Sporty small hatch comparison : Mazda 3 v Ford Focus v Holden Cruze v Hyundai i30 v Nissan Pulsar

Almost anyone can throw on a pair of gym shorts and runners and look reasonably sporting in the checkout line at Coles, and the same is true with cars – the addition of alloy wheels, a spoiler and foglights can suddenly make your small hatchback look at least a bit athletic. As ever, though, it's the muscles beneath the clothes that counts...

Skoda Rapid v Kia Cerato : Comparison review

European cars are expensive, Korean cars are cheap. Well, that’s how the generalisation used to go at least. Yet here we have the new Skoda Rapid that, at $18,990, is the most affordable European small car on the market, and is actually $1000 cheaper than the South Korean-made Kia Cerato that falls just $10 beneath the crucial $20K barrier...

Honda Jazz v Volkswagen Polo : Comparison review

Not so long ago, buying a little car meant making big compromises.

But before you head out and buy a Corolla, know this: the city car class of 2014 is growing up fast...

Mazda 3 SP25 v Renault Megane GT-Line : Comparison review

Getting warmer… warmer… warmer. Perfect. Not everybody wants a hot hatch. But at the same time, a run-of-the-mill small car that ticks all the practical boxes but lacks a little zing doesn’t do it for some either.

BMW 2 Series Active Tourer front-drive MPV priced from $44,400

The BMW 2 Series Active Tourer MPV will kick off from $44,400 plus on-road costs when it arrives in Australian showrooms from November this year.  The local starting price, which reflects our report last week, means the first front-wheel-drive BMW sits $3500 over and above its Mercedes-Benz B-Class B180 arch rival, though the Bavarian brand makes up for it with specification and what it boldly claims to be a sportier drive...
