2018 Hyundai Sonata Review

See the full article here. More often than not, when a car company does a facelift of an existing model, it does its very best to get away with calling the revision an ‘all-new’ car, but that’s not the case with the updated Hyundai Sonata, even if the 2018 model sees major design and mechanical changes...

2018 BMW X3 review

See the full article here. The third-generation BMW X3 has a deep-seated connection with Australia that most people won’t realise. It’s bold new look is the handy work of Aussie designer and all-round nice guy Calvin Luk, who also penned the current X1 and 1 Series facelift. Luk is a BMW fanboy from way back – from the very moment his parents bought an E36, and it’s been that way ever since...

Kia Stinger V6 on the dyno! Surprised with the numbers?

We took our company-owned Kia Stinger to Chasers and strapped it onto the dyno to find out just how much power it makes at the wheels. In stock form, it produces 272kW of power at the flywheel, or 365hp. Were you surprised with the numbers it spat out on the dyno?

2018 Nissan Leaf review

The second-generation Nissan Leaf electric car has a longer range and more tech. But questions remain over how much it will cost in Australia, and whether buyers in our market are finally ready to get behind the EV revolution.

2018 Jaguar XJR575 review

If you always thought the Jaguar XJ was a bit of a pussycat, Jaguar has well and truly fixed that issue. Jaguar's engineering team has taken the XJR's wick, wound it up, and shot the car out of a cannon into a tin of blue paint. And, the end result is this tyre destroying limousine, aptly called the 2018 Jaguar XJR575, which replaces the outgoing XJR...

2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake review

It's a car the Brits have been hiding from us for some time – the Jaguar XF Sportbrake delivers SUV practicality, but holds back on the domineering stance an SUV commands on the road. Instead, the Jaguar XF Sportbrake offers a stunning physique that can't be mistaken for anything other than a Jaguar. Just look at it...

2018 Ferrari GTC4 Lusso review

See the full article here. For exactly six years, the biggest issue I have had with exotic cars has been my son losing his mind when I can’t take him for a drive. As a father of car-obsessed boys, the Ferrari GTC4 Lusso is the best thing that has ever come out of Maranello...

2018 Kia Stinger 330Si v Holden Commodore SS-V Redline comparison

See the full article here. Every single time we mention the word Stinger on the CarAdvice website, a small smoke haze rises out of the server as the comments section descends into a chest-beating war of words. A car has never been so divisive and it's not hard to see why. The all-new Kia Stinger is encroaching on territory long held by an Australian mob in the form of the Blue Oval and red lion...

See the full article here I want one. That’s the overwhelming thought that has stuck in my mind after driving the 2018 Volvo XC60 D5 R-Design. It’s a big call for the new-generation Volvo XC60, considering what else is available in this market space. There are plenty of accomplished names, like the Mercedes GLC, BMW X3 and Audi Q5...

2017 Mercedes-AMG GT R track review

See the full article here. Thundering into turn one at the deceptively named Bilster Berg Driving Resort, the 2017 AMG GT R is popping, crackling and snarling as I downshift under heavy braking before turning into the tight uphill hairpin. Following Mercedes-Benz racing legend Bernt Schneider at close quarters is illustrating two glaring points...

2018 Subaru WRX review

See the full article here. It's 25 years since Japan gave birth to a turbocharged, all-wheel-drive sedan that would become a cult performance car. A classic, even. That would make perfect timing for the introduction of a next-generation Subaru WRX, though with the next all-new model not due until 2019 we’ll have to make do with an MY18 update...

2018 Aston Martin DB11 V8

See the full article here. They say, less is more. Well, that’s what we were hoping when we got the launch invite for a new Aston Martin DB11 variant, because for the first time in nearly 50 years, there’s a V8 under the bonnet. But not just any V8, because in another milestone moment, Aston’s relationship with Mercedes-AMG has delivered AMG’s potent 4...

2018 Genesis G70 review

In some ways it’s hard to give you an accurate idea of what the 2018 Genesis G70 mid-size luxury sedan will be like when it arrives in Australia – and that’s after spending a good few hours in the car at its international launch in Korea.

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.
