2017 Skoda Kodiaq 132TSI review

What Skoda lacks in public brand awareness it makes up for with quality vehicles. The new Skoda Kodiaq is a well-judged European family SUV that can be driven away for $46k. That alone should get you thinking...

2017 Mercedes Marco Polo review

See the full article here. Vans are very popular, not only as a way to move things from place to place while keeping them dry, but intrepid travellers have found all manner of ways to convert them into manageable mobile homes. If you're looking for that versatility off the showroom floor and can do without the extra row of seats in the van, then the Mercedes Marco Polo Activity could well be worth a look...

2017 Holden Astra Sedan LTZ review

The flagship Holden Astra sedan could be the pick of the range, though it misses out on safety tech offered in the hatch.

2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce review

The tyre-frying, twin-turbocharged V6-powered Giulia QV might be the car tasked with lifting the iconic Italian marque out of the shadows of apathy, but could the smart money actually lie with the lower-spec 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce?

2017 Mini JCW Countryman review

The 2017 Mini JCW Countryman is pretty much what we've come to expect from the go-fast arm of the BMW-owned British brand – and it's more practical than ever before.

2017 Volkswagen Golf R review

With a slight power climb, added tech and that same AWD composure, the Volkswagen Golf R has few rivals in the performance hatch stakes.

2018 Peugeot 3008 review

See the full article here. For this reviewer, at least, the 3008 sets the benchmark in this segment. Sure, if you’re thinking about it as a cold logical decision, it’s probably not the best value for money, nor is it likely to have the best resale, or stack up in terms of longevity against the traditional Japanese players...

2017 Toyota LandCruiser 200 GXL review

See the full article here. As far as updates go, the few that have been added to the 2017 Toyota LandCruiser 200 Series GXL are very much low key. The GXL now comes with DAB+, an updated audio interface and steering wheel audio controls? You want more? Well, there isn’t any…...

2018 Peugeot 3008 review

In many ways the 2018 Peugeot 3008 is the new benchmark in the medium SUV segment. But does it do enough to convince newcomers to go French?

2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI Performance Edition 1 review

After hiatus for a generation, Volkswagen's Golf is back as a three-door in flagship front-driven hot hatch form. But do the bundled in goodies of the new limited-run '7.5' Golf GTI Performance Edition 1 stack up in practice as much as they do on paper?

It's been a couple of months since we took delivery of our 2017 Mazda 2 Neo long-termer, and in that time it's been driven by numerous CarAdvice employees. So far we've covered urban commuting, infotainment, along with interior comfort and practicality. However we haven't really heard from the wider team...

2017 Nissan Navara ST 4WD review

We reckon the 2017 Nissan Navara ST could be a very convincing lifestyle ute – shame it falls short as an actual workhorse. But that might be just fine, if you're a certain type of buyer...

2017 Holden Colorado Z71 review: Long-term report four – interior

Facelifts are a wonderful thing. Not only in the cosmetic sense – but more so when it refers to a car being updated, bringing it to the forefront of current technology and style. The Holden Colorado’s facelift back in Q3 2016 was a huge leap forward for the model, but one major area where it’s feeling a lot fresher is inside the cabin...

2017 HSV GTSR review

The ‘Big Dog’ LS9-powered HSV GTSR W1 may well have grabbed the headlines when HSV announced its final Zeta platform-based line-up back in February. But six months on, it’s the ‘humble’ LSA-powered 2017 HSV GTSR that Dave reckons is the real pick of the bunch…...

2017 Volkswagen Tiguan 132TSI Comfortline review: Long-term report four – off-road weekend

I slide into the dark coloured Volkswagen Tiguan under a cobalt blue sky and head as quickly as possible out of Sydney, doing my best to avoid the never-ending snake-like peak hour traffic rolling ever forward at the mind boggling speed of 12km/hour. It pays to have a comfortable car in Sydney and I'm thankful the Tiguan is just that, with a sturdy sports-esque manually adjusted cloth seat that has just the right amount of support...
