2017 Suzuki Ignis GLX auto review: Long-term report one – introduction

Despite members of the small car segment being decidedly bland, the micro car segment (which sits beneath it) always seems to offer up some quirky, different and appealing alternatives to the mainstream boredom. And perhaps the best of them at the moment is the 2017 Suzuki Ignis, and in top-spec GLX guise, it’s an absolute steal at $19,990 drive away...

2017 Mitsubishi Triton GLS SE review

Even before the 2017 Mitsubishi Triton debuted, the three-star brand's ute has always represented strong value for money. Now with some exterior detailing, it looks the 'tough truck' part, too.

Audi Q2 1.4 TFSI v Mini Cooper Countryman comparison

Small SUVs, especially 2WD variants, are something of an anomaly in the makeup of the modern motoring landscape. They rarely offer the same space or practicality as a comparable hatchback, and they almost never deliver driving ability or comfort anything like that of an SUV. Therefore, in objective terms, they don’t seem to do anything especially adeptly – on paper at least...

Mercedes-Benz: 'Many more' models in the pipeline, but premium image the top priority

The head of marketing and sales for Mercedes-Benz, Britta Seeger, says new product is more important than ever before, but needed to be backed by strong marketing, dealer performance, and aftersales success. Above all, though, is the brand's premium status. “Since 2011 when we started the 2020 Programme, one strong aspect was the product platform,” Seeger said, speaking with Australian media at the New York motor show...

Mercedes-AMG: Say goodbye to atmo engines, and you can forget about diesel

At this year's New York motor show, Australian media spent time with Tobias Moers, the head of Mercedes-AMG - and chief among the topics discussed was performance, specifically how best to achieve it. In recent times, petrol engines have become so efficient, so technologically adept and so clean-running, that there is hope we may one day return to the glory days of naturally-aspirated petrol engines, even if they do run an electric motor of some sort to help things along...
