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

Every single time we mention the word Stinger on the CarAdvice website, a small smoke haze rises out of the server as the comments section descends into a chest-beating war of words. 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...

2017 Mazda CX-5 v Peugeot 3008 comparison

The newcomer versus the champ: this isn’t some naff reference to a big money fight, but by the same token, it kind of is – because here we have the much-lauded European that’s all about swagger, going against the stalwart chart-topper with a tremendous record...

2017 Nissan 370Z Nismo v Holden Ute SS-V Redline comparison

The Commodore name may be living on but the Holden Ute passes away officially on 20 October when production of that most Australian of icons end. And uncertainty surrounding the future of Nissan’s legendary Z-series means the 370Z Nismo could be the last hurrah for a lineage that runs back nearly 50 years – to the original, 1969 Datsun 240Z...

2018 Nissan Navara SL v Volkswagen Amarok Core comparison

You've got a dilemma. You need a workhorse and bells and whistles but don't want to spend mega bucks. You could opt for a poverty pack ute and deal with the missing features, or, you could stump up the cash for the latest work-oriented dual-cab utes from Nissan and Volkswagen...

2017 Audi Q5 2.0 TDI Sport v Mercedes-Benz GLC 220d comparison

Luxury car makers absolutely love producing mid-sized SUVs based on passenger-car platforms, because aspirational upper-middle class family types are buying them in droves. The newest entrant to the class is Audi's second-generation Q5, which pairs clinical design with cutting-edge cabin tech and typically Teutonic execution...

2017 Skoda Octavia RS wagon v Renault Megane GT wagon comparison

Petrolhead parents on a budget are hardly spoilt for choice in today’s showrooms – especially if a hatchback is considered a bit too small and they prefer their driving experience, rather than outward view, to be elevated. In the circa-$40,000 price zone, there are just three members of the sporty compact wagon breed: the Renault Megane GT, Skoda Octavia RS, and Subaru Levorg...

2017 Ford Escape range review

One of the Australian car market's great mysteries is why Ford Australia has been so bad at convincing people to buy its Escape mid-sized SUV. Or, for that matter, its Kuga predecessor. Despite being a relatively well-rounded offering, Ford's market share at the time of writing was/is  just three per cent, miles behind the Mazda CX-5 (15...

Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce v BMW 330i M Sport v Jaguar XE 25t R-Sport comparison

Compact luxury sedans remain a vital part of the business case for any serious player in the premium car market. While luxury car-makers seek to diversify and future-proof by making small entry cars and more crossover SUVs, sedans still sit at the heart of what their makers represent. Brand loyalty aside, the BMW 3 Series is the definitive luxury compact sports sedan...

2017 Mazda CX-3 Maxx v Holden Trax LS comparison

The sales growth of pint-sized SUVs seems to have become stunted in 2017 despite an expanding category, yet they still account for about 10 per cent of Australia's new-car market. Two of the top-sellers can’t be accused of resting on their laurels, either. Both the Holden Trax and Mazda CX-3 have been given notable updates this year...

2017 Audi A5 TFSI quattro v Lexus RC200t comparison

The Audi A5 TFSI and Lexus RC200t are to cars what wrestling is to boxing. They look like the real thing from a distance, but in actual fact they're softer versions of their respective performance siblings, the RS5 and RC F. But, is that such a bad thing? Wrestling has millions of fans worldwide and to most people, it's pretty much the same thing as any other type of fighting...

Kia Sorento GT Line v Nissan Pathfinder Ti v Toyota Kluger Grande comparison

The second-generation Mazda CX-9 shook up the large family crossover segment when it arrived here about a year ago, but it's not the be-all and end-all. For instance, the colossal American-made Toyota Kluger and Nissan Pathfinder may not have the Mazda's badge or chic design, but they're both noteworthy prospects...

Alfa Romeo Old v New: 2017 Giulia v 1990 75 Twin Spark

Propeller shafts. They’re probably not a make or break item on your average car buyer’s checklist these days, but the long absence of driven rear wheels from the Alfa Romeo brand seemed to coincide with a general decline in regard for the company’s offerings...

2017 Honda CR-V v Volkswagen Golf Alltrack comparison

Car reviewers usually determine which cars to compared based on the vehicle ‘segment’ they occupy. Medium SUVs take on medium SUVs, small hatches take on small hatches, and so on… Yet we know based on buyer data, and personal experience alike, car buyers don’t always think in these terms...

2017 BMW 530i vs Mercedes-Benz E300 sedan comparison

While Bill Murray began every Groundhog Day at 6AM back in the early ’90s, the perpetual time warp I’m currently finding myself in starts with ‘5’ and ends with ‘Series sedan from BMW’. Since the all-new seventh-generation 2017 BMW 5 Series range lobbed locally in March, I've sampled both petrol 530i fours and 540i sixes, spent a week with diesel six-cylinder 530d in May, and attended the 530e iPerformance PHEV’s local launch in June...
