dream come true. "

Buying guides and road tests

Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | YouTube


What content is there on your blog? 

"We aim to help car buyers find their right car. Our impartial and in-depth car-reviews are completely free of jargon and focus instead on what buyers are really interested in – what each car is really like to live with"

 

How is your site different from other car blogs out there?

“We're not a typical car site for petrolheads – we're here to help people who are going to buy a car. Our content is completely impartial, so buyers can always rely on us for the truth. We aim to simplify the car buying journey, giving buyers confidence that they will make the right choice when choosing their next car. ”

 

Any plans for the future of the blog?

"We’re always looking at ways to improve the consumer journey by introducing new features. We aim to make carwow.co.uk the most popular automotive consumer website in the UK – a one-stop shop where you can research your new, nearly new or used car, then buy it. We have a number of new features in the pipeline which will make the process even easier."

What is it that sets your website apart from other automotive blogs?


"We have access to every model in the UK, from Dacia to Rolls-Royce, and attend the international launches of the majority of new models. That means readers can find expert opinion in the widest range of road tests in the UK, including future models and technologies. We're also active on social media, especially Twitter, and will always respond to contact from users."


Where do you see your website going in the next few years, any new features that your audience can look forward to?


"Front Seat Driver has now been joined by a sibling at CalibreMag.com, which will enable us to bring some of the most exciting cars and driving adventures to the site. There are claims that autonomous motoring is the future, but there's still a lot of fun to be had on four wheels."
