2017 Toyota Corolla SX review

The 2017 Toyota Corolla SX has sporty looks and decent road manners, and it now comes with new optional safety tech – but it's still a bit short of the best in class.

2017 Subaru Impreza review

Read the full article here. The Subaru Impreza 2.0i-L sedan might be the pick of the company's impressive new small-car range. It's well-equipped, solid value and far more engaging to drive than before, while offering cheaper ownership costs and signature all-wheel drive surety. We just wish it looked a little sharper!

Audi R8 V10 Plus v Audi A3 1.0 TFSI comparison

The latest R8 V10 Plus, with an incredible 449kW and 560Nm from its naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10, is the most-powerful road car Audi has ever devised. On paper, it's also the quickest. But power and pace comes at a price: almost $390k – $389,616 to be exact – before on-roads or before you even think about ticking any options boxes...

Screw your stupid hidden door handles!

What's with the disappearing rear door handles? Modern car designers seem to be getting more and more enamoured with the idea that making the rear doors of cars appear as though they're missing entrance levers is in some way sleek, modern or - God forbid - cool. It isn't. Door handles are important and they should be there for all to see and feel...

2017 Skoda Rapid facelift confirmed

We haven't yet seen images of the updated version of the Rapid hatch, which has been on sale in Australia since May 2014, but it would be reasonable to think that this mid-life refresh will bring with it some cosmetic changes inside and out...
