2016 Mazda 3 Touring sedan Review

Read the article here. The small car market is one of the biggest segments for new car sales in Australia, but when you think of small cars, you probably think of hatchbacks. Those Models do make up the majority of sales, but small sedans - like the Mazda 3 - also play their part in appealing to buyers. Lets find out why...

2017 Jaguar F-Pace Review

Read the article here. The 2017 Jaguar F-Pace SUV is nothing short of a proper Jaguar, a largely uncompromising model in what is now the strongest line-up in the British brand’s history. At first, the F-Pace may confuse. After all, Jaguar is a sports car company at heart and SUVs have always been left to sister brand Land Rover – but it’s when one takes a deep look at what makes an F-Pace a Jaguar, both in and out, that it starts to make more sense...

2016 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport: Two- and four-wheel drive modes explained

Read the article here. During regular driving, the vehicle is normally driven in 2H, which is its two-wheel, rear-wheel drive mode. This mode reduces fuel consumption by just sending torque to the rear wheels and also gives you the flexibility of driving on all surfaces. Unlike some of its competitors, the Pajero Sport can also be driven in 4H mode on all surfaces...

2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider walkaround

Read the article here. Few other cars on sale, at any price, are quite as bittersweet an experience as the 2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider. In its happy yellow paintwork and quite bland-looking, smaller (17in front, 18in rear) rolling stock, I’m expecting a markedly diluted experience from the rag-top. And I’d presumed wrongly...

2016 Australia Day Special - Ford Everest v Holden Sportwagon

Last year CarAdvice held its first ever Australia Day challenge. We pitted a Holden Ute against a Holden wagon and James won. This year Dave reckons his learned his lesson and for 2016, he’s opted for the latest version of last year’s winner, the VF Series II Holden Commodore Sportwagon SS V Redline. Mixing things up a little, James has decided to go with the new Ford Everest...

2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS Review : The ultimate 991

We thought we’d nailed our bucket list after burning up Johannesburg’s Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit in the new 911 Turbo S – but all that was blown out of the water after riding shotgun in the latest Porsche 911 GT3 RS with works driver Jorg Bergmeister...

2016 Suzuki Vitara S Turbo Review

Read article here. It’s been more than six months since the famous Suzuki Vitara badge returned to Australia. Over that time, this boxy little crossover has cemented itself as Suzuki’s top-selling model here after the Swift. But while the Vitara hasn’t been on sale all that long, a major improvement has already been introduced...

How does a car go from prototype to production? Holden engineering interview

Read the article here. While most of the questions we receive are related to recommending new cars, there's an element of new car buying that many people don't know about. CarAdvice reader Stefan wanted to know how manufacturers take cars from the prototype stage through to production...

Jaguar F-Type Project 7 arrives in Australia

Read the article here. We first saw the Jaguar Project 7 concept in 2014 and its chances of entering prosecution seemed limited. Celebrating the British brand's seven Le Mans victories, the stunning concept had more power and performance potential than the F-Type and also looked the part. Jaguar confirmed that 250 examples would be built and ten would make their way to Australia...

2016 Skoda Superb Wagon Review

Read the article here. Czech carmaker Skoda is generally regarded at one of Volkswagen’s cut-price brands, but just one glance at the latest Skoda Superb wagon turns that notion on its head. The Superb is a ludicrously large family wagon that also offers an exhaustive list of features and creature comforts, a four-cylinder turbo engine from one of the world’s most celebrated hot hatches, while looking genuinely sporty from any angle...

2016 Honda Civic VTi-S Review

The new Honda Civic sedan isn’t far off – but we’ll be waiting a little longer for the new hatch. Sales have slowed with just over 4300 Civic hatch and sedans sold last year compared to segment leader the Toyota Corolla with more than 42,000. There’s no denying the Civic hatch is starting to show its age and needs a makeover...

2016 Toyota Tacoma Review (MY 2017)

Read the article here. While Australia makes do with the hugely popular Toyota HiLux as its dual-cab ute of choice, the US market gets the Toyota Tacoma, which is a very different beast indeed. It is a huge seller in its home market, with about 175,000 Tacoma models sold in the US in 2015. That's about four-and-a-half times as many as Toyota sold of its HiLux in Australia last year...

Tasmania Weekend Road Trip: Cockle Creek in the Mazda BT-50 — Australia's southernmost street

Read the article here. We're all busy people — so it's important to take time out every now and then. Well, that's the excuse we came up with. Last year I had the chance to drive to the northernmost point of Australia with Volkswagen in the Amarok. With that trip a fond, but albeit distant memory, we conjured up a plan to drive another ute — a Mazda BT-50 to the southernmost point in Australia...

2016 Volkswagen Passat Alltrack 2.0TDI v 2016 Subaru Outback 3.6R Comparison

Read the article here. Australian buyers have been bashing down the doors at dealers, rushing madly to secure the keys (or keyless fobs) to large SUVs over the past decade without so much as a backward glance. The harsh reality, though, is most of those buyers don’t really need a large SUV...

Mazda MX-5 Old v New Comparison - First-generation NA v fourth-generation ND

Read the article here. Like it or not, the '80s were cool. Madonna and Prince were at the height of their success and big hair wasn't just acceptable, it was encouraged. But a very special thing happened in February of 1989: the Mazda MX-5 was born. It all started with the first-generation Mazda MX-5, the NA. It had an 85kW/130Nm 1...

2016 Holden Commodore SS-V Redline night review

Read the article here. You want to see something a bit different? Well this is the 2016 Holden Commodore SS-V Redline... oh you've seen it before? Well not like this you haven't. Now to many of us, the Commodore is just everyday transport but switch out the lights and the SS particularly in its nitrate silver paint begins to look a little bit more impressive...

2016 Toyota RAV4 Cruiser Diesel Review

Read the article here. The Toyota RAV4 has long been part of the staple diet of SUV loving Australians. It was one of the first compact SUVs launched here, and remains one of the most popular. Much like rice or potatoes, it’s long been no frills yet reliable choice, a popular option alongside Mazda’s CX-5 and Nissan’s X-Trail...

2016 Mini Cooper S Clubman Review

Read the article here. The previous Mini Clubman was perhaps a bit too quirky for its own good, particularly with those suicide doors on one side only, which were rather inconveniently placed on the wrong side of the car – at least for this country. But this new version, based on the Mini five-door, is far more grown up – and way more practical – especially if you intend to use those extra doors – six in total...
