2018 Hyundai Sonata Review

See the full article here. More often than not, when a car company does a facelift of an existing model, it does its very best to get away with calling the revision an ‘all-new’ car, but that’s not the case with the updated Hyundai Sonata, even if the 2018 model sees major design and mechanical changes...

2018 Abarth 595 review

See the full article here. Revised pricing headlines the changes for the 2018 Abarth 595 range, which is no mean feat, because in real terms the diminutive hot hatch was already something of a bargain. Value isn’t the only story, though, with subtle specification additions sure to make that of the scorpion badge even more appealing...

Lexus LC500 and Lexus LFA, side-by-side

See the full article here. Even in this industry, there are those most cherished of cars like Lexus’s ultra-exclusive Lexus LFA Supercar, which only a handful of journalists have ever driven. So, when the opportunity came around for Alborz to push a Lexus LFA around a private test facility for the very first time, miraculously, his schedule freed up and he was on a plane bound for Sydney...

Kia Stinger V6 on the dyno! Surprised with the numbers?

We took our company-owned Kia Stinger to Chasers and strapped it onto the dyno to find out just how much power it makes at the wheels. In stock form, it produces 272kW of power at the flywheel, or 365hp. Were you surprised with the numbers it spat out on the dyno?

Mazda Vision Coupe concept showcases next-generation design language

See the full article here. As is a tradition for the Japanese brand, it has used the bi-annual Tokyo motor show to showcase a vision concept, following on from the previous show’s RX-Vision. The Vision Coupe concept, which has four doors, not two, is not an extension of the RX-Vision concept, but more than likely a showcase for the future of large sedans from Mazda...

2018 Hyundai Kona 1.6 Highlander AWD v Toyota C-HR Koba AWD comparison

See the full article here. Despite making a fashionably late arrival to the small crossover market, the 2018 Hyundai Kona has certainly made a grand entrance on appearances alone. Funky? You bet. Even against the hot sellers and mover’n’shakers – CX-3, ASX, XV, HR-V – largely responsible for skyrocketing the popularity of form and fashion over pure family-friendly functionality, the Kona appears, literally, to lob into trendy leading edge of style...

2018 Jaguar XJR575 review

If you always thought the Jaguar XJ was a bit of a pussycat, Jaguar has well and truly fixed that issue. Jaguar's engineering team has taken the XJR's wick, wound it up, and shot the car out of a cannon into a tin of blue paint. And, the end result is this tyre destroying limousine, aptly called the 2018 Jaguar XJR575, which replaces the outgoing XJR...

2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake review

It's a car the Brits have been hiding from us for some time – the Jaguar XF Sportbrake delivers SUV practicality, but holds back on the domineering stance an SUV commands on the road. Instead, the Jaguar XF Sportbrake offers a stunning physique that can't be mistaken for anything other than a Jaguar. Just look at it...
