This week, Paul Maric and Mandy Turner are joined again by senior editor Mike Costello to discuss the latest CarAdvice news and reviews from across the automotive landscape and Australia’s new-car market.

As always, expect shenanigans. 

What happened in this week’s episode? 

In the news this week, the Northern Territory has announced an extension to its open speed-limit program and explore opportunities to grow it further.

At the other corner of the country, the first of Honda’s new NSX supercars touched down in Melbourne – and it won’t be cheap.

On the reviews front, Mike talks about the new Volvo S90 sedan and V90 wagon that he drove recently in Europe. He also fills us in on a chat with Volvo executive Anne-Cathrine Thore Olsson on the company’s commitment to responsibility for the behaviour of its future autonomous vehicles.

And, as is now tradition, we highlight a few ‘what the’ reader comments. Because if you can’t single out the odd units on-air, what’s the point of wielding all this power?
