2017 Volkswagen Tiguan 132TSI Comfortline review: Long-term report two – interior space and comfort

Our long-term Volkswagen Tiguan has already proved its mettle as a city-focused medium SUV in many ways, which we’ll detail in later instalments. Here, though, the focus is on the Tiguan’s utilitarian interior...

2017 Holden Colorado Z71 review: Long-term report three – off-roading

The last time we checked in with our 2017 Holden Colorado Z71, it was getting kitted-out for off-road adventures. Now, we didn’t go all-out throwing the full ARB catalogue at it just yet – but as I’m sure you’ll agree, it does look the part. So, it can talk the talk, but now it’s time to put its extra kit into practice off the beaten track...

2017 Suzuki Ignis GLX auto review: Long-term report three – country driving

I’ve warmed like a late Spring afternoon to the 2017 Suzuki Ignis GLX, our long-termer tester that seems to have spent most of CarAdvice’s custodianship in co-conspirator Trent Nikolic’s pocket – perhaps literally – outside of the rare opportunity to occasionally “take her around the block”. Brief impressions, then, but good ones...

2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute review long-term report three – load lugging

2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute review long-term report three – load lugging

Sometimes you have to load in a lot of stuff. It could be a large volume of stuff, or a big mass of stuff. Either way, the 2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute is made for it. We wanted to find out just how well our 79 Series cab-chassis dealt with stuff, so we, er, stuffed it with a few different things. First up was a pallet of ballast from our mates over at Crown Forklifts...

2017 Suzuki Ignis GLX auto review: Long-term report two – infotainment

Now, you’d think that providing infotainment that works, is just as crucial as providing that infotainment system in the first place? Sadly, after a few weeks behind the wheel of our long-term 2017 Suzuki Ignis GLX, it seems Suzuki hasn’t quite gotten this crucial element right. The specifications would indicate reason to rejoice – especially given the sub 20k starting price...

2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute review: Long-term report two – day-to-day driving

The 2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute isn’t made for urban driving. It isn’t supposed to spend time in traffic. No. Just, no. That was the conclusion I came to after spending some quality time in the driver’s seat of the big workhorse four-wheel-drive ute travelling from my place in the lower Blue Mountains to the CarAdvice Sydney office in McMahons Point...

2017 Mazda 2 Neo hatch review: Long-term report one – Introduction

My #firstcar! Well, sort of. Here's the latest addition to CarAdvice's long term fleet: the 2017 Mazda 2 Neo, finished in the Japanese company's signature Soul Red paint. Starting at $14,990 before on-road costs, our tester is equipped with the optional six-speed automatic transmission ($2000), and the aforementioned special paint ($300), bringing the as-tested price to $17,290 plus ORCs...

2017 Volvo S90 D4 review: Long-term report three – infotainment

Rolling into the third instalment of our 2017 Volvo S90 D4 Momentum long-term review, 'owner' Mike Costello has tapped me to assess Volvo's new-generation Sensus infotainment system. For some, availability of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto with the system might be all that needs saying...

2017 Volkswagen Tiguan 132TSI Comfortline review: Long-term report one – introduction

The all-new 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan, launched in the second half of last year, has established a new benchmark in the hotly-contested medium SUV segment. The Tiguan is by no means the bestseller in the segment – that honour belongs to Mazda’s CX-5 – but at CarAdvice, we reckon the Tiguan is the pick of the medium SUV bunch...

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 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...
