Small SUV Comparison : Holden Trax v Ford EcoSport v Suzuki S-Cross v Peugeot 2008 v Nissan Juke v Mitsubishi ASX

Buyers and manufacturers are obsessed with all things SUV at the moment, with soaring sales leading to massive expansions plans of high-riding hatchbacks and wagons with tough styling.

Small Car Comparison : Toyota Corolla v Mazda 3 v Holden Cruze v Hyundai Elantra

Small sedans are generally not quite as popular as small hatchbacks in Australia. The newly released Toyota Corolla sedan is expected to snare only a 20 per cent share of the nameplate’s sales this year, while the Hyundai Elantra is outsold by its i30 sibling five-to-one...

Luxury SUV Comparison : BMW X5 v Mercedes-Benz ML-Class v Range Rover Sport v Porsche Cayenne

The arrival of a bigger, third-generation BMW X5 styled to please America prompted that we revisit that age old question – are large SUVs lumbering, unwieldy tanks better suited to the bush? (or Bush?) Or are they viable high-rise family wagons? We picked the $100K price point, where the stars align in terms of 3...

Medium car comparison : Toyota Camry v Mazda 6 v Nissan Altima v Skoda Octavia v Holden Malibu v Hyundai i40

Medium is the new large. By 2017 when the large car segment will have been thrown into further disarray with the loss of the Ford Falcon and question marks surrounding imported replacements for the Holden Commodore and Toyota Aurion, it really has to be. The mass exodus from large six-cylinder family sedans that has happened in recent years, however, hasn’t been the expected boon for medium cars...

400kW Club Comparison : Audi RS6 v BMW M5 v Jaguar XFR-S v Mercedes-Benz E63 S AMG

Chief executives sitting in lofty boardrooms make changes less frequently than the manufacturers of the cars they drive, or so it seems. One year ago we tested the BMW M5 and it was the only luxury muscle car with 400-plus kilowatts of power; the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG made 386kW, the Jaguar XFR 375kW...

Ford Fiesta ST v Renault Clio RS200: Comparison Review

It seems like only yesterday we awarded the Ford Fiesta ST a win against its Peugeot 208 GTi and Volkswagen Polo GTI rivals (read more here), then went a step further by crowning it one of the best-ever hot-hatches created and one of the best available at any price...

Premium hatch comparison: Audi A3 v BMW 1 Series v Mercedes-Benz A-Class v Alfa Romeo Giulietta v Volkswagen Golf v Volvo V40

‘Premium’ is perhaps the word most difficult to define in the automotive lexicon. To some, it may be about delivering an image above the mainstream and the connotations of a badge; to others it may be about the tangibles of a product and the engineering behind the façade...

BMW M135i v Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG: Comparison Review

Hatches don’t come any hotter than the BMW M135i and the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG. Nor do rivalries come any fiercer. BMW has been building fast hatchbacks since the 130i of a decade ago, and its M division is esteemed in building compact six-cylinder performance models seemingly since the dawn of time...

Hot hatch comparison: Volkswagen Golf GTI v Ford Focus ST v Renault Sport Megane 265

It’s rare that a higher-specification variant of a popular mainstream car would be the best-seller in the range, but that tells you much about the enduring status and appeal of the Volkswagen Golf GTI. With one in four Golfs driving out of VW showrooms wearing the revered three-letter badge, the GTI is almost ubiquitous on Australian streets...

Hot hatch comparison: Ford Fiesta ST v Peugeot 208 GTi v Volkswagen Polo GTI

This time last year driving enthusiasts with less than $30,000 to spend on a new hot-hatch had a single option: the Volkswagen Polo GTI. Okay, technically they could also pick its near-twin, the Skoda Fabia RS, but the sales charts show they didn’t. Meanwhile the Suzuki Swift Sport simply isn’t high enough on the Peri-Peri heat scale to compete...

City car comparison: Fiat 500 v Mitsubishi Mirage v Nissan Micra v Volkswagen Up!

They may not be the cars teenagers have pinned to their bedroom walls, but the Fiat 500, Mitsubishi Mirage, Nissan Micra and Volkswagen Up! are among the cheapest ways first-time drivers can get into a new car. Particularly when parents are often paying the bills, all four sub-light hatchbacks featured here cost $14,000 or less on the road, all are economical and all feature stability control and front and front-side airbags as standard...
