"Middleweight" mightn't be the description a buyer might use for a prospective six-figure motoring purchase, but when shopping premium German brands that's the hard reality, be it size or stature...
After hiatus for a generation, Volkswagen's Golf is back as a three-door in flagship front-driven hot hatch form. But do the bundled in goodies of the new limited-run '7.5' Golf GTI Performance Edition 1 stack up in practice as much as they do on paper?
From styling to equipment and value, Holden has take the offensive to the small-car market with its Euro-influenced Astra sedan range. An offer too good to be true? We pitch it against the evergreen, big-selling Corolla to test the measure of the Astra's goodness.
The Blue Oval's flagship Ford Escape 2.0 Titanium is a medium SUV that thinks it's a plus-sized hot hatch. But does its potent turbo-petrol heartbeat improve or diminish its family-hauling capabilities?
The new Sport variant brings together a suite of appealing features and sharp pricing worthy of the new sweet spot in the 2017 Kia Cerato range.
While the car industry seems intent on reinventing and cross-pollinating shapes, sizes and themes to create a different family vehicle, equally families who buy and use such vehicles can be incredibly diverse in terms of needs and wants...
This year marks the 40th anniversary of Mazda's small car in Australia, so we've pitched the current flagship Mazda 3 SP25 Astina against the 1980 323 hatch to see just how times have changed
A bigger and bolder Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet has arrived to bolster the brand's ranks. But does it deliver on its maker's promise of lifting the convertible game in beauty, comfort, dynamic and assistance?

The sharper-dressed second-generation 2017 Audi A5 Coupe certainly has 'the look', but can a 2.0-litre diesel heartbeat deliver the feel-good vibe and energy to match?
I've just discovered that I love desert. No, not double-cream-topped, Belgian-choc-filled, Heston Blumenthal-frozen Masterchef-style dessert, but the sun-scorched, dusty, cactus-smattered, don't-go-wandering-off-or-you'll-die environment of America's Wild West.
