2018 Peugeot 3008 review

See the full article here. For this reviewer, at least, the 3008 sets the benchmark in this segment. Sure, if you’re thinking about it as a cold logical decision, it’s probably not the best value for money, nor is it likely to have the best resale, or stack up in terms of longevity against the traditional Japanese players...

2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI Performance Edition 1 review

See the full article here While there are truckloads of topics where you mightn’t utter Volkswagen Golf and Porsche 911 in the same breath, they’re kindred compatriots in an important area: both struck successful formulas long ago and have benefited from evolution at the hands of many since...

2017 Mercedes Marco Polo review

See the full article here. Vans are very popular, not only as a way to move things from place to place while keeping them dry, but intrepid travellers have found all manner of ways to convert them into manageable mobile homes. If you're looking for that versatility off the showroom floor and can do without the extra row of seats in the van, then the Mercedes Marco Polo Activity could well be worth a look...

2017 Toyota LandCruiser 200 GXL review

See the full article here. As far as updates go, the few that have been added to the 2017 Toyota LandCruiser 200 Series GXL are very much low key. The GXL now comes with DAB+, an updated audio interface and steering wheel audio controls? You want more? Well, there isn’t any…...

So as you can imagine, there are plenty of die-hard fans all over the planet.

2018 Jaguar F-Type four-cylinder review

Jaguar's new F-Type four-cylinder follows in the footsteps of Porsche's Boxster and Cayman, downsizing from six cylinders to four. But, while that German duo can no longer be had with a six, the F-Type can. And an eight! So... should you consider this new four-pot entry option? Here, Tony puts that question to the test.

Mastering Laguna Seca in a Mazda MX-5 Cup car

See the full article here. Opportunities to properly compete in an SCCA sanctioned race meet at the challenging Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Northern California don’t come around all that often, especially if you’re an Australian motoring journalist. It’s pure bucket list stuff and thanks to Mazda Australia, CarAdvice was lucky enough to do that...

2018 Range Rover Velar review

The Range Rover Velar is the fourth model in the 'Rangey' family, and it's likely to become the most popular. Like the Evoque, it's a game-changer - and a hint of what's to come.

2017 Holden Commodore SS-V Redline review

It’s hard to imagine the noise of a rumbling exhaust and angry V8 could ever get old. But, with the passing of time, the lure of a meaty V8 in a large sedan has passed Australians. Sure, it’s sad that we’re going to lose local manufacturing, but it doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate one last blast in what will arguably be known as Australia’s best bang-for-buck car – the 2017 Holden Commodore SS-V Redline...

2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class First Look

See the full review here. The facelifted 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class has a fairly difficult row to hoe despite appearances to the contrary. In the face of stiffer competition than ever before, it needs to maintain its status as the luxury flagship, the technological leader for the brand and a pointer to the future of luxury motoring...

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...
