Honda HR-V VTi-L v Mazda CX-3 Akari v Mitsubishi ASX XLS v Toyota C-HR Koba comparison

Small crossovers are a vogue segment, drawing buyers up from lower hatchbacks and down from bigger SUVs alike. The newest entrant, creating significant buzz, is the Toyota C-HR. Australia’s biggest-selling brand has taken its time joining the fray, but based on our favourable first impression, it has been well worth the wait...

The small SUV craze won't be slowing anytime soon, and luxury brand Volvo is counting down the hours in anticipation of its new addition, the Volvo XC40.

Audi 'to fill the gaps' in its SUV range with Q4 and Q6

Audi has a few SUVs in its line-up: there's the Q2, Q3, Q5, Q7 and upcoming Q8. But what about the gaps? Where are the Q1, Q4 and Q6? Well, they could be on their way sooner than you'd think. Audi chairman of the board of management Rupert Stadler told CarAdvice at the 2017 Geneva motor show that the brand is looking to add new models to appeal to different buyers in different regions, with the spots either side of the new Q5 the ones that are garnering the most attention internally...

2017 Toyota C-HR Koba review

Read the full review here. I'll be the first to admit that I didn't want to like the 2017 Toyota C-HR. It looks like a small space ship, on paper it has an underwhelming engine and the pricing is ambitious. So, after spending hundreds of kilometres with the car in a variety of driving situations, has it won me over?

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...

Peugeot 3008 and 5008 to push French brand's mainstream appeal

When you think SUVs, you don't necessarily think of Peugeot. But in the space of the next 12 months, the French company is set to see an SUV range expansion that it hopes will give the brand some mainstream appeal. The updated Peugeot 2008 small SUV kicks things off this week, followed by the 3008 mid-sized model around April (pictured top), and the larger 5008 seven-seater that will arrive before the year's out (pictured below)...

2017 Toyota C-HR pricing and specs

The brand new Toyota C-HR small crossover launched in Australia today, with the express mission of “disrupting” a segment led by the Mazda CX-3 and Honda HR-V despite severely restricted supply out of Japan. Aggressively styled, turbocharged and spun-off Toyota’s more dynamically engaging new architecture, the C-HR is a case of ‘better late than never’ for Australia’s biggest brand...
