2017 Geneva motor show: Epic from-the-show-floor experience

If you don't already know, Geneva is in Switzerland. And while some Aussies might miss having motor shows here in Oz, few will see that as enough of an excuse to splash out to attend a major international one. Luckily, this year's 2017 Geneva motor show (on until March 19) was my first, and it was so good, I didn't want anyone to miss out...

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!

Volkswagen Tiguan 162TSI Highline R-Line v Subaru Forester XT Premium comparison

You've decided you need a mid-sized crossover. But at the same time, you don't want some boring econobox with snooze-worthy performance. You want something with at least the pretence of being a little dynamic, because you're still a car-lover. In another era you may have owned a hot hatch or nimble coupe...

2017 Subaru Impreza recalled for rear-view camera fix

Mazda MX-5 RF v Subaru BRZ comparison

Power up front, drive to the back, a stick-shift in the middle – it’s how nature intended sports cars to be. And these two purist offerings – the 2017 Mazda MX-5 RF and the updated 2017 Subaru BRZ – are true to that formula.
