Land Rover Freelander 2 Review

Land Rover Freelander 2 Review

Despite missing my flight and arriving late, the rest of the Land Rover Freelander 2 launch went off without a hitch. It’s been around 10 years since the last Freelander was launched and suffice to say, the previous model was getting a bit long in the tooth. Freelander 2’s big brothers – the Discovery and Range Rover – currently sell in large numbers throughout Australia, so the Freelander 2 has some big shoes to fill...

2007 Honda Civic Type R First Steer

After seeing this thing on display at the Melbourne Motor Show this year, I knew Honda were making an attempt at impressing their Aussie supporters, along with reviving a brand name that is synonymous with style, performance and affordability From behind, one of the first things you notice is the set of dual exhaust pipes shaped like triangles...

2007 Volvo S40 D5 Diesel Road Test

2007 Volvo S40 D5 Diesel Road Test

Volvo launched the new S40 range some time ago. Recently though, Volvo has snuck another model into the line-up, the new model being the S40 D5 – or in layman’s terms, the S40 Diesel. Keen to counter its main Swedish competitor – Saab – the S40 D5 uses the same Diesel motor that is featured in the Volvo XC90 D5. The S40 D5 goes one step better than the Saab 9-3 Diesel...

2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 Road Test

2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 Road Test

“Pfft…” said my passenger as I collected him in the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8. “I thought you said you were driving something quick…not a tarted up 4WD” he continued. Not long after nailing the throttle, my passenger was eating a large serving of humble pie, and this was the case with most people who had no clue about the SRT heritage or its meaning...

2007 Holden Epica CDX 2.5 Road Test

2007 Holden Epica CDX 2.5 Road Test

Honestly, I wasn’t looking forward to driving Holden’s new Epica. For those not in the know, the Holden Epica is basically a re-badged Daewoo Tosca. So the stigma associated with the Daewoo brand, along with the recently released crash test results of the Holden Barina (2-stars) had me in two minds...

2007 Ford Fiesta XR4 Review

2007 Ford Fiesta XR4 Review

Ford might have lost 40 million dollars this year (due to development costs of the new Falcon), but in the last 12 months they have added two new XR cars to the showrooms. First came the mighty XR5, aimed at those who wanted a little more sophistication than a WRX (but not the torque steer in Mazda's 3 MPS) and as of last week, Ford dealers got their hands on a new hero car, the Ford Fiesta XR4...


2007 Mercedes Benz GL500 Road Test

2007 Mercedes Benz GL500 Road Test

Most SUVs that terrorise the streets are bought with the sole intent of intimidating other drivers. If that was your one and only ambition, the new Mercedes Benz GL-class of vehicles can’t be matched for sheer size and road parting ability. Surely there are other uses for such a behemoth of a thing? That’s what I was interested in investigating...

2007 Volvo XC90 V8 Road Test

A big SUV powered by a V8 engine. It must chew through fuel and kill the globe…right? Wrong. Volvo’s latest XC90 – the 4.4-litre V8 – is a mix of power and efficiency, striking the perfect balance. Trekking off the beaten track isn’t a lost task either. Although most owners will never leave a paved surface, I ventured off-road to see if Volvo’s bad-boy SUV has what it takes to entertain the family while out bush...

Volkswagen Golf GT Review

Volkswagen Golf GT - Local launch - Gold Coast “It’s a 1.4 litre, but goes harder than most 2.5 litre cars and sips fuel at the rate of 7.7 litres/100kms – meet the Golf GT” A big car accident, some rain, and a Schumaker aspiring truck driver were barely going to interrupt Volkswagen’s media launch of the all new Golf GT...

Before I start, we took lots of photos and you can find them in the Lamborghini Murcielago Gallery. Also there is a Video of the car on the 2nd page.

2007 Holden Commodore VE Calais V6 Road Test

2007 Holden Commodore VE Calais V6 Road Test

Holden’s Calais has always been the ‘bee’s knees’ of the Holden sedan line-up (aside from long wheel base models). The Calais was always jam packed with the latest goodies, along with a silky smooth ride to complement the drive. The new Calais still lives at the top of the range, but the Calais moniker has been segmented into two guises – the regular Calais and the Calais V...
