2018 Holden Acadia, Equinox quick drive review

As Holden moves towards its new life as a full-line vehicle importer, a new generation of models are beginning to touch down in Australia. Here, Paul drives the CX-5 rivalling Equinox, and the big Captiva-replacing Acadia. NOTE: We apologise for the shaky vision in some shots. Technical issues on the day!  ...

$30k Family Car mega test

See the full article here. While the car industry seems intent on reinventing and cross-pollinating shapes, sizes and themes to create a different family vehicle, equally families who buy and use such vehicles can be incredibly diverse in terms of needs and wants...

2017 Subaru XV 2.0i-S review

See the full article here. The 2017 Subaru XV range has arrived on sale in a segment that looks a helluva lot different to how it did when the first version launched. Let's wind back the clock. The year was 2012, and Subaru rolled the dice on a pumped up version of the Impreza hatch with some body cladding, funky colours and chunky wheels...

2017 Audi Q5 review

See the full article here. The all-new second-generation Audi Q5 has very big shoes to fill, if it is to achieve anywhere near the success of its world-beating predecessor. From 2009 to 2015 the Audi Q5 was the world’s most successful SUV in its class. It was also Audi’s single biggest seller, at least as a body style, trumped only by the far broader A3 range...

2018 Honda Civic Type R review

See the full article here. The rev needle is pushing 7000rpm as I grip the titanium gear-knob and slam it down into fourth. The speedo needle creeps over 150km/h, while the engine again raises a raucous racket as the end of the straight approaches. I’m in the 2018 Honda Civic Type R at Lausitzring in Germany, and I’m learning pretty rapidly that this car is a handful...

2017 Volkswagen Golf 7.5 review

See the full article here. There wasn't much wrong with the seventh-generation Volkswagen Golf, but the new 7.5 version borders on perfection. It's quite possibly the best all-round hatchback ever built.

2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee review

See the full article here. There’s absolutely no doubt the revised 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a watershed moment for the brand in Australia. Resounding success as recently as 2014 on the back of sharp pricing and quality inclusions, followed by the subsequent fall from grace in the form of recalls, service issues and parts availability – it's been an eventful few years for Jeep in Australia, that's for sure...

2018 Kia Stinger preview

See the full story here. Not since the Toyota 86 has there been a more anticipated car for the Australian market, than the all-new Kia Stinger. The Korean brand is set to deliver a rear-wheel drive, turbocharged, practical family sedan at a time when all others in the segment have waved the white flag - but is it a case of too little too late, or is Kia about to reinvigorate the segment? To find out, we flew all the way to the Green Hell, perhaps the most infamous race track in the world, better known as the Nurburgring...

2018 Porsche 911 GTS review

See the full article here. With more than 30 different variants of the 911 on sale today, the addition of the recently launched Porsche 911 GTS may seem as a non-event, considering the amount of choice already available. But actually, the ($282,700-320,400) GTS lineup is perhaps the sweetest spot in the entire 911 range and the only models that properly blend the elements of the brand’s track-focused cars with daily usability...

Toyota Yaris v Mazda2 comparison

2017 Lamborghini Huracan Performante review

See the full article here. If you’ve ever been to Italy you will know travelling between its cities is akin to going from one village to another. There are farms next to car dealerships, then it turns industrial for a little bit and back to farmland. It’s an odd thing to see, but there’s a general sense of history and authenticity to the place that is impossible to replicate...
