2018 Toyota Landcruiser Prado Kakadu review
  • The Kakadu is one of the best off-roaders in this price bracket; Fuel efficient engine; Stacks of room inside with tech to keep the kids happy; Now with a 3000kg braked towing capacity
  • Engine lacks punch, especially when loaded with passengers; Some off-road tech only works in low-range; Infotainment system fiddly and missing Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

OUR RATING
8.1 / 10

2018 Kia Stinger Si V6 on the dyno: Surprised with the numbers?

When we took delivery of our Hichroma Red 2018 Kia Stinger Si V6, the first thing we wanted to do was strap it onto a dyno to see just how much power it makes at the rear wheels. In stock form, the Kia Stinger delivers 272kW of power and 510Nm of torque, but that's at the flywheel...

2018 Kia Stinger 330Si v Holden Commodore SS-V Redline comparison

A car has never been so divisive and it's not hard to see why. The all-new Kia Stinger is encroaching on territory long held by an Australian mob in the form of the Blue Oval and red lion...

2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake review
