2018 Jeep Compass review

The Jeep Compass was once our lowest-scoring car. Can the new 2018 Compass prove it's now on the right path?

2018 Nissan X-Trail Ti long-term review, report one: introduction

In the second half of last year, we welcomed a facelifted Nissan X-Trail Ti to the CarAdvice Melbourne office's long-termer garage. As with all of our long-term reviews, our time with the mid-sized X-Trail would be spent in assessing its suitability for the modern family, in a market segment packed to the rafters with options...

2018 BMW X2 review

The first-ever BMW X2 piles on the good looks in its pitch as a premium small crossover player. But does it have substance to match its sporty looks?

2017 Mazda 2 Neo hatch long-term review, report six: the road trip

The Mazda 2 Neo has been a great urban runabout for the CarAdvice Melbourne team, but one of the things a car like this is likely to undertake at some stage in its life is tackle a more extended drive. When I think about when I was a teenager (some may argue that it wasn't that long ago), I remember doing a lot of long trips in my parents' old 2000 Honda CR-V, and most friends at the same age did the odd road trip or two as well...

2018 Lexus NX300h 2WD F Sport review

The 2018 Lexus NX brings a styling and equipment update for the new year, but is it enough to compete with impressive all-new competitors such as the Audi Q5, BMW X3 and Volvo XC60?

2018 Jeep Cherokee review

The polarising front end is gone, but the same two engines remain. The 2018 Jeep Cherokee is 'same same but different'. It still has the chops, though, to appeal to buyers in the medium SUV segment.

Cars We Own: Tall man, meet the Abarth 595

The Abarth 595 is a very small car. I am a very tall man. I’m also new here at CarAdvice. You can probably see where this is going. The team in Melbourne threw me the keys to our littlest, reddest hatchback and, through fits of laughter, told me to have fun. We've already taken a detailed look at how we specced the Abarth, but here’s a quick rundown of the highlights...

2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross review

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross sits between the ASX and Outlander, but it's a more resolved and engaging model than either. We've only had a few hours at the wheel, but it has all the appearance of a strong entrant into a cluttered segment.

2018 Citroen Grand C4 Picasso review

People movers have fallen out of fashion as a mode of hauling larger families. But the Citroen Grand C4 Picasso makes a compelling and attractive argument why people movers should be on buyers' consideration lists.

2017 Subaru Impreza 2.0i Premium long-term review, report four: urban driving

The 2017 Subaru Impreza is becoming part of the furniture here at the CarAdvice office. It’s proved to be quite a likable thing with plenty to offer in areas like safety, comfort and tech, but this time we’ll take a look at how it performs in the day-to-day urban grind. I must say, initial feelings towards the Impreza’s driving manners around town were not begging for praise...

2018 Haval H9 review

China's biggest SUV brand, Haval, shows how fast it can learn to impress mature markets. The commendable Haval H9 is a big, capable and well-specified 4x4 that stands every chance of changing a few minds, even if it remains a hard sell against more familiar offerings...

2018 Jaguar E-Pace review

The Jaguar E-Pace arrives as the marque's second only crack at the luxury SUV market. It should do well, given it's cleverly packaged with good dynamics and useful practicality.

2017 Subaru Impreza 2.0i Premium long-term review, report three: interior

We’re back in the 2017 Subaru Impreza 2.0i Premium, this time taking a look at the interior. Yet another area where I think the Subie excels. First impressions are great. A large 8.0-inch screen finished with piano black accents sits prominently in the middle of the dash, soft-touch plastics, chrome accents and faux carbon-fibre are scattered around the cockpit, and it becomes clear that Subaru has gone to great lengths to make the interior of the Impreza feel more upmarket than it really is...
