2017 Jaguar F-Pace Review

Read the article here. The 2017 Jaguar F-Pace SUV is nothing short of a proper Jaguar, a largely uncompromising model in what is now the strongest line-up in the British brand’s history. At first, the F-Pace may confuse. After all, Jaguar is a sports car company at heart and SUVs have always been left to sister brand Land Rover – but it’s when one takes a deep look at what makes an F-Pace a Jaguar, both in and out, that it starts to make more sense...

2016 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport: Two- and four-wheel drive modes explained

Read the article here. During regular driving, the vehicle is normally driven in 2H, which is its two-wheel, rear-wheel drive mode.

2016 Toyota Tacoma Review (MY 2017)

Read the article here. While Australia makes do with the hugely popular Toyota HiLux as its dual-cab ute of choice, the US market gets the Toyota Tacoma, which is a very different beast indeed.

Family 4x4 SUV Comparison: Ford Everest v Isuzu MU-X v Mitsubishi Pajero Sport v Toyota Fortuner v Nissan Patrol

The current-day SUV boom isn’t all about softer, more car-like high-riding options designed with little more than a school run in mind. For many buyers out there, a family 4x4 still needs to be a proper off-roader, a tough-as-nails workhorse that blends a modicum of urban comfort with proper skills off the beaten path and has the ability to confidently and consistently tow loads...

Read the article here. Mahindra’s relationship with the Willys Jeep dates back to the 1940s when the company began building the vehicle under license in India.
