2017 KTM X-Bow review

Read the full article here. If you approach the 2017 KTM X-Bow R thinking it’s going to be a motorcycle-like riding experience, your experience will be a lot further from that assumption than you might think. It was my privilege to take a closer look at why this incredible engineering work of art is both so distinct from any other four-wheeled experience, but also so approachable, so much fun, and so addictive...

CarAdvice News Desk: The weekly wrap for March 17, 2017

Hi there and welcome to the CarAdvice.com News Desk, I’m Tegan Lawson with a look at what’s making headlines. New vehicle sales in Australia may be off to a slow start this year, but five brands in particular are enjoying strong growth. Kia, Subaru, Honda, Renault and Jaguar are leading the way.

Mitsubishi Pajero Sport Exceed v Holden Trailblazer LTZ comparison

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?    ...

2017 Subaru Impreza review

Read the full article here. The Subaru Impreza 2.0i-L sedan might be the pick of the company's impressive new small-car range. It's well-equipped, solid value and far more engaging to drive than before, while offering cheaper ownership costs and signature all-wheel drive surety. We just wish it looked a little sharper!

2017 Toyota C-HR Koba review

Read the full review here. I'll be the first to admit that I didn't want to like the 2017 Toyota C-HR. It looks like a small space ship, on paper it has an underwhelming engine and the pricing is ambitious. So, after spending hundreds of kilometres with the car in a variety of driving situations, has it won me over?

2017 Hyundai Ioniq review

Read the full article here. There's nothing that screams hybrid more than a Toyota Prius. In fact, it's so popular across that world that over 10 million Prius liftbacks have been sold since the car was first revealed in 1997. Hyundai wants a slice of that lucrative green vehicle pie, which is why the company has invested millions into this car, the 2017 Hyundai Ioniq...

2017 Ford Ranger XLT vs Volkswagen Amarok V6

Double-cab pickups have been getting ever closer to their SUV stablemates in terms of comfort, safety and technology... but it seems power hasn't been a huge focus. Until now. We put the new Volkswagen Amarok V6 up against the Ford Ranger XLT to see if the new car's added oomph is enough to make it king of the utes.

2017 Hyundai i30 review

Read the full review here. In the small car segment, it's a serious battle between three main players — the Mazda 3, Toyota Corolla and Hyundai i30 — with just one percentage point separating each of them on the sales charts. No surprise, then, the all-new 2017 Hyundai i30 would always be an incredibly important car for Hyundai in Australia...

2017 Land Rover Discovery review

Read the full review here. The all-new 2017 Land Rover Discovery takes the brand’s most recognised model to new heights of refinement, off-roading ability and interior practicality, but is that enough to entice buyers away from its European rivals when it lands in Australia come July?  ...

2017 Audi S5: Carving up the ice in Sweden

Read the full article here. Well, this is embarrassing. I'm behind the wheel of the new 2017 Audi S5 - it hasn't even landed in Australia yet - and I'm calling for a tractor tow-out. I'm in Sweden taking part in the Audi Ice Pro driving experience and have just wedged the S5 Sportback on a pile of snow...

Hyundai Tucson: We build one from scratch in the Czech Republic

Read the full article here. When you walk into a Hyundai dealership to check out a Hyundai Tucson, little do you realise how much work goes into building it in the Czech Republic before you write a cheque and drive out the door. Okay — enough of the check, cheque and Czech puns. Last year CarAdvice jetted off to the Czech Republic to look at Hyundai's giant $2...
