2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series single-cab ute review: Long-term report one – introduction

There’s a lot of talk about expensive utes nowadays, with dual-cab examples from Ford and VW pushing upwards of $70,000. But forget those dual-cab dreamers, ladies and gents, because this is the Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute – one of the most expensive workhorse trucks around...

2017 Ford Mustang GT Fastback review: Long-term report two – first impressions

If you're going to get a new Ford Mustang, a V8 manual is the one we'd recommend. Fortunately, that's exactly what we've scored with our new long-term Pony car.

2017 Volvo S90 D4 review: Long-term report two - highway and country driving

2017 Volvo S90 D4 review: Long-term report two - highway and country driving

We introduced you to our Volvo S90 D4 long-termer last month, and have promptly racked up about 1400km of driving in our 'entry level' variant. Given its diesel engine, long-distance cruising should quite obviously be this car's forte. Volvo's corporate tagline 'shake the world gently' is especially apt when considering the manner in which its flagship sedan (kicking off at $80k) drives...

2017 Holden Colorado Z71 review: Long-term report two

Whether it be through a multitude of contrasting paint options, bespoke build programs or just some clever technology, ways of making your car, even more, yours (Mike wouldn’t let me say ‘yourer’), is pretty hot property at the moment. Our 2017 Holden Colorado Z71 long-termer, Mr Plow, has taken a relatively traditional personalisation route though, through the addition of some genuine accessories...

2017 Volvo S90 D4 review: Long-term report one - introduction

There are a few really good reasons why the Volvo S90 D4 Momentum is a great addition to our growing Melbourne long-term fleet. The Swedish sedan is a bit of an unknown quantity, being so new to market against an established competitor set. Moreover, we’re yet to put this lower-level variant through the wringer...

2016 Volkswagen Caddy Maxi Crewvan TSI220 Review: Long-term report five, and farewell

Instalment five of our long-term test of the 2016 Volkswagen Caddy Maxi Crewvan TSI220 is the final one, and it sees our chief photographer, Sam Venn, telling us what he reckoned. Get this – he hadn’t spent much time in a manual before we got this vehicle, so it was a learning curve for him... You’ve spent time driving, loading, unloading and parking the car...

This the fourth instalment in the 2016 Volkswagen Caddy Maxi Crewvan TSI220 long-term review, and this time we asked Glen Sullivan, producer, videographer and editor, to tell us what he thought of the van.

We swap blue for white and upgrade to the 300kW Volvo XC90 T8 plug-in hybrid. But is the extra power worth the extra cost?

The 2017 Peugeot 308 Active has an interior that is much roomier than you might expect, especially considering it's one of the smallest hatches in the class.

The media system in the 2017 Peugeot 308 Active is a vital part of its interior – but it's also something that could prove to be a deal-breaker for potential buyers.
