2018 Holden Acadia, Equinox quick drive review

As Holden moves towards its new life as a full-line vehicle importer, a new generation of models are beginning to touch down in Australia. Here, Paul drives the CX-5 rivalling Equinox, and the big Captiva-replacing Acadia. NOTE: We apologise for the shaky vision in some shots. Technical issues on the day!  ...

2017 Honda Civic VTi-LX v 2017 Hyundai i30 SR Premium comparison

When it comes to excitement, Honda's Civic has, the brand admits, been in need of a kick in the pants. This latest generation certainly shows the brand is serious. Thing is... Hyundai's not messing about, either. A challenger brand it may still be, but as our tests show, the i30 is as deserving of your dollar as any Japanese car...

2017 Subaru XV 2.0i-S review

See the full article here. The 2017 Subaru XV range has arrived on sale in a segment that looks a helluva lot different to how it did when the first version launched. Let's wind back the clock. The year was 2012, and Subaru rolled the dice on a pumped up version of the Impreza hatch with some body cladding, funky colours and chunky wheels...

Mazda Old v New: 2017 Mazda 3 SP25 Astina v 1980 323 De-Luxe

See the full article here. The opportunity to dig deep into motoring history and to experience it first hand can be as frightening as it’s possibly enlightening. In the case of Mazda Australia’s recent 40th Anniversary of the company's Small Car shindig, it was both. And thanks to an unforeseen person twist, for me at least, it was memorable in more ways than I’d anticipated...

2017 Hyundai i30 SR review

There's little doubt the small car segment is one of the most hotly contested. But what if you need something sporty, yet not outrageously expensive? The 2017 Hyundai i30 SR might be your solution. See the full article here.

2017 Audi Q5 review

See the full article here. The all-new second-generation Audi Q5 has very big shoes to fill, if it is to achieve anywhere near the success of its world-beating predecessor. From 2009 to 2015 the Audi Q5 was the world’s most successful SUV in its class. It was also Audi’s single biggest seller, at least as a body style, trumped only by the far broader A3 range...

2017 Ford Everest Trend RWD tow test

Here we take a rear-wheel drive Ford Everest Trend and add a boat weighing in close to 1950kg. This vehicle seems to bridge the divide between SUV and station wagon, making it a suitable tow option instead of a standard passenger car. How does it go? Watch!

2017 Mercedes-AMG C63s v 1996 Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG

There's never a bad time to taste some old-school performance, but is anything from the 1990s old enough to be retro cool, yet? That's the question we explore here, looking back at a 1996 Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG - right alongside today's hero, the 2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 S.

2018 Honda Civic Type R review

See the full article here. The rev needle is pushing 7000rpm as I grip the titanium gear-knob and slam it down into fourth. The speedo needle creeps over 150km/h, while the engine again raises a raucous racket as the end of the straight approaches. I’m in the 2018 Honda Civic Type R at Lausitzring in Germany, and I’m learning pretty rapidly that this car is a handful...

2017 Volkswagen Golf 7.5 review

See the full article here. There wasn't much wrong with the seventh-generation Volkswagen Golf, but the new 7.5 version borders on perfection. It's quite possibly the best all-round hatchback ever built.

2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee review

See the full article here. There’s absolutely no doubt the revised 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a watershed moment for the brand in Australia. Resounding success as recently as 2014 on the back of sharp pricing and quality inclusions, followed by the subsequent fall from grace in the form of recalls, service issues and parts availability – it's been an eventful few years for Jeep in Australia, that's for sure...

2018 Kia Stinger preview

See the full story here. Not since the Toyota 86 has there been a more anticipated car for the Australian market, than the all-new Kia Stinger. The Korean brand is set to deliver a rear-wheel drive, turbocharged, practical family sedan at a time when all others in the segment have waved the white flag - but is it a case of too little too late, or is Kia about to reinvigorate the segment? To find out, we flew all the way to the Green Hell, perhaps the most infamous race track in the world, better known as the Nurburgring...

2017 Audi RS5 review

See the full article here. The second-generation Audi RS5 is a quick car, of that there is absolutely no doubt. Built on a completely new platform shared with other new-gen Audis including the A4, A5, Q5 and Q7, it ups the ante by swapping out a 4.2-litre V8 for a newly-developed 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 motor lifted from the Porsche Panamera 4S – but with a few tweaks from Audi Sport...

2017 Hyundai i30 range review

See the full article here The Hyundai i30 small hatchback is one of Australia's highest-selling vehicles, making the brand new third-generation version launched in April a highly significant car. Put mildly, this Korean rival to the Toyota Corolla and Mazda 3 - chief among a plethora of small car offerings in the market - is a prime candidate for a full range review...

2018 Porsche 911 GTS review

See the full article here. With more than 30 different variants of the 911 on sale today, the addition of the recently launched Porsche 911 GTS may seem as a non-event, considering the amount of choice already available. But actually, the ($282,700-320,400) GTS lineup is perhaps the sweetest spot in the entire 911 range and the only models that properly blend the elements of the brand’s track-focused cars with daily usability...

2018 Hyundai Kona: First look

See the full story here. The 2018 Hyundai Kona is the Korean brand's first global compact SUV, developed to challenge models like the Mazda CX-3 and Toyota C-HR when it arrives in Australia around October this year. CarAdvice attended the international reveal of the Kona in Seoul, South Korea, where we were given the opportunity to get a quick go behind the wheel of a pre-production car at Hyundai's research and development centre in Namyang...

2017 Nissan Pathfinder ST review

Read the full article here. There are plenty of choices out there for buyers after a seven-seat SUV, and the Nissan Pathfinder is one of the most popular ones. Now, with the introduction of the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder line-up – which has seen a big mid-life update with a new look, revised drivetrain and strong pricing – the new range will undoubtedly remain a popular choice for customers in a segment that includes some thoroughly impressive options, like the Mazda CX-9, Toyota Kluger, Kia Sorento and Hyundai Santa Fe...
