Ford Mustang GT Fastback v Holden Commodore SS V Redline comparison: Track Test

At the end of Part One of our Ford Mustang GT Fastback v Holden Commodore SS V Redline comparison – the Road Test – the 5.0-litre ‘Yank Tank’ was lagging a little behind the 6.2-litre Aussie brute. But things were most definitely still close...

Ford Mustang GT Fastback v Holden Commodore SS V Redline comparison: Road Test

What the hell? Why would you put a two-door Ford Mustang up against a soon-to-be-departed four-door Holden Commodore? Well, when there's only 2kW and $2500 between them, why wouldn’t we...? Late last month we got the chance to twin-test our resident long-term 2017 Ford Mustang GT Fastback against the ageing – yet decidedly still entertaining – 2017 Nissan 370Z Coupe...

Toyota SUV comparison: Fortuner v Kluger v Prado

We’re always amazed at just how many SUVs Toyota seems to sell, and there’s good reason for that – people know the brand, know the reputation, and know they’ve got options to choose from. With that in mind, we decided to gather three of the Japanese brand’s seven-seat SUVs to put them to the test: the Toyota Fortuner, Toyota Kluger, and Toyota LandCruiser Prado...

Citroen Berlingo v Fiat Doblo v Volkswagen Caddy comparison

Small vans at small prices – that’s the mantra for this test, with three value-focused compact cargo carriers going against each other to find out which is the best small van you can get. The three vans we have here may not be household names to the majority of passenger car buyers, but if you own a small business – say you’re a florist, plumber, painter, baker or any number of other professions – there’s a chance you know the Citroen Berlingo, Fiat Doblo and Volkswagen Caddy...

Volkswagen Beetle Old v New: 1965 v 2017

Cars of the 1940s and 1950s around the world were big and trimmed to the gills in chrome. While most looked like airplanes and were stunning to look at, they also cost a small fortune to run. Enter the Volkswagen Beetle. First introduced in 1938, the tiny ‘people's car’ shot to prominence after World War II...

2017 Mazda CX-5 range review

The first-generation Mazda CX-5 was Australia’s most popular SUV four years running, so the premiere of a more grown-up second iteration has genuine significance. Australians purchased about 115,000 Mazda CX-5s from launch in 2012, making it the company’s number-two offering behind the Mazda 3. Globally, it accounts for about 25 per cent of its total sales...

Mercedes-AMG GLC43 v Porsche Macan GTS comparison

Buying a luxury SUV is confusing. There are so many sizes, so many options and so many brands all offering what would, on paper at least, seem like a great purchase. On the smaller end of the scale, the likes of the Porsche Macan GTS and Mercedes-AMG GLC43 go head-to-head for dominance in the all-important performance SUV war of the Germans...

Ford Escape Titanium v Hyundai Tucson Highlander petrol SUV comparison

The Hyundai Tucson is Australia's second most popular SUV behind the Mazda CX-5, ergo one of the market's top-selling vehicles full stop. By contrast, the newly renamed Ford Escape (nee Kuga) is a perennial underachiever, highly regarded critically but comparatively ignored by buyers. We want to investigate whether this discrepancy is justified...

Audi Q2 1.4 TFSI v Mini Cooper Countryman comparison

Small SUVs, especially 2WD variants, are something of an anomaly in the makeup of the modern motoring landscape. They rarely offer the same space or practicality as a comparable hatchback, and they almost never deliver driving ability or comfort anything like that of an SUV. Therefore, in objective terms, they don’t seem to do anything especially adeptly – on paper at least...

Drag race: Australia vs The World

Australia. It's the country where there's always an insect, animal or sea creature trying to kill you. It's also the country that once housed a thriving car industry. But, instead of crying over spilt milk, we're showing the world one last time why the constant fear of death has inspired our local engineers to build a car that's itching at the chance to chew you up and spit you out...

Ford Ranger Wildtrak v Toyota HiLux TRD comparison

This really is the battle of the big guns – the most expensive versions of the Ford Ranger and Toyota HiLux, fighting for the title of the sportiest lifestyle ute. They’re both more popular than any SUV on the market, with buyers choosing these high-riding, five-seat vehicles to get around even if they don’t use the tray for its intended purpose...

Alfa Romeo Giulia QV v BMW M3 Competition v Mercedes-AMG C63 S comparison

For a nation renowned for its love of all things sport, it should come as no surprise this admiration and aspiration extends to what we drive. We are inside the top-10 world sales market list for Lamborghini, Porsche is seeing continuing sales growth and both Mercedes-AMG and BMW M Division speak highly of the Australian market, where we have the highest performance-version to regular-model ratio in the world...

Audi S4 v Mercedes-AMG C43 sedan comparison

The S4 and C43 represent the entry point into Audi's and Mercedes-AMG's performance mid-sedan ranges. Are they merely facsimiles of their go-faster stablemates, or properly desirable luxo-sports Euros in their own right? And which one is the CarAdvice pick?

Ford Mustang GT Fastback v Nissan 370Z Coupe comparison

It's a good problem to have. You want to buy a new sports car, but you want more poke than either a Mazda MX-5 or Subaru BRZ/Toyota 86 can offer. It can't be front-wheel drive, and your budget rules out more expensive Euros from the likes of Audi, BMW, or Mercedes-Benz...

Small sedan comparison: Toyota Corolla Ascent v Honda Civic VTi-S v Subaru Impreza 2.0i-L

The last time we took a close look at the small sedan segment in the form of a comprehensive three-way comparison, the new-generation Honda Civic stole the cookies from the previous segment leader, the Hyundai Elantra and a slightly more left field combatant, the Skoda Octavia...

Small SUV comparison: Honda HR-V VTi-L v Mazda CX-3 Akari v Mitsubishi ASX XLS v Toyota C-HR Koba

Small crossovers are a vogue segment, drawing buyers up from lower hatchbacks and down from bigger SUVs alike. The newest entrant, creating significant buzz, is the Toyota C-HR. Australia’s biggest-selling brand has taken its time joining the fray, but based on our favourable first impression, it has been well worth the wait...

Read the full article here If you’ve outgrown your large SUV, there’s only one way to move and that’s up. And, two manufacturers battling for your hard-earned rugged SUV dollars are Mitsubishi and Holden. The 2017 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport has reigned supreme in this segment in terms of value for money and drivability, but does the revised 2017 Holden Trailblazer have the goods to knock it off its perch?    ...

Ute comparison: Ford Ranger v Holden Colorado v Isuzu D-Max v Mitsubishi Triton v Toyota HiLux v Volkswagen Amarok

There are work utes – you know, the single-cab, budget-focused models aimed at tradies specifically – and there are lifestyle utes, those that cost $60,000 to $70,000 that are more often seen with a dude in a suit driving them rather than a bloke in overalls. In fact, we drove those types of utes in our eight ute mega test a while ago, and we've even done an extra-cab lifestyle ute comparison, too...

Audi R8 V10 Plus v A3 1.0 TFSI comparison

Read the full article here. Audi's heap-topping R8 V10 Plus is eleven times more expensive than the carmaker's most affordable A3 small car, the 1.0 TFSI Sportback. But is the big-dollar supercar actually eleven times better? We pit them head to head in a wide variety of tests to find out.  ...
