2007 Hyundai Santa Fe 3.3 V6 Review

2007 Hyundai Santa Fe 3.3 V6 – First steer “With a more powerful 3.3L V6 joining the line up, Hyundai’s mid-sized Santa Fe SUV range is a hard act to beat” There isn't much wrong with the 2.7L V6 Santa Fe. It's quiet, smooth, well mannered, roomy, economic and most of all, outstanding value for money...

2007 E-series HSV GTS Road Test

2007 E-series HSV GTS Road Test

The HSV Senator I drove a little while back didn’t do it for me, the six-speed gearbox felt a bit woollen and agricultural and just didn’t feel up to the task. With that, I gave HSV a call in a last ditch attempt to regain my faith in the marque. I went in of a Monday afternoon and there it was, a blue GTS waiting for me...

2007 Proton Savvy Review

2007 Proton Savvy Review

When Proton announced a significant price cut for the struggling Proton Savvy, I simply had to go drive this car. In case you're not aware, I am not a fan of cheap and nasty cars. I have taken most of my anger out on the Holden Barina so far this year but something tells me I have a new target, the Proton Savvy. Test Model: 2007 Proton Savvy 1...

2007 Toyota Tarago V6 Ultima Road Test

It wasn’t that long ago that I reported on the face lifted Toyota Tarago. I drove around in the 4-cylinder GLI model and was constantly let down by the lack of buzz and power from the small motor when the car was loaded with people...

FPV F6 Typhoon Road Test

FPV F6 Typhoon Road Test

After driving the HSV Clubsport R8, what better than to punt it against one of the best from the FPV stables - the F6 Typhoon. When you look at the power and torque figures these two boast, the match up seems slightly unfair. On one hand there is the bellowing LS2 juggernaut from the lion’s den, whilst on the other hand there is a seemingly quaint inline six-cylinder – from the blue oval – with a blow dryer attached...
