2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk Review

Read the full article here. You could be forgiven for asking why Jeep engineers would take an already impressive off-roader and make it well, more off-roady. Is that even a word? Anyway, you know what I mean. The Jeep Grand Cherokee - with tricky diffs and off-road modes - was already a more than competent dirt track warrior, but now the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk is even more capable and it’s all thanks to the addition of ‘Trailhawk’ to the title...

2017 BMW M4 GTS review

This is one of just 700 2017 BMW M4 GTS in the world – the first of just 25 coming to Australia.

2017 Holden Astra review

Read the full article here. Apparently this is a big deal – it’s the 2017 Holden Astra, the seventh generation model to bear that nameplate to be sold in Australia. From its early roots as a badge-engineered offshoot of the Nissan Pulsar to the glory days of the late 1990s and early 2000s where the Holden Astra ran second only to the Toyota Corolla in the small car segment with 28,500 sales (in 2001), the new model is, the brand claims, vital...
