Subaru Forester v BMW X1 Comparison

Read the full review here. Bringing the 2016 Subaru Forester XT Premium and 2016 BMW X1 sDrive 20i together for a head-to-head gunfight isn’t quite as left field as it might seem. Pricing is close – only $3610 between the starting prices – and both are positioned as affordable family SUVs at the smaller end of the scale.

What is Australia's favourite hot hatch?

Australians love hotted-up versions of everyday small hatches and sedans, but which are the sales leaders? Beyond a shadow of a doubt, it’s Volkswagen that sits at the top of the sales tree, given the fact it leads across three key price/power market breakdowns.

2009 BMW 7 40li Review

  A while ago I wanted to change cars and short listed a few, including my now owned 7 series. Why such a big car you ask? Well, it wasn't about the size as much as about comfort and technology. Thing is, I made a check list of features I wanted my car to have, ranging from integrated satellite navigation to heated seats for the cold winter...

2011 BMW X5 xDrive 30d Review

Just to let you, the reader, know: I've never actually driven this car. I am just 13, so I can’t legally drive and am writing this from the perspective of someone whose family has been fortunate to have had two X5s, and who loves reading car magazines and watching YouTube clips about cars. We have had our E70 X5 for about 4...

2014 BMW 1 M135i Review

The ultimate drivers hatchback search has been on for some years. A couple cars ago I had a 2008 STi, but had a job that needed 25,000kms of Sydney driving, and whilst a nice gearbox and not too bad ride, eventually went for a diesel auto Wrangler for a few years, then onto a BMW 130i that was also P plate compliant, so ticked the box of a capable track car and is still in the family with my son driving it...

2013 BMW X3 xDrive 20d Review

We bought the X3 as our first luxury car on my recommendation and believe me we have been enjoying it ever since. The 2 litre diesel barely leaves a person wanting for more especially when it's their first luxury car. The comfort is extremely good. My dad also test drove the X5 but apart from the 3 litre engine, he didn't find anything special like he did with X3...
