CarAdvice News Desk: The weekly wrap for March 17, 2017

Hi there and welcome to the CarAdvice.com News Desk, I’m Tegan Lawson with a look at what’s making headlines. New vehicle sales in Australia may be off to a slow start this year, but five brands in particular are enjoying strong growth. Kia, Subaru, Honda, Renault and Jaguar are leading the way. Hyundai’s answer to the Volkswagen Golf GTI, the i30N has been teased in a new video...

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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe review

Read the full review here. Mercedes-Benz has been building jaw-dropping coupes for decades, or at least, for as long as I can remember. From 1961-71 was a particularly creative period for the German luxury car manufacturer, which saw the likes of the 220SE, 250SE and 280SE coupes released...

Mitsubishi Pajero Sport Exceed v Holden Trailblazer LTZ comparison

Read the full article here If you’ve outgrown your large SUV, there’s only one way to move and that’s up. And, two manufacturers battling for your hard-earned rugged SUV dollars are Mitsubishi and Holden. The 2017 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport has reigned supreme in this segment in terms of value for money and drivability, but does the revised 2017 Holden Trailblazer have the goods to knock it off its perch?    ...

Ute comparison: Ford Ranger v Holden Colorado v Isuzu D-Max v Mitsubishi Triton v Toyota HiLux v Volkswagen Amarok

Read the full review here  There are work utes – you know, the single-cab budget-focused models aimed at tradies specifically – and there are lifestyle utes, those that cost $60,000 to $70,000 that are more often seen with a dude in a suit driving them rather than a bloke in overalls...

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 A3 1.0 TFSI comparison

Read the full article here. Audi's heap-topping R8 V10 Plus is eleven times more expensive than the carmaker's most affordable A3 small car, the 1.0 TFSI Sportback. But is the big-dollar supercar actually eleven times better? We pit them head to head in a wide variety of tests to find out.  ...

CarAdvice News Desk: The weekly wrap for March 10, 2017

Hi there and welcome to the CarAdvice.com News Desk. The Australian Consumer and Competition Commission has launched legal proceedings against Audi Australia over diesel emissions claims. The sale of Opel to PSA Group won’t harm the Holden Commodore and Astra, for now. Volkswagen Australia is in close communication with the factory regarding the addition of safety assistance technology to the Amarok...

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?

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...

2016 BMW M4 Competition v Mercedes-AMG C63 S Track Test

Read the full article here. The battle of BMW’s M division against Mercedes-AMG has been raging on for decades. The Bavarians have never gone for a power war with the folks from Affalterbach, preferring instead to focus on a power to weight ratio formula that sees them maintain the purists status amongst the hooligan nature of old AMGs...

2017 Ford Ranger XLT vs Volkswagen Amarok V6

Double-cab pickups have been getting ever closer to their SUV stablemates in terms of comfort, safety and technology... but it seems power hasn't been a huge focus. Until now. We put the new Volkswagen Amarok V6 up against the Ford Ranger XLT to see if the new car's added oomph is enough to make it king of the utes.

2017 Hyundai i30 review

Read the full review here. In the small car segment, it's a serious battle between three main players — the Mazda 3, Toyota Corolla and Hyundai i30 — with just one percentage point separating each of them on the sales charts. No surprise, then, the all-new 2017 Hyundai i30 would always be an incredibly important car for Hyundai in Australia...

Dave makes his Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit debut in the single, most powerful, locally-built production car ever created, the new 474kW/815Nm LS9-powered 2017 HSV GTSR W1.

Hi there and welcome to the CarAdvice News Desk, I’m Tegan Lawson with a look at what’s been making headlines this week. An inadvertent leak during a presentation has revealed juicy details of the upcoming performance hatch, the Hyundai i30 N. It appears details of the next-generation 2017 Subaru XV have been published in the Japanese press...
