2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute review: Long-term report two – day-to-day driving

The 2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute isn’t made for urban driving. It isn’t supposed to spend time in traffic. No. Just, no. That was the conclusion I came to after spending some quality time in the driver’s seat of the big workhorse four-wheel-drive ute travelling from my place in the lower Blue Mountains to the CarAdvice Sydney office in McMahons Point...

At last, Peugeot and Citroen have a shot at success in Australia

À propos du temps! That’s French for ‘about time!’, in reference to the fact that Sime Darby is no longer the Australian distributor for Peugeot, Citroen and DS. The news that Groupe PSA, the company that runs the three French brands, has moved on to a new local distributor – Inchcape, the same guys who have transformed Subaru from an odd-ball outsider to a properly appealing 'household name' car brand – is excellent for all parties...

PSA Peugeot Citroen shifts Australian distribution to Subaru operator Inchcape - UPDATE

French automotive giant Groupe PSA - the company that oversees the Peugeot, Citroen and DS brands - has signed a new distribution agreement with Inchcape in Australia. Inchcape is the company that takes care of brands such as Subaru locally, so the move - Groupe PSA would undoubtedly hope - will see the French car brands see increased sales in a market where it currently struggles for relevance...

Toyota SUV comparison: Fortuner v Kluger v Prado

We’re always amazed at just how many SUVs Toyota seems to sell, and there’s good reason for that – people know the brand, know the reputation, and know they’ve got options to choose from. With that in mind, we decided to gather three of the Japanese brand’s seven-seat SUVs to put them to the test: the Toyota Fortuner, Toyota Kluger, and Toyota LandCruiser Prado...

Honda Civic hatch, why no Magic Seats?

The all-new Honda Civic hatch may be one of the most practical cars in its segment, but it lacks a crucial item that used to be standard: Magic Seats. The Honda Magic Seats system in the previous-generation Civic hatch would allow the seat bases to be folded up to allow a large storage area, and the seat backs could also be folded down flat for extra convenience...

Honda Australia hoping for a large SUV and ute, but chances are slim

Why do left-hand drive markets get all the good models? That must be what Honda Australia’s senior management is thinking, because it’s missing out on two models that could be vital to it growing its sales Down Under. The two models we’re talking about are the Pilot large SUV and the Ridgeline pick-up/ute, both of which aren’t built in right-hand drive...

2017 Mini Countryman SD All4 review

The all-new 2017 Mini Countryman is a convincing compact SUV, one with class and charisma. And in top-spec diesel all-wheel-drive form, it's quick and charming, too.

Honda defends safety stance on Civic

The all-new Honda Civic hatch brings with it an impressive array of safety technology – but only if you buy the most expensive model. That could be perceived as a problem for Honda, because the the Civic - whether you choose the new hatch or the existing sedan - doesn’t have autonomous emergency braking (AEB) in the four more affordable models in the range, but rivals such as the Mazda 3 have the tech fitted throughout...
