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...

2017 Peugeot 2008 pricing and specs

The new-look 2017 Peugeot 2008 has arrived in Australia, with the more muscled looking mini SUV axing its diesel engine offering and adding new safety and technology equipment. The new model range is a petrol only affair, with the brand’s 1.2-litre three-cylinder turbo engine and six-speed automatic transmission aimed at appealing squarely at the majority of front-wheel-drive SUV buyers...

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...

Kia's overdue small SUV spied

Kia’s desperately needed small crossover SUV to rival cars such as Mazda CX-3 appears to be coming together, as these reputed development-car spy images show. Our photographer friends have caught this camouflaged prototype model doing cold weather testing on a frozen lake in Sweden.

Softened new Suzuki Grand Vitara coming

A new Suzuki Grand Vitara is definitely on the way inside the next few years, but don’t expect the next-generation model to retain the current car’s comparatively hardcore off-road abilities. Instead, you can expect the next iteration to follow the smaller ‘regular' Suzuki Vitara’s lead and adopt a more road-focussed demeanour and construction, to better compete with rivals such as the Mazda CX-5 and Hyundai Tucson in the hugely popular medium SUV market...

New Suzuki Jimny Sierra to remain a hardcore ladder-frame 4x4

The confirmed successor to the much-loved Suzuki Jimny Sierra (current model pictured above) will retain the famed off-road ability and toughness, the company says. Expect familiar ladder frame construction, off-road suspension and reduction gearing (low range) to remain part of the next iteration, which will also sport more safety equipment, cool retro styling language and potentially a downsized BoosterJet turbo engine — though the latter is not confirmed...

Suzuki Ignis Sport turbo on wish-list

Suzuki Australia is keen to get its hands on a hotted-up version of the high-riding new Ignis city car as soon as possible, potentially using a version of the Baleno’s turbo engine. However, the small issue of whether such a car is even in development lingers, though given the old Ignis' use in rallying (as pictured below at The Acropolis), we’d imagine it’s been at least considered...
